- This article is about the cactus-like enemy from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and should not be confused with Gobchomplin.
Gobblin is an enemy found in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, first encountered in Stage 1 of Rock Star. It is mostly invulnerable, and serves as a stage hazard. However, Kirby can defeat it by inhaling its head when it lunges into the foreground. Its English name is a pun on "goblin" and "gobbling".
Gobblin resembles a cactus, with a thorny body and a head like an alligator. It sits in place and wobbles about, waiting for Kirby to approach. Then it will lurch into the foreground and attempt to bite Kirby.
Gobblin can be found in the following levels and stages:
