Grodus Xs are the protectors of Sir Grodus. Up to four of them can appear, and they raise Grodus's defense for each one. If all four of them appear, Grodus is invincible.
Grodus Xes act like Mini Yux, which form barriers to protect their Yux. However, Grodus Xes superficially resemble Yux more than their miniatures and can also cause damage. Though Grodus Xes are small like Mini Yux, their overall shape looks like a Yux with stumps in place of its arms. A Grodus X's single eye also looks like a Yux's, though Yux themselves have two eyes (as do Mini Yux, though theirs look different).
