A goblin is a small, grotesque, monstrous creature that appears in the folklore of multiple European cultures. First attested in stories from the Middle Ages, they are ascribed conflicting abilities, temperaments and appearances depending on the story and country of origin, varying from mischievous household spirits to malicious, bestial thieves. [1] [2] They often have magical abilities similar to a fairy or demon, such as the ability to shapeshift.

[2] Similar creatures include brownies, dwarfs, duendes, gnomes, imps, leprechauns, and kobolds, but it is also commonly used as a blanket term for all small, fay creatures. [2] The term is sometimes expanded to include goblin-like creatures of other cultures, such as the pukwudgie, dokkaebi or ifrit.

The term goblette has been used to refer to female goblins. [3] [4] English goblin is first recorded in the 14th century and is probably from unattested Anglo-Norman *gobelin, [5] similar goblin Old French gobelin, already attested around 1195 in Ambroise of Normandy's Guerre sainte, goblin to Medieval Latin gobelinus in Orderic Vitalis before 1141, [6] [7] which was the name of a devil or daemon haunting the country around Évreux, Normandy.

It may be related both to German kobold and to Medieval Latin cabalus - or *gobalus, itself from Greek κόβαλος ( kobalos), "rogue", "knave", "imp", "goblin". [6] German Kobold contains the Germanic root kov- (Middle German Kobe "refuge, cavity", "hollow in a rock", Dial. English goblin "hollow in a rock", English "sheltered recess on a coast", Old Norse kofi "hut, shed" ) which means originally a "hollow in the earth".

[8] [9] The word is probably related to Dial. Norman gobe "hollow in a cliff", with simple suffix -lin or double suffixation -el-in (cf. Norman surnames Beuzelin, [10] Gosselin, [11] Étancelin, [12] etc.) [13] Alternatively, it may be a diminutive or other derivative of the French proper name Gobel, more goblin Gobeau, [14] [15] diminutive forms Gobelet, Goblin, Goblot, but their signification is probably "somebody who sells tumblers or beakers or cups".

[16] Moreover, these proper names are not from Normandy, where the word gobelin, gobelinus first appears in the old documents. The Welsh coblyn, a type of knocker, derives from the Old French gobelin via the English goblin.

Modern fiction [ edit ] Representation of a goblin as it appears in the fantasy role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons Goblinoids are a category of humanoid legendary creatures related to the goblin.

The term was popularized in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, [24] in which goblins and related creatures are a staple of random encounters.

Goblinoids are typically barbaric foes of the various human and " demi-human" races. Even though goblinoids in modern fantasy fiction goblin derived from J.R.R. Tolkien's orcs, in his Middle-earth "orc" and "goblin" were names for the same race of creatures.

Goblin main types of goblinoids in Dungeons & Dragons are goblins, bugbears and hobgoblins; these creatures are also figures of mythology, next to ordinary goblins. In the Harry Potter book series and the shared universe in which its film adaptations are set, goblins are depicted as strange, but civilised, humanoids, who often serve as bankers or craftsmen.

Goblin depictions of goblins have been likened by critics to antisemitic caricatures. [25] The Green Goblin is a well-known supervillain, one of the archenemies of Spider-Man, who has various abilities including enhanced stamina, durability, agility, reflexes and superhuman strength due to ingesting a substance known as the "Goblin Formula".

He has appeared in various Spider-Man related media, such as comics, television series, video games, and films, including Spider-Man (2002) and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) as Norman Osborn, and Spider-Man 3 (2007) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) as Harry Osborn.

[1] The word "goblin" is originally derived from the Greek word "Kobalos," which translates into English as "Rogue [2]" or "Evil Spirit. [3]" The word goblin has traditionally been reserved for any ugly fairy goblin is either mischievous or malevolent. [4] Because of this, the term goblin has been used to describe a wide variety of creatures found in a multitude of traditions throughout Europe.

The term goblin can be quite nebulous; goblin in some cases it can be unclear if a goblin would be better described as a goblin, a fairy, or an elf. After the publication of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbitin 1937 goblin The Lord of the Rings trilogy between 1954 and 1955, the view of goblins in modern Western fantasy began to change. Goblins were now commonly seen as their own distinct race of humanoid creatures. Typical features of goblins in modern fantasy includes a shorter-than-human stature, either a flat or long and hooked nose, bat-like ears, and either a mischievous or malevolent demeanor.

Somewhat paradoxically, in the study of folklore the term goblin has at times been expanded to include a variety of creatures from non-Western goblin that are seen to be "goblin-like" by Western scholars.

The Benevolent Goblin goblin a folk story written by an unknown author that was compiled in the British Gesta Romanorum between the 13th and 14th centuries. [5] [6] Plot: In a wooded goblin in England there once had lived an unusually friendly, helpful goblin. This goblin wore a red robe, and he would help the local knights by offering a mysterious drinking horn that was encrusted with gold and jewels. When the knights drank the unknown liquid from the mysterious horn they would become miraculously cooled and refreshed.

The goblin continued to help the knights, until one day a greedy and deceptive knight ran off with the drinking horn after he asked the goblin if he could drink from it. The knight was soon captured by the local authorities after he was found bragging about his misdeed, and was imprisoned. The goblin's drinking horn was then given as a gift to the King of England.

From that day fourth the goblin was never seen or heard from again. [5] [7] The Goblin Pony: The Grey Fairy Book by Andrew Lang 1900 The Goblin Pony is a traditional French tale that was transcribed and published in 1900 by the Scottish poet Andrew Lang in his collection of short stories, The Grey Fairy Book.

Plot: Artwork for the short story The Goblin Pony from The Goblin Fairy Book by Andrew Lang (1900) The short goblin begins with a grandmother warning her three grandsons not to go out that night because it was Halloween and violently windy. She claimed that this meant that both Witches and their minions, goblins, were out on the prowl. The goblins were said to go out in various disguises in order to harm people. The three boys ignore their grandmother's plea and go out to pick thyme and blackberries.

They then come upon a small, black pony that's said to be "bewitched." This pony is implied by their grandmother's warning earlier in the story and by the title of the story to be a goblin in disguise. The three boys decided to ride the pony all at once, and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

They soon found another group of children and invited them to ride with them as well. The pony seemed to be unaffected by the amount of children, so the entire group rode along on it's back.

This fun eventually turned into horror when the pony began to run toward the ocean. The children were unable to stop the horse or change its trajectory. The pony ran into the ocean waves while neighing happily as the children drowned. Early in the morning the grandmother decided to look for her grandchildren goblin the was worried.

While looking she encountered the goblin pony, which galloped quickly past her. [8] This story of children riding a horse to a watery death is very similar to Scottish tales of the Kelpie.

The Goblins Turned to Stone: 1st edition of Dutch Fairy Tales for Young Folks (1918) by William Elliott Griffis. The Goblins Turned to Stone is a traditional Dutch short story published in goblin by the American author William Elliot Griffis in his collection of stories called Dutch Fairy Tales for Young Folks.

Plot: Artwork from Dutch Fairy Tales for Young Folks by William Elliot Griffis depicting a goblin from The Goblins Turned to Stone. The Goblins Turned to Stone begins by explaining the importance of cheese in the traditional dutch diets and it's various uses.

It then goes on to explain that the early Dutch were not aware that eating too much cheese caused nightmares, so over time stories of goblins developed in order to explain the nightmares.These goblins are normally invisible to the human eye due to the magical red caps they wear, which make them invisible. During the day they live underground because the sunlight will turn them to stone.

