Green Dolphin Street Prison
- 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 and 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 a Stand Arrow shard. Instead, Pucci gave them their abilities from a collection of Stand 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. The only consistent feature is the "G.D. St JAIL" mark on their backs denoting them as prisoners.
- 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.
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), Tomoe Hanba (Child, TV anime JP), Anjali Kunapaneni (Child, 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.
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.
- Adam Smith Hates Your Guts: Gwess' info on the prison is genuinely good and helpful, but the problem is that her prices are staggering, typically being $200 minimum.
- 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.
- Adaptation Expansion: The anime places more emphasis on her being a Knowledge Broker, with her letting Jolyne and F.F. know, for a friend's discount, where to find publicized information on Gloria Costello's death.
- 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, her lipstick is patterned to look like a beak, and her hair sticks up at the back like tail feathers. She's also in prison, which makes her a "jailbird", and she's also off her nut, which makes her "cuckoo."
- 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.
- 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..."
- Breaking Old Trends: Gwess at first glance looks like she would follow the series tradition of a Warm-Up Boss who would be defeated only to become an ally to the protagonistnote . 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.
- Call-Back: Much like Tamami Kobayashi from Diamond is Unbreakable, Gwess appears at first to be 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.
- Caught Monologuing: How she's ultimately defeated. After tricking Jolyne into crossing the gun point and unshrinking her so she can't come back, Gwess stands directly in front of locked door to gloat about how Jolyne deserves it for rejecting her love. This earns her a fist to the face and subsequent beatdown from the newly named Stone Free.
- 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.
- Composite Character: She has Formaggio's shrinking Stand and Cioccolata's habit of saying, "Good, good, good, good!"
- 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 and the Viz manga localization name it G.G. Dolls instead.
- Everyone Has Standards: Beatdown from Jolyne aside, Gwess is very accommodating when she believes Jolyne has severe amnesia, not showing annoyance when she gets the same questions asked for two days straight, offers to get her food when hers is partially eaten, and tries to remind her to write things down.
- 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.
- Gratuitous English: "Okay!" and "Very, very good!"
- 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.
- Incredible Shrinking Man: Goo Goo Dolls inflicts this on others; causing them to shrink to the point of being able to fit inside Gwess' pocket.
- 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.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Downplayed, as she's still not pleasant in the long run, but she shows genuine sympathy towards Jolyne seemingly having amnesia.
- Knowledge Broker: She knows nearly everything that goes down in Green Dolphin Street Prison and what to find in each facility, but will only tell so for a price. Exorbitant prices, at that.
- 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.
- 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.
- Pet the Dog:
- After Jolyne gets affected by Jail House Lock and is "properly" diagnosed with chronic amnesia, Gwess shows much more empathy towards her, with her reminding Jolyne to write down what she's thinking, saying she can get herself another meal with Jolyne's meal ticket rather than forcing Jolyne to get another meal for her after accidentally eating hers, and outright wishing Jolyne to get well soon.
- In the anime adaptation, she lets Jolyne and F.F. know where to find publications of Gloria Costello's death, and offers Jolyne a "friend's discount" rather than her usual prices.
- Pokémon Speak: Goo Goo Dolls constantly says "goo, goo". In the English dub, it says "cry, cry".
- Power Incontinence: Goo Goo Dolls' shrinking power weakens as it strays farther from its victims, allowing them to regrow and turn to normal once they're sufficiently far enough. This is actually weaponized by Gwess; she tricked Jolyne into sneaking into the prison's control room, and then she leaves the scene, causing Jolyne's body to regrow while she was trying to make a getaway.
- 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.
- 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.
- Starter Villain: She's the first foe Jolyne faces, and ends up being the one to first show what Stands are and that all of them have their own names to match a user's aspirations.
- 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.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Cheese penne. She gets annoyed when Jolyne eats hers while under the amnesiac effect of Jail House Lock.
- 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. In the anime, it's white, possibly to differentiate him from Diavolo and Anasui.
- 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.
- Composite Character: His basic characterization is reminiscent of N'Doul (a Blind Weaponmaster fanatically devoted to DIO), while his Stand combines aspects of Hol Horse's, Mista's (the ability to redirect bullets), and Narancia's (the radar).
- 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: He is blind, but he's 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.
- Small Role, Big Impact: While he's one of the earliest antagonists in the story, it's thanks to Johngalli A. that Jolyne was imprisoned in the first place, him being responsible for staging the hit and run incident she was accused of.
- 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.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: The reveals that he was the one responsible for getting Jolyne arrested, he's one of the last remaining disciples of DIO, and he made an alliance with Pucci to take Jotaro out all alert Jolyne that there are people in Green Dolphin Street Prison who are actively out to get her.
- Would Hurt a Child: Although he (or at least the version in the dream) 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.
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 McQueen'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.
- On one side, 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.
- Downplayed on the other with the lack of Memory disc removing the complete identity of the person, which implies he's normally a Jerkass that's willing to steal from prisoners while they sleep.
- 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's 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.
- Ignored Epiphany: After Ermes tells him off, he appears to have been legitimately moved by her words... until he says that he is mostly glad to find somebody to bring down with him.
- Improbable Hairstyle: McQueen'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, McQueen 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. Whitesnake even gives him a "The Reason You Suck" Speech pointing this out:Whitesnake: Hey, McQueen, you are truly evil and a misanthrope, aren't you? You worm your way through this world with no animosity, and worst of all, you don't think you're causing anyone any trouble. You also insist on playing the victim; although you have no interest in others, you're hoping that someone will come along one of these days and save you. You're what's referred to in certain circles as "the worst"; dragging others down with your misfortune is a truly evil approach... which makes me have to say I'm quite fond of you, McQueen. If you were to come across my enemy as you're moving about this prison, you'd be sure to get rid of them for me like a true friend; isn't that right, McQueen?
- 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.
- Last-Name Basis: Pucci, through Whitesnake, always refers to him by his last name of McQueen; never referring to him as Thunder.
- 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: McQueen 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.
- Shut Up, Kirk!: As soon as he realizes Ermes is falsely pitying him, he sets the record to her straight.McQueen: You really wanna give them to me?
Ermes: Of course! I made a promise, didn't I? But, listen. Everybody hates when the weekend is over and Monday's right around the corner. But we all think, "A fun Saturday is waiting for me at the other end of this tunnel," and live our lives, because we know it's not always going to be a Monday.
McQueen: The day I got arrested was a Saturday.
McQueen: It's strange. You're saying something good that gives me courage, which I appreciate, but maybe you're using all those fine-sounding words because you're trying to save yourself, right?
Ermes: Well... it's part of it.
- 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.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Highway to Hell seems to be one of Steely Dan's Stand, Lovers, from Part 3, being a Stand that can make its opponents suffer the same injuries its user does. Unlike Dan, who was a massive coward who only used Lovers as a deterrent to get the heroes to back off, McQueen really is suicidal and crazy enough to make the most out of his Stand's abilities.
- 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. McQueen'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, but mostly because he's glad to find someone to bring down with him.
- Verbal Tic: McQueen has a language tic and often elongates the words he pronounces.
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 industrial 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.
- Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: She is a prison inmate with a hairstyle that looks like jail bars.
- Barely-Changed Dub Name: Her Stand is renamed "Mary Lynn Manson" in the English dub (which is honestly pretty clever).
- 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!"/"OKAY!".
- 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.
- Composite Character: Combines aspects of Tamami Kobayashi (a Stand that inflicts pain based on the target's guilt) and the D'Arby Brothers (defeating opponents via gambling games).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 their powers in increasingly ludicrous ways without being punished at all, likely due to their 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 them 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".
- The 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.
- Stupid Evil: She gets Jolyne and F.F. in a pitch black room to have them fail the ball catch and then takes the moment to gloat about it, which allowed F.F. to find her and deliver a shot to her hand.
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.
- Arm Cannon: Jumpin' Jack Flash's centrifuges are essentially a pair of wrist-mounted machine guns, with an assortment of metal objects as ammo.
- 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.
- Call-Back: This isn't the first time Araki referenced the song "Jumpin' Jack Flash" in JoJo; in Stardust Crusaders, one of the special attacks that Avdol can make Magician's Red unleash is named "Crossfire Hurricane".
- Can't Take Criticism: What set him off for murdering his professor was him constantly irritated at her looking down at him.
- 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.
- 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.
- Morphic Resonance: Lang's suit closely resembles his Stand as they share the same arm designs and the rocket chest symbol. It could imply that Lang's a natural Stand user instead of an artificial one made by Whitesnake.
- 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 McQueen 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. Downplayed in that he otherwise has no immunity to his powers: the vacuum bubbles his ability creates are just as lethal to him as they are to his targets, something Jolyne uses against him to devastating effect (see Eye Scream above).
