** It's not a case of ''getting past'' the cannibalistic rapist burglar hobbits and orcs with machine guns riffing off FullMetalJacket; these sorts of things are the the point of the book.

''Grunts!'' is a a fantasy novel by British author MaryGentle and originally published in 1992. It is told from the point of view of a band of [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] (the titular "grunts"). It riffs on the ideas explored by Gentle and others in the anthology, ''Villains: Who Needs Heroes Anyway?'' published in the same year, writing HighFantasy from the perspective of the {{villain|s}}. At the time, this was a new idea in fantasy writing and ''Villains'' and ''Grunts!'' were considered pretty innovative for it.

* {{Mordor}}: A glance at the maps in the frontispieces of Grunts! quickly tell you where the Dark Lord lives. Yep, over there, in the East. Where it says "The Dark Lands"; separated from the rest of the world by a huge mountain range littered with orc forts and a Necromancer's Tower.

* ComedicSociopathy: Most of the major characters invoke this to some degree - Ashnak and the orcs savagery, [[MurderArsonAndJaywalking rape, cannibalism and cheerful commission of war crimes and election rigging]] are definitely being played for laughs.
