Kid Nova was a young hero sidekick, who had enough potential for Gleeman Vox to kidnap him and force him to fight on DreadZone. He was one of the few other contestants who managed to escape the exploding DreadZone Station, and he expressed his gratitude to Ratchet for the rescue. He wears an orange outfit that covers almost all of his body except the bottom part of his face. He had a small jetpack attached to his back.
