A big Snowman

Snowmen[1] are enemies that appear in the Shivering Mountains. They appear as stereotypical snowmen with purple gloves, shoes, and hats. The big Snowmen have red attire, as well as a scarf that the Small Snowmen do not have. They are functionally near-identical to Magons, and like a Magon, they have small and big variants, each of which can be clumsy or faster than normal. Snowmen have all the attacks of the Magon variants before them, though the big Snowman variety does not have the tailspin attack that the Clowns in the Wonky Circus have. Snowmen require three hits to take out, unlike the one that previous Magon variants needed, which all subsequent big Magon variants require as well. Additionally, Snowmen attack slightly faster than the Clowns in the Wonky Circus do.
