* A naga-like one of these (called "Man-Serpents", having human heads with snakes for hair on purely serpent bodies, to differentiate themselves from "Serpent-Men", who have scaly human bodies with the heads of snakes) appears in the ''ConanTheBarbarian'' story "Literature/TheGodInTheBowl," sent in a large jar to a man who dabbled with secrets he shouldn't have touched.

* Mountain Nagas in ''VideoGame/{{Sinjid}}: Shadow of the Warrior'' are humanoid serpents that serve as mid-level enemies in the Monster Portal. They're notable for [[HighPressureBlood releasing fountains of blood]] when killed, which contrasts with [[BloodlessCarnage all the other on-screen deaths that occur in the game]].

Snake People, Naga, Lamia, or [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse "Sneeple"]] are a {{liminal being}} usually depicted with a human head, arms and torso with the added twist of a snake's tail similar in many respects to a [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaid]], [[OurCentaursAreDifferent centaur]], and [[FogFeet some]] [[OurGeniesAreDifferent genies]]. Beings like this can also involve more exotic bodily configurations such as [[WingedTropes wings]] or changing the ratio of snake to human. Also, for some reason, most examples are female.[[note]]The reason is breasts.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' references snake people by name in the episode "Keep Beach City Weird!", with [[CloudCuckooLander Ronaldo]] even providing the page quote; however, Ronaldo's "sneople" theory is closer to the concept of [[TheReptilians reptilians]] than this trope.

** In TabletopGames/{{Warhammer}}, Dechala the Denied One, mistress of the Tormenters Chaos Warband, is a Slaanesh-worshiping High Elf who has been gifted with a snake-like form for her devotion. Dechalaís [[SnakesAreSexy disturbingly beautiful body]] is that of a [[MultiArmedAndDangerous six-armed]] elf from the waist up while her lower body takes the form of a daemonic snake with a stinger that drips a paralyzing venom.

* One of the very first Champions of Chaos for ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' was Dechala the Denied One, a Slaanesh-worshiping High Elf who had been corrupted into a very Marilith-like form (six arms, all carrying swords, and snake-tail for a lower torso). This very similar look to the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' creature and her absence from more recent editions of the game might not be unrelated.

** The Sslyth are a race of [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four-armed]] alien mercenaries with snake-like bodies. Strong and tough, yet relatively slow-witted and easily manipulated, the Sslyth are generally found acting as bodyguards for Dark Eldar Archons.
** The most familiar form of the Daemon Primarch Fulgrim is that of a massive, [[MultiArmedAndDangerous multi-armed]] snake person with a pair of great bat-like wings. There is a grim {{irony}} in this form as it strongly resembles that of the Laer, [[StartOfDarkness the snake-like alien race whose destruction led to Fulgrimís corruption and fall to Chaos.]]

* In the Literature/HorusHeresy novel ''Fulgrim'', the Emperor's Children Space Marine legion exterminated the Slaanesh worshiping Laer, a four-armed snake-like alien race. The Laer practiced extensive bioengineering so that every member of their race was perfectly adapted to their role in society, leading to a number of different types of snake people including winged and aquatic versions.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', prior to the Literature/HorusHeresy, the Emperor's Children Space Marine legion exterminated the Laer, a four-armed snake-like alien race. Much later, their Primarch Fulgrim became a daemon...namely, a four-armed snake-like daemon, a grimly {{iron|y}}ic reminder of his [[StartOfDarkness corruption by a daemon-possessed sword he took from the Laer as a trophy]].
