* In ''VideoGame/LEGOStarWars'', a game that plays like ''Franchise/StarWars'' set in a cartoony platform game world made out of {{Lego}} bricks, Hoth is one of these, complete with a lot of sliding around on one's bum. ''Star Wars'' games were, at one time, a massively popular genre unto themselves- and ''every single one'' boasted a Hoth level, mostly because it constituted the only major ground battle of the films not prosecuted by teddy bears, bar Geonosis. See BestLevelEver for details. This became SO infamous that when the growing profusion of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII shooters became tiresomely cliched, PennyArcade's declaration that "[[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/5/23/ Omaha Beach is the new Hoth]]" was ''scathing.''

* Winter temperatures in Stockholm, Sweden are often above 0°C during the day and below 0°C during the night. Any rain and snow (which is ''very'' common there) turns into slush that freezes overnight, resulting in this kind of conditions. You have to walk like a penguin to not slip and fall.

** ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack'' adds Dedede Resort Stages 8 and 9, ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'' gives us the last few stages of Old Odyssey, and of course the ice cream level in Overload Ocean in ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot''.
** So far, ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand'', ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'', and ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheRainbowCurse'' are the only Kirby games that do not provide an ice world or ice level.

* A few puzzles in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' take place in a slippery, icy cavern. What's odd is that the low-gravity puzzles work the same way.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' has the Cave of Fenrir located under the town of Friezkil, where Vorpal sword can be found. Alas, ice isn't slippy, but enemies do have fire weakness.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' (Playstation version) plays this trope to a logical extreme in one level. You have to buy the fur cape accessory in order to travel across a bitter cold pathway that will drop your HP horrendously fast without the aforementioned fur capes.

** Every ice-type gym is this. Pryce in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' and remakes, Candice in ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' and Brycen in ''PokemonBlackAndWhite''. Wulfric in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' finally breaks the pattern.

* The Valley of Repose in ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}} 2'', though besides the snow the only other wintery elements are a few Christmas-themed treasures in the Frontier Cavern. ''Pikmin 3'' has the Distant Tundra.

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' has the Snow Kingdom which is also home to a village where the residents love racing. Goombas have sure footing even on the ice which carries over if Mario captures them.

*** The Phendrana Drifts level of ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' qualifies. This level subverts most of the traditional ice-level conventions, with the exception of heat weapons as a great ally and the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome very soothing]] ThemeTune (well, the first section of Phendrana).

** World 6-3 ([[GimmickLevel single level, naturally]]) in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'' and both 7-3 and C-3 in ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels The Lost Levels]]''. Neither have noticeable ice tropes, since they're merely done with recoloring several things white and gray. In ''VideoGame/NESRemix'', World 4-1 was [[GameMod given the slippy-slidey effect (and look)]] in one of the challenges.

** ''VideoGame/HotelMario'' has Larry's Chillton Hotel, which combines this with BlackoutBasement -- only the floor you're currently in is illuminated, and you'd never know what's going on in the other floors until you reach it.



** In ''VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach'', World 6 (Gleam Glacier) fits this trope.

* ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard'', true to its season-themed strata, boasts this for its winter floors. The highest floor in the strata adds to it by making the ice too thin to cross except at night, when the temperature drops. You are also given the chance to take a nice rest on one of the floors. [[spoiler:Bad idea. The very first paragraph of this trope description should suggest why.]]
