The Ice Dragon is a boss that appears in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, later making cameos in Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64, Kirby: Planet Robobot and Kirby Star Allies. In the anime, Kirby of the Stars, he appears as a Demon Beast.
The Ice Dragon is a rotund dragon that can breathe ice; he is coloured in turquoise with a paler blue belly, and also has a set of four blue spikes along his backside. He is seemingly an ancient life form that has survived through a number of ages.
The Ice Dragon makes his debut being a boss faced in the fourth level of the game, the Iceberg. The boss's attacks involve charging in Kirby's direction, causing icicles to fall from the ceiling, and breathing ice on the pink puff. Kirby can use his vacuum breath to suck the icicles up and send them back as ammo against the dragon to damage him. Defeating the boss unlocks the Red Canyon.
Although not appearing in the flesh, the Ice Dragon makes a cameo during the events of these games when the Popstar Artists Ado and Adeleine are fought. When fought, the Ice Dragon retains his ability to breathe ice and charge, but cannot summon icicles. In that attack's place is a new move which has the boss spit out an ice block and send it flying. Defeating the dragon causes him to disintegrate, and Ado will create Sweet Stuff and Adeleine will charge headlong for her final phase but she can be taken out in one hit.
In the pilot, the Ice Dragon appears among the Demon Beasts that invade Dream Land. His design is not changed much. Kirby defeats him with his vacuum breath and copies the Ice ability, freezing a Dark Matter orb.
While the Holo-Defense API is fought, it may create a hologram of the Ice Dragon after the hologram Sphere Doomers are defeated. This hologram retains the attacks his base character performed, and can also throw a cutter blade. In the extra game, the dragon's spikes become arrowheaded, and his belly now has a pattern, and his moves are more aggressive.
