Tokikake has broad shoulders, an angular jawline, thin eyes, and a sharp nose. He also has a large mouth, high cheekbones, and thick eyebrows. He wears a dark-colored fedora hat, a Marine jacket with a high collar similar to Issho's, a button-down long-sleeved blue shirt underneath with the sleeves partially rolled up, and a necklace that seems to have some kind of charm attached to it. He sports a yellow haramaki on his waist, and wears brown trousers. Like his friend Issho, he wears geta sandals. His Marine jacket has brown sleeve cuffs, matching the color in his alias. His jacket is also unique in that it sports a gridline pattern design. His hat has a band going around it that sports the same gridline pattern. He is often seen smoking a pipe.
As a Marine, Tokikake strongly believes in Justice, although he may have his own view of justice as he had no issues with Gion questioning Garp's lack of concern for his grandson, despite the latter being a pirate. He seems rather relaxed, and showed no concern over the threat of Kaido and Charlotte Linlin teaming up. He has a love for pretty women and will say "pretty woman" if speaking to one, such as Gion.
Abilities and Powers
As a vice admiral, Tokikake is capable of using Haki, and has command over all soldiers ranked below him. He is strong enough to be considered for the promotion to admiral, despite ultimately not being selected.
During the Timeskip
During the timeskip, Tokikake was considered as a candidate to become one of the new admirals. However, he did not make the cut, as Issho and Ryokugyu attained the positions instead. He asked Momousagi out 100 times but was rejected each time.

Concludes non-canon section.
After the Marines intercepted a communication between Big Mom and Kaido, Tokikake was at the Red Port talking with Garp and Gion about the possibility of the two Emperors teaming up to kill Monkey D. Luffy. Despite the tense situation, he remained mostly relaxed.
One Piece: Stampede
Concludes non-canon section.
- Although he was not made admiral, his alias follows the scheme of the admirals' code-names being a color and an animal. Chaton (茶豚?) literally means "brown pig", and the Japanese word for brown is cha-iro (茶色 brown color?).
- Coincidentally, Chaton is also the French word for "kitten", which also fits the animal theme.
- Also like the admirals, his appearance is based on a real actor. In this case, Kiyoshi Atsumi, specifically in his most famous role as the star of the Tora-san film series. His hat, haramaki, necklace, and jacket are of similar design to the titular character Torajirō Kuruma.
