Box Weapons are small, hand-held cubes that hold tremendous power and Weapons within them, which are fueled by the Dying Will Flame of the user. For the Weapon within to be used, the right type of Ring, Flame, and Box must be matched up (i.e. Storm Ring, Storm Flame, and Storm Box Weapon) The higher the rank of the Ring and the purer the Flame, the more powerful the Weapon will be. It should also be noted that the Sky Flame can be used with any Box Weapon but it will not be able to unlock that Box Weapon's full potential.
The original idea for Box Weapons was based on the work of a biologist from the 4th Century, Geppetto Lorenzini. He designed 343 different Animal-based Weapons but lacked the technology to create them. Centuries later, three scientists: Verde of the Arcobaleno, Innocenti, and Arms-Dealer Koenig found Lorenzini's designs and created the Box Weapons by using the power of the Mafia Rings as a power source, which solved many of the problems. After they created all of the Box Weapons that Lorenzini designed, they continued to invent new types of Boxes and Weapons, for example, storage Boxes. Thinking of nothing but funding their research, they sold the Box Weapons to the Mafia for very low prices. Now, of the three scientists, only Koenig remains alive and continues to create newer box weapons (Verde was dead in the future but was later revived by the cost of Yuni's and Gamma's sacrifice and created the Vongola Box Rings). The effects of the Weapon match the Flame's characteristics, but may be utilized differently depending on the weapon itself.
Are basically just animals that sleep within the boxes. All of them have powers that are in some way associated with the flame type of their user. Some of the Box Animals have even been modified to further assist the Family. Those with modified Box Animals are the Vongola Boss and Guardians (current and past), the Stella Solare Boss and Guardians, and the Nube Lunare Boss and Guardians.
The flame type of the animal usually corresponds with that of its user. The animal is also usually associated to the user. Like Tsuna was associated with a Lion, and his Box Animal was a small lion.
