Pop 5: Popular Villains of Poptropica 🦹‍♀️

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Smart Icicle. Enjoy!

Hi! Smart Icicle here, and I would like to share a Pop 5 list for the greatest villains of Poptropica. They’re based on all your votes in my poll a while back. Now to announce these fan favorites:

#5: Zeus

“Angry Zeus” by BrittScarlet

The lightning king of all Greek gods! Zeus is infamous in Poptropica, having (spoiler) tricked the player twice in both Super Villain Island and Mythology Island. Mythology fans can’t help but be intrigued by Zeus!

#4: Myron Van Buren

“Myron Van Buren” by Brave Tomato (1313cookie)

The main hunter (and stalker) of Survival Island, Myron Van Buren is well known for hunting down the player for sport — as well as for his iconic cry of “Tally ho!”

#3: Binary Bard

“Binary Bard” by Gentle Dolphin

The cyborg Poptropican himself, and also a former alias among the Poptropica Creators, we have Binary Bard in third. Binary Bard, also known as Modred, reveals himself at the end of Astro Knights Island. People might favor him if they enjoyed the plot twist or his style — if anyone knows how to look good as a cyborg, it’s Binary Bard.

#2: Ringmaster Raven

“Ringmaster Raven” by ray-of-flight

The one who hypnotized the carnies of Monster Carnival Island out of a tragic past, Ringmaster Raven is a dedicated villain. Many fans are of the opinion that Ringmaster Raven was good because he helped the player and Edgar, and the monster he became was a result of how unjustly he was treated, while others may think that’s he’s nuts and definitely evil (the comments of a recent PHB Pop Petition post sure had a lively debate on this!). After looking at his past as Bird Boy, Raven definitely deserves a soft spot in our hearts.

We are at our final stop. Now to introduce the greatest villain of all time!

#1: Dr. Hare

“Dr. Hare and Dr. Beev’s first date” by HfEvra

It’s the evil bunny himself, Dr. Hare! Since his first debut in the original 24 Carrot Island, Dr. Hare has been saying that he will one day rule the world. But despite all the iterations of 24 Carrot we’ve seen over the years, he’s never succeeded in his villainy.

Recently, Dr. Hare’s had a new friend: Dr. Beev! Like a dynamic duo, Dr. Beev has everyone’s attention while Dr. Hare is busy making plans. Both Beev and Hare have been celebrated by fans and in Poptropica events like Hoptropica. Congratulations, Dr. Hare, on the title of fan favorite villain — and Dr. Beev for being a recent fan favorite sidekick of sorts.

  1. I personally think that Raven is so misjudged…all he got was being tortured! I wish he could get revenge on the town people or as I say stinky brats!! I tell you brats!

  2. The others seem right at the place…. although I would say Dr. Hare is overrated…mostly I think that because people might enjoy seeing him fail….Raven is underated.

  3. Oh wow, I’m flattered that my Beev x Hare drawing was used for this post (though for some reason it doesn’t seem to load for me), and this was quite a good post aswell! I’m glad to see Raven made his way to the list.

    1. Oh haha you are thinking of Martin van Buren, not Myron van Buren, but the names are similar. Good eye pointing that out!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
