Kuru is a tall Shinjin with orange skin, rather effeminate features, and a white mohawk. He wears a navy blue and yellow lined variation of the Supreme Kai outfit, with black pants, white boots, and green potara.
Kuru is very proud and conscious as a god. He also has a certain view as to how gods should act, finding it shameful when they bicker with each other over petty things. He also has some reservations against spying on other universes, even if it's at Quitela's request, expressing concern about Zeno finding out about their spying on Universe 7. Kuru seems to be on good terms with his God of Destruction, Quitela, and does not seem to object to Quitela's scheme to use Universe 9 in an attempt to prevent Universe 7 from assembling ten warriors.

Main article: Universe Survival Saga Kuru, alongside Quitela and Cognac attends the Zeno Expo. He is later summoned to the Supreme Kai meeting by Cae. When Quitela reveals he sent spies to other universes, Kuru shows concern that Zeno might find out what Quitela did. He remains silent during the Tournament of Power. After the Grand Minister approves the use of Potara fusion, he states that his universe had no need for it. He later is erased by the Zenos after Team Universe 4 was defeated.
As a Supreme Kai, Kuru is much more powerful than average mortals and lower Kais.
