Polar Bears appear in the The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! in the episode, Koopa Klaus. Koopa Klaus has a run-in with one after being defeated by Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode, "Koopa Klaus." Polar Bears are also implied to inhabit the Land of Ice, as Mario warned Luigi that he might get eaten by one if he waited around instead of coming along with Princess Toadstool and himself.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee's Adventure Mode, Polar Bears patrol horizontal platforms on the Icicle Mountain stage. On rare occasions, they may appear from Party Balls, but can easily be knocked off the screen with a few hits or one strong hit. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Polar Bear appears once again, in the form of a stage gimmick. On the Summit, the Polar Bear will occasionally stand on the top of the stage, causing it to sink into the water. This will allow a fish to jump out of the water, and attack the players who are running in the water. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, even though the Ice Climbers are not playable, Polar Bears appear as enemies in Smash Run mode, where they attack by ground-pounding.
A cameo appearance from a Polar bear is also seen in Art Style: PiCTOBiTS as one of the pictures formed.
