“'No, my name isn't "Classified", my name IS classified because I am the leader of this strike team.'
―Classified to Skipper[src]

"Classified" is one of the main characters of Penguins of Madagascar. He is the leader of the Arctic high-tech zoological organization "North Wind". He is an Eurasian wolf.


Physical Appearance

"Classified" is a very strong slender wolf with wide cheeks and short legs. He also has a long torso, and teal-blue eyes. His pelt color is gray, with a white underbelly and four white socks. "Classified" has very wide eyebrows, and always wears a utility belt around his lower stomach.


"Classified" has a very serious attitude, often irritated by the Penguin's actions. He doesn't like to be interrupted, and takes pleasure in stealing the spotlight. As the movie progresses, "classified" warms up to the Penguins, and eventually asks forgiveness over how he misjudged them.


Penguins of Madagascar

"Classified" first appears in Venice along with his team to save the penguins from a group of octopuses. He swings down from the North Wind plane and tells the penguins to remain calm and that they are now under the protection of the North Wind. On the way to their headquarters, "classified" is unimpressed by the penguins on first impression and easily annoyed by them, especially Skipper.

At their headquarters, "classified" explains on how they protect helpless animals like penguins around the world with the penguins barely listening and paying attention. He demands them to give him information that they know about there abduction by Dr. Octavius Brine. "Classified" is clearly impressed and surprised learning that the penguins stole the Medusa Serum, but when Dave appears on screen, "classified" takes all the credit without acknowledging the penguins at all. Learning Dave's plans, "classified" doesn't want any of the penguins interfering, shipping them to a safe house located in Madagascar.
