Ice the Hedgehog (アイス・ザ・ヘッジホッグ, Aisu za Hejjihoggu?) is a cryogenic hedgehog that has the knowledge of the stars (making him smarter than Tails and Dr.Eggman combined) with psychokinetic, and freezing powers to match (hence the name Ice) and loves adventure. He acknowledges the fact that the Earth is just as cool and calm as he is. He is 16 years old, stands at 100 centimeters (3 ft 3 in), weighs 35 kilograms (77 lbs) and was born in the Snow Palace. Creator Nicky Keeling is generally credited with the creation of the character, a sky blue-furred, sky blue and-peach-skinned, sky blue-eyed, anthropomorphic Arctic hedgehog, who has the ability to freeze anything in his path and possesses the ability curl up into a ball (like a regular hedgehog), primarily to attack enemies.
