Army in Focus (#1): Rebel Penguin Federation

TUXEDO, Rebel Penguin Federation Capital – Welcome to Army in Focus! With Army in Focus, we zoom in on their history and their rise to success. Today, we look at the Rebel Penguin Federation

Rise of the Rebel Penguin Federation (2007 – 2008)

In 2007, the Army of Club Penguin and Underground Mafias Army were fighting what we know now know as World War III. It all started because the Army of Club Penguin doesn’t support the idea of hacking for rare items and coins whereas the Underground Mafias Army was known for their use of hacking. A penguin named Commando717 was a high ranking General in the Underground Mafias Army. One day, he had a change of heart and realized that hacking was wrong. This change of heart launched a rebellion against the Pink Mafias (creator of the Underground Mafias Army) and many of the Underground Mafias Army’s soldiers joined him. On May 8th, 2007, the “Rebel Penguin Federation” was born.

The Rebel Penguin Federation successfully occupied the server Tuxedo in the coming days. However, the newly founded army was young and unstable, with several members beginning turning on Commando. Another rebel group quickly split from the Rebel Penguin Federation, known as the Tuxedo Rebel Army (TRA), led by Bobo405. This new army pushed the Rebel Penguin Federation out of Tuxedo. The Rebel Penguin Federation then invaded the United Mafias Army-controlled servers of Parka and Tundra. The Rebel Penguin Federation was briefly hunted by the Tuxedo Rebel Army, who eventually returned to Tuxedo and eventually collapsed. The Rebel Penguin Federation then spent several days growing in number by recruiting civilian penguins. Eventually, the Rebel Penguin Federation was deemed large enough by Commando that an attempted invasion the server Mammoth was ordered. Although they were unsuccessful, this event made the Rebel Penguin Federation known to the Army of Club Penguin for the first time. However, it also caused the Rebel Penguin Federation to be viewed as a threat by the Underground Mafias Army. Commando soon got in contact with Oagalthorp, the leader of the Amy of Club Penguin. After becoming friends, the Rebel Penguin Federation entered World War III as an ally of the Army of Club Penguin and the Club Penguin Air Force.

On May 26th, 2007, Commando led the Battle of Breeze, which ended in a decisive victory for the Allies, leaving the Underground Mafias Army demoralized and the server Breeze under allied control. Furious and having lost the will to win the war, the Underground Mafias Army leader, Pink Mafias, resigned and quit Club Penguin. The top Underground Mafias Army generals, Angel G8r and Mpenguin123, were left scrambling to save the Underground Mafias Army from complete collapse. Although they managed to keep the army relatively stable, the Underground Mafia Army’s numbers diminished and it was heavily weakened. On June 13th, 2007, the Army of Club Penguin conquered the server Mammoth from the Underground Mafias Army, with the help of Rebel Penguin Federation soldiers.

On June 25th, 2007, the Allies attacked the Underground Mafias Army on the Canadian server, Wool Socks. This resulted in a devastating defeat for the Underground Mafias Army. Mpenguin123 contacted the Army of Club Penguin leader, Oagalthorp, and the two organized a peace treaty. The war was over. Following the war, the Rebel Penguin Federation’s numbers grew dramatically. Many former Underground Mafias Army soldiers joined the Rebel Penguin Federation, which grew into one of the largest armies in Club Penguin.

The Dark Time (2008 – 2012)

Starting in 2008, the Rebel Penguin Federation entered a “Dark Age”, which lasted several years. On April 2nd, 2008, Oaglthorp resigned as leader of the Army of Club Penguin. This left Commando saddened and disheartened as they had grown to be good friends. After a few weeks of silence, Commando decided to follow in Oaglthorp’s footsteps and resigned as leader of the Rebel Penguin Federation on April 18th, 2007. Commando left with the following message.

