Nightwalker is an undead/reaper-type enemy from Final Fantasy XII. It lurks in the Subterra area of the Pharos, but do not spawn easily; one will need to spend at least seven minutes in the Subterra, and Nightwalker will appear in any of the rooms of the Penumbra, Umbra, and Abyssal near the Pedestal of Night.

Like other reapers, Nightwalkers can teleport, and the party cannot attack them mid-teleport. They sometimes drop the Renewing Morion light armor headgear that gives Auto-Regen.

In the Ward of Measure of the Stilshrine of Miriam the player can find Nightwalker's two lesser variants, Reaper Claw and Reaper Mage, that spawn near the Way Stone after Judge Bergan is defeated.

Thus are called those reapers, deities of death, that wander the darkness devouring the souls of men. Some are known for the strength of their blades, others for the strength of their magicks. They are feared as demons for their cruelty, and indeed the sight of them devouring a man's soul is said to be worse than a lifetime of torture, yet, oddly, the expressions left upon the faces of those whose souls have been devoured are not masks of pain, but of beatific calm. This has led some to speculate that it is not, perhaps, the Inferno to which they bear their victims, but Paradise.
