The Neverending Story Wiki

Ygramul is a character in Michael Ende's novel The Neverending Story.


Ygramul is a creature who lives in the Land of Dead Mountains.

“Better the huntsman

Should perish in the swamps,

For in the Dead Mountains

There is a deep, deep chasm,

Where dwelleth Ygramul the Many,

The horror of horrors.”
