* ShaggyDogStory: BIG TIME. [[spoiler:His actions to sacrifice himself with Dio end up turning for the worst, as Dio manages to become more DangerouslyGenreSavvy and powerful with attaching his head to his now dead body, making his sacrifice harshly pointless in the long run]].

* ShaggyDogStory: BIG TIME. [[spoiler:His actions to sacrifice himself with Dio end up turning for the worst, as Dio manages to become more DangerouslyGenreSavvy cunning and powerful with attaching his head to his now dead body, making his sacrifice harshly pointless in the long run]].



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler:As a vampire, he claims that Dio failed because he wasted time testing out his powers, instead of simply killing Jonathan. So he decides to kill Joseph as soon as he can, with his ''first attack'' being the EyeBeams that actually managed to kill Jonathan]].



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: And well-beloved by the fandom for it, from utilizing a technique to freeze enemy Ripple users' blood flow to checking on the heartbeat of Jotaro to see if he's still alive, then deciding to just decapitate him from a safe distance anyway.
** His plan to kill Jonathan in Part 1 while he's out trying to cure George. Dio figured out how the Stone Mask worked and saw it drove tentacles into a person's head and decided to kill him with it and since nobody else knew about the mask's functions everyone would be none the wiser. He turned out be WrongGenreSavvy, but once he figured out its real purpose he came up with a plan B to kill Jonathan use his blood to trigger the mask by taking advantage of his trusting nature. The only reason it didn't work was because George took the hit for him, but Dio still became a vampire and almost killed him anyways.
** During his fight with Jotaro, he realizes that Jotaro is not only strong but cunning, using tricks to make it appear that he can counter The World's [[spoiler:time-stopping]] power, [[KansasCityShuffle then sneak-attacking when Dio "sees through him" and closes in for the kill]]. So when Dio appears to have successfully killed Jotaro with throwing knives, he remains cautious and attempts to ascertain from a distance whether or not Jotaro is ''actually'' dead, going so far as to have an entralled police officer shoot at Jotaro to provoke a reaction. Convinced thus that Jotaro has been killed, Dio makes to decapitate the body ''just to be sure'', [[PlayingPossum which is when Jotaro finally strikes]].



* FromNobodyToNightmare: On a literally cosmic scale. Dio was originally the son of a drunken bum with no super special secret origins or evil ChosenOne status, but through cunning and charisma, he became a very DangerouslyGenreSavvy vampire. Even then, he would have just been a {{Mook}} compared to the Pillar Men. Then he still set into motion a plan [[spoiler:that led to the destruction and recreation of the freaking universe!]]

* MakeSureHesDead: In an excellent example of being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, Dio isn't quite satisfied with sticking Jotaro through with knives and dropping him from over a dozen stories high, so he grabs a policeman's gun and shoots him. Afterward, he puts his ear to the ground to listen for Jotaro's heartbeat from a safe distance. Despite hearing nothing, he then decides to behead him with a street sign just to be sure. [[spoiler:He fails, as Jotaro used his Stand both to catch the bullet just after it pierced his skin and to temporarily stop his heartbeat.]]

* GenreBlind: To contrast Dio being DangerouslyGenreSavvy. If he had half a brain, Dio would have taken Jonathan's [[spoiler:body]] without any trouble at all.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: [[spoiler:He is a jerk himself, Giorno's mom was a bitch, and among his three sons in SO, Rykiel is the only one who isn't a jerk. Along with all that, due to having Joestar blood in him, Dio is this towards [[DidntThinkThisThrough his new family.]]]]
