|~ Jafar transforming into Snake Jafar.|
Snake Jafar is a giant black and orange cobra serpent with red eyes and red stripes on his back.
Power and Abilities
In large part because of Jafar's sorcerer status, Snake Jafar was capable of constricting his foes. In addition, he also possessed a large amount of stamina: Despite being stabbed more than a few times by Aladdin, he managed to recover quickly before constricting the latter.
During a battle, Jafar decides to turn himself into a snake in order to kill Aladdin easily. Jafar is stabbed twice and just when Jafar nearly squeezes Aladdin to death Aladdin tricks him into wishing to be a genie.
Aladdin: The Game
In both versions of the Aladdin video game, Snake Jafar is the final boss.
The Frollo Show
Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents
Snake Jafar makes an appearance in The Frollo Show in the episode Frollo Beats Up Resident Evil. In part 4, Jafar became this form so he could stop Frollo and Stocking but was defeated. Yusuf did the same thing, but was stopped by Samuel L. Jackson.
Jafar turns himself into his snake form in the live show Fantasmic! in his attempt to destroy Mickey Mouse.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
Genie Jafar summons an apparition of his snake form to battle the guests at the entrance to the Cave of Wonders in his Adventureland mission.
- Jafar's reason for taking this form is exactly the same reason why Maleficent took her dragon form: they both wanted to kill the hero in a much larger, more threatening form.
- Snake Jafar, for some reason, doesn't appear to have a lower body.
- For some reason, Snake Jafar doesn't even appear in the Kingdom Hearts games at all. Instead, Jafar actually goes straight to becoming a genie.
- Similarly, some tie-in storybooks based on the film also simply skip the entire snake transformation altogether: in those cases, he is either fought as a human and/or again simply goes straight to becoming a genie.
- Jafar possibly turned into a cobra because they are poisonous and live where the movie takes place.
