The Great Snake Ball is an enemy in Bloodborne.


True to their name the Great Snake Ball is a gigantic conglomerate of thick, large and poisonous snakes, taller than any man. They appear to lead the smaller Snake Balls and will often surround themselves with them.

They populate most of the Forbidden Woods and have completely infested the area and some of their denizens.

There are two kinds of this enemy, one that stands far from the player, spitting thick, poisonous bile; the other will simply pursue players to bite them. They also posses similar attacks to the regular Snake Ball, such as a flurry of attacks that can stun-lock the player. Most of these attacks have a reach that is beyond almost all weapons.



These are usually not alone, they may be accompanied by smaller Snake Balls or another Great Snake Ball. Its Attacks inflict poison but it can be staggered by a high damaging weapon such as Ludwig's Holy Blade.


  • They inflict far more Slow Poison than their smaller kind.


  • The Great Snake Ball acts almost like a matriarch figure to the much smaller and numerous Snake Balls.
