Goblin Slayer (ゴブリンスレイヤー)
The series' main character, an experienced silver ranked adventurer who only concerns himself with hunting goblins. The jobs he takes only involve goblins and takes no others. His appearance is not as glamorous or elegant due to using equipment that would seem lacking for an adventurer of his rank.
His style of combat favors more on pragmatism such as setting traps, using their own weapon against the user, and taking whatever advantage that may come. He even uses his own imagination of using a protection spell in order to kill all the goblins in a burning Elven fortress. The most defining trait of his is the hatred of goblins that fuels him and his actions. The reason behind this is how his family, which consisted of his parents and sister, and village were massacred by goblins and made a vendetta against all goblins everywhere.
