Goblins are one of the most common, low-level monsters found around Gielinor. They are a very popular monster killed by low-level players training their combat skills.

Though lacking intelligence and strength, goblins make up for this with their overwhelming numbers. Goblins are followers of the god Bandos, who they refer to as the "Big High War God". Goblins are frequently at war with the other races of Gielinor, in particular dwarves and gnomes.

Goblins are often one of the first monsters a player will encounter in RuneScape, as they inhabit much of the area around Lumbridge.

It is important to note that the goblins residing in the Stronghold of Security do not drop chef's hats.


Goblins can be found in a variety of places including, but not limited to:
