Nex is Not Like Riven — He’s Like Brandon

“Nex is like Riven.”

“He’s a copy of Riven.”

“He’s a less-interesting, less-developed, badly written Riven!”

I’ll say it again: if you need that many qualifiers, the argument is already dead. As it should be because Nex isn’t any kind of Riven. Also, Riven’s not a character type.

“The First Color of the Universe” (Winx season 7, episode 4): Brandon and Nex strike mirrored poses

You read the title: Nex is more like Brandon than Riven. But before you call Nex a copy of Brandon instead, stick around for the part about how they’re different. First, we’ll get their similarities out of the way.

How Nex and Brandon Are Alike

Brandon’s profile from Winx season two and three said:

  • He’s vain. (“Of course, I am quite vain.”)
  • His “favorite hobby” is “going out with girls”, and he’s “naturally gifted” at it.

What about Nex’s description from Winx season six? It said he:

So both Nex and Brandon have big egos and think they’re irresistible to women. By the way, if any of the Winx’s boyfriends deserves to be called a womanizer, it’s Brandon. Schmoozing girls was part of his character for four seasons. Yet Nex gets a lot more flak from the fandom for his flirting, even though he only did it once and hasn’t done it since he met Aisha. He’s not a womanizer, but the fandom still says he is. Why? ?‍♀️

Anyway, back to Nex and Brandon’s egos. Vanity and arrogance are related to each other, but they’re not exactly the same. As I’ll talk about in the “how they’re different” section, each guy has a different theme to his character.

Winx Club: Guida al Mondo Magico

Brandon’s Guide to the Magical World profile

Here’s another source of similarities: the book Winx Club: Guida al Mondo Magico (Guide to the Magical World). Brandon’s profile is longer than Nex’s, but none of the info is new. It says Brandon:

Nex’s profile says he’s “good in combat” (bravo in combattimento), so we may have a match there. But Brandon’s line might mean he’s physically strong since his season two profile said he has “a powerful body”. Either way, both guys are handy on the battlefield.

If we look at other Winx media, we see more parallels between them:

Again, these might have slightly different implications:

  • Brandon is goofy, while Nex likes to tease people (though Brandon does, too, sometimes).
  • “Vitality” could mean “spirit” or “enthusiasm” rather than literal energy. (Not that Nex doesn’t have that, too.)
  • The Italian word “quello” (what) is singular, which means Brandon brags about one specific thing he does. What is it? How about being a Specialist? If memory serves me, he’s bragged about that a lot throughout the series, while Nex brags about his abilities. (More about that later.)

Regardless, Nex and Brandon are both playful, energetic, and boastful.

Here are a couple more ways they’re alike.

1. They’re both extroverts.

What if I told you Nex and Riven don’t have the same personality? Disagree? Well, I can prove it.

Riven is a loner. His character descriptions say so, and we’ve seen it throughout the series. He’s not comfortable around people, and he likes to work alone if he can.

But Nex is an extrovert (estroverso). Extroverts get their energy from social interaction, so being alone would literally tire him out. He also prefers to work on a team. (We’ll talk about that later.)

I think the Winx fandom ignores this whenever they compare Nex to Riven, but these aren’t minor differences. Extroversion affects how you process the world.

Something I brought up in Riven’s “Nex vs. Riven” post is that he often wrestles with negative emotions: sadness, anger, hatred, betrayal, jealousy, etc. Of course, extroverts like Nex have internal struggles, too, but they focus their attention outward instead of on their inner lives. One way they do this is by talking through their feelings with others, whereas loners like Riven bottle things up.

But I digress. Read my posts for more about Nex and Riven’s differences.

Back to the point. Nex is more like Brandon because they’re both extroverts. They love hanging out with other people, they love being the center of the attention, they’re not afraid to chat up strangers (especially females), and they’re usually upbeat.

As a bonus (especially for Aisha and Stella), they also both have Secure attachment styles. What’s an attachment style? Read more here.

2. They’re both athletic types.

Brandon’s not an athlete, per se, but he used to keep his “powerful body” in shape. We saw him lift weights and practice martial arts in his dorm room in the early seasons. And it paid off. He looked slightly more muscular than the other Specialists.

