One-Shot Characters | Spinoff Characters
- Action Girl: The most prominent examples of the series, in the form of the JoJo of this part and two of her earliest allies. They get far more far fights compared to previous Action Girls of the series.
- Anyone Can Die: The most tragic example of the whole series. All of them sans Emporio are killed by Pucci's hand, with F.F. being burnt alive with scalding water, Weather being stabbed through the heart, and the rest being bludgeoned by Made In Heaven during the universe reset.
- Dysfunction Junction: A horny delinquent with father issues, said father being forced to stay away from her and his wife for the greater good, an impulsive woman who got herself into prison to avenge her sister's death via witness, a boy who lived his whole life in a prison, a colony of plankton given sentience inhabiting a human corpse, an amnesiac who unknowingly had an relationship with his sister that ended in tragedy, and a murderer who follows them out of deluded love for Jolyne.
- Gender-Equal Ensemble: Jolyne, Ermes, and F.F. to Emporio, Weather Report, and Anasui. Though, this depends on whether you actually count F.F. as female due to their Ambiguous Gender, or add Jotaro, who spends most of the part in a coma before joining as an 11th-Hour Ranger, to the male side.
Jolyne Cujoh (Stand: Stone Free)
Voiced by: Fairouz Ai (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Kira Buckland (TV anime EN), Miyuki Sawashiro (All-Star Battle, Eyes of Heaven)
Jolyne is the daughter of Jotaro Kujo. After being arrested for a crime she didn't commit, Jolyne is incarcerated in Green Dolphin Street Prison. 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 strings. This has various applications, including hearing distant sounds similar to a tin can phone, manipulating objects by wrapping them up and pulling the strings around, and whatever else she can think of.
She is named after the Dolly Parton song "Jolene", while her Stand is named after the Jimi Hendrix song "Stone Free".
- Action Girl: She has shown to be capable of defending herself without her Stand, seen in full detail against Officer Westwood. She has extensive knowledge of self-defense, which she demonstrates throughout the series, notably against Pucci.
- Ambiguously Bi: Expresses envy at the fact that snails don't have to take gender into account when looking for sexual partners, implying she's had problems with Incompatible Orientation in the past.
- Ambiguous Situation: She may or may not be incredibly intelligent, to savant levels, judging by some of the things she does requiring either amazing luck or a superhuman ability to calculate trajectories and probabilities while fighting, according to her enemies. Most people put it down to luck, but a recurring element is the fact that she's the opposite of Pucci, who literally seems to have either divine intervention or probability manipulation on his side, and thus is unlikely to have coincidence work out for her.
- Animal Motifs: Butterflies, and judging by the spider-web patterns on her clothes and the forms her strings take, spiders. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven even gives her the same clothing motif when she's a child.
- Anime Hair: Possesses the most unique hairstyle out of all of the JoJos, having multicolored hair, Braids of Action, and Odango all into one.
- Anyone Can Die: Even for a JoJo, she still dies at the end of the story.
- Arachnid Appearance and Attire: All of her outfits throughout the Part feature spiderweb-like printing on them. This ties into her thread powers like how spiders shoot webs, and being the first female JoJo, as female arachnids are often more deadly than the males of their species.
- Badass Biker: She joined a biker gang when she was a teenager, and she is definitely badass.
- Badass Boast:Jolyne: Good freakin' grief, Gwess. Shut up, and listen. You said everything has a name, didn't you? Then, I'll name my ability, too. It'll be Stone Free. 'Cause, somehow, I'm gonna free myself from this stone ocean. Did you hear me? STONE FREE! That's the name!
- Badass Family: She's the daughter of Jotaro, great-granddaughter of Joseph, and great-great-great-granddaughter of Jonathan. Need we say more?
- Badass Longcoat: Her prison coat after Jotaro's Stand was stolen.
- Bare Your Midriff: Not a single outfit she's shown in her part has her wear anything that can cover her navel. Not even her alternate counterpart's.
- Berserk Button:
- Initially, the mere thought of Jotaro was this.
- Don't call her JoJo if you're not her mom.
- Birthmark of Destiny: Like all the Joestars, Jolyne has a small star-shaped birthmark on the rear of her left shoulder, close to her neck.
- Breaking Old Trends: Jolyne is the first Joestar protagonist in the series to be a girl.
- 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 that she stole a car when she fourteen, joined a biker gang, and became pretty bitter. When she became an 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 a badass like all of her family to get her father back and kick all her enemies' butts in the process.
- Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: Butterflies are a motif in her character design, with a butterfly tattoo on her left forearm and butterfly emblem on her halter top. Her remains even turn into butterflies when she dies, and sure enough, she gets reborn in the new universe.
- Catchphrase: "Yare yare dawa," the feminine equivalent of her father's "Yare yare daze".
- Much like how her ancestor Jonathan Joestar set his fist on fire to defeat her family's archnemesis Dio Brando in 1888, Jolyne set herself on fire 123 years later to defeat an enemy Stand user; a son of DIO no less.
- Stone Free's power to unravel her into strings is reminiscent of Hierophant Green, a Stand possessed by her father's old friend, Noriaki Kakyoin. Its Cool Shades might remind readers of when Kakyoin himself wore sunglasses after his eyes were slashed up by N'Doul.
- Feeling like your father doesn't love you and going to hang out with your delinquent friends, only for them to hang you out to dry and leave you to end up in jail? Narancia Ghirga would know what that's like.
- Caught with Your Pants Down: In the first chapter, she gripes about being caught masturbating by the guards.
- Combat Medic: She's no slouch in a fight with Stone Free, compressing her string for a barrage of powerful punches, and she can also use her Stand to sew up wounds, even her own mid-battle if need be.
- Civvie Spandex: Her clothes seem to be inspired by this costume design — her Long Pants and her top share the same Spider-Man-like pattern and color-scheme, and she wears a loose long coat that resembles a cape. It wouldn't look out of place in the X-Men comics. Ironically, Jolyne is about as far from being a superhero as the series gets.
- Combat Pragmatist: It's a given in the JoJoverse, but out of almost all the JoJos in the series so far, she has the second most seemingly harmless ability, first being her grand-uncle Josuke Higashikata's Crazy Diamond. She uses her Stone Free to turn herself into ordinary string. The very fact that she can weaponize this, let alone to this extent, shows how clever and smart she can be.
- Combat Tentacles: She can use her prehensile string in a few ways combat tentacles are used, such as grappling onto things and throwing things around, but most of the other ways are completely different.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: While Giorno and Jolyne are both criminals with hearts of gold who start out underestimated by the villains, their similarities stop there. Giorno is elegant, polite, calm, and shows his altruism in his desire to overthrow the Boss, making him perhaps the most proactive protagonist in the franchise, but he shows an incredibly ruthless side to his personality, and is very driven towards his goal. In contrast, Jolyne is vulgar, rude, highly emotive, and is pretty much forced to fight for her survival first because of the Pucci's Evil Plan, but she doesn't like to kill her opponents, usually leaving them retired, and goes out of her way several times to help the people along the way to her goal. In essence, Giorno has the qualities of DIO with lesser versions of his viler characteristics, while Jolyne has the flaws of the Joestar line magnified but retains their core heroism.
- Jolyne knew her father, Jotaro, and despises him more than anything due to his absence and his apparent lack of affection towards her, and her relationship with him drives a good part of the plot of Stone Ocean as well as her character development. Meanwhile, Giorno never knew his father, DIO, one of the vilest villains to ever face the Joestars, but doesn't seem to hate him, as evidenced by the picture of him he keeps in his wallet, and him being his son doesn't come up again after his introduction.
- Their combat styles differ as well: Jolyne's biggest edges in combat are her creative use of her strings, coupled with her intuition, and her street smarts, while Giorno's are his ability to analyse his opponents' moves and the situation and his extensive knowledge of biology which he combines with his ability to create life.
- Cool Big Sis: Towards Emporio. He even addresses her as onee-san ("big sister").
- Cool Shades: Stone Free wears green-shaded glasses.
- Curb Stomp Cushion: While Pucci's victory against her once Heaven was achieved was inevitable, she manages to cut one of his eyes and buy enough time for Emporio to escape.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Wears dark colored clothing with spider and butterfly motifs and she is the heroine of Part 6.
- Delinquents: Must run in the family, but Jolyne is the latest in a long line of JoJos to get in trouble with the law. It was mentioned that she has a Freudian Excuse of her father Jotaro being absent for a long time.
- Deconstructed Character Archetype: Before major Character Development kicks in, Jolyne starts out with many of the Joestar family's traits... but twisted into extreme flaws. Her hotblooded and berserk-button prone personality constantly led her into trouble with authority. Her flighty and impulsive behavior led her to make some extremely bad decisions. The lack of a consistent father figure did not inspire her to become truly independent or find an honorable person to emulate, but just made her resentful of Jotaro for his apparent inability to care about his family. Her delinquency has landed her in juvenile hall and later in jail. And finally, her extreme faith in her delinquent friends left her to be hung out to dry when they abandoned her. After meeting with her father, however...
- Determinator: Her drive to rescue her father is what makes Pucci consider her a tough foe. So tough, in fact, that even when she was heavily injured fighting Stand user after Stand user while in the middle of escaping a maximum security prison, she still nearly wipes the floor with Pucci in their first real fight, and strongly makes him reconsider which JoJo he should have been afraid of from the start. She later sets herself on fire to defeat an enemy Stand user.
- Dub Name Change: English localizations, including the English dub of the anime, rename Stone Free into Stone Ocean.
- Eagleland: A mixture of type 1 and 2. Jolyne is the first American protagonist in the series and is very crass and aggressive, but she ultimately ends up being a heroic character.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: Of a sort. While Jolyne herself dies, in the new timeline that is established after Pucci is defeated, Irene's happily dating her boyfriend Annakiss, meets all her friends from the previous timeline and even has a better relationship with her dad.
- Another timeline created at the end of Eyes Of Heaven strongly implies that her father, who retains his memory of the game's events, will be around a lot more during her childhood. To the point where he lets her come along with him in what appears to be the beginning of Diamond is Unbreakable.
- Embarrassing Nickname: She hates being called "JoJo" unless it's her mom that's saying it.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Just like Joseph and Jotaro, she isn't a bad person by any means, but is still a crass delinquent; though, she feels guilt that her criminal behavior is making her mom cry and worry about her, and wants to hear her voice when she's incarcerated. Must run in the family, considering her father, a fellow delinquent, went to great lengths to protect his own mother.
- Everyone Has Standards: When meeting Pucci for the first time prior to discovering his identity as Whitesnake's user, she's hesitant on knocking a priest out and instead explains her request to reach the prison courtyard. She even felt guilt after blatantly lying when asked if anyone was with her.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: Her and her mom both have longer hair in one scene to indicate a flashback.
- Feel No Pain: Jolyne takes some of the hardest hits in the series without flinching, such as getting her hand literally turned inside out, bones jutting and flesh pulping and everything, or setting herself on fire.
- 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.
- Genius Bruiser: Played with. She's scrawnier than the JoJos that preceded her, but not only is she just as capable of outwitting her opponents, she's a much scrappier fighter to boot.
- Go Out with a Smile: Dies smiling in order to not only protect, but to comfort Emporio to the very end.
- Going Commando: She forgot to wear her panties once.
- 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.
- 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.
- Another aspect of this is that she is one of the few main characters who has to channel her Stand ability through her body, essentially giving her all the powers instead of her Stand. While this means that she can't use her floaty ghost partner to do all the heavy lifting, it does mean that said floaty ghost partner has both hands free to wreck shit up while Jolyne is busy with her strings. And Stone Free is quite the badass, even with only brute force.
- The Hero: Acts as this for most of the Part until her death, at which point Emporio takes her place.
- The Hero Dies: Bites the dust trying to save Emporio and making a Last Stand against Pucci.
- Heroic Lineage: Jolyne's personality is very similar to her great-grandfather Joseph — very excitable, hot-headed, and snarky. Her kinder moments also bring his own to mind (her revival of F.F. by wringing out her wet cloak on top of its remains is highly reminiscent of Joseph's pouring blood over a dying Wamuu to ease his pain, for instance). In a crisis situation, she's more like Jotaro — cold-blooded and willing to throw herself into danger without hesitation if need be. Her tactics are similar to both Joseph's and her father's — she's extremely quick-thinking and favors misdirection and mindgames like Joseph. She is also fond of lateral thinking like Jotaro, taking the most efficient and often unexpected route in a fight. She also has the recurring "conscience/spirit" resulting from character development that Josuke and Giorno were explicitly referred to as developing.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Bites the dust trying to save Emporio and making a Last Stand against Pucci.
- Hollywood Genetics: Jolyne's hair is a mixture of black and blonde, even though her father's hair is black and her mother's hair is brown. Fixed in the anime, where her mother's hair color is changed to blonde.
- I Just Want to Be Loved: Love, whether it be platonic, familial, or romantic, is what defines Jolyne's motivations, and determines whether or not she grows to be on good terms with somebody. For example, the care for her shown by Emporio, F.F., and Weather Report allows her to trust them to the bitter end, even if some had a rocky history with her, and when romantic love is shown to be mutual, like between her and Romeo (at first), she's shown to be incredibly playful, cheery, and loyal. Conversely, if a friendship or romance is shown to be one-sided and possessive, like with Gwess or Anasui, or if the love is shown to be cold and not well-conveyed, like with Jotaro, she's very much not willing to trust said people, and even hate them if push comes to shove.
- Insanely International Ancestry: Jolyne is Japanese-British-Italian-American.
- In-Series Nickname: JoJo by her mother. Then again, she's far from the first to have that nickname.
- Instant Knots: Justified, as the strings she unravels into are prehensile.
- Invisible to Normals: Her Stand power partially averts this. While Stone Free is invisible like all Stands, the strings Jolyne creates are created from her body, and therefore visible to anyone.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Must run in the family, again; she's a crass, rude female thug, yet she ultimately has a good heart.
- Kick Chick: She fights with her Stand, but she kicks a lot. She's even been shown to take on the likes of police officers in hand-to-hand combat without using her Stand.
- Knows the Ropes: She takes the rope tricks used by Joseph, Kakyoin and the like and turns them Up to Eleven. How? She can unravel herself into string and use its properties instead of merely using it to influence her surroundings.
- Lady Swears-a-Lot: She even knows how to flip people off in four different languages! Fittingly, she drops the first "f-bomb" of the English dub.
- The Lad-ette: She's the rudest, crudest, horniest JoJo of them all.
- Lovable Sex Maniac:
- Jolyne is one of the most perverted JoJo's on par with her great-grandfather Joseph. Her first scene is of her complaining about a guard catching her masturbating.
- Jolyne is jealous of snails for rather eyebrow-raising reasons◊: they don't have to worry about gender.
- Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places: She had relationships with some rather questionable men in the past — the most recent of which landed her in prison, such as Romeo. Who will later regret that.
- Master of Threads: Jolyne Cujoh's Stand, Stone Free, allows her to turn her body into strings for a multitude of different uses. She can also use it for healing by literally stitching people up.
- Meaningful Name: In-Universe, Stone Free is named after Jolyne's desire to escape jail, which she compares to a "stone ocean".
- Morality Chain: Pretty much the only reason Anasui is trying to be something resembling good.
- Ms. Fanservice: Pretty face, curvy figure, and almost always has her stomach uncovered (complete with a navel piercing later on). Also, see She Cleans Up Nicely below.
- One of the manga covers has her covered in cuffs◊. Look closely enough and you can see she doesn't wear anything under them.
- Naïve Newcomer: Her first days at Green Dolphin Street Prison were a harsh learning of the prison's spoken and unspoken rules.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Weather Report had Pucci dead to rights and almost succeeded in killing him. Unfortunately right before he was able to land the killing blow Jolyne and co crashed the middle of their fight with a car distracting Weather long enough for Pucci to kill him.
- Personality Powers: Stone Free represents Jolyne's drive to escape Green Dolphin Street Prison; with its powers of string transformation, doing so would be a piece of cake if the jail wasn't rife with other Stand users. Jolyne even names it that because of her desire to escape.
- Razor Floss: Her first offensive use of Stone Free's power is using her string to slice an ear off one of the prison guards assaulting Ermes.
- Revenge: Jolyne has a noticeable vindictive side, repaying those who've committed wrong against her, like when she used her new Stand to crash her crooked attorney's car for setting her up.
- Running Gag: She often forgets to wear her panties.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: She started doing poses during her cavity search. Not that her officers minded.
- Shared Family Quirks: Besides her father Jotaro, Jolyne takes the most heavily after her great-grandfather Joseph. She shares his brash troublemaker attitude and boisterousness, but also his heart of gold and scheming nature, and especially his penchant for rope-based trickery.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: For all of those who thought she looked too masculine in the original series, you might wanna see her◊ in◊ Spur Magazine's one-shot◊ where Araki Hirohiko's art development makes her absolutely gorgeous◊ to Ms. Fanservice levels.
- She's Got Legs: Often wears mini-skirts or leggings, or both, that show off her long and shapely legs.
- Signature Scent: For some reason, Stone Free always smells like soap.
