As of "Cleaved", she is wiped from existence after all magic in the universe is destroyed.
Hekapoo has pale white skin, spiked arms, long red hair (tied back in a black spiky hair tie) with bangs that cover her right eye, orange eyes, fangs, pointed ears, and jagged yellow-orange horns. She primarily wears a yellow-orange ballgown, brown high-heeled boots, and a black tiara. A small orange flame constantly burns over her head.
Hekapoo is normally laid-back and something of a trickster toward beings she considers to be lesser than herself. As the creator of dimensional scissors, however, she takes her job very seriously and becomes deeply offended when someone steals or abuses them. She also comes off as the most authoritative member of the High Commission, constantly disciplining the immature and rash Rhombulus. Despite this seriousness, she tends to have numerous quirks, such as being irresistibly attracted to masculine men and talking casually and jokingly with people close to her. She can also be somewhat cowardly, preferring to hide from threats such as Meteora Butterfly and Mina Loveberry rather than confronting them and suffering the consequences.
In Star vs. the Forces of Evil: The Magic Book of Spells, it is strongly displayed that Hekapoo is deeply prejudiced toward monsters, as not only did she join Solaria as part of the team on massacring monster armies, but she also taught Festivia Butterfly to continue the cycle of hatred between Mewmans and monsters, so obstinate to the degree that she refused to accept Omnitraxus Prime's way of teaching kindness to Festivia. Over the course of the series, however, her opinion seems to change, as it is ultimately her who turns on the Magic High Commission and allows for Star Butterfly and Marco Diaz to save the monster populace.
She has a bigger starring role alongside Marco Diaz in "Running with Scissors". As the "Scissors Enforcer", Hekapoo forges all dimensional scissors and gives them to those who earn them. When she discovers that Marco has been abusing Star Butterfly's scissors, she drags him into another dimension to seize them from him, especially since they originally belonged to her. When Marco resolves to take them back, Hekapoo challenges him to blow out the flame over her head, but she makes it difficult for him due to her super speed, duplicating, and dimension-hopping abilities.
After Marco spends sixteen years tracking Hekapoo down and eliminating her clones, she officially recognizes his resolve. As a reward, she grants him his own pair of dimensional scissors, inscribed with his name. When Marco returns to Earth, she agrees to take care of his dragon-cycle Nachos and says he can return anytime he wants.
In "Face the Music", Hekapoo attends Star's Song Day with the rest of the High Commission. Like the other members, she is shocked at the song's revelations about Glossaryck and the spellbook, and afterwards, directly confronts Queen Butterfly for withholding the sensitive information.
In "Starcrushed", Hekapoo takes part in a mission to recover Glossaryck and the book of spells from Ludo, wielding two halves of a pair of dimensional scissors like daggers. She engages Toffee in battle, but Toffee absorbs her powers. Before Toffee can finish them all off, Queen Butterfly pulls her through a portal with the other incapacitated High Commission members.
In "Return to Mewni", Hekapoo is stated to be in stasis, and Star and Moon bring her and the rest of the Commission's bodies to the Magic Sanctuary in an effort to restore them. In "Moon the Undaunted", she appears in flashback as a member of Queen Moon's royal court, urging the rest of the court to sign the Mewman/Monster Accord. In "Toffee", Hekapoo and the other High Commission members (except Lekmet) are brought back to life when Star restores the universe's magic.
In "Night Life", Hekapoo teams up with Marco to close a string of rogue interdimensional portals. When she discovers Star to be the cause of the portals, Marco convinces her to keep it a secret from the Magic High Commission. However, she angrily breaks off their partnership due to Marco keeping Star's sleep-portalling from her.
In "Total Eclipsa the Moon", Hekapoo and the rest of the High Commission are seen rushing to the Bureaucracy of Magic's archive room after Moon accidentally triggers the alarm. In "Butterfly Trap", Hekapoo takes part in Eclipsa's trial, where it is revealed she and the rest of the High Commission orchestrated a conspiracy to replace Eclipsa's daughter Meteora on the throne with the peasant girl Festivia.
In "Divide" and "Conquer", Hekapoo takes part in the battle against Meteora as part of Marco's "Marc-nificent Seven". She attempts to use her dimensional portals to stay one step ahead of Meteora, but is struck down half-way through one.
In "Junkin' Janna", Hekapoo appears among the other High Commission members alerting Star and Eclipsa about a potential new threat to Mewni that is using ancient and powerful magic.
In "A Boy and His DC-700XE", Hekapoo goes dragon-cycle riding with Marco, Kelly, Talon Raventalon, Quirky, and Tom Lucitor. In "Cornonation", she attends Eclipsa's queen coronation and captures her under suspicion of freeing Globgor. When it is discovered that Rhombulus released Globgor, Hekapoo orders his immediately imprisonment.
