Great Trolls are part of the Demon Family, and can be found in the Realm of the Mighty, during Corvus' invasion. They spawn constantly in the room with the locked jail cells, along with some other monsters.
They are included as a hunt during the vocational quest "Sages in the Pages", in which 5 of them must be killed with the Frizz spell.
One strategy for completing this quest is to have a level 30+ Martial Artist with Fire Claws use "HardClaw" 3 times, dealing about 600 damage while your main character eggs on your mage (other party members can use defend during this time). Then, your mage would use Frizz, dealing about 150 or so damage depending on the level (suggested level of at least 25) and the troll will die.
In Dragon Quest IX, the Great troll is surpassed only by the Terror Troll, which is found in high-level grottos.
