It's like the Next Avengers movie: Ultron, the villain, says he killed ALL the Avengers, but actually Iron Man, Vision and Hawkeye survived. And just with Iron Man we have enough to show that there will always be one major hero.
And I know: Grim must have known because he is the Grim Reaper. But you must remember that in the original Cartoon many of his victims survived and he never tried to kill them again (example: general Skarr) Finally, it was the bussiest day of all. He could be distracted with the corpses of the others.
Other theory: Grim let Blossom live, so she could fix things. We must remember that, after all, Grim has a heart
Of course the world can louse all the major heros. When I say major heros I'm talking about heros in Magaville that are really relevant to the story, i.e. The PPG, Dexter. I'm not including people like Raven, who, while heros in their own right, don't seem to play pivotal roles in the outcome of anything important.
The cartoon does pose some problems to considering Death to be absolute. Your right people do survive Grim. One example, that also address Grim's heart is Minnie. Minnie did remove her left eye, and Nergal said that means Minnie should die, so what was going on there. Minnie is a zombie (type thing) so Minnie did die, so Grim made the choice not to save his own daughter but previously made the choice to save Blossom? The thing is that we should assume that when people die, Grim takes their soul, and they stay dead, no questions asked AT ALL. If we don't assume that then death becomes meaningless. If we reevaluate Grim saying that the heros fell one by one it means that all the heros are fair game to appear again in some form.

Grim may very well mean that the remaining "major heroes" present in this flashback at that moment in time are now dead (including Blossom, if that really is her); therefore, his statement isn't false or misleading so much as depressing as it tells us that all their efforts have been for nothing, something we should already know given Mimi's ultimate fate.
Hey, That's actually a good and possible theory!
Not exactly, depending on how you interpenetrate Grim's speech. His speech looks like it's seting up the scene here, and what we are seeing is the ragtag group that remained. You could look at it as, this being before all the heros fell but that again means that anything is fair game, and we have nothing to work with.
