Video games

  • An unlockable minor playable character in Lego Batman: The Videogame named "Yeti" bears a striking resemblance to, and may be, the Snowman.
  • In Batman: Arkham City, inmates can be heard saying 'It's colder than the Snowman's heart'. Whether this is a reference to The Snowman directly or a nickname for Mr. Freeze is unknown.
