Jumping with cruelty, Hopper and his bully “biker” gang annually steals the food that the ants work so hard to collect. Hopper is embarrassed by his species’ because of his belief that ants are meant to serve grasshoppers. Like Hopper says, “It’s a bug-eat-bug world. “He’s a mean, lean eating machine and can squash an ant’s head with his foot if the food’s not on the offering stone. Hopper’s tough exterior conceals an even tougher interior and a superior intellect. The main antagonist of the film, Hopper is the leader of the grasshoppers and without him the others wouldn’t even care. A Reconstructed variation. He understands the weakness of his position against the numerically superior ants, and engages in a campaign of terror specifically to keep the ants from wising up and fighting back. This backfired as it only meant the ants snapped after too much abuse, much to his confusion.
