Shantae Wiki

Nagas are enemies that appear in every Shantae game.


Shantae GBC - sprite - naga.gif They live in a bland wasteland, on the left side (Shantae's right) of Scuttle Town. They are skinnier, green and have loud screams. Nagas are much tougher in this game than their modern counterparts.

Shantae: Risky's Revenge

SRR sprite - naga.pngIt seems that the Nagas have tidied up their wastelands, which has been turned into a pumpkin patch with lots of vegetation. Nagas no longer have their multi-screen homing scream attack, making traversing their homelands much easier.

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

They are now found in the Village of Lost Souls. Nagas have higher health than in Risky's Revenge, but their attack patterns are much the same.

When a Naga is defeated they burst into bones. SRR sprite - naga.png

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Nagas can now fire balls of energy in a rapid fire succession at Shantae. They are adapted to fire projectiles from both their shoulders and the bottom of their armor. Should the player decide to crouch to avoid attacks from their shoulders, they will switch to attacking from the bottom to harm the player. When defeated they have a high chance of dropping monster eggs.

In Mermaid Falls, Nagas replace Mermaids as the dominant enemies in the area once the chapter has been cleared, as the mermaids befriend Shantae once she rescues their queen and no longer see a reason to attack her.

Shantae and the Seven Sirens

The Nagas' behavior and attacks are the same as in Half-Genie Hero. In this game, they are occasionally found guarding smaller dens of snakes.

Their Monster Card reduces the cost of Fireball spells when equipped.
