The Snow Flinx is a pre-Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Ice biome. It is very susceptible to knockback, and when hit, will tumble over and fly backwards.


  • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Although only able to spawn in the Ice biome, Snow Flinxes have a lower chance to spawn on Snow Blocks, Ice Blocks, and Thin Ice than on other blocks.
  • The Snow Flinx will repeatedly hit a closed door in its path, but it is unable to open it.


  • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Due to the reduced spawn chance on Snow, Ice, and Thin Ice, players may encounter more Snow Flinxes around Underground Cabins, as these are primarily made of Boreal Wood.
    • It is also a good idea to look at the borders of the Ice biome, as Flinxes are more likely to spawn due to the lack of Snow, Ice, and Thin Ice in other biomes.


  • The Snow Flinx bears a striking resemblance to the Topi, an enemy from the 1984 video game Ice Climber, specifically the American and European censored sprite of the Topi.
  • The Snow Flinx has the fourth least knockback resistance, the third being the Slimer without its wings, and the first being a tie between Pinky and the Golden Slime(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).
    • Because of this, weapons like the Slap Hand and Golem Fist can knock it back enormous distances.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Snow Flinx: "A strange, round furry mammal with an unusually large, protruding nose. They are extremely lightweight."


  • Desktop 1.4.4:
    • Snow Flinxes can now consistently spawn on Ice/Snow. Previously, was incapable of spawning on Snow or Ice under most conditions.
    • Changed the drop rate of Flinx Fur, from 50% chance to drop 1-3, to 100% chance to drop 1-2 (a 50% overall increase). The Expert drop rate has changed from 90% to 100% to drop 1-3.
