Bisharp is a tall humanoid-looking warrior-like Pokémon. Its body is heavily armored and appears to be made of metal. Like its pre-evolution, Pawniard, Bisharp has a helmet-like red and gray dome on its forehead with a large and very sharp double-edged yellow blade protruding from its forehead and extending down the back of its head. It has small, glaring eyes with black pupils and a yellow face with a visible frowning mouth. Its torso and abdomen are deep gray with three vertical segments and two sharp, crescent-shaped blades encircling its chest and abdominal sections. It has armored red shoulders with thin black arms and glove-like white hands with two fingers and blades on its elbows. Its legs are powerfully-built and red in color, and its feet (which look like armored boots) are white with a vertical segment running through each.
A Bisharp is always the leader of a pack of Pawniard. Yet, there can be only one Bisharp to be the leader, so when a Pawniard evolves, it fights with the original leader. The loser (either the pack leader or the newly-evolved one) gets banished from its pack forever, and usually this kind of event traumatizes it, causing it to go nuts completely especially in severe cases.
