Lord of the Rings Races: Trolls

Trolls are huge creatures that stand at least ten feet tall. They are evil hearted and many serve Sauron. It has been said that they were made "in mockery" of Ents. Many trolls cannot survive sunlight.However, Sauron managed to breed trolls that were unaffected by sunlight.

After Frodo was wounded at Weathertop with a Morgul blade by the Witchking, the Hobbits and Aragorn made camp by three trolls that had turned to stone. These were the three trolls that Bilbo had encountered on his adventure to the Lonely Mountain.

When the Fellowship travelled through Moria, they found Balin's Tomb. They discovered the fate of Balin's colony and stayed too long. They were then attacked by a force of Orcs who had brought a Cave Troll with them. The cave troll looked to have seriously wounded Frodo which threw the rest of the Fellowship into a frenzy and finally kill it.

When Frodo, Sam and Gollum arrived at the Black Gate of Mordor, large trolls (Olog-hai) that are unaffected by the daylight can be seen guarding the gate as well as operating the huge mechanisms that open and close the gate.

Both during the siege of Minas Tirith and later at the battle at the Black Gate of Mordor, the Olog-hai trolls are part of Sauron's army and usually armed with huge warhammers or maces.
