Pogoin' penguin

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Pogoin' penguin is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, introduced in Dragon Quest VII. It is a peculiar penguin monster that hops back and forth on its feet.


Popping purple penguins that are constantly hot footing it into battle, unable to stay still for a single second, hopping from one foot to another. The bellies of this brazen bird-beast form a fierce face-like pattern when paired with the eye-like markings across their breast, making it almost seem like the mouth is moving whenever they boisterously bounce around. In battle their almost as goofy as they look, belly flopping on to foes as their only real method of attack. They can cast Fuddle in an attempt to confuse all foes, but they're never strong enough to have enough magic strength to be able to properly summon the spell. Their one saving grace is the ability to overwhelm adventurers with sheer numbers by calling for their fellow bumbling penguins to aid them in battle.
