Characters: Katekyo Hitman Reborn Protagonists

This is a listing of the protagonists of Katekyo Hitman Reborn!. YMMV items and subjectives go in the YMMV page for the series. For the main character sheet see here. Contains unmarked spoilers.

Tsunayoshi "Tsuna" Sawada

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

His brow ever furrowed, he holds his fists up as in prayer... That is the Vongola Decimo.

Hayato Gokudera

At first, it seemed as if Gokudera was just your average, foreign delinquent. He even came equipped with you standard-issue cigarettes and the crowd of admiring classmates. But then he was beat by Tsuna, and of course, Defeat Means Friendship, so he started his pursuit of being the "Tenth's" right hand man. This didn't mean that 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.

Takeshi Yamamoto

You're a baseball star. The jock. Everyone loves and admires you. How could your life get any better? Give the kid a sword, and make that sword a katana, then 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 by looking, because it's always sunny in Yamamotoville. The kid's been a constant, and welcome presence in Tsuna's family. And with a little help, he's taken more levels in badass than anyone else. Gokudera hates him.

  • Badass Normal
  • Beware the Nice Ones: When this guy gives even the smallest of frowns, get the fuck out.
  • BFS
  • Big Damn Heroes: 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
  • Cool Bike: Cool Airbike? No!...
  • Cool Pet: Two of them!
  • Cool Sword
  • Dual Wielding: And triple wielding, and quadruple wielding... Swords Akimbo.
  • Failed a Spot Check: "Oh, are you playing Mafia again? This looks fun, let me join in!"
  • Fan of Underdog
  • Friendly Enemy: With Squalo. Yamamoto 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 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 a 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. He also become Yamamoto's teacher later on.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: In the future.
  • Hard Work Fallacy: He nearly tried to kill himself over it early in the manga, but Tsuna talked him out of it.
  • Interrupted Suicide: Thank you, Tsuna. You stopped him from killing himself over a broken arm. Well, in the manga.
  • Katanas Are Just Better
  • Kicking Your Sword Always Works: Shigure Soen Ryu 3rd Stance: Yarazu no Ame (Last Minute Rain)
  • Making a Splash: Uses the water around him in most fights to boost his Shigure Soen Ryu techniques. Makes sense since he is the rain attribute.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • My Kung-Fu Is Stronger Than Yours: Shigure Soen Ryu, all the way.
  • Nice Guy: Try insanely nice guy.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: In direct conflict with Gokudera's Hates Being Touched.
  • One Head Taller: Than most of the cast.
  • Razor Wind: 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)).
  • Signature Move: Shigure Soen Ryu 8th Stance Shinotsuku Ame (Pelting Rain).
  • Sorry I'm Late: Said those very words. Twice.
  • Spam Attack: 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.
  • Stepford Smiler: Shows signs of being this at times. Fanon usually takes such subtleties and runs with 'em for all they're worth.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • Time Stands Still: Not really, but his Aggregate Art: Jiunoka's (Rainy Metamorphosis) tranquil power is so intense anyone caught in it stands completely still.
  • The Lancer
  • The Pollyanna: 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.
  • Took Many, Many Levels In Badass


Lambo is a Five Year Old Assassin that came from Italy. He has a habit of pulling weapons out of his 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 Nonchalant Dodge and Non-Fatal Explosions. In spite of the constant defeat, it doesn't equal friendship. Just a visit from Mr. Future Self.

Ryohei Sasagawa

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 some kind of extreme logic to his madness. He seems to always be trying to recruit Tsuna into his extreme boxing club. He's just not taking no for an answer.

Kyouya Hibari

Congratulations. You're the Student Council President of the Absurdly Powerful Student Council. You can get away with ''anything''. You even have that Red Armband Of Leadership. Hey, Wait!, that's not you. That's Hibari. The Curb-Stomp Battle personified. He will be In Love with Your Carnage, so don't fight anywhere near him and his Automatically Violent self. Violent to anything and everything other than his Cute Critters, whom he won't attack even if they pierce his hand. Remember, don't piss him off or he will "bite you to death."

Mukuro Rokudo

He's the trident wielding guy with a 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 Magical Eye powers and has been dead set on taking over Tsuna's body. But after the dirty tactics failed, 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 dropping by to save the day... Or something.

Chrome Dokuro

She's the only girl in the group, equipped with an infamous spear and an ambiguous eyepatch. She reminds you of someone, right? Oh yeah, that guy with the blue hair who tried to possess Tsuna. Well, Chrome and Mukuro are pretty much one in the same; a packaged deal. Gokudera mistrusts her, especially after she stole away Tsuna's First Kiss. She gets the sympathy for having 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.
