This article is from 2017 and somehow outdated. Will be updated soon.
Chizzard Minions are aggressive Creatures, looking like Blizzard Chizzards wearing a blue Holiday Pet Hat that will only appear when being summmoned by a Trog Trap and either the Trog Trap Events "Get to the Capture", "King of the Chill" or "Troggington fights back" are randomly initiated.
They belong to Troggington's Minions, together with other Minion types, and will always be aggressive, even on game worlds set to "peaceful creatures" (a "Pro" world option).
They are not to be mistaken with (possible) Chizzard Spies that will appear during "Ice Spy" events (tier 1-3), since Spies are defensive only instead of aggressive.

Chizzard Minions look a lot like peaceful Blizzard Chizzard pets wearing dark blue holiday hats. But in reality they are significantly larger and always aggressive, and holiday pet hats provided by pet owners can only be red, but not dark blue. Troggington's Minions will not drop their blue colored hats when dying either.
They cannot be encountered roaming any Creativerse game worlds, instead they can only be randomly "summoned" when Trog Traps are placed. Trog Traps can be obtained during the seasonal Christmas event Elfi's Toy Drive that lasts for ca. one month around Christmas.
When killed, Chizzard Minions will sometimes (not very often) drop special Holiday Loot Bags that will contain items and Rescued Toys similar to the content of Reward Holiday Gift Boxes that will spawn after successfully completing Trog Trap Events.
(Possible) Chizzard Spies that will appear during "Ice Spy" events (tier 1-3) are smaller and can either wear colorful top hats or red holiday hats and/or colorful bow ties. Spies never drop any Loot Bags after being defeated.
Chizzard Minions are helpers of Troggington and can randomly be summoned by this seasonal Frost Trog after he has been trapped in either a Medium Trog Trap or Large Trog Trap. There is no way for players to control which type of event will activate.
These aggressive Creatures will appear when a Medium Trog Trap initiates the events "Get to the Capture (Tier 1)" or "King of the Chill (Tier 1)"; or when a Large Trog Trap initiates the events "Get to the Capture (Tier 2)" or "King of the Chill (Tier 2)" or "Troggington fights back".
These events can be started anytime during day and/or night.
(Possible) Chizzard Spies can also only be randomly summoned by Medium Trog Traps and Large Trog Traps, but also with Small Trog Traps, whenever the event type "Ice Spy" (tier 1-3) is being initiated by the Trog Trap/s.
Chizzard Minions cannot be spawned on Mob Spawners (anymore). It might be possible that Mob Spawners will become able to spawn Chizzard Minions in the future though, especially while the Christmas event Elfi's Toy Drive will again take place.
Please note that Mob Spawners are not intended to let you "farm" infinite animal loot. Instead they are Machines that will spawn specific Creatures as a fighting challenge, intended to be used within Adventures created for other players to play.
Creatures spawned on Mob Spawners do not drop any loot and cannot be tamed. However, Adventure creators can provide the first Creature that will be spawned with customary loot that other players will then receive when killing this Creature.
Player-spawned aggressive Creatures cannot be set to "peaceful" on the Mob Spawner. While most aggressive Creatures will automatically be defensive-only if spawned with a Mob Spawner on a game world with the "Pro" world option "peaceful creatures" enabled, event Creatures - which would include Chizzard Minions - have so far always been aggressive when spawned with a Mob Spawner, even on game worlds set to "peaceful creatures" (a "Pro" world option).
(Possible) Chizzard Spies also cannot be spawned with Mob Spawners (anymore), but if this should become possible in the future, they will most likely be peaceful. Perhaps they could be set to "aggressive" on the Mob Spawner in this case though.
Chizzard Minions that appear within a certain proximity around either a Medium Trog Trap or a Large Trog Trap are always aggressive towards player characters and will attack them on sight if they are in a certain range and aren't hindered from reaching said player characters. If they realize that they cannot reach player characters, Chizzard Minions will usually retreat into a "safe" distance.
