Neopies 2014

The Sixth Annual Neopies - 2014

Each year Neopians choose the best of the best and the worst of the worst from the previous year of everything and anything in Neopia, better know as Neopies. Select categories have been choosen and Ellsworth, the Neopies host, will proved the finalist and you get to choose what you think was either good or bad from the previous year.

All of the Neopies:
Neopies for 2008 | Neopies for 2009 | Neopies for 2012 | Neopies of 2014


The following are all the finalists and the winners are highlighted in yellow.

Day One - Best Site Event

Spooky Food Eating Contest

When a monster crashed the new eating contest, a pair of dashing brothers hunted it across and under Neovia. WAY under. Who knew those catacombs were so deep?

Altador Cup

Tyrannia took the Cup, with Altador placing second and Roo Island coming in third at the eighth annual Altador Cup. This year saw a return of the bracket system for teams.

Daily Dare

Oh, Chadley... *ahem* AAA went to summer camp instead of running Daily Dare this year, leaving Abigail and her new friend Chadley to host the game competition.

Obelisk War

When an earthquake revealed a mysterious ancient obelisk in Tyrannia, six factions went to war over it, each convinced they deserved it most. To the victors go the boons!

Day Two - Best News Day

Lawyerbot Day

After Kari's pesky interruption, Lawyerbot Day had plenty of 1s, 0s, and robotic fanart for the ol' tin can, who provided a spooky new poem for the occasion.

Tyrannian Victory Day

Tyrannian Victory Day was celebrated in style in the revamped Tyrannia, complete with a matching foreground and background. Nothing like a marquee to show it off, too.

Artists Take the Day Off

Well, this year's Artist on Vacation Day did provide a new How To Draw... and uh, some "interesting" items... Artists, please don't leave again! *cries*

Faerie Festival

This year's Faerie Festival was notable for the release of six gorgeous new faerie-themed eye shadows and a distinct lack of evil speckled Xweetoks, to the relief of many.

Day Three - Best Species Specific Wearable

Punk Techo

From its boots to its mohawk, this set is the ultimate in punk fashion, sneering at pink and looking on tidy ruffles with disdain. Want to look tough? Look no further.

Chomby Warrior

Encased in rippling sheets of special steel alloy, any Chomby would be the terror of the battlefield with this full-body set. It takes a Chomby to lift the weight of it, too.

Extravagant Krawk

Oh, the parties this outfit will see... this set is fit for the upper echelons of Neopian society with its ostentatious feathers and frills. Sway-approved.

Dangerous Kyrii

With not one but two deadly blades and a book filled with mysterious writing, this set is perfect for the fiercest Kyrii. That hairstyle looks to die for... hope it's not!

Day Four - Best Premium Collectible Item

Opalescent Wig

Silvery pale with just a sheen of rosy pink, the versatile Opalescent Wig adds a unique touch to virtually any ensemble. Also reputed to be easy to take care of!

Peaceful Water Fountain

With its soothing fountain and fragrant garden, this background is the perfect place to step away from the commotion and take a relaxing break during the day.

Spiky Black Lace Cape

Splendidly gothic, this cape is just the thing to throw over one's shoulders for a delicate and spooky look without the weight of plush velvet like so many capes.

Taelia Handheld Plushie

A more adorable, snuggly version of Taelia is not to be found! Really. Attempts to snuggle the real Snow Faerie may result in serious frostbite or snowblindness.

Day Five - Best New Neopet Colour

Woodland Ruki

Rukis may come from the desert, but this colour is at home in the forest. With delicate leaves at its joints, this Ruki blends in with trees and rocks rather well.

Relic Korbat

Just when you thought it was safe to wander through the graveyard, the relic Korbat appeared, lurking like a common gargoyle. There's nothing common about this Korbat colour.

Camouflage Lenny

With subtle, carefully mottled colour, this Lenny doesn't have that "escapee from a military surplus store" look that camouflage is known for. It looks familiar, somehow...

Mutant Poogle

Like some kind of otherworldly monster from the abyss, the mutant Poogle glares balefully, proving that mutants are more than just Neopets with a little more drool.

Day Six - Best Hair


The taller Monster Hunter brother was happy to pose for the committee, saying, "We don't get much recognition for our dangerous work, and oh, this is about hair? Weird."


