Neopian Trophies

Trophies are little graphical goodies displayed on your user lookup that reflect particular accomplishments on the site. While many trophies available in Neopia require a great amount of skill (or luck), some simply...don't. The best part of trophies is that once you earn one it will stay on your lookup forever—it cannot expire or be taken away. Below is a survey of the different types of trophies you can earn.

High Scores Trophies

High scores trophies are the most common and generally most sought-after trophies on the site. These trophies are earned by sending a score that is among the best among all users over a given time period, earning you a spot on that game's high score table (HST).

Specifically, you must score within the top 17 high scores so far in a given month, and remain in the top 17 until the high score trophy script next runs around the end of the day. Starting in late 2014, the time that trophies are awarded began drifting a few seconds later each day—previous to 2014, it was always at 12:10 AM NST. To find out the current time, we recommend asking around the Site Games Neoboard.

  • Gold: 1st through 3rd
  • Silver: 4th through 8th
  • Bronze: 9th through 17th

The high scores tables are completely cleared on the 1st day of each month around 12:10am NST; this makes the first day of the month the easiest time to get a trophy, especially in luck/chance games and games with a maximum possible score.

Although all high score tables themselves function the same, they differ in how your score can get added to the table.

Standard Game HSTs

The "standard" high scores table trophies require you to outperform other players in an individual score submission of one of the site's games. This is the most common type of trophy on the site. The scores on the high scores tables of these games are from score submissions of a single play of a game.

Cumulative HSTs

Cumulative high score trophies are won by accumulating points over any number of games, not a top score from a single game. These high scores tables work differently because they never truly reset. Although the table is cleared at the start of every month like all others, each user's cumulative score is maintained. All a user has to do to reenter the high score table is complete another game. A user's cumulative score only resets after either 30 or 90 days (depending on the game) without adding to their score.

Non-Game HSTs

Some trophies are earned from a high scores table, but the site feature that awards them is not quite what we think of as a "game," such as Random Events or Dailies.

Player-vs-Player

This set of trophies, also sometimes called "multiplayer" trophies, is earned by winning monthly tournaments where you'll have to face off against of a variety of different players. This will require quite a bit of dedication over the course of a month. There are only three games that participate in these kinds of monthly tournaments: Armada, Geos, and Kacheekers.

Non-Competitive

Non-competitive trophies require you to achieve certain feats in a game, but with no competition with other players. Although not always easy, you can earn these with patience, skill, and a little luck. These games are often HTML/PHP-based (played in the browser).

Retired Games

Technically these fit into one of the above categories, except it is no longer possible to earn these trophies. However, you may still see these on some older users' userlookups; these users earned them before they were discontinued. Most of the time, the trophies are unavailable because the games have been sent to the Game Graveyard. Sometimes, they are replaced by an updated version of the same game with a new game ID number; this is how some players may appear to have duplicate trophies for the same game.

Sptlight/Contest Trophies

There are a number of different contests on Neopets that require either artistic talent, smarts, or good perception. They each have their own trophy, and you can get multiples of each trophy. (This would show up as a x2, x3, etc on your profile.) Unfortunately, several of these spotlights or competitions have been permanently retired, and the trophies are no longer earnable.

Site Event Trophies

These trophies can only be obtained through Neopets plots or events. While plots are one-off events with a strong story component and unique participation methods, events are smaller and usually annual (or otherwise recurring) such as the Charity Corner. Despite this distinction, the trophies from both of these live in the same part of your userlookup called "Site Event Trophies", though some of the very oldest actually appear among game trophies before TNT created this space.

These trophies can only be given out through participation while that plot or event is ongoing; once it is finished, there is no way to earn the trophy. There is just one exception to this: the Altador Plot remains open for completion indefinitely! Our Altador Plot guide details all the steps you need to take to complete the plot and earn this trophy.

Some of these trophies are hyperlinked and can be clicked to open a new page or a pop-up that show's the players specific achievements within that plot/event.

Miscellaneous Trophies

These trophies actually do not quite fit the definition of a "trophy" within the Neopets context, but are close enough to be worth mentioning here.

Site Feature Trophies

These miscellaneous trophies appear in a special row on your lookup.

  • The Kadoatery trophy requires you to feed mewling Kadoaties in the Kadoatery. Your lookup will boast a bronze Kodoatie trophy after successfully feeding one Kadoatie, a silver Kadoatie after feeding ten, and a golden Kadoatie after feeding twenty-five. Although this is the highest trophy, the caption beneath the trophy publicly lists how many Kadoaties you have fed to date, resulting in an unofficial trophy upgrade of sorts. Many Kad feeders strive to feed 75 Kadoaties, sometimes referred to as "going pink" because of the pink avatar that this achievement earns, and some players, known as "overfeeders," continue Kad feeding beyond that.
  • The currently-inactive Battledome-based Defenders of Neopia game provides two trophies. In each series, you are tasked with battling various opponents in a set order. After each successful mission, your trophy is upgraded. There are seventeen possible trophies from Series 1 and five from Series 2, though only your highest trophy from each series gets displayed. The feature has unfortunately been offline since October of 2012, so trophies cannot be earned or advanced.
  • Premium users automatically receive the Lucky Space Faerie Charm. This valuable feature randomly doubles the Neopoints you receive from playing Flash games.
  • All players automatically receive the Lutari Talisman on their profile. You can place different coloured beads with a variety of properties on your talisman.
  • The NC Mall Album is automatically available for all accounts that have ever purchased a Neocash item. Unlike all other trophies, this trophy's visibility on your lookup can be toggled on and off, and its appearance can be changed.

Pet Trophies

Unlike all of the other trophies listed above, which are associated with your account and appear on your userlookup, there is a set of trophies that can be won by an individual pet. These trophies appear on the pet's lookup, and stay with the pet forever, even if it is transferred or abandoned.

Other Pet Trophies

These trophies are so obsolete or obscure that we have separated them from the other trophies above.

Other Pet Trophies

Faerie League
This trophy was awarded to pets that defeated all of the faeries in a very early Battledome event in February 2001. The trophy would display in a row above other trophies, and it is unknown if it still displays on current pet pages. If you know a pet that has this trophy, please let us know!

Heaviest Pet
This trophy is ostensibly awarded to pets with the heaviest weight statistic. However, it is not known if it was ever awarded to any pets, and even if so, if the script that would award them is still functional. If you know any pet that has this trophy, or anything about its history, please let us know! (If you're interested in exploring this, the only way to increase your pet's weight is with a Pumpkin Negg.)

Most Travelled
The requirements for this trophy are unknown. The only known pet to have one of these is a bronze one on Thyassa, a Chia on the defunct staff account of Neopets co-founder Donna. If you know any other pet that has this trophy, or anything about its history, please let us know!

Oldest Pet
This trophy was ostensibly awarded to pets of a certain age. The only two known pets to have one of these is HollyNoel, who has the gold, and Thyassa, a Chia on the defunct staff account of Neopets co-founder Donna. Curiously, Thyassa has both silver and bronze. The history of HollyNoel can be seen seen on ~MowYaGras, where some other old defunct trophies can also be seen in an old screenshot!
