The Snowys are based on polar bears. Unlike regular polar bears, however, they walk on two legs. They boast a bulky body with no neck between their heads and torsos, and possess menacing black eyes. Their torsos are dark blue with white chest armor and white belt-like plating around their waists. They also have light blue upper arms and massive white forearms with red joints at their elbow joints and large four-fingered paws with yellow claws. They also have stubby and heavy light blue legs with white armor plating around their ankles and red rims between their legs and pelvis. Lastly, they have oversized jaws, black noses, a blue patch across their faces, and round ears with red inner ears on their heads.
Eggman employed a number of Snowy robots during his second scheme involving Little Planet. They would later be employed by the Artika Egg Army in their facilities in Artika, using their immense strength to lift large crates. One also tried stopping the Freedom Fighters from escaping captivity, but was crushed by Sonic the Werehog.
