Proving that good things come in small packages, the Nanobots are programmed for victory. Will you help them execute the gold-medal download?

official tribe colors: pink & white

Common room

~thanks to Poptrickia for the image! click to enlarge.


The award for best interactive element among all the tribe rooms might just go to the Nanobots for their beatmixer machine! On the second floor, you can select the desired volume for the kick, snare, hi hat, and clap sounds, as well as the tempo (speed/BPM).

However, the floor above that is where all the magic happens. Click to turn a square from blue to red (and vice versa). A blue bar will move horizontally across the board of squares, and all the red squares will make a sound corresponding to the row they’re in. Make sure your volume is turned up so you can listen to your jam! You can change the sequence as much as you like to keep mixing music.

Check out this gallery of Nanobots concept art from the PHB’s Daily Pop sneak peek archive, plus take a look at the Nanobots’ beatmixer music-maker in action!

According to a 2012 post on the Creators’ Blog, the Nanobots have the best overall scores in the Poptropolis Games. Go go Nanobots!

    Nanobots room is cool but the PEOPLE of pathfinders are like, way cooler!
    (but Gentle Spinner, you don’t have to freak out on every tribe page that Pathfinders is cool in at least 10 exclamation marks because all of us know–and you guys should know.)

    Well, Pathfinders can’t find their paths if….
    Flying squid has their squids suck them.
    Wildfire burns them to a crisp
    Yellow jackets sting them
    Black Flags shoot some cannons at them
    Night-crawlers worm minions eat them
    Seraphim flies them away to an ice berg with a hungry polar bear
    Nanobots hook them up to a wire so the pathfinders can be their slaves

    What’cha gonna do now??

    Once,in Europe,near Sweden and Norway,people thought that the earth was flat,and did not travel too far,because they were scared of falling off it’s edge.But there were three brave explorers- Fenrir,Jonathan,and Zlatos. They thought that the earth was round,and set out to explore it.Their relatives gave them their best wishes,and hoped they came back alive.

    Fenrir steered the ship southeast.One week later,they saw land in the distance.It was the country of China!Jonathan took the honour of being the first to set foot on it.Suddenly the ground under him collapsed,and he horribly fell to his doom and died in a ravine. His two friends tremendously grieved for what seemed like ages.but they went and saw the Chinese Emperor himself!

    The emperor felt sorry for both of them,so he gave them some exclusive treasure from the marvelous country.The two friends’ spirits lifted up a little,but not completely.They went back to their ship and started to steer it. Zlatos steered it North west,and went to where Seattle would be in a few centuries!Unfortunately,Red Indians lived there,and they didn’t appreciate travelers invading their land.

    They started chasing the duo.Fenrir was too slow,and was killed by them. Zlatos felt even more grieved.How could this have been?He sailed off in a direction no one has found till today,and he landed in Rome!Now,if you may know,Rome is the capital of Italy,and was also a home of Italian food.In one hour,he was taking a tourist trip through the ancient Parthenon,after eating a buffet of pizza (too much anchovies) ,pasta,(too much veggies) and lasagne (too much perfection).

    He had a successful trip through the city and soon went back on his ship.He was ready to go back home and scoff in his favourite manner at his friends and relatives that there was no such thing as the edge of the earth.He had learnt that it was round!He was so high and mighty looking to himself.The only problem was,he didn’t get to tell them that.

    His ship fell off the edge of the earth.

    The End.

    Dear Tribes,

    Please forgive my comrade, Gentle Spinner of the Pathfinders for the rude comments. I know that pathfinders is 1 of the tribes with the least members. but I want to highlight something else.
    The creators only created tribes for fun, but i think we got the wrong idea by making fun of other tribes. In my honest opinion, they should delete the tribes and give poptropolis a similar but diffrent plot. (like poptropicans against invaders or something, just saying. I think that’s a weak plot too.). *salutes poptropicans with no tribe* I’ve been to all the tribes’ common rooms and they’re all as nice.I stand beside all poptropicans fighting for peace and are against tribal war.

