A person who spend their entire time on the internet trying to hook up with women. They never stop until they believe they've built the ultimate harem. One can typically find them in multiplayer games and social media outlets.

- The word "Zippo" originates from the natural behavior of a hippo. A hippo tends to reside in large groups in bodies of water, but are very territorial while not on land. Similar to how a Zippo will attempt to integrate themselves into a group that contains multiple women, and compete with any possible males who may be involved.
Holy crap, man don't be a zippo. It's much more looked-down upon than fuckboys.
