Grasshopper is a loyal student of Kwai Chang Crane.
When his master Crane went missing, Grasshopper searched diligently to find him. His efforts eventually lead him to Sonic the Hedgehog and his buddy Tails who tell him that Crane is being held captive in Dr. Robotnik's fortress. Grasshopper then joined Sonic and Tails and helped them defeat the robo-ninjas. In the end they rescued Crane (who didn't really need rescuing) and they all escaped Robotnik's fortress before it was destroyed.
- Grasshopper is named after Kwai Chang Caine, the main character from the TV series Kung Fu, who was nicknamed "Grasshopper" by his Master Po. Grasshopper's master, Kwai Chang Crane, was named after the same character.
