Scariest moments and villainous depictions

Hello, everyone! It’s Lucky Joker here with some fun stuff to share with you all today: scary moments, more fan art, and a throwback highlight for a YouTube gamer. Let’s pop into it!

On Instagram and the Creators’ Blog, Poptropica asked the community: What’s the scariest moment in Poptropica? Appropriately timed for the spooky Halloween season! Check out some of the responses below.

Here were some of the answers given by Poptropicans in the comments:

scoutin0ut wrote, “Definitely the Ghost Story [Island] ‘Are you looking for someone?’ part!! I jumped out of my seat and actually gasped during that!”

cacaocheri added, “For me, it was walking through the tunnel in Zomberry [Island].”

Gentle Dolphin of the PHB shared, “One scene that still unnerves me is the haunted house on Monster Carnival Island. I’m not a fan of jumpscares, so a creepy puppet popping out of random doors is definitely terrifying.”

What was your scariest Poptropica memory? Share with us in the comments here on the PHB, our PHC Discord server, or on Poptropica’s official channels!


In other Creator-fandom interactions, Poptropica also showcased more awesome fan art on their Instagram story this past week. Check out the poptastic gallery below (including a piece from Gentle Dolphin with the spooktacular Jersey Devil of Cryptids Island!)…

Pretty neat, huh? I encourage all of you to get creative and whip up your own Poptropica fan art too. For inspiration, we’ve got Poptober and Community Creations going!

And who knows? Your work just might get featured!


And finally, we have a video feature from the Creators’ Blog showing kid gaming YouTuber EthanGamer playing Poptropica for the first time—and since it’s an older video (from 2016), he’s playing Monkey Wrench Island, the old tutorial that has since been replaced by Snagglemast. The Creators loved his joy over the Hot Dog costume too! Give it a watch:

We featured another one of Ethan’s videos on the PHB a few years ago, when he played the now-inactive Poptropica Worlds for the first time and was even sponsored by Poptropica for that video.

Anyway, it’s cool to see the Creators give some love to Poptropica YouTubers, even if they’re from the archives!


That’s it for now. Thanks for reading, have a spooktacular rest of your day, and stay tuned for our Halloween contest wrap-up. 🎃 Pop on!

  1. I agree that the Monster Carnival puppet man was definitely the scariest, although that jersey devil is just as much the stuff of nightmares…

  2. It sure feels good that I’m not alone in Poptropica fandom. There are fans everywhere, and there are more around the world than I could ever know. Of all the websites I’ve ever been to, there has been no website that comes close to Poptropica, when the fans reach out to the creators. There are even online clubs! This is like the only website I ever found with its own fan clubs! Poptropica is in good hands, and I know there are many poptropicans including I, who want to make sure of it.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
