Gokou (ゴコウ) is a goblin soldier and a member of Enri Emmot's Goblin Troop.
In the Anime Gokou resembles Kaijali, though he lacks a facial scar like the former.
Like most in the Goblin Troop, Gokou is both disciplined and professional in his duties.
Enri Emmot used the Horn of the Goblin General to summon Gokou and his brethren. Thanks to their help, they came to support her and Carne Village in rebuilding and protecting its inhabitants.

Gokou along with his two comrades, Unlai and Kaijali were part of an escort assigned by Jugem to protect Enri and Nfirea Bareare while they collected herbs in the Great Forest of Tob. When a goblin child came running, being chased by a Barghest, the goblins' first instinct was to protect their charges. Gokou followed Enri's orders to save the goblin child. The three goblins surrounded the creature, which caused it to try to use the goblin child as a hostage, only for the goblins to call its bluff. The goblins managed to lure it into a glue trap made by Nfirea and successfully slay it.
Later the group returned to Carne Village with the goblin child, who introduced him as Agu. They were greeted by the sudden appearance of Lupusregina Beta. Upon reaching the house where the Goblin Troop stayed, they were joined by Brita. Together they learned of the chaotic situation of the Tob Forest, and the existence of the Demon Snake of the West and the Giant of the East.
