- "What, me? I’m Nikki. I make coffee and give fake smiles at the cafe around the corner. I like video games and wasting time on the internet…seriously, there’s not much to me. My taste in games is pretty retro; I spend too much time at the arcade. I like fighting games, shoot-em-ups and platformers. Wait, don’t tell me, you’re the kind of guy that plays those weird anime dating games."
- — Original Intro
Nikki has a slim physique. Her blue eyes match the color of her hair that only extend to her shoulders, and wears glasses with a frame large enough to cover her eyelashes. In her usual attire, she wears an oversized sweater that is slanted to show her bra strap. She also wears white shorts that are patterned in black. She wears black shoes with white patterns and grey shoelaces.
"Nikki despises her job as a barista at the Cafe. She doesn't particularly like or trust people and certainly doesn't go out of her way to accommodate them or make them feel welcome. She is almost always cold and distant to new people she meets, but she'll warm up to those who she feels understand her. Nikki spends her free time at home playing video games, browsing the web, reading comics, updating her blog and getting involved in conspiracy theories" - Game Description
“Nikki is a shy nerd girl who started out streaming video games but quickly realized how much more money she could make by showing the goods” - HunieCam Studio Bio
"Nikki works at the Cafe as a Barista. She would go to university with her friends Tiffany and Audrey if she didn’t believe it was a waste of her time. As an autodidact, she’s really good at teaching herself anything she needs to know. She spends a lot of time at her computer browsing the internet, reading web comics, updating her blog and getting involved in conspiracy theory groups just for fun. In addition to being a talented artist, Nikki is an avid gamer and sinks a large chunk of her paycheck into arcade machines every week."-Original Backstory

- HuniePopDev has stated on his Twitter that Nikki got her name due to the fact that "I've known several girls named Nikki and all of them are shy/nerdy/artsy girls, so it seemed too perfect".
- Nikki is the only one of the main cast (human girls) confirmed to have an unnatural hair colour that is not achieved by use of dye. Audrey may be another.
- Nikki's favourite hangout "Her Home" is the only location that is one of the girl's favourite hangouts in which the player can not access.
- Nikki is one of three characters to wear glasses.
- Given the memes and references peppered throughout HuniePop, Nikki may be a caricature of camgirl Anna Molli, who became popular on the link-sharing site Reddit when a post of her art went up on the front page of r/gaming. Both used to share a similar build, haircut, and hairstyle; both also wear similar glasses. This is only speculation, however.
- Nikki might be based on the Kuudere, a sort of acting in Japanese works. These are almost polar opposites to a tsundere, the only similarity is that both are not common to talk to their love interests directly because of both building their relationship status over time. Kuuderes are shy and don't like company and are antisocial in their behaviour. They tend to have a "shell" around themselves where they only let special people through. They tend to want to be alone most of the time, similar to the way Nikki acts towards people. Common for Kuuderes is that they don't have many friends if any. Nikki also doesn't have many friends, making her one of the common sort of kuudere because she has only two friends, Audrey and Tiffany.
