Game appearances

Sonic the Hedgehog 3

Penguinators in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 waddle slowly back and forth until the player approaches at IceCap Zone. When the player is close to the Badnik, Penguinator will then attack the player with a belly slide. The player can easily dodge this attack and the Penguinator can be easily defeated with Spin Attack.

Sonic Lost World

Penguinators appeared in both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World, where they are featured in Frozen Factory. During the game, it turns out that Badniks, including Penguinators, got hijacked by the Deadly Six. Penguinators are seen to have the same attack pattern from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 by slowly moving towards the player and then belly slides at Sonic.
