NiGHTS Theories and Discussion

Post  Cornsilk on Mon Apr 19, 2010 8:04 pm

This is a place to discuss any theories ranging from what's under NiGHTS' "hat" to where did they get their names from, to which came first, the Nightopian or the Egg.
This applies to all NiGHTS games and cameos.


So I was looking up translations and I found out that Realta is "star" in Irish.  
I wonder if Realta somehow became Reala?

Heh... My friends read this and told me "The Wizeman created the stars that shine in the NiGHTS. That's funny."

I'm guessin' Gillwing got his name because he looks like a tadpole with wings right?

Probably. Gillwing, Gulpo, and Clawz weren't given very clever names...

Puffy's name is more subtle than the others'. But it probably refers to her shape. Big old puffball that she is Smile
Even though she has no fluff and I usually think of puff and fluff as being similar...

I wanna know one thing. What is Wizeman's motivation?
Does he want to destroy Nightopia? Rule it? And other people say he wants to rule the waking world. This is all just so confusing. And why does he do what he does? My brain hurts now thinking of this.

That depends on which game manual you read.
The Japanese states that Wizeman is only interested in conquering Nightopia.
in the US (and I think UK) manuals, Wizeman's out to take over Nightopia and the Waking.

I personally stick with the Japanese version. It wouldn't make sense for Wizeman to attack the Waking, since he kind of needs us humans to supply all the negative emotions and such that Nightmare is born from.

It also says something about Wizeman being a visitor... (Note, this was long before JoD with its calling all the dreaming kids visitors - but intriguing thought, isn't it?)

I don't really like the idea, but it does seem to be a possibility - a creepy one, at that!

Hopefully, Reala won't check out this thread....Think of the reaction he'd have at the thought of his master possibly being one of us!

Well, sort of.
Even if Wizeman started out as a human, he certainly isn't anymore!

Still, Reala's mind could be blown by such a revelation....or he might just go into denial....

Sorry, I'm just trying to figure out how Reala would feel if he found out that his master, the creator of Nightmaren and ruler of Nightmare, was once a simple Dreamer like us long, long ago....There's just so much poetic irony that could be drawn from such a possibility, if it were found to be true....

I agree. It could indeed go somewhere. However, I still believe Wizeman is the culmination of all things negative about human beings. He is a dark, evil being that lives in the minds and hearts of all people. It goes along with my theory of what NiGHTS is, which is a positive energy force that lives within us all. Its the thing which pushes us to go farther and do what we never thought we could. It gives us courage and strength when we need it. NiGHTS doesn't necessarily have to take the form of a jester. It could be just about anything.

Sorry, NiGHTS. I guess we got a little carried away. ^_^;

Hey, I've been wondering....A grand majority of Nightmaren are based off of animals. Puffy is bunny-like, Gulpo is a fish/frog, Gillwing is a dragon/eel, Clawz is a cat/gorilla, Jackle reminds me of the Cheshire Cat, Chamelan is a chameleon, Bomamba is cattish, Queen Bella is a spider, Girania is a fish, Cerberus is a dog....Oh, and let's not forget the third-rank Nightmaren....

Does Wizeman have a fascination with animals? Or does he simply choose animal bases because those forms are something we Dreamers can relate to and comprehend, thus letting them get past our defenses easier? Nothing like a turnabout when deceit comes into play....

Gulpo is frog-like to you? I just see a piranha. And Jackle reminded me of an ant when I first saw him XD

Nightmaren are personalized. That's why Elliot's nightmares never went after Claris, and whey the NiD nightmaren didn't appear in JoD.
I guess a lot of people fear animals. There's something very primal and symbolic about them.

I dunno....Something about his/her frame reminds me of a frog....^_^;

True that. However, any Nightmaren could've taken any form....and most of them became animal-like. I just figured that I couldn't have been the only one to notice the dominating animalistic characteristics found in almost all of the Nightmaren....and it just raised a few questions (and maybe theories) for me. *shrug*

Regarding that Nightmaren are basically the embodiment of someone's fears, there must be something (or a number of things) that each of the Nightmaren represent and say about the Dreamer's fears which they were born from. For example (and not to make fun of Elliot in any way whatsoever), some fans say that Puffy was created because Elliot might have mother issues....Not to say that's necessarily true, but it's something to think about, considering the possible emotional ties Elliot has to his mother, as well as the story behind Splash Garden....

No offense to you or Elliot, Puffy. This is merely hypothetical and should be taken with a grain of salt. ^_^;

I think the comic kinda helped explain the kid's fears, even if they didn't fight the right Nightmaren. but the problem with that is some of them already existed 100 years before the kids were born. The only ones in the comic that actually appeared out of fear were Puffy and Gulpo. a few of them didn't even fight.

Also, what's that around Wizeman's neck? Ideya?

Ideya are spheres, so, I think that Wizeman's gems are just decorations. Same with NiGHTS' diamond.
(I personally found the comic's explanation for that to be silly and unlikely XD )

and NiGHTS is trying to chase me off of my own computer so he can ask why we should have a grain of salt... I'll explain that one offline XD

Hey, Reala. We're just discussing theories about what was never quite explained in the series, trying to piece together possible explanations to these theories.

We're not trying to be idiots and spread lies. We're all just trying to figure out plausible solutions to unanswered questions.

Like I said before, all of this is merely hypothetical, as a means to bring about plausible solutions to one or more theories. It shouldn't be taken all that seriously, as they are just theories and aren't proven facts.

....Did I leave out anything in that explanation, guys? I feel like I forgot something....Mind backing me up? Please? ^_^;