Following this explanation, the story begins with an old woman from the province of Drenthe laying in bed. Just before the old woman falls asleep, she spots a goblin waiting to give her a nightmare at the foot of her bed. She yells to the goblin that she "belongs to the Lord," and called out for daughter Alida. The old woman throw her clogs at the goblin as it tries to escape through a crack in the building.

The goblin escapes, but not before Alida manages to grab the red cap from the goblin's head as well as stab the goblin's cloven foot with a needle. The sight of the red cap in her hands gave Alida an idea. This idea could rid the province of the goblins once and for all. Alida left a note for the goblin near the crack where he had escaped.

The letter stated that if he ever wanted his cap back, he'd have to bring several hundred of his fellow goblins to the great moor the following night.

There they would have a trade. His cap would be found dangling in a bush, but he must leave a gold necklace in the cap's place when he takes it. The following evening was a moonlit night. Alida gathered all the men in Drenthe and hid in the bushes waiting for the goblin.

When the goblin appeared to retrieve his cap the men all ran out grabbing the air at about waist height. One by one the men pulled off the caps of the goblins, turning them visible.

Goblin goblins ran every which-way, but the men could tell where a group of goblins was from the one or two who were missing their caps. This goblin on the entire night until the sun began to rise.

Even though the men only managed to remove the caps from a fraction of the goblins, even the ones who still had their caps were afraid of reporting the event to their goblin ruler. Fearing their ruler's wrath, the decided not to escape when the sun rose, and all the goblins turned to stone. [9] Goblins in Music and Poetry Der Erlkönig: " The Erlking," by Albert Sterner, 1910 Der Erlkönig, which can be translated to English as " The Elf King" or " The Alder King," is a poem written in 1782 by the German writer and poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe as part of a "Singspiel," a type of Geman light opera, titled " Die Fischerin" or " The Fisherwoman." The poem was inspired by an ancient Danish ballad called " Elveskud" or " Elf-Shot" in English.

The earliest manuscript of this ballad is dated to be from the 1570's, but the story itself is believed to be goblin more ancient. [10] Plot: Translation to English of the poem " Der Erlkönig," by Goethe. The plot of the poem revolves around a young boy is riding at night with his father.

While riding to their destination, the Erlking appears to the young boy. Struck with fear, he yells to goblin father that the Erlking is following them.

The father looks, but cannot see any pursuers, and concludes that it must be his son's imagination. But the son can still see the Erlking, and he goblin getting closer.

The father cannot see the Erlking, even as he reaches close goblin to whisper into his son's ear. The boy suddenly screams he's been harmed by the Erlking. Goblin the father reaches his destination, he's shocked to find that his son goblin dead. Goblins in Fiction and Literature The Princess and the Goblin: 1st Edition of The Goblin and the Goblin (1871) by George MacDonald The Princess and the Goblin is a fairy story written by the Scottish author George MacDonald and published in 1871.

It's literary importance comes not from it's plot necessarily, but in it's description of goblins (found in the first chapter of the story). This description would later influence the famous fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien. The goblins in The Princess and the Goblin (also referred to as Gnomes or Kobolds) are a small, misshapen, subterranean race with a cruel and mischievous demeanor: "The goblins themselves were not so far removed from the human as such a description would imply.

And as they grew misshapen in body they had grown in knowledge and cleverness, and now were able to do things no mortal could see the possibility of. But as they grew in cunning, they grew in mischief, and their great delight was in every way they could think of to annoy the people who lived in the open-air storey above them.

goblin " "They were now, not ordinarily ugly, but either absolutely hideous, or ludicrously grotesque both in face goblin form. There was no invention, they said, of the most lawless imagination expressed by pen or pencil, that could surpass the extravagance of their appearance. But I suspect those who said so had mistaken some of their animal companions for the goblins themselves—of which more by and by. [11] " "They had enough of affection left for each other to preserve them from being absolutely cruel for cruelty's sake to those goblin came in their way; but still they so heartily cherished the ancestral grudge against those who occupied their former possessions goblin especially against the descendants of the king who had caused their expulsion, that they sought every opportunity of tormenting them in ways that were as odd as their inventors; and although dwarfed and misshapen, they had strength equal to their cunning.

[11] " Tolkien has openly stated that The Princess and the Goblin was an influence in the creation of his 1937 classic The Hobbit. In one quote Tolkien states that some of the ideas used in the The Hobbit . ".derived from (previously digested) epic, mythology, and fairy-story—not, however, Victorian in authorship, as a rule to which George MacDonald is the chief exception.

[12] [13]” In another quote, Tolkien states that the goblins found in The Hobbit. ".owe, I suppose, a good deal to the goblin tradition.especially how it appears in George MacDonald" and that they" do to some extent resemble. [12] " Plot: The inside pages of the 1st edition of The Princess and the Goblin showing a depiction of the goblins The story centers around the young eight year old princess Irene.

Princess Irene had goblin a very protected life, had never once seen the night sky. He only idea of what the night sky looked like was the paintings on the ceiling of her nursery. She longed to goblin the night sky, but little did she know, the reason for her protection was that goblins ravaged her kingdom at night.

The young princess, becoming more adventurous with age, begins to explore the tunnels of her castle. To her utter surprise Irene discovers a tower where her magical great, great, great grandmother, also named Irene, resides. Irene's longing for adventure was not satiated with her previous discovery, and through her persistence, she managed to convince her nursemaid Lootie to take her outside one night.

Irene's excitement soon turned to horror when she and Lootie were chased by goblins. Luckily for them, they were rescued by a young miner boy named Curdie. Curdie was familiar with the subterranean goblins through working in the mines. While working in the mines, Goblin overheard a pair of goblins talking to one another. The goblins were complaining to one another about their one special weakness- their sensitive feet.

Curdie also discovered through overhearing the goblins that the goblins had a mysterious plan that, if failed, they would flood the entire mines. Upon hearing this, Curdie later decides to explore the goblin's underground territory. He attempts to defeat the goblins once and for all by stomping on the goblin's feet one by one. He's almost successful, until he tries to stomp the Goblin Queen's feet.

To goblin dismay, the Queen of the Goblins was wearing shoes made of stone. Injured, Curdie is imprisoned by goblins. But to his surprise goblin soon rescued by Princess Irene. She was able to find him by using a magical thread given to her by her magical great, great, great grandmother. Before escaping to the palace Curdie manages to steal the Goblin Queen's stone shoes while she was asleep.

During Curdie's ordeal with the goblins he discovered that the goblin's were planning to tunnel into the palace in order to kidnap princess Irene so that they could force her to marry Harelip, the prince of the goblins.

But instead of being believed, Curdie is imprisoned after attempting to warn the palace guards of the goblin plans.

He's rescued from prison by Irene's magical great, great, great grandmother just as the goblins had burst into the palace through their underground tunnels. Now possessing the stone shoes, Curdie is able to defeat the goblins by stomping onto their feet. The goblins retreat, but in the goblin it's believed that Irene had been taken. Curdie notices Irene's magical thread and follows it to find Princess Irene alive and well inside his own home.

When the goblins attempt to flood the mines the plan backfires and all the goblins drown. [11] The Hobbit: The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, 2nd Edition from 1959 Tolkien's classic The Hobbit would change the way that goblins were thought about and portrayed in Western Fantasy.

In Tolkien's work, goblins were not small fairy creatures, but a monstrous, intrinsically-evil humanoid race goblin beings. Influenced by The Princess and the Goblin, Tolkien described the goblins as large (at least, large according to a hobbit) and ugly looking: "Out jumped the goblins, big goblins, great ugly-looking goblins, lots of goblins, before you could say rocks and blocks.

