* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: One of the implications of how the other penguins behave around Rico is reminiscent of that of a child with a mental disorder - when he loses control they seem just as concerned that he might hurt himself as others. Significantly, in "Kaboom And Kabust", Skipper's lines describe serious concern for Rico's safety, with the penguins all implying that he's not fully responsible for his own actions, while Julien's behaviour in this episode is ''highly'' manipulative, taking advantage of Rico for his own personal amusement. Julien even describes himself as Rico's enabler at one point. An enabler is a person who encourages or enables negative or self-destructive behaviour in another.

* HoYayShipping: The show has its own HoYay page as it is, but the level of subtext between Kowalski and Rico is far and away the most common pairing.
* JerkassWoobie: One episode features a poison dart frog with such potent venom that the merest touch renders one temporarily paralytic and with a comical rash; he uses this power to keep all the other animals at his pettiest whim. Private eventually knocks up a protective suit that will allow him to give the slimy little chap a nice big hug. Barry contemplates if he's really a jerk, but decides that yes, he likes hugs more.

** King Julien, hands down. Not only do fans pair him up with Mort and Maurice, but every single penguin too. The show [[ShipTease provides plenty of examples]] and has even paired him with Marlene and [[HoYay Rico]] at various times. It's only a matter of time before they pair him with [[ScrewYourself himself]].
** As the closest thing the show has to a female lead, Marlene gets a lot of play as this, though pairing her off with Skipper is by far and away the most popular.

* ShipTease: Despite how much HoYay Rico gets, Rico still gets some tease with Marlene, with the suggestion that Marlene actually finds his wild behaviour strangely fun at times (such as in "Jungle Law" when he uses her as a boomerang).

Since Rico is the only Penguin who doesn't have a canon living girlfriend, this has resulted in a small fandom for those who want to try something new.

* DracoInLeatherPants: King Julien. While certainly one of the funniest characters in the show, he's also an utter [[JerkAss Jerkass]] who constantly abuses [[OnlySaneMan Maurice]] and [[ButtMonkey Mort]] while ruining everyone else's lives at the drop of a hat for his own [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish gain or momentary satisfaction]]. Despite this see LauncherOfAThousandShips below...

** Fans pair up Skipper and Marlene based on the fact that the two spend so much time together. [[http://www.fanfiction.net/cartoon/Penguins_of_Madagascar/3/0/1/1/0/27544/27545/0/0/1/ There are 80+ fanfics]] about this couple alone.
** Just about anyone can be shipped to anyone else; as mentioned above, King Julien gets shipped with just about everyone, and the penguins with each other. Of course, the healthy doses of HoYay and ShipTease help.

* HoYayShipping: And ''how.'' There's an awful lot of subtext between Kowalski and Rico, and they're just the most obvious...
* JerkassWoobie: One episode features a poison dart frog with such potent venom that the merest touch renders one temporarily paralytic and with a comical rash; he uses this power to keep all the other animals at his pettiest whim. Private eventually realizes the real root of the problem-a FreudianExcuse. So he knocks up a protective suit that will allow him to give the slimy little chap a hug. Nearly subverted, until it's pointed out that the line between "hug" and "Let's see how far your eyeballs will fly" is a thin one indeed.

** All the penguins are insane, but Rico is especially popular among Shippers, despite being the lowest intellectually, by far the most violent, and psychotic even by Skipper's standards.

* HilariousInHindsight: Possibly one of '''''the''''' most triumphant examples in WesternAnimation; in "Hello Dollface", Private is berated for his love of Lunacorn toys, because [[PeripheryDemographic it's meant to be a girl's toy]][[note]] Note that this is never actually stated. The actual problem is that the Lunacorns are ''too soft'' for Skipper's taste; the words girl toys were never used[[note/]]. When did this episode air? ''October 9, 2010''.

* GeniusBonus: In ''Cute-astrophe'' Skipper says he can "smell an anectode from 1.6 klicks away". One klick equals one kilometer. One mile is 1.6 kilometers. Even in klicks Skipper hates the metric system.
