In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, linnorms are ancient, primeval cousins of dragons. Linnorms lack wings and hind legs, making them more serpentine than true dragons. All known linnorms are evil and cruel.

Linnorms are sometimes referred to as "Norse dragons".


  • Corpse Tearer Linnorm - The most powerful linnorm, possesses energy drain, spells and acid breath.
