Role in the Plot

Episode 1 - Savanna Area

Hippopotamus first appears when Serval and Kaban head towards water hole. She rises up from the bottom of the pond, surprising Kaban. She asks where they are going and who Kaban is. After Serval responds, she advises the two about the Ceruleans and tries to identify what animal Kaban is, but is unable to. She returns during the Cerulean fight at the end of the episode, jumping to Kaban's defense, and prevents one of the Cerulean's jaws from clamping down.

Episode 12 - Amusement Park

Hippopotamus helps the other Friends in the fight against the Black Cerulean. She is present at the party in the Amusement Park.



Hippopotamus seems to know Serval well, since they live in the same area.


  • Hippo shares the same Japanese voice actor as Aardwolf, both being voiced by the same person. While in the English dub, however, they are voiced by different people.
