Captain Grimothy "Grime" is one of the three secondary antagonists (alongside Sasha Waybright and King Andrias) of the 2019 animated television series Amphibia. The former ruler of Toad Tower, Grime was charged with overseeing the frogs of Wartwood, though his ruthless and tyrannical governing was a point of contention. He recruited the human Sasha Waybright as his lieutenant upon her arrival in Amphibia, and with her aid, reprioritized his goals to taking over the kingdom of Newtopia and the world at large. However after finding out King Andrias is in reality a monstrous despot bent on conquering other worlds, he reforms and joins Sasha in a rebellion against him.
As seen in "Prison Break", Grime feels that he must be quite respective with his discipline towards his own crew of knights, and before when Sasha told him that his army might cooperate and listen better if he were nicer as Grime usually acts rude not to mention, disrespectful to his army. Most likely because he expected it would toughen them up by using his less impressive words. However, this only ended with the all other toads feeling weaker and ever since then, Grime has been trying his best as he continues showing more respect to honor the loyalty of his soldiers ergo in return, they strictly follow his commands.
Despite his villainy, Grime isn't completely heartless, as he seems to genuinely care for Sasha since she saved him from a heron, as he rescued her from the tower and looked furious when she appeared injured. Also, Grime does see Sasha as his friend because she accepts him for who he is and he does with her in return. Through his friendship with Sasha, Grime goes through a change of heart as he discovers what it truly means to be a friend and to do what's right.
Captain Grime is a large green toad. With a more slight terrifying appearance than any other of the toads, he possesses one glowing yellowish left eye while his right one is injured with a scar leading down lower mouth and has sharp yellow teeth. He wears brownish armored clothes with a dark cape.
