Urotsuki's dreams are home to many different characters. This page is for the more significant minor characters in the game: those who react to Urotsuki. Note that nearly all the names are non-canonical.
Effect Get Characters
These are some of the many characters that populate Urotsuki's Dreams. They all have some form of significance, from unlocking wallpapers and puzzles to interesting reactions from effects. These are sorted by authors:
Two twins that serve as portals. The Black Beret Sister is located in the Dark Room's theatre and transports you to the Snowy Pipe Organ upon interaction, leading to her blue twin, who stands in the way of a door to reach Atlantis. The only way to get pass her is by using the Boy, Gakuran, or Wolf effect, or using the Chainsaw on her. Her beret will be left on the ground if chainsawed. Alternatively, interacting with the Blue Beret Sister will cause her to swap places with you, allowing you to pass. Interacting with the Black Beret Sister will grant Kura Puzzle #14.
Found in the southernmost room in the Dark Room. Each time you enter, she is found either sitting in her chair and reading a book or standing up, looking at the books in her bookcase. The Telephone effect can be found here, thanks to her moving pet telephone. If you use it on her while she is reading, she'll leave her book on the chair and fly away. Interacting with the book takes you to the Art Gallery. If you chainsaw her and interact with the left side of her bookcase, you can look at a page in a book that features pictures of her.
She is visible from The Monster's Jaw by using the Telephone effect and looking off the edge. She and her telephone will be sleeping, and Oni Musume will have her book on her face while lying down on her couch.
Oni Musume also seems to strongly resemble Remilia Scarlet from Touhou Project in terms of appearance only with pigtails or with some sort of hair accessory in her hair (which could either be bows or hairclips going by the sprite). Her location and behaviour seems to be based on another Touhou character, Patchouli Knowledge.
Found sitting on a chair in the Dark Room, and turns his head if you use the Telephone effect. He can also be seen for a second time in the room to the left of Tapir-San's Place, sitting in a chair and sometimes watching a ghost of Urotsuki sleeping on the floor.
Odorika is a cyclops dancer located in Red Streetlight World, in the center of a large circle of streetlights. She is shown wearing a red oriental dress, with bandages covering where her eyes should be and a large third eye in the middle of her forehead. Two small white rabbits dance beside her under a lone streetlight.
Using the Maiko effect to bow in front of her triggers a full-screen event, in which you can see her dancing side-to-side with her two rabbits. Viewing this event will unlock wallpaper #20.
Odorika's dress can be worn by Urotsuki in the Dressing Room, by combining the maid outfit with the Stretch effect.
Kamen Eshi (alternatively named Painter-kun) is a character found through a painting in the Art Gallery.
Kamen is usually found painting a large mural of something that looks like a road or a path. He has blonde hair and wears a multi-colored shirt/smock, a black dog-like mask and jeans. The only paint color that is seen on his brushes is red. He is busily painting and never seems to have enough time to talk to you.
If you try to interact with him while he isn't doing anything, he will simply look at you. If you kill him with the Chainsaw effect, his blood will be splattered over his art, and his mask will fall to the ground. This death is temporary, and he will come back after an in-game week passes. Doing this unlocks Kura Puzzle #28.
Found behind the counter of The Underground Bar, he is visually similar to KyuuKyuu-kun from Yume Nikki. He is interactable and serves you drinks. Drinking too much unlocks an event, and buying at least one drink unlocks wallpaper #103.
These NPCs are all located in Japan Town, but only two of the four are interactable. If you try to interact with the Wheel Girl and News Man, they disappear. You can go inside the Box Shop Keeper's shop by going through the wooden door and using the Glasses effect to find a hidden door near the pile of garbage. The Geisha Shop Keeper allows you to change the style of your menu, and if you sit with her she will begin laughing silently. The Geisha also bears a resemblance to Urotsuki when using the Maiko effect.
The submarine's crew, which can be found from The Docks. Both wear red, military-like uniforms, which is similar to Russian uniforms. The Commando wears a gas mask and does not talk nor respond if you interact with him. The Assistant, when on the submarine, will make the outer shell invisible so you may see if you are on the bottom of the sea or not. Provost-san's gender has yet to be determined (though a majority of the western fanbase proposes Provost-san is female, the Japanese fanbase proposes male), and their confirmed Japanese name is "Kenpei-san", aka "Provost" or "Military Police-san".
An octopus man located in Atlantis' city area. If you use the Fairy effect on him, he will become frightened and reveal his tentacles and large eye. Doing so will also unlock wallpapers #28, #241, and #330, as well as Kura Puzzle #16. By interacting with him from a direction opposite to the one he's facing, he will turn and look at you, and stare at you for a moment before continuing to walk around.
