[[folder:Buccellati's group]]

! Giorno Giovanna (Stand: Gold Experience[[spoiler:/Gold Experience Requiem]])
->Voiced by: Creator/DaisukeNamikawa (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/RomiPark (''Vento Aureo'' video game)
->[[spoiler:Gold Experience Requiem]]: Creator/MisaWatanabe (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/RomiPark (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

Son of Dio Brando and conceived after Dio had transferred his head to Jonathan Joestar's body, Giorno Giovanna is a part of both the Joestar and Brando bloodlines. His goal was to join up with the mob and set things right from within. As soon as he joins, he gets roped into traveling with Buccellati's gang of Stand users, protecting their boss' daughter. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the real reason for the boss wanting to meet his daughter was to kill her. They rescue her and make it their goal to kill the boss instead.]]

Note that for the ThemeNaming of [=JoJo=], his name is romanized as Joruno Jobana, though during Part 5 Araki would romanize it as [=GioGio=]. It's still pronounced the same. Also apropos to the Italian setting, the fans refer to this part by its Italian title ''Le Bizzarre Avventure di [=GioGio=]''.
* AbusiveParents: His mother was neglectful and his stepfather beat him, which made him an ExtremeDoormat as a child. Let's not even go into detail about his real old man Dio.
* AlliterativeName
* AnimalMotif: Ladybugs.
* AnimeHair: He has what can only be described as hair tubes or cornets.
* AttackReflector: Any damage taken by the animals Gold Experience creates is transferred to the attacker leaving the animal unharmed.
* [[spoiler:AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: The last shot of Vento Aureo is literally this for him, as he becomes TheDon of the Passione Mafia in a tribute to the final scene of TheGodfather.]]
* {{Badass}}: Definitely so, he's without a doubt one of the most {{Badass}} characters in the series, and a good choice for the most {{Badass}} Joestar as well.
** BadassFamily: Considering he's the son of a BigBad using the body of one of the most {{Badass}} Joestar's.
* TheBeastmaster: He can turn inanimate objects into animals and then exercise control over them.
* BigScrewedUpFamily
* BirthmarkOfDestiny: As with all Joestar family members, he has a star on his back.
* {{Bishonen}}
** BishieSparkle: [[http://www.mangatraders.com/view/file/104229/page/52 Yes]] [[http://www.tenmangas.com/chapter/JojosBizarreAdventure445/159353-9.html indeed.]]
* ButNotTooForeign: Like Jotaro, he's part British and part Japanese. He grew up in Italy with his Japanese mother and Italian stepfather, changing his name from Haruno Shiobana to Giorno Giovanna.
* BullyHunter: More subtle than most, but Giorno's dream to become the Don of Italy is so that the Mafia will once again ''protect'' the weak and innocent as they once did, rather than prey on and victimize them.
** Point in fact, witness his terrifying TranquilFury as he forces a ''Capo'' to swallow a gun for casually murdering a helpless old janitor who worked at his school.
* CastingGag: Although this is most likely unintentional, but he's voiced by Creator/DaisukeNamikawa, who voiced Film/SinCity Roark Junior, known as That Yellow Bastard in the Japanese dub of the film. Which in a way That Yellow Bastard is a fitting title for Giorno (Gold Experience is a shade of yellow and Giorno is Dio's bastard son).
* ChickMagnet: Early on in Vento Aureo, he's shown in a café with a bunch of girls positively swarming over him.
* CreatingLife: His powers revolve around this concept, either transforming inorganic matter into animals or plants or heightening senses of others to amplify pain. [[ItMakesSenseInContext He could even transform a pistol into a banana!]] [[spoiler:Then his Stand went Requiem...]] Ties in with TheBeastmaster.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Josuke and Giorno both became the people they are today after a chance meeting with two unnamed men, but the way they turned out could not be any more different. Josuke is an easygoing but incredibly passionate person whose only goal is to spend his days with his friends and family in the hometown he loves so much. Giorno is an extremely cool-headed person with a ruthless and driven personality whose goal is to impose his own RobinHood type of ideology upon the biggest mob in Italy. This even extends to their role in the story, with Josuke often standing front and center alongside his allies, and Giorno preferring to provide assistance and advice unless specifically provoked. Giorno actually takes after his father Dio more than he takes after the Joestar lineage.
* CompositeCharacter: He has aspects of both Jonathan and Dio in his personality, tempered by his own cool-headedness. His stand also seems to combine The Ripple (infusing living things with life-energy), The World (said living things are mentally stuck in time), vampirism (manipulating and combining organic matter), and the Pillar Men (transforming objects and creatures).
* CripplingOverspecialization: Golden Experience Requiem is a powerful stand...against Stands like Magician Red and Silver Chariot. Stands like Bites the Dust and Cheap Trick are able to bypass this as they don't "attack". In [=BTD=]'s case, time can rewind itself before [[AlreadyUndoneForYou Giorno could trigger [=GER=]]]. Cheap Trick on the other hand can only cling on Gionro's back and wait for someone to see his back in order to do it's work. In addition to wanting Bruno to be the main hero, Sticky Fingers can kill Giorno without attacking by detaching limbs.
* CurbStompBattle: Gives one to [[spoiler: Diavolo]] after [[spoiler:Golden Experience evolves]].
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Just like his father, this is all over the place for Giorno, with the most noticeable case of this probably being the final part of his battle against Cioccolata. The Brando family must have a knack for making ''darn sure'' that their opponents are truly and utterly dead...
* {{Dhampyr}}: Though only in name; he has no powers extraneous to his Stand and is in fact less physically active than the majority of protagonists in the series.
* DubNameChange: Gold Experience becomes Golden Wind in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''. And guess what Vento Aureo translates into?
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: It's not made explicitly clear how he feels about his biological father, Dio, but he DOES actually keep a photo of him in his wallet. This at least implies ''some'' degree of value on Giorno's part.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: When he got his Stand, his hair turned from black to blonde, and he switched from a generic boyish haircut to his current AnimeHair.
* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: Thoroughly pulverizes [[spoiler:Cioccolata]] for [[NoKillLikeOverkill seven straight pages]] in the manga [[PayEvilUntoEvil as retribution]] for making so many others suffer in the past.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* GoodIsNotSoft: He can be compassionate, understanding, and noble, but make no mistake: if Giorno knows you thrive on the suffering of others, he will consider you an obstacle to be eliminated in his goal of cleaning up the Mafia.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Like Josuke, his Stand can be used to heal injuries. Unfortunately, since that's not what it was made for, the process hurts, leading to an... [[HoYay interesting moment]] between himself and Mista later on in the series.
* GreenThumb: Can turn inanimate objects into plants.
* HeroicBastard: Probably; it seems unlikely that Dio married Giorno's mom.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Invoked early on during Giorno's fight with Buccellati, who mocks the usefulness of Gold Experience "imbuing life" in a fight. Bruno gets to learn first hand that "overfilled" with "life" includes charming side effects like losing coordination of your body and feeling the agonizing moment of your face being pounded in, stretched out over several minutes.
* TheHero/TheLancer: The Hero of Passione's group and the Lancer to Buccellati's Leader.
* HitStop: Gold Experience can do this.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Giorno is the [[IncrediblyLamePun gold standard]] which all other [=JoJos=] aspire to.
* InSeriesNickName: [=GioGio=].
* InTheBlood: Being the son of their ArchEnemy but carrying the DNA of the Joestar bloodline, Joseph and Jotaro send Koichi to find out which side of his lineage he takes after. Fortunately for everyone involved, Giorno is a NobleDemon on his worst day.
** The [[{{Kiai}} "MUDAMUDAMUDA"]] and "WRRRRRRYYYYYYYY!" are sure not from the Joestar lineage, though. Apparently the latter isn't just limited to vampires (although Giorno is a [[{{Dhampyr}} half-vampire]]).
* {{Irony}}: Given the massive amount of HoYay between Jonathan and Dio in part 1, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything the fact that he takes after both and technically has two dad's]], is extremely ironic.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: While Koichi was sent to scout him out, Giorno is never informed about the history of the Joestar bloodline and Dio Brando. Koichi even notes that Jotaro seemed to be making it a point to ''avoid'' meeting him. Considering the last time Jotaro ran into a Brando, it makes sense.
* MagneticHero: It's even lampshaded by his companions.
* TheMole: Joined the mafia to kill the boss and take his place.
* MythologyGag: His Stand's main power is similar to Kars' ultimate ability of creating/altering life on a cellular level (Kars is also the originator of vampirism, making him Giorno's figurative granddaddy). The secondary ability of slowing down people's mental processes (i.e. speeding up time for them so that everything is too fast to keep up with) causes them to freeze in place like his father's stand ability.
* NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters: After saving the life of one of these when he was younger, it became his life's mission to become one himself.
* NoSell: [[spoiler: One half of Gold Experience Requiem's powers, allowing Giorno to NoSell anything and everything.]]
* PutOnABus: He doesn't show up again after Part 5, despite other [=JoJos=] typically appearing again after their own parts. Likely done on purpose since [[spoiler:Gold Experience Requiem would've been pretty damn useful against [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart6 Enrico Pucci's Made In Heaven]]. In fact, he [[WildMassGuess could still be alive in the alternate universe!]]]]
** DidntThinkThisThrough: [[JoJosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle Although it's]] [[OhCrap useless against]] [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart4 Bites The Dust]]
* RealMenWearPink: He machine-gun punches villains to death, is the son of the ultimate villain of the entire series, is a member of the Mafia who killed two other members of the Mafia to get his spot (they had it coming though), [[spoiler:becomes the head of said mafia through punching the right people enough times]], [[MadeOfIron doesn't flinch]] when shoving his eye back into his skull...and he looks absolutely ''fabulous'' while doing it.
* [[spoiler:ResetButton: Gold Experience Requiem is a version of this, rendering any action taken by anyone null and void.]]
* StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler:His Gold Experience Requiem exists outside the concept of time, space, and reality, and can reset absolutely '''any''' attack ''and'' the attacker's will to zero. Oh, and if it kills you, you keep on dying for all eternity, each time in an exotically different way!]]
* SwissArmySuperpower: Giorno's Stand; despite it seemingly only having the ability to create life and organic matter, he puts it to incredible use. From using it to age things to their death, to using it to accelerate one's mind to the point that it cannot catch up with one's own body (due to it also amplifying one's senses), to tracking a being by using any piece of it that broke off and could thus be turned into an animal as it wasn't alive. In one case, he [[spoiler:got infected with a guaranteed fatal flesh-eating virus that would destroy him in half a minute. He [[BeyondTheImpossible cured it regardless]] by morphing an inanimate object that was slaked with said virus into a snake that was immune to said virus, and had it inject its own blood into his body to be used as a vaccine]]. Ladies and gentlemen, we have found a cure for AIDS!
* SlipknotPonytail: His braid comes undone in the final battle when [[spoiler:Gold Experience Requiem awakens.]]
* TheDon: Has wanted to become a "[[NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters Gang-Star]]" since he was a kid out of reverence for the mafioso whose life he saved. [[spoiler:And becomes one at the end of the story by virtue of nearly every other possible candidate ending up dead and Passione trying to ensure Diavolo's death doesn't come out.]]
* TimeMaster: His stand's abilities seem to have a temporal component -- he can accelerate the growth of life, desync someone's sense of time, and speed up healing. [[spoiler: The biggest clue to this aspect of his stand is the Requiem version's ability to be completely fixed in the timeline within a single timeframe, nullifying and reversing any actions taken against him.]]
** ItRunsInTheFamily: [[BigGood Giorno]] has simliar powers (Speed up time by imbedding life with GE, maintain current status withing a single timeframe for GER) as his [[BigBad dad]] (Slow down and/or [[TimeStandsStill stop time]]) and the Pillar Men (Create/Destroy/Alter life on a cellular level)
* TranquilFury: He never gets consumed by anger, but he will ''not'' forgive cruelty, whether monstrous or indifferent. For the former, see his determination to put a stop to Diavolo's crimes. For the latter, see his determination to avenge the innocent janitor killed by Black Sabbath during his "test."
* [[spoiler:WindsOfDestinyChange: Gold Experience Requiem was able to violate Epitaph's prediction of Giorno's death.]]
* YourMindMakesItReal: Golden Experience [[spoiler:Requiem]]'s secondary ability. Using this allows Giorno to lock a target into a constant state of pacifistic feeling, thus all feeling of violence within a target's mind is removed.