Yes, I haven’t been on in a long time. It’s because of various reasons. Plus, I’m not into CP anymore. Yes… I know what your thinking. I’m a jerk now like all the other leaders leaving with not much of a goodbye. In fact, I think the same way, but see, CP isn’t a place for me anymore. It’s time to retire, I can’t keep this up… From this day forth, 4/18/08, will be known as the day Commando717 retired…

– Commando717, Rebel Penguin Federation Creator

After his retirement, the Rebel Penguin Federation was left under Kg007’s rule. Under Kg007’s rule, the Rebel Penguin Federation weakened, and when Kg007 left the Rebel Penguin Federation, it caused many soldiers to leave. Two weeks later, Ziehen, leader of the Air Force branch of the Rebel Penguin Federation, became the new leader. Ziehen’s first act as the Rebel Penguin Federation leader was to initiate a month-long recruitment drive. The Rebel Penguin Federation had been dwindling since Commando’s retirement, and Ziehen wished to bring the army back to its former glory. On August 14th, 2008, Ziehen created a new branch of the Rebel Penguin Federation, Security and Espionage. Later that month, Ziehen went on a vacation, appointing Dragonninja0 as temporary-leader until his return. Upon returning, Ziehen was unhappy with Dragonninja’s drastic changes to the ranks of the Rebel Penguin Federation and decided to demote him. This decision was met with a lot of backlash and hate, so the next day Ziehen published a blog posted on the Rebel Penguin Federation website called “You shall all shut up!” where he criticized and insulted the Rebel Penguin Federation. On August 20th, 2008, Ziehen announced he would be resigning as Rebel Penguin Federation Leader.

Two days later, on August 22nd, Ziehen admitted that he had overreacted and was re-instated as the Rebel Penguin Federation leader. In his resignation, Ziehen set up the government system, which included elections for the role of Governor of a server and the setting up of the U.S.R.P.F Congress. On September 6th, 2008, the Rebel Penguin Federation and the Ice Warriors clashed on the server Sub Zero. After a two-hour battle, Ziehen came to a peaceful agreement with the Ice Warriors leader, Iceyfeet1234. An alliance was formed between the two armies, and plans were made for an upcoming war against the Army of Club Penguin. That’s when things in the Rebel Penguin Federation started getting back on track.

Rebirth of RPF (2013 – 2014)

In May 2013 the Rebel Penguin Federation’s first, second in Command: Elmikey, rejoined the Rebel Penguin Federation. He was known as the best army recruiter in 2007. Elmikey retired from the Rebel Penguin Federation in late 2007, disappearing completely in 2008. Although he visited Rebel Penguin Federation a few times throughout the years, he never stayed. The decision of Elmikey’s return to the Rebel Penguin Federation caused a new rise to the Rebel Penguin Federation. The army began to see sizes no one had ever seen in years. The Rebel Penguin Federation went from maxing sizes of 5-10 to reaching sizes of 70-100+ regularly. The Rebel Penguin Federation stood as the number one army throughout Elmikey’s leadership. With Elmikey’s back on board, the Rebel Penguin Federation always stayed in the top three. Elmikey became the Club Penguin Army Legend & Person of the Year within only six months of leading the Rebel Penguin Federation. During the Rebel Penguin Federation Victory Era, his recruiting brought in a new generation of members for all armies. It is said that he led Club Penguin Armies out of the Dark Ages, possibly even being the reason Club Penguin Armies are still alive today. During his leadership in the Rebel Penguin Federation, the army defeated all its enemies with some armies never recovering.

Then, in February 2014, Elmikey left the Rebel Penguin Federation because the army became corrupt, with his own people tricked into turning against him. After his departure, the Rebel Penguin Federation only saw a short burst of success with Elmikey’s haters joining for a short period of time. The Rebel Penguin Federation soon fell again. However, things started to turn around when Silverburg built an AUSIA division that maxed 40-50 on weekend events and when new leaders, such as Tanner, joined the army. Soon, the Rebel Penguin Federation rose once again and reached number one on Club Penguin Army Central numerous times. However, when Silverburg and other leaders retired, the Rebel Penguin Federation fell once again. They saw short bursts into the top ten, but weren’t the army they once were. The army rose back up when Elmikey joined once more. The army maxed sizes of 30-40+ troops per battle during that time. Elmikey took the side of Waterkid side in leading Light Troops. Many felt this would not be reverted, as loyalist and friends of Elmikey now served the Light Troops.

Then, in late January of 2016, the Rebel Penguin Federation was suddenly hit by a defacement, as well as two leaders, xxToySoldierxx and Drake, leaving the army taking along half of the Rebel Penguin Federation’s original force. Elmikey was able to banish most of the traitors, but it still left the Rebel Penguin Federation severely crippled for a week. The Rebel Penguin Federation was forced to give up a war. However, this decision turn out to be beneficial to the Rebel Penguin Federation. Recruitment flourished and the Rebel Penguin Federation managed to reach the final four in the March Madness of 2016 before being eliminated. The elimination, however, gave the Rebel Penguin Federation a chance to recover. Not only was the Rebel Penguin Federation able to recover, but they were also able to secure the following tournament, the Legends Cup, against the Water Vikings.

