Great troll

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Great troll is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation.

These purple-skinned troll monarchs are among the strongest monsters in a Demon Lord's armies.


These purple, porcine powerhouses fail to bring anything new to the table, but they boast bolstered bulk compared to their predecessors and are all too happy to show it off in battle. Its position as the strongest of the trolls was eventually usurped by the Terror troll, though it also finds itself in battle with the Stouts of Mortamor's army over who's the top troll in troll society.
