Taiga is an average height boy with messy black hair that reaches his neck and green eyes.
He wears a gakuran instead of the Edel Rose uniform because he thinks it is too flashy.
He wears a green wristband and pins green buttons with the letter 'K' onto his gakuran as a display of admiration for Kazuki Nishina.
Taiga is described as a delinquent, he is a tough guy who behaves badly. He often has a bored expression on his face and rarely speaks. The only person who can seem to control his rebellious behavior is Minato Takahashi.
He is known to be stubborn and self-centered, not caring about other people's business as long as it doesn't concern him. However, he acts indifferent towards other people because he is hiding his compassion. Beneath his ignorant attitude is actually a burning passion for things he loves, such as his love towards street-style Prism Shows and his admiration for Kazuki.
Taiga has a strong distaste towards academy-style Prism Stars and Prism Shows. It is stated that he is weak towards girls and doesn't know how to handle them, but he denies this when asked about the matter.
