He is portrayed as a xenophobic, ugly and abusive goblin of high-rank who is doted upon by his fearsome mother and takes great pride in being reprehensible: he also expresses a desire to force sun people (what goblins call humans because [they] need the sun) underground, hoping that in time they too would develop the ugly features of goblins.
Despite his great ugliness, he (like most goblins) viewed humans as extremely grotesque.
Prince Froglip also had the tendency to lisp and spit a lot when he talked - this was used as a type of comedy in the movie and he was also prone to overly dramatic gestures and clothing.
At the end, while (the deuteragonist) and Irene (the protagonist) are on a rock during a flood, Froglip comes back to get Irene (again), causing a fight between him and Curdie. Meanwhile, Irene punches his foot (goblins' feet are the only place that can get hurt), and Curdie kicks him off the rock while he is losing his balance, and Froglip falls to his presumed death.
He was voiced by the late Rik Mayall.
