This Template Is Deprecated — USE {{Monster}} INSTEAD

{{Monster}} can now create Pet infoboxes (since all Pets are Monsters), it should be used instead of this template. Setting either of the pet-only parameters (|pet-levels= or |pet-feature=) will automatically create a Pet infobox, or you can add |pet=yes to do it explicitly. So, for example...
OLD:
{{Pet|image=pet.jpg |description=Beast |levels=12-32 |totem=AGuild}}
NEW:
{{Monster|image=pet.jpg |description=Beast |pet-levels=12-32 |totem=AGuild}} or
{{Monster|pet=yes |image=pet.jpg |description=Beast |pet-levels=12-32 |totem=AGuild}}
See Template:Monster for full documentation.
This change will allow Pet articles to benefit from any improvements made to {{Monster}}.

The Ballpoint Penguin (Biro pinguis) is a tameable monster said to be mightier than the swordfish. They have flippers instead of wings like most birds, so they cannot fly. On land, they waddle instead of walking, but are mostly able to maintain the pace of your hero. They walk upright, though when snow conditions are right, they will slide on their bellies.

They are known to squirt ink into an attacker's eyes as a defense mechanism. As an offense mechanism, it has been known to forge famous hero’s signatures onto checks.

They can be one of your hero's first pets. The ballpoint penguin does not hibernate, but as your hero goes to bars, it tends to stay alongside in order to ensure it can eat and drink at every opportunity - so as to store fat reserves for later.


Strengths:

  • Can overwhelm some lower-level monsters with its forgeries
  • Will be popular enough to be found by your hero fairly quickly
  • Will once in a very great while decide to write an inspirational note to your hero
  • Can restore some health to hero

Weaknesses:

  • Runs out of ink after awhile
  • Likes to eat and sleep as much as your hero
  • Will occasionally eat items out of your hero’s pack.

Traits

  • Able to yawn to put monsters to sleep, allowing hero/heroines to finish them off.
  • Is not very brave.
  • One of its attacks is used to generate a somewhat weak static electricity attack, or roar loudly.
!Hero's Diary
18:28 Pumba suddenly raised his muzzle and roared loudly. The Peripheral Terror and its fellows dispersed, shrieking with fear.


  • Has been known to rarely bring random artifacts.
  • At times will point your hero in the correct direction.
  • Has been known to occasionally bring healing items to the hero/heroine, before usually eating them with great pride. With experience they have been known to physically heal their owner.
!Hero's Diary
20:14 Aware of the health benefits he offers, Pumba carefully rubbed against me with his soft fur.


  • With experience, Ballpoint Penguins have been known to sacrifice themselves to save the lives of their master.

12:38 PM The Godville Administrator raised its hand for a deadly final strike against me, when Pilot suddenly threw himself under its feet. The monster stumbled and fell dead on the ground, its neck broken. Pilot was knocked out by the impact of the monster's carcass. Oh, my Lord, if I don't bring him back to his senses in time, he'll lose all his levels and his will to compete!
