“Hey! After burning, I have to freeze?!! Aaah! What’s going on with this game?! Is this some kind of cruel experiment? Anyone else would’ve given up by now!!”

Wario being hit by the triggering enemy Yukimaru
, becoming Frozen Wario
Frozen Wario (not to be confused with Snowman Wario), known as Ice Skatin' Wario in Wario Land 3, is one of Wario's many transformations in the Wario Land series of games. When in contact with the breath of a Yukimaru, Brrr Bear, or Yeti, Wario immediately becomes frozen solid and sent skimming backwards, until he hits a wall. Although a usual inconvenience, he can slide through spikes and other obstacles. In Wario Land 4, the transformation is mainly of little use to the player and it is used more as a form of annoyance, or to waste time when the switch is hit. They are mainly seen in the levels 40 Below Fridge and Fiery Cavern.

- The official Japanese archive for Wario Land 3 and games' manual lists Ice Skatin' Wario as a new ability, when it was previously seen in Wario Land II. However, this may be because it did not originally have artwork in Wario Land II.
