Goblin is a recurring character in the Chocobo series. His roles vary however; spanning from enemy, racer and pop-up summon.
Goblin lives in the Mythril Mines outside of Chocobo's village. Also known as Gobin Hood, he steals from the rich to give to the poor—himself. He talks with an accent which almost mirror Cockney or pirate speak.
Races in his Gob-Cart H4, which is faster than most other racers, but with poorer turning. Goblin has the "Mug" ability which steals the magic stones from other racers when activated. A random stone is given if no one else has a stone. His theme is a remixed version of Pirates Ahoy, Faris's unofficial theme.
Goblin appears as different types of enemies in the dungeons. There is a pair of Goblin lovers in Chef le Tonberry's restaurant.
Goblin appears as a pop-up summon. He also makes an appearance in the microgame "Tap, Tap Trap" where the player uses a Golden Needle to release him from a cockatrice's petrification. Interestingly, he speaks with a Cockney accent in this game.
He appears as a fortune teller in Lostime, on pop-up duel cards, and as enemies in the dungeons.
goblin is a small, mischievous creature found in many European folk tales and legends. The word "goblin" comes from the Norman French word Gobelinus, the name of a ghost that haunted the town of Évreux in the 12th century.A
