Penguins rescued in Sonic The Hedgehog on the Sega Game Gear.......
Pengling Dec 14, 2023
I've gathered up a few more penguin sightings;


The stage "Shiny Slippy Icy Floor" in Bomberman 64 (Nintendo 64) features penguin foes who waddle and slide around erratically in an attempt to collide with Bomberman.


The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy version of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back (Proton) features penguin enemies, just as the original did.


Aimlessly-waddling penguin robots show up in the snow-and-ice-themed Diamond Dust Zone, in Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island (Mega Drive).


The snow zone in Sonic Triple Trouble (Game Gear) includes skiing penguin-shaped bombs! They're also thrown at you by that world's boss, which is a large penguin robot.

Man, I remember Happy Penguin! I would've always been on the "Penguins in GPL games are cute." side of the poll.

I even discovered recently, thanks to the current installment of your Building a Retro Linux Gaming Computer series, that there are apparently a couple of old Bomberman clones where Tux appears - I'll have to investigate those further!

Got a few more!


Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards features squat little penguin enemies known as Emps. An Emp will run away in a panic as soon as it sees you!


In keeping with other entries in the series, Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic The Hedgehog 2 has some stages that include little penguin friends who need to be rescued from enemy robots.


Large penguin enemies, who erratically hop and slide around trying to collide with the player, appear in Parasol Stars: The Story of Bubble Bobble 3.


Pudgy penguins float down on umbrellas in one of the stages of the parody cute-'em-up, Star Parodier.
