Snake People, Naga, Lamia, or [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse "Sneople"]] 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]]

* UsefulNotes/{{Hinduism}}
** Nagas can shift from their (often multi-hooded) snake form to human form and almost all are capable of magic in some form or the other. One of the most powerful is the thousand-headed Naga named Ananta("the unending one"), a servant of the God Vishnu, who reincarnated as his master's brother in some incarnations (notably, as Rama's brother Lakshmana and Krishna's brother Balarama).
** The king of Nagas is Vasuki, who lives in the netherworld. The Nagas living in the human world are nature spirits associated with water rainfall, lakes, rivers, wells, seas and springs and will bring droughts and floods if provoked.
** Naga occur frequently in the ''{{Mahabharata}}''. Even though the text proclaims them to be the "persecutors of all creatures" and they are powerful, poisonous creatures, the naga we see in the story vary between good and evil.
** The Buddhist tradition, on the other hand, tends to associate the naga with whatever dragon-like deity exists in the local culture, such as the Chinese long or Tibetan klu. The Buddhist naga is usually depicted as a cobra, sometimes with several heads, or as a human with a snake behind its head, indicating that it shapeshifted into a human form. The most famous naga in Buddhism is Mucalinda, the naga that protected the Buddha. When you see the Buddha meditating under the hood of a coiled cobra, that is Mucalinda.
