The 'Dream Eaters] (ドリームイーター Dorīmu ītā?) are the new enemies that appear in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. There are two types of Dream Eaters: ones that "eat dreams and plant nightmares", referred to as Nightmare Dream Eaters, and ones that "eat nightmares", referred to as Spirit Dream Eaters. The Dream Eaters are the form darkness takes in the sleeping worlds as Heartless and Nobodies cannot enter.
Dream Eaters, as stated, have two species — Spirits and Nightmares. They all seem to be animal-based, similar to some Heartless. Spirits are usually light-colored and have black eyes with various shaped pupils. Nightmares are usually darker in coloration, similar to a Heartless's palette, but their glowing eyes are red and get darker towards the center
There many different types of Dream Eaters, but they can help provide Sora and Riku with abilities as well as aid in combat. Additionally, the colors of your party's Dream Eaters can be customized.
The Dream Eaters in your party will level up; this will be related to Sora's and Riku's own leveling. It is also possible to have multiple Dream Eaters in combat at the same time. The Dream Eaters do not approach anyone and consume dreams in the Realm of Sleep where there are no Heartless.
If Sora/Riku don't use the power of the Dream Eaters, they can't go to the other worlds. Wonder Meow is Sora's first Spirit, Komory Bat is Riku's, and Necho Cat appears to be the spirit that Neku Sakuraba gets. The player is also able to change the colors of the Dream Eaters.
Sora and Riku are both able to make the Dream Eaters with the Dream Pieces they obtain on their adventure. Sacrificing more then the required amount will further assist Sora/Riku in powering the Dream Eater up.