- 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. Then 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 living. Sounds like a perfect ability for a sadistic mobster who leaves no potential eyewitness alive.
- Barely-Changed Dub Name: His Stand is named Limp "Viscuit" instead of "Bizkit" in the anime's English dub.
- 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.
- Break Them by Talking: After recognizing Ermes, he tries to torment her by claiming that Gloria died by her own actions. Except, since he had already became an inaudible zombie, his words didn't have any effect.
- But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Averted; he clearly recognizes a picture of Gloria that Ermes hangs on the wall, and when Ermes shows up to confront him, he immediately puts two and two together.
- Chekhov's Gun: At first, it seems like there's no reason for him to take up taxidermy as a hobby, until Limp Bizkit activates and revives the corpses of the bird and alligator he's stuffed.
- 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 in dirty wastewater, and the second time, after Maxx becomes a zombie, Ermes pummels him 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.
- Dirty Coward: For someone as fearsome and terrifying as him, Maxx doesn't actively participate in confrontation unless his opponents are directly at his mercy. He brutally curb stomps a tied up man to death in the flashback and the anime shows Maxx watching from behind as one of his lackeys strangles Gloria to death, preferring not to dirty his hands personally. When cornered by Ermes, Maxx tries to beg for his life, albeit in a very spiteful tone of voice. After being reanimated as a zombie, Maxx takes full advantage of the invisibility and tries to corner Ermes with a horde of reanimated corpses, gloating how he intends to brutally murder her. Finally, when Ermes gets the upper hand, Maxx falls into a sense of panic, realizing a bit too late he's done for.
- 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, Limp Bizkit, is rechristened as "Flaccid Pancake". However, the anime's English localization opted for "Limp Viscuit" instead.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Amazingly. When he thinks a male inmate is attempting to feel up a female inmate without paying for it, he beats him up and steals his stuff.
- 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 the dead as invisible 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.
- Functional Addict: Possibly. From what we can see, Maxx has an addiction to heroin, but seems to operate with the same calculative ruthlessness as he did outside the prison walls. Although, it certainly doesn't help him with his truly sadistic personality, either.
- The Ghost: Limp Bizkit is one of few named Stands which doesn't appear on-screen at all, with the reader only being shown what it can do. This is most likely intentional, as the zombies it can revive are completely invisible.
- Guttural Growler: Especially in the English dub where Maxx speaks with a throaty rasp.
- Hate Sink: Maxx quite effectively ruined Ermes' life for good by murdering her sister Gloria, the only one who came closest to being her actual mother, and driving their father morbidly ill in the process. He has no remorse either; blaming Gloria for her own death and smugly rubbing it in Ermes' face before attempting to devour her alive. Maxx is so despicable, he gets killed by Ermes — twice, in fact. He later appears to Ermes in Under World's vision long after he's already dead, once again taunting her.
- 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.
- Jerkass: Murderously sadistic, openly calls any woman he meets a bitch, and cruelly rubs Gloria's death in her sister's face. Yeah, real charmer, this guy.
- Jury and Witness Tampering: After being arrested, he rigged his own trial so that he'll only get a sentence of five years for tax evasion and not conviction for Gloria's murder.
- Karmic Death: Two-fold. First, he's drowned inside a pipe, which is what he had done to Ermes's sister. Second, he's done in by his victim's sister as he is pounded into dust.
- Kick the Dog: Killing Gloria in cold blood simply wasn't enough — he had to crush her locket with a picture of her family in it under his foot, too.
- 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.
- Meaningful Name: Zigzagged. While the name "Limp Bizkit" might invoke the image of the Zombie Gait, the zombies that Limp Bizkit actually summons have super strength and really great dexterity, even being able to walk on walls.
- 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.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: He could give DIO a run for his money on how casually misogynistic he is.
- Posthumous Villain Victory: In a way, he gets the last laugh on Ermes when Pucci kills her as a result of him reviving the Green Baby, who evolves Pucci's Stand into C-Moon, and then Made In Heaven.
- Post-Mortem Comeback: He makes a brief return during the battle with Donatello Versus when Under World causes him to appear in front of Ermes to pull her into the crashing airplane.
- Reduced to Dust: After he turns himself into a invisible zombie, he's pummeled into dust by Ermes, causing the rest of the surrounding zombies to fade away after he's destroyed.
- 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 and arguably on part with Johngalli A.
- Spell My Name with an S: "Sports Max" rather than "Maxx".
- Symbol Motif Clothing: His suit is covered in stylised commas, which may be a reference to how his Stand's power ensures his death isn't a full stop for him.
- 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.
- Too Important to Remember You: His hedonistic lifestyle of hookers, drugs, and murder on top of his mission to resurrect DIO's bone makes him not remember the names of the hookers he has sex with on the regular, as when he fails to remember the name of one on his way out of the sewage pipes, he decides to just call her a bitch instead.
- Undignified Death: The first time Ermes kills him, she drowns him in a sewage pipe. In other words, he literally eats shit and dies.
- 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.
- White Hair, Black Heart: A strikingly blond-haired man who happens to be one of the nastier villains in the part.
- Would Hit a Girl: Murdered Ermes' sister for her calling the cops on him. The anime goes further and shows one of his goons strangling her to death with Maxx standing beside and not minding at all. He also would've devoured Ermes if not her resolve.
Guccio (Stand: Survivor)
Voiced by: Hiro Shimono (TV anime JP), Henry Mason (TV anime EN)
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 Italian fashion designer Guccio Gucci, while his Stand is named after the American rock band Survivor.
- Bald of Evil: Downplayed on both parts; he has a large bald spot on the top of his head, and he isn't openly malicious, only antagonising the heroes under Whitesnake's orders.
- 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".
- Body Motifs: In a more subtle example, Survivor is designed to look like an enlarged brain neuron, which ties into how its electrical impulses cause the neurons in a person's brain to trigger their violent tendencies.
- Call-Back: Anasui uses Diver Down's power to invert his ribs to form a trap, similar to how Santana could perform a similar trick with his own ribs.
- Doom Magnet: Even before he got a Stand whose only purpose is to incite them, fights used to break out around him. It's not made clear how or why, or if he was a direct cause of any of them.
- Dramatic Irony: He has his Stand's name written all over his pants, which tells the audience he's Survivor's user right away, but the heroes don't know what his Stand's called, allowing him to attempt to convince them he's innocent.
- 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 any way. 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, though it is incapable of selecting specific targets, so anyone caught in its range become affected all at once.
- 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.
- Major Injury Underreaction: Despite having his entire torso horrifically mangled by Diver Down's ability, he spends his last moments stumbling away, gleefully noting he's successfully escaped from prison.
- Meaningful Name:
- The fashion brand Guccio's namesake founded is infamous for severe infighting within its leadership during the 1980s, echoing Guccio's uncanny ability to cause fights to break out around himself even without using Survivor.
- The band Survivor's most well-known songs, "Eye of the Tiger" and "Burning Heart", were composed for Rocky, making the name fitting for a Stand that aggravates people into fighting against each other.
- 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.
- Punch-Clock Villain: He's not openly malicious, as he only lets the Maximum Security Ward engage in an all-out brawl thanks to Survivor just because he's asked to by Whitesnake. Once the brawl is over and he sees that the Green Baby is absorbing people's life force, he panics and tries to leave so that he doesn't die. He doesn't even antagonize the heroes when he's confronted by Anasui.
- Shock and Awe: Survivor sends minuscule electric shocks into a person's brain, sending them into a rage.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Survivor was ultimately a major asset to Pucci's master plan, as he needed a way for the prisoners in the Maximum Security Ward to engage in bloody combat with each other to the point of being incapacitated enough for DIO's bone to absorb their souls and become the Green Baby.
- Stripperiffic: He wears a jumpsuit with cutouts exposing his shoulders, midriff and hips, but given he's a scrawny, ugly man the effect is rather unfortunate.
- 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 prison'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.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Compared to the rest of the antagonists, we don’t know much about him.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: While many Stand powers might look useless at first, their users' ingenuity tends to put that idea to rest. However, as far as DIO was concerned, Survivor just wasn't good for any active purpose, since its effect was uncontrollable and not easily manipulable — make people fight each other if they have animosity, relay their weak points to each other... that's it. 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. Compared to other weak-in-the-description, but devastating-in-practice Stands, like Lovers or Bohemian Rhapsody, it's not exactly a grand slam. Now, when you want somebody in a high-security prison ward dead...
- X-Ray Vision: When under the effects of Survivor, its victims are able to see through their opponents' skin on their arms and legs, letting them see their dominant muscle groups and any sustainable damage that's been done to them.
