Puffle Handbook Description
The legendary gold puffles live near gold deposits in the earth’s crust. They are known to dig up rare golden items.
Back in medieval times, Gold Puffles were studied by the medieval witch Garianna, who owned one of these elusive beasts during her life, and wrote in the aforementioned sheets of paper instructions about how to find and take care of one. Because of her writings, Puffle Handler discovered that the seeds of the Golden O' Berries could be related to the puffles in some way.
One of the main possible reasons for the puffle's mythic status is their habitat, gold deposits way under the Earth's crust, that remained unknown until the November 2013 Tremors, which damaged the old Cave Mine, that collapsed. After the debris were cleared, penguins found book pages, spread the word about the new puffle and reopened the Cave Mine during the Quest for the Gold Puffle, that enabled penguins to adopt this long-rumored creatures.
Shortly after the definitive revelation of the Gold Puffles, Operation: Puffle was launched and the they could use their treasure-attracting powers to help penguins during Puffle Chase and help them recover unusual golden items.
Rumors about the Gold Puffle
Legend of the Gold Puffle
Quest for the Gold Puffle
In the Stage play Quest for the Golden Puffle, the Gold Puffle is a statue made of chocolate. Alaska and Yukon were trying to find it, but they were hunted by Boris and King Ra-Ra. After that, they discover the Gold Puffle is fake and just a chocolate puffle, but Alaska didn't resist to hunt rare puffles.
The Gold Puffle is an important piece of the Mission Waddle Squad. The plan was to prepare a trap on Dance Club and the Electromagnet 3000 on Clothes Shop. Herbert tries to capture the Fake Gold Puffle and the PSA Catch him, but Rookie gives his phone to Herbert. Herbert escapes with Rookie's Phone. As revealed by Gary in Waddle Squad, this statue was in fact buried in the Mine, were it was discovered by workers working there. This may have to do with the real Gold Puffle discovery in the same place years later.
Medieval Party 2013
Garianna was the only penguin to have owned a Gold Puffle. It appears on the last page of her Potion book. She might have owned it, which means they might have lived during those times. Also, the secret potion ingredient was a Golden O-Berry. A Gold Puffle statue was seen in the Wizard Library.
Poking at the Gold Puffle mystery, in the Coffee Shop during the 8th Anniversary Party a slab of gold with a puffle etched into it could be seen on display, as the Coffee Shop was temporarily changed into a museum of Club Penguin History.
On October 30, 2013, Polo Field made a post on the What's New Blog, featuring a mysterious puffle picture with a question mark. It could be this Puffle or something related to the upcoming Operation: Puffle.
On November 1, the membership page was updated with a picture of the Gold Puffle, saying that they could dig for super rare treasures via Puffle Digging. The Gold Puffle quest began on November 14, 2013.
Pre-Discovery Cameo Appearances

- In the Magic Potion book on the last page.
- Spike Hike said on his Twitter account that there were many rumors about the legend of "El puffle dorado", translating to 'The Gold Puffle'. Also he said that only time would tell.
- If you walk the Gold Puffle, you can earn super rare items (via puffle digging).
- They can also dig up the golden-colored versions of items.
- This is the second puffle to be released in 2013, with the first one being the Rainbow Puffle.
- They live in the Gold Mine, and you can only adopt them there, much like the Cloud Forest is the only place to get a Rainbow Puffle.
- You must dig Golden Nuggets to find them.
- It is the second rumored mythical puffle for many years to actually be released with the first being the Rainbow Puffle.
- Alongside the Rainbow Puffle, it was rumored for many years, though their existence was never confirmed nor disproved, but in 2013, both rumors of existence of these puffles were confirmed.
- The Gold Puffle has golden-coloured eyes, making it the only puffle with non-white eyes and black pupils (if the statue does not count).
- The Gold Puffle is the first puffle since 2007 to be released in November. Ironically, that puffle was the Yellow Puffle.
- Unlike the Rainbow Puffle it does not have a quest section when you press "Pets" on the map.
- They apparently have odd behaviors compared to other puffles, as PH says.
- The Puffle Handbook states that they are Hide-and-Seek champions.
- Along with the Rainbow Puffle, when you adopt a Gold Puffle it will not show the puffle on the adopt a puffle postcard.
- In the wild, they are observed being distracted by golden objects.
- Their favorite food are chocolate coins, which is ironic in two ways.
- The first reason is that Gold Puffles are experts at Puffle Digging and the most commonly obtainable thing there is, is coins.
- The second reason is that the script in the Quest for the Golden Puffle play states that the Gold Puffle Alaska and Yukon found was really a chocolate puffle covered in golden foil.
- It's also possible that it was that due to the puffle being released close to the Jewish holiday of hanukka, which has chocolate coins covered in foil as one of its more known foods.
- Gold Puffles can play Puffle Launch, however, they seem to be red puffles while playing. They also become White Puffles while playing Pufflescape.
- The option of allowing the Golden Puffle to play during Puffle Chase makes it the first game that the puffle is allowed to play (even if it's only a party game).
- They can not be unlocked like most of the puffles can. It shares this trait with the Rainbow Puffle.
- This puffle is the only puffle to not have a puffle costume.
