* JerkAss: According to one account (published after her death, of course, so she could no longer challenge it) she was a virulent racist who once randomly attacked a black woman while drunk. Then again she also worked with non-white musicians (see the personnel list of ''Drama of Exile'' for example) so maybe she got better as she got older.

* CoverVersion: "The End" by Music/TheDoors on the album of the same name, "I'm Not Saying" by Gordon Lightfoot as her first single, "I'm Waiting for the Man" by Music/VelvetUnderground and "'Heroes'" by Music/DavidBowie on ''Drama of Exile,'' and the pop standard "My Funny Valentine" on ''Camera Obscura.'' In a variation, some of the songs for ''Chelsea Girl'' were written specifically for her by her collaborators.

->"And with [[Music/VelvetUnderground The Velvets]] come the blonde, bland, beautiful Nico, another cooler [[Creator/MarleneDietrich Dietrich]] for another cooler generation. Art [...] will never be the same again."
-->--'''John Wilcock''' of ''The East Village Other'''s review of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable show, quoted in the liner notes of ''Music/TheVelvetUndergroundAndNico'' CD.

Nico soon embarked on a solo career, using the opportunity to demonstrate the full range of her musical talent. Her debut album, ''Chelsea Girl,'' was met with praise, despite the fact that Nico wasn't really involved in the production of the album and was dissatisfied with it. It tends to be a BaseBreaker, with some of her fans regarding it as a great album, and others regarding it as an unworthy recording that is unrepresentative of Nico's talents and has attracted an undue amount of attention. She started taking control of her music starting with her second album. Because of this, her sound evolved into something darker, more experimental, and more harmonium driven. Many of these albums are regarded in some circles as masterpieces. She also worked briefly with the French avant-garde film-maker Philippe Garrel (with whom she had a relationship), making a slew of obscure avant-garde films, ''Le lit de la vierge, La cicatrice interieure, Les hautes solitudes'' that are mirrors to her avant-garde music. They also starred her son Ari, the result of an affair with Creator/AlainDelon (who refused to acknowledge the boy as his son, [[ImplausibleDeniability despite him being the spitting image of Alain]]).

* DreamTeam / HeyItsThatGuy: Nico was good at getting help from talented musicians on her albums. For starters, her first single "I'm Not Sayin'" / "The Last Mile" was produced and had guitar by [[Music/LedZeppelin Jimmy Page.]] ''Chelsea Girls'' features her old Velvet Underground mates Music/LouReed, Music/JohnCale, and Sterling Morrison along with Music/JacksonBrowne. ''The Marble Index'' and ''Desertshore'' had instrumentation entirely by Nico and Cale, ''The End'' kept Cale and added Music/RoxyMusic alumni Music/BrianEno and Phil Manzanera, ''Drama of Exile'' featured Music/IanDuryAndTheBlockheads saxophonist Davey Payne and Music/DavidBowie's keyboardist Andy Clark.