In "Gone Baby Gone", Hekapoo informs Marco about some strange magical happenings occurring in Mewni and warns him to stay on Earth.
In "Ready, Aim, Fire", she begrudgingly conspires with Rhombulus and Omnitraxus Prime to hire Mina Loveberry to rid Mewni of monsters. In "Pizza Party", she has a pizza party with Rhombulus and Omnitraxus to celebrate Eclipsa's removal from the Mewni throne. However, she secretly rescues Star, Marco, Moon, and Eclipsa and takes them to safety in "The Tavern at the End of the Multiverse".
In "Cleaved", Hekapoo goes along with Star's decision to destroy magic, having always felt that magic was bad and unfazed by the fact she's going to perish. Although it is not seen, it can be assumed that after the magic was destroyed, she, along with Glossaryck and the rest of the High Commission, faded out of existence.
Hekapoo originally looks down upon Marco for being a human and abusing the dimensional scissors, initially calling him "fleshwad" and "little boy". Over the course of sixteen years, however, she comes to respect him after he defeats hundreds of her clones and tenaciously hunts her down across several dimensions, admitting that she underestimated him.
She maintains a respectful yet playful (and slightly flirtatious) relationship with Marco; she likes to slap the back of his head and leave a burn mark, and he calls her "H-Poo", much to her dislike. In "Night Life", Hekapoo appears to enjoy going on missions with Marco, and she likes his adult voice. When she finds out that the rogue interdimensional portals were being created by Star in her sleep, Hekapoo becomes angry with Marco for not telling her. While she agrees not to tell the rest of the High Commission, she says that they are done working together. However, in "Divide" and "Conquer", she is shown to be a part of his "Marc-nificent Seven" to try and stop Meteora.
In "Gone Baby Gone", Hekapoo travels to Earth to warn Marco to stay away from Mewni, due to not wanting him to get involved in Mina's attack.
In "Cleaved", Marco expresses concern for Hekapoo after realizing that destroying magic will cause her to disappear. However, Hekapoo reassures Marco that she always felt magic needed to be erased, giving him one last slap before he departs.
Pony Head stole Hekapoo's personal pair of dimensional scissors before giving them to Star. It is unknown if Hekapoo is aware she is the one who stole them.
Hekapoo serves on the Magic High Commission with Rhombulus, Lekmet, and Omnitraxus Prime. She appears to be among the more authoritative members of the group, as she regularly disciplines the short-tempered Rhombulus. In "Pizza Party", she abandons the Commission out of disgust over them letting Mina and her soldiers rampage around unchecked, all so they can return things to the way they were in the "good old days".

- Time passes faster in Hekapoo's home dimension; specifically, at a rate of 12 days for every second that passes on Earth, or 1,051,200 times faster, as 16 years passed in her dimension while Star stated it was only 8 minutes on Earth.
- Hekapoo's name is sometimes spelled by series crew members and other sources as "Heckapoo".
- It is suggested in "Divide" and "A Boy and His DC-700XE" that Hekapoo has a crush on Talon Raventalon, but only for his body.
- "Ready, Aim, Fire" reveals that Hekapoo has control over all dimensional portals, with the power to shut them down so that no one is able to travel between dimensions.
- Hekapoo's name may be a play on the ancient Greek goddess Hecate. Her position on the Magic High Commission and as the forger of dimensional scissors resonate with Hecate's domain of magic, crossroads, and entrance-ways.
- Hecate was known to have three heads or three bodies. In the series, Hekapoo is known for her ability to duplicate herself. Hecate was also known to have a vampiric subordinate called Empusa, who would often prey on young men by seducing them. In the series, Hekapoo's relationship with Marco is shown to be flirtatious.
- Hekapoo's name may also be a play on the ancient Greek Hecatoncheires, or "Hundred-Handed", which could be directly tied to her duplication ability.
- Hekapoo's horns, black-colored crown, the spikes on her arms, and her association with fire give her a slight resemblance to Lord Dominator, from the show's fellow Disney Channel original series Wander Over Yonder.
- According to Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension, Glossaryck created Hekapoo to allow Mewmans to traverse the different dimensions of the multiverse.
- According to Star vs. the Forces of Evil: The Magic Book of Spells, the Magic High Commission raised Festivia Butterfly themselves. Hekapoo encouraged Festivia to continue the cycle of hatred against monsters, directly contrasting Omnitraxus Prime's attempts to teach Festivia to show monsters more kindness.