! Bruno Buccellati (Stand: Sticky Fingers)
-> Voiced by: Creator/NoriakiSugiyama (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/TakahiroSakurai (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

The leader of one of Passione's assassination squads. He helps spur Giorno into joining Passione and acts somewhat as his advisor. Bruno is driven by his loyalty to the townspeople, as well as the desire to clean up crime in his division.
* AlliterativeName
* AppendageAssimilation: Sort of. Buccellati can use his zippers to attach other people's body parts to himself. This aspect can also be used for healing purposes by reattaching a severed limb, as in the case of [[spoiler:Abbacchio's hand.]]
* {{Badass}}
* BigGood: Of ''Vento Aureo''.
* {{Bishonen}}
* CastingGag: [[Creator/NoriakiSugiyama His voice actor in ASB]] is infamous for voicing [[FateStayNight another character]] who [[spoiler:[[MemeticMutation doesn't die when killed]]]].
* CursedWithAwesome: [[spoiler:The bad news is you're [[OurZombiesAreDifferent dead]]. The good news is you're completely immune to one of the scariest and [[BodyHorror nastiest]] Stands in the series.]]
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong: He really is dead after his first confrontation with King Crimson. It's only Gold Experience and his own resolve that keep him going up to the end.]]
* DetachmentCombat: Another zipper-related ability.
* TheDeterminator: [[spoiler:How determined? At one point he sectioned his heart apart into several pieces to avoid detection, almost dying in the process. Later on? He died, but through sheer willpower alone, after Gold Experience healed his body, his spirit reanimated his dead body]].
* DubNameChange: Rather than try to get the rights from the Rolling Stones, ''All-Star Battle'' turns Sticky Fingers into Zipper Man in English.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Especially near the beginning.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: His Stand's power is creating zippers. In classic Araki fashion, however, the uses he finds for this power can tend to make you forget Giorno's supposed to be TheHero.
** [[SupportingProtagonist Which may be the idea.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He turns out to be a lot nicer than his first impression suggests.
* {{Kiai}}: [=AriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAri!=] Arrivederci!
* TheMole
* [[spoiler:OurZombiesAreDifferent: Revenant type]].
* [[spoiler:SlidingScaleOfUndeadRegeneration: Type 2: No rotting, but no healing either.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS?: Is it Bruno or Blono? Buccellati or Bucciarati? For his surname, it's probably the former, since it's also the name of [[EdibleThemeNaming an Italian pastry]]. However, [[http://www.araki-jojo.com/90/ not even]] [[http://www.araki-jojo.com/238/ Araki]] can decide which to choose. If ''All-Star Battle'' has anything to say on it, it's "Bruno Buccellati" in English-speaking countries.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: A lot of Vento Aureo focuses around him rather than Giorno. He gets the most fights, was the person who took Trish to meet the boss, first encountered his Stand, has the most prevalent character arc, and the entire epilogue is centered around him.
* SupportingLeader
* SupportingProtagonist
* ToBeLawfulOrGood: Bruno eventually finds out that drugs are being sold to minors in his part of town but is troubled about how to take care of the drug dealers, since they support Passione. He ends up having to ignore the problem until Giorno comes along.
** [[spoiler:Upon discovering Diavolo's true intentions for Trish, he and Giorno decide that protecting Trish is the right thing to do, so they defect from the gang and hunt down their boss.]]
* {{Zipperiffic}}: His outfit matches his power.

