Frightful Dream (Japanese: こわいゆめ Scary Dream) is an assist skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes. Frightful Dream could be considered a stronger variation of the Dance and Sing skills, in that it not only refreshes its target, but also drops all of the stats of all enemies in cardinal directions from the user and target through their following actions in addition to slowing down those enemies' special skill cooldown counts while that effect is in place. Like Dance and Sing, it cannot target another user of nor be the target of another user of any performance skill such as Gray Waves, Gentle Dream, and so on.
