Variant of Pokey

Snow Pokeys[1][2] are enemies that debut in Super Mario 3D World. They are snowman-like Pokeys with icicle-like spikes on their body, a red pail acting as a hat, and a carrot for a nose.

History[edit]

Super Mario 3D World[edit]

Snow Pokeys in Snowball Park

They first appear in Snowball Park, and appear as common enemies in most snow-themed levels after this.

When a Snow Pokey catches sight of the player, it will begin to move towards them. A Snow Pokey can be defeated by hitting its head with a projectile or swiping it with the Tanooki Suit. The segments of the Snow Pokey will turn into snowballs, which can be carried and thrown. If a Snow Pokey is hit with fireballs, snowballs will not appear. Furthermore, a Snow Pokey's segments can be knocked out by tapping them with the Wii U GamePad. If a Snow Pokey's head is tapped when all other segments have been knocked out, it will be defeated. If its head is tapped any time before this, its pail hat will fall off.

Super Mario Maker 2[edit]

Snow Pokeys reappear in Super Mario Maker 2, taking the role of regular Pokeys in snow-themed levels, except they can be jumped on, which reduces them to a single snowball. In addition to retaining their original appearance in the Super Mario 3D World style, as well as in the New Super Mario Bros. U style (albeit with smaller spikes), they receive new designs in the other three styles. In the Super Mario Bros. style, they wear yellow hard hats instead of the red pail; in the Super Mario Bros. 3 style, they wear red knit caps; and in the Super Mario World style, they wear red bobble caps.
