Hippopotamus Gorgops is a an extinct Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.


Hippopotamus Gorgops has short black hair that reaches at least behind the neck and a cutted fringe that reaches the eyebrows. Around the tips, she has a blue dye. Her eyes are red and her skin is slightly pale. As the other hippopotamus, her entire outfit is composed of two-piece diving jacket that turns blue at the tips and which is slightly open about chest-level, with a small zipper at the end, representing a hippo's tail. As an extra, she holds binoculars with blue glasses.

In Real Life

Hippopotamus gorgops

Hippopotamus gorgops also called Gorgon-eyed river horse, is an extinct species of hippopotamus. It first appeared in Africa during the late Miocene, and eventually migrated into Europe during the early Pliocene. It became extinct prior to the Ice Age. With a length of 4.3 metres (14 ft) and a shoulder height of 2.1 metres (6.9 ft) and with a weight of 3,900 kilograms (8,600 lb) H. gorgops was much larger than its living relative, H. amphibius. Unlike its living relative, H. gorgops had eyestalk-like orbits extruding above its skull, making it even easier for the creature to see its surroundings while almost fully under water (which can explain the binoculars of the Friend's design).


  • The Latin word "hippopotamus" is derived from the ancient Greek ἱπποπόταμος, hippopotamos, from ἵππος, hippos, "horse", and ποταμός, potamos, "river", meaning "horse of the river".
