Clang Goblings[1], (A.K.A. Odd Little Armored Imps), are green Goblings and recurring enemies in Conker's Bad Fur Day and Conker: Live & Reloaded. They wear round armor that allows them to retreat into their armor and curl up like a ball. Their armor also has the feature of protruding spikes from within as the Gobling curls up, which acts as a defense mechanism.

In the original Nintendo 64 version of the game, Clang Goblings appeared as set dressing to block off areas and prevent the player from sequence breaking or going out of bounds (in lieu of an invisible wall, which were common during the era). They could not be defeated by normal means, though ones that specifically gated off future areas of the game could be removed or killed by way of certain scripted sequences (e.g. opening up a drain in a body of water they're guarding, causing them to get flushed out).

In the Xbox version, Clang Goblings were made smaller and turned into regular enemies that patrol the game's overworlds which could now be defeated by the player. The invincible Clang Goblings from the previous game were replaced by "Black" Clang Goblings, which were larger than their common variants, garbed in black iron armor, and retained their invincibility.


In Conker's Bad Fur Day, the Clang Goblings appear on the lake heading to Bat's Tower. Two are swimming around the lake and the other is protecting the button which, when activated, causes a whirlpool. Conker must throw the Pooball at the one protecting the button. Then, the other two go into the whirlpool. Some appear in the top of Bat's Tower. While others appear when Conker is swimming in the vault in Bat's Tower at the Wheel, and two of them swim in an area where Conker comes to catch one of the Lady Cogs and these two later appear in the waters when he is escorting the Catfish to the safe. One last Clang Gobling appears after Conker defeats the Big Big Guy and rolls one of his balls at him.

In Conker: Live & Reloaded, they are seen in multiple chapters throughout the game and can be killed. Among these chapters (besides Bat's Tower) are Hungover, Windy, Barn Boys, Sloprano and Uga Buga. Also additionally appearing in the Poo Cabin and five of them appear inside the Wasp Hive.