As for Nex, he is an athlete, so he stays fit through sports. He used to be the slimmest guy in the group. You can really tell in this season seven screenshot:

Geez! Was he competing with the Winx?

Of course, now all the guys have the figures of five-year-olds, thanks to the season eight redesign. But my point is Nex and Brandon’s physiques used to matter. Their character descriptions even mentioned them. Nex’s called him “slim and athletic-looking” (dall’aspetto snello e atletico), which is why he didn’t have the default Specialist body type.

Nex and Brandon’s bods also had something to do with what I hinted at earlier: their character themes. We’ve done with the similarity section, so no more vagueness. Here we go!

How Nex and Brandon are Different

Remember Tecna and Timmy’s only fight back in Winx season two? She called him a coward when he let the Trix steal the Codex from Redfountain, but she apologized several episodes later. “I judged you by surface data and not by who you are,” she said.

Well, the Winx fandom does that with Nex and Riven, too. “They’ve got the same hairstyle.” (Really?) “They both tease people. They’re both competitive. So Nex is a copy of Riven.”

These superficial comparisons ignore the core of each character. It’s like I said in Riven’s “Nex vs. Riven” post: he and Nex are the same only if you take his traits and behavior out of context.

So let’s bring the context back in for Nex and Brandon, too. We’ll start with — drumroll, please — their character themes. Brandon’s primary flaw is vanity, and Nex’s is arrogance. For the sake of this post:

  • Vanity is overvaluing your appearance. That’s why we call those dresser-mirror combos in our bedrooms vanities. What a shock.
  • Arrogance is overvaluing your skills. It’s about your public image, not your looks.

So Brandon’s theme is beauty, and Nex’s is ability.

Beauty: “Nature treated me well…”

One of the first things Brandon said in his season two profile was:

…nature treated me well and gave me a powerful body and a really handsome face!

He later said, “Of course I am quite vain.” Good for you, Brandon. Admitting your problem is the first step to overcoming it. ?

The point: he cares a lot about his looks. I mentioned how he used to lift weights in his dorm. Sure, it kept him in shape, but let’s face it: he probably wanted to bulk up to impress girls.

“Race Against Time” (Winx season 2, episode 11): Brandon comments on Timmy’s clothes
“Race Against Time” (Winx season 2, episode 11): Brandon comments on Timmy’s clothes

He also pays attention to how other people look. When he compliments girls, for example, it’s usually their appearance:

  • (To Aisha, Winx season 2) “You can say that again, cutie.”
  • (To Amentia, Winx season 2) “It’s good to see you’re looking so elegant, Your Majesty!”
  • (To Stella, Winx season 3, 5, and 8) “Hey, gorgeous!” “You look beautiful, Stella!” “Beautiful as always, Stella!”

Also, like Stella, he gives unsolicited fashion advice sometimes. At least twice in Winx Club, he’s tried to makeover Timmy. The first time, in “Race Against Time” (Winx season 2, episode 11), Timmy turned him down:

TIMMY: So you think all’s not lost, and I might still impress Tecna?
BRANDON: Sure, and while you’re at it, some nicer clothes would really give you an edge, you know.
TIMMY: Uh, no, thanks. I kinda like how I dress.
BRANDON: You should try puffing up your hair a bit. Stella gave me this stuff. Works like magic!
TIMMY: No, really, it’s okay.
BRANDON: How ‘bout contacts?
TIMMY: Arrgh, never mind!

The second time, in “A Perfect Date” (Winx season 5, episode 21), Timmy gave in…reluctantly:

TIMMY: Guys, I’m telling you this isn’t a good idea. I’m not a date kind of guy.
HELIA: Man up. It’s going to work.
BRANDON: And that outfit makes you look totally hip!
TIMMY: Maybe on you, these clothes would look cool. On me, they just look…
RIVEN: Silly?
HELIA: Riven!
RIVEN: Hey! I’m just sayin’.

He’s full of it, Timmy. You looked handsome!