- The Smurfette Principle: The only female JoJo protagonist in the series so far.
- Spell My Name with an "S": She signs her name "Jolyne Cujoh" and "CUJOH JOLYNE" appears in English text in the original Japanese manga, but most of the English-speaking fandom (and the French edition, for some reason) kept the romanization of her name identical to Jotaro's despite all evidence to the contrary.
- Statuesque Stunner: She's 175 cm tall (5 ft 9 inches), and extremely fit and attractive, not unlike her great-great-grandmother Lisa Lisa.
- Stealth Pun: In the anime, her leitmotif has a prominent strings section.
- Super Hearing: Stone Free's strings can extend into places where Jolyne can't physically get to and listen to faraway conversations like a tin-can telephone. She did this before she was even fully aware of her Stand and what it was.
- Super Toughness: Once her Stand's ability gets going, she starts turning to string. Her body is then resistant to stabbing and blunt-force trauma due to the string absorbing all that energy.
- Swiss-Army Superpower: Jolyne's used her Stand ability to unravel her body to extend herself, listen in on conversations using the vibrations of her string, capture people in a net, sew up wounds, weave it into clothes as a disguise, and tightly pack it for a destructive, fast punch.
- Tomboyish Voice: She has a pretty low voice, though it's not quite deep enough to qualify as a Contralto of Danger.
- Town Girls: The Neither to Ermes' Tomboy and F.F.'s Girly Girl.
- 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.
- Trash Talk: She is a former delinquent after all. In a fight Jolyne often taunts enemies, and has used this tactically with her street smarts to gain the upper hand.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: How many fourteen-year-olds do you know that have committed grand theft auto?
- Underestimating Badassery: Pucci first regarded her as little more than the bratty teenage daughter of the last roadblock preventing him from achieving Heaven. Instead, she became his most persistent enemy, and her indirect actions leads to his defeat.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Shares a hatred of alligators with Ermes after dealing with an invisible one in prison. She even throws something (a wedding ring Anasui was going to sneakingly give to her while she was asleep) at one at random.
- You Killed My Father: Sort of. Her goal of taking down Pucci is in the name of Jotaro, but he didn't exactly kill him. Whitesnake taking Jotaro's Stand and Memory discs are slowly killing him, but he's mostly rendered comatose while the Speedwagon Foundation places him on life support. Ultimately, though, aside from escaping Green Dolphin Street Prison, Jolyne's main goal is to kill Pucci and retrieve her father's discs to bring him back.
- 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)
Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (TV anime JP), Matthew Mercer (TV anime EN)
Jolyne's estranged father. Upon discovering that his daughter was framed for a crime she didn't commit, he makes it his mission to free Jolyne from Green Dolphin Street Prison.
Ermes Costello (Stand: Kiss)
Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Tiana Camacho (TV anime EN), Chizu Yonemoto (All-Star Battle, Eyes of Heaven)
A fellow inmate of Jolyne's, both before and after the transfer to Green Dolphin Street Prison. 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 Maxx 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 violently recombine into one, resulting in damage to the original.
Her name references the luxury brand Hermès and either the fashion designer Paul Costelloe or rock artist Elvis Costello, while her Stand is named after KISS.
- Adaptational Curves: She's considerably bustier in the anime than in any of her other appearances.
- An Arm and a Leg: She dies when Pucci cuts both of her arms off.
- And This Is for...: Her revenge against her Sports Maxx goes into this.Ermes: This kick was for Gloria. And this one is also for Gloria. And the next one is also for Gloria. And the next one. And the one after that. And the next one, and next one... They're all for Gloria!
- Bare Your Midriff: She's first introduced wearing a crop sweater.
- Big Sister Mentor: To the extent, though the aforementioned nickname mocks her for being rather masculine looking.
- Boobs of Steel: Deliberately. She had them operated on to store money while in prison.
- Cast from Hit Points: She can use Kiss to duplicate her own body parts (and by extension, Kiss') which allows for a lot of things like duplicating her arms to hold off an enemy or duplicating her nose to prevent suffocation. The only downside is that like with all other duplicates once the sticker comes off they combine violently and damage her.
- Contralto of Danger: Has the deepest voice of any woman in the franchise in All-Star Battle and Eyes of Heaven.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Both Bruno Bucciarati and Ermes ended up involving themselves in criminal activities out of a love for a relative (Bruno with his father, Ermes with her sister) and even managed to fight back toward those who harmed them, albeit under different circumstances. While Bucciarati is more an important player to the plot of Golden Wind, even more so than Giorno, here Ermes' is sidelined for half of the story after defeating Sports Maxx until her breakout from Green Dolphin Street Prison.
- Both Sticky Fingers and Kiss are powerful, close-range Stands with versatile abilities that allows a form of Detachment Combat for the users to prevail. Sticky Fingers' zippers allow for Bruno to unzip any object or man alike, while Kiss utilizes its stickers to duplicate items and have them violently combine back when removed.
- Deuteragonist: Serves as this over the course of half of Stone Ocean, as most of her scenes show her present with Jolyne, or aiding her in some way. She eventually drops out of this role completely after being critically injured from a battle with Sports Maxx. From here on out, the role switches to Anasui. Weather and Pucci also occasionally slips into this role.
- Dreadlock Rasta: Has shoulder length dreadlocks.
- Dub Name Change: Her Stand is renamed from Kiss to Smack. Weirdly enough, the anime design of the Stand still kept the name "KISS" written on its torso.
- Fatal Flaw: Impulsive to a fault, Ermes makes many decisions that go badly for her more often than not.
- Flight, Strength, Heart: Her Stand, Kiss, has excellent physical statsnote , but its main power of duplicating objects sounds rather weak compared to other Stands' more straightforward and offensive abilities. Like other Stand users, however, she gets around that by being really creative with it.
- Good Is Not Soft: Unlike Jolyne, who would spare Stand Users once they're defeated because she believes they won't pose a threat or aren't worth killing, Ermes won't hesitate to kill an enemy in the blink of an eye.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: She has two Good Scars — 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' stickers are incredibly clever and can be so complex that the reader may have trouble keeping up.
- Hot-Blooded: Definitely. But it's also her Fatal Flaw.
- Informed Ability: Araki gave Kiss an A in every stat except Precision (which got a C). If this is to be taken seriously, Ermes is more powerful than DIO, which definitely doesn't seem like the case in her actual appearances.
- The Lancer: To Jolyne. Ermes is the first of her allies to appear in the actual story, and fights alongside Jolyne the most out of the heroes.
- Lady Swears-a-Lot: A frequent offender in certain translations, especially in the anime's English dub.
- 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...
- Not Quite Flight: Uses her stickers on a harpoon (which the Speedwagon foundation launched into the Kennedy Space Center's visitor center) to get Jotaro and herself to Pucci's location.
- Put on a Bus: After the fight with Sports Maxx, Ermes ends up being put in the infirmary and doesn't get out until Jolyne decides to break out of Green Dolphin Street Prison. Ironically, she wasn't out for that long, at least four or so days, it's just that a lot happened in that time.
- Straight Man: She's arguably the most normal out of Jolyne's allies, which plays off of their weirdness.
- Spell My Name with an "S": For years, people used "Hermes" or "Hermès" as that was the name of the fashion label she was named after. JOJOVELLER and her S.A.S action figure corrected that.
- Spicy Latina: She's Mexican on her father's side, and just as Hot-Blooded as any Joestar. Taken Up to Eleven in the dub of the anime, where Ermes sprinkles Spanish phrases into her sentences every now and then.
- Tomboyish Voice: In All-Star Battle and Eyes of Heaven, her voice is quite deep.
- Town Girls: The Tomboy to Jolyne's Neither and F.F.'s Girly Girl.
- Treasure Chest Cavity: Had her breasts surgically altered so that she could smuggle money into prison.
- Vengeance Feels Empty: Inverted. Killing Sports Maxx made her feel great.
- Victoria's Secret Compartment: She had her breasts surgically altered to be able to smuggle money in them for bribing the prison guards.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: After dealing with an invisible alligator in prison, she and Jolyne come to despise them all in general.Ermes: They think they're so goddamned safe, just 'cause they're a protected species!
- You Killed My Father: Sports Maxx killed her elder sister because she witnessed him performing a mob hit. Ermes got herself imprisoned at Green Dolphin Street Prison on purpose, just to have a shot at killing him while he was serving time for racketeering.
Emporio Alniño (Stand: Burning Down the House)
Voiced by: Atsumi Tanezaki (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Casey Mongillo (TV anime EN), Junko Kitanishi (All-Star Battle, Eyes of Heaven)
A little boy who was born within Green Dolphin Street Prison'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, along with all the objects contained within, before it was destroyed in a blaze. He can also carry around these objects with him.
He is named after the Emporio Armani fashion label while his Stand is named after "Burning Down the House" by Talking Heads.
- 11th-Hour Superpower: He tricked Pucci into pushing Weather Report's Stand disc into him, thus giving him access to Heavy Weather. Ironically, he doesn't use Heavy Weather's unique ability that made it an 11th-Hour Superpower to Weather Report, instead opting for its most basic (albeit enhanced by lingering vestiges of Weather Report's sheer hatred as well as being in a small room) ability to generate oxygen.
- Adorably Precocious Child: Despite being only eleven years old, he is the one entrusted with the task of driving both a car and a helicopter.
- The Baby of the Bunch: Emporio is a preteen child accompanying a gang of prison inmates who are grown adults (and one sentient plankton colony possessing a woman's reanimated corpse).
- Bag of Holding: After leaving Green Dolphin Street Prison, this is how Emporio uses his Stand. By using a small bag that he carries inside his belt he can hold various items the group needs including a computer and Jotaro's Memory disc. The latter becomes very important in the final fight with Pucci as Emporio holds onto Weather Report's Stand and implants it into his own body to use against Pucci.
- Beware the Nice Ones: He's one of the kindest members of the team. He's also the one who kills Pucci.
- 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 Street Prison's music room as it was before fire destroyed it.
- Bland-Name Product: Emporio's baseball uniform in the manga has a red "C" with a blue outline on it, a reference to the Chicago Cubs logo. The logo on the anime's key design and trailers is instead a red "C" on a blue circle, which was censored in the final release, removing the "C". This was updated sometime in late December 2021, still resembling the Cubs logo but now using the initials "GD" and a picture of a dolphin to represent Green Dolphin Street Prison.
- 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. And that is not getting to the events of Stone Ocean itself... culminating in the deaths of all of his comrades and having to live with their Alternate Universe selves with the guilt of being the only one from the original universe.
- The Chew Toy: He goes through an incredible amount of pain and torture throughout the series. One of the most cringe-inducing is the part where he only remembers the last three things he learned after a certain point, so he repeatedly touches an electrified puddle of water, screaming and crying in agony. Each time, the only thing he remembers are the things he must do to help Jolyne, so he repeats the process again... and again... and again.
- Combo Platter Powers: He, along with DIO, is the only character to own two Stands. Additionally, he's the only character ever to use two Stands simultaneously — he fights Pucci in the hidey-hole he generates using Burning Down the House at the same time that he uses Weather Report to attack him with oxygen.
- Creepy Child: Thanks to his Stand ability to live in the "memories" of places, he can appear in random corners of Green Dolphin Street Prison.
- Determinator: The premier example in Stone Ocean. He will not stop trying to help his friends. Because of this, he's the only one to survive against and ultimately defeat Pucci.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He manages to defeat Pucci, who easily trounced everyone else in his way after awakening Made In Heaven, and by that point had become able to manipulate the universe itself, by trapping him inside a room and poisoning him to death.
- Dub Name Change: Of sorts. His Stand name is often shortened to just "Burning Down" in English localizations.
- Final Guy: Emporio is the only character to survive Pucci's plot. Granted, destroying Made In Heaven restores the slain heroes in slightly altered form, but...
- Foil: Ultimately one to Pucci in too many ways to list but most noticeably; Both were non-prisoners at Green Dolphin Street Prison, both had a friend they deeply cared about, were entrusted by that person to carry on if they fell with something, and avenged said friend after they fell in order to achieve a better world.
- Guile Hero: He has very few combative capabilities, so he usually hides from or outwits any enemies he faces.
- Had to Be Sharp: Was forced to wisen up due to growing up in a prison and being at the potential mercy of violent criminals and guards.
- Meaningful Name:
- Burning Down the House manifests the prison's music room that got, well, burned down.
- Emporio is the old word for warehouse, and he utilizes his Stand as storage Hammerspace.
- His last name, Alniño, is a portmanteau of Armani, a fashion brand, and El Niño, which Spanish for "The Boy", but also means a climate pattern that makes weather warmer than normal. His Stand is called Burning Down the House, and eventually gains use of Weather Report, and uses its abilities in conjunction with Burning Down the House to kill Pucci.
- Mission Control: Spends most of the arc in his Stand pocket dimension, providing Jolyne with information and advice on dealing with the prison and Stand Users. He's forced to take action himself after Jolyne dies saving him from Pucci.
- Nice Guy: While a bit odd and creepy, Emporio is unfailingly kind and loyal to Jolyne and the rest of the group (except perhaps Anasui).
- Poor Communication Kills: Because his warning to Jolyne is rather vague, and Jolyne is hoping her mother will be coming to see her, Jolyne doesn't heed his advice to stay out of the visitation room.
- Recurring Element: Like Hayato Kawajiri from Diamond is Unbreakable, he's a young boy with a Disappeared Dad who gets caught up in the Joestars' adventures and has to use his smarts to outwit his enemies, having little fighting ability of his own. Unlike Hayato, however, he has a Stand of his own and eventually gains a more powerful one that makes him able to fight and even defeat the Big Bad.
- Sole Survivor: He is the last man standing amongst the Stone Ocean crew, even outliving Jolyne and Jotaro.
- Superpowerful Genetics: While it was unknown whether or not Emporio's mother was an actual Stand User herself, she also was able to manipulate "ghost objects" exactly like he can.
- Survivor's Guilt: A rather unique case. This was initially played straight when Emporio became the Sole Survivor of the heroes, but this gets turned on its head when he receives the Weather Report Stand and musters up the courage to defeat Pucci once and for all. That said, this becomes a Double Subversion when he's placed in the new universe post-snapback, and sees that none of his friends are the same anymore, leaving Emporio to bear the guilt of being the only hero left unchanged.
- Taking You with Me: Seems implied in his final stand against Pucci since Weather Report poison air seems to be affecting him too. He manages to live since the universe being remade saves him at the last second. Well that and Pucci is being pummeled by Weather Report.
- Took a Level in Badass: He gains Weather Report as a Stand and is basically the one to kill Enrico Pucci.
- What Were You Thinking?: He calls Jolyne out on making a phone call to the Speedwagon Foundation and mentioning Jotaro's Stand disc over the phone, noting that their enemies are likely listening in. He ends up being right when Pucci listens to the recording.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: Due to growing up in prison raised only by his mother, a library, and the internet.
F.F. (Stand: Foo Fighters)
Voiced by: Mariya Ise (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Brittany Lauda (TV anime EN), Ryoko Shiraishi (All-Star Battle, Eyes of Heaven),
A colony of zooplankton that gained consciousness and the Stand, Foo Fighters, when Pucci threw its disc into a lake.
The line between Stand and user is rather blurry, and Foo Fighters' ability simply amounts to manipulating the plankton into various configurations (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 Atroe.
She is named after the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.
- Ambiguous Gender: Well, F.F. originally has No Biological Sex, so it makes sense. While F.F.'s body is female, their behavior isn't especially masculine or feminine, and while they use the feminine pronoun "atashi" (most likely emulating Jolyne), their speech patterns are rather masculine. Some translations, such as the Netflix subtitles, use "she/her" pronouns for F.F., while the English dub uses "they/them" (which can be seen as either a gender-neutral singular pronoun, or as referring to F.F.'s biology literally being composed of millions of individual planktons). It's also worth mentioning that the JOJOVELLER art books lists F.F.'s gender as "female(?)".
- 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: A colony of plankton possessing the corpse of a Shrinking Violet, F.F. herself is also quite the Cloudcuckoolander.
- Because You Were Nice to Me: After Jolyne tricks her into chasing the tractor that had Pucci's discs, she steps into the more porous field and is left at Ermes' mercy. However, Jolyne shows mercy and gives her just enough water to keep from completely drying out knowing that it was self-preservation rather than loyalty that was driving her. Afterwards, F.F. joins Jolyne out of loyalty and gratitude.
- Berserk Button: Do not drink F.F.'s water. Do not take away F.F.'s water. Do not even sit next to F.F.'s water. Not unless you want to get shot by an angry plankton colony.F.F.: HEY, YOU FUGLY HO! TAKE THAT OUT OF YOUR MOUTH, NOW!!!
- Cloudcuckoolander: Skirts it a bit due to her lack of worldly experience.
- Combat Medic: Can heal deadly wounds by filling them with her plankton and sewing them on a microscopical level, which makes her very valuable as the healer. However she can also fire pieces of said plankton like bullets, which, coupled with her ability to withstand a massive amount of damage, makes her just as useful as a fighter.
