[[folder:Tsuna]]

!'''Tsunayoshi "Tsuna" Sawada'''
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tsuna59273.jpg]]
--> '''Vongola Decimo'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Yukari Kokubun (Present), Creator/DaisukeNamikawa (Future)

Tsuna was a [[ButtMonkey useless kid]] who wasn't good at sports and [[CanNotSpitItOut couldn't talk to girls]] to save his life. Well, that's before he met a particular infant hitman named [[TricksterMentor Reborn]], who turned his life around forever. It just so happens that 'No Good' Tsuna is the [[UnexpectedSuccessor future boss]] of [[TheMafia the Vongola]], the greatest mafia family in Italy. He's far from no-good these days though, [[BewareTheNiceOnes beating down]] anyone who threatens the people he loves with the power of his Dying Will Flame. But the villains always seem to be [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller cynical about his height]].

----
!!!''His brow ever furrowed, he holds his fists up as in prayer... That is the Vongola Decimo.''
* AccidentalPervert: In the very first chapter. This lead to DeathEqualsRedemption. Literally. Reborn [[FirstEpisodeResurrection killed him]], invoking [[UnstoppableRage Dying Will]]... [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment Pulling Mochida's hair out]]...
* AdaptationDyeJob: In the manga his eye color is closer to yellow/orange/gold than it is to brown.
* AChildShallLeadThem: Reborn, and the Vongola family by extension, want him to become the boss as soon as possible, though he's reluctant about the whole ordeal.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AllLovingHero: He'll forgive ''anyone''--including people who are completely un-remorseful. He won't kill either, [[spoiler:although freezing Xanxus counts as okay. And so does reducing Byakuran into nothingness, apparently, but that was sorta justified, a bit.]]
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Used to laugh and call him names. But then Rudolph became a Mafia Boss.
* AnIcePerson: His Zero Point Breakthrough: First Edition, which is primarily used for sealing Dying Will Flames and those who use them.
* AnimalsHateHim: Dogs do ''not'' like Tsuna. Well, when he got older, supposedly over time. When he was younger, it was actually a dog that wanted to lick him, but poor guy was so terrified he cried.
* AnimeHair: It's been like that ''since birth'', [[http://reborn.wikia.com/wiki/Tsunayoshi_Sawada as the wiki states (look under the Trivia Section)]], and no conditioner can bring it down.
** ShonenHair: Although it looks a lot softer than the normal example. A couple of official artworks show it [[http://static2.minitokyo.net/view/05/46/599805.jpg blowing in the wind]].
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable
** BadassCape: Thank you, Natsu.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Falling down stairs one moment, doing aerial acrobatics the next.
** [[spoiler:FutureBadass: As a MagnificentBastard.]]
** TookALevelInBadass
* BenevolentBoss: Despite his reluctance, his unbiased compassion to others have earned the friendships of several who were once his enemies.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: The reason why he likes Kyoko.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Even ''mentioning'' his friends in a sentence with a threat in it will provoke a violent reaction.
* {{Bishonen}}: Post-ArtEvolution.
* BookDumb: Getting a "2" on his test, yet he's (when he puts his mind to it) able to figure out how to properly utilize his X-Burner within a few days.
* BreakTheCutie: Happens every arc. Usually as a result of trusting people too easily.
* ButtMonkey: It gets less apparent as the show goes on, but he can never catch a break until he becomes the boss.
* CannotSpitItOut: To Kyoko. Still can't ''really'' tell her what he wants, but he's getting there.
** Subverted, since he does in the very first chapter (with a little help from Reborn). Unfortunately [[ObliviousToLove she takes it for a joke]].
* CoolPet: [[spoiler: Y'know, that lion thing with the hat]].
* CryCute
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Brown hair, brown eyes.
* DeadlyDodging
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Shamal had to [[ThanksForTheMammary check Tsuna's]] [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/katekyo_hitman_reborn/v02/c015/11.html chest]] to tell that he's not a [[{{Bifauxnen}} girl]]. Perhaps a case of FailedASpotCheck, but then again, Tsuna's almost to Kyoko levels in his manliness.
* TheDulcineaEffect: He seems to be subject to this a ''lot''. He's willing to die for Kyoko, despite hardly knowing her at the time or even ''talking'' to her. And in more recent chapters, there's his interactions and relationship with Yuni. The entire thing is made to have a sort of "KnightInShiningArmor protecting the DamselInDistress" feel. In fact, it appears that what pushed and influenced Tsuna to decide to take her under his wing and protect her was the [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/katekyo_hitman_reborn/v27/c255/7.html tear-filled, self-sacrificing feeling in her eyes]].
