“What I really want to do as your queen is...to see the world's end with you”
― No Name
The guild showed up out of nowhere and has been expanding at an incredible speed. They are not just made up of Nightmares anymore, but they are also recruiting normal users as well. Their headcount has been rising at an astonishing rate and they had even managed to rally the demon clan that were on the trapped in the outskirts. The demons were Nightmarized and on top of that, they can share skills, using Karma. By injecting karma into the the user, they destroy the rules of the world.
New Nightmare won every battle. One by one they conquered Lucid Adventure. With infinite dummy soldiers, Nightmare Players, Chimera Monsters and joined by the Demon Clan, they were the ultimate power. The biggest reason they could gain so much strength in such a short time is because of the endless battle between the other factions who competed to be the first to see the game's ending. When a faction gest defeated by the Nightmares, their opponent only used it as an opportunity to start an even bigger was. Players killed by Nightmare lost both their characters and their memories of ever playing Lucid Adventure.
Nightmare's threat forced the big 4 guilds to have an armistice. They held a summit and formed the Players' Union to counter the threat of Nightmare. This initiated the Great War between the Player's Union and Nightmare's Allied Forces.
According to the Dragon of Light, New Nightmare is trying to open the door that leads to the other world. If they open the door, the two worlds will be collapse on one another.
By the time The Great War had started, 90% of the known monsters had been Nightmarized which further bolstered Nightmares forces.

New Nightmare's strength rapidly increases with each player deleted from Lucid Adventure and with each NPC/Named Monster (including Dragons) recruited into their guild. They won every battle until the Four Major Guilds formed the Players' Union in order to fight back against New Nightmare.
Beings under New Nightmare are innately capable of using Nightmare abilities which immensely bolsters their overall powers and capabilities without any drawbacks.
Their allies are also able to access Nightmare through Nightmarization which can evolve them into a higher being, granting them incredible power but inevitably lose their minds in the process and become a rampaging monster that destroys everything in their path.
The Nightmares decided to form a group and find No Name, who is the last daughter of Zero, and make her their Queen. At some point earlier in the timeskip, they were able to find and convince No Name to be their Queen, creating New Nightmare Guild as a result.
New Nightmare had completely subjugated Lakiren Castle, destroying the last resistance within and taking the divine item from them.
Squadron 3 was able to get the divine item from Crosswalk of Moon whilst Squadron 7 was too late and destroyed the dungeon.
New Nightmare won and conquered every battle until it was announced that the Four Major Guilds had formed a union. They then stopped attacking the Guilds and carefully planned their next strategy.
Beyond the Boundary Arc
Ever since the Player's Union, New Nightmare's territories were sharply decreasing, losing two of the Demon Princes immediately. The Nightmare Players had been ranked and have begun to hunt down the rankers who were hunting them as well.
Notes & Trivia
- '신 악몽' literally means 'New Nightmare'. Line Webtoon has translated this as 'New Nightmare Guild'.
- The New Nightmare symbol is a combination of the Nightmare yellow eyes and a turtle symbol that was used by Zara Guild. This is because No Name has links to Armes that has not been explained as of yet.
- They were first referred to as New Nightmare by Sora.
