AppearanceHe has light red hair that is shaped like the top of an ice cream on top of his head. He also has pink blush on both of his cheeks and is the first character in the series to do so.
Just before the Districts took place, It is shown in SonoPuri that a short time before the tournament, Rikkai Dai and Kakinoki had a friendly training match in which the best of the Rikkai Dai 2nd and 1st years went up against a full strength Kakinoki in order to strengthen the younger players of Rikkai Dai. Kakinoki's captain, Kuki, is intially meant to play against Kirihara Akaya, however due to Kirihara at this time paying an unplanned visit to Seigaku, Rikkai regulars Niou Masaharu and Yagyuu Hiroshi conspire and dress Urayama as Kirihara instead. Kuki defeats Urayama 6-1, but he receives compliments from Rikkai's regulars for his efforts in taking a game from the older and more experienced player.
Shiita is shown in the original series to be a Rikkaidai student cheering on his senpais.
Urayama appears in New Prince of Tennis at the gates of the U-17 Camp entrance and bumps into Yamabuki 1st Year Dan Taichi and Seigaku 1st year Horio Satoshi. The latter two arrived at the entrance to give items to Akutsu Jin and Echizen Ryoma respectively. The three of them decide to sneak into the camp.
