Who is your favorite Poptropica creature? 🦇

It’s time for a Poptropica popularity contest! As requested through this guest post by Smart Icicle, share your favorite non-Poptropican creatures from the game in the comments, and we’ll see who comes out on top.

Animal Kingdom: Come to me, jungle friends.

Hello! This is Smart Icicle. Now you may have recognized me from my poll on favorite villains (and its Pop 5 follow-up) or from a post on cultural connections of a famous Poptropica villain, Captain Crawfish.

This time, the focus is not on any villains, heroes, or islands.. it is going to be on animals. Allow me to ask a question: who is your favorite creature from Poptropica? Since there have been so many, instead of doing a poll, I’m asking everyone to share your faves in the comments of this post. To get you thinking, here are a few of mine:

There are lots more creatures listed on the Poptropica Wiki, but be sure to pick ones that aren’t also human Poptropicans!

So comment down below about your favorite creature(s) from Poptropica, and I’ll tally them up for a future Pop 5 post! Comments must be made by April 30 to be considered, and the top creatures will be announced sometime in May. See you soon, Smart Icicle out! 📚❄️

      1. I have trouble becoming friends with things that want to eat me, so not really.

      1. True, although in the end you kind of (sadly) turn him into a creature, ’cause he thinks he’s a chicken, but yes, he’s not actually a creature.

    1. Don’t worry Dangerous Dragon, it’s counted. Whoever picks a poptropican from the creature list will be counted under “Favorite Poptropican” category. Only one poptropican will be picked for the section. (Whichever Poptropican has the most votes).

  1. Well, I guess since I played the poll last time, I’m going to play this time as well. My votes on the mechanical owl Merlin! 😊 Also, forgot to mention just like last time you can only pick one animal (sorry all readers that have multiple favorites).

  2. Merlin the owl! He is so nice, and surprisingly willing to help you defeat his former master. He’s definitely my fave!

      1. If you went in the common room of Arabian Nights 2, the camel is in the common room, on a giant cushion.

    1. The camel is so cute!!!!! The only reason why I didn’t choose it is because it’s SUPER stubborn.

    2. Wait, if the thieves wanted the camel for some evil plot (I assume), then how did the camel get in the common room? Hmmm… very suspicious… 🤨

      My theories: The camel was a god and was forcing everyone to treat it kindly, the thieves were kind enough to be nice to it, or it was wearing the camo suit from Spy island and was hiding. If the third one is correct, then somehow, only we could see it.🤔

      1. Haha! Those are some very interesting theories! You should write a Popspiracy post!

  3. I also like the robotic crab from Steamworks, plus the robot SProcket.

    Hmmm…. I guess I’m into automatons more than living creatures…

      1. Hi White Fox, you could list all of your favorite creatures down, I’m fine with it.

  4. My votes are for the Nøkken (big surprise there), Sprocket, Merlin, the werewolf from Vampire’s Curse, the Mythology sphinx, the Dragotank, and lastly Fluffy from Spy Island.

      1. When you try to free the spy from the B.A.D agents, Fluffy is one of the guard dogs.

    1. How’d he even get in there in the first place??? *Sigh* And everyone thought it was Total that loved the Bon Bons…

  5. Elmer the Horse from Wild West Island. TBH he may be my favorite Poptropica character just in general. If you ever watch a walk through of Wild West Island, it’s like he was animated to have a personality when he moves. The horse literally smiles when he’s running yet looks super annoyed if he’s reduced to a simple trot. Feisty! I really hope they bring him back.
    P.S. You could say he’s a “free SPIRIT”!
    Ha! Get it? Like the movie? About the horse?

    1. I love Elmer so much! I have a horse in real life, named Wrangler, so I just kept accidentally calling Elmer “Wrangler”. 😄
      It was so much fun riding him! I always wished there would be an island where you got to ride a horse!
      Also what movie? I don’t watch a lot of TV. There’s a movie called “Free Spirit”?

      1. It’s this movie that’s coming out. I haven’t watched it, but I think it’s about a horse named Spirit. I don’t watch much TV either.😛

      2. The movie is “Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron.” Dreamworks made it back in 2002. It has some sweet music by Bryan Adams in it. One song, “Get Off My Back” literally makes me think of that mini game where you have to tame Elmer.

      3. Oh, thanks! I should probably watch it sometimes if it is like Wild West island! 👍

  6. My favorites are:
    Elmer, from Wild West
    Charlie, from Monkey Wrench
    Narf, from Mocktropica
    Merlin, from Astroknights
    Robotic crab, from Steamworks
    Puppy in the basement of the bank, from Ghost Story
    Camel from Arabian Nights
    Whiskers, from 24 Carrot
    CJ’s cat, from Shrink Ray
    Yep, that’s about it!

  7. My favorites:
    Camel (Arabian Nights)
    Narf (Mocktropica)
    Elmer (Wild West)
    Merlin (Astro-Knights)
    Senior Burrito (Timmy Failure)

    That’s all!

  8. Actually, here’s my new list:
    Fluffy (Spy Island)
    Camel (Arabian Nights)
    Merlin (Astro-Knights)
    Narf (Mocktropica)
    Elmer (Wild West)
    Senior Burrito (Timmy Failure)
    Cerberus (Mythology Island)

    Welp, it’s way longer then I assumed, but that’s it!

  9. I have a lot of favorites. My favorites are:
    Whiskers (24 carrot)
    Total (Timmy Failure)
    Narf (mocktropica)
    Dodo (Mystery of the Map)
    Booga whale (Shark Tooth)
    Sphinx (Mythology)
    Minotaur (Mythology)
    White whale (S.O.S.)
    Cuttlefish, sea dragon, angler fish (Mission Atlantis)

  10. I’ve never known why, but how come the Jersey Devil is abnormally creepy? It literally scarred me for life. When I did that part, I almost had a heart attack, and I knew it was coming!

    1. Same! So creepy how it just sits there and it still scares the heck out of me, even when I’ve played it before!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
