First appearance Donkey Kong (1994)
Subject origin Penguin

Penpen are a species of penguins featured in Donkey Kong for the Game Boy. They inhabit the Iceberg, and two are seen together in Stage 7-3. Penpen behave similarly to previous enemies Aqua Man and Miira, as they slowly walk in a single direction, turning around upon reaching a ledge or margin. Penpen are capable of harming Mario if he comes into contact with their front or back sides, but can be safely ridden from atop their heads. While in this stance, it is possible for Mario to pick up a Penpen and toss it at other enemies.
