NiGHTS in Journey of Dreams.

NiGHTS is the protagonist of NiGHTS into Dreams... (Sega Saturn) and NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams (Wii), games developed and published by Sega's Sonic Team. The character has made several cameos in the Sonic series.

Overview

Designed by Sonic's creator Naoto Oshima, NiGHTS is a member of the genderless "Nightmaren" species who inhabit the world of dreams, and helps out children who come there in their sleep. NiGHTS wears a purple jester style hat and outfit, with a diamond-shaped red jewel on er chest.

A mischievous free spirit, NiGHTS was created by the evil Wizeman in the realm of nightmares, but rebelled against er creator's attempts to conquer the dream world. NiGHTS' gameplay is based around flying, and the character has a variety of aerial skills, including the creation of portals called 'paraloops'. As a creature of the dream world, NiGHTS is capable of transforming into a variety of different shapes on collecting 'persona masks' in Journey of Dreams.

Relation to Sonic

Because of their shared creators, NiGHTS makes occasional appearances in a number of games in the Sonic series. In most cases, NiGHTS simply appears briefly in a cameo role of dubious canonicity.

  • Sonic Shuffle: NiGHTS replaces Lumina Flowlight when the Dreamcast's system date is set to December 24th (Christmas Eve). If the date is set to April 1st (April Fools Day), Lumina is replaced with Reala, NiGHTS' rival.
  • Sonic Pinball Party: This game features a pinball table with many elements from NiGHTS into Dreams, while in the story NiGHTS helps Sonic free Amy and Tails from Dr. Eggman's hypnotism. This is the only game where NiGHTS actually interacts with Sonic.
  • Sonic Battle: NiGHTS can be seen in the Speed Demon mini game, flying in the background.
  • Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing: NiGHTS appears as the flagman at the start and end of a race. Steve Lycett of Sumo Digital said that NiGHTS could potentially become a DLC character if the game became successful, but SEGA announced that there will be no further DLC after the release of Metal Sonic and Death Egg.
  • Sonic Lost World: A NiGHTS-themed level, Nightmare Zone, appears as DLC that is included with "Deadly Six Bonus Edition" copies of the Wii U version, and included for free in the PC version. It's a boss rush stage based on the first encounters with each of the Deadly Six, but themed on bosses from NiGHTS into Dreams. NiGHTS also flies alongside Sonic in the Windy Hill portions of the level.
  • Sonic Runners: NiGHTS, Reala, a Nightopian and an Ideya appeared as equippable Buddies during two of the promotional events for the game. When they were equipped, the music would change.
  • Sonic Forces: One of the special costumes for the Avatar in the Bonus Edition is based on NiGHTS.
