The second crossover {{webcomic}} from Vinson Ngo a.k.a Creator/{{Bleedman}} (the first being ''Webcomic/PowerpuffGirlsDoujinshi''), created in late 2004 (roughly a year after PPGD was started). Grim Tales from Down Below is a fan-comic based on fanfics, focusing on two characters created by E.R.M Griffin ([=DeadDoll00=]), the children of Grim and a now adult Mandy, from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', who in this AlternateContinuity are the king and queen of the underworld: Grim Jr. (a.k.a. Junior) and his patchwork sister Minnie (short for Mini-Mandy), while incorporating an origin fanfic for the two which was written by [=SonicRose=].

Like PPGD, Grim Tales started off at [[http://bleedman.deviantart.com/gallery/#Grim-Tales-From-Down-Below DeviantArt]] before Ngo moved it to Snafu-Comics. Already well known, Grim Tales added more readers to Ngo's already overflowing fanbase. Ngo has a penchant for incorporating {{Narm}}, and DarkerAndEdgier, and ''extreme'' FanDisservice in his works, and as such, the comic has garnered some controversy, particularly regarding a plot point within the comic where it is revealed [[spoiler:that Mandy initiated the terrorist attacks of September 11th in an attempt to win Grim's affections.]]

After six years , the main series eventually finished in June 2009 and was apparently the end to the series. However Ngo unveiled he was working a short sequel called ''[[http://bleedman.deviantart.com/art/GTAB-studies-115106824 AfterBirth]]'' that apparently deals with Minimandy coping with her agelessness and being left alone after Junior sets out on a life of adventure. [[http://bleedman.deviantart.com/art/What-s-happening-174441924 Here are some preview pics of the comic.]] This story, however, has been stated to be [[http://www.snafu-comics.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=53565&f=2 non-canon]].

In February 2011, the comic continued with a mini-series called [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=138 Grim Tales: What About Mimi]] ([[FunWithAcronyms GT: WhAM]]). The comic follows [[spoiler: Him's Daughter]] Mimi, who is sent into the Grim's household to local an object of immense power for him. During said mission, [[ADayInTheLimelight Mimi's past is brought to light]] bringing many shocking swerves with it. That eventually ended in July 2012.

After which came, ''[[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=204 Grim Tales: Further Orientation]]'' (GTFO), which is a collection of short stories featuring the main characters.

After the aforementioned GTFO ended with the first "Mimi" file, he began on "Grim Tales: Chapter VIII (Eight)" in April 2013.

Yeah if you haven't guessed by this point, [[CreatorsPet Bleedman really loves working on this series.]]

If you're intrigued by all of the above, then [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=0 commence reading]]. The sequel, [[http://bleedmancomics.wikia.com/wiki/Grim_Tales_From_Down_Below#Grim_Tales_Afterbirth_2 Afterbirth]], is uploaded fully on the Grim Tales Wiki. (Warning: you will have to navigate carefully to avoid spoilers)

----
!!''FanFic/GrimTalesFromDownBelow'' provides examples of:
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=188 Pain's sword]]
* AbusiveParents: Mandy and Junior [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=191 share a not-so-heartfelt moment.]] Judging from the ReactionShot from the rest of the family, it's supposed to be an unusual, WhatTheHellHero thing... [[TheLawOfConservationOfDetail if it's not already a regular occurrence.]]
* AccidentalPervert: In the middle of a [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=150 battle]] between [[spoiler: Mimi]] and [[spoiler: Minnie]], Junior's head and spine are dropped to the ground. Once he's on/near the ground, he's visually confronted with a clear view up [[spoiler: Mimi]]'s skirt.
* AlmostKiss: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=119 Mimi]] is such a MomentKiller sometimes.
* AlwaysABiggerFish: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=74 No kidding]]
* AntagonistInMourning: Of all the evils in this universe, [[EldritchAbomination Aku]] plays this trope straight. He became so depressed after the death of SamuraiJack that he turned his home into a copy of Jack's culture to have something to remember him by.
