Top 5 Hardest and Easiest Poptropica Islands

I would have gotten this out earlier, but I had NO idea that there would be enough news for not one, but TWO unexpected posts today. Which is good, because we are finally getting some Pop updates again, yet is bad since it delays the posts that were actually planned ahead of time.

And no, there won’t be any posts tomorrow sadly, as none are planned and Creators NEVER announce news during the weekend. Although for some of you how live in places like Australia (I’m lookin’ at you, Shaky Skunk) it’s already Saturday morning. Oh well.

Anyways, let’s get started with the Top 5 Lists. As you saw in the title, it will be about the Hardest and the Easiest Poptropica Islands in my opinion. We are going to start with the Hardest Islands, as it’s easier to come up with a list for them than the easiest islands, quite oddly.

Top 5 HARDEST Poptropica Islands

5. Escape From Pelican Rock tied with Virus Hunter

I’m actually not sure which one is harder than the other, so I just made them a tie. Pelican Rock is pretty hard even with a guide, I played it right when it released to members on December 10th. It took me 4 hours to complete. And it just HAD to be a school night.

As for Virus Hunter, the quest is pretty straight-forward, but that Brain Virus Boss, so hard, even harder than the final boss, which makes no sense.

4. Wild West


Rant over.

3. Skullduggery 

I know many of you think Skullduggery is the hardest of ’em all, but I disagree. While it is challenging to get a million coins, it takes more time than skill. You need a lot of patience and free time to complete this island. That’s why it’s at #3.

2. Steamworks

This island is SUPER HARD. All the puzzles and plant monster fights make this the perfect candidate for the second hardest island ever.

1. Astro-Knights

Three words: the dragon battle.

Some other rage-quitting moments involve leading robot-sharks into a black hole without killing yourself, that volcano, using a bubble shield thing (that looks similar to the one in Steven Universe) to destroy a helicopter, riding a flying unicorn, a super hard puzzle, AND fighting a cyborg.

And yet the challenge makes it one of the best Poptropica islands.

Top 5 EASIEST Poptropica Islands

5. Big Nate

When I was writing this post, I almost forgot about the sponsored islands. Big Nate is VERY simple, it can be hard at some parts, but I wasn’t sure what else to put for #5, so I just picked this one.

4. 24 Carrot

This is a very easy island. I think almost all of you agree with that. You just save a car by getting milk at that cafe and stuff, then you sneak into the factory and find your way through the vents, and later you defeat Dr. Hare. It’s easier than it sounds, people!

3. Shark Tooth

It takes 5-10 minutes to complete. It was the second island made ever. It’s a fetch quest. How much more of an explanation do you need?

2. Early Pop

Same as Shark Tooth, except it was the FIRST island ever made. So it’s a tiny bit easier in my opinion.

1. Monkey Wrench

It’s literally a tutorial. They tell you stuff like how to MOVE and how to JUMP. Something that is needed to know for every other island. So yeah, not very surprising that this was the easiest…

Well, that’s the last post for today, I promise this time. See you on Sunday for two special posts!

A Stormy Mystery (Pt. 2) and Two Top 5 Lists

(Sorry this is late…)

OK, so yesterday I looked at the Santa Spy book, and there was a picture of their version of Dr. Cumulus Nimbus…and it wasn’t what I expected. In that book he’s just a guy with a lab coat on and his head is a cloud with eyes and a mouth….YES I’M SERIOUS. His face is LITERALLY a CLOUD oh my gosh this is so funny!!!

Wait a second…

Yeah, the Pop one does have a cloud on his head too, but it’s not his entire face. He also has a lab coat. Other than that, they look kinda different, or do they? I feel like the Pop Nimbus is a more detailed version of the book one. But I don’t really know, sadly there isn’t the clear answer I was hoping for. We’ll probably never know if the Creators copied that book or if it was an accident, whatever…

Anyways….it’s Friday! Friday! Gotta get down on Friday! Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend….and the weekly Top 10 List!

Well, actually, I should say Top 5 List. Two of them, to be exact. You see, they both go together. Because it’s the Top 5 Smartest and Top 5 Dumbest Poptropica Characters!!!

Top 5 SMARTEST Poptropica Characters

5. Steamworks Characters

Many of the characters from Steamworks Island, like the Mayor, Sully, Zack, and the decreased Captain Ziggs were able to create mind-blowing steam-powered machines in the 1800s,

4. Dr. Hare

This quirky character, and maybe even the mascot of Poptropica, is an evil genius, after all.

3. Zeus

The only villain so far to actually succeeded with his evil plan…for a few hours at least. Also created a Dream Machine and seems to be the only character to know about the totems.

2. Binary Bard / Mordred

Like Dr. Hare, he is an evil genius, but he’s even smarter than him. He created lots of inventions, was able to make a barn owl into a robot, etc., etc. He later made himself a cyborg to survive on an unknown planet, and then became evil.

Who could be smarter than Mordred? Oh wait, someone is…

1. Athena

Does this surprise you?

Let’s get on with the next list now, we don’t have all day!

Top 5 DUMBEST Poptropica Characters

5. Ned Noodlehead

His name perfectly explains this nerd.

4. Crusoe

The guy from Monkey Wrench who doesn’t know how to stop talking. He also doesn’t know how to stop sleeping. Thinks that a bucket attached to balloons will fly… if an actual person stands in it.

3. Just About Everyone on Reality TV Island

All they care about is watching TV and Bucky Lucas, who didn’t even win Reality TV…he was the first one voted off. These people need to develop a better life style, they probably aren’t very healthy.

2. Your Poptropican

Wait…what? Yes, your Poptropican, the hero, is actually one of the stupidest characters in the game. Why? Let’s see…they trust everyone they meet and they always turn out to be the villain, and well you get the point. They are able to solve all those quests, but then again, they are just following that huge arrow on the screen to even move!

1. Gamer Guy

Sorry, Mighty Gamer, I know he’s your Pop crush, but he’s actually the dumbest character in Poptropica. He doesn’t understand how major the Zomberry apocalypse is, he’d eventually run out of food and water if it your Poptropican didn’t stop the apocalypse. Also, this post:

Worst. Grammar. EVER!


k ppl better go enjoy me gr8 weekend playin’ some non-noob video games like mega fighting bots and flappy bird. idk y cant pop just get a new island already geez tis annoying n boring tho im still obsessed with pop. well bye

Top 10 Poptropica Minor Characters

It seems like only the villains and a few other characters get all the attention in Poptropica. Especially since your Poptropican and the villains are the only real major characters in Pop. But there are some pretty great minor characters too. Here are my top 10 favorites!

10: That Roller Skating Kid in EFPR

Just look at that awesome design!


9: The Randomized Poptropicans on Early Pop

They get the award for worst designs! All those clashing, noob outfits XD

8: The Hall of Fame 2015 Winners

The winners can be found on Game Show, Reality TV, Night Watch, and Super Power. They totally stand out of the crowd, especially with all those Randomized Poptropicans on Super Power Island.

7: The Royal Family and Knights


The only reason they are on there is because I wanted to bring this old picture back.

6: Bucky Lucas

The first ever person to be voted off on Reality TV. Also a famous actor, making apperences all over Poptropica. Likes pizza too.

5: Gamer Guy

Just read this and you’ll see:

He’s sooooo amazing!!!

4: Shark Guy/Boy

I hope you find a better job soon, as you seem to be miserable working at the Shark Museum. Also, sorry that Dr. Hare replaced you on the Daily Pop Sneak Peaks.

3: The Chef in S.O.S.

This is just too perfect. #ChefsicleFTW

2: Balloon Boy

One of the best running gags ever. Almost as good as “My Leg!” in the cartoon that I was obsessed with for 7 years straight (life wasted) SpongeBob Squarepants. Kinda rude that our Poptropicans never even bother to save the poor kid.

1: Zack

TC x Zack forever ❤

PLEASE DON’T MAKE FUN OF MY POP CRUSH!!! Seriously…admit it, we all have one.

-Tall Cactus

(And on the next two Top 10 Lists, you may see one or two characters above return. Also, all future Top 10s will be a lot better than this one, with actual evidence of my choices. I kinda just quickly threw this one together, and it’s meant to be taken as a joke.)
