— Skip Revealing himself as a ghost
Skip was a ghost masquerading as a bellhop at the Puffle Hotel who appeared during the Halloween Party 2014, tricking the player through the ghost-infested Puffle Hotel in order to repair a ghost-capturing machine inside the building, so he could continue with his evil plans.
Skip initially presented himself as the new bellhop of the Puffle Hotel during the party. Unknown to the rest of the island, however, he was an evil ghost in disguise as a penguin in order to steal Ghost Puffle energy. After kidnapping Gary's uncle, Gariwald VIII, he tricked the player into capturing and rounding up ghost puffles and machine parts that he would assemble in the storage room on the 12th floor. Once all parts were assembled correctly, he began to extract the energy from the ghost puffles so he could begin terrorizing Club Penguin forever.
Unsuccessful in his plan, the player defeated Skip, and saved Club Penguin.
Skip was shown to be cunning, manipulative and resourceful during his time haunting the Puffle Hotel. His motives were to induce fear and sorrow to all around him; this is evident in his capture of Gariwald VIII and later him stating he wished to "haunt" the island. His ambition lead to him getting extremely angry or frustrated when people attempted to intervene (an example of this would be him blocking your path on the 13th floor).
- Dom, a doorman from the play Ruby and The Ruby, has an outfit that is similar to Skip's when he appears as a penguin.
- Skip's ghost form is similar to the penguin's ghost form as seen at the Halloween Party 2012.
- His Bellhop Hat is given out as a reward for anyone who beats him.
- Instead of flippers, his ghost form has hands.
- It is mentioned in the EPF Handbook that an invention may allow Skip to reappear.
His name may be based on the fact that most hotel elevators in some countries "skip" the 13th floor.
