'''Kyoya Hibari''', commonly referred to as '''Hibari''', is one of the major characters in the ''[[Katekyo Hitman Reborn!]]'' series. He is the leader of the [[Namimori Middle Disciplinary Committee]], a group of delinquents who are all loyal to him. He was nominated and accepted as the [[Vongola Decimo & Guardians|tenth generation Cloud Guardian]] of the [[Vongola Famiglia]]. He is often seen napping on the rooftop of [[Namimori Middle School]], alongside [[Hibird]].

== Appearance ==
  +
[[File:Anime character sheet hibari.jpg|thumb|left|Hibari's character design.]]
  +
Hibari is a young man with an average height and short black hair with a fringe that joins at the center of his face. He has narrow gray eyes, often intimidating those who see them. He bears a striking resemblance to the first generation Cloud Guardian, [[Alaudi]], as well as the [[Arcobaleno]], [[Fon]].
   
'''Kyoya Hibari''' is the leader of the [[Namimori Middle Discipline Committee]], a group of delinquents who all are loyal to Hibari. He is a violent delinquent who uses his status to harass other students. As shown several times in the series, he prefers to be alone and cares little for his subordinates. He loves Namimori more than anything and will often say "I'll bite you to death," or "''kamikorosu,''" to those that disturb Namimori Middle School. Hibari is very proud of his school and is apparently the only person who likes their school's anthem, even using it as his ringtone. In the [[Kokuyo Arc]], he adopted one of the Kokuyo assassins, Birds' bird. The bird (subsequently nicknamed "Hibird" due to its connection to Hibari) becomes attached to Hibari. Hibird can also sing the school's anthem as Hibari loves it. Reborn piqued Hibari's curiosity early on in the series, and Hibari considers him a worthy opponent, having a strong urge to fight him. However, he has a soft spot for small animals and later to I-Pin after she gave him a Valentine's Day chocolate. He hates to be indebted to anyone and strives to pay them back as soon as possible.
+
Hibari's most common outfit is his Disciplinary Committee uniform. He wears a white long-sleeved shirt, black pants, black shoes, and a black ''gakuran'' top worn on his shoulders, with the committee's armband pinned on the top's left sleeve. He also wears the standard Namimori Middle School summer uniform, along with the armband. During the [[Varia Arc]], Hibari wears the winter uniform, also with the armband.
   
==Plot Overview==
+
[[File:Hibari kyoya.PNG|thumb|left|Future Hibari's character design.]]
===[[Daily Life Arc]]===
+
After gaining the [[Vongola Ring|Cloud Vongola Ring]], Hibari wears it on his right middle finger. He wears the [[Bracelet of the Cloud Version X]] on his left wrist.
   
Hibari beat up [[Tsuna]], [[Gokudera]], and [[Yamamoto]] for using his office as their new Base. [[Reborn (character)|Reborn]] saved them from him and as such Hibari gained interest in fighting him. Later, [[Shamal|Dr. Shamal]] gave Hibari the Sakura-kura virus so that Tsuna's Family could view the Sakura in peace.
+
Ten-years-later Hibari has changed to wearing a simple black suit, with a purple shirt and black necktie. His hair is also shorter, having been cut to appear messier, and with hardly any fringe. When not training or fighting, he would wear a black ''kinagashi''.
   
===[[Kokuyo Arc]]===
+
== Personality ==
[[File:Mukuro_beats_Hibari.png|thumb|left|250px|Mukuro uses Hibari's Sakura weakness against him]]Due to the attacks on students of [[Namimori]] Junior High, Hibari went to [[Kokuyo Land]] to fight the gang's leader. He was later defeated by [[Mukuro]], who took advantage of his Sakura-kura disease. He was imprisoned but later freed by Gokudera. Hibari then defeated both [[Ken]] and [[Chikusa]] and was given the cure to his illness. He then fought Mukuro again, but fell unconscious due to his previous injuries. Mukuro later tried to possess Hibari's body, but stopped due to the severity of the wounds.

