In the title complex, [Ni(C18H14NO)2], the NiII ion lies on an inversion center and is coordinated in a slightly distorted square-planar environment. The 1-[(4-methyl­phen­yl)imino­meth­yl]-2-naphtho­late ligands are coordinated in a trans arrangement with respect to the N and O atoms. In the symmetry-unique ligand, the dihedral angle between the naphthalene ring system and the benzene ring of the methyl­phenyl group is 49.03 (7)°.
