For the trophy, see Topi (trophy)
Topis are about the size of Jigglypuff. They resemble small yetis and their whole body contains white fur. They have small legs and small arms that help them move around. The mouth of the Topis resembles a beak.
Topis act as enemies and obstacles on the stages. Topis walk back and forth on the arena. Any character who makes contact with Topi will take damage. The damage the Topis cause varies on the difficulty the characters are using. On higher difficulties the Topis will cause more damage. The Topis have two different kind of movements. Most of the time Topis will walk normally on a stage. The Topis also have the ability to glide on a stage. Topis move at a faster pace when they glide. Characters will have a harder time to dodge Topis that are gliding. Topis sometimes can be seen with Freezies in stage 10 of Adventure Mode. They will also contain trophies when they are KO at rare times. They can be picked up by using the Z button and can be thrown at other characters to cause damage. The character who is hit by a Topi will take about 30% damage and has the possibily of dying at low percentages.
Characters will be awarded 200 points for every Topi they KO.
The original version of Melee contained a seal form of Topi. Since the American version of the game Ice Climber used the yeti version of Topi, then that version was included into the American version of Melee. The seal version Topi does not appear in the American version of Melee at all; nor does the seal trophy of Topi appear in Melee.
