Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy Feather. Enjoy!
Dizzy Feather again, continuing with my theory about the Red Baron and Amelia. (Read part one on why the Baron is not the Queen of Fairytale here!) Anyway, in this post I will be discussing how I believe Amelia is a villain. I know it sounds ridiculous, right? But trust me, it’ll make sense.
Let’s start in Amelia’s clubhouse. Right at the doorway lies my first piece of evidence: the deed to Home Island. Although she says she got it to set up her shop, let’s think about it: who else owns a whole island? I can’t think of one in all of Poptropica, and if you ask me, owning an island sounds like something a villain would love.
On the shelf, we see a tea box with a silhouette of E. Vile, the villain from Legendary Swords. It’s probably nothing, but could it also be a hint of its return? Anyway, let’s get back on track…
In her home, we also see a picture of Amelia holding a trophy, with an angry Baron waving a wrench behind her. Another photo shows Xavier and Amelia flying in the plane we rode on in Monkey Wrench Island.
But look the way Amelia’s looking at Xavier and smiling… is it just me, or does she look nervous, like she just did something she doesn’t want him to know about? I think these two pictures are telling a story: Before we came along, Amelia’s co-pilot was Xavier, and one year during the great race, Amelia threw a wrench in the Baron’s plane, which is why the Baron threw one in Amelia’s later on. If I’m right, could that have been what started their rivalry in the first place?
Now over at the Baron’s cabin, there is a picture of the Baron throwing money from a bank down to a group of Poptropicans. If the Baron was a full-on villain, then why wouldn’t she keep the money for herself? Perhaps the bank was stealing money from the people and the Baron was returning it?
My final piece of evidence is in the Baron’s dialogue. After you complete the Baron’s Crusade, you can ask her three questions. When you ask if it’s just her and Ack, the Baron responds, “Mate, when you’ve been in the game as long as I have, you find trust is hard to come by.” I believe she is referring to Amelia breaking her trust at some point.
The Baron has been labeled the villain in the rivalry, but I believe that is wrong. As it once was said in Mocktropica: “There should be an enemy who’s been hiding in plain sight, but who could it be?”
Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Dizzy Feather. If you did, you might also enjoy part one of her theory about how the Red Baron is Not the Queen of Fairytale Island.
