- This article is about shadow-like creatures that originate from the Mists. For the darker side of the Dream called the Nightmare, see Dream of Dreams.
Nightmares are evil spectral beings often associated with the Mists, often shadow-like in appearance. Their exact nature remains unclear, but they appear to be souls twisted into monstrous, animalistic forms Most Nightmares appear to be natural inhabitants of the Mists, entering the world of Tyria where the boundaries between realms become weaker such as the Godslost Swamp or Statues to Grenth. Like demons, they appear to hate mortals and seek them out with only hostility.
At least some Nightmares are rumored to have natural sound-dampening capabilities.
