The main protagonist is a teenager, Tsuna Sawada, who one day suddenly finds himself stuck with a pint-sized "tutor" by the name of Reborn. His new teacher is revealed to be a mafia hitman, who tells Tsuna that he is the next heir to the Vongola mafia family, and thus has to be trained. Additionally, Tsuna is supposed to find more people to create his own "family".
The series follows Tsuna as he struggles against his fate, meets and befriends additional Family members, and discovers that the Vongola rings he and his guardians are meant to wear hold their own secrets.

It has become common practice in the KHR fandom to replace certain character names with numbers. For example, the members of the Vongola family have these abbrevations:
Pairings are written without signs or spaces between them, resulting in codes such as 5927 or D1827. They are therefore hard to identify for the uninitiated fan. The reason for these numbers lie in the Japanese language and the fact that numbers can have several forms of pronounciation. For a more detailed explanation see Shiroro's "little lesson on the numerology of Reborn".
