His distinctive dreadlocks may have vanished - but his trademark tongue-out grin after he bags each goal is constant. And the legions of defenders on the receiving end grows by the week.
After Larsson returned from his injury he soon proved his class, scoring 35 league goals for Celtic, and lifting Europe's Golden Shoe award - previously held by the likes of Eusebio, Gerd Mueller and Ronaldo.
Nevertheless, a question mark still remains over Sweden's golden boy.
Some say Larsson cannot be held in the same esteem as Henry, Owen, Totti or Raul because he has never proved himself consistently at the highest level.
That doubt will always remain for as long as 'McLarsson' continues to play in the Scottish Premier League.
Celtic boss Martin O'Neill says his striker is 'world class', and 115 goals in 147 appearances is an impressive statistic.
But it is beyond question that terrorising opposition such as Kilmarnock, Dundee, Hibernian and Motherwell will not win you much kudos on the world stage.
Nevertheless, eight goals in Sweden's 10 World Cup qualifying games proves Larsson is not fazed by the international arena.
