Snowball Troopers[1] (also known as Snowball Gnorcs) are Gnorcs that can be found in Ice Cavern. They are green in color and are similar to Skiing Gnorcs. Snowball Gnorcs will run after Spyro and throw snowballs at him. They can be defeated by charge or flame, and make the sound of jingle bells when knocked down. Sometimes, Spyro will find he can charge at their snowballs to avoid taking a hit.

Snowball Gnorcs' uniforms consist of a tan hat, matching moccasins, and a belt with a wooden canister for supplies. Sometimes mistaken to be Goons in disguise, Snowball Gnorcs can be distinguished from Goons by their lighter coloring and markedly bolder disposition.
