Dream Dictionary Dark figure, Dark Man

If you have a dream in which you see a dark figure, or a dark man, these are some of the most potent symbols because of the fact that they are so closely related to humanity but at the same time are not human. This can be perplexing and frightening to the mind but fear not.

If you have a dream about a dark figure this may at first appear sinister and it may very well be sinister but let’s not imagine the worst case scenario first. If you have a dream about a dark figure, try to think if you have met anyone new relatively recently. If you have and then you have this dream of a dark figure then it could be that you are seeing this because you want to get to know this new person but you are not sure how. This new person is probably fairly interesting and you want to know who they are, but they keep their true selves hidden because they are so enigmatic. You can only get to know them by talking to them more and though it may seem intimidating, this dream suggests that you would really like to get to know him so you might as well go for it. Meet the dark figure; talk with him, and then maybe things won’t be so scary, because a dream of a random dark figure means ominous things loom.

If you have a dream of a dark man your first thought might be to panic, after all this can be a pretty scary symbol. Nobody wants to see a dark man because they are scared of what he might represent, evil, death, destruction? This is actually a flaw in the way that humans think; we always assume that something new is going to be threatening if it has to do with darkness at all when this is not really the case. If you have a dream in which you see a dark man it is probably because you have met someone new in the waking world, or you are right about to. When you do meet this man again you want to get to know him better. The darkness in the dream is just a sign that you don’t know him all that well and that you might want to get to know him a little bit better. If this is the case, just put a little more effort in when trying to establish a conversation with him and he will probably open up to you.

Had a dream with a dark figure sitting on my chest choking and stabbing me with something. I don't think this was a dream, because dreams are like the one I had years ago involving me being able to jump and fly anywhere in a city kind of setting. Don't see those dreams anymore.

I just had a dream of the length of 2-3 hours about flying a Helicopter and large piles of food getting stuck on the propeller which happened twice which then turnt DARK: a figure was going around shooting things and taking things then all of a sudden I rush to the kitchen to the knife draw for a weapon to defend myself when the Pure Black Hooded Figure walked past the kitchen (from the outside ) and entered the house 1-2 seconds later he entered I yelled out "YOU! GET BACK OUT!!" as I felt a large pressure over my body I then woke up in a panic thinking I narrowly escaped Death Once Again

I've had a dream today, I was in a basement. I'm feeling kinda lost. It's just dark. And then I spot these 3 dark figures wearing fedora hats. They seem to be going about their own business as if they were busy discussing. so im trying to go up to them, but they disappear. And then I'm still there I see them somewhere else, so i start chasing them. but they don't want to be confronted and disappear again.

Last night i had this dream where there wasnt really any plot or anything, just random stuff like most of the very dew dreams i remember for more than a day, but there was one continuos thing. An 8 or 10 foot figure either behind or infront of us, walking. It never really did anything and i dont know why it was there, it wasnt even really a nightmare though.

I've had several dreams of these entities. In fact, I've been having them for so long, I don't even remember when the first one was.
They are fairly similar; different settings though. They usually last for about 2-3 weeks.
A couple of dreams in particular stand out though...
1. I was with a group of people, old aunts, uncles and grandparents who had passed away and the 'dark beings' appeared. The group formed a circle, holding hands and grabbed mine, holding me tightly. The dark figures tried to pull me away, digging their figures into my forearms. I'm not overly religious, but I started to pray in my dream. Eventually, the dark figures gave up and left (it seemed like an age before they did).
This is going to sound made up and I don't blame anyone for thinking so, so take it how you want; when I woke, I had marks on my arms from where they tried to grab me.
2. This next one is the last dream I had of them. It was very different from all of the others and I haven't had one of those dreams for about a year now...
The figures appeared again, this time there were so many of them! After trying to 'take' me, they suddenly stopped and stepped back. Then I heard laughter - just one of them was laughing - and the group parted to let what seemed like their leader walk through.
It just kept laughing and said it was going to come for me (as if it was saying the others failed, now it is 'his' turn).

I'm not sure what to make of it.

