Played more seriously later on, as he has nightmares in WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee and he keeps waking up with anxiety attacks. In the ''The Sixth Day'' review, apparently this still happens.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/SunlessSea'' also implements nightmares, which will happen if you arrive at London with very high Terror. Notably, these nightmares are a concrete thing (like having nightmares about a vast eye that never stops watching you) rather than ''Fallen London'''s vague Nightmares stat. Having restful nights at home will help in dealing when they come for you at zee, as otherwise they'll shoot up your terror rather quickly.

The instant Bob wakes (often [[CatapultNightmare by bolting upright in bed]]), he will be back to normal. However, dread of more nightmares makes him likely to become TheInsomniac, which can prove dangerous if these are RecurringDreams. If he woke everyone else up with his screaming, he will apologize for disturbing them. Usually. But he also usually won't tell them what made him scream. (Every once in a while this vulnerable moment opens the door for Bob to tell someone else about his trauma; this can be [[EpiphanyTherapy unrealistically beneficial]].) If Bob also suffers from GoMadFromTheIsolation, he will often not be able to remember that he is safe until several moments after waking.
