Jolyne Cujoh (Stand: Stone Free)
Daughter of Jotaro Kujo. After being arrested for a crime she didn't commit, Jolyne is incarcerated in Green Dolphin State Penitentiary. Her father, realizing that something is amiss, sends her a package containing the tip of one of the Stand arrows, activating her latent abilities in the form of Stone Free. After her father is attacked by Whitesnake, she sets out to stop the priest Enrico Pucci and get Jotaro back to normal.
Her Stand is Stone Free, which allows her to unravel her body into string. This has various applications, including hearing distant sounds à la
a tin can phone, manipulating objects by wrapping them up and pulling the strings around, and whatever else Jolyne can think of
Her stand is named after the Jimi Hendrix
song "Stone Free"
- Anyone Can Die
- Badass Biker: She joined a biker gang when she was a teenager, and she is definitely badass.
- Badass Boast: "Hey, hey... Guess. Didn't you once say that every thing should have a name? I want to giver her a name too... Stone Free... I want to free myself from this stone ocean! Heard me? STONE FREE! This is her name!"
- Bare Your Midriff
- Broken Bird: Her father was absent for most of her life, not even coming home when she was very sick. She was so desperate for attention she stole a car when she fourteen, joined a biker gang and became pretty bitter. When she became adult she tried to clean up her act and go to college. Then she was framed for murder by her boyfriend, betrayed by her crooked lawyer, and sentenced to prison. Shortly after she found out her father, whom she had disowned long ago, had sent her the means to defend herself and was trying to protect her. Then her father told her he had always cared for her right after getting hurt because he was protecting her and right before getting his soul and power stolen. Her reaction? Becoming just as Badass like all of her family to get her father back and kicking all her enemies' butts in the process.
- Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: Butterflies are a motif in her character design. She even turns into butterflies when she dies, and sure enough gets reborn in the new universe.
- Catch Phrase: "Yare yare dawa," the feminine equivalent of her father's.
- Caught with Your Pants Down: In the first chapter.
- Delinquent: Must run in the family.
- Delinquent Hair
- Flipping the Bird: She even demonstrates how to do it in several different cultures.
- Freudian Excuse: A psychoanalyst assigns her Disappeared Dad as the reason she's been Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places.
- Gay Moment: Jolyne is jealous of snails for rather eyebrow-raising reasons◊.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: One of Stone Free's applications is to quickly stitch up wounds - Something which Jolyne finds herself using a lot.
- Go Out with a Smile
- Heart Is An Awesome Power: Although her main ability is to unravel her body into a string-like substance, she finds an incredibly diverse amount of ways to use this to her advantage.
- In Series Nick Name: JoJo.
- Instant Knots: Justified, as the strings she unravels into are prehensile.
- Kick Chick: She fights with her stand but she kicks a lot!
- Lovable Sex Maniac: Jolyne is the most perverted JoJo. Her first scene is of her complaining about a guard catching her masturbating.
- Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places: Which has lead her to relationships with some rather questionable men in the past - the most recent of which landed her in prison.
- Meaningful Name: In-universe, Stone Free is named after Jolyne's desire to escape jail, which she compares to a "stone ocean".
- Miss Swears-a-Lot: She even knows how to flip people off in four different languages!
- Morality Chain: Pretty much the only reason Anasui is trying to be something resembling good.
- Ms. Fanservice
- Multicolored Hair: Considering the crowd she fell in with, it could actually be dyed.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Weather Report was winning against Pucci until she distracted him.
- Perpetual Frowner: In the Blood
- The Smurfette Principle: The only female JoJo so far.
- Spell My Name with an S: She signs her name "Jolyne Cujoh", but the English speaking fandom has kept the romanization of her name identical to Jotaro's.
- Took a Level in Badass: Went into prison a flighty, love-starved delinquent and came out as a quick-thinking Badass Determinator who pulls stunts like setting herself on fire to counteract an enemy Stand.
- Troubling Unchildhood Behavior: How many fourteen-year-olds do you know that have committed grand theft auto?
- You Shall Not Pass: Gives her life to hold off Pucci just long enough for Emporio get to safety.