Finally, Brandon’s beauty almost got him married off to a Trog! In “Princess Amentia” (Winx season 2, episode 4), the titular princess fell in love with that “really handsome face” of his. And because his vanity got the best of him, he couldn’t help soaking up the compliments.

AMENTIA: *Gasp* I can’t believe it! Such perfectly harmonious features!
BRANDON: Well, with all due modesty…!
AMENTIA: Your face is absolutely perfect!
BRANDON: Princess, you’re making me blush, but good eye!
SPONTUS: No! Oh, please, princess! Nooooo!
AMENTIA: Brandon, you shall become my husband!

Don’t worry, Brandon. She wouldn’t wanna marry you now. ?

Ability: “I’ll give these guys a run for their money!”

When Nex strutted up to the Winx in “The Flying School” (Winx season 6, episode 3), the fandom honed in on his “Hey, ladies!” greeting. But his next line told us what we really needed know about him:

When it’s my turn, I’ll give these guys a run for their money!

So Brandon thinks his looks make him a dream guy, but Nex thinks it’s his skills.

Nex’s focus on ability took a few forms. Form #1 was his competitiveness. To steal a song lyric from a franchise I’m sure you’ve never heard of, Nex wants to be the best like no one ever was. ? Both his character description and his Guida al Mondo Magico profile said so:

If you think about it, this makes sense for his character. He’s an athlete, so sports and competition are his world. Athletes always aim for the top, right? When they’re not trying to beat someone else, they’re trying to beat their personal best.

Nex’s debut was all about competition. The best example, of course, was the stupid love triangle, which Rainbow shoved him in minutes after he introduced himself. But he had less annoying contests with other characters, including Aisha. One example was in “Broken Dreams” (Winx season 6, episode 11), when he challenged her to a roller blade race:

NEX: Let’s see if you can pass me!
AISHA: Oh, a challenge, huh? You sure about this? Then let’s do this the right way!

I think by this point, Nex understood her personality — she’s competitive, too — so he thought challenging her would cheer her up after her spat with Stella. Yes, this wouldn’t make sense for any other couple, but they’re both athletes, so they speak that language.

Fast forward to “Mystery of Calavera” (Winx season 6, episode 16) when the Winx and Specialists were looking for the Fantasy Emerald. Nex turned the windsurfing ride to Bajo Mundo Cave into a race, and even timid Timmy got into it.

Another form of Nex’s fixation on ability is how he always wants to prove himself, especially when people doubt him. That’s why he shows off. But remember what I said in his “Nex vs. Riven” post? He does it because he wants people to like him. (It’s an Enneagram Type 3 thing.)

But it’s not always for his own glory. For example, in comic #131, “La Prova di Nex” (Nex’s Test), Aisha’s father didn’t think he could protect her. So when the king proposed the titular test, Nex gladly accepted it. Aisha tried to stop him, but he explained he wanted her father to trust him.

AISHA: We love each other! That’s all that matters!
NEX: I know… but I want to show King Teredor that I’m willing to do anything for you!
NEX: It’s the only way I can earn his trust!

(NOTE: I used my translation. If you follow my blog, you know I disagree with how Winx Club Comics translated this scene.)

How Their Winx Girlfriends Played Into Their Themes

Nex and Brandon’s character themes affect their relationships, too. On the Winx Club website during season six, Stella said her ideal guy was “beautiful and full of muscles…like Brandon!” And like I said, he often tells her she’s beautiful.

But beauty also played a major role in their relationship development in Winx season three.

Stella and Brandon: Outer and Inner Beauty

Remember the arc where Stella got turned into a monster? She was afraid of Brandon seeing her mutated form, so Flora cast a spell on him so he’d only see Stella’s inner beauty.

But later, in “The Mirror of Truth” (Winx season 3, episode 4), Brandon revealed he could see monster Stella the whole time, and it didn’t change his feelings for her:

BRANDON: Stella, maybe this isn’t the best time to tell you, but I can see what you look like.
STELLA: But…but how is that possible?
BRANDON: I don’t know. The spell Flora cast on me never worked.
STELLA: And you…even though I look like this, you didn’t run away?
BRANDON: What? Me, run away from a beautiful person with a great big heart and a wonderful soul?

