NICE! You caught all the puffles. Now their ghostly energy is bottled up! Everything has worked out just the way I wanted...
~ Skip's most famous quote as he reveals his true nature.
Skip is the sole antagonist in the Halloween Party of 2014 in the popular multi-player game, Club Penguin. He appeared in the Puffle Hotel, initially as an ally to the player but was later revealed to be a dark spirit attempting to haunt the island forever.
Gary (the island's scientist) sent players in to search for his uncle, Gariwald VIII, who is a ghost. Skip is also a ghost who pretended to be a bellhop in order to trick the player into building a ghost catching machine with parts from around the hotel. The machine was supposed to catch ghost puffles, which the hotel was haunted with. After the player completes the machine and catches all the puffles, Skip reveals himself to be a ghost, also revealing that he had kidnapped Gariwald VIII. He catches the player in a cage, and plans to use the energy from the ghost puffles to become so strong that he can haunt the island forever. However, the player manages to defeat Skip, and Skip flees, while all the ghost puffles as well as Gariwald VIII are freed. Skip's fate is unclear however most think he was either killed/erased from existence or escaped safely.
Hi! Hope I didn't spook ya. I'm Skip the bellhop. I just started working here and all this creepy stuff's happening.

You caught the ghost puffles for me. NICE! Now I'm gonna use their ghostly energy to HAUNT ALL OF CLUB PENGUIN! You thought the puffle hotel was scary? Wait 'til you see what I have lined up!
Skip is regarded as one of the most evil villains from the game, as well as the villain with the most unique motive.
Skip was apparently supposed to be reappear in a later party however due to Club Penguin being shut down in favour of the mobile app Club Penguin Island Skip will most likely never return sadly.
His name is apparently a nod to how hotel elevators in some countries skip the 13th floor.
Skip is very similar to the following villains-
Rowan North from the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters since both are originally ordinary hotel workers who later become evil spirits (However while Skip has presumably been a ghost for years, Rowan only becomes one during his movie) both are also rouges and at first glance appear to be kind and friendly. Both are also incredibly powerful and use their innocent looking demeanour to hide their true intentions.
Turbo from Wreck-It-Ralph since both are male Disney villains posing under an innocent looking alias who reveal themselves as villains later on. Both also become monsters towards the end of their stories. However while it's debateable if Skip survived his fate Turbo is obviously dead.
Quirinus Quirrell from Harry Potter and The Philosopher's stone since both appear originally as innocent individuals who use their odd mannerisms and innocent nature to disguise their dark secrets. Both are also later revealed to be evil masterminds (however while Skip is working for himself completely alone and had been a ghost years prior to his debut appearance, Quirrell was under Voldemort's influence and had only shared his body with the latter for roughly a year prior). Also again Skip's fate is up for debate while Quirrell is obviously dead.
Skip and Tusk have been regarded as the two villains with the highest chance of reappearing again, this is most likely due to the fact that they are fan favourites and that their stories have not been concluded as of now.
