A Königschlange (KOE-nig-shlaa-nguh; Germ. Königsschlange, "boa constrictor", literally "king's snake") is a king cobra-like Wesen that appeared in "Over My Dead Body".

Characteristics Edit

When they woge, their skin turns scaly, a distinctive hood forms, and they gain a serpent-like tongue and fangs.

They have incredible senses, particularly smell and touch, and are sensitive to temperature and can detect weak vibrations. Their acute senses are not foolproof, and anyone who is under the effect of the Dead Faint potion can trick a Königschlange into thinking they are dead. Because of their unique skill, they are generally sought after by those wishing to unmistakably confirm an individual's death, as well as being a living lie detector of sorts. In short, they typically find employment through exceptionally shady avenues.

They also have sharp fangs that release a deadly toxin into whatever they puncture. Königschlange are extremely fast and have incredible reflexes that far exceed that of a Grimm. When Königschlange combine these traits with their impressive physical strength it enables them to go toe-to-toe with Grimms.

Behavior Edit

They are an extremely unpleasant and dangerous Wesen species. Monroe implied that they are so dangerous that even Blutbaden fear them, and their name is enough to invoke fear in other Wesen. Königschlange also can be somewhat sadistic and enjoy intimidating others.

They are highly suspicious creatures and are very rarely deceived. Königschlange possess superhuman strength and are strong enough to wrestle with a Grimm, as Arbok was capable to gain the upper hand in a fight at one point against Nick.



  • If Arbok's name is read backward it is the German word for cobra (Kobra).
