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...
{{Pet|image=pet.jpg |description=Beast |levels=12-32 |totem=AGuild}}
{{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 is a tameable monster of Godville. Although flightless, it 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.

They can be one of your hero's first pets. As a pet, it tends to eat a number of items from your bag. Your hero is aware of this (somehow), and will often buy more healing items when it is around and the hero isn't thinking about beer.


  • 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.

20:14 Aware of the health benefits he offers, Pumba carefully rubbed against me with his soft fur.