{{Quote|theme=cloud|The word “discipline” is something that I will never give up no matter what. But it’s not because it is my pride that I will not give it up. It’s because I cannot give it up. That is why it is my pride.|Kyoya Hibari|[[Chapter 322]]}}[[File:Dying-Will-Return.png|thumb|200px|Hibari's eagerness to fight.]]
  +
As stated by others, Hibari is a scary character with no care for the well-being of others, preferring to do whatever it takes to get what he wants. He has full confidence in his own strength and power. This often leads to his opponents surprising him, as he doesn't think before attacking. As the head of Namimori Middle's Disciplinary Committee, Hibari uses authority to assault those that get on his nerves, including his own subordinates.
   
===[[Varia Arc]]===
+
He prefers to be alone and hates crowding. This leads him to beat anyone who he thinks is crowding around him too much. He is often seen taking a nap or observing students from the school's rooftop.
   
[[File:Hibari_Beats_the_Mosca.PNG|thumb|250px|Hibari beats the Gola Mosca]]Hibari later was made the Vongola Cloud Guardian but refused to be taught by [[Dino]] unless he could beat him in battle. They fought in multiple environments so as to increase Hibari's fighting experience and so that he wouldn't see the damage to the school. As a result, when Hibari reappeared after the [[Storm Ring Battle|Storm Match]] he was only calmed by the prospect of fighting Mukuro.
+
A rare trait about him is his love for small animals, ranging from birds to hedgehogs. He is also shown to have a soft spot for [[I-Pin]], having accepted her Valentine's Day chocolates with a smile and not taking money from [[Tsunayoshi Sawada|Tsuna]] at a festival upon seeing I-Pin worried.
During the [[Cloud Ring Battle]], he appeared to defeat the [[Gola Mosca]] robot and attempted to battle with [[Xanxus]]. However, Gola Mosca once again became active and injured Hibari. During the [[Sky Ring Battle]], he managed to resist the Death Heater venom but was injured while fighting [[Belphegor]]. He retired after rescuing Gokudera and Yamamoto.{{-}}
 
   
===[[Future Arc]]===
+
Hibari is fiercely loyal to his school and its rules, going so far as to punish others for breaking them even if they aren't students or at the school, such as [[Genkishi]].
[[File:Hibari's_Ambush.PNG|thumb|left|250px|Future Hibari ambushes the Millefiore squad]]In the Future, Hibari searched for information concerning [[Box Weapon]]s by starting [[The Foundation]]. He also worked together in secret with the future Tsuna and the [[Millefiore]] spy [[Irie Shoichi]]. Hibari later saved Gokudera and Yamamoto from [[Gamma]]. He agreed to train Tsuna, trapping him in his globe of Needles, resulting in a halucinogenic state where Tsuna was granted his [[X-Gloves|Inheritance]]. [[File:Hibari_vs_Genkishi.PNG|thumb|264px|Genkishi uses his four swords against Hibari]]Hibari also helped Chrome draw out the power of her ring when her illusionary organs started to fail. Hibari later, single handedly, defended the hideout against the [[Millefiore]] Raid (as instructed by Shouchi). After this, he infiltrated the [[Melone Base]] and fought [[Genkishi]]. The two were evenly matched, though Genkishi gained the advantage. As he was about to land a finishing blow, Hibari was replaced by his Past self (a fact that his future self was also made aware of). After receiving help from injured [[Vongola Guardians|Guardians]] and [[Kusakabe]], Hibari was able to separate the group from Genkishi when his Hedgehog Box Weapon expanded at great speed due to the strength of his [[Dying Will Flames]]. Later (along with the other Vongola Guardians) he was given a Vongola Box Weapon.
 
====[[Arcobaleno Trials Arc]]====
 
During his Trial of Charisma, [[Skull]] paid [[Viper]] to trick Mukuro and Hibari into beating up Tsuna. However the two became more focused in battling one another. Eventually Tsuna was able to convince the two to stop, thus demonstrating his charisma and passing the trial. Later, during Reborn's Trial of Leadership, Hibari was defeated by Reborn (along with the rest of the [[Vongola Guardians]]). Hibari later destroyed the robot, sent by [[Verde]] to kill him, and joined the other Guardians and [[Arcobaleno]] in fighting Verde's army.
 
