Papaneel is a rather rotund Fish-Man with relatively thin legs and gray skin. His short, black hair is arranged in pattern of having seven thin stripes sticking out, while six spiked stripes inward. He had a relatively square face with a thin five-o'-clock stubble around his mouth. After being slapped hard by Otohime, one of his upper molars have been knocked out of his mouth.
He wore a ringed shirt with a green sweater underneath, black pants and a red mask with yellow spots and a white streak around the bridge of the nose, that covered the upper half of his face.
When he was first shown, he was so desperate that he committed robbery and took another citizen hostage. After Otohime confronted him about the error of his ways, he became determined to change into a better person.
