Choosing your tribe for Poptropica is no small decision. You’ll fly your tribe’s colors on your personality profile and in the Poptropolis Games! Each tribe also comes with an exclusive common room to be shared only with other members of the tribe.

About the Tribes

There are eight tribes in Poptropica. Click on a name or icon to learn more about a tribe and its description, common room, and colors. Support your favorite tribe in the comments!

Flying SquidflyingSquid

This tribe hopes to have more than an inkling of victory in the Poptropolis Games. (You’ll never dismantle us cephalopods!)


Winning a competition as tough as the Poptropolis Games takes more than talent. It takes a burning desire to win.


Usually when you call somebody “yellow,” you’re calling them a scaredy cat, but this tribe takes it as a compliment.


Feeling lost? There’s only one route to the gold medal, and this tribe thinks they know which way to go.

Black FlagsblackFlags

This tribe intends to plant the flag of victory in the heart of Poptropolis – and we suspect they’ll stop at nothing to do it!


The Nightcrawlers might look like pushovers, but they’re used to being used as bait. Watch out so they don’t hook you!


This tribe will rise and fall on the wings of their dreams. Maybe you can help them achieve such great heights!


Proving that good things come in small packages, the Nanobots are programmed for victory. Will you help them execute the gold-medal download?

~thanks to Poptrickia for the flag images!

How to choose (and change) your tribe

You can select your tribe by going to your personal profile on Poptropica. To do this, log in and and click on the Friends icon in the top right corner, which should look like your Poptropican’s face. Look for the box about your Tribe.


TO CHOOSE: It should say “Tribes” if you haven’t selected one. Click on the box, and it will prompt you to choose one of the tribes. Don’t worry, you can change it later (see below).

TO CHANGE: If you already belong in a tribe, it will show your tribe’s emblem in the box. Click on it, then click on “Change Tribe” at the bottom of the pop-up to switch to a different tribe.

Select tribe

Also, when you start on the Poptropolis Games, you’ll be prompted to choose a tribe to represent if you haven’t already selected one. Once you make your decision, you’ll be given a jersey with your tribe’s colors on it.

Tribal Common Rooms

Once you’re part of a tribe, you can enter its exclusive common room, which is only open to the other members of the tribe! It’s bigger and better than the ones you’ll find on Main Street. To get in, click on your tribe’s logo, and click “Join Room.”

It’s a great way to meet and befriend new tribal mates. Each tribe’s room looks different and has some hidden interactive elements, which you can discover in the PHB’s pages about each tribe, as posted on this page above in the “About the Tribes” section. Scroll up and pick a tribe you want to learn more about! There’s also pictures so you can see what it looks like.

    • blame it on the love of rock and roll says:

  41. i am in black flags

  42. transpeter97 says:


  43. Herman Toqem says:

    Lets settle this. Wildfire:Fire
    Flying Squids:Water
    Yellowjackets: Bug
    Pathfinders: Steel
    Black Flags: Dark
    Night Crawlers: Bug/Dark

    • Herman Toqem says:

      Wildfire has a type advantage against The Yellowjackets, Pathfinders, and the Night Crawlers. Sorry., they’re out of the question. The Flying Squids knocked out Wildfire. Since electricity has a type advantage against water and flying types, the Flying Squids and Seraphim are out. Sorry. Now, it’s Black flags (dark)
      vs Nanobots (electric). Who will win? See, it’s much easier if you play pokemon.

      • How do flying squids beat wildfires? The wildfires can dehydrate the flying squids and burn the black flags. Electrisity has no effect on fire but fire can burn the life out of the nanobots.



    • Sorry you just got burned by the wild fires!

      • T.T.P.o.t.T.P.F says:

        Actually, I’m a Black Flag and I can’t say I’ve recently been defeated in any single event by a Wildfire. That’s just me, though, I’m sure you’ve beat us quite a few times on your account.

  45. Sleepy Fang* says:

    Btw How do u get a tribe hat?(Saw some1 with a seraphim hat..)?

  46. wilde fire all day boiiiiii

  47. Nameless UnDEFiNed says:

    Can I use the Tribe Descriptions on my Blog’s Tribe page? I’ll link back here without a problem 🙂

    Slanted Fish: Sure.

  48. Seraphim!!!

  49. Nastaskia says:

    Wildfire is the best!!!!!!!!

  50. Let’s go wildfire lets go *poof* hey why isn’t this thing working!!! “boooom” There we go 😆

  51. Wild fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrre! Yey! Thank you ladys and gentlemen thank you *claps come out of nowhere* night falls “SCREM!!!” I’m out of here!

  52. Mighty Leopard says:

    <==< (that's a squid, by the way)

  53. If Nanobots == the best tribe:
    print(“The Nanobots are the best”)


  55. May I please use this for my blog? I promise to credit you.

  56. the grim jones says:

    Seraphim RULES!! Every other tribe drools(No offense samwow5 and Slanted Fish)

  57. After reading the heated comments in all the tribe pages, this is why, my friends, the Creators SHOULDN’T do tribes in the first place. The next thing that happens, people start bragging about how their tribe is better.

    • Anime freakette says:

      I agree, but still. It’s fine to show your tribe spirit! Just be nice about it. Competition is saved for the poptropolis games!

      • Yeah, but it shouldn’t get out of hand though, to the point where you get in a heated argument/fight with someone. And I’m not talking about everyone acting like that; I mean the competitive ones.

  58. Magic Snowball says:

    GO WILDFIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    (I change tribes all the time)

  59. Everyone knows that Wildfire is THE BEST!!!

  60. Magic Snowball (Add me on poptropica as kkool223) says:

    Guess what? I changed tribes again!!! Now i’m in pathfinders!!!

  61. Does ANYBODY ELSE [ANY BODY AT ALL ] have Wildfire?

I myself am a proud member of the Black Flags, and I fully intend to stay that way, hopefully without getting insulted by the overly-spirited members of my opposing tribes.

    Hello, I am in the Black Flags and I would love for you to friend me on Poptropica. My username is WildGamer20122366. GO BLACK FLAGS!!!! SHOW THEM WHO’S BOSS!!!!!!!

  84. Seraphim rule it
    yeah we are the coolest
    like us or not
    still we have the best shot

    if u want the winners
    not all with the beginners
    you should go with us
    all the others, just go take a bus

    we follow our dream
    and we are the number 1 team
    now it sure would be a pity
    if your still just listenin to the other team’s nitty gritty

    so get off your bum
    get up and come
    stop this charade
    and join the Seraphim today



  85. now i will take requests for different tribes for me to rap about

  86. my besties requests were night crawlers

  87. now time to hear about the ballers
    called the night crawlers
    they are so awesome they make others look smaller

    they might be pushovers and door mats
    but they’re better than those rats,
    the flying squid aristocrats

    with the other teams you’ll want an escape hatch
    the night crawlers are really quite the catch
    look out people you have met your match

  88. wild fire is really cool
    sit down cause they will take you to school

    have fun at your tribe parties
    but dont be tardy
    wild fire and pathfinders are the real smarties

    so bring your tribe and your whole army
    we’re about to make look as weak as barbie
    lookin up at the sky so starry
    lookin down and feelin so sorry

  89. now thats all for today
    but tomorrow dont be late
    or your seal your fate
    be sure to leave comments on this page

  90. I believe in peace with all tribes
