ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a relatively high guy (just under 2 meters), durable, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Among the 4 Emperors past and present he stands out as the tiniest, most normal-sized by far, the others being numerous degrees of inhumanly proportioned. Real to his epithet, Shanks has definitely red hair: generally portrayed across media as deep-crimsonish. Worthwhile of note is that, distinctively among all characters yet seen, even ones with equivalent hair tone, Shanks' hair is the sole one filled with grayscale in the black-and-white manga (instead of inked black or left white). His first-seen hairdo was a straight, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with much shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later on appearances (at 10 years older), he is shown with slightly longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than prior to except for some couple of hairs he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed further sideward than said prior bangs.

As did his hair, Shanks' face modifications as the manga's art design advances: initially, it appeared more younger, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its features were similarly milder than later representations and, conserve for his little nose, also bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later appearances reveal him more noticeably countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower set of eyes, and the sculpted, more prominently bridged nose lending him a manlier appearance. More constant stays the male's facial hair, however, that he has always kept in a nicely thin connection of beard and mustache bristle, forming the starts of a circle beard.

Clothes-wise, Shanks used to wear a particular straw hat gotten from Gol D. Roger (his previous captain) that was synonymous with his image until he passed it on to Luffy. Otherwise, his outfit constantly consists of a sweeping long, sleeveless black cape with a high collar (in the anime bearing a lighter, gray within), and under it a basic, white t-shirt half-buttoned up, exposing the middle of his chest and upper abs. In addition, Shanks is constantly seen wearing pants cut listed below the knee, gathered midway up the shin. Initially (Chapter 1) the pair was a somewhat loose, plain-brown one with golden buttons down the external leg sides, and with a red sash around his waist to keep his shirt tucked within. In the future, he is seen using a different, slightly baggier pair of trousers with a green-yellow, indiscernible floral pattern (now exposing plenty leg hair), and his shirt is left out of his sash, which is now revealed holding his saber at his right side. Lastly, his footwear consists of simple brown sandals, their soles gray-studded. After the timeskip, he is at some point seen using different trousers yet again, light-colored with a rose pattern.