* EnergyAbsorption: Zero Point Breakthrough: Revised.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Possibly. Gokudera and Mukuro's [[HoYay actions]] around him certainly says much.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller
* ExtremeDoormat: At first. He's gotten better.
* EyeColorChange: Tsuna's eyes are normally [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow brown]]. However, when he goes into Dying Will Mode, they change into an [[SupernaturalGoldEyes orange-ish yellow]].
* FlashStep
* FriendToAllChildren
* [[GoKartingWithBowser Go Karting With Naito Longchamp]]
* GoroawaseNumber: 27 is a pun on Tsuna, and it appears on his gloves and headset.
* [[spoiler:GravityMaster: Briefly when his and Enma"s Rings combined to create the Oath Flame so he could defeat Daemon Spade.]]
* HeroicBSOD:
** [[spoiler:After finding out that his own father (supposedly) killed Enma's parents.]]
** [[spoiler:And now after his father defeated him in one hit.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Did this ''a lot'' in the beginning, and still does sometimes. It's also something that pisses Reborn off immensely, and is shown as [[CharacterDevelopment something he'll have to get over eventually]]. So when Tsuna demonstrates even a tiny bit of self confidence, Reborn regards it as a vast improvement.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Initially, but after the Kokuyo arc he's gotten better at this.
* HyperAwareness: Runs in his blood.
* IJustWantToBeNormal
* IdiotHero: Has terrible grades [[spoiler:and thinks Reborn's true form is a different person named Chaos.]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: The X-Gloves. While pretty badass looking, they're still gloves. Non-combat form: ''Woolly Mittens''.
* KaleidoscopeEyes: His eyes are normally brown, but when he goes into Dying Will Mode, they change to an [[SupernaturalGoldEyes orange-ish yellow]].
* KameHameHadoken: His X-Burner, which shoots a large blast of Dying Will Flames. [[spoiler: Taken UpToEleven with the XX-Burner as it has the strength of two X-Burners combined. Previously, Tsuna had to use one hand for the X-Burner and the other to keep himself from being blown away. The XX-Burner uses both hands for the attack.]]
* KidHero
* KidWithTheLeash: His relationship with Gokudera has shades of this, combined with MoralityChain.
* LikeParentLikeSpouse: Kyoko and Nana look surprisingly alike, and Tsuna thinks she's the prettiest girl ever.
* LikeYouWereDying: Pretty much used to be his CatchPhrase. Or maybe the PunchLine...
* LovableCoward
* LovedOnesMontage: Yup. Of course.
* LuminescentBlush
* [[MafiaPrincess Mafia Prince]]: Used to be one before Reborn came along.
* MagicPants
* MagneticHero
* MartyrWithoutACause
* MeaningfulName: Each member of the Vongola Family line, all the way from the First to Tsunayoshi (the Tenth), is named after a Tokugawa Shogun.
* [[spoiler: MeaningfulFuneral: Subverted. Only TYL!Gokudera was there.]]
* [[spoiler: MindRape: As a part of the Vongola Trial of Succession.]]
* MistakenForGay: In an early chapter, poor [[ButtMonkey Tsuna]] gets mistaken at school for [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/katekyo_hitman_reborn/v01/c004/5.html "becoming Gokudera's bitch,"]] since Gokudera suddenly became... ''very'' [[HoYay affectionate]] towards Tsuna. Gokudera certainly didn't deny it.
* MrFanservice
* OnlySaneMan: His unfortunate position as the straight man amongst a gang of complete lunatics provides much of the comic relief throughout the story.
* PintSizedPowerhouse
* PowerFist: His weapon can be considered one in a sense.
* ThePromise
* SaveTheVillain
* ShirtlessScene
* ShrinkingViolet: A male, MoeMoe version. Very shy, [[CannotSpitItOut can't talk with girls]], hates standing out, and only [[IJustWantToBeNormal wants to live life like a normal boy]].
* SignatureMove: The Zero Point Breakthrough and later the X-Burner.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: In his Hyper Dying Will Mode.
** Manga-wise, his eyes actually are a golden color, as compared to his anime self who has brown eyes that turn orange in his Hyper Dying Will Mode.
* TaremeEyes: They make him look like a girl. This changes into TsurimeEyes he goes into Hyper Dying Will Mode, albeit it's somewhat subtle.
* TeachHimAnger
* ThisLoserIsYou: 'No Good' Tsuna, at least at the very beginning.
* ThouShallNotKill: [[spoiler: Played straight till he actually killed Byakuran, who had become pretty inhuman by that point. And then double subverted when Byakuran is revealed to still be alive.]]
* TranquilFury: Hyper Dying Will Mode.
* TurnTheOtherCheek
* {{Uke}}: Probably the most {{Badass}} one ever created.
* UnexpectedSuccessor
* UnluckyEverydude
* UnstoppableRage: Normal Dying Will Mode.

