Penguin Bombers (ペンギンボマーズ Pengin Bomāzu?)[1] are enemies that appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced penguin-based Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.

Based on Penguins, Penguin Bombers have an ignited fuse on their heads. Basic details include black and white armor, two black eyes, a short yellow beak and white flippers. They move forward with yellow skis attached to their feet.

In Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble, the Penguin Bombers only appear in Robotnik Winter Zone. In gameplay, they are robotic suicide bombers that waddle slowly down the slopes in their Zone, forming explosive obstacles for the playable character. If the player is used the Jet Board power-up, Sonic can dash through Penguin Bombers to defeat them easily. Alternatively, the player can dispatch Penguin Bombers with a standard Spin Jump or Spin Attack as both Sonic or Tails.

In Robotnik Winter Zone Act 3, Giga Thomas "Pen", the boss of Robotnik Winter Zone, is revealed to be the creator of the Penguin Bombers, who can spit them out from its mouth.

Like the other Badniks in the game, no Animals pop out of the Penguin Bombers when they are destroyed.
