%% Note on caption: "Ice to see you" is from The Simpsons, which is admittedly a different medium than Batman, but it is funnier than "Chill", and makes the same pun on ice/nice as the page title.

->''"[[GreenThumb Nature]]? [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]? Bah! Both are chaotic and difficult to control. Ice is structured, latticed, light as a feather, massive as a glacier. In ice, there is power!"''
-->-- '''Heidar, Rimewind master''', [[http://www.magiccards.info/10e/en/84.html Flashfreeze]], ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''

The power to control ice, and create cold and frost at will. May be used as a trinity with [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] and [[ShockAndAwe Electricity]], hence FireIceLightning. Likely to be used as a contrast to fire -- if the hero prefers fire, his [[TheRival rival]], Archenemy or [[TheLancer Lancer]] will use ice. Sometimes the domain of evil or undead entities as EvilIsDeathlyCold. Goes hand in hand with MakingASplash, and may be involved with [[BlowYouAway wind powers]] via cold air and snowstorms. In ElementalRockPaperScissors with fire, one will usually defeat the other, though which one varies. Ice is unlikely to be any stronger or weaker than other elements though for CompetitiveBalance, and thus HarmlessFreezing will be invoked. If you want to resort to this to kill an otherwise invulnerable entity, you're planning to KillItWithIce.

May be used by BigfootSasquatchAndYeti, {{Snowlems}}, a WinterRoyalLady or even a WomanInWhite. People with these powers may also have AnIceSuit and a FreezeRay, or be subject to ElementalBaggage. See also HumanPopsicle.

Also called "Cryokinesis." A common and unfortunate side effect of ice powers is an ice [[PungeonMaster use of vocabulary]].

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Esdese of AkameGaKiru is one of the single most powerful human beings on earth by pure strength alone. Add to this a special weapon called a Teigu contained in her body that gives her complete control of ice and the ability to freeze anything and everything, including ''[[spoiler: time and space]]'', makes her an enemy that requires an ''entire'' army just to pose a threat to. She is also a complete and total sadist, who delights in causing terrible pain and suffering to anyone and anything.
* ''Manga/OnePiece''
** Kuzan, a.k.a. [[spoiler:former]] Marine Admiral Aokiji, possesses the power of the Hie Hie no Mi (Chilly-Chilly Fruit, or Ice-Ice Fruit). Aokiji's Devil fruit allows him to create, control, and transform into ice. His powers are such that he can freeze a chunk of ocean (complete with sea monster) with seemingly little effort and with a guarantee that it'll last one week. He's also all-but-immune to physical attacks as, while they can shatter his icy body, he can immediately reform it.
** [[spoiler:Brook has managed to do this by channeling his soul through his sword, infusing the blade with the [[GhostlyChill very cold of the underworld itself]].]]
** One of the most recent villains, a harpy named Monet, has powers from the Yuki Yuki no Mi (Snow-Snow Fruit).
* ''CodeBreaker'': Yukihina's most common application of his power, though he seems to be able to control water in any form.
* In NurarihyonNoMago we have the hero's [[BodyguardCrush bodyguard]] Tsurara, her mother Setsura and Reira from Toono. They are ice {{youkai}} known as Yuki-Onna("Snow Woman").
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''
** The [[PureMagicBeing Unison Device]] Reinforce Zwei specializes in this element, in contrast to her rival, the [[PlayingWithFire fire-using]] Agito.
** Chrono after he acquires Durandal, a [[MagicWand Storage Device]] optimized for ice magic.
** In the ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaInnocent'' AlternateUniverse, Suzuka's game avatar is shown to have an affinity for ice magic.
* Touya of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is a demon ninja with mastery over ice. When he went under [[OldMaster Genkai]] for some TrainingFromHell, he became powerful enough to freeze a battlefield. Seiryuu, one of the [[TheFourGods Four Saint Beasts]] (and also, ironically, TheDragon to BigBad Suzaku), also had ice powers, but he was a drop in the bucket compared to Touya. There's also Yukina, actually an ice maiden.
* Yukino Houjou of ''GateKeepers'', the [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld immortal]] and ridiculously powerful user of the Gate of Ice and Snow.
* Two in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Toshiro Hitsugaya (''Hyourinmaru,'' translation: Ice Ring) and Rukia Kuchiki (''Sode no Shirayuki,'' translation: Sleeved White Snow). If the [[MeaningfulName name of her Zanpakuto is indeed meaningful]], the lieutenant of the 4th Squad, Isane Kotetsu, may be like this too (her Zanpakutou is ''Itegumo,'' translation: Frozen Cloud).
* Cygnus Hyoga and Kraken Isaac from ''SaintSeiya'', and so is their teacher, Aquarius Camus (also, the Crystal Saint in the anime).
** Extra fun: in the anime, the Crystal Saint explains to Hyoga how to manipulate temperature: [[spoiler:slow down the electrons and [[ANuclearError stay away from the nucleus]].]]
* Natsuki Kuga and her [[{{Mons}} Child]], Duran, from ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}''.
* Tokiya Mikagami in ''FlameOfRecca'' has a lot of water-based attacks, but that's mostly his low-level techniques. His high level technique includes ice-based attacks. On the other hand, his master, Meguri Kyouza, and his fellow Hyomon Ken practitioner, Kai, goes to the extreme and only uses ice.
* Umi Ryuuzaki of ''MagicKnightRayearth'' has the ''Ice Blades'' spell as her highest-level spell, [[DownPlayedTrope but for the most part]], [[MakingASplash she uses water-based ones]].
** Alcyone, the {{Stripperiffic}} sorceress [[spoiler:who [[LoveMakesYouEvil betrayed Cephiro out of love]] for BigBad Zagato]], however, used nothing but ice spells.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Gray and Leon, as past students of Ur, were taught to create weapons using ice magic. Leon creates moving, 'dynamic' ice compared to Gray's 'static' ice.
** [[GenderBlenderName Eve]] uses Snow magic.
** [[spoiler:Ur's daughter, Urtear, can also use Ice magic. She uses it in chapter 240 when Gray finds a way to counter her Time magic.]]
** [[spoiler:Silver is an Ice Devil Slayer. He's so powerful that he can freeze [[PlayingWithFire Natsu]] solid with one gesture. He also effortlessly froze the great fire dragon Atlas Flame.]]
* Akira in ''SamuraiDeeperKyo'', who actually has the power to make things [[YouFailPhysicsForever colder than absolute zero]] at the cost of some of his own life.
** Then again, it could be possible, at least with magic, but as absolute zero is the temperature at which all molecular movement stops, it would be pretty useless.
* Grigori 03 from ''{{Psyren}}'', and he's in denial about being [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Neku.]]
* Some characters are this in ''Franchise/{{Anpanman}}''.
* Horo Horo from ''ShamanKing''. Also sourced from a NatureSpirit.
* Yukime from ''HellTeacherNube''. She actually ''is'' a NatureSpirit (more exactly, a Yuki-Onna, a ghost from Japanese mythology).
* [[DudeLooksLikeALady Haku]], Zabuza Momochi's BattleButler from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. The ability to use ice techniques was a unique [[SuperpowerfulGenetics bloodline capability]] later revealed to work by combining [[BlowYouAway wind]] and [[MakingASplash water]] [[{{Mana}} chakra]].
* Ryuuga from ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' uses a fighting style that freezes his enemy from the inside.
* Ami Mizuno, aka Sailor Mercury of ''Anime/SailorMoon'', started out with [[MakingASplash water-based attacks]]. Then, when sea-based Michiru/Sailor Neptune showed up, she was [[SuperheroSpeciation stuck with ice to differentiate the two]]. Once Michiru got PutOnABus with the other Outers, Ami moved, for the most part, back to water.
