    The Serpent of Chaos in the Amber series is an immortal avatar of a primordial force of creation, capable of extending tendrils across dimensional barriers and inspiring madness. One of its eyes was stolen and used as device to manipulate reality (especially weather) and even stop or alter time flow.

    Hell, they get Peter Griffin (and his ancestors) and the Leprechaun from the Leprechaun films. (I now see Peter Griffin dwarf-tossing the Leprechaun at the snakes... )

    I may have mentioned this before, but does Conan the Barbarian count as Irish? There's the name, along with certain Gaelic references, and he fought snake-themed villains.

    No. Conan lived during the Hyborian Age, which was supposedly around 10,000 BC. That's too far in the past before the existence of the Irish. Also, Conan fought against the Picts, who were apparently the ancient ancestors of the Celts. If we want to say that Irish predecessors count as Irish, than we must acknowledge that Conan was their enemy and not one of their people.

    You get the Snake monsters and the Shadows of Yharnam from Bloodborne, too. Which ... uh, in typical Dark Souls fashion, they're horrifying.

    They shoot snakes at you.
