Goblin King (ゴブリン王) is a legendary figure known in the New World for slaying dragons.


Since he is called the Goblin King, they most likely have racial characteristics of a goblin.


In the Web Novel, the Goblin King is said to not hold any hostility towards the humans as he is married to one of their kind. The Goblin King's positive attitude towards the female human was to the extent of allowing her to accompany him on his way to face his adversaries, such as dragons.


In the Web Novel, the Goblin King was seemingly in a relationship with a human princess and married her. He was said to have had a family with her, as she was pregnant with his child. He also rode on a dragon alongside her to fight something even stronger than dragons together. Everywhere he went, the Goblin King would challenge new foes and easily achieve victory over them.[1]
