— Nevel's catchphrase

Nevel Amadeus Papperman is the owner of Nevelocity.com, a web critic and one of the main villains in the iCarly series. He first appeared in iNevel.


Nevel is most notable for his successful review website, Nevelocity.com, which has millions of hits from Internet users across the globe. A few students at Carly's school claim that a web series is not cool if it doesn't receive a good review from his site (their primary reason for not watching iCarly).

His lifelong dream is to own his very own haberdashery, which, according to him, is a men's retail store that sells men's accessories such as wallets, hats, buttons, belts, ribbons, and zippers, and gets annoyed whenever people ask him what it is.

"You will rue this day!"

In iNevel, the 6th episode of season 1, Carly and Spencer go to his house in order to have an interview for iCarly. They are caught off-guard when discovering that Nevel, the creator and manager of a nationwide pundit website, is actually younger than Carly. After Spencer leaves to have tea with Nevel's mother, Carly shakily tries to start the interview, but it's made clear that Nevel has different ideas. He attempts to flirt with Carly (while complimenting himself), and finally steals a kiss, much to her disgust and anger. Furious at Carly's rejection (and because she threw tapenade in his face), Nevel swears revenge on Carly and her website, shouting how she would, "Rue the day!", and gives the iCarly website a horrible review. They attempt to make him tell the truth by inviting him over, and sending "Germy" (Jeremy) on him but he easily tricks Jeremy into letting him go by falsely offering him $10. After Sam and Freddie are ready to give up, Carly remembers that Nevel, though crafty and intelligent, is still only an 11-year-old, and they tell Ms. Papperman what he did. Ultimately, he is forced by his disappointed mother to give iCarly an honest (good) review.

As a girl...

The young webshow critic returned to get revenge on Carly, Sam and Freddie in the iRue the Day, the 11th episode of season 1, when he hacked into the iCarly website and made everything go haywire. The iCarly team threaten to tell on Nevel again, only for him to tell them that his mother is leaving for a two-month cruise and that his "hopelessly confused" grandmother is babysitting, thus he cannot be tattled on and punished. Spencer, who saved the life of Tom Higgenson of The Plain White T's, managed to book them on iCarly, so Carly, Sam and Freddie tried to hack into Nevelocity, but Nevel, having prepared for this, used their network connection scheme to crash their website, then mocked them again, and created his own cruel parody of iCarly, where he dressed up as Carly and started singing a song insulting the webcast to the tune of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm". Thankfully, Carly called in Colonel Morgan (someone who works with Carly's dad)'s squad, who raided his house and threatened to arrest him. When Nevel begged for mercy, Carly decided not to press charges against him if he apologized and called himself a weenie.

Nevel-Igive away a car.jpg

In iGive Away a Car, the 9th episode of the 2nd season, Nevel hires a pawn posing as Jeffery Flanken, the son of a car dealer, to run a fake contest on iCarly to win a free car. Eventually, Nevel wins the contest and tells them they need to give him the car or else the iCarly website will be shut down for fraud. Sam and Freddie later find out that the new car doesn't exist, and all three of the iCarly members realize that they had been duped by Nevel into doing the contest after much harassment from then. After trying to give Nevel a junker car, they also find out that the car won't be considered "new" unless it drives at an appropriate speed. They use Spencer's "Galaxy Wars spaceship" prop (which, much to Spencer’s displeasure, was an imitation with multiple discrepancies between the real props) as the car. Nevel tries to drive it, hoping to find that the car would fall short of any parameters, but accidentally crashes it into a flower shop in the process. Due the car driving at an appropriate speed, the iCarly crew are allowed to keep their web show. Nevel had most likely faced legal trouble as a result of the accident, and it is unknown if the free car he had “won” had been totaled beyond use.

He also appears in iWant My Website Back, the 13th episode of season 2, where he tricks Mandy Valdez into selling him the iCarly website, and again, he creates a mocking version of iCarly using puppets. When confronted, he refuses to give the website back unless Carly willingly kisses him on the lips, which she agrees to. They meet behind the Bushwell Plaza and Nevel reveals he has two goons hired to make sure she doesn't try anything funny. Carly tricks Nevel into signing the website rights back to her and escapes via a rope back to her apartment. Nevel threatens that they'll rue the day (again) and gets guacamole spilled on him from above.


In the movie IFight Shelby Marx, the 21st episode of season 2, after Carly accidentally knocks Shelby Marx's grandmother down, Nevel tricks Shelby into believing that Carly did it on purpose using his technical knowledge. At the fight, the iCarly crew confronts Nevel, who says he's only here to watch Carly bleed and cry. After the fight, it is revealed to Shelby that Nevel lied. Freddie drags Nevel into the arena and locks the cage, leaving Nevel to admit the truth to Carly, Sam and Shelby. As punishment, the three girls beat him up.

