Mythology Island – Spotlight on Hades

There’s less than a week to go before Poptropica Mythology Island becomes playable for everyone (right now, only paid members can play). To celebrate the upcoming public launch, we’re doing spotlights on some of the characters you’ll meet on Mythology Island.

Hades

Hades, God of the Dead and ruler of the underworld, was one of the most feared gods in all of Greek Mythology. In fact, the Greeks were so afraid of him that they refused to call him by name. Instead, most Greeks just referred to him as Pluto. He is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon and when they conquered the Titans, the three brothers divided the world between them. Hades must have gotten the shortest straw.

Hades in Poptropica

Hades after giving up his crown in Poptropica

In Poptropica, you’ll encounter Hades when you visit his realm to get his help in stopping Zeus from taking over all of Poptropica. Before you can get into Hades’ throne room, you’ll need to finish your quest to find five items. Part of that quest will take you into the underworld realm. One of the tasks will be to get a whisker from Cerberus, who is the guardian of the underworld. Later, Hercules will help you get inside the throne room of Hades, where you will meet him and enlist his help. Hades will give you his crown to help you in your fight against Zeus.

In Greek Mythology, the crown of Hades was very powerful. It was crafted by the Cyclopes, the powerful one-eyed creatures who were born to Gaia and Uranus. Yeah, I said Uranus. Go ahead and snicker. Anyway, the crown (sometimes it’s called a helmet) was used by Perseus to help him defeat the Medusa. You’ll use the crown to help make you powerful enough to face Zeus in the final battle at the top of Mount Olympus.

There’s another important reference to the mythology of Hades in this quest. When you first travel to the underworld, you’ll need to place a pomegranate on Hades’ altar as an offering to get inside. This is a reference to the legend of Persephone, who Hades kidnapped and brought to the underworld to be his wife. She was freed by Zeus, but before she left he gave her a pomegranate which she ate. This bound her to stay in the underworld for part of each year. The legend is that this is the winter-time and her absence from Earth is why nothing grows during the winter.

  31. It’s called a helm, not a helmet.

  32. Also, the reason it is told why winter comes is because that is the half of the year when she is in the underworld. Her mother is Demeter, goddess of the harvest, so when her daughter is gone she is sad and does not let anything grow.

  33. Poptropica Mythology Island is located in the southern corner in Poptropica.Southwest of Spy Island,where 476 and 9617 CT Transit drivers live in Spy City.

  36. I think that river styx is easy.First the rock thing falls on the boat so go next to the rowwer dude.then the flying skull comes so stay where you are and duck.After that have a look for the crocodile in the water .Wait for the right timing and jump.This goes on and on until you reach cerberus.

  37. p.s im not a member………….

  41. Girl Who Really Is To Old To Play This

    Ok- Its Called A HEALM not a helmet, Get you’re facts strait

  42. how do i deafeat zeus!

  43. Search up ShinyPear55 in the avatar studio to see what cool outfit I’m currently wearing. If the outfit isn’t cool, (or at least color-coordinated) I am probably between outfits or doing something for my little bro.

  44. I think Hades looks cool with his crown on. After I asked him something he gave me crown to stop Zeus, his brother.

  45. Hades looks… well, bald.

  46. to easly cross the river styx buy the shrinker or get it from gulivers travel game u dont need to doge a thing hop this helps 🙂

  47. i really really very very want to get his staff

  48. To get past the river styx you have to stand on the side of the boat crouch down it is rare that the stalactite will go to the side and the skull cant catch you then stand up look for the head in the water (crocodile head) then when it pops up you jump don’t worry the stalactite wont hurt you.
