Jumpers are a species of Beast living underground below Antropolis City.

History

The Jumpers once lived peacefully underneath Antropolis City. After the city attempted to create an underground tunnel for transit, the beasts were disturbed, and retaliated by kidnapping the workers. When the Hero Factory was called in to investigate the disappearances, the Jumpers launched a massive invasion of the city, dragging more workers and several Heroes underground.

Jumpers in Antropolis City

The Alpha 1 Team traveled underground to rescue their comrades and stop the Jumpers. The Jumpers vigorously defended their lair, but were repeatedly rebuffed by the Heroes and their Battle Machines. The Heroes eventually encountered the Queen Beast, ruler of the Jumpers, who was holding their friends hostage. They attempted to eliminate the hostile threat by forcing the nest to fall into a pool of acid Natalie Breez, using her ability to communicate with animals, realized that the Jumpers were just defending their home, and attempted to negotiate a peaceful resolution with the Queen Beast. The Queen, agreeing with her proposal, recalled all the Jumpers from the city. However, one of the Jumpers accidentally triggered a discarded blaster and damaged the nest even further, enraging the Queen and causing her to attack the Heroes again. In the ensuing battle, the nest was completely destroyed and dropped into the pool of acid in the chamber below, along with the Queen.

Despite the apparent destruction of the Jumpers and their nest, the Heroes forbade the citizens of Antropolis City from digging any more underground tunnels. During the return trip to Makuhero City, the Heroes joked about not having to deal with the Jumpers again, not noticing that a single cocoon had been placed on board.

Abilities and Traits

The Jumpers are quadrupedal beasts with large fangs and armored plating. Jumpers are hatched from cocoons, and lived in a nest presided over by a Queen Beast who acted as a mother to the Jumpers, who obeyed her commands. Though fierce in nature, the Jumpers were not overtly aggressive, and invaded Antropolis City because they were defending their home territory based on orders from the Queen.

Jumpers come in a variety of colors and types, and some have the potential to evolve into larger creatures like Flyer Beast. The larger creatures have access to certain new abilities such as flight, while the smaller Jumpers have no specific powers.
