* AffablyEvil: Is remarkably polite when he isn't putting his scythe to work or getting bossed around by the title characters.
* AntiHero
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's pretty nice when not reaping, though it has been made clear on several occasions that despite his attitude and butt monkey status to Billy and Mandy, he is not one to be trifled with when his patience is at an end. Just ask Jack O' Lantern.
* {{Badass}}: While being pushed around by Billy and Mandy. He still knows how to get the job done as the reaper and kick a mean can of ass.
* ButtMonkey
* CantStandThemCantLiveWithoutThem: On several occasions when he is given the opportunity to be free of Billy and Mandy.

* UnexplainedAccent: Grim's Jamaican accent. His grandmother also has one, and has a Jamaican look to her to boot.

->Voiced by: Creator/RichardStevenHorvitz

* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Parent]]: To his "son", the giant spider, Jeff. (Semi-justified in that Billy is extremely stupid and has an irrational fear of spiders)
* {{Adorkable}}
* AmbiguousDisorder: It's fairly obvious that Billy has genuine mental problems in addition to being extremely stupid, as shown by his bouts of psychotic, murderous rage.
* AnnoyingLaugh
* AntiHero
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Billy's three greatest fears are spiders, clowns, and the mailman, with the greatest fear of them all being a spider/clown/mailman hybrid.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Billy is often the dumbest one on the show, but he has been shown to have bouts of psychotic rage that scares even Mandy.
* ButtMonkey
* ChaoticStupid: When Billy takes Mandy's Nerve, he gleefully abuses Grim, implying that a lack of courage was the only thing that stopped him from doing so before. He also has an "inner frat boy" that advises him to beat the crap out of anything he doesn't understand.
* CheerfulChild
* CloudCuckooLander
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He was able to outfight all of Asgard in one episode.

* {{Gasshole}}
* HeManWomanHater: He insists that Mandy and other girls not be allowed on his baseball team... despite them soundly being better at it than he is.
** Even having Mindy outperform his team didn't change Billy's mind.
* HeroicComedicSociopath[=/=]LackOfEmpathy: Especially apparent when interacting with his "son", Jeff.
* ImprobablyLowIQ: -5.
* InformedJudaism: The Christmas episode states he's Jewish, but it's never brought up again.
* JerkassBall: As with Mandy, Billy has his moments, too.
* {{Keet}}
* LethallyStupid: ''Everything'' Billy does within the show will inevitably result in mass destruction and chaos, especially when magical artifacts like Grim's scythe are involved.
* MadeOfIron: He has suffered many injuries throughout the show's run (several of which result in his skin being torn open) & absolutely none of them were permanent.
** A few of his injuries involve ''having his entire face being blown or torn off''!
* MoralityPet: For Mandy. When she's not bullying him or helping him for her own personal gain, she's treats him as a scolding mother would treat her son.
* TheMcCoy

