Zhakata is a deity worshipped in the domain of G'henna in the Dungeons & Dragons setting of Ravenloft. In-universe, it is a fictitious deity, born from the madness of Yagno Petrovna, whose sacrifices to the false god made him the Darklord of G'henna.

Zhakata is considered to be a god of famine who must be appeased by the sacrifice of food. It was once thought that when he is sated, he will return to earth as "the Provider", his aspect as a god of plenty and turn the sorry state of G'Henna around into an era of bountiful harvests and general happiness. Unfortunately for the domain, the last time Yagna tried to summon Zhakata, he called up the nalfeshnee Malestroi, who bluntly told the Darklord that Zhakata never existed. Yagno refused to believe it and declared worship of Zhakata's Provider aspect to be heretical.