These Creatures are even aggressive on game worlds with the "Pro" world option "peaceful creatures" enabled. Chizzard Minions cannot be "charmed" by using Arome Chizzard. This Perfume only affects common peaceful green-blue Chizzards in any case.
(Possible) Chizzard Spies on the other hand are defensive Creatures, and such will only defend themselves when being attacked by player characters. They can't be "charmed" either though.
Since these Creatures are not really well visible in the dark aside from their pale color, it is recommended to place Trog Traps into specifically prepared arenas.
In general, these Creatures seem to have the same combat behaviour as Blizzard Chizzards. They flap with their wings and hit player characters with their feet while hovering above the ground, and their special attacks are swoops that will push player characters up and back, sometimes dealing cold damage over time for 3 seconds.
However, Chizzard Minions can deal more damage than Blizzard Chizzards, are tougher to defeat, and their special attack (after flying up, the Chizzard Minion will nosedive towards the player character) will not only send the player character flying backwards and upwards, but can occasionally stun the player character for 3-4 seconds, rendering them unable to do anything during this time.
Like with most types of Creatures, it is recommended to circle a Chizzard Minion while whacking it with a melee Weapon to avoid being hit by it. However, since these Creatures appear during Trog Trap Events, they will often spawn in pairs or groups, sometimes together with other types of Troggington Minions. Because of this, using Explosives like Armor-Piercing Bombs and Explosive Bombs is recommended.
Since update R30 on April 6th 2016 all Creatures can swim, so liquids will not stop them from pursuing or fighting player characters any longer. But Chizzard Minions could still drown when being trapped in/under liquids for too long, even though they seem to be immune to elemental damage dealt by Freeze Bombs, Fire Bombs, Corrupt Bombs, Corrupted Water liquid Lava and the like. However, they can usually be stunned with Stun Bombs and pushed away with Snowcubes and Force Bombs.
Like all other Creatures, Chizzard Minions can climb one or two blocks upwards, but not three blocks or higher without any steps, not even on worlds with low gravity (while your player character can use low gravity to jump up 5 blocks or more). So they can be held back by high walls (probably activated with a Block Phaser), but of course also by fences, wicket gates, doors and the like.
(Possible) Chizzard Spies are different in that they can be killed by 4 hits of any kind of melee weapon, no matter if a Lumite Sword or a simple (indestructible) Twig. They are defensive only, so they will not attack by themselves, but will defense themselves when being attacked by player characters.
Then they will use the same combat abilities as Chizzard Minions and Blizzard Chizzards have - hitting with their feet while hovering above the ground, and occasionally using nosedive attacks. However, their attacks will not stun player characters, but instead can sometimes deal cold damage over time for 9 seconds.
When killed, Chizzard Minions can drop 1-4 stacks of items in their Holiday Loot Bag.
Their Loot Bags can additionally randomly contain:
- 1-5 Basic Health Potions,
- 1-2 Speed Potions,
- 1-2 Health Regeneration Potions,
- 1-2 Freeze Resistance Potions,
- 1-2 Advanced Health Potions,
- 1-2 Crystal Shards,
- 1-2 Infused Crystals,
- 1-2 Fire Bombs,
- 1-2 Freeze Bombs,
- 1-2 Force Bombs,
- 1-2 Basic Extractors,
- 1-2 Advanced Extractors,
- 1-2 Basic Excavators,
- 1-2 Advanced Excavators,
- 1-2 Super Excavators,
- 1-2 Questionable Jerkys,
- 1-2 Blizzard Chizzard Eggs,
- 1-2 Gingerbread Loaves,
- 1-2 Frigid Pies,
- 1-2 Frigid Sandwiches,
- 1-2 Frigid Soups,
- 1-2 Arctek Lanterns,
- 1-2 Grand Arctek Lanterns
- and/or other similar items.
(Possible) Chizzard Spies will never drop any Loot Bags in comparison to that.
