The Golden gnome is a pet awarded to the winners of the Golden Gnome Awards at RuneFest events, in addition to a Golden gnome hat. The item name when following its owner will differ depending on what award was won.

Its dialogue will only appear to the owner. It will tell some gnome-related jokes, or talk about the achievement of winning it.

The pet is manually added to a player's account by a Jagex Moderator. If a player dies outside Wilderness with the Golden Gnome summoned, it won't disappear and will go with the player to the Death's office.

Names[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Submerged Golden Gnome.png
The 2013 Golden Gnome, which the pet is modelled after.
  • The golden gnome looks identical to the real-life version awarded in 2013.
  • There exist multiple gnomes for those who won them as a group.
  • Some players own the pet despite not winning an award due to charity auctions or being given away by the winner.
  • The clan who won a golden gnome have a gnome statue dedicated to their clan in the Clan Camp. This gnome is known as "Top Ranking Clan".
  • A golden gnome can be found submerged in sand on the RuneFest Treasure Island.
  • Before an unknown update, if dismissed, the pet could not be recovered, unless added back to the player's account by a Jagex Moderator.
