Petit Snakey is a snake robot that also functions as part of a security system. It is a smaller variant of the larger robot Snakey. They are enemies that originate from Mega Man 3 from Snake Man's stage and reappear in Mega Man III and Mega Man: The Wily Wars.
Petit Snakey will fire a projectile that passes through solid objects in the direction of the player every few seconds, after performing a blinking animation. It will fire at the player if the player is in front of it, but will cease firing if the player is above it, below it, or behind it.
Petit Snakey will not turn to face the player if they get behind it, and will continue to look in its facing direction. The enemy is affected by gravity and can be pushed or moved by certain level objects.
- Although Snakeys are usually more commonly associated with Snake Man, they have also been associated with Buster Rod G. as well.