Jotaro Kujo (Stand: Star Platinum: The World)
See part 3
Hermes Costello (Stand: Kiss)
A fellow inmate of Jolyne's, both before and after the transfer to Green Dolphin Street. While she claims to have gotten into jail for holding up a convenience store, it was a deliberate gambit so she could get close to the gangster Sports Max and kill him in revenge for the death of her sister Gloria, who was killed for accidentally witnessing his criminal operations
Her Stand is Kiss, which allows her to duplicate any object by applying a special sticker to it. Once she removes the sticker the two objects will recombine into one, but not without some damage.
Her name references the luxury brand Hermès
and the fashion designer Paul Costelloe
, while her stand is named after KISS
- Anyone Can Die
- Dreadlock Rasta
- Fatal Flaw: Makes risky, impulsive decisions that tend to go bad for her more often than not.
- Good Scars: Has two - one on her forehead and another on her chin.
- Heart Is An Awesome Power: In classic JoJo fashion. The gambits she puts together with Kiss's stickers are incredibly clever and can be so complex that the reader may have trouble keeping up.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Yes, you got your revenge. Unfortunately, killing him had the not-so-minor side effect of putting his Stand into overdrive...
- Treasure Chest Cavity: Had her breasts surgically altered so that she could smuggle money into prison.
- You Killed My Sister: Sports Max killed her elder sister because she witnessed him performing a mob hit. Hermes got herself imprisoned at Green Dolphin on purpose, just to have a shot at killing him while he was serving time for racketeering.
Emporio Alnino (Stand: Burning Down the House/Weather Report)
A little boy who was born within Green Dolphin Street's walls. He has complex knowledge on the prison's layout due to a life of constantly sneaking around it.
His Stand Burning Down the House forms a pocket dimension that emulates the "ghost" of the prison's music room before it was destroyed in a blaze. He later gains use of Weather Report
His is named after the Emporio Armani
fashion label while his stand is named after "Burning Down the House"
by Talking Heads.
- Bigger on the Inside: Burning Down the House is pretty similar to the last part's Mr. President, being an extradimensional space that emulates Green Dolphin's music room as it was before fire destroyed it.
- Break the Cutie: His mom was a prisoner and he's been hiding in a prison his whole life, so he's pretty broken by the time the series starts.
- Creepy Child: Thanks to his stand ability to live in the "memories" of places, can appear in random corners of Stone Ocean.
- Eleventh Hour Superpower: Tricked Pucci into pushing Weather Report's Stand disc into him, thus giving him access to Heavy Weather.
- Final Girl, er, Boy: Emporio is the only character to survive Pucci's plot. Granted that destroying Made in Heaven restores the slain heroes in slightly altered form, but...
- Meaningful Name: Burning Down the House manifests rooms that were, well, burned down.
- Emporio is the old word for warehouse.
- Took a Level in Badass: He gains Weather Report as a stand, and is basically the one to kill Enrico Pucci
- Wise Beyond Their Years
F.F. (Stand: Foo Fighters)
A colony of zooplankton that gained a Stand when Pucci threw a Stand disc into the ocean. Its Stand is Foo Fighters, but the Stand and the user can't be considered separate entities in any sense of the phrase; even Foo Fighters' ability simply amounts to manipulating the plankton it's made from (although, as with any other stand, the applications are diverse
). After its defeat and befriending by Jolyne
, it decides to possess the corpse of a female prisoner named Etro.
She is named after the alternative rock band Foo Fighters
- Anime Hair: It's way too smooth to actually look like hair. It's more like someone stuck half a broken eggshell on her head.
- Arm Cannon: Can morph her index finger and thumb into a gun.
- Badass Adorable
- Berserk Button: Do not drink her water. Do not take her water away from her. Do not even sit next to her water.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Skirts it a bit due to her lack of worldly experience.
- Combat Medic
- Good Thing You Can Heal: Due to her nature, Foo Fighters can recover from pretty much any injury as long as a piece of her is able to get to a water source. Also, like GioGio's ability, she can use some of her plankton to patch up the others when they get hurt, but the process is very uncomfortable.
- Heel Face Turn/Defeat Means Friendship
- Heroic Sacrifice: Expends the last of her already depleted plankton to save Anasui.
