"Upon first glance, AAARRRGGHH!!! appears to be a hulking brute, but in reality, he's a gentle giant. 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?"
AAARRGGHHH!!! used to live amongst the Krubera tribe, and eventually went to work for Gunmar's army and served as his biggest minion. Eventually, AAARRRGGHH!!! gave up his evil ways and became a pacifist.
He relocated to Heartstone Trollmarket, where he became Blinky's new assistant, and aided them in training the Trollhunter, Kanjigar. For hundreds of years, the two helped Kanjigar protect Trollmarket from danger and threats to expose their world to the mortals.
One day, Gunmar's son, Bular invaded Arcadia and was set out destroy Kanjigar. When Kanjigar went out on night patrol, Blinky and AAARRRGGHH!!! stayed in the library to wait for him to return home. When Kanjigar didn't come back, Blinky and AAARRRGGHH!!! became deeply worried and set out when the sun started to rise. They went under the bridge where Kanjigar was battling Bular, and found Kanjigar's remains turned to stone, leaving the two deeply devastated and stunned in silence. They went back into the drain pipe to keep out of the harsh sunlight. When Blinky started to feel sorry for himself, the two saw Jim and Toby riding on their bikes and were shocked to find that the amulet chose Jim as the new Trollhunter.
They went back to the library to read the Trollmarket recap book to make sure there were previous human Trollhunters, but to their shock, it turns out that Jim really is the first human Trollhunter. When Kanjigar's son, Draal arrived, Blinky informed him of Kanjigar's demise. However, Draal figured that he was the next Trollhunter, due to being Kanjigar's son. Blinky and AAARRRGGHH!!! did not have the heart to tell him he wasn't.
Meeting Jim and Toby
Blinky and AAARRRGGHH!!! go over to Jim's house to inform him of his new destiny as the Trollhunter, which leaves Jim and Toby in shock. However, Toby seems to have bonded quickly with AAARRRGGHH!!!
On Jim’s first night as the new Trollhunter, he runs into Bular, who starts to chase him and Toby down the street. Luckily, Blinky and AAARRRGGHH!!! manage to help them get into Trollmarket, where Bular can’t enter.
AAARRRGGHH!!! is a huge Troll with rock-like gray skin, green eyes, and a dark green beard and hair on his shoulders and chest. He has two short horns and a large black nose, and patterns on his arms, knees, and chest.
AAARRRGGHH!!! is a very gentle and soft-spoken troll, who tries to help everyone and avoid conflict. When he was part of the Gumm-Gumm army, he was more scary and violent, but eventually, he realized he didn't like being evil, so he became a pacifist and relocated to Trollmarket. Whenever he gets angry or shows his original self, he shows remorse and guilt, but his friends are always there to assure him they still trust him as their friend.
Toby is the human best friend of AAARRRGGHH!! He became Toby's guardian and the two gradually warmed up, bonding over video games and food. Toby was the one that he was most protective of out of all his friends, even breaking his vow of pacifism to protect him and Jim from Bular, shattering him. Even when his violent past as a defected GumGum soldier was revealed, Toby still considered him his wingman.
Even when dying and offered the chance to return home with the Krubera, his people, he declined so that he could stay with Toby and his friends. When AAARRRGGHH!! was turned to stone saving Toby during the battle for Trollmarket, Toby was so distraught by his friend's death that he eventually ending up shattering Angor Rot, killing him and freeing the souls of the warriors he had entrapped over the centuries.
When AAARRGGGHHH!! was revived, Toby was more than glad to have his wingman back in the team and vice versa.
Blinky is AAARRRGGHHH's other best friend. Blinky often helps AAARRGHHH with controlling his temper and AAARRRGGHH often helps Blinky when it comes to his problems. The two first met when AAARRRGGHH!! gave up his life as a violent GumGum and the two have been partners ever since.
AAARRRGGHHH!!! took quite an interest in Jim and the two got along pretty well. AAARRGGHH!!!, along with Blinky, was one of the first trolls that Jim met. Also, he is one of the very few trolls that have a personal relationship with Jim.
He is the muscle of the team as his strength is great enough for Bular (though he doesn’t use this strength often, due to the fact that he is a pacifist).
Strength and Combat
He was probably a former general of Gunmar as he might have great combat skills and still has (though his strength seems to be stronger when angry). He was able to hold the weight of Blinky in one hand with no sign of struggle as he has never really been shown to struggle while lifting heavy weights.
Endurance and Stamina
As his body has been shown to be able to take attacks from his enemies, he has proven to be quite durable enough to take enough trauma. His stamina has shown to the point that he is never exhausted since it would be impossible for him to run or fight for a long period of time due to his immense size and weight.
