Jolyne Cujoh (Stand: Stone Free)
Jolyne is the daughter of Jotaro Kujo. After being arrested for a crime she didn't commit, Jolyne is incarcerated in Green Dolphin State Penitentiary. Her father, realizing that something is amiss, sends her a package containing the tip of one of the Stand arrows, activating her latent abilities in the form of Stone Free. After her father is attacked by Whitesnake, she sets out to stop the priest Enrico Pucci and get Jotaro back to normal.
Her Stand is Stone Free, which allows her to unravel her body into strings. This has various applications, including hearing distant sounds similar to a tin can phone, manipulating objects by wrapping them up and pulling the strings around, and whatever else she can think of.
- Action Girl: She has shown to be capable of defending herself without her Stand, seen in full detail against Officer Westwood. She has extensive knowledge of self-defense, which she demonstrates throughout the series, notably against Pucci.
- Ambiguous Situation: She may or may not be incredibly intelligent, to savant levels, judging by some of the things she does requiring either amazing luck or a superhuman ability to calculate trajectories and probabilities while fighting, according to her enemies. Most people put it down to luck, but a recurring element is the fact that she's the opposite of Pucci, who literally seems to have either divine intervention or probability manipulation on his side, and thus is unlikely to have coincidence work out for her.
- Animal Motifs: Butterflies, and judging by the spider-web patterns on her clothes and the forms her strings take, spiders. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven even gives her the same clothing motif when she's a child.
- Anime Hair: Possesses the most unique hairstyle out of all of the JoJos, having Multicolored Hair, Braids of Action, and Odango all into one.
- Anyone Can Die: Even for a JoJo, she still dies at the end of the story.
- Arachnid Appearance and Attire: All of her outfits throughout the Part feature spiderweb-like printing on them.
- Badass Biker: She joined a biker gang when she was a teenager, and she is definitely badass.
- Badass Boast:"Hey, hey... Gwess. Didn't you once say that every thing should have a name? I want to give her a name too... Stone Free... I want to free myself from this stone ocean! Heard me? STONE FREE! This is her name!"
- Badass Family: She's the daughter of Jotaro, great-granddaughter of Joseph, and great-great-great-granddaughter of Jonathan. Need we say more?
- Badass Longcoat: Her prison coat after Jotaro's stand was stolen.
- Bare Your Midriff: Not a single outfit she's shown in her part has her wear anything that can cover her navel. Not even her alternate counterpart's.
- Berserk Button: Initially, Jotaro was this.
- Birthmark of Destiny: Like all the Joestars, Jolyne has a small star-shaped birthmark on the rear of her left shoulder, close to her neck.
- Broken Bird: Her father was absent for most of her life, not even coming home when she was very sick. She was so desperate for attention that she stole a car when she fourteen, joined a biker gang, and became pretty bitter. When she became an adult, she tried to clean up her act and go to college. Then she was framed for murder by her boyfriend, betrayed by her crooked lawyer, and sentenced to prison. Shortly after, she found out her father, whom she had disowned long ago, had sent her the means to defend herself and was trying to protect her. Then her father told her he had always cared for her right after getting hurt because he was protecting her and right before getting his soul and power stolen. Her reaction? Becoming a badass like all of her family to get her father back and kick all her enemies' butts in the process.
- Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: Butterflies are a motif in her character design. Her remains even turn into butterflies when she dies, and sure enough, she gets reborn in the new universe.
- Catch Phrase: "Yare yare dawa," the feminine equivalent of her father's.
- Call-Back: Much like how her ancestor Jonathan Joestar set his fist on fire to defeat her family's archnemesis Dio Brando in 1888, Jolyne set herself on fire 123 years later to defeat an enemy stand, a son of Dio no less.
- Caught with Your Pants Down: In the first chapter.
- Civvie Spandex: Her clothes seem to be inspired by this costume design — her Long Pants and her top share the same Spider-Man-like pattern and color-scheme, and she wears a loose long coat that resembles a cape. It wouldn't look out of place in the X-Men comics. Ironically, Jolyne is about as far from being a superhero as the series gets.
- Combat Pragmatist: It's a given in the JoJoverse, but out of almost all the JoJos in the series so far, she has the second most seemingly harmless ability, first being her grand-uncle Josuke Higashikata's Crazy Diamond. She uses her Stone Free to turn herself into string. Ordinary string. The very fact that she can weaponize this, let alone to this extent, shows how clever and smart she can be.
