|“||No matter how she twists and turns, the snakes underneath her keep her balance.||”|
—Franken Stein, Episode 23
The Tail Snake serves its purpose in keeping it's user balanced. In the anime, it is more flexible, acting as an anchor as it extends outwards, launching the user into the air with the user able to conduct complex aerial attacks, before pulling her back safely near the Tail Snake's anchor point. It can also help direct Medusa's movements in the air.It can also be used for an attack, where it curves up above Medusa's head and shoots forward towards the opponent.
