Milo Murphy's Law Wiki

This is my cousin Nate! He's in denial about the whole 'Murphy's Law' thing.

— Milo introducing Nate

Nate Murphy is the son of Joey and Laura Murphy, nephew of Martin and Brigette Murphy, and a cousin of Milo and Sara Murphy. He is under the impression that Murphy's Law skipped him.

He is voiced by Diedrich Bader.


Very much unlike the other Murphys, Nate has shown himself to have a pessimistic outlook on both life and Murphy's Law in general. This trait is highlighted by his constant denial of his having EHML in spite of all that goes wrong around him. He tends to get annoyed when the others don't agree with this claim.

In spite of this, he seems to care for his family dearly. He is happy to see them all and greets each person with a smile and a hug.

Physical Appearance

Nate is a young man with black hair and dark blue eyes. In "A Christmas Peril", he wore a long brown coat with a green scarf and a pair of black, fingerless gloves.


In "A Christmas Peril", Milo meets Nate at the airport after his flight lands. Before they can leave they find out Nate's luggage is missing, and chase it onto an airplane, which promptly takes off. The two of them parachute down and then go on to pick up the rest of the Murphy Family.
