Character Poll 4: Do You Like Mr. Grimm?

I am polling this board on their approval of each character to determine how popular they are. In this case, do you like TMB's Mr. Grimm? Explain.

It really depends on the portrayal of him as it does vary from game to game. For instance, I am a huge fan of TM4's interpretation of Grimm thanks to life-like characteristics, immersive, in depth backstory, and relatibility.  Though in TMB and TMPS3 he's really boring.

Since this is the Twisted Metal: Black board, I asked if you liked the Black incarnation of Mr. Grimm.

For the most part, yeah. Although I found it strange that he managed to fit his friend's skull on his head to use as a helmet.

Hold up, did you say that TM4 Grimm had an immersive, in-depth story?  Grin

Yes. TM4's portrayal of Grimm was life-like, upon the end of each level I felt closer to his character and his struggle. I bonded with him. Never have I felt my heart sink so deep as when I first saw the lifeless body of his bird, covered in blood.


I really do think his story is worthy of at the very least a Grammy award and I hope his story is passed on for the generations to come.

RIP Parrot Grimm ...

But seriously, isn't it odd how 989 made both SweetTooth and Mr. Grimm mutes? what was 989 smoking?

And I'm a little confused about the Captain Grimm ending. Did the bird's soul go to SweetTooth? Since when does SweetTooth collect souls? What is he, Shang Tsung all of a sudden?

I will say Captain Grimm's ending is by far the most graphic ending of TM4 - sure was a lot of blood for a little bird. I like birds myself, I feed the ones near my house regularly, and I know what a sad sight it is to see a dead one...but Captain Grimm could still have killed SweetTooth, it's not like he needs permission - then claimed SweetTooth's soul, which by extension, would retrieve his pet bird's soul back to Grimm.

This discussion is nice and all, but I posted this topic to ask you if you liked the Black incarnation of Mr. Grimm. I don't even think this website accepts TM3 and 4 as part of the official series. Even the Twisted Metal brainchilds agree that they are not canon.

I was one of the TMA originals who agreed that TMIII and TM4 weren't "canon" and enforced that rule for years, and also signed a petition way back in the day to get TM out of 989's hands. That being said, we are past the time in which it needs to be said that those games don't count, it's already well established, and we're free to discuss them. Currently, Twisted Metal is in a coma, so any kind of discussion about any of the games, canon or not, should be encouraged.

As for TMB Mr. Grimm - of course I liked the character. His story was well told, and his Vietnam experience was bad as anything I saw in Full Metal Jacket. The ending felt a bit censored though. The design of the skull helmet was very unique for the character, although this was the first human incarnation of Mr. Grimm, and I'm not sure in retrospect I agree with the idea of humanizing Mr. Grimm. I still think TM2 has the best Mr. Grimm.

Twisted metal Black Grimm is my favorite Grimm of the series.

A vet, wearing his best friend on a fast motorcycle with a fun to use special? what's not to love?
