These large, bipedal monsters defy description. With their very short legs they tend to move rather slowly, but their abnormally long arms allow for a reach envied by monks across Vana'diel. While they often appear to be peacefully standing and guarding their surroundings, when provoked, they can attack with considerable strength. Indeed, a look inside their mouth at what must be hundreds of shark-like teeth reveals their true intent - to consume sufficient quantities of nourishment to sustain their massive bulk. An angered Goobbue can attack with not only highly damaging direct physical damage, but can also excrete a mist which both reeks and wreaks havoc with mages. As if that were not enough, those daring enough to look a Goobbue in the eyes may find themselves temporarily paralyzed with fear.

Rewards for defeating a Goobbue can be lucrative. Tree Cuttings, which can be hard to come by elsewhere in Vana'diel, are highly prized by Gardeners everywhere, and Boyahda Moss is in a near constant state of demand by Melyon.
