Trivia

  • Snowdown Showdown event skins were also released along side Sugar Rush and Toy Box themed skins, however these themes has since deviated from the Snowdown Showdown theme into their own separate thematics.
    • Sugar Rush is connected with the Snowdown Showdown universe due to Dark Candy Fiddlesticks Dark Candy Fiddlesticks living in the Winterlands of the larger Poro King domain.
    • In 2019, all traditional Snowdown skins were replaced with Sugar Rush skins.

However, Legend of the Poro King returned as a seasonal Featured game mode.[1][2]