* Maria of ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' plays up the ice angle with all she's got; she's stuck up, cruel, and often described as "cool" or "cold". While the rest of the QuirkyMinibossSquad to which she belongs harbours genuine MadLove, her interest in her boss is purely physical and she doesn't really care whether he loves her back or not, even if she is [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend a childhood friend]]. She also enjoys turning people into {{Human Popsicle}}s and specifically targets lovers because warm feelings seem to physically hurt her.
* ''UruseiYatsura'' had Queen [[MeaningfulName Oyuki]], who ''was'' a fairly nice person, aside from occasionally freezing everything around her in a huge block of ice.
* Mannen from ''{{Pretear}}'' specializes in freezing things, with his element listed as "cold" -- "water" is a separate element controlled by a different Knight.
* The same listed trainers in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' in the anime, as well as Ash's disobedient Snorunt in one season.
* Mizore from ''RosarioToVampire'' fits within these bounds. Based on a snow woman from Japanese mythology, she has a variety of ice powers, including making her limbs (and hair) into ice, blizzard attacks, and ice clones. Her mother, Tsurara, as well.
** [[MeaningfulName Mizore means "sleet" and Tsurara means "icicle".]]
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' had a couple of ice [[PsychicPowers stand]] users. The first one was a falcon named Pet Shop in Part 3 who could create ice formations in midair and control them. The second was Ghiacchio from Part 5 who could create an absolute-zero field around himself and control ice within his range.
** In Part I Dio Brando used his vampiric abilities to drain heat from his victim's bodies, freezing their blood in the process. This was an effective counter-measure against the vampire killing Ripple which relies on breath control and the flow of blood. [[spoiler:Jonathan had to ''set his own fist on fire'' to hit Dio with a Ripple.]]
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has Evangeline, whose ice magic can reach ice-age like states, including an ancient Greek spell that covers a 150-square foot area in absolute zero temperatures. It translates to something like "Eternal Glacier" and "End of the World".
** The spell has two different endings and its effects vary based on which ending is used. The "Eternal Glacier" ending simply encases the target in a solid block of ice, while the "End of the World" ending actually ''turns the target's body into ice'' and [[LiterallyShatteredLives shatters it]].
* The Snow and The Freeze from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''.
* ''VampireKnight'' has Hanabusa Aido, a vampire with ice based powers. He's actually a pretty cool guy most of the time.
* ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'' gives us Isaac [=McDougall=], the Freezing Alchemist. However, he's been shown to use not just ice, but high-pressure [[MakingASplash water]], steam, and [[BloodyMurder his own blood]]. His favored mode of killing is to freeze or boil all the water in a person's body.
* ''{{Guyver}}'' has Bio-Freezer, a [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup Lost Number]] who can shoot chilling air that can freeze a lake in a few seconds. This has come in handy for the good guys a few times, but since he has otherwise below-average abilities for a Zoanoid and his freezing power leaves him exhausted whenever he uses it, he usually ends up being OvershadowedByAwesome. Eventually, [[spoiler:he performs a Heroic Sacrifice, allowing himself to be absorbed by Aptom in order to save his life. Aptom then gains his powers]].
* Nobara Ibaragi in ''GakuenAlice'' has the Alice (magic power) of Ice.
* November 11 in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' sort of counts. His ability is to drain heat from anything he touches; cells burst and water turns to ice almost instantly. He can't [[ElementalBaggage make ice out of nowhere]], however, and needs something to conduct the freeze effect to be of much use.
* Akashikibu from ''BlazerDrive'' (coincidentally, she feels true beauty should last forever and manipulates a person with the same face-concealing bangs as [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Deidara]]).
* Snow of ''{{MAR}}'' uses ice-style [=ARMs=] (and one water-themed, eventually). Her real-world counterpart is named Koyuki.
** She's also weakened in a desert area, brought to the point of exhaustion in a volcano area, and hinted to be strengthened in an ice field.
* Free from ''Manga/SoulEater'' uses ice magic. But after centuries imprisoned by the witches, he's a bit rusty and does things like encase himself in blocks of ice and fall into the Thames (he was trying to use the ice to ''avoid'' falling). Being nigh-invulnerable, this isn't much of a problem for him.
* Metalgarurumon in ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' can fire ice missiles and freezing breath (the latter oddly [[CallingYourAttacks called]] "Metal Wolf Claw").
** He's got ice and destructive versions of all his attacks, all of which are prone to being labeled "Metal Wolf Claw" or "Ice Wolf Claw" depending on how the writers are feeling (though the original name of the attack is Cocytus Breath, named after one of the five rivers of the underworld in Greek Mythology). Also, there are a number of ice-related Digimon and ice versions of non-ice Digimon. Contrary to popular belief, Gabumon is ''not'' one of these - the blue energy he fires was once used to start a fire.
** Seadramon's main attack is freezing breath, which he used to encase Garurumon in ice in his first appearance. [=MetalSeadramon=] also has a freezing breath attack, at least in the non-''Adventure'' material (there he has fire breath).
** Tomoki Himi from ''DigimonFrontier'' possesses the Human and Beast Spirits of Ice, which allow him to [[HenshinHero transform into]] Chakkmon, a polar bear on skis, or Blizzarmon, a twin tomahawk wielding yeti.
*** Tomoki is also one of two members of the team whose [[MeaningfulName name]] [[PropheticNames invokes his element]] - the "Hi" in Himi uses the same Japanese character for "ice".
* Margarite from ''LightNovel/DragonCrisis''.
* Yukiki from ''SergeantFrog''.
* Blue Rose from ''TigerAndBunny''. She uses a Freeze Ray to direct attacks, but can also be very versatile with her power.
* Cure Beauty from ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''.
* In ''SaintBeast'', Rey has an "Ice Blade" elemental attack.
* Anastasia the Glacier from ''Anime/{{Brave 10}}'' who's, fittingly, [[SensualSlavs Russian]] and has mastery over ice jutsu. She claims to be very cold in every sense, [[spoiler:which includes cold-hearted betrayals.]]
* Seira from ''Anime/IlSolePenetraLeIllusioni''. How she got this from the power of [[TarotMotifs The Star]] is unclear.
* Ren Jomaku in Part Two of ''Manga/TokyoESP''
* Reiha from ''Manga/VampirePrincessMiyu'' is a Yuki-onna.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* 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.
* Bobby Drake, aka Iceman, from ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}''. That's just how he started out -- turns out, he's an Omega-level mutant (that means his full potential is ''Phoenix-class!'') with complete control over moisture. When Emma Frost (who is a psychic and normally has nothing to do with ice despite the name and the white outfit) took his body over, she did things with his powers that he could never do on his own... but he's learning bit by bit.
** One ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' comic suggests that he could basically become the next [[TheMightyThor Ymir]].
** In the Draco story arc, Bobby Drake gets his head cut off (in Ice form). He later reforms it using the water coming from a demon opponent. Later, Beast issues a research paper regarding this unique mutation for Iceman.
*** He once cured himself of poisoning by replacing his ''entire'' body with new ice little by little this way.
** ComicBook/{{Storm}} also has some Ice powers in the form of creating blizzards, but this is usually de-emphaized due to SuperheroSpeciation, and she uses more of her [[ShockAndAwe Thunderstorms]] and [[BlowYouAway Tornadoes]] abilities. In the animated series, where Iceman wasn't around, Storm was more than happy to whip up blizzards that could flash-freeze things fairly quickly (though not as quickly as Iceman).
* Tora Olafsdotter/Ice, Sigrid Nansen/Icemaiden, Dr. Joar Mahkent and his son, Cameron (both codenamed Icicle), and others in ''Franchise/TheDCU''.
** An issue of ''ComicBook/JusticeLeague Adventures'', set in the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, featured a team-up of Icicle, Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold, Killer Frost, obscure Franchise/WonderWoman foe Minister Blizzard, even more obscure Outsiders foe the Cryonic Man, and downright "Sorry, ''who?''" Batman foe the Snowman. All led by Polar Lord, a new villain from [[ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} Polar Boy's]] home planet. The story was called "Cold War".
