The Top 5 Scariest Moments, Places, and Things in Poptropica

Hey guys, BT here! Now, I’ve taken another look at Poptropica- and let’s face it- some small parts are scary… T_T In honor of Halloween, here are the top 5 scariest moments in Poptropica…

5) The Weeping Angel Statue

Location: Haunted House

Why it’s freaky: Those who watch Doctor Who will flinch at the sight of this thing. I never watched it, but in the episode, these statues supposedly come to life and come after you or something. Something about looking at it… and the fact that you shouldn’t blink. Although this statue is harmless, it’s still gives off the heebie-jeebies.

4) The Chupacabra

Location: Cryptids Island

Why it’s freaky: So you’ve captured the Chupacabra. That’s great. You push the crate concealing the beast towards the truck when all of a sudden, BAM! The Chupacabra breaks out of the crate and runs off, sound included. This can make you jump.

3) The Cemetary Labyrinth

Location: Ghost Story Island

Why it’s freaky: Welcome to the Cemetary Labyrinth, a maze concealed in darkness. Who knows what could be around the corner? With frogs jumping, ravens going from one perch to another, something rustling in the bushes, and a skeleton of a bird lurking in the maze, this place has your imagination going places.

2) “Are you looking for someone?”

Location: Ghost Story Island

Why it’s freaky: We all know that’s sound’s rare in Poptropica, but what about voice acting? Only 3 islands have voice acting, and one of them occurs in the creepiest way. Just as you are looking through the telescope, a woman’s voice asks “Are you looking for someone?” Since you don’t expect it and you’re just surprised, for that brief second, you think somebody’s in your room. But then it’s Fiona. Why?

1) The Jersey Devil

Location: Cryptids Island

Why it’s freaky: Okay, let’s face it. First, you enter a creepy New Jersey wood. Then you end up in front of some weird gates who’s house number is 669, but the 9 is turned upside down, so it’s really “666” (the number of the devil- and I thought 1313 was a creepy number!). Then you explore a creepy house until you find a raccoon and a grappling hook. Just as you are to exit, who’s at the window? The Jersey Devil! Just everything about this scenario is just plain wrong.

So that’s the five scariest moments, places, and things in Poptropica! If you have any more scary moments, let me know in the comments!

BT out!

(Oh my gosh, I really need to stop making pointless posts like this this often… and eventually make a post that has a point…)

Poptropica Villain Profiles- Super Villain Island Special

Yeah, sure, we know them by name. And what they are. But, I’m in the mood to make 4 profiles for each of the four villains… and stuff.

On with it!

File #1: Dr. Hare

avatar image

Description/Opinion: Dr. Harvey Hare was the very first real foe to step into Poptropica, making his debut in the classic island 24 Carrot Island. However, out of the four, he was the easiest to defeat: you just crash his rabbot into asteroids. Ever since then, we haven’t seen him, unless you end up in a season of Reality TV Island with him. There was an attempted sequel before to 24 Carrot Island: Dr. Hare’s Secret Lab, but we never actually saw him… what a let-down. In his dream, Dr. Hare is kidnapped by ants (yes, ANTS), and taken under the ground, so you have to rescue him. His totem is a golden carrot.

Creators’ Description:

Director D. is not impressed.

File #2: Black Widow

Description/Opinion: The Black Widow is the first female leading villain in an island (and I’m not thinking about you, Copy Cat and Betty Jetty), and one of my personal favorites. She’s also the most realistic villain out of the four, for art theives can exist in real life as we know. Her origin island is one of my favorites: Counterfiet Island. You actually first meet her in the beginning in the quest, but we didn’t know that, because the chief investigator for the police is actually the Black Widow herself! Sneaky. Like Dr. Hare, she’s a possible contestant on Reality TV Island. Her dream involves her vandalizing various pieces of art while displaying her own art in a museam, guarded by little spiders. Her totem is represented as a paintbrush.

You won’t lose next time? See you on Counterfeit Island, Black Widow.

File #3: Captain Crawfish

avatar image

Description/Opinion: Yaar. Captain Crawfish’s may have the appearance of the cliche pirate captain, but he’s still a sea salt to be reckoned with. He’s that pirate captain of Skullduggery Island. Out of the villains, the journey to defeat him is the most complicated: you have to raise enough money to be able to purchase a Phoenix Warbird and then get that crew together. Last time we saw him, we abandoned him on the actual Skullduggery Island and just left him to… um… be stranded. However, it looks like the Erewhon police have apprehended Captain Crawfish from that island and ended up in the Erewhon Prison for Super Villains. His dream traps multiple versions of him in a comatose state on a rocking boat, some on the actual boat while others on the ship in a bottle. His totem is represented as the ship in the bottle, the Seachicken.

Quite possibly the only time you see a grin on his face is in a Pop Quiz answer…

File #4: Binary Bard

avatar image

Description/Opinion: Once known as Mordred, he’s the cyborg jester inventor in the dark sciences from Astro-Knights.  He also has the most complicated back-story (see Creators’ Description). Last time we saw him, we destroyed that… um… contraption by using his own bombs and chandeliers. After being beat up by the princess, he ends up being trapped in his castle because the orb is no longer in his possession. However, it looks like the… erm… space police got to him and sent him to Erewhon Prison. Also, he’s been voted favorite villain by Poptropica fans twice: once last year, and once three years ago (see the posts: A special message from the Binary Bard and Mr. Popular). His dream is a timeline of his past, from his early years as Mordred to his descent into madness to finally becoming the Binary Bard. His totem is represented as an astrolabe.

I don’t think detention’s gonna change the Binary Bard’s thoughts at all…

File #5- Zeus

Description/Opinion: The least original villain of the five, Zeus is the Grecian king of the gods and god of the skies. He’s had a rough childhood dealing with Daddy Cronus alongside his siblings. In the end, he and his brothers Poseidon and Hades defeated the Titans and took over the world. The three each took a realm, sky, sea, and Underworld, and became enemies. However, all those years made Zeus greedy with power and he started to yearn for control of the rest of Poptropica, more than just Mythology Island. He saw the perfect oppurtunity when you came into the picture and he had you fetch 5 sacred items for unknown reasons. He then tried to take over Poptropica using the sacred items, but you stopped him with the aid of Hades’ crown and Poseidon’s trident. In SVI, Zeus disguised himself as Dr. Jupiter and fooled you into getting the 4 totems of the four villains listed above and used them to try world domination again. But you stopped him, again, this time trapping him in a comatose state at a sleep chamber. His dream is a negative-colored weird version of his home island Mythology Island, and for some reason he doesn’t have a totem. Well, I don’t think we’ll be hearing from him ever again.

(nothing like a good ol’ glass of grape juice to make a god happy…)

I’m both intimidated and excited about Super Villain Island… I mean I’m listening to a bunch of fitting songs and drawing them a lot… some more often than the others… but this is almost like a filler post, I guess.

Out of the four… I’m most intimidated by the Binary Bard. Why? Well, it’s kinda  a long story.

The night the Binary Bard was announced to be coming back, I had a dream with him in it. Forgot what it was really about, but I do remember that yellow and purple jester outfit. When I woke up, I made a post on the PHB called Sweet Dreams and Horrid Nightmares, explaining the Willy Wonka sneak peeks, as well as the sneak peeks that would come to be for Super Villain Island. Later, at about noon, the Binary Bard’s reveal post had two additional sentences in it. “Did you think we would just go away quietly? In your dreams!” It was creepy because the Binary Bard actually WAS in my dream the previous night… and I had no clue about the description of the island yet… so ever since then I looked at him differently.

Yeah, it’s a really strange reason. I know. But that’s just the way it is… for me.

BT out!

WHO THE HECK IS THAT?!

The Race to Erase: Looks like someone is attempting to rub out Poptropica as we know it. But you’re not going to let that happen, are you? ~ Captain Crawfish

Some kind of… creepy… eraser-man who’s erasing Dragon Cove in Skullduggery Island…

*gets on Phoenix Warbird*

Navigator: Where have you been all this time?!

Let’s just go to Dragon Cove. I want to see something.

*Rides ship to Dragon Cove*

*Brave Tomato runs out of the ship and looks around. Everything is still in tact.*

Must be some sort of future event… I hope this guy isnt the one responsible for those returning villains.. wait, I’m on Skullduggery, and this is where CC is!

Who the heck is this guy, and why the heck does he want to erase Poptropica? Wait, did I say erase? Like Poptropica’s some sort of canvas… wait-a-minute! The Starry Night and Water Lillies Daily Pop! The fact that the Black Widow covered those paintings! Argh! I’m really confused! And he has hands and shoes!!! O.o

I…I Thought I… Got Her in Jail…

Look at THIS Daily Pop:

Art Attack: No one respects true art, anymore.

Somethings not right… I had her… in jail..

That hairstyle…

Black, white, and red…

My goodness gracidelias…

Is this the work of the Black Widow, the cunning art theif of Counterfiet Island and the first main female villain of Poptropica (not counting Copy Cat or Betty Jetty)?!

If she can’t have the Scream, then nobody can enjoy the art of others… I mean, she went from art theif to art vandalizer! But then again, she was a possible contestant on Reality TV Island… I don’t know what the heck it is! This has Black Widow drawn all over it! Literally! … Although she’s one of my favorite villains, I am a little concerned.

Auugh! What the heck is this??

My Opinion on Some of the Pictures: Part 3

Hey guys, BT here with another picture opinion!

This picture makes me feel awkward (and some other girl characters might feel the same way).

Bingo was his name-o. Took me 3 tries to get that win. Very annoying.

You can’t see my black skirt and tights in the black background! 😐 At least provide an outline or something.

Yayy childhood memories!

Look, Linus, I’ve seen the cartoon. It’s going to turn out to be just Snoopy every time.

I’m not sure if that’s Charlie Brown’s actual face or the face I drew on the back of his head. But I drew a different carving: like from the cartoon “If we do the eyes like this…”

Good grief, Linus made it look so easy!

A glitch made this picture the only picture I got from replaying SOS island! Anybody got the same problem?

I don’t get this picture at all. Explanation please?

Yeahhhh I’m a bunny drone! (is not a bunny drone)

…. That’s it

Also, I wasn’t able to get the Red Baron picture from GP either, because of the glitch! I wan see the pics DX

BT out!

Hmm. A Gameplay Trailer and a Thought.

Watch the new trailer for Wimpy Boardwalk!

The new trailer for Wimpy Boardwalk is here!

But that’s not all! Members can also get their exclusive Wimpy Boardwalk items in the Poptropica Store.

Grab the Beachgoer costume, Beach Umbrella item, and Heat Wave power right now. And get ready for a hot summer on Poptropica!
avatar image BLACK WIDOW

Yup. That’s the Wimpy Wonderland trailer and Members only stuff. The costume’s-well-a costume. The heat wave power makes people surrounding you, and you, go into a sweat and cry out, while the screen glows an ominous red-orange. You can turn it off. The beach umbrella, when placing the spacebar, lays down a beach umbrella wherever you’re standing.
Off-topic time. Due to a couple of Ozzy Osbourne songs, I’ve been thinking about this guy:
I don’t know why I’m thinking about E.Vile. This guy means buisness- I mean in my opinion- he makes Dr. Hare look like a playground bully. E. Vile just wouldn’t give up like those other villains. (Yes, I’m aware that Dr. Hare had his secret lab, but we never actually SAW him.) He actually has an army, and you actually fight that army with a sword. I have a feeling he’ll make a second appearance one day. I don’t know when, but in the meantime, I’m still curious. This Poptropica villain is certainly a mystery.
There is one thing that compares him to other villains though- he has the whole common “I’m going to take over Poptropica/the universe and no one is going to stop me!” bit. Now… lets see how many villains has that goal… *counts* There’s Dr. Hare, Binary Bard, Zeus, Holmes, Dr. CumuloNimbus (from the blimp quest), and E. Vile. That’s six. I’m not sure if I’m counting Director D., since he wants to zap the hair off of everyone… nah, not gonna count him. Now that I think about it, that’s not that many. But it’s still many.
BT out from this semi-useless post.

My Opinion on Some of the Pictures: Part Two

Here are some more reactions:

Ah, just like me and my cat. 😐

I have an unusual fascination with the angry eyes for some reason. Maybe cause I don’t see them on my character often?

Ah, diving. That’s one of my best sports in the Poptropolis Games.

What’s with my mouth??

Did you know at one point, Binary Bard had lips in this picture. Due to my character’s laughter, I thought it was intentional. Guess not.

This is the only pic I liked from the Vampire’s Curse collection (besides the one with me standing aside from the picture of Bram and Annabelle). The other two look a little odd.

The Black Widow is one of my favorite villains. She’s just darn cool. Also impressive how she’s able to live a double life as a cop, as well.

If you look at this upside down, you’ll notice that there are the angry eyes again. A nice, simple pic.

That painful reminder that we’re the ones responsible for Balloon Boy’s journey through the skies.

That’s it. But I have a question….

Even after I finished Counterfiet Island, I only have those three pictures. Can anyone tell me when I was supposed to get the fourth one? Thanks. BT out!

My Opinion on Some of the Pictures: Part One

The part that I was most looking forward to in PopFriends is the picture thing. So far, I have 24 pictures (Super Power Island has 5 pictures o.o) and I will tell my opinion on the ones I collected so far.

My opinions of the pic are underneath the pictures…

Uh… this pic makes me look like I’m the bad guy. 😛 I have the smirk… but not Betty.

The Copy Cat on the right… her pose reminds me of something Krimson Everred would do.

A nice and simple picture.

This is the pic I used for my Gravatar profile background, cause I’m from NJ. Go NJ!

The Red-Eyed Snake looked kinda cute there : ) .

This one is one of my favorites. I just love my Poptropican’s expression on her face : )

This pic just makes me laugh. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s Mille’s expression on her face or something?

O.e Okay…

Wait… since when did Zeus have a white undershirt…? (and where the heck did my jacket go??)

I like this pic, but I don’t think that guy chasing me is a B.A.D. agent at all… 😐

WHEEEE!!!!! 😀

Well… that’s all I have for now. When I get more pics, I’ll make a part 2.

A Map of Twisted Portportions

*tomato gets thrown at BT*

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??

Brave Tomato: Well, I uh…

GLAD TA SEE YA POSTIN HERE FOR ONCE!

Brave Tomato: Do you want me to do the post? Well, the Creators released the map for Twisted Thicket, which comes out for Membahs tomorrow! 😀 (Which is also the day I go back to school 😦 )

A twisted, turning path

 
Here’s your first look at the Twisted Thicket map!

Twisted Thicket will be available to Poptropica Members tomorrow, April 12!

This map seems progressive, instead of the usual scattered style, so we (hopefully) won’t have to go back and forth throughout the forest and the town.
 
And here’s wat the map icon looks like!
 
 
*impatiently waits* As soon as school ends tomorrow…
 

Underwater

Is where we are going to be in 2 days tomorrow!

As the excitement builds for SOS, I’ve been all over the place; on STB, on the PHB (yes, I said the Poptropica Help Blog), and also some other stuff.

BT out! (Sorry for not posting!6
