Goblin Island is an island in Final Fantasy VII. It is a large island covered in forests, located on the edge of the world's eastern hemisphere.

Native to the land are the Goblins, a race of fighters who dwell in the forests. From them, the player can obtain the Zeio Nut, a crucial item in advanced chocobo breeding. Goblins also teach the enemy skill Goblin Punch.

The BradyGames guide does not call the island Goblin Island, but the forest Goblin Forest. This is due to Goblin enemies only being fought in forests, with other enemies being fought on other terrain.

Goblin Island is thus named as it is inhabited by goblins. 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.