! Leone Abbacchio (Stand: Moody Blues)
-> Voiced by: TaitenKusunoki (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/TetsuInada (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* AnimeHair: He has long hair that sticks up in the back in a gravity-defying manner.
* [[spoiler:AnyoneCanDie: The first to die in Vento Aureo.]]
* [[spoiler:BloodFromTheMouth]]
* [[spoiler:DeadManWriting: With his last ounce of strength, he uses Moody Blues to leave an imprint of Diavolo's face on a statue]].
* [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHim: He is killed without much of a fight, since his Stand is defenseless when in rebroadcast mode]].
* FaceHeelTurn: Before joining the mafia, he used to be a police officer.
** DirtyCop: Even as a police officer, however, he was not above taking bribes. It later came back to haunt him when one of the crooks he took a bribe from shot and killed his partner.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* [[spoiler:HeKnowsTooMuch]]: The very reason [[spoiler:Diavolo kills him]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* PunnyName: "Leone" means "lion" and "abbacchio" is a type of lamb.
* TimeMaster: Moody Blues allows him to rewind and re-view events, but he can't interact with them. It's basically a universal security camera.

! Guido Mista (Stand: Sex Pistols)
-> Guido voiced by: KenjiAkabane (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/KentaroIto (''Vento Aureo'' video game)
-> Sex Pistols voiced by: Creator/AsamiImai (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/KentaroIto (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* AbnormalAmmo: His Stand consists of six little imps who get fired out of his gun along with the regular bullets and help direct the bullets to their targets. They also like to eat pepperoni.
* {{Badass}}
* BangBangBANG: Discussed. At one point, Mista lampshades that his gun isn't as loud as "those you hear in movies."
* BareYourMidriff
* ButtMonkey: Number 5 of Sex Pistols is always getting beaten up by the other Numbers.
* CallBack: Of Hol Horse of Part 3. At least he can aim better.
* FourIsDeath: A childhood incident involving some cats resulted in Mista associating the number 4 with general misfortune. This is why the numbering for Sex Pistols skips from 3 to 5.
* TheGunslinger
* MadeOfIron: Takes some truly brutal injuries during Part 5, even compared to the rest of the cast.
* [[spoiler:ManIFeelLikeAWoman]]: While under the effects of [[spoiler:Silver Chariot Requiem]].
* NiceHat
* RapeAsDrama: Before he joined Passione, he ran into a street gang trying to rape a woman. His determination to stop them awakened Sex Pistols. Suffice to say the rape did ''not'' succeed.
* RevolversAreJustBetter
* ShipTease: With Trish.
* TalkingWeapon
* UnorthodoxReload: He reloads with bullets dropped from his hat sometimes, but reloads normally just as often.
* WeirdnessMagnet

! Narancia Ghirga (Stand: Aerosmith)
-> Voiced by: Creator/YukoSanpei (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/FujikoTakimoto (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* {{Badass}}
* BookDumb: 16 x 55 = 28!
* BrattyHalfPint: Somewhat.
* ButtMonkey: Seems to have a bad problem with being the first person subjected to the newest enemy's Stand, especially if it's a potentially humiliating one like shrinking, rapid aging, or [[TongueTied being unable to say what you mean]]. If ''everyone'' is subjected to the newest enemy's Stand, he will always get the worst of it.
* CrossDressingVoices
* [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHim: Diavolo kills him without any real warning, ''off-screen.'' The group figured it was so his Stand's [=CO2=] radar wouldn't notice someone else chasing after Silver Chariot Requiem. Later, we find out he got sent into Mista's body along with Trish, and Narancia wouldn't have found him out any earlier than the others.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Fitting, given his Stand's namesake.
* [[spoiler:IfWeGetThroughThis: Narancia, you just ''had'' to start talking about how you want to return to your hometown when this is all over. You even knew the BigBad was lurking somewhere off-screen waiting to jump on everyone!]]
* EdibleThemeNaming: "Narancia" sounds like a blend of the words for "orange" in Italian ("arancia") and Spanish ("naranja").
* IllKillYou: Ends up saying this a lot, due to his cranky personality and status as ButtMonkey.
* {{Kiai}}: Vola Vola Vola Vola Vola Vola Volare Via!
* KnifeNut: A mild example, but he's pretty fond of whipping out that switchblade whenever someone pisses him off. Which is often.
* MoreDakka: His stand, Aerosmith, makes up for its lack of precision with more than enough gunfire to rip a car to shreds.
* TheNapoleon: He's the smallest of the gang and the most cantankerous.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Risotto Nero had the upper hand on Doppio until Aerosmith intervened]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: As pointed out in their first meeting, Narancia is two years older than Giorno. However, due to childhood malnutrition and a lack of education, he looks and acts like the youngest member of the group.
* StuffBlowingUp: His stand, Aerosmith, has plenty of firepower, but poor aim. As a result, any fights against faster, more evasive enemies tend to transform the battleground into a war-zone.
* SuperSenses: His [=CO2=] scope.
* WeirdnessMagnet

! Pannacotta Fugo (Stand: Purple Haze[[spoiler:/Purple Haze Distortion]])
-> Voiced by: Hisafumi Oda (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/HiroakiMiura (''Vento Aureo'' video game)
-> Purple Haze: Creator/HisaoEgawa (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/HiroakiMiura (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

A member of Buccellati's gang and one of the most mature and smart people in the group. [[spoiler:Leaves Buccellati and the rest after he learns the Boss's plan and is the only one who decides not to stay with the rest.]]

* ADayInTheLimelight: A light novel called ''Purple Haze Feedback'' was written by Kouhei Kadono (of [[{{LightNovel/BoogiepopSeries}} Boogiepop]] fame) for the series' 25th anniversary. The novel greatly expands on Fugo's character during and after the events of the original manga.
* TheBerserker: His Stand, Purple Haze; it may reflect his HairTriggerTemper being fully manifested.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He comes off as one of the more mature and polite members of the gang, but he has a short fuse and a ''very'' dangerous Stand.
* {{Bishonen}}
* [[spoiler:ConflictingLoyalty]]: The in-story reason why [[spoiler:Fugo stays behind when Buccellati's gang defects. He is torn between his loyalty to Diavolo and to Buccellati.]] ''Purple Haze Feedback'' resolves this.
* DubNameChange: There was no way in Hell CyberConnect2 was going to get Purple Haze past the viciously-protective Hendrix estate, so it's Purple Smoke in English.
* EdibleThemeNaming: Panna cotta (cooked cream) is an Italian dessert.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* HairTriggerTemper: He has a very short fuse, despite seeming very calm and mature. This aspect of him ended in him assaulting his professor with a textbook, and is reflected in his Stand going berserk and uncontrollable sometimes.
* MyGreatestFailure: If we allow ''All-Star Battle'' a bit of canonicity, specifically its post-fight comments, Fugo never forgave himself for [[spoiler:not getting on the boat with the rest of Buccellati's group]].
* NeatFreak: Purple Haze has this personality, and by extension he has it too.
* OptOut: The in-verse explanation to why [[spoiler:he left after Buccellati draws a LineInTheSand]], which is explored more in his novel. Out-verse... see PutOnABus for more information.
* PeekABangs
* PoisonousPerson: His Stand's power [[StoryBreakerPower to an extreme extent]].
* PutOnABus: Araki [[spoiler:took him out of the group]] because his Stand's ability was so cheap that he had difficulty designing battles with him around. Given what [[{{Gorn}} Purple Haze's virus does]], this is arguably a ''good'' thing.
** He gets his own side story, though.
* TeamDad: Often acts as a surrogate parent or older brother to Narancia and Mista, joining in their stranger antics and trying to tutor Narancia because of his poor background.
* TheSmartGuy: He tested high in school but failed to excel due to his short temper.
* StoryBreakerPower: His stand Purple Haze has three globes on his knuckles of each hand that contain a deadly virus that quickly eats up all organic matter in the area where a globe is broken, until it gets hit by sunlight.
** [[spoiler:Purple Haze even gained another ability in Kadono's light novel when it evolved into Purple Haze Distortion -- now those deadly viruses ''can eat other viruses, including itself.'']]