In the same style as the Clown Chasers, these three are located through the Underwater Amusement Park at the end of the area with black and teal tiles on the floor. When you reach them, the one playing the accordion (Anastasia) will take over the music and will play something similar to the popular VOCALOID song Dark Woods Circus. The one that is strutting about with their hair in a side ponytail has been fan-named Nikolai and the final one with pleated hair and balloons has been named Arina. Chainsawing one of them will not make them go insane like the Chasers, as they die as the same way other NPCs do.
A pregnant woman found in Urotsuki's Dream Apartments. The only effect that works on her is the Insect effect that makes the baby enlarge when used. And if you chainsaw her, there will be two screams instead of one, despite the baby being a fetus (as clearly seen).
Encountering her will unlock both wallpaper #23 and wallpaper #309.
Found at the Sewers' entrance to Japan Town, he is a man in a suit with a sign for a head. He does not respond to anything. On the sprite sheet there is a sprite of him facing the other direction, If you interact with him, he will play a honking sound, similar to that of a horn.
Can be found watering plants in the Farm World. When interacted, he tells you via a speech bubble what kind of plant he is caring for at the moment, which is always a picture of either a chili pepper, a slice of pizza, or a Japanese maple leaf.
Red, bloody babies who crawl around the Train Tracks and the Closet Pinwheel Path. Interacting with them causes them to cry and make a face of disgust.
The main event of the Maiden Outlook area. She will react differently depending on what time it is when Urotsuki visits. If it is daytime, sunset, or evening, her head will shoot off her body, landing near the cliffside Urotsuki is standing on. If it is nighttime, however, her head will already have left her body, and will be flying around like a hot air balloon above the town below.
The cute, fluffy inhabitants (whose name translates to "worrying endlessly") of Marijuana Goddess World. They jump when interacted with. They are unique in the fact that they can be set on fire by the Lantern effect.
The tall sea sponge of Atlantis. He blushes when Urotsuki wears the Wolf or Penguin effects around him, which unlocks wallpaper #195, and has a scared expression when the Chainsaw is equipped near him. If attacked with the Chainsaw, his eyes will turn white, and his mouth will leak blood. The Seanut will also react to other effects, such as Gakuran, Boy, Marginal, and Bunny Ears. Like Painter-kun, Seanut will not come back after he is killed.
The presumed owner of the Monkey Mansion. He lounges on his throne. Interestingly, as the rest of the mansion has parallels to Urotsuki's Dream Apartments, the Marquis' room is directly where Urotsuki's room would be.
A brown-haired girl that lives in Ahogeko's House. She and the area itself is a reference to Poniko from the original Yume Nikki.
Found in the easternmost area of the Blue Forest. No matter which effect you use when interacting with him, he will only shake his head. If you sit next to him, he will keep looking at you.
Found in the same area as the Boy on the Bench in the Blue Forest. If he is not on the bench, Hebiko can be found in a small clearing toward the lower right. If you interact with her, she will open her mouth wide, stick her tongue out, and make a loud giggling noise.
Can be found in the area to the far southeast of the Highway. The smaller one has been called Desu-chan due to her large eyes and hyperactivity. She will move away from you if you equip the Chainsaw, and look around if you use the Fairy effect. Her sister, Onee-chan, can be found either sitting on a bench on the pier or standing near Desu-chan. She will turn away from you if you interact with her and if you equip the Chainsaw. Interacting with one of them will unlock wallpaper #10. However, if Desu-chan is inside the TV Room you will not get the wallpaper by interacting with Onee-chan.
Tokage (from Japanese とかげ, "lizard") are the main NPCs found within the Evergreen Woods. There are six of them scattered throughout the forest, each with distinct color schemes. They are likely designed to be references to the Namekuji of the original Yume Nikki's Forest World.
An NPC who dwells in one of the houses of the Sea of Clouds. He normally dons a sad expression. However, using the Wolf or Fairy effects will turn his frown upside-down. Interacting with him unlocks wallpaper #213.
A rather deflated looking snake with two mouths and a cut on his side. He is found lying on the ground in the Highway under the tunnel to the Upper Highway and can only be seen if you use the Glasses effect. He does not react to any other effects. In older versions, he was found lying on the ground at the end of the tunnel and was visible without the use of the Glasses effect. He was also orange colored.
Aojiru (roughly translates to "green juice") is a patient in the Hospital that can be found through a minor event in the middle room of the Hospital's last hallway. They are found wearing a buttoned shirt with bandages around their head, hooked up to an IV with a green substance being fed through it. Aojiru reacts to nothing, and trying to interact with them will automatically make Urotsuki kill them with the Chainsaw, even if you haven't collected it.
