--> Voiced by: Neeko (Baby), Creator/KenNarita (Adult)

The entire series is [[CharacterTitle named after him]], so Reborn must be important, right? Mhm. He's a famous infant home tutor who's [[TheSpartanWay trained]]
and whipped [[ButtMonkey useless kids]] like Dino and Tsuna into becoming suitable bosses for [[TheMafia their families]]. Wait. How can an infant be the crowd of admiring classmates. But then greatest hitman in the ''entire'' world? He's really the Sun [[EnfanteTerrible Arcobaleno]], which also means he's [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld used to be an adult]] before he was beat by Tsuna, (unfortunately or not), CursedWithAwesome. He gets off on making [[BoomHeadshot flawless headshots]] 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 threatening people with those ''other'' people.
his [[TheGunslinger trusty gun]], or with his shapeshifting pet, Leon, depending on if you read the manga or watch the anime. Unlike the other males of the series who aren't already married, Reborn actually has ''women'' falling for him. He was the object of an AccidentalMarriage. And he's a ''baby''.


Added DiffLines:

* AffectionateNickname: Calls Nana "Maman" as a sign of respect to her. The girls usually call him "Reborn-chan" which he doesn't mind.
* AchillesInHisTent: Can't able to get out of the base thanks to the Non-Trinisette policy on the atmosphere.
* AnimeHair: While it usually can't be seen, Reborn has spiky hair to rival Tsuna's underneath that hat of his.
* AntiHero: Type IV. He's not above putting Tsuna's life in serious danger if that means making him stronger.
* BadassAdorable: Cutest SinkOrSwimMentor[=/=]hitman ever.
* BadassBaritone: In adult form, thanks to Creator/KenNarita.
* BadassBystander: Will just stand and give lots of exposition whenever there is a fight happening, since he is usually forbidden to fight due to circumstances (Ninth's orders, non-trinisette policy) As it is, if he did join a fight, it would have ended quickly.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Oh yes. Reborn's default outfit is a snazzy suit and he is said to be the strongest of the Arcobaleno. [[spoiler:His adult form is also an example.]]
* BerserkButton: Harming Yuni is this for him.
* BewareTheCuteOnes: ''Seriously.'' Even Haru finds him cute in an early chapter, but he will not hesitate to threaten to shoot someone if you piss him off.
* {{Bishonen}}: His adult form.
* BoomHeadshot: His M.O. He's so good at it that he was able to shoot Tsuna in the head while he was sucker punched by Xanxus in their fight..
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: When Tsuna fails to recognize [[spoiler:Reborn's adult form]], Reborn (who earlier claimed to have not seen the mysterious man) makes sure to point out that the man was cool.
* CassandraTruth: He actually mentions early on in the anime that he's an adult; Tsuna (justifiably) thinks he's just messing around.
* CatchPhrase: "Ciaossu". [[spoiler: Chaos, when an adult]].
* CharacterTitle: If you've been paying attention, you'll notice his name is the last word on the title. If you have ''not''... *CLAPCLAP* '''[[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation OI!!!]]
** SecondaryCharacterTitle: Somewhat. Even though Reborn is a major character, this is Tsuna's story, not his.
* CoolTeacher: To Yamamoto in the Future Arc (in stark contrast to the [[TheSpartanWay way]] he treats Tsuna and Dino).
* CursedWithAwesome: Was turned into an infant, but in exchange gained sweet new powers and a CoolPet.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: While Tsuna is the main protagonist of the series, Reborn is definitely the deuteragonist of the series, and one of the most recurring characters in both the manga and anime.
* DevilInPlainSight: Tsuna and Dino are the only ones able to tell how much of a MagnificentBastard he actually is.
* EnfanteTerrible: He's not actually an infant, but he's still a dangerous assassin and a ruthless mentor to Tsuna.
* TheGunslinger: From what little of his fighting was shown he seems to be both Type B (The Vaporizer) and C (The Woo). [[GunFu But mostly C.]]
* HatesBeingTouched: Physically harms Tsuna when he tries, and rebukes Haru's request for a hug. He doesn't mind when [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace Yamamoto]] does it, which Tsuna is annoyed by.
* HeadPet: Leon.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He always pushes Tsuna to succeed and never lets him give up. [[spoiler:Reborn meanwhile has long since given up on finding a cure for his curse. He even flat out orders Tsuna to ''not'' try to save him when it appears that he and the other Arcobaleno will die.]]
* [[SeniorSleepCycle Infant Sleep Cycle]]: He's often prone to falling at inconvenient times. But it's kinda implied that he uses sleep as a way to evade questions or force whoever he is tutoring to think or fight for themselves.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: His special attack "Chaos Shot" allows him to hit the opponent even after the bullet has been shot into the ground.
