King Rufus is the King of the Gobbo Archipelago and leader of the Gobbos. He is also the one who introduced Croc to Beany the Bird.


King Rufus appears just like any other Gobbo: two small brown balls of fluff with feet, tiny hands, a long tail with a black tuft at the end and big blue eyes. The only difference is that he wears a crown upon his head. In some promotional artwork, he also dons a royal red cape.


King Rufus is shown to be a kind and caring leader, who takes in Croc himself, and builds a statue of his adopted son when he saves them from Baron Dante.

But in Croc Mobile: Volcanic Panic!, he is shown to be unsympathetic towards Croc, not caring that he might be hurt or even bothering to tell him that he is getting wed. Since these games were not created by Argonaut though, it's possible that this is not canon, since it does not match up with what we had seen previously from him.

King Rufus is the single most powerful Gobbo in the Gobbo Archipelago. It was he that rescued Croc and raised him as his own, making King Rufus Croc's adoptive father. Therefore, very loosely, he is the one that saved the Gobbos from Baron Dante.

Due to his status amongst the Gobbos, it was he that Baron Dante captured and locked up in his castle during the Invasion of Gobbo Valley. He had no choice but to place his faith in his adopted son, waiting for him to save him.

In Croc Mobile: Volcanic Panic! King Rufus was set to marry Princess Tara. However, Baron Dante showed up again and the wedding had to be put on hold while Croc saved her and several other Gobbos from Baron Dante.
