Ice Meteors are objects that appear in Super Mario Galaxy 2. They appear only in the Shiverburn Galaxy in the mission Prince Pikante's Peppery Mood, where they fall from the sky into the lava pond on the Ice Magma Skate Planet, creating ice platforms that Mario (or Luigi) can skate across to the Launch Star at the end of the planet. This is a logical inversion of the earlier half of the planet, which featured meteors raining down on the icy half of the planet. The ice platforms dissipate after a few seconds.

Although the Ice Meteors are necessary to help Mario reach the planet's Launch Star, touching one before it hits the lava freezes Mario, causing him to take damage. The ice platforms the meteors leave behind are identical to the ones created by Ice Mario from Super Mario Galaxy.