   
  +
[[File:Helping Gokudera Because He Helped Hibari.PNG|thumb|Hibari's helpful side.]]
  +
Hibari dislikes working together with anybody due to feeling indebted and restrained. He strives to pay them back as soon as possible. He cannot stand being restrained and absolutely refuses to allow himself to be controlled.
   
====[[Choice Arc]]====
+
Future Hibari is shown to be more calm and observant about his opponents, and outwardly admits to hating illusionists because of his grudge towards [[Mukuro Rokudo]], the first person to have defeated him. His desire to be alone and attack people that annoy him still remains, though his actions are shown with more thought. Future Hibari is also seen being more respectful to Future Tsuna, showing that he has accepted him as his boss, seen in one of the flashbacks of [[Shoichi Irie]].
He later left the group and encountered the Future Dino, who began training him once again. After the Vongola lost the Choice battle, Hibari used his Vongola Box to slow down the [[Six Funeral Wreaths]], in order to help the Vongola escaped.
 
====[[Inheritance Succession Arc]]====
 
   
  +
== Abilities ==
  +
[[File:Hibari Reflexes.PNG|thumb|Hibari's fast reflexes.]]
  +
Hibari's reputation as a frightening individual definitely precedes him, earning the respect and fear of many people, both present and future. He is the strongest of the tenth generation Vongola Guardians and has hardly ever lost a fight in the series. In the times he faced against [[Hayato Gokudera|Gokudera]] and [[Takeshi Yamamoto|Yamamoto]], he easily defeated them in their first initial encounters, but afterward, they grew strong enough to give him a challenge, but not enough to excite him, as the only ones that could do that were [[Reborn]] and Future Tsuna.<ref>{{Refanime|87}}</ref><ref>{{Refmanga|chap=159}}</ref>
   
[[File:Hibari_Ignoring_Alude.PNG|thumb|250px|Hibari losing intrest in the Trial]]After being sent back to the past to train, the Guardians met [[Giotto]], who revealed that the 10th Generation Guardians had yet to inherit the true power of the Vongola. Later [[Skull]] became Hibari's tutor as they both possess the [[Cloud Flame]]. That night [[Alaude]] appeared before him from the Vongola Ring. Hibari asked Alaude if he's strong or weak to which Alaude replied that he's strong, but has no interest in facing a child and left. Later that week, Alaude appeared again to give Hibari his trial. Hibari prepared himself to battle but Alaude told him that the trial would not involve fighting, making Hibari lose interest and walk away. Alaude then told Hibari that he shall deem him worthy of his Inheritance if he demonstrated his value as the Cloud Guardian, warning him that he only had until the end of the day. [[File:Ryohei and Hibari Worthy.PNG|thumb|left|250px|Ryohei and Hibari deemed worthy]][[Ryohei]] tried to persuade Hibari to take his trial and ended up annoying Hibari with his persistence, and as the two prepared to fight on the school roof, Skull arrived via an airship and, angered by Hibari's lack of obedience, began to attack. During the fight the airship began to lose control and crash towards the School, however the Ryohei and Hibari worked together and managed to stop it while defeating Skull and protecting [[Kyoko]] and [[Haru]]. Afterwards Hibari agreed to take the trial in order to repay Ryohei for protecting the school but at that moment Knuckle showed up, announcing that Ryohei had already passed his Trial by convincing Hibari. Alaude also appeared, declaring that Hibari too, had passed the test by refraining from socializing with the family while at the same time adapting to the situation to protect those that needed protection. Later, while the other Guardians were trapped in [[Demon Spade]]s illusion, Skull took Hibari's armband so that he would chase him to Kokuyo Land. Once there Hibari went on a rampage and broke the illusion around the other Guardians.
+
One of the most terrifying traits of Hibari is his immense resilience and endurance. He is still able to fight despite having several broken bones and even capable of resisting Death Heather poison that was capable of stopping elephants from moving. Later on, Hibari has become very adept at using [[Ring]]s although he usually shatters them after one use, due to the intensity of his flames. Hibari is capable of emitting massive Dying Will Flames with the Cloud [[Vongola Ring]]. The massive flame overloaded his Box Weapon and made the [[Porcospino Nuvola]] drunk from the flames, causing it to go out of control.
   
