Formerly playing center for Teikō Middle School's basketball team, he does the same now for Yōsen High School. Beyond possessing shoulder-length, purple hair, Murasakibara is immediately recognizable for his great height, at least ten centimeters taller than any other currently revealed member of the Generation of Miracles.
Murasakibara likes snacks, a lot. He is sometimes seen carrying tons of snacks wherever he goes. The everyday Murasakibara is childish and often teases people, but once he's on the court, his personality changes. Because of his natural height and great talent, he doesn't care very much for basketball, and he said that he's annoyed seeing average people going so far on playing basketball.
He is said to be one of the greatest center among high school players in Japan.
