In KQ2 it is possible to get through the poison brambles without the sugar cube, it's just very difficult.

I wonder if the thing with the bridle and the snake is supposed to reference Pegasus being born from the blood of Medusa when Perseus beheaded her, although in that case you might expect the horse to appear when you *do* kill the snake. The KQ games like to reward nonviolent solutions, though.

And a lot of the nonsense stuff is because especially earlier on, they're basically a soup of fairytale characters and settings. I'm not exactly defending this as a design choice because it does often come off disjointed, but at least it makes some of the puzzle solutions a little less bizarre if you keep that in mind.
