Enma Kozato is a gloomy and introverted transfer student at Namimori Middle School. Enma is the tenth boss of the Simon Famiglia and previously attended Simon Middle School, but he and his Guardians transferred to Namimori after an earthquake hit their area. Once bitter towards the Vongola for supposedly betraying Cozarto Simon, their first boss, things were cleared up.
Enma has a laid-back appearance and is inferior in stature to many around him. He has both red eyes and red hair. The pupils of his eyes take the shape of the four pointers of a compass. He is a thin teen with a short build and he wears the usual Simon school uniform. When not in his traditional uniform, he has been seen wearing a normal sweatshirt and jeans. He seems to slouch while sitting and buckles his knees near his midsection. When in Dying Will Mode, he has the Earth Flame ignited on his forehead. Overall, he looks similar to his ancestor.
His social skills are poor at best; his shy demeanor and quiet voice make him an easy target for bullying. He appears to be weak-minded, even to the point that Hana Kurokawa describes him as "the type who'd get teased a lot." He reminds Tsuna of the way he used to be (and, in many aspects, still is). He seems to have a dislike for the Mafia, and has commented that he has on many occasions considered running away from it. Enma also does not have the respect of some of his own members of his Famiglia, mainly from Koyo, who tends to call him "Loser Enma." Enma, however, does have serious and even cruel side to him that he keeps hidden from others. An example of this would be when he coldly stated that he will annihilate Vongola and even nearly killed him. However, he's actually a kind-hearted boy who deeply cares for his family and friends. A strong-willed individual, he is willing to do anything in order to protect them despite his dislike of war, much similar like Tsuna.
After his first day at Namimori Middle School, Tsuna witnessed Enma getting beaten up after school. Reborn takes full advantage of the situation by pushing Tsuna into the fray, which invariably ends in a sound beating for both boys. Afterwards, when Tsuna helps Enma gather his things, he hands Enma a textbook, which causes both Tsuna's Vongola Ring and a ring that Enma had tied around his neck to start glowing. Enma reacts with surprise and runs off.
Later, Tsuna (under Reborn's instruction) finds Enma at the riverside sewing his pants. Tsuna is mildly surprised at Enma's skill with a needle until realizing that the pant legs had been accidentally sewn together, a mistake highly reminiscent of Tsuna's own Home Economics mishaps. Tsuna returns Enma's textbook, which was dropped when Enma ran off, and both trip and fall into the river. Tsuna invites Enma over to get clean clothes and have Nana sew his pants properly. Enma warns Tsuna to keep away from him if he wants to avoid the perpetual bullying. Tsuna is reminded of his own old, "helpless" demeanor," so he tries to explain to Enma that he is hopeless as well, so he is used to bullying. After an outburst from Lambo, Enma calls Tsuna's home "very lively." Tsuna immediately disagrees, saying that his home is much more "noisy" than "lively." Lambo then starts to hurl grenades at Tsuna, yelling that that their game of "Assassins" will start. Tsuna panics and tries to get rid of a grenade, but is unsuccessful. After the explosion in Tsuna's room, Enma tries to find Tsuna, who is beneath his closet where he hides all his failing exams, making them laughed together.
Enma walks to school with Tsuna on the second day. After Tsuna suddenly recalls the strange sensation he'd had when their rings almost touched day before, he asks to borrow his hand for a minute to see if it would happen again. When they touch, he feels nothing and thinks that maybe he was just imagining things. Gokudera's surprise interruption scares Enma away, running off at high speed. He reappears a little while later at the fight between Hibari and Adelheid.
It is later revealed that he is a member of the Simon Famiglia, a Famiglia which had ties with the Vongola even before the time of Giotto. He was invited, along with his Guardians, to attend Tsuna's Inheritance Ceremony.
When Tsuna wonders what he should do about the Inheritance Ceremony, Enma suggests running away, which he often considers doing. This shows he has the same feelings about the Mafia as Tsuna does. When Tsuna takes Enma's suggestion to heart, Reborn appears and hits them both, adding to Enma's ever-growing list of injuries. He and Tsuna are then attacked by an assassin sent by the Pesca Famiglia. Tsuna saves Enma by defeating the assassin easily. Reborn, however, senses something unidentifiable from Enma during the first few seconds of the attack, and immediately becomes suspicious. Later, it is revealed that Enma is, in fact, the Boss of his Famiglia. He is shown to have a pendant-like object around his neck and his eyes light up with a Dying Will Flame while looking at it.
