"ExCUSE me, but I have NOT come this far to give up now!"
--Nikki to Lukas in Episode 3 The Last Place You Look (Rewritten Edition)Nikki is one of the main protagonists of the MC:SM Rewritten series. She is Jesse's younger sister.
Nikki is a short 14-year-old girl with long chestnut brown hair in a ponytail, similar to Jesse's, and has tanned white skin. Her eyes are emerald green like his as well. She usually wears a gray hoodie and faded jeggings with a gray shirt with white letters that read "Tiny but Mighty."
In one of the final chapters of Episode 4, "Getting an Upgrade," she chooses the "Star Shield" in Ivor's armory.
Her amulet Ender Dragon form consists of that of a normal Ender Dragon, except the form is completely golden, and she has a command block tattoo on her forehead. The veins that spread through her wings are red.
Nikki has a naive, adventurous personality. By day, she's a fun-loving bundle of energy who can't be stopped, but by night, she's more calmer, and quieter, due to lack of energy or just being cute in general. Nikki especially hates the fact that people judge her over her height, and she doesn't like to let it go unnoticed. Nonetheless, Nikki has a forgiving heart, and could spare even the cruelest of villains. As an Ender Dragon, she can be very fierce, and swift. At first, transforming into one was an involuntary action, but by Episode 8, she understood how to control it at last, and used it to defeat Hadrian.
"Hey! He may be a blockhead, but he's MY blockhead! You deal with him, you deal with me!"
--Nikki defending Jesse against Hadrian, Book 8
Nikki loves her older brother to no end, but can be easily annoyed when he acts oblivious, or stupid. Most of the time, she tries to encourage him when it comes to confessing his feelings for Petra. She trusts Jesse the most out of everyone she knows, so uncovering any lies he made could be impacting.
"Best sister-in-law EVER!"
--Nikki at the wedding, The Origin of Nikki
Nikki and Petra are actually quite similar, which would make them good sisters. Unfortunately, only something like that could happen if Jesse admits his feelings for her. Like she does with Jesse, Nikki usually tries to encourage Petra to voice her own affection, but not as often as she does with Jesse, as Petra is a little harder to break through to.
Towards Olivia and Axel
Despite being older than her, Nikki finds her brother's friends quite interesting. Considering the fact that the feel the same way towards her, all of them are the best of friends. (And of course, she believes that they should be together)
Reuben is not only Jesse's, but Nikki's beloved pet as well. She loves him just as much as her brother does, and finds him as a best friend.
"He's no jerk!"
--Nikki reprimanding Jesse about Lukas, The Order of the Stone: (Rewritten Edition)
Unlike her friends and her brother, Nikki didn't rule Lukas off as an enemy right off the bat. She got to know him a little better before judging him for what she saw and what she heard from the others. This shows that Nikki is very understandable towards Lukas, and treats him the way she wishes she were treated herself.
Towards The Classic Order
At first, she respected the Classic Order for the heroes she thought them to be. But when the truth was discovered, it took a long while for her to forgive them.
Nikki found Ivor to be evil at first, but then hilarious and clever when she realized his true motives. Nikki and Ivor aren't seen interacting much, but Ivor usually turns to Nikki when dealing with his crush on Harper.
"He's so cute!"
--Nikki meeting Zephyr for the first time, Book 1
Zephyr is the tiny Ender bat Nikki meets in Episode 1 at EnderCon. He rescues Reuben from Otis the Butcher, and he becomes the Reuben to Nikki's Jesse.
Towards The Old Builders
Harper and Otto
Harper was a kinder, more gentle Old Builder than the rest of them. And with Otto sticking to the rules, Nikki didn't find them so bad as she expected them to be.
Hadrian and Mevia
Nikki saw these two elders to be far worse than Harper. When Lukas and Ivor were seemingly killed, she acted very aggressively towards them before Otto explained everything.
"AHHHHHH! OLD MAN CLOUD FACE!"
--Nikki meeting Phillip for the first time, How to be a Hero
Phillip, although deceased, was very wise and kind to Nikki. She sees him as her mentor, and calls to him in a troubling situation.
Towards the Gladiators
For the record, Nikki did NOT get on Slab's good side. Jesse, however, was able to get to know him better than she did. All in all, they still turned out friends in the end.
"'Facemeat?' Wow, your mom must've really hated you,"
--Nikki meeting Facemeat, Book 8
Facemeat was a big guy on the outside, but was as harmless as a baby inside, according to Nikki. This allowed her to befriend the big fella, and they are now on good terms.