! Trish Una (Stand: Spice Girl)
-> Voiced by: Creator/RioNatsuki (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* ActionGirl: In addition to a surprisingly useful ability, Spice Girl is also very physically powerful and fast.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:When she and Diavolo are forced to share a body by Silver Chariot Requiem, Trish actually uses her stand to save Diavolo's life, secretly, by softening some bullets that were fired at him. Diavolo didn't notice this and thought his stand was powerful enough to just punch the bullets out of the way, so Trish was able to catch him by surprise later by suddenly restoring the bullets' kinetic energy.]]
* CallingTheOldManOut: During the final battle.
* CharacterDevelopment: Spice Girl's arrival is explicitly linked to Trish's growing confidence and courage.
* DistressedDamsel: At first. She later holds her own in assisting her group, though she's still by far the least experienced among them.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Spice Girl's power is softening things. As is traditional in [=JoJo=], it only ''sounds'' useless.
* HeroicBastard
* MsFanservice
* ThePresidentsDaughter: Her role in the story.
* SamusIsAGirl: Buccellati's gang first meet Trish when she's in disguise as a janitor. When she reveals herself, the boys are quite surprised to see she's a girl, especially since she'd just beaten up Narancia.
* [[spoiler:[[HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows Too Much]]: The reason why Diavolo wants to kill her. Despite the fact that Trish knows ''nothing'' about who he really is. Diavolo is just that paranoid.]]
* ShipTease: With Mista.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She's the only named female character in Part 5.

! Coco Jumbo (Stand: Mr. President)

* BiggerOnTheInside: Mr. President creates a well-furnished hotel room inside of Coco Jumbo's shell, which anyone it chooses can access. [[spoiler:This is where Polnareff lives after having his soul attached to Coco Jumbo following his physical body's death.]]
* TeamPet: He's a turtle.
* WeirdnessMagnet


! Leaky-Eye Luca
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Attacks a frog created by Gold Experience with a shovel, causing him to cave in his own skull when the attack is reflected back at him.
* {{Jerkass}}: When a frog jumps on Giorno (created by his stand, but Luca doesn't know that,) he orders Giorno to step on it for no reason other than to be an asshole, and then tries to kill it himself (this backfires horribly.) It's also revealed later on that he sold drugs to children.
* ManlyTears: Sort of. His right eye constantly tears up because of an eye injury.
* {{Muggle}}: The only member of Buccelatti's group to not have a stand.
* ShovelStrike: His weapon of choice when confronting Giorno.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He dies in the very same chapter he's introduced, but it's because of his death that Buccelatti tracks down Giorno to get the identity of his murderer out of him.
* ZeroEffortBoss: Giorno doesn't need to lift a finger to beat him.

! Polpo (Stand: Black Sabbath)
-> Voiced by: Creator/YujiKishi (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* [[spoiler:AteHisGun: Literally tried to do this. In his defense, at that time it was transformed into a banana. It did not end well.]]
* BigEater
* BlackEyesOfCrazy
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: One has to wonder how exactly Polpo came to look like he does.
* EdibleThemeNaming: "Polpo" means octopus.
* FatBastard
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* {{Gonk}}
* KickTheDog: Black Sabbath kills an unfortunate janitor that was unlucky enough to relight the lighter that actually calls him forth. [[spoiler:Giorno doesn't let it slide.]]
* LivingShadow
* LuxuryPrisonSuite: Polpo eats ''well'' in prison.
* MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll
* SuperEmpowering: Black Sabbath can stab people with an arrow to either grant them a stand or kill them.
* WeakenedByTheLight
* WickedCultured: He has several well-known paintings in his cell.

! Mario Zucchero (Stand: Soft Machine)
-> Voiced by: Creator/RyuzouIshino (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* ColdBloodedTorture: Suffers this at the hands of Giorno's group after his defeat. It involves a fishhook, glasses, and getting sectioned by Sticky Fingers. [[AntiHero What? They are members of the Mafia, after all.]]
* DrivesLikeCrazy
* EdibleThemeNaming: "Zucchero" is sugar.
* MightyGlacier: While Soft Machine's deflation power is devastating — one poke and you're not fighting anymore, and very much at Zucchero's mercy — it has ''terrible'' range. This is why Zucchero takes pains to first corner enemies in a narrow space, so they won't have time to dodge the stabs.
* WeirdnessMagnet

! Sale (Stand: Kraftwerk)

* AttackReflector: One of the truly scary things he can do with guns is, once Kraftwerk's stilled the bullets, ''tap'' the bullet with his own finger to add potential kinetic energy. Once enough is stored, the bullet will fly off on its own, ''back toward the poor sap who shot at Sale''.
* [[spoiler:BackForTheDead: He reappears in the Light Novel Purple Haze Feedback, and is quickly killed off.]]
* EdibleThemeNaming: "Sale" is salt.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* FloatingPlatforms: Turning individual pieces of gravel into these is yet another application of Kraftwerk.
* MadeOfIron: Even getting a bullet in the outside of his brain doesn't kill him! [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Heavy might have a problem here...]]
* NighInvulnerable: As far as he's concerned, he's this because his Stand can alter the velocity of ''anything'' it touches so that it stands still with respect to him. This includes ''bullets''.

! Squalo (Stand: Clash)

* [[spoiler:BerserkerTears]]
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* [[ThreateningShark Everything's Even Worse With Sharks]]: Especially when they are in your soup and can jump from liquid to liquid as needed to follow you...
* {{Gayngster}}: And before you ask, Tizziano and Squalo are the only Passione members depicted as being gay. They're also a couple.
* MeaningfulName: Italian for "shark."

! Tizziano (Stand: Talking Head)

* DarkSkinnedBlond
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* {{Gayngster}}
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* PoorCommunicationKills: The reason he is so deadly when combined with Clash, as he can invoke this on his victims.
* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet: Not just to save his beloved Squalo, but also to give Clash a liquid field via his own blood. Sadly, it doesn't buy Squalo much more than about a minute, if that.]]
* TongueTied: His Stand twists the victim's words so they always communicate the opposite of their intent -- even if it's writing or gesturing.

! Carne (Stand: Notorious B.I.G.)
* AwesomeButImpractical: Notorious B.I.G is one of the strongest Stands of the manga. But you have to die to activate his power.
* BlobMonster: Notorious B.I.G.
* CompleteImmortality: Noticeably, it is one of the few Stands that can outlive their master, including Anubis, but more importantly cannot be destroyed by any means, being able to regenerate from any attack that even harms it.
** [[PersonalityPowers Likely because his master dies so easily, Notorious B.I.G. inherits his master's desire to live no matter what to achieve vengeance.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Horribly, ''horribly'' subverted. Carne goes down in a minute thanks to Mista. And then Notorious B.I.G. attacks...
* EldritchAbomination: Even by Stand standards, it's bizarre. It is immortal, able to infect the nearest body in order to grow as well as control those infected parts, and has an overall monstrous appearance.
* {{Gonk}}: It's quite hard to tell where his neck ''begins''.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* HopelessBossFight: While Carne goes down easily, Notorious B.I.G is so strong that only [[spoiler:dropping it in the ocean]] keeps it from harming the heroes any further.
* MeaningfulName: His name means "meat," as in "dead meat." Doubles as EdibleThemeNaming.
* MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning: Notorious B.I.G. isn't truly activated until it receives feelings of hate and contempt on account of ''Carne's death''.
* NighInvulnerable: And unlike Yellow Temperance and Yo-Yo Ma, there is absolutely nothing anybody can do about it. Their best bet is to [[spoiler:drop it in the ocean]].

