In the [[Oriental Orthodox]] churches, crosiers are used as pastoral staffs held by bishops. The [[Armenian Apostolic Church]] uses both Eastern- and Western-style crosiers, while the [[Syriac Orthodox Church]] and [[Indian Orthodox Church]] have crosiers that are thicker than their Eastern counterparts. Clerics of the [[Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church]] and the [[Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Church]] use crosiers that look exactly like the Greek ones.
 
In the [[Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria]], crosiers are sometimes somewhat longer and are always decorated with a bloodyblood [[red]] cloth around the top cross and the serpents. This symbolises the bishop's responsibility for the blood of his flock.