- Combat Tentacles: She can use her prehensile string in a few ways combat tentacles are used, such as grappling onto things and throwing things around, but most of the other ways are completely different.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Aside from being the first female main character Joestar and the first Joestar after Jonathan (or perhaps Jotaro himself) to actually have known her father when she was growing up, she's also the most visibly perverted and hedonistic Joestar to date. While Giorno is like if Dio grew up to be good, Jolyne is like if Joseph grew up to be very, very bad.
- Cool Big Sis: Towards Emporio. He even addresses her as onee-san ("big sister").
- Dark Is Not Evil: Wears dark colored clothing with spider and butterfly motifs and she is the heroine of Part 6.
- A Date with Rosie Palms: In the first scene of her story arc, no less! Lovable Sex Maniac, indeed!
- Delinquents: Must run in the family.
- Deconstructed Character Archetype: Before major Character Development kicks in, Jolyne starts out with many of the Joestar family's traits... but twisted into extreme flaws. Her hotblooded and berserk-button prone personality constantly led her into trouble with authority. Her flighty and impulsive behavior led her to make some extremely bad decisions. The lack of a consistent father figure did not inspire her to become truly independent or find an honorable person to emulate, but just made her resentful of Jotaro for his apparent inability to care about his family. Her delinquency has landed her in juvenile hall and later in jail. And finally, her extreme faith in her delinquent friends left her to be hung out to dry when they abandoned her. After meeting with her father, however...
- Reconstruction: She starts to emulate Jotaro's extreme stoicism while not losing her extreme passion, to the point she could even be more intense and determined than he is. And a lot of her flaws end up becoming her strengths when she finally gains friends who have the same undying loyalty to her that she has for them.
- Determinator: Her drive to rescue her father is what makes Pucci consider her a tough foe.
- Dub Name Change: The video game dubs turns Stone Free into a Title Drop.
- Eagleland: A mixture of type 1 and 2. Jolyne is the first American protagonist in the series and is very crass and aggressive, but she ultimately ends up being a heroic character.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: ...Of a sort. While Jolyne herself dies, in the new timeline that is established after Pucci is defeated, Irene's happily dating her boyfriend Annakiss, meets all her friends from the previous timeline and even has a better relationship with her dad.
- Another timeline created at the end of Eyes Of Heaven strongly implies that her father, who retains his memory of the game's events, will be around a lot more during her childhood. To the point where he lets her come along with him in what appears to be the beginning of Diamond is Unbreakable.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: She may be a crass delinquent, but feels guilt that her criminal behavior is making her mom cry and worry about her, and wants to hear her voice when she's incarcerated. Must run in the family, considering her father, a fellow delinquent, went to great lengths to protect his own mother.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: Her and her mom both have longer hair in one scene to indicate a flashback.
- Feel No Pain: Jolyne takes some of the hardest hits in the series without flinching, such as getting her hand literally turned inside out, bones jutting and flesh pulping and everything, or setting herself on fire.
- Flipping the Bird: She even demonstrates how to do it in several different cultures.
- Freudian Excuse: A psychoanalyst assigns her Disappeared Dad as the reason she's been Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places.
- Genius Bruiser: Played with. She's scrawnier than the JoJos that preceded her, but not only is she just as capable of outwitting her opponents, she's a much scrappier fighter to boot.
- Go Out with a Smile: Dies smiling in order to not only protect, but to comfort Emporio to the very end.
- Going Commando: She forgot to wear her panties once.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: One of Stone Free's applications is to quickly stitch up wounds - something which Jolyne finds herself using a lot.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: Although her main ability is to unravel her body into a string-like substance, she finds an incredibly diverse amount of ways to use this to her advantage.
- Another aspect of this is that she is one of the few main characters who has to channel her stand ability through her body, essentially giving her all the powers instead of her Stand. While this means that she can't use her floaty ghost partner to do all the heavy lifting, it does mean that said floaty ghost partner has both hands free to wreck shit up while Jolyne is busy with her strings. And Stone Free is quite the badass, even with only brute force.
- The Hero: Acts as this for most of the Part until her death, at which point Emporio takes her place.
- The Hero Dies: Bites the dust trying to save Emporio and making a Last Stand against Pucci.
- Heroic Lineage: Jolyne's personality is very similar to her great-grandfather Joseph's from the "Battle Tendency" and "Stardust Crusaders" era — very excitable, hot-headed, and snarky. Her kinder moments also bring his own to mind (her revival of Foo Fighters by wringing out her wet cloak on top of its remains is highly reminiscent of Joseph's pouring blood over a dying Wamuu to ease his pain, for instance). In a crisis situation, she's more like Jotaro — cold-blooded and willing to throw herself into danger without hesitation if need be. Her tactics are similar to both Joseph's and her father's — she's extremely quick-thinking and favors misdirection and mindgames like Joseph. She is also fond of lateral thinking like Jotaro, taking the most efficient and often unexpected route in a fight. She also has the recurring "conscience/spirit" resulting from character development that Josuke and Giorno were explicitly referred to as developing.
