"Fangs full of venom-Naja!"
―Naja's roll call[src]

"It's now or never."
―Naja after Camille pretended to believe Dai Shi didn't like her and his final words before his death[src]

Naja is the Rinshi master of the Cobra Fighting Style and leader of the Five Fingers of Poison. He serves as the main antagonist of the episode "Pizza Slice of Life."

History

Naja and the other Fingers of Poison were formed by Camille to destroy Jungle Fury Rangers. Naja was the leader of the group and used cobra fighting style. He used fast, exact, and lethal attacks, which were copied from a cobra. In the first battle with the Rangers, Naja attacked Casey. Tvicon.png TV STORY-A Taste of Poison

When all the other members of his team were killed, Naja decided to overthrow Dai Shi and become the new leader of the Clan as he saw him unworthy of being the leader. He told Camille about it and tried to get her to his side. However, she refused and fought him. During the initial fight, Naja was fatally poisoned by Camille, but he used a Life Talon to cancel it out before he succumbed to it. He then launched an ball of energy towards Camille and fled.

Upon reaching safety, Naja plotted his assassination attempt and decided to revive Rantipede and Gakko. For reasons unknown he chose not to revive Stingerella and Toady. Together, they attacked Dai Shi's palace. However, Rantipede was destroyed by Dai Shi, causing Gakko to flee out of terror and Naja alongside him, although they quickly became separated. Naja fought Camille once again, but Camille had become stronger by absorbing the Rangers' Claw Cannon after Dai Shi suggested she absorb instead of deflect attacks. In a final attempt to save himself, Naja claimed that he could revive her whereas Dai Shi could not with his Life Talons, but Camille remained unconvinced, cut his talons off and finished him off with a strike to the gut. Naja's talons would then be used to revive the three Overlords: Carnisoar, Jellica and Grizzaka. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Pizza Slice of Life

Despite his treachery, Naja would be revived alongside his fellow comrades for the final Beast War but he was quickly killed by RJ. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Now the Final Fury

Personality

Naja was a cunning, cold-blooded, prideful, and determined fighter who used unpredictable strategies in battle. When all the other members of his team were destroyed, he decided to overthrow Dai Shi and lead the Clan. He was highly arrogant and confident in his skills as he underestimated Camille, resulting in his death. Despite this, he is still Loyal to Dai Shi.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Shape-shifting: Like all Rinshi beasts, Naja can change between his Rinshi and monster forms.
  • Energy Blast: Naja can fire a large light blue energy blast from his hand. He only used it once when Camille found him in his final battle but it had no effect on her.

Abilities

  • Strength: Naja possesses great physical strength to battle the Power Rangers and Camille.
  • Skilled Fighter: In addition to his physical strength, Naja is also a skilled fighter.
  • Superhuman Speed: Naja has formidable speed to fight his opponents.
  • Superhuman Agility: Naja possesses major agility and can perform high leaps and somersaults in battle.
  • Superhuman Leap: Naja is able to use his legs to make a strong leap.

Weaknesses

Arsenal

Naja's Sickles

  • Sickles: As mentioned, Naja wields two sickles to attack his enemies. These were essentially the foil to Camile's sai.
    • Energy Empowerment: Naja can charge up his sickles with blue energy and slash at his enemies with enough force to send Camille flying with one hit to the torso.
    • Energy Ball: Naja's signature attack. He would put his sickles together and charge them up to generate a purple energy ball which he would slash repeatedly. He would then grab it in between his sickles and thrust it forth at his enemies. This was strong enough to send Camille flying off a cliff and demorph her and may have killed her again later had she not deflected it.
  • Life Talons: On Naja's hands are fang-like nails that possess the ability to revive the dead. Naja possessed six talons and he used the first on himself after being killed by Camille, then two on Rantipede and Gakko. Camille managed to obtain the last three before killing Naja in order for Jarrod to revive the Overlords once he found the location of their bodies.

Behind the Scenes

Etymology

  • Naja's name is taken from the genus on which cobras belong to.

Notes

  • In his Rinshi form, he wears a blue sash and belt.
  • Unlike his Sentai counterpart, Naja fought and gets defeated by Camille. Then when he is brought back to life, he fought the Jungle Fury Rangers, while his Sentai counterpart never fought the Gekirangers.
  • Out of all the monsters in Power Rangers, Naja has arguably the biggest impact of the plot since his life talons led to the resurrection of the Overlords and the arising of Grizaka as the main antagonist.
  • Like 50 Below of the Barbarian Beasts, Naja is the only member of his group not to face his Power Ranger enemies in giant form. Like Fightoe of the same group, he also was not destroyed by the Rangers but by another villain-at least in his first appearance.
  • Naja is very similar to Snapper in the same series:
    • Both are reptile-themed; him being cobra-themed, and Snapper being turtle-themed,
    • Both are high ranking warriors; him the leader of the Five Fingers of Poison, Snapper a Phantom Beast General,
    • Both try to take over Dai Shi's temple but are stopped and destroyed by Camille.
    • Both are voiced by Richard Simpson.
