Slitherhens are enemies in Mother 3, resembling snakes which have chicken heads. These creatures are first seen in Chapter 4 by Lucas and Boney in Sunshine Rainforest and the Railways of the Cross Road Station. Their known attacks are to peck an enemy (Since it's 1/5 chicken) and strangle the opponent to inflict Solidification (Since it's 4/5 snake) These enemies are classified as Chimeras made from the Chimera Lab. They can drop a Fresh Egg 5% of the time, and can be grouped with Ramblin' Evil Mushrooms, or other Slitherhens.

Its battle sound is Battle Sound 10 which falls under Code Numbers 466 for regular attack, 467 for Smaaaash! and 468 for Miss.

Their name is a portmanteau of the words "slither" and "hen".
