Hobgoblin Chiefs, called Hobgoblins on the mobile version, are huge, heavily armored goblin-like creatures wielding a massive bloody sword. They serve as mini-bosses in the Rage Valley Endless stage in Kingdom Rush. They have no encyclopedia entry. 


One Hobgoblin Chief is spawned every tenth wave of the level. As a mini-boss, they are functionally identical to giant enemies and have an area attack, but possess the stats on par with true bosses, are immune to instant kills and most afflictions, and take away 20 lives if leaked.


  • Block them with Barrack soldiers and pound them with excessive firepower. Soon it will be strong enough to overrun all of the player's defenses, but until then, a player should try their best. 
  • Its health and damage rapidly rise with each appearance, reaching hundreds of damage and over 20,000 life. Combine with the Totems, especially the Healing Totem and Speed Totem, it pose a great threat if not countered well.
  • Use heroes that have very heavy armor, like Gerald Lightseeker and Hacksaw. They can stall them for a long period of time, but not for long starting at wave 50.
  • Hobgoblin Chief seems easy to kill at first, but extremely hard, especially past wave 30. They can end up stronger than bosses, which is more likely for a player to concentrate them before they escape. Even health could be the problem, because at wave 50 and onward, he has even more health than Sarelgaz, which has 18000 HP. Also, be aware of their damage because they kill soldiers in seconds.
  • Rain of Fire is useful against them during wave 10, 20, 30, and perhaps, 40. Starting wave 50, Rain of Fire does almost nothing against them.

Hobgoblin Chief can deal up to 200-450 damage, have 1000 bounty at most, and infinite health.