So even though Brandon is vain, he’s not shallow. He can love someone for who they are, not just what they look like.

Aisha and Nex: Courage and Teamwork

In the beginning, Aisha and Nex’s relationship revolved around sports and competition. But Nex didn’t fall in love with her because she’s “amazing at a lot of things” (*cough* Roy *cough*). Nex fell in love with her strong personality.

Soon, he stopped wanting to win against her and wanted to win with her. The first sign of this shift was in “Mystery of Calavera”, when he teamed up with her in the windsurfing race:

NEX: C’mon, let’s be the first ones there!
AISHA: Alright, let’s do it!

But their most notable “Power Couple Team Up” in season six was in “Legendary Duel” (Winx season 6, episode 24) when they took on Siobhan the Water Champion of Alfea. Even though they didn’t beat her, they felt proud of how well they worked together.

Aisha hatched a plan to free the Pixies from the Legendarium World, but Icy tried to stop her from leaving Alfea. That’s when Nex soared into action. He didn’t flinch at the witch’s ice bolt; instead, he hit it back at her, knocking her out of their way. It impressed the Fairy of Waves.

AISHA: Nex, you were so brave out there!
NEX: What? Did you expect anything less? Good luck in there!

That’s right. Aisha didn’t fall in love with Nex for his abilities, either. She fell in love with his courage. I guess we should have known. After all, her season six profile said her ideal guy is “loyal and courageous”.

I Can See Your Voice

Voice is another important part of characterization. Coincidentally, Nex and Brandon had the same voice actor in Winx season six: Adam Gregory. That means he had to create a distinct voice for each guy that fit their personalities, so he needed to understand what made them different.

Listen to these four clips from “Mystery of Calavera” (Winx season 6, episode 15). In each one, Nex and Brandon speak one after another. Can you tell who’s talking in what order?

Here’s Clip #1.

Whoa! We’re already on hard mode! I’ll admit: I’d get them confused if I didn’t know the show.

Clip #2 might be easier. The first voice is Timmy’s, so ignore him.

Here’s Clip #3. The voice order is obvious in this one because…well, you’ll see.

And here’s Clip #4. This time, the first voice is Sky’s.

Let’s see how you did. Here’s the speaking orders:

  1. Brandon, Nex
  2. Timmy, Brandon, Nex
  3. Nex, Brandon
  4. Sky, Nex, Brandon

Could you tell who was who? What were some of the differences in their voices, and what impression do you get from them?

What I noticed was Nex’s voice was raspier, feistier, and more masculine. He also sounded more like a teenager (older teens, though). Brandon’s voice was smoother and, while still masculine, not as stereotypical. He also sounded more mature.

So did Adam Gregory do a good job? Also, Nex and Brandon are voiced by Marc Thompson and Jake Paque, respectively, now. How do their voices compare to these?


If you read this whole post, thanks a lot! If not, that’s okay. I’m not mad. From now on, I’ll add “TL;DR” links to my posts because I know I have too much to say sometimes.

Here’s the summary. Nex and Riven may have some similarities, but Nex is more like Brandon. They’re both energetic extroverts who love to joke around, keep themselves fit through sports and exercise, and think all the ladies love them.

Does that mean they’re the same? No. Rainbow distinguishes them from each other by focusing on different themes. Brandon’s is beauty, and his flaw is vanity. Nex’s theme is ability, and his flaw is arrogance.

But both guys are overcoming their flaws with the help of their Winx girlfriends: Aisha and Stella. Coincidentally, both girls are princesses, which means Nex and Brandon will both marry into royalty. I think they’re on their right path to becoming men who are worthy to sit beside these queens.

