NETHACK DOES MYTHOLOGY
This category is about mythology as used in the classic computer game NetHack.
2: Like in the Aladdin folk tale, you can rub a magic one of these objects (not a ring) to summon a djinn who can grant a wish.

4: You can defeat Medusa by reflecting her gaze, but in myth, this slayer of Medusa used a reflective shield to safely look at her.

6: This god who stole the Amulet of Yendor has the same name as the Canaanite god to whom firstborns were sacrificed.

8: This lawful goddess of samurai is also the Japanese sun goddess.

10: Valkyrie are the most capable of throwing and catching an artifact lightning-producing war hammer based on a mythical weapon with this name.

ITALIAN PASTA NAMES
By Woof.
3: The name of this most common of pasta shapes means "thin rope" in Italian.

6: The name of these long, thin, flat noodles means "little tongues" in Italian.

9: The name of these bow-tie shaped noodles means butterflies in Italian.

12: Mmm...the name of these large tubes that are usually stuffed with a filling means "small muffs" in Italian.

15: Last for your thoughts are these bias-cut, small tubes that take their name for the Italian word for feather or quill.
