Attack Troll

An Attack Troll at Minas Tirith

"Attack Troll" is the term given to the elite trolls (Olog-hai) of Mordor who invaded Minas Tirith in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. They are distinguished by their armor, horned helmets, and massive spiked clubs. They are the most powerful troll seen in any film adaptation.

Appearances Edit

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Edit

In the third film, Attack Trolls appear immediately once Grond has broken the gates of Minas Tirith, entering and attacking the ranks of defenders alongside hundreds of orcs. They send multiple soldiers of Gondor flying with a swing of their weapon, and resist showers of arrows. Gandalf the White is shown to slay one of them, using both his staff and Glamdring.

The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II Edit

In Electronic Arts' RTS computer game The Battle for Middle-earth II and its expansion, Attack Trolls are available to the Mordor faction, and of all offensive units are strong against the largest variety of things: structures, cavalry, swordsmen, and archers.
