- "It bites you, you die in minutes, no antidote."
- ―Tribless Sha, regarding Kodashi vipers and their venom
The venom of the Kodashi viper was a powerful neurotoxin that was capable of killing an adult Human within minutes of being bitten by the snake. There was no known antidote for the venom of the Kodashi viper, and those who were subjected to its effects cried out in absolute agony before they died. The Nightsisters of the planet Dathomir made use of Kodashi vipers to attack several members of the Broken Columns Clan of male Dathomiri warriors. Four of the six attacked men died from the effects of the serpent's venom.
