For the weapon, see Hippo (Weapon).

The Hippo, or Hippo Head, is a common enemy found in Terrifying Resort. It also appears in the Scary Pizzeria, along with Wave 5 in Arena.


It is a light purple mechanical head of a hippo, with its mouth agape, showing 4 blunt teeth.


It will approach the player by bouncing and getting closer every time it bounces. It will then attack the player while bouncing when at melee range.

  • Melee weapons are decent for killing a Hippo, but you must be quick, as the Hippo can deal damage pretty quickly.
    • It is still more advisable to shoot it as it has fast attack speed.
  • Going in circles around a Hippo will decrease its chances of hitting you.
  • A group of Hippos can quickly chew one's health and armor away when attempting to melee them, it is recommended to shoot them instead.
  • Being a severed head, it is quite vulnerable to headshots.
  • Try Rocket Jumping away if you are being surrounded.
  • For some reason, this has more health then other enemies bigger then this, be sure to also not get caught in a group of hippos.


  • This and the Hippo gun share the same model, the only difference being the size of the hippo head model.
  • There is also a Hippo themed gun.
  • This is one of the fastest attacking enemies in the game.
  • This monster could be referencing the beheaded animatronics from Five Nights at Freddy's. It is possible that the body of this monster exists, but only the head is present.