"Oh no...Oh, HELL NO! You did NOT just kill my future sister-in-law!"
--Nikki raging at Clutch for killing Petra, Book 8
Both Jesse and Nikki resented Clutch for killing Petra in the Lava Race, but when they became allies, things changed a bit. Nikki still hasn't completely forgiven her for her past deed, which is unlike her, but for now, they're good.
Towards The YouTubers
To be honest, Nikki had a neutral opinion for all these characters, as the writer didn't know too much about their actual personalities.
Towards the Deviants
The pack of real-life friends she met in Episode 1 acted their age. Nikki found this intriguing, upon being that same age herself.
Towards The Blaze Rods
Nikki found it rather easy to make a comeback at any harsh words Aiden threw at her. Like everyone else, she thought of him as a jerk
Maya and Gill
Personally, she feels sorry for them, upon being pushed around by Aiden, not being given a choice. But other than that, Nikki pays no attention to these characters.
Ironically, Nikki doesn't find PAMA to be so horrible at first. She finds the fact that PAMA openly states how Jesse cares immensely for Petra amusing, and takes it to her advantage. Of course, it was later realized to be a trick to malfunction it so Jesse and Ivor could escape.
Towards Milo and Isa
Nikki doesn't come in contact with these other two either, but believes they make a good couple.
Nikki is a good with a sword, but is more handy in agility-type fights and hand-to-hand combat. Her personal favorite move is the Warrior Whip.
Command Block Powers
"Alright. If crazy yellow beams start shooting out the windows, fear not! I am simply learning how to use this damn trinket!"
--Nikki attempting to discover the amulet's power, How to be a Hero
By the power of the The Command Block Amulet, Nikki can turn herself into a large, golden dragon which can sound a roar than can create a shockwave that either destroys or creates, depending on the dragon's will, levitate blocks with the tattoo on her forehead, and has crazy superstrength. She can also fly, thanks to the wings on her back. Another cool power she bears with the dragon is a sonic "blockboom." If she goes fast
enough, then she can break the sound barrier, emanating a large shockwave which wipes out everything within a 50-mile radius.
In her human form, Nikki can summon large pillars of blocks to throw at her enemies.
Nikki also has semi-healing powers. This means that she can heal any stab wound, but no sickness. She can't raise the dead either.
Nikki can cast "eyes" underneath the surface of the earth to sense any movements so she can track people. It's excellent for long-distance fugitive-tracking.
If not armed with the command block amulet, Nikki can still turn into a dragon: by fusing with another person. She discovers this power with her brother, who is closer to her than anyone else.
When fused with Jesse, Nikki can from a huge white-and-gold swirled dragon called Nessie, who can fly, swim, and shoot fireballs.
Niketra is the dragon fusion of Petra and Nikki. She can't fly like Nessie can, but she has super-sharp claws, and a better armored body.
Nikki is very energetic, which can make her a fast mover in battle. Also, she has great word use, which makes her hard to out-diss. Nikki may be small, but being tiny has its uses, such as hiding, or getting out of reach.
"You're gonna wish you stayed home in your crib, runt,"
--Aiden taunting Nikki for her height, Book 1
Nikki is impatient as well as energetic, which could make her rush into trouble real quick. Lucky she has Jesse to bail her out, but it's not an easy task. Being small has cons as well, for example, reaching high spots is a problem. She also has claustrophobia: she gets nervous in small spaces and panics when walls start caving in.
- Nikki's "secret power," is a reference to "Steven Universe" fusions.
- The sonic "blockboom," is also a reference, to Rainbow Dash's Sonic Rainboom in the My Little Pony franchise.
- Nikki's name was crafted out of Jetrashipper's Deviantart name: theninjakid14, from the word, "ninja."
- Her original name was originally planned to be Nicole, and Nikki was a nickname. But the nickname was used so much that it was decided to be the fitting name, and Nicole was to be and Old Builder, and previous command block amulet wielder.
- Her starting age is 14, which was crafted from the "14" in "theninjakid14."
- Nikki's character was based off of Shipper's real-life older sibling, someone they look up to and wish to be like.

- The saying on Nikki's shirt, "Tiny but Mighty," is a movie quote from Disney's "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."
- It is revealed in "The Vex Bride" that Nikki's birthday is Oct. 15th, which is interesting, because this is also the same day when she was first created by Shipper.
- On a side note, it was coincidental, for Nikki also happened to be turning 15.
- Most of Nikki's art comes from Shipper's friend on Deviantart, Michioreo123. (Awesome MC:SM artist, by the way)