====After Choice====
+
=== Techniques ===
  +
* '''[[Flame Radar|Cloud Flame Radar]]''': Hibari uses his Ring's Flames as a radar by thinly spreading the Flame over a wide area and using the vibrations to detect anything that enters the area. This allows him to counter illusions by using it to sense where the actual object is, as seen in his battle against Genkishi's [[Spettro Nudibranchi]].
   
[[File:Hibari_vs_Daisy.jpg|thumb|212px|Hibari fights Daisy]]Later, back in the future, Hibari and Dino faced off against [[Daisy]] at Namimori High. Daisy opened his Hell Hole and defeated Dino. However, Hibari was able to defeat Daisy once he used his [[Cambio Forma]] and confiscated the [[Mare Rings|Sun Mare Ring]]. He later appeared to be killed by [[Kikyo]], though it turned out to be an Illusion created by Mukuro. Later, Hibari had his Dying Will Flames drained by [[Ghost]] (along with everyone else present).
+
== Equipment ==
  +
[[File:Hibari Back To Normal 2.PNG|thumb|Hibari's pair of tonfas.]]
  +
* '''[[Cloud Tonfas|Tonfas]]''': Hibari's main weapon for combat is a pair of tonfas. It is revealed that they hold hidden compartments. The ends of the tonfas can release flails and the sides contain spikes and hooks.
  +
[[File:Vongola Cloud Hedgehog2.PNG|thumb|Vongola Cloud Hedgehog]]
  +
* '''[[Porcospino Nuvola]]''': Hibari's [[Box Weapon]], nicknamed as '''Roll'''. It is a small purple hedgehog with silver spikes. Hibari uses his hedgehogs when he fights opponents he deems as weak. With Cloud Flame's [[Propagation]] characteristic, Roll is able to multiply in number and grow to large proportions.
  +
** '''[[Porcospino Nuvola ver. Vongola]]''': Hibari's original Cloud Hedgehog Roll is later integrated into his Vongola Box. It now appears as a Hedgehog with larger, but fewer, spikes than the other Cloud Hedgehogs.
  +
*** '''[[Porcospino Nuvola ver. Vongola#Cambio Forma|Alaudi's Handcuffs]]''': Roll's [[Cambio Forma]] takes the form of a pair of spiked black handcuffs. He can multiply the number of handcuffs by using the Cloud Flame's Propagation characteristic.
  +
* '''[[Vongola Ring|Cloud Vongola Ring]]''': Won after the [[Vongola Ring Conflict]] against the [[Varia]]. Hibari wears the [[Ring]] on his right hand. He is able to open [[Cloud Flame|Cloud-attribute]] [[Box Weapon]]s.
  +
** '''[[Bracelet of the Cloud Version X]]''': The upgraded Vongola Cloud Ring, combined with Hibari's Vongola Box animal Roll. In battle, Roll now has jewels on both his forehead and chest. He is now capable of merging directly with Hibari for his Cambio Forma.
   
===[[Inheritance Ceremony Arc]]===
+
== Character Reception ==
After being sent back to the past Hibari soon started arguing with a transfer from [[Shimon]], [[Adelheid]] about the control of the School. The next day, they start fighting in the rooftop but were are stopped by Tsuna.
+
On November 7, 2007, a character CD entitled "Sakura Addiction," featuring Mukuro and Hibari, was released, and became the most successful ''Reborn!'' character CD, debuting in ninth place in the Oricon charts. The single reached its peak at seventh place, but remained in the chart's Top 40 until mid-January 2008. It contains duets and individual songs sung by both voice actors: Toshinobu Iida and Takashi Kondō. There are two available covers; both show one character as the main feature, with the other shown in the background with his back turned. The song "[[Sakura addiction]]," which was a duet sung by both voice actors, was used as the fifth ending theme for the series.
   
