|English voice actor(s)||Matthew Géczy|
Nicholas Poliakoff is an eighth grader at Kadic. He is a member of Sissi's Gang, and mostly just stands there staring into space unless Sissi orders him to follow her. He is the stereotypical dumb, muscle kind of bully. It is still unknown why exactly Nicholas joined Sissi's "gang", but it is probably due to the fact Herb did. Nicholas also has a crush on Aelita, but has never acted on it. He can play the drums, and is in the Pop Rock Progressives, a band started by Odd. As a result, he is certainly more tolerant of and kinder toward Team Lyoko than Herb and Sissi are. In some episodes, it is shown he has at least some degree of intelligence, as he wrote the play in Laughing Fit. Nicholas is also easy to scare, as with Herb.
Nicholas is shown to act like the steriotypical dumb Jock. Evidence from most episodes show that Nicholas can be violent given the right situations. He has an extremely strange sense of humor. Nicholas is Herb's best friend, and therefore usually agrees with him in arguments and follows his lead. In Attack of the Zombies, it is revealed that Nicholas watches a lot of horror movies, and therefore has a good picture of zombie motives and weaknesses. While Nicholas does not look it, he can be pretty brave, he and Herb have explored the factory many times and has made the jump using the hanging ropes. When Odd formed his band in season 1, Nicholas is shown to be an excellent Drummer and joins Odd's band, to Odd's anger. Nicholas is shown to be protective of his friend Herb.
Relationships with other characters
It is shown in some of the episodes in season 2 that he had a crush in Aelita.
Nicholas and Herb constantly play pranks on Odd in which Odd usually gets back at them by the end of the epsode, but besides their pranking they seem to somewhat enjoy their company.
Nicholas seems to be one of Herb's only friends at the school; they seem to get along like to peas in a pod, despite having completely different personalities and interests. For reference, where Herb excells in class, Nicholas excells in sports. While Herb can be descibed as timid, Nicholas is shown as brave.
Nicholas is shown to have very little interest in being in Sissy's gang. from this fact it can be reasoned that the only reason that Nicholas hanged out with Sissy was that he wanted to be with his friend Herb. Nicholas is usually against being with Sissy, and is shown to be unhappy while helping her. In Echoes, he and Herb are rejected by Sissi; she referred to them as "dorks". Nicholas is the only person in Sissy's gang who is not openly hostile to Jeremie, as well as the Lyoko Warriors. While he is not openly hostile towards the gang, he will laugh at them if they ask a dumb question or mess up during class.
Nicholas and Herb constantly play pranks on Jim, much to his dislike.
- He occasionally likes to ask people if they would like to have a "Fantastic and breathtaking experience in the moonlight tonight" as shown in Replika and Kadic Bombshell. That particular "experience" is fishing under the bridge which leads to the Factory.
- In the french version of Code Lyoko, his voice is provided by Carole Baillien, as is Sissi's voice.
- In the Spanish, European dialect, dub, he was voiced by Javier Balas in season 1. However, his actor changed from season 2 onward.
- He is an excellent drummer.