* ArtEvolution: Same as [[PowerpuffGirlsDoujinshi PPGD]], the style changed as the comic progressed
* ArtShift
* AscendedFanon: The flashback was originally a [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2683064/1/Grimm_Tales_from_Down_Below_The_Grim_Family_Tree fanfiction]] written by a fan that Bleedman decided to incorporate into the story.
* AuthorAppeal: Mimi and Junior have a very...suggestive relationship.
* AuthorOnBoard
* {{Badass}}: Has quite a few of em.
* BadassFamily: Junior and his family definetly count and by extend [[spoiler: his mother lovers]]. But the biggest example would be [[spoiler: Mimi]]'s family which includes her [[spoiler: father [[EldritchAbomination Him]] ]], [[spoiler: mother [[MamaBear Blossom]] and her two aunts, [[BewaretheNiceOnes Bubbles]] and [[CuteBruiser Buttercup]] and her grandfather [[BadassBookworm Prof. Utonium]] ]]. And if this [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=203 picture]] is any indication [[spoiler: [[BadassBookworm Dexter]] and [[TheSoCalledCoward Courage]] are part of the family as well]].
* BadFuture: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=169 this strip]]
* BadHumorTruck
* BarredFromTheAfterlife: It has [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Billy]] die and end up in Heaven. But the saints get fed up of him and kick him out (literally). Billy then ends up in Hell. But they get fed up of him there as well and he ends up wandering the Earth as a spirit.
* BeamOWar: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=128 It's payback time,]] [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch!]]
* BigBad: Three of 'em: Ooogie Boogie, Him, and finally Minnie's Nergal demons. Boogeyman in the non-canon sequel Afterbirth.
* BigDamnHeroes: Several. [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=72 This]] being a quite [[LegionsOfHell prominent example]].
** [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven]] was looking like one in Mimi's flashback...until Him [[BackStab shows up]]
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Something of a recurring theme among the various families in play. Perhaps not surprising, considering the greater part of the cast is comprised of demons [[EvenEvilHasStandards or worse]]. Ranges in magnitude from the occasional silliness to jaw-dropping acts of hostility and abuse.
* BerserkButton: Do not mess with Junior if you don't want to face the wrath of Minnie. Which leads us to...
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Minnie is sweet, gentle, respectful, and caring. Make her mad if you [[TooDumbToLive want to]].
* BlackSpeech
* BrotherSisterIncest: Minnie thinks of Junior as more than just a brother, despite her denials, [[http://bleedman.deviantart.com/art/You-complete-me-47523910 This seems to indicate that at some point in the future Grim Jr. will return her affections .]] Right now they seem to have an odd brother-sister version of a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship. [[spoiler: Continued with implications that Mimi might be Junior's half-sister as well, and her own half-sister seems to have feelings for her.]]
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: Or Nergal, as the case may be.
** More of a lampshading than an actual invocation of said trope.
* CallingTheOldManOut: [[spoiler: Nergal to Grim over how Junior and Minnie were conceived.]]
** And Junior to Mandy over Mimi. [[spoiler:Amazingly she's the one who backs down]]
* CanonDiscontinuity: ''Grim Tales: Afterbirth'', which was marketed as a sequel to the original webcomic, has been declared non-canon.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Minnie is not appreciative of Junior appreciating Mimi's skills, or her TooKinkyToTorture moment.
* ContinuityNod: [[spoiler: While under Her-induced rage]], Minnie makes reference to a piece of Valentine's day throwaway art involving [[TheRing the girl in the well]].
* CooldownHug: Minnie gives Junior [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=131 one]] to stop his monster side.
** And before that [[spoiler: Junior gave a Cooldown]]''[[spoiler: kiss]]''[[spoiler: to Minnie stop her from going VisualNovel/SchoolDays on him.]]
* {{Crossover}}: With several other shows. Most notably, ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' and ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''.
** Dora the Explorer, Teletubbies... where IS that Ice Cream Man from, anyway?
*** Prepare to feel very silly... [[spoiler: he's from ''Spawn'', of course. He's a paedophile serial killer named Billy Kincaid.]]
** Even some characters from the obscure cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Visionaries}}'' appear as Many's henchmen.
