Burly is very large and overweight, with a big rounded body, thick arms and a chubby face. He has prawn pink skin with small black eyes with small darker pink circles around his eyes, a small nose tipped with darker pink and a small mouth. He wears a white shirt that is too small for him, the sleeves only come halfway down his arms and it doesn't fit his body. His shirt has an open front that shows off his chest and his belly, which has a white diamond around the bellybutton. He also wears white trousers, baby blue coloured shoes with black upside down triangles on them, and a white standard airforce cap that also doesn't fit properly, which covers his black Afro hair that he uses as a parachute, like the other members of the Air Force.
Burly appears to be very greedy, as he likes to eat a lot. He is often seen eating when off duty and once made a sad face when he could not eat in "Pitched Battle of the Air Force". He is also brave, like the other members of the Air Force, as they fight in air battles.