* IsThatWhatHeToldYou: Lots of miscommunications happen when reborn will explain things to other characters, to Tsuna's exasperation.
* MagicBullets: In Dying Will and Rebuke variety!
* ManipulativeBastard: Oh so much that you can chalk up anything happening with Tsuna and co as training by him.
* MasterOfDisguise: For [[PaperThinDisguise some reason]], no one but poor Tsuna can tell it's him.
* MayDecemberRomance: With Bianchi. And it works ''both ways!''
* MeaningfulName[[=/=]]MeaningfulRename: In his monologues, he was unable to accept his body when he got his curse so he took a long exile in order to accept it. In doing so, he asked Shamal to erase every existence of him. In a sense, this makes him ''"Reborn"'' in a new life.
* MrExposition: 80% of the plot exposition is given by him, after all.
* NiceHat
* NotSoStoic:
** He gets visibly angry and starts yelling at the Vindice when they reveal a clear pacifier; Tsuna notes that it's the first time he's ever seen Reborn so bothered.
** [[spoiler: When Daemon Spade begins to give Tsuna a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, Reborn actually becomes visibly panicky and nervous about Tsuna's well-being, even wanting to step forward and help Tsuna. The Vendicare prison guards tell him to back down, which results in him being angry that he can't help Tsuna.]]
* OddCouple: Paired up with [[HotBlooded Ryohei]] during the Inheritance Trials. He also has a close friendship with the more laid-back (and ''much'' nicer) Yamamoto.
* PaperThinDisguise: Tsuna almost tears his hair out for being the only one able to tell. [[spoiler:And then flipped when Reborn temporarily resumes his real form, as ''Tsuna'' is the only one who can't tell it's him.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To Tsuna. Reborn, spartan training and sadistic tendencies aside, did more to raise Tsuna over the course of the series (which, in-universe, is at most a ''year'') than Iemitsu ever did over the course of Tsuna's ''entire life''. Fanon frequently emphasizes this, canon lampshades it, and even the series' [[http://reborn.wikia.com/wiki/Reborn wiki]] points it out.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Reborn is the greatest hitman in the world yet he never kills anyone in the series. Furthermore, he never mentions his targets and is disgusted by the ruthless antics of Tsuna's enemies in spite of saying that he enjoyed his assignments with the Arcobaleno. Considering his profession...
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: [[spoiler: Temporarily turns back to normal in order to help Tsuna in the Representative Battle.]]
* SinkOrSwimMentor: What he was to Dino, and is now to Tsuna.
* ShipperOnDeck: Somewhat hints at this with Tsuna and Kyoko, he often forcibly tries to make Tsuna ask out or confess his feelings to Kyoko, with them usually failing. Even Tsuna's first use of Dying Will Mode was to ask out Kyoko.
* SniperPistol: Sometimes uses it when he is far away from the group.
* SnotBubble: When he sleeps. He even exploits it with a fake one to make Tsuna think he's fallen asleep after Tsuna tells him that [[spoiler:he doesn't intend to let him die]]. Kind of puts all those times where he conveniently falls asleep (notably when [[LethalChef Bianchi]] wants him to eat something) into perspective.
* TheSpartanWay: Poor Tsuna and Dino.
* TeamDad: Lampshaded by Colonnello in Chapter 378. Ironically, he seems to be better at being Tsuna's dad than [[DisappearedDad Iemitsu.]]
* TrainingFromHell: His favorite way of training Tsuna and Dino, even in non combat situations to the point that both flinch when the word ''training'' is said by him.
* TricksterMentor: More noticeable in the earlier chapters, where he intentionally stirs up trouble for Tsuna and company as a way of training him, much to Tsuna's des
* TriggerHappy: Will threaten to shoot Tsuna if he complains about anything. The same with Dino.
* UndyingLoyalty: To the Ninth Vongola Boss, and its said that Reborn is the Ninth's most trusted hitman.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Type 1 with Colonello; they regularly argue, headbutt each other, and deny that they're close, which Tsuna chalks up to them being childhood friends.

* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: He's supposed to be the 10th Generation Vongola Boss (against his will, of course), but he's only 14, and is very scrawny and rather [[ButtMonkey pathetic looking.]] A lot of people say variations of this phrase, and find it generally hard to believe. Interestingly enough, this phrase isn't explicitly said by Spanner, but implied when he gets Tsuna some prisoner clothes, and remarks in surprise and exasperation that even size small is too big for him.

* FatalFlaw: His indecisiveness and lack of resolution to fight had been called out many times by other characters as he needs to step up and be confident as the next boss of the Vongola Family. This is the reason why Reborn is usually harsh on him, forcing him to fight and try to control a situation by himself.

