Goons are one-eyed, two-legged robotic guards that serve the Cogs. They project a searchlight out of their eye, which causes damage to a Toon if stepped in. They can be stunned by jumping on their helmets; however, they are reactivated after four seconds plus an additional one and a half seconds to resume before they are able to cause damage.

They only appear in the Cog headquarters, in which most of them appear in facilities such as the Sellbot Factory, Cashbot Mints, and the District Attorney's Office.

They also appear in the Chief Financial Officer boss battle. When battling the C.F.O. in the Cashbot Vault, goons walk out of his undercarriage. The color of the goon is dependent on the color of the C.F.O.'s health meter, with the damage of their searchlight also increasing throughout the battle. If a goon is stunned during the battle, they may produce a treasure depending on the size of the goon. There can be a maximum of between 8 to 16 goons which is dependent on the health of the C.F.O., more goons appear when the C.F.O.'s health is green.


There are several variants of goons. Most of them are exclusively seen in the Cashbot Vault.

Chief Financial Officer boss battle

"Once his helmet is gone, grab a disabled goon and hit him in the head!"
Mata Hairy, during the Chief Financial Officer boss battle.

If a goon is stunned, they may produce a treasure. The treasure produced is dependent on the damage of the goon's spotlight. The goons that produce treasure are only found during the crane round of the C.F.O. battle.

Series 4
No Cog is truly in charge without a team of Goons to do their dirty work. These Goons may look harmless, but any Toon who falls within their security beam will trigger an alarm that is sure to send them back to the Playground.

Luckily for the Toons, Goons are hard-headed Cogs who can hardly take a stomp without having to re-calibrate.

Who knows what causes their beam to create so much sadness, but one thing is clear: Do NOT look them in the eye!

  • Canonically, the Cogs stole the goons' design from Doctor Surlee's camera bots that were invented to livestream the Toon Council Presidential Elections.
  • Mini goons can be disabled by walking onto them, unlike other goons which require you to jump.
  • Giant goons are tough to disable; they can only be disabled if jumped onto from a high surface.
  • Huge goons are able to cause the most damage to a Toon at once by a maximum of 30 damage, which is stronger than any Cog attack. This also makes them stronger than even giant goons.
  • There are a few enormous goons in the District Attorney's Office that are not functional. These goons have dark orange hats, unlike any other goon, and their bodies are red colored; their unusual colors may be due to rust.
  • During Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters, two huge goons temporarily guarded the entrance to the Cashbot Vault.
