Grog Strongjaw is a fictional character played by Travis Willingham on a popular D&D web series Critical Role famously known for having an Intelligence of 6. Grog, a Goliath Barbarian is played as being fond of drinking, and will drink frequently and with great gusto. In early games, before Critical Role aired on March 12, 2015, Grog had already advanced several levels to level 9. [2] As of episode 115 of the Vox Machina arc, Grog was level 20.

Grog is fiercely loyal to Vox Machina. He is also impulsive, and this has caused issues for the group throughout the campaign [3]


There are currently nearly 1000 fanworks on Archive of Our Own featuring Grog Strongjaw. [4] Grog & Pike are often featured together in fanworks. Grog is sometimes shipped with Vax'ildan, likely due to their often pranking each other throughout the campaign.

After the Briarwood arc, Grog has received a magical sword called Craven Edge, which contained a malevolent soul, capable of speaking to Grog without being overheard by others. It served mostly as comic relief, and fans loved all those interactions. Some even shipped it.[5]
