* In Chapter 1 of ''VideoGame/TheWitcher2AssassinsOfKings'' there is a troll who keeps a nearby bridge and demands tolls. He's developed a drinking habit over the murder of his wife and turned violent and lazy. The governor needs him returned to his normal, sober, bridgekeeping ways or killed so that a proper (and expensive) maintenance effort can begin.

* In the ''StarFairies'' special, the titular fairies are blocked from flying and needed to cross a bridge, only to find it guarded by a large hairy creature who agrees to let them cross only if they can grant his wish, and makes them guess what the wish is. Whisper rightly guesses [[spoiler:he wishes he didn't have to guard the bridge any more, and she conjures up an automatic toll.]]

* In some old ''{{Ultima}}'' games, any time you step on a bridge, there's a chance that you'll get a RandomEncounter made up entirely of trolls.

* A special event ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' parodies the Monty Python scene above, in which TheChosenOne's path is blocked by a bridgekeeper, who will only let him pass if he answers three questions. If he is unable to answer the questions correctly, he will [[CriticalExistenceFailure spotaneously die.]] If he answers all three correctly, he is allowed to pass. However, if he answers the final question with a question, the bridgekeeper himself will be unable to answer, and thus will die (and drop his robes, which are equal to Combat Armor).
