Gokudera's older half-sister. She uses "poison cooking" as her main weapon. Also in love with Reborn. Subsequently also a complete badass.

Voiced by: Rie Tanaka

  • Action Girl: If she wanted to, Bianchi could kill pretty much everyone.
  • Animal Motifs: Associated with scorpions, with her Red Baron and Box Weapons.
  • Berserk Button: Poor TYL!Lambo. Every time she sees his face, she goes on a berserk rage and tries to kill him for looking like her ex-boyfriend Romeo.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She's quite out there and is usually making trouble for Tsuna and friends thanks to her poison cooking. But there is a reason why she is still feared in the mafia world as she is capable of poisoning almost anyone without them ever knowing about it.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Gokudera in the Future Arc, combined with Big Sister Bully. Reborn even remarks that they don't really get along while training him, but Bianchi insists on seeing his training through to the end.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Runs in the family.
  • Cool Big Sis: To both Kyoko and Haru, who certainly look up to her. Not so much to her half-brother Hayato, who gets sick at the sight of her and wants nothing to do with her half of the time.
  • Demoted to Satellite Love Interest: She started off as a pretty capable hitman who could turn everything into poison. But she was also the titular Hitman Tutor's lover, and by the Future Arc she is reduced to an older sister figure for the girls.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: She is certainly both to her brother, depending on the situation. More noticeable in the Future Arc, where she is the responsible one to Gokudera's foolish and ditzy antics.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Subverted. She wears them to prevent Gokudera fainting in her presence.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: In chapter 13 Bianchi is trying to gun down Adult Lambo and Reborn remarks that the bullets could end up flying anywhere.
  • Lethal Chef: Every food that she makes automatically turns into poison cooking. Tsuna has to find ways to remove her from the kitchen all the time.
  • Love Freak: She spouts off about love all time and always gives unnecessary love advice to Tsuna regarding Kyoko. And almost all her actions at the start of the story are for the sake of Reborn.
  • Mad Love: Accent on 'mad' from Reborn. Amusingly enough, this is a trait that she shares with her brother, who is certainly and extremely devoted to his boss.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: With Reborn, and in both ways actually.
  • Only One Name: Her last name is never revealed. Which is weird since she and Hayato are siblings through her father's side, which means that they should have the same last name. It's unknown if she shares the same last name or if Hayato changed his.
  • Poisonous Person: To the point where anything she touches can turn into poison cooking, just ask M.M.
  • Put on a Bus: Completely disappears after the future arc, and returns with a few cameos in the Arcobaleno Arc.
  • Red Baron: "Poison Scorpion" Bianchi.
  • Rejection Affection: Reborn certainly doesn't return her feelings, yet she never notices it and fawns over him all the time.
  • Shipper on Deck: To both Tsuna and Kyoko. She sets the two up from time to time for her own amusement and to help Tsuna try to get closer to her. Especially in the Future arc, where she lied that Kyoko ran away again in order to make Tsuna chase her and tell her the truth himself.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: To her brother in the Future Arc. Justified since he is going to be participating in a mission that has a 99% chance of failing.
  • Unknown Rival: Regards Yamamoto as her rival in cooking, but he doesn't really know how to cook save for sushi.
  • Yandere: ...And is willing to eliminate every person who has 'bad influence' on him.
    • Not to mention how her ex-boyfriend apparently died of food poisoning...

She is an assassin from Hong Kong, and speaks in nothing but Chinese. Even though this 5-year-old little girl can't speak Japanese, the 15-year-old "Adult I-Pin" eventually enters a Japanese college, and despite the fact that she is one of the most promising young assassins, she works part-time at a Chinese restaurant ten years later. She has a crush on Kyoya Hibari, who looks like her teacher. During times of extreme stress, she will latch onto the nearest person, and a clock will appear on her head, when it reaches zero, there is an explosion like a bomb.