- Defeat Means Friendship: Starts as an antagonist, but befriends Jolyne and Ermes after her HeelFace Turn.
- Dying as Yourself: F.F.'s greatest fear was losing her intelligence and not being able to say goodbye to her friends if she died. Therefore, she's actually quite happy that, even though she died, she got to say goodbye to Jolyne and tells her not to bring back her disc as the new Foo Fighters wouldn't be her.
- Extreme Omnivore: F.F. doesn't have a human's sense of taste, so she's not disgusted by drinking any sort of liquid, including blood, sweat, and even vomit.
- Finger Firearms: Her Stand allows her to shoot plankton as a projectile, typically from her fingers. Later panels show her fingers turning into the parts of a gun when she does this.
- Foreshadowing: F.F.'s last words to Jolyne that if she's reborn, she won't have the memories and experiences of the first Foo Fighters. This actually foreshadows the effects of the reborn universe thanks to Pucci, whereby those killed by Made In Heaven will be reborn as slightly different versions of themselves but without the memories or experiences their original counterparts went through.
- From a Single Cell: Since her body is made out of sentient plankton that can quickly multiply, she can survive as long as just a little piece of her body stays intact and grow the rest of the body back from said little piece in a matter of seconds.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: Due to her nature, F.F. 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.
- HeelFace Turn: Jolyne's decision to save her life, even though they were enemies, motivated her to join Jolyne's side and protect her from future threats.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Expends the last of her already-depleted plankton to save Anasui.
- Humanity Is InfectiousEver 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.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: F.F. killing four prisoners was certainly horrific, but the same can't be said for her murder of the asshole prison guard who purposely tried to detonate Ermes' Like a Virgin bracelet just for talking back to him.
- Kill It with Water: An inverted version; dehydrating F. F. is one of the more common ways her opponents attempt to harm her.
- Only a Flesh Wound: Due to the nature of her ability, she's able to survive a bullet to the brain, but she loses Atroe's body.
- Past-Life Memories: After possessing Atroe's body, F.F. can remember some things about her host body's personality traits, such as her preferences for pork, salt, and coffee, or her habit of using about 4 squares of toilet paper when she goes to the bathroom.
- Progressively Prettier: F.F.'s Stand form originally looked rather malformed and long faced, but later becomes more humanoid and looks more like Atroe to represent its growing humanity.
- Recurring Element: In the vein of Anjuro Katagiri's Aqua Necklace from Part 4 and Squalo's Clash from Part 5, Foo Fighters is the series' third Stand with the power to teleport through bodies of liquid.
- Ret-Gone: She refuses Jolyne's offer to take the Foo Fighters disc, on the grounds that even if it's placed into something else, it won't be her. Keeping with this, she's the only hero not to have a counterpart in the new world after Pucci's defeat.
- Reused Character Design: Her initial corpse disguise looks like a mixture of Squalo and Tiziano from Golden Wind, with the former's hairstyle and the latter's manga hair color. Interestingly, she shares her power to teleport through bodies of water with Squalo's Stand, Clash.
- Serial Escalation: One could probably accept falcons, dogs, and even turtles getting Stand powers, but plankton?!
- Town Girls: The Femme to Ermes' Tomboy and Jolyne's Neither.
- Token Non-Human: The heroes' team has badass women, badass men, and badass... corpse-possessing plankton?
- Trademark Favorite Food: F.F. is obsessed with drinking water, even if the water is part of a larger composition (like blood or sweat), but it's justified in that she's incredibly dependant on it to stay alive.
- Turned Against Their Masters: She was originally a colony of plankton that Pucci imbued with a Stand and intelligence in order to protect his large stockpile of stolen Stand discs. However, after befriending Jolyne, F.F. decided to help her fight against Pucci instead—a fact that he was not happy about.
- Uplifted Animal: Like other animals in the series who gained a Stand. And yes, even a colony of plankton can gain human intelligence and superpowers this way.
- Victoria's Secret Compartment: After taking over Atroe's body, F.F. hides Star Platinum's Stand disc inside her cleavage. However, she has to inflate her breasts slightly with plankton to make sure it stays hidden.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Because she's a corpse filled with plankton, F.F. 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?: Averted after F.F. is defeated and joins Jolyne's side.
- Worf Had the Flu: Has an unlucky streak of running out of water at least once per fight.
- 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.
- Younger Than They Look: Is only a few years old.
Weather Report / Wes Bluemarine / Domenico Pucci (Stand: Weather Report)
Voiced by: Yuichiro Umehara (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Stephen Fu (TV anime EN), Toru Okawa (All-Star Battle, Eyes of Heaven)
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.
His Stand is named after the jazz group Weather Report, while his secondary ability is named after Heavy Weather, one of the band's albums. His real name comes from the fashion brand Blumarine, while his birth name comes from fashion designer Domenico Dolce.
- '80s Hair: In flashbacks.
- Amnesiac Dissonance: Normally, he's stoic, soft-spoken, and basically a good person. When he gets his memory back, He suffers violent mood swings between pre and post-amnesia before eventually calming down for his final fight with Pucci.
- Amnesiac Hero: Played for drama, as his memories returning cause devastating effects, not to mention he's not really nice as his real self.
- Anime Hair: Subverted. What many mistake for his hair is actually just a flat-topped buffalo hat. Granted, his actual hair is still rather weird, but a lot more believable than having actual horns in his hair.
- Badass Family: He's actually Enrico Pucci's twin brother, and easily the superior one.
- Baleful Polymorph: Heavy Weather, which turns living things into snails.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Becoming a Nice Guy after getting his memories stolen didn't change how ruthless he is in combat. For instance, when he and Jolyne are both left bleeding out and incapacitated, he unleashes a Desperation Attack that involves raining poison dart frogs in an attempt to kill Pucci, knowing full well there was a chance that Jolyne could die in the storm, too.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: Not counting how Enrico is Obliviously Evil, there's the whole BrotherSister Incest thing with their younger sister, Perla, though he didn't know about that, with the whole Switched at Birth ordeal.
- Birthmark of Destiny: Also inherits the Star mark via his connections to Enrico.
- Bright Is Not Good: Baleful Polymorph rainbows!
- BrotherSister 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...
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": Weather wears a belt with a W-shaped buckle.
- Cain and Abel: In a rare heroic variety, the Cain to Pucci's Abel. With his memories returned, he comes across as the bigger Jerkass, killing a doctor for no reason. Though he is killed by Pucci, Pucci having to extract Weather Report to win came back to bite him when Emporio uses it to kill Pucci.
- 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. Although there are some implications that the whole thing is one big mass hallucination or induced mental illness.
- Chick Magnet: If your chicks are slugs anyway. Also, the flashback sequence focusing on Weather's youth involves a group of high school girls fawning over him in a cafe, which includes Perla as well. In the present, both he and Anasui spontaneously attract the attention of two young women, both of whom consider them very hot.
- Chocolate Baby: Inverted. Racist KKK members assume him to be this because his adoptive father is a black man, even though he's the biological brother of Perla.
- Deadpan Snarker: He makes a deeply sarcastic remark about how Jolyne's plan to knock out some guards to get to the courtyard will not only add five years to her sentence (on top of the original 15 plus the additional five she got for her first escape attempt), but will result in her being sent to solitary confinement for six months.
- Death Seeker: Although he becomes just as omni-vengeful 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...
- Dub Name Change: The Cyberconnect games and the anime change his name to Weather Forecast.
- 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.
- HeelFace Revolving Door: Justified. Weather starts out as antagonistic towards Pucci back when he was Wes Bluemarine, and Pucci had every right to be angry with him. Then, upon becoming amnesiac, Weather instilled himself with heroic virtues and wanted to do the right thing. Finally, upon regaining his memories, he becomes just as Ax-Crazy as he was before he had amnesia, to the point of antagonizing his former friends.
- He's Got Legs: Weather's a very tall, very long-legged young man which is emphasized by his form-fitting pants and the fact that he prefers walking tiptoes. A group of fawning high school girls even comment on his legs and tanned skin in a flashback sequence.
- Imagination-Based Superpower: It seems that Weather Report's power allow his to do anything so long as it can be described as a weather phenomenon. This includes raining frogs and rainbows encoded with subliminal messages that turn people into snails.
- In-Series Nickname: He was apparently known as Weather in high school.
- Intergenerational Friendship: With the entire main cast sans Jotaro. Weather is 39, readily approaching 40, with the only other main character close to his age being Anasui at age 25. Everybody else is 21 years or younger, with the youngest of his friends being Emporio at age 11.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He becomes a much less pleasant person after he gets his memories back, obsessed with revenge against Pucci. Despite this, he's also motivated to take F.F. and Jotaro's Memory discs, showing that his sense of righteousness still remains. He's also plainly disgusted with his brother's actions, and when he can't beat him he makes sure to leave behind his own Stand disc for his friends, setting the stage for his Stand to deal the finishing blow to Pucci.
- 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 Green Dolphin Street Prison. Considering what happens after he gets his memory back, that's a good thing.
- Nice Hat: A flat-topped buffalo hat.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: We don't know if it's intentional, but his fuzzy horned hat makes him look a lot like Jay Kay, to the point where one fan made a Virtual Insanity parody with Weather Report.
- 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 Stereotype Flip: Weather Report has the ability to manipulate air and the weather, but he has a quiet and withdrawn personality. However, after regaining his memories and unleashing the Heavy Weather ability, he Took a Level in Jerkass, which can be read as another straight example of the trope, or a subversion given how harsh the weather can be in real life.
- The Quiet One: Until he gets his memories back and returns to being a Jerkass.
- Rain of Something Unusual: Weather Report can make it rain frogs, including poison dart frogs that are deadly to the touch.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: When the goons Pucci hired went farther than planned (he didn't know they were KKK) and hung Weather, and drove Perla to suicide, 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: Not only does his power become harmful due to the fact he can't turn off his snail transfiguration ability, he's also much more of a jerk than before.
- Superpower Lottery: At full power Weather Report/Heavy Weather's abilities make Weather a global threat, able to control rain storms, turn people into snails, and suck all of the oxygen out of a room. It's pretty telling that, had Jolyne and co not distracted Weather at the critical moment, he would have successfully killed Pucci. And his Stand still manages to kill Pucci even after the latter gains the ability to speed up time.
- 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 Perla without the knowledge that she had more than one brother...
- Theme Twin Naming: Domenico and his twin brother Enrico.
- Token Evil Teammate: Briefly, after regaining his memories. Weather, immediately after retaining his memory disc, threatens a patient with murder for pointing out that Weather took his seat, before outright killing a doctor who came to defend said patient. Then, he picks up two girls who were flirting with him and uses his Stand to make them give him a massage.
- Took a Level in Badass: The initial description of his Stand indicates that he can only affect the weather in the air immediately around him. After the requisite first bout of nearly dying, he can legitimately make it rain outdoors. Then he gains Heavy Weather.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Weather Report's ability to manipulate the weather is more than capable of mass destruction while also being a power-type Stand, making it able to kick ass up close and from a distance. However, while he does become more proficient with it as time goes on, he neither has the best control nor understanding of his Stand. This is best shown during the Savage Garden arc, as his solution to the problem at hand is to summon a tornado of poison dart frogs from South America and cross his fingers. And when Heavy Weather enters the picture, this is put to the extreme: its capable of turning any lifeform that touches the rainbows it generates into snails, and with completely unknown Stand stats that's probably only a fraction of what it can do. But Weather Report has no control over it whatsoever, and it ends up killing him when his allies fall under its influence. Noticably, this is in stark contrast with his brother Pucci, who has much more precise control over his multiple Stands' abilities while never truly obtaining a physically powerful Stand like his brother's.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As shown during flashbacks during his time as Wes Bluemarine, he used to be a kind man with a strong sense of justice. However after the Klu Klux Klan members that Pucci unwittingly hired beat Wes to (almost) death, strung him up on a tree, and caused his girlfriend to commit suicide, Wes became enraged at the entire world enough to develop Heavy Weather.
- Walking Spoiler: Weather's true identity, his status as Pucci's brother, and the true extent of his abilities are all important plot twists in the last third of this Part.
- Weather Manipulation: As his Stand's name suggests, Weather Report can control the weather. This ranges from rain, wind, and lightning, to more out-there phenomena such as frog rain. Once he regains his memories, he can even manipulate the ozone layer itself to project subliminal messages which hypnotize people into thinking they're snails.
- Worf Had the Flu: At full power, and once he gets his memories back, Weather easily has the most broken Stand of the entire main cast. So it's pretty telling that after the fight with Jumpin' Jack Flash, he spends the next 50 or so chapters in the infirmary and only gets out after the main cast has left the prison and the group is forced up against enemies that can warp reality.
- Your Mind Makes It Real: Maybe. The translation is kind of unclear, but we know that the way Heavy Weather works is by manipulating the ozone layer to change the properties of sunshine, in a way that causes rainbows to appear more easily and subliminally affects the mind; Pucci proves that being completely unable to see makes you immune to the effect, and everything goes back to normal immediately when Weather dies, which all makes it seem more like the weird rainbows just slowly convince people that everything is snails.
Narciso Anasui (Stand: Diver Down)
Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Yūichi Nakamura (All-Star Battle, Eyes of Heaven)
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, despite her having no interest in him.
His Stand, Diver Down, can dive into objects to later ambush opponents or tamper with the objects' 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.
- Adapted Out: In the anime adaptation, Anasui's female body no longer appears. Instead, he's still presented as male when he's first introduced.
- Ambiguous Disorder: Ax-Crazy tendencies aside, he says that he "used to be dead" before meeting Jolyne and that his "heart could collapse at any moment", suggesting that he might also suffer from some form of depression.
- Ambiguous Gender Identity: Not only is his look fairly effeminate, to the point that his constantly shirtless state might be the only thing that stopped people from confusing him for a woman, but he first appeared in the manga with the appearance of a woman, secondary sexual characteristics included. As such, it's unclear if Anasui is a man who likes to crossdress, a transmasculine person, or even genderfluid.
- Ax-Crazy: His obsession with "taking things apart" doesn't stop at inanimate objects...
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": Diver Down has stylized Gothic "D"s on its forehead and body.
- Camp Straight: With his fairly effeminate appearance and crossdressing tendencies, you'd be surprised to find out that the guy was sent to jail for murdering his girlfriend. Then there's his obsessive attraction towards Jolyne... Unfortunately for him, she doesn't seem to be in the least bit interested in him.
- Character Development: He starts out rather nasty, only caring about Jolyne and not caring as F.F.'s fight against Kenzō begins to go sour. He gets a bit better over time, being nicer to others, offering to give up his body to save F.F.'s life, and doing his best to comfort the group after Weather's death. Though, this was mostly to please Jolyne.
- This applies to his powers, as well. He initially uses Diver Down to mess with the insides of people in brutal fashions, such as turning Kenzō's legs into springs by shattering and rearranging his bones. As he becomes a kinder person, he instead uses Diver Down to protect people by going inside of them and taking the damage they would have received, such as saving Jotaro from a fatal neck slice during the fight against Pucci.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Freaks out when Jolyne hugs Weather Report, and in Eyes Of Heaven, he briefly turns hostile upon seeing a 17-year-old Jotaro with Jolyne. (Granted, he didn't know they were father and daughter at the time, but still...)
- Creepy Crossdresser: Skirts pretty close to it, which is the in-universe explanation for his appearance, though considering how his Stand can rearrange things from the inside, he may have decided to change it to make him more feminine for whatever reason.
- Cuteness Proximity: In Eyes of Heaven, some of his lines are exclaiming about how cute Jolyne is.Anasui: Oh, I bet she's just so adorable! She always has been!
- Disproportionate Retribution: Anasui landed himself in Green Dolphin Street Prison after he offed his girlfriend and her lover upon catching them in bed together, tearing them apart so they could "never come back together again".
- Dogged Nice Guy: "Nice" is stretching it a bit, though.
- Dub Name Change: His surname of "Anasui" is often removed from adaptations, presumably out of concern of receiving lawsuits from the Anna Sui estate. The English version of All-Star Battle changes his name to "Narc Anastasia", while the English anime adaptation uses "Narciso Anastasia" instead. As for his Stand, its name was changed to "Diver Drive" in adaptations.
- Early Personality Signs: Starting from childhood, he had an obsession with taking things apart and would disassemble his toys, pocket watches, and whatever else he could find. When he was 10, he had to be institutionalized after disassembling his neighbor's car.
- Everyone Has Standards: Even Anasui gets freaked out by Weather Report's sudden increase in Jerkassary after his memory is restored.
- Fantastic Racism: He is the only one in the hero side that calls F.F. "plankton".
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Although Jolyne accepts his help and his status as an ally becomes firmer the further the story progresses, Anasui isn't particularly well-liked among the group because of his Jerkass and Yandere tendencies and for being an unapologetic murderer. If it weren't for Weather Report's influence over him (and to a degree, Jolyne's "charms"), he would be considered completely unreliable by everyone.
- Global Ignorance: A Running Gag has him wondering where Mickey Mouse is. Someone should probably tell him that Port St. Lucie and Orlando are a good 100 miles apart.
