** Outside of story, doesn't take fighting against [[spoiler:Pyrrha Ω]] very well, and slips into [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone regret if he wins]]. The look on his face and more depressed facial expression during his usually cocky animation stands out.

* Foil: To Pyrrha. She starts the game being victimized by people because of their unjust assumption that she's a criminal. Patroklos starts the game as one of those people.

* HeroicBSOD: He gets a big one after realizing that [[spoiler:all of those people Dumas had him kill were actually innocent people, not Malfested]]. This comes within literal minutes of him discovering [[spoiler:Dumas is actually Nightmare in disguise, and that his sister is Malfested]]. Needless to say, he doesn't take the triple-whammy well.

-->'''Patroklos''': Malfested? My own sister!?


Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: If he wins a match against [[spoiler:Pyrrha Ω]], he drops his weapon and kneels over in horror at what he's done.
-->'''Patroklos''': It can't end, not like this!

* {{Badass}}: Anyone who has the guts to [[spoiler:take on Nightmare and ''win'']] deserves this acclaim.

* CharClone: As "Graf Dumas".Dumas", as he wears a mask over the upper half of his face to hide his identity.



* LightningBruiser: ''New Legends of Project Soul'' describes him of being capable of singlehandedly decimating entire armies with Soul Edge's power flooding his body. His legendary combat prowess was what caused the Emperor to take interest in him, and give Dumas to political strength he needed to enact his plan.

* MonkeyKingLite: He's meant to pretty much evoke Sun Wukong, and he's doing a better, more obvious job than Kilik.

Origin - ''[[MadeOfEvil The living incarnation of the cursed sword, Soul Edge]]''
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/knightmare_5220.png]]

Weapon(s) - [[LivingWeapon Soul Edge - Great Sword]]

-->''"Blood! Darkness! I shall drown the world in both!"''

-> '''Voiced By:''' [[spoiler:Creator/YasunoriMasutani]] (Japanese), [[spoiler:Charles Klausemayer]] (English)

-> After the original Nightmare was slain by Siegfried, Soul Edge was reassembled by its servants between ''IV'' and ''V'' with a new host. Taking the name of "Dumas", the new Nightmare decided to forgo [[KillAllHumans all-out slaughter]] in favor of subterfuge and politics. He ingratiated himself with the court of Emperor Rudolf II and became the Graf of Hungary, from which he instigated a crusade against the "Malfested", actually innocent civilians. This new body is slain by Z.W.E.I, and Pyrrha succeeds him as the wielder of Soul Edge, becoming [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Pyrrha Omega]].

->For tropes applying to the original Nightmare, see [[Characters/{{Soulcalibur}} here]].

* {{BFS}}: Soul Edge specifically altered Graf Dumas' memories so that it could retain this form.
* BigBadEnsemble: Competes for the title with [[DragonAscendant Tira]] and [[spoiler:his counterpart, [[LightIsNotGood Elysium]]]].
* CharClone: As "Graf Dumas".
* TheChessmaster: In contrast [[BloodKnight to]] [[KillEmAll his]] [[ForTheEvulz predecessor]], this Nightmare operates primarily through manipulation, subterfuge, and politicking. Justified, as Soul Edge had become cautious following its prior defeat.
* ContinuityNod: Nightmare's look in ''V'' incorporates elements from ''all'' of the character's past outfits from ''Soulcalibur'' to ''Soulcalibur IV'', although ''II'' is the most prevalent thanks to the bat-wing projections and mane of red hair. He wields a version of Soul Edge nearly identical to the sword's original, pre-''IV'' depiction.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Ultimately defeated by Z.W.E.I. in Chapter 18, leaving [[spoiler:Elysium]] as the FinalBoss.
* EvilChancellor: To Emperor Rudolf II as Graf Dumas.
* EvilRedhead: Similar to the previous Nightmare in ''II'', he has a long mane of red hair.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Though there is much less distortion in his voice compared to the previous Nightmare, both actors use a booming voice in comparison to his "Dumas" identity.
* ExtraStrengthMasquerade: His story-line in ''V'' reveals that he operates behind the scenes under the alias "Graf (Count) Dumas," ruler of the Kingdom of Hungary.
* {{Foil}}: In comparison to the original Nightmare. Whereas the original Nightmare was a hellbent murderer who did everything ForTheEvulz and had little in the way of schemes, this Nightmare is a [[PragmaticVillainy pragmatic]] {{chessmaster}} who manipulates his way to the top through politics, all with the masterplan to TakeOverTheWorld. Another notable difference between the two is that the original put emphasis on himself ("you shall become my nourishment", "I want to hear your anguish"), while this Nightmare places emphasis on his weapon ("My blade has no equal!", "You only exist so that my sword skewers you!"). This is highlighted in-universe by Tira, who ''hates'' this Nightmare, viewing him as weak in-comparison to the original.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:A cunning nobleman seeking to create the perfect world for the sake of his daughter, who has had little to no actual bearing in the story proper, now takes center stage as the villain]].
* InTheHood: His 2P outfit. It makes him look like a less-clothed [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 Noob Saibot]].
* LargeHam: While this Nightmare has shown to be very different from the previous, this remains the same.
* LegacyCharacter: This Nightmare is a completely different from the one in the previous games, with a new host and new personality.
* ReplacementGoldfish: ''New Legends of Project Soul'' reveals that Graf Dumas was one for Siegfried, with Soul Edge attempting to maintain its zweihander form while still taking a new host. It was dissatisfied with the results, [[spoiler:which is why it was happy to select Pyrrha as its next host]].
* ReplacementScrappy: An in-universe example. Tira ''hates'' what he's become because he's no longer slaughtering everything left, right, and centre and is instead trying to control the world rather than destroy everything on-sight. Tira being Tira, she believes that this is because he's an ''impostor''.
* TakeOverTheWorld: His ultimate goal. Seeing as how Soul Edge takes on the memories and personality of its host, with Siegfried, he fought rather recklessly without much strategy. [[spoiler:With Raphael as his host, however, Nightmare has become Soul Calibur's equivalent to [[CodeGeass Zero]], as his new modus operandi involves manipulating governments to his advantage so he can secretly rebuild his malfested army of soulless slaves to rule Europe]].
* TinTyrant: Of course.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: How does he fool everyone as Graf Dumas with his [[BodyHorror giant]] [[ObviouslyEvil clawed]] [[RedRightHand arm]]? By hiding it and assuming a more presentable appearance, that's how.
* WalkingSpoiler: The true identity of "Graf Dumas", the host he possesses in ''V'', spoils the sudden changes in his design and personality. [[spoiler:He is actually Raphael.]]