Voiced by: Li Mei Chan

  • Action Girl: She can kick ass as her five-year-old self, and her future self is no slouch even if she did give up her fighting ways.
  • Big Brother Worship: To Tsuna, where she certainly thinks of him as her older brother even in the future.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Has such horrible vision that she mistakes a dojo sign for a chopping board and mistakes Lambo early on as a broccoli monster. Unfortunately, she can't wear glasses because she doesn't have ears to put them on.
  • Chinese Girl: Your stereotypical Chinese girl, complete with accent.
  • Cute Bruiser: She's cute and can effortlessly lift up adults thrice her size with her Gyoza Kenpo techniques.
  • Enfante Terrible: In her first appearance, where she is trying to kill Tsuna due to a misunderstanding
  • Eyes Always Shut: Present self only.
  • Improbable Age: Like Lambo, she's a five-year-old hitman.
  • Little Miss Badass: In her TYL! form, where she can even kick ass while studying algebra.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is the Japanese term for the 1-Coins mahjong tile ("I" being mahjong parlance for 1 and "pin" being short for pinzu, mahjong parlance for the Coins suit). This ties into her "Pinzu-Timed Super Explosion" ability — the countdown on her forehead goes through all nine of the pinzu tiles.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Her present self. Lampshaded in the manga: When asked why she doesn't wear glasses, she notes it's because she lacks ears.
  • Precocious Crush: Has a huge crush Hibari, where she gets embarrassed enough to activate her Pinzu bomb. Although it's explained that she likes him due to looking like her master Fon.
  • Samus Is a Girl: In her first appearance when she was hit by the ten-year-bazooka and was revealed as a cute Chinese girl.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Her TYL form.
  • Shrinking Violet: The reason why she's a literal Tyke Bomb. She grows out of it though, thanks to her joining the Family.
  • Tyke Bomb: Literally, thanks to her ability to turn into a bomb when embarrassed. She is called the human bomb for a reason.
  • You No Take Candle: In the anime, she speaks broken Japanese, but still understandable unlike in the manga where her words are actually written as ''scribbles''.

Dr. Shamal
A womanizer who hits on every beautiful woman he sees. Though he is often unsuccessful, he is always seen hitting on one woman and then instantly moves on to hit on the next woman that passes by him. Surprisingly, putting aside his normal lecherous attitude, Shamal happens to be a notorious assassin called "Trident Shamal", and is also a renowned doctor, but he refuses to treat men. He uses trident mosquitoes to infect his targets with deadly illnesses. Since he contracts viruses and diseases easily, he carries 666 pills that contain mosquitoes infected with deadly diseases. He claims to be infected with all 666 diseases but is not dead because all of the diseases negate each other. He was also once asked to join the Varia but refused.

Voiced by: Toshinobu Katsuya

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Bianchi and most women that he hits on certainly thinks so. It's not that his looks are abhorrent, but it's his personality that turns them off. Turned around when he saw Longchamp's girlfriends in the bowling chapter, where he thinks of them as monsters instead.
  • Accidental Kiss: With Tsuna, much to his dismay.
  • Artistic License – Biology: The logical basis for his treatment of illnesses is, to say the least, illogical. Not only do polar opposite illnesses not exist (especially considering secondary symptoms), but suffering from two or more conditions only complicates the job of natural defenses and ultimately allows for either pathogen to succeed in affecting the patient.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Guess what? He's a top-ranked assassin!
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He may be a perverted doctor, but he is skilled enough that he was invited to be part of the Varia before the story.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Haru from bird's twins after they are taken hostage by the latter in the Kokuyo Arc.
  • Blush Sticker
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Sure, he looks like a perverted womanizing doctor that only treats women. However, once he gets serious...
  • The Casanova: Certainly acts like one, unfortunately for him no woman is ever interested in him.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Quite the pervert, but has saved the girls in secret many times without any thanks given to him. He even teaches Gokudera using really perverted terms to get his point across.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Trying to hurt girls while he's around is a bad idea. Birds' henchman found this out the hard way.
  • Cynical Mentor: To Gokudera, ever since he abandoned him after his student became careless with bombs.
  • Deadly Doctor: He kills people by infecting them with terminal illnesses from his special mosquitoes.
  • Dr. Jerk: To men, who are unfortunately the majority of his patients in the story. But he will treat them if the situation is serious or if he pities them enough to make him heal them.
  • Handsome Lech: Handsome and lecherous to every single woman in the story.
  • Have I Mentioned That I Am Heterosexual Today: He only cures women. He thinks that with men, spitting in their face and leaving them alone is enough.
  • Implausible Deniability
  • I Need to Go Iron My Dog: In the Bowling Chapter.
    Shamal: "Sorry, my ESP just told me that I have an emergency patient coming in."
    Tsuna: "Stop Lying!"
  • Made of Iron: Can take hits to the face from Hibari with no ill effects, and shrug off Bianchi's Poison Cooking.
  • Minored In Ass Kicking
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: He uses terminal diseases to kill his targets without them knowing about it.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Also known as "Trident" Shamal, the genius hitman and super first class dark doctor.
  • Number of the Beast: His 666 Trident Mosquitoes.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Always maintains his lecherous personality, but he has been shown to be observant, as he was able to see through Belphegor and Mammon's disguises in a filler arc.
  • Perma-Stubble: Sports a five-o-clock shadow along with his unkempt appearance.
  • Put on a Bus: He was a fairly consistent character, especially in the Ring Battles. However, he hasn't been heard from since.
  • Red Baron: "Trident" Shamal.

