A Penguin in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut.

The Penguin made its debut in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. In gameplay, Penguins can alter the stats, appearance and personality of a Chao. These animals are found inside Badniks. Simply destroy the Badnik to release the Penguin inside, and then touch it to pick it up. When released, the Penguins have a green sphere around them, which disappears shortly afterwards. They are found in the following Action Stages:

Upon entering a Chao Garden with a Penguin, it will leave the playable character and run around the garden. The Penguin will sparkle if it has not given them to a Chao in the garden. Should the player give a Penguin to a Chao, the Chao will embrace it, attaining its appearance and behavior and raising its stats according to the Penguin's. The Penguin will then lose its sparkle and disappear shortly after.

Sonic Adventure 2/Sonic Adventure 2: BattleEdit

In Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, the Penguins appear again as Animals used for raising Chao. The way the player acquires the Penguins, releases them into the Chao Garden, and uses them to alter Chao, is the same as in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. The Penguins similarly disappear after being used and possess a temporary green sphere around them when released from robots. However, they do not sparkle in Chao Gardens like in the previous title

In gameplay, the Penguins are either found inside Badnik enemies or the second Chao Container opened in an Action Stage, or hiding somewhere in the Action Stages, usually inside Cages or Pipes. They are found in the following Action Stages:

In this game, the Penguins were among the Animals that came to Casinopolis, only to get kidnapped by Dr. Eggman and turned into robotic slaves. To save the Penguins and his other Animal friends, Sonic entered the Egg Cup Tournament. Once Sonic completes the game's Story mode, a shot of a Penguin leaving Casinopolis together with Sonic's friends and the other Animals is shown.
