The sky serpent will attempt to throw the player off of its back before the player can stab each of its (exposed) joints and kill it. If the player is thrown off, they will take some amount of damage and be thrown back into the air for another chance at killing the sky serpent. Each serpent moves at different speeds and have all sorts of natural weapons such as spikes, fireballs, and glue. There are ways to counteract these different natural capabilities. As soon as the player learns how to counteract the serpents' weapons, it is easier to access and stab its joints. When a serpent is killed, it turns to stone and crashes to the ground.
Sky Serpents may had been inspired by the last part of the Norse story Beowulf. In the last part, Beowulf has to slay a giant blue worm. Some of his attacks are stabbing down on the worm, and holding on to it.
Sky Serpents is likely inspired by Shadow Of The Colossus, as the player climbs onto giant creatures and strike weak spots to kill it in both games, also the only enemies in both games are the collosi and serpents, as well as the fact that both creatures spew black blood.
