Rockn is a dark blue rocket with two blue, metal cylinders for a body. It has white eyes with black pupils, a yellow nose, four propellers between the cylinders and four more on its bottom. Unlike Pedo, it lives on land.
Rockn makes its only appearance in this game. It appears to be a rocket; it moves forward, exploding if it hits anything. They appear to be shot out of cannons, as they continually reappear, even when defeated. Rockn gives the Bomb ability when inhaled. Rockns make their first appearance in Stage 4 of Shiver Star.
Rockn comes from the word "rocket."
Its Japanese name, ロックン (Rokkun), also comes from the word "rocket," ロケット (roketto), but has the same suffix as the Japanese names of Pedo (ギョックン Gyokkun) and Skud (ミックン Mikkun), which are also based on missiles.
- Pedo is near identical to Rockn. The only differences between them are that Pedo is aqua green while Rockn is blue, and that Rockn has eight silver propellers. Pedo has only four.
