This is the Glitch page, where we have all the glitches you will ever need! From handheld items to changing genders, there’s bound to be one you’ll want to try. The glitches are split into categories for your convenience (Costumes, Eyes and Facial Hair, Handheld Items, Useful Glitches, and Miscellaneous)!

We appreciate all of the glitches suggested in the comments, but the glitch must follow one of three conditions for it to be put on the page:

  1. The glitch must be something useful for Poptropica,
  2. The glitch must be something customizable, or
  3. The glitch must be given special permission.

Notice: If any glitch no longer works, please say so in the comments! 🙂 Thanks!

Make sure to visit similar pages, such as Easter Eggs and Cheat Codes.

Special thanks to Sam’s Poptropica Cheat Blog (TIB) and Adventure Time Pop (ATP). Other glitches will be given credit.

First, you need the Back Lot Island Clapboard. Put it on. Next, jump, while keeping the cursor above your Poptropican and don’t let go of the left mouse button. Keep doing it, but use your other hand to press the spacebar while still in midair, and you will jump while in midair! This may take a few tries, but it works! If you keep pushing the spacebar, you’ll eventually reach the sky! Apparently, in Poptropica, the sky has a limit. 😉
~Michael A.K.A. Curious Grape

Flying on SUI’s

First, buy either the Fierce Lion costume or the Baseball Fielder costume. Equip the baseball or mouse from either costume, then go to an SUI island. Use the ability by pressing spacebar just before running off a building and you will fly until the ability is over. To fly upward, jump in a way where you will spin in the air on an SUI island, then press spacebar rapidly after you fall on the ground. It should look like you are somersaulting. Eventually, you will fly up fast, and you will stay up there until you stop pressing spacebar.

Reality T.V. Votes

If you press reload before the game on Reality T.V., or in between the games in Reality T.V., then you will go straight away to the voting and will not have to play the games and challenges.

After you finish the island, Twisted Thicket, keep the amulet on. Restart the island and you get to use the amulet throughout the island!

This only works on non-updated islands. To zoom in, scroll with your mouse and push Ctrl at the same time. It helps you see farther than normal! Also, you can scroll out (for those computers that have a wide screen). You could also push Ctrl and the + sign to zoom in or the Ctrl and – sign to zoom out.



Friend a Clone

You need a sibling or a friend with you. You and the other person log on to the same user (on different computers) and then go to the same island (such as Home Island) and both go to the Common Room at the same time. You can chat, battle, and friend your exact clone! Once you or the other one exits the game, you will no longer have the clone.
~Bendy Flyer

Friend an NPC

On Spy Island, once you have gotten the Invisible Suit, go to the rooftops with the suit on. Get close to the B.A.D agent once he has stopped, without overlapping. Click on him and the Friend, Battle, and Chat bubbles will pop up. Click on a friend and you will friend someone called “Maroon Rider.” It says she has no photos, but she actually has all of your photos.

  1. Hey, the glitch was patched because of all of the non-SUI’s where deleted from Poptropica so is there any other way we can use these glitches?

  2. I know that there’s a username that allows a female character to remain female in the overworld but register as male in the Costume Shop, but my question is as follows:

    Is there a glitch username that allows a male character to remain male in the overworld but register as female in the Costume Shop?

  3. Hi, I’m Mighty Fang, friend me at “mememe7592”, and I have discovered my first glitch! I don’t know whether this works on the computer, though, so please try! I was on my IPad, on the Poptropica app and I traveled to Poptropicon Ep. 2 and found this:
    1) You know the person who you have to beat to get the Omegon card? Well, once you have the “right deck to beat her”, then play the card game against her.
    2) If you win, then when you’re holding the phone in your hand, about to take a picture, log out or turn the IPad or tablet or phone or whatever off.
    3) Then turn it on and log back in and you should have the phone in your hand.


  4. Hey, Silver Wolf. I look like jcwarw49 and I don’t know how. Do you? It made my character a boy. The glitch worked but, then I tried it again and it made me look like him.

  5. In Wild West I’m stuck on my horse and there is no dismount option. Not sure if it is a glitch or something else. If I restart the map then I’m still stuck on the horse. Send help!!!

  6. I went on my old account an everything was how i left it, then the next day I logged on again and my character turned into a girl avatar and I don’t know how to fix it.

  7. Hey I have a problem/glitch on the Monster Carnival, when the guy guesses my weight correctly and I go to the Apothecary shop, the guy just says “Would you be needing anything else today?” and it won’t let me get the heavy material needed.

  8. Hi, I’m having a problem. When ever I walk to a new page, it places me in the centre, and not the side where I’m supposed to enter. Usually it’s not a problem. But for islands like astro-knights, to get the board thingy, you have to enter through the top of the building, but when I try to enter from there, it places me at the entrance from the front door. Another example is the doubloon in Skullduggery Island. To get the doubloon at the very beginning of the island you have to go under the bridge to the next page, still under the bridge. But instead it transports me back to the blimp. I can’t continue these islands without those items. Do you think you could help??? thanks.

  9. Can someone help me i was playing mythology island and i teleported using the mirror but i came out the other side a girl i can’t turn back into a boy PLEASE HELP MEH!

  12. I don’t get why I keep on discovering cool glitches!!! Here is a glitch:

    1) Go to the ad transporter and do the Puss in Boots Quest.
    2) On your Poptropica Browser(the one that is not the ad transporter)and make sure you are on a non SUI island.
    3)Refresh the Poptropica browser.(click retry)
    4) Get the magic beans from the Puss in Boots prize.
    5) Once you have the beans in your hand, press space repeatedly.
    6) Stand in a certain area, and you lose your outlines and part of your shirt(depending where you stand, you lose outlines and shirt a little or lot.
    7) Is this good? Tell me if it is. (optional)

  13. P.S. Friend anyone by clicking the + icon, type a username, and try to customize them, then they’ll be a skeleton!!!

  14. I made a really cool glitch!!!
    Requirements: 8-bit Pixel Pig Power, Skeleton Power
    1)Go to a Non SUI Island
    2)Turn as much poptropicans as you want with the pig power
    3) Use the “I see skeletons” power on the skeleton store card, or else purchase.
    4) Surprise!
    5) Attempt to customize them, and there is something truly weird, weird.
    I hope you put this up and enjoy!!!

  15. I have another glitch! It is for members or you must have the Mystery Train Inspector. Put the magnifying glass on, then rapidly keep on pressing space. There is an eye, though it’s not at your head yet! Cool?

  16. I made a glitch!!! You need a sibling or a friend with you, though. It is not a bad glitch. You and the other person log on to the same user(on different computers) and then be on the same island(I prefer Home Island) and you and the other one go to the common room at the same time. You can chat, battle, and friend your exact clone!!! Once you or the other one exits, you don’t have a clone until you do the steps. If it doesn’t work, then tell me.

    • That’s a pretty cool glitch! Sadly, it doesn’t quite meet the requirements for the Glitch page. Either way, your comment will still be here for all Poptropicans to try themselves!
