He's just not as popular as others. I'm not sure why, maybe it's aesthetics, or his skillset. My buddy plays him a ton and I'm queue'd in a game with a Trundle right now. He's by no means bad. Just... odd.

I think he just not fit into current meta i guess... Right now junglers are more like a second support buying gp5 early on and warding and getting orcales. Likely why malphite, alistar naut and nunu are popular the tanky support type junglers.

It's hard to close the gap with him and continue the damage unless you have a Frozen Mallet. Also he's very easy to kite.

He has no aoe, he's pretty bad in teamfights (just meatshield), has no gap closer and he can be kited.

It's more or less his mechanics and how they aren't conducive to the current meta.

also hes the most balanced champion ever. has never had a buff or nerf.

trundle is actually kind of like a tanky dps veigar. he feeds off the enemies tanky dps to increase his own Rabid Bite, Agony, and Decompose

He summons a tower of feces... what about that says "play with me"?
