* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Compared to most other women captured by goblins shown in the series, her injuries are quite minimal. Even a bleeding cut she received after a goblin guard hit her over the head with her spear appears to be just gone after one page in the manga. The worst thing about her appearance throughout the chapter how she is completely naked and covered in "fluids".

A female high-level adventurer among the veterans that gather to counter appears in Chapter 4 of Volume 4 of the goblin champions in light novel and the farm raid.''Brand New Day'' manga as the captive of a small nest of goblins.



* AdaptationDistillation: A rather interesting example. In the anime, Martial Artist make more appearances than in the manga as a frequent background character. She is pretty easy to identify among the crowd due to her unique design. However, her fight scenes were completely removed during the Raid on the Farm arc, when she was most prominently featured in the manga.
* AdaptationDyeJob: In the manga, her hair was a much paler, bright colour, while in the anime it was made a very dark brown.
* ArmedLegs: A set of thickly layered flanged greaves augment the striking power of her knee-checks.
* BareFistedMonk: Gives a glimpse of what Fighter might have been capable of as a successful adventurer the same way more prominent vets do for Warrior and Wizard.
* BareYourMidriff: Her outfit exposes a good portion of her stomach.
* KickChick: Enough leg-strength to reach a goblin champion's face with a flying knee and lay it out with one hit.
* LivingProp: Even more than Amazon, who at least had multiple scenes and a short conversation. The most exposure she gets is the splash page of the mass brawl against the goblin champions, but it's one of the most visually striking moments in the farm raid, and she gets front-and-center framing and a clear look of her face unlike the other bit characters. She does appear in the anime but only as a background character.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: She is noticeable one of shortest veteran adventurers (granted we are comparing her to the likes of Heavy Warrior, Lizard Priest, and Amazon), but that still doesn't stop her going toe to toe with a goblin champion and win.
* PowerFist: Wears spiked brass knuckles, so probably not a complete ExtremityExtremist.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Has a tanktop-like shirt, and is the only veteran adventurer to fight hand-to-hand.

The members Guild, initially consisting of Warrior, Fighter, and Wizard. They were Newbie Swordsman, Half-Elf Shaman, Monk, ill-prepared for a goblin hunt they thought would be easy and Axeman.were met with horrible results.



* AdaptationExpansion: Newbie Swordsman kind of disappears after the events of ''Year One'' in the manga and light novel. However, in the anime version, he is shown to still be an active adventurer by the time we get to the main story and takes part in the battle at the farm. He is surprising given quite a bit of screen time during the fight.
* AnArmAndALeg: Axeman loses his arm to a Rock Eater.
* AnAxeToGrind: Axeman wielded an axe before he lost his arm.
* BreakTheCutie: Poor Newbie Swordsman, he was a nice guy before Half-Elf Shaman's death broke him.

* CareerEndingInjury: Axeman lost his arm, effectively ending his career; The Rock Eater later severely mangled Newbie Swordsman when he critically injured it. Although this is averted in the anime in Newbie Swordsman's case, as he is still an active adventurer as shown in Episode 11, and implies he did recover to continue being an adventurer in the other continuities.
* ContinuityNod: In the anime, Swordman stated that he became an adventurer on the same day as Goblin Slayer, which is a callback to his introduction in ''Year One''.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Newbie Swordsman in the first volume of ''Year One''; he registers as an adventurer the same day as Goblin Slayer, attempts to partner with and befriend him multiple times, his participation in the Rock Eater hunt and desire for revenge against it parallel Goblin Slayer's crusade, and he ends the story making peace with himself as Goblin Slayer affirms his purpose.
* DrowningMySorrows: Newbie Swordsman is seen listlessly drinking himself into a stupor in the aftermath of the quest in which he lost Half-Elf Shaman.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: Newbie Swordsman had these after Half-Elf Shaman's death.
* EatenAlive: Half-Elf Shaman's fate at the hands of a Rock Eater.