Viviano Westwood (Stand: Planet Waves)
Voiced by: Yasuhiro Mamiya (TV anime JP), John Eric Bentley (TV anime EN), Takaya Hashi (Eyes of Heaven)
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 the British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, while his Stand is named after the Bob Dylan album Planet Waves. Or at least, it was renamed that way.
- Agony of the Feet: During his brawl with Jolyne, Stone Free rips his toenail clean off.
- Ax-Crazy: Though he was already sadistic, Survivor effectively turns him into a brutal fighting machine hellbent on beating anyone to death in his vicinity with bare fists.
- Baritone of Strength: Exclusive to the English dub of the anime, John Eric Bentley gives Westwood an extremely husky voice to complement how vicious he is.
- 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.
- Dub Name Change: His Stand name goes from "Planet Waves" to "Starlight Waves" in the anime's English localization.
- Drunk with Power: He enjoys abusing the inmates.
- Ear Ache: Jolyne sends a thread into his ear in an attempt to distract him.
- Empowered Badass Normal: He's strong, resilient, and almost beats Jolyne unconcious with just his martial arts skills alone. A Stand that can summon falling meteors is just a neat little bonus for him.
- Facial Horror: His altercation with Sonny Likir after they fall under the effects of Survivor leaves him with a portion of his left cheek seriously torn up.
- Fights Like a Normal: In addition to his Stand powers, Westwood fights mainly like a prison guard and street brawler, which involves grappling, punching, and chokeholds.
- Flaying Alive: Planet Waves' body is designed to look like bare human muscles, whereas its crown is spiraled in a way that makes its head look like a heart.
- The Guards Must Be Crazy: Westwood, 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.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: He repeatedly tries to crush Jolyne under his boot, but said boot being stuffed with a brick and hit by one of his own meteors causes his ultimate defeat. This is earlier averted; his Stand causes the meteors he summons to break into nothing before they hit him and no amount of redirecting them or Westwood himself will make them connect.
- 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.
- Kubrick Stare: His key art (pictured top right) has him doing an unhinged face-down-eyes-up stare at the viewer.
- Last-Name Basis: Sonny Likir always refers to him by his last name of Westwood, much like how Westwood calls Likir by his last name.
- Lightning Bruiser: Westwood is quick and durable, he's able to move fast and take an absurd amount of attacks while fighting Jolyne.
- Loophole Abuse: The meteoroids disappear before they hit Westwood, but anything caught in between is affected like normal. Jolyne takes advantage of this by filling his boot with a brick, then putting it in the trajectory of a meteoroid, so the stone-filled boot hits him with the force of the original rock.
- Meaningful Name: Planet Waves' original name tied into its ability. It pulls meteoroids (earth) to Earth, hurtling through the air (wind) while on fire (fire). The new name is still this to a degree, as it evokes an outer space vibe that ties into the meteoroid attacks.
- Meteor-Summoning Attack: Planet Waves functions as a meteor summoner, pulling stray meteors from space to its immediate vicinity. Notably, the meteors that Planet Waves summons will disintegrate before they can actually harm Westwood, leaving him unaffected.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: His fight with Jolyne boils down to the two of them using the most brutal, primal fighting methods they can think of against each other until one of them falls.
- 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: There were signs he had a sadistic streak from the start; Survivor's effects make him even more bloodthirsty.
- Psycho for Hire: While his bloodthirstiness is amplified due to the effects of Survivor, he's not a pleasant person otherwise, and is implied to have gotten a job as a corrections officer to abuse his authority and inflict as much pain as possible to inmates. It's for this reason that Pucci assigned him as one of the four guards of the Maximum Security Ward sent to assassinate Jolyne, as he figures someone as violent as him could take out someone as unassuming as her.
- Required Secondary Powers: Admittedly, his Stand would be outright suicidal if the meteors he called down didn't dissipate before they can hit him. They'll still dissipate even if redirected at him or Westwood is moved closer to them.
- Scary Teeth: A few of his teeth become pointed and sharp as a side effect of Survivor's effect.
- Shout-Out: He declares that the Maximum Security Ward is now Fight Club after knocking Sonny Likir out and opening all the cell doors. Araki is a big fan of foreign movies, and the film had been out for two years when Westwood was first introduced.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He opened all the cell doors in the Maximum Security Ward at once while under the effects of Survivor, resulting in the ensuing prison brawl that would allow for the Green Baby to take full form.
- Stout Strength: He's muscular in the arm and leg department, but his torso is a bit pudgy, and he's one of the physically strongest characters in the series, having enough strength to twist Sonny Likir's leg inwards.
- 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 when Survivor starts affecting those in the maximum ward, it draws suspense on who the enemy actually is, until revealing Westwood is also another Stand User.
- 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.
- Victorious Roar: After beating up Sonny Likir and incapacitating him, he bellows at the top of his lungs, proclaiming himself as the strongest.
- Would Hit a Girl: Was amongst Jolyne’s foes and he did not hold back on beating her.
Voiced by: Chado Horii (TV anime JP), Luis Bermudez (TV anime EN)
A corrections officer assigned to the Maximum Security Ward and Viviano Westwood's coworker, he likes to startle prisoners with a lantern and spray them down with a hose.
He is named after the French fashion designer Sonia Rykiel.
- Adaptational Attractiveness: In the manga, he's a complete and utter Gonk, emphasizing the fact that he's ultimately a Muggle. In the anime, he was redesigned to be easier on the eyes, as his hair is more straightened out, and his fat lips have been compressed to look more normal. He's still not winning any beauty contests anytime soon, though.
- Adaptation Expansion: The anime places a little more emphasis on his position as a prison guard by having him and Westwood be the ones who initially escorted Jolyne to the Maximum Security Ward, rather than the two faceless guards seen in the manga.
- Anime Hair: He has a bunch of curls sprawled out across his hair, much like Giorno, but multiplied to an absurd amount.
- Asshole Victim: Likir is an abusive prison guard who gets his kicks out of tormenting Jolyne, so it's hard to feel bad for him when Westwood beats him to a bloody pulp and twists his leg inwards.
- Ax-Crazy: Between him and Westwood, he's definitely the less vicious of the two, but he still ends up getting thrown into a frenzy thanks to Survivor.
- Career-Ending Injury: When he gets into a fight with Westwood, Likir gets his leg twisted inwards by Westwood, causing him to be put out of commission.
- Game of Nerds: He's an active fan of baseball, asking Westwood whether or not the Miami Marlins will win their upcoming game.
- Jerkass: He gets his kicks from torturing prisoners, just like Westwood.
- Last-Name Basis: Westwood always refers to him by his last name of Likir, much like how he calls Westwood by his last name.
- Muggle: He's a high-ranking corrections officer in Green Dolphin Street Prison, giving him precedence to be in the same situations as a Stand user such as Westwood, but unlike most other villains in the story, Likir has no Stand of his own.
- One-Steve Limit: Zigzagged. He shares his namesake with one of the Sons of DIO introduced later into the story, but the distinction is made by the latter using the spelling "Rikiel" as his first name with no known last name, while Sonny uses the spelling "Likir" as his last name.
- Pyrrhic Victory: He wins the bet he made with Westwood and earns $15 for it. However, the setup for the bet causes him and Westwood to be affected by Survivor, which causes Likir to get his leg twisted inwards and be put out of commission.
- Rabid Cop: He likes blinding prisoners with a lantern light before hosing them down, just because he gets a kick out of it.
- Side Bet: He bets Westwood $15 that he'll be able to both startle and hose down Jolyne. Needless to say, he wins that bet, but it ultimately causes more harm than good with Survivor out and about.
- Uncertain Doom: It's never seen what happens to him after Westwood takes him out, but it can be inferred that he was one of the 36 souls absorbed by the Green Baby.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Had he not left the hose on while he was talking to Westwood, the Maximum Security Ward wouldn't be flooded enough for Survivor to affect as many people as it did.
- Villainous Friendship: He seemed quite chummy with Westwood up until Survivor drove him into a frenzy.
Kenzō (Stand: Dragon's Dream)
Voiced by: Mugihito (TV anime JP), William Frederick Knight (TV anime EN)
Dragon's Dream voiced by: Chō (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Brent Mukai (TV anime EN), 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 "Feng Shui Assassination".
He is named after the fashion brand Kenzo, while his Stand is named after an artbook by Roger Dean, the album artist behind such bands as Asia and Yes.
- Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Kenzō is almost unnaturally flexible with his joints, able to bend his fingers and hands completely backwards while stretching out before engaging Jolyne.
- Adaptational Attractiveness: He's still far from a sight for sore eyes, but compared to how he's drawn in the manga, he's sort of easier to look at in the anime.
