Snow appears in Final Fantasy Record Keeper. A standard character, Snow can be recruited as a First Time Reward for completing the Record of the Hanging Edge on Classic difficulty. During the Challenge Event Chasing Hope, Snow is a Tier 3 character acquired at the event's Hanging Edge, Part 1 stage, also on Classic difficulty. Snow has also appeared in Dangerous Beauty as a supporting character.
Snow is a Pulse l'Cie, whose combat role is Physical Attack.
As so many others before him, Snow has been cast as a Monk, albeit one with shades of a Knight. As it is, he is built to deal heavy damage from the front rank as well as to function as a tank; all three physical stats are among the highest in the game. Despite his occupation, Snow cannot use any magical abilities; even though he has Mediguard, pairing him with a strong White Mage will be key to his success in battle. Many of Snow's skills center on the element of ice, which can be an advantage against insects, fire-beasts, and other things that hate the cold.

- Snow couldn't contain his curiosity when he saw a shiny golden toad. But when he tried to pick up the thing, blam! Toad-cursed. The first thing he thought after being toadified wasn't how to turn himself back, but if he could deal with eating flies. Classic Snow.
- This isn't the first Snow who's run into trouble with a rogue flan. Maybe it's just his destiny. In any case, no matter how absurd the circumstances this time, he's still dead serious about stopping his wobbly nemesis once and for all.