After securing victory in the tournament, the Rebel Penguin Federation continued to rise, but with September rolling around, many people began to return to school. Despite this, the Rebel Penguin Federation managed to maintain a steady streak, averaging 35+ troops per event, even as high as 50 in some cases. The Rebel Penguin Federation began 2017 strong, but not for long. After the Rebel Penguin Federation had made several updates on their website, their events began to get bot raided, meaning that the Purple Republic had risen with plans to destroy the Rebellion once and for all. The Rebel Penguin Federation refused to go down without a fight. Even with the bots attempting to destroy the Rebel Penguin Federation’s size and pride, loyalty and friendship would ultimately prevail.

With the closure of Club Penguin, the Rebel Penguin Federation no longer uses the website and now has its events on Club Penguin Rewritten, where it remains the largest army, among the few that survived the death of Club Penguin.



Club Penguin Private Server Armies Era (2017 – 2018) 

With the closing of the original Club Penguin, the Rebel Penguin Federation moved to the popular CPPS, Club Penguin Rewritten. Originally, its main enemies were the Tuba Gang, which they were currently fighting. However, since the Tubas have evolved from a Gang/Clan to an Army, the war seemed to have settled down, with minor armies popping up and disappearing from time to time, such as the Shadow Troops and the Ducks. The Underground Miners Army also survived, but only as a minority. The Rebel Penguin Federation soon allied with the Romans, but later betrayed them. Some would say the EPF and PSA (Elite Penguin Force and Penguin Secret Agency) are also allies, and on their website, it is sited that EPF members are to be assisted in battle.

Tuba War (2017)

In 2017, the Rebel Penguin Federation engaged in a seemingly never-ending war with the famous Tuba Army, with the sole aim of crushing the Tubas and removing them from Club Penguin Rewritten. Many Tubas claim that they were protesting against the Rebel Penguin Federation, who oppress the island and only target the Tubas as they were the only group to speak out against them. The Rebel Penguin Federation combated the Tubas through the use of tactics such as repeated chants such as “DROP YOUR TUBAS” and their motto “FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT”, along with traditional Club Penguin Armies tactics. Normally in sightings of ten or more, the Rebel Penguin Federation called in reinforcements when a Tuba army was sighted and also organized occasional “Tuba-hunts.”

Fall of Elmikey (2017)

On December 7th, 2017, members of the leadership council met to discuss the future of Elmikey in the Rebel Penguin Federation. It was decided that Elmikey should be kicked out of the army, but when confronted, he refused. In response, the Rebel Penguin Federation leadership forcibly removed Elmikey. They accused him of various crimes during his reign, including abuse of power, inactivity, inappropriate behavior and having a dictator-like attitude to his position. The news of Elmikey’s removal sent shock-waves throughout the entire army; some were overjoyed, while others were furious. Most of the Rebel Penguin Federation was happy with the decision to remove Elmikey as they had experienced these accusations first hand. In response, a rebel faction split from the Rebel Penguin Federation, mirroring how the Rebel Penguin Federation had split from the Underground Mafias Army a decade earlier. The members of the Rebel Penguin Federation that remained loyal to Elmikey, joined Elmikey’s new army, the Rebel Penguin Marines. Their original goal was to overthrow the current Rebel Penguin Federation leadership and re-instate Elmikey as the sole leader of the Rebel Penguin Federation.

In the following weeks, the momentum that built up from Elmikey’s removal began to wane. As a result, Rebel Penguin Marines’ events became less and less attended as members left. In response, Elmikey changed his goal. Instead of trying to regain his leadership position in the Rebel Penguin Federation, he was now intent on destroying them, with the Rebel Penguin Marines taking its place as the most successful Club Penguin Army.

Instead of using traditional Club Penguin Army methods, Elmikey managed to take down the official Rebel Penguin Federation website for several days. As the Rebel Penguin Federation leader ship worked to make their website more secure and prevent future attacks, their website redirected users to an older Rebel Penguin Federation WordPress website. This did not have as large of an effect on the Rebel Penguin Federation as Elmikey had hoped, as the army was kept organized by its Discord server.

