And my name is Nurp...(switches head)...Naut! Hehehe!
— Nurp-Naut

Nurp-Naut (baby side Nurp, elder side Naut) is an Orbiton Mixel.



Nurp-Naut has two personalities: Nurp, his two-eyed side, has the mind of an innocent toddler, and Naut, his cycloptic side, has the mind of a wise elder. Naut is very smart, but he suffers from forgetfulness that hinders this ability. He is also sometimes accident-prone. Nurp has a tendency to act like a spoiled brat when he does not get his way, and Naut has the tendency to fib on certain situations; something that Nurp will quickly call him out on along when fighting with each other sometimes.

Physical Appearance

Nurp-Naut has a white body with a black collar in the middle, and two golden triangular parts on both side. He has yellow-green arms with small golden hands, and a yellow-green underbite with two teeth pointing up. He has a grey face with one dopey eye, and a white highlight surrounding the head, and two points with red tips, and a black antenna. He has two white feet with one yellow-green toenail on each. He also has grey eyelids, and a set of two eyes and lights at the back of his body.



Nurp-Naut can fly with his jetpack. In his tantrum fits, Nurp's voice can grow to near-demonic levels of deepness. During these, when he bangs his fists, he can send out shock waves that cause large objects to lose their gravity. He has the ability to give any mix that he is in more than one personalty and voice.


Early life

Little is known about Nurp-Naut's past, however, it is known that Nurp-Naut lived with two personalities, and got into plenty of accidents.

During bedtime, Nurp demanded Rokit to tell him a bedtime story. So, he told him the story of the Glowkies, scaring him. As luck would have it, the Glowkies visited just after, causing the Orbitons to launch into a botched mission to defend themselves.

First adventures

During an abduction of the Infernites via their Ship-Space, he found himself as part of a max battle to defend himself, though he and his brothers later befriended the Infernites and introduced himself and his brothers to them.


While giving a tour of Orbitopia, Nurp interrupted Naut, calling him out on lying about the safety of the dome. When Nurp threw a tantrum over not getting Crater Tots and being forced to take a nap, he ended up causing a series of events that shattered the dome.

At the welcome picnic, Nurp happily supplied Oxy-Juice at it and ended up mixing with Meltus to rescue it from a Nixel.

When it seemed like the Glowkies were attacking, he teamed up with Burnard to defend himself. However, once everything was cleared up, he joined them for a cave rave.

When Flamzer claimed that he did not exist outside of his story, Naut switched to Nurp and began to cry. ("Mixel Moon Madness")

Further adventures

At one point in time, Nurp-Naut joined Globert and Burnard in their Ship-Space to explore Outer Space. ("Mixed Up Maze")

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

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

Nurp-Naut 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")

Nurp-Naut is seen being overrun by Nixels when they invaded Mixopolis. ("Nixel, Nixel, Go Away")

LEGO Shop product description

See both sides of life with two-faced Nurp-Naut!

Two-faced Nurp-Naut is both the baby and the elder of the Orbitons tribe. This split personality has one face with the innocent eyes of a toddler, and another with the all-seeing cyclops eye of a know-it-all elder. And if he wasn’t so forgetful, his flashes of wisdom might be more use to his tribe mates. It’s lucky Nurp-Naut has a helmet, too, because that spinning head often causes this accident-prone Mixel to spin out of control and bonk his head on moon rocks!

  • Features a spinning head, helmet, hover feet and posable joints
  • Collect all 3 members of the hi-tech Orbitons tribe to build the totally cosmic MAX!
  • Combine with 41535 LEGO® Mixels™ Boogly from the Glowkies tribe to create a fun new MIX!

Sidebar description

Whirl the spinning head of two-faced Nurp-Naut, 1 of 3 Orbitons tribe members featured in LEGO® Mixels™ Series 4 sets.

Background Information

  • He was one of the first Series 4 Mixels revealed, and was also the first Orbiton revealed.


  • He is very similar to Good Cop/Bad Cop, a character from The LEGO Movie, as they both have two split personalities that change by spinning their heads around, and they both have a tendency to argue with their own personalities. They both also have separate names for their personalities.
    • His personalities, as well as others, treat his opposite personalities as separate entities.
  • His jaw is placed much lower on his body on his LEGO model than in the cartoon. This is likely because of his helmet getting in the way. Also, strangely, his jaw is black on his LEGO model while it is lime in the cartoon.
  • Despite having a lower jaw, he has no visible mouth. Instead, his jaw simply moves up and down when he speaks.
  • His spacesuit appears to be a separate article of clothing from his body. The white section of his spacesuit somewhat resembles a diaper, possibly in reference to Nurp being a baby.
  • An early piece of fan art from a third grader posted by Miranda Dressler labeled him as "Satbingle"[2], but was scribbled out and replaced with Nurp-Nuat. [sic]

  • Nurp is shown to be afraid of the dark, similar to Volectro and Zaptor.
  • Only Nurp is technically playable in Mixels Rush, as the Naut side of Nurp-Naut's head is never seen.

  • Naut's name is continually misspelled as "Nuat", often by the people working on the show.

  • Behind the Scenes

    Early development

    Nurp-Naut's preliminary artwork showed his one larger eye. However, it is still used on the LEGO site, but not on the physical packaging. His arms and body were also slightly different in the preliminary artwork.

    Name and basis

    Nurp-Naut's name is a pun on the word "astronaut".

    He has a jetpack, and a space helmet, which are both similar to what real astronauts use.


    In the TV series, and where sound clips are used, Nurp-Naut's voices are provided by Justin Grollman for Nurp and Rodger Bumpass for Naut.

    Naut has a Yiddish accent, a common stereotype of old men.

    Real-life history

    Nurp-Naut was first revealed as a character in the Mixels franchise on July 24, 2014 at San Diego Comic-Con International. Both his LEGO set and cartoon artwork were shown. Alongside him were Burnard of the Infernites and Globert of the Glowkies.

    Nurp-Naut reappeared with the rest of Series 4 through 6 at Toy Fairs in late January and early February 2015.

    Nurp-Naut 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.
