After Percy bathes in the River Styx, Hades appears riding in a black-and-gold chariot with a small army of undead warriors. Percy defeats the army easily and jumps into Hades' chariot. Hades raises his staff and tries to blast Percy with a dark bolt of energy but Percy deflects the blast with Riptide. It is unknown what happened to it after that, but it is likely that he swapped it for his newly completed sword, as it is not seen during the Battle of Manhattan.
- In some myths, the staff is described as a two-pronged fork.
- It is unknown if Hades still uses it due to the forging of the Sword of Hades.
