Yawara is a tall, muscular man with short brown hair and a small triangle shaped beard. He has blank white eyes with black markings surrounding them. Tiger wears a brown version of the Pussycats' hero costume.
Yawara is a very macho, strict and intimidating man who almost always has a fear-inducing aura surrounding him. At the same time, he maintains the same level of goofy eccentrics as his teammates.
Tiger appears to take the duty of training U.A. High students very seriously. Almost everyone he encountered among the students was immediately intimidated by his presence. He is unafraid to push his students, even inviting them to break their muscles so they can grow back stronger. He does not tolerate any slacking off, and is willing to physically punish students who are not "Plus Ultra".
Tiger also has a caring side, being very adamant about protecting both his students and teammates. He became enraged at the sight of Pixie-Bob's assault at the hands of Magne.
Enhanced Strength: Yawara has enhanced physical strength. While it is unknown precisely how strong he is, he was strong enough to apprehend and defeat the notorious Magne and easily knock back Izuku using 5% of One For All.