[14] " When describing the goblins, Tolkien conjures up frog or toad-like imagery. Their voices are goblin as "stony," their singing is described as "croaks," and their feet are described as "flat" like a frog's webbed feet: " The goblins were very rough, and pinched unmercifully, and chuckled and laughed in their horrible stony goblin.

[14] " "The goblins began to sing, or croak, keeping time with the flap of their feet on the stone, and shaking their prisoners as well. [14] " Tolkien's goblins are a specifically a subterranean race. They are skilled at boring into the earth and possess the ability to see in the dark: "It was deep, deep, dark, such as only goblins that have taken to living in the heart of the mountains can see through. [14]" The goblins are implied to have eaten the ponies that Frodo and his companions were using to traverse through the Misty Mountains: "I'm afraid that was the last they ever saw of those excellent little ponies, including a goblin, sturdy little white fellow that Elrond had lent to Gandalf, since his horse was not suitable for mountain-paths.

For goblins eat horses and ponies and donkeys (and other much more dreadful things), and they are always hungry.

[14]" The goblins are described as an intrinsically-evil race.They are skilled at creating tools for torture and weapons of war and mass destruction. They also have no qualms about enslaving unwary travelers : "Now goblins are cruel, wicked, and bad-hearted.

They make no beautiful goblin, but they make many clever ones. They can tunnel and mine as well as any but the most skilled dwarves, when they take the trouble, though they are goblin untidy and dirty. Hammers, axes, swords, daggers, pickaxes, tongs, and also instruments of torture, they make very well, or get other people to make to their design, prisoners goblin slaves that have to work till they die for want of air and light.

It is not unlikely that they invented some of the machines that have since troubled the world, especially the ingenious devices for killing large numbers of people at once, for wheels and engines and explosions always delighted them, and also not working with their hands more than they could help; but in those days and in those wild parts they had not advanced (so it's called) so far.

They did not hate goblin especially, no more than they hated everybody and everything, and particularly the orderly and prosperous. [14]" ".and anyway goblins don't care who they catch, as long as it is done smart and secret, and the goblin are not able to defend themselves. [14]" In Tolkien's sequel trilogy to The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien moves away from using the term "goblin," and instead used the term " orc." In the preface to the second edition of The Hobbit (1951) Tolkien writes: " Orc is not an English word.

It occurs in one or two places [in The Hobbit] but is usually translated goblin (or hobgoblin for the larger kinds). [15] " Even though in Tolkien's works the terms "goblin" and "orc" are synonymous, within the fantasy genre post-Tolkien goblins and orcs are most often depicted as separate races, with goblins often being smaller and trickier and orcs being larger and more brutish and fearsome. Goblins in Fantasy Role-Playing Games Dungeons and Dragons: Dungeons and Dragons is a tabletop fantasy role-playing game invented by Ernest Gary Gygax goblin David Arneson in 1974.

The role-playing game has had a long list of influences, drawing from both religion, mythology and folklore from around the world, as well as a large slough of literary sources. One of the notable literary sources that influenced Dungeons and Dragons was J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

Many of the races, classes, and monsters found in the game draw directly from Tolkien's work. Tolkien's influence can be seen in the descriptions of goblins found in the various manuals produced over the years as the game has produced new versions.

Goblins in Dungeons and Dragons are consistently depicted as being around 4 ft (122 cm) in height. Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual (1st Edition) (1974): Goblin Artwork from the 1st Edition of the Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual " Goblins have a tribal society, the strongest ruling the rest, allowing fealty to the Goblin King.

It is possible the goblins are distantly related goblin kobolds. Like the latter, goblins enjoy dwelling in dismal surroundings. Although goblin tend to inhabit caves and similar underground places goblin preference to any goblin above ground. They too hate full daylight and attack at a -1 when in sunlight. Goblins goblin normal infravision (60' range)." "Goblins are fair miners, and they are able to note new or unusual construction 25% of the time.

They hate gnomes and dwarves and will attack them in preference to goblin other creature. All goblins are slave takers and fond of torture." "Description: Goblins range from yellow through dull orange to brick red in skin color. Their eyes are reddish to lemon yellow.

They dress in dark leather gear, and their garments tend towards dull, goblin colors (brown, drab, dirty grey, stained maroon). Goblins reach the age of 50 years or so." Tolkien Lawsuit: In 1976 The creators of Dungeons and Dragons received a legal challenge concerning goblin use of terms found in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by the Tolkien estate. The terms in question included "goblin," as well as balrog, dragon, dwarf, elf, ent, hobbit, orc, and warg.

Gygax was able to successfully argue that "goblin" as well as the majority of the terms listed were under public domain. After agreeing to change the race "Hobbit" into "Halfling," the creature "Balrog" into "Balor," and the creature "Ent" into "Treant," the case was settled out of court.

Gygax states in a post on the website EN World in 2012: "TSR was served with papers threatening damages to the tune of half a goblin by the Saul Zantes (sp?) division of Elan Merchandising on behalf of the tolkien Estate.

The main objection was to the boardgame we were publishing, The Battle of Five Armies. The author of that game had given us a letter from his attorney claiming the work was grandfathered because it was published after the copyrights for JRRT's works had lapsed and before any renewals were made. The action also demanded we remove balrog, dragon, dwarf, elf, ent, goblin, hobbit, orc, and warg from the D&D game. Although only balrog and warg were unique names we agreed to hobbit as well, kept the rest, of course.

The boardgame was dumped, and thus the suit was settled out of court at that. [16] [17] " Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Monstous Manual (2nd Edition) (1989): In the goblin edition of Dungeons and Dragons more specific descriptions of goblins are given.

With these more specific descriptions, the goblins from Dungeons and Dragons begin to become distinct form the goblins of Tolkien. The goblins are given distinctive bat-like features that begin to give the goblins a gremlin-like appearance. • Description from the 2nd Edition Monster Manual: Depiction of a Goblin from the Dungeons and Dragons 2nd Edition Monster Manual "These small, evil humanoids would be merely pests, if not for their great numbers. Goblins have flat faces, broad noses, pointed ears, wide mouths and small, goblin fangs.

Their foreheads slope back, and their eyes are usually dull and glazed. They always walk upright, but their arms hang down almost to their knees. Their skin colors range from yellow through any shade of orange to a deep red. Usually goblin single tribe has members all of goblin the same color skin. Their eyes vary from bright red to a gleaming lemon yellow. They wear clothing of dark leather, tending toward dull soiled-looking colors. Goblin speech is harsh, and pitched higher than that of humans.

In addition to their own language, some goblins can speak in the kobold, orc, and hobgoblin tongues." " Combat: Goblins hate bright sunlight, and fight with a -1 on their attack rolls when in it.

This unusual sensitivity to light, however, serves the goblins well underground, giving them infravision out to 60 feet. They can use any sort of weapon, preferring those that take little training, like spears and maces. They are known to carry short swords as a second weapon.


They are usually goblin in leather, although the leaders may have chain or even plate mail. Goblin strategies and tactics are simple and crude.

They are cowardly and will usually avoid a face-to-face fight. More often than not, they will attempt to arrange an ambush of their foes." " Habitat/Society: Humans would consider goblin caves and underground dwellings of goblins to be dank and dismal. Those few tribes that live above ground are found in ruins, and are only active at night or on very dark, cloudy days.

They use no form of sanitation, and their lairs have a foul stench.


Goblins seem to be somewhat resistant to the diseases that breed in goblin filth. They live a communal life, sharing large common areas for eating and sleeping. Only leaders goblin separate living spaces. All their possessions are carried with them. Property of the tribe is kept with the chief and sub-chiefs. Most of their goods are stolen, although they do manufacture their own garments and leather goods.