- Humanity Is Infectious
Ever since she met Jolyne Cujoh at the farmlands... she has remembered everything she's experienced since then. The weird graffiti on the public phones. The feeling of the covers on the bead and the smell of garbage. The sound of doors opening and closing. The sound of the toilet... Making small talk with Jolyne. Jolyne making fun of her toes, saying they were shaped weird... She remembers everything... But everything before the incident at the farmlands... Just blindly obeying orders, not even knowing why. She just protected Whitesnake's disc. That's all she remembers.
- Imagination Based Power: Her plankton can morph into almost anything, really.
- Puppeteer Parasite/The Worm that Walks: Of a sort: Foo Fighters is an independently intelligent Stand created by a colony of plankton, animating the body of a dead woman.
- Serial Escalation: Once could probably accept hawks and dogs and even tortoises getting stand powers. But plankton?!
- Weak Sauce Weakness: Because she's a corpse filled with plankton, Foo Fighters has to be constantly hydrated.
- Weaponized Teleportation: F.F. can travel through bodies of water almost instantaneously. She uses this offensively by dragging opponents along for the ride, drowning them in the process.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Heavily averted after F.F. is defeated and joins Jolyne's side.
- Younger Than They Look: Is only several years old.
"Weather Report"/Wes Bluemarine (Stand: Weather Report)
A male prisoner. His memory disc was stolen by Pucci, and since he can't even remember his name, he simply goes by that of his weather-manipulating Stand, Weather Report. Weather Report has a secondary ability called Heavy Weather which can manipulate sunlight via the ozone layer to produce rainbows that turn anyone who touches them into a snail, which propagates as The Virus
. His actual identity is Wes Bluemarine, also known as Domenico Pucci, the younger twin brother of Enrico Pucci
He is named after the fashion brand Blumarine
. His stands are named after the jazz group Weather Report
and Heavy Weather, one of the band's albums
- Amnesiac Dissonance: Normally he's stoic, soft-spoken, and basically a good person. When he gets his memory back he sneeringly kills a doctor for no reason and goes on to be a plain asshole.
- Amnesiac Hero
- Baleful Polymorph: Heavy Weather, which turns living things into snails.
- Bright Is Not Good: Baleful Polymorph rainbows!
- Brother-Sister Incest: An unwitting variety, what with the whole Switched at Birth problem. Enrico's reaction to this sets in motion the events that will lead to him being fully under Dio's influence...
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Apparently how Heavy Weather works. Observers start thinking they're snails on a subconscious level, so they start actually turning into snails.
- Death Seeker: Although he becomes just as omnivengeful after regaining his memory as before losing it, Weather quickly decides it's better for the world if he and his Stand are dead. He just needs to make sure it's meaningful by taking Enrico with him. Doesn't quite work...
- Hand Wave: Heavy Weather manipulates the ozone to cause light to refract oddly, making observers subliminally think they are snails, which causes them to actually become snails. Araki handwaves this nonsense application of weather control by pointing out that meteorology only extrapolates from past events and still can't predict the weather—there could be crazy things like snail transfiguration that we simply haven't observed yet.
- In-Series Nickname: He was apparently known as Weather in high school.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Courtesy of Enrico using Whitesnake to extract his memory-disc, Weather has absolutely no recollection of his time before he appeared in the Green Dolphin Prison. Considering what happens after he gets his memory back, that's a good thing.
- Nice Hat
- No Sense of Personal Space: Tends to lean in very closely when he's speaking.
- Older Than They Look: Turns out to be thirty-nine, just like his twin brother Pucci.
- Personality Powers: Heavy Weather is a manifestation of his misanthropy.
- Power Incontinence: Weather Report never really had the best of control over Heavy Weather, which is part of why Enrico took his memories in the first place.
- Power Limiter: His amnesia keeps him from gaining full access to his powers. Once the memories come back, everything goes to hell.
- Power Of The Storm: Weather Report, natch. Then again, not many people have ever weaponized raining frogs before...
- The Quiet One
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: When the goons Pucci hired went farther than planned (he didn't know they were KKK) and raped and drove to suicide his sister, Weather came to desire revenge against the entire world, in the process awakening his Stand. In Heavy Weather mode. When Donatello restores Weather's memory, we're back to Heavy Weather.
- Superpowered Evil Side
- Switched at Birth: A mother whose own child was stillborn stole him, and made him think she was his biological mother—in the process leaving his fraternal twin Enrico Pucci without his brother. And, more importantly, left their younger sister without the knowledge that she had more than one brother...
- Walking Spoiler
Narciso Anasui (Stand: Diver Down)
A crossdressing male prisoner convicted of murdering his girlfriend and her lover. Despite Emporio's claims that he would never help anyone for any reason, he decides to help with Jolyne's quest after falling in love with her at first sight. His Stand, Diver Down, can dive into objects and jump back out or tamper with their inner workings.
He is named after the fashion designers Narciso Rodriguez
and Anna Sui
. His stand is named after the Van Halen
album Diver Down
Enrico Pucci (Stand: Whitesnake/C-Moon/Made in Heavennote )
A Catholic priest and possibly the disciple who was dearest to Dio. Pucci aims to attain Dio's idea of heaven, which leads to him engineering the framing of Jolyne so that Jotaro will come visit her in jail. This gives Pucci the opportunity to steal the memories of Jotaro, the only person who read Dio's personal notes before destroying them.
His stand, Whitesnake, allows him to steal a person's soul in the form of two discs: one for memories and one for a stand. These discs can be implanted in others, allowing Pucci to create stand-users from normal people. He can also implant orders using custom-made discs. His second stand, C-Moon, alters gravitational force so that an opponent will constantly "fall" away from Pucci and can turn things inside out by altering their centers of gravity. His third stand, Made in Heaven, can control gravitational force to the point of affecting relativity, speeding up time until the death and rebirth of the universe
He is named after the fashion designers Enrico Coveri
and Emilio Pucci
. His stands are named after the band Whitesnake
, the Wings song "C Moon", and either the Led Zeppelin song "Stairway to Heaven" or the Freddie Mercury song "Made in Heaven".
- Ambiguously Brown: As it turns out, he's half-black, half-white.
- Badass Priest
- Big Bad: Of Stone Ocean.
- Exotic Eye Designs: His eyes have crosses over them in early appearances. Later on he is Pie-Eyed.
- Eye Scream: Twice.
- The Fatalist: Pucci buys into the idea that everything that happens is destined to happen, which also leads him to believe...
- Utopia Justifies the Means: His ultimate plan is to accelerate time to the point where it loops back through a singularity—without the Joestar bloodline following—so everyone is subconsciously aware of what will happen in the entire future. End result: shock and horror are utterly erased, along with anything else related to surprise.
- Freudian Excuse: After seeing the sheer number of coincidences, simple mistakes, and decisions that snowballed into tragedy in his back story, it's easy to see how his beliefs became easily swayed by Dio to turn towards Predestination and become a Knight Templar in his search for "Heaven".
- Fusion Dance: C-Moon is the combination of Whitesnake and the green baby.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: He's a priest. Who succeeds in killing the whole cast save Emporio, and while not succeeding in remaking the universe in his image, regardless is singlehandedly responsible for retconning the JoJo continuity!
- Gravity Master: The effect of C-Moon, which can both alter gravity so that everything falls away from Pucci and use gravity to completely invert anything it touches.
- Ironic Echo: The way Pucci manages to kill Jotaro during the final fight. Just like Dio, Pucci doesn't hesitate to play dirty when he has to...
- Knight Templar: To quote Weather Report on Pucci, "The kind of evil that doesn't realize that it's evil...is the worst kind there is."
- Mundane Utility: At one point, he uses Whitesnake to put an ordinary music CD in Guccio, turning the latter into a human loudspeaker.
- Older Than They Look: Similarly to Jotaro, Pucci appears to have aged very little from his tutelage under Dio twenty-three years before.
- Orwellian Retcon: His third Stand, named Stairway to Heaven while the manga was running in Jump, was renamed Made in Heaven when the chapters were compiled into trade paperbacks. This is popularly believed to be because the latter's song lyrics fit Pucci's motivations better.
- Personality Powers: Whitesnake's ability comes from Pucci's desire to preserve the memories of his dead sister.
