Rockhopper is a friendly pirate who regularly visits the island, usually with gifts, or knowledge. His ship, the Migrator, can be spotted on the Beach during his visits. He's always accompanied by Yarr, the first red puffle ever discovered in Club Penguin Island and Rockhopper's Island.

He keeps a journal of his adventures, and sells rare items brought over from Rockhopper Island and other places. When he comes, he often gives away a free item, and sells other items, such as backgrounds, furniture, clothing items, and other wares.

By meeting him, you can obtain a free background and a stamp. To obtain the background you'll have to click on him, and then box in the bottom left of his Player Card. The stamp should automatically appear in your stamp book when you meet him.

He first appeared on Club Penguin Rewritten during the Beta Test Party.

The Migrator

Main article: The Migrator

His ship, the Migrator, is his main form of transportation to-and-from Club Penguin Island, to Rockhopper Island.

The Migrator is supposedly built from wood as, according to Rockhopper, it was assembled on Club Penguin Island. It is a streamlined ship with two floors, high-rise sails, and multiple portholes. Rockhopper has used the ship in many expeditions for which he has documented in his journal.

As a Mascot

As a mascot, Rockhopper comes to the island now and again and it is known when he's coming when his ship is spotted at the telescope. A week or two later, he will sometimes waddle around the island with Yarr and give a free stamp and a background to obtain by meeting him.


Rockhopper is shown to be a seafaring, adventurous pirate who is extremely brave and courageous. He enjoys cream soda and stinky cheese, and adventures for treasure. He also is shown to be incredibly kind to other penguins.