->Voiced by: GreyDeLisle

* AntiHero
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Despite living in a world where supernatural elements are commonplace, and being friends with the Grim Reaper himself, Mandy adamantly refuses to believe in such things as Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.
* BewareTheQuietOnes
* BigBad: Of The Grim Adventures Of The Kids Next Door.
* BigOlEyebrows
* BlondesAreEvil
* CreepyChild
* DeadpanSnarker
* EldritchAbomination: Or at least a reasonable facsimile thereof.
** HumanoidAbomination
* EmotionlessGirl
* EnfantTerrible
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She wants to rule the world and turn it into a dystopia, but she is not okay with cheating.
* EvilGenius
* {{Expy}}: Has a few elements of {{Ren|AndStimpy}}, mostly in her role to counter Billy's Stimpy role. Can also be a {{darker and edgier}} version of Gaz from InvaderZim.
* {{Flanderization}}: From having no emotions, along with a HairTriggerTemper, to a totally sadistic psychopath trying to take over the world, who not only can pretty much fix or undo anything by just appearing on the scene, but owns everyone apparently.
* FlatEarthAtheist
* FluffyTheTerrible
* GuileHeroine
* HairDecorations
* HatesBeingTouched
* HeroicComedicSociopath[=/=]LackOfEmpathy
* HiddenDepths: The prospect of living a life of quiet desperation is ''the only thing'' that can shake Mandy to her core.
* HijackingCthulhu: In a certain episode, a [[BrainFood brain-eating]] [[EldritchAbomination alien monster]] with a [[Music/{{Voltaire}} familiar singing voice]] has been spending the whole episode being fed by Billy. When Mandy confronts it, it sucks out her brain.... but its aura immediately changes to resemble Mandy. Her only explanation is that she was [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth too "spicy".]]
** Likewise she does this to the "Delightful Reaper" in the KND crossover when she realizes it was too powerful for Kids Next Door's weaponry and ''willingly'' let it assimilate her. Like it the above example, it takes on her appearance.
* HornedHairdo
* ImprobableWeaponUser: In the Creator/CartoonNetwork game "The Fight Before Christmas", she uses a toy hammer, a toy plane, a doll[[note]]which she hurls like a throwing star[[/note]], a fistful of marbles and a pan of popcorn as weapons against the evil toys overrunning Santa's workshop.
* InformedDeformity: In ''My Fair Mandy,'' a skilled make-over artist was shocked by her appearance, at first mistaking her for an ugly tree stump.
* IronLady: Her ultimate goal in life is "[....][[DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife to do something]] [[YoungConqueror important!"]] [[spoiler:She eventually is elected president of the United States, and in the distant future, will rule the world.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: More and more after each season. Beyond a shadow of a doubt. Her beast transformation in "Sickly Sweet" even makes her sound like a ''literal'' ass (the animal). Hell, that episode shows that even trying to do anything nice is nearly impossible for Mandy, to the point where she has physical difficulty just trying to say "Please."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While she does do heroic actions like saving Billy from himself or whatever MonsterOfTheWeek they're up against, as well as saving the whole planet, Mandy will ''always'' have a selfish motive in mind no matter what. She is also shown to care about Grim and Billy, even though she won't admit it and never talks about it.
* KarmaHoudini: RuleOfFunny usually dictates that she gets off scot-free. But there are a few occasions where she's outwitted.
* LadyOfWar: Thoroughly subverting RealWomenNeverWearDresses, Mandy, a staunch feminist, wears pink while discussing [[DealWithTheDevil Faustian bargains]] over tea.
* LittleMissBadass
* LittleMissSnarker
* MaddenIntoMisanthropy: It's implied that three things helped complete Mandy's metamorphosis into the cynical tyrant we all know and love: The realization that her beloved unicorn toys were being churned out daily by a factory, Mindy's inane, meaningless prattle, and having to deal with Billy every single day of her life.
* ManipulativeBitch
* TheNoseless
* OneWingedAngel: Her future self.
* OnlySaneMan: Trades roles with Grim, depending on the episode.
* PerpetualFrowner: [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Because if she smiles....]]
* PetTheDog: She will occasionally meditate on the possibility that she actually cares about Grim and Billy...[[IgnoredEpiphany but ultimately dismiss the errant thought.]]
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Though rarer than with Billy, she's not immune to physical comedy. Whether that's being [[AshFace burned to a crisp]] by Cerberus in "Mandy Bites Dog", or being [[CoveredInGunge covered in snot]] twice after Grim sneezes on her in "Night of the Living Grim".
* SociopathicHero
* TheSpock
* TheStoic
* TinyTyrannicalGirl: In fact, almost everyone in the show is afraid of her.
* TokenEvilTeammate
* TookALevelInJerkass: Mandy became more hostile and disrespectful towards her friends in later seasons.
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist
* VillainProtagonist
* WhenSheSmiles...she tears the very fabric of time, space, and reality apart. For the sake of humanity, it's better that she doesn't smile.
** Although in some earlier episodes, this trope is played straight.
* WiseBeyondHerYears
* YouGoGirl: Billy wouldn't allow Mandy in his baseball team because she's a girl. Trying to teach him a lesson, she disguised herself as a boy named "Manfred" by donning a baseball cap.
** Billy and Irwin made a racing team and wouldn't allow Mandy in because she's a girl so she started her own team with Grim, who was rejected from Billy and Irwin's for being a skeleton. Pud'n won.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: He is the main character of Underfist.
* {{Hunk}}: The movie suggests that he will grow up to be this. When Mandy faces a vision of her worst fear -- growing up to be a cheerful, friendly adult -- she is horrified to learn that her future self is married to an adult Irwin. And that he's ''gorgeous''.
* StalkerWithACrush: To Mandy.

* PhysicalGod
* RealityWarper: Comes with the territory of being an evil chaos goddess.

* BigBad: Of the first movie (interviews with Maxwell stated that ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan Wrath of Khan]]'' was what inspired him to use him since he appeared in only one episode). He was also indirectly responsible for the events in the second one.
* FauxAffablyEvil
* HumiliationConga: [[spoiler:What happens to him in the climax of the first film. It is so too much for him that the epilogue states that he got completely traumatized for life.]]
* JadedWashout: He tends to boast he used to be way scarier than Grim in their highschool years, but nowadays he is just a second-rate monster that can't even scare one single child (except [[TheChewToy Irwin]]).

* AntiVillain
* BeneathTheEarth: Lives in the Earth's core.
* CharacterDevelopment: Starts off as an AntiVillain, but ends up becoming a friendly member of Billy's extended family who usually means no harm. This primarily came after he began a family of his own.

* TheDitz: Even Billy is smarter than him and that REALLY says something.

The main antagonist in the Halloween special, Billy & Mandy's Jacked Up Halloween.

* BigBad: Of the Halloween special.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The members of his own town saw to it he was executed just because he didn't know when to stop pranking them. Pretty dark, given the silliness of the show in general.

* EvilLaugh
* GenreSavvy: He actually manages to see through what he thinks is Mandy initial attempts to prank him. However he doesn't count on Erwin's clumsiness.

He was even used for part of Cartoon Network's live action Halloween promos via a puppet.
* DisappearedDad: To [[spoiler: Irwin's dad.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of ''Film/{{Blacula}}'', the joke being he bears his name despite not looking at all what most media make of him. For extra HilariousInHindsight, in the Blacula movie, Dracula is the one who turns Blacula.

* {{Jerkass}}
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: On occasion, such as sucking poison out of Grim or giving Irwin advice on accepting his monster heritage.
** JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
