Top 5 Poptropica Villains (Opinion Based)
Hello, everyone! Lucky Joker here giving my opinion with another Topping Tuesday post! This post contains spoilers, read at your own discretion. Of course, solely opinion based, I’ll be listing five of Poptropica’s best villains. I’ll try to provide reasoning to explain my choices. Anyway- Let’s POP right into it, shall we?!
5: Black Widow
Being known as one of Poptropica’s most infamous villains, she had to be on the list. For one, the design is great. Her awesome jumpsuit and wild hair both make a great look for a villain. If you don’t already know, she is most known for her role in Counterfeit Island, being the villain. Initially, you meet her in disguise, only to discover the bad side of this character. She’s an art thief who throws multiple tantrums during the game, and even resorts at attempting to destroy art pieces in hopes of not getting captured. In addition to all of that, she gives your Poptropican player a major beat down.
4: Myron Van Buren
Myron Van Buren is an obsessive hunter, who spies on you throughout the episodes of Survival Island. Once you meet, things get a little suspicious. He attempts to hold your player hostage, but you find a way to escape. Eventually, you’re the quarry! What an evil guy with an awesome catchphrase. Tally Ho!
3: Mademoiselle Moreau
A lesson to be learned here- Looks are deceiving. This young French woman is very clever but in the worst way possible. Her ultimate plan is to destroy the Ferris Wheel at Chicago World’s Fair, to ensure the amazement of the Paris World Fair. She’s the main villain of Mystery Train Island- putting your character through lots of loops in trying to find the thief of Edison’s Motion Capture Device. She frames Tesla and even has him arrested. At one point in the Island, she even tries to have your Poptropican arrested. She manipulates everyone around her to get what she wants- To lead everyone in the wrong direction, so that she isn’t caught in her dirty deeds.
2: Binary Bard
(Formerly/AKA Mordred) Binary Bard was the main antagonist of Astro-Knights Island.
Background Information: He was thrown in jail by the King and Queen for studying in technology and dark science. He escaped and further studied. He (possibly) transformed himself into a cyborg later on.
In the story of Astro-Knights Island, He kidnapped the princess of Arturus, Elyana, and shot five dangerous types of spacecraft down toward the kingdom. He flies out to space and plans to become the king of the universe! In attempts to save the princess and to stop his treacherous plan, your Poptropican goes out after him. He plays multiple tricks on you, putting you through many dilemmas, only making it harder to complete your mission. His amazing costume and name were worth mentioning, as well. 😛 He just has the whole wide world in his hands, doesn’t he?
Not only does he serve as the main villain in one Poptropica Island, but in two(Being Super Villain and Mythology)! It may be because I’m really into Greek Mythology, but that’s beside the point. In Mythology Island, he has you go through a quest to find the five sacred items: Scale, Pearl, Rose, Whisker, and a minotaur’s ring. Once you do, he takes them for himself and plans to become the ruler of all of Poptropica, like being the ruler of the Olympians wasn’t enough right? He also puts you through a tough battle in the end scene.
In Super Villain, he disguises as Dr. Jupiter, which I find clever. Jupiter is the Roman name of Zeus- There’s your fun fact of the day. He has Poptropica’s most infamous villains: Black Widow, Dr. Hare, Binary Bard and Captain Crawfish all under quarantine in hopes of removing their evil totems. Of course, if you’ve played the island, you’d know he was only trying to obtain the totems to strengthen his power and better his chances in trying to take over all of Poptropica. Again, he puts you through a tough battle in the end. Plus, anyone with the possession of four Poptropica villains all at once is definitely deserving of the title “Poptropica’s Baddest Villain”.
