If the person executes the code "Nightmare" in the Amiga Disk Operating System (DOS), it runs in the background every 5 minutes. The screen will then cut to an image of a skull from the right side, his mouth open, teeth covered in blood, and a bullet hole in his back from which blood was leaking. accompanied by a resonant screech and lasts four fifths of a second.