Fuuta de la Stella
A young boy who ranks people by their abilities in a book half his own height. He has an extremely wide range of knowledge on thousands of people and is considered to be a valuable informant for the Mafia, sometimes being paid insane amounts of money for a copy of certain rankings, but due to this, he is often chased by the Mafia. When he ranks people, gravity around him becomes distorted, making objects around him float, and images of stars and galaxies appear in his eyes. It is unknown how he actually gathers his information, but his rankings do become skewed when it rains. He also has to be looking at the person to determine their rankings. He calls Tsuna his big brother and starts living in his house. In the future, after gathering information with Bianchi, Fuuta, who now carries a suitcase rather than a book, returns to Japan with crucial information about the Millefiore Family. Fuuta also reveals that he was Lambo's guardian until three years before Tsuna's arrival in the future, and prefers that Lambo not be endangered.

Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei

Kawahira is a character who is mentioned to be a frequent customer of the ramen shop where Future I-Pin works. Due to the Ten-Year Bazooka, Kawahira always gets his ramen with soggy noodles. An ally during the Future arc, but also an antagonist during the Curse of the Rainbow arc as Checker Face.

Voiced by: Masaya Matsukaze


Namimori residents

    Nana Sawada 
Nana Sawada
She is Tsuna's mother, who, despite caring deeply for him, has little belief in her son succeeding in life: She does not expect him to get into a good college, tends to have outbursts claiming that her son is a loser, is eternally grateful for Haru wanting to be his girlfriend despite how pathetic he is in her eyes, etc. She helps feed all of the people that are presently living in her house and does not see anything strange with any of them. In the future, she was revealed to be on vacation with her husband in Italy when the Millefiore Family attacked the Vongola Headquarters; her current condition is unknown.

Voiced by: Rica Fukami

  • Abusive Parents: Although she does love Tsuna, she definitely doesn't really care enough about his future or his self-esteem to count as a good parent (including not doing anything about his truancy or poor grades, and constantly belittling him in front of his friends and the girl he likes as "No Good Tsuna". She gets better though.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: See Abusive Parents above.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Has brown hair and eyes, which Tsuna inherited.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl:: Tiny girl to Iemitsu. She's 155 cm (5'1') tall, while he is 189 cm (6'2').
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Enforced by her husband, where he says that he works for an oil company to keep her and Tsuna safe.
  • Manchild: In the manga, she acts very hyper and childish and looks more like Tsuna's sister. Subverted in the anime where she is more clueless rather than childish.
  • Parental Obliviousness: She seems to be unaware of the fact that both her husband and her son are part of the Mafia.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: Fuuta ranks them as the sweetest couple out of thousands in his list.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: Rarely seen outside of the kitchen, or hospital.
  • Supreme Chef: Many characters remark that her cooking is some of the best in the world, with others even inviting themselves in order to taste her cooking.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: In the manga, at least according to Haru Haru's Interview, Dangerous!
    • It's also referred to in the anime in the same segment.
Kyoko Sasagawa
A good girl who likes cooking and knitting. Her brother Ryohei is virtually the opposite of her quiet demeanor, but they still get along, (not that you see them together often or anything). Tsuna's feelings for her stemmed from the fact that she was the only girl to talk to him in over a year, but now she's caught up in all this mess along with Haru. It seems like being constantly lied to has been getting frustrating to her.