==Relationships==
+
For the second annual Seiyū Awards, Toshinobu Iida and Takashi Kondō each received a nomination for "Best Musical Performance," for "Sakura Addiction."
   
===[[Mukuro Rokudo]]===
+
== Character Songs ==
Hibari displays bitter resentment and rivalry towards Mukuro Rokudo due to humiliation over his defeat. As such Hibari appears to have developed an obsession to defeat Mukuro and from this, a hate for all illusionists. Reborn is even able to quell Hibari's rage by using the posibility of him fighting Mukuro again. Mukuro seems to have some interest in Hibari, after he was able to move with so many injuries. He even have his subordinates Ken, Chikusa, and Chrome to watch his match against Gola Mosca. In the future, they still continue with this rivalry and have yet to finish (since Mukuro is still imprison). However, they seem at least, to have a respect towards each other, Mukuro even sent a map of Melone Base to Hibari when he disguised himself as Byakuran's subordinate.

== Trivia ==
In the Databook, he commented that he can't understand Tsuna since he's weak sometimes and strong sometimes (Dying Will Mode). At first, Tsuna didn't interest him, but in the Future, Tsuna already gained his respect. Hibari states the only two people that make him joyed to fight is Reborn and Future Tsuna. Together with Irie and Vongola Decimo (Future Tsuna), they planned to send Tsuna and the other Guardians from the Past to the Future. Tsuna also sees him as valuable comrade at fighting and thinks very highly of him. More often, though, Tsuna sees him as a scary person and doesn't want to incur his wrath.

===[[Ryohei Sasagawa]]===
+
* "Hibari" can be translated as "skylark", a species of perching birds.
Both of them are the two oldest Guardians. Ryohei acknowledges Hibari's power and had already visited his house several times to challenge him but was always beaten by him (according to the artbook). On the other hand, Hibari only sees him as a "noisy animal" and treats him like the others. However, in the Future, they seem to already have a respect toward each other. Ryohei even invited him to drink together at some event which Hibari refused, and sometimes their thoughts clash with each other and create an argument, which ends up with Ryohei challenging him to fight. In the Inheritance Succession Arc (anime only), Ryohei is the only one who managed to convince Hibari to take the trial. This makes Ryohei the second person to be able to convice Hibari on something, after Dino.
+
* The first kanji in his name translates to means "cloud", reflecting his flame attribute and role as Cloud Guardian.
  +
* A common [[Fanon:Shorthands|shorthand]] of his name is "18", a combination of ({{Japanese|一|hi|one}}) and ({{Japanese|八|ha or ba|eight}}).
  +
* His favorite food is traditional Japanese food and hamburger steak. <ref name=data77p56/> The latter which he shares with Tsuna.<ref>{{refanime|19}}</ref>
  +
* His favorite phrase is "Kamikorosu" ({{Japanese|咬み殺す|kami korosu|I'll bite you to death}}) and "Wao" ({{Japanese|ワオ|Wao}}).<ref name=data77p56/>
  +
* In the 2007 and 2008 popularity poll for "the character I want as a groom", Hibari ranked first.
  +
* His pride is Namimori Middle's Disciplinary Committee and the iron hammer for those who are against its order.
  +
* Hibari seems to think that the Dying Will Flames are fueled by irritation instead of resolve, due to him thinking that both were the same thing.
  +
* Hibari shares the same seiyuu, [[Takashi Kondō]], as Alaudi and Fon.
  +
* According to Kusakabe, Hibari cannot stand drinking alcohol.{{cite}}
  +
[[File:Hibari motorcycle bike.png|thumb|Hibari's bike.]]
  +
* Even though he is still in Namimori Middle School, Hibari apparently owns and rides a motorcycle.<ref name="ch19">{{Refmanga|chap=19}}</ref>
  +
* Hibari was featured on the cover of the eighteenth volume, the volume number is the same as his shorthand.
  +
* Due to a previous infection with the sakura-kura disease (which was later cured), he feels uneasy whenever around cherry blossoms and loses his will to fight and even refuses to even talk about it when Haru bring it up as a subject in Haru-Haru Interview.
  +
* He lives in a large traditional Japanese house with the same style as the one the Foundation built in the future.
  +
* Fon inferred that he and Hibari were related, but changed the subject saying that Hibari would get angry if Fon explained the relationship.<ref name=v31/>
  +
* In Everyone's One Day Activities, he made a new room in Nami-Middle for all Hibirds that he owns.
   
