The ability appears to be a small part of her creativity as it allows her to temporarily encase monsters in blocks of ice (an example in the series is of the Scyphozoa in Vertigo) and making ice as a make shift shield from a Krab as seen in the second part of X.A.N.A. Awakens. This is used to reach higher ground or to destroy monsters easily as a petrified monster needs just one or two hits to be destroyed. She mostly uses this part of her powers in the video game but not so much for the series. In the game, the petrified monsters are easier to destroy.
