Goblins are the first and weakest enemies encountered in Kingdom Rush.

Overview[]

Small evil humanoids with no outstanding abilities.

Goblins are the first enemies in the game, and also the weakest. They may pose a threat in the early levels when in large groups but are very weak by themselves. Later on, they are easily dealt with by almost anything.

Strategy[]

  • A Dwarven Artillery can take on hordes of goblins in one shot, a fact that comes in very handy in the early stages. Two Dwarven Bombards have the same capability, and are cheaper in comparison, but less reliable.
  • Because of the fairly rapid fire rate of archers, they can take on medium-sized groups of goblins without a huge amount of trouble.
  • Legionnaires with or without Spear-throw can kill Goblins in 2-4 hits.
  • In hard mode, Goblins can stand toe-to-toe with non-upgraded reinforcements.
  • The player should not rely on Mage Towers, especially in later levels, where they appear in numbers that can easily bypass even Sorcerer Mages. Besides, their HP is far too low for Mages to be effective - their high firepower is wasted on Goblins.
  • Because goblins are numerous and easy to defeat, placing more towers in the stage rather than upgrading a few towers is a good idea.
  • At times, they can appear in such overwhelming numbers that they provide a damage sponge for other enemies (wave 14 of The Citadel is a good example). Heavy artillery, and in extreme cases, a Rain of Fire should be used.

Trivia[]

  • With 24 health on veteran, goblins have the lowest HP of any enemy in the series.
