Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze[edit]

In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Skowl, the Startling uses Icy Spike Balls during the first phase of his battle. While flying above one end of the battle arena, Skowl creates Icy Spike Balls and throws them at the other end. Upon landing on the platform, they start rolling slowly in the opposite direction, across the arena. In this game, they are indestructible, but can be safely bounced on with Cranky Kong's cane.

Yoshi's Woolly World / Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World[edit]

In Yoshi's Woolly World and Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, Icy Spike Balls are summoned by Snifberg the Unfeeling. They roll down towards the Yoshi, damaging him upon contact. They cannot be destroyed.