[[folder:Gokudera]]

!'''Hayato Gokudera'''
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hayato_0_8709.jpg]]
--> '''10th Vongola Storm Guardian'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Hidekazu Ichinose (Present), Asako Yoshida (Child)

At first, it seemed as if Gokudera was just your average, [[ButNotTooForeign foreign]] {{delinquent}}. He even came equipped with you standard-issue [[SmokingIsCool cigarettes]] and the crowd of admiring classmates. But then he was beat by Tsuna, and of course, DefeatMeansFriendship, so he started his pursuit of being the "Tenth's" [[StalkerWithACrush right hand man]]. This didn't mean that [[{{Tsundere}} he would be nice]] to ''other'' people, though. But when it really comes down to it, his aggressive tendencies have somewhat pacified due to his interactions with those ''other'' people.

----
* [[spoiler:ActionBomb: His Vongola Gear turns Uri into this, who then shrinks afterwards.]]
* AmbiguouslyBi: He has considerable HoYay towards Tsuna (though its not clear if its really love or just UndyingLoyalty). He also blushed and had a nosebleed upon seeing Lal Mirch (a beautiful woman) naked.
* AntiHero: He's a pretty big jerk towards anyone who isn't Tsuna. But he's not so bad [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold after all]].
* ArmCannon
* [[BandageBabe Bandage Dude]]: Ring Conflict Outfit. Full Stop.
** {{Sarashi}}
* BattleButler: May not actually be a butler, but the trope fits him to a T.
* {{Bishounen}}
* BodyguardCrush
* BrilliantButLazy
* ButNotTooForeign
* CanineCompanion: [[spoiler: Actually a feline companion.]]
* CatsAreMean: [[spoiler: And leopards are just [[JerkAss jerkasses]].]]
* ChickMagnet: Many girls in his class are infatuated with him, because {{all girls want bad boys}}. He doesn't appreciate the attention.
* CrazyJealousGuy
* DefeatMeansFriendship
* {{Determinator}}: Deconstructed. Gokudera will do anything to assure Tsuna's victory up to and including giving up his own life, and that is the problem. Tsuna calls him out on it.
* DevotedToYou: To Tsuna.
* FacePalm: When he realized that he was once again in that familiar circle, yelling, "[[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/katekyo_hitman_reborn/v26/c243/7.html VONGOLA... FIGHT!!!]]"
* FanOfUnderdog: Which is actually an understatement.
* GreenEyes
* GrenadeSpam
* HatesBeingTouched: In direct conflict with Yamamoto's NoSenseOfPersonalSpace.
* HiddenEyes
* IOweYouMyLife: Although this isn't the sole reason for his devotion to Tsuna, it was the trigger that made him see Tsuna as the boss he would like to follow.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: It's difficult spotting Hayato without some "bad boy" accessories, like chains, fingerless gloves, flashy belts, spikes, studs, earrings (in his TYL appearance). He and Mukuro seem to have similar tastes in clothing, ironically enough.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: If there isn't much people out there using ''flying dynamite'' as a weapon...
* [[InLoveWithYourCarnage In Love With Tsuna's Carnage]]
* JapaneseDelinquent
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer
* LoonyFan
* MadBomber
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction
* MartyrWithOutACause: Shows some signs of this in the Varia arc. Tsuna calls him out on it.
* MrFanservice
* NewTransferStudent
* NoSmoking: In the anime, where his bombs suffer from spontaneous combustion.
* PurelyAestheticGlasses: Whenever he's doing something particularly smart, he pulls them out of nowhere. Oh, and a chalkboard to go with it.
** May ''actually'' need them to read things up close.
* RedBaron: "Smoking Bomb" Hayato in the manga, "[[NoSmoking Hurricane Bomb]]" Hayato in the anime.
* SayMyName: One of the worst perpetrators of this. '''"JUUUDAIMEEE!!"''' There are even compilations of him saying this on Youtube that can go on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnVLbyytKCg forever]].
* ShirtlessScene
* SmartGuy: You wouldn't know looking at him, but he is ridiculously smart. Hell, no one else would teach a kid how to swim with ''MIT-level arithmetic''.
* SmokingIsCool: In the manga, where he is a chain smoker and uses cigarettes to light up his bombs. Lately there haven't been many chapters where Gokudera used a cigarette, or his original dynamite sticks.
* SproutingEars: Whenever he's really happy (usually because of praise from Tsuna) he [[http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac275/Akatsuki-Chika/Katekyo%20Hitman%20Reborn/Gokudera_puppy.jpg grows doggy ears and a tail]].
* StalkerWithACrush: Albeit, a much ''nicer'' one than the standard.
* TroubledButCute
* {{Tsundere}}
* UndyingLoyalty: Hell, his ''entire character song'' is dedicated to his undying loyalty for Tsuna.
* WeakButSkilled: His strengths lie mainly in his [[TheSmartGuy intelligence]] and his use of techniques.
* [[spoiler:WeaponizedAnimal: The Uri Bomb. See ActionBomb above.]]
* WhiteHairBlackHeart
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be My Sis?]]: Because of being forced to eat her poison cooking as a child, Gokudera instinctively suffers from a stomachache in Bianchi's presence (though they eventually realise they can work around that by making Bianchi wear goggles).

[[folder:Yamamoto]]

!'''Takeshi Yamamoto'''
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TakeshiYamamoto33_1441.jpg]]
--> '''10th Vongola Rain Guardian'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Suguru Inoue

You're a baseball star. The jock. Everyone loves and admires you. How could your life get any better? [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai Give the kid a sword]], and [[KatanasAreJustBetter make that sword a katana]], then [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours teach him an awesome way to use it]]! And with that, you get the Badass known as Yamamoto. You wouldn't tell how badass he is [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass by looking]], because it's always sunny in Yamamotoville. The kid's been a constant, and [[DoubleStandard welcome]] presence in Tsuna's [[UnwantedHarem family]]. And with a little help, [[TookALevelInBadass he's taken more levels in badass]] than anyone else. [[FoeYay Gokudera hates him.]]

