Goblin Punch as seen in Dissidia Final Fantasy.

Attack with a thorough beating.

Final Fantasy Tactics description

Goblin Punch (ゴブリンパンチ, Goburin Panchi?), also known as GblinPnch, is a recurring ability of Goblin-type monsters and is a Blue Magic spell. It tends to have a random factor affecting its damage. It usually deals more damage if the caster's and the enemies' levels are the same. Oftentimes the spell costs no MP and deals non-elemental physical damage.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy IV[edit | edit source]

Goblin Punch is used by the Goblin summon dealing weak non-elemental damage to one enemy. In the 3D version, Goblin Punch instead deals moderate non-elemental damage.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-[edit | edit source]

Goblin Punch is Goblin's attack when summoned. It deals weak non-elemental damage to one enemy.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years[edit | edit source]

Goblin Punch is used by the Goblin summon. It deals damage to an enemy with base power 8, and costs 1 MP to cast.

Final Fantasy V[edit | edit source]

Attacks one enemy with a goblin's strength.

Description

Goblin Punch costs 0 MP and deals massive damage to enemies with a level equal to the caster's. Otherwise it deals damage equal to what the fight command would normally do, except it ignores rows. In either case, the attack ignores evasion.

There is a glitch where using the Power Drink item only enhances the power of the Goblin Punch, and no other attacks. There is also a glitch where if the player has the Excalipoor, or any staff/rod with a "false" attack power listed, equipped and uses Goblin Punch, the coding that causes the Excalipoor to do 1 damage will be ignored, allowing one to potentially deal massive damage. Both glitches are fixed in the mobile and Steam versions.

Final Fantasy VII[edit | edit source]

Non-elemental damage on any one opponent

Description

Goblin Punch is learned as an Enemy Skill from the Goblin enemy and deals damage equal to 75% of Attack, but x8 of the damage if the target is of equal level, and requires no MP to use. The skill can also be of use at the Gold Saucer Battle Square if one has their weapon broken as Goblin Punch will still do normal damage.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-[edit | edit source]

There are five versions of Goblin Punch. They are all Command Materia. The base Goblin Punch has Zack wind up for several seconds before unleashing a powerful attack. It uses 10 AP. Iron Fist is a slightly stronger Goblin Punch that also costs 10 AP. Magical Punch costs 99 MP and inflicts more damage the closer Zack is to max MP. Hammer Punch costs 99 AP and does higher damage as Zack is closer to max AP.

The strongest form, Costly Punch, expends 1/128th of Zack's max HP, doing greater damage as Zack is low on HP, and costs no AP. It will deal 0 damage if Zack's HP is greater than 1.11x his max HP. Even if he is at max HP, Costly Punch often does 9999 damage (up to 99,999 if Zack can break the damage limit).

Goblin Punch can be stolen from the boss in mission 4-4-4, and one can also be obtained in the waterfall minigame near Gongaga.

Causes Non-elemental damage to the enemy.

Description

Quina can learn Goblin Punch by eating a Goblin or Goblin Mage. The damage dealt increases the closer the caster's level is to the target's. It is also affected by the caster's strength and the target's Defense, as well as any status effects. The ability costs 4 MP to use. It can't be reflected and works with Return Magic. If the caster's level is not the same as the target's level, then the damage formula follows the normal Blue Magic formula.

If the level is the same, it uses the following formula instead:

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.

The Goblin Punch is likely inspired by Germanic mythology where troll and goblin creatures often fought bare-handed.
