Mechanics[ | ]

    • 48,000 XP is required for a manatee to evolve into a hippo.
  • Hippos do not evolve into any other animals, as they are one of the latest animals.
  • Hippos drop meat upon death.
  • As a hippo, friendly fire is turned off for all tier 1 animals: meaning you cannot damage them nor be damaged by them.

Active Abilities[ | ]

Name Image Charge Time Description
Ram Hippo Ram None Boosting increases your speed by 50% and creates a hitbox, dealing rapid damage (40 per tick) and short stuns to the target.

You're immune to most attacks from the front while using this.

The ability is cancelled if stunned or shocked.

This ability acted differently in older updates, it was formerly a loud roar until it was changed to Ram, but slightly different.

Suitable Biomes[ | ]

  • The suitable biome for the hippo is the swamp and the swamp surface.
    • If a hippo enters the ocean, it will lose oxygen and salinity.
    • If a hippo enters the ocean surface, it will not regenerate salinity.
    • If a hippo enters the arctic, it will lose oxygen and salinity.
    • If a hippo enters the arctic surface, it will not regenerate salinity.
    • If a hippo enters the deeeep, it will lose oxygen, pressure and salinity.
    • If a hippo enters the swamp, it will lose oxygen; however it can swim and its oxygen time is long enough for this to not matter.