Voiced by: Yuna Inamura

  • Beauty = Goodness: Quite attractive and one of the kindest in the cast of almost entirely jerkass guys and their jerkass behavior.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Tsuna, in regards to personality. Both are extremely kind to other people and both are actually quite oblivious other's feelings for them. She is as oblivious to Tsuna's crush on her as Tsuna is oblivious to, or not wanting, Haru's attention to him.
  • Brainless Beauty: It doesn't really show but there is the fact that she believed all her brother's ridiculous excuses. Once he even claimed to be hit by a meteor!
  • The Chick: In Tsuna's circle of friends.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Her orange hair and eyes totally match.
  • Distressed Damsel: A lot of times thanks to Reborn's schemes and Tsuna has to save her every time.
  • Dude Magnet: Many guys are attracted to her, with Tsuna and Mochida adding on to that list.
  • Demoted to Extra: While she was never a main character, she had a somewhat prominent role in the Daily Life arc. After the later arcs, her screen time in the series was now constantly shared with Haru, and given very little impact on the overall plot.
  • Extreme Doormat: YMMV though see Yamato Nadeshiko below.
  • Fan of Underdog: Does not show it much under her quiet exterior, but she looks up to Tsuna really highly and is implied to start developing a crush on him.
  • Foil: To both Hana and Haru.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Along with Haru regarding Tsuna and the other's involvement with the mafia. It gets to the point where they even boycotted their daily chores until the others would tell them the truth. Not that it lasted, but their reactions are handled realistically.
  • Love Interest: To Tsuna, who only has his eyes on her.
  • Master of the Mixed Message: Some moments she shares with Tsuna hints at her developing a crush on him, but there are also a fair amount of times where she just seems to view him as a good friend.
  • Nice Girl: She's one of the kindest and sweetest characters in the series. The first time she finds herself shot by the Dying Will Bullet, her biggest regret is not having Tsuna's mom take back an insult she'd made toward him.
  • No Romantic Resolution: She doesn't end up with Tsuna at the end of the series, with it being unknown whether she is aware Tsuna has feelings for her or if she reciprocates any feelings towards him.
  • Oblivious to Love: Sees Tsuna as nothing but a good friend.
  • School Idol: of Namimori Middle.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: She, Kyoko and I-Pin are shown to mainly just stay in the kitchen cooking and cleaning and doing the laundry for the men while they train and fight. They do get sick of being lied to all the time and even stage a boycott. Not that it lasted long, as they get convinced by Bianchi and start feeling guilty that the men are completely incapable of taking care of their own health and food needs, and eventually reach the conclusion that they'll give up and go back to the kitchen (and if it weren't for Tsuna deciding to tell them anyway, they would've just continued on the same way as always).
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Ryohei. Kyoko's your typical Nice Girl while Ryohei is loud and Hot-Blooded.
  • Supreme Chef: Can cook delicious food as shown in the future arc. Reborn even notes that her cooking skill is on par with Nana's.
  • Sweet Tooth: Her guilty pleasure is cake.
  • Tareme Eyes: In contrast to Haru's Tsurime Eyes.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: She can't remember the time where Tsuna saved her from Tazaru, and tries to hide it so no one will be worried for her. Only Bianchi and Haru know this, with the former counseling her to try to help her get through it.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: When she takes the Dying Will Bullet, she becomes quieter and more polite. Still, Beware the Nice Ones.

Haru Miura
She is the one girl who actually likes Tsuna in a romantic sense and attends Midori Middle School, one of the toughest elite schools to get into in the area. She initially adored Reborn, but after she was saved by Tsuna, she diverted her adoration towards him instead. She loves children and is usually the one to babysit Lambo and I-Pin.

