By Kanjigar's honor, I would have made your death swift and painless, but, for that act of COWARDICE, I will show you no mercy when I take back what's RIGHTFULLY mine.
―Draal to Jim

Win, Lose, or Draal is the sixth episode of Trollhunters.

Official Synopsis

Jim preps for a high-stakes rematch against Draal, the amulet's seemingly rightful heir. But their animosity gives way to a surprising partnership.


Everything comes into perspective when Jim discovers his re-match with Draal is to the death. When he sees that this might be his last time seeing his loved ones, he decides to leave some notes to Claire and Barbara, explaining everything and how much they mean to him. 




  • Jim's neighbor is heard to have a dog called Arther during this episode. Earlier in "Becoming: Part 1", Jim's neighbor is heard to have another dog called Parker.
  • Draal becomes Jim's new troll friend in this episode, as well as his protector.
  • Title: The title refers to the term "win, lose, or draw", only altering the final word with Draal's name as this is the time when Draal and Jim duel each other to the death.
  • Running Gag: A troll attempts to eavesdrop on Blinky discussing secretive trollhunter information, oftentimes with Blinky reacting with "Do you mind?" and the unnamed troll responding nonchalantly with "Whatever." This is shown in the following episode, as well.
