Skop is a very intelligent boy from Metropolis Island.
His family moved to Penguin Village because his parents were worried that all he cared about was studying and that he had no friends. When he is introduced to the class, everyone thinks Skop is amazing and wants to be around him while he is annoyed and wants them to stay away from him because of their lack of intelligence and refinement. However, after seeing Arale solving all of the advanced math problems in his workbook perfectly, Skop gains respect for his new classmates and becomes friends with them. When he finally moves away again, Arale pulls a string attached to him throwing him very far.
