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


Lippo apparently likes to watch fights and has a sweet tooth.[2] 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 Isaac Netero, as he teared up the first day of the election.


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.[2]

Lippo is the proctor over the third and fourth phases of the Hunter Exam: the Trick Tower[3] and the manhunt on Zevil Island.[1] 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.

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

Abilities & Powers

Lippo has all the benefits granted by his status as a Hunter. As a Blacklist Hunter and examiner of the 287th Hunter Examination it is very likely that he is proficient in Nen, it is however never shown or mentioned.
