- Played by: Feng Shaofeng
- Awesome Moment of Crowning: Gets one after Shi's death.
- Chick Magnet: Two of the female main characters fall all over themselves for him, and he seems to be the Ice Kingdom's most sought-after bachelor.
- The Dutiful Son
- Heroic BSoD: Suffers one after Li Luo and Shi die.
- Undying Loyalty: He inspires this in other people without even trying.
- The Wise Prince
Ying Kong Shi
- Played by: Ma Tianyu, Bian Cheng (as a child)
- Awesome Moment of Crowning: Got one at the start of his brief reign as Ice King.
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: He dies in Ka Suo's arms.
- Eye Color Change: One of his blue eyes turns red after he develops his fire powers. To hide this he starts wearing an eyepatch. Note that this is when he also becomes King, so this would definitely be an Eyepatch of Power.
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The Ice Tribe have Icy Blue Eyes, the Fire Tribe have Red eyes, and the Ice-Fire Tribe, as seen on Yuan Ji, have yellow-gold eyes. In the last arc of the series, after Shi becomes Li Tian Jin, his eye color alternates between red and gold - probably depending on how much he's currently influenced by either side.
- The Evil Prince: Though not entirely by choice.
- Guile Hero
- Hollywood Genetics: He's half Ice-Fire Tribe, a quarter Ice Tribe, and a quarter Mermaid, yet his natural looks are fully Ice. Given his shapeshifter abilities, this could be a case of Hide Your Otherness.
- Hyper-Competent Sidekick: During his brief time with Yan Da, playing the role of Yun Fei.
- Ice King: More so than any other character, and this setting has quite a few. (And he's also literally the Ice King for a time.)
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: As Li Tian Jin, he forgets his friendship with Ka Suo and becomes convinced his brother is his enemy.
- Lean and Mean: He is very thin.
- Loners Are Freaks: Grew up without friends - his only occasional companion being Ka Suo - and even later on, prefers to be alone instead of socializing.
- Manipulative Bastard: He very skillfully manipulates everyone around him, be it the brother that he loves, the woman that he maybe likes, or the villains. He's also quite adept at manipulating himself whenever he isn't feeling up to confronting a problem.
- The Stoic
- Thanatos Gambit: He kills himself so he can transfer his powers to Ka Suo.
- The Trickster
- Troll: Quite often given to mischievous behavior. There are certain occasions where it seems he likes to trick people and engineer situations simply for the lolz.
- Undying Loyalty: To Ka Suo. Really undying, too, since he's still loyal to him after he dies. See Sword Spirit Shi.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: In the first few episodes, he's a sweet and unassuming child utterly devoted to his big brother. While he never loses that devotion, he rapidly grows up to become a major anti-hero / anti-villain.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: One of his powers. He uses it to disguise himself as Lan Shang when he plans to kill Flame. Later he disguises himself as Ka Suo, with disastrous consequences.
- Played by: Victoria Song
- Fake-Out Make-Out: When the Healer Tribe's guards come looking for Huang Tuo, Li Luo hides him under the bed then pretends to be making out with Ka Suo so the guards will leave. It doesn't work.

- Please Put Some Clothes On: Shi tells her this when they have an argument while she's having a bath.

- Played by: Kim Hee-sun
- Played by: Madina Memet

- Attempted Rape: Xin Jue almost rapes her. Luckily, Ka Suo arrives in time.
- Bed Trick: Shuo Gang rapes her while pretending to be Ka Suo.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: She's cute, and has difficulty walking without falling. Though her clumsiness is justified; she's a mermaid, and not used to walking.
- The Ditz: Friendly, sweet, and very naive.
- Princess Classic: And the only princess around (Ka Suo and Shi used to have sisters, but they're all killed by the Fire Tribe near the beginning of the story).
Lin Chao/Ice King
- Played by: Shao Bing
Chen Tong/Ice Queen

Feng Tian (Grandma)
- Played by: Cheng Peipei
- Affectionate Nickname: Everyone calls her "Granny", even people who aren't related to her.

- Voluntary Shapeshifting: One of her powers.
- Played by: Zhang Ziwen
- Played by: Wang Yu
Old Ice King

- Sadistic Choice: A mild example. While he's dying, he orders Lin Chao to save his life by marrying Lian Ji. When his son protests, he asks if staying faithful to Chen Tong is more important to Lin Chao than his father's life.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: When he forced his son to marry Lian Ji, he caused Lian Ji's anger and bitterness, gave Flame a reason to hate Ice Tribe, and set in motion the events that would cause the series' plot.

- Played by: Tie Zheng

- Played by: Wang Duo
- Played by: Li Haohan
- Jerkass: Tries to kill Yue Zhao, and allows several people — including his own son — to go on a wild goose chase that would probably get them killed, while all along he has the thing they're looking for.
- No Immortal Inertia: A downplayed example. As soon as the ice crystal's taken from him, he becomes a senile old man. He doesn't age to death because he didn't have the crystal long enough.