** Discussed in his fight against [[spoiler: Daemon Spade, as he thinks that Tsuna doesn't have the heart to lead the Vongola that he always envisioned and cites this as the reason he wants to kill him. Reborn counters that this exact trait of his is what led to the other guardians and former enemies to follow him as he always thinks of others before

* 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.

* TheParanoiac: Present Gokudera meets the requirements for this trope as Tsuna's self-proclaimed right hand- he tends to hold grudges (particularly against Yamamoto and their former enemies regardless of how much they've proven themselves), is constantly suspicious of ''everyone'' they meet (and spends a lot of the early arcs convinced Yamamoto wants his place as Tsuna's right hand man), is a jerk to just about anyone who isn't Tsuna, fulfils the "clingy" aspect of the fifth point and expects others to listen to him because he's Tsuna's right-hand, and holds self-importance, again as Tsuna's right hand, something Yamamoto calls him out on. That's criteria points 2-6 that he meets. He's also got the HairTriggerTemper and recklessness associated with the trope, as well as being the quickest to resort to violence. In fact, part of his Inheritence Test was G calling him out on most of these points.

** FridgeLogic: he stops smoking during the Ten Year Later arc, when he and the others [[spoiler: were stuck underground in a bunker for long stretches of time.]] Probably had to give it up out of necessity.

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]].

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: He changes between foolish and responsible to his half-sister Bianchi depending if the situation is comedic or not. But in the future, he is the foolish one to Bianchi's responsible one, thanks to his hotheadedness and stubbornness.



* UsedToBeASweetKid: Oh so much. He was SpoiledSweet by his father and half sister Bianchi as shown in his flashbacks and quite respectful to everyone. But after learning that his mother died in an ''accident'' and that he is a bastard of the family, he ran away from home to be a freelance hitman. He certainly lost his sweetness after being rejected in the mafia world too many times.



* Keet: Always has a cheerful disposition and a smile that can wipe away any doubts.

to:

* Keet: {{Keet}}: Always has a cheerful disposition and a smile that can wipe away any doubts.



* OneNoteCook: He can make delicious sushi as he helps out his father with his business, but revealed that cant make anything else as shown in the future arc.

* ShooOutTheClowns: It's noteworthy to point out that he did not participate in the representative battle and against [[Jager and Checkerface]] as the stakes are really high and there is no reason for him to be pushed into battle anyways.

to:

* ShooOutTheClowns: It's noteworthy to point out that he did not participate in the representative battle and against [[Jager [[spoiler: Jager and Checkerface]] as the stakes are really high and there is no reason for him to be pushed into battle anyways.



* DeathGlare: Can certainly give a scary one when he is fighting an opponent.



* SenpaiKohai: To the other guardians. Tsuna and Yamamoto certainly respect him, calling him "Oni-san" and "Senpai" respectively. Gokudera does not, which often leads to fights between them.



* ShipperOnDeck: Not so much noticeable as he is very protective of Kyoko, but he doesn't mind Tsuna's crush with Kyoko wherein he will try to scare anyone else who gets close to her.



* VitriolicBestBuds: With Gokudera and Hibari,although it's one sided on his part.



* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler: His ten year later self was the only one aside from Shouichi to know about Future Tsuna's plans to defeat Byakuran, much to everyone else's shock.]]



* SleepyHead: If he is not taking patrols or fighting enemies, then he is seen usually asleep on top of his beloved school. And if he is with other people, then he will step to the side and sleep until everyone is gone. He even fell asleep during [[Daemon Spades's MotiveRant]]

* AlwaysInClassOne: Enforced by Reborn, as shown in a chapter where everyone was split apart and moved to different classrooms and he was able to convince the Principal to let the students choose their rooms.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Every time a Guardian fights in a tournament , expect them to get this and some CharacterDevelopment, save for [[StaticCharacter Hibari]] who doesn't need it to be awesome.



* TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential: Combined with TrainingFromHell to boot!



* AdaptationalWimp: Thanks to the anime stretching out episodes, some scenes of Tsuna freaking out and complaining even more than what he is actually doing in the manga are added. A good example is the time where he has to put on the contacts made by Spanner. While in the manga he puts in on immediately and complain that it's blurry, the anime has him freaking out of the idea of putting it in the span of ''three'' episodes.



* BigBrotherWorship: Certainly looks up to Dino and admires him for his skills, even going to him for advice. And as well to Ryohei, for his tenancy and the fact that he is Kyoko's big brother.



* AsleepInClass: Which usually gets him in trouble.



