From the Super Mario Wiki
Ice Snifits are enemies who inhabit the frozen palace of Joke's End in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They look like regular Snifits, but are dressed in an eskimo parka to keep out the cold. Outside of battle, Ice Snifits can attack the Mario brothers from a distance by spitting a chunk of ice high into the air: if the icy projectile lands on Mario or Luigi's head, the battle will start.
Ice Snifits attack by spitting multiple snowballs out of their mouths, which can be avoided by jumping over them. They can also spit a chunk of ice that slides slowly on the ground toward the target; the Mario brothers can counter this attack with their Hammers. Sometimes, two Ice Snifits can team up and attack both brothers at the same time. Like most enemies in Joke's End, Ice Snifits are weak against the Firebrand technique, and may flee from battle if their hoods are set on fire.
