Nightmares are enemies within Dawn of the New Hour. Their actual origin is unknown, although several people have theorized the reason they exist. The Elder in New Woodbury mentions that Nightmares could be caused from people's bad dreams, but also mentions that they could be linked to the Opening.

The Hooded Man seems to be able to hold control over some of them, or at least is able to command them.

Design

Each Nightmare has a different design, however, they keep a very fantasy-like look. Each one is colorful, and most are bright despite their name. Nightmares also have distinct eye differences as well.

Datamining

The following enemies were found in a private release of the Aurum demo. It is unknown what many of these look like, or how accurate the stats of each one are, as most of them not featured in the demo outright don't have more than base stats and don't have images to go with them. It is also unknown if any of these will actually show up in the final product of the game.

  • Goop Skeleton
  • Imp
  • Gazer
  • Sahagin
  • Lamia
  • Hornet
  • Wisp
  • Ghost

Other enemies found in the Database most likely are developer-specific, or testing enemies.

  • "Bo"
  • "Demo"
  • Three versions of "Items", possible a developer enemy to test out items or item drops
  • "DEV_Test Slime" and "DEV_Test Slime 2"

Other enemies seem to be possible highly-powerful enemies for the full game.

  • "Mega Guinn"
  • Omega (one of the only datamined enemies that have actual stats. In this case, this could be a secret boss or a superboss. It also uses very powerful attacks.)
    • HP: 550,000
    • MP: 6,000
    • ATK: 999
    • DEF: 255
    • MAT: 255
    • MDF: 150
    • AGI: 76
    • LUK: 10
    • EXP: 35,000
    • UNITS: 50,000
    • Extreme multiple elemental resistances

Trivia

  • Nightmares created from children seem to be stronger in attack and defense.
  • At the moment, Enterbrain's Enemy Battlers from VX Ace are being used to represent Nightmares. In the future, Sullivan Miranda will draw out all of the enemies himself, making original pieces without Enterbrain's help.
  • Despite Kingdom Hearts references within Dawn of the New Hour, these Nightmares are not related to Dream Eater Nightmares from Dream Drop Distance.
