Goblins are a diminutive species of monster in Final Fantasy Tactics. Among the first monsters battled in the game, they fit the classic Goblin niche of also being some of the weakest. They have an elemental weakness to Ice.

Regular red-capped Goblins are fought in many of the Chapter 1 locations and are quite weak, having a low movement range.

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