===[[Dino]]===
+
== References ==
He is Hibari's home-tutor during the Ring Conflict. But Hibari doesn't see him as his teacher and doesn't care about it, only wanting to bite him to death. Dino sees him as his student and acknowledges his skills when he trains him, but also finds it hard to train him since Hibari has no interest in listening to him. Moreover, Dino seems to be the only one who can convince Hibari to stop fighting, though at first, it was very hard to do so. However in the Future, he is able to convince him more easily and always accompanies him if he "runs off" because of his dislike of crowds. They are not on good terms or close to each other, but Dino thinks of him as a reliable Guardian for Tsuna. Hibari doesn't seem to hate him, although he is sometimes irritated by him.

In the Future, Hibari has become adept at using Rings. His Flame has become so intense that, he shatters normal Rings when he uses them. The younger Hibari is also capable of emitting a massive Dying Will Flame with the [[Vongola Ring]]. His capacity to create a powerful Dying Will Flame is due to his resolve; his "irritation" for others.

Kyoya Hibari, commonly referred to as Hibari, is one of the major characters in the Katekyo Hitman Reborn! series. He is the leader of the Namimori Middle Disciplinary Committee, a group of delinquents who are all loyal to him. He was nominated and accepted as the tenth generation Cloud Guardian of the Vongola Famiglia. He is often seen napping on the rooftop of Namimori Middle School, alongside Hibird.

Appearance Edit

Anime character sheet hibari

Hibari's character design.

Hibari is a young man with an average height and short black hair with a fringe that joins at the center of his face. He has narrow gray eyes, often intimidating those who see them. He bears a striking resemblance to the first generation Cloud Guardian, Alaudi, as well as the ArcobalenoFon.

Hibari's most common outfit is his Disciplinary Committee uniform. He wears a white long-sleeved shirt, black pants, black shoes, and a black gakuran top worn on his shoulders, with the committee's armband pinned on the top's left sleeve. He also wears the standard Namimori Middle School summer uniform, along with the armband. During the Varia Arc, Hibari wears the winter uniform, also with the armband.

Hibari kyoya

Future Hibari's character design.

After gaining the Cloud Vongola Ring, Hibari wears it on his right middle finger. He wears the Bracelet of the Cloud Version X on his left wrist.

Ten-years-later Hibari has changed to wearing a simple black suit, with a purple shirt and black necktie. His hair is also shorter, having been cut to appear messier, and with hardly any fringe. When not training or fighting, he would wear a black kinagashi.

Personality Edit

The word “discipline” is something that I will never give up no matter what. But it’s not because it is my pride that I will not give it up. It’s because I cannot give it up. That is why it is my pride.
Kyoya Hibari, Chapter 322
Dying-Will-Return

Hibari's eagerness to fight.

As stated by others, Hibari is a scary character with no care for the well-being of others, preferring to do whatever it takes to get what he wants. He has full confidence in his own strength and power. This often leads to his opponents surprising him, as he doesn't think before attacking. As the head of Namimori Middle's Disciplinary Committee, Hibari uses authority to assault those that get on his nerves, including his own subordinates.

He prefers to be alone and hates crowding. This leads him to beat anyone who he thinks is crowding around him too much. He is often seen taking a nap or observing students from the school's rooftop.

A rare trait about him is his love for small animals, ranging from birds to hedgehogs. He is also shown to have a soft spot for I-Pin, having accepted her Valentine's Day chocolates with a smile and not taking money from Tsuna at a festival upon seeing I-Pin worried.

