Flea Men are the hopper enemies that appear in most recent Castlevania games. Like all hoppers, Flea Men tend to hop around in short or long movements back and forth. They maintain hunched backs like most common hoppers but have more flea-like characteristics, with tiny heads and arms, and sometimes antennae.


Some Flea Men come armed with different weaponry. The Armored Fleaman has armor that must be destroyed first and wields a large axe which can deal out large amounts of damage. Flea Men usually wield twin axe blades in each hand in the 3D games (Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness). Flea Men known as Rippers will often throw blood-soaked knives.

Like other hoppers, Flea Men can be dropped by an aerial enemy, either a Bat or an Eagle. They have several additional methods of transporting themselves around. In some games, instead of being dropped by eagles, Flea Men will mount them and ride about, and are instead referred to as Flea Riders. They also will ride White Dragons, where in that case they are referred to as Dragon Riders. In Symphony of the Night, if Alucard knocks a Flea Man off of a free floating White Dragon (or Wyrm, called Orobourous), it will be released and help him destroy any other enemies in the room out of gratitude. A reference to this can be seen in Dawn of Sorrow, where if a White Dragon familiar is summoned, a minimized Soma will be riding it.

Some Flea Men are "born" inside of WakWak Trees and will pop out of bubbles on their branches when they are fully grown.
