Search Snake is Snake Man's signature weapon from Mega Man 3. It is featured in Mega Man Maker since its 1.0.0 version.

The user can fire up to three snake-like missiles that perform a parabolic arc when fired. Upon falling, the snakes quickly crawl across floors and can travel up or down walls. However, the snakes cannot travel underneath terrain and despawn if they approach the underside of terrain.

The snakes are small so they can damage enemies below the player and pass through tight gaps. Water affects the initial arc of the weapon when shot and makes a snake travel higher, wider and slower: the water level also influences the length of the arc. Outside water, Search Snake's arc when fired outside water is narrow and fast and falls one tile away from the player horizontally on even terrain. The snakes can travel across one tile wide gaps and as a result, will not turn at the edge of terrain before the gap.

Similarly to its appearance in Mega Man III, Search Snake can destroy Spines.


  • Search Snake cannot descend to lower floors. WreckingPrograms confirmed that this was unintended but has not prioritized fixing it due to resulting glitches that could break the game.
