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.

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.

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]].

[[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 afterwards, 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.{{cite}}
   
== Abilities and Weapons ==
+
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 to 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.

Appearances

Kyoya Hibari, commonly referred to as Hibari, is one of the major characters in the Katekyō 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

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, Alaude, 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.

Personality

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.

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.

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 afterwards, 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.[citation needed]

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 to 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.

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.
