The Down for Maintenance Pteri is a Red Pteri and a one-player challenger that users can fight in the Battledome. He is based off of an image of a Red Pteri that is shown when the Neopets website is down for maintenance.


The "Down for Maintenance" screen features a Red Pteri. See bigger

For many years, the screen that is displayed when the Neopets website is unavailable has included generic, crying Red Pteri. After a while, users began to associate this Red Pteri with the frustration of not being able to access the website. In Editorial #146 of the Neopian Times, Neopets user Tonya1982 asked TNT to make the "Neopets is Down For Maintenance Pteri" into a Battledome challenger so that Neopets users could "take their frustrations out on him". TNT granted this request, and on July 27, 2004, the Down for Maintenance Pteri was released as an official Battledome challenger.
