The Corrupt Penguin is an enemy that results from a Penguin that has been corrupted, either by the player using Vile Powder or by a Blood Moon event on a Corruption world. The Corrupt Penguin is the Corruption counterpart to the Vicious Penguin.
- On the version, Penguins will still become Corrupt Penguins during a blood moon on a Crimson world.
- Although they spawn during the Blood Moon event, they cannot drop Bloody Tears.
- Unlike the other sprites for corrupted critters, the Corrupt Penguin is bloody instead of purple.
- The Bestiary entry for the Corrupt Penguin: "During a Blood Moon, the normally docile penguins fall under the hostile influence of the Corruption."
