|I can summon a spirit cobra familiar with this.|
A spirit cobra is used in the Summoning skill to summon a Spirit cobra. It is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 116 spirit shards, a Crimson charm and a Snake hide (or Snake hide (swamp)) in the inventory, and 63 Summoning. It gives 276.8 Summoning experience when made. Spirit cobras can be used as a decent source of revenue, especially for low level players to which higher opportunities are not available. The Ophidian Incubation special ability of the spirit cobra can be used to transform eggs into Cockatrice eggs, which sell for a much higher price.

|A scroll for a spirit cobra familiar.|
The Ophidian incubation scroll enables the use of the Ophidian Incubation power for a Spirit cobra familiar. The Ophidian incubation scroll is made by using a Spirit cobra pouch on a Summoning obelisk, creating 10 scrolls.
Ophidian Incubation is an effect generated via the Ophidian incubation scroll. In order to create this effect, a player must first have summoned a Spirit cobra.
The Ophidian Incubation effect uses up a scroll, and transforms a single egg from the player's inventory into a corresponding variety of Cockatrice egg. The following transformations take place:

- "I am king of the world!" is a line from a 1997 film Titanic; this also is a pun on the species name: King Cobra.
- The spirit cobra's hypnotic behaviour resembles that of Kaa, the snake from "The Jungle Book."
- The spirit cobra's special ability Ophidian Incubation is based on the myth that a chicken's egg hatched by a snake will become a cockatrice.
