Character Outline

Adult and Infant Viper in OP 9

Viper before and after he turned into an Arcobaleno

Viper is the holder of the Indigo Pacifier. He is a member of the elite Vongola assassination team, the Varia, under the name Mammonマーモン. Known as the Arcobaleno's best spellcaster,[1] Viper has the ability to cast illusions, as well as being able to locate any person by sneezing into a piece of paper (he carries a roll of paper with him); the spit or mucus that sticks to the paper shows a map leading to the desired person.[2] Other than for the exception of the Arcobaleno trials, Viper only works for money and is therefore represented as the sin of greed in Varia. He also has a black frog named Fantasma that lies on top of his head. By turning into a yellow ouroboros (a snake devouring it's own tail that is also an alchemist's symbol) into a "halo" above him, Fantasma can give Mammon the ability to fly in combat.[3] He claims to have been trying to break the Arcobaleno curse, and had sealed his pacifier so that other Arcobaleno cannot sense him with the Mammon Chain, which also seals the power of Rings and Boxes and such.[1] The Chain is replaced by the Vongola by the cap that conceals the Rings' powers the same way as the Chains.

Plot Overview

Varia Arc

During the Ring Conflict, he defeats Chrome Dokuro with no problems,[1] however, he is defeated by Mukuro once the latter takes possession of Chrome's body, but he managed to survive because he reserved enough energy for him to escape at the beginning as a precaution.[4]

Arcobaleno Trials Arc

Mammon's Seal

Tsuna getting his 3rd Seal from Viper

Viper is the third administrator of the Arcobaleno Trials. His Trial involves battling Tsuna, Ryohei, and Yamamoto. In the Trial, he uses his special Ability: Viper Mirage. Everyone was surprised when they heard Verde told Viper to test out a prototype Box Weapon. Reborn said that he had a bad feeling about this. During Verde's trial, Viper attempts to stop a Pawn missile from making it to Namimori, although his efforts were thwarted by a substance which was later revealed to be similar to the Non Tri-Ni-Sette, which Verde uses to capture the rest of the Arcobaleno, sans Aria. Unlike the actual Non Tri-Ni-Sette, the substance only paralyzes them, as opposed to outright killing them. It later turns out that the captured Arcobaleno were revealed to have been Illusions done by Viper as soon as he saw the substance released again when all the Arcobaleno were present.

Viper and the other Arcobaleno are called by Reborn to train Tsuna and the others. Viper is paired up with Chrome as his student.

Abilities

Before he was turned into an Arcobaleno, he was a first-class psychic who added Illusions to his repertoire. It was seen he could also fly before he was turned into an Arcobaleno as seen in Episode 142. His psychic Abilities were telepathy and he could also dowse things through photographs, so that he could find things and people. As an Arcobaleno he still has all his Power, but his Illusions have been strengthened. Possibly because the Arcobaleno´s Mist Pacifer is a Ring that emits Mist Flames, creating real Illusions, and the Arcobaleno's ability to emit Dying Will Flame from their bodies. The most used Illusions by Viper are the Illusions of clones of himself and the Illusion of tentacles coming from underneath his hood. His pet Fantasma, is what gives him the Ability to fly. In one occasion, Episode 40, he even showed he could teleport.

Trivia

  • Mammon is a term used to describe material wealth or greed, most often personified as a deity.
  • In the Reborn! Fandom, his letter is V.
  • He dislikes being called by his given name, Viper. But he doesn't seem to be mind if Reborn calls him by his given name.
  • Mammon loves money and thus represents Greed from the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • Mammon only works if he gets paid. However, he will work if the situation is dire or to do his duties as an Arcobaleno.
  • He was hired by Skull to help in the Trial, but Mammon left when Skull ran out of money to pay him with. However, he doesn't run off when he was called yet again by Reborn, even calling him and the others "shameless" because Reborn made him work without getting paid twice.
  • He was told by Verde to test out a prototype Box Weapon during the Arcobaleno Trials, in which he comments that the Box Weapon was indeed helpful in fighting many battles.
  • There are some fans who believe Mammon/Viper may be female, due to the lack of gender - specific pronouns used to describe him. Because of this, it was assumed that Mammon was a male and 'He,' 'His' and 'Him' were used when speaking about him in translations. Translations that use Male pronouns instead of the correct gender neutral termonology, are the Fan-Subtitled work. However, the male pronouns continued to be used in the official works of VIZ translation, meaning that Mammon/Viper is in fact male.
  • Mammon has a character song which is "Maboroshi no Arcobaleno".
  • It is believed that Mammon will never be replaced as Varia's Mist Illusionist in the Future because he will never die in the Past as a result of the non existence of the Millefiore Family due to the sealing of the power of Mare Rings.
  • During the Sky Match when Xanxus has been frozen by the Zero Point Breakthrough, he seemed to have the Ability to light all of the Vongola Rings.
  • He seems to be in good terms with Belphegor since they were almost always seen together.
