Queen Bella, (クイーンベラ Kuīnbera) also known as Queen Bella the Spider, is a second-level Nightmaren and boss in NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. She is a large spider queen.

Character Information

Physical Appearance

Queen Bella resembles a large spider (specifically a Jumping Spider) dressed in a Victorian garb that fits around her abdomen. She has four eyes, pointed fangs, earrings, and a golden crown with gemstones on it. She has eight spindly spiked legs to crawl around, and (like all spiders) spins silk.

Personality

Queen Bella is a silent and sneaky second level Nightmaren who prefers to be more defensive than offensive. She messes with Helen's memories in Memory Forest hidden in the shadows and rarely comes out. According to the NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams Bradygames Guide, Queen Bella is also one of the deadliest of all the Second-level Nightmarens.[1]

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams

Queen Bella is Memory Forest's boss and a Helen Nightmaren, who'll first attack after NiGHTS destroying all of the NiGHTS captures in the level. She later returns to a second and final fight after beating all of the Memory Forest's missions. Her boss theme is called "Queen Bella's Ball".

Battle

Queen Bella stands on a platform above a lava pool and she will drop silk balls at NiGHTS. If her silk balls fall into the lava, they will make a lava column appear, which will damage NiGHTS if they touch it.

To defeat Queen Bella, NiGHTS must grab the balls of silk and throw them at the platforms. This will destroy the platforms and make Queen Bella fall into the lava pool. Queen Bella may try to protect herself by going to safer places with more platforms to stand.

In the first battle, there are two layers of platforms surrounding the pit. But in the second battle, there are four layers of platforms.

It is possible to defeat Queen Bella in a matter of seconds with one well-aimed silk ball.[2]

After the second battle, Queen Bella isn't seen again.

Arena

Queen Bella's battle field is in the middle of a distorted town with platforms that she walks around on. Below her there is a pool of lava, presumably a smelting pit.

Descriptions and Profiles

English Bio (Journey of Dreams)

"This regal arachnid is your final foe in Memory Forest, and her stage is one of the deadliest of all the Second-level Nightmarens'. The silk balls she spins drop down into the pool of lava below, causing a molten geyser to spray into the air – not quite high enough to hit Queen Bella, but the perfect height to toast you. Unfortunately for her, you can use Queen Bella's silk balls against her by Touch-dashing them into the panels of her stage, destroying them and sending her plunging into the lava."[1]
