Goblins are one of the most common, low-level monsters found around Gielinor. They are a very popular monster killed by low-level players training their combat skills.

Though lacking intelligence and strength, goblins make up for this with their overwhelming numbers. Goblins are followers of the god Bandos, who they refer to as the "Big High War God". Goblins are frequently at war with the other races of Gielinor, in particular dwarves and gnomes.

Goblins are often one of the first monsters a player will encounter in RuneScape, as they inhabit much of the area around Lumbridge.

The single armed goblin with a blue mail (as indicated in the gallery below) is the only aggressive goblin found anywhere, other than the variants found in the God Wars Dungeons. Whenever a player is standing anywhere inside the Goblin Cave (even when outside the goblin's direct surroundings), it will yell Halt intruder!, within regular time intervals. This goblin has a wander range spanning almost the entire goblin cave, so it may attack players practically anywhere inside these caves.
