Nigel is the true main male antagonist/villain of the Rio anime film series, Alvin and the and Angry Birds video game series. He was once Marcel's personal companion, who has a strong dislike towards Marcel's two minions Armando and Tipa. He was ultimately killed by an enraged Theodore Seville at the end of Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Trouble in Rio de Janeiro when Theodore angrily throws him into a spinning airplane turbines like a rag doll in revenge for hurting his girlfriend Eleanor Miller in front of him, and shredded him into pieces, which leaves nothing, but his white feathers and skeleton. He made a cameo appearance in Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Rio Trial as one of Eleanor Miller's king cards alongside Marcel, Armando, and Tipa. Like Marcel, Nigel has been shown be cold, cruel, evil, and sadistic by taking pleasure in physically and emotionally tormenting, torturing, provoking, and bullying anybody he seems to view as insects, maggots, and parasites that needs to be annihilated and destroyed.
Nigel doesn't appear at all in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Forgotten Memories, but he only made a cameo appearance on one of Brittany Miller's king cards alongside Marcel, Armando, Tipa, and Chick Hicks.
