Walkthrough by Slanted Fish, Brave Tomato, & Trusty Biker

Introduction: Comic Shop

First, go to Super Power Island (if you are not already on it). Go inside the Comic Shop, and walk to the right until you see a person dressed like a nerd. Talk to him, and when you ask him who he is, he will introduce himself as Ned Noodlehead.


Ask Ned if he has anything other than comic books. He will give you an item called The Superhero’s Handbook which you can read if you go to your inventory and click on “Examine”.


Moving along, exit the Comic Shop.

All You Need to be a Superhero

Next, go inside the Masks & Capes building. Talk to the man on the left to obtain a Super Hero ID, which identifies you as an official superhero.


On the right, there are several superhero costumes to choose from. Clicking on one of the dummies dressed in a superhero costume will show a Costumizer window where you can choose to wear some of the superhero clothes.


Leave the Masks & Capes building, and go to the left until you have passed through the water and see a big green meteor. Talk to the prison warden, and he will give you Super Villain Files (which can be Examined).


Walk left and talk to the lady officer, who will give you a pair of Anti-Power Handcuffs.


Now move all the way to the right until you see a sign which says “Down Town.” Click the sign (or near it), and do it again on the street you appear at, and you should arrive downtown.

You will see a bank. The police officers nearby tell you that one of the escaped prisoners, Copy Cat, is inside the bank.


They’re having trouble catching her – that’s when you step in!

How to catch Copy Cat

Go inside the bank. Run over to the left, and Copy Cat will make duplicates of herself. The copies of her will each rush to a spot somewhere in the bank, and the last (real) Copy Cat drops a smoke bomb. (Because of the smoke, you will have to be quick to catch all the copies of Copy Cat, or else your character will run out of fresh air.) All you have to do is run into every copy of Copy Cat.


Most of the copies should be easy to reach, but there are two copies standing on the lamps, and they are hard to reach. To reach one of them, you must jump onto the gray circle, then jump on the ledge next to it (to the left of it), then from the ledge, jump to the light. Then, go back down to catch the others.


To catch the other one, jump onto the brown box with a glass window (on the right side), then jump on the ledge next to it (to the right of it), then from the ledge, jump to the light. After that, go down to catch the other copies. Ride the elevator (located on the right) up (by pressing the up arrows) to the second floor to catch more copies. The last copy should be Copy Cat, and when you run into her, you will use your Anti-Power Handcuffs and capture her.

A copy of The Daily Paper should appear after you defeat her saying that Copy Cat has been defeated.


After you capture Copy Cat, you will be transported back to the County Prison, where Copy Cat has been recaptured.

How to catch Speeding Spike

Now, go back to the Down Town area. Move all the way to the right until you see a “Subway” sign. Near the sign should be some stairs going downward. Click on the steps to go down. You will appear at the Subway Station. The police officers will tell you that Speeding Spike is in the subway train when you talk to them. Go to the right where you will see a train. Go inside by clicking on it.


Move all the way to the right until you see Speeding Spike, who is on the last train carriage. To catch him, you must avoid bumping into him as much as you can to tire him out. Lure him to the area where you started by getting close to him, then not letting him catch you when he tries to.

Eventually, as you keep jumping over him to avoid getting whacked, you and Spike will move from train carriage to train carriage until you are back at the train carriage you started on.

Spike will slip on the puddle of water. Walk up to him to handcuff him.


Again, a copy of The Daily Paper will appear saying that Speeding Spike had been caught. Close it, and you will be brought back to the County Prison, where you will see that Spike is back in jail.

spike paper

Go back to the Down Town area. From there, you can choose to fight three more villains: Crusher, Ratman, or Sir Rebral. You cannot fight Betty Jetty yet, because she is the last one. Here’s how to defeat the remaining villains:

How to catch Sir Rebral

Go to the City Park, which is on the left side of Down Town. It will show you where Sir Rebral is. (Fun fact: Sir Rebral’s name is a play on the word cerebral, a scientific word relating to the brain. Sir Rebral has telekinesis, the ability to move things with the mind.)


Walk around the City Park and look for the movable rock. It is gray and round. As you move around the City Park you will notice that the ground will occasionally fly up and might hit you.

Move the rock so that it is in a place where the ground will fly up at. Try to get the rock to fly up so that it hits Sir Rebral. If it doesn’t hit him, keep trying until it does. When he levitates rocks at you, you have to move behind him so that they hit him, and then, he raises the ground when it hits him so you move the rock under him and stand next to it so it hits him.


This may be a little tricky for some. You may need to get the swirling rocks around Sir Rebral to hit him, so that he’ll “get mad”, and THEN use the movable rock to hit him. When Sir Rebral is hit, walk over to him to handcuff him.