- Heroic Sacrifice: See the The Hero Dies above.
- In Series Nick Name: JoJo by her mother.
- Instant Knots: Justified, as the strings she unravels into are prehensile.
- Kick Chick: She fights with her stand but she kicks a lot!
- Knows the Ropes: She takes the rope tricks used by Joseph, Kakyoin and the like and turns them Up to Eleven. How? She can unravel herself into string and use its properties instead of merely using it to influence her surroundings.
- Lady Swearsalot: She even knows how to flip people off in four different languages!
- The Lad-ette: She's the rudest, crudest, horniest JoJo of them all.
- Lovable Sex Maniac: Jolyne is one of the most perverted JoJo's on par with her great-grandfather Joseph. Her first scene is of her complaining about a guard catching her masturbating.
- Jolyne is jealous of snails for rather eyebrow-raising reasons◊.
- Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places: She had relationships with some rather questionable men in the past — the most recent of which landed her in prison.
- Meaningful Name: In-universe, Stone Free is named after Jolyne's desire to escape jail, which she compares to a "stone ocean".
- Mixed Ancestry: At this point, her Joestar ancestry comes from all over the world: British, Italian, Japanese, and American.
- Morality Chain: Pretty much the only reason Anasui is trying to be something resembling good.
- Ms. Fanservice: Pretty face, curvy figure, and almost always has her stomach uncovered (complete with a navel piercing later on). Also, see She Cleans Up Nicely below.
- One of the manga covers has her covered in cuffs◊. Look closely enough and you can see she doesn't wear anything under them.
- Multicolored Hair: Considering the crowd she fell in with, it could actually be dyed.
- JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven implies she's had multicolored hair since she was a child, so either it's natural, or her parents are much laxer than initially thought.
- Naïve Newcomer: Her first days at Green Dolphin were a harsh learning of the prison's spoken and unspoken rules.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Weather Report had Pucci dead to rights and almost succeeded in killing him. Unfortunately right before he was able to land the killing blow Jolyne and co crashed the middle of their fight with a car distracting Weather long enough for Pucci to kill him.
- Odango: An interesting example in that not only does she have the two buns, but she has more hair wrapped around said buns as braids.
- Running Gag: She often forgets to wear her panties.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: She started doing poses during her cavity search. Not that her officers minded.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: For all of those who thought she looked too masculine in the original series, you might wanna see her◊ in◊ Spur Magazine's one-shot◊ where Araki Hirohiko's art development makes her absolutely gorgeous◊ to Ms. Fanservice levels.
- She's Got Legs: Often wears mini-skirts or leggings, or both, that show off her long and shapely legs.
- The Smurfette Principle: The only female JoJo in the series so far.
- Spell My Name with an "S": She signs her name "Jolyne Cujoh" and "CUJOH JOLYNE" appears in English text in the original Japanese manga, but most of the English-speaking fandom (and the French edition, for some reason) kept the romanization of her name identical to Jotaro's despite all evidence to the contrary.
- Statuesque Stunner: She's 175 cm tall (5 ft 9 inches), and extremely fit and attractive, not unlike her great-great-grandmother Lisa Lisa.
- Super Toughness: Once her Stand's ability gets going, she starts turning to string. Her body is then resistant to stabbing and blunt-force trauma due to the string absorbing all that energy.
- Swiss-Army Superpower: Jolyne's used her Stand ability as everything from stitchings to nets to Razor Floss.
- Town Girls: The Neither to Ermes' Tomboy and F.F.'s Girly Girl.
- Took a Level in Badass: Went into prison a flighty, love-starved delinquent and came out as a quick-thinking badass Determinator who pulls stunts like setting herself on fire to counteract an enemy Stand.
- Troubling Unchildhood Behavior: How many fourteen-year-olds do you know that have committed grand theft auto?
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Shares a hatred of alligators with Ermes after dealing with an invisible one in prison. She even throws something (a wedding ring Anasui was going to give to her) at one at random.
- You Shall Not Pass!: Gives her life to hold off Pucci just long enough for Emporio get to safety.
Jotaro Kujo (Stand: Star Platinum: The World)See Jotaro Kujo
Ermes Costello (Stand: Kiss)
A fellow inmate of Jolyne's, both before and after the transfer to Green Dolphin Street. While she claims to have gotten into jail for holding up a convenience store, it was a deliberate gambit so she could get close to the gangster Sports Maxx and kill him in revenge for the death of her sister Gloria, who was killed for accidentally witnessing his criminal operations.
