The appearance of Grue remains largely unknown due to their quick speeds and aversion to light. They are known to possess slavering fangs, razor-sharp claws, and make horrible gurgling noises. According to some, it has a fish-mouthed head.
Grues are lethal predators that are quickly able to kill their prey. They are capable of moving in the dark completely unseen and undetected until they have overtaken their prey. Being gifted with night vision does little to help, save for giving you enough time to scream before death. Likewise, they are also quick creatures and able to quickly escape when light appears.
How to Defeat Edit
There is no know method for actually slaying Grues, though presumably being organic creatures, they would not be utterly invincible. In the event of attacking a Grue, it probably wouldn't stick around long enough to be finished off. The most effective way to ward off Grue is with light. The kind of light that is preferred by humans is so blindingly dangerous to Grue, that being trapped in it can cause them to die. Usually a Grue will escape before any permanent damage can be done, even when cornered...
