Tropius have the appearance of a sauropod dinosaur with giant leaves covering parts of their body. Four of these leaves, located on its back, are used for flight. Even though they appear to be slow-moving, Tropius can be quite maneuverable during flight. They have long necks which they use for eating off of trees. There is a leaf-like covering on the top of its head that gives it the appearance that it is wearing a helmet. Tropius also grow bananas on their neck, showing that they are much like a tree.