Her Stand is Kiss, which allows her to duplicate any object by applying a special sticker to it. Once she removes the sticker, the two objects will violently recombine into one, resulting in damage to the original.
- Anyone Can Die: Dies during the universe reset.
- Bifauxnen: She's called Aniki (Older Brother) by Japanese fans due to her masculine appearance.
- Big Sister Mentor: To the extent, though the aforementioned nickname mocks her for being rather masculine looking.
- Contralto of Danger: Has the deepest voice of any woman in the franchise in All-Star Battle and Eyes of Heaven.
- Dreadlock Rasta: Has shoulder length dreadlocks.
- Dub Name Change: Her stand, from Kiss to Smack.
- Fatal Flaw: Impulsive to a fault, Ermes makes many decisions that go badly for her more often than not.
- Flight, Strength, Heart: Her Stand, Kiss, has excellent physical statsnote , but its main power of duplicating objects sounds rather weak compared to other Stands' more straightforward and offensive abilities. Like other Stand users however, she gets around that by being really creative with it.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: She has two Good Scars - one on her forehead and another on her chin.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: In classic JoJo fashion. The gambits she puts together with Kiss' stickers are incredibly clever and can be so complex that the reader may have trouble keeping up.
- Hot-Blooded: Definitely. But it's also her Fatal Flaw.
- Informed Ability: Araki gave Kiss an A in every stat except Precision (which got a C). If this is to be taken seriously, Ermes is more powerful than DIO, which definitely doesn't seem like the case in her actual appearances.
- The Lancer: To Jolyne.
- Tomboyish Voice: In Eyes of Heaven and All Star Battle, her voice is quite deep.
- Lady Swearsalot: A frequent offender in certain translations.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Yes, you got your revenge. Unfortunately, killing him had the not-so-minor side effect of putting his Stand into overdrive...
- Not Quite Flight: Uses her stickers on a harpoon (which the Speedwagon foundation launched into the Kennedy Space Center's visitor center) to get Jotaro and herself to Pucci's location.
- Put on a Bus: After the fight with Sports Maxx Ermes ends up being put in the infirmary and doesn't get out until Jolyne decides to break out of Green Dolphin. Ironically she wasn't out for that long, at least four or so days, it's just that a lot happened in that time.
- Spell My Name with an "S": For years, people used "Hermes" as that was the name of the fashion label she was named after. JOJOVELLER and her S.A.S action figure corrected that.
- Spicy Latina: She's Mexican on her father's side, and just as Hot-Blooded as any Joestar.
- Town Girls: The Tomboy to Jolyne's Neither and F.F.'s Girly Girl.
- Treasure Chest Cavity: Had her breasts surgically altered so that she could smuggle money into prison.
- Vengeance Feels Empty: Inverted. Killing Sports Maxx made her feel great.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: After dealing with an invisible alligator in prison, she and Jolyne come to despise them all in general.Ermes: They think they're so goddamned safe, just 'cause they're a protected species!
- You Killed My Father: Sports Maxx killed her elder sister because she witnessed him performing a mob hit. Ermes got herself imprisoned at Green Dolphin on purpose, just to have a shot at killing him while he was serving time for racketeering.
Emporio Alniño (Stand: Burning Down the House)
A little boy who was born within Green Dolphin Street's walls. He has complex knowledge on the prison's layout due to a life of constantly sneaking around it.
His Stand, Burning Down the House, forms a pocket dimension that emulates the "ghost" of the prison's music room before it was destroyed in a blaze. He later gains use of Weather Report.
- 11th-Hour Superpower: He tricked Pucci into pushing Weather Report's Stand disc into him, thus giving him access to Heavy Weather. Ironically, he doesn't use Heavy Weather's unique ability that made it an 11th-Hour Superpower to Weather Report, instead opting for its most basic (albeit enhanced by lingering vestiges of Weather Report's sheer hatred as well as being in a small room) ability to generate oxygen.
- Adorably Precocious Child: Despite being only eleven years old, he is the one entrusted with the task of driving both a car and a helicopter.
- Bag of Holding: After leaving the Green Dolphin prison this is how Emporio uses his Stand. By using a small bag that he carries inside his belt he can hold various items the group needs including a computer and Jotaro's Memory Disc. The latter becomes very important in the final fight with Pucci as Emporio holds onto Weather Report's Stand and implants it into his own body to use against Pucci.
- Bigger on the Inside: Burning Down the House is pretty similar to the last part's Mr. President, being an extradimensional space that emulates Green Dolphin's music room as it was before fire destroyed it.
