A Skalenzahne (pronunciation: SKAA-lin-tsaa-neh; Germ. sg. Skala pl. Skalen "scales" + Zähne "teeth") is a crocodile-like Wesen that first appeared in "Last Grimm Standing".


"Last Grimm Standing"Edit

Dimitri Skontos was captured by Leo Taymor to participate in the Löwen Games. After he had been fed human flesh and turned into a killing machine he became a popular attraction at the games. Even as a killing machine, Dimitri retained his intelligence and so was able to escape his Löwen captors. During his period of freedom he killed an innocent human couple, attracting the attention of the Portland Police Department. After his recapture he fought and killed Brian Cooney, his friend, who was a Dickfellig. Even though Monroe helped him by removing a piece of flail from his hand he was still going to kill him in the arena until Nick Burkhardt entered the arena. He was defeated by Nick and taken into custody.

Characteristics Edit

Like many other reptilian Wesen, Skalenzahne have a severe woge. They grow crocodilian scutes all over their body, rather than the scales of other reptilian Wesen. Depending on the lighting, they range from a greenish yellow, to a yellowy brown. They lose their hair, and their ears, which are replaced by two holes, one either side of their head, and gain a short snout, containing razor sharp teeth which they can use to rip their food to pieces. Their scales go over their whole body. They also gain sharp reptilian claws, which can casually rip humans to pieces.

They are incredibly strong and durable creatures having thick crocodile-like skin, and are described as having no weaknesses. They are at least as strong as Blutbaden, and one was able to briefly fight a Grimm on equal ground. They are described by a Löwen as being natural fighters. They also heal a lot faster, and can take much more serious wounds than humans can. During the fights Dimitri was in during "Last Grimm Standing", he was seriously wounded and lost a lot of blood several times, but was fighting again within a few days.

Behavior Edit

Typically, these creatures exist peacefully among the human population, but they can become barbaric when introduced to the taste of human or Wesen flesh. In this state they will savagely kill all, even their friends. Once entering this state, they become incredibly carnivorous, devouring meat like a starved animal, regardless of what sort of meat it is.


Trivia Edit

  • The name, which was probably supposed to be "scale teeth," is incorrect German. "Skala" refers only to a measuring scale; an animal scale is "Schuppe" in German. Additionally, the plural of "Zahn" (tooth) is "Zähne," not "Zahne."
