In all destruction, there is a new beginning. Beautiful. You know, the unfinished symphony, right? The server will be at peace now.
~ Dream to Tommy after destroying L'Manburg.
If I can control the things that people are attached to, then I can control the server again! Because this isn't TOMMY SMP, or TUBBO SMP, THIS IS DREAM SMP, right?! So I can control the server if I have everything that everybody cares about! That everybody's EVER cared about! I can control everything, alright? I can turn the server back to what it USED to be!
~ Dream revealing his collection of items belonging to people on the server to Tommy and Tubbo to use as blackmail.

Dream is the titular main antagonist of the Minecraft web series Dream SMP.

He appears as one of the two main antagonists (alongside Jschlatt) of Season 1, the main antagonist of Season 2 and 4, and one of the two overarching antagonists (alongside The Egg) of Season 3.

He is the founder of the Dream SMP and the owner of the faction of the same name. Dream brands himself a peaceful individual, when in reality he is a heartless and extremely arrogant and manipulative tyrant who has committed numerous acts against many people in the SMP and gone to extreme measures to ensure his rule over the server.

After the events of the rebellion against Manburg and TommyInnit's numerous antics, Dream became more and more unhinged and obsessive and has gone to even more torturous and downright manipulative tactics to try and keep Tommy from further damaging his reputation as a leader and his control over the server. He is TommyInnit, Quackity and Awesamdude's archenemy.

