A Wasser Zahne (VAH-sir TSAH-neh; Ger. "water" + "teeth") is an aquatic reptilian-like Wesen that appeared in "A Reptile Dysfunction".

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

When they woge, Wasser Zahne gain blue scales all over their body, save for the face and neck, which is white in color. Apart from their fanged mouth, the most prominent physical characteristic of this species are five fish-like fins on their head, the center of which is the tallest. Monroe described them as "Skalengecky water-loving Wesen."

Wasser Zahne are highly suited for an aquatic lifestyle and can swim at very fast speeds. Should one build up enough speed, rocking a small fishing boat is an easy task. Despite being power swimmers and stronger than an average human, Wasser Zahne are much easier to deal with on land and can be overpowered easily by Grimms.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

As demonstrated by Logan Cobb, Wasser Zahne are an aggressive and unpleasant species, willing to kill people they find obnoxious, especially when motivated (or manipulated) by money. However, Logan's behavior may have been related to his drinking problem and not a standard of his species.

It is in their nature to fight or prey upon those they perceive to be weaker than them, and they will not hesitate to eliminate those individuals if they attack. When it comes to Grimms, they are wary of them, but they do not fear them, particularly if they are female.
