Nightmare Raptor basically resembles a standard Velociraptor, albeit sporting several physical oddities. His head more closely resembles the Indominus Rex, and Nightmare Raptor has feathers in several places, including on his head, back, and the tip of his tail. Nightmare Raptor has odd skin protrusions on his snout and the bottom of his neck, the former resembling a saw, though it does not appear to actually function. Nightmare Raptor's main body is a dark grey color with a white underbelly, whilst various patches on his body are red or blue in color.
Nightmare Raptor's origins remain a mystery, however one that may be uncovered in time....

Exhausted by the previous day, Indominus Rex 2016 was trying to rest. However, his sleep was haunted by a Raptor he had never seen before, whom he dubbed Nightmare Raptor. The Council of Creators decided to enter Indominus' mind to hunt the Raptor down.
Once inside his mind, he scattered his Mental Guardians, allowing Nightmare Raptor to easily take them out one by one, growing in power at each kill and causing immense pain to Indominus.
