Rock Trolls are a humanoid creature species featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. They are native to Arendelle, and first appear in the first episode of the fourth season.

Rock Trolls are based on the species of the same name from the Disney film, Frozen.

Biology and Culture

Rock trolls are humanoid, small creatures with stone skin, black eyes and large ears and noses. They do not have hair, but have green grass instead of scalp hair and eyebrows. When they sleep, they curl into a moss rock. According to Oaken, they are "quite nice" creatures.

Some Rock Trolls are able to use a special type of magic in relation to memories. ("A Tale of Two Sisters", "Family Business", "The Snow Queen")

On-Screen Notes

  • When Belle is looking up information on how to retrieve lost memories, she is reading a page about rock trolls. It says:[1]

Trolls are creatures who are said to be formidable
telepaths and are said to ably employ subtle acts
of persuasion to bend others to their will.

Some earlier scolars [sic] even went so far as to
say that they have the ability to restore
that have been lost.

Trolls can cast powerful enchantments – in particular spells used
to wrest someone's heart or mind.

They do this by the emanation of a magical frequency generated
through the crystals they wear about their body. The power of
this working is increased by their entire number acting
in unison.

The crystals made of andradite and peridot are worn by the
trolls also as protection and defense from the evil around
them including the machinations of men.

Props Notes

  • According to an unseen prison book prop page from "Leaving Storybrooke", auctioned off on eBay in May 2019,[2] the unhappy ending Wish Rumplestiltskin had planned for Alice involved an encounter with a group of rock trolls on a frozen tundra:

    Only just then, the rock beneath her bum began to quake. Startled, Alice sprung to her feet, but the rock rolled toward her as if in pursuit! She turned to fee, but another rock from nearby her side rolled her way. And another from behind her. And a dozen more, from all directions. They circled, herding Alice through an obvious attack pattern! Alice readied herself. For what, she did not know when -- The rocks unfurled themselves, as rocks almost never do. Arms and legs formed on each as one after the other they revealed themselves to be little stone men. None were taller than Alice's knee, but together they made an intimating force. Alice knew exactly what they were: Trolls. She had experience with trolls, but she didn't know what to make of this little army that surrounded her now. She was scared --
