Chilly is a recurring enemy throughout the Kirby series. Its basic appearance is that of a snowman, consisting of two stacked spheres, with the bottom sphere serving as the body, and the upper as the head. It commonly wears a bucket atop its head, and a collar, with a bell, around its neck. It also has two black eyes with thick eyebrows. Chillys themselves have never possessed an incredibly major role in any Kirby game, commonly appearing as a basic enemy, and most notably giving Kirby the Ice or Freeze Copy Ability. They are usually, if not always, found in very cold or snowy areas.

Game appearances

Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

KNiD E Chilly.png

Chilly's debut was in Kirby's Adventure, as a common enemy, giving the Freeze Ability, and reappears in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land more-or-less unchanged. Just like the Freeze ability, Chilly attacks by creating a frozen barricade around itself, making it more difficult for Kirby to approach the snowman. Once Chilly appears, it will not attempt to move from its original position, only doing so if hit non-lethally.


Chilly's first appearance is not until Butter Building, and is a relatively uncommon foe throughout the rest of the game. Chilly can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby's Pinball Land

In Kirby's Pinball Land, a Chilly appears on the bottom level of the Poppy Brothers' Land stage. Attacking this Chilly eight consecutive times will defeat him and make a Warp Star appear, which can be used to return to the stage select area.

Kirby's Dream Course

In Kirby's Dream Course, Chillys give the Freeze Copy Ability. Like many other enemies in the game, they remain stationary, and do not attack at all.

Kirby Super Star and Super Star Ultra

In Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra, Chilly is the Helper for the Ice ability, where he can perform all the moves Ice Kirby can. As an enemy, they either blow ice breath or do ice storms, similar to Ice Kirby. However, they are also capable of using one exclusive move, where they drop icicles down on Kirby. In these games, they aren't stationary when used as helper.

Kirby Air Ride

In Kirby Air Ride, Chilly can be found skating on the race courses, mainly on Frozen Hillside. Running into them will freeze the racer in an ice cube for about one second. Kirby can copy the Freeze Ability from them here.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Chilly returns in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, mostly in the level White Wafers, a fittingly snowy place, though they first appear in Onion Ocean. They attack simply by standing in one spot and using their Ice Storm. They also occasionally move back and forth, but don't tread very far from where they started.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Chilly appears briefly in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, appearing in only a few places. It is unchanged from its appearance in Return to Dream Land.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Chilly returns in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It appears to be once again unchanged, and provides the Ice ability once again.

Kirby Star Allies

Along with appearing as a common enemy, Chilly also is recruitable as a Helper. It can be controlled by the CPU or another player, and can help provide a Blizzard augment to other abilities.

When Chilly is recruited, its coloration changes based off its position in the team, and it also gains a hat similar to Kirby's Ice ability hat.

In the anime

King Dedede KSS artwork.png This article or section is a stub. You can help WiKirby by expanding it.

Chilly appears in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! as a monster ordered by King Dedede to attack Kirby. It attempts to do this covertly, pretending to be Kirby's friend at first, but trying on several occasions to kill him. After several failed attempts, Chilly comes to pity Kirby, who remains none-the-wiser, and decides to befriend the pink puffball instead.

However, as winter approaches its end, Chilly starts to melt, having stayed around too long. Kirby and friends see Chilly off by setting him off to sea in an ice box to give him a chance at surviving the year.
