The Hippos are residents who live in the Shady Oasis. They are small, with tiny wings on their backs. Once they eat berries from the Great Berry Bush, they become temporarily invincible, and can smash their way through doors. The main hippo is brown, while the others are blue. However, there are possibly other brown hippos in the Oasis, as another is seen in the ending sequence after Spyro completes Shady Oasis.