! Cioccolata (Stand: Green Day)
-> Voiced by: Creator/NaoyaUchida (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/RyuzouIshino (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* AMatchMadeInStockholm: Thinks Secco was this to him. [[spoiler:[[AvertedTrope Actually, not in the least.]]]]
* AnimeHair: Long spikes with puff-balls on the ends. And it's [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green]].
* AxCrazy: Like most villains, but [[TheUnfettered has no restraints whatsoever to limit his insanity]], such as Alessi's cowardice and Dio's twisted sense of honor, making him incredibly dangerous.
* BadPowersBadPeople: Flesh-eating mold that causes people to explode; sounds like the perfect power for a psychotic MadDoctor who LovesTheSoundOfScreaming.
* BareYourMidriff: His outfit.
* BodyHorror: A lot of Stands are downright nasty, but a flesh-devouring mold that makes people explode if it germinates fast enough? Even more amazing, he's immune to the more harmful effects, so he can sever off body parts and use the mold to prevent blood loss and keep nerves connected? Geez.
* CatchPhrase: Good, Good, Good, Good.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: There's a cross on his chest that opens to his midriff.
* [[spoiler:CruelAndUnusualDeath: Crushed in a garbage truck's compactor. Dude brought it on himself.]]
* [[spoiler:DetachmentCombat: He can dismember himself and keep the various parts still functioning even when they're not connected.]]
* TheDragon: To Diavolo, [[spoiler:since Doppio is actually his split personality]], and his overall threat to Giorno to prevent him from interfering with his plans is definitely a match.
** DragonWithAnAgenda: To kill anyone who chances to cross his path is the main reason he even serves as TheDragon.
*** TheStarScream: Arguably; his posthumous speech to Secco implies that he planned to "exceed the boss" in fighting capability.
* DubNameChange: It's Green Tea in the English ''All-Star Battle''.
* EdibleThemeNaming: Chocolate.
* EvilCounterpart: To Giorno, as both have Stands that can manipulate living things. Where Giorno temporarily vitalizes things, though, Cioccolata effectively ''de''-vitalizes whatever the spores manifest upon.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: See InsaneTrollLogic for more details.
* FacialMarkings: Hard to tell if they're makeup, tattoos, or something else. At any rate, they're creepy.
* FakingTheDead: Near the end of the fight with Giorno. [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Although like his father, Giorno's not fooled,]] [[CrazyPrepared and was even prepared for it beforehand.]]
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet: He was already a nasty piece of work. Developing Green Day just made him even worse.
* FluffyTheTerrible: His name translates to chocolate, but he's far more bitter than sweet.
* ForTheEvulz: The reason why he kills people is to see their faces trapped in terror as they perish.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Believes humanity grows stronger through curiosity, and curiosity amplifies as people die.
* KarmicDeath: Diavolo calls him and Secco trash. Both he and Secco are flung into garbage trucks on their defeats.
* KillThemAll: Does this to a notable chunk of Rome for a [[ForTheEvulz motiveless killing spree]].
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: After a long beatdown, he's finally shot down into a dumpster, having died from the impact of Gold Experience's punches.]]
* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: The sounds? '''He wants to see your face as you die recorded on tape''' to watch on a later date.
* MadBomber: By the sheer nature of his explosive germinating Stand, and the fact he essentially goes on a killing spree on Rome to kill as many people as possible.
* MadDoctor: Became a doctor specifically so he could torture and experiment on people.
* MonsterClown: With his puff ball AnimeHair, {{Guyliner}}, FacialMarkings, and overall monstrous behavior, he looks like a deranged harlequin.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: With his BodyHorror abilities, psychotic looks, and [[TheSociopath his depravity]], Cioccolata's this all by himself.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Subjected to the longest one in the series as of yet, going for about '''seven pages in total''', resulting in his death.
* OnlyFriend: Thinks of Secco as this, as he trusts him to find the man with the {{Macguffin}} in his place.
* PetTheDog: His sole redeeming quality is his treatment of Secco like a loyal dog servant and treating him a great deal better than anyone. [[spoiler: Too bad Secco's loyalty is pretty much all an act.]]
* PsychoForHire: He's the only member of Passione who seems to be in it purely because he enjoys watching people suffer and die.
* SerialKiller: You did ''not'' want to end up at the hospital where he worked.
* SlasherSmile: When Giorno falls down, he unleashes an epic one while gloating about his logic.
* SocialDarwinist: Believes that the strong should dominate the weak.
* StuffBlowingUp: A nasty side effect of the mold -- if it germinates fast enough, it causes the victim to explode.
* TheUnfettered: What makes him dangerous is that he has no pragmatic or ethical restraints like most villainous Stand Users to hold him back from being a malice elemental.
* VillainousFriendship: Type 1 with Secco.
** [[spoiler:It's actually a Type 2.]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]

! Secco (Stand: Oasis)
-> Voiced by: Creator/HiroShimono (''All-Star Battle''), TakayasuUsui (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* AMatchMadeInStockholm: Secco was originally one of [[MadDoctor Cioccolata's]] patients, and now he's his loyal sidekick.
** [[spoiler:[[ObfuscatingStupidity Or so you would think]].]]
* DishingOutDirt
* EvilCounterpart: To Bruno
* ImprobableWeaponUser: When he isn't dragging Green Day's victims down to get the mold to germinate, he will spit ''mud'' at his foe. Here's the problem for his opponent, though -- it's only mud when it's within Oasis, the relevant sub-area in this case being Secco's mouth. Once it's fully spit out, it turns ''back'' into rock. ''High-velocity'' rock.
* LetsGetDangerous: [[spoiler:Once Ciocolata dies, he shows he is ''much'' more dangerous and intelligent than he initially appeared.]]
* MeaningfulName: Secco means both "dry" and "slim" or "skinny", in Italian. He ''is'' quite skinny, and his stand allows him to turn the "dry" soil into a more malleable (and ''swimmable'') substance.
* [[spoiler:ObfuscatingInsanity: He's quite a bit more stable than he made himself out to be.]]
* [[spoiler:ObfuscatingStupidity: It was just so he could easily tag along with Cioccolata. Once Cioccolata dies and Secco finds he wasn't as strong as he thought, though...]]
* [[SandIsWater Stone Is Water]]: His Stand power other than manifesting as armor.
* SelfDisposingVillain: [[spoiler:Being spooked by Doppio results in him landing in a dumpster, killing him instantly.]]
* SycophanticServant: An idolizing, almost pet-like sidekick to Cioccolata. [[spoiler:It's an act to be able to enjoy watching Cioccolata's depradations firsthand.]]
* [[spoiler:UngratefulBastard: Despite Cioccolata having treated him with candy, money, and overall better treatment than anyone else in Passione would give him, Secco couldn't care less if he was felled.]]
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* YesMan: To Cioccolata. [[spoiler:It's only to be able to participate in the slaughter, ''not'' out of prior emotional attachment.]]

! Vinegar Doppio
-> Voiced by: AkiraIshida (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/MitsuruMiyamoto (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

Another operative of Diavolo's, Doppio is actually rather weak. Granted, [[BullyingADragon he's not one to screw with]], but he's at least far nicer than the other members, only ever acting rude when upset.

* {{Adorkable}}
* BareYourMidriff
* {{Bishonen}}: He's even voiced by AkiraIshida in ''All-Star Battle''.
* CloudCuckooLander: At least, to those around him.
* CombatClairvoyance: Has a limited version of this granted to him by his boss.
* CuteAndPsycho
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:Sorta. He ''is'' the boss, but doesn't realize it.]]
* EdibleThemeNaming: "Vinegar", obviously. In the Italian translation he's renamed Aceto, which means the same but has the benefits of a) actually being Italian and b) sounding more like an actual name.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* MuggingTheMonster: [[spoiler:Anyone trying to mug or bully Doppio is in for a nasty surprise.]]
* [[spoiler:OlderThanTheyLook: Despite looking to be around the protagonists' age, he's actually the SplitPersonality of Diavolo, a much older and psychotic man.]]
* ShrinkingViolet
* ShoePhone: Parodied. Doppio's main form of communication with his boss is supposedly his cell phone. But when it breaks, he starts grabbing random objects and treating them like they were his cell phone, going so far as to make [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud ring tone noises]] himself. They have been car charms, toy phones, frogs, and many other things.
* [[spoiler:SplitPersonality: To Diavolo.]]

