1. A parasomnia sleep disorder usually characterized by massive terror in the subject. Also, the subject usually cannot be woken up by outside means until the night terror is finished, because it takes place in the deepest stages of sleep. Night terrors may include screaming, seizures, tremors, and emotions of panic or extreme fear.

2. Nightmare, the demon within Soul Edge that posesses Sigfried Schtauffen in the Soul Edge series, becomes Night Terror in Soul Calibur III. The power of Soul Edge, combined with that of Soul Calibur and the remains of Nightmare, provided enough power to turn Soul Edge into Soul Edge (Complete). Nightmare, weielding this massive blade, gathers enough power to spawn his own body. This body is Night Terror, a red, firey-winged beast that can fire energy beams and has really cheap attacks. Night Terror cannot be rung out--if the player rings him out, a cutscene will follow showing Night Terror using his wings to fly back up and the battle will resume.

These features, unfortunatley, make Night Terror very cheap. He also cannot be unlocked.
1. Bill: "Woah, dude, Joe had a night terror last night. He was all screamin' and shit. I tried to wake him up but it didn't work, he just kept on screamin' and flailin..."

2. Sam: "Gah! This Night Terror bastard is FUCKIN CHEAP! He keeps shooting laser beams at me and I can't guard them! Damn! It'll take me a while to beat this mofo..."

Night terrors (or sleep terrors) are episodes of screaming and agitation in the middle of the night, generally in toddlers and sometimes preschoolers. They are probably best understood as a variation of sleep walking. They are technically classified as one of the parasomnias, disorders of arousal including sleep walking, sleep talking, and perhaps enuresis.
"Jake had a night terror last night, its the second one this month; he just walked in my room and was freaked out, crying and staring out into space."

The consequence for drinking way too much for around 10 years. You have made x amount of trips to gin lane, had x amount of blue mondays, and now, it's time to pay. Every time you go to sleep, you believe yourself to be attacked by a variety of animals. Cobras, Rattlers and Scorpions all make a guest appearance in the sham known as your life under the covers.
What was that?
Ah, man dad's night terrors are happening again....
