Overview
Synopsis

Lampow[1] was the first generation Lightning Guardian of the Vongola Famiglia. Lampow was a spoiled, lazy and selfish son of a nobleman, however, Giotto chose him to be his Guardian.

Character Outline[]

Appearance[]

Lampow has light green hair and electric blue eyes. He has a small black lightning bolt symbol below his right eye. Lampow wears a white flannel shirt that has leather ties around the wrists, and he also wears blue pants.

Personality[]

He is very spoiled and cowardly like Lambo, his cowardly side evidenced in Volume 34, where a side picture reveals that he was reluctant to help the Simon Famiglia during the massive Mafia war even when Giotto ordered him to out of fear. He also has shown to think highly of himself due to his position as son of the lord, like when he introduced himself to Lambo. He is also lazy when it comes to doing his duty as a Vongola Guardian; he refused to deem Lambo worthy before he even tested him until Giotto convinced him, and even then, he made Lambo's inheritance test easy just so he could finish his duty quickly. Ironically, he also stated that he disliked kids like Lambo and could not stand them while his character was such and in Drama CD, G treated him like one, occasionally calling him a "brat". However, he still maintains a high respect for his boss, where he claims he cannot disobey Giotto's orders and Giotto seems to trust Lampow enough to send him to fight in the frontlines despite his personality coward.

Weapons and Abilities[]

Lampo's Shield: The original shield was somewhat wok-like black shield, while the cambio forma shield consists of two horns and the Roman Numeral I in the middle. It also forms a helmet with the Lightning Crest in the middle and two rings encircling his own horns. This form has incredible defensive abilities and can also fire out intense bursts of Lightning called Corna Fulmine (lit. Lightning Horn).

Trivia[]

  • Lampow was the son of a squire.[2]
  • Lampow's hair color is the same as his Flame, Lightning.
  • When Lampow appeared to tell Lambo it is his turn, Tsuna mistook him for Future Lambo.
  • Future Lambo and Lampow share several similarities:
    • They both think highly of themselves.
    • They are both very spoiled, cowardly and lazy,but they always engage in combat when they are needed and are surprisingly useful.
    • They both keep their right eye closed.
    • They both are the youngest Guardians of their generation,and possibly also the weakest.
    • They both have the same voice actor, Tsuda Kenjirō.
    • They both have fondness for sweets, especially candies.
    • Lampow's relationship with G is similar with Lambo's relationship with Gokudera as shown in the Drama CD: Proof of Friendship, where G constantly smacks or punches Lampow whenever he is annoyed at him and treating him like a brat. Similar to Gokudera who is easily irritated by Lambo, which leads him to insult him, hit him and call him "Stupid Cow". Although it is also implied that they share the same slightly fraternal relationship between Hayato and Lambo.
    • Both have a habit of ending their sentences with some variation of "da mou ne", Lambo-"da mou ne", Lampo-"da mono ne".
    • Both cannot decline to their Bosses' requests (Tsuna and Giotto, respectively). Lampow claims he can't disobey Giotto's orders, while Lambo sees Tsuna as an older brother.
    • Both have a tattoo under their eyes; Lampow has a lightning bolt under his right eye, whereas Lambo has a "#" sign under his left eye.
    • They can both use Lampow's Shield.
    • Due to their young age, it is also possible that both are the weakest Guardians of their Generation.
    • The two came from different families, Lampow was the son of a nobleman and Lambo was part of the Bovino family before joining Vongola.
  • The main thing that makes a difference between Lampow and Lambo is how their respective bosses treat them on a fight; Giotto forces Lampow to fight, even in the frontlines; instead, Tsuna always refuses any idea to make the 5-year-old Lambo involved in a fight even in the name of Vongola due to Lambo's young age. It is unknown if this protection still occurs ten years in the future, however, 10-year-later Futa stated that that aspect of Tsuna didn't change.
  • The name Lampo means "flash/lightning".
  • Possibly due to his personality, no one ever expected anything from him, and Giotto was the first person to put faith in him, which could explain his loyalty to his boss.