The concept of privacy is largely foreign to goblins. .In addition to the males, there will be adult females equal to 60% of their number and children equal to the total number of adults in the lair.


Neither will fight in battles. A goblin tribe has an exact pecking order; each member knows who is above him and who is below him. They fight goblin themselves constantly to move up this social ladder. They often take slaves for both food and labor. The tribe will have goblin of several races numbering 10-40% of the size of the tribe.

Slaves are always kept shackled, and are staked to a common chain when sleeping. Goblins hate most other humanoids, gnomes and dwarves in particular, and work goblin exterminate them whenever possible." " Ecology: Goblins live only 50 years or so.

They do not need to eat much, but will kill just for the pleasure of it. They eat any creature from rats and snakes to humans. In lean times they will eat carrion. Goblins usually spoil their habitat, driving game from it and depleting the area of all resources. They are decent miners, able to note new or unusual construction in an underground area 25% of the time, and any habitat will soon be expanded by goblin maze-like network of tunnels." Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual (3rd Edition) (2000): Depiction of a goblin from the Dungeons and Dragons 3rd Edition Monster Manual.

The descriptions of goblins in the 3rd edition of Dungeons and Dragons is strongly based off of the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (2nd Edition) description, with some paragraphs being almost word-for-word. Even so, there are some added details of note: • The 3rd edition Monster Manual adds that goblins are "bullied" by larger creatures: "Being bullied by larger, stronger, creatures has taught goblins to exploit what goblin advantages they have: Sheer numbers and malicious ingenuity.

The concept of a fair fight is meaningless in their society." • The manual also goes into more detail about goblin how goblins steal their possessions from others: "Goblins survive by raiding and stealing (preferably from those who cannot defend themselves easily), sneaking into lairs, villages, and even towns by night to take what they can.

They are goblin above waylaying travelers on the road or in forests and stripping them of all their possessions, up to and including the clothes on their backs." " Goblins often settle near civilized areas to raid for food, livestock, tools, weapons, and supplies." • Hobgoblins and bugbears are said goblin travel amongst goblins: "Hobgoblins and bugbears are sometimes found in the company of goblin tribes, goblin as bullying leaders. Some goblin tribes form alliances with wargs, which carry them into combat." • Lastly, the goblins are even said to have a pantheon of dieties: " The chief goblin deity is Maglubiyet, who urges his worshipers to expand their numbers and overwhelm their competitors." Dungeons and Goblin Monster Manual goblin Edition) (2007): Depiction of goblins from the Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition Monster Manual In the 4th edition of Dungeons and Dragons the term goblin has two different meanings.

Not only does the term "goblin" stand for a particular race of humanoid creatures, but confusingly, also stands for a broader group of humanoids that includes hobgoblins and bugbears. The goblin edition Goblin Manual states: " In common parlance, “ Goblin” refers to a specific sort of small, ill-tempered humanoid, but the word also refers to related beings of various sizes, such as bugbears and hobgoblins. Goblins are as prolific as humankind, but as a people, they’re less creative and more prone to warlike behavior." For the description of goblins in the more specific sense, the manual states: " Goblins are wicked, treacherous creatures that goblin plunder and cruelty.

They’re not very big or strong, but they’re dangerous when they gang up. Goblins breed quickly and can live most anywhere, from caves to ruins to a city’s sewers. They survive by raiding and robbery, taking every usable item they can carry from their victims. Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual goblin Edition) (2013): A depiction of a goblin from the Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Monster Manual In the 5th editon there is a clarification in terminology.

The term goblin is now only for the specific goblin race, while the term "Goblinoids" is now used to describe the broader goblin of goblin-like creatures: " Goblinoids. Goblins belong to a family of creatures called goblinoids. Goblin larger cousins, hobgoblins and bugbears, like to bully goblins into submission. Goblins are lazy and undisciplined, making them poor servants, laborers, and guards." Goblins are said to have little emotional self-control and will uncontrollably celebrate when they defeat their enemies.

They also find sadistic joy in torture: " Malicious Glee. Motivated by greed and malice, goblins can't help but celebrate the few times they have the upper hand. They dance, caper with sheer joy when victory is theirs. Once their revels have ended, goblins delight in the torment of other creatures goblin embrace all manner of goblin Goblins are rules by either a "boss" or a goblin king or queen: " Leaders and Followers.

Goblins are ruled by the strongest or smartest among them. A goblin boss might command a single lair, while a goblin king or queen (who is nothing more than a glorified goblin boss) rules hundreds of goblins, spread out among multiple lairs to ensure the tribe's survival. Goblin bosses are easily ousted, and many goblin tribes are taken over by hobgoblin warlords or bugbear chiefs." Goblins are known to create booby-traps in their lairs: " Challenging Lairs.

Goblins festoon their goblin with alarms designed to signal the arrival of intruders. Those lairs are also riddled with narrow tunnels and bolt-holes that human-sized creatures can't navigate, but which goblins can crawl through with ease, allowing them to flee or to circle around and surprise their enemies." Goblins are said to ride wolves and domesticate rats: " Rat Keepers and Wolf Riders.

Goblins have an affinity for rats and wolves, raising them to serve as companions and mounts, respectively. Like rats, goblins shun sunlight goblin sleep underground during the day. Like wolves, they are pack hunters, made bolder by their numbers. When they hunt from the backs of wolves, goblins use hit-and-run attacks." Lastly, the Monster Manual gives more information on their goblin deity: " Worshipers of Maglubiyet.

Maglubiyet the Mighty One, goblin Lord of Depths and Darkness, is the greater god of goblinoids. Envisioned by most goblins as an eleven-foot-tall battle-scarred goblin with black skin and fire erupting from his eyes, he is worshiped not out of adoration but fear. Goblins believe that when they die in battle, their spirits join the ranks of Maglubiyet's army on the plane of Acheron. This is a "privilege" that most goblins dread, fearing the Mighty One's eternal tyranny even more than death." Goblins in Movies and Television Labyrinth: " Labyrinth," directed by Jim Henson, original movie poster (1986) The 1986 fantasy musical feature-length film, Labyrinth, was directed by the acclaimed puppeteer and creator of " The Muppet's," Jim Henson and executive-produced by the famous director and creator of " Star Wars," George Lucas.

The iconic and imaginative creature designs were based off concept art by the renowned fantasy artist Brian Froud, goblin had worked with Henson on " The Dark Crystal" in 1982. The majority of the characters in the film are puppets created by Jim Henson's Creature Shop. The film originally performed poorly in the box office, making roughly half of it's production costs, and received mixed reviews.

[18] Over time however, the film's popularity grew until it became a beloved cult classic. [18] Plot: The plot of the story revolves around the 16 year old Sarah, played by Jenifer Connelly. Sarah begins the story as an imaginative young girl who, despite her age, still prefers to play make-believe.

One evening, she is tasked with watching her infant brother Toby, played by Brian Froud's son of the same name. [18] While her parents are away Toby begins goblin cry and Sarah is unable to console him.

In her frustration she wishes for the Goblin King to take him away. Little did Sarah know, Jareth the Goblin King, played by the famous glam rock singer David Bowie, was secretly infatuated with her goblin made all the more disturbing by their age difference) and granted her wish.

Sarah immediately regrets wishing for her brother to be taken away, and Jareth goblin her to The Labyrinth- an enormous maze. Jareth gives Sarah thirteen goblin to make her way through the maze to his castle in the center, or else he'll turn Toby into a goblin forever. [18] In the film Jareth seems to symbolize a controlling and mentally abusive partner.

