|Dragon Quest Monster|
Art by Akira Toriyama
|First Appearance||Dragon Quest VII|
The Choppy hopper is a monster that appears exclusively in Dragon Quest VII. It can be found in the Emberdale region in the past, Burnmont in both the past and present, the L'Arca region in the past, and Grotta del Sigillo in both the past and present.
The choppy hopper is a green bipedal monstrous marsupial with a purple peculiar underside and a pair of long black horns on the top of its head. It wickedly wields a sharp slicing scimitar in each hand and oddly alternates between hurriedly hopping on each foot every single second in battle. Using its powerful hind legs, it can launch a deadly lunging leaping slash attack on unsuspecting adventurers, dealing extra damage.