----
* AFriendInNeed: At the beginning of the story he almost commited suicide when he thought he'd never be able to play baseball again. But the moment a friend is in danger he's happy to sacrifice whatever it takes in order to save them, be it his arm or his entire baseball career.
* TheAce: Star athlete, swordsman prodigy, natural-born assassin, incredibly NiceGuy, and generally just great enough at everything he does that even the likes of [[BloodKnight Squalo]] and [[SmugSuper Hibari]] acknowledge his talent.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassNormal
** FutureBadass: Took out a Strau Mosca without batting an eye.
** [[TookALevelInBadass Took Many, Many Levels In Badass]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: When this guy gives even the smallest of frowns, ''get the fuck out''.
* {{BFS}}
* [[spoiler: BigDamnHeroes: In Chapter 325, Yamamoto comes back from a near death experience that took him out roughly 30 chapters ago to save the ass of the dude who put him in the hospital in the first place. And it was ''awesome''.]]
* {{Bishounen}}
* BookDumb: Subverted; he tends to get low test scores like Tsuna, but it's because he's so busy with baseball that he sleeps in class and doesn't bother to crack open his books.
* ChickMagnet: A lot of the girls in his class are smitten with him. [[CluelessChickMagnet He doesn't understand why they like to give him free lunches though.]]
* CoolBike: Cool Airbike? [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks No!]]
* CoolPet: [[spoiler: Two of them!]]
* CoolSword
* DualWielding: And triple wielding, and [[SwordsAkimbo quadruple wielding]].
* EasilyForgiven: Has a habit of doing this; his friends' list include two guys who attempted to murder him, and he regards [[PsychopathicManchild Byakuran]] as 'an old acquaintance'.
* FailedASpotCheck: "Oh, are you playing Mafia again? This looks fun, let me join in!"
* FanOfUnderdog
* FriendToAllChildren: He's very nice to Lambo and I-Pin, gets along well with Colonello when they're paired together in the anime, and has a noticeably close relationship with Reborn (who usually gets around by perching on Yamamoto's shoulder). [[spoiler: Though the latter two might count as subversions given that they're adults in kid's bodies.]]
* FriendlyEnemy:
** With Squalo. He tried to get to know Squalo better during their first fight, was distressed when it seemed Squalo had been eaten, was delighted to see him alive and well after the timeskip and seemed [[spoiler:genuinely devastated when Squalo was rumored to be killed]]. On Squalo's side, he seems to act like a {{Tsundere}} towards Yamamoto, often calling him names and even at one point knocking him unconscious. However, when he heard that the Yamamoto of the future stopped his swordsmanship in order to pursue baseball, Squalo went out of his way to create Dvds of one hundred battles in hopes of getting Yamamoto interested in the sword again. [[spoiler:He also become Yamamoto's teacher later on.]]
** With Kaoru as well. He befriends him right off the bat despite his [[FaceOfAThug appearance]], and continues to regard him as a friend even after [[spoiler: Kaoru attempted to (literally) tear him in half and nearly crippled him for life. On Kaoru's part he sacrificed himself to take a blow for Yamamoto, betraying his own Famiglia by doing so.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has one on his chin in the future.
* HardWorkFallacy: He nearly [[DrivenToSuicide tried to kill himself]] over it early in the manga, but Tsuna talked him out of it.
* InterruptedSuicide: Thank you, Tsuna. You stopped him from killing himself over a broken arm. Well, in the manga.
* KatanasAreJustBetter
* [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks Kicking Your Sword Always Works]]: Shigure Soen Ryu 3rd Stance: Yarazu no Ame (Last Minute Rain).
* TheLancer
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Both father and son are very nice and a little spacey, with a hidden core of {{badass}}.
* MakingASplash: Uses the water around him in most fights to boost his Shigure Soen Ryu techniques. Makes sense since he is the rain attribute.
* MissingMom
* MrFanservice
* MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours: Shigure Soen Ryu, all the way.
* NiceGuy: Try ''insanely'' nice guy.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: In direct conflict with Gokudera's HatesBeingTouched.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In the anime, losing the game of Choice leads to him becoming impatient and outright ''ruthless'' in battle. It ends with him being the only person to lose their Guardian trial, though he gets himself together when Agetsu lets him retake it.
* OneHeadTaller: Than most of the cast.
* ThePollyanna: An eternal optimist, he's incredibly laid back, especially for a shounen character, and is usually cheerful and smiling, even when he's fighting for his life.
* [[spoiler:RazorWind: His Vongola Gear allows him to use the 12th Stance of Shigure Soen Ryu which uses two attacks, one of which happens to be this type of attack that can also "sniff people out" (Sadachi: Kirisame (Brazen Left Blade: Drizzle)).]]
* SecretKeeper: Reborn told him the secret of the Arcobaleno roughly 150 chapters before it became public knowledge. Ironic since he's usually one of the ones who knows the ''least'' about what's going on.
* SignatureMove: All of the Shigure Soen Ryu styles, but particularly the 8th Stance Shinotsuku Ame (Pelting Rain).
* SorryImLate: Said those very words. Twice.
* [[spoiler:SpamAttack: His Vongola Gear allows him to use the 12th Stance of Shigure Soen Ryu that uses two attacks, one of which is this type of attack (Udachi: Kirisame (Brazen Right Blade: Drizzle)). It involves multiple swallows made up of Dying Will Flames of the Rain flying up and piercing an opponent.]]
* StepfordSmiler: Shows signs of being this at times. Fanon usually takes such subtleties and [[UpToEleven runs with 'em for all they're worth.]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* ThouShaltNotKill: Like Tsuna; he deliberately uses the blunt side of his sword to avoid fatal blows. [[spoiler: It's a sign of how furious he is with Daemon Spade's manipulations that he doesn't hesitate to say he'll kill him.]]
* TimeStandsStill: Not really, but his Aggregate Art: Jiunoka's (Rainy Metamorphosis) tranquil power is so intense anyone caught in it stands completely still.

[[folder:Lambo]]

!'''Lambo'''
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/103074_5697.jpg]]
--> '''10th Vongola Thunder Guardian'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' JunkoTakeuchi (Young), Creator/KenjiroTsuda (Adult)

Lambo is a [[EnfanteTerrible Five Year Old Assassin]] that came from Italy. He has a habit of [[HairyHammerspace pulling weapons out of his]] [[FunnyAfro hair]], most notably when he's either trying to blow himself, or someone else up. He was really out to get Reborn, but every conflict ends up in a NonchalantDodge and NonFatalExplosions. In spite of the constant defeat, it doesn't equal friendship. Just a visit from [[FutureBadass Mr. Future Self]].

