Penny Crygor, most commonly just known as Penny, is Dr. Crygor's granddaughter. Her first appearance is in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. She admires her grandfather and wants to grow up to be a great scientist, though she also desires to become a famous singer. She attends Diamond Academy.
WarioWare: Smooth Moves
In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Penny enters a competition called the "Invent-Off" at the Diamond Academy and is put against her grandfather to see who is the best inventor. After what appeared to be a mental fight between the two, Penny pulls out her winning invention (a motorcycle) out of thin air which, for some reason, knocks Dr. Crygor down. Penny then takes one of Mike's head-mounted microphones and decided to sing a song to the cheering crowd.
The Japanese Smooth Moves website features a blog section for the WarioWare developers. In her blog entry, Penny posts a photo of her going to the beach wih Dr. Crygor and states she loves her grandfather dearly despite his reputation as a "creep" and a "weirdo". In the comments, Penny responds to a comment left by Ashley explaining her bodysuit was created by her grandfather and can adjust itself to any temperature.
In WarioWare: D.I.Y., Penny helps the player and Wario create microgames. As such, she leads the game's tutorials. During the tutorial, she is paired up with Wario who serves as her student as well as the player. She frequently makes sarcastic quips toward Wario's intelligence and patience, though she is quick to apologize when Wario gets offended.
Game & Wario
In Game & Wario, Penny appears as the host of the multiplayer minigame Fruit, where she gives tips to the "agent" player and reacts to set pieces (such as reactivating the lights when they're turned off).
Like most of the other WarioWare developers, Penny is in the Bowling minigame depicted as a pin.
As with the other WarioWare characters, Penny makes an appearance in Miiverse Sketch Masterpiece Collection, a series of video showcasing pictures of often questionable quality made in the game's Miiverse Sketch mode. Penny's video is themed after drawings of Prince Shōtoku, an important ruler in Japanese history.
With Wario asking for her assistance, Penny appears as the final host of the Twist League in WarioWare Gold. In her story, she develops a potion she calls the Tonally Transformative Elixir, which she hopes will give her the voice she needs to become a famous singer. She uses Dr. Crygor as a test subject, but all that occurs is a slight increase in pitch in his voice and a major stomachache. She then makes an elixir to combat the stomachache, which succeeds, but it is implied the effects of the Tonally Transformative Elixir will not wear off any time soon. Later, during the Dancing Team set of the Ultra League, she arrives with Mona, Jimmy T., Mike, Fronk, Young Cricket and Master Mantis, Kat and Ana, and Dr. Crygor to assist Joe in filling up his new nightclub, Club Joe. After Dr. Crygor and Master Mantis, albeit unintentionally, drive off almost everyone in the club with their dance moves, Penny decides that the thing that really draws people in is music, and proceeds to sing very angelically, which almost instantly fills the nightclub up. She later joins in the party, no doubt continuing to sing. At the very end, she along with all of Wario's friends, split the money Wario gained from the Wario Bowl tournament, much to Wario's own dismay.
Penny makes cameo in the advertising half of Episode 50 of the manga Dr. Mario-kun, in the page dedicated to WarioWare: Smooth Moves. In the strip, Penny walks in Wario's office and asks him how the playtest for the "Dr. Mario RPG" went, only to be surprised by Wario's tantrum as he destroys the entire office due to his frustration with the game's buggy state.
Rhythm Heaven Megamix
Penny makes a cameo appearance in the Wario... Where? challenge set of Rhythm Heaven Megamix. She and Dr. Crygor appear in the background during the set's version of Fillbots, which now features Mike as one of the models of robots being filled with liquid.
Nintendo Badge Arcade
As with most of the series cast, Penny is featured as one of the collectable in the WarioWare set of Nintendo Badge Arcade.
Penny is a young girl with red-orange hair and fair skin. Her hairstyle consists of two long braids with two long strands on the top with a bang swept to the left and a heart accessory at the right, blush cheeks, and she wears round glasses.
In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, she wears a completely zipped pink dress-like lab coat with a collar and a red trim at the bottom with slightly puffy sleeves, black puffy pants, and pink boots. She also has brown eyes.
As of WarioWare: D.I.Y. and Game & Wario, she wears a black bodysuit with a pink heart at the chest, a white lab coat with two large heart-shaped pockets and rolled up sleeves revealing pink cuffs, along with pink gloves and retains her pink boots.
In WarioWare Gold, her appearance remains the same with a few differences. Her eyes are now blue, her bang is thicker, the heart-shaped pockets on her lab coat are pink, her heart headpiece is bigger, she doesn't retain her gloves, and the pink color of her outfit is lighter. In a fantasy, she wears a pink short-sleeved dress with a long magenta ribbon at the neck with a matching pair of magenta headphones with pink stars, and pink flat shoes. As seen in a commercial, she wears a red nightgown with a pink heart on it when she goes to sleep.
