Open fire!
—Nebula Violette

Nebula Violette[1] is the leader of Team NDGO. Nebula and her team fight Team SSSN in a match of the Vytal Festival Tournament in the episode "New Challengers...".


Nebula has lightly tanned skin, indigo hair brushed over to her left side and olive eyes. She wears a high-necked, tight-fitting gray shirt with dark gray accents, along with a long, lilac coat with one long sleeve with the other rolled up. She also wears a leather bandolier with a steel gray pauldron on the right shoulder, which also appears to hold her weapon. She wears a slanted dark gray belt on the second notch alongside a breastplate that matches her pauldron. She wears gray pants with dark gray boots with light gray laces alongside dark gray forearm length gloves with the left glove being fingerless and having a cuff. She also has a dark gray band around her right elbow with a smaller band on her upper left arm.


As one of Shade's Vacuan students, Nebula was one of the greatest critics of the other schools, unimpressed by their failures to protect Haven Academy and Beacon Academy, thus choosing to torment them about it. Nebula is brash and quick to taunt her enemies, being particularly resentful towards non-Vacuans. However, she is also perceptive and sensible enough to stop fighting once she knows her enemies are defeated.

During the Vytal Festival, prior to her team's match against team SSSN, Nebula stands with a calm, collected but overall confident posture. She gives team SSSN a respectful smile once they formally meet. When Neptune Vasilias attempts to flirt with her and the rest of her team, Nebula reacts with embarrassment rather than with anger or disgust. When the ocean biome of the Amity Arena is selected, Nebula is shown to be shocked at the revelation of Neptune's fear of water.

Nebula has dubious morality, having no qualms letting Octavia Ember use children as bait for the Grimm despite potential injuries. She is also a coward, having fled the Battle of Beacon with her team, under the excuse that it was a lost cause to fight.

She also enjoys combat, displaying she enjoyed combat more when it is more challenging, such as when she went to face Scarlet David during her one-on-one fight during their teams' match in the Vytal Festival. In Before the Dawn, she is shown to enjoy combat when it becomes easier for herself. She also states she'd been waiting for a chance to fight and beat down on Velvet Scarlatina.

Powers and Abilities

She is more skilled at hand-to-hand combat than Velvet Scarlatina, albeit being slower. She is also proficient with wielding a club.[2]


Main article: Nebula's Crossbow

Nebula's weapon of choice is her Crossbow. It has the capability to transform into a sword. She is shown to be quite adept at both marksmanship and sword fighting, but was still unable to best Scarlet David in a one-on-one fight.


  • Her surname is a variation of "violet", which is a deep purple. In Astronomy, a nebula is a cloud of interstellar gas and dust, that can showcase a variety of colors, including violet.
    • Nebula's surname is spelled as both Violette (on the scoreboard) and Violetta (in the end credits). Her creator has confirmed that it was intended to be spelled the former way.
  • Nebula and the rest of Team NDGO were created by a group of fans who backed Rooster Teeth's Lazer Team Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. Nebula was voiced by her creator Grace Bono, who was also credited as "Team NDGO Character Consultant" in the credits of the episode. Nebula has additional spoken lines supplied by Kate Warner.[3]
  • Mylissa Zelechowski, creator and voice of Gwen Darcy, has stated that the creators of Team NDGO's headcanon for Nebula's sexuality is that she is asexual, along with Gwen and Dew.[4] However, this has yet to be publicly confirmed by Rooster Teeth.
