Mixels Wiki

Niksput is an Orbiton Mixel.



Niksput, despite being charming and having a high bravado along with being the leader of his tribe, has a slow mind. He has the tendency to say that he is up for anything, but only realizing later of the consequences of his actions and ending up terrified.

Physical Appearance

Niksput has a white body with a yellow-green underbite sporting two sharp teeth, two arms with white wings with red lights at the tips. Over the wings are yellow-green arms with black hands. His head has one cycloptic eye covered by a glass cover, and two yellow-green sides with white points underneath. He sports a black pompadour hairstyle with sideburns, and one jet-pack roaring with fire. His eyelids alternate between green and black.

In the cartoon, his legs are in a darker shade of gray.



Niksput can fly with his wings and jetpack.


Early life

Not much is known about Niksput's early life. However, he did manage to become the leader of the Orbitons. Also, he headed a botched attempt to fend off the Glowkies.

First adventures

During an abduction, he and his brothers abducted the Infernites to Mixel Moon using their Ship-Space. However, the Infernites were not happy with the abduction, causing a Max battle, but the two tribes later reconciled.

Finding Naut's speech about Orbitopia's glass dome boring, he found interest in Burnard's smoke lasso trick. This later came in handy for saving the dome when the two of them Mixed. Although they ended being the ones to accidentally break the glass dome afterward.

During the welcome party outside Orbitopia, he played volleyball with Flamzer, only to get hit in the head with the ball.

Once the Glowkies started attacking, he and Flamzer teamed up and Mixedto fend them back, but later found them friendly and joined in their party.

When Flamzer claimed that he did not exist outside of his story, he started to break down into tears. ("Mixel Moon Madness")

Niksput failed to slam dunk while Basketboarding numerous times until he Mixed with Burnard. ("Niksput and Burnard Mix")

Further adventures

Niksput had attended a special convention with his Orbiton brothers, fellow alien tribe the Glowkies, and new friends, the Infernites. At it, they competed in quite a few events. ("Mixels Convention Craze")

Niksput was one of many Mixels who were forced to outrun the Nixelstorm and help shut it down. ("Mixels Rush")

Niksput was one of almost all of the Mixels who searched and fought for the Mixamajig, and then captured by King Nixel. He Maxed with his branch of the Orbitons in order to defeat him, and Mixopolis was revealed by the Weldos soon after. ("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")

Niksput appears as a statue in Mixopolis. ("Nixel, Nixel, Go Away")

Behind the Scenes

Early development

Niksput's original artwork showed him with a standard eye, without a second highlight. He was also originally going to fly with his jetpack, rather that jet boots, showing more set-accuracy.

Name and basis

Niksput's name is a spoonerism of "Sputnik", the Russian word for "rocket"; which was used as the name for the first unmanned satellite "Sputnik I".

His pompadour, combined with his space theme, seems to be a reference to the title character of the anime Space Dandy. However, the lead designer says he is reminiscent of Elvis Presley.


In the TV series, and where sound clips are used, Niksput's voice is provided by Andrew Kishino.

Real-life history

Niksput appeared with the rest of Series 4 through 6 at Toy Fairs in late January and early February 2015.

Niksput debuted in the TV series on March 9, 2015 in Mixel Moon Madness, while his LEGO set officially became available on February 1 with the rest of Series 4.
