Rifle is a female Little Penguin (Eudyptula minor) that lives at the Shipshape Aquarium. She carries a backpack of flyers for the "Swashbuckler Spectacular" show and is also the mother of Sniper.


Both Rifle and Sniper's names come from "sniper rifle". In-game, Herman Crab was the one who named them both.



Rifle's mugshot.

Despite being called a Little Penguin, Rifle has a number of anatomical inaccuracies: her feet are yellow instead of pink (likely changed to make her stepping in pink paint more obvious), her beak is yellow rather than dark grey-black, and she is larger (as seen in a cutscene) than the mere 30-33 cm (12 to 13 inches) that the species normally reaches.
