Nightmares are spun from the most twisted visions of the denizens of Ashan. Horror surrounds this creature and even the bravest warriors have difficulty finding the strength to raise their swords when a Nightmare attacks. The Fright Aura around this creature is such that its foes lose morale bonuses when it is nearby.OffBck

The nightmare is the upgrade of the hell charger, the fifth-level creature of the Inferno in Heroes of Might and Magic V.

It has much better stats than its predecessor, and is well worth the cost. The added Fright Aura is also quite useful.


Large Creature- The creature takes up 2x2 squares on the battlefield.

Demonic- This creature belongs to Inferno. The Chain shot by Succubus mistress does not affect it.

Fear Attack- When attacking theres a chance that the enemey target will panic and run to the edge of the battelfield without first retaliating, and losing its initiative. (Will not work on creatures with Mind Control Immunity)

Fright Aura- All enemies positioned on tiles adjacent to this creature get their morale reduced by -3.
