The Grasshoppers are a group of Hopper's minions in the film A Bug's Life, bullying the ants into collecting food for them. When they are not terrorizing the insects of Ant Island, the grasshoppers are seen in Hopper's hideout. Towards the end of the film, the grasshoppers take complete control of Ant Island after Flik along with the Circus Bugs was wrongfully banished by Atta and her mother until the ant colony finally fights back with Hopper being killed by the real bird and take their island back. They retreat (without Hopper) defeated. After this, it is not known what came of the grasshoppers or where they escaped to; however, Molt joins P.T. Flea's circus act.
Known grasshoppers are: Hopper (the leader), Molt (Hopper's brother), Thumper (Hopper's pet), Axel and Loco.
They are based on the bandits from Seven Samurai and The Magnificent Seven, with Hopper being the equivalent of Calvera from the latter movie.