- Break the Cutie: His mom was a prisoner and he's been hiding in a prison his whole life, so he's pretty broken by the time the series starts. And that is not getting to the events of Stone Ocean itself... culminating in the deaths of all of his comrades and having to live with their Alternate Universe selves with the guilt of being the only one from the original universe.
- The Chew Toy: He goes through an incredible amount of pain and torture throughout the series. One of the most cringe-inducing is the part where he only remembers the last three things he learned after a certain point, so he repeatedly touches an electrified puddle of water, screaming and crying in agony. Each time, the only thing he remembers are the things he must do to help Jolyne, so he repeats the process again...and again...and again.
- Combo Platter Powers: He, along with Dio, is the only character to own two Stands. Additionally, he's the only character ever to use two Stands simultaneously — he fights Pucci in the hidey-hole he generates using Burning Down The House at the same time that he uses Weather Report to attack him with oxygen.
- Creepy Child: Thanks to his Stand ability to live in the "memories" of places, he can appear in random corners of Stone Ocean.
- Determinator: The premier example in Stone Ocean. He will not stop trying to help his friends. Because of this, he's the only one to survive against and ultimately defeat Pucci.
- Final Guy: Emporio is the only character to survive Pucci's plot. Granted that destroying Made in Heaven restores the slain heroes in slightly altered form, but...
- Foil: Ultimately one to Pucci in too many ways to list but most noticeably; Both were non prisoners at Green Dolphin Prison, both had a friend they deeply cared about,were entrusted by that person to carry on if they fell with something, and avenged said friend after they fell in order to achieve a better world.
- Guile Hero: He has very few combative capabilities, so he usually hides from or outwits any enemies he faces.
- Had To Be Sharp: Was forced to wisen up due to growing up in a prison and being at the potential mercy of violent criminals and guards.
- The Hero: He is the one to bring down Pucci by dint of being the only hero left alive.
- Meaningful Name:
- Burning Down the House manifests rooms that were, well, burned down.
- Emporio is the old word for warehouse, and he utilizes his Stand as storage Hammer Space.
- His last name, Alniño, is a portmanteau of Armani, a fashion brand, and El Niño, which Spanish for 'The Boy', but also means a climate pattern that makes weather warmer than normal. His stand is called Burning Down the House, and eventually gains use of Weather Report, and uses its abilities in conjunction with Burning Down the House to kill Pucci.
- Mission Control: Spends most of the arc in his Stand pocket dimension, providing Jolyne with information and advice on dealing with the prison and Stand Users. He's forced to take action himself after Jolyne dies saving him from Pucci.
- Nice Guy: While a bit odd and creepy, Emporio is unfailingly kind and loyal to Jolyne and the rest of the group (except perhaps Anasui).
- The Protagonist: After Jolyne kicks the bucket, he becomes the protagonist of the final three chapters of Stone Ocean.
- Sole Survivor: He is the last man standing amongst the Stone Ocean crew, even outliving Jolyne and Jotaro.
- Superpowerful Genetics: While it was unknown whether or not Emporio's mother was an actual Stand User herself, she also was able to manipulate "ghost objects" exactly like he can.
- Taking You with Me: Seems implied in his final stand against Pucci since Weather Report poison air seems to be affecting him too. He manages to live since the universe being remade saves him at the last second. Well that and Pucci is being pummeled by Weather Report.
- Took a Level in Badass: He gains Weather Report as a Stand, and is basically the one to kill Enrico Pucci.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: Due to growing up in prison raised only by his mother, a library, and the internet.
F.F. (Stand: Foo Fighters)
A colony of zooplankton that gained consciousness and the stand Foo Fighters when Pucci threw its disc into the ocean. The line between Stand and user is rather blurry, and Foo Fighters' ability simply amounts to manipulating the plankton into various configurations (although, as with any other stand, the applications are diverse). After its defeat and befriending by Jolyne, it decides to possess the corpse of a female prisoner named Atroe.
She is named after the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.
- Ambiguous Gender: Well, she originally has No Biological Sex, so it makes sense. While her body is female, her behavior isn't especially masculine or feminine, and while she uses the feminine pronoun "atashi" (most likely emulating Jolyne), her speech patterns are rather masculine. The characters and fandom always refer F.F. with "She/Her" pronouns.
- Anime Hair: It's way too smooth to actually look like hair. It's more like someone stuck half a broken eggshell on her head.
- Arm Cannon: Can morph her index finger and thumb into a gun.
- Badass Adorable: A colony of plankton possessing the corpse of a Shrinking Violet, F.F. herself is also quite the Cloudcuckoolander.
- Berserk Button: Do not drink her water. Do not take her water away from her. Do not even sit next to her water.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Skirts it a bit due to her lack of worldly experience.
