NiGHTS (trademarked as NiGHTS) is a video game character from the games NiGHTS into Dreams... and NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, developed and published by Sega. NiGHTS is a genderless being known as a "Nightmaren" who resides in Nightopia, a dream world where the dreams of all human beings are acted out every night. The character wears a purple jester-style hat and outfit, with a diamond-shaped red jewel on its chest. (In the Archie comics, this was said to be a piece of a red ideya that broke off and latched onto NiGHTS' chest).
NiGHTS' first appearance was in the video game Nights into Dreams... for the SEGA Saturn. The second game in the series, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, is for the Wii. NiGHTS also appeared in the sampler game Christmas NiGHTS for the SEGA Saturn. NiGHTS has a role in Sega Superstars Tennis as well. Takashi Iizuka reported that he is very interested in making NiGHTS 3, but that will be up to the management at SEGA to decide.
