An important participant of the German Let's Play community, Gronkh started recording LPs in 2009.

He gained most of his fandom from his ongoing Minecraft Let's Play, which greatly increased the popularity of both himself and Minecraft in Germany. Contrary to popular belief, though, he did not define the Let's Play genre in Germany; he merely popularized it among more casual viewers.

His LPs are quite un-Walkthrough-like compared to others, even though he hardly ever offscreens anything. His knowledge about the mechanics of the game he's playing are often limited or non-existant, but he usually makes up for it with general videogame savvy. His commentary about equally consists of review-like opinions on strength and weaknesses of the game, witty illustration of Fridge Logic, random talk, opinions and Real Life observations, and puns he apologizes for immediately afterwards.

Gronkh is one of the administrators of the MMORPG site playmassive.de and the gaming site playnation.de. Together with some other PlayNation administrators and affiliated Lets Players, he publishes his videos on his website gronkh.de along with Youtube.

Certainly not to be confused with Gonk or Gronk.

Tropes found in Gronkh's Let's Plays:

 Okay, he'll be beaten black and blue, get killed and have to read many comments.

 Female characters in MMORPGs can be distinguished by the fact that the better their armour is, the more skin is shown off.

  Disgusting abominable spiders carrying money!

  It hisses and grills like a briquette in the evening. Even though I don't know whether a briquette in the evening actually makes any sounds.

  • Player Tic: Repeatedly choosing the same dialogue options in RPGs that allow this.
  • Pungeon Master
  • Real Is Brown: He criticized this here.
  • Running Gag:
    • Him being "Almost Twelve Years Old (TM)", along with his "Gregor Onkh" identity.
    • Minecraft:
      • Using a shovel to "shear"/spank sheep. Once shears were introduced, their sprite in his custom texture pack by Honeyball was changed to what he called a "groping glove" to reflect this.
      • Chickens being evil.
      • A certain mispronunciation of "gravel", originating from his uncertainity on which word to use for it in German early in his Let's Play.
      • "Gronkh, you missed some coal!", originating from his viewers' annoying tendency of attempting to be helpful and telling him about ressources he purposedly ignored.
    • Mischief with snow golems as a stinger in Minecraft prerelease specials.
    • "Let me through, I'm a medic!"
    • All moonlit nights in Dragon Age II caused him to ask "Where is Batman?".
    • Fenris not cleaning up the corpses in his home in the course of several years.
    • In his "Adventures at the Riding Stables" LP, "Or the horse will die."
    • "CopyCopyCopyCopy", referring to the numerous backup saves he made in order to horribly screw around with the scenery in the course of experiments, in a manner similar to Raocow's "That was a demo."
  • Sarcasm Mode: Shows up rather snidely here.
  • Self-Deprecation: He often calls his own commentary "pointless rambling" or similar.
  • Shoot the Medic First: Applies to other sorts of casters as well in Dragon Age II.
  • Sinister Geometry: Inverted; he loves symmetry and tries to apply it in everything he builds in Minecraft.
  • Sir Swearsalot: Yes. Mostly mild swearing though, but he (occasionally) tries to avoid even "Crap!" since some fans complained about it, leading to some awkward examples of Last-Second Word Swap or Bowdlerization.
  • Sophisticated As Hell:

  Idiot dogs!
