An intelligent humanoid creature, essentially a weaker, smaller, and smarter version of orcs. They appear prominently throughout the broader fantasy media sphere in movies, tabletop games, video games, novels, and more, typically in antagonistic roles.
Goblins are most commonly portrayed as child-sized or human-sized creatures with green skin, fangs, pointy noses, and large pointy ears. Some media exaggerate their appearance further by giving them oversized ears, often half the size of their face.
Like their larger counterparts, goblins are usually depicted as arch-enemies of elves, and are often allied with orcs for this reason.
