Naiads are a type of nymph in dNethack. Players attempting to deal with one should consult the main nymph page, especially if they are unfamiliar with nymphs.

Naiads have the same appearance as a water nymph in regular NetHack, but are slightly stronger than vanilla nymphs (and the dNetHack dryad, which is roughly equivalent to a vanilla nymph). They also have a tendency to "collapse into a puddle of water" when badly wounded by an attack, dying immediately, but wetting and potentially rusting any weapon used to make the attack.