    Yours truly,
    Friendly Lion of the pathfinders, flying squid, wildfire, seraphim, yellowjackets, black flags, nightcrawlers and nanobots.

    p.s. Thanks for reading it. I’m honestly a neutralist, so the order of the tribes is just by coincidence.

      A short story about Nanobots:

      It was a windy night in Steamworks Island…even through it was night. The stars sparkled in the dark sky which embraced the Earth. The moon shined on Naomi’s face. ‘How very peculiar.’ She thought. It was very laconic despite the hassle her 3 brothers (Ned, Nico and Noah) had caused. Naomi was happy where she was. Her island was ruled by the very sweet, kind-hearted and giving one and only Queen…Queen Nora. Her Highness Queen Nora cared for her people more than a greedy merchant would for every last jewel of the world. Naomi was very joyed she had a sincere Queen ruling over the entire island. Everyone loved their island. Of course; Queen Nora had connections…a bright light was seen. The light had formed an even brighter figure of a man in a white and blue dress. He had leaves in his hair unlike all of Naomi’s people and friends who had steam-punk outfits. The light then faded and the man was solid once again.
      “Who are you? Why are you wearing a dress? Why do you have leaves in your hair? Why are you–”
      “You ask too many questions. I am Hermes; Messenger of Gods. What I am wearing is NOT a dress. It is a ROBE. In my culture; it is crucial to wear leaves in your hair. Now, then…may I see the Queen?” He asked. How strange…a man with LEAVES in his hair?! A man wearing a DRE–err…ROBE instead of a steam-punk suit?
      “You are talking about me, yes?” A woman with a soft, regal and husky voice asked from behind…HERMES. He turned around and Queen Nora and her big, sincere smile.
      “Good to see you too, Nora!” He said.
      “You don’t usually visit often, Hermes. Is there something important that is in needing of discussion right away?” Queen Nora asked.
      “Not…IMPORTANT as such, more of…a gargantuan competition in the whole Poptropica! Your island has been nominated to participate! Cook up a team, Nora. The competition takes place in Poptropilis Island. I hope to see a team of your island, Nora!” He said; disappearing into thin air.
      “…A team? A competition?” Naomi asked.
      “Yes. Yes, indeed. I shall think of a worthy name. You, my dear, may inform the people. If you don’t mind, that is.” She said.
      “Oh, no, no. Not at all. I can inform people!” Naomi said with exhilaration.
      “Thank you, my child.” The queen said; taking off.

    Beginning of the Wildfire:
    “It was a crystal clear night on Mythology Island. Everyone had gone to sleep… except for a girl named Rebecca. She was reading when she heard a noise. It wasn’t just a tiny noise like the last crackle of a fire or a mouse skittering across the floor. No, it was a loud rumble like thunder. Strangely, Rebecca was the only person to hear it. She decided to investigate. Athena had given her the power to fly so Rebecca silently opened the window and flew out. She heard the noise again and turned around in the direction she heard it. She saw an enormous volcano and flew two inches closer. It felt the same so she kept going until she was directly over the volcano. Then she noticed that she was being sucked, ever so slowly, into the volcano. She peered down and saw Athena herself in the volcano. Without thinking, she rushed in. Only when her feet touched the bottom of the volcano did she realize what she had done. She screamed and flew up until she was out and then she rested on the nearest cloud. She looked up, and she saw Athena on the next cloud. Athena said, ‘Rebecca, you are going to start a tribe. There will be a contest to see which tribe is best. It is called the Poptropilis Games. Call your tribe the Wildfire in honor of that volcano. Please, do it, or Hades will kill us!’ With that, Athena vanished. Rebecca turned to the volcano then she looked at her house. She narrowed her eyes and said, ‘Long live the Wildfire!’ and went to the Poptropilis Games.”
    That is the story of the Wildfire. WILDFIRE FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
