A big bully of a grasshopper, he and his grasshopper gang force a colony of ants to give them food each summer and winter. And in return, the grasshoppers will not kill them. Quite frankly, the ants would like to rebel, but can't because Hopper made a deal with the Friends to gain intimidance and somewhat enhanced strength in exchange for the souls of those ants who do try to rebel and fail miserably. Flik, one of the ants, wanted to recruit an army of warrior bugs so that Hopper's tyranny over his colony would end, and in the end found the courage to lead the overthrow of Hopper.
His Toontown counterpart was not malicious, however, he was possessed by the spirit of this one during "It's Tough to Be a Bug!" as he told the audience about bugs being considered monsters.