- Affably Evil: Not him, but his Stand is actually pretty decent, all things considered. Dragon's Dream even helps with defeating Kenzō.
- 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 Feng Shui.
- All-Natural Snake Oil: He's a believer and practitioner of homeopathy. He specifically subscribes to the alternative medication of urine therapy, stating that drinking his own piss every morning is the secret to his ample body.
- Asshole Victim: He's disfigured beyond all possible points of recovery, and Dragon's Dream itself says that he's pretty much done for by the end of the fight. He absolutely deserves it, however.
- Awesome, but Impractical: His Stand's ability is among the biggest examples of "high-risk, high-reward" in the series. Running off the concept of Feng Shui, it points out the good and bad areas of the environment to strike the opponent from, as well as evade attacks — the key term being "and bad". His Feng Shui Assassination combat style can just as easily be used against him if he's positioned in an unlucky spot, or someone happens to make a mirrored copy of his Stand that gives him the opposite advice of what he wants, which is precisely what F.F. does.
- Ax-Crazy: Not as obvious as some of the other examples but much like with Lang Rangler earlier, Kenzō is revealed to be a sadistic lunatic after his barely disguised Mask of Sanity starts to fall off. This is especially obvious in his fight against F.F. when he takes his time torturing them before strapping them down in an electric chair and laughing at their pain.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He's quite the oddball, and there's few instances 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.
- Body Horror: Anasui breaks his arms and legs and moves all the broken bones into his legs, making him a mangled mess of a human being.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: His Stand is the embodiment of his skill in Feng Shui Assassination and naturally developed after 40 years of martial arts training.
- Combat Clairvoyance: Dragon's Dream works this way, giving Kenzō (and the heroes) hints as to which angles and locations to attack from that would ensure that their attacks land perfectly.
- Combo Platter Powers: While Dragon's Dream is basically a glorified compass, it can also let Kenzō detach his and his opponent's limbs for some Detachment Combat.
- Cult: He used to lead one, complete with celebrity spokespeople.
- Deadpan Snarker: While it claims to be neutral and not take sides, this doesn't stop Dragon's Dream from making dry, witty remarks at other people's expense; typically to its own user.
- 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 artist. The hair does get destroyed when he's electrocuted via F.F.'s clever thinking.
- Dub Name Change: "Dragon's Dream" is changed to "Drake's Dream" in English localizations.
- 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.
- Evil Is Hammy: When he seemingly lands a fatal blow on Jolyne, Kenzō ends up celebrating with this declaration:Kenzō: Yes, I won! Bow down before me! There's no change in reviving the founder, either!
- Evil Old Folks: A wicked old man who used to run a suicide cult, manipulating over 30 people into burning themselves alive.
- Fair-Play Villain: Dragon's Dream physically embodies the principles of Feng Shui and as such is obligated to explain everything, including his master's specific techniques and where he'll be striking from.
- Fantastic Fighting Style: Feng Shui 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.
- Hated by All: Easily rivals Cioccolata in this department. Absolutely no one wants to be involved with Kenzō, and for a very good reason. Even pedophiles can't stand him. Then, his sentient, supposedly neutral Stand grows tired of him.
- 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 as charismatic or competent as he thinks he is.
- Humiliation Conga: Firstly gets electrocuted after failing to kill F.F., then gets his legs turned into springs as he begs for his Stand to help to no avail before falling into a trash bin, all while his own Stand mocks 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.
- Knight of Cerebus: Despite having some humor to him, Kenzō is much more depraved than the antagonists before him and came ridiculously close to killing both F.F. and Jolyne. The fight against him is also much more intense and hopeless, and treated with such gravity as well.
- Laughably Evil: Despite how despicable a person he is, his mannerisms and frequent bickering with his own Stand add a sense of humor to his depravity.
- Longer-Than-Life Sentence: His punishment for drugging his followers and burning them alive was 280 years in prison, and he apparently committed more atrocities behind bars that landed him in the Maximum Security Ward.
- Made of Iron: Not only does he survive getting electrocuted by F.F., but he keeps on fighting Jolyne and Anasui shortly afterwards like nothing happened. It's especially impressive, given how old he is.
- Miniature Senior Citizens: He's barely taller than D an G's waist.
- Near-Villain Victory: Seriously wounded F.F. and almost killed Jolyne if Anasui hadn't intervened at the last second.
- Noodle Incident: It's never stated what crime Kenzō committed in prison that landed him in the Maximum Security Ward. Anasui states that he used to see Kenzō in the Male Wing for a long while, but then he suddenly disappeared one day, and Anasui didn't expect to find him in the Maximum Security Ward.
- 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.
- Sole Survivor: According to his backstory, Kenzō and thirty-four of his cult members tried to immolate themselves. As the building burned, Kenzō was the only survivor when he tumbled into a surprisingly safe spot where the collapse of the walls shielded him from the flames and the smoke. His survival could be due to Dragon's Dream displaying itself for the first time.
- Spring Coil: Anasui uses Diver Down to turn Kenzō's legs into hopping springs. Soon after, his whole body breaks apart.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With himself, if that's possible. Because Dragon's Dream is built around the principles of Feng Shui, it believes in fair play and thus points out lucky spots to everyone, including his opponent. Naturally, Kenzō would prefer it didn't do that.
- 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.
- Undignified Death: His whole is body is transformed into a spring, hopping around aimlessly just after being electrocuted and ends up falling into a trash bin before blacking out.
- 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.
- Villain Ball: Had he simply let fate do its thing and not stood so close to F.F. and mocked them shortly before they're zapped by the electric chair, he could have avoided F.F. grabbing and electrocuting him by extension. Dragon's Dream even mocks him for being so arrogant and careless.
- 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 Feng Shui.
D an G (Stand: Yo-Yo Ma)
Voiced by: Ryota Takeuchi (TV anime JP), Christopher Wehkamp (TV anime EN)
Yo-Yo Ma voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi (TV anime JP), Dino Andrade (TV anime EN)
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.
- Acid Attack: Yo-Yo Ma can disperse a saliva that functions as acid that dissolves parts of a body whenever he gets flunged around.
- 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.
- Animal Motifs: Yo-Yo Ma very obviously takes after a frog with his general shape, posture, and color, not to mention his love of storing insects in his body. Appropriately, Anasui incapacitates him by hooking a frog's brain up to his nerve sensors.
- Baritone of Strength: D an G has a deep voice, though the "strength" part fall flats when he turns into a sniveling wreck after his arm gets injured.
- 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.
- Bring My Brown Pants: Yo-Yo Ma urinates himself in fear after experiencing a frog's reaction to birds.
- Combat Sadomasochist: Yo-Yo Ma enjoys being hit and generally mangled, frequently begging his victims for more. It's not like he has anything to worry about considering his ridiculous Healing Factor.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: F.F. forcefully enters his body à la Super Buu, brutally dislocates his jaw and tears his head clean off.
- Dirty Cop: Before he was arrested, anyway.
- Dub Name Change: "Yo-Yo Ma" becomes "Ya-Ya Ma" in English localizations.
- Evil Smells Bad: When Anasui tries using Diver Down to recover the Green Baby, he remarks the inside of Yo-Yo Ma's body had such an unbearable stench, he couldn't get close enough to retrieve it.
- Eyepatch of Power: Nope. D an G seems to be a threat, but he’s not exactly much of one. Also, he's not actually handicapped and it's not made clear why he wore it to begin with.
- Faux Affably Evil: Yo-Yo Ma seems childlike and seemingly wants to help. He actually wants to handicap you and will do so when you’re off guard. He actually rubs in its ability as an Implacable Man.
- Going Postal: 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? There is no way you can destroy or stop me. I'm afraid you'll have to get used to the idea! There was only ever one way either of you were going to survive this trip, and that was to escape me! Alas, you have failed!
- 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.
- I Want My Mommy!: After his arm has been mangled, D an G sobs over the pain and asks for his mother.
- Morphic Resonance: Yo-Yo Ma's left eye is shaped like an eyepatch and has a spike protruding from his head identical to the one on D an G's helmet, which serves as a visual indicator that he's D an G's personal Stand instead of one granted to him by Whitesnake's discs.
- Mosquito Miscreants: Yo-Yo Ma secretly attacks Jolyne by sending mosquitoes from his mouth and having them inject his acid into her body.
- Never Bareheaded: D an G's always seen with his helmet, which stays on even when F.F. makes his head explode.
- 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.
- Non-Standard Character Design: For reasons unknown, D an G is the only prisoner to lack the "G.D. St JAIL" mark on the back of his outfit.
- Not So Stoic: On the surface, D an G appears to be an emotionless inmate who is persistent to do his job, but this couldn't be farther from the truth, as once Diver Down breaks his arm, he's revealed to be a Manchild, sniveling and calling out for his mommy.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Yo-Yo Ma seems like The Ditz, but he’s actually pretty vile.
