The Goblin Mage is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX. It can be found on either the Outer Continent or Donna Plains.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

It is stronger than the regular Goblin enemy, has the ability to cast magic, such as Vanish, and usually appears in pairs.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Its low HP means that the party can defeat it before it gets a chance to cast Vanish, and one of Vivi's spells or Dagger's summons can put an end to the annoying status.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A 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.
