Polytopia Wiki

The Mooni is a unit exclusive to the Polaris tribe. However, they can be mind-bent to another tribe using Mind Benders and still have the same characteristics as a Mooni but with a different color scheme. A Mooni will still spread ice tiles even if it has been converted using Mind Benders to another tribe. Mooni cannot attack, and serve only as early-game land freezers. The Mooni has the auto freeze ability.

They are unlocked with the Frostwork technology.

The Polaris tribe starts the game with a Mooni.

Strengths & Weaknesses[]

Moonies are good for:

  • Actively pushing fronts. A Mooni can move and freeze area on the same turn, which makes them able to push the frontlines forward and leave enemy units vulnerable by simultaneously freezing them.
  • Freezing uncontested land. Polaris gains more power with every Ice tile on the map when the Ice Bank is placed. Mooni cannot fight, so if your starting Mooni is still alive, it might be worth walking it around to freeze patches of land between your cities for an extra boost to SPT and to discover each lighthouse.


  • The Mooni is known in some game files as the "Icemaker."
  • Before the Path of the Ocean update, the Mooni had 2 defense and Freeze Area instead of Auto Freeze.