*** And the team of villains was called the "Ice Pack".
* Blizzard in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse.
* Polar Boy of DC's Legion of Substitute Heroes and ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}.
* The Snow Queen is a prominent villain in ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}''.
* Elijah [[MeaningfulName Snow]] from ''ComicBook/{{Planetary}}''. Not quite frost projection, but the ability to draw heat out of an object on a molecular level; in his second appearance, he turns nerve gas to slush.
* [[TheFlash Captain Cold]]: His "cold gun" reaches temperatures of absolute zero, which causes water molecules in the air to immediately form ice, which can be used to freeze people (though because of his code against killing innocents, he usually simply holds people in suspended animation rather than outright kill them), create objects from ice, and also to produce a "cold field" which slows down things around him and is used as explanation as to why he might be able to deal with the Flash.
** As of the ComicBook/NewFiftyTwo, he seems to no longer require the cold gun.
* Killer Frost is an interesting variant as well: apparently created by someone with ''slightly'' more understanding of thermodynamics than most Ice People, she absorbs heat, rather than projecting cold. This means you can't [[KillItWithFire Kill Her With Fire]].
** Made extra interesting by the fact that attempting to [[KillItWithFire Kill Her With Fire]] just makes her happy -- she uses the powers because she can't get warm, due to a side-effect of getting them.
** Ironically this also means that [[KillItWithIce freezing her]] is even more effective against her than it would be on normal people.
* Arctica Lagopus from the series ''The ComicBook/{{Extinctioners}}'', an Arctic Fox with Ice powers. Didn't see that one coming.
* Skurge the Executioner from ''TheMightyThor''. Using his Axe, he opens a portal ([[AbsurdlySharpBlade by cutting the air]]) to a dimension of cold, letting the icy wind blow onto his enemies. He can also do the same thing with a dimension of [[PlayingWithFire fire]].
** Ymir can create blizzards with no effort, among other such Ice-related abilities (he is much stronger than most Giants, as he is the original Norse one). However, unlike Frost Giants, he is an Ice Giant and seems to be literal living ice.
** Kelda has weather control powers, which includes generating ice and forming weapons from it. And she can make poisonous ice.
** ComicBook/{{Loki}} has many mystical powers at his disposal, but he's got a talent for ice magic thanks to his Frost Giant heritage.
* Sub-Zero, from ''Blue Bolt Comics'', gained ice powers when his spaceship passed through a comet.
* Dr. Frost from ''Prize Comics'' had ice powers and would encase himself in ice to survive explosions.
* Tor from ''Crack Comics'' had control over ice.
* One-shot villain Icy Mike, for whom Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'s boyfriend, Thugboy, once worked for.
* Frostbite from ''DV8'' has an odd twist on the formula: his power is absorbing heat. He uses this to freeze enemies in their tracks, but he can also release his stored heat in an explosive blast.
* There was an obscure GoldenAge MarvelComics hero named Jack Frost with these powers. TheMightyThor eventually declared him to have been a diminutive [[NorseMythology frost giant.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* The ''Pokemon'' fanfic epic ''Pokemon Master'' gave this ability to Misty, among other water trainers.
* The ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' fanfic ''Dangerous Black Ice'' gives this power to Marufuji Ryou, after having made him into one of the Seven Stars. Perhaps notably, he still wears black, not white.
* ''LemmysLand'' characterizes [[SuperMarioBros Lemmy Koopa]] as this. His WeaponOfChoice is a freeze gun, which was the subject of [[http://www.lemmykoopa.com/lk2/lk2-1.html the webmaster's first story]].
* In Fanfic/KeepersOfTheElements, Bridgette has this as a power, combined with being able to control [[MakingASplash water]].
* John in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', thanks to his [[MakingASplash magical water-charm]]. Ice is just one of the many things he can do. Also, since he can alter the physical properties of water, he can create “warm ice” that won't hurt anyone it covers.
* FruitsBasket fanfic The ''Eyes of the Cat'' allows a ghost to freeze the BigBad alive by increasing the chill that being a ghost causes by about one million.
* Eri in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' fanfic, ''FanFic/ErisGame'' has three pins of ice attacks.
* Nivus in FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire is so good with ice-based abilities that hardly any attack can get past his defences to the Judgemaster he guards.
* Nerine of Fanfic/FlyOrFall is the Fairy of Ice.
* In ''Fanfic/UnderTheNorthernLights'' nidhoggs are limb-less dragonlike monsters who breathe ice cold instead of fire. They primarily use it to deep-freeze wood and then eat it.
* Colgate in ''Fanfic/AceCombatEquestriaChronicles'' can use her magic to temporarily freeze the enemies... or apple pies, to be used as thrown weapons by other ponies.
* FanFic/AGrowingAffection has two; Natsuki, Gaara's bodyguard and the only Ice jutsu user in the Hidden Sand, and Bunjiro Egureru, user of the ice blade Souhi.
* Fanfic/ShinraHighSOLDIER has the [[JerkSue infamous]] [[MarySue Julia]] [[GratuitousJapanese Nakahamou]], an overall cold person often described as icy, whose limit break, Heaven's Judgment, summons ice daggers that get thrown at her opponent.
* ''Fanfic/TheMysteriousSchool'' has Ai Haibara.
* True to form, Amy gets these powers when she picks up the Ice Flower during the Mario World Saga in ''[[FanFic/MarioAndSonicHeroesUnite Mario and Sonic: Heroes Unite!]]''. She gets these powers whenever she wants during the Sonic World Saga by simply using a Chaos Emerald.
* ''FanFic/StarsAbove'': [[spoiler:The Ninth is a [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Demon]] made of ice that resides at the center of a frozen lake.]]
* [[WhatCouldHaveBeen An unused concept for a]] ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' episode involved the protagonists accidentally unleashing an ice demon sleeping under a hill.
* ''FanFic/MyLittleUnicorn'':
** Some of Dementia's attacks invoke this.
** Frosteye from ''My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic III''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Frozone in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', while a partial parody of the ComicBook/SilverSurfer, has the ability to generate ice as his main superpower.
* In Disney's ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', literal ice queen Elsa could generate ice and snow as a young kid, but had a hard time controlling her powers. Her ice powers increase as she gets older so she can generate giant ice palaces and snow golems, but she still has difficulty controlling them, accidentally plunging her kingdom into a forever winter and completely freezing the fjord.
* The 2005 movie ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicRoundabout'''s villain, Zeebad, is this. (Curiously, midway through the film, he actually ''beats'' someone PlayingWithFire.)
* Jack Frost in ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians''.
* ''Animation/TheSnowQueen2012'' has the Snow Queen, who controls the powerful North Wind.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze in the critically panned 1997 film ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''. [[PungeonMaster His dialog is essentially a nonstop collage of incredibly lame ice-related puns in a thick Austrian accent, which greatly accentuates the unintentional comedy factor in the movie.]] [[HurricaneOfPuns Pun times may be had by all]]. So far, the matter of whether the film is SoBadItsGood or so bad that it's terrible has been rather...[[{{Pun}} polarizing]]. One of two times that Arnold has ever taken the role of an antagonist. (''Film/TheTerminator'' was the other.)
* In ''Film/{{Thor}}'', the Frost Giants can create blasts of ice as well as [[MorphWeapon shape it into weaponry]]. [[spoiler: Loki]] is able to use the Casket of Ancient Winters to generate ice blasts as well, once he discovers his true heritage.
* The White Witch in the film version of ''Film/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' was very much an ice person, possibly even more than her book incarnation.
* From ''Film/TheGreatYokaiWar'', a Yuki-Onna was one of those asked to help battle the (IIRC) Demon of Revenge. She says she can't help because it's not her season.
