Kwame has dark skin, a relatively buff build, slim legs, and black hair. He sports an orange short-sleeve shirt with a green Earth emblem on the chest and a yellow collar, as well as forest green shorts, white knee-socks, blue sneakers with red laces, and a khaki vest over-top his shirt.
Kwame was considered the unofficial leader of the Planeteers. Though soft-spoken, Kwame knows how to take charge when necessary. Like Captain Planet, Kwame is disappointed and depressed that his teammates split up due to their fighting and that the world hadn't gotten better.
- LeVar Burton, Kwame's original voice actor, returns to reprise his role as the Planeteer with the power of Earth.
