"KIDS NEXT DOOR! *group hugs* Goodbye." — Numbuh 1 saying his final goodbye to his teammates and best friends before going to the Galactic KND.
Nigel Uno a.k.a. Numbuh 1 is the main protagonist of the 2002 animated series, Codename: Kids Next Door. He is the British Kids Next Door Operative Leader in Sector V.
Why He Never Ends
- He is the bald, astute, no-nonsense leader of Sector V, who always makes sure the KND are at their best.
- He’s an incredibly skilled fighter, along with Numbuh 4, one of the greatest examples of his strength is defeating Numbuh 274, the greatest KND operative of his time.
- He shows great care for his teammates and best friends, which is not only shown throughout the series, but also during an emotional goodbye with them in Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S.
- He was considered to be a suitable candidate for both Supreme Leader and Global Tactical Officer in the past, but refused both to stay with his friends, which shows dedication and loyalty to them.
- As the leader, he is quick to jump into action and he is quite resourceful, which is helpful when facing dangerous enemies, especially Father.
- He is shown to have a great bond with his family, with his parents, Monty and Mrs. Uno, being former KND members, Numbuhs 0 and 999, which strengthens their bond even further upon finding out, with his parents being proud of him.
- He never gives up on missions, always protects innocent children, including his fellow KND friends, from evil adults, and always finds a way to succeed in life.
- Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S. shows him becoming the single earth representative of the Galactic KND, which is amazing.
- Benjamin Diskin does a great job voicing him.
- His workoholia occasionally makes him unlikable.
- He can be reckless, hot-tempered, stubborn, and act alone sometimes.
- He is rather naive sometimes, like in Operation: D.I.A.P.E.R., when he believes that babies were kidnapped and brought to the hospital to be aged into adults, and that babies come from "baby eggs".
- Because of both his naiveness and stubbornness, he refuses to listen to Numbuh 5 when she points out the truth against his theories.
- Numbuh 1's codename is Numbuh 1, because his surname is uno, Spanish and Italian for one.
- Numbuh 1 is the only member of Sector V who doesn't have a brother or sister.
- Numbuh 1 is the only member of Sector V who hasn't been married in Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S., because of him leaving the Earth for the GKND.
- How he lost his hair is one story that the writers would like to tell one day.