* A background character in ''Film/SkyHigh'' simply known as Freeze Girl (no word on if she's actually [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosting]]), who's the [[CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds last-minute hookup]] for [[PlayingWithFire Warren]].
* ''Film/XMen'':
** Iceman uses his mutant ability to create ice.
** In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', when confronted by mutant with a fire power the Future Sentinels turn to ice to combat that.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Ilke in ''Literature/{{Phenomena}}'', she was given some of the spirit of a Frost spirit and can use most powers related to frost, like ice and snow.
* In ''Literature/TheSingerOfAllSongs'', there are several kinds of chantments (magic songs). The Daughters of Taris, an all-female religious order, can sing the chantments of ice, and they protect their territory with a giant ice wall. Instead of combining with water (indeed, it's noted that the ability to swim isn't particularly common among them), the High Priestess also bears and passes on the knowledge of the chantments of ice that invoke darkness, the opposite of the chantments of fire which also have power over light.
* "Literature/TheSnowQueen".
* Blizzard in ''Literature/TalesOfAnMazingGirl'' cab create ice with his gun. He is of course named after the video Game company, Activision/Blizzard.
* Jadis, the White Witch of Creator/CSLewis's ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', causes unending winter and lives in an ice castle.
* The eponymous ''Discworld/{{Wintersmith}}'', of the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel, though this is just a subset of his general "Embodiment of the force of winter itself" bit.
** In ''Discworld/ThiefOfTime'', we find out that Kaos, the fifth horseman who left before they became famous, has a sword that's so cold it goes beyond absolute zero and generates a sort of "burning cold" anti-heat. He uses it to keep milk fresh by putting it in the same room as a super-hot burning furnace.
* The Clayr of the ''Literature/OldKingdom'' trilogy, though primarily a clan of [[OneGenderRace all female]] clairvoyants, use ice to amplify their Sight, hence why they live in a Glacier. When away from the glacier, they use spells to create a screen of ice on which they project their Sight, so as to show others.
* The ''Jaz Parks'' series has Vayl, a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent a particular type]] called a Wraith, who have the power to produce cold temperatures. He later [[PowerCopying gains the ability]] to form superhard ice armor, in the manner of [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Iceman]].
* [[TheFairFolk Queen Mab of the Winter Court of Faerie]] in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' has near absolute control over ice and, in one instance, [[EyeScream froze the water in Harry Dresden's eyeballs]] to prove a point (namely, that he should shut up).
** Harry also figured out that he can adjust his fire spells to draw heat less evenly from the surroundings and, a couple of times, uses this to freeze water.
** After [[spoiler: he took Mab's offer of becoming the Winter Knight,]] Harry has been able to use ice-related spells much more. It was hinted that his new mastery of ice and his old mastery of fire are significant somehow.
* [[PlayingWithFire Firecrafters]] in ''Literature/CodexAlera'' can do this by using their furies to ''remove'' heat from something instead of adding it. We first see this demonstrated by [[SmugSnake Kalarus Brencis Minoris]], who thinks it's funny to push [[TheCallPutMeOnHold the obvious bully-target]] into a fountain and freeze the water around him.
* The Groke ("Mårran" in the original) in the ''{{Moomin}}'' stories is a hag-like being who is ice cold. [[WalkingWasteland She freezes the ground she walks on and kills the plants with frost]]; if she stays too long, [[TouchOfDeath nothing ever grows there again]]. She cannot create ice directly, but once, when she need to take a sea trip, she wades out on the beach and lets the water freeze into an icefloe, giving her a makeshift boat. The one time we get to see things from her perspective, we learn [[MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold she longs for heat, light, and company and is not cold or dark by choice]].
* The winter court in the ''WickedLovely'' series. Specifically, Beira the winter queen and Donia the winter girl. [[spoiler: Donia later becomes the next winter queen after Beira's death. Her icy nature is caused by bitterness about being forced to become the winter girl, and thus not being able to be with her [[StarCrossedLovers love]], Keenan, the summer king - their very natures are incompatible, although it is implied that, after Beira's death, they at least try. I would imagine it would be painful; Keenan would end up covered in frostbite and Donia in burns.]]
* The Creator/HarukiMurakami short story ''Ice Man''...a woman falls in love with a guy who has "white patches of snow" in his hair and a look "piercing like an icicle" and it doesn't end too well.
* In ''TheMagicians'', though we don't really see her use it, Janet mentions her discipline is a specialized form of cold magic.
* ''Literature/TwilightDragon'' has Princess Atoli, who is specifically known as the Sorceress of Snow.
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ConanTheBarbarian story "''Literature/TheFrostGiantsDaughter''", the titular character wears nothing but a veil of gossamer on a snowfield, can run over snow without leaving tracks, and, when Conan catches her, is as cold as ice.
** Her dad, Ymir, who doesn't actually appear but rescues her and freezes Conan almost to death in the process.
* The villain of Caroline Cooney's ''Freeze Tag'' combines this oddly with TakenForGranite--her basic schtick is that if she touches you, she renders you frozen and immobile, apparently forever, [[AndIMustScream while fully conscious and aware]]. She never actually kills any of her victims and, at several points, undoes the effect just to toy with them. (This leads to part of the conflict over whether or not to kill her--if she can't be [[HeelFaceTurn redeemed]], a lot of people will stay frozen.)
* The titular character from Creator/MercedesLackey's [[TalesofTheFiveHundredKingdoms Snow Queen]], [[spoiler: especially the second one]], has this ability, as does the Icehart.
* ''Literature/TrappedOnDraconica'': Zarracka can do this with her BreathWeapon.
** ''Literature/LegacyOfTheDragokin'': So can her nephew, Benji.
* Alexander Velitzyn, main character of J. M. Siderova's ''The Age of Ice'', conceived on a bed of ice is immune to cold and when in a state of high emotion his flesh becomes painfully cold to the touch. In time he learns to control this, being able to make ordinary ice diamond hard and to turn water to ice at will. Extreme, as in Arctic level, cold puts him into a state of suspended animation. After doing this once he stops aging, his story extending over 250 years. It is hinted that he may be an incarnation of Old Man Frost.
* In the ''Literature/RainbowMagic'' series, Jack Frost, the goblins, and some of the fairies all have ice magic.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Sylar adds this power to his arsenal of powers he's [[PowerCopying stolen from other superhumans]] in ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. Tracy Strauss -- Nikki's doppelganger\genetic twin -- has the same power.
* Ice from ''AmazingExtraordinaryFriends''.
* Frosta from ''Lastikman'' can manipulate ice.
* Kane from the ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial ''Dragonfire''.
* In one episode of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', The Trio uses a freeze gun on a museum guard.
* [[AllThereInTheManual According to the NBC website]], the Eighth Kingdom of ''TheTenthKingdom'' miniseries is ruled by the Ice Queen. Aside from being described as "terrorizing the people of the fishing villages and fjords", it is stated she wishes to rule all the Kingdoms and, one day, plans to conquer them. Clearly an example of a WomanInWhite and EvilIsDeathlyCold. (And this has been played up in various {{FanFic}}s.)
* Miyuki from ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'' has this as her power. The same for her ''Power Rangers'' counterpart, Udonna, in ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce''. As high-ranking wizards, they - especially Udonna - can do a ''whole'' lot more.
** Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive villain Flurious is the most prominent one in the series. He lives in arctic cave and can freeze you over and shatter you (though, this being a kids' show, you ''really'' don't see him do that a whole lot).
* Franchise/KamenRider doesn't have a whole lot of ice users, but a prominent example is ''Series/KamenRiderBlade's'' Leangle. So is ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'''s SuperMode [=PuToTyra=].
* Lily from ''Series/{{Misfits}}'' gains the power of freezing objects she touches. In the Nazi timeline, Captain Smith has Seth transfer her power into himself.
