Cave Trolls are a race of Trolls found within the caves of the Misty Mountains.


Cave-trolls are unintelligent creatures. They use their sense of smell more often than sight, generally being brought into combat by a chain around their neck, led along by a goblin tamer. In combat, Cave-trolls usually kill the figures that foolishly get too close to them, friend or foe, strategy notwithstanding. Cave-trolls, of all the types of trolls, are fairly tall in stature, being taller than the hill trolls of Mordor, but not as intelligent.


Cave-trolls are omnivores, eating both meat and plants.


Usually these trolls live with groups of goblins and fight alongside them or in groups of two or three in small caves. They are used by the armies of Sauron (though Sauron would typically forego these trolls in favor of Olag-Hai, a stronger and smarter troll that could move in the sunlight without turning into stone). It is known that Cave-trolls turn into stone when exposed to direct sunlight.
