Snake (Yoshi's Story)
Snakes, also called air snakes or Aerosnakes, are creatures that fly in the air and can be used as moving platforms in Yoshi's Story. When a Yoshi steps on one, the snake will start flying in the air. Snakes are encountered only in the first area of Stage 3-1: Cloud Cruising, in which they are found en masse.
Snakes come in two types: blue snakes and red snakes. When stepped on, both play carnival-esque music, but the music is slightly different depending on the color of the snake. The music can also play either forward or backwards, depending on the current direction of the snake. If a Yoshi loses a snake, the Yoshi can always find it again at its original spot. Otherwise, once a snake moves, it never stops. Blue snakes are encountered first, and they move in a horizontal zigzagging motion, while red snakes move in a vertical zigzagging motion, necessitating jumping to stay on board; both change direction when landed upon. The incline that the snakes travel in varies between each.
