Wario with two Icicle Mites
“There are places in the ice caves that are too high to jump to! In those areas, why not try to use the Icicle Mites somehow? It looks like their pointy heads might just stick right into the floor!”
Spriteling, Wario World

Icicle Mites are large icicle-like enemies that appear in the game Wario World. They are found in the cave portions of Shivering Mountains.

They resemble large, walking icicles with eyes, and can only hurt Wario if he jumps on their single sharp point. They are weak to Wario's punches and can be used as stepping stones. If Wario stuns one and performs a Piledriver on it, the Icicle Mite embeds itself into the ground, where it remains as a step for Wario to climb up to higher ground. However, the effect is temporary, as the Icicle Mite will explode after fifteen seconds of being stuck in the ground.
