Hero Overview

No Troll left behind!
~ King Peppy in Trolls

Peppy, also referred to as King Peppy, is the retired king of the Pop Trolls and Poppy’s father. He's a major character in the opening storyline of Trolls, and has a suppporting role throughout the franchise.



In his youth, King Peppy was the heroic King who vowed to save his people by running away from the Bergens. He tends to fall back onto this tactic later in the movies. In the main storyline of Trolls, when Chef attacks during his daughter Poppy's party, he tells her that the surviving Trolls need to run. In Trolls World Tour, he suggests the same when Queen Barb announces her Rock World Tour.

Peppy doesn't always tell his daughter everything despite being Queen, believing that she should learn things when she's ready. He didn't tell her about the other Tribes because he felt she wasn't ready, but Barb's conquest of the Tribes forced him to reveal that secret to her. However, he is oblivious about the version of his Tribe history being changed in context.

King Peppy is shown as a wise teacher in Trolls: The Beat Goes On! and has sage advice on things, but he has his eccentric side as well. For example, in the episode Royal Review, he gives his daughter a frowny face in the primary vote to teach her a lesson, though he isn't clear what the lesson was himself.


Trolls Normal King Peppy is an orange-skinned Troll with pink frizzly hair, eyebrows and a mustache with grey streaks on them. He has a yellow nose and brown eyes. He wears a green and blue waistcoat, and green pants.

He often carries a blue walking stick that helps him walk, but also doubles as a microphone.

Adult As a young adult, Peppy had straight hair without grey streaks and a slightly longer mustache. He has the same pants that he wears as an elder, but also a dark green shirt and a blue cape. Although, he discarded those clothes down to white boxers throughout the escape from Bergen Town.

Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Normal His appearance is mostly the same as in Trolls. A notable difference is that he has less grey streaks on his hair (which in turn divide it into sections of different pink shades), with none on his eyebrows and mustache, both of which are longer and thicker.

Other Peppy was also seen with other outfits in certain episodes of the series.

Trolls World Tour= Normal He has the same design as in Trolls with a few improvements.

Trolls: TrollsTopia Normal He has the same appearance as in Trolls: The Beat Goes On!.

Skills & Abilities

He has most normal Troll abilities, as well as the abilities of his Tribe.

Due to his aging body, he has physical restrictions.

In the Trolls era, he was listed as a Rainbow Troll. His "True Colors" are unknown.


As a leader, Peppy was known for his strength of body and mind, matched by his determination and will to carry on. While how long his reign lasted is unknown as that information is unavailable, he was the King who successfully saved his people from Trollstice under the oath of "No Troll left behind!" on the day his daughter Princess Poppy was set to be devoured by King Gristle Jr.. It was also his duty to make new holidays, with "Funsgiving" being one of those holidays he declared.

As a leader, one of Peppy's duties is to protect his people no matter what, but he often relies on the "run and hide" tactic, running away from danger rather than facing it.


Peppy was a member of H.U.G.G., as seen in the Season 6 episode Hug Fest. He was the band's lead singer.

When he was King of the Pop Trolls, it was his sworn duty to protect his music, including the pink string of Pop.


It has been mentioned in Trolls: The Beat Goes On! that in his youth Peppy was highly adventurous and went on many great adventures, though only few details of these adventures are known.


When he was leader, it would have been his duty to teach young Trolls about being a Troll. Now retired, he extends his knowledge to try and help his daughter with sage old advice. However, he hasn't necessarily revealed everything he knows to her, as evidenced by his neglecting of telling her about the other Tribes until Queen Barb became a threat.


  • The word "Peppy" means "lively and high-spirited"
  • Peppy is one of the only 2 elder Trolls seen in the movies, the other being King Thrash.
    • In the Trolls: The Beat Goes On! episode Don't Worry Be Peppy, Branch mentions that Peppy is three times his age, which would put Peppy at an age of at least 60 due to how old Branch is (around 20 years).
    • Based on his estimated age given by the aforementioned episode, Poppy was born when Peppy was about 40 years old, since Poppy herself was at least 20 during the main storyline of Trolls.
  • He's one of the few characters to have had 3 voice actors in the franchise.
