Sand Snake (サンドスネーク,Sand Snake?) is an snake enemy of the desert area in Mega Man Zero. The player can know they will surface as they hear sand moving and, in some cases, see a moving mound of sand indicating where they will burst up. The shoot energy spheres in large arcs. They can be an even bigger pain in the "Find Shuttle" mission, when Zero has to get the survivor safely back to base. Luckily Zero can strike the enemy's shots and keep the survivor safe.
