Kanaria's outfit is a bright one, consisting of puffy orange pants and a long-sleeved yellow coat, with the sleeves puffed at the shoulders and laced in white at the ends. The coat is tied in the front at the neck and the waist with brown ribbons. On the back of her coat she has another, larger sized bow, which consists of the same color of her coat. She wears classy black shoes and is often seen carrying a parasol, which she uses frequently to 'float' from place to place. Her hair is green and tied back with two massive curls that frame the bottom of her face. A heart-shaped accessory rests on the front left of her head on her hair. Her eyes are green.
Kanaria fancies herself as quite the stealthy prowler, and makes a hobby of watching the exploits of her sisters, usually through binoculars. Her cheerful, somewhat arrogant disposition makes her the ideal subject for many of the comedic episodes, and her personality mostly complements that of Hinaichigo, who eventually becomes her good friend and rival; they often debate on whose master is "better," i.e. prettier. She visits the Sakurada home more often than in the anime, and even invites Mitsu, her master, after Hinaichigo is taken by Kirakishou, in order to fill the void left by Hinaichigo. Kanaria has the unusual habit of ending her sentences with "kashira" ("I wonder?", "maybe?" or "you know?"), which is likened to Hinaichigo's penchant for ending sentences with "na no" (meaning "Because"). Kanaria's favorite food is Tamagoyaki, a Japanese thick omelet, which, more often than not, is snatched away from her by hungry birds before she can enjoy it.

Weapons and Skills
Despite being constantly funny without meaning to and making repeated failures in many of the things she does, Kanaria is a competent opponent and attacks with a violin that can emit particularly destructive sound waves. Her biggest attack is a cyclone. Her artificial spirit, Pizzicato, is named after the technique of playing orchestral instruments by plucking the strings, which she uses as a very damaging counterattack. Kanaria has 7 movements each with a particular type of attack and effect. Also when her an Jun were stuck in Kirakishou's N-field, she was able to destroy it completely showing her overall destructive power and control of it as she was able to aim directly in each crystal.
- Her name is translated as Canaria in the Tokyopop translated manga.
- Disregarding the first Drama CD with its unique cast, she is the only Rozen Maiden who has had more than one voice actress in Japanese. Yumi Shimura retired from voice acting in 2016 leaving Kanaria without an official voice actress for a few years until 2018 when a collaboration event with mobile game Gothic wa Mahou Otome featured her, requiring her to be recast. Akari Kageyama was picked and continues to voice her for collaboration events.
- Because of this, she is the only Rozen Maiden whose official voice actress debuted in the series in a form of media other than an anime.
