The Penguin is a cheat unit in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten. However, it does not appear in the Age of Empires II: The Forgotten Empires mod. It is an infantry unit with comparatively high armor and damage output. It appears in the Scenario Editor.

Penguins have the same unit responses as human units.

Trivia Edit

  • The Penguin resembles an Emperor Penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri), the largest species alive. It is native to Antarctica.
  • Although created as a joke, an actual Penguin Gaia unit (either as a weak huntable like Deer or gatherable, like Box Turtles) wouldn't be out of the geographical scope of Age of Empires II. The word "Penguin" (from Welsh Pen Gwyn, "White Head") was used first for the Great Auk (Pinguinus impennis), a flightless seabird that was found in the North Atlantic during the Medieval period, from Maine and Greenland to Norway and Spain, and was hunted to extinction in 1844. Actual penguins (of the species Spheniscus humboldti) live along the Pacific South American coast and were consumed by the Incas.
