Orikko is burnt orange, the color getting lighter the further down their body, with orange eyes and yellow sclerae. They have a rooster comb on their head, a yellow beak, and a rooster-like tail with three tips.
Orikko can fly, levitate, and phase through solid objects. They can also carry objects that are larger and/or heavier than themself.
As a kwami, Orikko is able to transform the holder of the Rooster Miraculous into a rooster-themed superhero, although it is unknown what the transformation looks like or what powers the transformed person gains.
Before Season 2
Before the Miraculous jewels were created, Orikko and the other kwamis traveled all over the universe unable to interact with humans. Thousands of years ago, a mage created the Miraculouses. When its Miraculous was not being worn, Orikko was dormant in the Rooster Miraculous, which was stored inside Master Fu's Miraculous jewelry box.
During Season 2, Orikko was dormant in the Rooster Miraculous.
In "Sandboy", Orikko was celebrating Nooroo's birthday in the Miracle Box with the other kwamis and was excited when Tikki and Plagg arrived. They marveled at the gift Tikki brought as he thought it was a paintbrush and draws a line with the marker to the other kwamis. When it came the time to find Nooroo, Orikko got into position but in an effort to contact him, they contacted his wielder instead. Hearing his voice the kwami shuddered at the thought of being his slave and prevented them from being discovered when they all cut off the connection. But then the kwami realized if they contacted Nooroo's wielder, rather than Nooroo, then someone must have been akumatized, and Tikki and Plagg's wielders would be in danger.
