Popo and Nana, better known as the Ice Climbers, are two young children who love to climb mountains. They mainly climb the Infinite Glacier, as it can go on for ages, and the two like a challenge. They usually assist each other in climbing the mountains, and they both defeat the enemies that rest on those mountains. Although the Ice Climbers have only had a single game, they have made many recent appearances in other series, such as the Super Smash Bros. series. There is also a third Ice Climbers named Lolo, but rarely appears and therefore is considered not to be part of the team.
The Ice Climbers will appear as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Adventure. They are playable in both Adventure and Classic Mode. The Ice Climbers will appear in World 8: Icicle Mountain, and the two will be the sole playable characters in that world. However, they are not teamed up like in Melee, but instead they will fight alone. However, if one loses a life, or finishes a level, the other takes over for that turn.
The Ice Climbers will be appearing in the upcoming game Balloon Bomber as main characters. Not much else is known, but they are confirmed to be going to Balloonberg Mountain.
The Ice Climbers are once again dealt with the evil King of the Arctic, Yetosa. They must conquer vast levels on the Wii version which include new enemies, as well as collecting food items for health on their journey! The game is 3D, and the Ice Climbers are portrayed in their look from Super Smash Bros. , and have multiple different outfits to wear and obtain.
Alone in the Mountains
The Ice Climbers will once again do what they do best in Ice Climber 2. Not much is confirmed as of now.
They are they only playable characters in the Wii U game, Ice Climbers Blizzard. They climb some new mountains at Mt. Winter Resort, make some new friends. A blizzard roles in, and they get into a race to get to the top first!
The Ice Climbers are now met with a new antagonist named Yetosa, who controls the Arctic and has split up the five Golden Herbs into different areas. It's up to Nana and Popo to retrieve them, as without them, the people in the Icicle Village will fall sick! Once they have went through the 5 worlds and retrieved all of the Golden Herbs (with a few extra items of course!) the Ice Climbers must face Yetosa, who is in his most frosty state and has turned the Icicle Village into a burning wasteland. Once defeated, they save their family and the other villagers, as well as cure the new illness with the Golden Herbs.
