Stinger is a tall, muscular man with green eyes, a five o'clock shadow, and short black hair. The red outfit he wears makes him look like a human version of Shin Getter Dragon.
Stinger is outspoken and assertive in his belief that Sora has to die for the Getterborn to stop their attacks, though Riku thinks Stinger is only trying to justify some deep-seated grudge against him. As the ultimate example of toxic masculinity, he is also very short-tempered, utterly disrespectful of other's personal feelings, and quick to use physical force on those who so much as defend Sora or take issue with the harshness of Stinger's often vulgar vocabulary, no matter how much truth it contains.
After Sora's first run-in with the Getterborn, Stinger appears to denounce him as an enemy of the universe for abusing the Power of Waking, and insists the Getterborn will continue to wreak wanton destruction until Sora is dead. Riku, however, believes Stinger, whether he has anything to do with the Getterborn or not, may actually be looking for an excuse to have Sora murdered.
- "Well send my rock-hard ass to hell for preachin' the goddamn cold, hard truth!"
- "They're gonna be comin' after your friends too, punk! And the only way to save them is if your scrawny ass dies first." - to Sora
Cowen Stinger's name is derived from Dr. Cowen and Dr. Stinger, two major antagonists in Getter Robo Armageddon. This, along with Riku's suspicions may hint at Stinger being as evil as his namesakes.
- Stinger not only has the same English voice as Gladiolus Amicitia, he also takes a majority of Gladio's traits to dangerous extremes.