* An early MonsterOfTheWeek in ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', in the episode "Cool", is a jock who gets the ability to freeze anything he touches. He's similar to Killer Frost; he doesn't project "cold" as if it's a thing unto itself as opposed to lack of heat. Instead, he absorbs heat, and has to do so so he won't freeze. Body heat works best for him, for no reason other than the fact that a guy sucking the energy out of fireplaces doesn't make much of a villain. A much later episode, ''Absolute Justice'' in season nine, introduces both Icicles (see Comics).
* The fifth episode of ''Series/MythQuest'' tells of the story of Minokichi and Yuki-Onna, a snow demon.
* Donnie Gill in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', after his StartOfDarkness.

[[folder:Mythology]]
* The Yuki-Onna from JapaneseMythology was often an extremely pale woman who lived within snow storms. Tended to guide travelers to either their frozen deaths or to safety, if she so wished to.
* Jack Frost, natch. Generally, he simply brings winter to certain areas (winter/cold follows him everywhere), but some stories have him using his power to freeze people to death in an instant if they piss him off.
* [[NorseMythology Frost giants.]]
* Poli'ahu of Hawaiian Mythology, along with her sisters/friends Lilinoe, Waiau, and Kahoupokane. She is their leader, and widely noted for her beauty. She is said to live atop Mauna Kea, though she visits other snowy peaks on the island. She is the antithesis to the fire goddess, Pele.
* In Greek mythology, Khione was the daughter of Boreas, the [[BlowYouAway North Wind]], and was worshiped as a minor goddess who brought snow.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/{{WCW}} wrestler Wrestling/{{Glacier}} had a whole entrance motif built around ice and snow. Fitting, since he was a knockoff...err, CaptainErsatz...of Sub-Zero.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Podcasts]]
* The ''Jade Regent'' Campaign from Podcast/{{RPGMP3}} features a character called Skygni, who's a [[UpliftedAnimal magically Awakened]] [[KillItWithIce frost]]-[[BreathWeapon breathing]] [[AnIcePerson Winter]] [[SavageWolves Wolf]]. He swore a [[MagicallyBindingContract Blood Oath]] (under duress) to [[TokenEvilTeammate not eat people]]. Well, at least not the ones travelling with the heroes' caravan, anyway.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?name=Heidar,%20Rimewind%20Master Heidar, Rimewind Master]], the villain of the ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' set ''Coldsnap''. Also a WellIntentionedExtremist who wanted to return the world to a second Ice Age.
* The Ice Queen of Kislev, ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''.
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has numerous variations and examples. Aside from the various deities of cold and winter, there's the Frostwind Virago that's the fey incarnation of the fickle and cruel nature of winter, the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Frost Mage]] prestige class, the Winterhaunt of Iborighu prestige class, which eventually leads to transforming into an unholy abomination of ice and snow, the psionic Cryokineticist prestige class, and more.
** D&D also has White Dragons, who have freezing breath instead of fire.
** 4th edition's different ruleset has killed "conjurer" and "evoker" wizard specialising, to be replaced by the classic elemental mages. Being an ice mage from level 1, with feats to match, is doable.
** First edition had an evil humanoid race called "Frost Men'' who could shoot a "cone of cold" as an [[EyeBeams eye beam.]]
* Jerza Wagner, a ghost from the ''{{Ravenloft}}'' setting, drains the living warmth from her victims and leaves them frozen solid. No, they don't wake up if you chip the ice away.
** While the Darklord Meredoth is technically a necromancer, he uses lots of ice-based spells and has a frozen lair.
* ''{{Champions}}'', being a super-hero role-playing game, has clones of many popular superheroes and supervillains, including a CaptainErsatz of Iceman named ''Icestar''. He lacks the former's frigid body-armor, but shares the wisecracking personality. (An old rules example for Presence Attacks has Icestar blasting a villain-carried crate and quipping, "Heads up, boys, the Good Humor man is here!")
* ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' has an optional Psychic Character Class called the Freezer, with various cryogenic powers.
* Psychokinetic psions in White Wolf's ''TabletopGame/{{Trinity}}'' could specialize in Cryokinesis, allowing them to freeze enemies.
* The Winter Court from ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' get powers like this under the Contracts of Eternal Winter. They range from freezing any liquid solid instantly, to creating an aura of crippling cold, to causing a person to be hit by a hailstone the size of their head, to summoning a blizzard. Yes, even in hot climates.
* ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh:'' Even though Ghostrick Yuki-onna has the Dark Attribute, she has the effect of freezing her opponent if she gets destroyed.

[[folder:Toys]]
* Every single Toa of Ice in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', plus a handful of other beings (though "a handful" does include an ''entire swarm'' of Kohrak).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''[='s=] last brush technique, Blizzard, is received from Itegami in [[GrimUpNorth Kamui]].
* Lots of Robot Masters in ''VideoGame/MegaMan1'' Ice Man, [[VideoGame/MegaMan6 Blizzard Man]], [[VideoGame/MegaManAndBass Cold Man]], [[VideoGame/MegaMan7 Freeze Man]], [[VideoGame/MegaMan8 Frost Man]], [[VideoGame/MegaMan10 Chill Man]]...let's not even get into the Reploids of ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]]'' or ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZX ZX]]''...
** ROMHack ''RockmanNoConstancy'' turns Wood Man into this.
** ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX X]]'' series: Chill Penguin from ''X1'', Blizzard Buffalo from ''X3'', Frost Walrus from ''X4'', Tidal Makkoeen/Duff McWhalen from ''X5'', Blizzard Wolfang from ''X6'', and Avalanche Yeti from ''X8.''
* The Ice-type in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. One of the best offensive types in the game, super-effective against Grass, Ground, Flying, and most importantly Dragon, and Ice-type moves (especially Ice Beam and Blizzard) can be learned by nearly all Water-type Pokemon and a large number of other Pokemon. Nearly all Ice attacks have a chance of freezing the opponent solid, completely immobilizing it (and in Gen 1 they couldn't defrost without an item, a trip to the Pokemon Center, or being hit with a Fire-based attack), and some lower the opponent's speed. Defensively, however, Ice is one of the worst types, resisting only itself and being weak to Fire, Rock, Fighting, and Steel. Ice-type Pokemon themselves [[GlassCannon tend to have either high attack or special attack and mediocre to good speed, but low defenses and HP]]. The only Ice-type Pokemon in the two highest tiers of the metagame is [[OlympusMons Kyurem and its Formes]].
** Ice type ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' trainers Pryce, Glacia, Candice, Lorelei, Brycen, and Wulfric. [[MeaningfulName Notice a trend?]]
* Python from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid: Portable Ops'' is a particularly inexplicable example. His powers come from the mastery of liquid nitrogen.
* The {{Golem}} Lolithia in the ''Franchise/WildARMs'' series, also known as the Ice Queen.
* The MadScientist Vexen of ''KingdomHearts''.
* LevelGrinding Celes in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' will make her learn all three levels of Ice/Blizzard magic without the aid of Magicite (she's one of two characters who can learn magic by level grinding; the other is Terra who [[PlayingWithFire learns Fire spells]]).
** On the subject of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'', the summon Shiva is a prime example of this trope. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' has her protocrystal in the GrimUpNorth, for crying out loud.
** Edea in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' shoots a piercing shard of ice as her LimitBreak. It's not a huge part of her character, but [[CutscenePowerToTheMax certain events]] gave it a strong association in the players' memories.
** [[MeaningfulName Snow]] of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' learns the Blizzard series of spells, including Blizzaga (and Water), but no Fire or Thunder spells. He also gets to summon Shiva.
** In ''Dissidia012FinalFantasy'' Tifa specializes in the Blizzard line of spells, to make her something of a counterpart to her canonmate Cloud.
