The Nightmare is a creature that Link encounters on Koholint Island in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. He is responsible for keeping the Wind Fish asleep and fears its being awakened, so he fights Link to the death in six various forms (five of them taken from various enemies that Link has fought with in previous Legend Of Zelda games) to prevent the Wind Fish's awakening.
