Kirby in Snake form in Cold Cave

Snake is a regular yarn transformation, that Kirby and Prince Fluff undergo in Kirby's Epic Yarn. The snake form is only activated when tight passageways need to be accessed, and the transformation automatically takes place while pressing towards the opening of the passageway.[1] The Cold Cave area of Grass Land introduces the snake transformation with a network of tunnels and no Snip-Snaps are present.

In this form, Kirby and Prince Fluff appear as long strands of yarn with their eyes and shoes visible. The yarn color will match the color of their regular forms (pink for Kirby, and blue for Prince Fluff). As a snake, the heroes have no means of attack. Although the only enemy capable of entering the passageways is the rarely encountered Snip-Snap. The only means of defense possible are evasion maneuvers with an attempt to reach the exit and return to full size. When reaching crossroads in tunnels, specific directions can be chosen by pressing the desired path's direction on the Dpad.