When Yamamoto and Kaoru practiced together, Reborn brought him along, after he saved him from a dog who tried to steal his takoyaki while he was eating it. He, along with the others, cheered Kaoru on by wearing vegetable costumes.
After Tsuna met the Ninth, he stayed at his house because he was on guard duty. Tsuna then consulted with him about his conversation with the Ninth. He asked why Tsuna was telling him this, and Tsuna replied because he didn't have anyone that he could talk to about the Mafia. When Tsuna said that they are alike, Enma said not to put him in the same category because his Famiglia has dealt with a lot of abuse from other Mafia Famiglias because they were weak and small. Enma also said there are times when he feels he could be friends with him because Tsuna is different from other scary Mafia. Hearing this, Tsuna said that he already considered Enma as a friend even without a ceremony; he really thought it was great that they met each other. Before Enma could say something, Nana called them to take a bath. Enma then immediately called Adelheid, and said he really thinks Tsuna is not a bad guy. Adelheid then told him to test him by himself but reminded him not to forget the "Sin of Vongola." Enma then wrote a letter for Tsuna that he was threatened by a Mafia group who took down the Giegue Famiglia and is trying to interfere with the Vongola Inheritance Ceremony. He planned for Tsuna to go to the factory side at noon and wanted his help. He then awoke at night and left the letter on Tsuna's desk and went to the factory. The next morning, he is seen waiting at the factory alone.
Adelheid later finds Enma sitting alone in the factory and says that Tsuna went to school and ignored the letter he wrote. Adelheid tells Enma that the Vongola Inheritance Ceremony will be a success and that it is the only way to restore the Simon Famiglia's power. Enma then responds that he knows.
Attack on Inheritance CeremonyEnma is later seen at the Vonogla Inheritance Ceremony getting beaten up by one of the guests, who wondered why a no-name Famiglia like the Simon had come to the ceremony, but Adelheid intervenes and says that they had received invitations. Tsuna, who'd seen this, asks if he is okay and wonders where he was yesterday. Tsuna tells him that he'd decided to "go with the ceremony," Enma however appears to give him a disappointing glare. He is later seen in the crowds of the ceremony, waiting along with the rest of Simon Famiglia, where Tsuna will receive the Vongola Sin from the Ninth.
After an explosion, the sin was broken open, supposedly by Enma. The ninth revealed that the Sin in the ceremony was merely a fake. He proclaimed that the real one was in a safe that was impossible to penetrate. Suddenly, the safe is broken open, and the open safe revealed Enma and his Guardians. Enma says he'd needed this to take revenge on the Vongola. He breaks open the bottle of Sin and pours the contents (supposedly blood) onto his ring and goes into Hyper Dying Will Mode and his arm mutates into a robotic arm. Tsuna asks why he did this somberly, then he as well breaks into Dying Will Mode and Enma prepares to face off against him. Tsuna asks Enma why they attacked Yamamoto, to which Enma responds that he was a "Vongola Guardian" and it was a "rightful atonement." Enma then went on to explain that the Sin belonged to the Simon Famiglia and that it was the blood of their first boss.
Enma then asks Tsuna if he's ever heard the story, which Tsuna replies, "I don't deny that the blood of the Vongola runs within me. Neither do I have the ability to really find out what happened between Vongola and Simon. I can't prove that it didn't happen. But there is one thing I can swear on my grave, Vongola Primo is man who would never do such a thing!" This angers the Simon and they make the declaration that Enma will inherit their Famiglia as the tenth boss and take revenge on the Vongola by gathering Mafia from all over the world and standing above them as leader. The purpose of the war being was to gain back the pride of Simon.
