Laban is a short, tan-skinned boy with dark-blue, wild hair, and light teal-blue markings under both lime-green eyes. Laban's attire is Egyptian-style, with a large gold and silver collar with a cerulean stripe in the middle and blue string tied around the rib cage to the back, a golden arm band on each upper arm, a golden belt with a gold-rimmed blue and white kilt tied around electric-blue pants, and brown shoes with collars around the ankles and openings exposing both feet's bridges.
Laban Vanot has a personality slightly similar to Aiger Akabane, which means he is always ready to take on any opponent and makes friends easily. Laban also has the ability to predict the future with the help of stones as shown in Beyblade Burst Turbo - Episode 13. He also can communicate with animals, as shown with a leopard and a lizard. Even his launching style shows how much wild and catlike he is.
- Howling Bite: Leopard uses its powerful fangs to bite down and grab the opponent dealing serious damage, then spins around so fast it creates a split-second tornado to increase its throwing power to allow it to toss the opponent at the Beystadium's floor or wall or another opponent to deal massive damage.
