The Dying Will Flames of the Sky are seven different-colored Flames that are named after the seven phenomena in the sky: the Sky itself, Storm, Rain, Sun, Lightning, Cloud, and Mist. These seven attributes of the Sky Dying Will Flames are named after the titles of the Vongola Boss and his Guardians. Now, while they are all referred to as "Flames", some attributes actually have properties more similar to other natural elements, such as water and electricity.
The Seven Flames of the Sky
Characteristic: Armonia (調和 chouwa lit. Harmony)
Japanese Translation: Ōzora (大空)
Known Users: Vongola Bosses, Tsunayoshi Sawada, Giotto, Byakuran, Xanxus, Luce, Aria, Uni, Dino, Iemitsu Sawada
Description: Among all the seven attributes, Sky Flames possesses the greatest propulsion power, especially those of high-purity. Described as having many mysteries, its special trait, Harmony, represents a state without contradiction nor flaws in which the balance of the whole is maintained. Furthermore, two different "types" of Sky Flames have been presented. One is the normal, "soft" Flame that has great stability. The other is the high-purity, "hard" Flame that is more volatile but packs more power. Bearers of the Sky-attribute are said to be exceptionally rare and most of the known ones share the common trait of possessing great insight.
Appearance: "Soft" Flames has a core that is pale orange in color, but they gradually become a deeper shade in the area close to its edges. Meanwhile, the core of "hard" Flames are of a very dark, almost reddish shade of orange and the parts closer to its edges are colored by varying tones of orange.
Characteristic: Disintegrazione (分解 bunkai lit. Disintegration)
Japanese Translation: Arashi (嵐)
Known Users: Gokudera, Fon, Zakuro, Rasiel, Belphegor, Bianchi, Tazaru, Nosaru, Baishana, G., Coyote Nougat
Description: Highly offensive Flames, its Disintegration special trait can induce anything that touches the Flames into decaying and breaking apart, including other Dying Will Flames.
Appearance: Their core is an ordinary red, an inner layer of a very pale, somewhat pink-like shade of red-white with outer edges of deep crimson. In the manga, the outer edges of the Flames are distinctively dark.
Characteristic: Calma (鎮静 chinsei lit. Tranquility)
Japanese Translation: Ame (雨)
Ability: Appeasement and dulling
Known Users: Yamamoto, Colonnello, Bluebell, Lal Mirch, Glo Xinia, Squalo, Basil, Olgert, Gokudera, Asari Ugetsu, Schnitten Brabanters
Description: Rain-attribute Flames are in many ways more similar to water than actual flames. Its Tranquility special trait carries the meaning of stillness and pacification. Thus, these Flames can be used to weaken a target by robbing its strength and capacity of movement. In the anime, there is also a known example of it being used to create ice.
Appearance: The Rain Flames have shimmers of some kind flowing through them, giving them an appearance similar to rippling water. The core is a distinctively dark blue and the ever oscillating outer sections are of a more light tone of blue.
Characteristic: Attivita (活性 kassei lit. Activation)
Japanese Translation: Hare (晴)
Ability: Stimulating and augmenting
Known Users: Ryohei, Reborn, Daisy, Shoichi Irie, Lussuria, Ginger Bread, Knuckle, Gokudera, Brow Nie Jr.
Description: The Activation special trait of the Sun Flames has the power to induce and improve the efficiency of any type of activity. As such, it is an optimal Flame for purposes of fulfilling support roles such as healing and strengthening individuals. But that same characteristic also makes it difficult to use Sun Flames in direct combat.
Appearance: Sun Flames possess a whitish core with layers of yellow enveloping it. The most distinguishing characteristics are the small dot-shaped sparkles it beams, which are somewhat similar to small stars. They appear to be constantly in motion, spiking in some places and flowing in others.
Description: Lightning Flames are in many ways more similar to electricity than actual flames. The Solidification special trait of these Flames can be employed harden and increase the firmness of objects. By themselves, the Flames can be used defensively by projecting a solid barrier and offensively by cutting as if sharp blades or electrocuting as if real electricity.
Appearance: Lightning Flames have a center that is off-white green and extremely sharp "spikes" of a dark neon green in color. Its tendency to form round shapes with the sharper parts flailing around is a nod to how electricity is often depicted in animated works.
Characteristic: Riproduzione (増殖 zoushoku lit. Propagation)
Japanese Translation: Kumo (雲)
Ability: Reproduction and growth
Known Users: Hibari, Skull, Kikyo, Nigella Beankabul, Iris Hepburn, Lal Mirch, Gokudera, Alaude, Visconti
Description: The Propagation special trait of Cloud Flames carries a meaning of increase and replication. As such, it is suited for anything that involves increase of size and multiplication of numbers. Also, this Propagation effect is highly advantageous when performing techniques meant to cover a great area, such as creating a cyclone or a a impervious force field. Coincidence or not, a number of Cloud Box Weapons have the ability to pull out and/or absorb the Flames of the enemy.
Appearance: While the core is clear purple in color, the rest of the Cloud Flames have a very pale tone of violet, making this one of the most light-colored type of Flames. Also, unlike the other Seven Flames of the Sky, the shape of Cloud Flames is more oblique and somewhat unstable-looking.
Characteristic: Costruzione (構築 kouchiku lit. Construction)
Japanese Translation: Kiri (霧)
Known Users: Mukuro Rokudo, Chrome Dokuro, Viper, Torikabuto, Genkishi, Kawahira, Lal Mirch, Flan, Daemon Spade, Kyoya Hibari, Bouche Croquant
Description: The Construction special trait of the Mist Flame makes it optimal to be used along Illusions, especially during the creation of Real Illusions. They are described as having a low hardness and, consequentially, it has a weak offensive power.
Appearance: The most opaque among the Seven Flames of the Sky, Mist Flames' coloring is pale white around its core and gradually turns into a dark indigo at the Flame's edges.
- During the beginning of the series, there was no distinction among the different types and colors of Dying Will Flames other than Tsuna's orange one. The first person introduced with a different type of Dying Will Flame was Basil with a blue-colored Flame, which was later known as the Rain Flame.
- Due to this, in the game Jump Ultimate Stars, the special-up and the special move for Tsuna's first and second koma shown a blue flame, resembles Basil's Flame instead of the normal orange one.
- Because of this, in the first game of the Flame Rumble series, all Vongola Members had Sky Flames and all Kokuyo Members had Mist Flames.
- Also, when Ryohei was shot by a Dying Will Bullet, and the Flame showed was a Sky Flame, not his actual Flame, which is the Sun Flame.
- There is a supposed "Snow Flame" in a Reborn! DS game with a Snow Guardian, but it was revealed to be disguised Sky Flames.
- Gokudera is the only character so far to possess five Flames, but his dominant Flame is the Storm Flame.