- Heroic Sacrifice: With his dying breath, he offers up his body for F.F. to take so that she herself could stave off death. She one-ups him by using the last of her power to heal him. F.F.'s sacrifice heavily affects him by the end of the story, and citing her example, he makes himself the primary target for the Made In Heaven-empowered Pucci by openly using Diver Down to give everyone Super Toughness. His plan to give Jotaro an opening required his complete impalement.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Downplayed and Played for Laughs, perhaps. At one point, he goes over the top trying to court Jolyne in front of Jotaro, asking for his permission to marry her. Jotaro, being in completely new territory here, doesn't know what to do, so he eventually just grabs Jolyne and tries to hide her behind him, telling Anasui to never so much as touch her and at the same time also indicating that he really does care about his daughter. Mission accomplished.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How he meets his end, impaled by Pucci using Jolyne's Stone Free.
- Intangibility: Diver Down's primary ability. It differs from the intangibility other Stands have by being able to bring solid objects along for the ride and being able to rearrange objects it is inside of.
- Ironic Death: He meets his end impaled by Stone Free after Pucci's meddling during Made In Heaven, inadvertently dying to the Stand of the woman he loved most.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Or... tarnished bronze. He has a vaguely altruistic side, is the point. He's willing to die for his friends, at least, even if it's only because they are Jolynes friends.
- Jerkass: To everyone except Jolyne, Weather and Jotaro.
- The Lancer: A secondary one after Ermes is Put on a Bus following her battle with Sports Maxx. Even after she returns right in time for everyone to break out of jail, he retains the role in the "standoffish-but-loyal foil" style to the "close ally" lancer-mold of the former.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Initially a shorter-haired girl before the Unsettling Gender Reveal.
- Love at First Sight: Claims to have fallen in love with Jolyne at the very first sight of her. Despite her lack of interest.
- Love Redeems: His love for Jolyne. Though it takes a bit more than that, and he's still not the nicest guy out there. Still acts hostile.
- Mistaken for Pedophile: In Eyes of Heaven, one of his lines is asking Jotaro for permission to marry Jolyne. Problem is, he can end up saying this to Part 4 Jotaro, whose response is, "Are you nuts? Jolyne's only 6 years old."
- Mr. Fanservice: His mesh shirt exposes his muscular body. It's worth noting that during the main reveal event for the anime, Anasui's official art is introduced with a zoom-in of his crotch.
- Nice Hat: About as cool as Weather Report's.
- Not in This for Your Revolution: Makes it clear to the group that his only motive in helping defeat Pucci is to gain Jolyne's love and approval, and that he has no loyalty towards anyone else. That being said, as the adventure continues, he begins to gain some appreciation for his friends and allies, but no love from Jolyne.
- Personality Powers: From childhood, Anasui has always been obsessed with taking things apart. He got a Stand that can dive into objects and dismantle them from the inside.
- Psycho Pink: Anasui has bright pink hair (apparently his natural hair color, as he had it even as a child) and is more than a little bit Ax-Crazy.
- Single-Issue Wonk: Anasui is almost entirely defined by his obsessive love for Jolyne and desire to marry her. Too bad for him.
- Sociopathic Hero: His proper introduction has Emporio describing how Anasui got into jail by dismembering his girlfriend and the person she was cheating on him with, and the only reason why he sticks around the other protagonists is because he wants Jolyne's affection. Which he never gets.
- Stalker with a Crush: His ideas for courting Jolyne leave something to be desired. Trying to get F.F. to push Jolyne down a flight of stairs, just so he can catch her, and trigger her love for her savior? Um...
- Straight Man: Surprisingly enough, when he and Weather Report are paired up and off on their own during the post-escape chapters. He's the only one of the two who has any real knowledge of the outside world, leading to him commenting on Weather's ignorant antics, and when Heavy Weather turns out to be an even more Sociopathic Hero than he was at his worst, all he can do is react with the shock and horror that any reasonable person would show at such antics as electrocuting two girls and subconsciously turning everyone into snails.
- Swapped Roles: In his introductory chapter, Emporio describes him as a twisted murderer whose nature is only kept in check by Weather Report's presence. When Weather gets his memory back, Anasui ends up being the one trying to keep his murderous nature in check.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: His pink hair, mesh shirt, lipstick and aggressive demeanor are strongly reminiscent of Golden Wind's Diavolo.
- Token Evil Teammate: He tries to become a better person to get together with Jolyne. But fails most of time. Weather ends up usurping this role from him after regaining his memory.
- Unsettling Gender Reveal: His original appearance is as a woman, presumably using Diver Down's internal restructuring ability to give him a disguise to infiltrate the women's prison ward. Later, when she finds out, Ermes is actually pretty surprised to find that Anasui's actually male.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Technically he's wearing a mesh shirt. And even then, it's more like he wrapped himself in maybe a dozen strips of thread and called it good.
- Yandere: He ended up in prison for murdering his ex-girlfriend for cheating on him. He's also quite violent towards anyone who he perceives as getting in the way between him and Jolyne.
Green Dolphin Street Prison Staff
Enrico Pucci (Stands: Whitesnake, C-Moon, Made In Heaven)
Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Yong Yea (TV anime EN), Show Hayami (All-Star Battle), Joji Nakata (Ultra Jump CM, Eyes of Heaven)
A Catholic priest serving as Green Dolphin Street Prison's chaplain. Later revealed to be the mysterious assailant who stole Jotaro's Memory and Stand discs.
Voiced by: Mitsuaki Kanuka (TV anime JP), Arthur Romeo (TV anime EN)
The chief corrections officer at Green Dolphin Street Prison who informs prisoners about the rules of the facility, accompanied by a Hand Puppet alligator named Charlotte.
He is named after Italian fashion designer Rocco Barocco.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Not Loccobarocco himself, but Charlotte. In the manga and the first OP, Charlotte is green with a pink bow. However, in the anime itself, she's pink with a purple bow.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Rather than explain the rules formally like a normal corrections officer would, Loccobarocco opts to use... puppetry.
- Faux Affably Evil: While on the surface, he appears outgoing and polite, he won't hesitate to use Charlotte to insult his prisoners who dare to speak over him.
- Gonk: One of the most notable examples in all of JoJo. Squinty eyes that look ready to pop out of his skull, Pointy Ears, a single tuft of hair, short and pudgy; a giant lump on his head, it makes him look like a Conehead off of Saturday Night Live.
- Hand Puppet: Wears one when speaking with the prisoners named Charlotte.
- Meaningful Name: It shouldn't be surprising that a guy named Loccobarocco would need a check-up from the neck up.
- Pointy Ears: Not as noticeable as Jolyne's lawyer, but his ears are pretty triangular.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He disappears pretty early on into the story, but without him instructing Jolyne and Atroe to inspect the farmlands when two prisoners were murdered, F.F. wouldn't become her own person.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The English subtitles on Netflix spell his name as "Locobaroco", with single C's.
Viviano Westwood (Stand: Planet Waves)
One of the guards assigned to the solitary confinement portion of Green Dolphin Street Prison, and a rather abusive one at that. He attacks Jolyne when he falls under Survivor's influence.
His Stand, Planet Waves, pulls in meteors from outer space to fly into his body. They dissipate before they can actually touch him, but they will harm any opponents standing between him and the meteor.
He is named after British designer Vivienne Westwood, while his Stand is named after the Bob Dylan album Planet Waves. Or at least, it was renamed that way.
- Ax-Crazy: Though he was already sadistic, Survivor makes him a brutal fighting machine hellbent on beating anyone to a pulp for no reason.
- Blood Knight: Survivor makes him into a rather impressive one.
- 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: He enjoys abusing the inmates.
- 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.
- Jerkass: Easily one of the worst of the correctional officers in Green Dolphin. He's a brass, rude and sadistic man who antagonizes and brutalizes the inmates and frequently makes bets with a fellow guard on which of the inmates reaches their breaking point next. Fittingly, he is stationed in solitary confinement. The effects of Survivor effectively make him infinitely worse in this spectrum (and let alone, everyone in the entire solitary confinement), challenging everyone on a duel to death and beating anything in his vicinity.
- Meteor-Summoning Attack: Planet Waves functions as a meteor summoner.
- Orwellian Retcon: His Stand was originally named "Earth Wind and Fire", which Araki forgot he used as the name of the Stand(?) of Mikitaka Hazekura in Diamond is Unbreakable (he spelled the two differently, though). This forced the change to "Planet Waves" once the paperback volume was released.
- Police Brutality: Thanks to Survivor's effects. Although there were signs he had a sadistic streak from the start.
- They Look Just Like Everyone Else!: He's the only enemy Stand user who looks entirely ordinary and has none of the traits of a Fashion-Victim Villain, like literally every other enemy encountered by Jolyne and the group. It's partially because of the story arc drawing suspense on who the enemy actually is, until revealing it's actually one of the guards.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Planet Waves has an absurd stat line (A-ranked in power, range, and durability, B-ranked in speed), but Westwood is still a throwaway villain. But this is JoJo, where Heart Is an Awesome Power is basically a law of physics. That being said, he's shown actually well-trained in actual Martial Arts, going into fighting stances and doing grappling moves resembling Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It would makes sense as he's a prison guard and needs that kind of training to control the prisoners.
Miuccia "Miumiu" Miuller (Stand: Jail House Lock)
Voiced by: Akeno Watanabe (All-Star Battle)
An inmate that attacks Jolyne when she starts her escape attempt from the prison. She's actually the prison's head of security.
Her Stand, Jail House Lock, renders its targets unable to learn and remember three things at a time, affecting all memories starting when its ability is activated.
She is named after the Italian fashion line Miu Miu, which is the personal label of designer Miuccia Prada, who is also the current head designer of the eponymous Prada family fashion house. Her Stand is named after the Elvis Presley song "Jailhouse Rock".
- Climax Boss: The very last opponent fought in the prison, as she's the true jailer. The showdown with her is appropriately a significant step up in terms of difficulty compared to the likes of previous villains, and her defeat marks the abandoning of Green Dolphin Street Prison as a setting.
- The Dragon: Implied to be Pucci's most important servant on the prison, especially since her ability is one of the factors that lets him keep ample control over the location in spite of its large population of Stand users.
- Early-Bird Cameo: While she doesn't appear until near the end of the story, Miumiu can be seen in the first OP, labeled as orange like the other prisoners.
- 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 as a single memory, a reflection.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: Being only able to remember three things at once sounds incredibly lame as a Stand ability, but as Miumiu's arc demonstrates, it becomes nigh impossible to actually attempt attacking her. Acknowledging the presence of something and remembering something from before the activation of Jail House Lock's ability both count towards the four-memory limit, which cripples the victim's ability to plan attacks. She herself acknowledges that it's worse than losing all of one's memories once.
- Hidden in Plain Sight: Sometimes, she dresses herself as a prisoner in order to taunt her victims, since they wouldn't remember her anyways.
- I Shall Taunt You: Since Miumiu's Stand causes her victims to only remember three things at a time she will often get close to one of her targets and exploit this ability to confuse or humiliate them in some way, such as when she slams a cockroach into Jolyne's food before covering it with three condiments to make her forget there's an insect in it. This eventually ends up biting her in the ass when she gets too close to Jolyne, after she used her strings to create a "print out" of Miumiu's face using binary code, confident in her Stand's ability to keep her mind suppressed. This gives Jolyne the opportunity she needed to beat Miumiu into submission and force her to help Jolyne and her friends escape Green Dolphin Street Prison.
- Japanese Ranguage: 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. It makes more sense with the nature her ability, which acts as a non-physical lock to keep the Stand-using inmates quiet.
- King Incognito: She's the true head of security of the prison, but passes as another random inmate. She does this to keep close tabs on escape attempts.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Your short-term memory pretty much ceases to exist once Jail House Lock gets its hands on you.
- Male Gaze: Invoked. Her pants◊ are embroidered with the word "Delicious" right where her butt is.
- Mind Screw: Her Stand power inflicts a condition that causes anyone affected to lose their ability to retain their memories correctly. After learning any new 3 things, they'll forget and reset themselves back to the point where Jail House Lock affected them in the first place. This means that trying to fight her consists of constantly forgetting you are fighting her in the first place.
Green Dolphin Street Prison Inmates
- Ax-Crazy: Unsurprisingly, this maximum security prison is home to more than a few inmates who would kill you as soon as look at you, including Gwess, Anasui, Lang Rangler, and Sports Maxx.
- Bad Powers, Bad People: Invoked by Enrico Pucci. Almost none of the inmates that oppose Jolyne & co. naturally developed their Stands — out of them, only Gwess was pierced by a Stand Arrow. Instead, Pucci would meet with the inmates, using his work as priest as a cover, then choose the nastiest fit possible for the Stand disc he had at hand.
- Bequeathed Power: Some of the Stand users opposing Jolyne and her friends aren't born users, besides Gwess, who got her Stand from the Arrowhead. Instead, Pucci gave them their abilities from a collection of Stands DISCS he stole from their initial wielders. Considering Jotaro fell into a coma and almost died after his split from his DISC, the original users are long dead.
- Out of the many opponents Jolyne and her company fight, there are only six natural Stand Users, and one technically isn't a prisoner.
- No Dress Code: Apparently, there are no uniforms in Green Dolphin Street Prison, because everyone's outfits are about as outrageous as you'd expect JoJo characters to be wearing.
- Prison Rape: Implied. Prisoners who don't stand up for themselves will be pegged as weaklings and extorted out of more and more money by more aggressive prisoners. Once they have no more money left, they will be forced to pay with, in Gwess' words, "their bodies and their minds."
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Bribery is a regular fixture of life at Green Dolphin Street Prison to get past various rules of the prison.
Gwess (Stand: Goo Goo Dolls)
Voiced by: Momoko Taneichi (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Amber Lee Connors (TV anime EN), Takako Honda (All-Star Battle)
Jolyne's cellmate who was sentenced to 12 years in prison after being charged with arson, attempted murder, and parole violation. She's a bit off her nut.
After buying Jolyne's pendant off of Ermes, she got a Stand that she calls Goo Goo Dolls, which allows her to shrink anyone to a minuscule size instantaneously.
She is named after the clothing brand Guess, while her Stand is named after the rock band Goo Goo Dolls.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: In the colored manga, Gwess' underclothes are black and yellow, resembling that of a bumblebee. In the anime, they're instead changed to be indigo and dark purple.
- Animal Motifs: Gwess has a bird motif. She's first introduced with a pet parrot, her hat has a bird's feet pattern on the brim, and her hair sticks up at the back like tail feathers. She's also in prison, which makes her a "jailbird".
- Ax-Crazy: Gwess is dangerously temperamental and will violently lash out at people for the smallest of offenses. She hits Jolyne just for trying to sit on the bottom bunk of their cell, literally seconds after meeting her.
- Bait the Dog: In spite of her angry outburst, Gwess quickly showed an apologetic and friendly demeanor to Jolyne as an approachable roommate with slight temper issues. She then reveals her true nature as a Control Freak that plays with her victims like cute animal dolls and has them killed if they don't act the way she wants them. Once Jolyne experiences this firsthand, she doesn't want anything to do with her, only tolerating her when she gives information of the prison system.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her outfit exposes her stomach.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Gwess is a capricious inmate who can put on a façade of kindness but snap and reveal her moody, ferocious nature in the next moment.
- Borrowed Catchphrase: Likes to say "Such a good child!" in the same manner as Alessi. She also uses Cioccolata's "Good! Good good good good..."
- Call-Back: Much like Tamami Kobayashi from Diamond is Unbreakable, at first Gwess appears friendly towards Jolyne but in actuality, she is manipulating Jolyne with her Stand power like how Kobayashi used The Lock on Koichi's parents to get information out of him. Also like Kobayashi, Gwess swears servitude towards Jolyne following her defeat.
- Cast from Money: In All-Star Battle, she appears in the Green Dolphin Street Prison stage. Money will appear at random on the stage, and the player can use it to pay her to shrink enemies with Goo Goo Dolls.
- Child-Like Voice: In the anime, her natural speaking voice is actually pretty low, but she sometimes forces it up into a cutesy, high-pitched register.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She's a recurring character early on but pretty much disappears after the Foo Fighters arc. She briefly returns to play a minor role during the Jail House Lock arc before being shelved for the rest of the story.
- Contralto of Danger: Both her Japanese and English VAs in the anime.
- Control Freak: Gwess is a big control freak, and it plays out in her Stand's ability; it will work only on those targeted by Gwess' desire for friendship and control.
- Cute and Psycho: Gwess has the looks, but she's way off her rocker.
- Defeat Means Friendship: To an extent. While she stops antagonizing Jolyne after getting beaten up and offers her sound advice on the inner workings of the prison, Jolyne still hates her and refuses to talk to her.
- Dub Name Change: Goo Goo Dolls is called Cry Cry Dolls in the English dub of the anime. The English subtitles name it G.G. Dolls instead.
- Facial Markings: She has three little black dots under each eye.
