The Vicious Penguin is an enemy that results from a Penguin that has been corrupted, either by the player using Vicious Powder or by a Blood Moon event on a Crimson world. The Vicious Penguin is the Crimson counterpart to the Corrupt Penguin.
- Although they spawn during the Blood Moon event, they cannot drop Bloody Tears.
- The Bestiary entry for the Vicious Penguin: "During a Blood Moon, the normally docile penguins become infested with the contagious growth of the Crimson."
