The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy video game pits the characters from the popular Cartoon Network television show against each other in a fighting-adventure game, filled with mayhem and chaos. In battle mode, up to four players can use a multitude of weapons in destructible arenas like the Desert of Doom and the Underworld to battle it out to be the last one standing. Players also have the option to play on their own or with a friend in mission mode, a series of 45 missions where players can unlock new weapons and characters like Hoss Delgado and the Boogey Man.
The Boogey Man is Grim's arch-nemesis from junior high. Boogey claims to be the scariest being alive, but lost a scaring contest to two bunnies and a paper towel in June of 1988.
Billys uncle and the father of Nergal Jr., Nergal is a misunderstood creature from the boiling center of the earth. Even though he only desires friendship, Nergal wont hesitate to fight back with the electrified tentacles that grow out of his body.
Irwin is a powerful, book-wielding social inferior who is obsessed with Mandy. It is unclear whether Irwins power as a fighter comes from his love of Mandy or frustration that she doesnt return it.
General Skarr is a one-eyed megalomaniac bent on taking over the world and having the best looking garden in Endsville. Even though his military days are behind him, Skarr is still considered extremely dangerousbut mostly to himself.
