GOLB is a malevolent deity who inhabits an unknown dimension.
He is mentioned later in "You Forgot Your Floaties". While inside Magic Man's mind, Betty witnesses a memory of him and Grob Gob Glob Grod discussing GOLB at an unknown date in the past. It is revealed that GOLB attacked Mars at some point and "took" Magic Man's wife, Margles. Grob Gob Glob Grod believes that GOLB will return and Magic Man agrees, using the threat of GOLB as a pretext for building a security system on Mars that takes the shape of Margles. Later, Magic Man changes his mind, claiming that Grob Gob Glob Grod is wrong and GOLB is "probably not coming back."
GOLB has a massive, muscular red body and a cubic head topped with a pyramid. He has four yellow eyes with green pupils. His tongue is large and purple. His hands have two fingers and his feet have two toes. He has orange-yellow talons on his fingers and toes.
After GOLB "took" Margles, Magic Man traveled to Prismo's Time Room and wished that she would return but Prismo was unable to successfully bring her back. This shows that GOLB has powers greater than those of a Wish Master (or that Magic Man's wish wasn't specific enough).
This also suggests that GOLB is a deity that has the ability to end existence, which explains why even Prismo can't get Margles back. Since GOLB's attack, the only remnants of Margles are within Magic Man's memory. This ability may also have been the reason why Finn's pillow life in "Puhoy" was completely terminated.
