Glitching

Are you ready to unlock some super secrets and become a glitcher?

Glitching, the term used for using glitches to one’s advantage, has a big part in the Poptropica community, and its users are known as glitchers. On this page and on the “Glitching” tab above, we link to several resources for Poptropica glitching.

Here are overviews for each of the tools listed, plus more cool tricks to try.


📺 Ad Transporter: Poptrogiverse »

This website developed by KeithSammut lets you teleport to various retired advertisement buildings on Poptropica so you can play the games, earn the prizes, and just enjoy it for the nostalgia.

👚 Avatar Studio Gift »

ASG gift

Our Avatar Studio Gift is a present to the Poptropica community, containing a compendium of usernames that will allow access to rare (typically uncustomizable) costumes on Poptropica by way of the Avatar Studio Glitch, commonly known as ASG.

🎩 Clothing Parts »

This Google document compiled by various glitchers gives the IDs for various clothing parts that Poptropicans can wear. It is best used with iPop (see below).

🎏 Item ID List »

This Google document compiled by various glitchers gives the IDs and other useful info for various items you can add to your account. It is best used with iPop (see below).

🎛 iPop »

iPop is a software developed by Santorno that allows you to easily modify your Poptropican account to your liking. It can add any items to your account, add any clothing features to your character, give you a 5-star battle-ranking, and more!

ipop

To download this software, click here. From the next page, click on the green download button to begin your download. Once iPop is downloaded to your computer, you will need to unzip the folder to unlock its contents. Note that iPop does not work on Windows 10 or newer operating systems.

For Windows computers, use iPop.exe for the program, and for Macs, use iPop.jar. You’ll want to use whatever the latest version is (the one with the highest number).

When you open the software, you will be prompted to enter the login details of the Poptropica account you wish to modify, along with an iPop key. You can find the community key in the README.txt file.

The PHB can verify that it is safe to enter your username and password on this tool—your account will not be stolen. However, this tool may not work on newer operating systems. By using iPop, you agree not to redistribute the software publicly without permission.

🎎 Modify A Poptropican »

map pop

Modify A Poptropican (or MAP for short) is a browser tool developed by Red Lizard, no download required. Simply enter your login information (don’t worry, it’s safe), pick the parts you want to change on your character, and click submit. Voila! This program also includes a hair and skin tone Colorizer accessible via the top menu.

🎊 Multiverse Maker »

There’s the traditional way of making a Multiverse room, and then there’s the glitcher’s way. With this tool from KeithSammut, creating a room is just one click away. In addition to regular rooms, you can create ad-based multiplayer rooms that will last up to 4 days! Invite your friends over for a Poptropica party!

🔮 Name Genie »

Just by filling out a quick form on this site by KeithSammut, you can automatically have your very own custom named account on Poptropica!

namegenie

Please read and understand the following before sending a request:

  1. Custom names can only be applied to new accounts (as in, not existing accounts), so you will need to specify the username, password, and gender you want for the account you want.
  2. Names that are not a standard Poptropica name (see list here) will appear in-game (in common rooms and the friends list) as Poptropican Lizard, but will retain their custom appearance on the Avatar Studio. You may request up to four parts to the name (three spaces maximum) or else there will be an error. We recommend one or two parts. Be creative!
  3. Note that inappropriate names will be blocked by the filter.

Have fun with your new custom name!

    Is this supposed to happen? i used medusa on myself and it gave it to me and the only way i can get rid of it is if customize it away!

  2. fishmcfishfish says:

    new glitch!!(DO THIS BEFORE BEATING THE ISLAND) go to spy island then look for the random person. wait for their hair to get zapped off, and then customize them. you should get a top hat the same color as your hair

  3. greedyshadow says:

    I found another glitch! In Wild West Island, when you drink the shrinking soda, and then hop on your horse, dismount, then get back on, wait till it poofs you, your horse will make your horse bigger! 😀

    • greedyshadow says:

      Also the SUI customizing glitch doesn’t seem to work. And the dog, cat, and robot glitch sort of works, I could get them on the customizing window, its just that I can’t customize most of them. 😦

  4. Detective M.S.B says:

    Fishy, how do I get the ‘Customize Everything’ glitch to work? I try to customize the racing girl in plaid’s lips on Monkey Wrench, but it never works for me.

    slanted Fish: That glitch doesn’t work anymore, but you can use ASGs to get lots of cool costumes. 🙂

    • Lava Rock says:

      Apparently, there’s a new download, but I don’t know how to get to it! (If, of course, it exists.) PLEASE HELP!

