Arak is a tan and somewhat wrinkly humanoid with large purple eyes and an emaciated frame. He has a red mohawk and does not have a nose, but has nostrils. He also has whiskers on his face and large purple lips. Arak wears very similar clothing to other Gods of Destruction such as Beerus.
He thoroughly investigates what he should target for destruction. He tries to expand his universe's potential with the minimal amount of destruction, in contrast to other Gods of Destruction such as Beerus, who instead indulges himself or destroys planets for petty reasons. Even more, while some of the other gods appear to be lazy, Arak is shown to be a disciplined man, regularly meditating and continuing his training as a God of Destruction. He also appears to value life in general as he was also visibly disturbed at the erasure of Universes 9 and 10.
In the manga, at some point in time Arak participated in the All Universe Hide and Seek Tournament held by Zeno. But when Beerus hid and fell asleep for fifty years during the tournament, it had to be cancelled. He and the gods had to be calm Zeno down who was furious. Since then Arak and the other Gods of Destruction have felt disdain towards Beerus.

In the anime, Arak attends the Zeno Expo, along with Cukatail and Ogma, representing Universe 5. Arak watches the expo, and is opted out of the Tournament of Power due to Universe 5 having a high mortal ranking.
In the manga, Arak is summoned by the Grand Minister to Zeno's Palace and is asked to partake in the Zeno Expo between the other Gods of Destruction. He later has a look of relief when the Grand Minister announced his universe as one of the twelve that does not participate in the life-and-death Tournament of Power. Afterwards, he returned to his universe to continue maintain his duties as a God of Destruction.
In the anime, at the Tournament arena, he questions the durability of the arena. He participates in a sparring match with Iwan and Liquiir to test the stage. He fights on par with his fellow gods, but the resulting damage to the battleground meant that he and the other two combatants were responsible for repairing it. While watching the Tournament of Power, Arak was visibly disturbed at the erasure of Universes 9 and 10.
Later on, Arak stands up with his fellow Destroyers to recognize Goku's newfound power in the form of a complete Ultra Instinct state.
