Snowl is a spherical white owl. It has a purple face, two large yellow eyes, and two large blue crest feathers. It also has tail feathers, stubby wings, and no feet.
Snowl's name is a portmanteau of the words "snow" and "owl," referencing the enemy's design and cold nature.
- Snowl bears some resemblance to the Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards enemy, Frigis, especially in behavior. Snowl has similar attacks to Frigis as well.
