- Genus: Nobilia

- Elemental Weakness: Light
- Tricks: Bad Dream, Grudge
- Items Dropped: None
- Location: Castaway Cove
This Nightmare's moves do not do damage, so defending will not be very useful during this fight. Bad Dream puts everyone to sleep while Grudge places a curse condition on a single target. The curse condition will reduce the victim's movement speed. If you want to remove either of these conditions, stock up on be-gone provisions before this fight.
Swaine's Nightmare's physical hits are rather tough, so make sure to keep everyone's health up during the fight. A good tactic is to run around and use spells to attack. Periodically, the nightmare will teleport to a random character and cast an above ability. You can try and get in a few physical attacks to interrupt his cast or just run and avoid as usual.
Continue this until the nightmare is defeated.
