A Dream Boss is a ghost Boss that is unlocked by defeating a specific living Boss and then striking their corpse with the Dream Nail. The Knight will be transported to the Dream World and must perform a short platforming sequence to reach the boss room, which will be set up in a similar fashion to the room in which the original Boss is fought.

Dream Bosses are significantly more challenging than their living counterparts, with much faster and more complex attack patterns, along with much greater health.
