Can someone make a list of the various ages of NiGHTS in the fanfics on this site? It ought to be interesting to see what comes up.

The only problem is that NiGHTS' age rarely comes up in fanfiction. I can only recall one, maybe two fics doing that.

No need to be sorry, it's not like there's a giant debate about it :blink:

How 'bout the question of whether or not NiGHTS is invincible. Because, from my perspective he can't die. He can be attacked a ton and still won't get knocked unconcious or anything.

It's probably only because of the childrenz. Because you cannot 'die' in a dream (as in, really die), every hit just makes them closer to waking up. If NiGHTS was alone, he'd probably just as vulnerable as the Nightopians (but actually able to fight and thus not be quite as vulnerable...ugh...I'm confusing myself)

Though, that being said.... whatever NiGHTS' age is, he's certainly looking veeery sexy for it. Must be eating all those healthy salads and taking regular walks around dreamland.



Maaah. So wrong. O_o




Perhaps time doesn't pass in Nightopia? I mean, they don't have seasons or anything. They have different dreamscapes for that.

Not sure if you know this, Nephenee, but time passes in JoD.

So... there you go.

Going by an online clock would be so much less effective than going by the internal clock. It would take more code and it would be less reliable and no developer in his/her right mind would do it that way.

But we're getting off the subject.

Huh, never gave NiGHTS' age a thought before. Personally I dont think he ages. I think he just stays the way he is, maybe changing a little bit here and there but no real aging. Wizeman seems old though so maybe they age incredibly slow or something XD; Who knows.

Well, when we dream we sometimes dream of the past. We sometimes dream of the future, too. This is something we are unable to do in the waking and only seems to be possible in dreams (until they invent a time machine). The way i see it is, in dreams, time is a very different thing. I don't think we can explain 'time' in dreams.

Though, that being said.... whatever NiGHTS' age is, he's certainly looking veeery sexy for it. Must be eating all those healthy salads and taking regular walks around dreamland. :P



I think NiGHTS might be hundreds of years old, But I do agree with DiGi He does look very sexy for it! ^_^

I not sure but I would guess that Reala is much older than NiGHTS, or they could be the same age! ^_^

Well,NiGHTS must be pretty old (but damn good lookin') for his age.
I mean he has been snooping in people's dreams for a while.
I say as long as people have been dreaming,NiGHTS was there......
so NiGHTS must be pretty old.My best guess.

Actually, as long as people have been dreaming, WIZEMAN'S been there. We know nothing about when these Nightmaren were created, but they DEFINITELY haven't been around as long as Wizeman. (actually, it's impossible for them to be as old as or older than him anyway)

Well, in mah Fan-fiction (FULL OF MARY-SUES OF COURSE (LOL, JK) ), NiGHTS is OVER 9000 *SHOT*.

No, seriously. NiGHTS is about 250 Nightmaren or Human years old in mah fanfic.

NiGHTS probably is really a lot older than that. NiGHTS's existence probably dates back to Caveman times >3.

So, in reality, NiGHTS may well be over 9000. That's pretty f*!*ing sweet, if you ask me.

WHAT 9,000?! ;)
He's over nine THOUSAAAAAAND!!!!! LOL Meme! ^_^ Seriously, I think he's 23 or 24 years old. In another time zone...such as my dreamland Imaginaria....love dat place...the original time zones were jacked up by the TiME Mages of Torraltown(where the TiME Marens and Third-eye Click live) and slowed it, causing them to age like humans. It didn't really effect them though, its just a 1,000 year difference between Nightopia. So, yeah. I think he's much younger than what y'all sayin'. Just my opinion.

I think that NiGHTS is ageless. Maybe she was born the way she looks now, born an 'adult-ish' being.
Mwuahaha.

Maybe NiGHTS would continue to exist if there are still people around who believe in him. Even if he were to be crushed by the hand of Wizeman and his Maren, NiGHTS would just get right back up. Slow at first, but then picking up the pace again, if not faster than before. Because Clairis and Elliot, William and Helen believe in him.

We do to, and we don't have to be in the same area as him, he gains power from us. Not stealing it, but shares it with us, and our wishes and faith in her fills her with energy.

NiGHTS lives as long as this relationship lasts.
(Which will be a very, VERY long time.)

I don't like mainstream anime much though; most of it isn't very good anyway....
NiD NiGHTS seemed like he was...eh, ten or eleven. That's based on my six-year-old mentality XP. JoD NiGHTS seemed to be in his early teens, seeing as how he sounded much like a pre/early teens girl and tended towards teen slang ('like,' 'cool,' and such. he didn't actually use 'teen slang' but the dialogue seemed to lean towards it). His playfulness, gullibility (coughRealacough >.>), and impulsive tendency to throw caution to the wind also add to the younger feel I get from him. Personally though, I think he and the other marens are fixed at the age Wizeman created them at. Immortal unless Wizeman gets sick of them- but then, why didn't he just kill NiGHTS rather than imprison him?

And I can so see NiGHTS wearing ty-dye, bellbottoms, and a garish headband. C:

I almost agree. I say fnarflop and a half.

Seriously, I think he is ageless. As it has been said, he's fixed at the age at which he was created IMO.

He looks about 25 to me. I don't know. He just doesn't seem mature enough for 30, and he's a little too mature to be a kid. Hmmm.... This is messy territory we're stepping into, folks....

well, i think that the since the marens are supposed to be scary in some way shape or form... that he would have to have been made during some time period where the whole jester thing would be practical. there were probably other marens that came before but then became obsolete for some reason or another and aren't really seen anymore. chances are the whole clown thing became a pattern because it seems to be a common fear that never really went away.

so i say he was probably made at some point during the middle ages. that's my theory.

Personally, I think NiGHTS doesn't really age....or at least look it. He could be as old as dreams began and he would STILL look like he's in his late teens or something as long as there are dreams (aka as long as beings can think). Well...that's just my opinion.....And I DO believe there can be a way to kill nightmaren, not that I'd try it of coarse, but I hightly doubt it'd be easy!

NiGHTS shall live forever!! :mellow:

I concur.
NiGHTS, from what I've theorized what with the absolute control people can have during lucid dreams, can manipulate time around himself as well as his body, and therefore make it go backwards and such to be whatever "age" he wishes, if any.

There is more to say but i end it like this for now.
hmm... you know i've been wondering that too what is NiGHTS age other then that NiGHTS probably does age but that dosen't mean NiGHTS will turn old and stuff. NiGHTS would still look the same. Hmm... I don't know i m just saying NiGHTS dosen't age

He doesn't age, but instead was created to look and act the way he does now. But, the question that everyone seems to be wondering....

WHEN was he created? He doesn't "age", per sey, so when was he created? How old is he? Was he just POOF there he is in 1996 when NiD came out? Or was it something more?

Deep, philisophical questions about a man in skin tight purple pants.

:angry: To be expected from gamers, no less. In any case, Uhobi's middle ages theory seems logical. Wizeman would have to have gotten the inspiration for jester-themed maren somewhere, and jesters can be pretty freakin' scary. He saw little kids having nightmares about them and thought they looked cool. Lol i dunno. As for the practical part, well, NiGHTS was originally one of Wizeman's lackeys- a jester theme fits the role.

So probably during or sometime after the middle ages, I'd assume.
