Meta:

Trying to split up Somewhere A Herpatologist Is Crying into real objective tropes instead of a mess of tropes hidden in a YMMV page. Help doing this is appreciated.

Needs Indexes, needs examples. Redirects: Hypnotic Amphibian

Trope:

Reptiles Are Abhorrent. Everyone knows this. What's a way to make them even more so? By giving them Mind Control powers! A common subtrope of The Hypnotoad.

Examples.

Tabletop Games
  • Dungeons & Dragons. The Necrophidus is a golem-like monster that looks like the skeleton of a giant snake, with a fanged human skull as its head. It can perform the Dance of Death, which will cause anyone looking at it to be hypnotised.
  • Vampire: The Masquerade: Hypnosis is one of the possible uses of the Serpentis discipline, which belongs to the Setite clan, a snake-themed vampire sect.