----
* AwesomeButImpractical: As pointed out in-story, his 'Elettrico Cornata' ''looks'' cool but has never hit an opponent due to its very short range. [[spoiler: Until 20YL Lambo works around the fault by projecting the lightning forwards.]]
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBaritone: 20YL Lambo.
** FutureBadass: While the 10YL Lambo is still a wimp, who also gets some badass moments, the 20YL Lambo is definitely badass.
* BerserkButton: Lambo loves Tsuna's mom, and anything that threatens her is met with lethal force. Ryohei even used Lambo's feelings for Tsuna's mom to force him to unleash his [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/katekyo_hitman_reborn/v28/c268/13.html Vongola Box Weapon.]]
* {{Bishonen}}: His 10YL form. Doubly so for his 20YL form.
* BrattyHalfPint: He's the kind of kid that makes babysitting a living hell to anyone with less patience than Kyoko and Haru.
* ButtMonkey: In the present he is 100% ButtMonkey. 10 years in the future, it's a 50-50 case. [[TookALevelInBadass But in 20 years...]]
* CatchPhrase:
** "Ga...man...n" (usually translated as 'tolerate', 'hold it in', etc.), said right before he's about to cry.
** 10YL Lambo has "Yare yare" ('My oh my') almost any time he makes an appearance.
* ChickMagnet: 10YL Lambo. He received so much chocolate on Valentine's Day that he got a nosebleed from eating it all.
* CowardlyLion: While regular Lambo [[SmallNameBigEgo thinks he's a badass]] and 20YL Lambo [[FutureBadass legitimately is one]], 10YL Lambo is much more aware of danger and would rather stay away from it. It doesn't stop him from eventually stepping up to the plate when he's needed, with varying results.
* EmotionalPowers: He only ever uses his Vongola powers when angry, sad, or homesick.
* EnfanteTerrible
* ExtraOreDinary: [[spoiler:His new Vongola Gear can use his flames to magnetize iron sand for metal constructs.]]
* FunSize: No, [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Hv-1mLTN7lI/SfRHW_Bk5vI/AAAAAAAAIys/kbV-y2hqGiU/s320/lambo.jpg that's]] not how 5 year old looks like in real life!
* FunnyAfro
* GreenEyes
* GrenadeSpam: Fond of doing this whenever he's really upset.
* HairyHammerspace: He once took a pair of bird feet out of it! Well, [[{{Squick}} without the bird]].
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: People keep forgetting that he's '''5 years old''' yet still forced to fight and often abused for laughs.
* [[spoiler: IJustWantToHaveFriends: Revealed in the Inheritance Ceremony Arc that he wants to be like the Guardians and do everything they do because he's lonely.]]
* IdenticalStranger: His 10YL self is the spitting image of Bianchi's ex-boyfriend, [[WomanScorned unfortunately for him]].
* ImprobableAge: He's a 5-year-old hitman, though he's not taken seriously by anyone.
* InelegantBlubbering: Frequently. There's a reason one of his nicknames is 'Crybaby Lambo'.
* ALoadOfBull: His AnimalMotif. [[spoiler: Also his Box Weapon.]]
* [[spoiler:LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Slightly subverted, as Lambo's shield has an offensive capability, Corna Fulmine (Lightning Horns).]]
* MrFanservice: At age 25. His age 15 self isn't too hard on the eyes, either.
* OnlyOneName
* ShockAndAwe: Besides being the Lightning Guardian, he can absorb electricity through his body, and his future selves can channel it through their horns for attacks.
* SmallNameBigEgo
* ThirdPersonPerson
* UnknownRival: To Reborn at the beginning of the story. Currently, though, he seems to have forgotten.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: 10YL Lambo, suave ladies' man that's frequently referred to as 'Adult Lambo', is only fifteen years old.

[[folder: Ryohei]]

!'''Ryohei Sasagawa'''
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/103073_9685.jpg]]
--> '''10th Vongola Sun Guardian'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' HidenobuKiuchi

[[CatchPhrase Ryohei is Extreme]]. His (empty) club is extreme. His mentor is extreme. Everything he does is extreme. The guy is always training, extremely hard, and he gets even more extreme when he ''doesn'''''t'' train. He may seem like something of an extreme virtual airhead sometimes, but there seems to be [[MookChivalry some kind of extreme logic to his madness]]. He seems to always be trying to recruit [[MistakenForBadass Tsuna]] into his extreme boxing club. [[ImpossibleTask He's just not taking no for an answer]].

----
* AwesomeButImpractical: Ryohei's Vongola Gear power allows him to absorb the damage of his opponent's attacks and reflect it onto his opponent. However, this requires him to allow himself to get hit and if the opponent hits too hard, Ryohei could go down without throwing a punch.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassNormal[=/=]CharlesAtlasSuperpower: All it took was the right sort of training and he was strong enough to destroy an entire gym building with ''one punch''.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
** FutureBadass
* BareFistedMonk
** BoxingBattler
* BigBrotherInstinct
* {{Bishounen}}
* BookDumb
* BoxingKangaroo: The wounds on Kangaryu are from the sparring sessions she has with his future self.
* CatchPhrase: "TO THE EXTREME!!!"
* DumbassHasAPoint: A couple of the manga splash pages have him point out oddities like Hibari's catch phrase or Chrome's name.
* [[spoiler:ElementalPunch[=/=]KameHameHadoken: The "Sunshine Counter" attack that comes with his new Vongola Gear lets his punches shoot concentrated blasts of Sun Flames.]]
* KangaroosRepresentAustralia: His Box Weapon.
* ExtremityExtremist: TO THE EXTREME!!
* FanOfUnderdog
* ForgetfulJones: Resolved in the future by actually taking notes.
* GoodIsDumb
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Crossing his left eyebrow.
* GrayEyes
* HandwrapsOfAwesome
* HealingFactor: His Sun Flames speed up his natural healing process. He also has a Sun Trowel that can heal others' wounds.
* HeroicResolve
* HotBlooded: So much so that the Dying Will Bullet has ''no effect'' on him!
* HowMuchMoreCanHeTake: [[spoiler:His fight with Kouyou.]]
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Punched Tsuna, of all people, for telling Kyoko the truth about the Future Conflict.
* LargeHam: "I'm a Large Ham TO THE EXTREME!"
* LeeroyJenkins: No surprise coming from the dumb, hot-blooded boxer.
* MrFanservice
* NoIndoorVoice: He does have one, it's just that he tends to forget it.
* OddFriendship: With Hibari (though calling it 'friendship' is a stretch). Emphasised in the anime when they work together to protect Namimori.
* [[spoiler:OfficialCouple: With Hana Kurokawa in the TYL arc.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Downplayed; there are people who refer to him by his proper name, but it's much more common for him to be called Turf Top/Big Brother/Senpai.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He's an excellent boxer and the strongest Guardian in terms of physical prowess, and yet is one of the weaker fighters in the group by virtue of the others just being ''better''.
* PointlessBandAid: He's still wearing it ten years in the future.
* PowerFist
* RapidFireFisticuffs
* ScarsAreForever: The scar on his forehead.
* ShirtlessScene: Almost always fights like this. It's justified though since he's a boxer.
* {{Shoryuken}}: Maximum Cannon. [[spoiler:Also Sunshine Uppercut]].
* SpamAttack: Maximum Ingram, in which he leaves after images of himself and they all use [[{{Shoryuken}} Maximum Cannon]].
* SuperDrowningSkills: He has a very... ''unique'' swimming style.
* TerribleArtist: [[http://mangafox.me/manga/kateikyoushi_hitman_reborn/v25/c230/2.html See for yourself]] (spoilers for the Future arc).

