Ice Hinox are variants of the standard Hinox, appearing in Age of Calamity.

Age of Calamity

The Ice Hinox is one of the elemental variants of the standard Hinox, with their body engulfed in ice. They have purple skin, a light blue eyeball, and turquoise facial features, distinguishing them from other Hinox. While they generally move and attack similar to a Black Hinox, the Ice Hinox does have its own elemental attacks, including the ability to shoot ice projectiles out of its mouth, which will bounce around the area until they hit a target. Additionally, an Ice Hinox will pound on the ground, sending a ripple of ice, which can freeze nearby enemies.

Ice Hinox have a natural weakness to fire, making them vulnerable to attacks with the Fire Rod. Hitting an Ice Hinox with a direct hit from a Fire Rod will crack its life gauge, making it significantly easier to deplete the gauge and unleash a strong attack.

When defeated, an Ice Hinox may drop a Hinox Toenail, Hinox Tooth, or Hinox Guts. Additionally, the player will receive a Hinox Trophy each time one of these bosses are defeated. These can be used to complete quests or upgrade weapons of the various warriors.