* Sub-Zero of ''Videogame/MortalKombat''. And his pupil, Frost, for that matter.
** There were actually ''two'' Sub-Zeros. The first one was neutral/bordering on evil and was killed by Scorpion (and then switches over into using darkness when he becomes Noob Saibot). The second was his younger brother, who started off attempting to complete his brother's hit, but ended up becoming a genuinely heroic figure.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''' Kula Diamond.
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'':
** Rutee Katrea from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny''.
** Celsius, the Summon Spirit of Ice introduced in ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia''. For that matter, Celsius and her costume in ''Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 3'' and ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'''s Keele, who apparently was assigned both Celsius and Undine for that game.
** Veigue Lungberg, the main protagonist of ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth''.
** Alice from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld''. Witness her LimitBreak in action [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgogElp4XYk here]].
** Alice doesn't use just any ice attack, she uses fimbulvetr/winter which is the winter that precedes the the end of the world, so she is pretty much using the strongest ice attack in mythology.
* Glacies from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny'' pilos the Ruina mecha Fabularis, which controls ice.
** Also, in the Characters/MasouKishin portion, the [[MakingASplash Water]] Herald Tytti Noorbuck (piloting Gaddeath) can use an ice area attack called ''Kelvin Blizzard''. And in the UpdatedRerelease of Lord of the Elemental, the Hydro Pressure become ''Jotunheim'', where she creat gigantic glacies to finish enemies. The rest of her attacks are water-based though. When she gets into the roster of ''2nd VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'', Hydro Pressure also gains ice attributes.
** There's also the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura General Maysis Mark]], who uses Peirines, the Shura God that uses ice.
* In ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart 2'', newcomer Zenia Valov's default Arcana lets her control ice. (It also takes the form of [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins a penguin]].)
* The ''IceClimbers'' gain this status in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series.
* Liches in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' and ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' will usually specialize in ice magic. Just look at Kel'Thuzad.
** Frost magi (a common talent specialization for mages [[strike:at lower levels]] [[SquishyWizard who want to survive that first hit in PvP]]).
** Frost Wyrms and the new Death Knight class (which, like mages, can specialize in frost effects).
** Racial conflict => external enemy required => a threat to all life => "too hot" (demons) and "too cold" (undead); logic at work, simple and elegant world design.
** In terms of who's the frostiest class? In terms of raw number of (and amount of damage revolving around) frost spells, it is 1: frost mage 2: frost death knight 3: shaman 4: priest is getting a shadowfrost spell, so that's a half a spell for them.
** The Lich King also has a number of ice-based techniques in his arsenal.
** Hodir, one of the guardians in Ulduar.
* Anri from ''ShiningForce'' specializes in ice magic.
** [[IceQueen Blanc Neige]] of ''VideoGame/ShiningTears'', fittingly called 'Ice Witch', since all of her magic are ice based. And she's [[DefrostingIceQueen suspectible of being defrosted]].
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has several ice/cold powersets.
* Uesugi Kenshin in ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' has lots of ice-based moves, and it's his element as well. And if your name is 'Kasuga', he's VERY NICE. Other ice users here include Itsuki and Hojo Ujimasa.
** To drive the point home, his name was [[{{Woolseyism}} woolseyed]] in the first game to [[MeaningfulName "Frost"]].
*** The third game adds [[ShrineMaiden Tsuruhime]] and [[DastardlyWhiplash Yoshiaki Mogami]]. The former an [[GenkiGirl energetic young girl]] whose skill with the bow allows her to shoot ice arrows at her enemies and the latter can create ice sculptures as well as use feints and counterattacks.
* The [[WeirdMoon Purple Moon]] in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' produces the ice element, and the continent under the Purple Moon's orbit is [[SlippySlideyIceWorld akin to the north and south poles]]. Gilder can learn the ice spells faster than the other party members, and Ramirez has several Super Moves with an ice theme as well.
* Blizzard, the benevolent gorilla god of ''PrimalRage'', breathes freezing air and summons ice pillars from the ground. His coloration is also ice-like, with pure white fur over blue skin.
* Marle from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''. She's still listed as a 'Water'-type, though. And together with Frog (who uses liquid water), they have a double tech 'Ice Water'.
** Ice and water are combined as 'Blue' elements in the sequel, ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''. It opposes Red (fire/lava), and both tend to be vulnerable to each other.
* Samus from ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' has the Ice Beam, which is the weakness of the Metroids. In ''Metroid Fusion'', she also gains Diffusion Ice missiles.
** Noxus from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime Hunters'' and Rundas from ''Metroid Prime 3: Corruption''.
* Mario using the Ice Flower in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy''. Mario becomes made of ice in ''Galaxy'' but turns into a form that can shoot ice balls in ''NSMBW''.
** Also, from the other games: Freezies in ''VideoGame/MarioBros'' and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', Baron Brrr from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', Chief Chilly from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64 DS'', the Crystal King from ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', Beldam from ''[[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door]]'', Bonechill from ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', Jojora from ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi Mario & Luigi]]'', and Blizzaurus from ''VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach''.
* [[{{Kanon}} Shiori Misaka]], from ''EternalFighterZero'', who creates various temporary weapons out of ice, in addition to the usual ice beams and icicle attacks.
* Cirno and Letty Whiterock from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series.
** And Mai, from the PC-98 games. (Ironically, her friend [[NonindicativeName Yuki]] is the one who [[PlayingWithFire Plays With Fire]].)
* Yuki in ''VideoGame/TheLastBlade''
* Rimururu from ''SamuraiShodown''. Sourced from a NatureSpirit.
* Mia and Piers, of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' and ''Golden Sun: The Lost Age'' respectively.
** Alex!
** Anyone, if they equip the right Djinn (or items for Frost in the first game).
** Rief and Amiti in the third game.
* Subverted in ''Franchise/FireEmblem''. The Fimbulvetr and Blizzard spells have names and visual effects usually associated with ice magic...however, they're actually listed as ''[[BlowYouAway wind]]'' tomes, since FE's anima magic doesn't include ice (only Wind, [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] and [[ShockAndAwe Thun]][[PsychoElectro der]])
* ''{{Franchise/Shin Megami Tensei}}''
** In general, the Bufu line of skills, which is a common element in the series alongside [[PlayingWithFire Agi]] and [[ShockAndAwe Zio]] spells. The most powerful skill of this element is Niflheim.
** Mitsuru Kirijo in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has an array of ice spells in her disposal, thanks to her persona.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' there are two ice users: Chie Satonaka and Teddie. Chie only barely counts, though. She stops learning ice spells around the time Teddie joins and ends up a beastial KickChick by the endgame. Averted by [[IronicName Yukiko]]. She actually uses [[PlayingWithFire fire]] skills.
** Mitsuru in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' uses ice powers, and wears a [[PrettyInMink white fur]] [[BadassLongcoat coat]] as an IceSuit.
* Borya the [[SquishyWizard magician]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV''.
** The Daughter from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' has a main development on ice-based magic.
** The recurring monster Blizzardy, naturally.
** By default, any monster with an ice skill set from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestMonsters''.
* Yukimaru and Fubuki from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|Cursed Memories}}'' come from a clan of ninjas from a hidden snow village, so all of their character-specific special techniques involve snow and ice.
** Pram from MakaiKingdom and Mao and Rozalin in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' have ice as their primary element.
** The Holy Dragons in both of the aforementioned Disgaea titles have an affinity for ice, and combine it with [[HolyHandGrenade light]] in their special attacks .
* Keith Evans, the 'BigBad' from ''PsychicForce''.
** Technically, the story changes who the BigBad is, though once you take them all together Keith is [[WellIntentionedExtremist more like Magneto]] while Wong [[AGodAmI is like Apocalypse or Shaw]] and Setsuna is like Mr Sinister.
