Physiology

Vanillite heads are covered with something resembling a swirled scoop of vanilla ice cream. Beneath this lies its actual head, which is made of the same icy material as its body. This is also where the face is located. Their eyes have swirled, light blue markings, and dark bluish pupils. They have a dark-bluish mouth, a small body adorned with specks of ice, and stubby limbs.

Gender differences

Special abilities

Vanillite can blow up cold winds as low as -50 degrees. They can create ice crystals and cause it to snow in nearby areas. It sleeps in snow and gains energy from the morning sun.