* TheLostLenore: Half-Elf Shaman was this to Newbie Swordsman.
* MakingASplash: Half-Elf Shaman used Water magic to stop a goblin from stealing a lamb.
* ShipTease: Newbie Swordsman clearly had a thing for Half-Elf Shaman and she appeared to be returning his feelings until...
* SurvivorGuilt: Newbie Swordsman is clearly not happy he survived while Hal-Elf Shaman died.
* WeakButSkilled: In the anime, Swordsman is a veteran adventurer with 5 years of experience, and acts as one of the commanding figures during the battle at the farm. However, he doesn't have the same fighting prowess like many of the other veteran adventurers, and opts to stand back when the hobgoblins and goblin champions shows up.

They were ill-prepared for a goblin hunt they thought would be easy and were met with horrible results.



* ActionDad: Middle-Aged Monk is noted to have a family to support, which is why he is so desperate to make the cut for a promotion.
* AdaptedOut: The trio aren't shown during Rhea Scout's evaluation in the anime.
* AnAxeToGrind: Axe Warrior's WeaponOfChoice, and the primary feature that distinguishes him from other side-character warriors in the light novel.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: The female Half-Elf Wizard's attire is markedly less ragged than that of her two male companions, with no major tears or dirt marks on her skin, and she can be considered a bit of an UnkemptBeauty. Then again, as the party's wizard, whereas the latter two are close-quarters fighters, she's probably less likely to get into the messy parts of fights.

An up-and-coming party
of Volume 4 of Porcelain and Obsidian ranked adventurers who were hired to clear the light novel area surrounding the training camp of goblins, only to get wiped by a troll in a mausoleum. Consisted of General, Lizardman, Acolyte, Thief, and the ''Brand New Day'' manga as the captive of a small nest of goblins.Warrior-Priest.



* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Compared to most other women captured by goblins shown in the series, her injuries are quite minimal. Even a bleeding cut she received after a goblin guard hit her over the head with her spear appears to be just gone after one page in the manga. The worst thing about her appearance throughout the chapter how she is completely naked and covered in "fluids".
* BladeOnAStick: Her primary weapon. She is so attached to it that it borders on a CompanionCube.
* BreakTheCutie: {{Averted}}; the goblin viewpoint character of Chapter 4 notes with interest that she has refused to let herself [[AngstComa become catatonic]] or [[StockholmSyndrome submit to their attentions]] past a point when most other girls quit fighting, and after being rescued she returns to life as an adventurer by the end of the volume. Goblin Slayer himself comments on her willpower with a comparison to her retrieved spear.
--> '''Goblin Slayer:''' The [[ColdBloodedTorture shaft is broken]], but the [[{{Determinator}} point remains]].
* BreedingSlave: The goblins' intended fate for her before she gets saved by Goblin Slayer.
* CompanionCube: Her BladeOnAStick seems to this to her as she spends most of the chapter begging the goblins to return it to her. She later cries tears of relief when Goblin Slayer gives it back to her at the end of the chapter.
* DistressedDamsel: Functions as this in Chapter 4 of the ''Goblin Slayer: Brand New Day''.
* HeroicWillpower: Unlike other women held captive by goblins, Spearwoman never went into an AngstComa despite everything she endured during her time in the goblin nest. Even after her traumatizing experience, she still chose to continue her career as an adventurer. The only other known person that continued being an adventurer after being captured by goblins is [[TheAce Sword Maiden]].
* MsFanservice: A fairly curvy woman with large breasts and HartmanHips that spend most of the first and only chapter she appears in completely naked. Although this fall under FanDisservice territory seeing as she was forced to be a SexSlave for a nest of goblins before Goblin Slayer saved her.
* RapeAsDrama: Spends several days having no less then 17 goblins and a hobgoblin pass her around.
* TenMinuteRetirement: The epilogue chapter of Volume 4 has Guild Girl reveal that she has recovered from her experience enough to go back on duty after scant weeks of recovery, being the one to deliver the basket of corn the villagers sent Goblin Slayer as a token of gratitude.
--> Guild Girl let her eyes drift to the corn with an expression that bespoke relief. It was rare that adventurers or mercenaries found themselves with a second chance when they had failed once.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade B.

* MsFanservice: Right up there with Witch in looks, and barely wears any armor.
* StatuesqueStunner: The tallest woman in the series, and is no less attractive.
* ThongOfShielding: Part of her adventurer's attire.

