Nilpferd (NILP-fairt; Ger. "hippopotamus") is a hippopotamus-like Wesen mentioned by Monroe in several comic issues. The creature has never been featured, although a hippopotamus-like Wesen, the Taweret, appeared in "The Seven Year Itch" in season 6.


  • The phrase "Nilpferd Furzen" means "Hippo fart" and is an insulting name to call someone who knows German. Monroe has also referred to a splitting headache as "like a Nilpferd Furzen sat on my head." An extremely potent gas attack is also called a Nilpferd Furzen.
