Hobgoblins (ホブゴブリン) are a variant race related to goblins.


Hobgoblins are said to be taller than their goblin cousins, reaching to the height close to adult humans.


Possessing the acute hearing and night vision as regular goblins, Hobgoblins are superior to the former in every way, such as in height and also in intelligence. Hobgoblins are also capable of articulating and carrying out complete sentences in a legitimate conversation.[1]
