Goblins from the Movie Series

Goblins
, also known as Gongs, were the Orcs of the Hills, an archaic breed of Orc seen by some scholars as "proto-orcs".

The term Goblin usually referred to the smaller Gongs while the greater Gongs were known as Hobgoblins.

Most lesser orcs or Snagas of the later Ages descended from the Gongs, while the great Gongs of the First Age were filled with Morgoth's will and were unable to survive without their master. The Greater Orcs of Barad dûr who fought for Sauron at the Battle of the Gladden Fields, however, were filled with Sauron's will, as the Gongs were filled with Morgoth's will, so one breed of Hobgoblin may have survived as servants of Sauron. The Greater Orcs who appeared before the breeding of the Uruk-Hai may have - at least partially - been descendants of these Hobgoblins.

In Eriador Goblins were also known as Bogies, Boggarts and, especially among the Hobbits, Boggles.
