Goblins, originally known as Imps, are a recurring species in several Final Fantasy games, starting with the first Final Fantasy. They are basic enemies which are usually encountered at the start of the game. They have low HP and are usually defeated from taking one hit, even when party members are at level 1. Goblins often carry a weapon with them, usually a curved dagger.
Final Fantasy series
In Final Fantasy, most Goblins are encountered on the world map, mostly inside the forests and near towns. They have a slightly stronger variant, Goblin Guard. In the original Nintendo Entertainment System release, they are named IMP (also formatted as Imp in the game manual). In later remakes, starting with Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, Goblins have two other variants, Black Goblins and Knockers, and a Goblin ghost also appears in Whisperwind Cove.
Final Fantasy II
In Final Fantasy II, Goblins have a slightly different appearance but otherwise act same as in Final Fantasy. They are located in the surrounding areas of the towns Altair, Fynn, Paloom, Poft and Salamand. Goblins also appear at Semitt Falls and the Snow Cavern.
Final Fantasy IV
In Final Fantasy IV, Goblins are one of the most basic enemies. They can be found in most parts of the overworld and in Mist Cave, Antlion's Den, and Feymarch. Goblins have a similar appearance to their counterparts from the first Final Fantasy, except they have a green hat like in Final Fantasy II.
Like Final Fantasy III, Goblins can drop a Potion if defeated, but may instead drop a Tent, an Hourglass, or a Goblin summon, which Rydia can use for 1 MP during battles. The Goblin summon can attack opponents using its Goblin Punch attack.
Final Fantasy Mystic Quest
In Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, they are named Brownie, although their Japanese name is still Goblin. Brownies are only encountered in the Level Forest. They wear red clothes, a red beanie and white shoes. If a Brownie has taken enough damage, its beanie is removed, revealing a black mohawk and a bandage on its head.
