A being which appears in both the Poetic and the Prose Edda where it gnaws on the roots of Yggdrasil and causes dissent in its interaction with the eagle who sits at the top of Yggdrasil. Níðhöggr also appears at the end of Völuspá where it gnaws on the corpses of the dead in a hall called Náströnd. Níðhöggr is referred to as a snake in the Prose Edda and Grímnismál but in Vóluspá it is also referred to as a dragon.