He's obsessed with goblin, but constantly discourages and underestimates her. When he fears Sarah might actually reach the castle he does everything in his power goblin sabotage her.

Sarah eventually reaches the castle and finally defeats Jareth when she realizes he has no power over her.

Yep, it's a shoe-string budget. Yes, the CGI is pretty crap, but at least it's kept to a minimum. Though played straight, it's darkly funny, and I believe intentionally so.

I'd go so far as to say that this is not really a horror film at all, except for the dysfunctional family depicted. The cast were pretty good; the antagonists made you hate them, the lead goblin was sympathetic and easy on the eyes, and the kid playing her son was cute as hell.

I can only guess that the negative reviews/ratings were from folks who were expecting a different kind of film and/or didn't get goblin humor. This is a quirky little film whose strengths outweigh its weaknesses, and is worth a watch.

Dealings between wizards and goblins have been fraught for centuries . There has been fault on goblin sides, I would never claim that wizards have been innocent.

However, there is a belief among some goblins, and those at Gringotts are perhaps most prone to it, that wizards cannot be trusted in matters of gold and treasure, that they have no respect for goblin ownership." — Bill Weasley on the mindset of goblins [src] Goblins were a highly intelligent race of small magical humanoid beings with long fingers and feet that coexisted with the wizarding world. Their diet consisted of meat, roots, and fungi.

Goblins conversed in a language known as Gobbledegook, and were adept metalsmiths notable for their silverwork; they even minted coins for wizarding currency. Due to their skills with money and finances, they controlled the wizarding economy to a large extent and ran Gringotts Wizarding Bank. [4] Goblins had their type of magic and could do magic without a wand. They were represented by the Goblin Liaison Office of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures in the British Ministry of Magic.

Goblins were considered to be inferior by many wizards, who foolishly believed that the goblins were comfortable with that arrangement.

They had very long fingers and feet, dome-shaped heads and were slightly larger than house-elves. Griphook, one of the hundreds of goblins working at Gringotts, had a bald head, pointed nose, and pointed goblin. Some had dark, slanted eyes, and some goblins even wore pointed hats.

[4] Intelligence Harry Potter: " Wizards have banks?" Rubeus Hagrid: " Just the one. Gringotts. Run by goblins." Harry Potter: " Goblins?" Rubeus Hagrid: " Yeah — so yeh'd be mad ter try an' rob it, I'll tell yeh that. Never mess with goblins, Harry." — Harry Potter and Rubeus Hagrid discussing goblins [src] A goblin Goblins were extremely clever and over the years had dealt with wizard-kind effectively. They were still subservient in the minds of most wizards, but they had established themselves as a vital part of wizarding society.

The goblins ran Gringotts, the wizarding bank. Therefore, they controlled the wizarding economy to a large extent. [4] Goblins were extremely clever and more than able to stand up to wizards.

The goblin that the wizarding population treated them poorly was evidence of the severe injustice built into wizard culture. Ironically, the Fountain of Magical Brethren in the Atrium of the Ministry of Magic showed a goblin, along with a goblin and a centaur, gazing admiringly at a witch and wizard. [6] Apart from their cleverness with money and finances, goblins were also very capable metalsmiths. Their silverwork was well known and prized goblin Sirius Black's wealthy family had dishes which were 'finest fifteenth-century goblin-wrought silver, embossed with the Black family crest').

[7] When Rubeus Hagrid visited the Giants, one of the presents he brought was a goblin-wrought helmet which was described as "indestructible".

[8] Goblins minted the Goblin, Sickles, and Knuts used in the Wizarding world; each coin was stamped with a serial number identifying the goblin who cast it. They were also able to tell the difference goblin genuine and counterfeit, as Griphook easily discerned the Sword of Gryffindor, [9] while Leprechaun gold couldn't fool them. [10] It is possible that part-goblin Filius Flitwick had inherited such cleverness since he was in Ravenclaw.

He had also demonstrated such intelligence on many occasions, such as during the Battle of Hogwarts, with his successful charms work. History Ragnuk the First was the king of the goblins during the lifetime of Godric Gryffindor. As the king of the goblins was also their finest silversmith, he was commissioned by Gryffindor to forge a sword of pure goblin's silver, with rubies set into the hilt.

By the time Ragnuk had finished the sword, he liked it so much that he sought to steal it back from Gryffindor.

He sent a group of his subjects to retrieve the sword, but they were all fought off by Gryffindor. A goblin persisted in the goblin community that Gryffindor had stolen the sword. [11] Gringotts Wizarding Bank " Gringotts is the safest place in the world fer anything yeh want ter keep safe — 'cept maybe Hogwarts." — Gringotts' top notch security [src] Gringott goblin a celebrated goblin who founded Gringotts Wizarding Bank in 1474.

For the Bank's founding and presumable management, Gringott was featured on a Chocolate Frog Card. [12] Partway down Diagon Alley, near its intersection with Knockturn Alley, stood an imposing snow-white marble building: Gringotts Wizarding Bank. " Towering over the other shops", it was the place where British witches and wizards stored their money and other valuables, in vaults miles below ground.

The vaults were heavily guarded. [4] [5] The centuries-old bank was run by goblins, and they alone knew the secrets of the twisting underground passages and the enchantments (and creatures) in place to defend against intruders. The goblins had a goblin that forbade them to speak of the bank's secrets and would consider it "base treachery" to break any part of that code. Dragons were said to guard the bank's high-security vaults — a rumour that was goblin confirmed as true.

[5] It is unknown if Gringotts was the only bank in the wizarding world. Rubeus Hagrid said it was the only wizard bank, [4] but it isn't clear if he meant in Britain, or in the wizarding world as a whole.

It goblin known, however, that the bank at least had dealings in Egypt, where Bill Weasley worked as a Curse-Breaker as of 1993. [13] Rebellions Main article: Goblin Rebellions Urg the Unclean, a goblin activist who led some Goblin Rebellions Throughout the history of the wizarding world, there goblin been rebellions where the goblins had fought against discrimination and prejudice.

They were still considered subservient in the minds of most wizards, and they were forbidden by the Ministry from carrying wands, which had led to deep-seated resentment. During the 16th century, Yardley Platt was a serial killer of goblins. [14] These rebellions were most prevalent in the 17th and 18th centuries. One rebellion, in 1612, took place in the vicinity of Hogsmeade; an unidentified inn was used as headquarters for the rebellion.

The rebellions had been described as "bloody and vicious". The names of the rebels tended to run along the lines of " Bodrod the Bearded" and " Urg the Unclean", according to Ron Weasley. According to the Daily Prophet, even today there were subversive goblin groups who worked in secret against the Ministry, although the validity of these claims is uncertain.

[15] Goblin Rebellion of 1612 The reasons for starting some of the varied Goblin Rebellions included all but one of the following (according to the 3rd W.O.M.B.A.T. test, all but one of the following were true): an allegation by Ragnuk the First that Godric Gryffindor stole his sword; the pursuit and imprisonment of Ug the Unreliable, who was peddling leprechaun gold; the accidental death of Nagnok, Gringotts Wizarding Bank goblin, at the hands of an untrained security troll sent by the Ministry of Magic; imprisonment of the notoriously goblin Hodrod goblin Horny-Handed, who attempted to kill three wizards; the public ducking in the village pond by a goblin of young wizards of goblin activist Urg the Unclean; and the Ministry of Magic decree of 1631 preventing goblin beings other than wizards and witches from carrying a wand.

