Interpreting the Main Four’s dreams, pt. 2: Captain Crawfish โ›ด

Hello again, and welcome back to another dream interpretation! This time I’ll be investigating the mysterious dream world of the one and only Captain Crawfish.

Upon entering his dream, you see the interior of a ship. Bunk beds and hammocks, occupied by multiple sleeping Crawfish clones, slide back and forth in time to the tilting motion of the floating vessel. It may not seem like the most interesting dream at first glance, but when you view it from a deeper perspective it’s actually quite peculiar. ๐Ÿง

First, let’s focus on the main attraction; the various snoozing pirates (who are all just copies of Crawfish himself.) Dreaming of your doppelgangers could represent a multitude of things, but as I’m trying to keep this post a decent length, I’ll stick to the one that intrigued me most: self-reflection over past bad actions. In other words, remorse. Interesting.

Could Captain Crawfish be regretting his evil deeds?

There’s also something else I’ll mention concerning the carbon copies of Crawfish (try saying that five times fast): they’re asleep, and get very annoyed if you run into them and wake them up. Sleeping inside your own dream might mean that you’re oblivious or avoiding a situation during your waking hours. Hmm…

Snoozing away the day…

Moving on from the pirate doppelgangers, here’s something else I found a bit odd. Doesn’t everything in this dream look very old? The entire ship is plastered in barnacles and starfish, and there are cobwebs and algae hanging from the ceiling. If only the sky weren’t visible through those windows, I’d say it’d been sitting at the bottom of the sea for some time.

At this point, I think I have a vague idea of what Captain Crawfish’s dream could mean.

Based off of the carbon copies’ supposed meaning of self-realization, he’s been reflecting on his life of crime, and is starting to wonder whether he did the right thing. Was reducing Fort Ridley and its surrounding islands to little more than rubble really worth a chest of gold? It may seem far-fetched, but I see Crawfish as being the most likely to regret his actions out of the Main Four.

The clones being asleep and the ship having a neglected vibe also fit into this theory. The former represents ignorance and avoidance. Perhaps he now knows deep down what he did was wrong, but is trying to ignore this revelation for fear of damaging his reputation? And as for the apparently neglected ship, maybe he’s been struggling with this problem for a long time. Does he dare redeem himself and risk losing his dignity among the other villains?

Well, that’s all I’ve got to say today, folks. Stay tuned for my next two dream interpretations, and here’s to hoping Captain Crawfish sorts out his internal conflicts!

  1. some villains do deserve their own redemption arcs.

  2. Very cool deep dive! Itโ€™s interesting to consider characters like Crawfish as more than one-sided villains bent on evil; rather, they may appear tough but have their moments of self-doubt too.

  3. What if those sleeping Captain Crawfish clones are actually ghosts? They look pretty ghastly like some other ghosts in Poptropica weโ€™ve encountered. And I think that it can also represent his past coming back to haunt him,, hence the ghosts. Maybe he needs to face himself and own up to what he did. And fear of being ambushed might be a theme here too.

    Cool concept. I was wondering about Binary Bardโ€™s dream. Space and time are cool to explore since they are so versatile and you can do a lot of stories and ideas with that. Freezing time? Sweet. Maybe he is also struggling with his past too.

    What about Zeusโ€™s dream in the bonus quest? Just curious.

    1. I actually had that same thought about the clones resembling ghosts! Theyโ€™re not transparent like the others weโ€™ve seen, but they do have a sort of bluish glow.

      As for Binary Bardโ€™s dream, itโ€™s my personal favorite so Iโ€™m excited to interpret it. Such a sophisticated dream worldโ€ฆIโ€™m very impressed with Bardโ€™s brain, lol.

      Also, thanks for reminding me about Zeusโ€™s dream! I wasnโ€™t originally planning on including it, but it could be cool as a bonus.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
