Yeti Loves Ice Spikes Growing Out of His Skin, Apparently

Minjun Kim

What does that even mean, having ice spikes grow out of the skin?   Biologically speaking, I mean.

Is one's skeleton made of ice too?

I wonder if Frozen's Marshmallow is partly an inspiration for this trend.

Or maybe it comes from Star Trek's Mugato, the original spike-backed ape-beast:

Or Doomsday?

Oh also Ice-Hulk.

I mean, it's not totally brand new. Spikes have been growing out of yeti's back for a while now - as you can see: here, here, here, here, here, here (Winx Club), & in last year's Lara Croft game.

But there seems to be a definite spike in popularity.  Without further ado, here are a bunch more examples I found that stuck out at me:

Royal Dunlop

Fil Barlow
Dyana Wang

Hyunseok LEE

Defender of Texel (2013):

Dungeon Fighter Online (2010):

Kymera Keeper (2012):

 Tiny Monsters (2013):

A Lenda Do Herói (2016):

Has regular yetis

But the big boss got lots of sprouting ice back-spikes


Even Snow Trolls are getting backsicles.
