Niccolo (ニキータ Nikīta, lit. Nikita in the Japanese versions) is a character who first debuts in Legend of Mana. Niccolo is an anthropomorphic rabbit who works as a traveling salesman, one who believes that he brings happiness to his customers with his transactions. In reality, Niccolo's avaricious, miserly ways are ones that have seen him swindling quite a number of characters with well-played tricks, some of whom include Kristie, Sotherbee and Teapo. He is said to dislike the Sproutlings and the Flowerlings.
Niccolo returns in Sword of Mana as a traveling salesman yet again, and can occasionally be found wandering through dungeons and the field map, in hopes of securing sales with unsuspecting clients.
Depending on whose storyline is being played, Niccolo is encountered in two locations; in the Hero's storyline, he is seen fishing in a lake where he "catches" the hero after he is thrown off the bridge of Granz Castle; in the Heroine's storyline, he is met in the nearby village of Topple, where he gives the player (regardless of protagonist) Popoi's Notebook, as well as advice about Mana Statues.
Niccolo seems to be a bit selfish, at least in the English version of Sword of Mana. Early on in the Heroine's story, you can overhear him muttering to himself about what to do with the ratty old notebook he found (which is then sold to you as Popoi's Notebook for 10 lucre). The only reason why he saves the Hero is because he thought he caught a massive fish and then remembered something about how being a good Samaritan is a good way to get customers.
