"He's going after me...! I'm his natural prey! You would think that, Class A. This psychological trap was set... before the match even began! This's how I work."
Shihai appears to be quite tall standing near six feet in height. Unlike most characters from the series, his skin is completely black, probably due to his quirk, which contrasts with his white hair. His eyes also appear to be black in color but the sclera remaining white. He is often seen with an unsure, edgy or irritated expression.
His Hero Costume consists of a simple black jumpsuit with light shoes and large wristband on his left arm with three rectangular indentations.
Shihai is a sly, deceitful schemer, who prefers to catch people off guard.
Shihai, very much like Fumikage Tokoyami, appears to enjoy dark concepts and has a penchant for dramatic speech.
Enhanced Speed: When he is merged into the darkness, Shihai shows the ability to move at great speed; grabbing Aoyama and dashing away with him as a prisoner before anyone could react. He was also able to dodge out of the way of Momo's thrown nets by leaping into the dark shadow of a pipe.
