Poptropicans are a virtual equivalent of humans that inhabit Planet Poptropica. Your avatar is a Poptropican.


Evidence that Poptropicans lack thumbs.

Poptropicans are small, human-like people who can run fast, jump high, and swim. Their heads float slightly above their bodies, similarly to a bobblehead. Virus Hunter Island reveals that Poptropicans do have necks.

Most Poptropicans do not wear shoes, although they can if they so choose, as shown on Wimpy Boardwalk Island and the Running Sneakers store item.

Poptropica Worlds changes the design of Poptropicans to look more like normal humans, giving them visible necks and more realistic proportions. These Poptropicans wear shoes at all times.

In the comic Zomberry: Day Zero, explaining why the Zomberry outbreak began, Poptropicans are depicted with normally-sized arms, hands, and legs.

Many toys, wallpapers, and other evidence seen on islands prove that Poptropicans, when not shown with simple circular hands, have four fingers. This is supported by the fact that Poptropicans have fingerprints (Spy Island, Mystery Train Island), and the fact that Joe Stockman has visible fingers on Virus Hunter Island. However, Back Lot Island and a Pop Quiz, it is mentioned that Poptropicans do not have thumbs. It may be possible that while Poptropicans have fingers, they lack opposable thumbs. Though an inconsistency with this is the coal handprint of Mystery Train Island has thumbs.
