Topi are common enemies in Ice Climber. They walk around and if they find find broken blocks they repair them with ice. In the American and European versions, Topis are round yetis with white fur coats, but were originally blue seals in the original Japanese release. This change was likely done in response to the controversy of seal hunting at the time.[citation needed] Both Vs. Ice Climber and the Family Computer Disk System port retain Topi's overseas design.

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Topis reappear in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and they can be found in the Adventure Mode walking around on the Icicle Mountain stage, where the fighter can kick them off the screen. Topis are usually seen with Freezies, which could be based on how Topis use ice to patch holes in Ice Climber.

Like in Ice Climber, Topis are round yetis in the western version and seals in the Japanese version. Topis also appear as a collectible trophy, which also reflects this difference.

Other appearances[edit]

Topis also appear as enemies that Popo has to pound with his hammer in the WarioWare: Twisted! microgame Ice Climber. Like in Super Smash Bros. Melee, their appearance differs between Japanese and International versions. They are also seen in 8-Bit Hero, a microgame in WarioWare: Touched!. When the player succeeds on the microgame's third level, a scene from Ice Climber appears. In this case, Topis are seals in all releases of the game.

Topis also appeared in the NES Library section of the Nintendo Switch Online trailer included in the September 13 Nintendo Direct. Despite it being released in English, the footage depicts the Topis in the Japanese version of the game.
