Nikki Wong

Nicole "Nikki" Wong is a fictional character in the animated Canadian sitcom 6teen. She is voiced by Stacey DePass.

Overview

Nikki's first appearance comes in "Take This Job and Squeeze It," where while walking with Jonesy she pokes fun at his over-the-top ideas of what having a summer job will be like. The personality that she gives off during this walk holds strong throughout the show, as Nikki is constantly depicted as an irreverent and snarky teenage girl. She is one of the original five members of the group, and takes the longest amount of time to warm up to Caitlin.

Nikki works at the Khaki Barn, a retail establishment which she absolutely loathes due to its commitment to conformity. She works there because it was one of the only stores that was both hiring and willing to take her on as an employee. Her inability to be hired elsewhere was seen in "Welcome to the Darth Side," where she was unable to procure employment anywhere besides Stereo Shack–and even then only because Darth had a crush on her. While working at the Khaki Barn, Nikki is often lazy and surly and is generally regarded as one of the worst employees there; in fact, in "Employee of the Month," she somehow managed to have -5% sales over the course of a week. Despite this, she has shown an ability to sell clothes (especially to Kyle Donaldson) when she puts her mind to it; she did so in "The Sushi Connection" and "Oops, I Dialed It Again." Nikki's attitude is also somewhat appreciated by her coworkers, who like that she leaves all of the commissions to them.

This doesn't stop the Clones from frequently getting on Nikki's nerves. Often, it seems to be their personality that irritates her, as they act as ditzy, Khaki Barn obsessed airheads much of the time; however, they have occasionally shown impetus for Nikki's reaction. For example, in "The Wedding Destroyers" they decide that Nikki shoplifted goods from the store with no evidence whatsoever, and in "Another Day at the Office" they use her as the "fashionably-impaired girl" in a magazine ad. Despite this, it is uncertain whether their actions are done out of malice towards Nikki, out of a lack of empathy for her, or whether they are a reaction to Nikki's often snooty attitude towards them.

In addition to being snarky and sarcastic, Nikki is not much of a romantic. In part, this is attributable to bad experiences in the past: in "Stupid Over Cupid," it was mentioned that Nikki had once had a prankster paste her face all over naked Cupids put up in the school, and that she once got food poisoning at a Valentine's Day dance from eating year-old chocolate creams given to her by her date. Also, over the course of the show, despite only being involved with three people romantically she was treated poorly by two of them. The first, Hunter, cheated on her with Caitlin and several other girls; the second, Stone, ended up breaking up with her in order to get back together with his ex (and tried to hire Jonesy to do it for him).

However, Nikki has the longest-running relationship in the show of any of the leads. Her (second) relationship with Jonesy lasted through the second half of the series run and was mostly problem-free, with exceptions occurring in "Silent Butt Deadly" and "Insert Name Here." Jonesy and her fit well together, as they know a lot about each other and each other's personalities, and are able to understand each other well and support each other while staying friends and often making fun of each other. In fact, their first attempt at a relationship only failed because Nikki was afraid that the relationship was becoming more important than their friendship–a pitfall that they ended up avoiding after getting back together again.

Despite her sarcastic and often aloof manner, Nikki has been shown to care for her friends deeply. This is best exemplified in "Bye Bye Nikki? Part 2," where she shows how much she cares for her friends by giving them all very personal going-away gifts: to Caitlin she gives Caitlin's original cut-up credit card so that Caitlin will know that she can survive anything, to Jen she gives a flier for Jen's first snowboarding competition, and to Jude she gives a silly hat that works well with his quirky personality. The only people who don't receive "gifts" per se are Wyatt and Jonesy; Wyatt is shown a copy of the first demo album he ever recorded and Nikki tells him that she still listens to it, while she tells Jonesy that she'll always love him.

  • Nikki has known Jen and the boys since they were in Kindergarten.

    • She also has stated that she does not want to be working for the Khaki Barn in 2 years.
    • She once tried to get a job at the Galleria Mall travel agency, but failed due to a bad interview.
  • Like with Wyatt and Jude, it's never confirmed if Nikki's an only child or if she has any siblings. Later episodes (including the series finale) imply that she's an only child, but a couple of early episodes suggest that she has siblings.
    • Jen claims that Nikki has a sister in 6teen: Dude of the Living Dead, but the events of the episode were eventually revealed to be just a dream that Jude was having, so this might not be true.
    • In "The Fake Date," Nikki mentions having a 6-year-old nephew, which all-but-explicitly confirms that she has an older sibling.
  • Nikki's the only one of the main six to have both of her parents appear in the show.
    • Caitlin, Wyatt and Jude's parents are mentioned (and are assumed to be married), but never make any physical appearances.
    • Jen's mom and Jonesy's dad are mentioned as well as seen in person, but Jen's dad and Jonesy's mom have never been seen in person (though they have been mentioned).

    • Normally, Nikki hates chocolate, but during her menstrual cycle she eats chocolate and in "Stupid Over Cupid" she is seen eating chocolate ice cream.
  • Nikki loves to eat popcorn with green gummy bears on top.
  • Apparently, Nikki has a sweet tooth, because when Caitlin gave the gang a cake for a "lame anniversary" (according to Nikki), she was still quite eager to have a slice of it.
  • Nikki used to take dance classes in the first grade.
  • Nikki hates makeovers and girly girl things. Unlike Caitlin and Jen, Nikki prefers a backpack to a purse and is the only girl in the group to not wear a skirt.
  • Nikki ostensibly wears contact lenses since she wore glasses as a child. Further evidence is provided for this in "Snow Job" when she pretends to have been searching for a lost contact when Chrissy discovers her hiding under a table.
