There are many hoppers. Grass. Sky. Fire. Heart. And the sandhopper.

If sand needs hopping, here's your man animal.

If sand needs hopping, here’s your man animal.

Special powers

The sandhopper’s signature move is leaping high into the air. Of all jumpers, it is one of the greatest at the act of jumping high.


Though it jumps very high, the sandhopper has no directional control while doing so. I mean, beyond the vague idea of “up.” It’s got that one down. I mean, not “down.” You get the idea.

Beyond that, the sandhopper doesn’t know much.

Also, one antenna is much longer than the other. How dare it.

Number of legs

In an unprecendented moment for Rate Every Animal, I don’t actually know. I researched for entire minutes, and was unable to find the answer. I’m sorry I let you down.

Prize possession

The sandhopper’s prize possession is an Easy-Bake Oven with “THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS” written on it.

Potent quotables

“My favorite band is Various Artists. Only right answer. ‘Variety is the spice of life.’ – Anonymous.” – the sandhopper

What if it fought a bear?

The bear has no reason to fear the sandhopper’s random jumping.

Is it noble?


Final rating

I find this dim-witted, uncontrollably-blasting-into-the-air crustacean rather charming, really. That asymmetrical antenna is gonna drive me crazy, though.