- Fun Size: Goo Goo Dolls can instantly shrink its victim to the size of a mouse, the size reduction is instantaneous and unnoticeable at first by the victim.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: When Jolyne first meets Gwess, she greets her and even offers her biscuits. Only to suddenly get angry and yell at Jolyne for approaching her bunk bed, although there was no indication it was hers.
- Jerkass: She's a crass, two-faced woman who abuses her victims into indulging her whims.
- Jerkass Has a Point: As unpleasant as she is, she makes a good point that Jolyne shouldn't frivolously loan out money to other people, lest she get a reputation as someone who's easy to take advantage of. Jolyne realizes Gwess has a point after a prisoner Jolyne lent money to not only refuses to repay her, but tries to borrow even more, at which point Jolyne comes up with a plan to get the money back.
- Living Doll Collector: And dresses them up in dead animal skins to keep as pets.
- Locked Out of the Loop: She's completely oblivious about Pucci's machinations and the Stand discs. As far as Gwess knows, she and Jolyne are the only Stand users in the prison.
- Lone Wolf Boss: She's the only enemy Stand User in Stone Ocean who isn't affiliated with Pucci.
- Mood-Swinger: Gwess' mood is unpredictable. One minute she can act kind and friendly before turning angry and murderous in the next.
- Nice Hat: Gwess wears a voided hat furnished with a bird's feet motif, out from which her hair sticks out.
- No Self-Buffs: Gwess is one of the rare Stand Users who can't use her ability on herself. She can't use Goo Goo Dolls to shrink herself, unlike Formaggio, who could using Little Feet.
- Personality Powers: Goo Goo Dolls' ability to shrink is explained as a manifestation of her desire to make friends but have power over them.
- Pokémon Speak: Goo Goo Dolls constantly says "goo, goo". In the English dub, it says "cry, cry".
- Psychopathic Manchild: In spite of her initial level-headed impression, Gwess is actually very childish, treating her victims like a girl playing with stuffed animals and having them do cutesy animal sounds. She also has them killed when they stop being of interest to her.
- Red Herring: Gwess at first glance looks like she would follow the series tradition of a Warmup Boss who would be defeated only to become an ally to the protagonist note . Gwess actually breaks this streak, however, because after her defeat, she gets Demoted to Extra. She's nicer to Jolyne and does help her to an extent, such as helping her understand how the prison works, but Jolyne refuses to trust her.
- Shout-Out: In the anime, while taunting Jolyne at one point, she repeats her name in a singsong voice, set to the tune of the song she's named after.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Most people translated her name as "Guess" to match the fashion brand. Everyone was surprised when JOJOVELLER named her "Gwess".
- Spikes of Villainy: Goo Goo Dolls has small, thin, sharp spikes adorning its head and torso, making it look like a cactus.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: The ability to shrink down people brings Formaggio's Stand, Little Feet, from Golden Wind to mind. That being said, a noticeable difference is that unlike Formaggio, Gwess is unable to shrink herself in order to give her an excuse to use others to help her escape Green Dolphin Street Prison, while by comparison, Formaggio wouldn't have a problem doing alone the work Gwess needed Jolyne to do to escape.
- Yandere: Gwess seems to be this way towards anybody she affects with Goo Goo Dolls. After having them be stuffed into taxidermic animals, she'll absolutely smother them with love and affection, but she also expects them to both love her back and follow her every order, or she'll lash out at them and potentially even dispose of them through brute force.
Johngalli A. (Stand: Manhattan Transfer)
Voiced by: Satoshi Hino (TV anime JP), David Matranga (TV anime EN)
A former disciple of DIO and an expert sniper before cataracts turned him nearly blind. The body that Jolyne and Romeo crashed into was actually already dead and was one of Johngalli A.'s targets. He attempts to kill Jotaro and Jolyne to avenge DIO's death.
His Stand, Manhattan Transfer, reads air movements and can redirect his bullets, meaning he remains 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.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: In the manga, his hair is rose-colored, while in the anime, it's white.
- Animal Motifs: Manhattan Transfer looks and moves a lot like a jellyfish.
- Arsenal Attire: He carries a sniper rifle that he conceals as a walking cane.
- Avenging the Villain: Aiming to take revenge on the Joestar family for DIO's death, he participates in the plan to frame Jolyne and works towards killing her and Jotaro inside prison.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Johngalli is quite analytical in his approach, contemplating all the necessary parameters for him to succeed at sniping, like his target's height, the direction and force of the wind, and his estimations about the trajectory of the bullet. He's able to do this despite being blind.
- Big Bad Duumvirate: Subverted. He and Pucci are working as equals to use Jolyne as bait to lure in and defeat Jotaro, but Pucci betrays and kills Johngalli afterward since he's the only one who knows his true identity as Whitesnake's master.
- Bizarre and Improbable Ballistics: Invoked with his Stand, Manhattan Transfer, whose main utility is positioning itself to ricochet Johngalli A.'s shots, allowing him to take down targets at improbable angles.
- Blind Weaponmaster: Johngalli A. is blind thanks to cataracts, but that doesn't stop him from being a dangerous opponent with his Stand and rifle.
- Boom, Headshot!: How Pucci finishes him off after Jolyne defeated him, having considered his usefulness finished.
- Cold Sniper: Justified, he is an ex-soldier.
- Combat and Support: His Stand reads the wind for him so he can know where to fire.
- Dub Name Change: His Stand is renamed to "Downtown Transfer" in the English localization of the anime.
- Facial Markings: His cheeks are marked by a thin, vaguely tribal symbol.
- Handicapped Badass: Well, he is blind but also an adept sniper. He disguises his rifle as a cane which he keeps on his person.
- He Knows Too Much: Because he knows Pucci's face, his Stand, Whitesnake, shoots him in the head (before planting the gun on his body, so that others would deem the event a suicide).
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: Manhattan Transfer is a Stand with no combat ability of its own. However, its long-range and set of powers complete Johngalli A.'s sniping, enabling him to shoot his targets from afar, precisely, and through blind spots. Its size also means that it can slip through any opening no problem, meaning it's only a matter of time until Johngalli A. finds you.
- I Surrender, Suckers: He puts his hands up in surrender and claims that he's going to drop his gun after Jolyne traps him with Stone Free, secretly preparing to fire at Manhattan Transfer and ricochet the bullet straight to her. Unfortunately for him, Jolyne sees this coming and finishes him off with a Star Platinum-worthy Ora Barrage.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: You wouldn't expect a blind man like Johngalli A. to be such a good sniper, would you? Well, Manhattan Transfer is the Stand equivalent of a radar and can impart a new angle to his bullets when they reach it.
- Locked Out of the Loop: Despite being Pucci's partner and a follower of DIO, he doesn't seem to know about the Heaven plan, believing that simply Pucci sought after Jotaro's Star Platinum rather than his memories that were crucial for the plan's completion.
- Long-Range Fighter: Justified as Johngalli A. is an expert sniper, but also blind, meaning he can't beat someone in a straight-up fight. That's when his Stand comes into play.
- Mr. Fanservice: His introduction scene has him in the shower, with the anime giving a close-up shot of his butt.
- Naked on Arrival: Johngalli A.'s introduction shows him taking a shower, fully nude, showing the audience his back from the knees up, buttocks and all.
- No Full Name Given: It's never stated what his surname initial "A." stands for.
- Recurring Element: Manhattan Transfer has some traits similar to previous Stands. Like Hol Horse's Emperor from Part 3 and Guido Mista's Sex Pistols from Part 5, it is used in tandem with an ordinary firearm to direct the user's bullets. And like Narancia Ghirga's Aerosmith, also from Part 5, it functions as a radar allowing its user to track people from far away.
- Red Herring: Jotaro revealing that he's not only a former minion of DIO's looking to avenge him but also the one who had Jolyne set up in the first place would make you think that he's going to be the Big Bad. However, he's defeated and ultimately killed not long after his debut, with Pucci establishing himself as the true Big Bad of Part 6.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Originally "Jongalli A".
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of N'Doul, a blind Stand user that is totally loyal to DIO. He even hides his sniper rifle in a cane that looks nearly identical to N'Doul.
- Undying Loyalty: Johngalli A. is fanatically devoted to DIO despite never meeting the vampire.
- Would Hurt a Child: Although he could tell Emporio was a small kid by reading his air movements, he was still fully willing to kill him before he could lead Jotaro and Jolyne away from his Stand. Or was he?
Thunder McQueen (Stand: Highway to Hell)
Voiced by: Toru Nara (TV anime JP), Jas Patrick (TV anime EN)
A prisoner working as a janitor who is extremely suicidal.
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.
- Amnesiac Dissonance: It's strongly implied that Thunder's gloomy, pitiful, yet repugnant personality is due to lacking his Memory disc, which show him being a greedy Jerkass that steals from sleeping prisoners most of the time, thus leaving him with his pure Death Seeker desires inherent to his person.
- Anti-Villain: He does not seem like a bad guy, but just a pawn of Pucci who took advantage of his suicidal tendencies. Though his general self-centeredness and fixation on his own misery keep him from being wholly sympathetic.
- The Atoner: He is quite self-centered, believing himself to be rejected by society and feeling a need to be this via constant suicide attempts.
- Born Unlucky: If his story is true, he is in prison for having shot a woman, which he claims was a freak accident when he picked up a gun to clean it and it went off at the same moment the woman fell past his window while attempting suicide by jumping from the 11th floor of his building.
- Death Seeker: McQueen is suicidal, suffering from a personality disorder resulting from crippling depression.
- Dub Name Change: His Stand is renamed to "Highway to Death" in the English version of All-Star Battle, and "Freeway Thru Hell" in the English anime localization.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: In the hands of anyone else, Highway to Hell's ability would probably be considered near useless, since it only works via self-injury. However, in the hands of a suicidally depressed man like McQueen, it can prove to be dangerously effective.
- Improbable Hairstyle: Thunder's hair has the letter "M" shaved on the right side of his forehead, while the left side of his forehead is curved along with his left eyebrow. It looks like his hair is trying to spell out the first letters of his last name.
- It's All About Me: Why he's considered so awful by Pucci. He'll turn absolutely any situation into a reason to talk about how horrid and pitiful he is, and he has no regard for anyone else dying due to his actions.
- Jerkass: In spite of his initial pitifulness and bipolar demeanor of a pessimistic Death Seeker aside, Thunder is still a man who is willing to have someone die with him as well whether they want it or not. And it's implied that with his Memory disc intact, that he normally steals money from sleeping prisoners.
- Lack of Empathy: He points out that Ermes is trying to keep him from committing suicide because he's killing her too. And tries to electrocute himself anyway just so he wouldn't die alone.
- Neck Snap: After Ermes made a duplicate of his head and removed the sticker that made it, both of his heads clash and inflicted this, taking him down. Afterwards, he recovered following his disc being returned.
- Nervous Wreck: Thunder is easily upset and cries, with any conversation veering towards reminding himself of a bad memory and claiming how pathetic he is.
- 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.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His original fan-translated name was "Xander McQueen", but "Thunder" is what shows up in official translations.
- Supernatural Suffocation: His Stand, Highway to Hell, copies any injury he inflicts upon himself onto another person. When he tries to drown himself, the Stand turns into a liquid blob that wraps itself around Ermes' nose and mouth, suffocating her until she manages to keep him from drowning.
- Synchronization: Highway to Hell inflicts his own self-injury onto a target as well as on himself.
- Taking You with Me: His Stand's modus operandi. Thunder'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.
- Tears of Joy: He sheds tears after Ermes tells him off how he's gotta stop thinking of himself and stop Pucci's manipulation over him, and is glad to find someone to bring down with him.
- Verbal Tic: McQueen has a language tic and often elongates the words he pronounces.
Voiced by: Mariya Ise (TV anime JP), Brittany Lauda (TV anime EN)
A female prisoner at Green Dolphin Street Prison who joins the search party for the missing inmates in the wetlands. After her death, her body is possessed by Foo Fighters.
She is named after the Italian fashion company Etro.
- All of the Other Reindeer: Due to her timidity, Atroe's often targeted by other, more aggressive inmates. She's also the only prisoner with a significant backstory that doesn't end up antagonizing the protagonists.
- Anime Hair: Her hair has serrated edges and a smooth surface that makes it look more like a cap or a broken eggshell.
- Bully Magnet: Apparently, her timidity makes her an easy target for other, more aggressive inmates in the prison. She joins the search party to escape from being bullied for a while.
- Cloudcuckoolander: We don't know much about her personality, but she's implied to have a few screws loose, given her obsession with kidnapping.
- The Eeyore: For most of her screentime (as herself, not F.F.), she wears a sad, puppy-eyed expression.
- Explosive Leash: This is what ends up causing her death. During the search for the missing inmates, the prisoners in the search party are fitted with explosive "Like a Virgin" bracelets that will go off if they step 50 meters away from the guard supervising them. Foo Fighters kills the guard and drags his body away from the party, causing Atroe's bracelet to explode and kill her.
- Goal in Life: For some odd reason, her childhood dream was to get kidnapped. She would purposely get herself lost in department stores, hoping that somebody would kidnap her. As an adult, she got sentenced to seven years in Green Dolphin Street Prison after kidnapping a child for ten days.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: It's hard to call her outright good, but she has a good scar that's stitched up underneath her right eye, likely the result of her being a Bully Magnet.
- Hidden Depths: According to supplementary materials, her favorite movie is Edward Scissorhands.
- Innocent Blue Eyes: Downplayed — while Atroe is not completely innocent, having kidnapped a child and received a prison sentence for it, she never harms anyone else in the prison and is in fact a target of bullying herself. She also happens to have wide, bright blue eyes.
- Kill and Replace: While working for Whitesnake, Foo Fighters kills Atroe and the other prisoners while trying to protect the Stand discs. After it turns good, Foo Fighters possesses Atroe's body so it can assist Jolyne in human form.
- Muggle: Atroe is an ordinary inmate with no Stand power. However, her body post-mortem is used as the host for Foo Fighters, a sentient Stand.
- Shrinking Violet: She has a timid personality and is bullied by the other inmates. This makes it easier for Foo Fighters to impersonate her without anyone noticing discrepancies in "Atroe's" behavior, as Atroe mainly kept to herself and was not noticed very much unless somebody wanted to bully her.
- Spell My Name with an "S": As with most of the characters in Stone Ocean, Atroe's name is no exception, as most people used "Etro" to refer to her, and "Atroe" was shown to be the official translation.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: She dies not less than 10 minutes after she's introduced. Almost everything we know about her is stuff mentioned by other prisoners, F.F. after it possesses her, and supplementary materials.
Miraschon (Stand: Marilyn Manson)
Voiced by: Yui Kondo (TV anime JP), Suzie Yeung (TV anime EN)
A female prisoner who is described as a compulsive liar and thief who enjoys stealing and gambling. She is still desperate enough for parole to work for Pucci.
Her Stand is Marilyn Manson, which activates automatically if her target thinks they cheated or lost a bet. Once that happens, Marilyn Manson pursues the target indefinitely to take whatever is of equal value and if the price is still insufficient, it'll steal their organs to sell on the black market, only stopping when the appropriate amount of organ money is obtained.
She is named after the fashion designer Mila Schön, while her Stand is named after the rock band Marilyn Manson.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After Jolyne manages to one-up her, Miraschon loses her calm and tries to flee. When she's at Jolyne's mercy, she begs and tries to negotiate her way out.
- Anime Hair: Her front hair is basically a ring around her face with bars in it.
- Barely Changed Dub Name: Her Stand is renamed "Mary Lynn Manson" in the English dub (which is honestly pretty clever).
- Bare Your Midriff: The lower part of her shirt is open, allowing a view of her stomach.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted hard. She's a beautiful young woman, at least before Jolyne practically caves her face inward.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Acts as a mild-mannered girl in front of Pucci when appealing to him for parole, while trying to steal his cross. Pucci easily sees right through it.
- Borrowed Catchphrase: Shares the D'Arby Brothers' "GOOD!".
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Unlike with McQueen, who was only given a Stand disc, Miraschon is given both a Stand disc and a Memory disc, the latter being what instructs her to go after Jolyne, while also turning her into The Stoic and erasing her memory of meeting Pucci.
- Compulsive Liar: As stated above she's considered as such. Miraschon is shown pretending to have turned a new leaf to Pucci, but he discovers that she has stolen a gilded cross from him. See Personality Powers below.
- Cutting the Knot: Her fate, where after losing the bet, Jolyne decides that if she can't win the bet, and she can't stop the Stand, she can easily beat the Stand user, and beats the shit out of Miraschon.
- Dirty Coward: Shown to be one since her Stand isn't used for fighting and she herself isn't one either. Not surprisingly she reveals she tried to fix the game to beat the protagonists, however when Jolyne failed to finish Ermes' bet, she just pummels Miraschon with a baseball until she deactivates her Stand.
- Dub Name Change: Marilyn Manson is changed to the similar-sounding Mary Lynn Manson in the English dub.
- Empty Eyes: To further emphasize her changing after receiving Marilyn Manson, her eyes become dull and lifeless, now lacking pupils too.
