Snowballs are enemies in Snow Tale. They make a later appearance as non-playable characters in Drop Wizard and an enemy in the browser version.


Snowballs have a circular body which is separated into two halves by colour. The top half is white and displays the snowball's facial features: a pair of slit black eyes with a bit of red at the top, and long ovular pink cheeks. The snowball's circular orange hands are attached to this portion. Blue snowballs in Snow Tale will be seen holding a light blue snowball, unless they have thrown it.

The bottom half of the snowball is coloured either red or blue, depending on its type. Two round orange feet can be seen under this half, at the bottom.

Snow TaleEdit

In Snow Tale, snowballs are enemies to the penguin. Red snowballs make the first appearance in level 1, and blue snowballs are first encountered in level 5. Any direct contact causes the penguin to lose a heart. A snowball is killed when it is bumped into after being frozen or getting in the way of another enemy that has already been bumped into by the player. Dead snowballs leave behind some form of ice cream.

Red snowballsEdit

Red snowballs walk on the platforms they are placed on. If they reach the edge of a platform that has visible ground below it, they sometimes fall to the ground, depending on the level. In other instances, red snowballs will turn when they reach the end of a platform, even if there is visible ground they can fall onto. They are not affected by hazards and may sometimes appear on platforms with spikes on them.

Blue snowballsEdit

Blue snowballs are larger than red snowballs and carry a snowball in one hand. Upon seeing the penguin, they toss their snowball, causing it to dash wildly around for a brief moment. This snowball can freeze enemies as well as the blue snowballs themselves. Once their snowball has been launched, it does not respawn unless the penguin dies.

Drop WizardEdit

iOS versionEdit

A red and blue snowball accompany Teo as he seeks Kardius in Drop Wizard. They mostly make their appearance in the end cutscenes of an act. The two snowballs are often seen caught up in situations such as getting stuck in webs. They also sometimes make suggestions or call out where Teo is to go next. Red and blue snowballs make up the cheering audience seen at the end of a level and when a large combo is attained.

Browser versionEdit

Only red snowballs appear in the browser version of Drop Wizard and are first found on level 7. Red snowballs will walk back and forth once on a platform before falling off the side onto the platform below. They may occasionally break into a sprint whether on sight of the player or not and, like all enemies in Drop Wizard, leave a pickup upon death.

Super Cat Tales series Edit

Super Cat Tales Edit

A red snowball appears in every village as a helper seller in Super Cat Tales. The shopkeeper snowball wears a red cap and sits in a stall with a red-white roof.

A blue snowball appears at the Windy Harbor as a fisherman and the gray snowball appears there near the fish drying rack.

Super Cat Tales 2 Edit

The shopkeeper snowball from Super Cat Tales also appears in this game, where this time, he sells items to the cats to aid them on their quest to defeat the Tin Army. Unlike in Super Cat Tales 1, his shop can be accessed at any time in the items menu when a desired item has not been unlocked yet.

In Hikari Town, a gray snowball with a yellow cap, who works at the power plant, appears next to a Torotoki villager near the bus stop and claims that the mayor has locked the entrance, as the War of the Tin Army has started. In the same town, a blue-capped gray snowball appears at the bus stop near the Hikari Town Hall and a capless gray snowball at the Hikari Town Hall hints the cats of an elevator that leads to the Mayor's Office. Another instance of snowballs appearing in Hikari Town is in the Hikari Town Park, where a blue-capped gray snowball appears next to a balloon stall and a Ferris wheel telling an acorn townee that the ride is out of order and the acorn guy replies to the technician that his son wanted to ride the Ferris wheel. A blue snowball appears in Ramal Town sitting on the carpet next to the pyramid, and he will play a flute melody to calm the spirits of the desert down for 5 coins, allowing the cats to explore the pyramid more safely. Snowball knights appear in Guldburg and a caped red snowball knight named Kallio trusts Alex and McMeow to bring him the key from the Ancient Mine that he lost, but when McMeow told Alex to give him the key, Kallio then regrets trusting them. Kallio and the item seller are the most significant in this game.

Other appearancesEdit