I had a nightmare where I was on the computer playing video games. I looked to the side and saw a dark figure in my room. I ran straight to my door. But the man was right next to the door. I looked at him for one second and then I woke up shaking

I was asleep then I awoke to a Man with no face wearing a Fedora Hat and a Long Trench coat. He put out his hand to touch me. I was 9-months pregnant at the time. I screamed and screamed. I thought he was going to take me. I thought he was evil in some way. I was shaking. My husband woke up and wanted to know what was wrong with me. I told him. Because it was so real, it didn't seem like a dream...but I guess it was. That was many years ago, but I have never forgotten the dream or how I thought he was there to take my baby.

So, this is crazy scary.. I had a dream 2 different times since I was 7 (Im 21 now) that had a dark tall man with a fedora and a trench coat.. i could never see his face.. he always points at me.. the first dream I had when I was 7 I was laying in my bed and all of a sudden a huge rush of fear took over my body.. I looked toward my bedroom door (which was sitting open and you could see straight to my parents room.) and that man with the fedora was standing there.. as still as a statue with his arm fully extended towards me pointing with his finger.. the sight of him scared me out of my sleep and when I woke up he was still there for like 2 secs and then just disappeared.. I layed there in my bed for the rest of the night awake.. I didnt move, I didnt scream, I didnt cry.. I could hardly breath and when the son came up I ran to my parents room.
The second dream I had when I was about 17 years old and it was different.. I was in a really dirty cabin room covered with glass, paper, dust, trash all over the floor. There was no doors or windows and it was like discomfortingly quiet.. there was a woman standing in the middle of the room holding a big book.. she had it open like she was about to start reading from it and when she did the whole room started shaking... all the glass and dirt on the floor started floating.. and then a door appeared in the far corner of this room and when the door opened the shadow of the man in the fodora was standing there pointing at me.. he then lifted his jacket up and a little boy starting walking out of it.. he had dark hair pale skin that looked waterlogged... he was short.. striped shirt, jean shorts.. no shoes.. and his face... he was smiling mischievously he had no color in his eyes just solid white.. and he was dripping wet.. he started walking toward me and the woman that was reading from the book started reading louder and louder and I kept trying to ask her whats going on?? Whats happening?? What is that!? She just kept reading words I didnt understand.. the room then started shaking ten times worse and it felt as if everything was being sucked up into that closet door like a vacuum.. the closer the boy got to me the stronger the winds got.. the lady fell to her knees and i turned to look at her and when I looked back at the boy he was right in front of me.. he grabbed me and I pushed him off.. then my body got lifted off the floor and I felt I was being pulled to the closet.. I grabbed the women by her arms as I was being sucked away and begged her please help me, save me, dont let me go please!!! The boy then grabbed my foot and I kept kicking to get him off but then he bit my foot and thats when I woke up.. the boy was literally standing right next to my bed and the man in the fedora was standing in the doorway pointing just like he did before.. I quickly turned on my lamp and they vanished..... it all felt so real... I was so terrified...

I have been having these dreams recently so, theirs this very tall man about 8ft maybe even 9ft. He's very tall and he's just all black head to toe. But, he has a large smile with sharp teeth it is very unnatural. So this dream went like this, I was in a large space it looked like it would never end. I was just sitting on the ground, staring in the distance blankly. It was cold and wet in the dream to, while I was sitting I kept hearing noises at first I couldn't make the whispers out so I ignored it. Then, the whispers got closer and closer. I stood up looking for who or what was making those noises. I walked around that pitch black room looking. I walked and walked hearing each step I took with whispers still creeping up on me. I wasn't scared but , I was just confused and cold. "Tap"'"Tap" "Tap" the steps sounded. "Kyousulf" the whispers said. I just kept walking towards the whispers the closer and closer I got the colder and wetter it was. Finally, the whispers sounded like actual words "Kill yourself, die, die" the whispers said. My face went blank as it once was before. The whispers started giggling in a deep voice. I closed my eyes hoping it would all go away the whispers kept laughing and giggling "Die! DIE!" they yelled. I finally got the courage to open my eyes, and someone no something was in front of me. I slowly looked up to see its face. Its face, its face was so unhuman. It's smile on its face it looked like a crescent, the thing also had a top hat with a red ribbon, it was wearing a suit with a red tie to match the red ribbon. It had hands with sharp nails that could pierce the skin. It had no eyes but it felt like it was staring directly at me. It said something " Do you wanna kill you're self"? I said "No" and started to tear up. "Then I'll do it" the black figured replied. My eyes open wide and turned white I couldn't see anything. Just white, then a flash came out of nowhere. Then I saw something it was me, I was dead a rope tied around my kneck and I was hanging from a black tree. Another flash, I had a knife go through my chest I fell to to the ground coughing up blood. Another flash, a gun to my head "BANG" everything went slow I fell to the ground. A flash a saw rushing towards me slicing my head. A flash, a pair of scissors cutting my eye. A flash a knife slitting my wrist and the blood slowly bled out. Another flash, my head was in a gulliotine my head fell into the basket. Another flash, everything went pitch black again. Everything e I died I saw the black figure in the background. Smiling, another flash everything was back to normal I was at my house with my parents eating dinnner but, something was different the black figure he was behind me my family didn't see him but I did. Everywhere I went he went with me, my friends house, school, to the park, a restaurant, my room, my backyard, anywhere i went he was always their. He always whispered "Kill you're self".
Dream 2: Was similar he kept following me and whispering "Kill you're self" I've been having these dreams for the past 2 weeks. Idk what the hell id going on. Could it be that I'm going through a mild depression idk and I'm kinda scared. Sometimes I even wake up with tears on my face and I'm out of breath.

