Icicle Mountain in Super Smash Bros. Melee
|Home Stage||Ice Climbers|
Players start on wooden and icy platforms and will have to keep on climbing up the stage while fighting. If you remain still you will die as the camera and stage borders actually move up at various speeds over time. It is similar to how Brinstar Escape Shaft works in that you move vertically the entire time to avoid a K.O. Characters with good downward moves and items such as Freezie are very usefull to defeat opponents on this stage. During the climb random Ice Climbers themed monsters also appear on the platforms.
 Character (Dis)-Advantages
Because the stage is fairly small and constantly moving, characters that can disable enemies or have good vertical launch moves will have a major advantage on this stage.
- Mario : Has strong downwards launch power that can easily knock an opponent off the stage.
- Kirby : Has weak vertical moves and speed, this can cause him to fall behind when the camera moves up quickly.
