A Link to the Past
In A Link to the Past, Pengators usually reside in the freezing catacombs of the Ice Palace Dungeon. Pengators make their domain on sheets of ice, which aids their assaults and causes difficulty for their prey. They lunge at their quarry at high speeds, sliding across the ice on their stomachs with their mouths open, showing their razor-sharp fangs.
Four Swords Adventures
A Link Between Worlds
In A Link Between Worlds, Pengators appear in the Ice Ruins and the Treacherous Tower, and are very similar to their appearance in A Link to the Past. In the Treacherous Tower, six Pengators appear on floor 14 of the Advanced Level, which Link must fight in order to progress to the next floor. In the Ice Ruins, four Pengators fight Link alongside a Big Pengator, a larger variant of Pengator, as the Sub-Bosses.
- Pengators have some similarities to the mythical Kappa of Japanese folklore, particularly their bald heads surrounded by tufts of white hair-like feathers, their beaks, and their seemingly amphibious nature. Pengators, particularly the ones in Four Swords Adventures, also resemble the Northern Rockhopper Penguin.
The name Pengator might be a combination of the the words, Alligator and Penguin.
