I've seen speculation across the nation...er...forums...so I was wondering...what do you think?

I personally think hat, but I've seen a lot of people say horns.

It clearly blows in the wind so it has to be a hat. unless he has some really really tiny horns. :o

I also don't know why people think NiGHTS has really really long hair under the hat. I support the hat being part of his head, but hair is possible too. But I don't see how he can have long hair! It won't fit under that hat! Oh well. Its a dream realm. Nothing makes sense.

I unfortunately agree with you that its a hat that blows in the wind however, it would a great character flaw to have. (horns that is)

I've always felt that NiGHTS, along with Reala, is wearing a hat.

Huh? Pie?

Or we could go with the logical of nothing at all but space... since if you take the hat graphic off some how through the game sprite there would be nothing... (Did that make sense?)

Thats the most scariest thing I saw in years...

(That real picture not being as scary as the NiGHTS decapitation for some reason...)

I use to say just a hat (at least, for Jackle it is), but now I think NiGHTS is hiding some LONG BLONDE HAIR and horns :3.

SUSPi does x3, but his hair isn't as long as NiGHTS's because NiGHTS is older.

Yea...I picked pie! What of it!? I am soo hungry right now TmT.

I say its a hat, it flops in the wind. If your horns flop in the wind, i suggest you see a doctor ASAP. Why do you have horns in the first place? is another story.

I lol'd.

I picked horns. I /know/ it's a hat because of the flopping and such, but...NiGHTS and Reala are 'dream demons', yes? Demons have horns. XD I choose to see him as having horns, even though it's obviously a hat.

btw: I want pie now. D=

Personally, I consider NiGHTS' "hat" to be part of his head. Honestly!
It's kind of a given that they aren't really horns, regardless of popular belief, as they do indeed move around. That, and haven't we seen some pictures of NiGHTS with his "horns" in positions different that the typical jesterlike shape?
However, just because it's not horns or hair doesn't mean it's a hat. NiGHTS isn't human, after all, he's a dream entity...he doesn't have any wrists or neck, either, he doesn't have to have a regular head!

But that's just my opinion. Maybe Darkburraki had the right ideas? ^_^

In other words, I see them as both hat and horns, depending on the situation.

I always figured it was a hat. It only makes sense. Plus if you look at the sketch art for him, you can plainly see its a hat.

I have observed also that it flaps in the wind, but only a little bit. If the whole thing were more than a hat, we would expect considerably more variation of motion, especially if there was nothing or only hair underneath.

I'm certain that this has been suggested before, but what about the possibility of horns beneath the hat? The Japanese title DREAMDEMON suggests the possibility of horns, and while it is true that not all artistic rendetions of demons possess horns, it is common enough for serious consideration.

It is true that some of SEGA's concept art sketches show the "hat" standing upright. As far as I know, however, this never happens in the actual game; those drawings thus have no more canonical authority than the super skinny or midget NiGHTS designs considered for use in Journey of Dreams. Of course, however, a definite conclusion cannot be reached without authoritive evidence of the intentions of the design team, but I feel that a hat over horns stands as a substantial possibility.

Thoughts?

They don't blow just a little in JoD...his hat is almost never in it's usual position while he's flying.

personally i think he can choose to have the horns, or not (shape shifter) ... the hat is a hat, no mistaking that. (unintentional rhyme)
but i also like to think that they are horns that can wave in the wind... or be hard whenever... who says they have horns that have to be rock hard all the time?

...wait, what?

That would certainly rule out horns... but I never noticed that. ;) I'll have to pay more careful attention from now on.

That's exactly what I was thinking about what you wrote. :P

NiGHTS doesn't have a physical body, and thus, it could be anything.
BUT!
I am going with hat! with blonde hair under it. And no horns.

That, or Pie

Hat, but I do believe something needs to be under there to give it its shape, that I don't know but I think its safe to say there mostlikey horns. I mean jester hats are shaped like that anyway so I don't say there horns because of the shape, but because of what they are. and I know Purg you made a good point that demons have horns and they are not necessarily demons, but they do represent beings that are out to scare the living crap out of people, manifest in to our worst fears, and I could see a demon doing the same. Demons are also just a good ploy to tag, bad, evil or antagonist on something XD

I am apparently the only vote for HAIR!

Actually I think it is a hat. But I like to think that NiGHTS has long hair that he manages to fit into the hat and if he took it off it would look like hair-horns.

I reckon he has a long mane of rugged jester hair (looks all shiney like synthetic hair) and he hides it under a hat. HAT HAIR!!

I had always thought NiGHTS hat/horns were a sort of growth not as in horns but as just the shape of NiGHTS head... kinda like the hump of a camel... ya know? or a tumor... :(

My theory is that Wizeman created his Marens out of items he purchased from a hobby store. So basically NiGHTS, Jackle, and Reala's hats are superglued to their heads.
