Buzzwole is a giant, humanoid mosquito-like Ultra Beast. It has a tiny, flat head with a black ridge running across the middle. It has two red compound eyes with two black, spherical basal joints between them for its red and black antennas. A long, silver proboscis protrudes from behind these joints. It features a lot of bulging muscles that look like sacs filled with a crimson fluid with little white bubbles within. Each arm has three sacs, each leg has two, the chest has two, and the shoulders and back have more. Three bands of smaller sacs surround its waist. Thin, grey lines resembling tendons run through the muscles on its chest, as well as those on its arms and waist. It has four pointed legs and big, five-fingered hands with scarlet knuckles. Its body is covered with black spikes, including one on each side of its skull, two on each shoulder, one on each elbow, and one on each leg. Its body is dark crimson or black in the areas between its muscles. Two pairs of pale orange wings with somewhat darker veins cover its back.

Its most significant attribute, according to Wicke of the Aether Foundation, is its capacity to strengthen itself. It absorbs the energy of its adversary by piercing its proboscis into it. This produces a chemical reaction inside its bodily fluids, causing its muscles to expand at a rapid pace, adding to its already tremendous strength. Buzzwole seems to assume bodybuilding poses before engaging in any activity. This is assumed to be its primary mode of communication, although what it may be attempting to say is unknown.
