Appears in Stage 3 (Antarctica Research Lab), Scene 1.
The Penguin Bombs are small robots shaped like penguins which explode on contact. These little machines are equipped with jet thrusters on their backs and ski feet, allowing them to dash quickly across the snow in their attempt to self-destruct by hitting the enemy. Once Hiryu enters their line of sight, the Penguin Bombs first lower their bodies to stand perpendicular to the ground, then propel themselves at high speed to strike him.
Hiryu finds a group of them in the middle of the lab's exterior security zone, either alone or carried by the Cold Weather Models. Although a bit of a nuisance when around other enemies, Hiryu can harmlessly destroy them in mid-flight before they can damage him. Some Penguin Bombs fall from the sky during the Missile Mobile battle as well.
Their given scores appear to be glitched, as they give uncharacteristically big points (4700, or 6000 if they make contact with Hiryu) for such a small enemy. The PlayStation port corrects this, as they now provide 600 points and no score for hitting Hiryu.
