    Grasshopper Users
    A-Rank
    Kei Tachikawa
    Tachikawa employs Grasshopper to reach distant enemies and, combined with Senkū, it gives him an effective range not unlike a Shooter's.[1] Tachikawa first uses this trigger off-screen to take down a self-destructing Ilgar in Chapter 48[2], however in Episode 23 of the anime, he was shown leaping.[3]
    Shun Midorikawa
    Midorikawa uses this Trigger to maneuver around the battlefield in the air and to increase his speed without warning, surprising the opponent. He is widely considered a very skilled user. He can utilize Grasshopper effectively even indoors.
    Pinball (乱反射(ピンボール), Pinbōru; ?,  lit. Diffuse Reflection): After creating multiple platforms around the opponent, Midorikawa bounces from one to another at very high speed while slashing at the disoriented target with Scorpion.[4] Between Midorikawa and Yūma, Kō Murakami regards the former as the better user of this technique.[5]
    B-Rank
    Yūma Kuga
    Yūma was able to employ Grasshopper in combat with great efficacy the day after it was explained to him,[6] possibly thanks to his practice with Bound, and soon after became capable of fighting while in mid-air.[7] Not only he quickly mastered its basic applications, his originality with this Trigger earned him Kōhei Izumi's admiration.[8] His small build gives him an advantage over heavier opponents in aerial combat.[9] Yūma can use this Trigger for quick dodges even while airborne,[10] for hit-and-run tactics,[11] to build up momentum before a strike,[12] and to outmaneuver the enemy, cutting off their retreat.[13] He also utilizes it to rapidly cross the map in order to assist teammates in need,[14] as well as to distantiate himself from troublesome foes, which he primarily does by jumping upwards.[15] While this generally allows him to get out of Attacker range, it makes him an easy target for Snipers.[15] By feinting the jump, however, he can catch the opponent off-guard.[16] In addition, Grasshopper compensates for any impairment to his mobility, such as injured legs[17] or terrains that make walking difficult.[18] In need, he can also propel himself by touching a pad with his hand.[19] Yūma's less conventional applications of this Trigger include using a platform to hurl debris at the target,[20] to boost an ally[21] and to launch an enemy in the air,[22] where they are vulnerable to subsequent attacks.[23]
    Pinball (乱反射(ピンボール), Pinbōru; ?,  lit. Diffuse Reflection): After creating multiple platforms around the opponent, Yūma bounces from one to another at very high speed while slashing at the disoriented target with Scorpion.[5] Between Midorikawa and Yūma, Kō Murakami regards the former as the better user of this technique.[5]
    Kōji Oki
    Oki uses Grasshopper to rapidly scale tall buildings and get in sniping position,[24][25] as well as to swiftly cross the map, whether to take his next target by surprise[26] or to escape a pursuer. In the latter case, the Trigger is not as effective over longer distances, but the initial lead can facilitate reuniting with his teammates.[27] Oki has shown enough skill with this Trigger to summon two pads consecutively, activating the second before the acceleration from the first decreases — enough for his trajectory to turn into a parable,[26] signifying a change of direction at high speed. He is first seen using it in Chapter 152 (Episode 83 in the anime).
    Kai Minamisawa
    A Trigger which summons repelling pads to enable aerial mobility. Minamisawa can use it to control his position in a fight, such as to escape from powerful enemies and reunite with his teammates. He has shown enough skill with this Trigger to summon two pads consecutively, activating the second before the acceleration from the first decreased enough for his trajectory to turn into a parable,[28] signifying a change of direction at high speed. Minamisawa is first seen using Grasshopper in Chapter 187 (Episode 83 in the Anime).
    Yutaka Kashio
    Kashio uses Grasshopper to jump out of the way of attacks which he would not be able to avoid otherwise[29] as well as to change his position in mid-air. He can cast it with enough precision to allow others to step on it.[30] He has been seen casting only undivided pads.[30][29] Kashio is first seen using Grasshopper in Chapter 154 (Episode 84 in the Anime).
    Noboru Koarai
    Although this Trigger is not part of Koarai's normal set, he often adds it to improve his mobility on certain maps when the terrain makes movement on foot unfavorable for his opponents.[31][32][33] He can also use it to cut off an enemy and trap them between himself and Okudera,[34] or more generally to control his position while airborne.[35] The two Attackers are skilled enough to briefly hold their own against Yūma in an aerial battle.[32][36] Koarai is first seen using Grasshopper in Chapter 168 (Episode 68 in the anime).
    Tsuneyuki Okudera
    Although this Trigger is not part of Okudera's normal set, he often adds it to improve his mobility on certain maps when the terrain makes movement on foot unfavorable for his opponents.[31][32][33] Koarai and Okudera are skilled enough to briefly hold their own against Yūma in an aerial battle.[32][36] Okudera is first seen using Grasshopper in Episode 68.
    Yōko Katori
    Katori is able to utilize this Trigger well enough to keep up with Yūma and fight him in mid-air,[7] remarkable feats both. In need, she can propel herself by placing her palm on a platform instead of her foot, which allows her to move sideways more quickly.[37]