** Mandy's weapon vault is a room made of shoutouts to too many other books, movies, comics, cartoons and myths to count... but it's fun to try anyway
* CuteMonsterGirl: Minnie, Mimi [[spoiler: Him's Daughter]]
** Afterbirth bring us more of them including [[spoiler: [[MinaAndTheCount Mina]]]] who makes an actual appearance in the main series.
** Now there's Chi, daughter of Aku.
* DarkerAndEdgier
** Read Afterbirth. If you thought Grim Tales was morbid... you ain't seen nothing yet. Let's summarize: [[spoiler: The happy ending of Grim Tales rebounds - Minimandy has undergone an "Afterbirth" making her permanently stuck in her zombie body. Prior to this Junior left, preferring to train himself as a lone wolf so that his powers don't affect his loved ones (even though Minimandy was helping him with it). She leaves, gets abducted by the Boogeyman and offers herself as his bride, losing both of her eyes. Meanwhile, Junior is infuriated when he returns home to find her missing. This prompts a quest to find her, resulting in a rather disturbing encounter with an evil counterpart, Drax, while Junior's own half-siblings (born from Mandy and Dark Danny's illegitimate child) get used as science experiments. When the Big Bad is faced, he has captured the souls of children to fuel his own powers, and is defeated by getting literally dragged into the bowels of hell, telling the protagonists that they will burn for their parents's folly.]] And the ending... [[spoiler: Dark Danny is back to cause some unknown trouble shortly after the protagonists head home, most likely to cause hell over seeing his children acting benevolently and not as the destructive forces of nature he intended them to be.]]
* DeathByCameo: [[spoiler: [[NeckSnap Irwin]], [[TakingYouWithMe Hoss]] and [[DarkMagicalGirl Raven]] already have met that fate, now [[PowerPuffGirlsDoujinshi Blossom]] will more than likely be heading there soon. Or, at least, FateWorseThanDeath.]]
** [[spoiler: NeverFoundTheBody, For Raven and Hoss... and Irwin... well... it's not exactly verified.]]
** [[spoiler: It's mentioned offhand in GTFO that Him killed all of them, while Mimi was forced to kill her mother.]]
* DefiantStoneThrow
* DistractedByTheSexy: LooksLikeSheIsEnjoyingIt. [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=151 That was clever.]]
** Grim's urgent entrance gets a little side tracked, as seen [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=165 here]]. Not that we can blame him.
* EldritchAbomination: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=35 Ngo is quite apt at these.]]
* EmergencyTransformation: The comic pretty much leads up to this.
* EnemyWithout: What happened when Junior couldn't control Minnie's powers.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Him knew all along that Mimi wouldn't be able to stand reliving her greatest fear via "Horror's Hand." The mission to retrieve it was pretty much his way of "disciplining" her for her earlier betrayal.
* {{Fanservice}}
* FanDisservice
* FlippingTheBird: Junior to ''[[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu Mandy]]''. Kid's either got a [[BrassBalls solid set]] on him for a skeleton, or [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=192 an un-death wish.]]
* FloweryElizabethanEnglish: Minnie Mandy speaks like a person under the influence of too much Creator/WilliamShakespeare.
* GenderEqualsBreed: Minimandy is a human and Junior is a reaper.
** Somewhat subverted by the fact that [[spoiler: Minimandy is actually the illegitimate child of Mandy and Nergal Jr.]]
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Grim flat out says this to his son. Minnie even says "the pain will be brief".
* {{Gorn}}: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=189 This page]], especially the last two panels.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Mimi]]
* HotSpringsEpisode: Aku has natural hot springs in his castle which leads to great amounts of {{Fanservice}} from his GenderBender [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe form]].
** CensorSteam
* HowWeGotHere: The whole comic is basically one big flashback. Even having a flashback within a flashback when Junior tells Lock, Shock, and Barrel how his parents got together.
** And Grim has a flashback inside THAT one.
* HyperspaceArsenal: Mimi pulls this is pretty much every appearance, some of them are truly absurd, and [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]].
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: Junior with Minnie due to Him's influence.
