“Fear the Fish!”
    —Deep Dive Gill Grunt's official catchphrase

Deep Dive Gill Grunt is the SuperChargers counterpart of Gill Grunt in Skylanders: SuperChargers. His signature vehicle is the Reef Ripper.


Gill Grunt now possesses a trident which he can jab his opponents with, and unleash powerful blasts of Lightning with it. Gill Grunt can now use his jet pack to create waves to wash away foes. His Soul Gem allows him to use his trident to summon a storm which rains lightning down on enemies.

  • Unlike his previous versions, Deep Dive Gill Grunt's water jetpack (if the Water Weaver path isn't chosen) doesn't require seconds of recharging.
    • However, the feature of his new jetpack is based on choosing the Water Weaver path.
  • He, Zap, Punk Shock, and Wham-Shell are the only Water Skylanders with electricity-based abilities.
    • Deep Dive Gill Grunt is the first Water Skylander that can use electricity-based abilities, but is not from royalty. 
  • When he, Big Bubble Pop Fizz, Super Shot Stealth Elf and Bone Bash Roller Brawl are placed on the portal, they say their official catchphrases in a slightly different tone of their voices.
    • This also applies to most of their quotes, which have been completely re-recorded. 
  • Deep Dive Gill Grunt has similarities to the DC Comics hero, Aquaman. Both are connected to sea life, both have green and orange in their color schemes and they both have tridents for weapons.
  • Although not included in the game, Deep Dive Gill Grunt can be seen on the promo art of Skylanders: Ring of Heroes.[1]
