The Gronk

Most often a particular character, but sometimes also referencing an entire race, the Gronk we most usually see is a companion of Johnny Alpha and Wulf, who works as their medic. Gronks are timid, nervous creatures who tend to faint at the first sign of trouble. Despite this being a core characteristic, the Gronk was rewritten during the Strontium Dogs sequence as a fearless, gun-toting warrior. Also, there was an evil terminator version called the Gronkinator.
