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 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 (unfortunately or not), CursedWithAwesome. He gets off on making [[BoomHeadshot flawless headshots]] and threatening people with 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''.

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 greatest hitman in the ''entire'' world? He's really the Sun Storm [[EnfanteTerrible Arcobaleno]], which Arcobaleno]] from China, Fon is usually seen in the anime in the form of I-Pin's [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies stuffed version of him]]. He is her master, after all. His appearance also means he's explains her [[SatelliteLoveInterest deep crush for Hibari]]: Fon and Hibari are virtually twins... Well, at least when Fon [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld used to be an adult]] before he was (unfortunately or not), CursedWithAwesome. He gets off on making [[BoomHeadshot flawless headshots]] and threatening people with his [[TheGunslinger trusty gun]], or with his shapeshifting pet, Leon, depending on if you read an adult]]. The only difference would be that the manga or watch the anime. Unlike the other males holder of the series who aren't already married, Reborn red pacifier actually smiles, and has ''women'' falling for him. He was a long braid. One thing they ''do'' have in common that's not looks is that they both have [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys cute pets]].

[[spoiler:In Haru Haru Interview 28, Volume 31, Fon heavily implies, if not outright confirms, that he and Hibari are related somehow. However, he stops himself from saying anything further as Hibari 'might get angry'. (Although Fon does confirm that
the object of an AccidentalMarriage. And he's a ''baby''.two are not brothers, at the very least).]]



* 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.

After Luche's death, she's replaced by her [[GenerationXerox daughter]] Aria, who is pretty similar to her in looks and personality. Of course, this doesn't exempt her from the [[BlessedWithSuck Sky Arcobaleno curse]]. We only see her in the first filler arc before being PutInABus that [[BusCrash crashes in the future.]] That sucks, but at least she was able to have [[IdenticalGrandson Yuni.]] Oh, and she was the Giglio Nero boss before it merged with the Gesso family to become the Millefiore. And she is quite the looker too, as Gamma is shown to have an unrequited crush on her.

to:

* MadeOfIron: He tanks a supremely high amount of damage [[spoiler:protecting Enma during the Curse of the Rainbow arc]]. He also survives [[spoiler:getting his head essentially harpooned by Bermuda]], with even the other Arcobaleno acknowledging that he'd be dead if not for his immortality. No explanation for this apparent immortality has yet been given.


* LivingEmotionalCrutch: A very downplayed version of this for Belphegor. Bel seems to be on friendlier terms with Mammon and usually more playful and stable around them. Cue to Timeskip arc, where Mammon is gone, Bel is definitely more hostile, especially to Fran, the mist guardian replacement, often lashes out on him and forces to wear frog hat in memory of his lost friend.

* BandagedFace: They always have their faces bandaged. As for what they look like underneath them, well...


* 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.

to:

* {{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.]]

%%* BadassAdorable

to:

to:

* 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.