Aojiru can also be seen sleeping in their hospital room when Urotsuki equips the Chainsaw and looks out of The Monster's Jaw.
A conical green creature that wanders around near the sculpture room of Graveyard World. It slowly moves about with a dopey expression on its face. Wielding the Chainsaw effect will cause it to freak out, zipping about at high speeds. Chainsawing Hagure-Uzasu has a 1/3 chance of giving you 5000夢.
A girl wearing a pink dress with a white hat that can be found in her house in the Love Lodge. She will run from you if you equip the Chainsaw or Penguin effects, and chase you with the Fairy and Child effects equipped. Once she catches you, she will trap you in a cage and stand just outside of it, seemingly guarding you. If you kill her, you will be changed into a pink menu theme with hearts decorating it, which lasts until you use the Eyeball Bomb effect or wake up. Leaving and reentering her house will allow you to get the menu theme again if it is lost, since she will respawn.
The sole living inhabitant of the Industrial Towers. Interacting with him with the Bunny Ears effect equipped will change the time of day. He also reacts to a number of effects.
A group of severed heads located all across Flesh Paths World. They are used to navigate through the area, the most notable is a severed head of Urotsuki herself.
They may be a reference to Severed Blue Head from Yume Nikki.
A shadow version of Urotsuki using the Bike effect. It can be seen in the upper right section of the Highway rushing at fast speed. Beware of crashing into it.
These four monsters can be encountered in Twisted Thickets. They are, from left to right: Reaper - Werewolf - Noodle Girl - Mole. Both the Werewolf and Noodle Girl will react to some effects.
A fox-masked man in a colorful yukata that can be found in The Invisible Maze and The Baddies Bar (possibly implying that he's an enemy). If you move in the direction he's facing when you're in the black and white part of the maze it will lead you to the Invisible effect. Interestingly enough, he will stare at you if you turn invisible using the Invisible effect. If you try and chainsaw him, he'll leap behind you to avoid your slash. Sometimes, he'll attack you and send you to a closed off area, like a chaser, which could explain why he's in The Baddies Bar.
A sobbing girl in a pink skirt and purple top, found in a tunnel in the Stone Maze. If you interact with her using any existing effect, she will sob into her hands. When interacting with her, there might be a random chance that it will cause her to act as if she were killed, and she will fade away.
The ever-running inhabitants of the Bowling Zone. The Bōringu Otoko are running bowling balls, while the Pingai are the running bowling pins. The Bōringu Otoko in The Lanes portion of Bowling Zone will send Urotsuki back to the start to the lanes if she comes into contact with them. The Bōringu Otoko and Pingai of Bowling Pin World are harmless, and won't even run from the Chainsaw effect.
The star creatures are tiny light-green stars found all over Glowing Stars World that make a bell-like sound when interacted with. They are just minding their own business. Please don't kill them.
Blood striders are blobs made of blood found in Bleeding Mushroom Garden. Baby blood striders walk around aimlessly and occasionally charge at the player trying to attack them. They don't do anything when they touch you and it looks kinda silly when they try. Adult blood striders are found only in the Hellish Bloody Maze of Bleeding Mushroom Garden and approach you slowly and trap you in a closed off section of the maze
The Blob of Good Fortune is a white creature resembling a blobfish with its tongue sticking out and trees circling its head and around its cheeks that is found in Sandstone Brick Maze. It exists to grant good fortune with the Snack Gallery by giving you rare snacks if certain effects are equipped.
Smile-san is found in Flying Fish World. He is in the doorway that is boarded up, so you need to chainsaw the boards to enter the hallway to the room he's in. If you use the Telephone effect on him, his laughs will be played overlapping one another at different speeds. Waking yourself up will cause one final laugh. Using the Rainbow effect will also shut him up.
A pink-haired girl in a spacesuit and helmet. Found in the moonlit balcony in Flying Fish World, on a block in Square-Square World, and her apartment annexed in Flying Fish World. She transports Urotsuki between the two areas. Interacting with her in her apartment while under the Spacesuit effect will teleport Urotsuki to Square-Square World. Likewise, interacting with her in Square-Square World while under the Spacesuit effect will teleport Urotsuki to her apartment.
Found on the way to get the Stretch effect. She is not interactable and you cannot get near her. She simply swings there, bleeding onto the floor.
A lady in a large sun hat that is found in the Forlorn Beach House standing under the red sun. If you try to chainsaw her out of the way, the sun's eye will glow and de-equip the effect.
She can also be found on the way to Urotsuki's Dream Scene, usually seen sitting on a bench in the background facing away from you. Rarely, she can be seen here in her sprite form, and will be much more noticeable. She seems unamused and doesn't react to anything, no matter what effect is used.
