Ice is in great abundance for your [[FrictionlessIce slipping and sliding]] pleasure, and expect SuperDrowningSkills if you fall in the water. Even if your character can normally swim, he usually finds himself turned into an ice cube if he falls into the water of an Ice World. Expect an occasional blizzard to blow you off ledges and screw up your jumps.

* Most moons of the outer planets of the UsefulNotes/TheSolarSystem are mainly composed of (water) ice, with it at those temperatures being rock-soli thus when it melts being the outer Solar System equivalent of lava. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tethys_(moon) Tethys]], in UsefulNotes/Saturn, takes this UpToEleven having been described as basically huge frozen water drop, with just a very small amount of rocks and little more.

* ''VideoGame/SuperDodgeball'' takes the player to a stereotypical version of Iceland, whose court is of course very slippery, making it difficult to stay in-bounds and increasing the chances you'll botch a running super shot: If you step out of bounds while holding the ball, you automatically drop it. The stage based on Kenya [[InvertedTrope inverts]] the trope, setting the action on an earthen court where it's difficult to get up to speed.

** The Chozo laboratory found in Area 7 of ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'', where you fight the three Omega Metroids, is filled with ice. It's implied that the Chozo chose this location for creating the Metroids due to their cold-based weaknesses. Ironically, the equivalent area in the original ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'' was a LethalLavaLand with design elements strongly resembling Norfair.

* The ''Taz-Mania'' video game for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis has an ice level with slippery platforms, fish as food power-ups, and [[Main/TheCameo a cameo]] by ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' character, Playboy Penguin. Taz must jump from platform to platform in order to avoid falling in the icy water, which freezes him. Thankfully, the ice is easy to break through, and only takes away a little bit of his health.
** The UsefulNotes/GameGear version has Taz ride a tree branch like a snowboard while wearing a Santa hat on a snowy mountain, followed by a Bushrat-powered fan pushing him across icy platforms. At the end of the ice platform stage, Taz must battle [[Main/AndCallHimGeorge Hugo the Abominable Snowman]].

Pete later holds Huey, Dewey, and Louie for ransom in exchange for the latter, prompting Donald to chase after him to get it back.

** Dante's Freezer in ''[[ContinuityReboot The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning]]'' is, as Ignitus describes it, "a desolate arctic expanse that's littered with the machinery of war... soldiers and weapons frozen forever in the posture of destruction." [[OlderThanTheyThink Ironically justified]] considering that in ''[[Literature/DivineComedy Dante's Inferno]]'', there actually ''is'' a certain circle of hell (Treachery) that's [[SnowMeansDeath completely frozen over]].

** Whenever you make it winter or come across a perpetual winter area in ''Oracle of Seasons''. Winter's even the first season power you get. There's also the upper floor of [[HailfirePeaks Sword & Shield Maze]], with the obligatory sliding block puzzle and a platforming section with single-block ice platforms and [[LedgeBats ledge bats]].

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has several icy areas. The most prominent is the whole Mount Hebra/Tabantha Frontier region in the northwest, which requires you to wear cold-resistant clothes so you can meet up with Teba to board Divine Beast Vah Medoh. Other cold areas include the Gerudo Highlands, Mount Hylia on the Great Plateau (the place where you will first learn about preparing for extreme temperatures), and Mount Lanayru.
