The Rebel Penguin Marines, abbreviated to RPM were an anti-RPF rebel faction who split from the RPF following the removal of the RPF's leader, Elmikey, from the Army on December 7, 2017. They are former-RPF soldiers and veterans of other armies who remain loyal to Elmikey, and fight to defeat the RPF and let freedom prevail. They were an indirect revival of the RPFM.
Removal of Elmikey from The RPF
On December 7, 2017, a leader of The RPF, Elmikey, was exiled from the army. Elmikey had been accused of corruption, laziness and having a dictator-like mindset towards The RPF. His removal was announced on The RPF website on December 7, to the celebration of some and the fury of others. In response, Elmikey founded his own rebel army - The Rebel Penguin Marines. Some members of The RPF were furious that Elmikey had been removed, and remained loyal to him. Several of these RPF soldiers ultimately left the army, joining The RPM. Their goal is to defeat the RPF, and become an army where "freedom can prevail".
War Against The RPF
Main Article: RPF-RPM War
Their first public demonstration was held on December 9, 2017. During this demonstration, several members of The Tuba Army joined them. Shortly after, the two armies officially allied together against The RPF. It was assumed that The RPM would be fighting alongside The Tubas in The Tuba-RPF War. However, it was announced by the Tuba Leader, Cajan, on the officialy Tuba website that they were not allying with The RPM.
On December 10, 2017, RPM General Smarmylegend published a speech on The RPM website. The speech attacked the leaders of The RPF, defended Elmikey, praised Elmikey's impact and legacy on The RPF, and effectively officially declared war. As of December 31, 2017, Smarmylegend is no longer part of The RPM.
Battle of Deep Freeze
On December 12, 2017, the RPM and RPF clashed in their first battle. The RPF-organised event "Operation: Rebel Burst" was interrupted by members of The RPM on the server Deep Freeze. Elmikey, himself, was present - as was Popsicle, the RPF Leader. The RPF used its classic tactics of "bombs", repeated chants and synchronized emoticon use. The RPF also used a "pile" tactic, where its soldiers swarmed members of The RPM, covering them. During the battle, Elmikey was briefly kicked from the server which caused several of the RPM soldiers to become demoralized. After declaring victory, The RPF went to the Dance Club to celebrate. The RPM, however, took this as a retreated and declared that they were victorious. As a result, it has not been determined which army won the battle, though the discord of the RPF confirmed that the the RPF did indeed go to the Dance Club to celebrate.
Skirmish of Glacier
On December 22nd, The RPF was having a Olympic event on Oasis/Glacier. RPM decided to raid the event. This raid was believed to be planned and pitched to Elmikey before the even started. Soon RPM went to Glacier in attempt to disrupt the event, however it was a failure.
Banning from CPR
In mid-late December 2017, Elmikey decided to change his goals. Instead of ruling over the RPF again, he would oppose and overcome them. This was a decision made after it became crystal clear most RPF troops didn't want Elmikey back. His first attempt was to work with people dossing the RPF site [This has been proven with multiple leaked dms from "nulltype"], however this failed due to the RPF being organised enough to just use their discord to operate, and then temporarily using an old website. Elmikey then allegedly worked with the same hackers to attempt to take down Club Penguin Rewritten. Evidence of this was sent to CPR's owner, Codey, and Elmikey was banned permanently, along with the entire RPM, though only Elm was actually IP banned.
This is, in some ways, a huge blow to the organisation as CPR is the primary alternative CPPS, with over 1 million users. Since, the group have moved to Penguin Oasis. Elmikey has denied the allegation though this screenshot suggests Codey had something substantial enough to ban Elmikey.
On the 12th January, 2018, the RPF website, now back online, released an article giving a lot of evidence on the dos attacks. See the full article here:
The article details that Elmikey and another RPM member known as Security worked with a RPM member and ddosser known as NullType to take down the RPF website. Further light was also shed on Elmikey being banned from Club Penguin Rewritten. Apparently, the attacks occurred because the CPR owner Codey was helping the RPF sort out their website. In the end, Codey found out that Elmikey was "responsible" through Security, who had become fed up with Elm. He sent Codey a series of Discord messages regarding it.
On January 11th, 2018, the RPM logged onto Operation Horizon III. This was it's return. Although it didn't max as much troops as before, it was short notice.
On 21st April 2018, the RPM was shut down by Elmikey. Reasons made for the move included that the RPM never recovered from it's removal from CPR.
