Goblin thieves aren't very good at their job. They can't even steal from an unlocked chest!

The Goblin Tinkerer

The Goblin Thief is an enemy that spawns during the Goblin Army event. It follows the typical Fighter AI but moves at a higher speed than similar enemies. Approximately one out of every four goblins will be a Thief (23.7% chance to spawn).

Goblin Thieves are between the Goblin Peon and the Goblin Warrior in terms of difficulty. They can jump quite high and can open Tall Gates(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) faster than other fighters. Uniquely, they destroy doors instead of just opening them.


  • Despite being called thieves, they never steal anything (except for dropped money in Expert Mode(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions)). This is referenced by one of the Goblin Tinkerer's quotes.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Goblin Thief: "Quick strike units of the Goblin Army, these pesky foes specialize in nimble movement and close-quarters combat."
