'''Superbia Squalo''',<ref name=data77p164/> commonly referred to as '''Squalo''', is the second-in-command of the [[Varia]], the independent assassination squad of the [[Vongola Famiglia]]. He is the second holder of the title [[Sword Emperor]] after defeating the [[Tyr|first]].
[[File:Young Squalo.PNG|thumb|left|Squalo when he was younger]]
 
'''Superbia Squalo''' is an assassin and the Second-in-Command of [[Varia]], the Vongola Family's Independent Assassination Squad. He is most notable for his long silver hair, and is always seen wearing his Varia uniform in both the anime and the manga. He is a very loud character, and has a tendency to shout "VOOOI!!!" (the Italian version of the plural "You") before saying something or while in battle. Squalo, as revealed in the [[Rain Ring Battle]] against Takeshi Yamamoto, cut off his left hand and replaced it with a mechanized Sword. His reason for doing that was so he could better understand how the previous [[Sword Emperor]], [[Tyr]], the previous Boss of the Varia, felt and battled, since he did not have a left hand either. Squalo also seems to be quite perceptive, seeing right through [[Genkishi]]'s Mist [[Illusions]] when Genkishi tried to fake a loss.{{-}}
 
   
==Plot Overview==
+
== Character Outline ==
=== Varia Arc===
+
=== Appearance ===
Squalo first arrives in Namimori after battling [[Basil]] all the way to where [[Tsuna]] and his Family are dining downtown. He, at that time, does not recognize Tsuna as the 10th Vongola Boss. [[Yamamoto]] and [[Gokudera]] then step in to aid Tsuna in fighting him, but they are easily defeated by Squalo. Squalo takes Yamamoto on first and deduces that he doesn't know a style because his swings are light. He defeats him by shooting several small amounts of Gunpowder from his Sword into the ground, blowing him up. Next, after Gokudera attempts to bombard Squalo, he quickly slashes the fuses off Gokudera's Dynamite, extinguishing them and leaving Gokudera in surprised shock. He then delivers a harshly punishing kick to Gokudera, rendering him unconscious and unable to battle.
+
[[File:Young Squalo.PNG|thumb|left|200px|Younger Squalo]]
Dying Will [[Tsuna]] steps up to square off with Squalo, but he easily catches his opponent's punches while simultaneously realizing who Tsuna truly is. Squalo dexterously holds and beats Tsuna before he can land the finishing blow. Soon thereafter, Dino, the current Boss of the Cavallone Famiglia, steps in to confront Squalo, questioning him on his behaviour in fighting against children. Squalo disregards Dino and steals the Fake Half Vongola Rings fleetingly, reluctant to cause even more trouble by fighting an allied Family.
+
Squalo's most notable feature is his long, straight silver/white hair, which he keeps long to show his dedication to his boss, Xanxus, and he refuses to cut it until [[Xanxus]] replaces [[Tsunayoshi Sawada]] as the 10th Vongola boss. When he was younger, before Xanxus' imprisonment, his hair was spiky at the back and kept short. In the future, his hair tends to cover his right eye, with one strand hanging down the center of his face. His eyes and eyebrows are light grey in colour.  
Squalo delivers the Rings to [[Xanxus]], the Boss of the Varia, as was his task, but Xanxus recognizes them as Fakes sooner than Reborn and the others expected. He appears in most of the Ring Battles as a spectator, as well as a commenter on the Varia's side. Later, Squalo fights Yamamoto in the [[Rain Ring Battle]]. Squalo is certain he's going to win when he discovers that Yamamoto fights with a style he has already learned and beaten. But he ends up losing the battle because he does not know the secret of the [[Shigure Souen]] style: it branches off at who their past mentor was to make sure that the style remains strong and undefeatable. In the process, the Techniques may change. Squalo is defeated by Yamamoto's Technique that he added to the Sword Style; ''Mirroring Rain''. Squalo, now unconscious, falls into the water within the Rain stage, where a shark has been released. The watching Vongola and Varia fear the worst and assume that Squalo is dead.
+
Later, in the Sky Battle, Squalo reappears, albeit wheelchair-bound and badly injured with Dino and the Chiavarone, much to Tsuna's and his guardians' surprise. Dino reveals that the Chiavarone had set up men within the Rain stage to rescue the loser who would fall into the water at the battle's end; Dino states that he had expected Yamamoto to lose the battle and had put preparations in place to save him, but wound up saving Squalo instead. Squalo, in his hospital room, refused to reveal any information about Xanxus and his plans to Dino but, at the Sky Battle, was accepted as a spectator along with Dino and several Chiavarone members.
+
Squalo is often seen wearing his Varia uniform, which he customizes like the other members. He tends to style his uniform like a trench-coat. He has also occasionally been shown wearing black earmuffs in cold weather. During the battles he fought to secure his title of Second Sword Emperor, he wore a long-sleeved, dark blue top with a white, furry collar and long, matching pants. Before the [[Cradle Affair]], he wore a white shirt with a black tie and green checkered pants. At the party where he first met Xanxus, he also wore a black blazer over the shirt.  As revealed in the [[Rain Ring Battle]] against Takeshi Yamamoto, he cut off his left hand and replaced it with a mechanized sword, which was done so he could better relate to the [[Sword Emperor]], [[Tyr]], who also happened to be the previous Boss of the Varia and fought without his left hand. 
