Information

Backstory

Nibbs is a dragon warrior in service to the Sisterhood of Coba. This demonic group was bound to the Omicron dimension who, as soon as the Starstorm ripped a hole in the continuum, started an invasion of conquest.
Right after going through the portal, Nibbs's ship landed on the space station. Scouting around, she mistook Gnaw's tail for a juicy piece of fruit. After he was bitten, the startled Gnaw led her right back to the Awesomenauts who managed to convince her to stay with a wide variety of exotic treats.

Quotes

Theme Song Lyrics

She is blazing

In the thick of the fight

She's beaming with might

Ferocious and bright


Scorching fire

Burns faces to ashes

All turrets she smashes

One blink and she flashes


Chorus:

Nibbs is here

Fruit and candy are her big desire

Nibbs is here

And she's gonna set the stars on fire

End Chorus


Always hungry

She's fighting for sweets

It's all that she needs

To make killing sprees


Chewing candy

She will break nor bend [sic]

She'll fight and defend

Right there 'til the end


Chorus


Bridge:

Blazing and beaming, ferocious and bright

In the thick of the fight she is raging with might

Sisterhood plights she fulfills like a knight

As long as the treats are alright

End Bridge

Battle Nibbs

Battlenibbssplash.png
For Graygrowl!

Battle Nibbs is here! Clad in fiercesome armor, and with freshly-brushed fur, she pounces onto the battlefield with the most powerful Zurian in the Universe! The hunt for Skreeletor is on!

This DLC contains a custom skin for Nibbs in Awesomenauts: Starstorm, and comes with a fully customized voice set! - Official Steam Store description.


This skin makes Nibbs look similar to Battle Cat[27] from He-Man and The Masters of the Universe[28], with battle armor, a metal saddle and helmet. Her body has yellow, tiger-like stripes and a lion tail. Her wings are removed and she gains cat-like fangs. A small, blonde-haired Zurian dressed like He-Man[29] (The "He-Zurian") rides on her back and wields a tiny sword.

Nibbs' auto-attack is changed, as the He-Zurian also strikes enemies with his sword, fire breath has a different sound effect (more feline sounding) and orb of Omicron is shaped like Orko's[30] head from the same franchise.

This skin features a special teleporting animation which includes the He-Zurian raising his sword up in the air, which then sparkles.

Being premium, this skin comes with its own unique voice acting.

Unicorn Nibbs

Nibbs 003 Pegasus.png

This skin requires the Awesomenauts base game AND the Awesomenauts: Starstorm expansion.

Unicorn Nibbs is a unicorn warrior in service to the Unicornhood of Coba. This magical group was bound to the Ohmigosh dimension who, as soon as the Starstorm ripped a hole in the continuum, started an invasion of cuddliness.

Right after going through the portal, Nibbs' ship gently touched down on the space station in a pink cloud of smoke. Scouting around, she mistook Gnaw's tail for a juicy piece of lovely unicorn candy. After cheerfully biting down on the treat, the startled Gnaw led her right back to the Awesomenauts who managed to convince her to stay with a wide variety of exotic treats, lots of petting, and by brushing her manes.

This DLC contains a custom skin for Nibbs in Awesomenauts: Starstorm. - Official Steam Store description.


This skin puts Nibbs in a unicorn costume, complete with a mane, a puff at the end of her tail, and a unicorn horn. A zipper can be seen on it as well. Her collar and back leg now have a small hearts on them. Her wings are now pegasus wings. Walking around will leave behind a rainbow trail.

Dragon Frenzy is slightly brighter and makes glittery effects. Orb of Omicron now looks like a heart with wings on it and leaves behind a rainbow trail while flying. Fire Breath itself is unchanged, but it has a new sound effect when it's used.

Trivia

  • Nibbs is the first (and only, to date) Awesomenaut to come from a parallel dimension.
  • Nibbs' Frenzy indicator went through a few changes during Patch 2.9 beta. It started out light blue just like Penny's combo point bar, then it was changed to pink and finally to its current yellow version.
  • Nibbs is the only character who's "Awesomenauts Showcase" video doesn't use their theme song.
  • Nibbs' theme is sung by Jeffrey Zuhdy, who also sung the Awesomenauts' main theme.
  • Nibbs' theme makes specific references to several in-game elements: Fire Breath, Turrets, Orb Of Omicron, and Killing Sprees. No other theme does this.
  • Nibbs is the first 'Naut released without a teleport animation since Penny Fox.
  • Nibbs' killing spree theme is the first one to be solely a remix of her theme, as opposed to mix of her theme with a map track. This change was meant to make Sonic Picnic's job less limiting, as explained by Ronimo Games.
  • Nibbs is the first Awesomenaut that doesn't have an extended backstory.

Tips & Tactics

Playing As:

Playing With:

  • If you have an Ensnare or Stun, try to save it for when Nibbs is around. It helps her hit with Fire Breath.
    • Alternatively; follow up on Nibbs, should she initiate with stuns or slows of her own.
  • Try to make sure that enemies can't hurt Nibbs while she's using her Fire Breath. It leaves her very vulnerable.

Playing Against:

  • Being very frail and slow, Nibbs is naturally vulnerable to burst damage, though she can still escape via Orb Of Omicron. Try to save high damage abilities for when it is on cooldown, or surprise her before she can teleport away.
  • slowdown effects like Time Warp and Timerift can "trap" Nibbs while she's using Fire Breath.
  • Most crowd control effects cannot prevent Nibbs from using her Fire Breath, but stuns will make her unable to aim it where she wants to.
  • Nibbs can use Orb Of Omicron while ensnared, but will still be snared when she teleports. Follow the Orb to keep attacking her.
  • When chasing a fleeing Nibbs as a team, consider splitting up if she throws out an Orb Of Omicron. That way, there will be someone waiting for her at the orb's location if she teleports and people still chasing her should she choose not to teleport.
  • Nibbs is fairly slow for a low health melee 'Naut. You can abuse this to out-maneuver her.
  • The trail of Fire Breath has a slight delay when aiming it. Keep your movements unpredictable to avoid the bulk of the damage.
  • Be careful where you are while on low health; Nibbs can easily close the distance and get in range of you with Orb Of Omicron, while Fire Breath can hit through solid walls. Don't stick around when low on health.
