i think the unnaturally big fanbase for grillby’s character is pretty neat. he didn’t do anything other than bring out your order. he doesn’t talk unless you do something special. he’s just a background character that doesn’t do much story-wise. but so many people love him. this is a little off tangent but you could have little to no impact on someone’s life and people will still love you. you don’t have to do a lot to get people to love you.
