"The Spiderwick Chronicles" video game is a loose adaptation of the film of the same name. When playing the game, the player eventually comes across a river troll guarding a bridge. It is not possible to defeat the troll at the first meeting, but the player can trick the river troll into falling asleep to get past him. After acquiring a specific weapon, the player can return to the troll and turn him to stone.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Play through the game until reaching the quest called "The River Troll." This is immediately after the quest where the player tames a griffin. Use the character "Simon" when facing the river troll.

  2. 2

    Attack the monster with Simon's splattergun, which pushes the troll toward the sunlight.

  3. 3

    Shoot the river troll with the splattergun until it is all the way into the sunlight. A brief cut scene will occur and the troll will turn to stone.

Tips and warnings

  • When meeting the troll before having acquired the splattergun, use the Will-o-the-Wisp to lure goblins to the river. The troll will go to sleep once he has eaten 10 goblins.