! Diavolo (Stand: King Crimson)
-> Voiced by: Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/MitsuruMiyamoto (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

The Boss of Passione, Diavolo is ''obsessed'' with keeping himself secret. He's murdered family members, friends, associates, and even random people if they've seen his face, and above all there can be no information about him and where he is located at any time. Cold-hearted, Diavolo won't let anything stand in his way.

His Stand is named after the British rock band Music/KingCrimson.

* [[spoiler:[[AbsurdlyYouthfulMother Absurdly Youthful Father:]] [[http://kissmanga.com/Manga/JoJo-s-Bizarre-Adventure-Part-5-Vento-Aureo/Vol-061-Ch-563-571--They-Called-Him-Diavolo--Old-scans-?id=150403#63 Diavolo was born in 1967]], while [[http://kissmanga.com/Manga/JoJo-s-Bizarre-Adventure-Part-5-Vento-Aureo/Vol-063-Ch-583-594--Sleeping-Slaves--Old-scans---End-of-Part-005-?id=150407#147 Trish was born in 1985.]] A bit of simple math shows us that Diavolo was ''18'' when Trish was born.]]
* [[spoiler:ActionDad: To Trish, though it's too bad he doesn't have the heart of one.]]
* [[spoiler:ArchnemesisDad: To Trish.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: TheDon of Passione.
* AxCrazy: A subdued variant compared to Cioccolata's more obvious insanity, and arguably worse. He suffers from extreme irrational paranoia -- [[spoiler:enough to kill his daughter, Trisha, who's completely unrelated to the Mafia affair]]. Even his goals are very unconventional; see EvilPlan below.
* {{Badass}}: He has a Rank A Strength Stand with the ability to skip time and see into the future. [[spoiler:The only way that the heroes even beat it is to activate an even more ridiculous ability -- that of the NoSell.]]
* BadassInANiceSuit: Early glimpses of him have him wearing a suit. He doesn't wear it in the final battle, [[spoiler:presumably because he doesn't have time to change out of Doppio's clothes other than removing his sweater.]]
* BarbarianLongHair
* BadBoss: And how! [[spoiler: La Squadra wants him dead for killing their two comrades for searching for his identity. This was because they were denied a promotion, despite being an effective fighting squad.]]
** [[spoiler:Which he does by gagging the first to be ForcedToWatch as he cuts the second into pieces, enough to force the former to commit suicide. And then delivers more than 30 pieces of his body by his messengers, one at a time to La Squadra. Earning their anger.]]
* BaitTheDog: [[spoiler:Wanted Trish to be brought to him, but it's not to protect her, it's to ''kill her''. He's '''that''' paranoid!]]
* BastardBastard
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:He needs Trish dead. He wants Squadra dead for going rogue, and Bruno's group dead for attempting to get more power; let's pit them against each other and take out the surviving group after they're all worn out]].
* BigBad: Of Vento Aureo.
** BigBadEnsemble: With Nero, [[UnwittingPawn who he manipulated into fighting his enemies for him]], and of course Dio, not that they were aware of each other at any time beyond the offering of the Stand Arrow; they still would've fought, as Diavolo's [[TakeOverTheWorld goals]] would've conflicted with [[AGodAmI Dio's]] [[spoiler:had Jotaro not killed the latter first.]]
* {{Biseinen}}: He is very handsome [[spoiler:for a child murdering father...]]
* TheChessmaster: Manipulates everyone into ultimately serving him or disposing of those who oppose him by pitting them against other groups.
* [[ContrastingSequelMainCharacter Contrasting Sequel Big Bad]]: Kira had a rather mundane history, aside from the whole hand fetish and serial murder thing, was dangerous mainly because he kept slipping away before he could be punished for his heinous actions, and wanted to live a "normal" life. Meanwhile, Diavolo had a past that was saturated in weirdness, was dangerous because he used his intellect and enormously powerful Stand to hunt down his enemies instead of run away from them, and wanted absolutely no one to know he existed, which is pretty far from normal.
** LackOfEmpathy: Diavolo is also different from all his contemporaries in that he was completely ruthless. While the other antagonists all loved somebody other than themselves[[note]]Dio to Pucci and vice versa, Kira his many girlfriends (in a way), Kars to the other Pillar Men, and Funny Valentine to his wife and father[[/note]], Diavolo held no affection for anyone. [[spoiler:Especially his own daughter. You can say it's averted with Doppio, however, as he encouraged Doppio to fight and to dodge and, honestly, didn't seem to notice at all that Doppio had died.]]
*** But perhaps averted, as it bears noting that even after he began his mission of erasing his past, Diavolo [[spoiler:never killed Donatella.]]
* DubNameChange: King Crimson is promoted to Emperor Crimson for ''All-Star Battle'' in English-speaking countries. It fits with his CatchPhrase of declaring himself emperor. In addition, his "Epitaph" attack (taken from a King Crimson song) becomes "Eulogy".
* [[spoiler:CurbStompBattle: Skipping time means squat against a NoSell ability '''that negates anything you do''', as he found out.]]
* CombatClairvoyance: King Crimson has a secondary ability called Epitaph that lets him see 10 seconds into the future. It functions more as a RequiredSecondaryPower, since otherwise he wouldn't be able to predict or plan around King Crimson's time skip.
** TheOmniscient: Epitaph is incredibly powerful for what it does, and simultaneously reveals to Diavolo every and all actions and outcomes that could take place. Diavolo himself says that, rather than predicting what happens and reacting to that, he merely chooses which outcome he wishes to happen.
* TheDon: Of the Passione Mafia. Though an unusually low-profile one.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: His background strongly implies that [[spoiler:after seeing his mother BuriedAlive under the apartment that the priest who raised him built]], he went berserk and became the paranoid man he is today.
** [[spoiler:Subverted, in that it's implied that he in fact BuriedAlive a woman implied to be his mother with her tongue cut out and eyes sewed under the apartment he lived in.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Cioccolata's past crimes actually unnerve Diavolo himself. They're the only things that are known to do this to him, though.
* EvilPlan: Mix an obsession of being the UltimateEvil and TakeOverTheWorld by using the Stand Arrow in order to gain its Requiem power, and you get a very paradoxical ambition.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Courtesy of Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa.
* TheFaceless: For a good chunk of Part 5. His first fight with Buccellati has his face constantly obscured by shadows or by King Crimson.
* [[spoiler:FateWorseThanDeath: He ends up getting sent into an infinite death loop courtesy of Gold Experience Requiem, experiencing a variety of ends but never truly dying.]]
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet: His Stand, King Crimson, whose power brings too much unwanted attention to himself. He takes the "Stands attract Stands" concept really far, as he develops an extensive organization populated by Stand Users.
* FreudianExcuse: He went berserk after [[spoiler:finding out that his mother was BuriedAlive under the apartment that the priest built for him]]. This led him to kill the priest who raised him, and also caused him to never trust anyone again.
** [[spoiler: Maybe defied, as the priest found out that a woman Diavolo hung out with, implied to be his mother, had her mouth sewed and tongue cut off. So maybe Diavolo was always irrationally paranoid.]]
*** [[spoiler:Or perhaps not always. While it is implied that Diavolo had a falling out with his mother, he was still keeping her barely alive, yet unable to talk to anyone. Having her discovered by the priest lead him to flip out and burn down his entire village to hide the evidence, starting his lifelong obsession.]]
* TheGhost[=/=]TheSpook[=/=]TheDreaded: His goal in the series is to remain a feared, shadowy leader through any means necessary.
** That and TakeOverTheWorld once he tries to take the Arrow for himself to dominate all life with the incredible power it wields.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: [[spoiler:When it revealed that the priest who raised him had his mother BuriedAlive under the apartment he built over her remains]], Diavolo snapped.
** [[spoiler:Subverted in that it's implied he in fact BuriedAlive his own mother and later burnt down the church he was raised in, along with his adopted priest father. He was insane from the get-go.]]
*** [[spoiler:Or perhaps played straight, considering that he didn't burn down the village until the priest found his mother. And since Polnareff directly states that multiple personality disorder is caused by childhood trauma in the Jojoverse, the terror from being discovered may have outright split his psyche in two.]]
* {{Guyliner}}
