Pet Name: Newth Pet Kind or Species: Penguin Date Introduced: Perhaps on the site's opening date Aug 15th 2004. Description: The Newth is a standard pet that resembles a penguin. It is unknown when it got released but the Newth is one of the original site pets often blamed for the mishaps and subject to many humorous remarks in the news as the "Maintenance Newths". There has been a rumor since as long as anyone can remember that Newths are "mischievous criminals" and want to take over Marada, but that's just silly, isn't it? The Newth is featured in the following activities: the Medicine Shop, the Simerian Antiques, and the Newth Racing game where one bids for the winner. Check out Biala Mountain if you want to try it out for yourself! The Newth was redrawn three times: on 18th October 2005, on 11th April 2011, and on 15th January 2017. The first and second ones had that Pingu-esque dopiness to them with different colours. The third one makes the Newth resemble a real penguin, with bright and dark feathers, webbed feet, and a cheery smile. It is in a pose similar to its Chinese form.
Official Description: Newths love the water and fish. They can often be found balancing flubs on the ends of their nose and catching them in their mouths in one gulp. The Newth hidden agenda is to take over Marada.
Trivia: Their hidden agenda may be a reference to the belief that some penguins are evil, and plot to take over the world. This is further supported by the mask-like markings they have around their eyes, which give them an appearance of a burglar - especially in their Prison form.
Newths have been subject of fun remarks since the site's opening!
