Griffenium is an alloy composed of wolfram that can only be generated by Venusian objet-être. Characterized by having long crystals intertwined like fibers, it has a bamboo-like strength and flexibility which is supported by a lightweight honeycomb interior.[1]


The Genome Kingdom's Bigorne and Chichevache both had or used griffenium components. The former had griffenium fangs and could fire griffenium shells from its finger cannons[1], while the jaws of its tail Pincequeue were made of griffenium.[2] Chichevache's bones were made of hollow griffenium.[1]
