The Icy Blowhog is a ground-based blowhog that blows cold air at Pikmin. Ice Pikmin and Cyan Pikmin cannot be harmed by their signature attack.

Biology

Many of the Icy Blowhog's organs cannot function if they are too hot. To solve this problem, this type of blowhog has an internal mechanism that functions as a biological air conditioner; heat is removed from the internal organs and released into the skin. Their skin is usually hot to the touch, not too hot for Pikmin that are not Red Pikmin but still hotter than the surrounding environment. The mechanism also means that they can survive in any environment regardless of the temperature of the area. It has even been observed that these are more common in hot areas than cold areas, due to its method of attacks.

Externally, it has the same shape as other ground blowhogs, but with a light blue or cyan snout. Its skin is hotter compared to other types of blowhogs in the same area.

It is believed that this creature is more closely related to the air-based blowhogs than the other ground-based ones. Some speculate that this is the link between air and ground blowhogs, but most disagree. The thread is that Icy Blowhogs are ground-based but still have air-expelling abilities, as opposed to what other ground blowhogs spray. The reason this blowhog cannot float is that the colder air is denser than in air-based relatives.

In Pikmin: The Bulblaxian War, Icy Blowhogs resemble their airborne cousins more so than ground-based ones, appearing similar to Withering Blowhogs that are colored cyan instead of orange and yellow. Although they look like Withering Blowhogs, they are ground-based, using four fins to walk around. They spew out liquid nitrogen that will freeze Pikmin. They are more dangerous than normal due to the fact that there are no ice-resistant Pikmin. One appears in The Temple of Ice, holding the War Memorial.

Notes

Olimar's notes

Sus decrepita congelo

"The withering blowhog uses nitrogen to fly, but if it goes into a cold enough area, the nitrogen will become liquid, thus grounding it. Blowhogs who experience this slowly evolve into icy blowhogs, and they use the liquid nitrogen to freeze prey and predators."

Ship's notes

"Add these onto snow bulblaxes, and green bulborb's random fire doesn't stand a chance. And neither does the shell of my hold."
