Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans is the climax of Guillermo del Toro’s enlivened Netflix childrens’ fantasy shared universe and it ends the saga in a manner that resembles the time travel used in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, particularly Captain America and Doctor Strange’s roles. Throughout the last five years, the Trollhunters franchise developed from the first Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia series to incorporate two sequel/spin-off shows, 3Below: Tales of Arcadia, and Wizards: Tales of Arcadia, before reaching its grand finale, tying every one of the shows and characters together (like Avengers: Endgame), Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans.
The Trollhunters time stone doesn’t only have the same name and seem to be similar to the MCU’s green Infinity Stone, however the manner in which Jim utilizes it also bears inconceivable similarities to both Doctor Strange in Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America in Avengers Endgame. While Jim and the Trollhunters saved the world by stopping the Titans before they could give the Earth another red hot start, it came at incredible cost. Stricklander, Nari, and Toby all sacrificed themselves to stop the Titans and Charlamagne and Archie got caught in the Dragon Trolls’ nest subsequent to freeing the Kronosphere, also the immense harm caused by the Titans, particularly to Arcadia Oaks. To allow his fallen friends the opportunity of a more joyful completion, Jim incorporates the Time Stone into the Trollhunter special necklace to return on schedule to the absolute first episode of Trollhunters, making him the only person with a memory of all that occurred all through his residency as the Trollhunter, serving as a sort of watchman of the timetable so he can assist with shaping events in another manner that avoids the catastrophic conclusion of Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans.
While some of the similarities may make Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans seem subordinate, it’s especially in the spirit of the show, which as of now embraces and homages numerous classical mythologies and current scholarly properties, particularly Guillermo del Toro’s films, with elements of Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, and a major Pacific Rim second alongside Arthurian Myth and science fiction. Avengers: Endgame didn’t create time travel, particularly as a gadget to make the world just after a catastrophe, yet given the measure of outside impact, the similarities in the portrayal could easily be a tribute to the most successful franchise ever.
