This little browser game, owned by Disney, centered on users' personal penguin avatars, and their little lives. The game was somewhere in between a social network and a life simulation. Players could chat with other people, buy and care for a pet, buy clothes, buy and furnish your igloo, and even change the color of your little penguin avatar. All of this was paid for by little minigames you could play in the little world. Some games were competitions with other penguins, while some were solo games. However, most of the interesting things you could buy, you could get [[AllegedlyFreeGame only if you paid for your account]].

* FanRemake: [[http://clubpenguinrewritten.pw/ Club Penguin Rewritten]] faithfully brings back the game with little changes, amassing over 100,000 players just five days after the original Club Penguin's shutdown. More importantly, [[AuthorsSavingThrow the dreaded membership system is also long gone]].

* FragileSpeedster: The yellow bots from the minigame "System Defender" are the fastest bots in the game, but not very strong and can be taken down rather easily, especially by yellow cannons. From the same game, red cannons also count, as they shoot fast, but don't take a lot of damage.



* JackOfAllStats: The Fire Ninjas from Card Jitsu Snow have balanced stats, unlike the Water and Snow ninjas who excell in one area, but are terrible in other area.

* MightyGlacier: The purple bots from the minigame "System Defender" are slow, but take a lot of damage and recquire a lot of shoots, which is why the purple weapons (which also count for this trope) are the best option when you have to deal with them.

* CheckpointStarvation: The minigame ''Puffle Launch'' has checkpoint cannons that ([[CaptainObvious obviously]]) change your puffle's spawnpoint. Because of how the cannons are spaced out, this is bound to happen, and it's more annoying if you're going for 100PercentCompletion.

** Another minigame example: ''Bean Counters'' has ''two'' levels of this above Hard in [[spoiler: the secret Jellybean mode]]: Expert and Extreme; [[spoiler: as well as having more colors to sort than Hard, all objects are tossed out ''super fast'' in these modes, ''especially'' Extreme!]]

* HarderThanHard: Club Penguin's [[AchievementSystem stamp system]] has stamps in four levels: Easy, Medium, Hard, And Extreme, [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience which are green, yellow, blue, and red, respectively]]. Most of the former three aren't too bad, but Extreme stamps require '''a lot''' of patience and many of them can easily feel like ThatOneAchievement for some players.
** Some Minigames have this as well. ''[[RhythmGame Dance Contest]]'' has standard DifficultyLevels selectable in the difficulty menu, each of which gives each song a specific arrow pattern. [[spoiler: Expert, however, requires that you click on Cadence in the difficulty menu, then confirm your choice.]] In this mode, arrows are faster and the pattern is randomized each time you play, denying the ability to memorize the pattern!
