The Snow Balla is a monster that was added in the 1.1.1 Christmas update. He is part of the Frost Legion, which means that he will only spawn if you use a Snow Globe that you get from presents during the Christmas holiday. The Snow Balla is a snowman that throws snowballs that turn into a Snow Block on impact with an object, acting similarly to how an Antlion shoots sand. He drops snow blocks and coins upon death.


  • The snowballs can go through any type of platform.
  • If you are using a lava trap to farm the snow legion, it will take multiple hits for a Snow Balla to die, and in this time it can throw a snowball into the lava so one block is safe. Over time, usually by halfway through the invasion, this renders your lava ineffective. It is recommended to stay alert while farming a Frost Legion invasion.


The title "Snow Balla" is a play on words of the slang word "balla", another word for a gangster or thug. Also, it lingers around "Snow Baller," an appropriate name for this monster.


When killed by a Snow Balla's snowball the game will detect the snowball as a sandball (shot by Antlion's) and will say you were killed by a sandball.