When asked what gel he uses, Kell responded, "I tried lots of things. Let me just say, ectoplasm isn't ideal. Neither is most slime. That cinnamon scent is nice, though."


"Don't bother interviewing other contestants," Chadley tells us. "Nothing can compete with the 'do. I'm delighted to share it with any newcomers to Neopia, though!"


The only female in the running, Siyana was amused to learn of her nomination. "All I do is run a brush through my hair at dawn. It's just naturally shiny and golden."

Day Seven - Best Revamps


This year saw a tidying up of the inventory, with new links and information added for the convenience of Neopians everywhere.

Money Tree

The Money Tree is bigger than ever, with more room under its branches for all those... delightful... treasures that kind Neopians have charitably donated to those in need.

Spotlights Page

Gone is the disorganised list of old. Now you can find all the creative competitions neatly categorised and ready to enter. Hmm, that makes a good New Year's resolution...

Tyrannia Map

With its sparkling new maps, countless hours can be idled away watching exotic wildlife and wandering the humble villages of the Tyrannian Jungle and Plateau.

Day Eight - Best Mystery Capsule

Perfectly Pastel Mystery Capsule

Neopians were able to pay homage to spring with some perfectly pastel wearables, thanks to the Perfectly Pastel Mystery Capsule.

Discovery of Wobbleshire Mystery Capsule

Is it real? Maybe in an alternate timeline! Part of the Twisted Histories Capsule Adventure, this item provided an interesting glimpse into a totally bizarre place.

Living Nightmares Mystery Capsule

Ohh... creepy! This Mystery Capsule captured the essence of a spooky Halloween just in time for the big holiday. Disturbing items lurked in its depths.

6th Birthday Mystery Capsule

To celebrate the NC Mall's sixth birthday, this Mystery Capsule offered a chance at festive items to help Neopets party in style.

Day Nine - Best New Avatar

Monster Hunting

Why hunt monsters when you can emote? Why not do both?!? This avatar answers the really important unasked questions of the Spooky Food Eating Contest.

Snow Roller

For those days when life hits you like a giant snowball rolling down Terror Mountain and crushing everything in its path... This avatar provides.

Battleground: Awakened

Two charming young girls, a fun bit of fireworks... so what if they just summoned a horde of undead monsters? We have the Obelisk War to thank for this avatar.


Prove your mettle at the mysterious game of Goparokko and earn this avatar. Is that Yurble trying to hypnotise you? Look closer and find out.

Day Ten - Best Neopoint Wearable

Glowing Spell Runes Foreground

Only the most powerful and well-learned wizards are responsible enough to risk stepping safely into this circle of runes from Daily Dare...


Is anyone impervious to the "Awww" factor with the adorable Moehog-themed wearable plushie? You can practically see its tail wag.

Runes of the Obelisk

As spooky and mysterious as the Oracle herself, the Runes of the Obelisk recall the strange writings inscribed on the monument that kicked off the Obelisk War.

Fyoras Eyeshadow

The Faerie Queen herself was spotted checking out this eye shadow with her signature violet-lidded eyes. "It would make getting ready so much faster!" she said.

Day Eleven - Best NC Accompaniment

Honest Pete

Honestly, he's not sure why the Festival of Neggs is such a big deal. It's not like there's massive profit to be made, not like his little side operation...

Fanatic's Museum

This year saw Neopians traipsing through the Techo Fanatic's Museum after he kindly opened his doors to a select few. He appears to have the biggest AC collection ever!

Chef Julien's Backstage Tasting Kitchen

For anyone feeling adventurous, the chef of the Spooky Food Eating Contest allowed backstage visits to his kitchen, with a few (fortunately inedible) souvenirs.

Perilous Catacombs Runic Doors

There were plenty of doors in the Perilous Catacombs, but perhaps none so rewarding as the Runic Doors. Strange things lurk in the depths under Neovia...

Day Twelve - Best Heard Around The Office

Mr. Insane

"Yes, but the primary universe is trillions of cubic miles of nothing but shrimp sauce."


"Everything I type sounds sarcastic, but I assure you that only like 83% of it actually is."


"You voice everything that I can only express through bitter tears."

