Stolen by Tina Minoru
The Staff of One was kept in the vaults of the sorcery academy where Tina Minoru was studying Magic. It was then stolen by Minoru on Morgan le Fay's orders as le Fay wanted to use it to rule over both the Dark Dimension and Earth. However, the Staff was never delivered to le Fay since Minoru had realized that she had only been a pawn in le Fay's plans. Instead, Minoru simply kept the Staff for herself.
PRIDE's First Ritual
The Staff of One was found by Nico Minoru while exploring her mother's office. She briefly reminisced about her older sister Amy, accidentally making it snow. She had Alex Wilder come over to the Minoru household to stop the snow, hiding the fact from Tina in the process.

In order to revive Victor Stein, PRIDE decided to sacrifice one of their members. While Janet Stein was to be sacrificed, her lover Robert Minoru decided to sacrifice himself out of guilt for not being there to save Amy, much to Tina's concern. While Jonah deemed Robert as "dispensable," Tina used the Staff of One to disintegrate the Dematerialization Box that was to sacrifice Robert. Leslie Dean was angered by Tina's actions, as one of the only people who knew how to make the capsule was "legally dead." At this, Tina threatened to use the Staff against Leslie, but was halted by Jonah.

- ―Tina Minoru to Nico Minoru[src]
Nico Minoru brought the Staff of One with her to aid her friends in stopping PRIDE. She attempted to use it to fill up a hole dug up by PRIDE, but Tina Minoru cancelled the command by summoning the Staff back to her hand. Tina later used the Staff to block attacks from Chase Stein's Fistigons and Karolina Dean's beams of light, but she was soon disarmed by Jonah.
Nico Reclaims the Staff
Tina Minoru later used the Staff to rescue the Dale and Stacey Yorkes, by causing their attacker, Graciela Aguirre to choke. Nico Minoru went back to Minoru Mansion, with Karolina Dean and Molly Hernandez to try and retrieve the Staff. Nico was faced by her parents with Tina in possession of the Staff. Nico tried fighting her, and Karolina and Molly tried to help. But even with Karolina and Molly's abilities, Tina used the power of the staff to fight them off. She pushed Molly into the pool and covered it in ice, trapping Molly under it. While Karolina and Molly were unable to break it, Tina struck Karolina and Nico called out to her mother, telling her that Amy died because Tina cared more for power than anything else. Tina unfroze the water, allowing Molly to surface and Tina handed the staff to Nico, as a means for Nico to survive on the run.

|Appearances for the Staff of One|
In chronological order:
- In the comics, the Staff of One is a powerful staff containing a trapped magical entity known as the One, who chose to become Tokiko Minoru's weapon rather than die after she bested him in battle. The Staff is capable of summoning any spell and incantation. According to Tina Minoru, it made even the likes of Dormammu tremble.
Behind the Scenes
- Unlike in the comics, where the Staff of One resides inside Nico Minoru's body and is summoned whenever she shed her own blood, the staff was initially shown as a device that needs only a drop of blood to be used. For the first two seasons, these changes were made to avoid any controversy for inciting self-harming behavior.
