Rate this Mythological creature: The Ogre?




An ogre is a being usually depicted as a large, hideous, manlike monster that eats human beings. Ogres frequently feature in mythology, folklore, and fiction throughout the world. They appear in many classic works of literature, and are most often described in fairy tales and folklore as eating babies.

In mythology, ogres are often depicted as inhumanly large and tall and having a disproportionately large head, abundant hair, unusually colored skin, a voracious appetite, and a strong body. Ogres are closely linked with giants and with human cannibals in mythology. In both folklore and fiction, giants are often given ogrish traits (such as the giants in "Jack and the Beanstalk" and "Jack the Giant Killer", the Giant Despair in The Pilgrim's Progress, and the j├Âtnar of Norse mythology); while ogres may be given giantish traits.

  • I really like some versions, such as your fist picture, but some are just lame such as the one in your second picture. Overall they make for good enemies for the heroes to face off against in stories, and that is why I like them.

    • What do you think of the one in the third pic?

    • That one looks too much like a human to me. If you showed me the picture and didn't tell me it was a monster, I would just assume it was some evil guy.

  • 2/5 It's a classic I guess, but honestly pretty boring. Really an ogre's just a big ugly humanoid. No special powers or special traits or anything really. Just big and strong and ugly, which is honestly not that interesting.

  • Is the ogre 6'9? Then he probably won't eat me. But honestly I don't like them. This mythical creature is a parody of giants. 😰