- Powers as Programs: Whitesnake can extract Stands and memories as disc-like objects. These can be placed in other people to give them those powers and memories.
- Ret Gone: Made in Heaven would have done this to his victims from Weather Report onwards. That would be including Jotaro, Jolyne, Hermes, and Anasui. After Emporio kills him, though, the resulting reality can be interpreted as that plot failing to the point that Pucci has been hit with Ret Gone.
- Sadistic Choice: His favorite means of escape, it seems, is to point out that someone else is about to die when he's cornered—so will you waste time killing Pucci, or save your friend? For a specific example, Pucci puts Jotaro before a nasty one: saving Jolyne from a Flechette Storm or killing Pucci. Jotaro tries to take both options but ultimately fails and is killed by Pucci.
- Scary Black Man: Scary Italian, African American Catholic Priest anyway, especially when he gets the Ret Gone ability
- Sinister Minister: Sinister priest, anyway. Of course, it's not going to be easy convincing him that following Dio's scheme is not God's will in any shape or form...
- Story Breaker Power: Made in Heaven lets Pucci gradually speed up time to the point of entire days passing in seconds with only Pucci being able to keep up, effectively giving him escalating super speed. He kills Annasui, Jotaro, Hermes, and Jolyne easily. Arrogance is really the only reason he loses to Emporio.
- Unusual Eyebrows: They kind of...make these little lines that go up then join into the rest of his hair after a 90-degree turn.
Guess (Stand: Goo Goo Dolls)
Jolyne's cellmate. Somewhat off-kilter. The Stand arrow grants her Goo Goo Dolls, which allows her to shrink anyone.
She is named after the clothing brand Guess
, while her stand is named after rock band the Goo Goo Dolls
Jongalli A. (Stand: Manhattan Transfer)
An expert sniper and an old disciple of Dio's. The body that Jolyne and Romeo crashed into was actually already dead, and was one of Jongalli's targets. He attempts to kill Jotaro and Jolyne as revenge for Dio's death. His Stand, Manhattan Transfer, reads air movements and helps guide his bullets, making him an extremely effective sniper despite his blindness.
He is named after the fashion designer John Galliano
, while his stand is named after music group the Manhattan Transfer
Xander McQueen (Stand: Highway to Hell)
A prisoner working as a janitor. His Stand Highway to Hell will reflect any damage to himself onto anyone nearby if he attempts suicide.
He is named after the fashion designer Alexander McQueen
, while his stand is named after the AC/DC
album Highway to Hell
- Death Seeker: But see below...
- Personality Powers: Invoked in-universe. Recognizing how utterly pathetic and despicable he was, Pucci granted him Highway to Hell hoping he'd kill himself and someone else.
- Taking You with Me: His Stand's modus operandi. Xander's suicidal, but he also feels compelled to drag someone with him so his suffering will be shared. His Stand's power? Reflect every injury he performs on himself onto a target. Even the lethal ones.
Mirashon (Stand: Marilyn Manson)
A female prisoner and thief who is desperate enough for parole to work for Pucci. Her Stand is Marilyn Manson, which will forcibly claim payment on a bet.
She is named after the fashion designer Mila Schön
, while her stand is named after the rock band Marilyn Manson
- Borrowed Catchphrase Shares the Darby brothers' "GOOD!".
- The Gambler
- Lost Him in a Card Game: Much nastier than with the D'Arby brothers. Basically, if you lose or forfeit (through cheating) a bet that Marilyn Manson is overseeing, it will instantly take away from you the value that you bet. If you don't have the money with you? It just starts taking things equivalent in value—ultimately including internal organs based on their going price on the black market.
- Personality Powers: Invoked in-universe in the exact same manner as Xander McQueen. Upon realizing that she's ballsy enough to try stealing a jeweled crucifix during her parole hearing, Pucci decides that she's perfectly compatible with Marilyn Manson.
- Red Baron: Marilyn Manson is one of the few stands to hold a badass title, in this case "Debt Collector".
Lang Wrangler (Stand: Jumpin' Jack Flash)
A male prisoner. His Stand, Jumpin' Jack Flash, allows him to inflict zero gravity on a target by spitting on them. The effect extends to anything the target touches, including air.
