Poptropica is full of brilliant and likeable characters… but there’s also a lot of Poptropicans who are more than a bit of a pain to be around.
#5. THE WARDEN (ESCAPE FROM PELICAN ROCK)
Well, this slightly pretentious warden from EFPR isn’t exactly the most likeable person: he has no respect for any of his prisoners (which maybe isn’t a great surprise, being the warden of a prison), particularly you. But still … he’s a little more cranky than your average prison warden.
#4. ZEUS (MYTHOLOGY ISLAND)
For the king of the gods in Greek mythology, he definitely doesn’t make a great impression throughout the quest – he sends you off to collect some sacred items in return for immortality, and once you obtain them, he laughs in your face and tries to dominate Poptropica. Then in Super Villain, he asks you to fetch some more powerful objects, and once you get them, he laughs at your face and tries to take over Poptropica, again. Bit of a one-track mind, Zeus has.
#3. MYRON VAN BUREN (SURVIVAL)
Over in Survival Island, he spies on you during three of its episodes, where you nearly freeze to death, nearly starve to death and nearly fall off a radio tower multiple times. Then, when you manage to get the radio tower working, he conveniently arrives to rescue you as if he only found you because of the radio. Then he gives you a warm bed, the kind gesture only slightly ruined by giving you a poisoned meal to make you drowsy, locking your bedroom door and the announcing that you get the honor of being the subject of his hunt as if you were some prize animal. Well, at least he fills just about all villain conventions.
#2. KIRK STRAYER (BACK LOT ISLAND)
He’s supposed to be one of the greatest and most famous actor of all time in Poptropica (well, I’ve never heard of him till I set foot in Back Lot Island, but anyway), and when you actually meet him in person … well, he turns out to be a bit of a disappointment.
He throws a temper tantrum when you interrupt his acting and storms away to his caravan, forcing you and the director Carson Willis to chase after him; he says he’ll only come out if you fetch him a Half-Caf Leviathan Latte-Expresso on the double and throws a coffee cup out of the window (well, at least you learnt some useless and pointless coffee information no-one asked for); then you find him arguing with Carson yet again about how he doesn’t want to act as a gorilla. Well, at least he does a exceedingly superb job of acting a spoiled brat.
#1. SAMUEL BRAINS (ZOMBERRY ISLAND)
This guy was the whole reason the zomberry epidemic began, because of his infected blueberries, and he gives out his deepest sympathies and apologies about it by … giving free certificates for his own smoothies?
Moreover, why does he look like he decided what to wear while blindfolded? Maybe that’s one of the
many reasons Sarah didn’t enjoy her birthday party so much. Hard to see why.
And on that note, that concludes this post. Is there anybody else who’s even more irritating and annoying who wasn’t mentioned here?
Stay popping! ^^
