A quest boss from Taisen Puzzle Dama, Penclaw appears as a boss in the boss rush of Jikkyō Oshaberi Parodius (Arcade Only). He appears after John Wan Jirou is defeated, and enters in coming from an underground dome (A homage to Pentaro X). His weak point is his head. The giant penguin has a bucket on his head- however after taking enough damage, the bucket explodes leaving suicide bullets. He teaches other penguins in a school seen in the background.

Attack Patterns

Penclaw's attack pattern is similar to the Horo Temple Ghost's but throws iceballs instead of plates.

Blue: Penclaw will commonly shoot blue ice at the player.

Yellow: Penclaw will fire yellow ice in random directions which will ricochet off the sides of the screen. He is also invincible during this.

Red: These will follow the player and melt away after awhile.


  • While battling Penclaw he would make an array of humorous expressions. Also when his hit, he would say some japanese sentences or words. These all are referring to his game.
  • When you defeat him, he would nod his head in approval, while having his hands wrapped around each other. This is his "defeated"-pose from Taisen Puzzle Dama.
