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 mean and abusive person. So in an attempt to win Flapjack back K'nuckles wrestled Flapjack's new mentor (who just happened to have a passion for wrestling; he does it in his spare time), when it appeared that K'nuckles was on the verge of losing a masked thief stole currency from the Businessman's bank and when the Banker went in pursuit he unmasked the thief who was revealed to actually be Kid Nickels, who tearfully explained that he had a deep love of money and all his life all he ever had was two nickels, the Banker understanding his situation sympathized with him and decided to make him his new apprentice. They both then shared a warm hug and Kid Nickels subsequently stole his wallet. They now work together, although whether Kid Nickles actually enjoys his new job is up for debate. He was later last seen as one of the mourners at Captain K'nuckles' funeral in My Guardian Angel Is Killing Me.
- He is called Kid Nickels because on account of the the 2 nickels he has had his whole life.
- He has a strong love for many things. Some of them being: fighting, getting what he wants, money, the 2 nickels that he has had his whole life, and crime.
- He physically resembles Flapjack, as they even wear a similar hat and Kid Nickels hair is curled out as Flapjack`s hair is curled in, and his nose is almost a clone of *K`nuckle`s. Basically, he's a combination of Flapjack and K'nuckles.
- K'Nuckles nickname for KN is K'Nickels (inspired by K'nuckles).
