Red Dragon Island Walkthrough


Step 1. You’ll arive in the main street next to a lady and her dog. First, run to the very right of the screen and enter the garden next to the blue house.

Step 2. You’ll see a ball of light that two kids called Jack and Annie are chasing.They’ll say something like: Quick! Let’s get to the tree house! (Hmmm…right…) Go over
to the tire hanging from the tree to the right and jump on it to make it come off. Now push the tire all the way to the left of the screen and go back to the main street
while pushing the tire with you.

Step 3. The rare occasion occurs. The tire appears on the next screen! Ever noticed how if you tried pushing something (EG: Rubbish bin from Wimpy Wonderland) to another
screen, it doesn’t appear? Moving on, keep pushing the rubbish bin to the very left of the screen and go left, again, pushing the tire with you. Wowee! It appears again!

Step 4. Push the tire all the way over those hills and bumps, until you reach the ladder to the tree house. Put the tire under the ladder, and grab Jack’s glasses. Then jump
on top of the tire to reach the ladder and enter the tree house.

Step 5. Um…why is the tree house so much bigger in the inside than the outside? Anyway, give Jack his glasses and grab the books from the left and right sides of the room.

Then use the one that’s about Japan and your Poptropican will say: “I wish I could go there!” (Well, personally I’d rather go to Venice, but hey!)

Now the tree house will start zooming through the air.

Step 6. You’ll arive in Ancient Japan, and you’ll get this Amulet from Jack and Annie. So, now you have 2 options: Go to jail, or enter Japan.

If you want to go to jail, go to the next step, otherwise skip next step.

Step 7. To get to jail just keep running left and the guys will tell you off for not having a passport and take you to jail. You can talk to this guy there and

when you’re ready to leave, use the amulet to get you back to the treehouse. Now go out of the treehouse again.

Step 8. Run left and enter the place with the bonsai trees out the front. Talk to the lady there for a bit and she’ll give you a Kimono.

Oh, and just like magic there’s a passport in the pocket. Lucky you!

Step 9. Go to the next screen to the left and you’ll see Annie and Jack getting taken of by those guys because they don’t have passports.

Now run across the bridge and go to the next screen. Now you can talk to that guy at the market place a bit, but what you should do is run up to those stairs leading up to that

entrance in the wall and grab the rotten fish. Now enter the entrance.

Step 10. Talk to the lady there for a bit, grab the note to the right and go back down again. Then go to the next left screen and the next left screen after that.

Keep running left and grab the bag of Mortar. Now enter the little hut. Talk to the guy there for a bit and then exit.

Step 11. Go back 2 right screens again to where the dragon thingo was and you’ll find a group of guys, one of them guilty of stealing.

Ask to help and you’ll group them into the right order to find the guilty one. Here’s the order:

When you get it right you’ll recieve a betting slip.

Step 12. Go back to the screen where the bridge was to the right screen and walk onto the bridge. Use the bag of Mortar and you’ll be able to fix the bridge.

This will allow the Sumo wrestlers to cross the bridge. A sumo wrestler will come running across, knocking some bonsai scissors out of a lady’s hand.

Step 13. Now go under the bridge and use your rotten fish to try and catch the Kappa. Eventually you’ll get it. Go over to the right screen and enter the bonsai hut.

Use your bonsai scissors and you’ll be able to trim a tree. Try and get it to look exactly like the picture. Once you’re done exit the hut.

Step 14. Go left 3 times and jump up the stairs to where a sumo match is about to start. Enter the entrance and talk to the guy with the frown next to the Sumo wrestler.

Talk until he asks you to sign autographs for him. Once you’ve done that go over to the other sumo wrestler to the right and eventually you’ll get the chance to fight in place of him.

When fighting just dodge him when he charges at you until he runs off stage.

Step 15. Go back to the place where the mortar and the hut was, talk to the ninja master for a bit and you’ll begin training.

Complete training and then run to the right and talk to him again. He’ll ask you to fix his wall. Do that and then run right and he’ll say to bring Shogun to him. Okey Dokey then!

