In some cases these may be considered giant humanoids.

The only common trait most trolls of any mythos share is their unnaturally fast regeneration, in some this may be so fast you need special methods to kill them. However, even this is not always present. Another trait trolls often have in common is that they're far more ugly than the other demi-humans such as ogres, orcs or goblins.

Note that like with many fae from folk lore, the name alone should not be used to determine if the things are trolls. Rather, look at the traits they have. For example, Tolkienin trolls are better described as ogres.