[[folder:Martial Artist]]
[[quoteright:269:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/martialartist_8.jpg]]

A female high-level adventurer among the veterans that gather to counter the goblin champions in the farm raid.
----
* AdaptationDistillation: A rather interesting example. In the anime, Martial Artist make more appearances than in the manga as a frequent background character. She is pretty easy to identify among the crowd due to her unique design. However, her fight scenes were completely removed during the Raid on the Farm arc, when she was most prominently featured in the manga.
* AdaptationDyeJob: In the manga, her hair was a much paler, bright colour, while in the anime it was made a very dark brown.
* ArmedLegs: A set of thickly layered flanged greaves augment the striking power of her knee-checks.
* BareFistedMonk: Gives a glimpse of what Fighter might have been capable of as a successful adventurer the same way more prominent vets do for Warrior and Wizard.
* BareYourMidriff: Her outfit exposes a good portion of her stomach.
* KickChick: Enough leg-strength to reach a goblin champion's face with a flying knee and lay it out with one hit.
* LivingProp: Even more than Amazon, who at least had multiple scenes and a short conversation. The most exposure she gets is the splash page of the mass brawl against the goblin champions, but it's one of the most visually striking moments in the farm raid, and she gets front-and-center framing and a clear look of her face unlike the other bit characters. She does appear in the anime but only as a background character.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: She is noticeable one of shortest veteran adventurers (granted we are comparing her to the likes of
Heavy Warrior, Lizard Priest, and Amazon), but that still doesn't stop her going toe to toe with a goblin champion and win.
* PowerFist: Wears spiked brass knuckles, so probably not a complete ExtremityExtremist.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Has a tanktop-like shirt, and is the only veteran adventurer to fight hand-to-hand.

[[folder:Spearwoman]]
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goblinslayerspearwoman.png]]

A female adventurer that appears in Chapter 4 of Volume 4 of the light novel and the ''Brand New Day'' manga as the captive of a small nest of goblins.
----
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Compared to most other women captured by goblins shown in the series, her injuries are quite minimal. Even a bleeding cut she received after a goblin guard hit her over the head with her spear appears to be just gone after one page in the manga. The worst thing about her appearance throughout the chapter how she is completely naked and covered in "fluids".
* BladeOnAStick: Her primary weapon. She is so attached to it that it borders on a CompanionCube.
* BreakTheCutie: {{Averted}}; the goblin viewpoint character of Chapter 4 notes with interest that she has refused to let herself [[AngstComa become catatonic]] or [[StockholmSyndrome submit to their attentions]] past a point when most other girls quit fighting, and after being rescued she returns to life as an adventurer by the end of the volume. Goblin Slayer himself comments on her willpower with a comparison to her retrieved spear.
--> '''Goblin Slayer:''' The [[ColdBloodedTorture shaft is broken]], but the [[{{Determinator}} point remains]].
* BreedingSlave: The goblins' intended fate for her before she gets saved by Goblin Slayer.
* CompanionCube: Her BladeOnAStick seems to this to her as she spends most of the chapter begging the goblins to return it to her. She later cries tears of relief when Goblin Slayer gives it back to her at the end of the chapter.
* DistressedDamsel: Functions as this in Chapter 4 of the ''Goblin Slayer: Brand New Day''.
* HeroicWillpower: Unlike other women held captive by goblins, Spearwoman never went into an AngstComa despite everything she endured during her time in the goblin nest. Even after her traumatizing experience, she still chose to continue her career as an adventurer. The only other known person that continued being an adventurer after being captured by goblins is [[TheAce Sword Maiden]].
* MsFanservice: A fairly curvy woman with large breasts and HartmanHips that spend most of the first and only chapter she appears in completely naked. Although this fall under FanDisservice territory seeing as she was forced to be a SexSlave for a nest of goblins before Goblin Slayer saved her.
* RapeAsDrama: Spends several days having no less then 17 goblins and a hobgoblin pass her around.
* TenMinuteRetirement: The epilogue chapter of Volume 4 has Guild Girl reveal that she has recovered from her experience enough to go back on duty after scant weeks of recovery, being the one to deliver the basket of corn the villagers sent Goblin Slayer as a token of gratitude.
--> Guild Girl let her eyes drift to the corn with an expression that bespoke relief. It was rare that adventurers or mercenaries found themselves with a second chance when they had failed once.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade B.

