An Ice Person / Western Animation

Go To
A rarely noted side effect of this trope is the ability to just be chill.

  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic 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.
    • "Power Ponies": The Masked Matterhorn creates a Slippery Skid that neatly decommissions three henchponies.
  • In My Little Pony 'n Friends, King Charlatan could fire cold beams from his eyes. By using a machine to amplify his power, he could freeze the entire world.
  • The New Adventures of Superman: In "The Abominable Iceman", the eponymous beast uses his ice powers to freeze Hawaii, including freezing a volcano solid.
  • Zane, the ninja of ice from Ninjago. He wields shurikens that freeze things they touch, and his special attack is a giant freeze ray.
  • Rankin Bass Jack Frost has the title character, of course, but also a whole kingdom of them living in the clouds, whose job is Painting the Frost on Windows (and everywhere else). Included are Father Winter, their ruler; Snip, who personally cuts each snowflake; the Snow Gypsies, who deposit them on Earth; the Slush Sisters; etc.
  • In Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town, The Winter Warlock lives up to his name.
  • Shadow Raiders has an entire planet of Ice People Insectoid Aliens; Planet Ice.
  • Sliced Ice from Skysurfer Strike Force, due to the freezing abilities of her sword.
  • Speed Buggy and his teenage pals deal with the aptly named Professor Snow and Madam Ice, two megalomaniacs who want Tinker to program their ice robots in a bid for world conquest.
  • Maureen "Permafrost" O'Connor, a one-time Static Shock character in a Very Special Episode 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.
  • Sapphire from Steven Universe, juxtaposed to her counterpart Ruby having power over heat. Sapphire can turn a motel room into a meat locker or Rose's Garden into a winter scene in a matter of minutes.
  • On Wander over Yonder, Lord Dominator starts off with the power of lava. She gets the power of ice following Peepers' attempt to freeze her and her ship.
  • Possibly the most common power in Winx Club: besides the most common user Icy, we have Belladona of the Ancestral Witches, background character Alice (or so we're told), Aurora of the Major Fairies of Earth, and Aurora's army the Artic Fairies.
  • Omi of Xiaolin Showdown can adapt his Orb of Tornami Shen Gong Wu to become this.
  • In the first episode of Young Justice, several ice-based enemies (Mr. Freeze, Icicle Jr., Killer Frost, and 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.
  • Snow Miser from The Year Without a Santa Claus rules the North and wants the whole world to be cold, in contrast to his brother, Heat Miser, who's...basically the opposite of all that.
    They call me Snow Miser! Whatever I touch
    Turns to snow in my clutch!
    Ha ha...I'm too much.
  • Blossom of The Powerpuff Girls is a heroic example, as her special power is ice breath.
  • Mixels: Every member of the Frosticon tribe has something along these lines.