Again, a copy of The Daily Paper will appear saying that Sir Rebral has been caught.

rebral paper

Close it, and you will be brought back to the County Prison, where Rebral is back behind bars.

How to catch Ratman

Go to the City Park, and run left until you see a public restroom. Enter it, and go down the hole inside.


You will be brought to the sewer entrance. Move to the left until you see a red wheel. Turn it to start moving downwards. When the water stops, move to the right until you see some bricks.

Hop on them to find another red wheel. Click on it to turn it, and the water will go up again, but not completely to the top. Swim left and you should find a door you can enter through- enter it. You should now be in the Sewer Room. Try to avoid all the rats, as they will knock you over if you bump into them.

Jump up to the top right corner of the Sewer Room, where you should see a red wheel. Click on it to turn it, and it will sprinkle water over the Ratman and his flies. Ratman’s flies will leave him, but unfortunately, they will start following you!


Move quickly to avoid getting stung by the flies, because getting stung will knock you over, slowing you down. Quickly make your way to Ratman to handcuff him.


Once again, a copy of The Daily Paper will appear saying that the Ratman has been caught.

ratman caged

Close it, and you will be brought back to the County Prison, where Ratman is now caged.

How to catch Crusher

Go to the City Park, and move all the way to the left, where you will see a sign that says “Junkyard.” Click on the sign to go to the Junkyard. If you talk to the police officers at the Junkyard, they will tell you that they are having trouble catching the Crusher.

Jump onto the fence, then onto a few boxes and stuff above the fence, until you get to Crusher’s platform.


Try your best to avoid getting whacked, because if you do you will need to jump through everything all over again. From Crusher’s platform, jump onto some nearby red cans on the right side.

You will see a wooden tower-like thing above you. Jump as high as you can to the it, and keep jumping until you reach the top, where you will see a crane. Enter it, and you will be shown a Magnet Control panel. Drag the control’s lever to the other side, and you will see a can above Crusher drop on him.

magnet control

Then, just as you think you’ve beaten him, Crusher comes alive again, and this time, he’s throwing cans at you! Avoid getting hit by the cans as they will knock you over, slowing you down.

crusher can

Climb back up to the Magnet Control again, and drag the lever back to the other side. When you do, Crusher will be defeated. Walk over to him to handcuff him.


Again, a copy of The Daily Paper will appear, this time saying that the Crusher has been caught.


Close it, and you will be brought back to the County Prison, where Crusher is back behind bars.

I Believe I Can Fly

Now that you have defeated 5 villains, go talk to the retired superhero on top of The Daily Paper building on Main Street. He’ll tell you you’re ready for one more thing – which you’ll find in the phone booth.


Go back down and answer the ringing telephone by clicking on the phone booth. When you answer the phone, you will be granted the ability to fly!


This power lasts as long as you want, but it is only available on Super Power Island. To de-activate it, just click on the new “Flying” icon that appears at the bottom left corner of the gamescreen, and click it again to activate it again. When you feel you’re ready, follow the instructions below to defeat your last opponent, Betty Jetty!

How to catch Betty Jetty

Go up to the very top of the Skyscraper, which is in Down Town. She will fly away, and you must chase her. Make sure your flying power is activated!


Then, go and chase her through the skies! She will start throwing green energy orbs at you. There are basically three types of attacks, but it’s difficult to have a solid strategy for them. Just try your best to avoid them. If you’re hit 5 times, you have to start chasing her again.


These are the moves she pulls and the strategies for getting past each one:

  1. Singular orb attack: This is when she only throws one of the green balls. Generally, if you don’t move, the ball will just fly around wildly and eventually disappear. However, you’ll need to move if it gets too close at the beginning, or it’ll whack you.
  2. Line split: This is when there are about four orbs and they part to give an opening. You can try to fly through the opening or stick to the sides away from the rest of the orbs.
  3. One at a time tracers: This is when there are about four orbs, but they come at you one at a time. They will try to follow your movements and fly where you fly, so be careful! Try flying in an S shape to elude the attack, but don’t get hit.

When you are close enough to her, bump into Betty Jetty to capture her! When she is captured, Ned Noodlehead (the Comic Shop owner) will appear, and knock Betty over.


Again, walk over to the villain to apprehend her. A copy of The Daily Paper will appear saying that Betty Jetty had been caught. (Except this time, Ned Noodlehead gets all the glory! Injustice, I tell you!)


Close it, and you will be brought back to the County Prison, where you will see that she is safely back into her jail cell.

