Component blueprints are rewarded at the end of Orokin Derelict Assassination missions.
Unlike all other Warframe component rewards from boss assassinations, Nekros' components actually have uniform drop chances (33.33% each), leading to only 33 ± 7 expected runs to obtain each part at least once.

- His name is most likely derived from the Greek word "νεκρό" (nekro = dead).
- Nekros is Swedish for Necrosis which is a medical term for the death of most or all of the cells in an organ or tissue due to disease, injury, or failure of the blood supply.
- Nekros is one of the two Warframes that does not have an innate aura polarity, the other being Excalibur.
- Nekros was released on Friday the 13th.
- Nekros is one of the most expensive Warframes to build: not only does his blueprint cost 100,000, he is one of five frames that require three Orokin Cells instead of just one, the others being Mag Prime, Mirage, Limbo and Rhino Prime.
- Nekros is the only Warframe with a base shield stat of 90.
- Equipping a maxed out Redirection mod on a rank 30 Nekros will boost his shields to 666.
- Nekros is the first Warframe whose alternate helmets were purely cosmetic, as opposed to earlier "Arcane" alternate helmets.
- Nekros is one of the few Warframes whose unique animations do not hold a bow with both hands – the other Warframes being Hydroid, Limbo and Mesa. He holds the bow with its arrow only in his left hand. With his Agile animation, he will grab the arrow and twirl it around.
- Nekros' Noble animation set has an almost identical idle animation for all weapons excluding throwing weapons – he simply looks left and right calmly. With throwing weapons, he will twirl and spin one on his right hand. This animation is also used by the Agile set.
- Nekros' unarmed idle animation is identical on both sets – he will perform Shadows of the Dead. This also occurs while he is holding a one-handed secondary weapon.
- Nekros' legs, hands, and feet are far more slender than other Warframes, a trait shared with Oberon.
- Also, both Nekros and Oberon seem to have wider torsos than other Warframes, at least in a limbs to torso ratio.
- Nekros appears to have six fingers, however the last one only has one bone.
- When holstering dual daggers like the Fang and Ether Daggers, Nekros stores them in a cross arrangement, unlike the normal parallel stack that other Warframes do.