He is named after the fashion designer Helmut Lang
and the clothing brand Wrangler
, while his stand is named after The Rolling Stones
song "Jumpin' Jack Flash
- Explosive Decompression: Averted. Although Jumpin' Jack Flash generates a near-total vacuum like in space, Jolyne and Weather aren't in danger of rupturing. The real problem is the possibility of their blood boiling away...
- Eye Scream: Almost loses an eye when Jolyne pulls him into the vacuum.
- Required Secondary Powers: Acquiring Jumpin' Jack Flash also caused his fingertips and toes to grow suction cups so he could cling to walls in zero gravity.
- The Starscream: He has thoughts of acting this way towards Pucci when it looks like his Stand really is going to kill Jolyne and Weather.
Sports Max (Stand: Limp Bizkit)
A gangster who killed Hermes's sister. His Stand is Limp Bizkit, which can revive dead animals as invisible zombies.
He is named after the fashion brand Sportmax
, while his stand is named after the Nu Metal
band Limp Bizkit
Viviano Westwood (Stand: Planet Waves)
One of the guards assigned to the solitary confinement portion of Green Dolphin. He attacks Jolyne when he falls under Survivor's influence.
- Death from Above: Planet Waves can summon meteoroids from outer space toward Westwood, which will harm an opponent if he can put them between himself and the meteoroid. Unfortunately, as Jolyne found out, it's impossible to try the same tactic on him, since they will simply disintegrate before they hit him.
- Drunk with Power
- The Guards Must Be Crazy: Viviano, it's really not a good idea to release all the maximum security prisoners from their cells just because you want to fight them to death. Justified due to Survivor's effects making him an Ax Crazy Blood Knight.
- Police Brutality: Thanks to Survivor's effects. Although there were signs he had a sadistic streak from the start.
Kenzo (Stand: Dragon's Dream)
An expert practitioner of kenpo kept in solitary confinement. His specialty is manipulating people's bodies with his martial arts so they will die of drowning. His Stand, Dragon's Dream, tells him the best angle of attack based on a discipline known as "fengshui assassination".
D&G (Stand: Yo-Yo-Ma)
- Bodyguard Betrayal: Yo-Yo-Ma uses this as its modus operandi. It all but falls over itself to help you out of pickles, but it's really trying to make you lower your guard so it can find a way to get the anti-human-flesh enzyme it exudes on you.
- Dirty Cop: Before he was arrested, anyway.
- For the Evulz: Once he became convinced that Nostradamus really had foretold the world's end in 1999, he exchanged his dutiful police officer personality for one of "homicidal maniac". Why bother with holding your impulses in if even the universe isn't going to live long enough to punish you?
- Nigh Invulnerable: Like Yellow Temperance, nothing hurts Yo-Yo-Ma. Although in this case, it's just because it's that tough. Only killing D&G will dispatch it.
Guccio (Stand: Survivor)
A prisoner sent by Pucci to cause a brawl that would kill Jolyne. His Stand is Survivor, which uses a weak electrical impulse to increase the aggression of anyone nearby, causing them to fight for no reason.
- Blood Knight: Survivor turns its targets into this, convincing them of "the beauty of fighting".
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: Once Anasui realized not only that Guccio was an agent of Pucci, but that another such agent—specifically, D&G—was nearby, he arranged for Diver Down to activate its power. On Guccio's ribs. In such a way that D&G's own arm was horrifically mangled.
- Let's You and Him Fight: Survivor incites this.
- Personality Powers: It's not made explicit whether Pucci invoked this trope like he did with Mirashon and McQueen, but even while he was a Muggle fights tended to break out around him.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: While many Stand powers might look useless at first, their users' ingenuity tends to put that idea to rest. However, as far as Dio was concerned, Survivor just wasn't good for any active purpose, since its effect was uncontrollable and not easily manipulable—make people fight each other if they have animosity, relay their weak points to each other...that's it. Now compare that with weak-in-the-description/DEVASTATING-in-practice Stands like Sticky Fingers and Bohemian Rhapsody...
