Nate is very rebellious, vain, conceited, arrogant, sarcastic, quick-tempered, greedy, and very self absorbant as seen in the comics and chapter books he is in. However, he is funny (though many characters would say otherwise), noble, hardworking (depending on what he is doing) and he always sticks up for himself and his friends when they are being bullied. Despite the fact that his grade point average is very low, he is shown to be quite smart at various times. His sarcastic/dramatic nature also tends to land him in the principal's office often. He has been given detention so many times that he is the unofficial detention "tour guide", although he wears the title with pride.

Nate has confessed his love for fellow student Jenny Jenkins, much to her chagrin, and he makes any attempt to flirt/talk with her, despite the fact she has a boyfriend (Artur Pashkov).


  • He is 4'6" and 87 pounds.
  • He got seven detentions all in one day, shown in Big Nate in a Class By Himself but at one point, got 10 detentions in one day on an earlier comic strips when Nate was making fun of Mrs. Godfrey's fingers, making it one detention for each finger.
  • He has compared himself to Superman and some other superheroes.
  • His locker is shown to contain many valuable items, such as a faberge egg (?) , a signed copy of the Declaration of Independence, an original Picasso painting, extremely old records, 100 dollar bills (yes, it says 100 dollar bills) , and various other valuables. He once even opened a business where he would give a person anything from it for a dollar, though he closed it when a kid gave him a dollar and asked for a 10 dollar bill, with the kid getting a 9 dollar profit. He could have asked for a 100 dollar bill, though.
  • He has Ailurophobia, meaning he is afraid of cats. However, this is not on all occassions with Nate.
  • He has beaten Jefferson once, as shown in Big Nate Goes for Broke, on the Ultimate Snowdown chapter, or Chapter 11.
  • In "Big Nate: Add More Babes", he mentioned something that happened concerning the divorace of Martin Wright (Dad) and his mother in a poem, and all that was "If Mom had custody".
  • Nate is also a Scorpio.
  • Nate has broken his wrist twice, he broke it while playing football in October 1992, and he broke his wrist falling off a lunch table in Jefferson School in Big Nate Goes For Broke.
