==Appearance==
 
Grim Grips are like floating bulbs shining with strong blue light. When at close range, they resemble floating tops. They are roughly the size of a ball, and they were originally untouchable by human hands, but they can be grappled by those with [[Devil Bringer|demonic hands]] like [[Nero]].
 
   
Some of these Grim Grips take different forms when filled with an alternate energy. Such examples are the "Grim Bats"; bat-shaped objects summoned by [[Sanctus]] to serve as protection, or to attack a target at will. These "Grim Bats" may be able to retain their Grim Grip shape temporarily while shooting at them, which makes them immobile for a short amount of time.

Sanctus, in both his normal and Diabolica forms, can summon flying miniature demons that Nero can stun and use similar to Grim Grips.
