ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a relatively tall male (simply under two meters), well-built, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst the 4 Emperors previous and present he stands out as the smallest, most normal-sized by far, the others being different degrees of inhumanly proportioned. Real to his epithet, Shanks has distinctly red hair: usually depicted across media as deep-crimsonish. Worthy of note is that, uniquely among all characters yet seen, even ones with comparable hair tone, Shanks' hair is the sole one filled with grayscale in the black-and-white manga (instead of tattooed black or left white). His first-seen hairdo was a directly, middle-parted one kept loosely down to nape length, with much shorter (at eye level), curtained bangs in the front.  In later looks (at 10 years older), he is shown with somewhat longer hair, wavier and more slicked back than prior to other than for some couple of hairs he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed farther sideward than said prior bangs.
On his face lives a secondary hallmark: a triple set of vertically parallel, direct scars that pass at an angle over his left (unblemished) eye, revealed to have been offered to him by Blackbeard some unknown time before the start of the series. Furthermore, Shanks' left arm is missing out on from listed below the deltoid, an outcome of him saving Luffy from a Sea King when Luffy was here a child.
As did his hair, Shanks' face changes as the manga's art style progresses: initially, it appeared more younger, a soft jawline tapering down to a little, pointy chin. Its functions were likewise milder than later on representations and, conserve for his small nose, also larger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later appearances show him more considerably countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the chiseled, more prominently bridged nose providing him a manlier look. More constant stays the guy's facial hair, nevertheless, that he has actually constantly kept in a nicely thin connection of beard and mustache bristle, forming the starts of a circle beard.
