Nightmares do battle by biting with their viperish fangs and kicking with their powerful legs. A nightmare can fight while mounted, but the rider cannot also fight unless he or she succeeds at a Ride check.

Flaming Hooves (Su): A blow from a nightmare's hooves sets combustible materials alight.

Smoke (Su): During the excitement of battle, a nightmare often snorts and neighs with rage. This fills a 15-foot cone with a hot, sulfurous smoke that chokes and blinds opponents. Anyone in the cone must succeed at a Fortitude save (DC 16) or suffer a -2 morale penalty to all attack and damage rolls until 1d6 minutes after they leave the cone. The nightmare gains one-half concealment against creatures 5 feet away and total concealment against creatures 10 feet away. The smoke does not obscure the nightmare's vision at all. The nightmare can suppress the smoke as a free action.

Astral Projection and Etherealness (Su): These function just like the spells of the same names as cast by a 20th-level sorcerer.

Carrying Capacity: A light load for a nightmare is up to 300 pounds; a medium load, 301-600 pounds; and a heavy load, 601-900 pounds.
