The Three Legged Hopper is a minor ghost the Ghostbusters and Slimer trapped with relative ease.


After two hours, the Ghostbusters focused on trapping the Hopper.[2] Winston Zeddemore entered the dilapidated building occupied by the ghost and opened fire. The ghost hopped away and jumped out a window. Peter Venkman, who was waiting outside, fired a shot off and confined the ghost. Ray Stantz joined in and fired a second confinement stream. Slimer and Egon Spengler trapped it.


While not outright stating it, Ray implied the Hopper was either a Class 2 or a Class 3.[3]
