Gin zanpakuto is seen in ordinary clothing. He wears no special items other than carrying his Zanpakuto sword. However His appearance is anything but ordinary. He keeps his eyes closed to a slit and rarely opens them up enough to reveal his bright blue eyes. He is tall, petite, and has sharp features. And although he is only early twenty ears old he bears silverfish grey hair which defy his age, but perhaps suits more his maturity than age.

The hilt of his sword, Zanpakuto remains visible from under the robe around as it sticks out from around the waist.
Gin zanpakuto is a shadow character. He carries a mocking smile on his face which he rarely wipes off and is creepy and unsettling for others. His heavy use of sarcasm and mocking politeness makes it very difficult to discern his true intentions. This makes him a very difficult man to read. Even before he betrayed soul society as a traitor, many found his demeanor unsettling and found it hard to trust him. He would go on toying with people’s sentiments and emotions for amusement.
