In this paper we consider the locally backward self-similar solutions for the Euler system, and specially focus on the case that the possible nontrivial velocity profiles have non-decaying spatial asymptotics. We derive the representation formula of the pressure profile in terms of the velocity profiles in such a situation, and by using it and the local energy inequality of the profiles, we prove some nonexistence results and show the energy behavior concerning these possible velocity profiles.
