History[edit]

Super Mario 64/Super Mario 64 DS[edit]

In Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS, they are found in Cool, Cool Mountain and Snowman's Land. They jump up and down, and can also throw snowballs at the player. They can be defeated by circling around them until they disappear. In the remake, Wario can defeat them with a punch and Yoshi can melt them with his fire breath while using a Power Flower.

In Super Mario 64 DS, as with many of the enemies, their look is updated, though their attack pattern remains unchanged. They now have a zigzag mouth, wear a blue bucket for a hat and have a solid yellow mitten instead of a yellow one with a single pink stripe. They also die by spinning until they shrink, instead of falling on their side and shrinking.

Mario Pinball Land[edit]

In Mario Pinball Land, they appeared in the Frosty Frontier Stage. Unlike their other appearances, they do not throw snowballs, and unlike many other enemies in the game, they cannot be defeated simply colliding with Mario.

Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

In the Mario Kart series, Mr. Blizzards usually appear as obstacles, but are often replaced with generic Snowmen.

Mario Party series[edit]

Mario Party 3[edit]

Mr. Blizzard's first appearance in the Mario Party series was Mario Party 3. In this game, they appear as a battle partner. As a battle partner, Mr. Blizzard has 3 HP and 1 attack point. His special ability allows him to always hit the farthest target.

Mario Party 4[edit]

In Mario Party 4, they appear in the minigame Mr. Blizzard's Brigade, now with a giant version which throw bigger snowballs.

Mario Party 5-7[edit]

In Mario Party 5, Mario Party 6 and Mario Party 7, Mr. Blizzards appear as the Mr. Blizzard Capsule. When an opponent lands on the space with the orb, a Mr. Blizzard falls on the player, causing them to lose all their orbs.

Mario Party Advance[edit]

One Mr. Blizzard appears in Mario Party Advance, at the Ice Stadium. He is practicing his pitches when the player arrives, and he challenges the player to hit a home run. The player has five chances to hit a home run, and if this is done, Mr. Blizzard rewards the player with the Gaddget Mini Slugger. The ending states that he is practicing throwing a fastball in the minor leagues.

Mario Party 8[edit]

In Mario Party 8, Mr. Blizzards appear in the minigame Alpine Assault. Their only purpose is to obstruct the player.

Mario Party 9[edit]

In Mario Party 9, only two Mr. Blizzards appear, larger than their past incarnations. They are in the minigame Snow Go, in which they attack the player by tossing snowballs at them. Getting hit by a snowball results in the player being frozen. In the Museum, a constellation called Cold Guy based on the snowmen can be purchased.

Mario Party: Island Tour[edit]

In Mario Party: Island Tour, Mr. Blizzard is the third boss to be fought in the Bowser's Tower mode (being faced off against on the fifteenth floor). He hosts the minigame, Mr. Blizzard's Snow Slalom, where the player rolls into him with snowballs. Meanwhile, Mr. Blizzard throws damaging snowballs at them.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star[edit]

Mizzter Blizzard, a Mr. Blizzard wearing a Royal Sticker, appears as the boss of World 4 of Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and also marks the species' Paper Mario debut.
