When I google it, it finds me Dobby and a Goblin but that doesn't seem to answer my question.

On the Harry Potter Wiki it talks about the

"The Gremlins were Hogwarts’ current group of mischief makers and rascals, reminiscent of the Marauders"

What are Gremlins?

    Well, you've got me confused as well, because I don't know what you're asking... because it sounds like you're asking about creatures (which Dobby and Goblins are not gremlins, I don't think the word is ever used for a critter), and the article you're talking about young wizards. – Radhil Sep 17 '17 at 23:05
  • This is a gremlin, by the way. – Carpe CM Sep 18 '17 at 16:19
  • I felt my answer was pretty convincing. Is there anything else you'd want me to address before considering an acceptance? – Valorum Sep 22 '17 at 11:14

I believe your confusion stems from the use of the term gremlin as part of the James Potter fan fiction books where it's used to describe a group of student troublemakers.

Hogwarts’ current group of mischief makers and rascals, reminiscent of the Marauders; regarded as “scoundrels with honor” by Merlin. Known members include:

Ted Lupin (leader)
Noah Metzker
Petra Morganstern
Sabrina Hildegard
Damian Damascus
James S. Potter

The term "gremlin" features in none of the canon books or any of the supplementary materials.
