IdeyainJOD

The five Ideyas.

Ideyas (pronounced ih-dee-yah) are five colored, crystalline orbs representing dream energy. The Nightmarens steal this energy from Visitors to further their goal of destroying Nightopia. Each time an Ideya is stolen, Nightopia disappears bit by bit. Ideya represents the Visitor's consciousness in the Night Dimension. Every dreamer possesses five of them, as stated by Owl in NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, although it is often stolen by Nightmarens on the way to the Night Dimension. The name is a play on the word idea.

Nightmarens also cannot steal the visitors' red ideya with the exception of first level nightmarens.

The Five Ideya

Red Ideya of Courage

Red Ideya represents Courage. It is the rarest type of dream energy and the only type that the Nightmarens (aside from first levels) cannot steal. However in NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, Wizeman is able to steal the Red Ideya from Helen in the level Bellbridge; Will was able to restore her courage and the Red Ideya. Only a Red Ideya is capable of releasing NiGHTS from imprisonment. Embedded in NiGHTS' chest is a Red Ideya shaped like a diamond to represent that the rebellious jester had from a previous visitor who possesses an ideya of courage that was broken in the mini-series comic.