He is portrayed by the YouTuber of the same name and should not be confused with him.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • While he did start of with many redeeming qualities, from being a well-intentioned extremist to genuinely caring about others, he ditches them all over time.
  • Although he did many heroic acts, all of them are for his own gain.
  • He has countless comedic moments, but he is still taken seriously.
  • Stole TommyInnit's two music discs. Although it would be originally seen as something petty, it in reality started one of the longest arcs in the whole series and is when the lore truly started.
  • He declared war on L'Manburg simply because he wouldn't allow someone to be independent from his faction.
  • Burned down Tubbo's house as part of declaring war.
  • Alongside Sapnap and GeorgeNotFound, he would grief and bomb L'Manberg during the war.
  • He blew up the Cuck Shed.
  • Bribed Eret to betray L'Manberg and join his side in exchange for Eret becoming the king of the Dream SMP (the faction, not the server). This would result in Wilbur Soot, Tommy, Tubbo and Fundy all losing the first of their three canon lives.
  • Alongide Eret, he blew up all of L'Manberg after not seeing white flags or a sign of surrender from the L'Manbergians after they defied his order to do so.
  • Took Tommy's second life in a duel.
  • Tried to bribe Jack Manifold (known by then as Thunder) into joining his side.
  • He would give Jschlatt a bow and help in hunting down the POG2020 candidates (Wilbur and Tommy) during the L'Manberg Presidential Election.
  • He burned down the Eiffel Tower alongside Tommy to frame BadBoyHalo.
  • He helped in Wilbur's spiral into villainy by giving him the TNT he needed to destroy Manberg.
  • He betrayed Pogtopia after Schlatt gave him a book that could resurrect the dead.
  • After he heard that Eret would try to ally with Pogtopia, he dethroned him and crowned George as the king.
  • He griefed several builds across the server, leaving signs framing Tommy, and stayed behind to tell those affected that they should all confront him about it together.
  • He started building a large obsidian wall across all of L'Manberg to isolate it from the rest of the server.
  • He orchestrated Tommy's exile from L'Manberg, forcing their hand over a crime that had never been punished that way before.
  • He violated several boundaries escorting Tommy to his exile site, including:
    • Blowing up Tommy's summer home in front of him (a worse crime than the one Tommy had been exiled for).
    • Telling Tommy that he's exiled from everywhere on the server that has been touched, against the terms that'd been agreed upon in court, isolating Tommy from getting help from anyone else.
    • Taking Tommy to a specific location of his choosing and telling him that he'd have to stay there or else he'd be killed, which is kidnapping (or perhaps unlawful imprisonment) rather than the agreed-upon exile.
    • Forbidding people from following him and Tommy to the exile site in an attempt to stop them from being able to find Tommy.
  • Throughout Tommy's exile, Dream would constantly manipulate, abuse and gaslight him into believing Dream is his only friend simply because he found the boy fun. Some of the ways he would do this include:
    • Blowing up all the items Tommy had on a regular basis.
    • Beating Tommy on a regular basis, typically if he didn't offer his things to be burned quick enough though seemingly also just for fun.
    • Creating a series of rules, often unspoken simply for being able to punish Tommy for failing to comply with them, when that had never been discussed in the terms of Tommy's exile. Many of these rules impeding Tommy's ability to survive on his own (such as not being allowed to grow his own food).
    • After finding Tommy contemplating killing himself over the circumstances and conditions he'd created, he simply pulled him from the ledge and told him it wasn't his time to die yet. He then went right back to ribbing him as if nothing had happened.
    • He made several attempt to isolate Tommy from other people such as:
      • Intercepting letters written to him and destroying them.
      • Lying to other people by telling them that Tommy didn't want visitors and lying to Tommy by telling him that no one wanted to come.
      • Stealing gifts given to him by other people.
      • Encouraging other people to mock him and engage in his abuse (such as having someone else burn Tommy's items and beating him in front of them when he refused).
    • Dream allowed Tommy to set up a beach party specifically as a tool to make him think that he was Tommy's only friend. This was accomplished by a few things:
      • He tricked Ghostbur into giving him the invitations so he could destroy them (sending Ghostbur into the snow, presumably to try to kill him knowing he melts in water), leaving Tommy to think that no one else wanted to show up.
      • He specifically told Tommy that Tubbo (his best friend) had been handed his invitation in person.
      • Upon further questioning he lied about the circumstances of Tubbo losing his compass (one in matching set giving to Tommy and Tubbo by Ghostbur, with Tubbo's pointing to Tommy and Tommy's pointing to Tubbo so they'd have a piece of each other even if they couldn't see each other), telling Tommy that he'd intentionally burned his when it'd really been destroyed in an accident.
      • After explicitly confirming that Tommy believed that no one else wanted or cared for him, he had a fun night with Tommy (being particularly generous for his standards by giving him things to play with) to try to cement himself as the only person who cared about him.
    • Tried to kill Juan Mendez and accidentally killed Mexican Dream once he took the bullet. He would then shoot again and actually kill Juan, which would result in Mexican Dream attacking him. Dream would then kill Mexican Dream for the second time, which was also his third death, resulting in him dying forever. Dream then attempted to gaslight Tommy into believe that Mexican Dream had died of an overdose.
    • Blew up all of Logstedshire (the buildings, his items, his tools, all of his food, and his only consistent food source in the form of his pet mooshroom) after finding items Tommy had hidden underground, claiming it'd been a betrayal of his trust when the "rule" hadn't been established until that moment, and telling Tommy that he had to start over. He then banned travel through the nether and any visitors at all, effectively trying to trap Tommy with nowhere to go, no one to rely on, and no way to take care of himself.
    • In response to the previous point Tommy very nearly committed suicide, towering as high as he could go and intending to jump (choosing instead to break his fall in water and escape from Dream). This happened after he'd expressed that he'd been suicidal in the previous interaction, only to have Dream tell him that he'd never go through with it.
    • Noticeably, all the abuse would take a heavy toll on Tommy: His appearance became worse, he would get depression and suicidal thoughts, he wouldn't care about being attacked, he would be constantly starving, rarely slept, he developed hallucinations (often seeing images of Tubbo that weren't real), he woke up drowning in the ocean without explanation on (presumably sleepwalking, though perhaps not), he swung between being overly apologetic and submissive to explosive anger (though the later was more often expressed at other people or expressed in private), overall his personality had a notable and palpable change.
    • It would also cause L'Manberg to think Tommy actually killed himself after Tubbo stumbled upon Tommy's tower.
    • He hunted Tommy down, stalking the house that he'd taken refuge in several times and confronting him at the nether portal (though ultimately letting him go because of his alliance with Technoblade).
    • He blew up the Community House and framed Tommy for it in a ploy to get his hands on Tommy's other disc, which was in Tubbo's possession. He would then reveal that the only reason why he hadn't already destroyed L'manberg was because he needed to trick Tubbo into handing it over and that there was nothing stopping him from doing so anymore.
