The game would likely be largely forgotten without the huge boost of publicity generated when Nana and Popo were {{unexpected| character}} inclusions in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series, starting with the second game. Uniquely, while the two characters act as a team, generally the player is only able to control one at a time while the AI copies his movements. One can be defeated, but not the other, but a single Ice Climber is at a severe handicap.

Other media to reference Ice Climber include the ''VideoGame/{{WarioWare}}'' series (where it is the basis of several micro-games) and later iterations of the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series (where Kirby's ice power-up gives him a parka exactly the same as Popo's). They also tend to appear in fan-works related to ''Smash'' such as ''ThereWillBeBrawl''.

Players control characters dressed in stereotypical eskimo gear: player one is the blue-clad Popo, while player two is the pink-clad Nana. The general goal of each level is to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin climb up several layers of ice to reach the top of a mountain]]. Each player carries a wooden mallet which they use to hit enemies, club openings in the levels, and collect power-ups. [[FundamentallyFunnyFruit Like eggplants]]... Just roll with it.

* FundamentallyFunnyFruit: Eggplants are the first kind of vegetable you can find in the bonus round, and they represent the franchise as its universe's logo in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''

Added DiffLines:

* RatchetScrolling: Don't expect to descend much, as you'll want to steer clear of the [[BottomlessPit lower boundary]] whenever possible. Polar Bears have the ability to force the screen to scroll up no matter where you are so you'll have to hurry whenever one's around.

DeathThrows: Nana and Popo's death animations involve them getting thrown offscreen.

* HitboxDissonance: When players are jumping.
** To explain. In different platformers, you have to be right on top of a platform when you're trying to land on it. In this game, to get to higher levels, you typically have to slightly overlap a higher platform as you're jumping up in order to land on it.
