Ecthelion slays Orcobal by Tom Loback

Orcobal was the chief champion of the Goblins present at the Fall of Gondolin. He was slain by Ecthelion of the Fountain, who "cleft the head of Orcobal [...] to his teeth" before the gates of Gondolin.[1]

He only appears in Tolkien's early "The Fall of Gondolin".
