Icicle is a trap that Nex attacks with in the Nex: Angel of Death fight after Glacies has been killed and Nex reaches around 1,800,800 life points.
Nex stuns a random amount of players, increasing with the size of the team (a maximum of two players in a team of 7), and traps them with this icicle. Smaller icicles also appear in a 5x5 range around the targeted players, damaging and stunning anyone apart from the targeted player in this range. Players directly standing next to the imprisoned player take 5000 typeless damage; players standing farther away take 1666.
After the icicle imprisons a player, they are prevented from attacking, their defensive abilities (aside from Anticipation, Freedom and Preparation) are disabled and put on cooldown, and Surge, Escape, Barge, and Bladed Dive are put on a 20 second cooldown.
The trapped player also starts taking bleed damage inside the icicle, which can be stopped by destroying it.

- patch 20 July 2020 (Update):
- Using an emote during Nex: Angel of Death's icicle attack no longer negates typeless damage
- patch 25 March 2019 (Update):
- Icicle health reduced from 100,000 to 20,000. Bleed damage is dealt inside the icicle after six seconds have passed upon appearing, not after it despawns.