* Jin Kisaragi from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. To call him ''nice'', however, [[{{Jerkass}} would]] [[AxCrazy be]] [[{{Yandere}} highly]] [[EvilIsDeathlyCold inaccurate]].
* ''VideoGame/SuikodenTierkreis''' Sphiel, a literal snow fairy.
** Although the True Water Rune can be held by any of the three main characters, [[TheParagon Chris]] [[LadyOfWar Lightfellow]] has the best affinity for it.
* Freezing is a powerup in ''Backyard Baseball'' and other ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'' games.
* Elena in ''VideoGame/VisionsAndVoices'' is the only playable character that can use Cold spells.
* The Queen of Ice, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/EnchantedArms''. Appearance and personality-wise, she appears to be an {{Expy}} of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Edea and Ultimecia]], although, instead of throwing ice or summoning a familiar that can, she's made out of ice and ''is'' the familiar.
* ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'': Freudia Neuwahl, although she also has a [[FrickinLaserBeams laser]]. She expands on this in her own installment, ''Freudenstachel'', where she modifies her ice powers [[PowerCopying to match her friends' weapons]].
* Glacius from ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' is made of ice, he is also an alien, the inverse of Cinder, who is made of fire.
* Sasquatch from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''. Other characters, like Donovan Baine and Huitzil, also have some ice-based attacks.
* Not elemental per say, but Commander Shepard of VideoGame/MassEffect2 is the only squad member with access to the cryo ammo power that allows their guns to freeze enemies solid and shatter them. Truthfully, only one out of the six classes Shepard can be lacks a freeze power.
* Both Ice and Freeze Kirbys from the ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' series can freeze enemies into ice blocks.
* [[http://bioshock.wikia.com/wiki/Martin_Finnegan Martin Finnegan]] of ''VideoGame/BioShock1'', an apprentice of [[MadArtist Sander Cohen]] who turned himself into an 'iceman' to survive. [[TheProtagonist Jack]] and [[VideoGame/BioShock2 Subject Delta]] can also use the Winter Blast plasmid, while [[BioShockInfinite/BurialAtSea Booker and Elizabeth]] can use Old Man Winter in their respective halves of the Burial At Sea DLC.
* The SilverAge-styled video game ''VideoGame/FreedomForce'' has the former Soviet spy turned supervillain Nuclear Winter and his minions.
* ''InazumaEleven'' sports two teams associated with ice: the first is Hakuren, a team of Hokkaido children, whose captain is Shiro Fubuki, who is able to perform both the effective Ice Ground (a ball-stealing technique that freezes the enemy while Fubuki skates through an ice field) and the outstandingly powerful Eternal Blizzard (a powerful shot that is performed by making the ball spin in midair, absorbing cold air, then striking it with all one's might). The second one is Diamond Dust, led by Gazelle and his mighty kick, Northern Impact (he disappears and then shoots the ball from an ice field).
* [[http://cutstuff.net/blog/?page_id=1505 Frostbite]] from ''VideoGame/GhoulsVsHumans''. He is an ice elemental born from the "doomed souls in the Arctic", who avenges the deaths of those who are murdered or betrayed in the icy desert. He looks like a giant, floating skull made of ice and has the power of an icy breath, as well as powerful icy armor.
* ''AdvanceWars'', ''Black Hole Rising'', and ''Dual Strike'' have Olaf, whose army is immune to the effects of snow on the battlefield and whose (Super) CO Power makes it snow for two days.
* ''VideoGame/VanguardBandits'' allows any character who equips a [[PowerCrystal Water Stone]] for their [[AMechByAnyOtherName ATAC]] to use ice attacks. But in particular, there is Lord Alden the [[InSeriesNickname Ice Wolf]].
* [[MeaningfulName Serph]] and later [[spoiler:Sera]], in ''DigitalDevilSaga''.
* [[TheChick Kisala]] in ''VideoGame/RogueGalaxy''.
* Ice is a common weapon attribute in the [[DynastyWarriors Warr]][[SamuraiWarriors iors]] franchises. Depending on the game it may or may not be intrinsic.
* [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Meru]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon''.
* ''VideoGame/{{inFAMOUS 2}}'' has Lucy Kuo and [[spoiler: the Vermark 88 men who Cole releases when saving Lucy]]. If you go for the good side of the KarmaMeter, Cole can become one of these as well.
* The Cryo Legionnaire from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'' can not only freeze whole groups of ground units [[HarmlessFreezing for capture]] ([[LiterallyShatteredLives or for shatter]]), but they can [[WalkOnWater walk on (solid) water]] by flash-freezing the water beneath them, and create ice aircrafts from inside a turret. Being Red Alert, this is combined with a repertoire of [[PungeonMaster hammy, cryohydrous-related dialogue]].
* White Len from ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood''.
* Cyril, an elderly dragon who is the Ice Guardian in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro''.
* From ''VideoGame/RuneScape'': To'Kash the Bloodchiller and Astea Frostweb (also a spider summoner) on the frozen set of Dungeoneering floors, both of whom can freeze the player in a block of ice; Icy Bones, who surrounds the players with ice spikes and freezes those who aren't next to him; Kamil, the boss guarding the ice diamond in Desert Treasure and its dessert-based expy/homage Karamel from the last part of Recipe for Disaster; and [[spoiler:Lucien's ice titans, which can freeze the player in ice blocks, and ice demons, which create ice spikes around the player, trapping them in one place if they don't move.]]
* In ''VideoGame/KickleCubicle'', Kickle has the power to freeze enemies in ice blocks by breathing on them.
* In the Metroid Blast attraction of ''NintendoLand'', there are some space pirates that shoot ice as opposed to actual damaging shots, and fire three times as many shots to make up for it.
** Also, Ice Ridley, a PaletteSwap of Ridley. Although that's less an ice ''person'' than an ice alien... dragon... thing.
* {{Wizard101}} has the Thaumaturges, students of the Ice School. [[StoneWall They have the best resistance to all spells but have the weakest attacks.]] They also have a nasty habit of being able to steal defensive wards and healing auras from enemies.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Dubloon}}'', [[HeroicMime Russel]], [[MusicalAssassin Captain FC]] and Admiral Steel all specialize in ice magic.
* In ''VideoGame/SolomonsKey 2'', the blocks that Dana creates become ice blocks suseful for putting out fires.
* In ''Skweek'', Skweek's shots freeze enemies upon obtaining a powerup. Frozen enemies eventually break loose, but all the enemies can be frozen at once to instantly complete a stage.
* The Soul Magic skill tree in VideoGame/AvencastRiseOfTheMage leans on this trope for spells with movement-affecting abilities.
* ''VideoGame/WarioLand'':
** ''VideoGame/WarioLandII'' has the Yukimaru enemies, snowmen which shoots snowflakes that can freeze Wario and send him sliding away until he crashes into something.
** ''VideoGame/WarioLand3'' has the [[BearsAreBadNews Brr Bear]] enemies, which are [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of Yukimaru with the same abilities.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Yukinojo in ''VisualNovel/EnchantedInTheMoonlight'' is a yukibito (a kind of snow spirit), and correspondingly has the ability to create and control snow.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Yun from ''Webcomic/DivineBells''. He can create ice projectiles to skewer his enemies (although they don't often work...).
* In ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'', Red Mage exclusively casts Ice spells, leaving [[FireIceLightning Fire and Lightning]] to Black Mage. His spell level goes all the way up to ''Ice 9!''
* From ''AntiheroForHire'', Coldular/Froster/Cubenator, the ice-themed one-shot villain who picked a different name every damned time he spoke.
** And managed to work up some cold-based puns that shamed anyone else on this list for their stupidity, and that is saying something.
** With his recent reappearance, he's not said his new name but that doesn't stop the puns:
-->''' Coldular/Froster/Cubenator:''' I better make like a glacier and recede. Only, you know, faster.