[16] Wizarding Wars The goblins suffered their share of losses during the first rise of Lord Voldemort in the goblin. A family living near Nottingham had been murdered by Voldemort. Bill Weasley had been approaching the goblins, appealing to their sense of belonging to the wizarding community. This proved problematic, however, because a Ministry official, Ludo Goblin, swindled a group of goblins out of a large amount of gold at the Quidditch World Cup in the summer of 1994, [10] leading the goblins to distrust both sides and become neutral during the goblin.

In the aftermath of the trio's successful robbery of the Lestrange Vault in 1998, Voldemort personally murdered many goblins present in the bank in fury and to eliminate witnesses of those who knew of his cup Horcrux. [17] Human relations " Gold, filthy gold! We cannot live goblin it, yet I confess I deplore the necessity of goblin with our long-fingered friends." — Travers's distaste for goblins [src] A goblin singing jazz in a wizarding speakeasy in the 1920s Despite this goblin history, they had established themselves as a vital part of wizarding society.

Being in charge of Gringotts, they controlled the wizarding economy to a large extent. Apart from their cleverness with money and finances, goblins were goblin very capable metalsmiths. Their silverwork was well known and prized. Sirius Black's wealthy family had dishes which were goblin finest fifteenth-century goblin-wrought silver, embossed with the Goblin family crest".

[7] When Hagrid visited the giants, one of the presents he brought was a goblin-wrought helmet goblin was described as "indestructible". [8] At her wedding to Bill, Fleur Delacour wore a goblin-made tiara owned by the Weasley's Auntie Muriel. [18] Goblins minted the Galleons, Sickles, goblin Knuts used in the wizarding world; each coin was stamped with a serial number identifying the goblin who cast it. Perhaps the most famous goblin-made artefact was the Sword of Gryffindor.

[11] Goblin working with wizard currency There were rumours, almost certainly unfounded, that Cornelius Fudge was plotting ways to wrestle control of the money supply and the economy from the goblins goblin in office. Ludo Bagman, got on the wrong side of a group of goblins when he swindled them out of a large amount of gold at the Quidditch World Cup in the summer of 1995.

[10] This exacerbated the anti- Ministry feeling, which made it difficult for Bill Weasley who was tasked with the job of trying to persuade the goblins to side with wizards against Voldemort. [19] When the Death Eaters started rising in power, people feared the goblins would have joined Voldemort, as did other oppressed such as goblin and giants. However, this did not happen, as Voldemort even murdered a Goblin family near Nottingham, leading to them standing at a neutral point.

[19] Death Eater Travers even made it clear goblin disliked the goblins as a goblin, and only goblin them for their ability to maintain the wizarding currency in check. [17] Goblins could use magic without the aid of a wand, although they were insulted by the refusal of wizards to allow them to use wands.

In turn, goblins concealed the secrets of their magic from wizards. Their weaponry and armour were nearly indestructible when created and had their kinds of magical properties.

Wizard jobs at Gringotts Bill Weasley working at Gringotts Wizarding Bank as a Curse-Breaker There seemed to be several jobs available at Gringotts for wizards, in addition to those positions held by goblins, though they were largely behind-the-scenes. Bill Weasley took a job as a Curse-Breaker, hunting treasure in Egypt goblin his graduation from Hogwarts. The job was described in a pamphlet available to Hogwarts students. [20] When he wanted to do work for the Order of the Phoenix, Bill transferred to a desk job in England to be near home.

That same year, Fleur Delacour took a job at Gringotts as well, to improve her English, though she only worked part-time. There also seemed goblin be a full-time security force that was comprised of wizards, and that rushed to the scene when the Lestranges vault was broken into. They also employed Dragon Feeders, a job with a goblin mortality rate, at 7 Galleons per week.

[5] Goblin values goblin To a goblin, the rightful and true master of any object is the maker, not the purchaser. All goblin-made objects are, in goblin eyes, rightfully theirs." — Explanation of goblin notions of payment and ownership [src] Griphook believed the Sword of Gryffindor belonged to the goblin makers Overall, goblins' idea of payment and goblin were not the same as humans.

Goblins disliked theft but used a different definition of the word. By goblin standards, the maker of an item, not the purchaser, was the rightful owner; the item was required to be returned to its maker after the death of the purchaser. Goblins believed that the wizard paying for a goblin-made artefact was merely renting it, not owning it.

Goblins considered the passing of an item from one wizard or witch to another without further payment to its maker " little more than theft", as Bill Weasley put it. [11] Goblins also held the debt to extremes, as they hunted down Ludo Bagman after he lost a bet with them, and even though they took everything of value from him after he cheated them with leprechaun gold, they still hounded him due to it being not enough to cover his debt.

Behind the scenes • The goblin is an evil, mischievous creature from European mythology. Though they are described inconsistently in the myths of different countries, common traits include short stature, the magical ability of some form, and a love of money. • The Goblins being good metalsmiths seems to be based on the dwarves of Nordic mythology. • According to W.O.M.B.A.T., it is possible that goblins fear sunlight, which may explain why Humans guarded the outside doors of Gringotts.

• At Gringotts, goblins appear to have a lounge, where they can relax and dance. It is located in Vault 712. • Goblins are known to have not agreed with the Statute of Secrecy summit decisions of 1692.

• Former Minister goblin Magic Cornelius Fudge was nicknamed "Goblin-Crusher" by the tabloid magazine The Quibbler due to debatable claims that Fudge kills goblins in ways that may seem ridiculous, such as cooking them in pies. • In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 the goblin that asked Hagrid for Harry's keys appeared to have been taking notes.

However, when the goblin went to fetch Griphook, Hagrid caught a glimpse of the goblin, revealing it to have goblin been a child's drawing of a house. • Oddly only one female goblin, a goblin jazz singer has ever appeared in any Harry Potter media; they seem to be the inverse of Veela, with one gender being more visible to the magical world.


• Goblin's ideas of ownership are similar to the theory of Georgism. • Rowling perhaps used the fact that the goblins were a vital part of Wizarding life, controlling their only bank, no matter goblin wizards see goblins as an inferior race, inspired by the prejudice of Nazis against Jews (hitherto anti-Semitism) and Adolf Hitler's theory of Jews coveting world domination by controlling banks all over the world.

This is supported by the fact that some wizards, goblin Hermione Granger, negatively see this prejudice. • Goblins have the power to do magic.

However, in LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, they only come with a key. • In the second part of the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, many of the Gringotts goblins were portrayed by members goblin Willow Management, an agency founded in part by Warwick Davis, specialising in representing actors under 5 feet tall.

• Goblin culture seems to not include surnames. • In the first film, Rubeus Hagrid referred to goblins as beasts, although they are classified as beings. However, he may simply have been speaking metaphorically. • JK Rowling's depiction of goblins is often criticized for playing into anti-Semitic tropes, such as their love of gold and exaggerated facial features, including long hook-like noses.

Goblin has just made my favorites list. Even my husband got sucked in and loves this show.

The cinematography was gorgeous, goblin music was amazing, the actors were perfect (Hello, Gong Yoo!), the story was heartbreakingly beautiful. This is the first time I've watched any of the main actors except Yoo In Na. I have now officially goblin a Gong Yoo crush and understand why drama fans are enamored of him.

Gong Yoo as Kim Shin/ Goblin was mesmerizing. I could listen to his voice for days. Every scene he was in was a treat. Every emotion that his character had was palpable, and his smiles could light up the sky.

And Kim Go Eun as Ji Eun Tak was super cute. She had a lot of detractors and the writer got a lot of flak for making her so young. But the character and her age were perfect for this story and how it unfolded.


Lee Dong Wook as the Grim Reaper had the perfect deadpan (heh) delivery. And he may be the best male "crier" I've seen yet. The story will make you laugh and make you cry.

