"My master, the gremlins and I have failed you. The rest of my comrades were blinded and killed by a gray creature, who is now in possession of the staff."
—The brown gremlin reporting his failure to Shadow

The brown gremlin was a minor antagonist in the 2013 Life's a Fish and Then You Fry fan fiction story Quest of Time. The brown gremlin was one of the many gremlins created by the mysterious entity Shadow and one of Mohawk's foot soldiers. The brown gremlin was also the only gremlin to survive their mission to find the Staff of Time.


Quest of Time

The brown gremlin was one of the many gremlins created by the mysterious entity Shadow, who ordered them to find the Staff of Time after Mohawk was appointed their commander. Brown and his fellow gremlins found the staff hidden away in the basement of a museum in New York City, where he and the other gremlins were unsuspectingly attacked by Frank and his fellow aliens. After the other gremlins were exposed to light from Frank's flashlight, brown was the only gremlin who survived. The brown gremlin confronted Frank before he escaped, attempting to claim the staff. This led to the brown gremlin's easy defeat at the hands of Frank, who punched him in the stomach and sent him flying down a corridor in the museum.

The brown gremlin later regained his consciousness and reported back to the Great Chamber of Time, where he informed Shadow and Mohawk of his and the other gremlins' failure to retrieve the Staff of Time. This was much to Mohawk's disgust, who grabbed the brown gremlin by the throat and attempted to choke him while ranting about his failure. The brown gremlin was only saved by Shadow's orders for Mohawk to cease his abuse to his comrade. The brown gremlin's fate afterwards is unknown.

  • The brown gremlin is possibly a reincarnation of the Brain Gremlin, as he displays a higher intellect of intelligence than the other gremlins in Quest of Time, including Mohawk.
  • NECA produced a figure of the brown gremlin in series 2 of their Gremlins line. The stock image of the figure shows the hands using a generic gremlin hand hold, however the final toy actually uses the same hand molds from the Phantom Gremlin figure.
