"It started out so simple, so pure. I collect one [soul] here... devour one there. I could start and stop whenever I wanted. Now... now the hunger owns me. It is beyond my control!"
—Mr. Grimm, Twisted Metal: Head-On

Mr. Grimm is a character in the Twisted Metal Series, he is the Grim Reaper and incidentally his bike is also named Mr. Grimm. Following the original Twisted Metal Tournament, Mr. Grimm became the Grim Reaper in 2005 and Calypso has been the only one able to elude him. Also, it seems Calypso made some sort of "deal" with him.

B Mr Grimm 2

Mr. Grimm and his best friend, Benny, were drafted into the war when they were only 21 years old. Neither one was prepared for the terror of the Vietnamese jungles. Their army was outnumbered, outclassed and unprepared. Platoon after platoon fought the enemy bravely, but quickly fell. The horrors of each battle tortured the survivors. The screams from nightmares could be heard in the trenches each night.

Mr. Grimm and Benny saw their comrades fall ten at a time... they knew that their time would come too. They swore to always watch each others back...

Mr. Grimm - Twisted Metal Black


1. When I win this contest, I'll have my revenge. What he did to me, to my friend, ripped my mind apart...

2. My killing instinct; it's coming back to me now...just like in the war. I'd forgotten how good I am at this...

3. I have to stay focused on the fight. But every dead body I see brings back the chavings...have i gone insane?

4. Minion won last year's contest. But I'm not afraid. If I can just find a way past his force field, I can beat him.

5. God, Benny...I'm so sorry. I shoulda never done what I did. I wish I had died too...

6. This arena is like the jungle, close quarters. You move in and out quick before the enemy knows what hit'em.

7. Will the man who destroyed my mind even recognize me after all this time? I hope he does. I hope he's terrified.

8. I'm too close. I won't give up. Once I kill this bastard, nothing will stand in my way...

Mr. Grimm decides to enter the tournament as a chance for someone else to be the Grim Reaper. It is revealed he was 26 years old when he died.

In-game info:

Name: Mr. Grimm

Tale of the Tape: Age: 26 -- Height: 5' 10" -- Weight: 180 (all stats are from when he was human)

Backstory: 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.


Special Weapon: Screaming Soul - Launches a flaming skull. It only fires straight.

Vehicle: Mr. Grimm

Twisted Metal: Lost

Vehicle: Mr. Grimm

Driver: Mr. Grimm

Twisted Metal (2012)

Mr. Grimm 2012

Mr. Grimm appears in Twisted Metal (2012) as the leader of his own faction, The Skulls. He is still associated with the motorcycle of the game, although it is named Reaper instead of sharing his name. He is also one of the three playable characters in Story Mode, along with Needles Kane and Dollface.

Unlike the other games, this version of Mr. Grimm is not the Grim Reaper, but an African-American criminal and murderer named Daniel Grimm, whose stuntman father lost his life during a performance. He blames his father's death for the bad life he grew into; thus, he hopes to win the competition in order to prevent his father's death from happening.

Mr. Grimm's main opponents are The Dolls, led by Dollface in her own quest to win the competition. Their ultimate weapon, Iron Maiden, attacks him in the final battle, but Mr. Grimm emerges victorious, sending Dollface plummeting to her death in the process.

Crashing through the window of Calypso's office, Mr. Grimm demands to be sent back in time so he can save his father. A moment later, he finds himself back in his father's truck, where his father and past self are traveling to the fatal event; unfortunately, his father assumes that he has ill intentions and attacks. The struggle causes the truck to get into an accident with two other vehicles, seemingly killing his father. Thrown from the seat, Mr. Grimm looks up to see his past self with the handgun their father kept under the seat for emergencies. Admitting that he would do the same thing in this situation, Mr. Grimm is shot dead by his own past self, implicity setting the younger Grimm on his path of darkness.

Somehow, the license plate from Grimm's father's truck found its way into Calypso's hands, becoming one of the many items on display in his trophy case.

Voice actor: Unknown

Actor (Live action): Kenyon Glover

Status: K.I.A (Dead)

Wish: Go back to the night where his father died

  • Twisted Metal 2 , Twisted Metal 3 and Twisted Metal: Black are the only games to feature Mr. Grimm's motorcycle with a side car addition.
