The blue-colored anti-venom in the staff can reverse the effects of the Hypnobrai hypnotism, but only if the Hypnobrai hypnotism is active. When mixed with the anti-venom of the other four Snake Staffs, a white liquid is formed that, when it drips on a piece of paper, creates a map to the four Fangblades.
As the staff was the symbol of leadership within the Hypnobrai, Slithraa never let it out of his hand even when the snakes attacked Jamanakai Village. However, while there, the General was attacked by Cole who claimed the staff and used the anti-venom to release the villagers of their hypnotism.
The Ninja continued to keep the staff safe from Serpentine hands at the Monastery of Spinjitzu. However, this provoked an attack by the Hypnobrai on the monastery to reclaim the staff while the Ninja were preoccupied. Skales returned to the Hypnobrai Tomb with the staff in his possession until he was challenged to a Slither Pit duel by Slithraa. Mezmo held on to the staff during the fight and presented it to Skales when he claimed victory.
In his efforts to take control over the four remaining Serpentine tribes, Pythor challenges the respective generals to their staffs and their allegiance in the Ouroboros Slither Pit. During the fight, Pythor used the stolen Sacred Flute to incapacitate his competition. As Skales was looking to become Pythor's second-in-command, he conspired with Pythor before the fight and subsequently wore earplugs to the fight. Thus he relinquished the Hypnobrai Staff willingly.

Rise of the Snakes (2017 Museum gallery)
Snake staff of the Hypnobrai tribe and a symbol of the power of the Hypnobrai general. The staff contains anti-venom that can counteract Hypnobrai hypnosis. When the anti-venom is combined with that of the other four staffs, it creates a white liquid which provides a map to the location of the Fangblades.
- In the TV series, the Hypnobrai Staff was held by every Serpentine rank in the Hypnobrai, except for the Scout rank. Although normally wielded by the current general, it was temporarily held by Skales (as a warrior) and Mezmo prior to the Slither Pit in "Home."
- However, in the sets, it was held by everyone except Mezmo.
