"Howdy! I'm NOGLA! NOGLA the POTATO!"
– Nogla upon meeting the player
"You know what the fuck going on here don't ya. You just want to see me suffer you piece of shit."
– Nogla after the player dodge his "friendly seeds"
Daith De Nogla (Nogla for short) is a living potato who is the first character the the protagonist encounters in Vanosstale, playing the role of Flowey the Flower as the Empty One role. He's your best friend, and has a knack for funny and derpy faces. His main philosophy is "FUCK or GET FUCKED."
Initially, Nogla operates under a façade of friendliness and politeness. He often greets the protagonist with southern jargon, such as "Howdy!", calls himself "your best friend", and, like his father, appends polite words such as "gosh" and "golly" to the ends of his sentences. Whenever he drops this guise of friendliness, he often calls the protagonist an "asshole".
Nogla has a malevolent and cruel disposition, berating the protagonist for not following his "kill or be killed" philosophy (or in his words, Fuck or Get Fucked which is the same as Kill or be Killed to avoid confusion). Despite this, he also criticizes the protagonist at the end of the Ruins if they killed any monster. He is manipulative, devious, a cunning planner, and subtle if the circumstances require it. He retains his memories between SAVEs because he was once able to SAVE. He is also shown to be extremely cowardly, as he kills his former father to appease the protagonist in a vain attempt to save his own life in the Genocide Route's conclusion. He is also not the brightest as he says weird things and makes weird noises, even more during his Omega Zoidberg Form.
Nogla usually appears as a sentient, grinning, brown potato, with a very derpy face and spots (or eyes), and can send out some short light-green stems for arms. Nogla can contort his face into a variety of expressions (even switching his eyes from white/black to black/white) and mimic the faces and voices of other characters. He mimics Mini Ladd and Wildcat in some situations, as well as Lui Calibre's face at the end of the Genocide Route. He also mimics the protagonist's face before the Neutral Route's final battle.