* Sil'lice in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'', a Drow with an elementary affinity for ice (a snowflake is even part of her crest). She uses her powers to [[TortureTechnician torture people]] by freezing their blood and certainly fits the "icy" part of this trope in personality.
* In a world ruled by {{Mad Scientist}}s like ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', it's no surprise that the firefighters are something like the [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080602 Ninth Aetheric Vapor Squad]]. Their firefighting tools are Gas Condensers that, when kicked up a notch, can freeze a castle to the point where you can crack it open with a hammer.
* The Ice Immunes from ''FetchQuestSagaOfTheTwelveArtifacts'' are so called because they are not affected by the severe cold that ice brings. In fact, they developed a style of martial art utilizing it.
* Kieri of ''SlightlyDamned'' has ice powers along with her water magic, though, mostly, all she's done with them is HarmlessFreezing. [[http://www.sdamned.com/2008/10/10112008/ The demon Lazuli, on the other hand...]]
* Sa Ghang Gwon from the published webcomic ''[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/trace Trace]]'' definitely counts, given he doesn't really freeze things as he uses ice spikes.
* ''Webcomic/{{Supermegatopia}}'' illustrates some of the [[http://www.supermegatopia.com/gallery/booty-bay/chilled/ problems]] with being an ice person.
* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' has the Snow Queen.
* The supervillainess [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_KAMics/5113994/ Frosty Freisin]] in ''TheKAMics''.
* Winter is one in ''SnowByNight'', on account of being, you know, winter.
* ''Webcomic/WaywardSons'': Saiden, along with his other [[MakingASplash water-based powers]]. Sefani specializes in this, not requiring water to be around like Saiden does.
* In ''MinionComics'', Dingus plans his minion identity "Icepick" around an ice theme, deciding that [[http://www.meetmyminion.com/?p=190 "I'll kill people, but only with weapons that are cold and shit."]].
* In ''OurLittleAdventure'', [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0269.html Emily went for Ice, not Fire.]]
* In ''BobAndGeorge'' [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/000817c Ice Man.]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}'', [[MakingASplash Larima]] is skilled enough at her power of water that she's able to chill it to produce snow. We've been told that the renegade Tiamat is capable of [[FridgeHorror freezing people in large blocks of ice.]] Only those skilled enough at their water power are capable of this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' has Centigrade (who combines this with PlayingWithFire), Fafza Tel ("Winter Willow" in Hungarian), Icicle, El Halcon Blanco ("White Hawk" in Spanish), Flurry (who combines this with BlowYouAway), Snowblind, Snowdrift, Chillblaine, Frost, Frostbite, Sub-Zero, Doctor Zero, Tundra, Iceberg, Lady December, and Snowstorm.
* Johnny Snow from ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' has a homemade FreezeRay.
** The Doctor's own [[TimeStandsStill Freeze Ray]], which doesn't have anything to do with ice or a lack of heat.
* Juniper Taylor in ''Literature/TheDescendants''. Not just water ice, either. She's frozen ''air'' at least once.
* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' characters like Icer, Winter, Bifrost, Nahga, and Frostbite.
** And inventor Mister Cool, who doesn't have the pwoer, but invented the equivalent of a freeze ray.
* Frost from ''TrintonChronicles'' is one of these - he creates and controls ice and cold into every useful tool he can. It also helps that he is immune to cold with the draw back that his powerful icy-aura can't be turned off, only down, makes dating and cuddling rather interesting.
** As a sub-troupe, technically, the ''[[TheFairFolk Fairy Sisters]]'' have a touch of this too, as they control the Ice Maze in the first story arc.
* Ice Princess and Coldstar both have ice-controlling powers in ''LessThanThreeComics''.
* ''DarwinsSoldiers'' has the aptly named experiment "Ice" with, well, ice powers. There are implications that several other experiments have similar powers, but they are never mentioned.
* Hypothermia in ''MetroCityChronicles''.
* Aster in the ''FanFic/AntiClicheAndMarySueEliminationSociety''.
* [[HumanoidAbomination The Cold Boy]] from ''TheFearMythos''. Moreover, he usually targets people who are afraid of being "cold" or [[LonersAreFreaks cut off from others]].
* In [[LordsOfCreationHistoryOfTheUsurpers lords of creation]] Aeron, The White Queen, is the goddess of winter and has this power.
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has Rime, a female superhero from Los Angeles.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Every single [[MakingASplash Waterbender]] in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''. In the latter series' time, it's against the rules for Waterbenders to use ice in the sport of Pro-Bending.
* Danny himself, as well as a tribe of ghost yetis in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''.
* Professor Coldheart from the Dic era ''Franchise/CareBears'' cartoons. Not only was he a blue man with shock white hair, he also used a variety of ice-based science gadgets to freeze people's emotions and make them evil. Except during that one time he made a machine to cover the city in concrete...for some reason. Later aided by his sidekick Frostbite and his aunt, Auntie Freeze.
* Killer Frost in ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]''. "Not necessarily a nice person," indeed.
* Logically, Mr. Freeze's incarnation from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''. More an AntiVillain than proper evil.
* Blitzwing's aptly named "Icy" persona in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' had a villain based on this once. Unlike others, her goal is to ''warm up''.
* Maureen "Permafrost" O'Connor, a one-time ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' character in a VerySpecialEpisode about homelessness, had this as her power.
** She was also a little nuts, but not bad, which is good - she was one of the most powerful metahumans they faced and, if she ''wanted'' to, she could have put the whole city in an ice age in seconds.
* Omi of ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' can adapt his Orb of Tornami Sheng Gong Wu to become this.
* Big Chill in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' and ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'', as well as Articguana and Heatblast ([[NoBiochemicalBarriers when under the influence of a rhinovirus]]).
* Man-arctica from ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'', as well as Barry the Ice Monster, who controls the Frosty Freezy Freeze machine.
** Also, a big fan of Man-artica, who gains ice powers from a super powerful Frosty Freezy Freeze that freezes him alive for the majority of the episode.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLnmWVhrWKk Jack Frost]] from ''The Brollys'', the literal form of winter itself...and he's not a very nice guy for an ice guy.
* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', several ice-based enemies ([[Franchise/{{Batman}} Mr. Freeze]], [[ComicBook/GreenArrow Icicle Jr.]], [[ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} Killer Frost]], and [[ComicBook/TheFlash Captain Cold]]) attack separate cities at once. The League finds this an unlikely coincidence and goes to investigate. It turns out that they were planning to meet up with Icicle Sr. in prison and planning a prison break. In a later episode, when North America is paralyzed by freak ice storms, Batman and The Flash go straight to question the previously established ice villains.
* The [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Ice King]] from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. In addition, [[StartOfDarkness the story behind his powers]] was one of [[TearJerker the most important moments from the series]], signifying a [[WhamEpisode radical change in overall tones]] and forever changing the character's {{canon}}.
** He actually uses the same pun as the trope title at one point. In the episode "Loyalty to the King", after shaving his huge beard, he introduces himself as "an ice king", is misheard as saying "a NICE king", and then he just runs with it until his true identity is revealed when the beard grows back.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SantaClausIsCominToTown'', The Winter Warlock lives up to his name.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' gives us the Windigoes, winter spirits that feed off fighting and hatred. With enough hate, they could bury an entire land in snow and encase all of its inhabitants in ice.
* Sliced Ice from ''WesternAnimation/SkysurferStrikeForce'', due to the freezing abilities of her sword.
* Zane, the ninja of ice from ''Franchise/{{Ninjago}}''. He welds shuriken that freeze things they touch, and his special attack is a giant freeze ray.

* No, really. A real life example in the form of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKT1Wvz3xm0 Wim Hof]]. Skeptical? Many are, but the man really has survived stuff which should be impossible by human standards. He is even called "Iceman".
* 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.
