The Big Nate comic strip's main character. Nate is 11 years old, he is an aspiring cartoonist, drummer, underachiever, and plays funny yet overdone pranks on Prank Day (the last day or 2nd last day of school). He is somewhat self-absorbed, believing himself to be irresistible to women despite repeated rejection, a brilliant sports player despite his poor performance, and a genius despite his poor grades. He spends much of his time in detention, in the art room drawing comics, or playing drums for his band, Enslave the Mollusk, which also comprises his friends Francis and Teddy. He is desperate to own a dog, and loves Cheez Doodles, his favorite snack, with a passion. He is additionally terrified of cats because of ailurophobia, hates figure-skating and egg salad. Surprisingly, he is a naturally gifted chess-player, to the complete confusion of his friends and family.
