[[Creator/HirokiTakahashi Superbi Squalo]] is Katsuya Jonouchi, the [[Creator/KenjiroTsuda adult]] and [[Creator/JunkoTakeuchi child]] forms of Lambo are respectively Seto and Mokuba Kaiba, [[Creator/RyoNaitou Ken Joshima]] is Ryuji Otogi, [[Creator/DaisukeNamikawa Giotto]] is Ryota Kajiki, Lal Mirch is "Ghost" Kotsuzuka, XANXUS is Hasan, and [[Creator/RieTanaka Hibird]] is Vivian Wong.


* NoDubForYou: The series was never picked up for a dub.

Added DiffLines:

* NoDubForYou: The series was never picked up for a dub.
* NoExportForYou: The localized manga went as far as the near the first half of the future arc before stopping due to low sales, leaving the rest of the series untranslated.


** Creator/ToshiyukiToyonaga voices both Kakimoto Chikusa and Irie Shouichi.
** Meanwhile, Toshinobu Iida voices Mukuro Rokudo and Mochida.



* ColbertBump: While the series is extremely popular in its home country and some parts of the west (and the yaoi fangirls), it is through the video games ''VideoGame/JumpSuperStars'' and ''VideoGame/JStarsVictoryVS'' that most people come across Tsuna and the series. Hell, Tsuna is even one of the most requested characters in the ''VideoGame/JumpForce'' as DLC.



** Apparently, "Hibird" started as a fan nickname, but the author liked it so much it became canon. It's even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]]:

** Mukuro is called Pineapple Hair for [[AnimeHair obvious reasons]], "Mukuro-samba" (a play on [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics "Mukuro-sama"]] and a reference to [[ImageSong "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".

The thigh-high boots his TYL self wore are sometimes nicknamed "hooker boots". Also in Fandom, Mukuro is "Perverted Pineapple" for obvious reasons concerning Tsuna and everybody else he's ever attacked. His assigned number does not help either.
*** Used by Flan... Mukuro does NOT like it.


Added DiffLines:

** Tuna-Tsuna. Apparently the cast is very fishy, since we also have Squalo(Italian for "Shark"), "Octupus Head"(Ryohei's Canon Nickname for Gokudera), and of course Yamamoto's sushi restaurant.
*** Vongola is Italian for "Clam"
** Mukurou-Glo Xinia's owl box weapon that is possessed by Mukuro. A "u" is added to differentiate between the two.
** Let's not forget the number/letter code. Usually used for shipping. The Reborn Wiki [[http://reborn.wikia.com/wiki/Fandom_Shorthands has an extensive list]] if you get confused.


Added DiffLines:

* SailorEarth: Since the series only focuses on the top mafia alliances and the Vongola is noted to have lots of enemies, one can easily whip up their own family. Make up some Italian-like name, then fill it with many original characters and assign them their flame properties, and ''viola!'' you have your own Mafia Famiglia.
** Actually having more than seven rings and seven colors was sorta canon, as said in one of the games, but there was a specific reason why the topic of an eighth ring isn't touched upon. [[spoiler: It's the Flame of the Night, which only the Vindice can touch upon. And it seems to be so powerful that Daemon Spade thought that if he had it, he could beat the combined forces of Earth and Sky.]]
** Since one canon character has a power over parallel universes, one can even an entire new universe made of original characters.


* ActingForTwo:
** More like acting for four, Creator/KenjiroTsuda voices TYL!Lambo and his adult counterpart, Spanner, Lampo and Romeo (Bianchi's ex-boyfriend).
** Creator/TakashiKondo voices Hibari, Alaude and Fon. Funny since all of them look alike.
** Creator/HidenobuKiuchi voices boxing lovers Knuckle and Ryohei.
* AmateurCast: The main characters are voiced by relatively unknown or amateur voice actors at the time of airing, which is pretty obvious in the first episodes. Contrast that to some of the side characters, who has been voiced by seasoned voice characters like Creator/KenjiroTsuda and Creator/DaisukeNamikawa.



* PortmanteauSeriesNickname: The series's full title is ''Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn!'' but fans shorten it to ''Katekyo Hitman Reborn!'', ''KHR'' or simply ''Reborn!''



** Alaude the same [[Creator/TakashiKondo voice actor]] as Hibari and Fon. Comes with looking very identical with each other...

--> '''Reborn:''' "Apparently, it's now called ''Hibird.''"
--> '''Tsuna:''' "Who made up such a name?!"
** Also, Bel's haters call him "Belwhore."

* GenreShift: ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' [[GenreShift 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 SeriousBusiness 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.
** [[spoiler:''Tetratrillions'' of worlds]]. So yeah...

** Giotto is [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Italy]]. The fandom has fun with this by giving the former the same signature IdiotHair.
