"I am Grodd. Kneel before me, or suffer my wrath."
Gorilla Grodd is a giant, hyper-intelligent silverback gorilla and the leader of the Gorilla Force. He is greatly intelligent, smarter than most humans. He is huge, over 6 feet on his knuckles, and about 8 on his feet. Grodd is immensely strong, capable of lifting cars, killing humans with ease, and severely injuring a demigod (Riolu). After Grodd's coronation, he became a sworn foe of most of the Gangs, and also to the Second Blue Team. Since, he has commanded the Gorilla Force against his foes, in pursuit of taking over the world and making apes the dominant species.
Since his elimination of most American gangs, his Gorilla Force has grown very strong, becoming an army in its own right. Currently, he is regarded as one of the most powerful and feared figures in the United States, and likely the planet.
Grodd first began his rise as a zoo gorilla in New York City. Prior to the destruction of the Chaos Gods, he was a simple gorilla with simple behavior and primitive thoughts. After the fall of Chaos, where the world was obliterated but healed, the radiation from the dead planet spread across the globe, although it affected few lifeforms. Among them was the gorilla that would be Grodd. He gained awareness and the ability to think rationally later. At that point, he was harassed by Luchadores who wanted to agitate the gorilla and extract some of his testosterone for one of their drugs. Grodd got angry, and bursted out of the cage, killing everyone observing him. Then, he escaped the zoo and inspected the bodies of his foes. They bore the Luchadore symbol, which gave Grodd information as to where their employer was.
Grodd surprise attacked the Luchadore boss, Killbane, in his own private room. He busted through the glass overlook, and was immediately met with Luchadore guards. Grodd cleverly feigned a surrender, and when the armed gangsters got in close, he took them all out with savage gorilla strength, killing all 4 guards in 5 seconds. He then approached Killbane, discussing his knowledge of Killbane's "gorilla testosterone plans". Pryor denied his involvement, while quietly drawing a gun from his drawer. When Grodd scolded Killbane of his decision, he drew the gun and attempted to fire, but the gorilla stopped him. He knocked the pro wrestler down, and then stated that he would kill him. Grodd then bashed and mangled the man, leaving him dead.
