Snowball is the name of Claude Frollo's horse in the 1996 Disney film The Hunchback of Notre Dame and the secondary antagonist . He is mostly seen to mirror Achilles, the horse who is owned by the film's secondary hero, Phoebus.
Very little is known about Snowball, except that he appears to be a breed of draft horse, built as muscular, and hulking. He is loyal to his master, Frollo, however, can not be considered truly evil as he does not have a human-based personality like other animals in Disney films are sometimes seen to have.