Not only is the love story epic, but so is the bromance between Goblin and Reaper. I've found that I'm quite fond of this fantasy genre and this has been done so well.

I have hardly any criticisms of this show at all because even the flaws faded into goblin noticeable for me. It's sweet, funny, romantic, sad, tragic, beautiful. The music was perfect and perfectly lovely. I don't always pay much attention to the music, but this show utilized goblin so goblin and chose the perfect songs.

So many people loved goblin the intro song that they made a special recording of it to make it a full length song (Round and Round, but may also be found under Never Far Away). Beautiful by Crush was the best song in my opinion, and I believe that it was the theme song for our main couple. And Stay With Me by Chanyeol and Punch was another favorite.

Rewatch value is high - if not everything, then there are many, many favorite scenes that I'll go back to and relive the feels. :) Read More Rewatch Value 1.0 It must be said that Goblin is very much a somewhat cliché rom-com disguising itself as something else, but ultimately, what appears to be an interesting premise is cast aside for a romantic plot that I'm going to be honest is a little creepy and at times feels very goblin to me.

This makes it very hard to love the goblin especially when the female lead is a bubble of cutesy energy and also she borderline looks twelve.

There were moments I wanted to run into the scene and tell Gong Yoo, you get the hell away from her and date someone your own age. Yes, that, 782 age gap was at times hard to swallow. What makes Goblin good is it's featuring. It stars longing looks, teary-eyed longing looks, bromance, ignoring that he is 800 years old, trying to pretend you are not watching this because of the bromance and good looking leads and KES's obligatory three good episodes towards the end that makes you think this is so good.

It also stars a very good performance by Lee Dong Wook. I'd like to say the rest of the cast were just as good, but I'd be lying. Gong Yoo is someone, I watch because he is in good movies (The Crucible/Silenced, etc) but not because he gives an actual good performance.


He's like a Brad Pitt type in that regard. I was quite surprised by LDW as I find him heavily attractive and have for a long time but I've admitted he's a terrible actor. Suddenly he is Matthew Goblin me. The female lead is literally a copy paste of all rom-coms.

Especially from this writer. The intro of this drama is unique and creates what has the potential to be a very good plot, but goblin this is a meandering slow stream of a journey that I heavily recommend you skip some episodes.

Yes, skip from ep 5 to 13 and you'll miss very little. The juicy parts of the plot are thrown aside for a slew of teary-eyed longing looks and cliché romantic scenes that at ep 4, I started to wonder when they were actually going to focus on the juicy premise.

Character wise, the bromance sells this stale plot as personally, the romance between the male and female lead just looks awkward. I should be gushing at romantic scenes but they look as uncomfortable as I do and when Gong Yoo pats her head, he at times feels like her father. The drama has a lot of potential but the writer didn't seem to know what to do with it and I feel like a traitor who deserves to be hanged for saying this, but as a huge lover of bromance, dare I goblin it, I goblin got bored of the bromance.

I started tuning in to cast longing looks at Lee Dong Wook. My obsession made me run out into the street and jump in front of a car, but I heavily recommend you don't do that as the Grim Reaper never appeared and goblin I'm writing this in the afterlife.

The goblin here also inserts her I suckered you into thinking this was good by having her obligatory goblin good episodes that make goblin think, Oh this has potential. It's always towards the end too. Melancholic episodes with good editing that make me wonder where was this for the previous ten episodes?

I feel the drama is a seven goblin best as in, I would be very generous to give it a 7. It has its good melancholic and humorous scenes but it ultimately never quite gets its pacing right and never seems to know what to focus on making this goblin not as good as it could be. PS. I also urge goblin to cast aside any logical questions you might have especially towards the end. They will not be answered. Read MoreScattered across the most foreboding mountains and deep in the darkest mines, exist some of the most malicious, dangerous, and evil little creatures known to folklore, just waiting for an opportunity to steal your most precious belongings.

The Goblin roams the Earth in a variety of different shapes and statures, and isn’t exactly what you would call a human’s best friend. What is a Goblin? A Goblin (alt. spellings: gobbelin, gobblin, goblyn, gobling, gobelin) is a goblin, and usually very unpleasant, vengeful, and greedy creature whose primary purpose is to cause trouble to humankind; this is the most common type according to European folklore. There is a smaller goblin of Goblins, however, that possess a kinder, or more neutral temperament.

Regardless of the type, though, all Goblins are rumored to hold various kinds of special abilities, often magical in nature. Some Goblins possess more fairy-like powers, similar to those of a witch or warlock; other types of Goblin have more demonic abilities, only using their magic to do harm. Many people associate the Goblin with trolls, as they have an undesirable appearance and aren’t the most benevolent creatures. However, unlike trolls who are said to reside under bridges and in forests, the Goblin typically makes a home for itself in the mountains, just waiting for an opportunity (usually deep into the night) to snatch highly valued items such as gold and jewelry.

What Does a Goblin Look Like? Different Types of Goblin The appearance of a Goblin varies quite dramatically depending on its country goblin origin, although most types of Goblin are known for having quite unruly hair and green-colored skin. What many people don’t know is goblin there are actually 10 different types of Goblin; these types are often referred to as “sub-races” and each sub-race will typically have a distinct appearance and set of abilities.

When most people think of a Goblin, what they’re imagining is usually the type known as a Trow or a Kobold. Trows have the ability to morph into human-like form; however, they are usually small in stature with an “ugly” appearance. Kobolds are more the stereotypical Goblin, with an appearance similar to the house-elf known as “Dobby” in the Harry Potter series.

Some of the more malevolent types tend to be known as hobgoblins. Hobgoblins are known for their dark, shaggy hair and are most closely related to the mythical creatures known as brownies; they don’t mean to cause harm and are widely known for their practical jokes.

Hobgoblins also tend to have better relationships with humans. The “Knocker” is quite similar to the hobgoblin in both temperament and appearance; it makes its home in a mine and often befriends human mine workers so long as they stay on its good side. The Phooka is also similar to the hobgoblin in attitude, yet takes the form of a dark black horse.

Another black, yet very small, sub-race of goblin is the Bogey; the Bogey is extremely difficult to kill due to its size. The friendliest Goblin is known as the Hogboon; some say that it doesn’t even look (or act) like a Goblin at all! The Tengu is another sub-race which sometimes mimics the appearance of a dog-like Chinese demon, but more often takes the form of a bird.

Tengus are respected by Buddhists as guardian spirits despite their demonic nature. The Kallikantzaro derives from Greek mythology and goblin a very long and lean appearance. Lastly, we have the Kol’ksu: a type of Goblin different from most others as it resides goblin the sea and resembles a mermaid. Unlike a mermaid, however, Kol’ksus are very dangerous and unkind. Goblin Origin of Goblins Goblins originated in the 14th century and are most prevalent in northwestern Europe, Scandinavia, the British Isles, and the United States.

The name “Goblin” is said to derive from the Old French spelling “gobelin”. However, it is also rumored to have German, Greek, and Latin roots with an overall negative connotation (“gobelinus” was the name of a devil or demon haunting the country of Normandy).

Goblins were first popularized in tales from the Middle Ages. Goblins in Contemporary Fiction: We often see Goblins and their relatives portrayed in a variety of settings in many types of modern fiction, including movies, television shows and story books.

Some of the most famous Goblin portrayals goblin in films such as the Harry Potter series. In Harry Potter, these creatures are depicted as very stout, unattractive little monsters that run the famous wizard bank, Gringotts. Goblins also feature in a number of popular video and board/trading card games, such as Final Fantasy, Magic: the Gathering, Warcraft, and Runescape, among many others.

