Needle Bats (nicknamed that because they resembled needles with bat wings) in Dreamtime were enemies that Ratchet fought in his dream. These enemies could appear in mirrors, behind world's edges, or out of nowhere. If a mirror was destroyed before the winged entity approached, more of them would appear through each shattered section of the mirror. The best weapons to use against these were the Concussion Gun, Suck Cannon, and Scorcher.
