'''Ophidians''' are monsters from [[Heretic]] that resemble snakes and carry pointed staffs. When attacking, they fire a chain of three purple shots from their staff, pause, and then fire a red [[fireball]]. Ophidians sometimes drop a [[Flame Orb]] when killed. These particular Flame Orbs are worth 5 shots instead of the usual 1 shot.note that when they fire The Ophidian stops firing briefly between the red shot, they aim again, so dont stop moving once you've dodged purple shots and the first threefireball.
Some source ports refer to the Ophidian as "Snake" or "Serpent".
