Old Random Events - Good

Old Guide!

This guide is old!

Random events have been revamped as of April 2014. We've compiled a new guide.

View the Guide »

On most pages of Neopets, you have a slim chance of receiving a random event! They pop up, randomly of course, and can award you with something, take something away, or just give a nice greeting. A full listing is below, broken down over five pages.

Types of Random Events: Good - Bad - Pointless | Winter Events | Tyrannian Events

If you see a random event with a 'Poof!' image, hover your mouse over the image to see what the image normally is.

Note: In an editorial question, it was confirmed that all pet colour-changing events only target your active Neopet. If you want to protect a rare pet from those types of random events, do not set them as your active!

Good Events - Items
