John Cleese as Nearly Headless Nick.

Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington (known as Nearly Headless Nick) is a Gryffindor House ghost from the Harry Potter franchise.


When he was executed on Halloween 1492, the axe was blunt as Nick met his demise. Now as a ghost, he came back from the dead to haunt Hogwarts. He is somehow friendly towards humans and other ghosts. On Halloween 1992, he had his own 150th deathday party, a party dedicated to an anniversary of a ghost's death.

See the article on Nearly Headless Nick on Fandom's HarryPotter wiki.

Oh no! This Halloween article has serious gaps or missing content for the topic. Did the monsters take it? How scary! Can you help fix it? You go that way, and I'll go this way...