* IfICantHaveYou: [[spoiler:[[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=107 DIE!]]''']]
* IJustWantToBeBadass: Grim Junior is surrounded by formidable badasses far more powerful and dangerous than he is, which is difficult to bear when you're the Grim Reaper's 'son.'
* IllKillYou!: See above spoiler.
* IncestSubtext: Minnie has... tendencies. [[spoiler: Straight into text as of the latter half. [[http://www.grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=139 Heavily teased.]]]]
* InexplicablyAwesome: It's never made clear why Mandy, even as a ten-year-old, had an aura more dark and evil than the Grim Reaper himself. Then again, [[RuleOfCool does it really matter]]?
* InformedAbility: [[HeyArnold Helga Pataki]] can be a jerk, but the idea that she's ended up as ”the meanest and rottenest teacher in the underworld” is overdoing it.
** However, this could be a case of UnreliableNarrator.
** She ''was'' why Minnie talks the way she does, so it could be more of a SugarAndIcePersonality.
* InterspeciesRomance: Mandy and Grim, Minimandy and Grim Jr., Mimi and Grim Jr., and [[spoiler: Mandy and Nergal Jr.]]
* {{Kamehamehadoken}}: Dark Danny
* LovecraftianSuperpower: The Nergal demons have these
* LoveTriangle: Grim Jr., Minnie,and Mimi
* LoserProtagonist: For all his [[BerserkButton berserk buttons]] and what [[spoiler: demon-reaper]] powers he may possess, protagonist Grim Junior is consistently flattened by any serious opponent he goes up against.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: Mandy and Grim.
* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: During the fight with the Pumpkinator redux [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=84 Nergal Junior's silhouette is visible]].
** On [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=171 this]] page, there are ''three'' [[BigDamnHeroes heroes]] which come to Mimi's aide, [[spoiler: [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Irwin, Hoss]], and [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven]]]].
* MegaCrossover: And [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters how]]! Even {{Spawn}} shows up.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Most monsters tend to have enormous mouths full of pointy fangs. [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=204 Bleed's rendition of Mina]] from ''MinaAndTheCount'' is a mild example.
* MsFanservice: [[SheIsAllGrownUp Mandy]] [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=28 grows up]] [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=33 real nice]]. [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=161 REAAAALLL]] [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=165 NICE]].
* NeckSnap: How [[spoiler: Him]] kills [[spoiler: Irwin]].
** Mimi pulls one on Junior also, but it's played for laughs as the whole page was a big MortalKombat spoof/parody/etc.
* NegativeContinuity: The use of this in ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' is revealed to be Grim just not feeling like reaping them.
** In Mandy's case it was for a [[TheJailBaitWait specific purpose]]. Billy on the other hand... [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=24 Well it's complicated]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=190 Observe.]]
* NoodlePeople: Minnie has extremely long legs for an eight-year-old girl, and highlights this by wearing leotards and extremely short dresses all the time. [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=135 Exhibit A.]] It gets more pronounced as the ArtEvolution goes on; in the beginning she looks more normal. Junior looks pretty noodley himself in [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=99 this page]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Practically everything that happens in the story is Junior's fault for telling his sister off. DisasterDominoes, anyone?
* ObligatorySwearing
* OhCrap: Several times, especially Junior's face in [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=121 this comic]]
* OneWingedAngel: Minnie, with and without her soul. Particularly gruesome in the latter.
** [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=130 Was that all you got, WORM?]]
** Him also has [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=184 one]] which he assumes [[spoiler: after being nuked]]
* OrphansOrdeal: In [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=174 this image]], Mimi witnesses [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven's]] death at the hands of [[PowerPuffGirls Him]], barely able to utter the word "Mama" as she falls. Given what we know becomes of her under Him's [[FromBadToWorse "care"]]...
** She survived, but given how things are going, give it another three pages...
* PantyShot: Oh sorry, "Realistic Skirt Physics".
** And yet there's still a fair amount of MagicSkirt action. Whether girls jumping around in extremely short skirts results in a PantyShot seems to depend entirely on the whim of the artist.
