The ballpoint penguin, although flightless, is still mightier than the swordfish. They are known to squirt ink in an attacker's eyes as a defense mechanism, as well as forge signatures on checks as an offense mechanism.
Able to yawn to put monsters to sleep, allowing hero/heroines to finish them off. Is not very brave.
They can be one of your hero's first pets. As a pet, it tends to eat a number of items from your bag.
One of its attacks is used to generate a somewhat weak static electricity attack.
Has been known to occasionally bring healing items to the hero/heroine, before usually eating them with great pride. Has been known to rarely bring random items.
