Your life more important. Not pet. Wingman.
―AAARRRGGHH!!! to Toby, renouncing his pacifist oath[src]

AAARRRGGHH!!! (real name: Aarghaumont) is one of the main stars in the Tales of Arcadia franchise, serving as the pentagonist of Trollhunters (and its upcoming film, Rise of the Titans), a minor (later major) character of 3Below, and a major character of Wizards.

He is the former general of the Gumm-Gumms, best friends with Blinky Galadrigal, and the "wingman" of Toby Domzalski.

Official Biography

"Upon first glance, AAARRRGGHH!!! appears to be a hulking brute, but in reality, he's a gentle giant with a limited choice of words. He often speaks in simple sentences such as Jim Good. Once a feared lieutenant for Gunmar's army, AAARRRGGHH!!! has since renounced his heinous ways and has joined the good Trolls. A reformed fighter, AAARRRGGHH!!! has adopted a zen-like attitude for pacifism, avoiding conflict. As threats grow and stakes rise, will AAARRRGGHH!!! remain a pacifist for long?"

History

Main article: AAARRRGGHH!!!/History

Physical Description

In designing AAARRRGGHH!!! it was all about making this huge imposing character that all the same time would be welcoming and charming. The 3D team did an awesome job translating the design into 3D, which reinforced that idea.
―The Team at Headless Animations Studios[src]

AAARRRGGHH!!! is a huge Krubera troll with rock-like gray skin, green eyes, and a dark green beard and hair on his shoulders, back and chest. He has four short horns and a large black nose, and patterns on his arms, knees, waist and chest.

When AAARRRGGHH!!! is overcome with anger or he is in an uncontrollable rage, the patterns on his skin light up with a green engravings, similar to the krubera's blue patterns, and his eyes turn completely black with glowing green pupils.

Back when he was a general of Gunmar's Gumm Gumm Army, AAARRRGGHH!!! had six horns in tow rows that were sharp and pointy, wore fierce armor, white war paint on his face, a nose ring, and his eyes were constantly glowing green.

Personality

From the beginning, AAARRRGGHH!!! was written to be the most lovable creature—the best friend we would all want to have and a protector for Toby, Jim, and Claire in the midst of the mayhem that unfolds in Arcadia. It was always important that you would fall in love with him immediately so that Jim and the audience understood why the troll world was worth saving and protecting. His design is incredibly appealing—his huge, potentially threatening physique is balanced by his sweet wide eyed expression and his furry mane. Who AAARRRGGHH!!! becomes as a friend and a troll is even more poignant once Usurna and her tribe are introduced and we realize where AAARRRGGHH!!! came from. He is unique despite his fact that there are others who look just like him, others who seem devoid of warmth or friendship.
―Christina Steinberg, Executive Producer[src]

AAARRRGGHH!!! is a fun-loving, loyal, friendly, and gentle giant, who has a tragic history from childhood. When he was taken by the Gumm-Gumms at a tender age, his speech was permanently impaired and doesn't speak as elegantly as the other Krubera trolls. He's also not very bright, as he forms simple sentences and does not understand big words, constantly confused by Blinky's large vocabulary.

In the past, AAARRRGGHH!!! was once a violent Gumm-Gumm, raised to eat innocent humans and was the general of Gunmar's army. However, after he renounced his flesh-eating ways, he became more gentle and friendly, even making an oath to never kill anyone and becomes a pacifist.

There are times when AAARRRGGHH!!!'s rage happens unexpectedly, like when Toby plays a violent video game which scares AAARRRGGHH!!! into his Gumm-Gumm episode. After becoming Toby's bodyguard, AAARRRGGHH!!! was reluctant, due to his aggressive history, yet Toby assures him that he has nothing to be ashamed of and instead plays more friendly games with each other. After which, AAARRRGGHH!!! grows more confident in his strength and begins to become more of a fighter than a "pet", renouncing his pacifist oath to protect his friends instead.

