“I may not have the staff, but I am still your General!”
Slithraa to Skales in "Rise of the Snakes"

The Hypnobrai Staff is the Serpentine Staff of the Hypnobrai tribe. It is currently in the possession of Skales, after he defeated his former General, Slithraa, in a Slither Pit.

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.


Rise of the Snakes

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.

The Snake King

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.

The Fall

Many years after the events of "The Day Ninjago Stood Still", the Serpentine Staffs were placed in the vault underneath Borg Tower. Lloyd and Garmadon pass the staff while evading the Oni. Description

The Golden Hypnobrai Staff is a powerful scepter of power. It belongs to the Hypnobrai General. Also contains a vial of anti-venom which can reverse the hypnotic trance caused by the Hypnobrai stare or tail rattle.



  • 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.
