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 Koby 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.

Romance Dawn Arc
Heppoko, along with his crewmates Peppoko, Poppoko and Koby, 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 Koby 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 Differences
Although the three appeared in the anime, Heppoko appeared in a different scene than the others; instead another miscellaneous crew member replaced him when Luffy's barrel was opened.
