Gruesomes are scavenger-like creatures that feed on the remains of deceased Trolls


At the first sign of war, Gruesomes gather to witness the carnage and after the bloodshed, they devour the remains of the fallen trolls left on the battlefield. 

Several of them had been killed by a Trollhunter named Araknak the Agile

Physical Description

Gruesomes are pale, faceless slug-like monsters who are unable to communicate normally and can only growl and moan. They can copy human speech as one copied the Creepslayerz's conversation in the episode "Creepslayerz".

Powers & Abilities

Gruesomes have a body of malleable slime that they can change to their liking, making themselves immune to any physical damage. Their bodies also allows them to move fluidly through narrow spaces.


They possess about two-to-three weaknesses: Dwärkstones (which causes them to explode when placed near or inside their bodies) and flour, along with salt (which can harden and break their bodies).
