Big Snakey (ビッグスネーキー,Biggu Sunēkī) is a giant snake sub-boss found in Mega Man 3. Their bodies seem to make up the entire stage. At certain points in the stage, Mega Man will encounter the "head" of the enemy, and has to destroy it to continue on. The segment that makes up the "floor" of these parts moves and wriggles about up and down which can either disorient the player's line of fire or help them get a clearer shot. Also, the Mega Man III version of it appears to have a smaller lower jaw. Though it is weak to Hard Knuckle, Shadow Blade also works wonders against it.
Big Snakey also appeared shortly in the opening scene of Mega Man 8, being ridden by Snake Man. It can be seen attacking Mega Man by shooting a large flame at him from the mouth.

Petit Snakey (プチスネーキー,Puchi Sunēkī) is a snake enemy, much smaller than the Big Snakey. They are found in Snake Man's stage, and shoot projectiles at Mega Man. Where they will shoot depends on Mega Man's location when they blink.
"Petit" is French for "small".

When it appears at the surface, it attacks with its fire breath or spits fireballs, then returns into the lava. It then jumps from one side of the screen to the other side, dropping fire balls along the way. It can only be damaged in the head. It is weak to Bubble Lead, which deals 4 damage; however, the Ice Slasher is easier to aim and deals 2 damage, which is the same damage as the buster.
