Nick has a unibrow and a thin moustache. He has long shoulder length brown hair tied back into a pony tail and wears a grey suit. He is Italian-American with suggested Mafia ties.
Relationship with Big Bob
Nick Vermicelli seems to be Bob's informal business advisor, as in "Runaway Float" when he critiqued the kids' Wanky Land float for not representing the Beeper company properly. He proposed the idea to cover the float with a giant wooden-framed beeper. Nick's plan failed miserably when Bob lost control of the new bulky and awkward float and ended up almost crashing the float. Luckily Arnold intervened by catching up to the float on a borrowed bike, climbing behind the wheel of the old car the float was built on, and yanking the emergency brake.
He later appears in Save the Tree helping Bob's plan to bulldoze the tree Mighty Pete in order to build a new Beeper Emporium where the tree is located. They attempt to bulldoze the tree sneakily by doing it at midnight on the day of the scheduled demolition, but the kids were already in the tree and tried to stop them. When Helga joins the other kids to save the tree, Nate tries to press on with the bulldozer in an attempt to scare the kids out of the tree. Not wanting to see Helga get hurt, Bob throws Nate out of the driver's seat and tussles with him on the ground, leaving the bulldozer unmanned heading towards Mighty Pete. Arnold's Grandma (acting like Tarzan) manages to get in the bulldozer and steers it away from Mighty Pete and saves the tree while Nate chases after her.
He was one of the secondary antagonists of the movie, where he became Mr. Scheck's associate. After Big Bob finds out that he has been tricked by Vermicelli into signing an unfair contract that would give Scheck 51% ownership of the Beeper Emporium, Bob shows up at Nick's house and the two get into a fight. During this fight, Bob gets covered in pickle juice and winds up looking like the Incredible Hulk. Bob loses that fight when Nick knocks him out by slamming the refrigerator door on his head, but he catches up to Nick at the end movie as he is attempting to drive away in his pickup truck. Bob bodyslams Nick into his truck. Nick nervously attempts to make it up to him, but Bob won't have any of it and knocks him out with one punch. It is unknown what happens to Nick after this.
