The Terraforming Arctic Refrigeration Dispersing Ice Spreader, or T.A.R.D.I.S. for short, is a doomsday machine created by the Killer Gentoo Penguins (KGP) with the intent to change Gielinor into a frost world. It was originally located in the secret base on the Iceberg, but after a cool-ant leakage, the crew were forced to make an emergency launch and landing near Pollnivneach in the Kharidian Desert.

An agent of the Polar Bears for Justice (PBJ), a rival organisation of the KGP, was despatched to investigate the crashed ship, where several penguins, including Emperor Wing, Elon, Hugh and his assistants Rose and Lara, and several henchmen, were wandering around. One of the penguins, Gordon, revealed himself to be a PBJ agent, and asked his fellow agent to infiltrate the base on the Iceberg and use his de-lore-ing device to travel back to before the T.A.R.D.I.S. launched and sabotage it. They managed to do so and met up with Gordon in the past, working together to subtly sabotage the machine. Though they were unable to prevent the cool-ant leak and subsequent launch and ironically proved to be consequential in the T.A.R.D.I.S. being prepared for launch, they were able to weaken the machine so that its effects only extended temporarily to the crash site.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Both its name and appearance are a reference to the TARDIS, a time machine from the British show Doctor Who.
  • The antenna on top, however, may be a reference to the phone booth time machine from the movie Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, which has received comparisons to Doctor Who given the similar time travel elements and time machine appearances.
