Nightmare in Final Fantasy XII.

A great sword from the distant world of Ivalice. The blade is exquisitely crafted and rather hefty. Though it is exceptionally heavy, that weight only adds to its destructive capabilities. It is said that a captain from a distinguished house with a long history of service to the Dalmascan royal family once wielded this great sword with impressive dexterity.

A nightmare is an unpleasant dream that can cause a strong emotional response from the mind, typically fear or horror, but also despair, anxiety and sadness. The dream may contain situations of danger, discomfort, psychological or physical terror. Sufferers often awaken in a state of distress and may be unable to return to sleep for a prolonged period. The word derives from the Old English "mare", a mythological demon or goblin who torments others with frightening dreams.
