Rockhopper (commonly abbreviated as RH, or referred to by his title, Captain Rockhopper) is a friendly pirate who docks at irregular intervals on Vintage Penguin Island, usually with gifts or knowledge. He is one of the mascots of Vintage Penguin.

He keeps a journal of his adventures, and sells rare items brought over from Rockhopper Island and other places. When he comes to Vintage Penguin Island, he gives away a free item and sells other items to penguins through a catalog: Rockhopper's Rare Items; which often includes pirate themed items such as pirate hats, telescopes, backgrounds, furniture, and other cosmetics.


Rockhopper is shown to be a seafaring, adventurous pirate who is extremely brave and courageous, doing things such as fighting off a gigantic squid with only the help of Yarr and his Snow Cannon 3000. Rockhopper has a thirst for adventure, and he encourages anyone he meets to try something new. He is endearing, fierce, and adventurous - much like a Red Puffle.