I'm 13 btw and sorry for my grammar mistakes.
Have a nice day and I hope the universe treats you right.

I dreamt a shadowy tall man at the end of my bed - I reached for my sword on my bedhead - then a knock on my bedside chest of drawers woke me up - no-one was there. I prayed to who I believe in Baron Samedi to not let any negative spirits enter my house & prayed for Ogun to clear & protect my property - all good after that  :) slept soundly. (I agree pray to whatever Higher spiritual Power you believe in for protection.

I was sleeping next to my soon-to-be ex gf at the time in our room at her mother's house with the door closed. There is this one single 'street light' right outside the window so u have little bit of light casting in. (This happened on Navajo reservation land and the house was by itself in it's own little area) I was sleeping on my back and I'm quite sure that I wasn't actually dreaming at first, but all of a sudden it felt like someone (a man) jumped on top of me with his knees on my elbows and holding my wrists down at the same time and I couldn't breathe. As I lay there scared and struggling to get up, I couldn't. It was pure black and a deep dark pitch shadow of a man and I could feel it on top of me holding me down. He wasn't talking or anything like that, but he seemed to be saying: "I got you!" To scare me... and I WAS scared! He disappeared in a matter of seconds and I finally 'woke up' as if I was having a seizure. My gf woke up at the same time and just laughed like it was funny. (Bitch) Mind you, the family was traditional and in the many weeks before took part in 'healing' ceremonies with a certain uncle relative of theirs who performed them. I was there for support as it is a part of my heritage and traditional native background, so I didn't think much of it. Anyway, he lived just over the hill and knew me and his neice weren't doing too good relationship-wise, so I believe it was him that came in disturbing my precious slumber. Wtchcraft is truly prominent and very real in this world and us natives believe this all too well. Anyway... you don't mess with witches unless u know what ur up against and have benevolent support of equal power to fight fire with fire. I left soon after and never went back... eventually moving off of the rez. I always knew it was him, but if u expose a witch or end up killing one somehow... then u got a whole world of shit on a different plane with spiritual demonic entities. Normally we use our ceremonies for good... but, this guy was evil and the family overall: ignorant, self-righteous and plain stupid. Needless to say: I don't participate anymore. Maybe one of these I'll go back and...

I had a dream where I saw my deceased father in a raft of sorts in what looked like to be a man made river with concrete and brick walls. We was coming out of a tunnel and a black figure was sitting behind him with his feet propped up like he was relaxing. The figure then jumped up as if it was startled that I was there and it faced me. Completely black. No shadow. Just a black figure. I opened my eyes immediately. I have only bad feelings about this dream.

Hi was wondering if anyone could help at all I woke up last night and as usual my curtains were open so could see my room with the night sky and at the end of my bed was a really tall dark figure staring down at the floor. I checked the time it as 2.07 looked back it was still there, led there for a couple of minutes and had a horrible feeling rushing over me after a couple of minutes it still being there I got up turned the light on and it had gone.
Could anyone please tell me what this was? I have just read up on the shadow man and the hat man. I can tell you the figure at the end of my bed did not have a hat. Does this help matters?