- Combat Medic: Can heal deadly wounds by filling them with her plankton and sewing them on a microscopical level, which makes her very valuable as the healer. However she can also fire pieces of said plankton like bullets, which, coupled with her ability to withstand a massive amount of damage, makes her just as useful as a fighter.
- Defeat Means Friendship: Starts as an antagonist, but befriends Jolyne and Ermes after her HeelFace Turn.
- Dying as Yourself: Foo Fighter's greatest fear was losing her intelligence and not being able to say goodbye to her friends if she died. Therefore she's actually quite happy that, even though she died, she got to say goodbye to Jolyne and tells her not to bring back her disc as the new Foo Fighter wouldn't be her.
- Foreshadowing: Foo Fighter's last words to Jolyne that if she's reborn, she won't have the memories and experiences of the first Foo Fighter. This actually foreshadows the effects of the reborn universe thanks to Pucci, whereby those killed by Made in Heaven will be reborn as slightly different versions of themselves but without the memories or experiences their original counterparts went through.
- From a Single Cell: Since her body is made out of sentient plankton that can quickly multiply, she can survive as long as just a little piece of her body stays intact and grow the rest of the body back from said little piece in a matter of seconds.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: Due to her nature, Foo Fighters can recover from pretty much any injury as long as a piece of her is able to get to a water source. Also, like GioGio's ability, she can use some of her plankton to patch up the others when they get hurt, but the process is very uncomfortable.
- HeelFace Turn: Jolyne's decision to save her life, even though they were enemies, motivated her to join Jolyne's side and protect her from future threats.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Expends the last of her already-depleted plankton to save Anasui.
- Humanity Is InfectiousEver since she met Jolyne Cujoh at the farmlands... she has remembered everything she's experienced since then. The weird graffiti on the public phones. The feeling of the covers on the bead and the smell of garbage. The sound of doors opening and closing. The sound of the toilet... Making small talk with Jolyne. Jolyne making fun of her toes, saying they were shaped weird... She remembers everything... But everything before the incident at the farmlands... Just blindly obeying orders, not even knowing why. She just protected Whitesnake's disc. That's all she remembers.
- Imagination-Based Power: Her plankton can morph into almost anything, really.
- Only a Flesh Wound: Due to the nature of her ability, she's able to survive a bullet to the brain, but she loses Atroe's body.
- Progressively Prettier: Foo Fighter's stand form originally looked rather malformed and long faced, but later becomes more humanoid and looks more like Atroe to represent its growing humanity.
- Puppeteer Parasite/The Worm That Walks: Of a sort: Foo Fighters is an independently intelligent Stand created by a colony of plankton, animating the body of a dead woman.
- Ret-Gone: She refuses Jolyne's offer to take the F.F. disc, on the grounds that even if it's placed into something else, it won't be her. Keeping with this, she's the only hero not to have a counterpart in the new world after Pucci's defeat.
- Serial Escalation: One could probably accept hawks, dogs and even tortoises getting stand powers. But plankton?!
- Spell My Name with an "S": As with most of the characters in Stone Ocean, F.F.'s name was no exception, as most people used "Etro" to refer to the prisoner whose body she inhabits, and "Atroe" was shown to be the official translation.
- Town Girls: The Femme to Ermes' Tomboy and Jolyne's Neither.
- Token Non-Human: The heroes' team has badass women, badass men, and badass corpse-possessing plankton?
- Turned Against Their Masters: She was originally a colony of plankton that Pucci imbued with a Stand and intelligence in order to protect his large stockpile of stolen Stand discs. However, after befriending Jolyne Foo Fighter's decided to help her fight against Pucci instead - a fact that he was not happy about.
- Uplifted Animal: Like other animals in the series who gained a Stand. And yes, even a colony of plankton can gain human intelligence and superpowers this way.
- Victoria's Secret Compartment: After taking over Atroe's body, F.F. hides Star Platinum's Stand Disc inside her cleavage. However, she has to inflate her breasts slightly with plankton to make sure it stays hidden.
- Weak Sauce Weakness: Because she's a corpse filled with plankton, Foo Fighters has to be constantly hydrated.
- Weaponized Teleportation: F.F. can travel through bodies of water almost instantaneously. She uses this offensively by dragging opponents along for the ride, drowning them in the process.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Averted after F.F. is defeated and joins Jolyne's side.
- Worf Had the Flu: Has an unlucky streak of running out of water at least once per fight.
- Younger Than They Look: Is only a few years old.
Weather Report/Wes Bluemarine (Stand: Weather Report)
A male prisoner. His memory disc was stolen by Pucci, and since he can't even remember his name, he simply goes by that of his weather-manipulating Stand, Weather Report.
