Mountain-trolls were a large type of Troll which were closely related to Cave-trolls and Hill-trolls. They were allies of Orcs.


Like all Trolls, Mountain-trolls originated from Morgoth's twisting and crossbreeding of other creatures of the world and were minions of Sauron.

Mountain Trolls could be found in the mountains of Middle-earth. Their type helped move the great battering ram Grond into place during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, which they wielded and shattered the large gates of Minas Tirith. Members of the species also were seen opening the gates of the Morannon.

Physical appearanceEdit

Mountain-trolls were very large, larger than Hill-trolls and had brownish skin.


The mountain-trolls make dangerous opponents in battle. The trolls are smarter than Cave-trolls, and their power to lift massive objects to use as a weapon makes them deadly. It is assumed to be strong enough for other heavy tasks as well. They are also stronger than cave trolls due to their harsh environment.

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit


Mountain-trolls were shown in Peter Jackson's The Return of the King film during Siege of Gondor.

Video gamesEdit
