Snappers[1] are a type of enemy found in Ori and the Will of the Wisps. They are blue and lizard-like with glowing blue eyes and jaws, a white belly, green spines on it's back and yellow horn-like points growing out of it's head. It is first found in Inkwater Marsh, and can be found in Kwolok's Hollow and Windswept Wastes. It has a red variant.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

It will stay in place and heave up and down when idle. Once it has sensed Ori, it will pause for two seconds and charge at Ori, inflicting damage if Ori is hit, and charging for a small distance before correcting its direction if they haven't. They will try to attack Ori until the snapper dies, Ori dies, or Ori gets out of the snapper's vision.

Ori receives about two life cells of damage when attacked by the Snapper.

When Ori is dealing combo attacks on the Snapper, it will attempt to charge through the attack and strike them.

Snappers can be killed with three smashes of the Spirit Smash, seven hits of the Spirit Edge, six arrows of the Spirit Arc, three Light Bursts, three Launches or one Spike. 

Snappers can be avoided entirely by leaving them behind if they aren't in flat ground. They can also be easily dodged due to their bull-like behavior.

Snappers drop 10-15 spirit light upon death.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Snapper was originally supposed to use a turtle's shell like a hermit crab, but Moon Studios later simplified the design for a dash-based enemy type.[1]
