'''Two-headed ogres''' are nearly identical to basic [[Ogre (monster)|ogres]], except for the second head. This lets them shout and grimace at you more often, but more importantly allows them to dual wield their [[giant club]]s and [[giant spiked club]]s.

“The little princess, asleep in her cradle, floated on the water, and at last she was cast up on the shore of a beautiful country, where, however, very few people dwelt since the ogre Ravagio and his wife Tourmentine had gone to live there-for they ate up everybody. Ogres are terrible people. When once they have tasted raw human flesh they will hardly eat anything else, and Tourmentine always knew how to make some body come their way, for she was half a fairy.”
-Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, Baronne d’Aulnoy, “’Orangier et l’Abeille”. 1697.
