A troll is a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In origin, the term troll was a generally negative synonym for a jötunn (plural jötnar), a being in Norse mythology. In Old Norse sources, beings described as trolls dwell in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, live together in small family units, and are rarely helpful to human beings. ~WikipediaTolkien's trolls were quite stupid, however; in Norse mythology trolls were magical. The Dungeons and Dragons troll had the ability to regenerate. From the artwork I've seen of D&D trolls I would say that DDO did a fine job.

EQ2 trolls always reminded me of Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

From the sublime (?) to the ridiculous. I give you the World of Warcraft troll. WoW has many types of trolls yet, remarkably, they all look the same. You'll want to read that last sentence sarcastically. Trolls are playable though why anyone would want to is beyond me.
