Do you think there can be too many ice characters in a game?

Let's say there are three characters, all use ice and ice type attacks in their moveset as a main/secondary way to fight. Is this too much? What is the limit for ice based fighting characters?

Also let's say the roster of characters is 32 for this.

2 is the limit.

There's really no point in more than one, unless it's for story reasons. Don't be lazy.

What if the playstyles are completely different. Also how do you feel about fire based characters in the same vein?

It's not a "that's too much ice" thing bro, it's a "that's too much of the same power" thing.

You could always just make one of them water.
