Welcome to your nightmare!

— Reala, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Reala (リアラ Riara?) (pronounced ree-all-a) is one of the primary antagonists of the NiGHTS series. A first-level Nightmaren created to be Wizeman's right hand along with NiGHTS, Reala is obedient towards his creator and leads the Nightmaren army. In contrast to NiGHTS' kind and inviting personality, Reala is cruel and insidious. Due to their equal skills and opposing personalities, NiGHTS and Reala are strong rivals.


Reala's two primary colors are red and black. Reala wears a Persona Mask on his face in NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams as a symbol of loyalty to Wizeman.
