A triominoid (or trominoid) is a solid figure formed by joining three unit squares edge to edge at straight or right angles in three dimensions. There are nine triominoids, not counting reflections:

A compatibility figure is a figure that can be tiled by any of a set of two or more polyforms. Here are minimal compatibility figures for pairs of triominoids. They are not all uniquely minimal.

Kohfuh Satoh (佐藤洸風) designed a puzzle set consisting of the 11 one-sided triominoids.
