Dipper was shown to be a encouraging Time Shfiter, who did not want to see Marco Polo give up when they were lost in the desert, supporting him even after he gained the trust and authourity in a town. Even when he knew Marco Polo's tall tales were lies, Dipper also did not stop Marco Polo from telling them despite expressing facially discontent.

Dipper has the ability to find water and can even create water from his nose.



His water abilities are replaced with fire which fires from his nose.

According to the story as told by Marco Polo in episode 31, Dipper was originally found by Marco Polo when he was being sold at a market, Marco Polo rescued him. Dipper stayed by Marco Polo's side and accomplied him on his journey with his father and uncle.

On his journey, Marco Polo faced countless events that made him feel useless and a burden to his father and uncle. Eventually, Marco Polo ran off, taking Dipper with him. Just as Marco Polo was about to give up, Dipper gave him the strength to carry on. At some point soon after he ran away, he managed to gain the respect of a town, whom came to rely on Marco Polo due to Dipper's powers, but did not enjoy being ordered around by a brat.

When Flint Hammerhead arrived, Marco Polo and Dipper saved them from being killed after they soiled a well owned by a man and his men. They took Flint back to the town where Marco Polo was staying and they stayed overnight as Marco Polo's guests. During the night, Petra Fina Dagmar, Dino, Mite and Ninja tricked Marco Polo into believing Flint and his friends where thieves and monsters, so Marco Polo imprisoned them the next day. While he was distracted, Dipper was caught and Petra stamped, turning him evil.

After a failed attempt to rescue the group from Merlock Holmes, Marco Polo became the only one left to rescue everyone. He managed to help free the others while Dipper-Kon and Super Ninja were beating Flint in an arena. Marco Polo then manages to get through to Dipper, freeing him from Petra's control. Then, Dipper, along with his little brother Mosbee and their fellow Time Shifter Coconaut transformed into the Master forms and proceeded to defeat Super Ninja. After the battle, Dipper and Mosbee celebrated their reunion.

After Marco Polo was united with his father and uncle, Dipper was returned to the 25th century to join the other Time Shifters.


His Japanese name comes from "jabber" (ジャバー), or "talk in a rapid, excited, and often incomprehensible way".


  • His abilities are a mirror of Mosbee's "ice" powers, of which Mosbee focuses on cold climates, Dipper's focus on desert climates.
  • He was the last Time Shifter which the Petra Stamp was used with
  • Dipper was the last newly encountered Shfiter to transform in the series, minus Orbit all other Shifters after Dipper that transformed were Shfiter's rescued from prior to Dipper.
  • In his master form, his trunk becomes a tube leading from his face to chest area. While is a minor detail to note, this is likely a nod to the fact that soldiers wielding a flame thrower are often seen with masks or various breathing equipment. This is due to several hazards of working with such weapons, such as oxygen supplies, chemicals and heat related problems.
