Trolls are large, hairy, apelike creatures with sharp fangs, claws, and long powerful arms. These creatures have three beady black eyes, their skulls being easily recognized by their three eye sockets. Commonly found in forests, such as the Rift, Trolls also inhabit caves, ruins, and mountains. While not very intelligent, Trolls compensate with tough physical prowess and the ability to regenerate health. Many Trolls display a weakness to fire damage, spells, weapon enchantments, and poisons that deal Fire Damage or raise susceptibility to fire damage.

These giant Armored Troll's are fierce animal companions. The Dawnguard use these Trolls to fight Vampires. One can buy an Armored Troll for 500 from Gunmar, who has an infinite amount of Trolls, in Fort Dawnguard. An Armored Troll will leave the Dragonborn's services if told to wait somewhere for too long. The Armored Troll counts as an animal companion, so the Dragonborn cannot have an armored Troll and a dog at the same time. There are two types of Armored Trolls: a normal Troll, and a Frost Troll. To get an Armored Frost Troll, the Dragonborn must be a higher level (presumably around 40).

Frost Trolls are larger in size than those found in Cyrodiil, but move more slowly as well. Frost Trolls are considerably stronger than regular Trolls, and are tough adversaries.
Trolls are weak to fire damage and resistant to frost damage. An area loading screen also mentions their ability to regenerate health as well as their weakness to fire. Trolls should be taken out as fast as possible as a prolonged battle will allow them to heal their wounds.

- According to the book Troll Slaying, the best way to kill a troll is by using the destruction spell Flames and any type of shield.
- Trolls can open doors and follow you into buildings, such as High Hrothgar.
- A reference to the old Troll under the bridge tale can be found south of Markarth, as there is a dead Troll under a bridge.
- Trolls are immune to the Savage Strike and Devastating Blow perks.
- The alchemist in Riften refers to how hard it is to acquire Painted Troll Fat, referring to the unique Oblivion ingredient.
- Trolls in general, thanks to their high punishment threshold and regenerative abilities, are great for grinding. Melee weapons, armor, and bows can all gain immense skill from one troll, and all schools of magic can be used against one or in one's presence.
- To get the most ot of this, make sure that the troll is accompanied by another reasonably tough enemy (to prevent performing a killing move on the troll and/or other enemy and ending your grinding session prematurely) and memorize troll spawning points. Once you are satisfied, simply kill both creatures.