- Off with His Head!: F.F. kills him by forcibly tearing his head off.
- Paper Tiger: He looks tough and intimidating in appearance, but in truth is weak, easily scared, and not much of a fighter at all.
- 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.
- Shoe Shine, Mister?: Yo-Yo Ma comically offers to clean Jolyne's shoes when introducing himself.
- Smarter Than You Look: Yo-Yo Ma seems stupid and at times it is, but it’s very good at handicapping you.
- Spell My Name with an S: "D&G" after namesake Dolce & Gabanna.
- Still Sucks Thumb: When getting attacked by Jolyne and the others, Yo-Yo Ma sucks his thumb while he recovers.
- Stomach of Holding: Yo-Yo Ma can hold a variety of items inside of it, from mosquitos to frogs to the fruit that carries the Green Baby. Anasui describes it as endless (and foul) when he tries to reach in with Diver Down to retrieve the fruit.
- Tongue-Tied: If Yo-Yo Ma's saliva corrodes a person's tongue, they're unable to speak, and any attempts at words they try saying will come out as a raspy wheeze.
- Wingding Eyes: Yo-Yo Ma's eyes turn into hearts after developing an attraction towards frogs.
- 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 dies with him.
- Who Even Needs a Brain?: Anasui manages to defeat Yo-Yo Ma by attaching a frog's brain to his own, fully incapacitating him until D an G has been killed.
Miuccia "Miumiu" Miuller (Stand: Jail House Lock)
Voiced by: Yuko Kaida (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Morgan Garrett (TV anime EN), 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 more than 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".
- Ax-Crazy: She says that she only uses Jail House Lock in order to keep Stand users from escaping, but this isn't 100% true, as she shows sadistic pleasure at the thought of getting to shoot Jolyne dead.
- Body Motifs: Brains, as her wrinkled sweater resembles the wrinkled surface of a brain, while Jail House Lock has an exposed brain to reflect its powers.
- Brain Monster: Fitting its power to induce Laser-Guided Amnesia, Jail House Lock has an exposed brain at the top of its head.
- 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.
- Defeat Means Friendship: Defied. When Jolyne defeats her, she uses Jail House Lock to lock the security squadron in a memory loop, but only because Jolyne forces her to and leaves Miumiu behind once she escapes Green Dolphin Street Prison.
- 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.
- Dub Name Change: Her name is changed to "Mew Mew" in the English localization. Averted with her Stand, however, who keeps the name "Jailhouse Lock"; the only change is the removal of the space between "Jail" and "House", making it actually closer to its namesake, the song "Jailhouse Rock".
- 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.
- Emotion Eater: A subsidiary effect of Jail House Lock is that the longer the affected target keeps looping after a memory reset, it erodes the person's capability on what they're trying to do/remember until it makes them give up entirely.
- Faux Affably Evil: She shows a bit of courtesy to Jolyne while she's trying to remember what she wanted to do, but this is just a fluke, as Miumiu then ends up antagonizing Jolyne after observing her from outside the rec room.
- Fingerless Hands: Jail House Lock's arms end in conical protrusions instead of hands, which serves as a visual shorthand of its complete lack of physical combat ability.
- 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 make intended targets 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.
- Hoist by Her Own Petard: Her Stand that she used to keep Stand users locked up ends up being forced to help Jolyne and her friends escape after Jolyne beats her into submission and takes her hostage.
- 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 "Jailhouse Rock", but her arc in the manga is named "Jail House Lock" (in English). It makes more sense with the nature her ability, which acts as a non-physical lock to keep the Stand-using inmates quiet.
- Kick the Dog: She has the nerve to torment Jolyne while trying to keep her mind under wraps, as she "accidentally" spills coffee on her, pretends to clean her up, and uses it to take Jolyne's doctor's note out of her pocket and rip it to shreds, thus making Jolyne forget what she's even afflicted with.
- 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.
- Knight of Cerebus: While Kenzō was undoubtedly monstrous, she's just as bad. She takes absolute joy in giving people trouble, and has no qualms about killing Emporio, who is a child. Her arc is a sign of what's to come.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Your short-term memory pretty much ceases to exist once Jail House Lock gets its hands on you.
- Living Shadow: When Jail House Lock is in effect, it becomes a flat, transparent figure that scales across the prison walls.
- Male Gaze: Invoked. Her miniskirt◊ is 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.
- Perception Filter: This is what makes Jail House Lock extremely dangerous. Because you'd only be able to retain three pieces of information, Miumiu can easily shoot you four times as each bullet counts towards the three-memory limit, meaning she'd still deal damage even if you manage to block the last three bullets. This even extends to people, as Miumiu could sic four guards or more onto you but you'd only be able to defend yourself against three of them.
- Perpetual Smiler: Jail House Lock has a small, shadowy mouth that's constantly smiling.
- Police Brutality: The ultimate example of this in Green Dolphin Street Prison. Because she recognizes Jolyne as a threat, she doesn't just attempt to have her stuck in a mind loop, but actively capitalizes on it by ordering for the prison's entire security squadron to shoot her to death, showing glee at the prospect of her dying. Since she also recognizes Emporio as one of Jolyne's allies, she also doesn't care whether or not he dies in the shootout.
- Rule of Three: Jail House Lock causes affected targets to only remember three things at once. If additional information was added, the memory lock resets.
- Saying Too Much: After Jolyne manages to recover her memory of Miumiu thanks to Emporio, she confronts her with the question on that if she's the enemy user. Thinking Jolyne is trying to bluff her, Miumiu instead drops that the fight is over, giving Jolyne confirmation on who to beat down.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: Many characters are quick to note the fact that her fashion choices are quite ratty. Once she finally reveals herself as the head of security, she ditches her sweater in favor of a pink police uniform, making her look much more refined.
- Smug Snake: When she has Jolyne in range of the security squadron's fire, she boasts about getting the opportunity to kill her, and how Jolyne doesn't even recognize who she is, which gives her enough time to register Miumiu as an enemy and beat her to a pulp.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: She has the prison's entire security squadron surround Jolyne and Emporio from both sides of the staircase, and orders all of them to open fire.
- Unkempt Beauty: The only thing that the inmates know about Miumiu is the fact that she dresses real messily, and is virtually unknown by them otherwise.
- Weak, but Skilled: Jail House Lock's ability is very powerful and effective, but in exchange its power for battle is very mediocre, to the point Miumiu has to use a gun and later other guards of the prison to attempt to kill Jolyne.
- Would Hurt a Child: She is willing to take Emporio out due to him being Jolyne's ally, and doesn't care one bit that he's a child. She doesn't hesitate to gun Emporio down while firing at his computer, and leaves him in the line of fire of her entire security squadron.
The Sons of DIO
Attracted by fate towards Florida, three sons of DIO Brando ally themselves with Enrico Pucci in his quest to attain "Heaven", acting as a sort of personal elite guard and serving as the last opponents for the heroes before Pucci himself.
- Bastard Bastard: The three of them are villainous children of DIO with women he never married.
- Birthmark of Destiny: All of them, being three of DIO's four children, have the Joestar Birthmark like Giorno does, since DIO conceived them using Jonathan Joestar's body. Because Pucci gained the Joestar Birthmark through fusing with the Green Baby, fate itself drew them to seek out Pucci, which led to him recruiting them as his strongest minions.
- Black Sheep: Considering they were born of Jonathan's body, they're all technically members of the Joestar bloodline, but unlike even Giorno and Jolyne they're very much on the side of DIO.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Before they met Pucci, Ungalo was a miserable drug addict, Rikiel's anxiety ruined his life, and Donatello was not loved by his family and fell into a life of crime after being framed for theft.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Each of them had desire to find their potential in the midst of their pasts, after Pucci informs them of the bloodline they came from, they're convinced their abilities will change them.
- Dhampyr: In the same vein as Giorno, they're technically this, but none of them have any vampiric traits.
- Elite Mooks: Pucci meets with all of them after he left the prison once he fused with the Green Baby. 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 of the three Sons of DIO symbolize the worst aspects of their father, namely, his arrogance, greed, cruelty, and hatred for the world. The other is the noblest of the three and is almost the opposite, embodying DIO's positive traits and is more akin to Jonathan.
- Meaningful Name: Since DIO means "god" in Italian, it basically means Ungalo, Rikiel, Donatello, and their half-brother Giorno, are the sons of God.
- Mirror Character: Once upon a time, four boys were fathered by a man who never cared for them, and grew up to have unhappy and unloving childhoods, cast out by society. But while Giorno's life was set on a better course by the positive influence of the mysterious gangster, Rikiel, Donatello, and Ungalo never had anyone to do the same for them, leading them to live aimless lives of despair until fate drew them to Pucci.
