Shinki is described as the calm and collected leader-like figure of his team.
Shinki has dark spiky hair, small eyebrows and grey eyes. Just like Kankurō, Shinki sports face paint, which takes the shape of two red "E"-like markings that are similar to designs on Gaara's Sand Gourd. His outfit consists of a dark cloak made of Iron Sand which he wears over his Suna flak jacket, a brown full-body outfit, which covers his throat, complete with a dark blue Suna forehead protector and black calf-length shinobi sandals. He is also seen carrying his skeleton-like puppet alongside him.
Shinki is a powerful shinobi who excels in his team due to his observant eye.
Shinki is capable of using the Magnet Release kekkei genkai, allowing him to control Iron Sand, which he conveniently carries around with him, shaped into a cloak. Using such ninjutsu, Shinki can create a single platform, connected to his cloak, which is capable of supporting him and his allies, allowing them to float while on it. He also uses the Iron Sand in conjunction with his puppets.
