General Bentnoze is one of the Goblin generals who has a liking for the colour red. He is found in the Goblin Village, which is near Falador and directly north of Doric's Anvils. Bentnoze is very rarely seen without his rival and co-general, General Wartface, with whom he consistently argues with concerning issues from armour colours to what to eat. Bentnoze's favoured sergeant is Sergeant Mossfists.

Bentnoze, along with Wartface, constantly picks on Grubfoot, a small goblin inside the general's huts. Despite this, the generals are notably peaceful, for Goblins; they rarely fight against other races, aside from the Dwarves. The generals were originally from different tribes, namely the Thorobshuun and Garagorshuun tribes. This is possibly why they do not agree on many issues.

General Bentnoze could be found at the Heimland Games area during the 2010 Christmas event, arguing with General Wartface over the correct colour of the Christmas tree fire and the seals.

History[edit | edit source]

Armour Issues[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Goblin Diplomacy.

In year 169 of the Fifth Age, Bentnoze and Wartface were on the brink of war with each other after they were unable to decide what armour to wear for the turn of the goblin new century. Bentnoze wanted the goblins to wear red armour, while Wartface wanted the goblins to wear green armour. Coincidentally, half of the goblins wore red, and the other half wore green and began fighting each other outside.

An adventurer, who stumbled into the bizarre village, found the two generals arguing. Although they tried to dismiss them, the adventurer offered to help them out with their problem, and the generals agreed, believing that an outside party could help them decide. They requested they bring them orange goblin armour; once the adventurer returned, both generals forced their servant, Grubfoot, to wear it. After seeing the orange armour, both generals were not satisfied and requested that they bring blue armour, though they disliked it even more. They then requested brown (normal) goblin armour, and both agreed to use brown armour.

Another Visit[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during The Lost Tribe.

Investigating the caves underneath Lumbridge castle, the adventurer discovered a brooch dropped by what was suspected to be a goblin. The adventurer brought it to Reldo, and found a book detailing the twelve goblin tribes. Recalling the goblin generals they had helped earlier, they paid another visit to the generals and asked them about the Dorgeshuun.

The generals were unsure with what happened to the Dorgeshuun, with Bentnoze believing that they were sent to fight the "tall people" (humans), and Wartface believed they were "beardy-short people" (dwarves). Regardless, the adventurer showed them the brooch, and both generals agreed that goblins never wore jewelry. After realising the Dorgeshuun did not know who won the wars, Bentnoze taught the adventurer the Goblin Salute dance, believing that the Dorgeshuun should know who won the wars.

Lumbridge Secret Council[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Recipe for Disaster.

He, along with Bentnoze, represents goblinkind on the Secret Council of RuneScape, though as usual they fight each other over who gets to sit in the chair. He is present when the Culinaromancer is freed during Recipe for Disaster and is subsequently frozen in time. In order to save them, they must be served slop of compromise, a mixture of food liked by both generals.

Rescuing Zanik[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Another Slice of H.A.M..

The Dorgeshuun began construction with the dwarves with a rail system intended to unite the cities of Dorgesh-Kaan and Keldagrim together. While the tunnel was being constructed, the Dorgeshuun found various artefacts inside, temporarily halting construction. The adventurer assisted the Dorgeshuun in the excavation efforts, and found an ancient mace. The Dorgeshuun were unable to decipher the text due to their complex system, and the local scribe recalled the adventurer had spoken to some surface goblins before, and asked them to bring it to them so they could examine it.

The adventurer then brought the mace to the generals, who were surprised the Dorgeshuun were able to find one. Bentnoze stated that the mace was a powerful weapon which could remove the favour of a god protecting their enemy. Bentnoze was disgusted with the beliefs of the Dorgeshuun, accusing Zanik of being a human for not believing in the Big High War God. Grubfoot stated that she was the Chosen Commander, prompting Bentnoze to order him to shut up. He believed that Zanik was not the Chosen Commander due to her lack of faith to the Big High War God, but Wartface reminded him that the Big High War God would punish them if Grubfoot was telling the truth.

Zanik attempted to speak to the goblins, but was jeered at due to her vastly different beliefs from them. H.A.M. agents then began killing the goblin crowd, forcing the goblins to scatter. When the adventurer dispatched the agents on the watchtower, Sigmund had captured Zanik and intended to have her killed by the rail system so the dwarves and Dorgeshuun would declare war on each other. Bentnoze offered Sergeant Mossfists to help the adventurer, while Wartface offered Sergeant Slimetoes; the two generals began arguing over who was better, prompting the adventurer to take both with them; the rescue was ultimately a success.

Losing their Servant[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during The Chosen Commander.

Eventually, Bentnoze and Wartface lost their servant Grubfoot, who was sick of their abuse and traveled to Dorgesh-Kaan to become Oldak's student. This saddened the two generals, as they no longer had anyone to order around.

The Kyzaj Tournament[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during The Mighty Fall.

Following Bandos' death, Bentnoze and Wartface traveled with the larger Bandosian group intending to kill the Dorgeshuun for their role in Bandos' death. The two generals served as spectators for the adventurer's fights.

If Yelps was spared, then the two goblin generals were given a new servant to order around.

General Bentnoze argues with General Wartface over a chair.

Ranch Out of Time[edit | edit source]

General Bentnoze may occasionally appear at the Ranch Out of Time on Anachronia. He may be sold brutish dinosaurs in exchange for beans. As a large-sized animal buyer, he will appear or renew his order for brutish dinosaurs every three days and purchase up to 6 animals before leaving, unless the player is at least 'Senior Master Farmer' rank in the farming reputation system; then he will buy up to 12.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 13 January 2020 (Update):
    • The Makeover Mage took a day trip to Anachronia Farm and decided to give General Bentnoze a makeover. Bentnoze no longer uses his Old School model, and has been replaced with a more up to date model.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • He was one of the guests of the Queen of Snow, during the 2009 Christmas event.
  • In the 2009 Christmas event, if General Bentnoze was freed after General Wartface, he asked the character "Why you save Wartface?" If it was the other way around (Wartface was freed after Bentnoze), Wartface would ask the same thing.
  • He and General Bentnoze are Professor Tony's resident experts on goblin culture.[1]
  • He is included in task 3 of the extension capers to the quest What's Mine is Yours and offers the player "useless junk" in return for a completed order of 5 iron warhammers and 5 longswords. This turns out to be an old book that adds charges to the gofannon amulet.
