Vegetables (Ice Climber)
Vegetables are items from the Ice Climber series.
The vegetables originated from the game Ice Climber. If the player collects all the vegetables that appear in a level, they are awarded a bonus. In Vs. Ice Climber, an additional set of vegetables was added to go along with the increased amount of stages.
Though vegetables themselves do not appear in the game, the eggplant is used as the symbol for the Ice Climbers.
The vegetables appear on Summit, complete with a new 3-D look. They can be used to replenish characters' health. They also have a unique sound effect from the game Ice Climber when being eaten.
The Ice Climbers' goal is to climb peaks. Just below each peak is a bonus stage where these bonus items appear in this order: eggplant, carrot, cabbage, cucumber, corn, turnip, pumpkin, Chinese cabbage, potato, and mushroom. You'll also get points for grabbing the condor at the peak after collecting the veggies. Why vegetables? That's a mystery for the ages.
In addition to the vegetables' returning role on Summit, the Eggplant is a Support Spirit that can be purchased from Timmy and Tommy's.
