Ripp Grunt (later known as Corporal Ripp Grunt) is the middle child of General Buzz Grunt and the late Lyla Grunt His older brother is Tank Grunt and his younger brother is Buck Grunt. He works part-time in the Slacker career track, as a Gas Station Attendant.
Unlike General Buzz and Tank, Ripp does not have an interest in the military. Also, he is the only member of the household to have any Playful points. Ripp does not get along well with his father and Tank but he is friends with Buck. He is friends with Ophelia Nigmos and has a high relationship with Johnny Smith, though they are not friends yet. He is a Romance Sim but he doesn't have any romances when the family is first played.
At the start of the game, he is 8 days away from becoming an adult.
Ripp has brown hair, but also carries a recessive allele for blonde hair. There is a chance that his children will be blonde, even if the mother has a dominant hair color (brown or black).
He also was taught all his toddler skills by Lyla, but grew up badly. This may indicate that he had no particular wants to learn them.
He is also featured in The Sims 2 (PSP) as an adult. Evidently, his relationship with Tank has gotten worse since The Sims 2. Ripp is the vendor for Division 47. Strangely, while Ripp has brown hair and dark blue eyes in The Sims 2, he has black hair and brown eyes in the PSP version.
Ripp's secrets from The Sims 2 (PSP):

- (Intimate): Ripp lost much of his body hair in an experimental blow-dryer incident.
- (Dark): Ripp's debilitating fear of toilets was caused by one too many swirlies as a child.
- (Innocent Victim): Ripp's brother beats him up regularly, even though they are both adults.
