The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • Hop Floppers are useful for moving across areas quickly, as they allow the player to use the faster speed of running and jumping compared to just running, to their advantage. On top of this, Hop Floppers allow for much faster movement while swimming and jumping.

  • When picked up and dropped / thrown, all Hop Floppers become Drift Hop Floppers, as well the Drift Hop Floppers being the icon for all Hop Floppers.
  • The Drift Hop Flopper uses the same color scheme as Drift, and related outfits.
  • Consuming a Hop Flopper, holding Iron Man's Repulsor Gauntlets and placing a Crash Pad on a ramp allowed the player to obtain insane height and speed (enough to propel the player across the entire map in seconds), due to the combined anti gravity effects of all three items.
    • This is currently not possible due to Iron Man's Repulsor Gauntlets and the Crash Pad (as an item) being vaulted. It is also not possible in Creative as all Marvel Superpowers are not available in Creative.
  • The Hop Flopper resembles a real-life salmon, which are known for hopping upstream during salmon runs.
