Sensei (formerly ??????) is the master of elements. Sensei appears to be a very old penguin. He has a white beard, thick white eyebrows, a traditional oriental conical straw hat and a gray robe.


Background History[edit]

Sensei, master of the elements.

When Sensei was young, his closest friend was Tusk. When they grew older, Sensei and Tusk were taught the ancient art of Card-Jitsu - their friendship began to split apart as they became stronger. On a sunny day, Sensei challenged Tusk to a friendly battle of Snow to practice. When Tusk created an oversized snowball to throw at Sensei, Sensei deflected it and the result was an avalanche. Sensei managed to escape from the avalanche; however, it was too late for Tusk. Sensei spent weeks attempting to recover Tusk until he discovered a broken tusk. Upon this discovery, Sensei vowed to master the elements and teach others to respect their power. Following the construction of the Dojo Sensei went on a "long journey", which, according to him, lasted until his return in November 2008. He learned about the elements of Fire, Water, and Snow on his quest.


Sensei during Dig Out the Dojo.

Sensei was first seen on Club Penguin after the Storm, which heavily damaged the Dojo rooftop. It is thought that he started the Dig Out the Dojo project, because throughout the ordeal he was seen digging snow in the Dojo Courtyard (as ??????). When the Dojo was successfully dug out, Sensei revealed himself, as well as a new card game known as Card-Jitsu. After earning your Black Belt in Card-Jitsu, you must beat Sensei in a Card-Jitsu match to earn the Ninja Mask, thus becoming a ninja.


Sensei's first role in 2009 was when he hid the eggs for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. From July 3rd until July 5th 2009, he revealed a new technique later revealed to be cloud waves. This was also his first appearance as a meetable mascot. Shortly prior to the Halloween Party 2009, the volcano near the Dojo started to become active. Sensei decided to create Amulets (like his) to advance ninja training further. He determined that it was time to start mastering the element of fire soon afterwards, which lead to "Sensei's Scavenger Hunt". After the scavenger hunt was complete and all of the fire items were collected, the Fire Dojo was built on the top of the volcano. Along with the new dojo, a new training game known as Card-Jitsu Fire was created by Sensei so that ninjas could master the element of Fire and become Fire Ninjas.


When The Great Storm of 2010 arrived, Sensei knew that the time had come for ninjas to master the element of water. After the rainstorm cleared, he decided to start the "Water Hunt", which sent ninjas on a hunt for water items. After the hunt was completed and all items were collected, the Water Dojo was built in a nearby Waterfall. Once again he created a new training game, Card-Jitsu Water, to help ninjas master the element of water and become Water Ninjas.


In November 2011 Sensei set up a Card-Jitsu Party, to recruit more penguins to be ninjas, fire ninjas and water ninjas.


In 2013 Sensei waddled around during the Chinese New Year. Sensei waddled once more for the Hollywood Party to train actors how to stunt. In early May, Sensei vanished and left a note saying for ninjas to train. He returned soon after to train penguins in the art of Card-Jitsu Snow.


Please note the content in this section is made to look non-canon even though it was created by Club Penguin. So, as a result none of this information may be completely accurate to canonical Club Penguin history.

Shadow Guy and Gamma Gal: Heroes Unite![edit]

Main article: Shadow Guy and Gamma Gal: Heroes Unite!

Presumably before 2008, Sensei trained a girl named Amy who would later become the heroine known as Gamma Gal. This is set up as non-canon because it is a story written by a normal penguin in 2010, and their story has many time flaws and other errors; which you can view here.

Never Wake a Sleeping Sensei[edit]

Main article: Never Wake a Sleeping Sensei

Sensei pretends to be sleepwalking to get four ninjas to have teamwork, rather than fight.

  • Together, Tusk and I began training for the art of Card-Jitsu, we learned to control the unyielding flame and brace the crushing wave, and bow to the majestic snow flurry... But Tusk lacked discipline and as our training intensified, our friendship changed.


During his visits, Sensei sometimes talks to penguins in haiku.

It is quite easy,

To sound like you have wisdom,

When talking haiku.

Sensei's knowledge of other Famous Penguins[edit]

Sensei has three explanations about his knowledge of Rockhopper. His three quotes contradict each other. This may be because Sensei is an old penguin who may be forgetful:

  • Rockhopper: Rockhopper, you say? He is a most wonderous pirate, as well as wise.
  • Rockhopper: Rockhopper? I do not know this lad. Does he know me?
  • Rockhopper: Rockhopper. Silly penguin. Much to learn in the ways of ninja.
  • Gary: Gary? I do not know much about him... I hear he is a famous scientist.
  • Aunt Arctic: Aunt Arctic writes in the paper, doesn't she? Listen to her words.

Sensei's Games[edit]

These are games that sensei has created to play with other penguins when he's waddling around Club Penguin.

  • Chat-Jitsu: Sensei would name an element, and players have to answer with what beats it, as fast as they can (Sensei often tricks people, by naming random things like sushi).
  • Hit-a-Gong!: Sensei would name a creature, and players have to hit the gong with the named creature on it (Sensei often tricks people by naming creatures like seahorses).
  • I spy...: Sensei would name the color of something and players have to name it.
  • Ninja run!: Sensei gets players to run left & right in the Ninja Hideout.
  • The Fire Game: While in the Fire Dojo, Sensei would shout 'FIRE!' and players must run to something with fire on it.
  • Ninjas VANISH: When Sensei shouts "Ninjas VANISH" he expects there to be no ninjas in sight.





  • "Sensei" means teacher in Japanese.
  • Polo Field helped create him[1].
  • There was originally no stamp given for meeting Sensei as of September 7, 2010. It was later released on November 16 2010.
  • According to Sensei's thoughts, he has a beta hat.
  • The "Ask Aunt Arctic" section in the Club Penguin Times has been temporarily changed to have have Sensei answer questions on multiple occasions.
  • Sensei has many Puffle friends, but has never adopted one of his own.
  • He says he learns much from puffles. He states that he learned that smiling is powerful from the puffles.
  • Sensei is Gray because he is very old.
  • Apparently he has shared cups of tea with Rockhopper according to issue #317 of the Club Penguin Times.
  • It was revealed in the Card-Jitsu Saga that Sensei did not create Card-Jitsu, he is just a master of it.
  • Sensei's Snow Suit is the only suit Sensei hasn't waddled wearing in-game yet.
  • Sensei's walking stick is actually Tusk's broken tusk.[2]


According to Sensei: "There was a prophecy that the truth would be revealed in the heat of summer. But one cannot be served knowledge like a bowl of hot noodles! So, my students, you must discover which of these is truth:

  • Tusk is not the only ninja from my past... I also have a brother!
  • There is a secret ninja clan of kunoichi
  • Some have found the way to practice forgotten styles like Shadow... and Cheese
  • Like fire and water, the ninjas and the EPF clash on many things
  • When we traveled to prehistoric times, some black belts trained caveguins. Now there are masters much older than me!"

One of those informations is true and the others are false.