* HairTriggerTemper
* TheHeavy: Found the Stand-creating Arrows that created the mess starting with Part 3.
* HellishPupils[=/=]UhOhEyes[=/=]WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: Has extremely small pupils like his Stand, [[spoiler:except when possessed by Bruno, when he temporarily gains normal looking eyes.]]
* {{Hunk}}: In contrast of Kira SalaryMan appearance, Diavolo is [[MrFanservice completely ripped]]
* InTheHood: His first -shadowed- appearance has him with this, covered in a blanket in a dark room while musing about finding his daughter.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:When found out by Polnareff, he gloats about being discovered; this is paradoxical to his usual, xenophobic desire of not being seen by others.]]
* LetsYouAndHimFight: [[spoiler:He pretty much set up Squadra against Bruno's team, even if both were against Diavolo]].
* LightningBruiser: King Crimson has shown to be able to easily parry, react to, and even outmaneuver faster-than-light Stands like Silver Chariot, Sticky Fingers, and Gold Experience, even without the use of Epitaph. King Crimson's speed may be comparable to that of even Star Platinum. Likewise, his strength is incredible, and he can rip apart opponents with a single MegatonPunch, rather than using RapidFireFisticuffs like other powerful Stands.
* ManipulativeBastard: Prefers to control others from the shadows like he does Squadra and Bruno's group.
* MeaningfulName: Diavolo means "devil" in Italian to counter Dio's "God". [[spoiler: And "Doppio" means "Double".]]
* MrFanservice: Permanently shirtless.
* [[spoiler:NiceJobFixingItVillain: Tries to use Squadra to kill Bruno's team in order to kill two birds with one stone, but unfortunately, Nero manages to survive long enough to find him and nearly kill him, becoming even more vengeful with the death of his entire squad. If it weren't for Narancia's attack, it would've killed him.]]
* [[spoiler:OffingTheOffspring: Spends all of Part 5 trying to kill Trish. He briefly succeeds when he forces her soul out of Mista's body, but Buccellati saves her by reversing the soul-swapping process.]]
* [[spoiler:ParentalAbandonment: He left Trish's mother for unknown reasons, but [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou he averts the hell out of the usual guilt of leaving Trish behind]], as he attempts to have her killed as soon as it's revealed she's related to him.]]
* PerpetualFrowner: King Crimson will always have that "pissed off 24/7" face. No exceptions.
* SelfMadeOrphan: Subverted in that he didn't kill his criminal mother [[spoiler:(she was found BuriedAlive under the apartment that the priest built for him)]], but played straight that he killed the priest who raised him.
** But perhaps it was played entirely straight. [[spoiler:Before finding his mother buried underground, the priest saw Diavolo walking along a beach with a mysterious girl, who is implied to be his mother. Shortly afterward, the priest finds her with her mouth sewn shut and her tongue cut out, which is exactly what Diavolo later does to a child to use as bait. The town is burned to the ground not long after the priest's discovery.]]
** WhereIWasBornAndRazed: Burnt down the church he was raised in.
* SinisterSilhouettes: Spends the entirety of his fight with Bruno as one.
* TheSociopath: Extremely prone to fits of anger and is extremely paranoid, plus the whole LackOfEmpathy thing.
* [[spoiler:SplitPersonality: An integral part of Diavolo's masquerade is that he has a ''second'' personality, Vinegar Doppio, which he allows to stay in the forefront of the body's control while still observing. Doppio, while a member of Passione, is still pretty innocent compared to the likes of Cioccolata and Risotto, and is also a cardinal {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, thanks to the way Diavolo communicates with him. Oddly enough, when Chariot Requiem goes haywire, it turns out that Doppio and Diavolo are actually ''separate souls''. Arguably, they're actually a chimera resulting from one fetus absorbing the other in utero.]]
** [[spoiler: SuperPoweredEvilSide: To Vinegar Doppio.]]
* SmashCut: The manifestation of his power.
* SuperStrength: King Crimson is easily one of the strongest physical Stands in the series, especially since unlike most Stands that have this trait, it can kill a person or cut a person's arm clean off in one punch, rather than RapidFireFisticuffs which is the usual case.
* TeleportSpam: King Crimson's power makes him look like he's doing this, [[TimeMaster although the true nature of his power is much different.]]
* TimeMaster: King Crimson's ability is to erase time. For ten seconds, every action and event that takes place has no effect and no one else retains any memory of that time interval, but the ''consequences'' of any of those actions remain [[note]]This is represented by time being compressed to a single point in which causality doesn't exist; at the time, people don't perceive this and take actions as if everything were normal, but in actuality every instant in which those actions occur exist simultaneously rather than leading into each other -- in this sense, time doesn't exist and is "erased".[[/note]]. The nature of the erased time allows Diavolo to see all possible actions simultaneously and follow whichever sequence of events he wants to occur during the time skip using Epitaph. The most intuitive explanation, and the one that Diavolo himself seems to favor, is that for about 10 seconds, he controls fate and destiny in the surrounding area.
** This is represented in other media as teleportation or time slowing down. The Vento Aureo PS2 game represents this by having time slow down when he uses it, the screen colors going negative, and everyone's movements slowed down to a jerky sort of stop motion. ''All-Star Battle'' has the screen turn red and the opponent freezing in place.
%%He can make time skip itself. Basically, he makes everything suddenly shift to what causality would result in in ten seconds time, without himself being affected with everything else. The Vento Aureo PS2 game represents this by having time slow down when he uses it, the screen colours going negative and everyone's movements slowed down to a jerky sort of stop motion.
%%** Unfortunately, the way the Stand's power is described in-universe doesn't particularly make sense, and its 'skipping' is somewhat paradoxical, which led to the fan response of
%%--->'''Question:''' How does King Crimson work?
%%--->'''Answer:''' It just does.
%%** The easiest way to explain King Crimson is thus: If The World was the pause button on a remote, and Another One Bites the Dust is the repeat button, King Crimson is comparable to removing footage from a video; cause and effect happen normally, but the interconnecting period is removed. Because his sub-stand Epitaph allows him to see the future, and because everyone except him is disoriented when time suddenly shifts forward, he uses that to his advantage by utilizing the deleted time to get into position for a surprise attack, and kill enemies with King Crimson's A-Rank Strength the instant that the timeskip happens. Polnareff figured this out and knew how to counter it by cutting his finger and watching for when the blood pool suddenly got bigger for no reason, then immediately slashed all around him with Silver Chariot. [[spoiler:It would have worked too if KC wasn't so strong that it didn't matter.]]
* UltimateEvil: Desperately wants to be this, but ultimately fails.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Well, it's actually a mesh shirt, for what it's worth.
* WhosYourDaddy: Inverse edition. To call the circumstances regarding his conception "bizarre" would be a gross understatement. [[spoiler:His mother was an inmate in a female prison with absolutely no male guards. Add in the timing of when she was incarcerated, ''and'' the oddly long pregnancy, and we are looking at one very difficult-to-decipher paternity issue, in the form of ''no'' viable candidates. At all.]]
* YouCantThwartStageOne: Averted in a series where the BigBad usually gets what he wants before a DeusExMachina shows up to punish them, [[spoiler:not only does he not get the Stand Arrow to increase his power, he becomes the guinea pig for the enhanced power of Giorno's new Requiem power.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: His is pink with green polka dots.


