* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: He says that promising mother on her deathbed not to kill Molt is the only reason he has not done so. This could, however, not really be a matter of loving his mother and instead be more of a matter of [[IGaveMyWord simply keeping a promise]], especially seeing how it just makes him more dangerous, see BadBoss above

* PragmaticVillainy: Zig-zagged: when some of the other grasshoppers point out to Hopper that they have enough food and an easy life without needing to exploit and oppress the ants for food, he kills them and tells the rest that they oppress the ants for its own sake, not for the food. However, Hopper's point is that the oppression is pragmatic if you take a longer view: while individual ants are no threat to the grasshoppers, the ants as a group outnumber the grasshoppers by hundreds to one. If the grasshoppers let up on the pressure at all, the ants may realize their own power, at which point the grasshoppers' leisurely lifestyle ends.

* PetTheDog: Though the ants had messed up badly in giving his grasshoppers food, he's ultimately willing to give the ants another chance, though he makes the ants double the amount of food they would have given him to compensate. Subverted as he did that only to get what he wanted and to to play the generous role.

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: He is regularly ridiculed and insulted for wasting his time on creative thinking and inventing instead of gathering food for the Offering.

to:

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: He is regularly ridiculed and insulted for wasting his time on creative thinking and inventing instead of gathering food for the Offering. What makes this more understandable than usual for this trope is that he is very much TheKlutz and causes often more harm than good with his blunders. This is deconstructed because the others critisism of his acts blind them to the facts that he is actually right about.

* EvilIsPetty: When his big elaborate plan fails, he settles for mercilessly beating up Flik and trying to kill him. In fact, his only reason for going back was to kill one ant who was no apparent threat and only hurt his pride.
