He is thin and tall, with fluffy dark green hair and brown eyes with a red tint. One of his eyes is artificial, and as a consequence lighter than the other eye.

Spike is very brave and acts quickly despite also being somewhat laid-back. He is kind to the other members of the Bebop, and he is good friends, or becomes good friends with, with all of them.
