Underneath His Cloak, The Sims 4's Grim Reaper is Pretty Cute

By Gita Jackson on at

Once you get over the whole “harbinger of death thing,” The Sims’s the Grim Reaper is kind of hot.

Over on the r/Sims subreddit, the simmer Corveaux said she was able to add the Grim Reaper to her family and remove his hood. The screencap she posted was of a young adult sim who was pretty cute, with pouty lips and cheekbones you could cut yourself on. This was surprising to me, because the Grim Reaper in The Sims 3 looked like a horrifying black hole.

As a journalist, I decided to investigate this for myself. So, I rolled a few sims, killed one of them, and added the Reaper to my family. After figuring out how to remove his hood—it’s actually his hair, and not a hat—I saw this adorable guy for myself.

I then gave him some hair and some non-reaper-y clothing. He cleans up pretty good, I think. You wouldn’t even know that moments before this picture was taken he ushered a young woman into the afterlife.