[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Hibari12_989.png]]
--> '''10th Vongola Cloud Guardian'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' TakashiKondo

Congratulations. You're the StudentCouncilPresident of the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil. [[DevilInPlainSight You can get away with ''anything'']]. You even have that [[RedArmbandOfLeadership Red Armband Of]] [[{{Delinquents}} Leadership]]. HeyWait, that's not ''you''. That's Hibari. The CurbStompBattle personified. He ''will'' be InLoveWithYourCarnage, so don't fight anywhere near him and his [[InsaneEqualsViolent Automatically Violent]] self. Violent to anything and everything other than his [[LoyalAnimalCompanion Cute Critters]], whom he won't attack even if they [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction pierce his hand]]. Remember, don't piss him off or he ''will'' "[[CatchPhrase bite you to death]]."

----
* AloofAlly
* AnimalThemeNaming: Hibari can mean skylark. Explains why he's so fond of animals, particularly birds.
* AntiHero: Type V.
* {{Asexuality}}: Married to his school.
* AxeCrazy: He's definitely one of the most AxeCrazy characters in the series. Yes, even more than pretty much all of the {{Big Bad}}s so far.
* {{Badass}}: Oh so very badass.
** BadassInDistress: Thanks to being [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] by cherry blossoms, Mukuro, [[spoiler:and Enma]].
** BadassLongcoat: [[spoiler:His Vongola Gear release.]]
** FutureBadass: If that's even possible.
* BigDamnHeroes: In a ''helicopter''.
* {{Bishounen}}
* BloodKnight: Fighting is pretty much Kyoya's sole motivation to be a Guardian.
* CantHoldHisLiquor
* CurbStompBattle: Gola Mosca barely saw what hit him. [[spoiler:But then again, it was intentional]].
* CatchPhrase:
** "I'll bite you to death." An odd catch phrase that was made fun of in a splash page of the manga. After Hibari says this to Gola Mosca, Ryohei imagines him actually biting Mosca's head off.
** In the case of [[SuperDeformed Chibi]] Vampire Hibarin, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "I'll suck you to death"]].
* {{Determinator}}
** UnconsciousObjector: Continued to fight Mukuro even ''after'' losing consciousness.
* DevilInPlainSight: Though it's more that everyone is too terrified to take notice.
* DualTonfas
* GrapplingHookPistol: Has a grappling hook hidden in his tonfa.
* HatesBeingTouched: He will bite you to death if you crowd.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[spoiler:Handcuffs]], anyone?
* InLoveWithYourCarnage
* ItsAllAboutMe: It is indeed.
* JapaneseDelinquent
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Half carrying Gokudera to find Tsuna in Kokuyo Land, [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/katekyo_hitman_reborn/v09/c075/9.html how nice]] of him. Not! He ''literally'' throws Gokudera aside afterwards, and it turns out he only helped the latter so they could be "even". Let's not even get started on the countless times he turned up to kick enemy butt and then says "They were crowding".
* LackOfEmpathy
* LoyalAnimalCompanion: Hibird and his hedgehogs.
* LyricalDissonance: His song, Horizon, sounds a bit too upbeat to have lines like "I'll bite you to death."
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction
* [[MarriedToTheJob Married To The School]]
* MrFanservice
* NonchalantDodge: When Bel was throwing knives at him.
* OddFriendship: With Ryohei (though calling it 'friendship' is a stretch). Emphasised in the anime when they work together to protect Namimori.
* OneManArmy
* PetTheDog:
** His pets. Also, [[spoiler:his future self's efforts to save a dying Chrome.]]
** He did accept the chocolate I-Pin gave him without so much as a frown. In the anime he doesn't take the group's hard-earned summer festival cash because he sees that she's upset.
** When Tsuna was suffering from a Heroic BSOD, Hibari tells Tsuna that his face is boring and for Tsuna to watch Hibari's fight closely. For Hibari, this can be seen as his own way of attempting to cheer Tsuna up.
** During his battle with Adelheid, he says that Tsuna will "bite the sky, one day". Meaning that he knows that Tsuna will grow up to become very powerful.[[spoiler: Considering that TYL!Tsuna is one of the only people that TYL!Hibari respects due to ''losing'' to him, this means he's looking forward to the day when Tsuna is that strong.]]
** Anytime Hibari even ''minutely'' acknowledges the other protagonists as being strong [[SmugSuper at all]] counts.
* RedArmbandOfLeadership: Wherever he goes. It practically defines him.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: I-Pin only seems to be infatuated with Hibari because he looks like an older version of her master.
* SidekickExMachina
* SinkOrSwimMentor: His [[spoiler:Ten Years into the Future Self is this for Tsuna]].
* SmugSuper: Let's face it. He's not humble. At ''all''. And he's incredibly proud. The only thing is... he really ''does'' have the fighting genius and strength to back up his huge ego.
* SpoiledBrat: He expects everything he wants to go his way. And no one seems to discourage this attitude of his. It doesn't help that he pretty much has a hold on all the authority figures in charge.
* StudentCouncilPresident: He not only rules the school, he rules the whole town!
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* TokenEvilTeammate: He comes ''very'' close to being one. Really, his sole redeeming factors are his dedication to Namimori and his weak spot for cute animals.
* TsurimeEyes
* WeaksauceWeakness: Badass as he is, this guy can be taken down by ''cherry blossoms''. Even after he receives medication for it he doesn't like to talk about or be around sakura trees.
* [[spoiler: WhipItGood: His Vongola X Gear.]]
* WildCard: It's part of being the Cloud Guardian.

