|Title||9th Vongola Lightning Guardian|
|Team||Vongola Nono & Guardians|
|Manga Debut||Chapter 288|
Ganauche III is a middle-aged man with black hair on the back half of his head and blonde hair in the front. He wears the suit and tie outfit commonly seen amongst Vongola members. Additionally, Ganauche appears to be younger than the other 9th generation Guardians.
He seems rather light-hearted and amiable, since he was the only one amongst Timoteo's Guardians to be amused when Tsuna called Timoteo "grandpa", and tousled Tsuna's hair afterwards.
He first appeared along with Timoteo and the other guardians when they arried at Japan, and are staying at hotel. At the hotel, Ganauche and Coyote discussed about the Giegue Famiglia, who had already found the whereabouts of the Family that intended to sabotage the Inheritance Ceremony. They say that the Giegue Family will wipe out the culprit, as a gift for the Tenth Boss. The Ninth's Guardians later appear at Tsuna's house and escourt him to the hotel, where the Ninth is staying. Timoteo greets Tsuna, and comes to the decision that Tsuna is too kind to be a mafia boss, but he is the only one that can change the corrupted Vongola to its original purpose, a vigilante group. When Tsuna says that he needs to think about it, Ganauche escorts him out of the hotel. The next day, Tsuna tells the Ninth that he has decided to not be a boss. Timoteo accepts his decision, but Bouche interrupts their meeting, and says the Tsuna has emergency phone call from Gokudera. Tsuna than rushes to the hospital, and Ganauche asks the Ninth's opinion. At the Inheritance Ceremony, he defended Tsuna and Timoteo when they realized the enemy have moved to take the "Sin," and was surprised, like everyone present, when he found out that the Simon Famiglia was the one who attacked them.
