Scarybug thinks they look like the lion-beasts from SNES' 'Out of This World'.
I think they look like Radiohead's very own Googly Minotaur.

Ah! I remember Out of this World. Neat looking game. Oddly I always envisioned Grues (inasmuch as I ever envisioned them) as bipedal, though.

The googly-minotaur looks about right to me. I always envisioned them as slightly comical-- never could take them all that seriously for some reason.

Your character gets to see a grue briefly in Zork: The Undiscovered Underground. They are rather goofy looking, come to think of it.

Zork:TUU was a piece of promotional freeware released to promote Zork: Grand Inquisitor back in 1997 or so. It's just a short tongue-in-cheek romp through a new part of the GUE, one of which happens to be used as a grue convention. You can probably find it online pretty easily, or IM me and I can just send you the .z5 file.

Is that the one where you get to dress in a Grue costume?
I can't remember how they described it, or maybe I just blanked it if it didn't fit with my idea, which was that they are furry with big claws and teeth and red eyes, and kinda little and scurrying.

For some reason, when I am feeling queasy, I have taken to saying "Grue" as a way to describe the feeling... haha..

How I've always pictured grues

(Link)
I've always pictured grues as bipedal creatures with dark grey fur, long nasty claws, and huge mouths filled with slavering fangs. I always did wonder how grues got in and out of the attic in the white house (of Zork I). Go up there with a light source, and no sign of any grue. Go back down, leave the light source behind, and then try to move in a direction you aren't supposed to, and you get eaten by a grue. But that's a side issue.

Ah, but they are only there in the dark, that is part of their um.. being-ness.
They don't necessarily need to not be there when there is light and then move to be there when it is dark, they just *are* there as part of the dark.
Or something ;)

I always pictured Grues being disembodied clawed hands, fang-filled maws, and red-eyes, encompassing and existing omni-presently within the limitations of the darkness.

I'm weird.
