This is a listing of the Arcobaleno of Reborn! (2004). YMMV items and subjectives go in the YMMV page for the series.
- Badass Adorable: All of them are fairly tiny and very adorable. All of them are also quite deadly in their respective fields. Even Verde is capable of building dangerous machines.
- Badass Crew: Compromised of the most elite members of their respective fields.
- Blush Sticker: All of them sports these to make them look cuter.
- Cool Pet: Each one has their own animal.
- Cursed With Awesome/Blessed with Suck: The curse of the rainbow which turns them into babies to protect the cursed treasures and gives them new powers. It will eventually kill them and if it doesn't, they'll simply live on in a horrific undead state filled with revenge.
- As of Chapter 406, the curse is removed. But due to the curse being there in the first place, the full Arcobaleno are stuck as babies but without the threat of death. Everyone except for Lal Mirch, who grew up instantly, will have to grow up a second time.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: Each one of them has at least mentored on Guardian, and all of them are dead in the future, with the exception of Lal Mirch
- Older Than They Look: Thanks to the curse that they inherited thanks to Checkerface.. All of them are adults trapped in an infant body to protect the pacifiers. Most of them didn't accept their fates, save for Luche and Reborn.
- Plot-Relevant Age-Up: The Curse of the Arcobaleno Arc has them able to transform into their adult selves as a gift by Checkerface.
- Living Legend: Every single mafioso knows of the Arcobaleno and will treat them with respect, no matter if they look like infants or not. Even Skull, the weakest of them all, has his assault on Mafia Land taken seriously by the Mafia families. And for good reason, as it is revealed that every single one of them can do devastating attacks once they join a fight.
- Really 700 Years Old: The Arcobalenos are stated to appear in certain points of time, which makes their ages vague since no one knows when they actually appeared.
- Soul Jar: The pacifiers work as one, as forcibly removing it from them also strip them of their flames, along with their lives.
- Super-Deformed: To the point that characters have difficulty imagining how they look in their (more realistic) adult bodies.
- Vague Age: All of them have no ages given, and thanks to the curse, they grew back as babies and stayed that way for a long time, which makes pinpointing their actual ages even harder to find.
The Main Seven
Voiced by: Takashi Kondo (Japanese), Yeong-Seon Kim (Korean)
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 two are not brothers, at the very least).
- Adaptational Early Appearance: Of a sort. In the anime, he's in the Daily Life arc disguised as a food vendor.
- Badass Adorable: In the Volume 31 Haru Haru Interview, Reborn admits that Fon is probably the strongest of the Arcobaleno in terms of unarmed combat. In Chapter 372 he finally fights and gets to prove that statement true.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Only uses his fist to fight, but that doesn't mean that he can't keep up with others. In fact, he was able to go toe to toe with Xanxus and defeat Mammon, two of the strongest Varia officers
- Cute Bruiser: He is the world's best hand to hand fighter as stated by Reborn, which he was able to prove against his fight with Xanxus and Mammon.
- Enfante Terrible: Subverted as he is one of the nicest ones in the Arcobaleno circle full of Jerkasses.
- Everything's Better with Plushies: I-Pin sports a cute plushie of him in the Future arc.
- Everything's Better with Monkeys: His pet is a cute Lil' baboon, Lichi.
- Generation Xerox: Judging from the heavy implications that Fon and Hibari are related, the two looking alike may not be a coincidence anymore...
- I Let You Win: In his test with Tsuna in the Arcobaleno Trial arc once he proves his leadership.
- Lightning Bruiser: Even in his cursed state, Fon is very hard to catch, which is a point of his test with Tsuna and co. The only reason they won is that he let I-pin hit him which sent him flying to Tsuna's arms.
- Nice Guy: Very polite, humble, and reasonable. Total opposite of Hibari, and definitely the nicest male Arcobaleno.
- Odd Couple: Paired up with Gokudera during the Inheritance Trials, and has to spend a lot of time reigning him in.
- Perpetual Smiler: Never sports a frown on his face and always calm. Compare that to his cousin Hibari
- Plot-Relevant Age-Up: Temporarily turns back to normal in order to participate in the Representative Battle.
- Shirtless Scene: In his adult form, in Chapter 372. Fangirl reaction was as excepted.
- Short Hair with Tail: To complement his Chinese aesthetic. He pretty much resembles Hibari with a short braid.
