Apparently, newborn goblins are weak enough to be easily killed by Horn rabbits, and because of this, nuts were the staple food which most of them ate in order to survive, or so I’m told by Gobumi-chan. You see, Gobumi-chan is another goblin from our generation, and although she had “beauty” in her name, it’s a pity that she wasn’t that beautiful. All the Goblins had the same ugly face, there is only a small difference that allows you to differentiate between them. Me? I’m no exception. I confirmed this while washing my body in a nearby river.
Well, according to Gobumi-chan, the other goblins couldn’t compare to my good looks. To be honest I didn't feel happy the least bit hearing that I was handsome. No matter how handsome a goblin is compared to his fellow goblins; in the end, all goblins are ugly.
I stared into the distance absentmindedly for a moment.
Going back to the story, goblins are fundamentally weak by nature. Therefore only individuals with wisdom and luck can survive. Only the selected few with this degree of capability are capable of surviving. Tough indeed.
After hearing that, I thought, “Eh? Seriously?” though the words flowed out of my mouth. After all, average-sized Horn rabbits are only a bit bigger than the Japanese rabbit. Moreover, apart from its size, the Horn rabbit makes efficient use of its two legs to execute an overhead attack to kill goblins…. Oh, I suppose that it’s possible.
They don't even use wooden sticks, so beating and kicking is the only way they know to attack. Fighting bare-handed will certainly get you killed.
The horn of the Horn rabbit is a weapon. Only idiots will fight it upfront while being unarmed. Having a small body may also be a reason. The horn will pierce from below and towards the abdomen.
However, I just saw some goblins imitating me and Gobukichi-kun, holding wooden sticks in their hands.
