Can Prinnies swim?

Postby 17thColossi » Tue Feb 02, 2010 7:03 pm

I've been pondering this question for a good amount of time now. I mean, they are penguins...penguins are excellent swimmers. But they also appear to be made of plush material. Which means that they would absorb water quite fast.

It's perplexing.

Considering Prinnies are the butt monkeys of the universe.

I'd say no, just because it makes yet another way for them to suffer weird deaths.

I guess that makes sense. Still, it would be interesting to see how they react to water and stuff.

Well, maybe they could. Because they're kinda shiny which would make me think they're rubbery... and plus they're full of souls, which don't weigh a lot- (especially not if just anyone can freely hurl a prinny) so I would assume they might float rather well...and they have flippers, which would still help some, even though the feet are useless....

Yeah. I guess peg legs wouldn't help with swimming. They aren't really built for water. Hmmmm...I'm still perplexed by this.

you die when you fall in the water in Prinny Can I Really Be The Hero, if that is any indication on their swimming abilities.

Well, it has been solved. In recent screens of Prinny 2, Hero Prinny is in fact underwater. So they do apparently sink (he is not floating under the water) but they can breath underwater (according to the screen)

I was just about to write the Mythbusters about this too. :lol:

If they swim, they probably cant explode. Another advantage for swimming. :D

Prinny- A penguin who can't swim, explodes a lot, and also makes a good servant. Favorite word is Dood.

now why would something be magically unable to explode underwater? that's only relevant if there's anything like a fuse that can be put out by water, there are fuses that go on even when submersed, and all explosions actually become much more powerful underwater since water doesn't compress like air does
