Moblins are a race of "goblins" that are found around Hyrule and other countries around it.
The Moblins are the primary muscle for Ganondorf's army. They are commonly seen taking up the role of unintellectual foot soldiers. The moblins have been around for a longtime, since Hyrule's first days. These creatures are relatives to the bulblin, bokoblin and miniblin. In the early ages, the moblins lived in wooded lands such as the Lost Woods in Hyrule.
It is revealed that some moblins are neutral and give Link and other adventurers rupees in certain caves. The moblins have been through a interesting lifetime of evolution. Still in older ages of time, the moblins began to be muscular instead of being squat. Their term for a soldier is a taurus. Later during the Ocarina of Time events, moblins guarded the Sacred Forest Meadows' maze. They also wield giant clubs there as well. Toward the more present time, moblins wield polearms and lanterns. This is when they are seen guarding the gerudo, Ganondorf's Forsaken Fortress
