This is impossible! I'm the Grim Reaper. Master of the Forces of Life and Death!
~ Grim upon losing a game of limbo to Billy and Mandy.

Grim is the main protagonist of the Cartoon Network TV show, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

He is voiced by Greg Eagles, who also voiced Aku Aku in Crash Bandicoot series, Gray Fox, Donald Anderson in Metal Gear Solid, and Peter Stillman in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.


Originally the Grim-Reaper for Earth, Grim came upon Billy and Mandy in his capacity as the Grim Reaper when Billy's hamster died and it's spirit needed to be reaped. Billy tried pleading with Grim to no avail. Mandy decided to offer him a bet for the fate of the hamster's soul, with Grim casually remarking that if they actually beat him he'd be their best friend forever. The contest chosen was limbo. Grim's over-confidence was his undoing as Mandy and Billy easily walked right under the bar due to their size in comparison to Grim. When Grim lowered the bar to the point where even he could not limbo underneath he lost the contest. The hamster was spared, but due to Billy and Mandy's interpretation of the term "best friend" Grim had to stay by their sides and do whatever they asked of him. Grime is now obligated to server the two children despite his grand station. The series revolves around the children's prolific abuse of Grim's vast powers and supernatural connection. Despite finding both Billy and Mandy insufferable brats, he does care for them both at the same time.


Grim was originally dour and proud, however time spent with the children has been an unliving nightmare for him and he is emotionally broken before them. As time went on Grim moved past his existential horror and settled into a casual cynicism. Billy remains oblivious to Grim's pain and genuinely thinks they are best friends, this has lead Grim to be less threatened by Billy but far more annoyed at the level of incompetence he displays. Mandy terrifies Grim, but the shared cynicism of the two means that they at-least tend to share the same mind-set. Grim has gotten used to the children and though he does not like serving them as the series progresses he has developed an attachment to them both. Grim ultimately would rather Billy and Mandy remain safe but he is still constantly trying to con both children into letting him go or setting up pranks to at the very least inconvenience the two.

Grim holds a grudge on Boogey (The Boogeyman) for the humiliation on him and the others in school and make them look like idiots. From his nuclear wedgie, Grim is embarrassed when people in school call him "Wedgie Shakespeare".

Heroic act: When Billy tried Harold's(The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy)lucky pair of pants his scythe got stuck to them and created The Delightful Reaper with the help from Nigel Uno Grim managed to get his scythe back after defeating The Delightful Reaper.
