** Both of the protagonists' names [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin explain themselves]]. Yumeji could mean "Path to the Dream", which is his ChekhovsSkill, while Merry Nightmare, as ridiculous as it may sound, just mean merry nightmare.

Based on a manga by Yoshitake Ushiki, ''Yumekui Merry'' was adapted into an anime in the winter of 2011 by JCStaff. VideoGame/{{Touhou}} fans may recognize the author from his doujinshi work ''[[FanficRecs/{{Touhou}} Advent Cirno]]'', and the people handling the music as {{IOSYS}}.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler:Following Hercules's defeat, Shiragi Kyou has stepped forward as the new villain and deals primarily in this - he somehow fulfills the dreams of those who are hosting a Nightmare, but in the process slays the Dream Demon in question and yet somehow fixes the damage to one's dreams that this would normally cause. Those with shortsighted dreams, such as something that could be fulfilled by a singular event, seem to be almost as lost as people who lost their dreams entirely, as they now no longer have anything after which to strive. Others have come out of it surprisingly intact, but for the death of the Dream Demon.]]

** [[spoiler:Shiragi, as the new villain, seems to be specializing in inflicting this: he somehow fulfills people's dreams, at the same time killing any Dream Demon that has started to nest in them, but which has left several people feeling empty and drained after, as if now they have nothing worth striving for. Particularly harsh with Ren as he had been partnered with his Dream Demon, Quartier, and briefly forgot all about Dream Demons after Shiragi "fulfilled his dream" of restoring his collapsing family life.]]

** In at least half the glimpses we get of ''[[ShowWithinAShow Full Hell Boarder Glitchou]]'', the main character hurts his wrist or ankle. It eventually gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Merry when Yumeji complains about a sore wrist and she asks if he's pretending to be Glitchou.

[[spoiler:Takes a more serious turn when Yumeji starts having bouts of blinding pain in that same spot, that have just been getting worse.]]

* EvilGloating: Hercules ''loves'' to do this, since he's a LargeHam. It helps that he's strong enough to tank enemy attacks while barely breaking his train of thought. [[spoiler:John uses this against him in the big fight by baiting Hercules into gloating, then ending the daydream since it was in John's yard, to throw Hercules off mid-gloat.]]

* GeniusLoci[=/=]EldritchLocation: Each nightmare is not only the discrete person, but their "yard" or the field that forms around them in a daydream. So John Doe is as much the empty city that he chases Yumeji through at the very beginning, and the cat warriors who fight for him, as he is the masked cat-man who does the chasing. [[spoiler:Hercules's greatest power, as the "lighthouse", is to direct others into his own yard where he controls the shape of local reality, which means he has the home field advantage whenever he wants it]].

It seems only the nightmare whose yard in which the current daydream takes place has the power to end it, though it seems to take a few moments' concentration - meaning a nightmare can't just pick a fight and then end it when things suddenly go badly for them.

** Chris Evergreen is a dream of ''[[IncrediblyLamePun pining]]'' for an unattainable love. How fitting that [[StarCrossedLovers the inside of his cloak looks like a starry sky]].

Added DiffLines:
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Given his first line about the cruelty of meeting in a dream, Chris Evergreen seems to be a nightmare of this trope - a dream of meeting and falling in love only for it to collapse upon awakening, leaving nothing but a sense of unrequited longing when you remember the dream after. Though it's implied Chris felt something of the same thing in return for Mei. Fittingly, his appearance also prompts the collapse of Takateru and Yumeji's own unrequited crushes on Mei.

** [[spoiler: He later brings a whole army of them to help Merry and Yumeji. They can transform into cats, sans-clothing, in order to escape from being hurt then transform back again with clothing starting to form itself around them. Why yes, they ''are'' made of {{Fanservice}}, why do you ask?]]

* ClothingDamage: A non-Fanservice type happens during Merry's fight with a Dream Demon in the 6th volume. Her opponent thinks that her coattails look like eels and he rips one of them off. Merry is not amused. ** Other non-fanservice example is Yumeji, from Chapters 57 to 60, his ripped [[spoiler: and bloodied]] shirt [[spoiler:looks a lot like a dark version of [[http://www.mangareader.net/yumekui-merry/57/25 Merry's]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/yumekui-merry/59 "tails".]]]]

** [[spoiler: Engi gets one after Merry starts going berserk due to Yumeji being nearly cut in half. Especially the moment when Merry shattered all of Engi's swords, prompting Engi to try rallying her nerve while explaining her blade could keep reforming forever as long as there was moonlight, to which Merry simply lifts her hand and shatters the moon.
