Go To

Original air date: December 13, 2002

HIM enters the girls dreams and turns them into nightmares.

Power Noia contains examples of:

  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: The conflict between HIM and the girls takes place entirely inside the girls' dreams, and thus their heads.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: HIM assumes a truly monstrous form before confronting the girls himself, but it doesn't do him any good as they beat him to pulp just as easily as they usually do.

  • Creepy Monotone: The children in Ms. Keane's class speak this way.
  • Darker and Edgier: It's an episode with Him as the villain and it focuses on nightmares, you do the math.
  • Dream Walker: HIM when he enters the girls’ dreams. The girls themselves later on when they escape their own nightmares and team up in a Shared Dream.
  • Living Toys: These show up in Bubbles' nightmare.
  • Nightmare Sequence: A good portion of the episode focuses on the girls' individual bad dreams.
  • Series Continuity Error: This episode shows Buttercup being afraid of bugs, but this contradicts the season 1 episode Insect Inside where it was Bubbles who is terrified by a cockroach while Buttercup only considers the bug gross but not terrifying.
  • Shared Dream: The girls are given nightmares by HIM until they escape their individual dreams and team up in a shared dream to take HIM on

  • Spiders Are Scary: Buttercup certainly thinks so, and her nightmare reflects this.
  • To the Pain: The Him!dolls in Bubbles' nightmare take sadistic glee in describing how they're going to turn her into a toy herself.
  • "What Do They Fear?" Episode: Blossom’s nightmare is about her failing an important test at school, Buttercup about getting trapped in a room full of bugs, and Bubbles’ about her toys coming to life and turning on her.


How well does it match the trope?
