** Goblins being beginner fodder is deconstructed here. The reward for quests is based on how much the person placing the quest can pay. While merchants can pay generously to eliminate bandits, small villages being raided by goblins have few funds. Experienced adventurers won't bother with goblin requests because the pay doesn't match the danger involved. Beginning adventurers see the low reward and expect it's due to the relative ease of the request and so are unprepared.

* ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' has goblins called goblings as common enemies and [=NPCs=]. The first variation is water gobling, a green goblin that is found near water and wears a spiked ball for armor. The second kind are trash talking goblins made out of fire. The next two are a friendly lizard like monk goblin and an allied purple goblin who unknowingly wears a pack of TnT on his back. An unnamed, invincible, flamethrower-using gobling is also present in one level.

* The goblins in ''ComicStrip/PhoebeAndHerUnicorn'' are basically civilized, but speak entirely in "blart"s, which Marigold can translate. Their laughter causes apps on phones to crash.

* The goblin mage Mozu from ''VideoGame/{{Gigantic}}'' is the only one of her species seen so far. She's a tiny, purple creature with long ears, a catlike face, a long tail and hands and feet with three digits each. While not exactly malicious, she's definitely mischievous and has a penchant for thievery.

* Goblins from ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}'' are herd-based, Gremlins-esque trouble makers from the Darklands. Should any of their kind die, even if the "culprit" didn't actually do it, the Goblins swarm them and issue payback on them "ten-fold." Luckily, they're dumb enough to blame the vehicle if one gets run over, and not the driver.

** Also some fun back-to-front etymology there. The element cobalt is named after the mythical kobolds, because medieval miners blamed them for poisoning the mine when they got sick from inhaling arsenic-laden cobalt dust.

* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'', being a generic system, can offer various sorts of goblin:
** ''GURPS Goblins'' features an entire alternate Earth exactly like ours circa the 1830's, but inhabited only by goblins -- a parody of Regency England. These particular goblins are extremely varied, being shaped by the exact forms of mistreatment they suffer in childhood, but are alike in being base, crude, and vulgar, as well as standing up to cartoon levels of interpersonal violence.
** Another ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' setting book, ''[[TabletopGame/{{Banestorm}} GURPS Banestorm]]'', features goblins as short, green humanoids, immigrants from the mostly arid desert world of Gabrook. They are intelligent, civilized and naturally curious, and actually fit well enough into human society. Hobgoblins are their larger, dumber cousins; while a few live amongst goblins as servants, most remain hunter-gatherers living in small bands in the wilderness.

** Hobgoblins are a bit like big (human sized) goblins, but are even more deceitful and backstabbing. They have their own civilisation (a [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Mongol style khanate]] far to the east of the Old World), but are mostly seen in their role as slave drivers working for the Chaos Dwarfs--which is part of the reason even other greenskins will have nothing to do with them.
