|“||Now, ogres - oh, they're much worse. They'll make a suit from your freshly peeled skin! They'll shave your liver, squeeze the jelly from your eyes! Actually, it's quite good on toast.||„|
|~ Shrek describes ogres.|
Ogres are large and particularly ugly humanoids, they can range in intelligence and mannerisms, but tend to be extremely stupid and violent.
To qualify as an Ogre, a character must display inhuman appearances not often seen in regular Giants, making them more "monster" than "giant." They must also feed primarily on human flesh (or at the least sapient beings) and display great levels of violence. Oni from Japanese mythology also qualify as Ogres.
Ogres are also generally much smaller than many giants - while giants in folklore and myth are often hundreds of feet tall most Ogres are only slightly larger than a human, though their are many Ogres that are significantly larger - few Ogres grow to the same colossal heights as True Giants, however.
