The Noctambules-masques (English: Nocturnal Owl Masks) are the dominant group of superheroes who wear nocturnal-themed magical pajamas and superhero suits reminiscent to Batman.
The Noctambules-masques were inspired by the DC superhero Batman and are themed after various nocturnal elements such as animals, stars etc.
Typically, the Noctambules-masques show full bravery and courage against anything that is nightmarish and/or lethal, though there are some who are shown to be exceptions.
The archetypes for the Noctambules-masques come in many different varieties and themes:
Nahual is the common archetype of Noctambules-masques.
They wear one-piece costumes and a mask that represents animals in a simple appearance. In appearances before "Les Pyjamasques et l'opération zéro," their costume appearance looks far more simpler and rudimentary.
They also have animal bellies at their chest that depends what type of costume they're wearing that represents their favorite animal that they like.
The fairy archetype is an exclusive archetype for certain Noctambules-masques who are female.
They wear dresses and a mask with star patterns, including a pair of boots and gloves.
The deity archetype is another exclusive archetype for Noctambules-masques who are considered deities.
They have costumes that closely resemble those of deities who have an animal route and connections to the night.
The DC archetype is a stereotypical archetype for Noctambules-masques.
They have costumes that are modelled after DC superheroes (specifically Batman) to a most extent, complete with a cape, leotard, belt and boots, as well as owning handheld gadgetry.
So far, Energuman and his original counterpart are the only members of the category.
The Marvel archetype is an alternate archetype to the Nahual archetype of Noctambules-masques.
They have costumes that are modelled after the Marvel characters, common features may include symbols at their chest, accents, streak patterns, as well as having colors that are common with Marvel superheroes.
In addition, some of the members have a exclusive set of pre-installed gadgetry and sensing powers to track down villains. However, unlike the other Noctambules-masques, they lack the power of enhanced courage that's granted from their costumes (as demonstrated in "Catboy's Cloudy Crisis" and "Gekko, Master of the Deep").
The Corrupted archetype are villainized counterparts of Noctambules-masques. They look the same as their normal counterpart, but with black colors. They can only be created when hit by one of the beams of the Opposite Ray.
The Clone archetype are copies of Noctambules-masques. They look identical to their normal counterpart, but they are smaller than their normal counterpart with duller tone of colors and high-pitched voices due to the powers their normal counterpart has.
One of the most known ways of creating them is with the Multiplying Machine.
The Robot archetypes are robotic clones of Noctambules-masques, and a variant to biological "clones."
The Fake archetype are impersonators of Noctambules-masques who disguise themselves as real Noctambules-masques.
They look identical to their real counterpart, except that they lack the Noctambules-masques' powers entirely, and their voice doesn't match their real counterpart.
The Noctambules-masques have the ability to transform from their civilian identity to their superhero identity:
Powers and abilities
The Noctambule-masques' powers depends on what costume they are wearing which represents and relates to an animal or other nature-routes.
It is said that most of the Noctambule-masques' powers are magical while a few of them have powers that are super-powered or use weapons to their advantage.
The Noctambule-masque can enable his/her power by calling out the power's name, the name of the power will usually have a Noctambule-masque's name at the beginning while others will instead have "Super" or the power is either unnamed. It is also noticed that there are a few members whose costumes will glow if a power is enabled.