Hibari is fiercely loyal to his school and its rules, going so far as to punish others for breaking them even if they aren't students or at the school, such as Genkishi.

Helping Gokudera Because He Helped Hibari

Hibari's helpful side.

Hibari dislikes working together with anybody due to feeling indebted and restrained. He strives to pay them back as soon as possible. He cannot stand being restrained and absolutely refuses to allow himself to be controlled.

Future Hibari is shown to be more calm and observant about his opponents, and outwardly admits to hating illusionists because of his grudge towards Mukuro Rokudo, the first person to have defeated him. His desire to be alone and attack people that annoy him still remains, though his actions are shown with more thought. Future Hibari is also seen being more respectful to Future Tsuna, showing that he has accepted him as his boss, seen in one of the flashbacks of Shoichi Irie.

Abilities Edit

Hibari Reflexes

Hibari's fast reflexes.

Hibari's reputation as a frightening individual definitely precedes him, earning the respect and fear of many people, both present and future. He is the strongest of the tenth generation Vongola Guardians and has hardly ever lost a fight in the series. In the times he faced against Gokudera and Yamamoto, he easily defeated them in their first initial encounters, but afterward, they grew strong enough to give him a challenge, but not enough to excite him, as the only ones that could do that were Reborn and Future Tsuna.[5][6]

One of the most terrifying traits of Hibari is his immense resilience and endurance. He is still able to fight despite having several broken bones and even capable of resisting Death Heather poison that was capable of stopping elephants from moving. Later on, Hibari has become very adept at using Rings although he usually shatters them after one use, due to the intensity of his flames. Hibari is capable of emitting massive Dying Will Flames with the Cloud Vongola Ring. The massive flame overloaded his Box Weapon and made the Porcospino Nuvola drunk from the flames, causing it to go out of control.

Techniques Edit

  • Cloud Flame Radar: Hibari uses his Ring's Flames as a radar by thinly spreading the Flame over a wide area and using the vibrations to detect anything that enters the area. This allows him to counter illusions by using it to sense where the actual object is, as seen in his battle against Genkishi's Spettro Nudibranchi.

Equipment Edit

Hibari Back To Normal 2

Hibari's pair of tonfas.

  • Tonfas: Hibari's main weapon for combat is a pair of tonfas. It is revealed that they hold hidden compartments. The ends of the tonfas can release flails and the sides contain spikes and hooks.
Vongola Cloud Hedgehog2

Vongola Cloud Hedgehog

  • Porcospino Nuvola: Hibari's Box Weapon, nicknamed as Roll. It is a small purple hedgehog with silver spikes. Hibari uses his hedgehogs when he fights opponents he deems as weak. With Cloud Flame's Propagation characteristic, Roll is able to multiply in number and grow to large proportions.
    • Porcospino Nuvola ver. Vongola: Hibari's original Cloud Hedgehog Roll is later integrated into his Vongola Box. It now appears as a Hedgehog with larger, but fewer, spikes than the other Cloud Hedgehogs.
      • Alaudi's Handcuffs: Roll's Cambio Forma takes the form of a pair of spiked black handcuffs. He can multiply the number of handcuffs by using the Cloud Flame's Propagation characteristic.
  • Cloud Vongola Ring: Won after the Vongola Ring Conflict against the Varia. Hibari wears the Ring on his right hand. He is able to open Cloud-attribute Box Weapons.
    • Bracelet of the Cloud Version X: The upgraded Vongola Cloud Ring, combined with Hibari's Vongola Box animal Roll. In battle, Roll now has jewels on both his forehead and chest. He is now capable of merging directly with Hibari for his Cambio Forma.

Character Reception Edit

On November 7, 2007, a character CD entitled "Sakura Addiction," featuring Mukuro and Hibari, was released, and became the most successful Reborn! character CD, debuting in ninth place in the Oricon charts. The single reached its peak at seventh place, but remained in the chart's Top 40 until mid-January 2008.
