|“||I'll be giving a tour... for anyone who's not going to be at the Milo show.||”|
— Bradley Nicholson
Bradley tends to have a negative attitude towards nearly everything, but it's especially evident anytime he's around Milo. He complains about Milo's very presence anytime he's forced to share a space with him, and he often attempts to persuade Melissa to spend time with him instead of hanging out around Milo.
He loves attention and occasionally tries to earn it by sharing his knowledge with the class, telling them random facts and scientific tidbits. He can be rather dramatic when it comes to complaining and has shown himself to be incredibly emotional upon losing something important to him.
It is revealed that Bradley has a somewhat malicious streak, as shown when he deliberately teased a giraffe by offering it carrots and then smirking as he pulled them away again and again.
Bradley is a fair-skinned teenage boy with dark eyes and jet black hair with bangs that parted to one side. He's often seen with an annoyed expression.
He wears a pair of nearly rimless glasses and a gray shirt with thin white plaid lines and white cuffs that end at his elbows. His shirt has two pockets set symmetrically on the front and a downturned collar. Bradley wears a pair of dark gray jeans with visible seams and lighter colored cuffs, and his sneakers are a dark gray, with lighter colored soles and laces. He also owns a burgundy colored bookbag.
In The Undergrounders he lectures the class on the way to the museum and is excited when Milo disappears, as he is ignored whenever Milo is around. He is stuck in a stegosaurus rib cage when Milo does arrive.
In Rooting for the Enemy he tries to sit near Melissa but is detoured by Milo. He and everyone else move away from Milo when he comes to the football game. He bluntly states Milo is the reason their team is losing but is surprised when he caused their team to score by cheering for the opposing team.
In Sunny Side Up he works with Mort and Amanda on their science project. He names his team, Team Melissa in an attempt to get her to join them, much to his teammates' annoyance. He arrogantly proclaims victory when his team's egg only gets a hairline fracture.
In We're Going to the Zoo he is seen tantalizing a giraffe with carrots before a set of monkeys ride off on them, knocking him off the platform truck he was on.
In Some Like it Yacht, he warns the faculty about Milo being on a boat. He later becomes entranced by an ice cream machine he names Carla and becomes distraught over its destruction.
In World Without Milo, he is seen crossing the street to school. In the alternate timeline, he is dressed up as Milo by Elliot, much to his annoyance.

Bradley can't stand Milo and goes out of his way to avoid him as dramatically as possible, often complaining about his proximity and berating him over every mishap. On top of this, Bradley is envious of the attention Milo receives for his condition and has claimed on a field trip that he was having his 'best day ever' until Milo inevitably returned. In spite of this, Bradley can be seen dancing to 'Just Getting Started' during a school dance.
Bradley is friendlier to Melissa then he acts towards any other student, often asking her to sit with him or join his group for projects. His disdain for Milo, however, leads him to avoid spending time around her, too, even though she's open to his friendship. He appears to have a slight crush on her, although he tries to play it cool - such as naming his team 'Team Melissa', only to claim it was named after a different Melissa. He was all too happy to make a bet with her that Milo wouldn't make it to school.
Bradley seems to be on friendly terms with Mort and hangs out with him on more than one occasion. They worked on the same group project alongside Amanda, although Bradley pointed at Mort alongside the other students when mocking them for losing despite being on the same team. He often disregards Mort's beliefs, arguing against him about Pluto being a planet and questioning him over whether he really needs to collect so much rose quartz.
Bradley is classmates with Amanda and the two tend to sit together on occasion. They worked on a group project with Mort and were the most successful team just under Milo's group. When Amanda warned their substitute that she should take a step back because of Murphy's Law, Bradley reinforced her words, saying she should step back all the way to Canada.
Bradley is acquainted with Elliot and seems to be on relatively good terms with him. He asked Elliot to fix a drinking fountain in the middle school and then went on to compliment his wordplay when he declined. In an alternate timeline, Elliot paid Bradley five dollars to dress up like Milo and act out a script. Bradley seemed annoyed at this, but he went along with it anyway.
The moment Bradley met the ice cream machine he became immensely affectionate towards 'her', promptly giving her a name and spending the rest of his time in her presence. He was devastated by her destruction and sat on the floor bawling as Mort hosed the ice cream off of him. This continued on to the end of the trip, where Melissa scolded him for crying and pointed out that there was a guy selling ice cream right on the beach, to which he responded that it wasn't the same.

“Sure you say that now, but then one geyser comes through the floor and suddenly Milo's the center of attention.”
“The one Milo free zone, ruined.”
“Who would have guessed that the game would be ruined. Color me surprised. Hmm. What's the one thing that's different at this game?”
“Yeah! In your face, other people!”
“Too slow! Too slow!”
“Hello, beautiful. I'm Bradley. What's your name? No, no. Let me guess. It's Carla, isn't it? Yes. I'm gonna call you Carla.”
“Oh no. I spilled my marbles all over the ground.”
