The Book of Ages

Scrapped Pets

With all the images that TNT got right, there were bound to be a few they got wrong. So wrong, in fact, that they were whisked off the server and believed lost - until now. These pets, for various reasons, were uploaded to the Neopets image server but were never released on the site, or released for a short while before being whisked away for being just too hideous. Some may have later been redrawn and finally released.

Special thanks to the site Neopets Archaeology for contributing many of the images on this page.

Blue

Before the colour Purple was created, many Blue pets were purple in colour. When Purple became an official colour, the "purple-blue" pets became more like the traditional Blue pets we know today.

Checkered

Christmas

Cloud

Darigan

Desert

Disco

Electric

Faerie

Fire

Glass

When the Glass colour was removed from the site, Glass pets became Tyrannian. The current-day equivalent are Ice pets. Although the Glass colour is no longer available, you can still find all of the pet poses.

Ghost

Glowing

Halloween

Halloween Costumes

Early on in Neopia, Halloween pets were more themed around dressing up in costume, rather than turning into monsters.

Invisible

When the colour Invisible was first introduced, the pet clearly wasn't... well, invisible.

Mutant

Pirate

Purple

At an earlier point, Purple Neopets having orange spots was going to be a story element in a scrapped plot involving Dr. Sloth and the Grundos on Kreludor. The pets below without orange spots are what they looked like before they were updated to fit the story.

The Grarrl with the green belly below, a nod to the children's show Barney the Dinosaur, was available for a very short time when the Grarrl was being revamped. It was quickly removed in favor of the orange version.

Rainbow

Red

Before the colour Pink was created, many Red pets were pink in colour. When Pink became an official colour, the "pink-red" pets became more like the traditional Red pets we know today.

Robot

Shadow

Silver

Skunk

Speckled

Split

Spotted

Stone

When the Stone colour was removed from the site, Stone pets became Island. The current-day equivalent are Relic pets. Although the Stone colour is no longer available, you can still find all of the pet poses.

Strawberry

Starry

Striped

Tyrannian

Unicorn

When the Unicorn Paint Brush was removed from the site, it became the Uni Gem and Unicorn pets became Red.

White

Unreleased

Faerie Eyrie
