Eggman has employed Penguinators during numerous operations, including his initial invasion of Angel Island. Dr. Eggman Nega also employed these robots while impersonating him in his efforts to unleash the Ifrit. They also make up part of the Badnik force associated with the Artika Egg Army, and thus joined in an attack on Sonic the Hedgehog and Rotor the Walrus when the pair were in the Cool Edge Zone. (VG: StH3, SRi2; StH: #276)
Penguinators have a black pin-shaped body. They have two beady eyes, blue upper armor with similar fins and a helmet, grey belly, and a long and sharp yellow beak.
The Penguinators can slide expertly along ice on their bellies and are capable of rocket-powered flight, but this can possibly simply be a large jump from the slide.
- Penguinator was based on the badnik of the same name in the video game, Sonic & Knuckles. It was unnamed in the comic, but is considered tier 2 canon by this site's canon policy, as it does not contradict already established canon from tier 1. Additionally, the Post-Super Genesis Wave Timeline has established the events of most of the Sonic games prior to Sonic Lost World as canon.
