Penta Penguin is a brilliantly brilliant penguin seen in a variety of Crash Bandicoot games. He is usually an enemy to Crash. But he is also an enemy to Dr. Neo Cortex. And an enemy to Dr. Nitrus Brio. And an enemy to Dr. Nefarious Tropy. And an enemy to Dr. N. Trance. And an enemy to Dr. N. Gin. And an enemy to Dr. Glenn Beck.


Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes BackEdit


Ah, Penta Penguin... the first penguin seen in a sidescrolling area...

In Crash 2, Penta appeared as the first penguin in the side-scrolling section of Snow Go. Some fans believe he's also hidden somewhere in The Eel Deal.

Crash Bandicoot 3: WarpedEdit

Penta appeared in the Dingodile fight as a scared-as-fuck penguin in the third game of the series. When Dingodile was Dingodead, Penta was less scared. He likes to bounce on corpses.

Crash Team RacingEdit

Penta was a super secret racer in Crash Team Racing. He was unlocked through super password knowing powers. He was a very fast, yet very average racer. He was fast and powerful when visiting Europe, but pretty boring when in his American home.

Crash BashEdit

Penta starred in this fan-favourite game during the hilarious Snow Bash event. He is very demanding of attention.

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge AdventureEdit

In Crash's first GBA outing, Penta had a pretty interesting role. Every single penguin in the game is said to be Penta.


  • Penta is the only character in the series to have different attributes outside of his home country. Because he's a better driver in Europe than he is in America, this can only mean one thing. America sucks.
  • Penta's name might be a pun on the phrase "pent-up", which means "repressed or suppressed, especially of emotions or impulses". This is plausible because he is suppressed in the game unless you know the super secret password button combination letters, or because he was unfinished in the USANTSC version of the game.
