The Goblin steals things. If you try to shoot it with a bow, it will pick up the arrows you shoot. Goblins are meant to be tricksters and thieves, so its personality is displayed perfectly. Goblins are also quite weak and their appearance is similar to what they are portrayed as in Fairy Stories and Tales. They will attack in Hordes if multiple Goblins are spawned. In Fairy Stories they like vicious weapons like clubs and axes but do not show particular like or dislike for these weapons in-game. A goblin is a good alternative to a clone.
