A Snake Ball is an enemy in Bloodborne.


Snake Balls are masses of venomous snakes conjoined to a single body. They populate most of the Forbidden Woods and have completely infested the area and some of their denizens.

They are aggressive creatures with a venomous bite that can inflict Slow Poison on the player.

There are two kinds of Snake Balls:

  • Small- these always attack in groups and often hide in tall vegetation. The roaming Snake Parasites in the forest will summon four of these by whistling, upon spotting the player.
  • Large- true to their name they are a gigantic conglomerate of thick and large snakes, taller than any man. They appear to lead the smaller Snake Balls and will often surround themselves with them. 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.


The smaller Snake Balls are weak opponents and are especially vulnerable to elemental damage. They also move very slowly and are only dangerous at close range. However they are capable of rapid attacks that hit multiple times and inflict poison very quickly.

They tend to be hidden from view and will attempt to ambush the player but their hissing gives away their location. Snake Balls become much more dangerous if there are other enemies nearby as they will move in to attack the player whilst they are distracted.
