Bomamba, also known as Bomamba the Witch, is a second-level nightmaren created by Wizeman in NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. She is the boss for Helen Cartwright's Crystal Castle dream.


Bomamba is a typical old wicked witch who has green skin and big, yellow, cat-like eyes and a black cat's tail. She's wearing a black long sleeve dress with red bells and a purple collar, and a pointy dark purple hat. She has no legs, and instead balances on a gold top-like part. Her cat minions are black, and they balance on their tails (due to a lack of a body).


Bomamba's cats play a role in attacking the player and in defeating her. In the first fight, she creates a magic seal with rails and holes in it. The player moves the seal around to try to get the black cats into the holes. In the second fight, the rails are removed, and when all of the cats are gone, another seal and wave of cats appears, with the holes on top of little hills.


Bomamba's arena is a typical witch's lair with stained glass windows featuring cat faces, an opening in the ceiling that reveals the moon and stars, and a gigantic bubbling cauldron down below her. A few bottles of what is most likely poison are also found lying around.



  • The name of Bomamba's theme is "Bony Bomamba".
  • Bomamba was a replacement of a beta Snake-like character.
