Large chin and long tail
Mel first appears at Lara's birthday party, hidden inside her cake. Though he attempts to woo her, Lara declines his advances. She then sees Herman with his new handsome appearance, making Mel jealous. Shortly after this, Mel challenges Herman to a duel but loses to the wildebeest after he reveals his true ugly form.
Personality and traits
Like the stereotypical jock, Mel is cocky and confident in his ability to woo. He thinks little of Lara's feelings and automatically assumes that his good looks and charm will win her over. When confronted, he is quick to anger and even more quick to defend his pride. He also turns out to be very cowardly since he instantly escapes from Herman after seeing his true form.
