Groribas (グロリバース, Guroribāsu) was an alien and a general of the Dark Matter Thieves. He was killed by Saitama.[2]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Groribas had a very large and muscular body with shades of green across his shoulders and stomach. He lacked eyes on his head. In place of hands, Groribas had mouths with sharp teeth, resembling crab claws. He wore a spiked dog collar around his neck. He also had a very long and green tail with a fourth head on the end.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Groribas displayed great confidence in his battle prowess. He showed a somewhat goofy personality, not being able to decide which moves to use in a fight while heading to Saitama's location. Despite his aloof demeanor, he liked to slowly kill his enemies.[1]

Plot[edit | edit source]

Groribas meeting Saitama for the first time shortly before being killed by the hero

Hero Association Saga[edit | edit source]

Alien Conquerors Arc[edit | edit source]

When Geryuganshoop and Groribas learn of Saitama's intrusion into the ship, Groribas goes to deal with him. As he's going to Saitama's location, he wonders what special moves he'll use against him.

Groribas is killed

Groribas briefly appears in a futile attempt to stop Saitama from damaging the ship further. While touting his own abilities and preparing to strike down Saitama, he was beheaded by Saitama's punch.[3] 

Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

Due to his status as a dragon-level threat, it can be assumed he was an immensely powerful being. Along with Geryuganshoop and Melzargard, he was one of the strongest fighters of the Dark Matter Thieves after Boros.

Physical Abilities[edit | edit source]

Immense Strength: As a Dragon-level mysterious being, Groribas had very impressive strength. He was strong enough that he killed most of his opponents before he could display all of his techniques.

Immense Speed and Reflexes: As a Dragon-level mysterious being, Groribas naturally had amazing speed and reflexes, although he was never shown displaying them due to how quickly he was killed by Saitama.

Acid Breath (アシッドブレス, Ashiddoburesu): Groribas claimed to have an acid breath that can melt anything, but this is not shown due to the speed at which he is dispatched by Saitama.

Fighting Style[edit | edit source]

Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Groribas possessed multiple techniques which he wasn't able to show off due to his quick death by Saitama. Given their names, it can be assumed that he preferred hand-to-hand combat. He stated he would often kill his opponents too quickly before he could display all of his techniques.[4]

  • Double Bite: Groribas attacks with both arms at once. The effect of this move was never seen.
  • Purgatory Thorn Grip: One of Groribas's many moves that he did not get to display.
  • Sky Strangle Sunder: One of Groribas's many moves that he did not get to display.
  • Screw Tail Thrust: One of Groribas's many moves that he did not get to display.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Groribas's name is a possible pun of Guro (グロ), a shorten form of "grotesque" in Japanese and Reverse being often used to refer "vomiting" in Japanese.
  • Murata has stated that if Melzargard, Groribas and Geryuganshoop worked together to fight against Orochi, even with preparation, they have almost no chance of winning.[5]
