Trailsnappers are enemies that make their first appearance in Jacksmith. They are plants that have fallen under the control of Dudley and been turned into monsters by him. During battle, they attack by biting soldiers and sending spiky tendrils out from the ground to hit them.
Trailsnappers are one of the more common enemies in the game; they first appear in the Lowlands, and their elemental counterparts are introduced in later areas. One variant, the wind-elemental Whirlweed first seen in Boneyard Dunes, has its own Flipdeck.

Whirlweeds are a form of Trailsnapper that have been enchanted with elemental wind. When potential prey comes close enough, the Whirlweed quickly spin its yellow petals creating a precise jetstream of air. It then releases a fragrant cloud of poisoned pollen that disorientates its prey. Other Trailsnapper varieties include Tindertulip, Marshtrap, Tundravine, Rockjaw, Electrifern, Snapdragon, and Pitchroot. All of these Trailsnappers are under the complete control of the great wizard, Dudley.
