A Siegbarste (ZEEG-bars-tuh; Ger. Sieg "victory" + Barst (from bersten) "burst, broken") is an ogre-like Wesen that first appeared in "Game Ogre".


When they woge, they gain rough, pale yellow, leather-like skin, a distorted ogre-like face with a long nose, larger ears, and slightly pronounced teeth. Some Siegbarstes also gain a short, scraggly beard. They also lose their hair and become more bulky. They possess dense bones, thick skin, and a high tolerance for pain, making them extremely difficult to kill. They are incredibly strong creatures and are able to easily overpower humans, Grimms, or Wesen. Their high pain threshold is medically described as congenital analgesia, and they are also known for their potent body odor and tendency to carry on vendettas "to the grave."

Despite being incredibly hard to kill, Siegbarstes are not completely invincible. Certain things, such as bullets from a hand gun and boiling water, can damage and hurt them but not kill or do enough damage to stop them. They also seem to be prone to infections, based on the fact that Oleg Stark was seen applying alcohol to a gun shot wound in his chest.


Aside from being notoriously hard to kill, Siegbarstes are also infamous for holding grudges to the grave and will not stop until either they're dead or the person who offended them is dead. Siegbarstes will use unspeakably brutal methods to kill their offenders. However, some Siegbarstes are just as capable of forming positive relationships with others such as Ivan demonstrating loyalty to Max Robbins and their co-workers. He never demonstrated any of the hostility normally associated with his kind until he and the others confronted Hedig. ("The Show Must Go On")

Tight, enclosed spaces make them irritable. ("Cold Blooded")

Due to their great power, Siegbarstes don't fear Grimms, but they hate them with an intense passion, as demonstrated when Oleg realized Nick was a Grimm.

Killing SiegbarstesEdit

Due to their durability, Siegbarstes are difficult creatures to kill, however there are a few ways:

  • High-powered elephant guns known as Siegbarste Gewehr with bullets coated in Siegbarste Gift will calcify the bones, essentially shattering the whole Ogre from the inside out.
  • One Grimm was able to tranquilize a Siegbarste using a crossbow and a single bolt to the neck filled with Schlaftrunk, a strong sedative. The Siegbarste was subsequently drawn and quartered.
  • Monroe stated it is possible to kill them with significant force, although the chances of doing so are incredibly slim.
  • It is possible that Siegbarstes can die from infections based on the fact that Oleg Stark was seen applying alcohol to a gun shot wound on his chest, implying he did not want to risk it getting infected.
  • Siegbarstes seem just as vulnerable to heat as humans. Juliette threw boiling water onto Stark’s face and he screamed in pain and ran away. Later, his face was shown to be badly burnt, showing he had no defense against high temperatures.
  • Siegbarstes can be suffocated. A Golem was able to kill two Siegbarstes by engulfing and suffocating them with clay. ("Dyin' on a Prayer")
  • Nick managed to kill one Siegbarste by throwing a dagger into his eye, impaling it straight into his brain. ("The Beginning of the End")

Excerpt from Grimm DiariesEdit



Siegbarstes are extremely rare ogre-like creatures with dense bones, thick skin and a high tolerance for pain, making them nearly impossible to kill. Aside from their terrible body odor, they are notorious for, holding grudges and won't rest until they get their revenge. While not impossible to kill, high powered elephant guns with bullets coated in Siegbarste Gift (poison) are the only way to properly kill this creature. The poison calcifies the bones, essentially shattering the whole ogre from inside out. One rarely meets a Siegbarste and lives to tell the tale.
Siegbarste gift-book

(1) Harvest the Siegbarste Gift plant, which grows on the north side of trees just below timberline in Romania.

(2) After harvesting, grind down using a mortar and pestle until the plant is reduced to a fine powder.

(3) Dilute powder with water (1 to 3 ratio). Using distillation process, reduce plant to liquid and ferment. The finished product should be amber in color and pungent in smell.

Siegbarste bones

Skin thickness in Siegbarstes is significantly thicker, on average 10 - 15 mm thick, while human skin is 2 - 3 mm thick.

Siegbarste bones are far more dense and much thicker than human bones.

The Siegbarste skin is unusually thick, making it nearly impenetrable.

I've also found that the creature has abnormally dense and thick bones. Having shot, stabbed and beaten a Siegbarste, I can say that they have an extraordinary tolerance for pain, making them nearly unstoppable. In my anatomized comparison, I show the dramatic difference in bone structure and skin thickness.

Season 1 Blu-ray Grimm Guide ProfileEdit

An extremely rare ogre-like creature with dense bones, thick skin, and a high tolerance for pain making them nearly impossible to kill. Aside from their terrible body odor, they are notorious for holding grudges and won't rest until they get their revenge. High-powered elephant guns seem to be the best choice choice weapon when battling them. Past Grimms have successfully dealt with Siegbarste by using a poison that calcifies their dense bone structure from within. A common way to expose them to this poison is by dipping bullets into the poison prior to firing.
