Its face

Snowmen (スノーマン Sunōman) are Underworld enemies that debuted in the original Kid Icarus.

Physical Appearance

In the original Kid Icarus, the Snowman appears as a tall, humanoid creature made of ice blocks akin to an igloo. It has pink eyes, a large nose, and a wide mouth.

In Of Myths and Monsters, it appears as a short, round creature with stocky limbs and a frowning face.

In Uprising, the Snowman reverts to its appearance from the original Kid Icarus with some minor differences—its eyes are now orange with purple lining them, and the purple interior of its torso becomes exposed when it attacks.


Kid Icarus

The Abominable Snowman of Angel Land. Its body is made of ice and likes cold places. A proud creature, it hurls ice to protect its territory.

— Its Game Manual Description

Found in the Overworld stage, Snowmen will trudge along and throw snowball projectiles at nearby opponents. This is their only means of attacking other than damaging foes on contact.

Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters

Wanders around the floor and attacks Pit when it finds him.

— Its Game Manual Description

Known as Gruffs, they behave similarly to how they did in the original Kid Icarus.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

Appearing exclusively in Land Battles, the Snowman slowly prowls the battlefield, inflicting damage on anyone it stomps into. Every few moments, it will ready itself by exposing its purple innards, then release a cold wind that can potentially freeze its opponents. Its weak point is its face.

Captain N: The Game Master

A Snowman appears in the episode "Mr. & Mrs. Mother Brain," where it throws an ice shard at Kid Icarus but misses, to which Kid Icarus destroys it shortly after.

Idol Description


A mean, hulking giant made of ice, this is one Snowman who definitely isn't a jolly, happy soul. A territorial beast, it blasts all who come near with its frozen breath.



  • The Snowman may be based on the Abominable Snowman, a creature of Nepal folklore.
  • Its Idol description makes reference to the popular Christmas song Frosty the Snowman, whose lyrics describe the titular character as a "jolly, happy soul."
