Its face has two beady eyes and a yellow patch in between them that looks like an "x", which is where the Drifloon's mouth is seen such as in the Anime or Pokemon-Amie. At the top of their head, Drifloon have a small bit of "fluff" that appears to be a small cloud. Near the bottom of their body are two arms, skinny enough to be like string, with yellow heart-shaped hands at the tips.

Additionally, shiny Drifloon are yellow instead of purple, and have a light blue patch and hearts. Also, there are no gender differences between male and female Drifloon.
