Heppoko is a tanned skinned man, with a large forehead and short black hair. He also has a black mustache and goatee. He wears a yellow short sleeved shirt, and has a hairy chest.
Typical of his thuggish appearance, Heppoko likes to intimidate Coby due to his low status and timid personality. He fears Alvida, and tried to deny slacking off (which she hates) when she found him doing so. He, like the rest of the crew, calls her beautiful simply to avoid her Iron Mace.
Heppoko, along with his crewmates Peppoko, Poppoko and Coby, found Luffy in the barrel he had drifted to their hideout in. Luffy punched Heppoko when he woke up and broke out of the barrel. The first three intimidated Coby due to his low status as a ship caretaker, and tried to attack Luffy, but were defeated. After that, they reported to Alvida when she attacked them, thinking they were slacking off.
Manga and Anime DifferencesEdit
Although the three appeared in the anime, at least one of them appeared in a different scene to the others, instead another miscellaneous crew member replaced him when Luffy's barrel was opened. In the anime one of them later reappears as a member of Gally's crew.