- Only One Name: Unlike their brothers Donatello and Giorno, Ungalo and Rikiel never have their last names revealed.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Their Stands are both powerful and devastating, with their area of effect encompassing all of Florida to the whole planet.
- Reality Warper: Tying to the fact that Pucci is letting them live a lie of grandeur, all three of them have Stands that weaponize concepts over reality.
- Bohemian Rhapsody lets Ungalo bring to life every fictional character in existence, letting them go on a rampage across the world.
- Sky High lets Rikiel control rods, which are cryptids created from distorted photos of flying insects.
- Under World lets Donatello unearth memories of events and let his victims experience them, even though these events are in the past and no longer exist.
- Retroactively, Gold Experience Requiem also lets Giorno fall under this umbrella with its Return To Zero ability removing all causes from effects, effectively making any actions done against it never occur in the first place.
- 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 Jolyne and Ermes, 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.
- Unskilled, but Strong: All three of them have destructive and versatile Stands, but due to only awakening their abilities shortly before heading out to fight the heroes, they lack the combat experience the heroes have gained from numerous Stand battles. Pucci even cites this to warn Donatello not to underestimate Jolyne during their fight.
Ungalo (Stand: Bohemian Rhapsody)
Voiced by: Takumi Yamazaki (TV anime JP), Todd Haberkorn (TV anime EN)
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".
- Actor Allusion: In the English dub, he says that his new sense of fufillment after gaining his powers "really gets [him] fired up".
- All of the Other Reindeer: In his words, society despised and rejected him, which is why he wants to use his Stand to make everyone suffer.
- Art Initiates Life: Bohemian Rhapsody causes this to happen to any depiction of characters in any setting or story, from a stick figure on a street sign, to fairytale characters like Pinocchio and the Seven Dwarves, to copyrighted characters like Mickey Mousenote and Spider-Mannote , to historic figures such as Vincent van Gogh in one of his self-portraits.
- 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.
- Death by Despair: 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.
- Dub Name Change: In the English dub, Bohemian Rhapsody becomes "Bohemian Ecstatic".
- Facial Markings: He has a little red marking shaped like a "u" under his left eye.
- Fairytale Motifs:
- He's implied to empathize with Peter Pan, as the character is seen flying next to the plane he's on while Bohemian Rhapsody's ability is active, complete with the character sharing his distinctive facial features. This ties in with his hedonism and immaturity, as a desire to never grow up.
- In the anime, he's shown reading Aladdin instead, which still fits him as he views Bohemian Rhapsody as the key to him getting out of his miserable, drug-addled life, much like how Aladdin was able to escape poverty through the powers of the genie.
- 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.
- The Ghost: Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the few Stands in the series that doesn't have any sort of given form.
- 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.
- 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.
- Lazy Bum: All he ever does is drink booze and get high, since the automatic nature of Bohemian Rhapsody means he doesn't have to lift a finger to do anything.
- Meaningful Name: Bohemian Rhapsody's powerset brings to mind the first four lines of the Queen song that serves as its namesake.Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
- 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. The only hints are that he hates the entire world for "treating him like shit" and that he was likely raised by an abusive single mother, since Dio sought out cruel women to bear his children, believing they would become strong-willed from having to endure such hardship in their formative years.
- Never Bareheaded: He never removes his purple knit cap.
- 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.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Bohemian Rhapsody's manifestation of Vincent van Gogh's self-portrait borrows some aspects of his higher detailing art style, and introduces him with a swirly backdrop as if to remind viewers about him via his most famous work. The anime doubles down on this, using a painterly appearance with visible brushstrokes and not-wholly-consistent coloring to really sell Van Gogh's oil paint medium.
- Powerful, but Incompetent: His Stand is among the most powerful in the entire franchise. Being able to make fictional characters real, much less characters with all the abilities and personality traits they had in their original fiction, 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. 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.
- Powers Do the Fighting: Fitting for someone as hedonistic as Ungalo, Bohemian Rhapsody's range and autonomous nature mean he never directly interacts with anyone from Jolyne's gang.
- Public Domain Character: Most of the characters that come out from their books are from public-domain stories such as The Adventures of Pinocchio or The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids. This was necessary as there was no way in hell Araki was going to get anyone copyrighted to appear.note That said, many of the summoned characters are famous due to Disney having adapted them into movies, but they're shown with original designs.
- Reality Warper: His Stand's power 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 fairytale, 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.
- Shapes of Disappearance: When Bohemian Rhapsody is activated, all the characters brought to life are shown vanished from their works as empty blank spaces.
- Share Phrase: Characters brought to life by Bohemian Rhapsody say "That's how the story goes!" whenever things go according to the events of their story.
- Shear Menace: The first thing he does after waking up in the emergency room is take Pucci hostage and hold a pair of scissors to his throat.
- 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: Ungalo 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.
- Weaksauce Weakness: While Bohemian Rhapsody starts out as one of the most powerful Stands of all time, with its Reality Warper ability causing massive global devastation, it ends up being easily defeated by Weather Report, who simply designs a character with the power to put every other summoned character back where they belong. This not only brings the Stand's rampage to a screeching halt, it also permanently renders its ability completely unusable, since any attempt at activating it again would simply summon Put-Back once more and instantly cancel it. Ungalo immediately loses all will to live and falls into a coma upon realizing this.
- 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: Makoto Furukawa (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Ben Balmaceda (TV anime EN), 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 to Jolyne and co. 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: Accept that I'm the victor! I've won! My days of having panic attacks are over! With this newfound confidence, I'm going to reclaim my life! I am Apollo 11, don't you see?!
- 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: Sky High allows Rikiel to specifically control 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. The English dub even has Ermes lampshade this, calling him, "that bastard with the boob window."
- 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.
- Didn't Think This Through: Revealing himself after making his first attack immediately clued Jolyne and Ermes that his rods are given more accuracy at close range.
- Driven to Suicide: It's implied that the car accident that landed him in hospital was a result of him losing the will to live and intentionally going against the flow of traffic in the hopes of being killed by an oncoming car.
- Dub Name Change: Sky High becomes "Sky Guy" in the English localization.
- Feel No Pain: At the end of his fight, Rikiel has his Stand numb his nerves, allowing him to use his own hands to put out the fire on Jolyne's neck and endure the No-Holds-Barred Beatdown she's giving him.
- Gasoline Dousing: After Jolyne sets herself on fire to prevent the rods from attacking, Rikiel resorts to doing the same to find a weak spot where he sends his rods through the flames.
- 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 valuable information 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.
- Grew a Spine: He's first introduced having a panic attack over his poor health, but quickly grows in mental fortitude after awakening his Stand's power and becomes a far more dangerous opponent in a short time.
- 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.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: During his fight with Jolyne, he wraps his hands around the back of her neck in order to put out the fire she lit on herself so his rods can kill her by absorbing the heat from her brainstem. Unfortunately for him, his hands prevented his rods from sucking the heat from Jolyne fully before he succumbed to his injuries.
- Like Father, Unlike Son: Rikiel also contrasts with his father DIO in some respects. 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 compared to Donatello or Ungalo, as he lacks the sadism and negative qualities of the other two. Rikiel represents the positive parts of his father instead, making him similar to Jonathan Joestar and more akin to his brother, Giorno. Had they not been enemies and met on better terms, Rikiel could likely 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".
- Power Incontinence: Rikiel's inability to control Sky High was the reason for him being a Cosmic Plaything.
- Spell My Name with an S: "Rykiel" after Sonia Rykiel.
- Super Wrist-Gadget: Sky High manifests as a frog-like creature clinging to his right wrist, which he uses to command the rods.
- Visual Pun: Rikiel is a young man wearing a cow-patterned suit, which would make him a cowboy. It could also reference how cowardly he was before he awakened his Stand and Grew a Spine.
- Weirdness Magnet: His semi-dormant Stand attracted rods during his high school years, which led him to being a Cosmic Plaything.
- Worthy Opponent: Considers Jolyne this for beating him, so he tells her valuable information out of gratitude.
- Would Hurt a Child: He is willing to attack Emporio, a young boy, using Sky High.
Donatello Versus (Stand: Under World)
Voiced by: Takanori Hoshino (TV anime JP, All-Star Battle R), Isaac Robinson-Smith (TV anime EN), 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.
- Abusive Parents: A more passive example than Giorno's outright abusive stepfather, but Donatello's mother and stepfather loved his sisters but not him, and did not even try to protest his sentence when he was sent to juvenile hall on flimsy charges.
