Great Characters Wiki

The Ice Climbers (アイスクライマー Aisu Kuraimā?), are the pair of playable protagonists from the game Ice Climber, released in the pre-Super Mario Bros. era of NES games, as well as the Smash Bros series. 

Why They Rock

  1. The two represent the NES era of Nintendo's history in the Smash Bros. series, with a new simple yet highly-detailed design that is nearly identical to their original 8-bit counterparts.
  2. They are a brother-and-sister duo that are equally skilled and respect one another.
  3. They are a dual-controlled pair, making them unique compared to the other fighters in Smash. 
  4. They played a huge role in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary.
  5. Their fighting dynamic in Smash forces the player must ensure the safety of not one, but two characters at the same time.
  6. Thankfully, the two will return for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Bad Qualities

  1. Without one another, they equally will be less effective during fighting.
  2. Since they're silent characters in both Smash and their original game, they greatly lack a personality.
  3. Though the two were representatives in Smash Melee and Brawl, they did not return in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U due to technical difficult with the 3DS.


  • The Ice Climbers made their debut appearance in the Super Smash Bros. series, after sixteen years of the release of their original game.
