Gremlins are a kind of monster originating from Britain "neo-mythology", having been concocted by members of the British Royal Air Force within the 1920s as a goblin-like creature that loves mechanical devices and tinkering - or, more accurately, breaking things, especially to get people hurt.

Gremlins most commonly appear in dieselpunk or urban fantasy settings, where their status as magical creatures that love to meddle with machines makes most sense. In more fantasy settings, like Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder, they are typically portrayed as a particularly nasty goblin or faerie creature with a particular knack for traps.
