|Iceball did not originate from fanon, and the information on this page may not be entirely accurate to their canon. You may read more about this subject in the context of their canon on the following wiki(s):|
Iceballs are projectiles in the Mario series that are shot by Ice Mario, Penguin Mario, and some enemies such as Ice Bros.. They bounce once off of the ground and shatter on the next landing, giving them less range than fireballs, which bounce continuously.
An enemy hit with an iceball is temporarily frozen in a buoyant block of ice. Players can pick up and throw smaller ice blocks, causing them to slide across the ground and shatter on impact with a wall, defeating the enemy inside. A frozen enemy can also be defeated by Ground Pounding the ice block or jumping into it from below.

Iceballs appear as Luigi's special item in Mario Kart: Turbo Circuit. They act just like Fireballs, only they freeze karts, instead of simply burning them. However, only three (five for Fireballs) can be shot at a time.
Iceballs appear as Luigi's special attack in Mario ehxibition. They are also seen in the Fire and Ice Court.
