Ice Containers are large blocks of ice that appear as items in Kirby Fighters 2 which contain three other items inside. In order to get the items inside, the fighters must repeatedly attack the container until it shatters, throwing the contents out when it does.
Ice Containers - being made of ice - are translucent, which allows the fighters to see which items are inside before it is broken. They can withstand substantial punishment, taking up to 120 points of damage to destroy (reduced damage is taken from items like Timed Dynamite explosions). As the Ice Container takes damage, it begins to crack before finally shattering, releasing the three items it contains.
The Ice Container can hold any other item except for the following:

In Story Mode: The Destined Rivals
In Kirby Fighters 2's Story Mode: The Destined Rivals, one of the special conditions which can occur in regular stages is referred to as an "Ice Container Stage".

Additionally, there is a story item called the Ice Container Breaking Sticker, which allows Kirby and his buddy to break open Ice Containers three times faster than usual.