- Strong Family Resemblance: With Hibari, who is revealed to be his cousin of sorts in an interview.
Voiced by: Masahiro Kono (Japanese), Ji-Hoon Choi (Korean)
- Anime Hair: Probably designed to play on the typical "messy haired Mad Scientist" stereotype.
- Big Bad: Of the anime-only Arcobaleno Trials arc. While the other Arcobaleno are just trying to test Tsuna and his Guardians, Verde wants to take the Vongola Rings for himself, and is willing — eager, even — to kill Tsuna, the Guardians and the other Arcobaleno to get what he wants.
- Butt-Monkey: Ever since he allied with Mukuro, he's been at the end of the short stick by Mukuro and Flans's petty fights.
- Enfante Terrible: The most terrible out of the group, to the point that Reborn doesn't know what he will do next.
- For Science!: Everything he does is for the name of science, no matter how immoral or unethical what is is planning. He is even one of the inventors of the box weapons, which sparked a major war in the future.
- Jerkass: Just like Mukuro, so much that both of them either mirror each other's saying or say something at the same time.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Jerkass or not, Verde is blatantly panicked when he discovers that a member of the Vindice attacked the Kokuyo gang and afterwards straight out told Mukuro that he can bail on being his representative if he wants to.
- Meaningful Name: "Verde" is "Green" in Italian. Just look at him. Green hair, green alligator, green pacifier!
- Non-Action Guy: Points out in The Curse of the Arcobaleno arc that asking him to physically fight the other Arcobaleno would be unfair, given he's an elite scientist rather than a fighter.
- Odd Couple: Paired up with Lambo during the Inheritance Trials. Poor Lambo is not only ignored by him, but even used him as an experimental test subject.
- Token Evil Teammate: Very much one in the anime. Likely to be one in the manga as well, since Chapter 353 reveals that he allied himself with Mukuro of all people.
- Wouldhurt A Child: Have no qualms in experimenting with Lambo, even shocking him with at least one million volts of lightning in Lampo's trial arc.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair: Fran lampshades his foliage-like hair by nicknaming him "Berry-Poo."
Voiced by: Daisuke Nakamura (Japanese), Gwang-Ju Jeon (Korean)
- Adaptation Dye-Job: He's supposed to have blue clothes to match his pacifier. This was later changed so that his headband remained blue but his clothes became green like they were in the anime.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Lal Mirch. The last time we see him, he is getting married to Lal Mirch while still in his baby form
- Beware the Cute Ones: He's cute and wont hesitate to pound someone to a rock as training. Just ask Ryohei for that.
- BFG: Usually sports one. He later sports a really big one when he participates in the Representative Battle.
- Devil in Plain Sight: He is equal to this with Reborn, but at least he doesn't hurt anyone for no reason at all.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: Subverted; he has the attitude and mannerisms and is more than happy to give Tsuna a beating, but to his actual students (Ryohei, and Yamamoto in the anime) he's a respectful mentor.
- Enfante Terrible: Up to par with Reborn in the terrible department, as they both ganged up on Tsuna to see who will be the better tutor.
- Head Pet: Falco, his pet hawk, carries him everywhere and always stays on his head even if fighting.
- Infant Sleep Cycle Which he shares with Reborn. But it's only the two of them that is shown to be sleeping at weird times.
- Made of Iron: Reborn shoots him in the head in the manga, which he merely shrugs off due to 'having gone through training'.
- Phenotype Stereotype: He has the blond hair, blue eyes, and army apparel of an American anime character, even though he's likely Italian or Japanese.
- Plot-Relevant Age-Up: Temporarily turns back to normal in order to participate in the Representative battle.
- Screw Destiny: He forcefully took Lal's place as the Rain Arcobaleno, but the results weren't as expected.
- Training from Hell: What he subjects Tsuna in the Daily Life arc. Subverted with Ryohei's case, as he taught the guy on how to rest and charge up his cells instead.
- Trickster Mentor: Up there with Reborn in training Tsuna, but will train his other students the normal way.
- Verbal Tic: Ends every sentence with kora, kora (a slightly rude form of "hey")!
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Type 1 with Reborn; they regularly argue, headbutt each other, and deny that they're close, which Tsuna chalks up to them being childhood friends.
Voiced by: Rumi Shishido (Japanese), So-Eun Lee (Korean)
- Aggressive Categorism: Seems to think female illusionists are weak. He certainly changed his mind sometime in the future as he left a program to help Chrome grow stronger.