* [[InLoveWithYourCarnage In Love With Tsuna's Carnage]]

to:

* [[InLoveWithYourCarnage In Love With InferioritySuperiorityComplex: His [[GreenEyedMonster treatment]] of [[TheAce Yamamoto]] and to the lesser extent, the other guardians, can be boiled down to this. He always tries to outdo anyone who he thinks is stronger or better than him and tries to put down other's achievements, but deep down, he knows that he is not good enough and is afraid that Tsuna will rely on others than him.
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: Only when Tsuna goes into dying will mode and defeats Gokudera does he drops his accusations of Tsuna being a weak loser and take to the idea of Tsuna being the tenth Vongola boss... and he becomes quite determined to be
Tsuna's Carnage]]right hand man.



* ThoseTwoGuys: Shares this with Yamamoto, where they are usually shown to be together, much to his irritation.



* CloudCuckoolander: Downplayed but sometimes the characters questions his sanity and his way of thinking.



* ThoseTwoGuys: Shares this with Gokudera, where they are usually shown to be together.



* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: If he defeats someone by blind luck, expect him to gloat out loud that ''Lambo-sama'' is the best hitman of them all.



* AttentionWhore: Will try to attract everyone's attention with his shiny grenade launchers and toys. If neglected, then he will start throwing bombs everywhere, and usually follows with a visit of his future self.



* TheLoad: He is a ''five year old'' kid forced into battles that are way over his abilities, forcing other characters to defend him from being hurt. It doesn't help that he is a BoisterousWeakling that doesn't understand the situation he is in, making the situation even more complicated. Tsuna understandably doesn't want him to participate, but Reborn forces the poor kid to fight anyways since he is the official Lightning Guardian.



* NoIndoorVoice: Has quite a loud and annoying voice and he never seems to shut up in all of his scenes.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Shares this with I-pin. While the Arcobalenos have infant bodies, at least they have identifiable adult features. Lambo on the other hand, is drawn in a simplistic style and his body shape can be compared to a broccoli. It's very jarring to see him in promotional artworks where everyone is looking pretty and he is just there.



* OvershadowedByAwesome: Did not really take any training in order to improve himself and most of his fights are done by his future counterpart or won either by luck.
* PluckyComedyRelief: His annoying tendencies and antics with the others are usually the main source of comedy.



* ShooOutTheClowns: It's noteworthy to point out that he did not participate in the representative battle and against [[Jager and Checkerface]] as the stakes are really high and there is no reason for him to be pushed into battle anyways.



* TearsOfFear: Whenever he finally realizes his situation.



* WithCatLikeTread: Tries to kill Reborn, but does not even bother to learn the meaning of ''stealth''.



* {{Bishounen}}

to:

* {{Bishounen}}BigDamnHeroes: Saves Chrome after her fight with Glo Xina and is the one who brought her to the Vongola Base.
* BirdsOfAFeather: With his fellow classmate Aoba Kouyou, to the point that both have similar outlooks in life and have same level of intelligence.



* DumbIsGood: Quite dumb, but is one of the nicest person in the cast.



* GoodScarsEvilScars: Crossing his left eyebrow.

to:

* GoodScarsEvilScars: Crossing his left eyebrow. It's a scar from the time he defended Kyoko from his bullies.



* HeroicBuild: Has the most muscular build of all the guardians. Fitting as he is a boxer-in-training.



* LightningBruiser: He's fast and can keep up with Lussuria, who is a trained Muay Thai practitioner. And he can hit really hard as well where walls will feel nothing but paper to him.
* MadeOfIron: It's actually part of being the Sun Guardian, as he needs to be able to protect others with his body. He shrugged off crashing into a wall with a motorbike travelling at high speed. And was able to take Colonnello's memory bullet, which Iemitsu points out that has a 90% chance of killing the target.



* PowerFist: His main attacks are variations of boxing techniques that is powered by the sun flames. Although he doesnt even need the flames in order to overpower enemies.

to:

* InLoveWithYourCarnage: Admires Tsuna's fighting skills when he is in Hyper Dying Will mode. If he's not in the mode, then he ignores the poor guy. It's shown even more in the Varia arc, as he hopes that the battle between Xanxus and Tsuna will awaken the latter's instincts.



* SleepyHead: If he is not taking patrols or fighting enemies, then he is seen usually asleep on top of his beloved school. And if he is with other people, then he will step to the side and sleep until everyone is gone. He even fell asleep during [[Daemon Spades's MotiveRant]]



* TheWorfEffect: With his first fight with Mukuro. He is still under the effect Shamal's Trident Mosquito and Mukuro took advantage of this, creating illusions of cherry blossom flowers that crippled him and rendered him unable to fight.



* InLoveWithYourCarnage: Has signs of this with Tsuna after his defeat, as he keeps a close eye of his growth via Chrome and claims that he will take over his body many times, even if he is able to do that with ''literally everone else.''
** For example, in chapter 385 he's shown looking quite pleased when he sees Tsuna defeat a foe and remarks that "He's gotten even stronger."
