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

Physical Description

Gruesomes are pale, slugs-like monsters with no face and do not speak (only growl and moan).


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

Most of them have been killed by a Trollhunter named Araknak the Agile. 

Powers & Abilities

The 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 as liquid through narrow spaces.


They possess about two-to-three weaknesses: a Dwärkstone (which vaporizes them upon being stuffed into its body) and flour, along with salt (which can harden and break their bodies).


  • When the Gruesome disguises himself by wearing an outfit, it somewhat resembles The DC Character the Question.
  • In The Felled, Gruesomes can also be killed with salt.
  • The word "gruesome" means to be repulsive, hideous, grisly, etc.
