Mr. Chilly

Mr. Chilly is an aquatic companion pet obtained through a promotional event.


Mr. Chilly was mailed by Breanni to players who merged a WoW account to a account. He was intended as a "thank you" from Blizzard for sticking through the process of switching over.[1] The first Unhatched Mr. Chilly items were mailed on Oct. 15, 2009[2], three days after Blizzard announced that all WoW accounts would need to be converted to accounts on Nov. 11, 2009.

Letter sent with the item:

Chilly the Penguin


Please give a warm welcome to your new cool penguin pal!

I'm so happy you could give this sassy little Spheniscidae a home.

Beware the Chilly!

  • For some reason—probably an error in the skin—Mr. Chilly's eyes glow in the dark.
  • Despite Blizzard's original intention to remove Mr. Chilly as a reward,[3] he is still given when merging a WoW account. However, since unmerged WoW accounts can no longer be created, this requires the player to have one that hasn't been logged into since before November 11, 2009, when the merge was made mandatory.
  • His pet journal entry may be a reference to Obi-Wan Kenobi's description of "an elegant weapon, for a more civilized age."