Voiced by: Hitomi Yoshida

  • All Love Is Unrequited: Has a crush on Tsuna, who has his eyes on Kyoko.
  • The Chick: Shares this position with Kyoko.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: A grand example.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: If namahage really counts as cosplay...
    • Or famous landmarks, like Tokyo Tower. So yeah...
    • Or some stuff like the old lady, boat and veggies costumes in the manga.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Which is why she tries to take the angelic Reborn from Tsuna's hands.
  • Fan of Underdog: Or rather kept failing to realize that Tsuna's not a badass.
  • Friend to All Children: She absolutely adores kids and was disappointed with Tsuna when he thought that he was abusing Lambo.
  • Foil: To Kyoko.
  • Genius Ditz: Implied to be this. She goes to a private school that's supposedly difficult to get into.
  • Genki Girl: Quite genki even if she is in the middle of something caused by Reborn.
  • Gratuitous English: Usually mixes English words into her vocabulary. "Dangerous desu."
  • Harmless Villain: For a short time.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Along with Kyoko regarding Tsuna and the other's involvement with the mafia. It gets to the point where they even boycotted their daily chores until the others would tell them the truth. Not that it lasted, but their reactions are handled realistically.
  • No Romantic Resolution: Her crush with Tsuna is still unrequited as of the last chapter.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: She tries to glomp and hold Tsuna all the time and is very clingy to him, much to his and Gokudera's irritation.
  • Rescue Romance: The reason why she falls for Tsuna.
  • Stalker with a Crush: First stalks Reborn for his cuteness, then it transferred to Tsuna after he saved her life.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: She, Kyoko and I-Pin are shown to mainly just stay in the kitchen cooking and cleaning and doing the laundry for the men while they train and fight. They do get sick of being lied to all the time and even stage a boycott. Not that it lasted long, as they get convinced by Bianchi and start feeling guilty that the men are completely incapable of taking care of their own health and food needs, and eventually reach the conclusion that they'll give up and go back to the kitchen again.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: Had a common wavelength with Bianchi from the beginning.
  • Sweet Tooth: She and Kyoko bond over their love of cake.
  • Supreme Chef: Along with Kyoko, where she cooked for the guys and everyone notes how delicious their food is.
  • Third-Person Person: She always refers to herself in third person, which makes her look even more childish.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Relative to Kyoko, that is.
  • Verbal Tic: "Hahi!" when surprised.
  • With Friends Like These...: She is quite belligerent with Gokudera of all people who frequently fights over Tsuna's attention. She is always declaring her love to Tsuna while he is always trying to pull her away from him. Tsuna doesn't really appreciate the sentiments from both of them.
  • Yandere: Trying to murder Tsuna for Reborn's sake.

    Hana Kurokawa 
Hana Kurokawa
Kyoko's best friend who hates children to the point she gets hives when she gets near them. Ironically enough, she gets married to Ryohei later.

Voiced by: Miki Ootani

  • Child Hater: Particularly towards Lambo.
    • She mostly gets over it in the future.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Foil: To Kyoko.
  • Friendship Moment: When she helps Kyoko in the future.
  • Likes Older Men: She says that she prefers mature men rather than her classmates as she refers to Gokudera and Yamamoto as monkeys. Ironically enough, she gets married to Ryohei in the future.

  • Official Couple: Her future self apparently got together with Ryohei.

Kensuke Mochida
Kyoko's "ex" love interest and the very first antagonist, if you can call him that.

Voiced by: Toshinobu Iida

  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Tsuna pulling out most of his hair certainly counts as one.
  • Delinquent: A classic example, whereas the other delinquents are part of the Absurdly Powerful School Council.
  • Jerkass: Quite so, as he tries to bully Tsuna for trying to confess to Kyoko, and challenges him to a Kendo fight that he knows Tsuna can't win.
  • Poke the Poodle
  • Smug Snake: Is confident that he can beat Tsuna and take Kyoko as his girlfriend, which is true but unfortunately for him, Tsuna has Reborn on his side.

    Yamamoto Tsuyoshi 
Yamamoto Tsuyoshi

  • Cool Teacher: To his son Yamamoto, when he decided to teach him Shigure Soen Ryu.
  • Good Parents: Is pretty much a nice dad to Takeshi and supports him in all his decisions no matter what they are, which is a reason why his death hit his son hard in the future.
  • Keet: You can see where Yamamoto got his cheerful disposition.
  • Killed Offscreen: By the Millefiore.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Takeshi certainly took a lot of his looks and personality from him.
  • Master Swordsman: Implied to be one in his youth as a practitioner to Shigure Soen Ryu, and still keeps his skills as shown when training Takeshi.
  • Parental Obliviousness: Downplayed but he does know that Takeshi is up to something, he just doesn't ask for his reasons for taking up the sword.

     Kusakabe Tetsuya 
Kusakabe Tetsuya

  • Badass Normal: Doesn't use flames in order to fight, but still holds himself in a decent fight with the Mooks.
  • Delinquent: Looks like one, but acts more like a security guard than a delinquent.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: He along with Chrome disguise themselves as White Spell soldiers to infiltrate the Melone Base.
