You imagined it.

Unless you are one of the few people who actually sleep with their eyes open, you can't SEE anything when you're sleeping.  Thus, you can't be woken up by seeing something.

I know it sounds crazy, but I was definitely awake.. I always wake up during the night from the smallest of sounds, I was awake

the same happened to me, I thought it may have been sleep paralysis but I could move my body and I'm 100% sure that I was fully awake

A sound may have waken you ... but you didn't wake up "by SEEING a sinister figure".

And why would you think it was "sleep paralysis" if you could move your body?

Basically ... you woke up and imagined it, as your brain was "switching gears".