- Ambiguous Gender: It hasn't been made official yet (damn hood!) and he could easily be a she. Since the release of a certain color page, the fandom has been raging.
- Berserk Button: Fon's personality really rubs him the wrong way. Also, when he thinks someone is looking down on illusions, or when illusions are beaten by physical force.
- Black Cloak: Wears a black cloak that covers his entire body as revealed when he was older.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Is in the middle of giving one to Chrome when Mukuro appears and turns the tables back on him.
- The Cynic: Sees money as the only reliable thing in the world (Possibly carries an exception in Xanxus).
- Dirty Coward: After realizing he couldn't beat Mukuro, he ran like hell to escape Xanxus's wrath.
- Facial Markings: Has two triangle marks on his cheeks.
- Goal in Life: To be freed of his curse and he's willing to part with all his money just for a chance to remove the curse.
- The Hedonist: Doesn't really care about helping others, and is only obsessed about money and wealth. Fitting for his name.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Sort of. He enjoys his powers but despises being an infant, and thus created the Mammon Chains out of his desire of returning to adulthood.
- Identity Impersonator: Even Reborn and Colonnello aren't sure if he's the same Viper they used to know.
- In the Hood: We never see his face since he never lets it down.
- In Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves: Invokes the literal version on all present combatants in the Representative Battle.
- Inferiority Superiority Complex: Acts like he thinks he is the best, but jumps on the "He's gonna beat me" bandwagon to the extreme during his and Fon's battle, resulting in much blood loss.
- Irrational Hatred: Has this towards Fon, for his "preaching" while all of the Arcobaleno were together.
- Living Emotional Crutch: 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.
- Master of Illusion: Too bad Mukuro one-ups him in this regard, but he is still one of the best illusionists in the world.
- Mood-Swinger: Calm and controlled one moment, but will immediately snap to yelling at the top of his lungs and rushing into battle without thinking things through about his opponent.
- Not So Stoic: Shows up in the Representative Battles.
- Only in It for the Money: With the exception of breaking his curse, this is the only reason he does anything.
- Pet the Dog: When he helps Chrome break Daemon Spade's illusion, and when he reassures her that her illusion work is fine during the Inheritance Ceremony.
- The Rival: Seems to see Fon as this. Fon doesn't even realize it as his Nice Guy personality has him give advice to Mammon instead.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Very cold towards most but plays often with Bel, compliments Levi's work ethic, and seems to genuinely believe in and care about Xanxus.
- Theme Naming: His alias, Mammon, is the name of the demon of Greed.
Voiced by: Tetsuya Yanagihara (Japanese), Bo-Yeong Kim (Korean)
- Armor Is Useless: On closer inspection, besides leather, he seems to be wearing some body armor.
- Bishounen: Lampshaded by himself in Chapter 353. And he is an actual stud when his curse was lifted."The real me is a total pretty-boy hottie!""Before I was cursed, I was over seven heads tall!"
- Butt-Monkey: Amongst the Arcobaleno, despite the fact that he's also a certified badass.
- Curtains Match the Window: Has violet hair and eyes to fit his cloud theme.
- Enfante Terrible: Tries to be one, but he's usually turned to a Butt-Monkey at the end.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: Wears a really tight biker's outfit.
- Impossibly Cool Clothes: A mix between Goth and Badass Biker. Adelheid lampshades his Goth look and sort-of makes fun of it."A-are you wearing makeup?"
- Made of Iron: He tanks a supremely high amount of damage protecting Enma during the Curse of the Rainbow arc. He also survives 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.
- My Friends... and Zoidberg: He is usually excluded when there are serious talks with his fellow Arcobalenos, and they just make them their waterboy instead.
- Odd Friendship: He picks Enma as his representative during the Curse of the Rainbow arc out of desperation, but they end up genuinely getting along and he even starts panicking when Enma's life is threatened (could partially be helped by the fact that they're both big Butt Monkeys).
- Overshadowed by Awesome: He may be a cowardly Butt-Monkey and errand boy among his peers, but he's still an Arcobaleno.
- Paper Tiger: Looks the part and has a pretty awesome Dynamic Entry, but it becomes obvious very quickly that he's nowhere near as badass as he'd like to be.
