– Average in academics
– Father is a sushi restaurant owner and master swordsman who taught him his fighting style
– Something of an airhead, but intensely focused during fights
– Does not understand much of the Vongola (to him, it’s all a big elaborate game) but goes along with it anyway
– Friendly and optimistic
– Considers Tsuna the friend he will die for, not boss
– Tsuna’s left-hand man, considered the “shoulder blade”
– Considers Gokudera as his friend, more or less (because Tsuna is friends with Gokudera, he tries his best to be friends with him too)
– Reborn has said several times that he is a “natural assassin”, meaning Yamamoto has it in him to be a hitman.
As a weapon, Yamamoto first uses a bat that Reborn modified to turn into a katana as needed. Later he inherits a shinai (kendo practice sword) that turns into a katana.
