He wears a red hooded jacket with white edges near the zipper and a white section on the back of the hood. It is lined with pink material. Underneath is a multi-colored rainbow shirt. He also appears to wear black fingerless gloves, ripped dark grey jeans with silver studs along the pockets and around the waist with a silver buckle, and black boots. His nails are painted black and he has a black choker around his neck.

As Reverser Edit

Reverser is in a checkerboard patterned outfit. The left side of the outfit has solid black markings, like on the upper head, arm, fingers, chest, torso, and leg. On the right side, the lower head, palm, teeth and half of a circle on the chest are black. Reverser's weapon is a white and black paper plane that can reverse the abilities or the personality of the person who is hit. He rides on a triangular paper plane-like object.
