Doesn't exist as they are two unrelated concepts.

In C and C++, NULL, 0 and '\0' are all the same. In Java, 0 and '\0' are the same but null is something completely different; it has no ASCII value because ASCII values are only available for chars. null is not a char.

I presume you mean to ask what the "null character" (as it is called in ASCII) looks like when you print it out. It doesn't look like anything. Try this
System.out.println((char)0);
And you won't see anything.
