This article contains spoilers about a hidden element in CP3D. It is suggested that if you have not found this yourself then you do so before reading this article.
Richard, also known as Agent R, is an original character in CP3D that was created by the fans. He was a secret agent before going missing. His color is old blue and he uses the original penguin model.
Richard was originally a placeholder penguin model unintentionally left in the Mine Shack, near the Cave Entrance. He was given his name by fans in-game, and the name was popularized by videos made by alaviivamies44.
The placeholder penguin was removed in the update for the Halloween Party 2018. Due to fan response, Richard was added back into the game after the party ended, but with an invisible barrier preventing players from reaching him. Eventually, he was removed once more when the room was updated on May 6, 2019.
- During the Western Party 2019, wanted posters for Richard were posted around the island.
- During the Halloween Party 2019, a shadow of Richard could be seen behind the Town.
- During the 1st Anniversary Party, Richard appeared as a decoration on the back of the anniversary cake.
- After the Stage was built, an information board was added to the Plaza. One of the papers on the board is a missing penguin poster for Richard.
On May 6, 2019, Richard was removed from the Cave Entrance, and thus went missing. Since then there have been many attempts to find him and flyers around the island with his name on them. These include "WANTED ALIVE" posters with his face and name on them during the Western Party 2019, and a "Have you seen this penguin?" poster with only his face located in the Plaza.
- He was first officially recognized in-game through the posters in the Western Party 2019.
- During the Western Party 2019, a player took the name "Richard" and logged on multiple times during the party.
- The Penguin Band use the same outdated model as Richard.