Adelheid and the others then release their rings as Enma says that the reason that Vongola Primo got rid of Simon was because they had a power that rivaled the Dying Will Flames Of The Sky, the Dying Will Flames Of The Earth. Enma told Adelheid and the others to stay out of the fight against the five Vongola guardians; with his new found powers, Enma lifts Gokudera and Ryohei aside, sending them in into the wall. Chrome and Hibari are also lifted in the air, due to the sheer power of the Simon Rings that have been strengthened by the Sin. Just then, Tsuna asks Enma to stop and rushes to stop him. Tsuna asks why he is doing this, to which Enma responds saying that this is his fault, and that he has been watching Tsuna for some time and that he is different from the other previous bosses. Tsuna is than overpowered by him and Enma proclaims that in seven days time, his power will grow, and that he'd only been using 1/7 of his full power. He then left with the rest of Simon Famiglia stating they wanted them to experience hell and that the Simon could kill them anytime.
After Tsuna and the others have recovered, they head off to Simon Base to get Chrome back, and to stop them. Enma compliments Tsuna and his Guardians for finding their base so quickly, and that they all came alone. Reborn asks why they brought the Vindice. The Vindice guards claim that their only reason for coming is to fulfill the promise between the Simon Primo and Vongola Primo. The Vindice state that since they considered one another as friends, the Simon and the Vongola must never fight one another. The two bosses made an agreement to never attack one another, and thus, the Vindice made a law, in which the losing Famiglia would be erased from existence forever, and spend the rest of eternity in Vendicare Prison. The Vindice state that since this is the second time this happened, they must fight one another. Enma receives memories from the first key; he calls for a meeting within the Simon Famiglia.
Upon receiving memories from the second key and learning that Rauji was defeated, Enma becomes very depressed and upset, demotivated in continuing the fights. However, Julie manages to manipulate Enma into continuing.
After P.Shitt is defeated by Gokudera, Enma attempts to save her by using his weapon,but he was too late. Agitated and angered further, he challenges Tsuna then and there to end it. As Enma laments how Koyo, Rauji and now P. Shitt have been imprisoned the Vongola have again ruined his Famiglia, Tsuna remembers Ryohei, Yamamoto and Chrome and claims that Enma and the Simon are doing the same thing to him, and enters Hyper Dying Will Mode. The two then engage in a fierce battle, seemingly evenly matched, but when Enma proclaims that it was Tsuna's father who killed his parents and sister, Tsuna is frozen. Enma then grabs Tsuna by the throat, preparing to finish him off.
Just as he almost reaches Tsuna's neck, his weapon backfires, causing him to be injured. He falls and passes out as Adelheid comes in time to support him from the backlash.
Later it is revealed to the members of the Simon and Vongola that it was due to Daemon Spade's deception that the first generation Simon boss was killed. Enma did not react well, despite a new memory showing that Cozarto was saved by Primo's Guardian's. Adelheid mentioned only Tsuna can save "Him," now titled as the "King of Simon" and his only goal is to kill Tsunayoshi Sawada, at all costs. During their battle, Tsuna can hear the voice in Enma whispering for Tsuna to "Save" him and that he doesn't "want to be alone." After unleashing his Gravity Spheres unto Tsuna and creating a field of black holes, causing Tsuna having to use his Cambio Forma Ver. X, Enma realizes that Tsuna has come to rescue him, just like the Vongola Primo came to rescue Cozarto Simon.
He then snaps out of it, and thanks Tsuna for saving him. After learning from Tsuna that his pride is his friends, Enma included, the Vindice appear declaring Enma the loser, but refrain from imprisoning him in Vendicare Prison as the battle of the Guardians is not finished, and as a boss Enma must witness it to the end. Enma then witnesses Mukuro's battle with Daemon Spade. After Daemon is seemingly defeated and Julie is freed, he rushes to Julie's side as he awakens and Mukuro, now possessing the Mist Owl, declares that he cannot return to his body and that Daemon Spade must have taken it while he was possessing Chrome.
The Vindice then appear alerting them that Daemon Spade has indeed taken control of Mukuro's body and has broken out of the Vendicare Prison and shall make his way to kill the Vongola. When they are asked to take care of Daemon Spade Tsuna agrees to do so only if all of their friends are released since there is no more misunderstandings and ill-will between the two Mafia Famiglias. Enma supports this and agrees to this as well and the Vindice agree as well, willing to do so once Daemon Spade is defeated.
