Pendril is an enemy in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.


They are blue penguins with drills replacing their beaks. They appear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story located in Plack Beach and can be fought only with Mario and Luigi.


They battle Mario and Luigi by popping out of the ground before nose-diving into one of them. Occasionally, when they re-surface, a rock becomes stuck on their nose. If either Mario or Luigi attack them with the rock stuck to them, the rock shatters and a Bob-omb runs at the one who attacked. Eventually the Pendril re-enters the underground without the rock.


  • The name of Pendril is a portmanteau of "Penguin" and "drill".
  • If the player hacks the game with Bowser battling one, when it attacks, as the Pendril ends the attack, the game will freeze, forcing the player to reset.
