Character Sheet Compact

A sheet showing of all of Yume Nikki's characters

Madotsuki meets many characters in her dreams, ranging from "ordinary" humans and animals to bizarre monstrous creatures. Regardless their appearance, none mean harm if one does neither.
The strange behaviour and expressions of the characters in Yume Nikki seem to exhibit certain personality traits. They influence a lot of the atmosphere of the game, even if they don't actually do much at all.

Many characters play a particular role in the game. Some give Madotsuki effects when she interacts with them whereas others may teleport her to different places. Others may ignore Madotsuki completely and simply loiter in the world of her dreams.

Note: Only Madotsuki, Monoe, Monoko and Medamaude have official names. All other dream characters were named by the fan community. (See talk page).
