GRUB manual states, that multiple devices can be selected for GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT, separated by spaces.

However, using GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT="console serial" in /etc/default/grub makes the grub-mkconfig exit with error.

From a quick look into the code, it is apparent, that the script relies on a fact, that there is only a single device in this definition. That clashes with the manual and even with GRUB itself.

By an obvious and simple hack in the case statement, I was able to satisfy my needs, but that's far from a general solution.

This "single-device" approach made it also to the rule /etc/grub.d/00_header which I managed to fix quite nicely, so I dare to attach a patch.
