Physical Appearance

He has brown curly hair, has a bit of a paunch, usually wearing a grided shirt, with a white backpack. He wears black pants with a belt and gray shoes. Whenever he makes the 'P' sound in his speech, he spits in the process.

Personality and Traits

Nick is manipulative, sociopathic, mean, sadistic, and a flat-out liar. He is notable for having a nasty habit of picking his nose.


"...doesn't get much done because he's too busy 'digging for gold.'"
―Nate mentions Nick in a comic[src]

Nate saw Blonsky in a dream, where he remarked that “...everyone is raising their hand, even Nick Blonsky--who is usually is the back row with a pencil up his nose.” Nick was also listed as one of Nate's worst project partners.

"Pinching that camera was the best thing I ever did! [...] Go ahead! Report your butts off! You can't prove anything!"
―Nick Blonsky reveals that he stole the camera from book 5: Big Nate Flips Out[src]

In the story it is seen that he was in-charge of last year's chronicle (which did not go well). Later in the story, Nick finds out Nate has one of the school cameras and steals it from Nate's locker, causing tensions in Nate and Francis' friendship. He later reveals he did this to start and witness a rigged fight. He is soon suspended after Dee Dee recovers proof of this and was not able to join Gina's Geniuses in the Trivia Slam and instead, replaced by Randy Betancourt.

Shortly before Field Day, Nick Blonsky overheard Dee Dee Holloway and Nate Wright during which time he was picking his nose. He was seen again picking his nose again, then in the lunchroom eating by himself. Eventually, he became part of Gina's Geniuses.
