Orcobal

"there are Tolkien's latest thoughts, his best thoughts, and his published thoughts and these are not necessarily the same." — Tolkien's Legendarium
This article is non-canon.

Orcobal was the chief champion of the orcs 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.