Claiming the reward

For all that hard work, you’ll want a reward, right? To claim it, go to the City Park, where you will see a hot dog stand. Talk to the hot dog seller, and then jump onto the hot dog cart to get a Hot Dog.

Go back to the Comic Shop, and talk to Ned Noodlehead. He will offer to trade his medallion (which was awarded to him because he’d knocked over Betty Jetty) for a hot dog. Accept the offer, and the hot dog will be given to him, and you will receive the Super Power Island Medallion and credits to spend in the Poptropica Store. Congratulations!

  • According to the Poptropica Adventures Nintendo DS game, Ned Noodlehead and Betty Jetty are siblings.
  • The island description, as well as some dialogue within the quest, refer to the object that collided into the prison as a “meteor.” This is technically inaccurate, as meteors are shooting stars. The correct term is meteorite.
  • Hazmat Hermit, the guy beside the County Prison meteorite, is also a Poptropica Creator alias.
  • The old superhero on top of The Daily Paper says, “Remember, with great power comes great responsibility,” after you’ve received the flying power. This is a reference to the famous line in Spider-Man.

  3. perfecthamburger says:

    I really cant do Sir Rebrels Bit. Its so confusing, ive moved the rock but the little rock still comes up and hits me *not taking the movable rock with it*

  4. Smart Owl says:

    HELP!!! I finished every villain except for Betty Jetty. I get the flying ability, but when I tried to go down town to defeat her, the policeman said I couldn’t go through. He said the professor had something for me. I go back, but she says the same thing. I check my inventory to see if the handcuffs are still there, BUT THEY WEREN’T!!!! HELP!!!!

    • Fuzzy-B says:

      It could just be a minor glitch, just log out and wait a little while and log back in. If it is still not working after you log back in then you will probably have to restart the island.

    • Samwow5 says:

      Move the rock so that it is in a place where the ground will fly up at. Try to get the rock to fly up so that it hits Sir Rebral. If it doesn’t hit him, keep trying until it does. This may be a little tricky for some of you. Some say that you may need to get the swirling rocks around Sir Rebral to hit him, so that he’ll “get mad”, and THEN use the movable rock to hit him. When Sir Rebral is hit, walk over to him to handcuff him.

  5. cool bite(NET-GEAR ZERO) says:

    HEY, A GLITCH. I found a glitch.

    go in the water and use you fly power and fly straight with you feet of body in the water and when you hit main street go down you are on the road you can’t see your Poptropican cuz its in the road.

  6. Sticky Clown,Poptropical Explorer says:

    Did you know that there’s an old superhero on top of the Daily Paper Building? The policewoman on main street told me so! Before you can fly,you have to take a ride on the bench lift thingy. There are different things to talk at different times,which are: before starting the island,after getting the ID,just before getting your flying power (turns out he gave you it!),after you get the flying power,and after defeating Betty Jetty and finishing the island.

  7. donutcupcakes says:

    You guys arre wrong about speedy spike. You don’t tire him out, you lure him to the first car so that he can trip on the wet floor sign.

    Slanted Fish: You do have to avoid bumping into him, though.

  8. donutcupcakes says:

    Also, you’re wrong about Sir Rebral. First, when he levitates rocks at you, you have to move behind him so that they hit him, and then, he raises the ground when it hits him so you move the rock under him and stand next to it so it hits him.

    Slanted Fish: The guide wasn’t “wrong,” as it has helped many people, but I’ve added your tip in as well to improve it.

  9. junkfood87 says:

    I need help in mainstreet when you have 2 go to downtown the police keeps on stoping me even though I have my id

  10. anomyus says:

    so helpful…but i got confused when you said go to the junkyard go all the way left..its right..not to knight pick but thnks SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much

  11. jenna says:

    great guide for a great island, but is there anyway to take off the clothes you have to wear for this?

    Slanted Fish: Click on the green shirt button at the top and pick any character, then click on your clothes you want to remove and click Accept.

  12. Thirsty Wolf says:

    Please help me! I can’t get through Ratman’s flies(bees?). I can pass the rats easily and jump on the pipes and stuff, I just can’t get through that wall of evil bugs!

    Slanted Fish: You’ll need to wait for the flies to go away from the area you want to move to before moving, but be quick about it. 🙂

    • bella says:

      if you go on youtube type in poptropica super power island walkthrough and one of the videos is by thinknoodles (i know it sounds funny but it really works) and the walkthrough really helped me and millions of other people 🙂

  13. face thin says:

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Spending some
    time and actual effort to generate a superb article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to get
    nearly anything done.

