  • Leap n' Slam: Difficult to avoid, Leap n' Slam allows the dune buggy to jump high in the air and land hard on top of an enemy. Be careful when executing this attack in enclosed spaces, because you can sustain damage by hitting obstacles like ceilings and bridges. Grasshopper can easily be taken out of her special attack by a well aimed enemy attack.

Speed: 3/5

License Plate: JUMPIN (Jumpin', a refernce to its name Grasshopper.)

Twisted Metal: Head-On Edit


Name: Grasshopper (Meyers Manx)

Special: Body Slam - Grasshopper jumps from the ground and smashes her enemy. You will see a green rectangle locked below the target, that means your ready to do her special. If successful, your target will be thrown far away. When the special is upgraded, press the fire button repeatedly and a few beams of acid hits your target before Grasshopper smashes into her enemy.


  • Grasshopper's upgraded special in TM:HO, which involves tapping the fire button to shoot beams of acid whilst airbourne, may be a shoutout to Pit Viper, a vehicle with a similar appearence from the first game.
  • Additionally, it should be noted that Pit Viper was replaced by Grasshopper in Twisted Metal 2. This can be justified by hacking Grasshopper's texture file. Pit Viper's Acid Spit sprites still exist in the file, and are complete, but are unused. However, it is possible to see this in-game on the PC port by texture swapping Grasshopper with certain characters (Axel is confirmed.) Because of this, it can be said Pit Viper was originally going to appear, but was taken out sometime in development. To further prove this theory, Grasshopper's files in the PC port are, respectively, initialed "PV".
  • Grasshopper, Mr. Slam and Spectre are the only vehicles that have been piloted by ghosts.
  • Grasshopper is one of the only recurring vehicles to have the same special in all it's appearances, along with Spectre and Twister.
