Nightmare is the main antagonist of the 123 Slaughter Me Street videogame series, and is the catalyst for all the events in the series. He is the leader of the puppets, and likely the one who made them hostile in the first place.


123 Slaughter Me Street

In the ending cutscene of the game, after the main trio close in on Tim Denson, his face appears in a sea of flames with his eyes glowing and emits a deep laughter before disappearing.

123 Slaughter Me Street: Retro

He is encountered as a boss fight at the end of three levels. He will fly above the player and swoop down, needing to be countered with the flashlight when he does so. He can also summon tinier versions of himself, which disappear when the flashlight is shined on them.

123 Slaughter Me Street 2

He appears in the game's beginning cutscene, lying on a box in Tim's basement while the latter works. When Tim's daughter comes in, Nightmare possesses him into killing her.

During gameplay, Nightmare will greet the player at the end of some levels, speaking to them in a cut scene. Occasionally, Nightmare will exit the shed in the back yard and begin to fly towards the player, killing them if he can catch them. In the 10th and final level of the game, his face is seen speaking in reverse on the living room TV.


Nightmare is a large red puppet with red fur, slit pupils, a set of sharp teeth, and a large round pink nose. In the original game, his sclera were white and he had two small black horns that curved downward. His retro design is instead bright orange with a bat-like body. He has large silver bull horns, black eyes with white pupils, and a light orange underbelly and pair of wings.

Nightmare's appearance is much more complex in Slaughter Me Street 2, with a hairless bat body covered in veins and black spikes. His sclera are bright red, and he has two small, floppy ears. His horns are dark gray and bend backwards in a similar fashion to The Greeter's horns.

  • Nightmare made Tim Denson kill his own daughter.
  • His face was based off of Elmo from Sesame Street.
  • There is a picture made by Tim's daughter hanging on the fridge in 123 SMS 2: said picture depicts a bright red owl sitting atop someone's head, most likely symbolizing Nightmare and his control over Tim's mind.
  • There was a character called Gomez teased for the upcoming 123 Slaughter me Street: Evolutions remake that's increadibly similar to Nightmare and may be a different form of him.
  • He is the only enemy of the 123 Slaughter Me Street series not to be a puppet, but a demon.
    • He is also the only enemy able to talk.
