My new computer isn't really what I had in mind, being about 10 years old; if it weren't for needing to run Windows 10 on the poor thing I'm sure it would have an easier time keeping up (never have I seen anything consistently lag in 5 second intervals! O.O). Alas! Beggars can't be choosers!
I'll make edits whenever I feel like popping in for a bit. Most of my contributions for the time being will be on the Minipets page. The layouts of some pages on this wiki feel a bit overly complex for my tastes, but I'll work with what I can do.
On a side note, how active is this wiki anyway? I've only seen one other user contribute. Hmm...
See you on the flipside!

It turns out dropping your laptop on the floor can really cause some issues!
That's why I haven't been working much on Marapedia. I don't want to use my phone because Safari on mobile is...well, frankly, not very user-friendly as far as editing articles goes.
I'll be here much more infrequently than normal until I get a new computer.
I'm just thankful my grandparents live nearby and have a PC with Internet access.
- Ta-ta for now!
We'd like to give all of our players an update on our plans for the next couple of months here at Marapets. First we'd like to make sure all of our players are safe and well and following the current advice of health and government officials regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic.
This is an extremely stressful and emotional time for many of us and we'd like to make sure Marapets doesn't add to this, so we're pausing our random Weather Events for the next couple of months.
We know that many of you are self isolating and spending much more time at home, so we're working hard to release over a year's worth of planned new content, updates, games, features and rewards in April and May to keep you all entertained (and distracted).
Our annual Easter Egg H…
I have ideas for future retoolings of forgotten costumes. Most of these will be pretty creative, so hear me out.
- Cartoon - Get out more cartoon in-jokes in their wacky designs. This can be a 20th Anniversary Special!
- Christmas -
Remove entirely. There's no need for new ideas to replace this.The Christmas Costume has been updated to have its pets be Yuletide commodities.
- Cotton Candy - Have all these pets bounce around and likely crave to eat themselves. The costume has been updated, and Cotton Candy pets feel perky.
- Fire Fairy - The alternative for this revamp should be the Phoenix Costume.
- Goblin - Go all out! Make them have an Oglue-like feel. Even reference LOTR if possible! Update: This was fulfilled in August 2020!
- Mafia - This costume, though…
- Easier ways to get clothing for quests
- Multiplayer (besides Forums)
- More fun uses for quests - Ex. Desert Spy
- Bigger artist team
It's that time of year again! Don't miss the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the end of this week!
A new version of the Easter Account Upgrade has been released, with 7 new Easter themed items. The Simerian Explorer Treasure Map was last released in Account Upgrades in September 2016 and has not been avaliable since. As a special limited time, you will receive 2 or 3 random pieces of this retired map. There is a 1 in 3 chance you will receive 3 pieces instead of 2 pieces. This AU will retire May 6th.
In a world of uncertainty, it's eat or be eaten. It was a time of war, a time of heroes. He was a Chibs. There was only one who could help him fulfill his destiny.
Then THEY came.
Movie coming Winter 20XX. Keep checking this page for updates!
Back to the Countdown
Get the ability that lets you rewind to classic Marapets or any era in time, before computers were even invented!
The Truth is Disgusting
Once you take your pet to Murfin Madness, it will result in Toots - go into battle right after, though, and they will let out a giant gas cloud on the opponent, causing a significant reduction in your opponent’s health and the amount of damage dealt to your pet that turn.

- Once exclusive to the citizens of Jenoa, the mermaid style became more accessible once this costume was revamped.
- Characterized by spots skillfully painted in the likeness of leopards, this style has its fair share of fans.
- The Safari pets that arrived in Marada gave others a chance to participate in the local tradition of Safari Challenges, and winning fun prizes for doing so.
- Fans looking for new ways to show their support for their favorite pets were pleasantly surprised by the release of these plushies.
- Chippy has recently begun asking Maradans for help. In return, he gives Toy Block items you cannot get anywhere else.
- What's more, the prize pools are updated regularly to avoid depreciation.
- The lavish Baspinar Castle now comes to life with …
I'm amazed that Marapets survived the Cowboy Costume scandal. Not because the pets were like pixies, but the basic poses caused a perfect storm of Mara-attackers. All the ways other pet sites get away with doing terrible things were things Marapets didn't have. The old costumes were well-liked by users all over the world, and the damage was horrifying; Marapets uploaded the photos on social media, so everyone saw it. The staff couldn't and didn't deny it, so they couldn't stop reminding people of it.
The unspoken rule of pet revamps is that you must improve the pet poses for each color, pick the right color scheme, keep all body parts proportionate, and absolutely nothing will happen to you.
I'm a bit offended by the colors of the Defective Hump; they are a little too close to the trans pride flag colors. I'm a supporter and I don't think the colors where a good pick for the "Defective" costume. They’re just more saturated on the hump
Really great art, the only thing I'm not liking is that the chunkiness of limbs is becoming a recurring theme with all these revamps, please keep some of them dainty and less chibi.
And the most important thing...
Why is Ian such a Butt? This map [Enchanted Plushie Machine] only got re-released not long ago... There are a few maps that have not been released in years. Ian is being mega greedy this year and it is ruining the game
The list of species and colors abound the pet simulation spectrum is astounding! One of the best features of the site is seeing the different styles and tastes users choose to express via their pets. Some users theme their pets color-wise, while others stay within a single species. Users that are UBER-proud of their pets may even decide to list them in a pet directory. Pet directories focus on a particular theme and list Neopets that showcase that category. However, there is so much more to running one! In this article you will learn the basics to opening your very own directory to display your favorite color, species, or pet-niche!

Disclaimer: This is an advocate for more unique pet colors so this nonsense won't happen again. The fans we're responding to are the ones complaining about the basic pose pets.
The cowboy and sewer pets' poses were cuter before. The updated artwork is nice and it's always great to see new pets that can wear an existing costume, but I will be changing my pet to something else. No big deal, but now I'm seriously hoping the other old pets aren't revamped to a generic pose. I hate most of the pets in their basic poses so it just seems a little lazy/pointless. There's so many old costumes needing revamped and so many costumes that were drawn beautifully but only released with 5-23 pets (cough phantom cough), so why release new ones that aren't e…
We will be adding an archive of EVERY OLD PET IMAGE EVER to this wiki. It will occur after every color on Marapets gets revamped.
Many players have their password come off as something too similar or the same, old password that was composed from the very start. Because of this, they have had their accounts compromised and have lost items/MP/AU/pets because of their easy-to-guess passwords. The Marapets staff have forced ALL players to re-verify their accounts and change their password to something more secure. You should NEVER share your password with anyone or use the same username and password on other sites. If your account was compromised, they will be able to login to your account again with the old password! You should also make sure that your account always has a valid email address. Please read this Google Guide to a Strong Password and update your Marapets p…
Want to see what the following pets' descriptions look like?
Decadal: "Decadals settle near the volcano, catching bugs with its tongue, but come to join the fun every 10 years."
Eyru: "Eyrus are exotic pets that need to be readily groomed by their owners. They are also quite the attention grabbers."
Gobble: "Gobbles have become a form of transportation in recent memory. They are willing to fly anyone - provided that they don't eat them for the holidays."
Justin: "These beavers are close relatives of Quells and are very sociable - especially with the ladies!"
Kaala: "Kaalas are very furry pets that care for their owners despite their sassy attitudes."
Limax: "These slugs inhabit Foxfire Forest, leaving constant trails of slime wherever they go."
A comparison between the different pets in Neopets and Marapets.
Number 1... Pixie Costume.
The Pixie Costume revamp is the epitome of costume disappointment for most Maradans. Toddler, Light Fairy, and Defective experienced this change as well, but Pixie had it the most severe.
This was what maradans thought:
The comments are salty, saying the new Pixie pets are absolute trash, more so than SPAM Fairy, and has gone down in Marapets history as the biggest costume revamp disappointment to date. The comments are just so bad. They are like YouTube comments asking the YouTubers to play a certain game or whatever else. Unlike the Fairy Costume, where these pets are airborne, some the Pixie pets are on two legs, so it just feels awkward and unnecessary because they have wings. I know they were going for the whol…
As many of you have heard, Adobe Flash is coming to an end. Many browsers (such as Chrome, Firefox, etc.) are becoming more aggressive in ending their support for Flash by either disabling or hiding it (while also making it more unsafe and exploitable), in preparation for its end-of-life in December 2020. Traditionally, Flash has been a very buggy security mess since its mass adoption in web browsers, frequently used as an attack vector to gain information from consumers who were running it; on top of it, security updates were slow to come out, leaving many users vulnerable. It's a sad time for early Internet content, yet a very good time for web security. Video-based websites (i.e. Newgrounds, YouTube) are already taking precautions by ce…
NOTICE - this was an April Fool's Day joke and is not a real event.
- Launching in 2024 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Decadal and Cartoon Costume is MaraTV - a TV station devoted exclusively to Marapets

its hard to chat on random chat with out sounding dumb, for me, with all the horriable people who make up things about me, like, you are dumb, everyone hates you, and many other things, the people of rc are bullies, i made a board about what i heard out side my house, and everyone says i am dumb, acting as if i am carzy, so im i dumb for hearing loud noises that sort of sound like bombs out side my house and also my family think this as well. and the noises are like 2k away from my house, and did i tick people off for making a board saying, i think there are new rcers i dont think so, so plases tell me why i have ticked some people on marapets off? cause all i have done is try to be nice to all you people and all you do is be rude to me, a…
What can I say, anyone gets tired if they've worked as much as I have in this fan made site. Marapets is a wonderful game. I'm devoted to help the site grow as big as it deserves to be. But alas, I am only one person. At the moment of this blog post the articles are 101 (to which at least 95 have been written by me) and the other 5 have been editted and perfected by me.
Since 2007 I devoted my time into what used to be a parody, humoristic site about fictional stories all had to do with marapets characters. Madame Simona Wellington was once in my Marasite, the Explorer Runes guide and the attempt to build an informative editorial made by the people. Which lasted a short time due to Marasites being down as often as they are. The copie…
I am planning on changing the boxes colors to include only 3-4 relevant colors, not a rainbow anymore. I just love the way Marapetia turned out and it looks so much better when colors are organized. However please keep in mind that the job takes 3-4 hours to do, and it's all strict coding. No cute GUI stuff, can't use editor for that kinda stuff, and even if I could, the editor it's still messed up with a few bugs that make certain things impossible to do. --Molokaicreeper 01:21, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

- 1 Merging? What is this
all about, I'm confused...
- 1.1 What was Marapedia
- 1.2 Twenty Six Articles: Nice!
- 1.3 Confident... What do you mean: Confident?
- 1.4 Busy Time
- 1.5 So now, why a merge?
- 1.6 74 Articles
- 1.7 Maradan Chronicles or Marapedia?
Don't worry. The merge is just as confusing to us! But I will try to explain about Wikia wikis merging and why this wasn't done earlier. I hope you're ready for a long explanation!
First let's go back to the basics. Marapedia was created by User:RexAndAbby. (He or She) may have been a user who, like me, loves Marapets and wanted to help the world find information about their favorite game. I DO know for sure, that RexAndAbby intended it to be the best Marapets encyclopedia in the internet. However how do you be…