  14. Susan Peytonatorღ says:

    The man officer in front of the bank has a soft pretzel, and I’m just like “WHY DO YOU HAVE A PRETZEL, THIS IS NO TIME FOR EATING”

  15. Silver Bubbles says:

    This island was awesome! Flying is so fun, I kept doing it for like 10 minutes. Thanks Slanted Fish and the rest.

  16. Fierce Owl says:

    I think it saves time if you get the hot dog before battling Sir Rebral, because you’re there anyway and when it’s time for you to get the medallion you’ll already have it, not have to go back for it!

  17. bella says:

    i noticed that some people still can’t figure out how to complete the island and if you go on Youtube type in Poptropica super power island walkthrough and there will be a video with stars on the side of the title of the video and it is by thinknoodles and it has helped millions of people and i hope it helps the people that are still having trouble!

  18. red lizard/happy berry/moody tuna /brian/poptropica rules! says:

    lava boys, huh? in poptropi-con, it has lava twins. they look so much alike!

  19. AydenSchrader says:

    amazing finished in 30 minutes instead of 30 days lol thx for they dedication and detailed writing of these walkthroughs

  20. QStar272 aka Short Lobster says:

    i noticed that when i talked to the old superhero guy, he said the same thing as Spongebob said to Patrick in one of the episodes. 😀

  21. Prickly Catfish says:

    Tip: Don’t just keep following Betty Jetty, you eventually have to bump into her.
    Made the mistake of spending 10 minutes retrying expecting some cutscene to play before I tried bumping into her after several waves of those green bullet things.

    ‘Thanks to you, Sir Rebral is behind bars’
    ‘Thanks to you, Crusher is behind bars’
    ‘Thanks to you, Copy Cat is behind bars’
    ‘Thanks to you, Ratman is behind bars’
    ‘Thanks to you, Speeding spike is behind bars’

    Ned Noodlehead pushes Betty Jetty.
    “I gave the medalion to Ned Noodlehead”

    Honestly. They had a good joke potential, but horribly implemented. I mean how stupid…?
    It’d honestly be funny if they made it like, Ned went on several breaks, and happened to be like a bystander in each villain’s defeat (i.e. Ned eating pretzels with the cops whilst you defeat the villain, and he winds up in the shot somehow)
    All I got from that ending was “We are a city of jerks.”

    But… I got my medal now so time to leave that island in the dirt.

    • Super Club says:

      I understand completely! and felt the same way! But you can’t blame Ned for this… the newspaper reads, “Ned Noodlehead saves the day! ‘I couldn’t have done it without the help of another hero.’ Noodlehead says.” They can’t specify who because all Poptropicans have different names! Glad I read this, though; puts me a little more at ease! 😉 XD

  22. Farheen says:

    this is a good guide, but u could specify things a bit clearer. ignore people who say this is terrible, because it isnt!!! just because i didnt finish it doesnt mean i should give up!

  23. Super Club says:

    For those struggling with Betty Jetty: Stay on the side, hidden from view, for about eight shots. As soon as BJ’s orbs are about to leave the screen, fly out and hit her (I hid in the bottom left corner) to defeat her. Good luck and I hope this helps! I created a second account because I was about to finish all islands on my old one and came back to this island. I forgot how fun it was!
    To PHB editors/authors: You may want to add this into the guide as a tip! And I love this guide. I stopped using it a little while ago so I could accomplish islands on my own. I could only do so because PHB gave my a feel and rhythm to how islands work. Could I ever become an author or guest post on this? It’s my dream! Thanks guys, I love you!

    slantedfish: The thing is, her orbs can still sense where you are even if you’re off-screen, but that might still lessen your chances of being hit. Also, if you have any guest post ideas, feel free to contact us! 🙂

  24. Poptropican says:

    Hi! Um, Scary Tomato, sort of off topic… Well two things, first, some of these comments were commented before I was born and second, My avatar is messed up with closed eyes and I cant customize. Do you know how to fix? Thx, threemonkeys5

    Oh, wait none of the comments were before I was born

    slantedfish: Try Ctrl + Shift + R to randomize your character (note: this changes your entire appearance). Also, time still existed before you were born… 😛

  25. Marge says:

    I just started playing this game again, and I had no idea how to play this island and this really helped me!! Thanks!!

  26. Shiny Spinner says:

    Thanks for the Walkthrough. I can’t get past Sir Rebral though! It’s really tricky. But I finally figured it out. thanks!

  27. modicitus says:

    The island keeps glitching! for example no matter what i try, the game wont let me go down town. Also every time i try to where a mask, it just gives me weird hair, but my cloths usually stay the same. What’s wrong?

  28. Vanessa says:

    The police officer won’t let me pass to go and talk to the scientist and warden. he keeps saying the exact same thing when i want to go right. 😡

What's popping, Poptropicans?
