Arcanine is a quadruped, canine Pokémon with an orange pelt marked by black stripes. It has diamond-shaped ears, black eyes, a round black nose, and two fangs protruding from its upper jaw. Its head and muzzle are covered in shaggy, cream-colored fur. The shaggy fur on its muzzle extends down over its chest, and long tufts of similar fur grow behind its elbows and around its ankles. Its underside is black, and it has a billowing, cream-colored tail. Its paws each have three toes and a round pink paw pad.
Arcanine is a fiercely brave and loyal Pokémon. An agile Pokémon, it is capable of running 6,200 miles in 24 hours. The speed and grace of its sprint creates the illusion that it is flying as it runs. A flame burns inside its body as a source of energy. In the anime, it was shown that it stashes food in its mane and carries it to its nest for its young. Arcanine lives in active volcanoes and on prairies.
