Ask Poptropica Siri #2: super villains, powers, and pets

Ask Poptropica Siri is a Q&A segment here on the PHB where you, dear readers, are invited to send in your Poptropica questions to have them answered with all the wisdom you can expect from a Smart Icicle.

Welcome back everyone! From all your questions last time, looks like everyone wants to know more about me in Poptropica. Well, I’m happy to answer! Time to get on the question train.

Who is your favorite villain? ~Pegs

I have lots of favorite villains from Poptropica, glad you asked that. My favorite villains are Dr. Hare, Captain Crawfish, Black Widow, and Binary Bard. Not only are they the aliases of the Poptropican Creators irl, but they also make great appearances in the game. We meet these villains in Super Villain, 24 Carrot, Counterfeit, Skullduggery, and Astro Knights Island. Sometimes in Reality TV as well.

Who is your favorite Super Power Island villain? ~Friendly Shell

I liked Copy Cat and how she makes copies of herself. If my Poptropican could choose a super power, I would want hers.

Who is your favorite pet/follower? ~Sliver Horse

My favorite pet is the bunny because it looks so cute in the game. My favorite followers are the Alicorn and Gary from SpongeBob Island: Kamp Koral. It would be cool if Poptropica added more magical creatures soon (if there’s ever a phoenix follower in Poptropica, I’m buying it since I have a LEGO set of one).

🧠 Ask Poptropica Siri #1: Favorite islands, Fairytale frenzy, and fashion perfection

Ask Poptropica Siri is a Q&A segment here on the PHB where you, dear readers, are invited to send in your Poptropica questions to have them answered with all the wisdom you can expect from a Smart Icicle.

What is your favorite island? ~Pegs

That’s a good question! I have many favorites so it is hard to choose just one. But, I like 24 Carrot Island the best! I have had a laugh when meeting Dr. Hare with the Dr. Hare costume. Still wondering where he is after he flew into outer space. 🐰🌌

My second favorite island would be Skullduggery. I’m a big fan of pirates. Plus, I enjoyed meeting Captain Crawfish and the ships in the island.

Where is Rumplestiltskin? ~AMOGUS SUS

Well, no one knows. He might be planning something right now! I know that there’s going to be more mischief from him, so let’s just sit tight for now. 😈 Although, thanks to the fanfic challenge, there are so many new stories where Rumplestiltskin returns to Fairytale Island. I am wondering if the Creators will be able to change the cliffhanger at the end of the island…

What is the best costume for you? ~Dangerous Dragon

My best costume has to be the one I’m wearing right now (see the Ask Poptropica Siri pic above!). I got the kimono through the ASG and the boba tea from Card Collector. Also I have to point out my favorite costume is Slanted Fish’s kimono, bonsai tree, and genie combo. That’s what inspired me to wear kimonos on Poptropica. I also thought that Incredible Joker’s costume was cool!

Finally, as this is my first official post as a contributor on the PHB, allow me to introduce myself to all you readers!

You may have seen my other guest posts on the PHB, or perhaps my site, Smart Icicle’s Blog! When I first sent my draft for Ask Poptropica Siri and the PHB asked me to be a contributor, I almost fell off my chair. I am very excited for the experiences that lie ahead of me on the PHB. So before I pop off, here’s a little more about me…

I have been playing Poptropica forever. I like to draw, and even though I’m not good at it, it still makes me happy. I also enjoy watching SpongeBob, reading The Hunger Games, and participating in PHB activities and Creators’ Blog contests. You can add me on Poptropica with the username Target1051.

See you in the next one, Poptropicans!

Welcome to Ask Poptropica Siri 🧠

Hey Poptropicans—this is a guest post by Smart Icicle, who is bringing back a Q&A series to the PHB. Got a Poptropica question? Ask Poptropica Siri!

Hello fellow Poptropicans! I decided to start a new ask series on the PHB. Remember Ask the Joker, where you send various questions to Incredible Joker? Sadly, the Joker is no longer around in the Pop community, but his Q&A segment inspired this one.

Welcome to Ask Poptropica Siri! Like the old series, how it works is that you, the readers, send me your Poptropica-related questions by comment or email, and I’ll answer them with all the wisdom you can expect from a Smart Icicle. I will randomly select a few questions and answer them in each post, which will come every two weeks.

