Penilla is one of the monsters encountered in the Dark Ruins, and was first revealed in the FIGHT demonstration video.[1] Penilla was conceptualized and drawn by NoteBlock, a music developer for Undertale Yellow.

Profile Edit

Appearance Edit

Penilla is a small monster with a physical appearance similar to a young dinosaur. She also has a few characteristics similar to a pencil, such as the pencil tip at the back of its head and the eraser at the end of its tail. Penilla is also seen carrying a large pencil, which she attacks with.

Personality Edit

Penilla is an artist who does not get along much with the other monsters besides Sweet Corn. She spends a lot of time on her work, supposing that she needs a break.
