Ice Dinos is a large enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack. It is a larger variant of Ice Dice.

Physical Appearance

Ice Dinos is nearly identical to its smaller counterpart, being a large turquoise reptilian creature. It has ten fangs (only four of which are visible under ordinary circumstances), two horns, a tail, and four scales on its back. It has a nose similar to that of a pig, as well as two large shiny blue eyes and a big purple tongue. Unlike Ice Dice, the end of Ice Dinos' tail is purple in the center of it.


Kirby Mass Attack

Ice Dinos, much like Ice Dice, is a stationary enemy that uses the same ice block shooting attack as Ice Dice, but this time, the blocks are roughly three times bigger than the ice blocks its smaller counterpart creates. Thus, they take up more space and are more dangerous. As with Ice Dice, Ice Dinos only appears in Stage 8 of Dedede Resort.

Evidence detailing an non-ice variant of Ice Dinos exists both in Kirby Mass Attack’s memory and within the final game itself. Orange Dinos sprites are buried in the game's code. Huge Star Blocks—which are the same size as the huge ice blocks spat by Ice Dinos—appear rarely in the game, and may have originally been intended to be used as ammunition by the enemy. In the game itself, a skull that greatly resembles an Ice Dinos’ head can be found in the foreground of Stage 1 of Sandy Canyon. Based on this evidence, it seems likely that Star Block-spitting Dinos (and small orange Dice) were intended to appear in this stage.
