* [[HumanoidAbomination The Others]] from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' ''are'' the "Ice" of the title. They're associated with the perpetually frozen far north and {{Necromancy}} in general, appear with the worst weather Winter can bring and even seem to be made of frozen liquid, let alone come equiping armour and weaponary that apparently is made of reinforced ice and are also associated with "ice spiders" in legends. Whatever those are.
** In the short novel, ''Literature/TheIceDragon'', which provided some inspiration for ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the main character, Adara, is a young girl who was born during the coldest winter in living memory, and somehow winter had left its mark upon her. Many readers have noted that she bears a resemblance to the Others. Though she does not have any active powers, she has a strong affinity for the cold and can stay outside during winter without it even bothering her. Her skin is also pale and cold to the touch, on top of having a fittingly icy personality brought about by her usual condition. On top of all this, she is capable of riding the titular ice dragon, which has plenty of icy powers of its own.

* Ice-minus bacteria, such as ''Pseudomonas syringae'', possess the ability to freeze water even at warm temperatures. Scientists believe their ice nucleating proteins are an integral part of ice crystal formation in clouds.

** Rukia Zanpakutou (''Sode no Shirayuki,'' translation: Sleeved White Snow) freezes everything it touches, enabling it to produce ice pillars avalanches, and [[ice-quakes, or turn enemies to solid ice and flash freeze everything in its radius. The power first freezes herself, reducing her body temperature to Absolute Zero, thus preventing her body from absorbing toxic substances. In Bankai, she becomes a pure white, icy statue clad in white robes. If she fights at freezing temperatures for too long, or raises her body temperature back to normal too quickly, her body will begin to fracture and shatter.

* Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} also fits into this trope since his acquisition of an AntientArtifact which; if myth can be believed, not only holds power over the seven seas of the entire world but all the elements connected with said ocean lord.

** Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', now pictured above. Unlike other examples, though, his ice-based abilities are not actually powers per se, but ice-based weapons.

** Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', now pictured above. Unlike other examples, though, his ice-based abilities are not actually powers per se, but ice-based weapons. However, thanks to an unfortunate accident, he can't survive temperatures above freezing, making him a ''literal'' ice person.
