- Not to mention, he literally has green eyes.
- Knight of Cerebus: While the show's previous villains were usually harmless, the same cannot be said for Mr. Nibbles. Not only does he have a deep hatred for the PAW Patrol, but he also had no problem with abandoning Humdinger and the Kitten Catastrophe Crew on a building that was on the verge of collapsing, which would have killed them. Luckily, the PAW Patrol managed to save them in time, but just the thought that the Copycat would leave people to die is absolutely horrific!
- Non Standard Character Design: Unlike every other cat in the show, he's taller, his ears are longer, and his tail is skinny in contrast to the other cats' fluffy tails.
