Neil appears to be the more energetic and competitive of the two, while Ella seems to be calmer and open-minded. He's very big on leveling up, and like his friend and rival Buzz, hopes one day hopes to become an ultimate golfer. However, he can sometimes be lazy and a bit too reckless.
He also appears as a sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Neil bears a design reminiscent to Kid's Mario Golf design, Alex from Mario Tennis, and Plum. He has flat, brown hair flattened by a blue baseball cap, flipped backwards. His eyes are a hazel brown. He wears a yellow vest over a blue T-shirt, and blue shorts. His shoes are blue and white, and his golfing glove is white. His golfing bag is blue, and is described as muddy and dirty when examined.
