Chilly is a reoccurring enemy throughout the Kirby series. His basic appearance is that of a two-segmented snowman, with the bottom segment serving as the body, and the upper as the head. He commonly wears a cylindrical bucket atop his head, and a collar with a bell around his neck. He also has two black eyes with thick eyebrows. Chilly himself has never possessed an incredibly major role in any Kirby game, commonly appearing as a basic enemy or as a helper, and most notably giving Kirby the Ice or Freeze Copy Ability. He is usually, if not always, found in very cold or snowy areas.

Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

Freeze Kirby mimicking a Chilly in Kirby's Adventure.

KA Chilly sprite.png KNiDL Chilly sprite.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 himself, making it more difficult for Kirby to approach the snowman. Once Chilly appears, he will not attempt to move from his 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:

— Guest Star Chilly Chill Winds Pause Screen description in Kirby Star Allies

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

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

In addition to the standard method, Chilly can be recruited by throwing a Friend Heart at a defeated Mr. Frosty, as each Copy Ability is limited to a single representative Friend.

Chilly, you're made out of snow, right...but you're alive?
— Tuff, in Dedede's Snow Job

Chilly appears in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! as a monster created by Ice Dragon and ordered by King Dedede to assassinate Kirby. He attempts to do this covertly, pretending to be Kirby's friend while trying to do him in. After many failed attempts - one of which ends up with Kirby having to save him from melting in a pool - Chilly comes to pity the pink puffball, who remains none-the-wiser, and runs back to Ice Dragon instead. Because he did not kill Kirby, King Dedede orders Ice Dragon to stomp the snowman, but Kirby saves him in the nick of time, then they battle the Ice Dragon and save Cappy Town from freezing up. However, as the weather returns to normal, Chilly starts to melt away. Kirby tries in vain to save Chilly, but the poor snowman ends up melting on an iceberg out in the sea.

Chilly is portrayed fairly faithfully to his video game incarnation, but his cap is notably green in color rather than the usual blue (as was standard in the games at the time, though green-hat Chilly would become normal in games onwards from Kirby's Return to Dream Land). He cannot conjure a freezing aura around himself, but he is able to conjure snowballs from his hands. He is incapable of normal speech, able to only repeat his name.

In the Kirby novel series[edit]

This section is incomplete. You can help WiKirby by expanding it.
Needs more novel appearances

In the Kirby novel series, Chilly is one of the residents of Dream Land, first appearing in Kirby Star Allies: The Great Friend Adventure!.

In Kirby: Uproar at the Kirby Café?!, Bandana Waddle Dee tries to recruit Chilly for the staff of the Dedede Café, since he wants his help to create ice cream and shaved ice. Chilly refuses, saying he looks forward to the Kirby Café and not the Dedede Café. Waddle Dee offers him desserts made by him and the Waddle Dees, causing Chilly to change his mind and agree help. Later, at the second round of the cooking competition, Chilly is unsure of Waddle Dee's idea for the drink, since he thinks the au lait will be too sweet for Meta Knight's taste. However, Waddle Dee assures that it will help him to get rid of his fatigue. When they win the second round, Chilly and the other Dedede Café staff celebrate.