  5. Just a quick question... says:

    Hey, so I tried downloading the iPop thing but when i click on iPop-R3.exe it says: This application was configured to use a bundled Java Runtime Environment but the runtime is missing or corrupted.

    Any suggestions?

  6. Little Singer says:

    I don’t really understand how to do get the gold cards from the Poptropica SWF cheat into my Poptropican’s inventory. Could someone give me a step-by-step version?

    • derrick says:

      Thats what ipops for, just type the item code, for example number 13 is the shark fin, if you type that in, well you get it!

    • derrick says:

      It’s simple, go to the Avatar Studio, type in a user name hit the re load button at least 5 times then go to your game and hit refresh, the button near the arrows at the top.

  7. tall socks disapproves says:

    I thought I might as well add this, although it’s not really a glitch:

    When using iPop, you don’t have to log all the way out. Just go to your friends lists and exit it, it sort of works as a replacement.

  8. EliteTrollBob says:

    I cannot enter my account! I log in, then the interactive loading sign comes up but goes on forever and I can click on the black to make the “Poptropica” logo freeze… HALP :(((

    • Friendly Foot (a girl) says:

      Um, I’m not totally sure if this will help but if you’re on incognito mode poptropica won’t work. If your on a regular browser try logging in on a different account and friendyiur main one. If that won’t work then maybe you could get the app and import the look and see if anything is wrong. Or try a friend’s computer…

  9. Silly Bubbles says:

    This is the message I get when I try to launch it.
    “The Java JAR file “iPop-R3.jar” could not be launched. Check the Console for possible error messages.”
    What should I do?

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Try re-downloading iPop and opening it again from the new download this time, discarding the old one.

      The issue seems to happen when you don’t properly sign out of an iPop session (by clicking sign out and then close at the bottom), and/or could be caused by checking the box that says ‘Remember me’ (which isn’t working in the R3 version).

      • Silly Bubbles says:

        Oh, okay! I’ll try that! Thanks!

        P.S. Can you add “slenderman2371” to to the asg list? Thanks again! 🙂

    • derrick says:

      Number 1 Theres way to much stuff in poptropica for that to happen. Number 2 You can add stuff like backgrounds and special effects to your player, but they have like 1% chance of glitchers ever finding them. Number 3 Ad costume codes like ad_dxd_ironman have expired and even if you typed them in things like ipop or M.A.P they would never appear.

  10. Sydney says:

    Do you have any more dummies with dummies in their closets?Please bring more!I am desperate!And I know I am stupid But PLEASE!!!!!!

  11. Loud Noodle says:

    Okay, so this glitch is weird. The Poptropica store deleted winter popgum from my items! When I tried to buy it again (when I had enough), it didn’t let me (but it didn’t say I didn’t have enough). Someone please HELP!!

  12. derrick says:

    Hey I got a new glitch! In sui islands, pick any character that you wan’t the facial hair from
    and put that character in your customize window. Go to the square wear it you see the customizable parts. then click it again. Then click the blue sign on the right. Pick any costume. Then the facial part should be their.

  13. james says:

    I think I found a new glitch but I’m not sure.I went Wild West Island while wearing Hades’ Helmet (from Mythology Island) and holding a shrink ray gun. Then I shrunk someone and I turned big! I shrink someone else and the effects reverse, I become normal sized again. (This doesn’t work on Home Island… and I’m pretty sure it only works on Non SUI islands.

  14. Kirby says:

    So… I tried out the Ad Transporter… And… uh…
    Here I am at Shark Tooth, an Island I hadn’t been to before using the Ad Transportor. http://s18.postimg.org/mnh8gxewp/poptripca_glitch_1.png Notice the inventory? The vent blueprints from 24 Carrot has mysteriously gotten into it! None of the other inventory sections that have these ad items included anything as strange as the blueprints.

  15. Blobfish says:

    An easy way to save outfits is to make a new account and put them in that outfit and then return to your normal account and ad them as your friend.

  16. turtles-_- says:

    Flight glitch -_-
    1. get a costume with a sword(samurai, sky hawk, masked hero, ***)
    2. costumize the sword
    3. get on a high place
    4. start running
    5. when you are about to fall off press space
    6. you should glide for a few seconds

    Double jump -_-
    1. do steps 1-3 in the flight glitch
    2. jump off and press space as soon as you jump
    3. if you hit the ground before you jump again then you start rolling

    *** ALMOST any handheld item that does something when you press space works(most store bought items from costumes should work)***

    I’M NOT SURE IF THE GLITCH IS 100% MINE!

