TriviaEdit

  • Nyx is the name of the Greek goddess of the night.
    • During development, Nyx originally went by the name of "Jade"
  • Apart from the helmet and gender, Nyx's overall design is almost identical to ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur. This was the result of a scrapped attempt to create alternative genders to the Warframes during the pre-alpha stages of the game.
    • This prototype Nyx was practically identical to Excalibur, with the only major difference being body shape. Prototype-Nyx's base helmet (which was no different from Excalibur's base helmet design-wise) would occasionally reveal itself in earlier builds of the game, replacing the icon of the Menticide Helmet blueprint during extraction.
      MenticideIsSpy

      Screenshot of the Prototype/Menticide icon bug.

    • For a long time, the silhouette Chaos130xDark Chaos projected in front of affected enemies also used prototype-Nyx's helmet, rather than her current base helmet. This was eventually corrected in Update 12.4.
  • Nyx is similar in design to Nadia Sudek's Nemesis armor from Dark Sector.
    • The Nyx Nemesis Skin further reveals the fact that Nyx was most likely based off of Nemesis.
  • Oddly, Nyx's default color scheme has three separate energy colors, one being the deep blue energy seen within her Warframe such as the lights upon her helmet, two being on minor effects within abilities and along her wrists and thirdly the last being for major power effects, a bright orange glow as seen around enemies within MindControl130xDark Mind Control.
    • All of these will be set to one custom color if her energy color is changed.
  • When using MindControl130xDark Mind Control on an enemy, the Tenno script that appears and floats around the enemy says "Obey."
