The NiII atom in the title porphyrin complex, [Ni(C36H16Br4N4S4)], is in a square-planar geometry defined by four pyrrole N atoms. There is considerable buckling in the porphyrin ring with the dihedral angles between the N4 donor set and the pyrrole rings being in the range 17.0 (3)–18.8 (3)°. Each of the six-membered chelate rings is twisted about an Ni—N bond and the dihedral angles between diagonally opposite chelate rings are 13.08 (15) and 13.45 (11)°; each pair of rings is orientated in opposite directions. The bromothienyl rings are twisted out of the plane of the central N4 core with dihedral angles in the range 51.7 (2)–74.65 (19)°. Supramolecular chains along [001] are formed through C—H...Br interactions in the crystal packing. Three of the four bromothienyl units are disordered over two coplanar positions of opposite orientation with the major components being in 0.691 (3), 0.738 (3) and 0.929 (9) fractions.