===Future Arc===
+
[[File:Future_Squalo.PNG|thumb|250px|Future Squalo]]Squalo is seen again during the Future Arc when he takes command of the Varia's core group (minus Xanxus, Gola Mosca, and Mammon) with a new Member named [[Fran]] participating in their Raid in Italy. The group then splits up into [[Belphegor]] and [[Fran]], [[Levi]] and [[Lussuria]], and Squalo alone. He encounters some of the lower ranking Varia Members assigned to feed Xanxus, but then senses enemies approaching. He releases his [[Heavy Rain Shark|Squalo Grande Pioggia]] (Heavy Rain Shark) to defeat them.
+
In the Official Reborn Secret Bullet Novel (X-Fiamma), it was also revealed that Squalo's left stump aches whenever Xanxus is in mortal danger. This occurs because of the connection between the promise he made and his resolve to follow Xanxus.
Squalo later comes to the forefront when he learns that [[Yamamoto]] lost to [[Genkishi]]. He arrives in the Vongola Hideout with a gift of tuna to Dino, and viciously attacks Yamamoto by punching him in the gut who, without his guard up, is easily knocked out. Squalo carries him off to train him.{{-}}
+
===Choice Arc===
+
=== Personality ===
Squalo appears in Chapter 243. He has been hiding out in the Base [[Shoichi]] constructed and as such was the second known stowaway. It seems that [[Yamamoto]] harbours no ill will towards him.
+
Squalo has a loud personality and tends to shout "Voi!" (the Italian version of the plural "you") to vent his frustration. Like Xanxus, he tends to be violent and loses his temper easily. According to his childhood friend and former schoolmate Dino, even as a teenager Squalo was intimidating and like a shark that has smelled blood. Nonetheless, he still manages to be one of the most level-headed Varia members and as the second-in-command, he often keeps the others in line. He enjoys fighting, especially against opponents he deems worthy and is highly dedicated to swordsmanship. Squalo seems to be quite perceptive, seeing right through [[Genkishi]]'s Mist [[Illusions]] when Genkishi tried to fake a loss and even seeing through Chrome Dokuro's skilled illusion of Yamamoto, which Mammon mentions that only real experts could see through. He's intelligent and analytical, being able to learn techniques easily, and is the Varia's strategist in the future. Despite willingly handing over the Varia boss position to Xanxus, Squalo's status as a former boss candidate and current second-in-command shows that he is a capable leader in his own right.
During [[Tsuna]]'s fight with [[Torikabuto]], he notices that Tsuna's Sky Lion is very similar to Xanxus's Sky Lion (they are from the same weapon series).
+
In Chapters 246 and 247, Squalo is shown trying to persuade Yamamoto to devote himself completely to the sword, because he cannot reach his full potential as a swordsman if it's not his only passion. He does not like Yamamoto's childish behavior in the Future Arc.
+
He demonstrates a strong sense of honour and loyalty, refusing to accept help from Yamamoto during the Rain Ring Battle because he did not want his pride as a swordsman to be "tainted", and keeping his promise to follow Xanxus even after finding out the truth about Xanxus's heritage during their coup to overthrow the Ninth. Squalo is also shown to be cynical and strong-willed; when he and Dino were teenagers, he criticised Dino's lack of ambition and declared that he would "cut through everything" with his sword until everyone submitted to him. As the representative of the sin of Pride, he takes a great deal of pride in his position as the Sword Emperor and a member of the elite Varia; and is very confident in his abilities as a swordsman, albeit deservedly so.
He later defends Yuni from an attack by [[Kikyo]] and [[Zakuro]] with Hibari, staying behind to fight alongside [[Dino]] so Tsuna can escape with Yuni.
+
After returning to Vongola HQ, he tries contacting Lussuria for backup, though nobody can be sent. The transmission gets cut off by Zakuro's attack. Squalo is able to use his Rain Flames to fend off Zakuro's Storm Flames, and tries to buy time while the others escape. He loses his prosthetic sword hand and is defeated by Zakuro without any difficulty. He is later revealed to have survived. Dino believes Squalo was defeated only because Byakuran has fought them in a parallel world and therefore knows all their techniques, briefing the Real Six Funeral Wreaths on their Abilities, their strengths, their Techniques, and how to counter them.He loses his hand, which he threw away for the emperor's sword and understanding of his technique. It is shown when Ghost is absorbing their flames.
+
== Weapons and Abilities ==
Later after the final battle with Byakuran, he was talking with Yamamoto before everyone's return to the past by asking was he going to play baseball again and calling him the naive brat. He then left and Yamamoto thanks him.

