What are Nightmares?

Nightmares are the bosses of Link's Awakening. They are always found at the very end of a dungeon, and must be defeated in order to progress through the game (with the exception of Hardhit Beetle, who is in an optional dungeon). Defeating the first 8 Nightmares will earn you both a Heart Container and one of the Instruments of the Sirens needed to wake the Wind Fish.
