"It isn't poisonous. Hopefully, anyway..."
— In-battle check

Snakes are enemies in EarthBound Beginnings. They are relatively weak and common, found around Podunk and Merrysville. Unlike snakes in the other games, they cannot poison you. They sometimes drop a Magic Herb when defeated and cannot group up alongside other enemies. There are stronger, upgraded versions of Snakes such as the Red Snake and Rattlesnake.
