Poptrop-trivia: the Minotaur of Mythology Island

Poptrop-trivia is another fun new feature here on Poptropica Secrets.  Every week, we’ll be giving you some quirky facts or stories inspired by the amazing islands of Poptropica.  This week’s Poptrop-trivia spotlights a monster from Mythology Island!

Did you know…in Greek mythology the minotaur’s name was Asterion?  Every year King Minos captured prisoners from the surrounding islands and let them loose in the maze known as the Labyrinth where the half-man, half-bull Asterion would gobble them up.  Possibly with a side of Fries.  The hero Theseus pretended to be one of these sacrifices so he could get into the maze to kill the beast.  As you know from Poptropica, the best way to get through a maze is with a ball of string trailing behind.  The king’s daughter, Ariadne, gave Theseus his string so he could retrace his steps after he killed the minotaur.  And every one lived happily ever after.  Well…except for Asterion.  But that’s what he gets for being an evil, carnivorous man-bull.

Mythology Island Minotaur

I wonder if Theseus put his head above his fireplace?

    Kelly has mocha skin like me, dark brown hair, brown eyes, and doesn’t laugh easily. She’s usually doesn’t laugh.

  15. Hey, guys, how ya been? 😀 I see this blog is still up. I remember how it was in 2008. It’s changed so much! Like, four years now! 😀

  16. I don’t know if anyone here remembers it, but remember when we camped out all night, waiting for Cryptids Island? And then, it didn’t come out till like 3 in the afternoon? Haha!

  17. CS: Wait a second… did you say Kelly? I know this Asian girl called Kelly! Could it be the same person?

    Oh, the days when me and ayman used to fight.

    “Keep up the good work, someday you’ll be famous.”

    “Good luck, Cheerful Singer.”

    “Can you please not talk about Shirlex?”

    Those were the days.

  127. Cheerful Singer

    I’m alone, aren’t I?

    I shall moan and mumble about Dubstep.

    No one knows what I’m going through.

    Did I tell you Keyshia is in the Hospital?

    She stepped on a nail and it’s deep down in.

    She has to get it removed.

    I feel bad for Keysh.

    So, I made her bed, straightened her posters, brought her a new CD, sweeped our floor and cleaned her side of the room.

    My side of the room has a dresser with a mirror, my bed is black (the sheets are red and covers are black) and I have “Ill” above my bed (Skrillex symbol).

    Me talking about Skrillex reminds me of Ayman Arif.

    Look him up online then, look up Cheerful Singer.

    Then, look up Scary Sky.

    Then, White Sword.

    And continue.

    And look up Jade.

    Skrillex is a Dubstep, Electro, Electro House and Glitch artist. He won 3 Grammy’s at the 54th Annual Grammy’s (live at the website).
