The Best Goblin Slayer Quotes

Updated April 19, 2019 507 votes 111 voters 5.3k views20 items

Chances are, especially if you're a fantasy anime fan, you've heard of the ever-popular series, Goblin Slayer. A peculiar story about one man who only takes on quests to slay goblins, in a world that has so much more to offer, we follow his journey to exterminate the one monster everyone seems to turn a blind eye towards. Because of their small stature and considerable weakness individually, many adventurers consider fighting these creatures beneath them. But as the Goblin Slayer would tell you, in mass numbers these ugly green creatures can cause monumental damage. 

Some of the best quotes for this series comes from the Goblin Slayer himself. One line comes during a battle with a massive ogre where he claims how insulted he is that Goblin Slayer would ever dream to use such a high magic scroll against mere goblins. In reply, he blankly says, "Goblins... Are far more troublesome than you." Did we mention this is right before the final blow? There are also very vague, creepy lines from the ethereal Sword Maiden when she warns the Priestess about Goblin Slayer, "But someday... I'm sure he will disappear." 

We have plenty of amazing quotes from this unique anime, so don't be afraid to vote up your absolute favorite lines!

    Are You Going To Kill Them?

    Priestess: Children? 

    Goblin Slayer: They multiply fast. If we had waited any longer, there'd be about fifty of them, and they would've attacked. You were lucky. 

    Priestess: Are you going to kill them? 

    Goblin Slayer: Of course I am. They hold on to grudges for life. And the survivors of the nest learn from their mistakes and adapt. There isn't a single reason to let them live. 

    Priestess: Even if there was a good goblin? 

    Goblin Slayer: A good goblin? I guess there might be one if you looked really hard. But in the end, the only good goblins are the ones who never come out of their holes.

      I Thought If I Took A Step, The Ground Would Open Up Beneath Me, And I Would Die.

      Goblin Slayer: When I was young... 

      Priestess: What? 

      Goblin Slayer: I thought if I took a step, the ground would open up beneath me, and I would die. 

      Priestess: Huh? 

      Goblin Slayer: There was a time when I hesitated to even walk because of that. It's not impossible, but no one worries about that. That was really strange to me. She and my sister laughed at me for it, but it took time for me to realize that I still have to walk, no matter how scared I am. 

      Priestess: Is that how it is? 

      Goblin Slayer: It is. Even now, I'm scared to death. I'm thankful that you're helping me, but you're not required to help. 

      Priestess: I told you I was going to do what I wanted to do. 

      Goblin Slayer: Did you? 

      Priestess: I did. You really are hopeless, you know that? 

      Goblin Slayer: Sorry.

        Yes, If Your Home Was Suddenly Attacked By Monsters One Day.

        "Think about how it would feel if your home was suddenly attacked by monsters... Yes, if your home was suddenly attacked by monsters one day. They act as though they own the place and kill your friends, kill your family, and plunder the rest of the village. Another example would be if your older sister was attacked, tormented, made a plaything, then killed... Let's say that you witnessed all of this, from start to finish, in hiding as you held your breath... There's no way you'd forgive them."

          That Sort Of Thing Doesn't Bother Him.

          Guild Girl: How to slay giant rats... I'm afraid it's not that simple. I mean, we're asking adventurers for help because they're difficult to deal with... 

          Rookie Warrior: Isn't there anything you can do?

          Apprentice Cleric: Anything would be great! Please! 

          Guild Girl: This is pretty simple, but why not boost your defense with chain mail or something? 

          Rookie Warrior: We don't have any money.

          Guild Girl: In that case, it's probably best to ask for help with adventures from another adventurer. *Indicates Goblin Slayer* 

          Rookie Warrior: G-Goblin Slayer? 

          Guild Girl: What's wrong? 

          Rookie Warrior: Oh, um, it's just... 

          Apprentice Cleric: Um... We were kind of rude to him before. 

          Guild Girl: Oh, don't worry. That sort of thing doesn't bother him. 

          Apprentice Cleric: You think so? 

          Guild Girl: Yes, I guarantee it.
