The Goblin Chieftain is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2.


It appears with groups of Goblins, and can boost their power. However, if any Goblins remain after the Goblin Chieftain is defeated, then they can morph into a new Goblin Chieftain, so the player must choose to deal either with more Goblin Chieftains or one Goblin Chieftain boosting every other goblin. Players may find it easier to encounter during rainy weather.

A goblin is a small, mischievous creature found in many European folk tales and legends. The word "goblin" comes from the Norman French word Gobelinus, the name of a ghost that haunted the town of Évreux in the 12th century.
