The Boss Troll is an enemy from Final Fantasy III. It can be fought in the Saronia Catacombs. They are not a huge threat to the party if they are level 40 or higher, though they tend to attack in pairs or with other monsters. Physical attacks are more than enough to bring them down.


Etymology Edit

A troll is a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In Old Norse sources, beings described as trolls dwelt in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, lived together in small family units, and were rarely helpful to humans. Later, in Scandinavian folklore, trolls became beings in their own right where they lived far from human habitation, were not Christianized, and were considered dangerous. Depending on the region their appearance varied from ugly and slow-witted to looking and behaving exactly like human beings. Trolls are sometimes associated with particular landmarks, which at times are explained as formed from a troll exposed to sunlight.
