Trolls are a species that appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They are an ancient race of mobians on Sonic's World. In the present day, the trolls are virtually extinct, with Walter Naugus and Wendy Naugus being the sole members remaining.
Trolls are apparently quite grotesque in appearance with large pointy ears, claws, and long tails.
Characteristics and culture
Though not much is know about trolls, the are famous for their mastery of crystals and crystalline technology.
Powers and abilities
Trolls are described as being proficient in magic, including the only known modern members of the species. They are also able to shape-shift, fire energy bolts, communicate telepathically through their horns, and control the minds of others.
In ancient times, the trolls founded the Second Great Civilization on a land called Pancardina, though their culture was felt worldwide, bringing about a new age of prosperity and order with their cystalline magic which they would earn renown for through history. The trolls worshipped a being named Ixis and harnessed the pure power that it possessed. They increased their power through the use of the crystals, which they mined in many different locations, such as Hidden Palace Zone. With this power, they controlled Mobians and used them as their slaves.
The Trolls' era was ended by a catastrophic event that blasted Pancardina into a series of islands, with the Trolls being all but wiped out overnight.
