Kobori has a rather slim and tall stature, compared to the other players. He has spiky black hair that is styled in an abstract mohawk. He plays with the number 8.
Kobori is rather calm and prefers to stay out of the spotlight and trouble. He is very determined as he wants to win despite acknowledging Teppei Kiyoshi being a better player than him.
Kobori said that Kiyoshi Teppei is the main difference from the Seirin they met during their practice match. In the entire match, he managed to hold off his own but couldn't stop Kiyoshi's Right of Postponement.
During the Winter Cup battle against Seirin, he challenged Teppei's shot although Teppei is already mid-air. He was unable to stop his Right of Postponement though. Later on in the match, Kobori continued to battle Kiyoshi, showing his skill in post moves and screening out for the rebound. Kiyoshi commented that he doesn't have as much height and strength like the Yōsen centers, but that his skill and speed is good. He is seen receiving Kise's Ignite Pass Kai, proving that he is physically above average.
