The Gold Grasshopper is a harmless Critter. It is a rare, golden recolor of an ordinary Grasshopper, with a 0.25*1/400 (0.25%) / 0.67*1/150 (0.67%) chance of spawning in place of the ordinary version (when the player breaks grass piles).

As with all other gold critters, it can be caught with a Bug Net and sold for 10. It can be used as bait and along with the other golden bait critters has a bait power of 50%, the highest usable value among bait.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer or its upgrades.
