Kid Nickels is a minor character in the series, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. He is an abusive and mean-spirited cabin boy that appeared in the episode of the same name. He seems to resemble Flapjack, only his face being more orange and having a nose like K'nuckles.
Kid Nickels was originally the cabin boy of a large and ugly adventurer, who had lost him in a card game to K'nuckles. At first, he was a very willing and loyal cabin boy to K'nuckles and eventually replaced Flapjack (who went off to become an apprentice to a banker), but as the episode progressed he began to show his true nature as a very negative person.
In an attempt to win Flapjack back, K'nuckles wrestled Flapjack's new mentor (who just happened to have a passion for wrestling), when it appeared that K'nuckles was on the verge of losing Flapjack.
When the Banker went in pursuit, he later unmasked a thief, who was revealed to actually be Kid Nickels, the cabin-boy tearfully explained that he had a deep love of money and all his life all he ever had was two nickels. As a result, the Banker understood his situation, and sympathized with him, deciding to make him his new apprentice.
They both then shared a warm hug and Kid Nickels subsequently steals his wallet.
He was later last seen as one of the mourners at Captain K'nuckles' funeral in My Guardian Angel Is Killing Me.
