Snake Man is one of the eight Robot Masters from Mega Man 3. He was created by Dr. Light and Dr. Wily to do research on rough terrain, having a lightweight body which enables him to investigate narrow areas. He is eventually reprogrammed by Wily to serve him. True to his snake motif, he is a sly and tenacious individual.
Snake Man mainly fights by jumping the platforms on the arena and firing off his Search Snake, which crawls to the ground and climb walls. The fight is made tougher due to the elevated platforms which give little room to maneuver and dodge Snake Man's jumping. His weakness is the Needle Cannon.
He was partners with Drill Man in the cartoon show.
