Now let me tell you how things are supposed to work: The sun grows the food, the ants pick the food, the grasshoppers eat the food...
Hopper to Princess Atta

The Grasshoppers are a group of Hopper's minions and the supporting antagonists of 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. Toward 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 and take their island back. They retreat (without Hopper) defeated. After this, it is unknown what became of the grasshoppers or where they escaped to; however, Hopper is devoured by the bird's chicks after Flik and Princess Atta lure him to her nest, and Molt joins P.T. Flea's circus act.

Trivia

  • They are based on the bandits from Seven Samurai and The Magnificent Seven, with Hopper being the equivalent of Calvera from the latter movie.
