This ravenous reptile can swallow its enemies whole! Once it spots prey, it'll slither after it as swift as it can. Some of the things it tries to swallow seem unreasonably large, but its stretchy body allows it to gulp them down. Wait...why does that sound familiar?
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Sssnacker is a moderately large serpentine creature that is a member of the Beast Pack and makes its first appearance in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Once it spots Kirby or Bandana Waddle Dee, it will crawl towards either of them, briefly consuming them if it approaches them. Sssnacker can be inhaled but does not yield a Copy Ability, and it yields a green Star Coin when defeated.

Its name comes from "snack", with the "sss" prefix being an onomatopoeia for a snake's hiss.


Sssnacker can be found in the following stages:
