Lol is a large troll and the brother of Morningstar that appears as a boss monster in the quest The Mighty Fall. During the quest, many Bandosian races vote a champion to fight in the tournament on Yu'biusk to determine who will be the new leader of the Bandosian faction, with Lol being voted as the troll champion. He defeats Mono the cyclops champion in the first round of the tournament, and then fights the player in the second round. He apparently pushed My Arm over when My Arm was a child, and thus the troll farmer bears a grudge towards him.
Lol's name was chosen in a Power to the Players poll in which the brother of Morningstar would play a role in an upcoming quest, with players being able to vote on the troll's name. Other options included Off-hand morningstar, Clarence's foot, and rubber duck.
Lol is fight-able as a class X2 boss monster in the Dominion Tower minigame if the player has completed The Mighty Fall.
Players will fight Lol as the second boss during the quest, after Yelps and before General Graardor. The special rule about the fight with the troll is that armour is not allowed, including pocket slot items, ring or necklace-slot items, or auras. Lol will primarily fight with large rocks which he will throw and are area-based, which players can avoid by moving from their location. The rocks will explode after a period of time on the ground, dealing 80% of the player's maximum health per rock. Moving a sufficient distance away will negate all damage from the explosions. As well as this, Lol takes reduced damage from ranged or magic attacks due to using protect from ranged and protect from magic, so it is suggested that players primarily use melee on him.
After the fight, players will have the option to slay or spare Lol. Unlike with Yelps, the previous contender, Lol will not offer a gift for sparing his life.

- patch 4 November 2019 (Update):
- Lol's tooltip now says chosen champion instead of acting champion on round 2 in the tournament board.
- He is the uncle of the baby troll, as he is the brother of its father, Morningstar.
- His examine text, in combination with his name, is a reference to lolcats.
