"You need to change your approach. Stop trying to find the fighters with your brain and use your body!"
Rumsshi is a thin and pink skinned humanoid elephant with wide ears, sharp blue sclera eyes and a pair of short tusks. He wears clothing which resembles that of the ancient Egyptian royalty just like the other Gods of Destruction, complete with a black and orange collar with white lining on both edges and a triangular symbol on it. He also wears golden bangles and arm rings.
A relatively lazy god that likes to be praised, he doesn't like to destroy planets because he finds it too much of a pain. Like most of the other Gods of Destruction thus far, Rumsshi has taken an immediate disliking towards Goku because of the consequences of the Tournament of Power, as well as the Saiyan's casual attitude towards Zeno, which Rumsshi perceives as disrespectful. Apparently, he doesn't realize that this same "disrespectful Saiyan" also helped indirectly save him from death at the hands of Zamasu when the latter was about to murder Gowasu. Although, that could be attributed to the fact that Gowasu probably did not tell him. He also believes that strength is the key to winning the Tournament of Power, as he told Gowasu to think with his body instead of his brain, and also recruited members who rely too much on brute strength.
While interacting with Gowasu and Kusu, despite his ego and approval of Murichim's overly-enthusiastic nature, Rumsshi is also shown to be capable of being mature and serious, as he acknowledged Gowasu's overthinking as his main flaw, although he is not mature to the same extent as Gowasu; he displays some similarities with Pell in that he sees muscle and flesh as a way to win a fight, though, in his case, he recommends the use of the body only when the mind fails. He also does not seem to have any problems with Kusus' lighthearted attitude. Similarly to Belmod and Khai, he seems to be on good terms with his Supreme Kai.
In the manga, however, Rumsshi's relationship with his Supreme Kai appears to be somewhat strained from recent events. Rumsshi shows frustration upon finding out the danger which Zamasu put the universe in, the attempt on his counterpart's life, and that it was Beerus who had to solve it. When frustrated, he is not above threatening the life of his Kai, even though the two are life linked.
Like most of the Gods of Destruction, Rumsshi has a very low tolerance towards the failure of his subordinates as when Lilibeu was ejected from the arena, he was very angry that she was not thinking about using her wings. He was also seen comically hitting Zium and Jirasen upside their heads when they were both knocked out of bounds. Rumsshi, in the end, had accepted his fate and closed his eyes after all members of Team Universe 10 lost and were erased from existence.
In the manga, at some point in time, Rumsshi 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 calm Zeno down, who was furious. Since then, Rumsshi and the other Gods of Destruction have felt disdain towards Beerus.

In the manga, Rumsshi was scolding Gowasu over the situation that Zamasu caused, and the fact that they had to rely on his most hated God of Destruction, Beerus, to resolve it. He and Gowasu are terrified when the Grand Minister calls, with Rumsshi threatening to kill Gowasu if the summons was to punish them for what Zamasu was planning.
When Champa called the other Gods of Destruction whose universes were participating in the Tournament of Power, Rumsshi strongly found Goku's actions with Zeno distasteful. Rumsshi gathered all ten warriors from his universe, stating that Gowasu uses his head too much and has a tendency to overthink things, so he should rely on the flesh rather than the mind in such times. After all their fighters were eliminated, Rumsshi and Gowasu quietly accepted their fates, as Universe 10 is erased.