Powers & Abilities

Powers

  • Krubera Troll Physiology: As a born Krubera (which are bred to be fighters) and a former Gumm-Gumm general, AAARRRGGHH!!! is one of the strongest trolls in Trollmarket, despite being a pacifist for hundreds of years.
    • Superhuman Strength: AAARRRGGHH!!! is strong enough to overpower and throw a weakening Gunmar into a wall, crumbling debris on top of him. He is also able to lift a giant boulder on top of his head with no strain.
    • Superhuman Endurance: As a troll, AAARRRGGHH!!! can endure more than an average human.
      • Superhuman Durability: Thanks to his stone for skin, AAARRRGGHH!!! is able to resist attacks and damages more than an average human. He is able to take the savage brutality of the Krubera, but was severely weakened. He was even able to withstand Tronos's lightning attacks with incredible ease.
      • Superhuman Stamina: AAARRRGGHH!!! can physically exert himself for long periods of time without tiring or straining.
    • Enhanced Speed: AAARRRGGHH!!! is shown to be fast enough to outrun a horde of goblins and Bular.
    • Superhuman Agility: Despite his large structure, AAARRRGGHH!!! is fast and agile enough to outrun Jim throughout the Hero's Forge and its obstacles, as shown in "Bittersweet Sixteen", and can swing through streetlamps and trees.
    • Superhuman Senses: AAARRRGGHH!!!’s senses are much more acute than a human's.
      • Superhuman Smell: After his resurrection, his sense of smell has augmented to the point where he could trace the scent of another, similar to that of a bloodhound.
    • Matter Indigestion: As a troll, AAARRRGGHH!!! is capable of consuming and digesting any substance without any problems. However, he doesn't often like to eat real human food.
    • Longevity: As a troll, AAARRRGGHH!!! is capable of living for hundreds of years, but he is still vulnerable to death and can fall in battle.
  • Entering the Void Between Worlds: After his resurrection, AAARRRGGHH!!! gains the ability to use the Soothscryer to enter the Void Between Worlds, as he is the first troll outsider to walk through the line between life and death. He also becomes a perfect vessel for a deceased Trollhunter, such as Kanjigar the Courageous.

Abilities

  • Combatant: AAARRRGGHH!!! is a very skilled warrior, having to have been a general in Gunmar's army before turning to the side of good. He has shown to be able to go horn-to-horn with Gunmar himself (who was weak at the time) and even Bular.

Weaknesses

  • Direct Sunlight: AAARRRGGHH!!! has a troll's natural vulnerability to sunlight, which burns and turns him into stone on instant contact.
  • Feral Instincts: AAARRRGGHH!!! is also prone to feral instincts and can be easily angered and/or provoked, as most notably shown in "Adventures in Trollsitting".

Trivia

  • In the 2015 book, AAARRRGGHH!!! was female. This is eventually revealed to the human characters because of AAARRRGGHH!!! lacked the traditional female gender characteristics that would be recognizable to humans and was initially believed to be a male troll. However, in the series adaptation, AAARRRGGHH!!'s gender was switched to male, presumably to avoid that confusion.
  • AAARRRGGHH!!! is the first character to be revived in the series, followed by Angor Rot.
    • Following this, he is also the first living outsider since the beginning of time to visit the sacred realm of the Void Between Worlds, since he walked the line between life and death.
  • AAARRRGGHH!!! is the only Krubera troll in the series who has hair, as his other Krubera brethren have no hair, but have similar horns.
  • In "Recipe for Disaster", Blinky stated that AAARRRGGHH!!! defected from the Gumm-Gumms before the Battle of Killahead (confirmed in the final series, Wizards), yet the graphic novel The Secret History of Trollkind depicted AAARRRGGHH!!! fighting for Gunmar during the said battle, only to inexplicably save Kanjigar from Bular. They both then fled the battlefield before Deya the Deliverer initiated the Convergence.
  • As shown in "Dogfight Days of Summer", AAARRRGGHH!!! has the highest score on Go-Go Sushi with a total of 809,790,353 points.
  • AAARRRGGHH!!! shares many similarities with the Hulk from the Marvel Universe:
    • Both are incredibly strong with a huge build.
    • Both are green.
    • Both are subject to violent tendencies when provoked.
    • Both have limited speech pattern.
    • Both are voiced by Fred Tatasciore.
