Kipo Oak is the titular main protagonist of Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts.

Kipo is a teenage girl who later finds out that she is a mute hybrid after dreaming her late mother who was also a mother hybrid. She befriend Mandu, a mutant pig, Wolf a wolf-raised orphan girl, Benson, a pop music loving hobo and his mutant insect companion Dave to find her people underground.

She is voiced by Karen Fukuhara, who also voiced Glimmer.

Appearance

Kipo is a later 13-year-old female human with mauve skin, spiky, pale pink hair tied up in a ponytail, and magenta eyes. She wears an off-shoulder gray shirt featuring a small planet graphic layered over a black tank top or unitard, dark purple jeans, and a pair of pink high tops.

Formerly, she wore a boilersuit like most other burrow people.

She turns into a jaguar with purple skin.

Personality

Kipo is a friendly, optimistic, confident, and a pioneering girl. Contrary to most humans and mutes, Kipo believes the two can co-exist and acts accordingly--much to everyone's surprise. Her plucky idealism stands out among the hardened cynicism on the surface and usually reveals her as a "burrow girl". In addition to her unusual perspective, Kipo is clearly intelligent, as she is capable of thinking quickly in high-stress situations as well as solving complex mathematical equations uninterrupted for hours. She shares her father's love of astronomy and was dumbfounded when, after years living underground, she finally saw the night sky.

History

Kipo grew up in the burrows under Las Vistas where she was predominantly raised by her father, from whom she learned a great deal about natural sciences, music, and climbing. It is not entirely clear when or why her mother died, but it has been stated that her cause of death was due to some form of illness.

One day while Lio and Kipo are climbing, a mega mute attacks their underground burrow. Lio throws Kipo into the canal to save her. He intends to follow his daughter through the canals to the surface, but is blocked by falling rocks.

Nearing her thirteen birthday, Kipo notices increasingly strange abilities alongside disturbing physical mutations. The first indication of enhanced abilities occurs in Season 1, Episode 5 when her pupils mutate into vertical slits allowing her to see clearly in the dark.

On her thirteen birthday, Kipo and Benson are attacked in Ratland, and Kipo displays super grip strength in one of her arms. At the time, spotted fur sprouts across her shoulder, bicep, and down along her forearm only to fade away. In a later episode, Kipo complains to Jamack about her heightened sense of smell. By the season 1 finale, Kipo steps into her most powerful evolution yet when her right arm mutates into an enlarged cat-like limb complete with pink fur, purple spots, and large claws.

Trivia

  • Kipo is terrible at codenames.
  • So far, all of Kipo's abilities have shown animal-like features (if not just cat).
    • However, in Season 2, it is revealed these abilities belonged to a jaguar.
  • Kipo was originally named Minji, which is a common name in Korea.
  • She, along with Wolf, Mandu, and Dave, is the only character to appear in every episode of the series.
  • Kipo's mantra for entering and exiting her jaguar form "Herbs in, Herbs out" appears to be similar to "Wax on, Wax off" from the Columbia Pictures film The Karate Kid.
  • Her name "Kipo" (Κήπο) in Greek translates to the word "garden".
  • Kipo is the only human character from the original webcomic to retain her abnormal skin tone.
    • It is unknown why no character in the show has ever questioned this.
