FANDOM


In the Katekyo Hitman Reborn! Fandom, several characters' names are shortened or abbreviated to avoid having to type the character's name all over again. Some characters have either a number (e.g. Tsuna is 27), a letter (e.g. Lambo is L), or an abbreviation (e.g. Genkishi is Gen). Not all characters as of yet have an assigned Shorthand, and several may overlap, which usually results in finding new ways to manipulate pronunciations, sometimes even using other languages' numbers (e.g. Uni is Latin for 1, so her number is 01). The shorthands are mostly used for naming different pairings (e.g. Colonnello and Lal Mirch is 5666 while Bianchi and Reborn is 88R).

As previously mentioned, the fandom numbers usually come about as a manipulation of pronunciation. For instance, Tsuna's number is 27 because in Japanese, "tsu" means two, and "na" means seven. Thus, "Tsu" + "Na" = 27. Another example is Gokudera's number, 59; "go" means five in Japanese and "ku" means 9. Thus, "Go" + "Ku" = 59. Further examples include Hibari's number (which is 18 because of "Hi" [one] and "Ba" [eight]) or Rokudo's number (which is 69 because of "Ro" [six] and "Ku" [nine]).

To reduce ambiguity, abbreviations such as Lam for Lambo, or Bel for Belphegor are made, as they hard to search.

Not all pairings are named using the same shorthand method. Often, people will write the full names or use a different variation of the shorthand. For example, Lal Mirch x Colonnello isn't always "ColoLal" or "5666," but sometimes LalNello, an amusing portmanteau of the names.