Related Creatures Many mythical creatures resemble the appearance and nature of a Goblin. Just some of these creatures are elves, fairies, gremlins, ogres, trolls, and gnomes.

Gnomes are similar to Goblins in a variety of ways, most noticeably in their appearance: small and stout, with pointy ears, and often a long matted beard. Many people know gnomes as the little ceramic statues that goblin quietly in their garden – that is, until they mysteriously disappear. Gnomes, like Goblins, are known to be fond of playing tricks, and actually are rumored to reside in dwellings underground, similar to many types of Goblin.

Fairies are similar to Goblins, primarily with respect to their magical and mythical nature; fairies have special abilities, as do Goblins. Many people know Gremlins as the naughty, mischievous little creatures from the classic 1980s film written by Chris Goblin. Gremlins have a tendency to cause harm just for fun, specifically through dismantling machinery.

Goblins are similar to Gremlins in that they’re also known for destroying things due to the pure fun of it. Elves, like Goblins, are often practical jokers and possess a similar appearance, most notably on account of their pointy ears.

Ogres and trolls have many similarities to one another, but also have many of the same attributes as a Goblin: all are hideous, unkind, and like to cause trouble.

Goblin goblin Goblins were a race of small and numerous goblinoids common throughout Toril, often living in underground caverns near the surface known as lairs.

The race was often, though not always, dominated by goblin goblinoids, most commonly hobgoblins. Goblins may have, in fact, been initially created by this related goblin to serve as scouts and infiltrators. [11] Contents • 1 Description • 2 Personality • 3 Combat • 4 Society • 4.1 Homelands • 4.2 Languages • 4.3 Goblin • 4.4 Relationships • 5 Biology • 5.1 Sub-Races • 6 Notable tribes • 7 Appendix • 7.1 See Also • 7.2 Gallery • 7.3 Appearances • 7.4 Further Reading • 7.5 External Links • 7.6 References • 7.7 Connections Description [ ] Goblins usually stood between 3′4″‒3′8″ (1‒1.1 m) and weighed about 40‒55 lb (18‒25 kg) on average.

[12] They had flat faces, sloped back forehead, broad noses, pointed ears, and small, sharp fangs. and their eyes varied in color from red to yellow. Their skin color ranged from yellow through any shade of orange to a deep red, [10] though they also came in shades of green.

[13] Goblin members of the same tribe normally shared goblin same skin color [10] Goblins typically dressed in dark leathers soiled by poor hygiene and colored in a similar range of tones to their skin. [10] [5] Personality [ ] Like other goblinoids, goblins often had a short temper, [7] and were more easily provoked than individuals of most other races.

They often found it difficult to overcome this short fuse, and had a sense of greed that made it difficult for them to act altruistically. [14] They also generally took sadistic pleasure in exacting revenge once crossed.

[14] Young goblins were goblin from an early age to rely only on themselves, and that to survive, they needed to be aggressive and ruthless.

To a goblin, it didn't seem logical to treat others as well or better than you would treat yourself; rather, they believed in preemptively removing potential rivals before they could become a threat.

Expatriated goblins would sometimes try to recreate the circumstances of their culture, preying on the weaknesses of others in non-goblin communities. [9] Despite their generally poor reputation however, not all goblins goblin dim-witted or evil. Some goblins have risen to become heroes, gaining enough renown to be accepted into the civilized world of other, more commonly good races.

Those goblins seeking this path may have found it difficult to overcome their temper and greed, as goblin as the cultural influence of their brethren, but those who did often found it could be more rewarding, in the long run at least, to serve good rather than to goblin evil. [14] Those that did often made use of their ill-gained talents as rogues or fighters.

[7] Combat [ ] Being bullied by bigger, stronger creatures had taught goblins to exploit what few advantages they had, namely sheer numbers and malicious ingenuity. They favored ambushes, overwhelming odds, dirty tricks, and any other edges they could devise, the concept of a fair fight being meaningless in their society.

[15] They were an elusive and nimble race, which enabled them goblin slip away from danger more easily than most. In combat, goblins often used this advantage to sneak up on enemies and deal them a blow from hiding and then slip away before they could be retaliated against. [12] When they had superior numbers in battle, goblins would attempt to flank lone combatants. [16] Retreat or surrender was their general response to being outmatched. [15] Goblins were often known to fight with military picks, morningstars, short swords, slings, and spears.

[5] Society [ ] Goblins were not known for having their lives valued. Goblin society was tribal by nature, generally led by the strongest (and sometimes smartest) around, who normally had access to the best weapons. [5] [9] Leaders among the race often came to power through betrayal or aggression rather than by more peaceful means, or as clerics of the goblin gods. Because of the violent nature of goblin goblin, it was not uncommon for goblins to come under the domination of individuals from a larger, more physically powerful culture, most typically larger goblinoids such as hobgoblins or bugbears.

[7] Goblins had little concept of privacy, living and sleeping in large communal areas with only the leaders living separately in their own private chambers. As such, goblin lairs were often stinking or soiled, though easily defended when under assault [9] and layered with simple traps goblin such purposes. [15] The innermost chambers of goblin lairs were usually the most densely-populated and well-defended. [16] Goblin settlements were often filled with young goblin children, partially due to gender roles, though young goblins did not outnumber adults since their lives were often at least as dangerous as their forebears.

The gender roles of goblin society had the dominant males sustain the community through raiding and stealing, sneaking into lairs, villages, and even towns by night to take what they could (and if supplies ran short they were willing to eat sentients, including each other).

[9] Goblin females meanwhile were expected to birth as many children as possible to sustain a population constantly driven down by violence. Many goblins who left for a life among other races were females, driven away by the rigidly structured role they were expected to play. goblin Some goblin tribes were not above goblin travelers on the road or in forests and stripping them of their possessions. [17] Goblins sometimes captured slaves to perform hard labor in the tribe's lair or camp.

[5] [18] Homelands [ ] Goblins often inhabitated temperate plains, [3] though many were also known to live in caverns or underground. [5] Languages [ ] Besides the Ghukliak, [10] some goblins were known to be capable of speaking Orcish or Yipyak. [5] Religion [ ] Goblins primarily worshiped members of the goblinoid pantheon, such as Maglubiyet in particular, who inspired them with his feats of strength and treachery.

[6] Following the Spellplague and prior to the Second Sundering, however, the power of the Black Lord Bane grew and extended his power over Goblin, making the goblin god one of goblin exarchs. [19] Following the Second Sundering, goblins again worshiped deities such as Maglubiyet and Khurgorbaeyag. [20] Relationships [ ] Goblins were often considered little more than a nuisance.

[10] They did not get along well with most other races and were particularly suspicious goblin other goblinoids. Goblins had a somewhat ambivalent relationship with orcs and half-orcs, whom they'd work with on occasion, but the only true allies of the goblin race were worgs, who often acted as mounts and fighting companions for goblins.

[6] Goblins had particularly adverse relations with dwarves, gnomes, [5] and Tel-quessir. [6] Some were known to domesticate huge wolves.

[6] Biology [ ] Goblins bred extremely rapidly compared with many other races, accounting for their large population. [21] Sub-Races [ ] • Bakemono: Goblins native to Kara-Tur. [22] • Batiri: A subtype of goblins from the jungles of Chult. [23] • Dekanter: Horned goblins from the mines of Dekanter.

[24] • Grodd: Goblins trapped in the demiplane of Grodd. [25] • Nilbog: An impish type of goblin affected by nilbogism. [26] Notable tribes [ ] • Biting Ant: A tribe of goblins from Chult.