    • Even after all the exile ended, Tommy was still traumatized and as of now, still hasn't recovered.
    • The worst thing of all is that Tommy is only a teenager during all this (having been confirmed to be 16 years old in canon during the trial).
  • Dream, with the help of Technoblade and Philza, would then destroy L'Manberg for the final time in the Doomsday War, with countless TNT and Withers destroying the country to the point of no return, resulting in a giant crater in the country's place and the loss of Jack Manifold's final life (who came back from the dead but was extremely traumatized by his visit to hell). When Tommy questioned why he punished all of L'manberg rather than just burning his discs Dream said that this was more fun.
  • He destroyed Tommy's house and left a note telling him to bring himself and Tubbo to a specific location at a specific date alone to have a final confrontation over the discs.
    • We learn his ultimate plan for Tommy's fate. He framed Tommy for griefs trying to get him exiled within days of his brother (the person who would've stood up to him the most) having died, and then within a day of Tommy's exile he commissioned the construction of an inescapable prison of his own design called Pandora's Vault (with many aspects being taken from Tommy's own trauma and triggers), which was built throughout Tommy's exile and in the aftermath of L'Manberg's destruction. He sent Tommy the invitation to meet with him when the Vault was finished, intending to keep Tommy there under his control forever.
      • Quite literally forever, with the use of his book that can revive the dead. Having told Tommy himself that he was too fun for Dream to ever let their game to end.
    • He planned to capture the most valued thing of the strongest or most influential people on the server to keep them under his control, which include Carl and the Axe of Peace from Technoblade, friend from Ghostbur, Fren from Awesamdude, and Skeppy from BadBoyHalo. Keeping Tommy for himself as his own most valued item.
      • What makes this worse is the fact that Skeppy was an actual, sentient, humanoid person.
    • He nearly killed Tubbo in front of Tommy, in his own words because he didn't have anymore use for Tubbo but it's quite notable that Tubbo was Tommy's closest friend (someone who'd both threaten Dream's own control of Tommy and someone that he could hold over Tommy's head with the use of the revival book).
  • After being imprisoned inside Pandora's Vault, Dream started faking remorse to further manipulate Tommy, although he didn't fall for it.
  • During his imprisonment, he would psychologically torment Awesamdude in order to strain his dedication to running the prison, eventually leading to his involvement with both Tommy and Ghostbur's deaths.
  • During what was supposed to be Tommy's final visit to him, Dream had Ranboo detonate TNT on the prison's roof, causing Tommy to be trapped in the cell with him because of Sam's emergency protocols.
    • During this visit, Dream claims that exile was fun, and that he wants the two to go back to it, ignoring Tommy's anger and discomfort at being reminded of his abuse.
    • Though we see that Tommy has resisted Dream's influence by the end of the week, we don't find out what happened while the camera was pointed away. It's all but guaranteed that many attempts to manipulate and harm Tommy happened off screen.
    • With the threat of Tommy being freed soon, Tommy not successfully reconditioned, and Tommy doubting the validity of the revival book Dream took drastic measures and beat him to death.
      • We learn from Sam that Dream laughed maniacally after Tommy's death.
        • We also learn that Tommy was the only thing Dream ever talked about when no one was visiting.
    • Dream waited three days to revive Tommy, specifically so that he could give Tommy time to sit in the afterlife and tell him what it was like. He confirmed both that he killed Tommy to make a point about the revival book and that he hadn't known for sure that it would work before he did it. He expressed both an interest in experimenting on Tommy specifically and in living with Tommy for the rest of time as immortals.
    • After realizing the power that he had he declared himself a god, intending to use the book to control everyone on the server.
    • Tommy begged Dream not to ever revive Wilbur, having grown afraid of him during his time in Limbo, going as far to offer to stay with Dream in exile in exchange. Naturally Dream refused, presumably because he assumed that he could take Tommy anyways when he eventually rose to power.
  • He would go on to eventually complete Wilbur's resurrection under the (likely false) assumption that Wilbur would eventually help him escape. To do this he ended up killing Ghostbur right in front of Tommy's eyes, a separate entity from Wilbur that Tommy loved as his own person.
  • While his cruel punishment during his imprisonment (being repeatedly tortured in his prison cell by Quackity) could potentially be used for a cheap redemption arc, he both brought all his misery upon himself and hasn't expressed any sign of change or remorse for what he's done, and in fact he's been called out repeatedly for having been and still being a terrible person. Indeed, after escaping prison, he shows no signs of growth and reverts back to his manipulative personality.
    • Even during his torture, he has a noticeable fixation on Tommy - asking Quackity if people thought him killing Tommy was "cool", and asking Technoblade about Tommy more than anyone else (even while he was trying to fish for personal information from Technoblade in an attempt to find ways to control him.
  • While he does object to Quackity's plan to trap Technoblade in Pandora's Vault, this can be interpreted less as Dream being concerned for Techno's safety, and more as Dream viewing him as a way out of prison, and fearing that him being imprisoned will foil this escape plan.
  • While we don't currently understand Dream's connection to Ranboo's enderwalk state, we know that there is one as he features very heavily in Ranboo's hallucinations, we know that Ranboo helped Dream on several occasions and visited Dream in prison on a regular basis (before being banned) in his enderwalk state, Dream sent a message to Ranboo through someone else that set off his enderwalk state, and it's implied but not confirmed that enderwalk Ranboo could've been the one to bomb the prison (trapping Tommy inside) at Dream's instructions (or perhaps his control). Just how involved Dream is, what he's done, and what his level of control over Ranboo is, are unknown.
  • When Ranboo is held hostage by Sam to stop Dream and his allies from escaping Pandora's Vault, he outright states that he doesn't care about him and is more interested in escaping the prison. His unwillingness to surrender himself ultimatley leads to Sam permanently killing Ranboo.
  • After escaping Pandora's Vault, he went to the ruins of Logstedshire to confront Tommy, and gleefully tormented him by attempting to re-enact how he used to force Tommy into dropping his items into a hole to start over and sadistically toying with and attempting to kill him in a sing-songy voice. All the while, he confessed that he planned to make Tommy's life a living hell by continuously killing and resurrecting him just so he could torture him for all eternity.
  • He attempted to bargained with and eventually tried to kill his former friend, Sapnap, over his old set of armour, as well as threatening to destroy Kinoko Kingdom if he did not comply.
  • He repeatedly killed and revived Vikkstar and LazarBeam to test the Revive Book's necromancy, ending with their permanent deaths.

Trivia

  • The streamer (of the same name) portraying Dream intentionally stopped streaming his perspective in the story when he realized he intended to play an unsympathetic villain, a similar tactic utilized by Schlatt to create distance between the character and the audience.
