Graugs are beasts encountered in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor . Graugs are titanic, amphibious creatures that live within the Sea of Rhûn. They are troll-like in appearance and possess vicious claws and teeth to ensnare and mutilate their prey. Despite their lack of intelligence, they can still be very tough to bring down due to their size and durability.
Graugs can be dominated by Talion to fight by his side. Dominating a Graug also allows Talion to ride it.
- It is mentioned in a gameplay with the lead programmer and designer that the Graugs literally eat trolls for breakfast.
- Graugs are never mentioned in any of of the works of Tolkien, however they are featured in Lord of the Rings Online.
- Graugs are commonly confused with trolls, but Graugs are much larger and will sometimes eat trolls as a source of food.