Voiced by: Atsuko Yuya (Japanese), Ri-Na Park (Korean)
- Ambiguously Human: It's revealed by Checkerface that her ancestor Sephira is a alien like him, which makes Luche and her descendants this. It's unknown if she is a Half-Human Hybrid or not.
- Benevolent Boss: To the point where the future subordinates of the Giglio Nero family are still fond of her.
- Blessed with Suck: Can see into the future, at the cost of a shortened lifespan.
- The Chick: She can't fight compared to the other Arcobalenos. But she does make a great boss out of them
- Enfante Terrible: Subverted, as she is one of the nicest people you can meet out of the Arcobalenos, who have some jerkass characteristics.
- Facial Markings: A small flower tattoo that she shares with Aria and Yuni.
- Hot Witch: The benevolent sort but before becoming an Arcobaleno, she was a powerful Shaman.
- : She and her descendants share hair color and facial structure.
- Irony: Becoming a baby shortly after giving birth certainly qualifies.
- Nice Hat: She wears a big one that must weigh a ton to wear.
- Nice Girl: She brings cookies along to the first Arcobaleno meeting, which helps defuse the hostile atmosphere.
Voiced by: Atsuko Yuya (Japanese), Ri-Na Park (Korean)
After Luche's death, she's replaced by her daughter Aria, who is pretty similar to her in looks and personality. Of course, this doesn't exempt her from the Sky Arcobaleno curse. We only see her in the first filler arc before being Put on a Bus that crashes in the future. That sucks, but at least she was able to have 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.
- Action Mom: Shown to be wielding a gun in her flashbacks with Gamma, which means she at least knows how to use it.
- All Love Is Unrequited: It's unknown if she returns Gamma's affections or not, but it's implied that she has a lover cause she did have Yuni and he doesn't know about her until she died.
- Blessed with Suck: Like her mother, Can see into the future, at the cost of a shortened lifespan.
- Doomed by Canon: Only appears in the Arcobaleno trials arc, and any future mentions of her is usually in the past tense. She even gave up her chance of breaking the curse for Yuni to have it instead.
- Facial Markings: Her small flower tattoo on her cheek.
- The Gadfly: Teases Tsuna with his three "girlfriends" which he denies.
- Nice Hat: Which is the same one that Luche and Yuni wear. Must be the uniform for the Giglio Nero boss.
- Put on a Bus: Appears in the anime-only Arcobaleno Arc and is dead by the time the future arc rolls.
Voiced by: Masami Suzuki (Japanese), Seon-Hye Kim (Korean)
- Armor-Piercing Slap: She uses this if someone doesn't get what she is saying, or to punish someone (mostly Tsuna) for slacking off.
- Cursed With Awesome: She's actually the exception. Unlike the other Arcobaleno, she just got the infant part. However, she can turn her corrupted pacifier into the Rain Pacifier with great effort, implying she can still recover some of the lost awesome.
- Demoted to Satellite Love Interest: She's probably the most badass character in the series, she has strength, agility, incredible weapons and she even trained one of the Strongest Seven, being chosen for his position initially. And yet everyone just recognized her as one of the Arcobaleno's Love Interests.
- Everyone Can See It: Regarding her feelings to Colonello, which she tries to deny all the time. Reborn teases her for it and even Tsuna thinks that there may be something between them.
- Facial Markings/Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a nasty scar from being partly inflicted by the Arcobaleno curse. It was bowdlerised into a facial marking in the anime.
- La Résistance: In the Future Arc, where she is one of the remaining Vongola personnel still alive. And bonus points for taking part in the Millefiore raid base.
- Sink-or-Swim Mentor: Implied to be this to Colonnello, and later was this to Tsuna in the Future Arc.
- The Spartan Way: Even moreso than Reborn, to the point that Tsuna has learned to fear her the same way as Hibari and Reborn.
- Tsundere: Towards Collonello, where she always slaps him around, but can't help but blush whenever he leaves.
Bermuda von Veckenschtein
A mysterious Arcobaleno who is also a member of the Vindice. He possesses a clear pacifier with the Flame of Night and was apparently the strongest Arcobaleno in the past. Like the Vindice, he also survived losing his Arcobaleno curse and was turned into a zombie-like state.
