The Ekans Brothers are Pokémon that appear in the Magical Pokémon Journeymanga. Arbok is their cousin and boss. They were originally antagonists in their introduction, but have become part of the group of friends.
The Ekans Brothers first appeared in Clefairy Comes Through! where they picked on a timid Clefairy. Hazel was able to scare them away by shouting. Afterwards, the two returned with Arbok who decided to attack Hazel. However, the Ekans and Arbok were not successful as they were blasted away by Clefairy's Mega Punch.
In Christmas Wishes, the Ekans Brothers went to a Christmas party in Wigglytuff's mansion and were on friendly terms with Hazel and the others.