Thank you for all these analysis. I don’t watch Winx anymore since the whole fiasco about how people went insane about Enchantix Redesign, but despite I wasn’t a Nex fan, it infuriated me how people threw crap at AishaxNex and Nex’s character. I don’t even understand why people need proof that Nex is not Riven when ANYONE can see that Nex was open to others and Aisha while Riven has a HUUUGE problem with talking, and treating poor Musa properly and not treating everything like a competition for at least ONCE.
Seriously, why did the Winx fandom spit on Nex when he did NOTHING wrong?! Rainbow obviously wrote him better than Nabu (who literally had ZERO flaws and Riven SUDDENLY opened himself for him in S3 WaterStars arc which qualifies him as a Mary Sue. Oh yeah, people LITERALLY spitting on Bloom for being a Mary Sue nowadays but Nabu is okay… hmmm… anyways, thank you so much! At least someone who doesn’t overlook obvious facts.
(Sorry if this was offtopic but I REALLY needed to say this, this still flabbergasts me to this day)

I am happy you mentioned Bloom’s story having many plotholes.
But i also always have felt like it was dragged out, too long.
Also it didn’t feel like it was planned out that good.
Sometimes it would feel like a total mess.

Well, last year they were SO sure Season 8 was the last Season. It just sounds skechy. Especially because the date is 2021 – 2022. Which doesn’t seem that likely to me. And now they are suddenly making it 52 episodes? ? 16 years into the franchise.

*sigh* the more Rainbow keeps changing, the more i see the show declining (If this is true). I do not wanna sound negative, change isn’t a bad thing, but sometimes trying to repair something too much is only going to destroy it further. I already make a blog post about that some weeks ago, i don’t think Winx needs another Season.

“nostalgia always wins” AND THAT’S BAD in this case. Awful.
I mean, I am nostalgic for things too (except despite I loved Winx, seasons 1,2 and 4 and Season 2’s mediocre Charmix form ARE NOT the things I would be nostalgic to) but when nostalgia normalizes bad morals (Riven),bad writing at times (I CAN’T STAND AishaxNabu “perfectness” and relationship dramas in Season 4!) plotholes (can people stop blaming Nickelodeon for plotholes when actually wordbuilding problems in Winx were SINCE THE BEGGINING), well… something is just wrong. I remember when I saw Winx for the first time back in 2007, despite people did not care about that, Riven’s acts in S1E08 screamed “wrong” to me. (I’m glad I sticked with Brandon and Timmy as my favourites)
Back to the topic about Aishaxnex, what flabbergasts me is that people want Aisha to mourn Nabu as single forever. Get it? They want her TO BE SAD/DEPRESSED FOREVER AND SUFFER MENTALLY FOR NO REASON. Disgusting. I know Aisha is just a fictional character but I can’t stand it and don’t want it. Imagine if she was a real person… terrifying, people are taking it TOO far, to say at least. I’m glad you analyze things with fresh eyes.

September 6, 2020 7:32 pm

I always thought Adam Gregory did a good job distinguishing Brandon and Nex from each other. I think he’s also just generally a good actor – he can handle both of their more dynamic character moments. Seriously, his voice acting for Nex at the end of 6×24 is SO GOOD. You can hear the happiness and relief and even the giddy excitement in his voice, it’s precious.

However, I do have to acknowledge nostalgia bias – the Nick dub was how I was introduced to Winx, so I usually default to it when asked for my favorite Winx voices. To be fair, sometimes Gregory’s Nex comes off less naturally raspy and more like he just really needs some water. ? However, I still think he did a really good job for the most part.

Not gonna lie – when I first heard Nex’s s7 voice, I lowkey hated it. He sounded like a generic meathead, which actually kinda works since he is an athlete. But when I first heard it, I was not a fan.

I changed my mind after hearing Marc Thompson some more – specifically the part where Nex spaces out on his and Aisha’s date. He’s also good in his scenes with Squonk, where he’s trying to figure out how to be a “dad” to this centuries-old magic creature. And he was a lot better in the Sirenix arc than I was expecting – I underestimated his ability to do more serious scenes.

Overall, I still prefer Gregory’s voice for him, because I think the raspiness adds a level of maturity while still showing his less mature sides. It also makes his voice more unique from the rest of the cast’s. However, I do still like Thompson’s take on the character quite a bit.