How can you send in your questions to Ask Poptropica Siri?

That’s a great question! You can use the following methods:

  • 📧 Send an email to askpoptropicasiri (at) gmail (dot) com. This way, you’ll get to keep your questions a surprise when they get answered on the blog.
  • 💬 Comment on the latest Ask Poptropica Siri post. Your questions will be publicly visible before they appear in a Q&A post, but this allows others to interact with your question if they so choose.

Now put on your thinking caps and let’s get the Pop questions going. See you soon, Poptropicans!

Ask the Joker #7: Naming nonsense, queuing quests, and a hurtling Hare

Ask the Joker is a Q&A segment here on the PHB where you, dear readers, are invited to send in your Poptropica questions to have them answered, with wit, wisdom, and wisecracks, by one Incredible Joker.

What is your name? ~MaryannTheConqueror

There are many unique names in Poptropica. My name is Incredible Joker but you can call me Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV. Or make something up, I don’t care. 🤣

I got jokes.

What is your quest? ~MaryannTheConqueror

I have hobbies and pastimes, no quests. 😂😅👍 Currently, though, I suppose I am trying to get a new character in a game I am playing. Halfway there and fourteen days left, wish me luck. 😛👍

If you want a more Poptropica-related answer, I guess I’m trying to keep patience until new islands arrive. 🙃 I would like to finish the few I haven’t if they decide to add them back someday, and I guess to see how quickly I can do the new ones.

A colorless world, as envisioned for the upcoming Goofball Island.

What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen Dr. Hare flying through space? ~MaryannTheConqueror

This one took a bit more time than the others. I tried to be ‘accurate’ but it’s hard to do this math. 😅 Assuming he is 30-40 and the average size for a male of that age, he’s about 196.9 pounds with an arm length of around 25 inches. Looking back over the scene with him in space, he moves his arms about 5 times per second. The formula would then be U≈3*5*0 as he doesn’t use his abilities to propel himself, making his velocity 0, which I guess makes sense. At least that’s what I got. (Assuming he isn’t carrying any coconuts, of course.)

You try calculating the airspeed velocity of an unladen Dr. Hare flying through space…

Ask the Joker #6: Furry fave, freedom, and flying

Ask the Joker is a Q&A segment here on the PHB where you, dear readers, are invited to send in your Poptropica questions to have them answered, with wit, wisdom, and wisecracks, by one Incredible Joker.

I noticed that you have a Dr. Hare costume on your Poptropican, do you like Dr. Hare or are you a fan of someone else? ~Smart Icicle

I don’t really use that costume too much, but I actually also have another account with the same outfit in white. 🙃👍 I think that Dr. Hare leaves an impression on most players, and I think that’s because he’s usually the first villain people face. (Unless you count the spider from Early Poptropica 😂).

I don’t really have a specific reason that I like him so much, aside from that and his general story. Some villains you just want them to have a (somewhat) happy ending!

Hi my question is what do you love most about being a staff writer on the PHB? ~Dangerous Dragon

Fan art! 👍😂 I’ve never had art drawn of me before now. 😛 But really though, it’s nice to help out with this blog and like I’ve mentioned before, to have the freedom that I do with these posts I make. (In fact, I wrote part of this one while eating lunch at work! 😅)

I have a few other ideas for PHB posts in the works, that Slanted Fish has been helping me with 👍 (and being very patient with me 😂😅). I suppose that’s another part of what I enjoy about being here: how much the other PHB staff care about the blog and the game.

What was your favorite Poptropica (Flash) glitch? ~Greedy Shadow

There have been many, many glitches over Poptropica history. Unfortunately many of them are not helpful to the player. 😂😅 But I suppose my favorite one would have to be the small “flying” glitch.

It might not work now, but back in the Flash days, you could “fly” by using any spacebar-activated item action while walking off a building, and would keep going until animation was done. Here’s a YouTube video that captures it in action:

If done right, the glitch could sometimes help you get to places you weren’t supposed to be at yet. Of course it, like all glitches, it was kind of iffy on working most of the time.
