Valheim Wiki

Fulings are aggressive creatures found in Plains, especially within Fuling villages. They resemble small, goblin-like beings that appear to possess their own tribalistic culture. It is implied through runestones and totems that they worship Yagluth, a long dead king.

Attacks and abilities[]

For strategies for defeating Fulings, see Aggressive creature strategies § Fuling.



  • Fulings have unusually sharp hearing and will be able to detect the player from a much longer distance than other enemies. Chopping down trees or mining ore is likely to attract their attention.
  • Fulings are relatively noisy. The distinctive sound of their chatter or laughter will often be the first sign that they are active in an area.
  • Fulings are extremely fast and agile, but they sometimes fail to register the edge of a player-dug ditch until it is too late to avoid falling in.
  • Fulings are particularly slow swimmers. Adventurers may use this to their advantage, for instance, by jumping over a river (natural or player-made) while firing arrows at their now slow targets.
  • While most creatures in Valheim take inspiration from counterparts in Norse mythology, the Fuling seem to be an exception. The closest parallel would be the Goblin, more traditionally used in fantasy works since their popularization within the Dungeons & Dragons setting. This is further indicated by them being named "Goblin" in the game files.
  • "Fuling" can be roughly translated into "ugly one" in modern Swedish.
