A Fuchsteufelwild (FOOKS-toy-fuhl-vilt; pl. -wilder, Ger. fuchsteufelswild "furious as a fox-devil") is a goblin-like Wesen that first appeared in "Nameless".




When woged, a Fuchsteufelwild gains green skin, sharply pointed ears and nose, as well as fangs. Most notably, their four fingers fuse into two large digits from which extend razor sharp fingernails which are semi-retractable and a thicker thumb. Their voices also become higher and more shrill, like a Wendigo.

From their nails drips a highly corrosive acid, which is generated from the muscles in their hands. When the acid is used in conjunction with their nails, Fuchsteufelwilder can cut through flesh like a hot knife through butter. The acid is also strong enough to cut through much tougher substances, such as wood, glass, and even solid metal. Despite being small in stature, Fuchsteufelwilder can leap incredible heights and distances, even while in human form. They are also very fast and agile, and can move with great stealth.

Fuchsteufelwilder are highly intelligent and clever, which allows them to concoct their highly elaborate plans.


Fuchsteufelwilder are highly sadistic and love to play intricate games with their victims. While the nature of their games varies, they all have one thing in common; the victim must guess the Fuchsteufelwild's name which is always an anagram of the letters that make up the name Rumpelstiltskin. Due to their enormous egos, Fuchstefelwilder will become violent if they feel like they are about to lose, and will frequently try to kill their victims. If they know there is no way they can win, Fuchsteufelwilder will often commit suicide. Despite their formidable offensive capabilities, Fuchsteufelwilder prefer to take on their prey one at a time via ambush; likely stemming from their small stature. If faced with multiple well armed foes, Fuchsteufelwilder will run. Fuchsteufelwilder are particularly terrified of Grimms.

Excerpt from Grimm DiariesEdit

"This ill-tempered creature is small in stature but capable of horrible and cunning acts of violence. He has an immense ego for such a nasty little beast.

One might be inclined to laugh at him but it is not advisable for he is equipped (sic) with fierce bone-like fingers and powerful legs. His leap is far and his stomp can cause the earth to shutter (sic) beneath him. Its muscles secrete a highly concentrated acid allowing them to burn and slice through victims.

In the Wesen state, this beast's fingers become two digits and two extraordinary bone-like nails.
