A Dickfellig (Pronunciation: DIK-fay-likh; Germ. "thick-skinned") is a rhinoceros-like Wesen that was first seen in "Last Grimm Standing".



As depicted in the comic book series

Dickfellig have a quite mild woge. Both sides of their faces gain hard bumpy skin, and they grow one or two rhinoceros-like horns, with the primary horn sprouting out of their nose. Some Dickfellig also have a secondary, smaller one that emerges out of their forehead when they woge. The large horn on their nose spills blood if broken off.(Issue 1)

They are also superhumanly strong and durable, as was evident when Brian Cooney briefly held his own against a Skalenzahne and on a separate occasion, was willing to take on Nick upon first seeing him.

Unlike the rhinoceros, which relies on its nose for navigation, the Dickfellig's vision is about the same as any other human. Like humans, it is diurnal, so seeing at night requires some time for adjustment. ("The Chopping Block")


In the comics, Dickfellig sometimes have glowing red eyes.


Unlike many Wesen, they don't fear Grimms; however, they are still wary of them. Based on a description of one by Trubel, they attack by charging at an intended target.

Excerpt from Grimm DiariesEdit

(By Theresa Rubel)

319 Dickfellig by Trubel

...horn from his face! ...what I was seeing. Did I really see it?? But then he was charging me like a freakin' rhino! I ran down the alley but he followed me. I dove into a dumpster before he could see.




  • Actual rhinoceros horns are comprised of keratin rather than bone, though it is not known what Dickfellig horns are made of.
