Spoiler Alert

The following article contains information that may be of great importance
in the series, read at your own risk.

"I love those frightened eyes, and that frail body. They are the very essence of an herbivore's beauty. You remind me of your papa's flavor which I love so, so much, ...Melon." ― Her last words to Melon

Melon's mother (メロンの母, Meron no haha?) is a minor character in Beastars.


She is a middle-aged leopard with a slender build and fairly trimmed light yellow coat covered with evenly spaced black spots, with those on her head being elongated. Melon's mother always keeps a permanent smiling expression.

She wears a sweater with a long skirt and ruffled apron.


Melon's mother never leaves her one-room apartment, often asking her son, Melon, to get necessities such as groceries. In this apartment, she created a sort of fantasy world where everything is okay and nothing bad happens.

She appears to be a loving mother, but it is debatable to whether she named her son Melon because she desired to eat him or the fact that he is a carnivore-herbivore hybrid.


  • From the flashbacks it's shown that she may have indeed loved her gazelle partner very much.
    • She thinks of him fondly.
    • The reason she refuses to leave her home is likely to not face reality.
    • If she did not love him, her delusional state would not have happened.
