Even though there is a great amount of peace in Neopia, it isn't really a planet
without enemies. Evil has been afoot throughout everywhere. But only a few Neopians
have noticed the rivalry that grows more serious every day. Here are some of
the most well known Neopian figures that have a rivalry between each other and
a brief description.
Fyora and Jhudora
These two powerful Faeries have been enemies for quite a time. Even though it
was a long time ago since childhood that this rivalry began, it was till recent
news that Fyora the Faerie Queen and Jhudora the Dark Faerie hated each other
greatly. Fyora, ruler of all the Faeries, had been twice as keen on spotting
anything that contained evil going on Faerieland or the rest of the planet.
However, Jhudora somehow has no fear of her enemy, even though she knows Fyora
had the power to banish her from Faerieland years ago. Why hasn't she? Simple
explanation: normal Dark Faeries have been doing some witchcraft (though not
as severe) throughout the world, and with Fyora able to sense any type of evil,
millions of tiny pests doing silly spells made it pretty hard for the Faerie
Queen to concentrate on watching Jhudora.
Lupes and Chias
Ah, one of the best well-known pets. These are about some of the only pets whose
rivalry has struck extreme history to Neopia. The Lupe and Chia Revolution (as
I call it) had been going on since ancient ancestors of Lupes and Chias walked
on Neopia. Chias, who were picked on, pounded, and even eaten by Lupes, finally
took a stand to their rivals. Many Lupes claim and have proven they do not eat
Chias except for Chocolate Chias. But even though many Lupes do not like the
taste of Chias, there is a larger amount of Lupes who prefer eating them. Some
of the most famous pets who took a stand to the everlasting war are Griffin
L. Kingsley, the legendary Kauboy who dedicated his life to stop Chia-eating,
and Alexander Timothy Chia, world-famous Lupologist, who dedicated his life
to doing Lupology (Lupe research) and trying to find out why Lupes really hate
Techo Master and Captain Threelegs
The Techo Master of the Training School and Captain Threelegs of the Swashbuckling
Academy are the main rivals of stats training. Loads of people and pets say
the Swashbuckling Academy, located in Krawk Island, has a greater advantage
over the Training School in many things, while the Training School has some
greater advantages over the other. The main points of the Training School which
maintain great points are the time needed to make your NeoPets stronger, faster
(whatever!), while the Swashbuckling takes a while to train others. Another
point is that the Training School has barely any limit to the level of a pet
in order to train. As for Swashbuckling Academy, it has great points as well.
The Dubloons required to pay for your pet cost cheaper than Codestones. It is
also a preferable place for the younger and weaker pets.
Space Faerie and Dr. Sloth
Enemies from the very first day VirtuPets Space Station was discovered, these
two have an intense rivalry more serious than even Fyora and the Faerie Queen.
The Space Faerie came when Sloth made his first ever attempt to conquer Neopia.
Her main goal was to stop Neopia's warfare and put an end to Sloth's reigns.
But that wasn't the only thing she succeeded in. She also freed the Grundos
from Sloth's cruel orders. Even though Sloth was defeated for the first time,
he left behind loads of Transmogrification Potions and still roams through every
world, zapping others' items into Piles of Sludge one by one. After the Space
Faerie defeated Sloth and freed VirtuPets, she was never seen again. Well, it's
all in a day's work... right? It's different for Sloth. Frank Sloth has evil
schemes that have been attempted already, like the Lost Desert conquest...
Shop Wizard and Auction Genie
These are some of the only pets, which have magical powers and use them to do
some shopping/auctioning. Unlike some rivals, these ones most likely have a
friendly rivalry, not attempting to put an end to each other in a terrible way.
However, it's pretty hard to find who is more successful, as I can't keep count
of how many Neopians who use their service. Business has always been going on
between the two. The Shop Wizard lives in the Marketplace, awaiting anyone who
is in need of an item of good cost. And the Auction Genie, he lives in the Auction
House, awaiting those who want to bid their way to an item. Each have an advantage
over each other in different ways. One, for the Shop Wizard, is that he is the
one who most likely leads Neopians to quick items and a quick price in quick
time. One, for the Auction Genie, is that prices that are 100,000 NP or more
can be found here instead of the shops, which items costing over 100,000 NP
cannot be bought from them.
Gelerts and Aishas
Okay, this is the most minor rivalry ever to be pointed out (thanks to aznaquaman626).
Like a dog and cat, Gelerts and Aishas might have an enemy-like thing going
on. Though the majority of Gelerts and Aishas live in peace, there is a small
population of those who prefer chasing and biting each other. But this sort
of rivalry isn't as serious as any of the others.
Punchbag Bob and Punchbag Sid
The identical twin punching bags are very confusing if you plan on imploring
anyone else about this. Bob is the harmless one, and Sid is the one who tricks
Battledomers by impersonating his brother and attacking them with advanced weapons,
usually defeating them. Actually, this isn't much of a problem to Bob. In fact,
maybe Sid was taking a stand for Bob and fought back for a change. Or, on the
other hand, Sid is just making Bob less popular with the Battledomers from then
on. Who knows? How would you feel if you saw two Punchbag Bobs? Both stuffed
with straw, there is no telling of how you'll ever figure out who is who.
Edna and Esophagor
These are two of the Neopians who grant quests to others, both being successful
in business. Edna, the witch, is someone who asks for various items, and the
Esophagor asks for only food... expensive food... VERY expensive food. Edna
and the Esophagor both live in the Haunted Woods, waiting for anyone daring
enough to spend their NP and getting the required items. The cackling witch
has one advantage: she usually rewards you with the kind of food the Esophagor
usually asks for. The Esophagor, the huge bumbling monster of the Haunted Woods,
can reward you with an item and some NP, but the most important thing it can
do for you is telling you parts of the answers to the Brain Tree quests.
I hope you enjoyed this article, and there are many more rivals in Neopia...
so much that I can't name 'em all!
