Rolling Snowball[2] is a mix ability from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Kirby will get this ability if he combines two Ice abilities together. With this, a large amount of snow will develop around Kirby, causing him to do a crushing-force roll, then plow and collect enemies. Not only are they trapped in the snowball, but they also get frozen and pop when the snowball is released.

This ability can be used to get a Crystal Shard in Stage 4 of Neo Star. Strangely, it's used to break through a reddish-brown panel rather than a typical blue panel. This ability's concept would later be reused in Kirby's Return to Dream Land for the Snow Bowl Super Ability.

Kirby forms a giant snowball that engulfs all enemies as it rolls along. When Kirby hits an obstacle or when you press B, the snowball explodes, destroying all the trapped enemies.

  • This ability is used almost exactly like Kirby's Return to Dream Land's Snow Bowl; the only differences are that Kirby can jump with Snow Bowl, the snowball is bigger, and Snow Bowl can roll quickly.
