In the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, nagas comprise a variety of similar species of intelligent aberrations with widely differing abilities and alignments. The four most common races of naga are the dark naga, guardian naga, spirit naga, and water naga.


Nagas resemble giant snakes, some with humanoid heads and some with more snake-like heads. Each type of naga has a certain amount of spell casting power.


  • Banelar Naga [1] - purplish naga that can manipulate magic items with short tentacles around its face; named after their association with the deity Bane
  • Bone Naga [2] - a unique type of undead naga
  • Bone Naga Template [3] - can be applied to any naga to create an undead creature
  • Bright Naga [4] - chaotic evil naga that can mock sorcerous spellcasting
  • Brine Naga - powerful naga that resembles a sea serpent
  • Dark Naga - lawful evil
  • Guardian Naga - lawful good
  • Ha-naga [5] - a massive and powerful naga lord, often worshipped by spirit nagas as a god
  • Iridescent Naga [6] - chaotic good
  • Master Naga - Possesses seven cowled heads, wearing giant gems whose value corresponds with the naga's age.
  • Spirit Naga - chaotic evil
  • Water Naga - neutral
  • Worm Naga - powerful servants of the deity Kyuss transformed into nagas


Most nagas worship the naga creator goddess Shekinester and her son Parrafaire, except for dark nagas, who venerate Sess'Innek.

Shinomen nagasEdit

In the Rokugan campaign setting, the nagas of the Shinomen Forest are an ancient race of noble creatures. These nagas have humanoid torsos and snake tails. Five bloodlines are known to exist: asp, chameleon, cobra, constrictor, and greensnake.

Nagas in the Forgotten RealmsEdit

In the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, nagas were created by the reptilian creator race, the sarrukh, along with yuan-ti. The banelar and iridiscent nagas originated in the Realms, as well as a Faerûnian version of the ha-naga.
