Aren't they usually depicted as snake-taurs, resulting in having arms? --NDos (talk) 00:12, 15 July 2023 (UTC)

That's a "modern" interpretation (and yet another justification for what I've been doing to Origin sections on each monster page). Folkloric nagas are frequently of the "snake with human head" type, in the literal sense. --Umbire the Phantom (talk) 00:16, 15 July 2023 (UTC)
Nagas need to have genders implemented like other humanoid mobs. Also, when nagas consume noncursed potions of gain level, they need to grow up into Nagarajas. --Skrizzle (talk) 05:01, 16 October 2023 (UTC)