[[folder:Mukuro]]

!'''Mukuro Rokudo'''
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76475_2855.jpg]]
--> '''10th Vongola Mist Guardian (shared with Chrome)'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Toshinobu Iida

He's the trident wielding guy with a [[DarkAndTroubledPast Dark Past]] that you don't want to know about. In some completely lucky way, Mukuro has been reborn in all stages of hell, and remembers all of it. Due to that, he's gained MagicalEye powers and has been dead set on [[GrandTheftMe taking over]] Tsuna's body. But after [[FakingTheDead the]] [[FlawExploitation dirty]] [[InTheBack tactics]] [[CombatPragmatist failed]], [[DefeatMeansFriendship he ended up being employed in the job of being the guardian of the person who beat him]]. Nowadays, he spends his time in the head of a girl who looks just like him, occasionally [[GrandTheftMe dropping by]] to save the day... Or something.

----
* AHandfulForAnEye
* ActionFashionista
* AgentPeacock
* AnimeHair: His "pineapple" hairstyle. ''How'' do those spikes stay in place all the time?
* BadassLongcoat: His future self pulls this off in all its badassery.
* [[spoiler:BalefulPolymorph: While he ''can'' possess animals on his own accord, Mukuro's forced into his owl's body when D.Spade [[GrandTheftMe steals his]].]]
* BerserkButton:
** ''Don't'' compare his haircut to a pineapple while he's in earshot.
** A less comical example would be how much he hates to be controlled. According to him, it's the main reason he was so pissed off towards BigBad [[spoiler: Daemon Spade]] during the Inheritance Ceremony arc.
* BigDamnHeroes: For Chrome in the Future arc.
* {{Bishounen}}: His astounding semblance to Chrome should give you a hint.
* BladeOnAStick
* CombatPragmatist
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Kind of... sort of. At least [[MessianicArchetype Tsuna]] thinks so.
* DissonantSerenity
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: [[MessianicArchetype Tsuna]] forgives him a few months later after he tried killing Tsuna and all of his friends. And he didn't even apologize. Oh, and Lancia (who was [[GrandTheftMe possessed]] by Mukuro and killed all of his own friends) forgave him, too--for Tsuna's sake.]]
* EvilLaugh: Kufufufufu~
* EvilSoundsDeep: He has the deepest and most mature voice out all the Guardians.
* EyeScream
* FakingTheDead
* FightingDirty: Using every trick in the book... and then some.
* FlawExploitation
* GrandTheftMe: His plans for Tsuna as well as his main means of controlling his PeoplePuppets. [[spoiler: Also in a case of quite glorious {{irony}}, what he temporarily suffered courtesy of Daemon Spade.]]
* HeelFaceTurn
* HellBentForLeather: Aside from the Kokuyo uniform, he's rather fond of this.
* HellishPupils: ''One'', shape shifting hellish pupil.
* [[spoiler:HighClassGlass: Daemon Spade's Devil Lens which can see through illusions and find weak spots]]
* ISurrenderSuckers
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: His outfit changes every time he appears, but be assured it will feature at least three of the following: A pair of boots, a [[HellBentForLeather leather jacket]], a BadassLongCoat, stylish T-shirts, a pair of gloves (be they normal ones or [[FingerlessGloves fingerless ones]]), TooManyBelts, a necklace, earrings, etc..
* ImprovisedWeapon
* InTheBack: His favorite tactic.
* LackOfEmpathy: Although he does have his PetTheDog moments.
* {{Keigo}}: Although slightly less polite due to his use of [[JapanesePronouns boku, kimi, and occasionally omae.]]
* KnightOfCerebus
* ManipulativeBastard
* MasterOfIllusion: And thus he is the first pick for being the Mist Guardian.
* MeaningfulName: His name translates to "Six Paths Corpse". Fitting, no?
* MorphicResonance: Whenever Mukuro possesses his Box Owl, it gains his [[RedEyesTakeWarning red right eye]]. His most recent possesion of Mukurowl resulted in the bird somehow having his pineapple hair tuff as well.
* MrFanservice
* NietzscheWannabe: Changing the ugly world into a pure and beautiful sea of blood, starting a world war... he qualifies, no?
* NobleDemon
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Being the MagnificentBastard he is, during his first meeting with Tsuna, he pretends to be a poor, innocent boy who was kidnapped by... Rokudo Mukuro.
* PeopleJars: [[spoiler: As of Chapter 346, he's no longer one since he was freed by the Vindice themselves.]]
* PeoplePuppets: He controls them via GrandTheftMe.
* PetTheDog:
** He stayed behind so his cronies could escape after a failed prison break. He also appears to have great affection for [[MoralityPet Chrome]].
** His interaction with [[spoiler: TYE!Fran]] can also be seen as this.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: Type 2.
* PsychoticSmirk: Pretty much [[StepfordSmiler all the time.]]
* ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful
* ScrewYourself: By the circumstances, Chrome is technically Mukuro and Mukuro is technically Chrome.
** LookalikeLovers: Though once separated its closer to this.
* SidekickExMachina
* SignificantAnagram
* [[spoiler:SimpleStaff: His and Chrome's Vongola Gear, which enhances their illusions.]]
* StepfordSmiler: Even when [[EyeScream poking himself in the eye.]]
** He forces himself to smile even when he is clearly ''very'' [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/katekyo_hitman_reborn/v31/c348/5.html pissed off.]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* ThighHighBoots: A rare male example.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Subverted. He wants to destroy the mafia crime families.
* TsurimeEyes
* WildCard
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: In a pineapple hairstyle to boot.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He looks, sounds, and acts as if he were in his early twenties. He's '''15'''.

