Espio is a fairly-tall anthropomorphic chameleon with fuchsia, yellow, and black scales, peach-yellow skin, and golden eyes. He also has a chameleon tail behind his back, a chameleon's horn on his forehead and black, sharp spikes on his back.

Espio wears a pair of white gloves, topped with triangular violet pads that are trimmed in white, and seperate black glove cuffs, in white bandaging in the middle segment, complete with gold-colored buttons/bolts on the foremost segment, overlaid by a tongue with gray compartments. On his footwear, he wears a pair of violet shoes intact by black straps with black accents and rubber soles, and seperate black ankle cuffs, covered in white bandaging in the middle segment, complete with gold-colored buttons/bolts on the foremost segment.


Espio is very serious, quiet, laid-back, wise and disciplined, but also opinionated and somewhat arrogant at times. Despite this fact, he is usually eager to find danger to flex and polish his ninja skills. He is seen as a ninja-based character; his battle poses and shuriken stars support that portrayal.
