Infernape is a bipedal, primate-like Pokémon with reddish-brown hair and white fur on its chest, head, and lower legs. Its body is adorned with many gold marks, including swirling, circular ones on its knees and shoulders, flame-shaped ones on the back of its hands, and a stripe across its back that creates two swirls on its chest. On top of its head is a big flame that never goes out. Infernape features a rounded orange nose, large, round ears with blue insides, and a crimson ridge over its eyes. The eyes are blue in color with golden sclerae. It has five blue fingers on both its feet and hands and a lengthy tail.

This swift Pokémon engages in a peculiar martial style that incorporates all of its limbs, shrouding itself in flame and using flaming punches and kicks. This kind of warfare is similar to dance.
