Grit-Shakas are magic totems used by the Gumm-Gumms.
However, due to his human physiology, Jim starts growing more arrogant, reckless, impulsive, and lack common sense. In his second duel against Bular, he loses the Grit-Shaka (which is then smashed by Bular) and he reverts back to his old self.
The Grit-Shaka appears to be a common necklace with a pendent shaped like a fanged mouth that has a glowing green crystal within it.
Grit-Shakas banish all cowardice and fear from their wielder, making them fierce and ready for battle.
If it is used by a human, it makes him/her excessively arrogant, reckless, and without impulse control. Blinky even claims that, as a Gumm-Gumm totem, that is reason enough to be fully wary of its high side effects.
