Trivia: Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Tsuna, Fran, and Basil's voice actresses.
  • Dueling Shows: Averted, surprisingly this doesn't have one despite being a popular shonen series. It could be because there's no other series that has the same concept as this one.
  • Fan Nickname: Apparently, "Hibird" started as a fan nickname, but the author liked it so much it became canon. It's even lampshaded:
    Reborn: "Apparently, it's now called Hibird."
    Tsuna: "Who made up such a name?!"
    • Also, Bel's haters call him "Belwhore."
    • Mukuro is called Pineapple Hair for obvious reasons, "Mukuro-samba" (a play on "Mukuro-sama" and a reference to "Kufufu no Fu -- Boku to Keiyaku", where at a point he talks about getting trapped in an eternal samba. The thigh-high boots his TYL self wore are sometimes nicknamed "hooker boots".
  • Genre Shift: Katekyo Hitman Reborn! becomes an action series. This is not clear from the beginning. And the main character is still fighting with a pair of woolen mittens secreted by a shapeshifting chameleon long after the series stumbled into Serious Business territory. Magical pacifiers are also involved in the plot and are not played for laughs either.
    • Not to mention that the Italian mafia apparently hires magical baby hitmen to go train their future boss. Or that it's a common staple for mafia bosses to be able to fly around shooting flames out of their hands and save the world. Yeah.
    • Tetratrillions of worlds. So yeah...
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: I'm surprised this hadn't been explored upon.
    • A lot of KHR Seiyuus did, does or will voice Yu-Gi-Oh! characters.
    • Adult Lambo, Lampo, Romeo and Spanner are all Seto Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh!..
    • Giotto is Italy. The fandom has fun with this by giving the former the same signature Idiot Hair.
    • Oh, and Japan is Squalo. VOIIII!!
    • Kikyou's seiyuu, Kazuki Kato, is the singer for the sixth opening EASY GO.
    • Zakuro's voice actor is Shin Seijurou.
    • Nana Sawada was ''Sailor Venus in a previous life.
  • Name's the Same: Shamal the female doctor Shamal of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha.
  • The Other Darrin: In the anime, Dino was voiced by Kenta Kamakari, but after Episode 34 he was replaced by Kenn.
  • Playing Against Type: Kiuchi Hidenobu, whose more famous roles include the composed and usually taciturn Hei of Darker Than Black and the thoughtful, considerate hero of Dr. Tenma in Monster, plays Sasagawa Ryohei TO THE EXTREME!
  • Talking to Himself: Alaude the same voice actor as Hibari and Fon. Comes with looking very identical with each other...
    • Knuckle has the same voice actor as Ryohei.
