B Mr Grimm 2.jpg

Mr. Grimm was drafted unto the war when he was only 18 years old, alongside his best friend Benny. They both had just finished high school and were unprepared for what lied in the Vietnam Jungles. They were outnumbered and outclassed and soon their platoons quickly fell. They knew their time would soon be there and they swore to always watch one another back.

[edit] Character Profile

Mr. Grimm and his friend , Benny, were drafted into the army and shipped to Vietnam in 1971. During a fight, Benny was severely wounded. While Grimm tried to help his friend, they were found by a Vietnamese soldier and captured, being tossed into a 25-foot pit. An advisor to the Vietnamese kept them locked there, taking pleasure in watching the men starve. The advisor told Grimm that if he wanted to survive, he needed to eat. Grimm understood what the advisor was implying: he wanted to see Grimm cannibalize his dying friend, and dropped a knife in the hole so Grimm could do the deed. After a week of being in the pit with no food and untreated bullet wounds, Benny died. Grimm was finally forced to cave in and eat his dead friend, believing Ben would have understood his choice. As a sort of deranged memento, he took Ben's skull and wore it as a helmet. Two weeks later, he was rescued. However, when a few of the GIs attempted to remove his helmet; Grimm killed four of them in retaliation before he was finally subdued. He was sent back to America and placed in Blackfield Asylum.

Thirty years later, Calypso visited him, giving him the chance to take revenge on the "man who stole [his] sanity" by entering his contest.

[edit] Twisted Metal: Head-On

Mr. Grimm appears in Twisted Metal: Head-On because he wants to give someone else the chance to be the Grim Reaper. It is also revealed that Mr. Grimm was 26 years old when he died.

[edit] Character Profile

Mr. Grimm is, in fact, the Grim Reaper himself. At some point during his centuries of work, he attempted to devour a soul instead of taking it to its next destination. He then became hooked, so he needed to devour more and more souls. He soon found himself absorbing more souls than he was delivering. This craving drove Mr. Grimm to the point of insanity. Now, realizing he can't take it anymore, Mr. Grimm enters Twisted Metal hoping that Calypso can give someone else the job of being the Grim Reaper.

[edit] Special Weapon

The Screaming Soul is when Mr. Grimm launches a flaming skull at his opponent. It only fires straight so use wisely.

[edit] Ending

Mr. Grimm was tired of being the Grim Reaper and having to collect souls, knowing that the hunger burns him. He wishes that he wasn't the Grimm Reaper anymore and that someone else would while he can live a human life.

Calypso would grant the wish by turning him into his 26 year old self once more, while turning a little girl into the Grim Reaper. Happy to be alive, Grimm would run into the street blindly and get hit by an oncoming truck. The new Grim Reaper would come to collect his soul.