Allegedly, Elmikey also worked with a group of people DDoSing in Club Penguin Rewritten. After the founder of Club Penguin Rewritten, Codey, was made aware of this, Elmikey was IP banned from the website. Codey also stated that if any of the Rebel Penguin Marines were seen on Club Penguin Rewritten, they would be banned as well. The Rebel Penguin Marines has since moved to Penguin Oasis, another CPPS. This weakened the Rebel Penguin Marines due to the significantly smaller number of players on Penguin Oasis than on Club Penguin Rewritten.

On January 12th, 2018, the Rebel Penguin Federation website, now back online, released an article giving substantial of evidence on the DDoS attacks. The article details evidence that Elmikey, two Rebel Penguin Marines soldiers, one of which being Security, and DDoSer known as NullType plotted to take down the Rebel Penguin Federation website. Further insight was also shed on Elmikey’s ban from Club Penguin Rewritten. Apparently, the attacks occurred because the CPR owner Codey was helping the Rebel Penguin Federation sort out their website. In the end, Codey found out that Elmikey was “responsible” through Security, who had become fed up with Elmikey, sending Codey a series of Discord messages regarding the situation.

Moving to Club Penguin Online & World War VII (2018)

After drama on Club Penguin Rewritten between staff, the Rebel Penguin Federation moved to the CPPS, Club Penguin Online, and began its doing events there. The max of the army began to fall.

On July 7th, 2018, the Rebel Penguin Federation declared war on the Templars due to their use of multi-logging. Elmikey, formerly of the Rebel Penguin Marines, was now one of the Templars’ leaders, leading some to interpret this as a continuation of the war between Elmikey and the Rebel Penguin Federation. This was later expanded on with Operation Dynamis.

Operation Dynamis was a covert investigation carried out by the Rebel Penguin Federation into the Templars’ Discord server concerning the claims of multi-logging. This was carried out using Rebel Penguin Federation’s second in command, Plane. Plane used staged messages between him and other Rebel Penguin Federation commanders in this operation. The tactic was successful, and the Templars welcomed Plane. In fact, he was promoted directly into a leadership position. From there, things have begun to escalate between the two armies with two battles, one of which being unscheduled. World War VII ended catastrophically for the Rebel Penguin Federation with them losing the war.

Operation Exodus (August – October 2018)

On August 15th, 2018, Left made an important announcement about Operation Exodus; the plan to move away from the CPPS platform. The former Club Penguin army would undergo re-branding which included removing the word ‘penguin’ from ‘Rebel Penguin Federation’ to create the ‘Rebel Federation’. The Rebel Federation had now become a multi-gaming community that held events on a variety of different games.



The Rebel Penguin Federation Returns (2018 – Now)

October 14th, 2018, the Rebel Federation returned to Club Penguin Rewritten and their Club Penguin Army roots. Twitchy543 again took control after a server defacement, taking the place of Plane and Night. However, as they still intended to host events on other games, they remained the Rebel Federation and did not return to their former name until June of 2019. As the Rebel Federation grew, they set up ‘divisions’ for games with many users and ‘clans’ for those with fewer users. The main two divisions were the Club Penguin and Minecraft divisions. With Twitchy543 acting as the administrator over the entire Rebel Federation, he assigned each division its own leaders, therefore instating Queenieliz, Cosmo and Danielle as the Rebel Federation Club Penguin Division leaders on January 4th, 2019.

March 6th, 2019, the divisions had grown enough to expand out of the Rebel Federation (hub) server and operate on individual servers. Prior to the move, Danielle had retired, but recently rejoined the army, and Silverburg rejoined the leadership team. Silver and Cosmo would go on to retire at the end of May 2019, leaving Queenieliz as the single Rebel Federation Commander.

The Rebel Penguin Federation Returns to Club Penguin Armies (2019 – Now)

On June 21st, 2019, the Rebel Federation began a new era as they rejoined the Club Penguin Army community and reinstated their former name, the Rebel Penguin Federation. Though having returned to their former name, they are still the Club Penguin Division under the wider Rebel Federation Gaming Community. Shortly after their return to Club Penguin Armies, the Rebel Penguin Federation set up a ‘Strike Force’. The Strike Force was a smaller portion of the army to battle other armies outside of their main CPPS (Club Penguin Rewritten) and allow them to have battles with other armies without it being solely based on sheer numbers. Queenieliz appointed Ultipenguinj as Strike Force leader, and after many successes with the Strike Force, he was promoted to Rebel Commander alongside Queenieliz. Since their arrival in the Club Penguin Army community, the Rebel Penguin Federation has managed to sustain their position at the top of the leaderboard.
