Nomes are scared, skittish creatures that inhabit The Maw. While skeptical by nature, you can attempt to befriend them by giving them a hug. There are 13 Nomes in Little Nightmares. Here’s where to find each one.
Table Of Contents
The Prison is the first area of the Maw. You can find three Nomes here.
The first Nome is in the room that has a refrigerator with handprints on the front of it. Grab and pull open the fridge and a Nome will get scared and run off to the right.
Follow the Nome by crawling through the hole in the wall to the right. The Nome will be in this room.
In the room with a mountain of cages on the back wall, climb to the top of the cages, but don’t climb onto the platform. Instead, make your way to the right of the pile and go down once you hit the wall. A Nome will be in that cage. Climb through the cage and enter the next room, where you’ll find the Nome.
After you’ve climbed the filing cabinets for the second time, go through the door to the left and go to the left side of the room. Open the cage and the Nome will run away. Head back to the previous room and you’ll find the scared Nome. Give it a hug.
The Lair is the second area of the Maw. You can find three Nomes here.
As soon as you begin your journey in The Lair, ascend the long flight of stairs and go through the first door. You’ll see a Nome run away.
When you head back out, go up the stairs to the left and you’ll see the Nome to the left of the platform.
There’s a small area with a Lantern and a suitcase that you’ll find as you crawl through the ducts. Instead of climbing the suitcase and continuing on through the ducts, climb the ladder instead. You’ll see a Nome near the top. Climb through and give it a hug.
The sixth Nome, and the final Nome in The Lair, can be found in the room with a few towers of books. There’s a desk to the right of this room. Crawl under it and a Nome will run out and hide next to the stack of books to the mid-left of the room. Give the poor thing a hug.
The Kitchen is the third area of the Maw. You can find three Nomes here.
The seventh Nome can be found to the left of the two toilets in the bathroom.
After leaving the bathroom and riding the elevator back down, go left and enter the pantry. You’ll notice a brown jar hopping up and down. Pick it up and smash it to reveal a Nome, but hide under the shelf as soon as you do because the Chef will likely hear it and come running in.
Once the chef leaves the pantry, it’s safe to give the Nome a hug.
The final Nome in The Kitchen area can be found under the table in the room with the large meat grinder.
The Guest Area
The Guest Area is the fourth area of the Maw. You can find four Nomes here.
As soon as you begin The Guest Area, turn to the left and go through the crack in the wall, which leads to a secret area. The first Nome of this area will be in this room.
In the room with the long table with several guests eating at it, you’ll find a stool next to the wall to the right. Push the stool out of the way to reveal an opening. Climb through and you’ll find a Nome.
When you ride up the elevator and see a Lantern in the foreground of the hallway, squeeze through the door to the left. There’s a guest asleep in this room, so quietly hug the Nome that’s also in here.
The final Nome isn’t missable, as it’s a part of the storyline. When Six is experiencing hunger pains, the Nome will be in a room holding a sausage. Watch the scene that takes place, and the final Nome will automatically be counted as collected.