September 6, 2020 11:22 pm

I didn’t listen to the audio. So, what I am about to say boils down to personal opinion. When it comes to voices among the Specialist, Brandon’s voice strikes to me as more masculine than Nex. It’s not just only Nex, I guess his voice seemed to be a lot more baritone than the other Specialist.

Actually, I heard it.

The current dub actually. I think that in the current dub, the voice actors did a better job differentiating the voices of their characters.

The fandom should understand that
just because Nex has SOME similarities with Riven, doesn’t make him “like Riven”. There’s a difference.

What I can see bits of Riven in Aisha like in terms of there competition and sports, and bits of his Nex, they need to win at everything, and their insecurities, and bits of him in his girlfriend Musa, their inability to communicate but Musa does better at him most of time anyways, and he and Bloom are both Hot-headed like in Day of The Rose when Bloom Poured A Vase of Roses over his head get me everytime, but how he like Flora, other that they close relationship (although very different dynamic) with Helia?

I agree with the part where an episodic show allow more slice-to-life moment and character development. Pretty Cure is an example of an episodic show being executed well. If they are going to change WinX club into an episodic show, let’s hope they include slice of life moments and character development. (This show has seriously ran out of plots till the point that they oversell Bloom’s story way too much till the point that we still don’t know the backstory of some of the WinX especially Tecna and Flora.)

I think the part where slice of life moment could lead to character development would apply more to Flora. Tecna and Musa to a certain extent. We already saw how Tecna began to tap into her emotional side. As for Musa, we saw how she started standing up towards Riven for his abusive behavior. (Then again, she needs her own character development without involving another character.)

As for Flora, we still don’t know anything about her flaws. She seemed to be the only girl who doesn’t seem to have a flaw. You could say she is shy but how is her shyness being displayed in the show? Is it in terms of being less likely to take risks? You could say she is insecure but what is she insecure about? Her powers? Not being to help the group in battles? We don’t know. Or is it that she needs to learn that voicing out opinions is better than keeping it to yourself just to avoid conflict?

A little sidenote: the biker outfits is Timmy’s idea? Also, he also knew what they like in terms of fashion and it was his idea to ask the pixies for help? That is interesting. I thought the bikers outfits was requested by Stella.

Well, I just hope that they do the show justice when they convert the show into an episodic show.

If they do go more slice of life i really want to see them actually show us some things we don’t often see. Also maybe just maybe with slice of life we could (but it’s a big maybe) see a Roxy episode that wasn’t about her being a fairy park ranger. I would actually like to see her finally get a pixie, but unlike most fans, i don’t think Zing is for her. Zing’s kinda…Zingy for lack of a better word…i don’t think Roxy could handle that all week. Though i do think she might have one of the pop pixie characters. Morpho, Martino or Giga. Morpho would probably work the best with the similar yet different thing the way digit was with Tecna. Also if they wanted to use distinctive looks for the boy pixies, they can always have them in their pop pixie state (or pixie Enchantix as the fandom calls it)

Yikes. I guess that everyone, Rainbow included feels that Winx isn’t Winx without Riven. Ah no. As for the specialists, if i had to say who could carry the show the best out of them since Rainbow doesn’t want to give them their own show, it would be Timmy, he’s the only one who can actually communicate with the girls to an extent, including knowing what they liked in terms of fashion (because it was his idea to make those biker outfits and get pixie assistance.) that is of course if we were not clamped to a princess+Flora or Musa season.

For season 9? Maybe the 52 13 minutes could actually help if they split adventures in one half and slice of life in another? Also the slice of life could allow character development for Musa, Tecna and Flora.

@ Secrets, the biker outfits were a surprise gift as they were hand made, not magically ready for wear. The pixies aided the Specialists with sizes…and i think it was either Timmy or Brandon who said something about “doing the opposite of what you think” to try to make something nice, and that wasn’t exactly a dig.

January 4, 2021 11:18 am

[…] But cocky + plays rough = Riven? Isn’t that a low threshold to be considered a copy of another character? Are those Riven’s defining traits in the first place? I wouldn’t say he “played rough” in this episode. It was a standard monster fight. And even the comment admits that Brandon is cocky, too: […]
