Grug is the father figure of the Crood family. He is incredibly overprotective and worrisome of his family (although given the environment they lived in this was somewhat justified) who sticks very strictly to his motto "never not be afraid" Grug also frequently told stories about Krispy Bear which always ended in "he saw something new and died!" however as the film continued his personality began to change and he eventually let his family live their own lives. He is also very cautious as evidenced when the Crodos reached the jungle where they traveled one step at a time and him constantly saying "wait" before checking the environmen around him. Grug also appeared to develop an attachment to the cave they lived, describing it as "cozy" and when it was destroyed he appeared to be sad.

He teaches his children his own motto of "never not be afraid" and reinforces these teachings with constant story-telling regarding Krispy Bear which all end in "he saw something new and died". His youngest son, Thunk takes his fathers lessons to heart but is very gullible and indecisive opposed to Eep who never listens to Grug and is much more self-reliant.

Grug was also shown to have a violent temper and relied on brute force more than quick-thinking although he wasn't stupid, he still showed signs of being somewhat dim-witted as evidenced when while Thunk was trying to escape from fire, Grug suggested he hides from it in the grass which unintentionally caused it to spread however he still showed some common sense which was shown when Guy escaped and he stood on sharp rocks he urged his family not to do the same (which they did). Grug appeared to be anti-intelligent and thought that caveman didn't need brains as long as they had their brawn, during the film he had also been outsmarted by animals like the Macawnivory and monkeys in the jungle. It's not until near the end where Grug shows that he is actually quite intelligent and cleverly used the Piranhakeets to escape his own demise.

Grug also has a violent temper, can be more brawn than brains and appeared to be anti-intellectual. He detests the use of having a brain and thought that caveman didn't need to have an IQ as long as they had their brawn. He can be rather impulsive and not thoroughly educated, for example after Thunk was caught on fire Grug suggests to "hide from it in the tall, dry grass". Despite his anti-intellectual nature he can develop very intricate and clever ideas such as the rug, shades, mobile home, snap-shot, self-tightening belt, ride and lifterator. The greatest display of Grug's intelligence was when he used the Pirahhnakeets to escape his death.
   
Grug has has also shown tremendous physical strength, being able to move a heavy boulder by himself and was able to throw his entire family over a gaping chasm. However he was still strageatigic enough to know to not take on oppenents he knes he could not defeat such as the animal that stalked his cave and would either throw rocks or hide from them. As mentioned earlier despite Grug's anti-intelligence he was still creative enough to think outside of the box and have his own ideas such as the self-tightening belt, a rug (which is essentially a wig) a ride, the mobile home, shades, a snapshot and the lifterator which granted actually caused him and his son massive physical pain.

Grug has a deadpan and at times violent sense of humour. He was visibly elated when he thought Gran had died and later disappointed over discovering she was still alive. This is further shown when after Gran states she would never survive the journey, Grug enthusiastically states "let's do it." He seems to have developed a better grasp of humour, and while about to throw Guy across a chasm, he remarks that he wanted to "throw you away ever since I met you" and when Guy responds "is that a joke?" Grug confusingly responds "what's a joke".
   
Grug also shared some similar qualities with the stereotypical father, he generally dislikes his wife Ugga's mother and when he believed that she had died he was overjoyed, only to be disappointed upon discovering she was still alive (which became a running gag in the film). One of the main reasons he tried to have a good ideas was that Gran sarcastically said that she'd have a heart attack and die. Grug blatantly disliked Eep's crush, Guy after he began showing his daughter a more wonderous and exciting world, Grug became incredibly jealous and did everything in his power to keep them from getting intimate, Grug's contempt of guy ranged from verbal to psychical violence.

His devotion to his family made him a very loyal and selfless person. For example he protected the Croods from the falling rubble, at the risk of injuring himself and saved his family by throwing them across a chasm, knowing he would not be able to join them.

Grug Crood is the main protagonist of The Croods.

Personality

As the father figure of the Crood family, Grug is initially overprotective, worrisome and extremely patriarchal. He teaches his children his own motto of "never not be afraid" and reinforces these teachings with constant story-telling regarding Krispy Bear which all end in "he saw something new and died". His youngest son, Thunk takes his fathers lessons to heart but is very gullible and indecisive opposed to Eep who never listens to Grug and is much more self-reliant. This proves that although Grug does possess pure intentions his attitude towards his children can be self-destructive and short-sighted. He also appears to have the most attachment to the cave, he was visibly saddened over its destruction and describing it as "cozy".

Grug also has a violent temper, can be more brawn than brains and appeared to be anti-intellectual. He detests the use of having a brain and thought that caveman didn't need to have an IQ as long as they had their brawn. He can be rather impulsive and not thoroughly educated, for example after Thunk was caught on fire Grug suggests to "hide from it in the tall, dry grass". Despite his anti-intellectual nature he can develop very intricate and clever ideas such as the rug, shades, mobile home, snap-shot, self-tightening belt, ride and lifterator. The greatest display of Grug's intelligence was when he used the Pirahhnakeets to escape his death.

Grug has a deadpan and at times violent sense of humour. He was visibly elated when he thought Gran had died and later disappointed over discovering she was still alive. This is further shown when after Gran states she would never survive the journey, Grug enthusiastically states "let's do it." He seems to have developed a better grasp of humour, and while about to throw Guy across a chasm, he remarks that he wanted to "throw you away ever since I met you" and when Guy responds "is that a joke?" Grug confusingly responds "what's a joke".

His devotion to his family made him a very loyal and selfless person. For example he protected the Croods from the falling rubble, at the risk of injuring himself and saved his family by throwing them across a chasm, knowing he would not be able to join them.
