Conker's Pocket Tales instruction booklet, page 17

Hsstamean, also known as Hssstamean from the game manual, is a large segmented snake and the first boss in Conker's Pocket Tales. He is fought at the end of the first world, Willow Woods.

Its name is likely a pun on the organic nitrogen compound, histamine. The "hss" prefix of its name refers to the hissing sound of a snake, whereas "mean" refers to its villainous nature.

Hsstamean in Conker's Pocket Tales.

Being the first boss, Hsstamean is easiest to defeat, and Conker will probably not lose any health during the battle. Hsstamean will appear onscreen and start to go down a specified path. Conker must shoot Hsstamean with his Slingshot at any given moment, damaging Hsstamean. After each hit, Hsstamen will start to slightly increase speed, however this will probably not be a problem, as Hsstamean's long body can make up for being a large target. After six hits, Hsstamean will be no more, leaving Conker to his eighth Present. Hsstamean's only mean of attack is if Conker physically touches him.

On each side of the battlefield, there are two small areas where Hsstamean will not travel through, which makes them good camping spaces, as Conker can stay in them, safe from Hsstamean's path, and shoot Hsstamean as it passes by.
