The Tusseladd, also known as the Tosserlad, is a minor antagonist in the 2010 Norwegian horror film Trollhunter.
The Tusseladd was the first troll to be seen in the film and the first to be killed. It is possible that it was also the troll to give the character Thomas rabies.
The Tusseladd is a tall lanky troll with a thin body and long tail ending in a lion-like tuft of fur. Although it appears to possess three heads, only the Tusseladd's middle head is an actual head with a brain and sensory organs. The other two are merely head-shaped growths with noses and no brains; Hans claims that they are used to attract females.

The Tusseladd is killed by Hans the government-sanctioned trollhunter after he exposes to a powering UV light cannon, at which time it turns to stone and crumbles.