[[folder:Chrome]]

!'''Chrome Dokuro'''
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chrome_0_1478.jpg]]
--> '''10th Vongola Mist Guardian (shared with Mukuro)'''
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/SatomiAkesaka

She's [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the only girl in the group]], equipped with an [[BladeOnAStick infamous spear]] and [[EyepatchOfPower an ambiguous eyepatch]]. She reminds you of someone, right? Oh yeah, that guy with the [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]] who tried to [[GrandTheftMe possess]] Tsuna. Well, Chrome and Mukuro ''are'' pretty much one in the same; a packaged deal. [[ClingyJealousGirl Gokudera]] mistrusts her, especially after she stole away [[VirginityMakesYouStupid Tsuna's]] FirstKiss. She gets the sympathy for having [[NightmareFuel imaginary organs]]. Though she hasn't been given much of a chance, she's managed to prove herself competent in battle (her first appearence and her fight with Glo Xinia) and seems to be gaining confidence as the series progresses.

----
* BareYourMidriff: You can see her organs disappearing!
* BattleCouple: With Mukuro.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Chrome's illusions and beast summons can be [[NightmareFuel quite scary]].
* [[spoiler:BigDamnHeroes: In Chapters 382 & 383.]]
* BladeOnAStick: [[spoiler:What she uses after Mukuro was released and took his trident back.]]
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy]]
* CantLiveWithoutYou: Chrome is reliant on Mukuro to create/maintain her illusionary organs. [[spoiler:In the Future arc, she learns how to create them herself, but can only do so by using the Vongola Mist Ring, a fact that Daemon Spade has no qualms taking advantage of.]]
* TheChick
* [[spoiler:DeflectorShields: "Cortina Nebia", a mist barrier that is directly linked to Chrome's life. If it breaks, ''she'' breaks.]]
* EyepatchOfPower
* FauxActionGirl:[[spoiler: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]]. As it turns out, a good deal of the reason she relies so heavily on Mukuro is because she ''[[WillfullyWeak wants]] [[LivingEmotionalCrutch to]]''. Once she realizes that she'd rather be his equal and help protect him and their friends she upgrades to full out ActionGirl, shocking everyone with her skill.]]
* [[spoiler:GogoEnslavement: While not quite as fanservicy as the trope usually implies, Daemon's first order of business after he pulls a HypnotizeThePrincess on her is making her change into the Simon Middle School uniform.]]
* [[spoiler:HighClassGlass: Daemon Spade's Devil Lens which can see through illusions.]]
* [[spoiler:HypnotizeThePrincess: After trying to convince her to pull a FaceHeelTurn fails, Daemon decides to "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything punish]]" her.]]
* IllGirl: A good number of her organs are actually [[NightmareFuel illusions created by Mukuro]] to replace the ones she lost in a car accident.
* [[spoiler: LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Mukuro, by her own choice.]]
* LuminescentBlush
* MadLove: Of course Mukuro does seem to love her back in his own twisted way.
* MagicSkirt
* MasterOfIllusion: Although not as much of a master as Mukuro, that is, until [[TookALevelInBadass the Future arc]]. Mammon/Viper even complimented her skills in one of the recent chapters. As it turns out she is far more powerful than she lets on.
* [[spoiler: MindControlEyes]]
* MoralityPet: Plays this role for Mukuro.
* [[spoiler: NewTransferStudent: Chrome officially transfers into Namimori Middle School in Chapter 349.]]
* ParentalNeglect: Her mother and step-father barely even hesitate before deciding to leave her to die after her car crash. The dad is more concerned with his business meetings and the mom refuses to do an organ transplant on the grounds that she doesn't want her body chopped up for a child whom saving "[[KickTheDog just doesn't seem worth it.]]"
* ProngsOfPoseidon
* ShyBlueHairedGirl
* SignificantAnagram: Chrome (Kuromu) Dokuro... Mukuro Rokudo... hmmmm.... [[JustifiedTrope To be fair]], her name before meeting Mukuro was Nagi, meaning this was very much intentional.
* [[spoiler:SimpleStaff: Her and Mukuro's Vongola Gear which enhances their illusions.]]
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Amongst the guardians, at least.
* TaremeEyes
* TechnicolorEyes
* TookALevelInBadass:
** Her fight with Glo Xinia, when she manages to successfully create realistic illusions of Ken and Chikusa and an illusory body for Mukuro to take over instead of her.
** Chapter 383. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome That is all.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Chrome would rather let herself die than betray or be used against Mukuro.
* UnequalPairing: With Mukuro.
* WillfullyWeak: [[spoiler:It is revealed that part of the reason she is a FauxActionGirl is because she ''wants'' [[LivingEmotionalCrutch to rely on Mukuro]].]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: And of course, pineapple shaped!
* [[spoiler: ZettaiRyouiki: While wearing the Simon Middle School uniform, and what looks to be a Grade A too.]]
