As a two-year-old toddler, Mirai is outgoing and friendly to her parents' students. She also like to give others nicknames. As a kunoichi, Mirai is cheerful and energetic.
Mirai is a young woman with long, unruly black hair and red, ringed irides both of which she inherited from her mother, while for the most part she strongly resembles her father. She wears the standard attire of the Konoha-nin inclusive of a green flack jacket over a black jumper and forehead protector.
As an infant, she was depicted wearing a simple yellow kimono with blue trimmings, held closed by a white sash. Two years after her birth, her hair grew a significant amount and has a short ponytail tied above her head. Mirai wore a tan outfit with lighter tan colour stripe trimmings wrapped around her outfit, in a similar manner of how her mother wore her previous outfit. She also wears pink shinobi sandals.
As she was selected to accompany the Sixth Hokage, it is presumable that Mirai is a very capable kunoichi.

She has also pulled Akamaru's ears, with the latter surprisingly tamed. Later, at the wedding, she rides Akamaru around.
Thirteen years later, now a young adult and full-fledged kunoichi, Mirai became committed to making her late-father proud. When her mother, Kurenai, noticed that she hadn't left for her escort mission yet, Kurenai told Mirai that she was running late to meet with the Seventh Hokage. However, Mirai informed her mother that she was actually supposed to follow the predecessor, and that she didn't need to go in early.
