Pengy (originally known as Master Pengy and also spelled as Pengi) is an occasionally-reoccurring enemy in the Kirby series. Its appearance is that of a primarily blue penguin, with a large beak and white eyebrows. It also has white streaks throughout its body. Pengy is roughly the size of Kirby, much like most other enemies. Interestingly, despite being based on penguins, Pengys cannot survive in water.

Pengys attack by using their frigid breath to encase Kirby in a block of ice. When Kirby inhales and swallows it, he receives the Ice Copy Ability.

Game appearances

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Adventure Pengi.png Pengy makes its debut appearance in Kirby's Adventure and also appears in the remake. It serves a similar function to Hot Head, breathing ice in place of fire, but it is also capable of moving in bursts by sliding along its belly.

Kirby's Dream Land 2

KDL2MasterPengy.png Known as Master Pengy in this game, Pengy appears here, bearing a different look, but serving the same purpose.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror & Kirby Squeak Squad

KNiD E Pengi.png Pengy appears in both of these games, looking and acting identically to the way it did in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.

When possessed by Ghost Kirby, Pengy can be made to walk, jump, and breathe ice. It cannot be made to perform its sliding move.


In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Pengy can be found in Mustard Mountain, Olive Ocean, Peppermint Palace, and Radish Ruins.

In Kirby Squeak Squad, Pengy can be found in the following levels and stages:

In Kirby: Right Back at Ya!

Master Pengy and his Pengy followers in 'The Chill Factor'.

In episode 66 of Kirby: Right Back at Ya! titled 'The Chill Factor', Dream Land is visited by a massive iceberg controlled by a race of Pengys led by Master Pengy, who is capable of speech. Of these Pengys, only Master Pengy resembles the Pengys from the games, with his pronounced eyebrows and the ability to breathe ice. The other Pengys lack eyebrows and many carry spears instead.

As the Pengys move in, Dream Land experiences a massive shift in climate, becoming notably colder as a result of the Pengys' influence. To try and drive them out, Kirby attempts to defeat their leader by obtaining the Ice ability, but this is ineffective. King Dedede calls upon the N.M.E. Salesman to send anything that can help, and is sent a super hot sauce. Instead of drinking the sauce, Kirby takes it to the nearby volcano and pours the sauce into the caldera, causing the volcano to erupt and counterbalance the climate, forcing the Pengys to leave and find a colder place to live.
