Snakey is an enemy and one of 31 Playable Characters in Castle Crashers. His magical attacks are Non-Elemental and his starting weapon is the Snakey Staff.

Snakey's specialties include advanced boss slaying, knockback crowd control, basic juggling, and combo locking.


Snakey first appears after the player(s) have successfully killed every Skeleton during the Beefy Skeletons Fight, where they also quite possibly have killed the Peasants at the beginning of Marsh. They also are paired up with a Troll Mother and her Trolls during a little bit into the same level. Next, a couple of Snakeys are paired up with Fish Men to fend off against the player(s) advancing towards Medusa in Medusa's Lair. Finally, a Snakey appears as a resurrected enemy for the Necromancer in Necromancer's Room in Wizard Castle Interior.


Splash Attack

"Thorny Vines"

Element: Non-Elemental

Hits: One per each vine segment (7 hits)

Damage/hit: Base Damage x 0.5

Thorny vines pops out of the ground in front of you, doing one hit each. Each vine segment adds an extra hit, up to 7 hit. Every other segment is a smaller one that adds no range, but all segments add an extra hit. This is very good against bosses as it has significantly more hits on them; it also is good for aligning on targets that take chain damage like a Beefy, and it is very quick.

Magic Projectile

"Dagger Toss"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Damage

Throws a dagger as a magic projectile. Nothing special which is surprising considering this is an exceptionally powerful character. Also Civilian, Peasant, and Open Faced Gray Knight share the same looking dagger, which really doesn't mean much.

Elemental Infusion

"Armor Pierce"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Magic Damage^2 + Base Melee Damage^2

Use Xbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button Y / PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 Triangle to perform. This attack pierces armor, and it deals two times normal damage. That means it deals as much damage to a Barbarian or Thief on Normal Mode as it does to a Stove Face or Cult Minion on Insane Mode.

Magic Jump

"Vine Jump"

Element: Non-Elemental

Damage: Base Damage

Jump using a vine that shoots up out of the ground with a whip sound.

  • Snakey and Brute are reskins of each other, except Snakey throws a dagger instead of an acorn.
  • Even though Snakey's picture is robotic and has bolts on, in the actual game he does not have these lines. Some say this was to keep the designs simple as to fit the style, even though Blacksmith has lines across his mask in the actual game.