DJ Skellington

"My shirt will out-sell your hair!"

Day Thirteen - Best Neopoint Item

Success Pending Hopping Hasee Toy

Hop! Hop! Hop! Mesmerising, isn't it? That agonised feeling of desperately hoping the score sends can now be relived with this cute toy!

Marshmallow Plumpy

If it's modelled after the Plumpy, can it really be sweet? Diehard sweet-tooths assure us that yes, it does belong in the candy shop.

Turkey Monster

It's... aliiiive!!! Neopians everywhere ran from their Turkey Monsters this year. Are they gathering in some secret dark place to take over Neopia? We may never know.

Unconverted Apple

It's uncoverted; it must be worth a fortune, right? Thanks to Bart, anyone can own this apple with classic gradient colouring.

Day Fourteen - Best Advent Animation

Day 1 - Sandcastles

No matter how big your castle is, someone else has already built a bigger one with turrets.

Day 19 - Underwater Christmas Tree

When life hands you lemons, decorate them for the holidays... or something like that.

Day 23 - Fuzzle Present

And the moral of this story is... beware Fuzzles bearing gifts? No, it's "Don't eat the Tofu Space Slug Soup."

Day 22 - Kell and Corbin

Nothing says the holidays like some brotherly kindness... even if it requires a little subterfuge.

Day Fifteen - Best NC Mall Wearable

Unsettling Reflection Foreground

That face in the mirror looks familiar somehow... oh, wait.

Forgotten Faerie Grove Background

Is there anything spookier than a place symbolising the downfall of the faeries?

MiniMME13-S1: Gothic Summer Waistcoat

Expressive of that particular state of mind in which only the bleakest buckles and grimmest cravat will do.

Mint and Aqua Flower Wig

What a glorious cascade of tresses! Everyone was seeing green over this flowery wig.

Day Sixteen - Best New Petpet


Sweet rather than ferocious, the Lellefisk loves blowing bubbles. It appreciates a good brushing, too.

Tamed Mini-Monster

Many of these Tamed Mini-Monsters were discovered in the Perilous Catacombs under Neovia. They often enjoy Spooky Food.


Its delicate wings can transport it quickly between delicious ice crystals, or to its next hide and seek spot.


In honour of Coltzan's beloved pet, the ghostly king presented a Sparky to anyone who visited his shrine one day this year.

Day Seventeen - Best Background

Temple of 1000 Tombs Interior Background

There's probably a lot of insight to be gained from reading all of these scrolls. Good thing someone organised them.

Lawyerbots Number One Fan Background

Oh, look, there's a Lawyerbot plushie! And another one... and another... oh my. It looks like someone's a big fan.

Scenic Tyrannian Background

Tyrannians and their friends rejoiced in seeing their jungle home cleaned up and beautified. Requests for a water slide were denied, sadly.

Secluded Bench Background

It turns out there are still quiet places in Neopia where the Techo Fanatic isn't allowed to go. This shady garden is definitely one of them.

Day Eighteen - Best New Battledome Challenger


Ruthless and so quick that it's said his hands blur when he steals, Kanrik is the taciturn leader of the Thieves Guild. He prefers to let the rabble do most of the work.

Lanie and Lillie

Two adorable young girls with a fondness for the undead in every form, the twins who led the Awakened apparently believed they were organising a birthday party.

The Duchess

A more formidable Lenny is hard to find. The aristocratic leader of the Sway, the Duchess has revealed nothing of her master plan to any but her top lieutenants.

Smug Philosopher

Known as Sandro by his friends, the Smug Philosopher is a scholar of war and has a large collection of books on the subject. He's written a number of them.

Day Nineteen - Best Caption Image

1297 - Showdown at the Obelisk

It wasn't until the fighting began that everyone realised how hard it would be to tell each faction apart.... - By pafc_will

1300 - Fighting in Style

Darigan Chomby: What's your favorite faction?
Yellow Chomby: Three-eighths.
Darigan Chomby: I said FACTION, not FRACTION. - By hufflepuff

1308 - Defenders in Training

Blue Moehog: Say what you will about spandex, but at least it doesn't need to be ironed! - By fur_and_paws

Frankie wanted to see if she really COULD get a Devilpuss by "just adding water." - By anorie