- Equivalent Exchange: Marilyn Manson will collect items from victims to fulfill the payment that was bet upon if a game is lost. Going far enough to steal organs to sell for the appropriate price on the black market.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: Miraschon initially has shorter bangs emerging from the top of her forehead before they elongate to looking like bars sectioning off her face. The implication is that gaining the Stand disc caused this change of appearance.
- Fatal Flaw: Her immense greed. Fitting for a gambler, her greed compels her to always want more without ever considering the idea of cutting her losses and quitting while she's ahead. This is seen in her introduction, where she attempts to sneak out Pucci's bejeweled crucifix in the middle of her parole meeting with him and gets her face slammed into a table corner for her troubles. Her avaricious nature winds up screwing her over again at the climax of her "fight" with Jolyne. Rather than simply surrendering after Jolyne managed to corner her, Miraschon attempts to sabotage her and proudly boasts that she'll take both her organs and Star Platinum's disc, only for Jolyne to out-gambit her and reduce her face to raw hamburger meat.
- Fur and Loathing: Marilyn Manson is a dangerous and relentless Stand, and its body is covered in some sort of fur-like material.
- The Gambler: Miraschon certainly is one, and it's her method of attack. She makes bets (such as how many times they can catch a baseball) with high rewards ($1,000). If they win, she'll make the bet even higher so they keep going, but if they lose that's when her Stand comes into play. See the trope below.
- Hook Hand: Marilyn Manson's hands are hook-like pincers, convenient for organ harvesting.
- It Can Think: Downplayed, as Marilyn Manson is an Automatic Stand, rather than sentient. But Jolyne implies when she wins that Marilyn Manson itself judged the conditions of her victory being fair, much to Miraschon's shock. Notably, Marilyn Manson doesn't just return the inherited goods back, it also heals the person it has harvested the organs from. Counts as Adaptational Intelligence, as Marilyn Manson never acted in such a way in the manga.
- Logical Weakness: Marilyn Manson isn't activated by cheating; it's triggered via a target's guilty conscience from thinking they've cheated, à la The Lock from Part 4. During the game of catch, a rule against using Stand abilities was never established; Ermes gets attacked after using Kiss, due to thinking it was banned. However, F.F. utilizes her powers in increasingly ludicrous ways without being punished at all, likely due to her unique nature. Jolyne catches on to this, and starts bullshitting Loophole Abuses: like how they never agreed on the catching partner or what the definition of "catching a ball" even is, in order to clear her conscience; thus protecting her from the Stand long enough to beat the crap out of Miraschon.
- Lost Him in a Card Game: Much nastier than with the D'Arby Brothers. Basically, if you think 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.
- Lured into a Trap: Miraschon is quite crafty and adept in setting up traps. For instance, she baited the heroes with an easy $100 bet into a second bet, taking into account that the prisoners would have to go back to their cells soon. Another is paying a guard to interrupt the heroes' game of catch and doing such things as sitting near F.F.'s water cup to piss her off. All the while knowing what happens if they lose or screw up.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Marilyn Manson is immune to physical attacks, with the blows phasing through it. This forces Jolyne to attack Miraschon directly to cancel out the effect.
- Obviously Evil: Miraschon is so heavy handed about betting over trivial things (such as paying 100 dollars for catching a baseball 100 times) that it immediately cues Jolyne, Ermes and F.F. in that she's probably working for Whitesnake.
- Organ Theft: Weaponized. If the person she's betting doesn't have the required payment, Marilyn Manson will forcibly take their organs and sell them on the black market for the remaining price.
- Personality Powers: Invoked in-universe in the exact same manner as Thunder McQueen. Upon realizing that she's ballsy enough to steal 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 unique title, in this case, "Debt Collector".
- Social Darwinist: She's a bit of one, mentioning that in prison one needs money and that only the strong can get it.
- Sore Loser: For all of her bravado, Miraschon is a sore loser. She tried to claim that Jolyne had cheated near the end of the fight, even though Jolyne outsmarted her fair and square.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Mirashon" instead of "Miraschon".
- The Stoic: After Pucci gives her Marilyn Manson until near the end of her fight.
Lang Rangler (Stand: Jumpin' Jack Flash)
Voiced by: Chikahiro Kobayashi (TV anime JP), Dave Wittenberg (TV anime EN)
A rather calculating and arrogant male prisoner imprisoned for stabbing his college professor a total of 69 times.
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".
- Abnormal Ammo: Lang's ammo of choice are an assortment of screws, nuts and bolts stored inside Jumpin' Jack Flash's wrists, which are fired at his opponents by spinning them rapidly.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Lang Rangler's bio describes him as someone who thinks about things logically, and it shows during his fight with Jolyne and Weather Report. He creates fool-proof plans to win his battles while regularly talking to himself and examining the situation and the target's moves.
- Ax-Crazy: Subtle on the surface compared to most at first, but his crime of stabbing his professor 69 times in a rage is something to consider.
- Bad People Abuse Animals: At one point in their fight, he shoots live rats at Jolyne, with the resulting blood splatter covering her cloud suit's helmet and obstructing her vision.
- Bizarre Human Biology: Lang possesses suction cup-like fingertips; this is somehow a natural ability of his own, affording him further advantage in his Stand-induced weightlessness by allowing him to cling to walls.
- Chest Insignia: Both his clothes and his Stand have a rocket-shaped cutout on the torso, alluding to his Stand ability.
- Crazy-Prepared: He keeps a bottle of dioxide inside one of his shoes to produce oxygen and use it against his opponent inside the gravity vacuum.
- Didn't Think This Through: As noted by Jolyne, had he shut off the zero gravity while he was outside he could have made a clean getaway. Shutting it off while inside ended up causing the gravitational pull to send him and Jolyne towards each other, to receive a beatdown from Stone Free.
- Does Not Wear Shoes: For whatever reason, he keeps his shoes tied around his feet.
- Dub Name Change: Jumpin' Jack Flash is changed to Jumpin' Jack Spark in the English localization.
- Exactly What I Aimed At: Points out to Jolyne during their battle is when he fired projectiles, he wasn't attempting to strike Weather Report but the metal barrel that's within the gravity zone, causing it to explode due to air inside being pressurized inside a vacuum.
- 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.
- Goggles Do Nothing: Lang wears a pair of goggles over his unusual headgear that covers the middle of his eyes vertically.
- Gravity Screw: Jumpin' Jack Flash causes gravity to not apply to anything and anyone it affects. The effect spreads to anything that its victim touches, from objects to other people to even the air inside rooms, creating a vacuum thanks to decompression. Notably, Lang can cancel this zero-gravity effect at his own will, which he usually does as a last resort to save himself out of sticky situations.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Lang Rangler is usually calm, but he's prone to violent outbursts when he's upset.
- Mad Scientist: Possibly. Lang Rangler has immense knowledge on chemistry which he weaponizes quite exceptionally during his fight with Jolyne and Weather, and if the flashback sequence in the anime is anything to go by, he was at least studying something in laboratory environment.
- Nice Hat: What is initially assumed to be an exaggerated example of Anime Hair that somehow has bangs that cover the vertical midsection of the eyes is revealed to be an odd looking hat with vertical sections covering the middle of his eyes, which he wears goggles over them.
- Not So Stoic: Initially he maintains a stoic veneer, rarely speaking a word at first. Then he has a Slasher Smile when it seems he has the upper hand against Jolyne and Weather Report, followed by a Villainous Breakdown when he's pulled into the vacuum.
- Psycho for Hire: Unlike Thunder and Miraschon before him, Lang is, by his own words, a killer who stabbed his professor 69 times and would gladly kill again.
- Required Secondary Powers: Lang has inherent suction like fingertips in order to remain stable while the zero-gravity is in effect, otherwise, Lang would be floating around weightless like his victims.
- Rhyming Names: Lang Rangler. It's more obvious in Japanese, which treats both L and R as the same sound.
- Running on All Fours: When chasing Jolyne and Weather Report, he pursues them with vast speed crawling on the ground.
- Spectacular Spinning: Jumpin' Jack Flash has centrifuges on its wrists that it can use to launch nuts and screws at enemies. Jolyne uses them to defeat him by catching her strings in them and pulling herself towards him. A No-Holds-Barred Beatdown ensues.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Lang Wrangler", like the fashion line.
- 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.
- Super Spit: His spit can turn anyone into a zero gravity point upon contact. Rangler was also able to fire his spit with such velocity that it reached Jolyne upwards on a staircase.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To Secco from Golden Wind. Both wear dark brown full-body suits, have dog-like mannerisms by going on all fours, and have the power to alter the surrounding environment while still being able to move around freely in itnote . Both are also clearly unhinged psychopaths, plan to become The Starscream, and are disposed of in a similar fashion (Secco is thrown in a garbage disposal truck, while Lang Rangler falls in a laundry basket).
- Villainous Breakdown: He was fairly calm and composed during his fight with Jolyne, until she pulled him into his own anti-gravity vacuum. Then his blood starts to boil (figuratively and literally) as he attempts to kill her with an explosive bottle of dioxide in a fit of rage.
- Would Hit a Girl: Besides attempting to kill Jolyne due to being instructed by Pucci to do so, Lang went to jail in the first place due to stabbing his professor 69 times for petty reasons, with the intention of doing it more once he was freed.
- Your Head A-Splode: Lang's MO of killing his victims. After locking them in zero-gravity, he waits for them to affect areas that lead to the outdoors, causing the oxygen in the area to get sucked out, and then have their heads explode from boiling blood.
Sports Maxx (Stand: Limp Bizkit)
Voiced by: Tsuyoshi Koyama (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Kane Jungbluth-Murry (TV anime EN), Kosuke Toriumi (All-Star Battle)
The gangster who killed Ermes' sister.
His Stand is Limp Bizkit, which can revive the dead as invisible zombies.
He is named after the fashion brand Sportmax, while his Stand is named after the Nu Metal band Limp Bizkit.
- Ax-Crazy: Although Maxx is shown to be respectable and reserved in prison, especially to Pucci, it's quite clear that he's just keeping up appearances for his prospects of being granted a parole. He only maintains his tough guy persona to show mildly hostile behavior to weaker inmates, just to demonstrate that he's no pushover. However, in actuality, he's still an utterly violent and brutal mobster throughout with a self-destructive addiction to heroin and sex. This is shown in graphic detail in a flashback where he brutally curb-stomps a man to death in what appears to be a reference to the infamous scene in American History X before murdering Ermes' sister, Gloria, for witnessing the scene. This is taken Up to Eleven when Maxx becomes an undead zombie while retaining some of his sentience, brutally devouring a female inmate for brains before going on a rampage to avenge his death to Ermes, showing that he's clearly far more intelligent than a regular zombie, but just as feral.
- Arch-Enemy: To Ermes after killing her sister.
- Bad Powers, Bad People: His Stand power revives dead as invisible, inaudible zombies that devour everything organic. Sounds like a perfect ability for a sadistic mobster who leaves no potential eyewitness alive.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first glance, Sports Maxx appears to be a courteous and respectable prisoner with a botany passion. In truth, he's a dangerous and bloodthirsty gangster responsible for killing Ermes' sister and other innocent people. Then again, Maxx may be acting kind, so that he may leave prison early for good behavior.
- Cluster F-Bomb: Unleashes a pretty epic one after realizing he's become an undead zombie.
- Cold-Blooded Torture: Goes without saying for a nasty criminal like Maxx, he appears to be very fond of inflicting torture to his opponents. Like seen in a flashback, Maxx had just finished torturing one of his associates and at prison he seems more than willing to rough up inmates that owe him money. He also likes to take his time eating Ermes alive after she had accidentally turned Maxx into a zombie.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: Similarly, Maxx is sadistic to the point he prefers gruesome acts of murder as an intimidation tactic, like when he drives a wooden stick through a man's skull via curb stomp in the flashback. Thankfully, he is on the receiving end of this too: twice in fact. First, Ermes traps him in a sewage pipe that drowns him alive and the second time, after Maxx becomes an undead zombie, Ermes pummels Maxx until his Stand disc comes out, reducing him into a pile of ash when the undead nature of his Stand ability can no longer revive him.
- Death Glare: Gives a particularly hellish one at Gloria Costello in the flashback after she witnesses him murdering a man and another one when picking up her photo in prison left by Ermes. He also has a particularly animalistic and feral stare when stalking Ermes after he becomes a zombie.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: He's a mob boss and unrepentant murderer who killed an innocent woman for witnessing one of his hits, but is ultimately arrested for racketeering and given a rather lenient sentence. Comparisons to any number of powerful people who did heinous things but were ultimately arrested for financial reasons and/or given light sentences (most notably Al Capone) can apply.
- Dub Name Change: He's referred as Sports Maximum in the English dub of the anime. Along with possibly the most ludicrous instance in the series, as in Eyes of Heaven his Stand is rechristened as Flaccid Pancake.
- Evil Sounds Deep: In the anime, he speaks with an imposing, sinister baritone.
- Faux Affably Evil: Maxx appears to be well-spoken and courteous to other inmates, as well as having something of a passion for botany, but all of this is just a front to mask his identity as a relentless, bloodthirsty gangster who won't hesitate to assassinate others whom he crosses.
- Fluffy the Terrible: To a degree. While Sports Maxx isn't up there with the likes of Vanilla Ice and Cioccolata as having the most misleading name to a terrifying villain, it's still pretty cheesy and non-threatening for a vicious criminal like him. Similarly, his Stand with the ability to revive dead as undead zombies is named after the influential, although often ridiculed, Nu Metal band Limp Bizkit, and the localized version in Eyes of Heaven is called Flaccid Pancake.
- Icy Blue Eyes: Maxx's most distinctive characteristic aside from his Unusual Eyebrows are his stone-cold, emotionless eyes, fitting for a ruthless gangster like him. He gives quite the Death Glare several times during the course of his story arc.
- Invisible Monsters: Limp Bizkit's ability allows Sports Maxx to summon invisible zombies.
- Lack of Empathy: Not only is he completely remorseless of Gloria's murder, he outright blames her for sticking her nose into his business even though she was just at a bad place at the worst possible time.
- Leave No Witnesses: In stark contrast to some of the Neighborhood-Friendly Gangsters of Golden Wind, Maxx has no hesitation on eliminating potential eyewitnesses.
- My Death Is Just the Beginning: Ermes succeeds in killing him, but he comes back as a zombie thanks to his Stand and tries to take revenge on her.
- Necromancer: Limp Bizkit raises the dead as invisible zombies. It can also reanimate body parts, such as DIO's bone Pucci told Maxx to reanimate.
- Our Zombies Are Different: His Stand allows him to bring back the dead as invisible, inaudible zombies — with super strength and the ability to walk on walls to boot. This ability can bring back taxidermies, corpses, and even Maxx himself shortly after he gets killed. When the zombies get hurt or killed, the damage is reflected back to the original bodies they were animated from; after Ermes kills the bird zombie Maxx brought to life, the taxidermied bird gets destroyed as well.
- Pet the Dog: "Dog" might be an overstatement considering that Pucci is no saint himself, but to Maxx, who is completely unaware of Whitesnake's identity, he appears as nothing more than the courteous chaplain of the prison. He treats him considerably well and polite, even though it could be just a front for him getting paroled.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: He's pretty foul-mouthed, even considering the overall setting, using many instances of the f word as well as referring to women as "bitches".
- Small Role, Big Impact: Though Maxx is only a minor villain in a grander scheme of things and disposed of pretty quickly, it's thanks to his Limp Bizkit Stand that Pucci is able to have DIO's bone revived and having Whitesnake fused with it, granting him C-Moon, a Stand essential for obtaining Heaven. This makes him definitely the most significant antagonist in Stone Ocean right after Pucci himself.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Sports Max" rather than "Maxx".
- Taxidermy Is Creepy: A hobby he picked up in prison that rather unsubtly foreshadows his new power.
- Token Motivational Nemesis: Subverted, in fact. He seems pretty straight as an example for Ermes, the reason she entered the prison in the first place and killed by her shortly after he's introduced, but his Stand's ability turned out to be really important to Pucci's ultimate goal.
- Tomato in the Mirror: After the main characters defeated the alligator zombie Maxx brought to life, Ermes notices that the sewer pipe she trapped Maxx in has been broken through. Cut to Maxx walking in the jail halls, feeling tired and thirsty but managing to make it out. He tries bribing a guard and flirting with a girl, but he gets completely ignored — it wasn't until he tries and fails to inject drugs into his arm that he realizes he's already drowned in the pipe, and that he got reanimated as an invisible zombie too. The "thirsty" feeling he got was actually a craving for brains.
- Unusual Eyebrows: They're circles.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He was told to use his power to revive DIO from his bone. What he brought back turned out to be infinitely more dangerous.
- Villain with Good Publicity: Though he was a notorious criminal outside the walls and constantly under the surveillance of local law enforcement, Maxx operated his criminal activities with the façade of a car dealer and managed to get a more lenient sentence for tax evasion despite being clearly guilty of at least two murders. He also has this façade while working in prison under the passion for botanics and being on good terms with Pucci, despite using prostitutes and drugs underneath it all and still maintaining some of his criminal activities.