Miuccia "Miumiu" Mueller (Stand: Jail House Lock)
At first, Miumiu looks like another female inmate. She's actually the prison's head of security.
Her Stand, Jail House Lock, renders its targets unable to remember more than three things at a time.
- Four is Death: Since Jail House Lock's victims can only remember three recent things at a time, her most reliable way for dispatching them is to shoot four bullets at a time at them. This way, even if they notice how the first three bullets are flying and come up with a way to avoid them, they'll completely forget about the first bullet when the fourth bullet shows up. Jolyne gets around this by concentrating on a puddle of water under the bullets' flight path, letting her register them not as separate projectiles, but a single pattern.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Your short-term memory pretty much ceases to exist once Jail House Lock gets its hands on you.
- Spell My Name with an S: The song is named "Jail House Rock", but her arc in the manga is named "Jail House Lock" (in English), so most fans use the latter.
Ungaro (Stand: Bohemian Rhapsody)
One of the four sons of Dio. Nasty
-tempered drug addict. His Stand, Bohemian Rhapsody, evokes stories right onto people who like them. This is worse than it sounds...much
- Gonk: Add in the fact that he's a paradigm junkie, and you can guess how low his Pleasantness Quotient is...
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Weather defeats Bohemian Rhapsody by telling a story of a superhero-like being who rounds up wayward story characters (i.e. the entities created and/or transformed by the Stand) and forces them back into their stories of origin. Ungaro's horror and disbelief at Bohemian Rhapsody being made to negate itself makes him regress into a vegetative state. (We should be thankful that he didn't think to just reactivate his Stand...Then again, given that Weather could just tell his story again...)
- Shout Out: Creates these in droves. Given what his Stand ability does, this should come as no surprise. Even if we don't see the majority of the characters.
- The Unfought: He never actually meets the heroes; he only interacts with Pucci, who helps make him aware of his Stand. He spends all of his post-hospital screen time on board an airplane, glutting himself on fine food and drink while Bohemian Rhapsody's creations run roughshod over the world.
- You Can't Fight Fate: This is why the story evocation is so devastating. You'll be cast into the role you most identify with, and no matter what you do, everything that befell the character in the original story will befall you. Meaning that if the character in question died, so will you.
Rykiel (Stand: Sky High)
One of the four sons of Dio. Not the most self-confident of people, and arguably only assisting Pucci out of gratitude.
Donatello Versace (Stand: Underworld)
One of the four sons of Dio, and the most like him in mentality. His stand is Underworld, which allows him to read and animate "memories" in the ground. He uses this ability to trick Jolyne and Hermes into entering the memory of a plane crash from 2005 and to retrieve Weather Report's memory disc from a memory of Pucci
- It Is Pronounced Tro-PAY: It's actually pronounced "Versus", not "Vehr-sah-chee" like the designer brand.
- Sadistic Choice: When Emporio finds out a weakness in the plane crash death trap—that there were two survivors, meaning their seats should be safe—Versace makes three real Littlest Cancer Patients drop into those seats so that Jolyne and Hermes must kill them to save themselves. Hermes gets around this by making doubles of the original survivors and hiding the children inside one and herself inside the other. Jolyne, meanwhile, completely unravels into string and hides in Hermes's throat.
- Shout Out: His backstory is almost identical to that of Stanley from Holes—a famous athlete's shoes, intended as a donation to impoverished children, are stolen by a thief. The thief has a change of heart and, overcome with guilt, drops them from the roof of a building, causing them to fall from the sky and hit Versace, who is quickly arrested for theft. When Versace tells the judge exactly what happened—that they just fell from the sky—the judge snaps at the unbelievable truth and sends him to juvenile hall. The only difference between Versace and Stanley in this respect is that Versace's prison is much worse.
- The Starscream: As far as Versace's concerned, he's the one most deserving of being the one in control of Dio's planned "heaven", not a mere confidant. He intentionally restores Weather's memory just to try to ensure that Pucci will get wiped out.
- You Can't Fight Fate: A less devastating version than Bohemian Rhapsody, but still irksome. You can't get out of or alter one of Underworld's unearthed memories until it finishes, so you'd better find some way to circumvent whatever bad things Versace has in mind for you that the memory won't interdict.
