(n.) A derogatory title for a large, dumb, agressive man tanned, often artifically, to a unaturally orange hue. Hobgoblins are often characterised by thier singlemindedness, reckless behavior, hedonistic tendancies, a general lack of concern for others (including fellow Hobgoblins), and egregious orange complexion.
Etymology: The term applied above, in this sense, is borrowed from a fantasy creature in the Dungeons and Dragons role-playing game. Hobgoblins are savage, cruel humanoids who take by force and are just smart enough to form groups for raiding. The fantasy Hobgoblins are identified by a coat of corse orange hair covering thier oversized bodies.
"I was having a good time at the bar until all the Hobgoblins showed up and started fist-pumping."