- Visible Invisibility: Averted and then played straight. The first half of the Limp Bizkit arc shows the zombies as being completely invisible, even to the audience; Jolyne managed to See the Invisible alligator zombie about to maul her after she splashed blood on its face. The second half of the arc does away with this and depicts the zombies as translucent to the audience, but still completely invisible to the main characters.
Kenzō (Stand: Dragon's Dream)
Voiced by: Tamotsu Nishiwaki (All-Star Battle)
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 martial art known as "fengshui assassination".
He is named after the fashion brand Kenzo, while his Stand is named after one of Thom Brennan's albums.
- All Chinese People Know Kung-Fu: Kenzō is directly inspired by Chinese influences, complete with Dragon's Dream being modeled after a Chinese dragon, and he's a master of fengshui.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He's quite the oddball, and there's multiple gags where his Stand actively helps his opponents as much as him, but he's still able to come closer than most to winning.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: Kenzō has long and prominent eyebrows initially before they're burnt off by being electrocuted by the electric chair intended to kill off F.F.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: His Stand is the embodiment of his skill in fengshui assassination and naturally developed after 40 years of martial arts training.
- Cult: He used to lead one, complete with celebrity spokespeople.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: He's the former leader of a suicide cult who was seen as a messiah by his followers, making Kenzō an obvious parallel to real-life suicide cults like Jonestown and Heaven's Gate. He's also a firm believer of pseudoscience, considering he uses "urine therapy" as a means of maintaining health despite no scientific evidence existing to back it up, as well as using Feng Shui based assassination technique that determines "lucky and unlucky" spots. These traits, combined with the fact that he ran said cult back in 1960s, make Kenzō an obvious reference to the hippie subculture, as well; specifically the darker sides of the era, like Charles Manson's "family" whose members all followed their own egotistical Messianic Archetype.
- Dreadlock Warrior: While not as noticeable as his Pointy Ears, his white hair is styled in dreadlocks and is a skilled martial artists. The hair does get destroyed when he's electrocuted via F.F.'s clever thinking.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: He doesn't understand why all of the other inmates at Green Dolphin Street Prison, even the child molesters, consider him to be scum and refuse to associate with him. He ended up being locked up in solitary confinement because he would usually end up in fights as a result.
- Empowered Badass Normal: He was an extremely skilled martial artist long before gaining a Stand.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Not him, but Kenzō has stated that even pedophiles can't stand him.
- Evil Old Folks: A wicked old man who used to run a suicide cult, manipulating over 30 people into burning themselves alive.
- Fantastic Fighting Style: Fengshui assassination mixed with Kenpo.
- Faux Affably Evil: He acts friendly and courteous when he's first introduced, but it's a transparent mask to his truly sadistic personality.
- Hate Sink: Much like with the series' other worst villains, there are no likable or redeeming qualities to Kenzō. He's a self-centered egomaniac with a god complex and an obnoxiously smug sadist who isn't even nearly that charismatic or competent as he thinks.
- Hated by All: Easily rivals the likes of Cioccolata in this department. Absolutely no one wants to be involved with Kenzō, and for a very good reason. Even his supposedly neutral, sentient Stand ability grows tired of him.
- It's All About Me: Ultimately, Kenzō only cares about himself and his status as a messiah who is worshipped by everyone, even planning to start his religious sect from scratch in prison.
- Near-Villain Victory: Seriously wounded F.F. and almost killed Jolyne if Anasui hadn't intervened at the last second.
- Old Master: He's over 70 years old, but he's more than capable of killing countless inmates, and giving F.F. an incredibly tough fight.
- Pointy Ears: His ears are notably elongated, giving him an elven-like appearance.
- Psycho for Hire: Hires himself out as an assassin, and is easily the most ouwardly sadistic of Pucci's hitmen, considering he introduces himself killing dozens of inmates in his vicinity for the sake of it. He even surpasses the likes of Lang Rangler in this regard.
- Religion of Evil: He used to run a cult, which drew many celebrities. Turns out that Kenzō was secretly manipulating them into killing themselves For the Evulz.
- Touch of Death: His favorite trick is "drowning his opponent on land", where he jams a Pressure Point in his opponent's mouth at the 4th cervical spine, and causes the adrenal gland in their kidneys to go into overload while simultaneously expelling most of the oxygen from their lungs so they drown in their own backed up bodily fluids. Somehow.
- Viler New Villain: Kenzō is a former leader of a suicide cult that killed off several celebrities, a sadistic and egotistical man who manages to make the previous psychopaths that were sent after Jolyne look like saints, and is a far less decent man than Enrico Pucci. The other prisoners, including the child molesters, consider him scum and refuse to associate with him.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Though his Stand does benefit him, it ultimately just tells him where to hit and dodge, when he's already a master martial artist. It's also such a Fair-Play Villain that it actively tells the person he's fighting everything about his fighting style, meaning they can use it against him. If it were in the hands of anyone else without the experience he has in abusing it, it would be useless.
- Wild Card: Dragon's Dream intentionally invokes this, even giving advice to Kenzō's opponent during the middle of a fight. All to ensure both sides have equal odds of winning, to its user's great annoyance. Then again, such is the will of fengshui.
D an G (Stand: Yo-Yo Ma)
Ex-cop D an G is an inmate at Green Dolphin Street Prison who Pucci bribes to kill Jolyne and her friends.
His Stand, Yo-Yo Ma, is an automatic Stand with its own sentience separate from D an G. Although it first appears to be helpful, it acts this way to get its target to drop their guard so it can murder them with its highly acidic saliva. It can also safely contain objects in its stomach if it wishes.
He is named after the fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana; his Stand is named after the Chinese cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: In the colored manga, D an G wears a green fur coat with a yellow toga underneath. In the anime, it's a yellow fur coat with the toga being striped pink and purple.
- 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?
- Healing Factor: His Stand was shot in the face several times, punched through the head, had his skull cracked open and sliced open (both times with large portions of the brain being destroyed) — and all of that was regenerated in seconds.
- Implacable Man: Once his Stand is summoned to kill you, it won't quit, until you are dead — it isn't invulnerable, but it can survive pretty much anything, regenerates from grievous injuries in a matter of seconds, and isn't fazed by pain, because it likes being in pain. In the end Anasui had to rewire its brain to stop it, and even after that it still tried to kill them until his user died.Yo-Yo Ma: Do you still not understand? It doesn't matter if you destroy parts of my body, there is no way you can destroy me or stop me. You cannot destroy my target radar or prevent me from attacking Jolyne Cujoh... The only way, you two could have survived... Is if you run away.
- Inelegant Blubbering: In a Call-Back to Joseph's fight with Esidisi, D an G is reduced to this when Diver Down destroys his arm.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Like Yellow Temperance, nothing hurts Yo-Yo Ma. Although in this case, it's just because it's that tough. Only killing D an G will dispatch it.
- Pokémon Speak: Yo-Yo-Ma mumbles out its own name on occasion.
- Powers Do the Fighting: Like most users of Automatic Stands, D an G only needs to tell his Stand who to kill — after that, the Stand does all work by itself. In fact, he spends the majority of the fight between his Stand and the heroes unconscious.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "D&G" after namesake Dolce & Gabanna.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: It doesn't matter how indestructible Yo-Yo Ma is, it's not very combat-capable. Its saliva may be acidic, but this is only problematic to those who decide to trust it, which in a prison setting, is not very likely. It even admits that if you run away, there's nothing it can do to hurt you, and once a person finds D an G and ends him, Yo-Yo Ma no longer has any purpose.
Guccio (Stand: Survivor)
A prisoner charged with sexual assault and theft. He was sent by Pucci to cause a brawl to kill a number of prisoners in maximum security.
His Stand is Survivor, which uses a weak electrical impulse to increase the aggression of anyone nearby, causing them to fight for no reason.
He is named after the clothing line Gucci, while his Stand is named after the American rock band Survivor.
- Blessed with Suck: Aside from how unhelpful his Stand is, it's also actively detrimental to him because he can't control its effects. It's stated that the prior user of Survivor had to basically live as a hermit because when he tried to live in society, people around him tended to be affected by Survivor accidentally, causing fights to the death to break out 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 an G — was nearby, he arranged for Diver Down to activate its power. On Guccio's ribs. In such a way that D an G's own arm was horrifically mangled.
- Gonk: Just look at his face.
- Hate Plague: As noted by DIO, Survivor can't physically attack people and it can't influence their minds in anyway. Its only real power is to make people angry and want to fight with one another.
- Let's You and Him Fight: Survivor incites this.
- Loss of Inhibitions: People affected by Survivor lose their ability to feel pain or fear, meaning that they will start to fight while ignoring normal human limitations and thus push their bodies to perform inhuman feats.
- Personality Powers: It's not made explicit whether Pucci invoked this trope like he did with Miraschon and McQueen, but even while he was a Muggle, fights tended to break out around him.
- Shock and Awe: Survivor sends minuscule electric shocks into a person's brain, sending them into a rage.
- This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: His chapter is where it becomes clear why Pucci has so many weird Stands at his disposal; he packed away anything, just in case, because even the weakest Stand of all should have some time where it's useful. In the case of Survivor, if all you wanted is to get someone inside a maximum security prison killed, preferably by the person's inmates, then getting people to just start fighting each other without any consideration is exactly what you'd want.
- The Unfought: Once the protagonists actually end up face-to-face with Guccio, he doesn't even try to fight; he instead tries to convince them that he is a completely innocent prisoner trapped in the middle of Stand battle shenanigans. Anasui sees right through him and uses Guccio as a human weapon against D an G via some Body Horror. Although it's slightly justified since Survivor can't actually physically attack people.
- 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. It doesn't help you win a fight, because it makes your opponent stronger, and it can't be used to strengthen allies because it makes them so violent that they're a threat to you. Now, compare that with weak-in-the-description, but DEVASTATING-in-practice Stands, like Lovers or Bohemian Rhapsody...
The Sons of DIO
- Elite Mooks: Pucci meets with all of them after he fuses with the Green Baby and forces Jolyne and her friends to leave the prison. Since at this point he had lost control of Whitesnake and couldn't force prisoners to do his bidding, the Sons of DIO antagonize the heroes for the last section of the story before they can properly confront Pucci.
- Evil Brit: By birth, all three of them are half-British through their father DIO. They're also aiding Pucci in his plans to rewrite the universe.
- Extra Parent Conception: Biologically, they have two fathers, due to DIO conceiving them with his head attached to Jonathan's body.
- The Family That Slays Together: Those three young men, having never met each other before, discover that they are half-brothers and work together with Pucci to defeat Jolyne and her crew using their newfound Stands.
- Family Theme Naming: Rikiel notwithstanding, Ungalo, Donatello, their unseen other half-brother Giorno, their father DIO, and their grandfather Dario all have names that end with the letter "o".
- Generation Xerox: Like Giorno before them, DIO's kids have some aspects of their father.
- Ungalo inherits his father's cruelty and hatred for the world, and his hedonistic, lazy attitude is more in line with his grandfather, Dario.
- Rikiel has DIO's resolve, badassery, and admission of worthy opponents, similar to his other father, Jonathan Joestar, and equal to his half-brother, Giorno.
- Donatello is similar to DIO mentally by being ruthless, selfish, and arrogant; bonus points for coming from an abusive family like his father and having blonde hair.
- Jerkass: Two out of the three Sons of DIO represent the worst aspects of their father, namely, his arrogance, selfishness, hatred for the world, and sadism. The other is the noblest of the three and is almost the opposite, embodying DIO's positive traits.
- Meaningful Name: Since DIO means "god" in Italian, it basically means Ungalo, Rikiel, Donatello, and their half-brother Giorno, are the sons of God.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Their Stands are both powerful and devastating, with their area of effect encompassing all of Florida to the whole planet.
- Sorting Algorithm of Evil: Stand Battles while in Green Dolphin Street Prison were mostly one-on-one. The Sons of DIO eschew this altogether and instead confront the heroes in a group.
- Ungalo specifically targets the entire world, and even though we only see Weather Report and Anasui confronting the effects of his stand, the story acknowledges that Jolyne probably was having a battle of her own too.
- Rikiel fights against both Ermes and Jolyne.
- Donatello Versus squares off too against Ermes and Jolyne, but also adds Weather Report to the mix... even though this ends up biting him in the ass.
- There Is Another: Their existence reveals that Giorno was not the only child sired and left behind by DIO.
- Terrible Trio: Three brothers who fight on the side of a priest who is seeking to rewrite reality in their father's name.
- Undying Loyalty: Subverted. Despite Pucci being an extremely charismatic man, only Rikiel supports him out of gratitude and is willing to die for him. Ungalo just wants to make the world suffer, and Donatello Versus betrays him after considering himself as the only one worthy of "Heaven" as the heir of DIO.
- Unknown Relative: None of them were aware they shared the same father and were half-brothers until Pucci gathers them together. They also never find out that they have a fourth half-brother living in Italy.
Ungalo (Stand: Bohemian Rhapsody)
One of the four sons of DIO and a nasty-tempered drug addict.
His Stand, Bohemian Rhapsody, causes stories to come into reality, fictional or historic. Those who empathize with a character of a story are fated to experience all the things that they did.
He is named after Emanuel Ungaro, and his Stand is named after the Queen song "Bohemian Rhapsody".
- Asshole Victim: You can't feel sorry for Ungalo after he fell into a coma out of pure despair. Out of DIO's kids, he was the worst of them as he wreaked havoc across Earth out of cruel joy. While he did have such a garbage life, that doesn't justify all the damage done and innocents presumably killed in his Stand's rampage.
- Bastard Bastard: He's inherited his father's worst traits. Specifically, sadism and a hatred for the world.
- Call-Back: His brother Giorno had a Stand named after a Prince song, while Ungalo's Stand is named after a Queen song.
- Despair Event Horizon: After Weather Report manages to use Bohemian Rhapsody's Reality Warping powers to negate itself, Ungalo was overcome with despair at the thought of regressing back into his previous drug-addled life and lost the will to live, falling into a vegetative state.
- Dhampyr: In the same vein as the rest of DIO's sons, he's technically this, but has no vampiric traits.
- Facial Markings: He has a little red marking shaped like a "u" under his left eye.
- Freudian Excuse: Possibly. When searching for women to bear his children, DIO deliberately chose ones that were selfish, abusive and uncaring because he thought they would give birth to strong-willed offspring, implying that Ungalo and his half-brothers didn't have great childhoods (at least, we know that Giorno didn't).
- Generation Xerox: He ended up inheriting the worst parts of DIO: a desire for revenge against the entire world for the crappy life he had, and his father's general sadism. At the same time, his hedonistic lifestyle as a junkie and a slob serves more of a dead-ringer for his alcoholic grandfather, Dario Brando.
- Gonk: He has eyes broadly spread apart on a flat looking face and prominent teeth, leading to an unpleasant looking face, which drastically contrast with his more conventionally handsome half brothers.
- 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. Ungalo'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...)
- Implacable Man: The creations can't be destroyed by any means. If hit, they'll only fold like paper and reform back into place as Anasui found out with the Mother Goat, and won't stop till the roles of the book come to the fruition.
- Mysterious Past: While some information is known about the backstories of his brothers Rikiel and Donatello, nothing is shown about Ungalo's past or how he became addicted to drugs.
- Never My Fault: Ultimately, he's shown to be a man who doesn't look after himself, refuses to address his weaknesses and blames the rest of the world for his failings.
- Public Domain Character: What most of the characters that come out from their books are from. This was necessary as there was no way in hell Araki was going to get anyone copyrighted to appear.note
- Reality Warper: Pretty much his Stand's power. It turns its victims into the character they identify with most from their favorite story and follows that character's story to the letter. One can run from it but it's pretty much an inevitability as the story will catch up to you regardless. For example, Anasui identifies with the wolf in the fairy tale, The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids to which at the end of that story the wolf was cut up to free the goat children he ate, stuffed with rocks and drowned in a river by the Mother Goat. Anasui tried putting distance and barriers to keep the Mother Goat from chasing him but the walls/doors peeled away like a storybook page allowing the goat to continue her pursuit. Even if it's something like a moving vehicle, it didn't help for when Anasui tried to open the car door he grappled onto, it only acted as a portal for the Mother Goat to jump through to attack him.
- 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.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Ungaro" after Emanuel Ungaro.
- 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.
- Unskilled, but Strong: His Stand is among the most powerful in the entire franchise. Being able to make fictional characters real, much less characters that can be created by anyone, much less on a worldwide basis, much less their Implacable Man and You Can't Fight Fate traits, is so brokenly versatile that any smart wielder of it could be ruling the world in about a week, such as by creating characters to pursue and kill specific people. But Ungalo is a dimwitted and lazy druggie, so he just lets it run wild without a care, leading to him being Hoist by His Own Petard.
- Weaksauce Weakness: For all his worldwide spread reality warping might, his Stand is defeated by a strategy that resembles something out of Captain Underpants.
- While Rome Burns: As Bohemian Rhapsody wreaks havoc across planet Earth, Ungalo watches the rampage in sadistic glee, sipping on some champagne high above in an airplane.
