The Sidewinder R (サイドワインダー・R), (also referred as simply "Sidewinder") is a new obstacle in the Third Stage introduced in SASUKE 31. The obstacle consists of four columns (poles) parallel to each other similar in zig-zag formation that competitors must get across one by one to the other side and each one has grips for competitors to hang onto the columns (poles).The distance between each columns (poles) is 1.8m if crossed one by one, similar to the function of the Hariyama (aka Pole Grasper in ANW5). Though no one failed it in the Third Stage, it exhausted most of the competitors who attempted it, leading to all but two (Morimoto Yūsuke and Kanno Hitoshi) failing the Crazy Cliffhanger. This was similar to the relationship between the Tackle and Soritatsu Kabe in the First Stage.

The Wind Chimes used in American Ninja Warrior 7 were similar to the Sidewinder R.

Sidewinder R Kai


In SASUKE 32, to make this obstacle harder, it was modified that the second and third pole will drop 60cm when transit from the first pole. Therefore its name was changed to Sidewinder R Kai (サイドワインダー・R 改), its position still remains as the third obstacle.

Sidewinder Kai

This time, in SASUKE 33, it was modified once again. The second and third pole still drop 60cm when transit. However, all poles were placed in a straight line instead of the usual zig-zag formation. The name has left out the letter "R" thus it will be called, Sidewinder Kai (サイドワインダー 改)
