The Jam Grasshopper is a large breed of parasitic grasshopper. It is one of the various types of insects that are produced by Tommyrod.


The Jam Grasshopper is a large insectoid that can grow to be around 35 centimeters in length and reach up to a human's knee in height, and when fully grown it can weigh up to 1.5 kilograms. It looks like a giant grasshopper with a small mouth and sharp teeth around the ridges of its mouth.


It grows to maturity by absorbing nutrients from its host's body. The Jam Grasshopper chooses its prey at random, eating its way in through the anus and laying its eggs in the gut.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

It can reach maturity in as little as one day by sucking all the nutrients out of its host. They are fast fliers and can attack with deadly speed and penetrate flesh whilst consuming their prey in the most horrible ways possible. Jam Grasshoppers are intelligent enough to follow specific commands, specifically those that are produced by Tommyrod. With its wings it is capable of flying quite rapidly and it is able to survive in cold climates for an unknown amount of time.


Century Soup ArcEdit

As Tommyrod and his team prepared to capture the Century Soup in Ice Hell, he summoned four of his insects, a Jam Grasshopper, an Armor Hoihoi, a Spew Weevil and a Rock Bee, to find and kill any other gourmet hunters that may be searching for the soup. All four beasts were eventually knocked out by Teppei.



  • In the manga magazine version, it was introduced as Capture Level 41, but this was later corrected in the volume version as Capture Level 40.
