Choosing your tribe for Poptropica is no small decision. You’ll fly your tribe’s colors on your personality profile and in the Poptropolis Games! Each tribe also comes with an exclusive common room to be shared only with other members of the tribe.
About the Tribes
There are eight tribes in Poptropica. Click on a name or icon to learn more about a tribe and its description, common room, and colors. Support your favorite tribe in the comments, and don’t forget to help them win in the Poptropolis Games!
This tribe hopes to have more than an inkling of victory in the Poptropolis Games. (You’ll never dismantle us cephalopods!)
Winning a competition as tough as the Poptropolis Games takes more than talent. It takes a burning desire to win.
Usually when you call somebody “yellow,” you’re calling them a scaredy cat, but this tribe takes it as a compliment.
Feeling lost? There’s only one route to the gold medal, and this tribe thinks they know which way to go.
The Nightcrawlers might look like pushovers, but they’re used to being used as bait. Watch out so they don’t hook you!
This tribe will rise and fall on the wings of their dreams. Maybe you can help them achieve such great heights!
Proving that good things come in small packages, the Nanobots are programmed for victory. Will you help them execute the gold-medal download?

How to choose (and change) your tribe
You can select your tribe by going to your personal profile on Poptropica. To do this, log in and and click on the Friends icon in the top right corner, which should look like your Poptropican’s face. Look for the box about your Tribe.
TO CHOOSE: It should say “Tribes” if you haven’t selected one. Click on the box, and it will prompt you to choose one of the tribes. Don’t worry, you can change it later (see below).
TO CHANGE: If you already belong in a tribe, it will show your tribe’s emblem in the box. Click on it, then click on “Change Tribe” at the bottom of the pop-up to switch to a different tribe.
Also, when you start on the Poptropolis Games, you’ll be prompted to choose a tribe to represent if you haven’t already selected one. Once you make your decision, you’ll be given a jersey with your tribe’s colors on it.
Tribal Common Rooms
Once you’re part of a tribe, you can enter its exclusive common room, which is only open to the other members of the tribe! It’s bigger and better than the ones you’ll find on Main Street. To get in, click on your tribe’s logo, and click “Join Room.”
It’s a great way to meet and befriend new tribal mates. Each tribe’s room looks different and has some hidden interactive elements, which you can discover in the PHB’s pages about each tribe, as posted on this page above in the “About the Tribes” section. Scroll up and pick a tribe you want to learn more about! There’s also pictures so you can see what it looks like.

Of course, you can also change your tribe (instructions above) and visit all the different tribe rooms! Have fun chatting, battling, and befriending new people!
Visit the different Tribe pages listed above to learn more about each one! 🙂
