Ma Goblins are spawn from Goblins to act as reinforcement. Like their brethren, they can use their axe for melee attack and their boomerang for ranged targets. Ma Goblins can also strengthen themselves and their team by boosting their physical defense. Up to two can be summoned by a Goblin, making them a threat that can gang up on one character.

In the mobile version, Ma Goblins seem to me more agile and move faster than their previous introduction.

In Secret of Mana HD, their agility and speed drop dramatically to match their weaker Kid Goblin cousin.
