|You think you can just walk into this conflict, don't you? Well I have news for you... This isn't your fight!|
|Serpentine, before his first fight with Lilac in Fortune Night|
Serpentine is an antagonist of the Freedom Planet series. He is Lord Brevon's loyal and most powerful mercenary. Unable to resist Brevon's gift of robotic arms, he was infected with a virus that forever enslaved him to Brevon's will. Since then, Serpentine became part of Brevon's army, rising through the ranks and eventually becoming his top general.
Personality and AbilitiesEdit
|Those who cross Brevon will die!|
|Serpentine, from within the Robopanther|
Serpentine is a fanatic loyalist who is Brevon's most powerful mercenary. As a viper, he himself had always wished to have arms, so when Brevon offered him mechanical arms, he couldn't refuse. Of course, it came with a price; upon equipping these arms, he was sadly infected with a virus that drove him to the point of insanity and made him completely obedient to Brevon's will.
Serpentine is shown to be an expert with artillery. As a matter of fact, he can be seen with a gun or two, or he can also use a flamethrower or wrist missiles as a means of attack. He's also a remarkable pilot, shown with knowledge on how to control the transforming Robopanther or even the flying Robogunship from within their cockpits. On his own, he is even capable of gliding above the ground faster than a normal snake. He's fairly powerful on his own, which makes him a formidable opponent, but his over-the-top ego, along with his fanatic loyalty to his boss Brevon, are in fact his biggest weaknesses.
When he mutates within the Dreadnought ship before fighting the heroines for the last time, he becomes a draconic version of himself roughly twice as big as his original appearance. In this form, he can lunge with his arms with force, shoot flames along the ground, or fire lasers from his fingers.

Serpentine will fight Lilac in Fortune Night and all other characters in Jade Creek and Final Dreadnought 2. After attacking, Serpentine will usually hover quickly to the player's flanks, alternating each time. Before the fight with Serpentine in Jade Creek, the player is granted a Water Shield.
|Pistol Burst||Three weak pistol shots with a slight spread. Misses completely at point blank range, easy to avoid. Can be blocked by Milla's Shield and deflected back at him.|
|Bullet Rain||Serpentine will fire a torrent of shots into the air, which will land near him. He will also generate a shield to protect him from being attacked while he's firing. The Area-of-Effect is substantially increased during the fight in Jade Creek. Jumping above Serpentine while he's firing will cause the player to get Stunlocked while taking heavy damage. Milla can block the falling shots if she's carrying a Phantom Block.|
|Flamethrower||Serpentine will fire a flamethrower up and down in the player's direction, while occasionally jumping forward.|
|Missile||When putting enough distance between the player and Serpentine, he will fire a Missile that slowly traces the player's altitude and locks on to them.|
During Jade Creek, Serpentine will take control of his Robogunship after taking enough punishment, attacking the player from there.
Serpentine's Mega Form is the boss of Final Dreadnought 2 and the twelfth overall boss in the game. His attacks will become dangerously large, and he'll attack faster in a pinch. Serpentine will usually punch after every attack he does, but not every time. If damaged enough, his face will appear broken, meaning he's close to being defeated. There will also be bottomless pits on both sides of the arena, so try not to be too reckless with Dragon Boosts if playing as Lilac. Before the battle, the player is granted 4 Extra Lives, with a 5th one if the player is fast enough to run forward and jump to it after Serpentine transforms and breaks the floor.
Boss Attacks Edit
- Punch: Charges up and launches forward with a high melee attack that has to be jumped over.
- Blast: Jump into the air and drop a projectile on the ground that pauses before quickly moving in the player's direction.
- Flamethrower: Spew a stream of advancing flames that move up and down, disappearing after a second. Can be blocked by Milla's Shield and deflected back at him.
- Cannon: Fires multiple shots in four different directions simultaneously in the player's direction and will Stunlock them. Can be blocked by Milla's Shield and deflected back at him. Serpentine will slightly move backwards just before he fires.
- Serpentine is the only villain from the original game to make an appearance in Freedom Planet 2.
- Serpentine is similar to Metal Sonic from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They both act vicious and evil to their enemies (Lilac and Sonic), and they both formerly serve the main villains (Lord Brevon and Dr. Eggman). Unlike Metal Sonic, he never turned against his master, and only his arms are mechanical.
