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, he 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 a Water Skylander debuting in Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. He has had a different variant in each of the other five Skylander games: Gill Grunt Series 2 (Giants), Anchor's Away Gill Grunt (Swap Force), Tidal Wave Gill Grunt (Trap Team), Elite Gill Grunt (Eon's Elite), and Deep Dive Gill Grunt (SuperChargers). He also had a sidekick made as part of a promotion with Frito-Lay: Gill Runt. Gill Runt then got a full retail release as a playable mini character in the Skylanders Trap Team game.
He was also included in each of the starter packs for Skylanders Spyro's Adventure, except the 3DS starter pack.
