Mr. Frosty is a recurring Mid-Boss in the Kirby series. He appears in several games, starting with Kirby's Adventure and continuing up to Super Kirby Clash. In Kirby's Adventure and its remake, when inhaled, Kirby gets the Freeze ability. In subsequent games in the series, however, when inhaled, Kirby gets the Ice ability.

Appearance[edit]

Mr. Frosty is a white walrus-like creature, who wears black overalls with blue buttons (blue overalls with purple stripes in Kirby: Triple Deluxe) and icy blue shoes. He is occasionally recolored red or green.

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Mr. Frosty gets a deluxe form, known as Mr. Frosty DX. Now he is more of a vanilla color, with green feet. He has red overalls with yellow stripes. He now has a black mouth instead of a blue one.

Game appearances[edit]

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

In Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Mr. Frosty appears as one of the first Mid-Bosses. Here is where his familiar battle style was established; namely, his ability to kick block of ice around and swallow Kirby. He is first seen in Vegetable Valley - Stage 4.

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

Mr. Frosty appears in the lowermost board of Poppy Brothers' Land. Kirby can bump into him to earn 480 points and make his overalls slip for a moment. After being bumped 6 times, Mr. Frosty will change his pose, and should Kirby run into him again, the overalls-wearing walrus will grab him. From there, the player can time a release with the A button to make Mr. Frosty release Kirby in one of four directions.

Kirby's Dream Land 2[edit]

Acting exactly the same as in Kirby's Adventure (save for giving Ice instead of Freeze), the walrus reappears in Kirby's Dream Land 2.

Kirby's Block Ball[edit]

Mr. Frosty appears as both a regular enemy and as a Boss in Stage 6. As a regular enemy, he takes 4 hits to defeat and is worth 5000 points. As a boss, he has 12 hit points and attacks by rolling around, worth 50000 points when defeated.

Kirby's Toy Box[edit]

Mr. Frosty makes two notable appearances in this collection of mini-games, one being the Arrange Ball where nine of them highlight occupied holes and one large lies in the background, and the other in Pinball where he serves as one of the better targets on the board.

Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

Mr. Frosty is a Mid-Boss once again in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. He attacks the same way and is first fought at Float Islands. For the first time in the series, he is weak to fire-based attacks.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble[edit]

KTnT Mr Frosty.png Mr. Frosty makes a somewhat strange appearance in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble. Here, he is not a mid-boss, nor can he actually harm Kirby. Instead, he appears in Lvl 3-1 riding a surfboard and carrying a Red Star. When Kirby gets close, Mr. Frosty will try to ride away from Kirby, taking the Red Star with him. If Kirby collides directly with Mr. Frosty, he will be bounced away similar to a bumper. Kirby will need to grab the Red Star from Mr. Frosty before the walrus gets away with it.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

Mr. Flosty[sic], as he was named in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror.

Mr. Frosty is still a mid-boss in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, now named Mr. Flosty in English. He can throw ice blocks of two different sizes. He is identical to his appearance in Nightmare in Dream Land.

Locations[edit]

Kirby battles Mr. Flosty in Olive Ocean. His misspelled name is visible in the lower-right corner.

Mr. Flosty can be found in the following rooms:

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

Mr. Frosty is a mid-boss in Kirby: Squeak Squad, and has the same appearance and attacks as his other appearances.

Kirby Mass Attack[edit]

Mr. Frosty appears in the Kirby Mass Attack Sub-Game Kirby Quest as one of Kirby's opponents. He appears in Stage 26 alongside two Oohroo and in Stage 38 with two Fuufuu. He has 480 HP.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Mr. Frosty returns as a mid-boss and makes his first 3D appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Like the other bosses, he also has a DX form. He has a new attack, where he flies around the screen in a cyclone of snow. Despite this, he is arguably the easiest Mid-Boss to defeat in this game.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe Mr. Frosty can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Mr. Frosty is one of the opponents that must be faced in the Sub-Game Team Kirby Clash. Here, he is much larger and with greater stamina. He also can throw more than one ice block at a time, in an effort to hit multiple Kirbys.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe[edit]

Mr. Frosty returns in the expanded Sub-Game, appearing on three separate occasions to battle Team Kirby. New moves include elaborate acrobatics and quick icy spins.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Mr. Frosty was the first confirmed Mid Boss to appear in this game. He is somewhat larger than he has been in other main series titles, and has obtained new overalls which no longer have a hole in the rump (though it is still hard to miss). Curiously, unlike the other Mid-Bosses in this title, Mr. Frosty cannot be recruited directly as an ally, instead being replaced by Chilly if a Friend Heart is tossed at him once he's down.

Super Kirby Clash[edit]

Mr. Frosty in Super Kirby Clash.

Mr. Frosty returns as an enemy encounter in Super Kirby Clash, serving largely the same role he did in its predecessor. He is faced in four different Quests, and appears with King Doo in Team First Contact and with his similar cohort Mr. Floaty in Team Shimmy.

Attacks[edit]

The following are all of Mr. Frosty's attacks in Super Kirby Clash. Note that attack names are conjectural:

Mr. Frosty's attacks in Super Kirby Clash  
Attack Description Variants Notes
Charge Mr. Frosty starts running, and falls on his face after a while. He may stop and gobble up a Kirby he runs into. He may also perform a much quicker run which travels further, but this leaves him dazed afterward.
Triple Charge Mr. Frosty conjures a field of ice around himself and starts running. He turns around twice in fixed intervals to charge again each time before running into a wall at the end and becoming dazed.
Ice Toss Mr. Frosty pulls out blocks of ice, tosses them upward, then hits them forward as they fall back down. These blocks can be broken using an attack. In later quests, he may attempt to throw several at once.
Acrobatics Mr. Frosty pulls back, and then performs a series of quick and long jumps. He finishes with a heavy body slam which can flatten Kirbys underneath. In later quests, these jumps become quicker and more numerous.
Ice Tackle Mr. Frosty starts hovering as he spins and breathes a cone of frost. This move can either be done as Mr. Frosty weaves in and out of the background, or straight forward across the arena.
Ice Toss Tackle Mr. Frosty starts hovering toward the middle of the arena as he spins and breathes a cone of frost. While spinning, he throws out blocks of ice in semi-random trajectories.

In Kirby: Right Back at Ya![edit]

Mr. Frosty makes a tiny cameo appearance as a monster in the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! episode Cowardly Creature. He is shown briefly training as part of the "Young Monsters of the Future" program run by monster clowns, attempting to balance on a unicycle.

Trivia[edit]

Mr. Frosty as he was going to appear in Kirby's Air Ride on the Nintendo 64.
  • While Mr. Frosty is preparing ice to throw at Kirby, the player gets a good view of his rump, a characteristic of him that is shown in many Kirby games.
  • Mr. Frosty was going to appear in the canceled Nintendo 64 version of Kirby Air Ride. He was seen riding an orange Warp Star. At that time, it was unknown if he was going to be playable or not. Mr. Frosty did not appear as a playable character in the GameCube version of the game.
