Ice dragons, also described as "dragon-shaped ice projectiles", are airborne entities produced by Lord Fredrik's horn in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. One of them first appears in the game's prologue, throwing Donkey Kong Island into a state of perpetual winter as the Snowmads claim the island as their territory.
Lord Fredrik employs ice dragons again to attack the Kongs during the battle in Volcano Dome, using them in two ways. In one of Lord Fredrik's attacks, ice dragons launch from his horn in the background plane and crash down onto the arena to create slippery patches on the ground. When Lord Fredrik is on the same platform as the Kongs, ice dragons can also be sent horizontally towards them and can be avoided either by crouching if their wings are positioned upward, or by jumping over them if their wings are downward.