[[folder:Ragged Party]]
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/raggedparty.png]]
[[caption-width-right:350:From left to right: Half-Elf Wizard, Axe Warrior and Middle-Aged Monk]]

A party of Steel-ranked adventurers hoping to be promoted to Sapphire-rank so they can have access to more lucrative quests. The members are Middle-Aged Monk, Half-Elf Wizard, Axe Warrior, and Rhea Scout.
----
* ActionDad: Middle-Aged Monk is noted to have a family to support, which is why he is so desperate to make the cut for a promotion.
* AdaptedOut: The trio aren't shown during Rhea Scout's evaluation in the anime.
* AnAxeToGrind: Axe
Warrior's squad gets pinned down by the Rock Eater WeaponOfChoice, and the Black Slimes, he shows up primary feature that distinguishes him from other side-character warriors in the light novel.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: The female Half-Elf Wizard's attire is markedly less ragged than that of her two male companions,
with no major tears or dirt marks on her skin, and she can be considered a bit of an UnkemptBeauty. Then again, as the rest party's wizard, whereas the latter two are close-quarters fighters, she's probably less likely to get into the messy parts of fights.
* BrokeEpisode: They very clearly are seeing no profit and are fraying at the seams because of it. Half-Elf Wizard's spellbook is falling apart, Axe Warrior's axe is going dull, and Middle-Aged Monk can't even afford a decent shaving kit. [[{{Foreshadowing}} Only Rhea Scout is cleanly attired and unconcerned about their future prospects]].
* FighterMageThief: Axe Warrior is the Fighter, Middle-Aged Monk and Half-Elf Wizard are the mages, and Rhea Scout is the thief.
* HalfHumanHybrid: As always, what the other half
of the adventurers just half-elf is.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: [[spoiler:None of them realize that Rhea Scout is NinjaLooting them before he gets kicked out of town by Guild Girl, though Half-Elf Wizard does express some suspicions about how blithe he was about promotion]].
* PrayerIsALastResort: Middle-Aged Monk sits down and desperately beseeches the heavens for success as they wait for their interview. Half-Elf Wizard defends him when Axe Warrior snaps at him and says she's a second away from joining in.
* ScaryTeeth: Axe Warrior has his teeth filed to points.
* ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler:After Rhea Scout is ousted for stealing treasure from the dungeons for himself and demoted to Porcelain-rank]], Guild Girl arranges for the remaining three to be promoted to Sapphire-rank.
* WarriorMonk: Middle-Aged Monk has the appearance of a fairly stereotypical Shaolin monk
in the nick of time to rally everyone to fight back.
* KnightlySwordAndShield: Is outfitted like a proper banneret, complete with an arming sword and heater shield.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Calls for a shield wall to halt the charging Rock Eater, and takes point-center position in it alongside the young Heavy Warrior.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: A nobleman actually, but still. Spearman scoffs that the man looks like he's been in more political squabbles than actual battles, but he nonetheless proves to be competent and stalwart when facing off against monsters.
* TheTeamBenefactor: The compact ballista and dwarf-forged black iron arrow used against the Rock Eater were implicitly provided by him, and they cost quite a pretty penny.
manga.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalDyeJob: On top of the sudden very deep tan the anime gives her, her hair is colored jet black when the manga had it only lightly shaded.


Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalCurves: Fighter in the anime has a noticeably sized-up bust, becoming larger than Wizard when she smaller in the manga.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: Spearman will not let him forget how in his first quest he entered a goblin cave and ended up not being able to use his greatsword properly to help his party fight their way through.


Added DiffLines:

* SlasherSmile: The light novels frequently describe him having a "shark-like grin" during battle.

Added DiffLines:

* BookDumb: Writes himself off as not having the smarts to handle an aristocratic or command position. When Goblin Slayer points out [[StreetSmart he's clearly not stupid]] and has the money to afford supplementary education, he admits he [[BrilliantButLazy doesn't have the time or inclination for it]] while still adventuring.


* MagicEnhancement: Acolyte would put a Blessing on Lizardman's sword, Warrior Priest would use Holy Smite on her own weapon.
* NotEnoughToBury: When Acolyte got hit with the Troll's club, her entire body except for one arm was pancaked into paste.
