The Penguin[1] is a member of the Brown Sugar Pirates in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. He is the leader of Sherbet Land and is an optional boss in the game. A large and bulky penguin sporting the pirates' emblem on his stomach, the Penguin wields two vicious spiked boxing gloves, which he uses to menace Wario. He is vulnerable to jump attacks, but will protect his head with a spiked helmet after Wario's initial attack. This helmet can be knocked off by Body Slamming the Penguin in the back, or by throwing a 10 Gold Coin at it. Rather than producing a large amount of coins upon defeat, the game rewards Wario with five 3-Up Hearts. Additionally, the Penguin is the only boss that can be fought multiple times on the same save file (besides Captain Syrup if the game is reset).

You can earn a load of extra coins here, but Wario must watch out for those slippery ice chunks that flow through the enormous Sherbet area. Once Wario advances to the end of the level, he’ll find a pesky Penguin that will cause him some grief. The reward for defeating him makes it worth the effort!"
