Sweet dreams, Ghost Boy...
~ Nocturn after putting Danny to sleep.

Nocturn is the Ghost of Sleep and Dreams and a villain from the Danny Phantom cartoon series. Nocturn is a powerful ghost who can put people to sleep, summon an army of ghost called the Sleepwalkers, and can absorb dream energy to make himself stronger and give himself more power. The more people that are dreaming and producing oneiric energy, the stronger he becomes. Using special helmets that can sap the oneiric/dream energy out of a person when he or she is dreaming peacefully, to channel the energy into him or his capsule. His powers depended on this energy. Without it, all his powers decrease to the point of nonexistence. At his most powerful, Nocturn is one of the few ghosts that can easily regenerate lost body parts and from being blown or shattered into pieces, similar to Undergrowth.

Nocturn is voiced by James Garrett.


Nocturn set his Sleepwalkers on Amity Park, at one point battling Danny Phantom and defeated him, before putting him to sleep and having his minions, the Sleepwalkers, toss him into the Ghost Zone. He then put the rest of the town to sleep and began harnessing their dream energy, however Danny managed to wake up.

He returned to Amity Park to find everyone fast asleep and was confronted by the Sleepwalkers and Nocturn. They subdued him and the sleep ghost brought Danny back to his parent's lab, then proceeded to introduce himself, before explaining what he was doing. Nocturn and the Sleepwalkers went from town to town, putting the people to sleep and harnessing dream energy from them. Danny broke free of his bonds and fight ensued between the two, with Danny emerging the victor after he succeeded in freezing, then shattering Nocturn. However due to absorbing dream energy Nocturn was able to survive and regenerate.

He went off to deal with the Sleepwalkers, not knowing the dream ghost had reformed, though he was still weakened, and had teleported back to his base. Danny managed to figure out the only way to get one of the sleep helmets off was by shocking the sleeper in their dream. He managed to use his overshadowing powers to enter the dreams of Sam, Tucker, and Jazz and woke them up, then managed to track down Nocturn's base, an abandoned mattress factory. They found him asleep in a chamber in his lair that would allow him to gain more energy.

Danny and Sam went to face Nocturn in his dream, but their attempts to fight him did little due to the amount of power he'd gained. However Tucker managed to jam the frequency of the antenna that the sleep ghost was using to harness dream energy. Nocturn was weakened enough that Danny and Sam managed to beat him and wake him up, along with everyone else. He was left powerless and was easily subdued with the Fenton Thermos. Nocturne later appeared amongst the countless other ghosts to help Danny turn the planet intangible, to save it from the Disasteroid.


  • His name "nocturne" means a musical composition inspired by or evocative of the night.