Superbia Squalo,[1] commonly referred to as Squalo, is the second-in-command of the Varia, the independent assassination squad of the Vongola Famiglia. He is the second holder of the title Sword Emperor after defeating the first.

Younger Squalo

Squalo's most notable feature is his long, straight silver/white hair, which he keeps long to show his dedication to his boss, Xanxus, and he refuses to cut it until Xanxus replaces Tsunayoshi Sawada as the 10th Vongola boss. When he was younger, before Xanxus' imprisonment, his hair was spiky at the back and kept short. In the future, his hair tends to cover his right eye, with one strand hanging down the center of his face. His eyes and eyebrows are light grey in colour.  

Squalo is often seen wearing his Varia uniform, which he customizes like the other members. He tends to style his uniform like a trench-coat. He has also occasionally been shown wearing black earmuffs in cold weather. During the battles he fought to secure his title of Second Sword Emperor, he wore a long-sleeved, dark blue top with a white, furry collar and long, matching pants. Before the Cradle Affair, he wore a white shirt with a black tie and green checkered pants. At the party where he first met Xanxus, he also wore a black blazer over the shirt.  As revealed in the Rain Ring Battle against Takeshi Yamamoto, he cut off his left hand and replaced it with a mechanized sword, which was done so he could better relate to the Sword Emperor, Tyr, who also happened to be the previous Boss of the Varia and fought without his left hand. 

In the Official Reborn Secret Bullet Novel (X-Fiamma), it was also revealed that Squalo's left stump aches whenever Xanxus is in mortal danger. This occurs because of the connection between the promise he made and his resolve to follow Xanxus.

Personality Edit

Squalo has a loud personality and tends to shout "Voi!" (the Italian version of the plural "you") to vent his frustration. Like Xanxus, he tends to be violent and loses his temper easily. According to his childhood friend and former schoolmate Dino, even as a teenager Squalo was intimidating and like a shark that has smelled blood.
