Tsunayoshi Sawada (also known as "Tsuna") and Reborn are the main protagonists of the series Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn! and are playable as a character in J-Stars Victory VS and J-Stars Victory VS+.
Reborn does not fight together with Tsuna. He only appears in the introducing screen before the battle, during a taunt or at the winning screen, but he comments on Tsuna's actions and attacks.
They are one of the guardians of the Jump-emblem in the J-Adventure mode and playable for a short amount of time.
Tsuna is a close-ranged character with great mobility and fast attacks. Most of his damage comes from air-combos and surprise- and counter-attacks thanks to his great speed. He has only one bar of stamina but a very fast stamina recovery. If his health is below 50% his recovery speed doubles.
X-Burner (Circle): Fast but weak long-ranged attack. Good to deal some chip damage or interrupt your opponent while he charges his stamina. It can be used in the air.
X-Burst (forward Circle): Strong attack that punches the opponent into the air and finishes him with a short air-combo. It can be charged on the ground to travel a longer distance or used in the air for no start-up animation.
Zero Chiten Toppa: Kai (R1 + Circle): Counter-type move, that deals damage if you are attacked with a melee move. It can be hold to continue the stance at the cost of stamina.
Burning Axle (R3): Tsuna's ultimate move. Only usable during Victory Burst. It has a very short start-up animation and deals a lot of damage when both hits connect. Tsuna will not execute the second hit if the first one misses. This ultimate can be guarded but deals a great amount of stamina damage.
