Torok the Troll is the main antagonist of the 1986 comedy-horror film "Troll" - which is considered by some to be one of the worst movies of all time (along with its two unrelated sequels): however like many comedy-horrors, it has gained somewhat of a cult following.
Torok is depicted as an ancient troll who lived long ago in a world where humans and magical creatures lived in relative harmony, which each of them inhabiting a kingdom that was equal in power but independent: Torok was not pleased with this however and gathered an army of magical creatures - Torok proceeded to wage war with humanity and claimed many lives as he sought to make magical creatures the rulers of the world (thus disrupting the balance of the realms).
Many centuries later Torok resurfaces in the modern world and sets about reclaiming the world and transforming it back into the fairy tale world of old while replacing humans with magical beings - his evil plans were opposed by a young boy named Harry Potter (not to be confused with the hero of the more famous Harry Potter franchise) with aid from a benevolent witch who had a past history with Torok (in fact she and Torok were once lovers, prior to his betrayal).
- Torok shared some similarities to the Leprechaun (from the Leprechaun series) but instead of being a comedic and sadistic demon Torok was actually rather serious in tone and was not driven so much out of malicious glee than extreme misguidance - he genuinely believed the world would be better off as a fairy tale realm and viewed humans with relative contempt (though he did show a twisted form of friendship with unique or special people).
- It is worth noting that Torok was not born a troll, he was transformed into one as part of a curse - however even before being a troll he was said to be a powerful wizard and upon becoming a troll he pretty much abandoned what little humanity he may have had, though later in the film it is shown that despite his hatred of humanity Torok still had some very human traits.
