Major Gobler is the quaternary antagonist in Raiders of the Lost Ark. He was played by Anthony Higgins.


Gobler was a Nazi officer and personal aide to Colonel Dietrich at the dig in Tanis. He spent most of his time silently following Dietrich around wherever he went. During the Nazis' attempt to transport the Ark of the Covenant to Cairo, Gobler drove the rear escort vehicle. He was killed when Indiana Jones hijacked the truck carrying the Ark, then forced Gobler's car off the road and right over a cliff.
