Cerberus is a three-headed canine in Greek Mythology. It is seen guarding The Underworld on Mythology Island.


The Cerberus is an aggressive, three-headed, green canine that has necks related to the Hydra. He has three tails, three longs necks, with red collars for each head. Every head has an earring on its left ear and a left lazy eye. The heads all have different sizes.


Role on Mythology Island

If you go to Apollo's temple on the roof, you'll find a hint: As you look at a glowing olive, Athena says, "Music soothes the savage beast." Inside the temple, go to the right so you can get a reed pipe. Go to Euterpe, the muse with the reed pipe, and do what she says. She'll then give you a memory test. If you pass, she'll give you the musical score and tells you that you can use the music to put Cerberus to sleep. You'll find him at the other side of River Styx. Zeus asks you to get one of his whiskers, which you soon discover that it is impossible, since he bites you if you try. To defeat him, use the pipe and a song to put him to sleep, allowing you to take one of his whiskers.

Role in Poptropica Adventures

In the events of Poptropica Adventures, Cerberus got very ill and Hades was trying to create a cure. Since Hermes had lost his winged hat and is unable to deliver anything, he asked you to deliver the final ingredient to Hades. Once it gets there, you must help him by catching the different liquids as he throws them down to you, then he will jump down and create a medicine to cure Cerberus.