Daemon arrives and quickly displays his power, revealing he has all six of the Simon rings and the vonogla bangle of the sun and is capable of using the other Vongola Gears as well. All of Tsuna's guardians are quickly defeated and trapped within illusionary realms. Tsuna steps up to fight and Enma joins him. Daemon tries to trick Enma once more by talking about the death of his family at the hands of Tsuna's father. However Enma tells him to shut up because he will no longer believe his lies and that he will never betray Tsuna again because he knows Tsuna will never betray him. Daemon then reveals the truth of the incident, that it was all set up by him and that he killed Enma's family while posing as Tsuna's father. Enma and Tsuna are both enraged and complete a combo attack which hits Daemon, despite not planning anything ahead of time but just in that moment.
As the battle finally begins Reborn states that Enma and Tsuna are no longer the completely No Good Duo instead they are the Hyper Duo. Realizing the combined power of Tsuna and Enma, Daemon decides to get serious and uses all six Simon Rings and Vongola Gears and multiplies himself into six using the cloud's attribute of propgation, separating Tsuna and Enma to prevent them fighting together and coordinating their attacks, enabling Daemon to overwhelm both of them. When Dameon reveals that they need to attack all six of him at the same time, Enma decided to use his remaining Flames to create six blackholes and catches all six Daemon, gathering him around him and tells Tsuna to incinerate Daemon into ashes along with him as he says that this is the only way to defeat Daemon.
Fortunately for Enma, Chrome jumped to his side and protect him with full power Cortina Nebbia that also supported by Mukuro's flames to strengthening the barrier. Convinced that he would be safe, Tsuna fires the XX Burner. As the smoke from XX Burner cleared up, Daemon, who turned out to be alive, disguised as Enma and begun to attack Tsuna by breaking his bones before Enma could warn him in time. As he watched Tsuna about to be killed, Enma desperately tried to move to stop Daemon. As he stated that Tsuna is his first friend outside his Famiglia, Enma's Earth Simon Ring came off and flew to Tsuna's Vongola Ring, combining and form into new Ring, shocking everyone including himself. Using the newfound power of the combined Sky and Earth Flames, Tsuna defeats Daemon Spade, securing Enma's freedom from Vindice.
Enma listens to Daemon's story, and receives the final 'key' from Vindice with the others. Having finally made peace with the past and Tsuna, they move forward. Later on, he is seen running from a dog on the way to school, coincidentally dragging Tsuna into his predicament. The two then get hit by Shitt P., who chases after Gokudera, and later on a baseball consecutively hits them both on the head. Adelheid punishes the two for being late (pushed by her anger with Julie's flirtuous attitude) by hanging them upsidedown in nets from the school roof. Reborn notes that their idiotic actions would've been liked by Cozarto and Giotto, and the two laugh together.
Enma is shown to be heading to the river in Namimori to feed the cats that normally ask him for food, but find that Skull had already fed them a large amount of cat food. Enma recognizes Skull as an Arcobaleno when he sees Skull's Pacifier after Skull demanded that Enma fight for him in exchange for feeding the cats. Later, Enma is seen at home begging Adelheid to help Skull, although not understanding what Skull was asking them for help for, and later being ordered by Adelheid, who misunderstood just like Enma, to tuck Skull into bed.
Later, he meets Tsuna and Reborn, who were about to ask him to join their team, but find out that Enma decided to be Skull's only representative. He asked Tsuna for alliance, but both Skull and Reborn immediately refused, much to Tsuna's dismay. During the first day of the Representative Battle, Enma was attacked by Varia and was being overwhelmed. When the Varia was about to deliver a finishing blow towards the helpless Enma, he was saved by Skull, whose Arcobaleno Curse has been temporarily removed, using his Undead Body ability. Afterwards, out of gratitude, albeit reluctantly, Adelheid agrees for the rest of the Simon Ring Holders to become Skull's representatives.
On the second day, no one challenges Team Skull until just before the battle ends, whence a group of Vindice that eventually become known as Team Bermuda appear and defeat all of Team Skull in an instant, stealing their Rainbow Wristwatches to enter the battle as well. Team Skull is mortally wounded, but still alive at this point. At the end of the third battle day Tsuna arrives in Enma's hospital room asking for help. The next day, Enma, along with other people whom Tsuna had contacted gathered at Tsuna's house to discuss plan to defeat Team Bermuda.
