When it comes to horse then Ippei is the man. When he was in America, his only friend after her mother and father died was his horse, Eiffel. Ippei told story about his friendship with his horse, Eiffel. He was then forced to part with Eiffel when he joined Voltes Team. When Ippei lost his temper and decided to leave the team for good, Dr. Hamaguchi asked Megumi to tell him that he could fetch Eiffel at Haneda Airport.
