=== Appearance ===Ryuji has short spiky dyed blond hair and dark brown eyes. According to Sadayo Kawakami, his hair is naturally black. He has a noticeable widow's peak and his eyebrows are unusual in that he lacks the outer sides. He is shown to be muscular. He wears his winter school uniform a bit modified. It consists of the standard black blazer, unbuttoned to reveal a yellow t-shirt with a comic style star symbol and the word 'ZOMG!' He has plaid trousers rolled up to reveal his ankles. His pants have black suspenders that hang down instead of being worn on his shoulders. He has a white belt. His white sneakers have a rising sun flag motif.
His summer school uniform is the same as his winter's, except his yellow t-shirt is replaced with a red one reading 'NO MO RULES' and he no longer wears his blazer.
His burglar outfit consists of matching black jacket and pants with knee pads, a red ascot, combat boots, a pair of yellow gloves, and a skull mask.
Due to his injury, he walks and runs with a slight limp, and occasionally trips if he overexerts himself.
=== Character and Personality ===Ryuji is known as a disruptive "problem student" at school whose bad behavior causes all sorts of trouble for the teachers. His rebellious, mischievous and disobedient nature are the perfect qualities to be a Phantom Thief. He is a bit short-tempered, easily taking offense from even the slightest of comments from others and can sometimes even resort to violence. In the opposite way, Ryuji can make harsh comments of his own without thinking of the consequences, which is the very thing that causes the hostility between him and Morgana. He tends to be very blunt about his feelings without showing any hesitation, especially in regards to his hatred of selfish adults. He can be clumsy and overly energetic sometimes, which usually results in loud outbursts that most times include accidentally revealing himself and his friends as the Phantom Thieves. This consequently helped Makoto Niijima to identify him and the others when she was tailing them.
Beneath his seemingly delinquent-like behavior, Ryuji is actually a kind and altruistic person who is still trying to cope with his inability to continue becoming an athlete after the injury he suffered at Kamoshida's hand. He deeply cares for his mother and takes fervent effort as an athlete to relieve her worries; he reveals his father was an alcoholic who beat him and his mother and then left, so he only has his mother left. Ryuji also cares for the afflictions of others around him, such as when he attempts to help end the abuse of the volleyball team. Around his close friends, he is upbeat, friendly, and straightforward.
