Deathless (Su)

Instead of being destroyed when reduced to 0 hit points (as normal undead), a nightmare mount returns to unlife 1 hour later at 1 hit point, allowing its fast healing thereafter to resume healing it. A nightmare mount is permanently destroyed if it is destroyed by positive energy, if it is reduced to 0 hit points in the area of a bless or hallow spell, or if its remains are sprinkled with a vial of holy water.

Smoke (Su)

In battle, a nightmare mount exhales smoke that chokes and blinds foes, filling a 15-foot cone each round as a free action. Anyone in the cone must succeed on a DC 16 Fortitude save or become sickened until 1d6 minutes after leaving the area. This smoke acts as obscuring mist for the purposes of concealment. The smoke persists for 1 round. The save DC is Constitution-based.