** Given an interesting twist in a [[FreezeFrameBonus Blink And You'll Miss It Moment]] in [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=107 this strip]], see if you can spot it.
* PassThePopcorn: Clockwork.
* PensieveFlashback: Mandy activates a device in the vault which sends them and Mimi into one.
* PurityPersonified: Minnie. Except for the incest and {{Yandere}} aspects.
* PuppyLove: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=99 Oh]], [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=110 dear]] [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=135 God]], [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=136 the Puppy Love]]...
* RightForTheWrongReasons: Unknowly for her, Chi manages to [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=248 put the finger]] in what's going on with Mimi's errand (from the [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=154 "eaten by a demon dog"]] to [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=202 "biting a boy's head"]]), and she just happens to be wishing her the worse for not replying her messages.
* RuinsOfTheModernAge: [[spoiler: When Mimi was affected by the Hand of Horrors, her greatest fear was centered in the [[PowerpuffGirlsDoujinshi Ruins of Megaville]]]]
* SharedUniverse: with ''Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi'' ([[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=169 albeit a bit into the future]])
** Actualy the co-writer/editor Bee Are and the colorist Seiryuga for PPGD have reportedly stated this to be false. Though as Seriyuga no longer works on the comic this has turned into a FlipFlopOfGod.
* ShoutOut
** Billy's unpredictable hourglass appears to be a shout out to [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Rincewind's]].
** Nergal Jr. shows wup wielding [[SoulSeries Soul Edge Phantom]].
** The same page as [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=33 Adult Mandy]] is on? Yea, tear your eyes off her and look to the bottom-right. It's a line-for-line reference to "[=LABretto=]", from WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory. Just [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLC7DFYWGJM see for yourself]].
** WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd cameos [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=105 here]] as the personification of the Deadly Sin Wrath.
** The demon-mecha has an odd VerbalTic. [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Yes...]]
** See TheCameo. Nasty Burger is from WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom.
** [[Film/{{Gladiator}} "Am I not]] [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=141 Merciful!?"]]
** And just like the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jollibee Jollibee]] shout out in The ''PowerPuffGirlsDoujinshi'', Bleedman made a shout out to another [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Miguel_Brewery another Filipino franchise]] [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=153 in this page]].
** Next to the sword Mini pulls out of Jr's Body to fight Mimi is a red-hilted [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Frostmourne.]]
** When Mimi infiltrates Grim's vault in the [=WHaM=] comic, every panel has one or two items on display in the background from some other franchise. They've ranged from CaptainAmerica's shield, to the [[Franchise/{{Hellraiser}} Lament Configuration]], to the [[ThunderCats Sword of Omens]], the [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}} Omnitrix]], [[TheMightyThor Mjlonir]], ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'s stone hand thing, [[PowerpuffGirls Chemical X]], [[TheFairlyOddparents Giglypi]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a robot]] with [[FrickinLaserBeams Freakin]] [[AustinPowers Laser]] [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=159 Beams]], [[Film/ThreeHundred Spartan Shield]], what looks like the silhouette of [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link's shield]], [[Franchise/ANightmareonElmStreet Freddy's clawed glove]], [[OverlyLongGag and]] the InfinityGauntlet. A silhouette that could be [[WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne Hector Con Carne's brain]], and the vial identified previously as Chemical X could just as easily be [[PowerpuffGirls Antidote X]], since it is black in color.
** Mimi [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=156 in this page]] somewhat resembles [[LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}} Senjougahara]] (as seen in that page's image).
** The Golem may look familiar to those who watched SamuraiJack. He's the Lava Monster/Norse Warrior that Jack help set free. The size and color may be different, but the [[http://sharetv.org/images/guide/343110.jpg resemblance]] is [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=176 uncanny]].
** Mimi fires [[http://www.grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=161 Angry]] [[AngryBirds Birds]]!
** Him's replacement of Mimi's hands might be a reference to the folktale The Girl With No Hands.
** Him's [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=203 background]] looks like Giygas from Videogame/{{Earthbound}}.
* SkywardScream - Mimi after her flashback from Hell
* StarfishLanguage: Check that article's picture.
