Nidhogg (Níðhöggr, i.e. Malice Striker) is a creature from Norse mythology, a dragon who gnaws at a root of the world tree. It first appeared in The Witcher: Adventure Game as an horrific opponent.

The Witcher: Adventure Game Edit

TWAG monster card Nidhogg

Nidhogg can cross your path in "The Witcher Adventure Game". This creature is very hard to defeat and one of the strongest opponents in the game (level: Gold).

To defeat it you need:

  • Sword:5
  • Shield:4

Successful Sword: Receive 3 VP. Failed Shield: Suffer 1 Heart for each shield you are short.

Trivia Edit

  • The Nidhogg monster was originally planned as part of the RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Geralt should be imprisoned by Yennefer on a small Skellige island called Isle of Trials. Either you could escape by taking the eponymous trials of the island, or you could face off against a monster called Nidhogg. Neither this additional story part/quest nor the monster or even the isle has made it into the final game.[1]
