The Thirsty Coil Snake (まきへびドライ, Coil Snake Dry) is an enemy that appears in EarthBound. It is found in the Dusty Dunes Desert's Gold Mine. It is a stronger version of the Coil Snakes met near the beginning of the game.


  • The Thirsty Coil Snake looks like an average Coil Snake, with the only difference being that it is pink instead of green.
    • Interestingly, its appearance in the overworld is the same as an usual Coil Snake.


Thirsty Coil Snakes can use a biting attack, bite using poisonous fangs, and coil around the target and attack, immobilizing them. The text is as follows:

Attack Results
used a biting attack! Targeted damage
took a bit using its poisonous fangs! Damage and chance to poison the target


  • For some reason, this enemy is referred as "Desert Coil Snake" in the EarthBound Player's Guide.
