The Nightmare Bestiary will discuss all of the various creatures that can be found in The Nightmare, a massive domain housing many zones, oddities, and things beyond the Frontier's comprehensions. Each 'monsters' boast different abilities, behaviors, and loots, and some 'monsters' are zone-specific. Not all monsters, however, are considered as 'monsters.' Some of them may be non-hostile entities, such as the Running Man and the Caught Man.
All listed mobs will be ranked on how difficult it is. The list is organized in alphabetical order.

Monsters are ranked and evaluated by a combination of means, such as difficulty, survival rate, speed, damage and frequency of attacks. There is a total of 8 ranks, beginning from S+ as the highest rank and F as the lowest rank. The ranking of these mobs are focused on breaking up the difficulty as much as possible. These ranks will give players an idea of which mobs should be avoided until they are prepared.Mobs that have (+) after their specific rank are a hybrid of their tier and considered more powerful. As an example, Circus is ranked in the S+ Tier, along with the mob Democan. They are not considered equal, however Democan is too powerful to be in a tier below. To solve this, Circus is given an additional (+) indicator which is shown as Circus (+).
Mobs that are ranked as "S+" are mobs that are considered some of the most difficult mobs that can be found in the game. These mobs are capable of dealing huge amounts of damage to even experienced players. Attacks and mechanics are sometimes unpredictable and/or not easy-to-remember.

Mobs that are ranked as "A" are mobs that are likely to pose some level of threat to all players. These mobs are capable of dealing lots of damage towards the players making them bigger threats if the players fail to react quickly. Dangerous by itself, but even more dangerous when chasing players with other mob’s. Dodging attacks may prove to be quite difficult without the right equipment to counteract it.
Mobs that are ranked as "B" are mobs that have the potential to pose a great threat to players. These mobs may be better when it comes to damage and speed, so players who are poorly-equipped may be at a great disadvantage when encountering it.

They are typically underestimated by inexperienced players and can throw them off-guard. A few of their attacks are capable of inflicting moderate damage over time or otherwise hindering their abilities to attack. They pose a threat regardless of whether or not they are found in groups or by themselves.
Mobs that are ranked as "E" are mobs that have the potential to pose a threat to poorly equipped players. These mobs may be better when it comes to damage, so players who are poorly-equipped may be at a disadvantage when encountering/attacking it. They pose more of a threat compared to the mobs listed under F-tier, but are weaker to more dangerous mobs above it. They deal enough damage that could take down inexperienced players quickly. They are dangerous in groups but are weak by themselves.
Mobs that are ranked as "F" are mobs that can easily be killed by players, They do not pose much of a threat as they are unable to inflict a large amount of damage upon the players.
