The Pumpkin Prince is a supporting character in the W.I.T.C.H. Halloween Special Issue.
Leader of the Terrifying Eternal Dance Troupe
When the girls encounter the nightmares, they were alarmed by the Heart of Kandrakar and so, the girls attacked the nightmares thinking that the monsters were a threat. The Pumpkin Prince steps in and tells the girls that the nightmares weren't doing anything wrong. He explains that the nightmares were supposed to look ugly because it's their role to frighten during Halloween.
He also explains that people should be able to see them during the occasion, but it hasn't happened because something has happened to the core of the nightmares, and because the Guardians were special, they were the only humans who wee able to see these creatures. He later explained that Halloween is in danger because someone who hates Halloween stole the Pumpkin Heart.
Together with the girls he confronted the culprit and was badly injured when the Fairy stabbed the Pumpkin Heart. After the Fairy was defeated he and the rest of the nightmares returned to the Laughing Tree.
The Nightmares and their Ruler
Nightmares are creatures of the night that scare people to achieve the balance between beauty and ugliness. These creatures came from a world inside the Laughing Tree. They call themselves the Terrifying Eternal Dance Troupe.
It is implied that Pumpkin Prince was their ruler, because of his name, and because the Laughing Tree bears the symbol of the Pumpkin. He also is seen predominantly interacting with the Guardians unlike the rest of his kind. Other notable nightmares were Baby Toad, the Two-Headed Ogre and the Wolfman.