- The Bad Guy Wins: Of a sort, Tsuna was able to find a third option regarding the dilemma of the Arcobaleno system. Seeing as the seven flames needed to be lit forever, they took the device from Tsuna and Checkerface and promised to guard it forever so no more victims will be needed. Bermuda considers this a win against Checkerface, seeing that he took the cursed system away from him.
- Bandaged Face: His face is bandaged in order to hide that his face and body is rotting.
- Big Bad Ensemble: Opposite Checker Face for the Curse of the Rainbow arc.
- Casting a Shadow: What the flame of the night looks like. He is able to power up his comrades thanks to their flame.
- Dark Is Evil: He's the wielder of the eighth flame. and uses his powers for nefarious purposes.
- Hopeless Boss Fight: To the other candidates of the representative battle. He is so powerful that only Tsuna can defeat him, and even Reborn warned him not to fight many times..
- One-Winged Angel: His Adult Form, if you can still consider him human and not a monstrosity with oversized arms and eyes.
- Revenge: Against Checker Face. He was able to at least get some form of revenge by taking the Arcobaleno system away from Checkerface, which he considers a win. Checkerface doesn't seem to mind at least, happy that he was able to bring closure to the Vindice.
- Sadistic Choice: Gives one to Reborn. Either they continue the Representative Battle and die when Checker Face takes away their pacifiers, which will either kill them or leave them in an immortal undead-like state with revenge as their only salvation, or they work together to defeat Checker Face and destroy the Arcobaleno system which will also kill them. Unfortunately it seems both Bermuda and Reborn believe there is no third option.
- Sympathy for the Devil: Of all the horrible things that he's done in the representative war, Tsuna feels sorry for his state as he thinks that he is only a victim of Checkerface's machinations.
- Villain Respect: Gives this to Reborn, and later Tsuna, as he even invites him to his plan of getting revenge against Checkerface. And he became quite amicable with Tsuna after he figured out a way to save the current generation of the Arcobalenos and indirectly helping his revenge against Checkerface.
- Walking Spoiler: Everything related to his is connected to the curse of the Arcobaleno. Just knowing his existence is a spoiler itself.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: Not in the same way as Reborn, but they dress formally and they're quite dangerous.
- Came Back Wrong: Of a sort, they are former Arcobalenos that Bermuda gave his flame of the night to be able to move.
- The Dreaded: Everyone in the Mafia world knows that being chased by the Vindice means that someone must have committed a terrible act and fighting against them is futile. To prove this, they were able to capture Ghost, who is Byakuran's counterpart made of Dying Will Flames alone after he killed many mafioso. Reborn even wanted Tsuna to drop out of the representative war when he learned what the Vindice really are.
- Handicapped Badass: All of the Vindice are essentially walking corpses; they cannot fight or even move unless Bermuda provides them power from his Flame of Night.
- Really 700 Years Old: Unlike the Arcobalenos, They are the decayed bodies of the past Arcobalenos who wish to get their revenge against Checker Face.
- Wardens Are Evil: They are the Wardens of the Vendicare Prison, which is one of the worst prisons and they don't give out mercy to those they capture. They drag their prisoners in chains and the most vile of the prisoners, they keep in People Jars. Wanting revenge against Checkerface, they indiscriminately attack every representative of the war.
- Bloodier and Gorier: Easily the most violent villain in the series thus far; he has critically injured and/or maimed most of the main cast.
- Combat Pragmatist: When challenged to a duel by Byakuran, he warps past him and cuts off Xanxus's arm then impales Squalo while they are caught off guard.
- Conservation of Ninjutsu: Played straight until Tsuna arrives then subverted. Tsuna and the remaining capable fighters gang up on Jager and manage to hold him still long enough to land a decisive blow.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: To everyone in the third day of the war. He defeated the likes of Xanxus, Hibari, Byakura, Squalo and Dino in a matter of seconds. Tsuna even had a hard time against him, that is until he disregarded his safety to defeat him.
- Big Bad Ensemble: Opposite Bermuda von Veckenschtein for the Curse of the Rainbow arc.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He is a certain ramen lover named Uncle Kawahira.
- Devil in Plain Sight: Who knew that Uncle Kawahira would appear again after the Future arc?
- Half-Truth: His promise to free the Arcobaleno of their curse. He never said they would survive the process.
- Manipulative Bastard: He has manipulated countless people throughout the ages into taking the Arcobaleno curse either by giving the world's strongest jobs that they fulfill with good rewards or representative battles with the promise of them being freed of the curse.
