|Dragon Quest Monster|
Art by Akira Toriyama
|First Appearance||Dragon Quest VII|
In terms of appearance, the grinade is identical to the rockbomb, but a yellowish shade.
Grinades are generally the weakest of their rocky relations. These smiling yellow bold boulders must rely on physical attacks, since they have yet to develop the spark that allows them to explode or self-sacrifice like their brethren. They allow adventurers to let their guards down and then save up their strength to launch themselves at their foes, full force by using their focus strength skill. Sometimes they just simple spend a turn just staring, and others they find something funny enough to blindly fling themselves at the enemy, cackling madly.

|Game||Dragon Quest IX|
|Description||These suspiciously sprightly stones merrily maul opponents, beaming all the while, and bring their boulder buddies into battle.|
Although rough and ready in their younger years, the hard edges wear off with time, and most make well-rounded adults.
Grinade is taken from grin, a type of smile, and grenade, an explosive used in warfare. This naming is presently a misnomer, as none of the grinade's current appearances show it able to sacrifice itself in any way, unlike its relatives.