- Alas, Poor Villain: Downplayed. Jolyne shouts his name in shock upon realizing that he was killed by Pucci but she quickly gets over it and his death goes otherwise unmourned.
- 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.
- Can't Take Criticism: He increasingly grows frustrated with Pucci constantly pointing out how he is fairing against Jolyne with him constantly demanding Pucci to shut up.
- 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.
- Dissonant Serenity: The memories of the passengers in the airplane act entirely dead-eyed to the fact that they're going to crash, yet still await it knowing it is unavoidable.
- Dub Name Change: The English dub changes "Under World" into "Netherworld".
- Evil Sounds Deep: Has the deepest voice out of DIO's sons in the anime, and is arguably the most ruthless out of them.
- Face Framed in Shadow: His early appearances before he battled Jolyne has his face obscured in shadow.
- 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. Fittingly, his Stand is named Under World and has time-related powers.
- Healing Serpent: Under World has the insignia on its chest, for seemingly no reason other than the fact that Pucci helped Donatello awaken it while in a hospital.
- Identical Stranger: While he doesn't look like Pucci, the latter notes in his introduction that their biometrics are nigh-identical, even down to their pulse and blood pressure. Sure enough, he turns out to be an ideal body double when Pucci needs to make a speedy getaway.
- 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.
- Last-Name Basis: Pucci mainly refers to him as Versus.
- Loophole Abuse: Despite Under World's immense power, its strict adherence to following the original memories it unearths allows Jolyne to find ways to survive what would normally be fatal events.
- After Jolyne leaves the plane that is about to crash to go after Donatello and Pucci, Donatello creates a second memory of a fighter jet that is also about to crash in order to trap Jolyne. However, since both planes are destined to be destroyed when they crash into the ground, Jolyne is able to smash the fighter jet into the larger plane without making either explode.
- Secondly, when Jolyne finds out that two of the seats on the airliner are destined to survive the crash Donatello summons three Littlest Cancer Patients to the seats in the hopes of either making Jolyne and Ermes sacrifice the kids, causing them to be too emotionally distraught to continue fighting, or allow the kids take the seats and die from the explosion. Instead, Jolyne and Ermes use their Stands to hide themselves and one of the kids in the original survivors while the remaining two children take the seats, realising that Under World's effects will ensure that the original survivors will live even if not in their seats, negating Donatello's plan.
- Missed Him by That Much: When on the search for Emporio amidst Heavy Weather, he unknowingly runs past him. Moments later however, he identifies Emporio by getting him to pick up a phone call.
- 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.
- Odd Name Out: He's the only one of DIO's children introduced in Stone Ocean to have his full name revealed.
- Personality Powers: Under World has the power to unearth memories from the ground and use them to harm others. Fittingly, Donatello is hung up on the past — harboring a grudge against the family who didn't love him, and a desire to follow the legacy of a long-dead father he never met.
- A Place Holds Memories: A more literal example. Under World has the power to physically unearth memories that are buried in the ground, and force its targets to relive those memories. For example, Donatello finds himself in an area where a plane crash directly occurred years prior, digs up the memory of it, and has Jolyne and Ermes directly experience the events of the plane crash.
- Precision F-Strike: Donatello tells Pucci to... well... shut the fuck up so he can focus on his fight with Jolyne. When Pucci asks him if he's speaking to him, Donatello switches the subject. It happens again later in the same chapter (the following episode if you're watching the anime). This time, he doesn't bother changing the subject nor apologize. These points are a hint of his true nature.Versus: I swear to God if you don't shut the fuck up already and stop confusing me...
Versus: Shut the fuck up already! Enough! Does it look like I'm losing here? Huh?! Answer me, Father Pucci! I'm still winning this damn battle, aren't I?!
- 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. In addition, the woman who cursed Stanley's family and put him in that situation to begin with? In the original book, she used to live in Egypt, which is also where Donatello's deadbeat dad lived.
- 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.
- Squishy Wizard: Under World's abilities are incredibly versatile and deadly, but the Stand itself possesses little destructive power, relying on its unearthed memories to dish out damage.
- 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.
- The Un-Favorite: His mother and stepfather doted on his younger sisters but not him, leading him to run away at 13.
- 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 battle with Jolyne, Donatello's true personality shows he's ruthless, selfish, and arrogant like his father, DIO.
- Would Hurt a Child: Not only does he toss three injured children into the crashing plane to force a Sadistic Choice onto Jolyne and Ermes, but he has the gall to blame it on them for not lying down and accepting their fate. He truly lives up to his father's example; we should be thankful he didn't throw in a sick baby, too.
- 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.

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.
- Karmic Death: 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.

Jolyne's boyfriend at the beginning of the story. Framed her for a hit and run.
- The Atoner: The next time he appears, he repents for landing Jolyne in prison by giving her both money and access to a helicopter as well as throwing the police off of her trail with a false location.
- The Bus Came Back: Shows up in the beginning of how Jolyne ended up in prison only to be briefly brought back after the group's Great Escape.
- 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: Framed Jolyne for a hit and run just to avoid prison. The next time he appears, he makes up for this by assisting Jolyne and even throws the police off her trail.
- Pet the Dog: Gives the police a false location for the group, giving them a chance to make a safe getaway.
- Tongue Trauma: Despite being genuinely remorseful and apologetic for getting Jolyne tossed in jail, she still gives him some payback in the form of Ermes cloning his tongue, walking a very far distance and then removing the copying sticker so it very painfully remerges with him.
- What You Are in the Dark: After Jolyne left and he thought she wasn't listening (unaware that she used Ermes' Stand to duplicate a his tongue as a bug), he goes for his phone and calls the police. But rather than telling them that Jolyne had come to his home to ask for cash and a ride as she and Ermes suspected, he tells them that he declined and that she was heading to Mexico.

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 their own person.
- Spell My Name with an S: The English subtitles on Netflix spell his name as "Locobaroco", with single C's.

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 they turn good, Foo Fighters possesses Atroe's body so they 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.
- Possessing a Dead Body: After her death, Foo Fighters possesses her corpse in order to assist Jolyne while moving freely about the prison.
- 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.
- Small Role, Big Impact: She only showed up for one episode of the anime, being killed offscreen and possessed by an evil Foo Fighters. Once the latter makes their Heel–Face Turn, they use Atroe's corpse as a body to blend in with the prisoners.
- 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, Foo Fighters after they possess her, and supplementary materials.

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.
- Awful Wedded Life: Although we don't see much of it, her marriage to Jotaro does not appear to have been very happy. In the past, when Jolyne gets arrested, she's seen unsuccessfully pleading with him on the phone to come home before he abruptly hangs up on her.
- 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.
- Cool-Down Hug: In the anime adaptation, her spirit gives one to Ermes after Sports Maxx is defeated as a way of thanking Ermes for avenging her.
- Dramatic Necklace Removal: As she was murdered, one of her assailants ripped off her locket — containing a family photograph of herself, Ermes, and their father — and crushed it beneath his foot.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: To complement her strikingly blonde hair, she's willing to put her entire family before herself, wanting Ermes' best interests at heart, and calls the cops on Sports Maxx because she knows it's the right thing to do.
- Latino Is Brown: Averted. Unlike her sister, Gloria has blonde hair and blue eyes.
- No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: She's killed by Sports Maxx for calling the cops on him after witnessing him murder someone.
- Posthumous Character: Dead long before the part begins.
- Promoted to Parent: After their mother dies, Gloria tells Ermes to think of her as her mother from now on.
The Green Baby (Stand: Green, Green Grass of Home)
Voiced by: Ikue Otani (TV anime JP), Melissa Fahn (TV anime EN)
This bizarre creature is actually a homunculus of DIO generated from one of his bones through Limp Bizkit's effects and absorbing the souls 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.
- Ambiguously Evil: On its own, it only antagonizes the heroes initially through its passive ability to shrink and later due to curiosity without explicit hostile intent that DIO, the original owner of the bone, possessed. However, Anasui internally hypothesizes it has a malign nature that will be a threat in the future even before it merges with Pucci.
- The Antichrist: A creature spawned from the body of DIO whose purpose is to empower his most loyal follower with the ability to bring about doomsday.
- Birthmark of Destiny: Being born from one of DIO's bones (taken from the stolen body of Jonathan Joestar), it has the star-shaped Joestar Birthmark on its left shoulder. When it sees Jolyne's own birthmark, it becomes fixated on her.
- Dub Name Change: The Green Baby becomes "the Green Child" and its Stand "Green, Green Grass of Home" becomes "Green, Green, Green Home" in English translations.
- 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 as 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.
- Incredible Shrinking Man: Green, Green Grass of Home protects the Green Baby by shrinking anyone who tries to get near it depending on how close they are to it. The Stand will attack whoever approaches the Green Baby once they have shrunken down to be way smaller than what it is. The Green Baby can nullify the effect if it gets interested in the object.
