Character Profiles:

Red Riding Hood

The first Blood Maiden discovered by Dawn.
As its first member, she acts like an older sister, leading her unit while she brazenly traverses through the Jail.

Her bold approach towards things is somewhat held at bay by Otsuu and Little Mermaid, but she looks at them as being too worrisome. Whatever the case, she is admired by the other Blood Maidens as someone who they could rely on.

That is, until that certain day...


A calm, honest girl that was held in prison with Jack.
She was rescued by Otsuu, but on their way back to the Liberated District, she enters Blood Skelter.

The bond she has with Jack is sacred to her, and even after Jack changed into a Nightmare, her affection towards him hasn't changed.


A being of unknown origin who is said to be the "King of Nightmares." Snark met Professor Tohjima long ago, but has not been seen since.

About Mary Skelter: Nightmares

Originally released for the PlayStation®Vita in September 2017, in Mary Skelter: Nightmares, powerful Nightmares actively stalk the player as you run through the dungeon—fight back with the dungeons' gimmicks or the Blood Maidens' abilities! Using a turn-based battle system, class changes, a blood-powered transformation system, and more, you and your party must solve the dungeons' mysteries and satisfy the prison's desires. In Mary Skelter 2, players can play the full revamp of Mary Skelter: Nightmares!

About Mary Skelter 2

Mary Skelter 2 evolves the core elements in Mary Skelter: Nightmares to bring to you a world teeming with twists and turns, topped with a new battle feature where the previous protagonist, Jack, is now a Nightmare. Players can use his Nightmare powers to defeat enemies, but at a maddening cost. Set in an alternate reality that includes familiar characters from the first installment, players must relive the torturous dungeon experiences and find ways to feed an almost insatiable prison. Will you be able to escape this prison and find sanctuary or will you fall into the clutches of madness?

Key Features

Don't Go Chasing Nightmares – When a white haze appears, a Nightmare is near! When spotted by a Nightmare, players enter “Chase Mode,” where the Nightmare will chase you through the Jail in real-time. Escape the Nightmare's clutches without the help of a mini-map by fleeing the white haze. When caught by a Nightmare's gaze, players enter battle where they will have to temporarily stun the Nightmare by attacking its weak points. Destroy the Jail's core and complete the dungeon by defeating the Nightmare!

Jack is a Dull Boy – Jack, the protagonist from Mary Skelter: Nightmares, has now turned into Nightmare Jack. He can still help you along the way, but be wary of his heart rate meter! Once his heart rate reaches a certain limit, he will turn into Ripper Jack, causing him to go berserk. When in Ripper Jack mode, Otsuu also risks going into Blood Skelter mode, which will cause her to go berserk too! With first game, Mary Skelter: Nightmares included, you can play through an alternate world where Jack is the main protagonist.

Build Your Own Blood Maiden – When leveling Blood Maidens, players can use CP points to level up skills and learn new ones.

Mix-and-match skills based on your playing style!
