It is a Dark-elemental staff whose special effects tend to be something of a double-edged sword, offering great offensive power but potentially detrimental effects to players.
The Hela's Staff is a black metal staff with three sturdy spikes on its head. A small, spherical "cage" made of narrow strips of metal is directly below the spiked head, and the shaft has a few small adornments along its length and another spike on the tip, giving it a slight resemblance to a wrought-iron fence post. Most notably, the Hela's Staff has a white skull with curly grey horns impaled on the topmost spike of its head, with a pair of white feathers and a long red plume attached to the back of the skull.
The Hela's Staff has very different attributes in the game it's featured in. In EBF3, it gives a low boost in Magic Attack at the cost of defenses, and has a chance to inflict the Doom status on a foe if used for Natalie's standard attack. Its Unleash attack has a high chance of instant death to the target but lowers user's defences afterwards. In EBF4, it greatly increases the user's Magic Attack at a massive cost in HP and MP. It will also Curse the target instead of Dooming it, and can also randomly Curse Natalie between turns, which can not be avoided with Curse resistance.