* SummonBiggerFish: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=75 Damn straight]]
* TheCameo: [[MegasXLR Coop]] seen [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=27 here.]]
* TheChessmaster: Clockwork
* ThePresidentsDaughter: Minnie. For the love of God, Minnie.
* TheUnFavourite: Poor Junior, doesn't mean his parents and especially his sister don't care though.
** Particularly ironic when considering the later revelation that it's actually MINNIE who is Grim's Un-Favorite, due to her being the child of Nergal Jr., himself the son of his old rival, Nergal. He hides it flawlessly in front of his kids, but he definitely favors Junior over Minnie by a long shot. Whether that changed when Nergal's powers was passed from Minnie to Junior is another matter...
* TheUnintelligible: The "Nergellian Speak" Minnie, Nergal and later [[spoiler:Grim Jr.]] possess is show only as symbols and never translated. Even the Ngo himself lampshades he has no idea what their saying.
** Although, sometimes you can get the basic idea of what they might be saying. [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=136 Near the end]], their "Nergellian" appears in the form of hearts.
*** One of the most recent pages actually translates a short conversation between Junior and Mandy in the Nergel speak as footnotes.
* TakeThat: An extended flashback seems to be one directed at FusionFall The combined strength of the entire Creator/CartoonNetwork lineup fails to stop [[spoiler: Armaggeddon at the hands of Mandy, Grim, and Him.]]
* TheVoiceless: Mimi doesn't utter a word through her appearance in the comic.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Dark Danny has a line or two like this.
* TimeSkip: If the preview pics are to be believed, ''Afterbirth'' will be this.
* TomatoSurprise: [[spoiler: Minnie's actually the illegitimate child of Nergal Jr. and Mandy. Junior is also the illegitimate child of Mandy and an as yet unknown man, but the matter is dropped before that person is revealed.]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: Mimi being stretched out by Minnie only hurts her for a second until she starts liking it.
** Comes back again in a recent chapter where she moans with pleasure as she places a burning hot chakra to her forehead.
* TheWorfEffect: Once again, poor Junior.
* VillainousBSOD: A brief one, but with a twist. [[AxCrazy Dark]] [[JerkAss Danny]] [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=175 here]] contemplates the chaos and destruction of Megaville shown in Mimi's past via "The Hand of Horror." He has a BSOD of sorts not because he caused the destruction, but that ''[[BloodKnight he wasn't around to cause it]]''. Also a touch of FridgeLogic when you realize that with all the heroes gone, that includes the young Danny Phantom, meaning their rivalry will never be settled like Dark Danny wanted.
* WallOfText: Rather extreme in both [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=57 this]] and [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=59 this]]
* {{Yandere}}: Minnie.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Minnie.
* YourCheatingHeart: Mandy cheated on Grim with [[spoiler:Nergal Jr., resulting in Minnie.]] Recently, she's apparently slept with [[spoiler:[[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=142 Dan Phantom]]]]. As it's clearly stated that Grim cannot [[spoiler:conceive a child (Junior has a different father and became Grim's son by being aborted)]], and it is unclearly stated that there isn't anything except bones to him, it might be a "can't fulfill your needs" situation, and Grim knows about [[spoiler: Dan Phantom because he told Grim to his face in [[FunWithAcronyms GT:WhAM]], and in the Afterbirth preview Mandy has twins.]]
** Because we can't be so sure as to the extent of Blossom and Dexter's relationship in the future, but he could ''not'' have been pleased to discover that Blossom sired a child with ''[[{{Satan}} Him]]'', of all people.
** Of course, whose to say this wasnt done by [[RapeAsDrama another way]].
** Although, the trend has been one of Bleedman's fetishes lately, adding just more half-siblings to Junior as story progresses, so maybe AuthorAppeal?
* YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo: [[http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=111 Here]]
* YouShallNotPass: After Mimi's demonic essence is removed and contained, Mandy orders Pain to remove her from the premises...but Junior's suddenly blocking the way and his eye is aglow. Defying your mother is one thing, but when she's ''Mandy'', it takes some real BrassBalls, skeleton or not.
