In Greek mythology, Phantasos (English translation: "apparition") was the son of Hypnos and one of the Oneiroi. He appeared in dreams in the form of inanimate objects.


He is the son of Hypnos, the God of sleep. His mother is Pasithea, the goddess of hallucination. Phantasos is nephew to Thanatos, the God of death (Hypnos brother), his grandmother is Nyx, Goddess of the night and his grandfather is Erebus, the god of darkness.


He lives in Morpheus' dream world with his two brothers, Morpheus and Phobetor, to assist with the dreams of humans, also Phantasos is left in charge of Morpheus' dream world by his brother Morpheus when he's gone to the mortal world. Morpheus takes the likely dreams and Phobetor takes the nightmares.
