Ninjago Hypnobrai Tribe

The Ninjago Hypnobrai Tribe are one of the five ancient Serpentine peoples of Ninjago. The snake people are the 2012 enemy for Ninjago Ninjas. 

The Hypnobrai snake people are blue with yellow and white detail. 

Their special power is hypnotism! When fighting the Hypnobrai the ninja must be careful not to look them in the eye or they will fall under their power. 

There's an anti-venom that acts an an antidote to Hypnobrai hypnotism but it's in a vial in the Golden Hypnobrai Staff.

Destiny's Bounty with Fangpyre Snakes

The Ninjago Destiny's Bounty is one of the large set in the Ninjago 2012 snakes theme. 

This is a Hypnobrai-themed set featuring Hypnobrai General Skales and Hypnobrai warrior Slithraa. 

Serpentine generals don't have legs so the Hypnobrai minifigure with a tail is General Skales. It wasn't always this way though ...

(Former) General Slithraa

General Slithraa was in command of the Hypnobrai but he was defeated by Skales, then his second in command. 

Serpentine Generals don't have legs, they grow a tail instead. As a General, Slithraa has a tail and no legs. When he lost command he lost the tail and grew legs. 

Ninjago Hypnobrai Rattla

Rattla Minifigure and Spinner

Rattla is a member of the Hypnobrai tribe. The Rattla minifigure can be found in the Ninjago Snakes Spinjitzu starter set #9579. 

Rattla has a blue face with red eyes and fangs. Careful, don't look into the eyes of a Hypnobrai - they can hypnotize you with a stare!

In this set Rattla comes with 3 weapons including a Hypno Viper snake staff (actually a live snake minion!)

Rattla has a yellow Spinjitzu spinner with a cool purple and yellow snake crown.
