Goblins are large Great Orcs, Uruks. They are sometimes fat or not, short or tall, gluttonous and with a pale yellow orange or a grey green. They inhabited the Misty Mountains and were known to tame Wargs and were know to be the engineers atop the siege beasts. They were used as common as the normal Uruks but were known to be good at making weapons of war. They experimented with fire and chemicals with results as blasting powder or projectiles thrown from Siege Graugs' catapults. For their devastating minds they were kept as the best in Sauron's Army. The Dark Lord Sauron valued their technology and power so he used some as soldiers or guards, some as sappers, some for riding Siege Beasts and some as archers.
The Goblins that reside in Mordor have white, pale yellow or pale orange skin and range in size from smaller than the Uruk Warriors to as big as the Uruk Savages. They wield axes, scimitars, spears and knives.
- Goblins were supposed to appear in the first game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor but for unknown reasons were left out along the Trolls. The two however premiere in the Shadow of War. The Goblins seen so far appear to be based on the High Pass goblins from Unexpected Journey or the huge Guldur Moria Goblins seen in the Battle of the Five Armies and Desolation of Smaug led by Azog the Defiler but smaller in size.
