Dodging the Attacks

Dodging Snow King Attacks

Upon starting the battle with the Snow King, you will immediately see purple markings on the ground. The Snow King will lob snowballs and Freezies at these marked areas, so steer clear of these purple markings to evade the Snow King's attacks. You can also use your Special Dash to quickly dodge attacks.

Watch Your Temparature

How to Beat Snow King

Getting hit by one of the Snow King's attacks will decrease your Mii character's temperature. You can view your temperature gauge in the upper-left corner of the screen. If your temperature gauge falls below 0, you will fail the battle and must restart the fight.

Taking Down the Crystals

The first step to defeating the Snow King is to get rid of his arms by taking out the crystals in the arena. You can spot a total of four crystals around the room, two of which emit a beam of light. Run to one of the platforms in front of the crystals and press the A Button near one of the Bob-ombs.

Launch Bob-ombs at both of the glowing crystals to get rid of the Snow King's arms. If the Bob-ombs are destroyed or if you miss your shot, wait a few moments for the Bob-ombs to respawn.

Damaging the Snow King

After getting rid of both his arms, the Snow King will start launching large snowballs at you. After the first snowball has been launched, it will leave behind a mound of snow on the ground. Stand on the snow mound and Press the A Button.

Duff Shot Snow King

You can now use Duff Shots to deflect the second snowball back at the Snow King. If successful, you will destroy the bottom segment of the Snow King, leaving him with only his torso and head.

After destroying the bottom segment of the Snow King, he will regrow his arms, and you will need to get rid of them again. However, this time you need to hit all four crystals in the room with Bob-ombs.

Once you hit all four crystals, you again need to deflect another snowball at the Snow King by waiting for it to launch the first snowball and hitting the second snowball with a Duff Shot.

Finshing Off the Snow King

Beating Snow King

After successfully destroying the Snow King's torso he will be left with a head and two floating arms. During the final stage of the battle, all the crystals around the room will be shielded in ice, and you can no longer hit them with Bob-ombs.

Instead of aiming for the crystals, you can immediately start deflecting the Snow King's snowballs by following the previous steps. Once you successfully deflect one last snowball, you have officially defeated the Snow King and will receive your Platinum Badge.