- 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. That goes for the biography of historical characters too like Vincent Van Gogh who Weather Report admired...until he remembered that Van Gogh both cut off his ear and shot himself in the head (though both of these are erroneous, he actually cut off the lobe and shot himself in the chest). Even when he tried to keep away from the gun that killed Van Gogh, just being near the thing caused it to discharge and nearly killed him.
Rikiel (Stand: Sky High)
Voiced by: Takashi Kondo (All-Star Battle)
One of the four sons of DIO. Not the most self-confident of people, and arguably only assisting Pucci out of gratitude.
His Stand is called Sky High, which allows him to attract and control cryptids called rods (sky fish) that absorb body heat as food.
He is named after Sonia Rykiel, and his Stand is named after the Jigsaw song "Sky High".
- Animal Motifs: The design of his clothing is patterned after a cow hide.
- Anti-Villain: Easily the most sympathetic of the three sons of DIO that help out Pucci. He only does so out of gratitude to Pucci for helping him out with realizing his Stand ability, not out of Power High, but because it made him a Cosmic Plaything.
- He's also a Graceful Loser who reveals information because they managed to beat him.
- Artistic License Biology: Let us count the ways!
- 1. Rods don't actually exist, and are simply photo/video artifacts of capturing insects flying in frame faster than the camera's shutter speed.
- 2. Rods apparently feed on body heat by flying close to other animals.
- 3. This feeding shuts down any kind of bodily function at the locations they fly near.
- Badass Boast: Makes a pretty badass one during his fight against Jolyne. Notable for also being a "No More Holding Back" Speech.Rikiel: I overcame my own heart! I'll never panic again... I'm going to reclaim my life, with my own hands! I'M APOLLO 11!!!
- Bastard Bastard: Though he's more sympathetic than the other two sons of DIO in this part, he's still ultimately a villain unlike Giorno.
- The Beastmaster: With the cryptids called "rods."
- Because You Were Nice to Me: Helps Pucci out of gratitude for helping him realize his Stand ability.
- Given he was conceived with Jonathan's body and has his DNA as well, him lighting himself on fire against Jolyne is also a call back to Jonathan as well.
- Like his brother Giorno, Rikiel shows powerful resolve when he fights, has a Stand that generates creatures to fight for him, and had his life dramatically changed after an encounter with a man whose help inspired him to become a stronger person.
- Cleavage Window: His outfit sports one, much like Giorno.
- Cosmic Plaything: He certainly felt like this, at least until Pucci revealed why things kept falling flat for him. It was actually his semi-dormant Stand constantly attracting heat-sucking rods to him.
- Determinator: When confronted with Jolyne, who set herself on fire, he does the same to gain an advantage, and when he is landed with a mortal blow, he decides to dull his pain receptors to do a Taking You with Me on her.
- Dhampyr: In the same vein as the rest of DIO's sons, he's technically this, but has no vampiric traits.
- Generation Xerox: While Giorno may have the charisma and good perception, Ungalo their father's sadism, and Donatello the It's All About Me attitude of their father, Rikiel inherits their father's habit of Determinator and hardcore badassery; just look how he puts himself on fire in order to able to fight Jolyne and later tries to take her down with him once he's mortally wounded. He also inherited the rare positive trait of DIO — that is, the ability to acknowledge a Worthy Opponent, as he tells Jolyne out of respect for her skills. These traits are also reminiscent of his biological father Jonathan Joestar.
- Graceful Loser: After his loss, he's more than willing to spill everything he knows, including the fact that Weather Report is Pucci's twin brother.
- Hair Color Dissonance: From looking at the colored manga, it's difficult to tell if his hair is meant to be black, pink, or both.
- Like Father, Unlike Son: Rikiel also contrasts with his father DIO in some aspects. For example, while DIO sees humanity with contempt and rejected his by turning into a vampire, Rikiel has nothing but respect for humanity and its progress, praising the Apollo 11 mission as an example.
- Nervous Wreck: After a lifetime of being a Cosmic Plaything, he's extremely prone to constant panic attacks. He does get a degree of confidence upon getting control of his Stand.
- Noble Demon: Out of the Sons of DIO, Rikiel is the noblest of the trio. He lacks the sadism and negative qualities of the other two. Instead, Rikiel embodies the positive aspects of his father, making him similar to Jonathan Joestar and more akin to his brother, Giorno. If anything, had they not been enemies and met on better terms, Rikiel could have been an ally to Jolyne, if not a secondary protagonist.
- Odd Name Out: He's the only son of DIO whose name doesn't end with the letter "o".
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Rykiel" after Sonia Rykiel.
- Weirdness Magnet: It attracted rods in his case, which led to being a Cosmic Plaything.
- Worthy Opponent: Considers Jolyne this for beating him, so he tells her out of gratitude.
Donatello Versus (Stand: Under World)
Voiced by: Eiji Miyashita (All-Star Battle)
One of the four sons of DIO, and the most like him in mentality.
His Stand is Under World, which allows him to read and animate "memories" in the ground; such as trapping Jolyne and Ermes in a plane crash from 2005, viewing the memory of his opponent's plans, and even pulling objects from the past to use as tools.
He is named after Donatella Versace and the fashion brand Versus, and his Stand is named after the electronic music band Underworld.
- Alliterative Family: With his father DIO and grandfather Dario.
- Bastard Bastard: Not as bad as Ungalo, but he's pretty selfish and incredibly ruthless.
- Big Bad Wannabe: As DIO's son, Donatello desires to supplant Pucci as his father's successor. Unfortunately for him, he not only gets defeated before the climax of the story, but also gets used as a Human Shield by Pucci as a reward for his treachery.
- Chest Insignia: Under World has a Star of Life on the right side of its chest. Ironic, considering the Stand's powers and the user's personality (although the Star of Life motif may have been born unconsciously, as Donatello was bedridden in the hospital when he awakened to his Stand).
- Continuity Nod: Given all the parallels that exist between him and his father, giving Donatello the Stand Under World seems to have been a very deliberate choice.
- Dhampyr: In the same vein as the rest of DIO's sons, he's technically this, but has no vampiric traits.
- Generation Xerox: Of the four children, including Giorno, he's the most similar to DIO in personality, having the same background with an abusive father, as well as the It's All About Me attitude. He even does a Kick the Dog moment in the hopes of causing the heroes to undergo the Despair Event Horizon, only to awaken The Hero's Berserk Button.
- Improbable Weapon User: At one point, he uses the "memory" of the Miami Dolphins to attack the heroes.
- It's All About Me: With an Turn Out Like His Father type of justification, he feels he should be in charge, since he's DIO's son, so the role of controlling "Heaven" is rightfully his.
- Jerkass: As mentioned, he's incredibly ruthless and desires to be happier than everyone else.
- Kick the Dog: See Sadistic Choice below.
- More Despicable Minion: Pucci is a Well-Intentioned Extremist, but Donatello is selfish, ruthless, and power hungry, just like his father. He betrays Pucci and is willing to do anything for power, including trying to kill children.
- Precision F-Strike: He tells Pucci to... well... shut the fuck up so he can focus on his fight with Jolyne. When Pucci asks him if he's talking to him, Donatello changes the subject. It happens again later in the same chapter; this time, Donatello doesn't bother changing the subject nor apologizes. These moments are a glimmer of his true personality.
- Pre-Final Boss: The last enemy Stand user the heroes face before Pucci himself and the second to last in the entire first continuity of the series. And fittingly so, because he is DIO's son and the most like him, and the only one to rival with Pucci as his true successor.
- 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 — Donatello makes three real Littlest Cancer Patients drop into those seats so that Jolyne and Ermes must kill them to save themselves. Ermes 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 Ermes' 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 Donatello, who is quickly arrested for theft. When Donatello 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 Donatello and Stanley in this respect is that Donatello's prison is much worse.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Many originally thought his last name was "Versace" like the fashion designer Donatella Versace, even though his surname was pronounced "Versus", but it turns out it's actually named after the Versace fashion line Versus.
- The Starscream: As far as Donatello'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.
- He justifies it as he's his son and that he should inherit his father's ambitions, and considering how similar they are in personality, it's not far off to see why he'd think this way.
- A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: During his introduction, Donatello was quiet and reserved. He did what Pucci ordered him to do and needed help standing up from his chair, initially appearing weak and obedient. In the following chapters, Donatello's true personality shows he's ruthless, selfish, and arrogant like his father, DIO.
- 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 Under World's unearthed memories until it finishes, so you'd better find some way to circumvent whatever bad things Donatello has in mind for you that the memory won't interdict.
DIO (Stand: The World)
Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (TV anime JP), Patrick Seitz (TV anime EN)
A posthumous character, DIO is the lifelong enemy of the Joestar Bloodline, and the closest friend of Enrico Pucci. He is responsible for teaching Pucci about the Heaven plan, and entrusts him with one of his bones, which requires 36 souls of sinners and the fourteen phrases from his diary in order to make the plan work.
The Green Baby (Stand: Green, Green Grass of Home)
This bizarre creature is actually a homunculus of DIO generated from one of his bones through Limp Bizkit's effects and absorbing the spirit of Survivor's victims. It's an integral part of Pucci's plan, as it will cause the first phase of Whitesnake turning into Made In Heaven.
It has a Stand, Green, Green Grass of Home, (named after a Porter Wagoner song) which weaponizes Zeno's dichotomy paradox by continuously shrinking anything that approaches the Green Baby down to infinitesimally nothing.
- Cloning Blues: It's made from one of DIO's bones, which took a life of its own.
- Enfant Terrible: It is a homunculus of DIO, even if it doesn't seem anything like him. It's still a major factor for Pucci's main plan, and ultimately ends up joining with Pucci to evolve his Stand.
- Fun Size: While it doesn't seem to be actively malicious, it doesn't like it when someone approaches them. That's where the Stand comes in; its influence causes those who approach it (and don't know the passwords like Pucci does) to reduce to half their size once they close half the distance between themselves and it. And this happens again...and again... and again...
- Fusion Dance: After Sports Maxx animated the bone's spirit, it proceeded to absorb the spirits of those who died in the brawl Survivor incited. 36 unrepentant convicts' worth of spirit. That turned it into the homunculus. Then, after Pucci proved himself by reciting all the proper passwords, the homunculus and Green, Green Grass of Home fuses with Whitesnake, creating C-Moon.
- Humanoid Abomination: Not an openly violent one, but it is a green skinned humanoid that can shrink whatever chases it except ones who know the Magical Incantation.
- Magical Incantation: Not quite magic, but a series of secret words Pucci needs to say to the Green Baby as part of DIO's plan.Pucci: Spiral Staircase. Rhinoceros Beetle. Desolation Row. Fig Tart. Rhinoceros Beetle. Via Dolorosa. Rhinoceros Beetle. Singularity Point. Giotto. Angel. Hydrangea. Rhinoceros Beetle. Singularity Point. Secret Emperor.
- Our Homunculi Are Different: The Green Baby is a homunculus created by the abilities of several Stands inputted into one of DIO's bones.
Voiced by: Hidenori Takahashi (TV anime JP), Michael Schwalbe (TV anime EN)
A lawyer who is hired as Jolyne's defense attorney. He advises Jolyne to plead guilty by suggesting that the judge might lighten her sentence. In actuality, he's been bribed by Romeo to frame Jolyne for the latter's crimes, thus sentencing her to 15 years in prison.
- Amoral Attorney: He accepts Romeo's bribe to frame Jolyne and put her in jail. Later, it is revealed that he also conspired with Johngalli A., allowing her to be imprisoned in the same facility Johngalli is in so that the latter can finish her off.
- Asshole Victim: After learning how much of a scum he truly is and acquiring Stone Free on the same day, Jolyne uses her abilities to get him into a crash.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: Under normal circumstances, one could say he was just doing his job and that Jolyne strangling him was unwarranted, but considering he took a bribe from Romeo to frame Jolyne for everything and get her in Johngalli A.'s sights, he got what was coming to him.
- No Name Given: He isn't named in the story.
- Pointy Ears: His ears are pointy and jut out towards the sides of his head for some reason, despite his appearance looking quite normal otherwise.
- Sinister Suffocation: As revenge for landing her in prison, Jolyne strangles his neck with Stone Free as he's driving, causing him to panic and swerve into the concrete barrier, killing him.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He only appears in the beginning of the story and dies shortly after. However, not only did he cause Jolyne to be imprisoned, but he was also the one that delivered Jotaro's pendant to her, which unbeknownst to him allowed Jolyne to awaken her Stand power.
- Symbol Motif Clothing: Downplayed compared to most examples in the series, but he wears a tie with a prominent question mark motif.
Voiced by: Gakuto Kajiwara (TV anime JP), Clifford Chapin (TV anime EN)
Jolyne's boyfriend at the beginning of the story. Framed her for a hit and run.
- Bastard Boyfriend: Blames Jolyne for a hit and run to save his own skin.
- The Bus Came Back: Shows up in the first few chapters only to be briefly come back 111 chapters into the part.
- Character Development: His conscience ultimately got the better of him. When Jolyne finds him later on in the story, he not only gives her money, but also access to a helicopter, while putting the police on the wrong trail.
- Dirty Coward: See above.
- Pet the Dog: Gives the police a false location for the group, giving them a chance to make a safe getaway.
Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame (TV anime JP), Caitlin Glass (TV anime EN)
The mother of Jolyne, and Jotaro's ex-wife. She is responsible for raising Jolyne alone in the absence of her husband. It is unknown when or where she met Jotaro, as well as her location during the events of Stone Ocean. According to Jolyne, she is an Italian-American and the only person who is allowed to call Jolyne "JoJo".
- Absurdly Youthful Mother: Doesn't look that much older than Jolyne.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: The colored manga gives her brown hair and green eyes, while the anime adaptation gives her blonde hair (the same color as the blonde parts of Jolyne's hair) and light blue eyes.
- Anime Hair: Her hair curves to the side. Averted in a flashback where she has normal long hair.
- Call-Back: When Jolyne was arrested at 14 for stealing a car, her mother protested that it had to be a mistake because her daughter would never do that. Her mother-in-law Holly had the same reaction when Jotaro got himself arrested at 17 to contain the "evil spirit" possessing his body.
- Doting Parent: Implied. Her and Jolyne's dialogue suggests that she deeply cares for Jolyne but isn't strict enough, hence why Jolyne repeatedly gets into trouble with the law.
- Mama Didn't Raise No Criminal: In a flashback when Jolyne was arrested at 14 for stealing a car, her mom can be heard pleading with the police, "This has to be a mistake! My Jolyne would never...!"
- Minor Major Character: She is the (ex-)wife of one series protagonist and the mother of another, but has little direct impact on the plot. We don't even know her name.
- Outliving One's Offspring: Most likely lived through Made In Heaven's destruction and recreation of universe, unlike Jolyne.
- Posthumous Character: In Jolyne, Fly High with GUCCI, subverted in that it's actually a dream.
- Prone to Tears: Jolyne describes her as a crybaby.
- Unnamed Parent: She's never referred to by name.
Ermes' sister. Killed by Sports Maxx.
The sister of Enrico Pucci and Wes.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: She started dating her long-lost older sibling. Her other brother found out about this and hired a private detective to break them up. Said detective turns out to be a member of the KKK and kills her boyfriend/sibling for having a black father, causing her to kill herself.
- BrotherSister Incest: She doesn't live to find out about it, though.
- Driven to Suicide: Kills herself after seeing Weather supposedly die.
- Morality Chain: To both Weather and Pucci. It was her death that ultimately drove both of them over the edge and towards their Start of Darkness.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Her death indirectly caused Pucci to become DIO's disciple, and therefore, kickstarted the plot of the part.
- Posthumous Character: Dead long before the story's start.
Note that the epilogue characters are Walking Spoilers, so all spoilers are unmarked in their folders.
- Alternate Self: Implied to be Jolyne's soul living a different life after Pucci's defeat.
- Birthmark of Destiny: Shares the same star-shaped birthmark of the Joestar line that Jolyne has.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: Due to all the sacrifice of Jolyne and her companions, Irene ultimately has a much happier life than she did, having a better relationship with her father, never going to prison and even unknowingly reunites with the counterparts of Jolyne's companions.
- Happily Married: To Annakiss, though not officially. Her and Annakiss are going to her father to get his blessing to make it official.
- Meaningful Name: The name Irene is derived from eirene, the Ancient Greek word for "peace," something that Jolyne's soul is finally experiencing in this timeline.
- Nice Girl: The first thing that she does is give Emporio a jacket to shelter him from the rain. She also insists to Anakiss to pick up a hitchhiker (actually an alternate version of Weather Report).
- Walking Spoiler: Trying to even talk about her reveals the outcome of Stone Ocean as a whole.
- Alternate Self: To Anasui in the same vein as Irene.
- Good Counterpart: He appears to lack Anasui's Ax-Crazy and stalkerish tendencies, being a lot more chill overall.
- Happily Married: To Irene, albeit not officially. They will be if they get the blessing of Irene's father.
- Walking Spoiler: Ditto with Irene, because his existence also reveals the outcome of Stone Ocean.