She bears a similar appearance to Hiboushi.
A blue t-shirt creature with red eyes that can be found at the end of the Arrow Maze. They grant Kura Puzzle #43 and wallpaper #124 upon interaction.
An NPC encountered in GALAXY Town. Normally, she just wanders around the area, but she can be considered a chaser in a very similar way that Yukata can; if Urotsuki attempts to take her life, she will pull out a chainsaw of her own (in stylish hot pink!) and attack back, banishing Urotsuki to an empty black void. Doing this will unlock Kura Puzzle #49.
She will follow around Urotsuki if the Boy effect is equipped.
A cutesy character found in both Sugar World and Cutlery World. She can't be killed with the Chainsaw, but she can still bleed (perhaps it's jam?). Equipping the Child effect near her will cause one of her eyes to focus on Urotsuki while the other looks at the ground.
These butterflies can be found flying around in Butterfly Garden, there's a lot of them and can be found in a wide variety of colors. There's two variants: Small and giant butterflies.
These little wandering star-shaped creatures inhabit the Spacey Retreat. All of them have different behaviors, which are as follows:
- Yellow starbits will randomly wander the land. They will be attracted to Urotsuki if she equips the Spacesuit effect, pretend they are regular stars if she tries to attack them with the Chainsaw, and be scared of her if she equips the Marginal effect.
- Pink rhombus-shaped starbits float around the entire map. Just let them be; they are too cute to be bothered during their endless journey.
- The red oval-shaped starbit takes you to either Astronomical Gallery or Spacey Retreat (depending on where you are, of course).
- The blue star-shaped Starbit will take you to Constellation World, only if you have either the Spring or Bunny Ears effects.
- The blue starbit with a fisher's hat will be right next to the pond. You can take his fishing rod and try catching something if you want.
Lila is a little kitty. She sits peacefully on a bench in Spacey Retreat and meows at Urotsuki when interacted with. Sitting right next to her on the bench will make her start purring.
Note from the writer: You were a wonderful friend and partner for both of us, may you rest in peace. -JIVV & Brillitos
These colorful seahorses appear in the oceanic section of Coral Shoal. Most of them are just floating around, but some are hanging onto the coral with their tails. Interacting with them will produce some calming sounds, fitting of the world's atmosphere.
Morita is a sea slug residing in Coral Shoal. Interacting with her under normal conditions will cause her to make "slug-ish" sounds as expected. However, if Urotsuki chooses the wrong warp somewhere in the map and gets transported back to the start, she will burst into laughter, making fun of Urotsuki for falling into the trap.
This weird looking fella resides at the end of one of the gloomy corridors of the Gemstone Cave. He really likes to dance and does it non-stop. It is highly recommended to not attack him during his dancing sessions, or you might regret your decision...
"It might not look like it, but in my language, my name makes total sense", he says.

There is also a 1 in 31 chance that the he and his room will glitch up upon entering (which is reset everytime you enter the room) and his sprite turns into a mass of eyeballs.

A pink variant of themselves that gives various (often generous) amounts of 夢 when interacted with can be found in the Shadowy Caves, and their own themed rooms in Sound Saws World, Cipher Fog World, Butter Rain World, and Sherbet Snowfield. In the latter four worlds, another type exists that seemingly bears appendages resembling different parts of the Guardians. These appear to be, in some places on their body, more purple in color as well as having red eyes where this partial covering occurs.

A robot found in a small room inside the Dark Alleys. He holds a monitor with a display that changes depending on what effect you are wearing. On the screen it's possible to see static, an eye that watches Urotsuki, a spinning triangle, a sine wave, and bubbles.
Note that sometimes there is nothing on the monitor (he will either be looking around or just holding it by his side). What's on his monitor also changes the sound he makes.
A small one-eyed creature who sits on a couch in between the Gray Road and Sprout World. He is usually awake but is sometimes seen sleeping. Equipping the Chainsaw effect while he's awake will cause him to look down nervously. He will occasionally blink if you use the Rainbow effect's flash, although it is very hard to see, considering that he blinks when the flash is just fading.
A red and white girl who has a 1/64 chance of appearing in the White Scarlet Exhibition. She bears a similar resemblance to Monoko from Yume Nikki. Equipping either the Cake, Fairy, Penguin or Rainbow effects will show a happy expression on her face, while equipping the Gakuran, Stretch and Grave effect makes her transparent.

A doctor in charge of the surgical ward in Shop Ruins. She may look harmless and may also "heal you" if you equip Plaster Cast, but in reality this wolf in sheep's clothing will try to take your soul away. Who knows, though, maybe there's more than what meets the eye here...
