THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"Ohhohoho—Kghkghkgh! Ehm... Without me, Chizuru Nikaido, the curtains of the idol festival would never rise!"
Chizuru is a 21-year old woman who likes to act like a celebrity, although she's not doing a good job at it. While Chizuru tries her best, she often slips and fails. For example, every time she tries laughing in a high pitch voice she ends up coughing, or when she speaks/acts in a non-celebrity-like manner, she then panics and makes bad excuses ("A crowded train is sure a pain… t…thats what I heard!"). Her goal as an idol is to become a top idol and then hold a lavish party at a karaoke bar in front of the train station. Needless to say, only the more innocent idols like Yayoi and Hinata actually believe that she is a celebrity.
Even though Chizuru likes to act like a celebrity, she doesn't act haughty or act in a “holier than thou“ way. She's actually a generous person who's always kind to everyone and often looks after her fellow idols especially the younger ones. She often gives out high quality breaded cutlet from a restaurant near her house to the other idols. Chizuru is also very diligent, never missing out on a lesson and giving her best effort at work; even if it's only back-dancer work. She also always shows gratitude to everyone who helps her.

Trivia and Fan Culture
- Chizuru's signature laugh is "Ohohoho", which is a laugh tied to noblewomen characters in anime and video games. However, Chizuru often coughs during her laugh.
- Chizuru is still studying at a university according to the dialogue of the LIVE THEATER PERFORMANCE 12 card where she tries to gather votes for herself in the miss campus contest.
- In Japanese, セレブ/celeb carries less of a "famous person" connotation and more of a "rich person/socialite" connotation. That's why Chizuru calls herself a celeb even in early communications, when she's a brand-new idol.
- In her [Celebrity's Mnemonics] card, there are the writings like this:
- (H Helium): Hontou ni
- (Li Lithium): Ricchi
- (Na Natrium): na
- (K Kalium): Kono Watakushi
- (Rb Rubidium): Rubii to
- (Cs Caesium): Kurisutaru o Motomete
- (Fr Francium): Furansu e Shouryokou.
- When combined, it would be "Hontou ni Ricchi na Rubii to Kurisutaru o Motomete, Kono Watakushi Furansu e Shouryokou", which it means "I took a small trip to France in search of really rich rubies and crystals".
- She's nicknamed "Niseleb" by fans, a combination of 偽/にせ (nise, lit. fake) and celebrity.