[[folder:La Squadra di Esecuzione]]

!! Tropes Associated With La Squadra di Esecuzione
* AntiVillain: A great deal of them, especially Nero and Pesche have humanizing traits of TrueCompanions-ship despite being the enemies of the heroes, as well as their need for vengeance against the BigBad for killing their two friends.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: While antagonizing the heroes for a great majority of the saga, they are ultimately a wall to beat in order to get to the BigBad's group.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Diavolo was using them to fight off the heroes, hoping they'd kill each other in their race to find the boss and kill him, rather than kill them all himself. This turns out to be a mistake that almost [[NiceJobFixingItVillain gets him killed by the remaining member, Nero,]] if not for a coincidental attack by Narancia on the latter.]]

-> Voiced by: TakumaTerashima (''All-Star Battle''), TakayasuUsui (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* TheDeterminator: [[spoiler:He promised Pesci that he'd keep his Stand running even if all his limbs were broken, and he ''meant it.'']]
* ConsummateProfessional
* TheGunslinger
* EdibleThemeNaming: Ham. No, really.
** Specifically, the word prosciutto derives from Latin pro (before) and exsuctus (to suck out [the moisture]), which makes his name a MeaningfulName.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: His Stand has eyes all over its body.
* EldritchAbomination: Grateful Dead probably has the most Lovecraftian design out of all the Stands.
* TheFaceless: During his first few appearances, his face is obscured by shadows.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* MadeOfIron: It's one thing to fall off of a train and survive. It's quite another to be [[spoiler:CRUSHED UNDER THE WHEELS OF ONE AND STILL KEEP HIS STAND RUNNING FOR A FEW MORE MINUTES.]]
* RapidAging: This is what Grateful Dead does to its victims.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Grateful Dead can do this to Prosciutto. [[spoiler:It's how he manages to trick Mista.]]

! Pesci (Stand: Beach Boy)
-> Voiced by: ShinyaFukumatsu (''All-Star Battle''), TomohiroNishimura (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* AnimeHair
* AttackReflector: All attacking the line will do is bounce your own attack back at you. [[spoiler:However, Buccellati manages to use this to his own advantage and to Prosciutto's detriment.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's mostly a shy person who respects Prosciutto as his brother. But once Buccellati [[spoiler:crushes Prosciutto under the train]]... he [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge stops being shy.]]
* CowardlyLion
* DubNameChange: "Beach Boy" becomes "Fisher Man" in English-language versions of ''All-Star Battle''. One can imagine Mike Love having a hard time with them otherwise.
* EdibleThemeNaming / MeaningfulName: Italian for ''fish''... the noun, mind you, not the verb. More correctly, ''fishes''.
* {{Gonk}}
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A FISHING ROD. Pesci's stand is ''a fishing rod''. [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower This being JoJo, he manages to make it extremely lethal.]]
* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: He calls Prosciutto "aniki," probably in the yakuza sense.
* LetsGetDangerous / TookALevelInBadass
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Buccellati unzips himself into a dozen pieces, including splitting his ''heart'' in half, to hide from Beach Boy's hook. He holds it so long that he almost dies... [[spoiler:until Pesci, flipping out in a rage over Prosciutto's death, forces the train to stop. This jumbles Buccellati's separated pieces back into each other, causing him to instinctively zip them together and revive.]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]
* WeirdnessMagnet

! Melone (Stand: Baby Face)
-> Voiced by: Creator/KenjiNojima (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/HidenobuKiuchi (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* {{Bishonen}}
* BodyHorror: Baby Face can break objects up into cubes, including living people, and transform them into other objects (or in the case of living things, just kill them by ripping out cubes of flesh.) It also comes into being by infecting a human host and learning from them for a short period of time before deconstructing them for extra mass.
* EdibleThemeNaming: Melon, cantaloupe.
* EvilCounterpart: Giorno notes that Baby Face's ability to turn living things into inanimate objects mirror's Gold Experience's ability to turn inanimate objects into living things.
* FashionableAsymmetry
* FetusTerrible[=/=]EnfantTerrible: His Stand actually ''creates'' these.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Sort of. After killing Baby Face, Giorno transforms its remains into a venomous snake, which returns to Melone and bites him.]]
* KillItWithFire: [[spoiler: How Baby Face eventually meets its end, getting tricked into absorbing the motorcycle it rode in on, and getting killed in the resulting gasoline explosion.]]
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* PeekABangs: The "deception" variety, though it also makes him look more [[{{Bishonen}} androgynous]].
* PowerIncontinence: In exchange for being a powerful long range stand, Baby Face is completely autonomous, and its willingness to listen to Melone depends on its original host. Unfortunately, this particular Baby Face eventually proves to be a bit too hot-headed and eventually starts disobeying him.

! Ghiaccio (Stand: White Album)
-> Voiced by: Creator/TatsuhisaSuzuki (''All-Star Battle''), TomohiroNishimura (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* AttackReflector: The main use of [[spoiler: White Album Gently Weeps, freezing the air around him to create floating ice crystals that deflect Mista's bullets back at him.]]
* AttackItsWeakPoint: Subverted. Ghiaccio has a very nasty surprise for anyone who tries to attack his weak point...
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Sort of. He occasionally goes off on very strange tangents.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The whole reason [[spoiler:White Album Gently Weeps]] exists.
* AnIcePerson: His Stand takes the form of ice armor around his body, and he can rapidly lower temperature in an area to create ice and trap his opponents.
* AnIceSuit: Literally, as described above. Additionally, the interior of the armor is insulated like an igloo, since his Stand powers don't actually include resistance to cold.
* ElementalArmor
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* [[RollerbladeGood Ice Skates Good]]
* [[spoiler:ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Mista tricks him into using White Album Gently Weeps when, unbeknownst to Ghiaccio, there's a broken tree right behind him. Newton's Second Law throws him throat-first onto it.]]
* MeaningfulName: Surprise surprise, his name means "ice" in Italian.
* NerdGlasses

! Risotto Nero (Stand: Metallica)
-> Voiced by: Creator/YujiKishi (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The human body contains around 3 gram of iron, not enough for even one razor, let alone a pair of scissors.
* {{Badass}}
* {{Invisibility}}
* TakingYouWithMe: Attemps this with Diavolo, but unfortunately fails.
* TheLeader: Of the Squadra.
* BloodyMurder: Although in this case, he's using his ''opponent's'' blood as a weapon.
* BodyHorror: This guy has the ability to transform the iron in a person's bloodstream into any kind of sharp metal objects he pleases, while the iron is still inside the person's body. Hence the [[EstablishingCharacterMoment memorable scene]] where he makes Doppio cough up a handful of razor blades.
* EdibleThemeNaming / MeaningfulName: "Nero" means black, which matches his outfit and his [[BlackEyesOfCrazy sclerae]]. And like most of his team, he also has some kind of food in his name. All together, it's "rice in cuttlefish ink". This is also a CallBack to Part 2, as Joseph was surprised to learn that noodles in squid ink, "nero di seppia", is an actual dish.
* ExtraOreDinary
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Risotto was actually defeating TheBigBad until he got shot by accident by Aerosmith.
* UhOhEyes
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Killed the guy who murdered his brother in his backstory.
** BlackEyesOfCrazy
** RedEyesTakeWarning
* WalkingShirtlessScene: He does have a jacket, but it's never buttoned and he doesn't wear a shirt under it.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart

! Koichi Hirose (Stand: Echoes)

! [[spoiler:Jean-Pierre Polnareff (Stand: Silver Chariot / Silver Chariot Requiem)]]
-> Voiced by: [[spoiler:Fuminori Komatsu (TV anime), HiroakiHirata (''All-Star Battle''), Ken Yamaguchi (CD drama), Creator/KatsujiMori (OVA), Tsutomu Tareki (''Heritage for the Future'' video game), Akira Negishi (''Vento Aureo'' video game)]]

! Scolippi (Stand: Rolling Stone)
-> Voiced by: Creator/HidenobuKiuchi (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

* BlessedWithSuck: His Stand [[spoiler:shows him how people who get close to him ''die''. If they touch it, it kills them (peacefully).]] There's nothing he can do but try to warn people, and as an automatic Stand it moves on its own, no matter his wishes.
* EdibleThemeNaming: his name is a distortion of "Scaloppine" (small scallops, thinly sliced meat).
* MessianicArchetype: Starts with a crown of thorns and gets stigmata over the course of his story. This combines with his general demeanor.
* YouCantFightFate: Played straight and averted. Rolling Stone automatically manifests near those it senses will die soon, and even gradually takes the form of what their pose will be at death. However, if the one sensed touches it, it will give them another, less futile way to die.
* WeirdnessMagnet
