Achu wears a yellow headdress with several triangular ridges in a half-circle. Two bars point downwards on the sides of the arc. Most of the points are colored red with green triangles and ovals, but the two lowest ones are left blank. A blue bird's face is printed on the front and a part which falls over Achu's face resembles a beak.
Achu has a frowning expression and two thick, grey lines spread across his face stopping in the center and around his eyes and mouth. Achu wears a pointed, red cape which is decorated on the back with a tribal minifigure head, green triangles, and yellow shapes and swirls. Achu wears little on his torso, only feathers on a shall which hangs over his chest and a medallion with blue and red ridge patterns.
Over his hips he has a green cloth decorated with blue, red, and yellow colorings and beads.
Achu is seen carrying a black spear with feathers colored red and blue, the sun disk, and also creatures such as spiders and snakes.
In The Lost Temple - An Interactive Puzzle Book, Achu appears when Palomar and Rudo Villano grabbed the sun disk, he caught them in a net trap he set. In addition, he made Johnny Thunder choose between two flowers, one meaning life, the other death. Pippin Reed interpreted the wall paintings correctly so they chose the correct flower and survived.
He also appears in a comic included in the instruction manual for 5976 River Expedition where Palomar and Villano rob his temple of the Sun Disk and a jewel. Johnny Thunder, Dr. Kilroy, and Gabarro confront the villains and return the treasure to a grateful Achu.
In the video games
Achu appears in three video games always as a minor character.
In LEGO Island 2 The Brickster's Revenge, Achu reappears as a minor character. He appears in a small jungle village on Adventure Island blocked off to Pepper at first, but when he returns with the dinosaurs, the village opens up and Achu and the others come out. Pepper is able to interact with him, but not understand Achu who does not speak English but instead in musical notes. In the GBC version of the game he uses his magic to transport Pepper to Castle Island and he also appears on a collectable card.
Achu appears one final time in LEGO Racers 2, this time on Dino Island which also shares aspects of the Jungle subtheme of Adventurers. In this game the stripes on his face are blue and the printing on his legs are reversed. He can be interacted with, and understood. A villager suggests that Achu and the others were able to come to Dino Island using a mystical portal.
- In My LEGO Network an Achu sticker can be acquired.
