Tilt was one of the two trolls wielding flippers in the pinball random event along with Flippa. He was named after the "Tilt" action (where you lean the pinball machine) in real pinball. They would knock you back if you tried to leave before scoring 10 points.As revealed in one edition of Postbag from the hedge, he was named after the noise that the first thing he ate made, which was apparently one of three human wizards playing pinball, where one shouted "Tilt!" and the second shouted "no, Flippa!". Flippa obviously ate the second human, whilst his brother Tilt ate the first and their mother ate the third.
