Search Snake is Snake Man's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man 3 and reappearing in Mega Man III and Mega Man: The Wily Wars. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.0.0.

It lets the user send out up to 3 miniature snake drones in a small arc before they crawl across terrain and up walls. They will despawn upon hitting a ceiling or touching the floor after going down a wall, however. When used underwater, they will arc 4 tiles upwards due to the lower gravity. It will travel across Dust Blocks and Ice Blocks, but not Weapon Blocks marked with it, and the only way to destroy the former two objects is to fire it at point-blank. Search Snake will fall through semi-solid platforms, unlike Bubble Lead. All members of the Spine family are susceptible to this weapon, like Garyoby was in Mega Man III.


  • Search Snake being unable to travel down corners is confirmed to be a bug, as it was capable of doing so in Mega Man 3.
