Water demons are basically evil supernatural beings and demonic creatures that become the most powerful in water. They create tragedies while staying in water and can either harm others, irritate them or create similar circumstances to generate as much imbalance and chaos, as they can.

List of some famous Water Demons From Mythology:


1) Nicor : A Water demon you must avoid, for it would otherwise drown you (if you are a human). Apart from this simple task, it can also cause bigger and greater havocs like causing hurricanes, tempests and other similar things.

2) Bannik: This is actually the bathhouse spirit in Slavic mythology. Now, bathhouses were basically a kind of saunas which used to have an inner steaming room and an outer changing room. In Salvic mythology women would use these bathhouses to give birth and practice divinations, hence the bathhouses used to come up with powerful endowment of important and strong forces. Bannik had the capability to predict the future, and used to receive offering from people for its job. It can't do much harm to you, unless until you offend it. The possibilities of harm are still unknown as no one ever dared to play any prank on it and know the repercussions.

3) Bagiennik: This dude was a water demon and was called by Bagiennik in the Salvic mythology. Bagiennik is similar to the bathhouse spirit Bannik. It was subjected to Wada, the lady of the lakes and also the shallow streams. The Bagienniks used to live in the depths of lakes and rivers and were capable of emitting out an oily material from their nostrils, which were placed between the eyes or on the forehead. This material was supposed to be so hot that it could burn the victims it hit, but legends also tell that this oily substance had certain healing abilities for rheumas, deep wounds, heart illness, indigestion, and even infertility.
You can save yourself from getting hit by them, by simply avoiding getting into the water that has the presence of bagienniks. For this, you just have to notice the bubbles on the water's surface, or its darker and muddy colour.

4) Gong Gong: He is a Chinese water god who is responsible for the great floods, together with his associate, Xiang Yao who has nine heads and the body of a snake.

it would b interesting if you ever plan to write on Greek mythology even though it is very similar to the Hindu mythology, but its fascinating.
