Gill Grunt (Series 1) – Fear the Fish!
Series: Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure
About Gill Grunt (Series 1)
Gill Grunt is one fish who never lets evil off the hook, willing to protect people other than himself and his friends. He believes himself to be one of the greastest singers in history, while others find his singing to be dreadful; a trait shared by all Gillmen. In spite of this, Gill Grunt’s friends (with the exception of Eruptor) don’t have the heart to tell the Gillman how dreadful he sounds.
Gill Grunt was a brave soul who joined the Gillmen military in search of adventure. While journeying through a misty lagoon in the clouds, he met an enchanting mermaid. He vowed to return to her after his tour. Keeping his promise, he came back to the lagoon years later, only to learn a nasty band of pirates had kidnapped the mermaid. Heartbroken, Gill Grunt began searching all over Skylands. Though he had yet to find her, he joined the Skylanders to help protect others from such evil, while still keeping an ever-watchful eye for the beautiful mermaid and the pirates who took her.

- Gill Grunt is the personal favorite Skylander of Alex Ness, the Chief of Staff in the development of Skylanders. Alex even admitted that he has a weird loyalty to Gill Grunt.
- Despite being one of the Skylanders who can speak English in Spyro’s Adventure, Gill Grunt still has few of his original gibberish lines which sounded like “Moosh garapita!” or even perhaps, “Who’s got a pizza?”. Toys for Bob claims they couldn’t part with one particular line because more than a few of the developers were known to walk around the office saying it for many months.
- Although Gill Grunt’s biography states that he still searches for his mermaid girlfriend after joining the Skylanders, Toys for Bob’s Chief of Staff, Alex Ness, mentioned that the Gillman rescued her before he became a Skylander.
- Gill Grunt is the only Skylander from the Spyro’s Adventure console starter pack who doesn’t have a Legendary counterpart.
- He can use his water hose and jet pack infinitely while in a body of water and can refill it faster.
