* HiddenDepths: Besides being a sympathetic TeamMom, in Episode 7 Nathan is shown to be a good thinker and one who's not beyond having serious moments. It's also hinted in the show (and later confirmed by WordOfGod) that the AlwaysCamp tendencies are at least partially affected. Also, while he's far from the best Hero according to the rankings, Nathan is still the most successful person on the team outside of [=HeroTV=], being the CEO of several successful businesses.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Possibly for Creator/RuPaul
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Nathan likes to troll male colleagues this way.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Lunatic has the same powers as Nathan does, but Lunatic's powers are considerably more versatile. Nathan is also one of the lower-ranking NEXT in the [=HeroTV=] lists, which might have something to do with the fact that "shoot fire from your hands" is a power that's rather short on harmless (or at least non-lethal) uses for a job that's strictly ThouShaltNotKill. During the test in Episode 6, Kotetsu comments that - needing to prove his innocence - Nathan is being a lot more aggressive than usual with these NEXT powers, to the point that the building is at risk of collapse.