Step 16. Run back to the place where you got the note from Annie and Jack. Use your claws to climb up the wall. Keep climbing up to the to and the go left.

Use your smoke bomb to make the guy guarding’s eyes sting. Quickly sneak past and jump on the building. Enter the window.

Step 17. I won’t give every last detail here because it’s pretty obvious what you need to do. Use the ninja stars to cut the ropes and kill the lights, use the smoke bombs to make

the guard’s eyes sting to sneak past them, use the claws to climb, the grappling hook to…well…grapple on hooks and the stick to defend and jump high. Collect the keys and pieces of

paper to unlock doors.

Step 18. Once you’ve made it through, you’ll find Shogun and Annie and Jack. Use the Ninja Star to cut the rope on the cage and Annie and Jack will be set free. Shogun will

then use a wand to command the red dragon to destroy you. But instead the red dragon starts firing everyone! Annie will wish it would stop and you’ll be teleported to a place near a mountain.

Step 19. Jump up to the top of the mountain where you’ll find a cloud dragon. Jump on his back. In this mini-game you’ll have to shoot your icecals or water or something at the

red dragon and at the buildings he burns to put fire out. When you’re running low on icecals or water, you’ll have to refill by going through clouds. If all the buildings get

burnt down you’ll lose and will get the option to do it again in easy mode. (Easy mode means you get unlimited icecals without having to refill in clouds)

To win, shoot enough icecals at the red dragon to defeat him.

Step 20. Now that you’ve saved Japan, go back to the tree house and use your frog creek book to get back home. Annie and Jack will give you the island’s medallion and 100 credits.

CONGRATS! You’ve finished the island!

  9. hey dafstr i cant do the bonsai trimming so what should i do

    • To do the Bonsai Trimming, it’s just about patience. If you don’t get it the first few tries, keep going! As you keep doing it more, you get better. Eventually after seeing the same tree over and over again and knowing your mistakes, it’s like you will almost know it off by heart! Remember, your best tool is your mind, brain and eyes. Oh, and practice makes perfect!

      • Actually, I did it on the first try! Try to cut away until the leaves EXACTLY match the picture to the right. Its okay to mess up with some of them, just keep going!

  10. what light ?there is no light!

  11. I cant beat the sumo :/

  12. Nvm i beat him haha

  13. get an older better experienced player to help u

  14. i cant fight the dragon!! its too hard even on easy =(

  15. Can anyone help me fight yokozuna? or wateva his name is??

  16. Neva Mind

  17. Hey dafster i think you made a mistake…
    I think you have to go to jail to get the doors open.(Bonsai place)

  18. How do you defeat the red dragon? I don’t get how to, no matter how many houses I rescue I always get defeated. How is this? I have rescued each house about 5 times in one game now. I have played about 4 or more games. Do I have to somehow blow ice into the red dragon? Or do I save 30 houses?

  19. Where are the sumo wrestlers!! I can’t find them!

  20. HOW TO DODGE HIM??????????????

  21. I can’t defeat the red dragon 😦

  22. When i walk onto the bridge i can’t use the morter it just says “there’s no reson to use it here.” help!

    • talk to the dude who says ” we cant fix this bridge with the tools we have!”

    • Or go under the bridge(: Sorry if i couldn’t help you soon enough but i think the dude who replied first got it right, anyway going under the bridge is what i did. Good luck!

  23. HELP!
    ive done all that stuff just before the picture but i cant get the red dragon to go away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP! HELP!!!!!!!!

  24. help! I cant find the bridge to use the clay stuff… I went to the red bridge but it said no need to use this here or whatever…..

  25. In the beginning, i decided to skip jail and go straight to the bonsai place, but it said ‘looks like this place is closed right now’ so i had no option but to go to jail first, then escape. Then i went back to the bonsai place and it was open, so just a heads-up for newcomers.

  26. Oh, and Poptropica has been MAJORLY ripping us off!!! We only get FIFTY credits per island!!!!!

    • I haven’t played Poptropica for a ages, up until today, when I went on for the first time since “Mystery Train” island had come out! Quite a fair bit of new stuff, I just realized I have over $1000 of Poptropica virtual credit!
