I won't save the world. I just kill goblins.
~ Goblin Slayer.
Maybe. If you looked hard, you might be able to find one. But in the end, the only good goblins are the ones who never show their faces to the light of day.
~ Goblin Slayer his thoughts about a good goblin.

Goblin Slayer is the titular protagonist of the light novel, anime, and manga series of the same name. He is an adventurer who, as his name applies, specializes in slaying goblins.

He is voiced by Yuuichirou Umehara in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Brad Hawkins in the English version.


Goblin Slayer was once an ordinary boy in a village. One day, his best friend left to work on a farm for a few days, and the two fought because he couldn't go with her. Later that night, his village was attacked by goblins and everyone he knew was killed. 

He hid in his house's basement until nightfall. He sneaked out of the house, seeing all of the corpses, but was attacked by the goblins who hadn't left yet. He was saved from death by a rhea; they spent 5 years together before parting ways.

After parting ways, he made his way to town and walked past his childhood friend, although he did not speak to her. Upon entering the Adventurer's Guild, he meets the receptionist and requests to register as an adventurer. As Guild Girl searches for the registration sheets clumsily, he picks up a fallen sheet that seemed to be a Goblin slaying quest. Guild Girl confirms it, and he immediately accepts the quest despite her attempts to dissuade him from going alone.

After filling in the necessary details in the adventure registration sheet, he receives his official adventurer tag and began making preparations to embark on his first goblin-slaying quest.

Goblin Slayer visited Smith's shop and ordered a breastplate and a helmet.

Goblin Slayer arrived at a cave that had goblins living in it; He fights his way through numerous goblins, but is poisoned in the process. Upon reaching his hand into his bag to get an antidote, he discovers that the glass vial broke in the fight. Improvising, he rolls the edge of his bag moist with spilled antidote into a ball and sucked on it. Not long after, he has to fight a hobgoblin and goblins shaman. He nearly dies but is able to kill the two of them, and goes into the back of the cave to save the captive woman and kill the goblin children.
