* PartsUnknown: His [[AllThereInTheManual official bio]] is surprisingly scant on detail, with his birthplace, age, date of birth, blood-type and even his real name simply listed as "unknown". This is in stark contrast to the far more detailed bios of the rest of the cast. Whether these details were left out to simply [[MysteriousPast enhance his mystery]], or that he (arguably) is a more [[ArtShift otherworldly character]] than the rest of the cast and is therefore more difficult to categorise in a [[MagicRealism real-world setting]], remains open to debate....

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: His alias can be considered a clue to his true identity, since [[spoiler:Creator/AlexandreDumas was the French author of Literature/TheThreeMusketeers and Graf Dumas is actually Raphael, who is French and sometimes even looks like a musketeer.]]

* CharClone: As "Graf Dumas", as he wears a mask over the upper half of his face to hide his identity. [[spoiler:He can wear the mask in-game, if you design a helmetless costume for him in Character Creation - The mask is a unique prop that automatically covers his eyes if no other face-concealing items are on his head.]]



* InterfaceSpoiler: [[spoiler:If you load Nightmare into Character Creation and opt to craft a custom outfit for him, you get to see him without his helmet, revealing that he is none other than Raphael.]] Downplayed somewhat, in that this is never directly revealed in the game itself, only indirectly hinted at.



%%* LightningBruiser: Gameplaywise, Nightmare hits hard and fast, and has decent defence to back him up.



* 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.

* {{Bishounen}}: Like most male characters, he is designed to a clean face and other features typical of the trope.

to:

* {{Bishounen}}: Like most of the young male characters, he is designed to with a clean face and other features typical smooth, handsome face, though he goes one step further with his mop of the trope.cherubic blond hair, evoking Classical Greek sculptures of beautiful young men.



* DefrostingIceQueen: At the start, he's a complete prick who only wants to find his sister and kill all malfested who stand in his way. By the end, he's found his true resolve and becomes much more focused. His battle quotes still retain just a ''teeny tiny'' bit of arrogance in them.

After discovering that Graf Dumas was Nightmare and his sister was Malfested, Patroklos flees to Schwarzwind and explains what happened. He has a vision of Elysium, an angelic woman who claims to be his mother and tells him she will guide him and asks he restore Soul Calibur to its full power. Siegfried and Z.W.E.I test his resolve to fight Nightmare even if it means having to kill his sister, but Patroklos reaffirms his desire to save Pyrrha. Soul Calibur transforms into a katana-like sword, and Patroklos sets out to restore it with the help of Ivy, Lexia, Natsu, and Xiba. Once Soul Calibur is restored, Elysium informs Patroklos that the only way to save Pyrrha is to put her out her misery. Taking up Soul Calibur, Patroklos coldly kills Pyrrha, sealing Soul Edge in crystal and bringing about a new age of order as Soul Calibur's host. Patroklos then awakens in Astral Chaos, realizing he never saved anyone, and with advice from Edge Master returns to the world at the moment where Soul Calibur is restored. This time he turns down Elysium, who throws him back into Astral Chaos. With Edge Master's help, Patroklos asserts his will and escapes, facing Pyrrha once more. Elysium tries to take over him, revealing herself to be the will of Soul Calibur, but Patroklos defeats her, and with Pyrrha's help sends both swords into Astral Chaos. The two siblings reconcile, and walk off together.

In order to save Patroklos from Nightmare, Pyrrha succumbs to her Malfestation. When Nightmare retreats, Pyrrha tests Patroklos' resolve to be with her, causing him to run away in fear and confusion. Returning to Tira, she kills Z.W.E.I. and takes Soul Edge, becoming its new host when it promises to never abandon her. Fighting with Patroklos, who had become Soul Calibur's host, Pyrrha was knocked out and separated from Soul Edge. When she regained consciousness, Pyrrha saw her brother encased in crystal by Soul Calibur, and resolved to become a stronger person. Suppressing Soul Edge's will, she helps free Patroklos and they send both swords into Astral Chaos. The two siblings reconcile, and walk off together.

In a seemingly opposite situation compared to ''III'''s KOS-MOS example, Devil Jin's moveset is exclusive to custom characters, with the appropriate Create-a-Soul parts available for purchase as part of the first Tekken parts pack. To get the Soul (read: fighting style) of Devil Jin, one must defeat the ghost Harada TEKKEN, who uses his style, in Quick Battle mode, or reach Player Level 5.