  17. turtles-_- says:

    HELP! I can’t play any episode of survival island and i completed every islands besides the members only and most of the Bordem Busters! (It’s a problem with my account because I can play it on my friends account!) (It’s not a problem with my browser either) (log-out log on doesn’t work) (It might be my wifi but i still can play multiplayer games) plz HELP!

  18. Turtles-_- says:

    Room codes are the thing you put after the
    static.poptropica.com/framework.swf?
    Example:
    static.poptropica.com/framework.swf?desc=NabootiMain&island=Nabooti
    the desc=NabootiMain&island=Nabooti would be the room code

  19. Turtles-_- says:

    Could you devote a new place for the comment s there are so many and it keeps bumping me back up to the top of the comments because more r loading(i think)

    • Slanted Fish says:

      This page doesn’t display every comment all at once — you can view even more by clicking “older comments” near the top of the comments section. If it bumps you back to the top, just scroll down to find your comment among the more recent ones, which should be at the bottom.

  20. Turtles-_- says:

    Hey does this count as a glitch: When you get the bat rangs from the lego batman movie ad and knock someone back with it gravity wont work on them

  21. I just use this site sometimes says:

    I recently completed Red Dragon Island, and discovered that keeping the items used in training is a lot simpler than you’d think- I merely made sure I had the item I wanted to continue holding equipped before the dragon battle began. I still had said item when I left. You might want to address on the page that changing you skin color may not be required for this to work.

  22. I just use this site sometimes says:

    Also, I have a request. I take it that you yourself, Slanted Fish, have used the ad transporter before? I’d like if you could recommend certain ads that offer cool costume parts or effects that are only obtained through said ads. There are SO many ads on that transporter, and I don’t have the time to sift through them all for the coolest items. Any particular ads you’ve used?

    • Slanted Fish says:

      I have given the ad transporter a try, but not enough to know which ads have the “coolest items.” If you’re wondering what each ad contains, you can try searching for its corresponding post in the PHB post archives. We have written about many of the ads when they were around, though perhaps not all of them.

      If it’s clothing you’re after, you may want to check out the “Ad Attire” section of the Avatar Studio Gift page, which has costumes from lots of different ads.

  23. I just use this site sometimes says:

    Another question! Regarding the name genie- if I have my name changed through the name genie, but the name is a possible in-game combination, will it still show up as “Poptropican”? And if said new name is an in-game combo, ( Fierce Crown, for example, is my Poptropica provided name ), then will I still have to create a new account?

    • Slanted Fish says:

      With Name Genie, any custom name you create has to be a new account, meaning you can’t change the name of an account that already exists. If the name you choose is a possible in-game combo (like Fierce Crown), the name you chose will show up in-game. If not, it will show up as “Poptropican” in-game, but you can still see the custom name on the Avatar Studio. Hope that helps! 😉

  24. Red Tomato says:

    Hi! I need help. I want to play PoptropiCon Island but I do not want to lose my current outfit. And I am not a member so I cannot use the Closet. How can a non member save their current outfit?

  25. Mighty Fang says:

    Oh my gosh, the craziest glitch just happened to me!
    I signed in and went to the common room on Home Island. When it didn’t come up that quickly, I just gave up and pressed the back button, and it loaded fairly quickly. But then I saw the most monstrous character anyone could ever have seen in their life! (Sosososososososososooooooo sorry to anyone who’s outfit looks remotely similar to this.) She had bright, eye-scorching primrose-coloured hair that belonged to the purple surfer girl from Mythology Island, and brownish skin. She had a purple and pink striped tank top on, and I couldn’t even tell if she was wearing shorts or a skirt! And her mouth was grumpy. Enough said. And I was like, OMG PLEASE TELL ME THIS ISN’T MIGHTY FANG PLEEEEEEEEZ and I went into Friends, and it was like, First ya gotta save your game! and I was like oh, phew. Then I closed the tab because I had enough of this nonsense.

    • Mighty Fang says:

      Um, did I mention that Amelia was just asking me that question she asked, and I was like NO, and then I was like I’M READY TO GO, BUT THE ENTIRE TIME I COULDN’T MOVE THAT POPTROPICAN????

  26. Miss Fabulous says:

    Hi, Slanted Fish!
    Thanks for all the great glitches and help 🙂

    I’m using the amazing program iPop! I wanted to see the different items that I could put into my account using the Card ID’s. It’s really helpful to preview the items on the SWF links so I can see them. However, all card ID’s over Card ID 3376 cannot be viewed on the SWF links. Is there any way that I can view them?

    Sorry for the trouble and thanks for your amazing help! I love this website!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
