|Snaily Joe, the democratic snail.|
Snaily Joe is a politician snail that is the latest in the long line of political candidates that Richard Independence has been up against. He made his first canonical appearance in the episode "Xerox" of Fantendo Now. He later appeared in a major role in the episode "One Snail Over All".
Snaily Joe is an electric blue snail, often with a turbo-charged shell that allows him to propel much faster than he would normally be able to, but has on occassion worn shells with the flag of America imprinted on it or a black shell and tie. He has cherry red eyes and a winning smile.
Snaily Joe is bombastic and energized about his own campaign, however this charmisa hides the fact he has very little stance on actual policies. He emphasizes "democracy", in his campaign, to the point where he makes the word his slogan ("Democracy!"). This approach suggests that he is only running to oppose Richard Independence to get him out of office after being in there for so long (around two hundred and forty or so years).
He has stated that he would instate term limits once in office, although considering how well Richard Independence has taken care of the country as of late, this is seen as a somewhat controversial move and thus isn't brought up much. He loves his human wife Terra Joe, who is the only one who can get him to change his views sometimes. He has a secret hobby for painting, but is not very good at it.
Snaily Joe comes from a long line of political opponents that have been trying to get Richard Independence out of office for a while. His father, Froggy Joe, proceeded him before, and while Snaily Joe never really had a interest in politics, he was named as Froggy's heir when Froggy died of a heart attack. Since then, he has been more or less bumbling his way through politics. This election year though, he has a winning strategy that will finally make his family proud...
Powers and Abilities

His political opponent, but beyond politics they are actually somewhat good friends. This is likely because Snaily Joe doesn't really have any hard political opinions.
- This character was originally a long running joke and it was speculated that he would be the president in the New Fantendoverse. This turned out to be not the case in Fantendo - Genesis, however he does run against Richard Independence every four years.
- His last name appears to be Joe if judging from his wife's surname, which she took from their marriage. This would mean his first name is Snaily.
