Chilly is a recurring enemy throughout the Kirby series. His 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. He commonly wears a cylindrical hat similar to a fez 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.

Locations[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

KDCChilly.png In Kirby's Dream Course, Chilly gives the Freeze Copy Ability. Like many other enemies in the game, he remains stationary, and does not attack at all. In this game, his design is based on his Kirby's Adventure artwork: This is the only game where he uses this design.

Kirby Super Star / Super Star Ultra[edit]

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, he either blows ice breath or releases ice storms, similar to Ice Kirby. However, he is also capable of using one exclusive move, where he drops icicles down on Kirby. When operating as a helper, Chilly possesses all of Ice Kirby's moves.

Details
Debut episode Dedede's Snow Job
Similar entities Ice Dragon
 This box: view  talk  edit 
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 after this point). 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.