- '80s Hair: In flashbacks.
- Amnesiac Dissonance: Normally, he's stoic, soft-spoken, and basically a good person. When he gets his memory back, He suffers violent mood swings between pre and post-amnesia before eventually calming down for his final fight with Pucci.
- Amnesiac Hero: Played for drama, as his memories returning cause devastating effects, not to mention he's not really nice as his real self.
- Anime Hair: Subverted. What many mistake for his hair is actually just a flat-topped buffalo hat. Granted, his actual hair is still rather weird, but a lot more believable than having actual horns in his hair.
- Badass Family: He's actually Enrico Pucci's twin brother, and easily the superior one.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: Not counting how Enrico is Obliviously Evil, there's the whole BrotherSister Incest thing with their younger sister, Perla, though he didn't know about that, with the whole Switched at Birth ordeal.
- Baleful Polymorph: Heavy Weather, which turns living things into snails.
- Birthmark of Destiny: Also inherits the Star mark via his connections to Enrico.
- Bright Is Not Good: Baleful Polymorph rainbows!
- BrotherSister Incest: An unwitting variety, what with the whole Switched at Birth problem. Enrico's reaction to this sets in motion the events that will lead to him being fully under Dio's influence...
- Cain and Abel: With Enrico, though with his memories returned, he comes across as the bigger Jerkass, killing a doctor for no reason.
- Though he is killed by Pucci, Pucci having to extract "Weather Report" to win came back to bite him when Emporio uses it to kill Pucci.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Apparently how Heavy Weather works. Observers start thinking they're snails on a subconscious level, so they start actually turning into snails. Although there are some implications that the whole thing is one big mass hallucination or induced mental illness.
- Chick Magnet: If your chicks are slugs anyway.
- Death Seeker: Although he becomes just as omni-vengeful after regaining his memory as before losing it, Weather quickly decides it's better for the world if he and his Stand are dead. He just needs to make sure it's meaningful by taking Enrico with him. Doesn't quite work...
- Dub Name Change: All-Star Battle and Eyes of Heaven change his name to Weather Forecast.
- Hand Wave: Heavy Weather manipulates the ozone to cause light to refract oddly, making observers subliminally think they are snails, which causes them to actually become snails. Araki handwaves this nonsense application of weather control by pointing out that meteorology only extrapolates from past events and still can't predict the weather, there could be crazy things like snail transfiguration that we simply haven't observed yet.
- Imagination-Based Superpower: It seems that Weather Report's power allow his to do anything so long as it can be described as a weather phenomenon. This includes raining frogs and rainbows encoded with subliminal messages that turn people into snails.
- In-Series Nickname: He was apparently known as Weather in high school.
- Jerkass: He becomes a much less pleasant person after he gets his memories back, obsessed with revenge against Pucci.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite this, he's also motivated to take Foo Fighter and Jotaro's memory disks, showing that his sense of righteousness still remains.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Courtesy of Enrico using Whitesnake to extract his memory disc, Weather has absolutely no recollection of his time before he appeared in the Green Dolphin Prison. Considering what happens after he gets his memory back, that's a good thing.
- Nice Hat: A flat-topped buffalo hat.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: We don't know if it's intentional, but his fuzzy horned hat makes him look a lot like Jay Kay, to the point where one fan made a Virtual Insanity parody with Weather Report.
- No Sense of Personal Space: Tends to lean in very closely when he's speaking.
- Older Than They Look: Turns out to be thirty-nine, just like his twin brother Pucci.
- Personality Powers: Heavy Weather is a manifestation of his misanthropy.
- Power Incontinence: Weather Report never really had the best of control over Heavy Weather, which is part of why Enrico took his memories in the first place.
- Power Limiter: His amnesia keeps him from gaining full access to his powers. Once the memories come back, everything goes to hell.
- Power of the Storm: Weather Report, natch. Then again, not many people have ever weaponized raining frogs before...
- The Quiet One: Till he gets back his memories and returns to being a Jerkass
- Rain of Something Unusual: Weather Report can make it rain frogs, including poison dart frogs that are deadly to the touch.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: When the goons Pucci hired went farther than planned (he didn't know they were KKK) and hung Weather, and drove Perla to suicide, Weather came to desire revenge against the entire world, in the process awakening his Stand. In Heavy Weather mode. When Donatello restores Weather's memory, we're back to Heavy Weather.
- Superpowered Evil Side: Not only does his power become harmful due to the fact he can't turn off his snail transfiguration ability, he's also much more of a jerk than before.
