A nightmare, u, is a type of monster that appears in EvilHack and Hack'EM. In Hack'EM, the monster is known as a greater nightmare. Nightmares are herbivorous domestic animals that serve as the chaotic equivalent of the horse in the unicorn or horse monster class.

A nightmare has a kick attack and a poisonous bite attack, and possesses poison resistance.

Eating a nightmare corpse or tin confers +16% (16) additional poison resistance.


Nightmares may be generated as peaceful for chaotic characters. A lesser nightmare can grow up into a (greater) nightmare, which can grow up into a cauchemar.

Nightmares appear among the random u that are part of the second quest monster class for Infidels and make up 24175 of the monsters randomly generated on the Infidel quest.

By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon, named NIGHT,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule--
From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of SPACE -- Out of TIME.
[ Dream-Land, by Edgar Allen Poe ]
