The Earth Troll is an enemy in the Dawn of Souls and succeeding versions of the original Final Fantasy. It is a palette swap of the Troll. The Earth Troll is found in the deepest levels (B31 - B39) of the Whisperwind Cove in the levels resembling the Cavern of Earth, and in the level resembling the Overworld.
The Earth Troll has the most HP of its kind; Fira spell are the best choice, though its fairly high Magic Defense may warrant more than one casting. Defeating it gives the party a fairly large amount of EXP.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
troll is a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In Old Norse sources, beings described as trolls dwelt in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, lived together in small family units, and were rarely helpful to humans. Later, in Scandinavian folklore, trolls became beings in their own right where they lived far from human habitation, were not Christianized, and were considered dangerous. Depending on the region their appearance varied from ugly and slow-witted to looking and behaving exactly like human beings. Trolls are sometimes associated with particular landmarks, which at times are explained as formed from a troll exposed to sunlight.A
