A parasite is an invasive species in the animated sitcom Nyah Has an Adventure. Parasites were conceived by Darien Brice Dickinson and first appear in the pilot episode Enter: Nyah, as Nyah herself is one of them.

In the series, parasites refer to any non-human race that can completely take over the brain of any other species by entering a host through any orifice to use their body for any purpose, effectively killing the host (if the host wasn't already recently deceased). This is usually just to survive, as all parasites are born without mouths, and require a host body within weeks of birth or they die from hunger.

Creation

As Nyah's character design was originally drawn by Jordyn-Rae Morrison, she did not design the character with the parasite species in mind. In 2019, Jordyn described her own version of Nyah as a "tadpole lamprey bird lady".

Darien created the parasites as a species that every other species in the series would actively try to exterminate, and made the titular Nyah one of the last remaining parasites, as a reason for drama to occur.

Development

Originally, parasites were only going to be goo-like tadpoles hatched from avian-aquatic hybrid eggs, but more races were added under the "parasite" umbrella, including cellular micro-organisms, spores from mushrooms and other fungi, and sentient elements such as gold and magma. Most crawling species of insects and arachnids are classified as parasites too, while flying insects are classified as creatures.
