Threadbear (second-in-command), Hoodwinks
“If I can't have a good night's sleep then why should anyone else? From now on sweet dreams have been cancelled!”

Nitekap is the main antagonist of 40 Winks. He seems to hold high authority in the land of dream as his resemblance can be found throughout the six dream realms.

He orchestrated a plan to kidnap the winks and trap them in nightmares to spite the rest of the world and ensure they would suffer a similar insomnia to his own.

It is revealed at the end of the game that the source of his insomnia is the clock in his bedroom, which ticks so loudly that he cannot sleep. After Ruff and Tumble destroy it, he becomes somewhat nicer.

It is unexplained as to how he got control of the hoodwinks in the first place.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Nitekap is possibly based off Ebenezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Both are elderly gentlemen who are insomniacs known for their cold approach and bad temper.
  • Though he is the main antagonist, he is not actually fought by the player as a boss.
