Happy Lunar New Year, Poptropicans! 新年快樂！(xīn nián kuài lè)
Do you know your Chinese zodiac animal? Each creature symbolizes personality traits that correspond with the lunar calendar, and yours is determined by your year of birth, with one rotating every 12 years. We matched each one with a Poptropica character — read on to find yours!
You can also figure out which Pop character matches your astrological zodiac sign, which is based on your birth month, here! ♒️
🐀 If you were born in 1996, 2008, or 2020, you’re a Rat. You’re resourceful like Ratman from Super Power Island, who embraced the sewers and its rats for his own powers!
🐂 If you were born in 1997, 2009, or 2021, you’re an Ox. You’re strong like the half-bull Minotaur from Mythology Island!
🐯 If you were born in 1998, 2010, or 2022, you’re a Tiger. Like the Tigercopter on Astro-Knights Island, you can be a bit competitive!
🐰 If you were born in 1999, 2011, or 2023, you’re a Rabbit. This is the year for ubiquitous Dr. Hare — time for the elegant to shine.
🐲 If you were born in 2000, 2012, or 2024, you’re a Dragon. You’ve got confidence like the Cloud Dragon of Red Dragon Island, ready to defeat every evil thrown your way.
🐍 If you were born in 2001, 2013, or 2025, you’re a Snake. Like Medusa from Mythology Island, you’re a clever one not to be messed with.
🐴 If you were born in 2002, 2014, or 2026, you’re a Horse. You’ve got energy like El Mustachio Grande, prancing about the plains of Wild West Island with his legion of horses!
🐐 If you were born in 2003, 2015, or 2027, you’re a Goat. Like the half-goat, half-man Satyr from Mythology Island, you carry an aura of calm.
🐵 If you were born in 2004, 2016, or 2028, you’re a Monkey. Like Ack on the Baron’s ship, you’re clever and curious, with your wits about you.
🐓 If you were born in 2005, 2017, or 2029, you’re a Rooster. You’re observant and hardworking, like Ringmaster Raven, but hopefully towards better ends than revenge.
🐕 If you were born in 2006, 2018, or 2030, you’re a Dog. Like the three-headed Cerberus guarding Hades’ throne room on Mythology Island, you’re a loyal keeper.
🐷 If you were born in 2007, 2019, or 2031, you’re a Pig. Not only do you match the three little pigs from Fairytale Island in terms of species, you also think logically like they do.
There you go — the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac represented by Poptropica characters! Which one are you? Do you think it suits you? Anyway, enjoy the Lunar New Year if you celebrate, or just have a good one! Happy Year of the Rabbit — or whenever you’re reading this. 🙂

First Comment! I Am A Dragon! (BTW This Is A New Email Address BC I Got Locked Out Of My Old One)
Stay awesome, Dragon! 🐉
I think the first picture depicts the Summer Carnival in Japan instead of the Lunar New Year. The Poptropicans are wearing yukatas.
The artist, Gear, originally posted this piece as a (non-lunar) new year celebration, so technically neither. Still, it contains festive elements like the red lanterns and fireworks often seen during the Lunar New Year, and it’s also true the characters are wearing yukatas! 🙂
