Cobra Strike II: Y, Y+B, X+Y <hold> ← is the second album by Buckethead's side project Cobra Strike. In addition to Buckethead and DJ Disk, this album features a completely different cast of musicians.

The term "cobra strike" was inspired by the video game G.I. Joe: Cobra Strike (1983). Artwork for the album features cobras as seen in the game.

The music is more or less in the same vein as The 13th Scroll and includes several sound samples from the cult film El Topo like in «Desert» and «First Master». The title and the content of «Yoshimitsu's Den» is a reference to a game character for the Tekken series of fighting games.
