|Manga Debut||Yamamoto Arrives!|
Yamamoto is one of the main characters in Katekyo Hitman Reborn!'s spin-off manga, Vongola GP Kuru!
Yamamoto is the third racer of Team Vongola who was recruited after Tsuna's first victory.
Yamamoto is always shown to wear a black long yukata and a black shirt beneath it.
Like his original counterpart, Yamamoto is a friendly, easy-going, cheerful, and happy-go-lucky person. He'll become angry if anyone dares to hurt his friends and will make sure to payback for what they have done to his friends. Reflecting with his original who has hidden talent to become a hitman, Yamamoto has natural hidden talent to become a racer, which he displays quickly during his first time riding a cart in his match with Tsuna and even quickly reached the second best racer in the town. Unlike his original though, Yamamoto has been devoted to his swordsmanship from the very beginning and still does so, which becomes handy during the race.
After reading the news about Team Vongola's first victory in the newspaper, Yamamoto visited the Team Vongola's HQ and challenge Tsuna for a cart race even though he had never riding a cart before. Seeing Yamamoto's hidden talent, Reborn makes Tsuna agree for a match. As the race started, Yamamoto easily adjusts riding his cart and reach the first place. When they entered the tunnel to the finish line, Yamamoto suddenly draws his sword, claiming that he made a deal with his father that if able to defeat Tsuna, he will be allowed to continue his sword training, and if he doesn't, he'll quit. Tsuna enters Hyper Dying Will Mode, using X Tornado to reach the finish line before Yamamoto, winning the race. Realizing that Yamamoto actually still wants to continue his sword training, Tsuna invited him to join Team Vongola where he can use his swordsmanship as part of the race, not breaking his promise with his father. Later, during another race, Yamamoto quickly gains reputation, earning second place just behind Enma.