On the fourth day, Enma, Tsuna, and Basil are chosen as Commando until responsible for defeating the Vindice one by one, starting with Alejandro while the other elite members hold up Jager, Small Gia, and Big Pino. With their teamwork, the trio able to defeat Ginger Bread and destroys Alejandro wrist watch. They immediately went to where Gokudera, Yamamoto, Chrome, and Flan are. Enma used his gravity manipulation to save the four of them from Big Pino's attack. He binds Big Pino and Small Gia while Yamamoto and Gokudera restrains them close enough to destroy the watches. With Chrome and Flan's illusions, Yamamoto and Gokudera are covered by layer of ceramic right before the dynamites explode, destroying the Vindice's watches without harming Gokudera and Yamamoto.
After resting for three minutes from their battle against Small gia and Big Pino, they immediately fight Jager who had already beaten most of the elite team members, leaving only Mukuro and Hibari. Enma stopped Jager's attack with his gravity manipulation when the latter tried to attack the former. However, he was quickly defeated by Jager along with Chrome and Flan. Before he went unconscious, he lended his Earth Simon Ring to Tsuna. After Bermuda and Jager were defeated, he was taken to Namimori Hospital with the other injured members. In the final chapter, he is shown with his Family when Tsuna thought that now he has friends that he could rely on when necessary.
Their relationship hasn't been shown clearly, but judging from Enma's anger and reaction when he fought Tsuna and cried at him to give her back as well as when Enma dreamt about her as he kept calling her name, it can be implied that Enma loved her very much and shared close relationship with her.
Their relationship hasn't been shown clearly, but Enma also seems to care about his parents and was extremely upset because of their death along with his sister, Mami, as shown from his anger and reaction when Enma revealed to Tsuna that his father killed them.
Enma is normally seen taking orders from her even though he is the Simon boss. However, Adelheid seemes to genuinely care for Enma as seen when she becomes concerned about him when he becomes depressed about Rauji's loss, when Enma almost kills Tsuna, and when Enma lies on his bed while he kept calling his sister's name. Adelheid accompanied him and assured him that she understood his feelings and promised that she would purge the Vongola.
Rauji is devoted and loyal to Enma. So far, he's the only member that truly regards Enma as the boss of the Famiglia, commenting that he has strong eyes. Enma himself also cares for Rauji, since he's the very first person to be upset and agitated when Rauji lost and was taken to Vendicare Prison.
Koyo seems to have little to no respect for Enma even though he is the Boss of the Simon Famiglia. He also frequently makes fun of Enma, calling him "Loser Enma". Despite this, Koyo is actually cares for Enma and have faith in him to lead their Famiglia back to its glory. Enma also hold him dear as seen when he mentioned his name along with other's names who are precious to him before his fight with Tsuna.
Enma held deep hatred for Daemon for manipulating him and his Guardians to fight against Tsuna and his Family and set a trap for Cozarto that led to Simon Famiglia's isolation and persecution for years. Daemon viewed Enma and his Guardians as merely one of his tools and weapons to create the Vongola Famiglia that he desired and was apathetic of their sufferings. Enma's hatred was deepened when Daemon revealed that he was the one who killed his parents and sister, angrily stating that he will never forgive him. However, upon knowing Daemon's real reason to gone that far, Enma seemed to symphatize him.
Tsuna is similar to Enma, as they were both said to be "no-good" and "losers", as well as being the unwilling tenth Boss of their respective Famiglias. Their friendship once was strained when Enma thought that Tsuna had lied to him and his father killed his parents and sister, to the point that he nearly killed Tsuna because of Daemon's scheme. However, despite all the stressful situation their relationship has been through, they remain excellent friends, similar to Giotto and Cozarto's relationship. This is evidenced by Enma's confidence that Tsuna would never betray him, and Tsuna's devotion to Enma's safety.
Unlike others, Enma treats Skull nicely and agrees to help him despite just known him for short times. He even asked his Guardians to become Skull's representatives (even though he, at first, didn't understand it) and when they refused to, he's the only who willingly to become Skull's representative. So far, he's the first person who doesn't look down on Skull and care for his well-being as shown when he fought Varia. When Adelheid angry at Skull for dragging Enma into danger, Enma quickly came to Skull's defense, saying that Skull's is a good person and grateful that he had saved him. Skull has been shown seemingly ordering Enma around since he's his representative, but also showed concern for him and even protected him when he was about to be killed by Varia.
