The term trolling originally comes from fishing, rather than [[AllTrollsAreDifferent the fantasy creature]]. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trolling_(fishing) Trolling in a fishing context]] means casting a baited line out in the water and dragging it through the water behind you as you move. The idea in the Internet context is that you set out some bait in much the same way and watch as your victim grabs it and writhes for your amusement, soley ForTheEvulz. Malcontents on the internet [[{{GIFT}} protected by anonymity]] have been doing this for years, hence the widespread usage of the term.

* This is pretty much the whole point of Creator/SachaBaronCohen's repertoire, especially in ''Series/DaAliGShow'', ''Film/{{Borat}}'', and ''Film/{{Bruno}}''. His three most well-known characters are Ali G, a British [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy wannabe gangsta]]; Borat Sagdiyev, a Kazakh FunnyForeigner; and Bruno, a CampGay Austrian. All his movies are mockumentaries where his characters interview people or make other real life appearances where Cohen, in-character, will say or do outrageous things to upset people.

* Kokichi from ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' might as well beat Monokuma and Nagito in terms of the biggest troll in the Franchise/DanganRonpa series. In the demo, he likes to tease Ki-bo a bit and then tells Kaede that he is an evil secret society leader only to state he is a liar afterwards. In the game proper, he went on to [[spoiler: fake his own death]], and [[spoiler: before his breakdown in Chapter 5, he sometimes let out his "horror sprites" once or twice just to scare the shit of people.]]

* Nova Shine, Aegis, and Celestia in ''FanFic/TheApprenticeTheStudentAndTheCharlatan''.
** Nova tends to go to certain lengths to irritate Twilight Sparkle, usually by rearranging books. He has also put another pony off balance by letting them know that Princess Celestia could banish them or imprison them if they aren't careful around Twilight.
** Aegis gets a rise out of Nova every chance he can get. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment His first appearance is even scaring Nova into thinking he was being arrested.]]
** Princess Celestia constantly makes rather suggestive implications around Luna during the arc in the past. She tries it on Nova too, but Nova seems to be the only one immune to her trolling. Back in the present day, she's delighted when she manages to fluster Twilight with another such inplication.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, Sanguine, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[FunPersonified Debauchery]] and [[TheHedonist Hedonism]], is basically a god-level troll. He enjoys trying to tempt or trick mortals into sin using various vices, mostly because [[ItAmusedMe It Amuses Him]]. For example, in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', he asks you to crash the dinner party of a stuck-up hostess and cast a spell which strips everyone naked (including ''you''). In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', he gets you black out drunk, leads you on [[WhatDidIDoLastNight some crazy adventures across Skyrim]], and leaves you to pick up the pieces the next morning.

** Sheogorath, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[MadGod Madness]], is one as well. Sometimes, it seems he just likes to point and laugh. One of his ''16 Accords of Madness'' has him challenging fellow Daedric Prince [[EgomaniacHunter Hircine]] to combat-by-champion. Hircine fielded a huge, saw-toothed, dagger-clawed, vicious [[OurWerecreaturesAreDifferent werebeast]]. Sheogorath revealed his champion to be... a songbird. The tiny bird then proceeded to goad the werebeast into tearing itself apart by perching on it, singing and then flitting away, over and over. The bird won. Sheogorath's sole reason for any of this was, apparently, that [[ItAmusedMe he finds Hircine's fury hilarious]].

** Jaime gets a kick out of verbally taunting Catelyn, and doesn't seem to mind whether he gets beaten with a rock or bound in a dozen chains so long as he can piss Catelyn off. And when Catelyn decides to free Jaime and have Brienne escort him to King's Landing, he taunts Brienne non-stop through an endless stream of insults. It's amazing that Brienne hasn't strangled him yet. Probably because she swore to get him to King's Landing safely (for a given value of safe) but ''still'', Jaime cannot ''shut up''.
--> '''Brienne:''' I will NOT let you provoke me.
--> '''Jaime:''' I already have!
