To obtain Snoot, you must use two bombs the first crack in the wall near a portrait of the Cyclops at the beginning of the Cyclops' Fortress level. Any bombs will work in breaking the wall, such as the enemy Coneheads' quick bombs, or Gray Knight, Royal Guard, and Conehead's Magic Projectiles.
- Snoot, Burly Bear, Yeti, Scratchpaw, and Chicken are the only Animal Orbs in the game to provide a Strength bonus.
- In Original versions of the game, Snoot and Burly Bear both give +2 Strength, which makes them functionally the same.
- The NG Golden Sword, Clunky Mace, Butcher Knife, Fishing Spear, Club, Buffalo Mace, and Man Catcher can allow for the highest Strength bonus in the game if combined with Snoot, which is +9 Strength.
