Charging Grendels are small bipedal Plasma Minions from Cryos. They have high health and attack by charging at heroes from afar, but will attack with headbutts when at close range.


With their innately destructive temperaments, charging grendals are among the least mutated creatures in the Darkspore dominion. Possessing rock-like exteriors and equally dense brains, grendels are relentless, aggressive creatures, maniacally defensive over their territory, launching devastating attacks even at faraway foes.


Charging Grendels are fierce and annoying minions, capable of closing in on heroes and striking them with vicious headbutts. Grendels also have high health, so killing them could present more of a challenge than most minions.

Despite this, they're still relatively easy to deal with individually. But even a small group of them can be dangerous, and should be handled with caution.

A good AoE can take care of them though, such as Sage's Strangling Briars, Jinx's Web Transfusion, or Magnos' Kinetic Wave.

Another reason why Magnos might be a good choice is his Gravity Well unique ability, because it will prevent the grendels from charging and bring them within melee range, where Magnos can then finish them off with his Orbital Slam basic attack.


  • "Grendel" is one of the antagonists in the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf. In the poem, Grendel is usually depicted as a some sort of monster (though never directly described), and feared by all but Beowulf.
