Kuguri has light wild spiked up hair that he claims to be bedhead and unintentional. His eyes are down-turned and droopy, framed by slightly thick dark eyebrows. He usually holds a bored or disinterested expression.
Kuguri is shown to be an under-active and lethargic individual difficult to get fired up. His teammates also claim that he is nearly impossible to read. The Nohebi coach tends to dislike this standoffish behavior Kuguri has towards matches and it is explained that Kuguri's disinterest and emotionless state is one of the reasons why he isn't a Nohebi regular despite the immense potential and talent he holds. However, at the end of the Nohebi vs Nekoma match, he is shown to cry deeply out of frustration for Nohebi's loss.
