Because Nicholas is made out of nickel's he has a steely type of fur. He is not made entirely out of nickel's but just look's like it. Nicholas has a grey muzzle inflicting because of the color of nickels and, has beety little eye's that are black. Nicholas's nose is purple unlike most of the dog's noses are black in the game. Nicholas has little freckles around his cheek's almost like Gabi's. Nicholas's mouth is a regular looking mouth almost like Daisy's and Mento. Nicholas has a pulse shirt just like Ribbot's. On the back of Nicholas in the NTSC version it say's MINT which could mean that Nicholas came from  the MINT a U.S. comapny that makes coin's and money ect. In the NTSC-J version it say's ニッケル on the back of Nicholas. ニッケル mean's Nickel which could of been a hint to the NTSC version. In the PAL version this was removed.


Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.

He has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will also enjoy fossil digging. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with the player, appearing friendly and competitive when talking to them. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers, by judging their fitness and physique. For some reason His Picture Quote seem's like a lazy personality villager will use it.


Nicholas's house is based on a regular normal backyard with a dog house in the corner. Nicholas has a backyard fence wallpaper which maches his backyard theme. Nicholas has a Cabana Dresser, when pressing on it , it say's "WOW THIS DRESSER IS DIRTY." Nicholas has Cafe_K.K. playing in his house.
