Its body is primarily green and has a thin, cream-colored sections bothsection between theits sectionshead, ofthorax, its bodyand (e.gabdomen. betweenFemale itsScyther headhave andlarger thorax)abdomens than male Scyther. Its reptilian head has two narrow, triangular eyes and three blunt horns extending from its forehead. Its arms end in large, white scythes, which it uses for both hunting and fighting. Two pairs of cream-colored wings extend from its back. While these wings do allow Scyther to fly, it rarely does so. Scyther's thighs have large, upward-pointing spikes. Its feet are tall (extendingand almost toextends its thighs), rounded, and conical; each foot ends in three small, white claws on its front side. Female Scyther have larger abdomens than male Scyther.
 
Scyther is an adept hunter that tears at its prey with its scythes. Thanks to its green coloration, it can camouflage itself well in the {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Grassland Pokémon|grasslands}} and forests where it lives. Humans rarely encounter wild Scyther in these areas, however. Said to be like a ninja, Scyther can move so quickly that it cannot be followed, increasing the effectiveness of its scythes. It maintains the sharpness of its blades through battle as well as by cutting through hard objects, such as trees; it can cut down a massive tree with just a single slice. [[EP097|The anime]] has shown that wild Scyther form swarms with a single leader chosen through combat. When a challenger successfully defeats a current leader and replaced it, the defeated leader is exiled from the swarm. [[EP042|It has also been shown]] that Scyther becomes aggressive when faced with the color red.
