Red Snake is a character in EarthBound. He owns a shop in Scaraba. He speaks very snakelike, extending the "S" sounds in his speech. In the Japanese version of the game, he speaks a mix of English and Japanese. His name is actually a mistranslation stemming from this English phrasing; rather than being his name, his introduction to the player in the Japanese version is a reference to Japanese comedian Shopan Igari. Shopan's act consisted of taking a box with holes in it, tapping it with a flute, and yelling "Red snake, come on!" After saying this, a red snake puppet would come out of the hole. The localization team, not knowing the joke, mistook this for his name.