Weapons and Abilities
Enma is capable of using the Dying Will Flame which is a form of high pressured energy capable of having destructive powers or purifying evil auras. It initially lies within a person's body until it is awakened, helping increase a person's strength. When a person is able to control the full potential and power of the Dying Will they are able to go to (Hyper) Dying Will Mode at any time.
- Hyper Dying Will Mode: This occurs when one has been hit with the Criticism Shot or has ingested two Dying Will Pills. Hyper Dying Will Mode removes internal limiters instead of the external ones, thus releasing one's hidden awareness.
- Earth Flame: Enma possesses one of the Seven Flames of the Earth. He possesses the Earth flame, which allows him to manipulate gravity.
- Simon Ring: Enma possesses one of the seven Simon Rings, sealed by the Vongola Sin. When activated, his ring becomes the Simon Gauntlet on both his forearms, surrounded by rings of text. When he activates it later after its up-graded by the Vongola Sin, the gauntlets has now gone further up his forearm and onto his shoulders, forming a wing-like armor on his back. The gauntlet's themselves have changed in appearance. The gauntlets is similar to Tsuna's X-Gloves as they can release flames for propulsion abilities.
- Gravity Manipulation: With his attribute of Earth being Gravity, Enma can manipulate the local Gravity to any extent that he wishes. This power was previously misconceived as a form of telekinesis due to his ability to manipulate objects by carefully maneuvering the gravity around it accordingly. It is later revealed by the Varia in their battle with Enma that he's unable to manipulate gravity accurately when his hands are restricted.
- Gravita della Terra: With his Earth Flame of Gravity, Enma is able to create spheres of Gravity with gravity equal to that of a star, causing Tsuna to struggle in his fight while his Vongola Gear is equipped. It is assumed Enma is able to produce as many of these spheres as he desires and fire them toward his target.The gravity can be use to change the trajectories of an enemy or an ally attack.
- Gravity Spheres: Enma creates smaller gravity spheres than that of Gravita della Terra that uses its own gravity to surround itself in earth, whereupon Enma can direct it to smash into his enemy.
- Super Gravita Black Hole: By increasing the Gravity of his Gravity Sphere he can cause them to collapse in on themselves and create a black hole. These produce much more gravity than the aforementioned spheres. At full power, Tsuna is unable to escape from the force of these black holes outside of his Cambio Forma. Enma can also create a black hole in front of his own body with more power than the ones emitted from the Gravity Spheres.
- The emblem of the Simon Famiglia can be seen in Enma's eyes.
- Enma's name is a homophone for the Japanese name Yama, the judge of the dead who decides a person's fate in the afterlife, although it is written with different kanji.
- The kanji for 'Enma' roughly means True Flame.
- In the most recent poll, Enma ranked 15th in popularity and 12th in strength.
- In the Reborn Fandom, he is referred to as 00, as En and Ma (derived from maru) can both mean circle, used as an alternate for zero.
- He mistook Natsu as Tsuna's cat when it is actually a lion cub and seems to get along well with him.
- His surname, Kozato, could be a Japanese transliteration of Cozarto, the name of the first Simon boss.
- According to Reborn! ēlDLIVE Character's 365 art book, Enma likes cats, everyone at his family, Skull, Tsuna, and a new friend. He dislikes bullies, Adelheid’s scolding, Sermon, when Skull repeated his story for a countless time.
- Enma and Tsuna have some similarities:
- Both consider themselves no good Bosses.
- Both can be hopeless when they are out of Hyper Dying Will Mode.
- Both are reluctant Bosses of their Famiglias.
- Neither wants to be involved with the Mafia.
- Enma is known as Tsuna's equally pitiful friend.
- Both were given nicknames due to their personality (Enma was known as 'Loser Enma', while Tsuna was known as 'No-Good Tsuna').
- Both can enter Hyper Dying Will Mode, although Enma's version is much different, due to his Dying Will Flames of the Earth.
- Both have similar appearances as the first Bosses of their Famiglias.
- Both are the Tenth Bosses of their respective Famiglias.
- Both are considered kind by their respective Guardians.
