Topis are small bipedal creatures that resemble small yetis and their whole body is covered in white fur. They have small legs and small arms that help them move around. The mouth of the Topis resembles a beak. Topis appeared as enemies originally in the game Ice Climber. They would appear from either side of the stage and will try to prevent the Ice Climbers from scaling the mountain. The Topis in Ice Climber could be stunned but they would appear later unharmed. The Topis sometimes will push around a block of ice on the surface to repair the broken blocks that the Ice Climbers destroyed.
 Topi in the Super Smash Bros. games
Topi made their debut in Super Smash Brothers Melee. Topis act as enemies and obstacles on the stages, walking back and forth on the many platforms of Icicle Mountain. Any character who makes contact with them will take damage and knockback. The damage the Topis cause varies on the difficulty the characters are using. On higher difficulties, the Topis will cause more damage. Topis also have the ability to slide across platforms, making them move at a faster pace. Topis sometimes can be seen with Freezies in stage 10 of Adventure Mode. They will also contain trophies when they are KO'd at rare times.
When they appear from a container in Vs. Mode, they can be picked up by using the Z button and thrown at other characters to cause severe damage. The character who is hit by a Topi will take about 30% with very high knockback, enough to KO them at low percenatages. Topis will also disappear permanently once they are thrown. Another strategy is to throw a character at a wandering Topi. Characters that are thrown at Topis will take the same amount of damage as if they made contact with a Topi normally. Topis can also be used as traps when they enter an enclosed area.
Characters are awarded 200 points for every Topi they KO.
 Trophy Description
Topis debuted in the game Ice Climber, shuttling ice with which to repair in the floor. They were kept really busy, as Nana and Popo constantly cracked floors with single strikes of their ice hammers. Despite the monotony of their chilly work, these creatures never slacked off for an instant.

 Version difference
The original version of Melee contained a seal form of Topi like that of the Japanese version of Ice Climber. Since the American version of the game, Ice Climber used the yeti version of Topi, then that version was included into the American version of Melee; similarly, the yeti-like creature appeared in the PAL versions of the game. Unlike other regional differences, the player cannot see the seals if they switch the language of the game to Japanese in the American release. It is believed that the removal of the seals in the first place was due to the controversial topic of seal clubbing, which is a highly volatile topic in North America and Europe.
