If you are not familiar with the Trollhunters franchise, we suggest you watching the Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia, 3Below, and Wizards series before beginning to watch Trollhunters Rise of the Titans. The first three series were created by Guillermo Del Toro, while the Rise of the Titans movie has been directed by Johane Matte, Francisco Ruiz Velasco, and Andrew Schmidt.

Before beginning to explain the ending, please note that the next paragraphs contain heavy spoilers. Do not read if you have not watched the movie yet.

What Happened to Jim and Toby?

Soon after the Bellroc’s Titan dies and heroes start celebrating their victory and Steve’s pregnancy, it seems like a member of the heroes is missing. Jim realizes Toby’s absence and searches around to eventually find him breathing his last breath.

After Toby’s death, Jim, who has both Excalibur and Kronisphere, finds out that the latter is an ability to prevent a lot of bad experiences they had gone through from happening. As a result, Jim decides to bring Toby back to life and change his fate.

Jim says goodbye to all heroes and goes back in time to the day that he found the amulet. This time around, Jim allows Toby to find the amulet in the remains of Kanjigar.

The movie actually puts an end to Jim’s journey and introduces Toby as the next promising Trollhunter in the universe, but only if there would be a sequel or spin-off to the series.
