The Gold Grasshopper is a harmless Critter. It is a rare, golden recolor of an ordinary Grasshopper, with a 1/150 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.
- Although very unlikely, it is possible for two Gold Grasshoppers to spawn when the player breaks a single grass pile.
- The Bestiary entry for the Gold Grasshopper: "Rarely, critters are found coated entirely in gold! They are worth great coin to shopkeepers and fish absolutely love golden bait!"
