Chill Penguin

Chill Penguin (or Icy Penguigo in Japanese) is a boss character from the Mega Man series of action platformer games.


Chill Penguin is an Maverick designed to resemble a penguin in most of the Mega Man X games. There was strong animosity between Chill Penguin and Flame Mammoth. He could be considered one of the easiest Mavericks.


In all games he appeared, Chill Penguin will create two ice sculptures based on penguins. If Mega Man X is close to him when blowing ice, he'll be frozen. If X takes damage or shake, the ice will break. Chill Penguin will be difficult when he's on air, so Mega Man X must slide under him. When he's using the walls, he must go down and slide under him. Chill Penguin will then jump on the ring and the room will have a blizzard, meaning that it cannot blow X away only, but would crash into him when using the walls and if there are sculptures, they'll crash into X. Chill Penguin will repeat the pattern again.

Other in-game appearances[]

Mega Man Xtreme and Mega Man Xtreme 2[]

Chill Penguin's sprite is aqua and yellow only. He behaves like the one in his first appearance.

In Mega Man Xtreme, his weakness is Speed Burner.

In Mega Man Xtreme 2, he appears as a boss in Boss Attack mode.

Mega Man Maverick Hunter X[]

In Mega Man Maverick Hunter X, Chill Penguin has a speaking role in the game and his voice actor is Dean Galloway (he also voices him in the quarter minute movie, The Day of Σ), the voice actor of Dr. Wily in Mega Man Powered Up. He still behaves like his first appearance, except Vile can defeat him using Wild Horse Kick.


  • The weapon X gains from him is similar to Freeze Cracker, the weapon that Mega Man gains in Mega Man 7.
  • If X uses Fire Wave, he'll be ignited and will squawk in the regular Mega Man X game and the Maverick Hunter X remake.
  • Chill Penguin is one of the only bosses creating ice sculptures. The others are Blizzard Buffalo, Frost Man and Cold Man.
