The Goblin, also known as Imp, is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV. It is the weakest enemy and attacks in large groups; sometimes as many as eight Goblins appear at once. They are easy to kill and can drop the rare Goblin spell for Rydia. In the GBA version, an easy way to get the summon is to battle right at the entrance to Antion's Den B1, where there is a higher frequency of Goblin.

A short, humanoid creature. It wields a sword in all the versions. It has a large curved nose, pointed ears and horns. It wears a green outfit with light brown shoulder armor and boots.
