Spanish language Spanish Negative Pronouns ~ Pronombres negativos

Spanish negative pronouns, sometimes called indefinite negative pronouns, negate, refuse, or cast doubt on the existence of the noun that they replace.

Nadie lo quiere. No one wants it.
No vi nada. I didn't see anything.
Ninguno de los libros me interesa. None of the books interests me.

The Spanish negative pronouns are:

(no...) ninguno (de) none (of), not any (of)
(no...) nadie no one
(no...) nada nothing, not... anything

Negative pronouns have one or two parts, depending on their placement in the sentence: before the verb (as the subject), Spanish negative pronouns are one part, while after the verb (as the direct or indirect object), they have two parts.

Nadie lo quiere. No one wants it.
No vi a nadie. I didn't see anyone.
 
Nada va a pasar. Nothing is going to happen.
No hay nada en el coche. There's nothing in the car.
 
Ninguno de los libros me interesa. None of the books interests me.
No tengo ninguna de la ropa. I don't have any of the clothes.

Note that ninguno changes to agree with the noun that it modifies:

singular plural
masculine ninguno ningunos
feminine ninguna ningunas
