ContentsAppearanceEdit Shanks is a reasonably high man (simply under 2 meters), well-built, tan-complexioned, and in the prime of his mid-adulthood. Amongst the 4 Emperors past and present he sticks out as the tiniest, most normal-sized by far, the others being numerous degrees of inhumanly proportioned. True to his epithet, Shanks has distinctly red hair: generally portrayed across media as deep-crimsonish. Worthwhile of note is that, uniquely 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 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 strands he lets fall down the sides of his face, pushed further sideward than said prior bangs.
On his face lives a secondary trademark: a triple set of vertically parallel, linear scars that pass at an angle over his left (unblemished) eye, revealed to have actually been provided to him by Blackbeard some unknown time prior to the start of the series. Additionally, Shanks' left arm is missing out on from below the deltoid, a result of him conserving Luffy from a Sea King when Luffy was a child.
As did his hair, Shanks' face changes as the manga's art design progresses: at first, it appeared more younger, a soft jawline tapering down to a small, pointy chin. Its functions were similarly milder than later on depictions and, save for his little nose, likewise bigger, most so his plain-black eyes, topped by thin brows.  Later on appearances reveal him more significantly countenanced, the square of his jaw, the sharper, narrower pair of eyes, and the sculpted, more prominently bridged nose providing him a manlier appearance. More constant stays the guy's facial hair, nevertheless, that he has actually always kept in a nicely thin connection of beard and mustache stubble, forming the starts of a circle beard.
