Appearances

Aladdin

In the original film, the staff was shown to have the ability to use hypnosis, as shown when Jafar used the staff to get the Sultan to hand over his mystic blue diamond ring to him. In another scene, Jafar attempted to use the staff's power to have the Sultan allow him to marry Princess Jasmine. However, the fanfare caused by the arrival of Prince Ali (Aladdin) distracted the Sultan before he could finish his hypnotized response.

He later brainwashed the Sultan shortly after attempting to have Ali killed, trying to have him state that Jasmine must marry Jafar. However, Ali revealed himself to have survived and exposed that Jafar had tried to have him killed. When Jafar claimed that he was lying, Ali, deduced how Jafar was able to persuade the Sultan, destroyed the staff, with Jafar exposed for his villainy as a result. Later on, Jafar steals Aladdin's lamp, taking over his role as the Genie's master. He uses his second wish to become the most powerful sorcerer in the world. His staff was restored but it now more powerful, with open fangs and had many skills including moving people and objects. During the final battle, the staff soon disappeared when Jafar become a snake, and then an all powerful genie.

It was shown to have the powers of:

  • Hypnosis: The ruby eyes made those who gazed into them become susceptible to Jafar's suggestions and obey his every order
  • Conjuration: Conjuring a giant hourglass in which Jafar imprisoned Jasmine and a wall of swords to stop Aladdin
  • Transformation: Turning Raja into a kitten and Abu into a toy
  • Weakening: By unravelling Carpet into a pile of thread
  • Telekinesis: Controlling Aladdin, Jasmine, and an entire tower to move in accordance to Jafar's will

Note: Of the powers above, only Hypnosis was used from the start. The other four were granted as a direct result of Jafar's second wish.

The Return of Jafar

In the sequel, Jafar is freed from his lamp, and after transforming into his human form, he retained his staff and it was by his side throughout the entire film. It had its original look and shot laser bolts from the eyes. He was also shown holding it in his Genie form. It is unknown what happened to the staff after Jafar's death, but it could be assumed that it was destroyed along with or after his lamp. 

Hercules and the Arabian Night

In the Aladdin and Hercules crossover, the staff was given its largest role and once again had its original look. In the episode, Hades, Lord of the Underworld, decided to revive Jafar from death after his demise in The Return of Jafar. The staff was used to keep him alive, and if he ever lost it, he would become a lifeless spirit once more. This staff was extremely powerful; creating things like live scorpions and shot fireballs. This staff was once confiscated by Hades after Jafar, in hysteria, started causing destruction in the underworld, as a means to force him to cooperate.

However, the creations of the staff can only exist as long as the staff exists, otherwise the creatures will fade out of existence. Aladdin and Hercules destroyed it during their battle against Jafar and Hades, and with it, Jafar was killed once again and his soul was sucked into the River Styx for good.
