Lil Rob, regularly named as Robert by his parents, is the main protagonist and the leader of the Wild Grinders. He is based on the professional reality star and producer, Rob Dyrdek. Lil Rob has a habit of saying "WHAAAAAAAAAATTT?!" when excited or having troubles. Also, he says "AMAAAAAAZIIIING!" when becoming excited.
From the old Wild Grinders site:
Lil Rob was born in Ketterville. He bought his first skateboard from his sister's boyfriend, the leader of the Street Rats skate crew. Lil Rob wanted to be a Street Rat, and he practiced skateboarding every day. But Lil Rob was too young for that crew. As time passed, Lil Rob grew into a local shredder of the streets of Ketterville and he made lots of new skate homies along the way. With his new friends Lil Rob started his own skate crew, the WILD GRINDERS!
Lil Rob have an upbeat personality, street smarts, and wacky imagination. Lil Rob sometimes pull some pranks for her older sister, Denise, and his parents, but he is loyal to the rest of his family. Whenever at the end of some episodes, Lil Rob thinks that "everything is back to normal", but made himself wrong as he doesn't look carefully what he have done suspiciously. Whenever Stubford Hucksterball, his evil nemesis, contested him to significant but dangerous challenges, Lil Rob encounters them as stealth as possible, until he will make sure not to be upset or anger his family. He infinitely never surrenders, after Stubford started beating him or the others up. Lil Rob always beat Stubford in a contest.
In Grindermania, Lil Rob uses his lead vocals.
Lil Rob's Gnarly Craft usertag is Sir Grinder Boardslide, but it was terminated when Lil Rob is inside of Gnarly Craft.
Lil Rob's stance is goofy, and he prefers to skate on ledges, bumps, and rails. Older information include that he enjoys "anything with ENERGY… from Rock to Hip Hop"
- Gene-Lil Rob's father. He can call his dad by his first name.
- Patty-Lil Rob's mother. He can call his mom by her first name.
- Denise-Lil Rob's 15-year-old sister. She is a bossy type of relative and keeps an eye on Lil Rob. Lil Rob has a dislike of Denise when she is provoking him, for example: singing the "Fro-Yo Mama Frozen Yogurt" theme song, and letting Goggles unite with her by texting Lil Rob's negative consequences on his cell phone.
- Meaty-Lil Rob's right-handed pooch. He is also a skater.
As told in Swaggerless, Meaty proclaims his and Lil Rob history how they become friends in childhood. When Stubford arrives by both of them meanly, his juice was spilled on his machine, then crashed to Meaty. Lil Rob saves Meaty, and led Stubford, which he will be his villain "forever".
Lil Rob wears a blue shirt with sleeves attached. He also wears a red cap, but uses his red cap-styled helmet when skating. His skateboard was based on a alien logo that the real Rob Dyrdek have owned.
Lil Rob's clothing design is later re-modified in a Halloween inspiration, such as orange and black colors, and a scary-faced pumpkin icon on the center. This is only used in the teaser of Texas Skateboard Horrorland Zombie Activity 3.
In Shark Attack, Lil Rob wears a scuba diving suit in underwater.
In Lil Red Riding Rob, Rob wears a red shirt with a hood that can be visible in one episode. This is the temporary appearance in this episode.

When Rob travels to another dimension with a portal in A World Gone Rad-Awesome, Rob's opposite form was even Stubford's merchant, and was more stupid as Officer Lackowski. The opposite form wears a white shirt with a red small tie and a blue vest attached. he also wears the same red cap and shoes as the original Lil Rob wears, and wears blue pull-up slacks. This is the temporary appearance in this episode.
Unlike Lil Rob's appearance in the TV series, the toyline presents Rob's hat and shirt, printed as "Wild Grinders" in cursive. Another toyline product shows that he has a serious face. On the gold edition, Rob's original outfit was changed into gold.
The second appearance shows Lil Rob, wearing a red shirt that a "WG" was printed on the lower right on his shirt and wears blue tennis shoes. He has a white hat with another "WG" logo printed in blue.
