Gilgoblins also known as gilblins, gill goblin, or water-goblins are a race of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer.


The adaptation to the gilgoblin to survive in aquatic regions has apparently drained their high brain functions, similar to their relatives. Instead, their actions are constantly involving or made entirely out of greed. This leads to them stealing things.

The gilgoblin live in large clams, which they decorate with their treasures they find or steal. Items included in decoration are cannons and cannonballs and other unique items.

Their is no exact leader in gilgoblin society. King Gurboggle self-proclaimed himself as king of at least Gurboggle's Ledge.
