"And the first step is for you to all draw lots. Who to hunt... and who will hunt you."

— Lippo to the Hunter Exam applicants in "Two Enemies"

Lippo (リッポー, Rippō) is a Blacklist Hunter who acted as the examiner of the Third and Fourth Phases of the 287th Hunter Exam.[1]


Lippo's 2011 anime adaptation design

Lippo is a petite man with a distinguishable violet mohawk, red eyes and large clear glasses (tainted orange in the 1999 series).


Lippo apparently likes to watch fights and has a sweet tooth.[1] He is proud of his accomplishments as a Blacklist Hunter, and although he has no sympathy for criminals, he views them as his champions in the Third Phase of the Hunter Exam, relishing in their victories against the examinees, even the most brutal ones. He seems to have been very affectionated to the former chairman Netero, as he's seen teared up during the First Election for the 13th Hunter Chairman.


He is a Blacklist Hunter with a repertoire which includes the capture of Johness the Dissector: Zaban City's most notorious mass murderer. In order to coerce prisoners to fight Hunter Exam candidates in the Trick Tower, he offers to shorten the sentence of any inmate by one year for every hour they stall the examinees.[1]

Lippo with other examiners

Lippo is the proctor over the Third and Fourth Phases of the Hunter Exam: the Trick Tower[2] and the manhunt on Zevil Island.[3] As a prison warden, Lippo concocts devious ideas that test the candidates in different aspects of group dynamics, both in a communal and individual front. Many candidates are forced to work together to have any chance of passing Lippo's tests.[citation needed]

13th Hunter Chairman Election arc

After Netero's death, he is seen participating in the first round of the 13th Hunter Chairman Election.[4]

Abilities & Powers

Lippo has all the benefits granted by his status as a Hunter.


As a Hunter, he is capable of utilizing Nen, and, being a Blacklist Hunter and also having been an examiner of the 287th Hunter Exam, it is very likely that he is proficient in Nen. It is, however, never shown or mentioned.
