Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic folklore figure described as "half-goat, half-demon", who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts.
He is hairy, usually brown or black, and has the cloven hooves and horns of a goat. His long, pointed tongue lolls out, and he has fangs. Krampus carries chains, thought to symbolize the binding of the Devil by the Christian Church. The chains are sometimes accompanied with bells of various sizes. Sometimes Krampus appears with a sack or a basket strapped to his back; this is to cart off evil children for drowning, eating, or transport to Hell. Some of the older versions make mention of naughty children being put in the bag and taken away.
In the gameIn Grinch's game, his back was turned from John, as he yelled Goat Face at him. He turns and sees that John had a red rag in his hands. Instinktley he lowers his head and starts rubbing the ground with his hove and attacks John. Instead of hitting the human, his horns were stuck to a plank, which Grinch cut them off with an axe. When he gets his short horns out of the plank, he turns into a little white goat. He raised his hand at him, but after inspecting his hands and feet, he soon realized he wasn't the same again. He looks at Grinch with a smiling kids face after he has been caught, and ran away.
- In Grinch's game, he had orange spiky horns, blue muscular skin and body, a yellow bag behind him, a dark blue beard on his chin, orange devilish-tail and black hoves. But after he has been turned to a small goat, he was all white with grey short horns and a small fuzzy tail. He could also stand on two feet in his miniature figure.
- The Grinch had to put two magic seads on each side and water them with enough water to make them grow into trees. He then pu a large plank in the middle of them.
