The word Ogre comes from French but many cultures have folklore about Ogres, from Europe to Japan and everywhere in between. Ogres are usually depicted as large humanoid monsters, strong, not very intelligent, hairy, fierce, cruel, and love to devour children and adults. Because of their lack of intelligence there are many stories of men defeating Ogres. Some tales say that Ogres are shape shifters, and live in amazing underground palaces or in the clouds. A female Ogre is called an Ogress and the offspring of an Ogre is called Ogree.
