Straight out of the marsh pond ghettos of planet Ribbit IV comes the amphibious B.I.G., also known as Nate Frogg, but mostly known as Froggy G. Growing up in the baddest part of town, struggle and incarceration surrounded Froggy from an early age. Taking part in his first swim-by shootout as a tadpole, Froggy seemed destined for a life of crime and prison.
After a bloody gangwar with the neighbouring Toad-unit posse ended in a 5 year jail sentence, Froggy G vowed to end his gangsta ways. Instead, Froggy G started earning his keep as a beatboxing streetdancer and rapper, hoping to be picked up by a major record label. Unfortunately, his tracks titled "Pond Pimpin", "Froggin' dirty" and "Motherfrogger bounce!" didn't earn him much.
In order to make some money, and then make some mo', Froggy G became a hired gun. Combining his shoot-out experiences with lethal watery dance-moves and beatboxing techniques, Froggy G now spins and dashes across intergalactic battlefields, droppin foo's left and right with his fishgun, hoping to make some money to take his momma out of the hood.

"Ready? Set! GO!!! 16 times Space Olympic gold medalist Froggy G is here to farm some gold with perfect technique and a brutal training schedule. Add to that a pair of supertight swimming trunks and we've got a clear winner. The Grandmaster Splash skin!" - Official Steam Store Description
This skin gives Froggy G dark green skin and fish fins. He also wears a gold medal with the Awesomenauts emblem on it, along with new swimming gear. The Bolt .45 Fish-gun also gains a new color scheme, with stripes instead of polka dots.
The Twister Tweeters explosion effect is changed to a "ring" effect.
"Them superfly leather suede jeans. That's Pimpin'! That black belt of bling. That's Pimpin'! Them "eyes on the money" glasses. That's Pimpin'! That gold 'n diamond "smack you fools" cane. That's Pimpin'! Pimpy G is pimpin' and you know it." - Official Steam Store Description
This skin gives Froggy G a striped hat, a new clock necklace, a coat with polka-dotted fur, star-shaped tinted glasses and a pair of white jeans. The Bolt .45 Fish-gun is completely golden, with a cane below it, and gems for eyes.
New gem particle effects are added to the Tornado.

Tips & Tactics
- Use your high mobility to initiate and escape all kinds of situation and to cover more than one lane as much as you can. Your low health won't be enough if the enemy team gets to you.
- Consider purchasing Swirling Octopus Cartridges if you are having trouble keeping yourself in the lane and farming safely.
- Using your Splash Dash in a way that you end right next to your target will give you a larger window of opportunity to damage your enemy with Tornado or the Bolt .45 Fish-gun.
- Hammer Pants upgrade description explains that you must "aim at the ground to execute". In reality, the effect will occur if you hit any kind of terrain, including walls, the ceiling and enemy structures (even Skree's totem will do the trick!).
- Both Can't Touch This and Right Back At Ya! allow Froggy G to damage turrets with little to no punishment.
- Turbo Tape can turn Tornado into a powerful chasing and escaping tool.
- If you purchase Mutant Worms: Limited Ninja Edition, try to attack between skills to make the most use of it.
- If Froggy G is your initiator, you might wanna save your more powerful abilities for when he uses Splash Dash, but be ready to help him in case he misses!
- Froggy G is naturally vulnerable to Crowd Control. Try and protect him from it if you can.
- Froggy G has very low health, making burst and crowd control particularly dangerous for him.
- While Froggy G is immune to all forms of direct damage during Splash Dash, debuffs will still be applied to him.
- As a brawler, Froggy G excels in one versus one combat. Be sure to stick to your team and avoid being lined/grouped up as to make sure at least one team member avoids Splash Dash's stun and is ready to punish him for it.
- If Froggy G is using Right Back At Ya!, stop using attacks that can be reflected until it wears off. See a list of what can be reflected and what cannot here.
- Tornado can be interrupted by some crowd control effects, like stuns. Rubber Ducky Choker and Cortex Tank's ministun are particularly good for this.
- If an enemy Froggy G is constantly using his Splash Dash to attack, save a Crowd Control effect to punish him afterwards or maybe even kill him.
