Naija is the main character of the indie game Aquaria. She's an unlockable character for the PC/Mac/Linux versions of the game for collecting 50 bandages.

By holding Special (Shift on keyboard) in mid-air, Naija will float very slowly. Upon releasing Shift, Naija will dash upward extremely fast. However, her jump is short, making her not as useful for wall jumping levels. She is somewhat similar to Spelunky, except that she can't dash downwards. She also doesn't fly as far as Spelunky, and her movement on land is very slippery, meaning she will slide uncontrollably for a moment when she changes direction.

If the game lags when Naija dashes near the corner of a wall, there is chance she will clip right through it. It's most often caused by lag, but there are certain levels in the game where she can go through walls without any frame drops. Example of the exploit can be found here.
