Grue Repellents are items of great use to scare away grues to prevent attacks, and even death. As everyone knows, grues are afraid of light and will disappear at the slightest sight of it. Even a small lit match would help repel a grue, but also there has been certain magical items that helped to repel grues.

Commonly Known Grue Repellents Edit


Frobozz Magic Grue RepellentEdit

The most popular item from the Frobozz Magic Grue Repellent Company, is a spray, wipe and/or ointment made of sand that can be applied to repel grues. It was reported that whoever used the product contributed to the 31% decrease of grue related deaths, making the grues flee and not get anywhere close to 70 feet away from the users.

The Frobozz Magic Grue Repellent products comes in many scents including:

  • Old socks
  • Burning rubber
  • Rotting eggs
  • Dead fish
  • Swamp gas
  • Three-week-old meatloaf
  • Gym locker
  • Wet dog
  • Mint

Users often complained about the odors, so a Free-Noseplugs-With-Every-Can campaign was launched, in association with the Frobozz Magic Noseplugs Company. It ran for one month, increasing sales by 92%.

MatchesEdit

Matches were a courtesy item given away by the Chuckles Comedy Club in the Cliffs of Depression. They were great last minute use items, giving the user the ability to run to well lit areas before a grue attack. Unfortunately, they were hard to use in the dark and if the user dropped them in a panic attack, death was inevitable.