Nevel feeding his porcupine!

Nevel is not seen or mentioned throughout Season 3, but appeared in a few videos on iCarly.com during the production of Season 3.

He was also mentioned in iGet Pranky, the 3rd episode in season 4.

Nevel tied up in iPity the Nevel

In the 8th episode of season 4, iPity The Nevel, a video of him yelling at a little girl and breaking her lollipop in revenge for breaking his pickle jar is put on the internet, shattering his reputation. Now that Nevel has hit rock bottom he goes to the iCarly crew asking for a chance for redemption; though they are reluctant, they try to help him get back on his feet (they were convinced when Nevel drank from Sam's sweaty shoe filled with Wahoo Punch), after first hog-tying him up as a rodeo cowboy does to a bull. But after Nevel finally saves his reputation he completely blows it when a paraplegic man bumps into him, and Nevel has yet another outburst which is also filmed.

Nevel with his henchmen Demetri and Evon in iHalfoween

Nevel returned in iHalfoween, where he tried to get his revenge on the iCarlys for not helping him after the second incident with the man in the wheelchair. He came to the party dressed as a Purple Robot, first


giving the iCarlys candy that made their voices really deep, and then locking Freddie in the Purple Robot suit to trick everyone into thinking the Purple Robot was him (which resulted in Freddie landing in the Jerk Basket 20 times until the iCarlys realized their error). Carly pretended to apologize, but then had Nevel put in the Jerk Basket as payback for tricking them into torturing Freddie.

Nevel in iCarly (2021) Episode 5, "iRobot Wedding"

Nevel returns in the revival in episode 5, IRobot Wedding where he planned a fake wedding with a young woman named Prunella Pitz just to get Carly to marry him. But what ended up happening was Prunella having fallen in love with him and Nevel has returned those feelings back so they decided to get married for real.

Physical Appearance

Nevel is short and blonde.

In iRobot Wedding, Nevel wears a silver suit and a robotic arm to his robot-themed wedding. Underneath, he wears a white dress shirt with a black bow tie. His hair was sleeked back. He had some stickers on his face and a mustache.


He is shown to be extremely intelligent and cultured (though extremely old-fashioned), but an egotistical and arrogant boy who dislikes just about everyone except himself. He has a crush on Carly and has tried more than once (unsuccessfully) to get Carly to kiss him. He continually says that she will "Rue the day", or seriously regret it, whenever Carly, Sam, and Freddie outsmart and defeat him, but from Carly doing things like dropping guacamole on him, pushing tapenade in his face when he unceremoniously kisses her, and cheering when the video of him yelling at the little girl goes viral, it's clear that she understandably despises Nevel so much that she will never regret hurting him. In the alternate reality in iChristmas, he was Carly's boyfriend. He's also infamous for his snobbish and pompous voice.

Nevel possesses a tendency to boast and glorify himself and his achievements and has a well-developed ego. Examples of his snobbish behavior include his mysophobia (hatred of filth and germs) and his overuse of outdated words such as "banter" (conversation), "rue" (extreme regret), and "shan't" (contraction for shall not).


Prunella Pitz

(Unknown-present; Wife) Nevel and Prunella first met when playing Robot Uprising and became friends. Their relationship was purely platonic and together, they made an elaborate plan to trick Carly into marrying Nevel. However, during the process of planning the wedding, Prunella falls for Nevel. On the day of the wedding, she professes her feelings for him by turning on her LED belt, which says "I really do love Nevel." The two end up getting married.


  • In iNevel, Nevel's age was given to be around 11, but in iFight Shelby Marx, Shelby Marx describes him as being about the age of herself and the iCarly cast. iFight Shelby Marx takes place nearly two years after iNevel, as Nevel may have been turning 13 while the iCarly crew were turning 15.
  • In iRue the Day, Nevel states that he isn't scared of Sam, but in iFight Shelby Marx, he admits that he is scared of her; it's likely that he only said it in the former episode because she wasn't there in person.
  • Nevel appeared in 8 episodes.
  • Nevel made a return in the Sam & Cat special, "#SuperPsycho" as he is now in a mental hospital that his mother put him due to a virus he has. He later breaks out and meets up with Gibby for dinner.
  • Nevel is banned from Fooders.
  • In Nickelodeon UK's subtitles for iChristmas, iGive Away a Car and iFight Shelby Marx — Part 2, Nevel's name is misspelt as Neville.[5]
  • Nevel has a framed x-ray of his brain.[6]
  • Nevel appears in the iCarly revival series in episode 5.
