Ice lurkers are made almost entirely out of ice, with the exception of a green necklace and yellow eyes. It is unique from other lurkers, bearing almost no biological traits aside from its eyes. It is made out of straight, blue-tinted ice, and can protrude spikes from its body during offensive mode.
They attack by charging at their opponent after making a growling sound and forcing ice spikes to protrude from their body. They will attempt to charge into Jak. They can sometimes be a nuisance, having spikes which will harm Jak if he attempts to attack them, and they spawn in slippery ice, making it hard to control Jak's movement. However, there are two factors which make it a somewhat easy enemy to defeat:
- They can only run in a straight line.
- Once they have made their charge, they will retract their spikes, requiring only one melee attack to destroy.
To defeat them, you can stand on higher ground and wait until they have retracted their spikes.
Alternatively, try waiting until they charge, then simply move to the side. Once they have retracted their spikes, you can finish them with a punch to the back; shattering the ice.

ice-monster*, presumably standing for "ice lurker" and "ice monster", and thus used over "ice cube" as the most appropriate names.
