Ichibei is a large and broad individual with a bald head, bushy eyebrows and a long black beard. He wears the standard Shinigami uniform beneath a white, long-sleeved haori decorated with the Royal Guard's emblem. The top of his uniform is open enough to expose his hairy chest. He also wears a large set of red prayer beads around his neck and a pair of single-toothed tengu geta.
Ichibei is an authoritative Shinigami who remains focused on the mission at hand. He speaks in a loud and upfront manner and his face is expressive.
