Kikuchihara is a young boy with messy, shoulder-length brown hair. He has black, slit irises.
In his Trigger Mode, like the rest of his Unit, he wears a navy blue shirt and a black shrug jacket and a cross running through the front of his shirt (including the jacket), and black boot pants. It has a Border emblem on each sleeve.
Kikuchihara is one to bad-mouth others, and is disapproving of those who lose to people whom he deems weak. Despite his rude demeanor, his favorite things are buddies and friends. He seems to find Osamu interesting since he personally talked to him, and according to Tokieda, he rarely privately chats with someone that's not from Kazama Squad.