- 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.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: It's born with red eyes.
- Transflormation: Once the Green Baby begins to take form, it starts turning all the nearby prisoners in detainment into trees that spreads throughout their bodies.
- Unskilled, but Strong: With Green, Green Grass of Home, the Green Baby could potentially erase most opponents from existence just by grabbing them. But it's only an infant with no understanding of the threat Jolyne and her friends pose to its purpose.

The adoptive mother of Wes Bluemarine, otherwise known as Weather Report.
- Anime Hair: Her hair is styled into several small, oval-shaped buns.
- Dark and Troubled Past: She had led a difficult and unhappy life, and her baby being stillborn was the breaking point that led to her switching him with one of the Pucci family's newborn twins.
- Deathbed Confession: When Wes was 16, his mother became ill and did not expect to survive, so she went to church to confess to a priest what she had done all those years ago.
- Dub Name Change: The English dub changes her name to "Mrs. Aquamarine".
- Good Parents: Even though she stole Wes from his true family, it does seem that she loved him and did her best to give him a good life.
- Kill It with Fire: The KKK burned her house down to the ground, with the private detective implying that she was part of the casualty.
- Maligned Mixed Marriage: Her house ended up being burned down by the KKK when it was discovered that she married a black man.
- Moment of Weakness: Mrs. Bluemarine does not seem to be a bad person at heart, but it was her baby's death on top of everything else she had suffered that drove her to steal a baby from the hospital's nursery and leave her dead son in his place.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Although she raised Wes with love and care, she was never able to fully shake the guilt of stealing him from his family and making them believe he had been stillborn.
- Outliving One's Offspring: Her real son only lived for a few minutes before taking his final breath.
- Switched at Birth: When her baby was stillborn, she switched him with one of a set of newborn twins.
- Tragic Stillbirth: Her baby was stillborn at the same time the Pucci family had twin boys. Then she got the idea to switch her baby with one of them...
- Uncertain Doom: When Enrico discovered that his brother and sister were dating without knowing they were related, he hired a private detective to break them up, not knowing he had ties to the KKK. They discovered that Wes' mother had married a black man and burned down her house, implicitly killing her. Even if she somehow survived the house fire, she admits to Enrico in the confessional that she doesn't have much longer to live, so she's likely deceased in the present day regardless.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Because she raised Wes with no knowledge of his birth family, he unknowingly entered a romantic relationship with his sister Perla, and his twin brother Enrico would try to break them up, which resulted in Wes being hung by the KKK, Perla committing suicide after believing her boyfriend was dead, and Enrico falling into the teachings of DIO.
- Walking Spoiler: Talking about her reveals the circumstances behind Weather Report's and Enrico Pucci's shared past.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Due to Enrico being Ret-Gone in the new universe, it is unknown if Domenico/Wes grew up with his birth family this time, or Mrs. Bluemarine ended up raising him again.

The sister of Enrico Pucci and Wes Bluemarine. She commits suicide before the start of the story because she thinks Wes has been murdered, which causes Pucci's Start of Darkness. She is named after the British lingerie company La Perla.
- 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.
- Brother–Sister Incest: She doesn't live to find out about it, though.
- Cynicism Catalyst: For both Weather and Pucci. It was her death that ultimately drove both of them over the edge and towards their Start of Darkness. (Bonus points for her being their literal little sister)
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: She already threw herself off a cliff into a lake at that point, but when Pucci finds out that she killed herself, he runs through the lake over to her lifeless body and cradles her in his arms, mournfully screaming to the heavens that he wants his life to be taken instead of hers.
- Driven to Suicide: Kills herself after seeing Weather supposedly die.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She had blonde hair, and a sweet personality.
- Nice Girl: Was usually very sweet towards everyone she knew. The one time she smacked someone was only because she was getting assaulted.
- Posthumous Character: Dead long before the story's start.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Her death indirectly caused Pucci to become DIO's disciple, and therefore, kickstarted the plot of the part.

A detective that worked at the town where Enrico Pucci, Perla Pucci, and Wes Bluemarine lived at. Hired by Enrico to have Wes and Perla separated from their forbidden relationship, he turns out to be a member of a certain organization.
- Asshole Victim: Rightfully gets killed by Wes after waking up from being hung. With his own gun, no less.
- Deep South: In the English dub, he's given an extremely thick southern accent, emphasizing how he's a Klan member living in Florida, an actual southern state.
- Fat Bastard: Is rather overweight, and is not above asking for a kiss from Perla when he was just beating her boyfriend Wes up, and who was a minor.
- Hate Sink: A particularly nasty one in a world of already nasty ones. He is a member of the infamous KKK, where due to having investigated Wes' mother having been married to a black man, desides to initiate a riot alongside his cronies to hang Wes, burn his house down, and in the way, ask for a kiss from Perla, just because he was feeling lusty. When Perla smacks him from assaulting her, he has no qualms on punching her back. No one is sad to see him go when he is killed by Wes later.
- Karmic Death: The lynching and Perla's suicide is what caused Wes to become a complete sociopath, resulting in his town being ravaged by Heavy Weather, but he first tests out Heavy Weather on the detective, justifying it through him being the one who lynched and hung Wes.
- Killer Cop: He's a private detective, and a Klan member who has no qualms lynching black people and those who associate with them.
- The Klan: He is a member of the Ku Klux Klan itself. In the manga, the gang of zealots he brings with him to lynch Wes and assault Perla are shown wearing the iconic white hoods of the KKK; this aspect was bowdlerised in the anime.
- No Name Given: Is only known as a detective. Usually dubbed as the "racist detective".
- Politically Incorrect Villain: He's a member of the KKK, should be enough to explain.
- Posthumous Character: He gets killed years before the events of Stone Ocean.
- Pyromaniac: In addition to the other Klansmen carrying torches when they're lynching Wes, he states that they burned his mother's house down to the ground.
- Small Role, Big Impact: His unnecessary cruelty towards separating Perla and Wes causes Perla's suicide, which in turn starts Pucci's and Wes's Start of Darkness.
- Walking Spoiler: It can be very hard to say anything about this guy without mentioning that he's a Klan member, plays an important role to Pucci and Weather's backstory, and is the one who indirectly drove Perla to suicide.
Note that the epilogue characters are Walking Spoilers, so all spoilers are unmarked in their folders.

A counterpart to Jolyne from the universe created after Pucci's defeat. Her name is a Call-Back to one of Araki's earlier works, Gorgeous Irene.
- 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 Anakiss, though not officially. Her and Anakiss are going to her father to get his blessing to make it official.
- Letting Her Hair Down: Unlike Jolyne, who wears the hair in back in a braid, Irene has her hair down, symbolically showing how she's happier with her life.
- 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: There's next to nothing about her that can be discussed without acknowledging that Stone Ocean ends with Jolyne dying and the universe being reset.

A counterpart to Anasui from the universe created after Pucci's defeat.
- 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. Irene seems to genuinely be in love with him, meaning that he's most likely a much nicer and likeable person in this world.
- 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.

A counterpart to Ermes from the universe created after Pucci's defeat.
- Alternate Self: To Ermes like how Irene and Anakiss are this to Jolyne and Anasui. Her personality doesn't seem to be all that different from Ermes' compared to the other two, though.
- Do You Want to Haggle?: Anakiss says for her to hitch a ride, she needs to pay for some accommodations. Eldis tries her hardest to haggle her way out of it, settling on just giving him $10.
- Face of a Thug: She believes herself to have one, as she speculates that the bus driver isn't willing to let her on board because they think she's an escaped Green Dolphin Street Prison convict.
- Hot-Blooded: Just like Ermes. Her Establishing Character Moment has her arguing with a bus driver over not being permitted onto the bus.
- Kick the Dog: She tries to ask Emporio for change for $50, but they end up taking too long, causing the bus to drive off without her, complete with the bus driver throwing her purse out.
- Named by the Adaptation: In the manga, she was nameless, but was easily identifiable as Ermes' counterpart. In the anime, she was given the name Eldis, which begins with an E and ends with an S like Ermes' name does.
- Shout-Out: The shape of her purse◊ greatly resembles that of purses made by luxury brand Hermès, the namesake behind Ermes' first name.
- Stranger Safety: Although Irene and Anakiss are benevolent in letting her hitch a ride, she's reluctant to travel with them because her sister taught her not to trust strangers.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She acts just as crass and vulgar as Ermes does, but she also carries a purse around with her wherever she goes.
- Walking Spoiler: Much like with Irene and Anakiss, her existence would reveal the outcome of Stone Ocean and the three characters.
