The X-Gloves is Tsuna's signature equipment. It is a pair of special combat gloves made by Leon during Tsuna's fight with Mukuro Rokudo. The gloves have three versions currently and allow for flight, increase in strength, and being able to output Flames for offensive attacks.
Wool mittens[edit | edit source]
The Wool Mittens are the initial base form of the gloves, emblazoned with the number 27. They change form when Tsuna channels his flames through them when entering Hyper Dying Will Mode or Dying Will Mode. All versions have had some variant of the letter X on the back of the hand, similar to Giotto's I-Gloves.
Transformed versions[edit | edit source]
Original X-Gloves[edit | edit source]
They are a pair of black, metal-clad gloves. The gloves are surrounded by Dying Will Flames, which can be ignited without the use of the Dying Will Bullet. Tsuna is also able to use the Dying Will Flame to propel himself through the air at high speeds with great maneuverability.
Version Vongola Ring[edit | edit source]
Though otherwise identical to the X-Gloves, the V.R. X-Gloves have large crests resembling the Sky Vongola Ring on the back of each hand.
Like the original X-Gloves, the Version V.R. are often used by Tsuna to augment his physical attacks and propel himself quickly through the air; however, they are now capable of producing two kinds of flames, dubbed by Lal Mirch the "hard" and "soft" flames. The soft flame is identical to that produced by the Original X-Gloves; it is dispersed, easier to control due to its linear increase in strength and ideal for holding a stance or hovering. The "hard flame," on the other hand, is a stronger, more explosive flame that is more difficult to control due to its exponential increase in strength; it is ideal for acceleration or raw power. The hard Flame's ability to be blasted from the Version V.R. forms the basis of many of Tsuna's later attacks, such as the X-Burner.
Version Vongola Gear[edit | edit source]
The current, and newest X-Gloves were created after the Vongola Rings were upgraded using the Vongola Primo's blood Penalty, and the Animal Rings. The Vongola Gear that was produced boosted the power of Tsuna's X-Gloves.
The new gloves now seem to be mostly red, unlike the previous gloves' black. The normal blue crystal Vongola Emblem in the middle now has an orange cross on top of it reading "Vongola Famiglia," and Flame type designs also covers the base of the gloves. Also, as part of the gear, a leg bangle has been added, based on the second ring, which is connected by a chain to a simple belt with an "X" as a buckle.
According to Tsuna, these new gloves have not only changed shape, but the way that the Flames are projected have been changed as well. Tsuna mentions that this new power is a power unlike any he's felt before. The flames produced from the gloves also seem to be more powerful, but one major change is that when activated, some kind of writing covers the flames, similar to the one around Enma's released ring.
When they were first used in battle, they showed the ability to project a circular shield around Tsuna, which also was surrounded by a ring of text surrounding the sphere. The shield was strong enough that it had protected Tsuna entirely against Enma's gravitational attack.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The X-Gloves and I-Gloves have their owner's respective Vongola Boss generation numeral on them. The X-Gloves has the Roman numeral X to represent Tsuna being the 10th Vongola Boss, and the I-Gloves has the Roman numeral I to represent Giotto being the 1st Vongola Boss.
- When Tsuna uses the X-Gloves V.V.R. to execute Zero Point Breakthrough: First Edition, an 'I' appears on the back of the X-Gloves to indicate that it is Vongola Primo's technique, and a X appears on the X-Gloves when Tsuna uses Zero Point Breakthrough: Revised to indicate that it is Tsuna's own, original technique, as he is Vongola Decimo.
