Debut Information
Web Novel Debut Chapter 13
Gobuta (ゴブタ, Gobuta) is a hobgoblin and is Rimuru Tempest's follower. He is the only one of Rimuru's followers to be given the right to officially “converse in casual tone” with Rimuru which lead to intense jealousy from Shion and Shuna(two of Rimuru's greatest admirers).


Though he's considered a fool, he proves to be a very competent individual when the situation calls for it. His prowess on the battlefield surprises many.

He is an natural airhead and idiot, but has a hidden genius. As the Goblin Rider’s captain, he is actually unexpectedly brilliant.


During his journey to Dwargon, four months prior to Rimuru’s involvement, he was beaten black and blue, then he got picked up by a group of kobold merchants. If they hadn’t found him, he might have died.


Gobuta was the first to succeed in summoning a Storm Fanged Wolf.

Before evolving he was able to journey to obtain food by walking to Dwargon on foot, in demon infested territory.

According to Grucius, Gobuta is the best amongst the hobgoblins.

Despite being a lower class monster, he can win against an elite.

Unique SkillEdit


  • Union: It allows him to unite with another(example: his star wolf) and dive into the shadows. He gets a great increase in his abilities and his raw strength at least doubles.
