The Golden gnome is a pet awarded to the winners of the Golden Gnome Awards at RuneFest events, in addition to a Golden gnome hat.

Like most pets, the gnome can be talked to. For its owner, the gnome will tell some gnome-related jokes, or talk about the achievement of winning it. For other players, the gnome will represent the owner and the category won, explaining that their owner won it at RuneFest.

If a player dies outside Wilderness with the Golden Gnome summoned, it won't disappear and will go with the player to the Death's office.


The name of the gnome varies, as the pet name is displayed as the category for which the gnome was won. The known names are shown below divided per year.

  • A golden gnome can be found submerged in sand on the RuneFest Treasure Island.
  • 2 players currently own a Golden Gnome pet that didn't actually win it. One is Alexander.
