~ Grime, "Barrel's Warhammer"
Grimothy, better known as Captain Grime, is a main antagonist of the 2019 Disney Channel animated TV show Amphibia, serving as the main antagonist of Season 1, a major antagonist in Season 2 and a major character in the third and final season.
He reformed in the final episode of the second season and turned into a true anti-hero as the show's progresses.
He is voiced by Troy Baker, who also voiced Yamato in Naruto Shippuden (Episodes 34-229), Madarao in Kekkaishi, Excalibur in Soul Eater, Greed in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Dr. Reuben Langer in Regular Show.
Grime is a large green toad, with a more terrifying appearance compared to any other of his toad soldiers. His left eye features a slit, glowing yellow-green light while his right one is injured with a pink scar leading down to his lower jaw and he also possesses sharp, yellow teeth. He wears brown metal armor with a dark, purplish cape. He has a very large and muscular build and also wears leather shoulder padding and brown boots.
In "Toadcatcher", Grime sports a gray beard with a line in the middle, and subtle facial hair. He is also less muscular and becoming more fat than before. Since then, he has shaved and gone back to his former self along with new armor.
Grime feels he must always be respected with his discipline among his former crew of toad soldiers, and before Sasha told him that his army would respect and listen to him better if he were nicer, he was very rude and disrespectful to his army. He was likely this way because he expected them all to toughen up from his downplayed words, but it only ended up making the other toads feel weaker and worse off. Since then, he has been very respectful to his toads and continues to honor their loyalty to him, and in return, they strictly begin to follow his commands.
His frustration can still be shown at times after having become aware of the conflict and rebellion proceeding throughout Amphibia, with many villages beginning to rise up to the toads and refusing to pay up during their monthly tax collecting trips. But his confidence in restoring order has continued to lift as not only have his fellow toads' spirits brightened up, but he believes with someone as ruthless as Sasha by his side, he can succeed in his mission.
Though he has his bad side, he still respects those who aid or care for him. He holds Sasha in high esteem since she saved him from a heron, and even returned the favor by saving Sasha as she was falling from the crumbling Toad Tower even though he was risking his own life, and was clearly furious at the Plantars when she appeared injured.
In "Best Fronds", he captures Sasha and believes her to be a spy after he shows her Anne's missing shoe.
In "Prison Break", Grime checks on the Toad Army downstairs who are all goofing off and acting disruptive. He gets angered that the toads are acting childish and punches one of the walls which makes the toads cease their problematic behavior. He then tells the Toads that he is sick of their behavior and wants them to stop. Grime goes and checks up on Sasha, who is in her cell and proud of herself for getting a couple of Grime's soldiers to quit their jobs. He then is interrupted by Sasha, who is telling him that she doesn't know how she got there and that she wishes to return home. Just then, Percy is walking outside the gates of the tower which attracts two monster herons, which causes Percy to flee back to the Tower with the herons following close after.
Grime watches as one of the herons bursts into the side of the cell and Sasha screams and gets lose from the chain that held her to the wall. Grime then tells Sasha to help him fight, but is unamused as she runs right past him. He is shocked as Sasha runs back with a barrel and throws it at the heron and it flees. Grime, stunned in Sasha's ability asks how she was able to do that which she answers "cheerleading". They then travel to a bunker, where a bunch of whiney toads are scared for their life.
Grime gets frustrated but is quickly interrupted by Sasha and she takes him behind one of the flags. Grime believes he must be very respected and demanding to his army. Sasha then tells him that if he is nicer, his army would comply and listen more, as Grime is generally cruel and insulting to his army. Quite certainly that he thought using his less impressive vocabulary would toughen them up. However, this just made the other toads feel worse, and Grime has been doing his best ever since, continuing to show more regard for his soldiers' loyalty, resulting in them solely following his orders.
In "Anne of the Year",...
In "Reunion", Grime, Sasha, and the toads arrive in Wartwood, pretending to be holding a banquet for everybody. Sasha informs Anne that the toads have devised a strategy to put down a revolt that has recently surfaced. Hop Pop's actions being the cause of it, so Grime would feed him to a giant plant creature outside. Sasha starts talking down to Anne by manipulating her and convincing her to lay down her sword, but Sprig gets through to her by hitting her with a mud ball and calling her a bully. Anne eventually battles back after learning that Sasha has been using her to manipulate her. Grime is impressed and orders the two to war. They can all go home if Anne wins, but if Sasha wins, Hop Pop will be fed to the giant plant. Anne defeats Sasha in the fight, with the former emerging victorious. Grime, on the other hand, intends to throw Hop Pop off the edge, only to be interrupted by Wally's boom shrooms. Anne tries to save Sasha from the collapsing tower while everyone else evacuates, but Sasha lets herself go, admitting that she is better off without her. Grime saves her when she falls. As the toads take Sasha away and Anne cries with the Plantars soothing her, everyone manages to escape successfully.
In "Toadcatcher", Grime becomes depressive, after becoming a refugee to Newtopia due to the destruction of the South Toad Tower. He decided to relocate in an old Mill House to hide from the Newtopian guards on the look for him. While he stayed in the Mill House, he used Sasha's phone to binge watch Suspicion Island. Sasha has tried to get Grime back on his feet as she is worried that one day they could be ambushed by a Newtopian guard. Little to his knowledge, General Yunan of Newtopia located Grime and Sasha after eavesdropping on Percy and Braddock who revealed Grimes whereabouts. Sasha then taunts General Yunan and her lack of an army which causes Yunan to slice down numerous trees from behind her causing Grime and Sasha to flee the scene. As Grime was running beside Sasha, he told Sasha he wasn't able to do this and for her to leave without him. She denied that offer and informed him that she cared for him and he was the only friend she had left. This fueled Grime's positivity which played as Grime and Sasha were able to defeat Yunan by working together. They celetbrate in which Grime thinks of a new plan, which is to forget the Toad Tower, forget working for the king, he wants the toads to rule Amphibia. Sasha agrees and Grime goes off to watch the rest of Suspicion Island.

It is unknown if having one of his eyes injured is an advantage or disadvantage.
It is also unknown how his right eye got injured.
Nonetheless in "True Colors", it is revealed his green eye is his good eye, which means his blue eye is his bad eye.
In "Toadcatcher", he enjoys binge-watching Suspicion Island on Sasha's Phone and prefers watching it first over other important things.
According to General Yunan and some other frogs in "Toadcatcher", there is apparently a gladiator colosseum in Newtopia where Grime once fought in before he rose to ranks as captain.