- Superpower Lottery: At full power Weather Report/Heavy Weather's abilities make Weather a global threat, able to control rain storms, turn people into snails, and suck all of the oxygen out of a room. It's pretty telling that, had Jolyne and co not distracted Weather at the critical moment, he would have successfully killed Pucci. And his Stand still manages to kill Pucci even after the latter gains the ability to speed up time.
- Switched at Birth: A mother whose own child was stillborn stole him, and made him think she was his biological mother—in the process leaving his fraternal twin Enrico Pucci without his brother. And, more importantly, left Perla without the knowledge that she had more than one brother...
- Took a Level in Badass: The initial description of his Stand indicates that he can only affect the weather in the air immediately around him. After the requisite first bout of nearly dying, he can legitimately make it rain outdoors. Then he gains Heavy Weather.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As shown during flash backs during his time as Wes Bluemarine he used to be a kind man with a strong sense of justice. However after the Klu Klux Klan members that Pucci unwittingly hired beat Wes to (almost) death, strung him up on a tree, and caused his girlfriend to commit suicide, Wes became enraged at the entire world enough to develop Heavy Weather.
- Walking Spoiler: Weather's true identity, his status as Pucci's brother, and the true extent of his abilities are all important plot twists in the last third of this Part.
- Weather Manipulation: As his Stand's name suggests, Weather Report can control the weather. This ranges from rain, wind, and lightning, to more out-there phenomena such as frog rain. Once he regains his memories, he can even manipulate the ozone layer itself to project subliminal messages which hypnotize people into thinking they're snails.
- Worf Had the Flu: At full power, and once he gets his memory's back, Weather easily has the most broken Stand of the entire main cast. So it's pretty telling that after the fight with Jumpin' Jack Flash, he spends the next 50 or so chapters in the infirmary and only gets out after the main cast has left the prison and the group is forced up against enemy's that can warp reality.
- Your Mind Makes It Real: Maybe. The translation is kind of unclear, but we know that the way Heavy Weather works is by manipulating the ozone layer to change the properties of sunshine, in a way which causes rainbows to appear more easily and subliminally affects the mind; Pucci proves that being completely unable to see makes you immune to the effect, and everything goes back to normal immediately when Weather dies, which all makes it seem more like the weird rainbows just slowly convince people that everything is snails.
Narciso Anasui (Stand: Diver Down)
A cross-dressing male prisoner convicted of murdering his girlfriend and her lover. Despite Emporios claims that he would never help anyone for any reason, he decides to help with Jolyne's quest after falling in love with her at first sight, despite her having no interest in him.
His Stand, Diver Down, can dive into objects to later ambush opponents or tamper with the objects' inner workings.
- Ax-Crazy: His obsession with "taking things apart" doesn't stop at inanimate objects...
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": Diver Down has stylized Gothic "D"s on its forehead and body.
- Camp Straight: With his fairly effeminate appearance and crossdressing tendencies, you'd be surprised to find out that the guy was sent to jail for murdering his girlfriend. Then there's his obsessive attraction towards Jolyne... Unfortunately for him, she isnt in the least bit interested in him.
- He initially uses Diver Down to mess with the insides of people in brutal fashions, such as turning Kenzo's legs into springs by shattering and rearranging his bones. As he becomes a kinder person, he instead uses Diver Down to protect people by going inside of them and taking the damage they would have received, such as saving Jotaro from a fatal neck slice during the fight against Pucci.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Freaks out when Jolyne hugs Weather Report, and in Eyes Of Heaven, he briefly turns hostile upon seeing a 17-year-old Jotaro with Jolyne. (Granted, he didn't know they were father and daughter at the time, but still...)
- Creepy Crossdresser: Skirts pretty close to it, which is the in-universe explanation for his appearance, though considering how his Stand can rearrange things from the inside, he may have decided to change it to make him more feminine for whatever reason.
- Dogged Nice Guy: "Nice" is stretching it a bit, though.
- Dub Name Change: For both himself and his Stand; in the English version of All-Star Battle, he becomes Narc Anastasia, while his Stand becomes Diver Drive. One can only sympathize with the translators since the real names could have opened them up to three separate lawsuits.
- Everyone Has Standards: Even Anasui gets freaked out by Weather Report's sudden increase in Jerkassary after his memory is restored.
- Fantastic Racism: He is the only one in the hero side that calls F.F. "plankton".
- Global Ignorance: A Running Gag has him wondering where Mickey Mouse is. Someone should probably tell him that Port St. Lucie and Orlando are a good 100 miles apart.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Downplayed and Played for Laughs, perhaps. At one point, he goes over the top trying to court Jolyne in front of Jotaro, asking for his permission to marry her. Jotaro, being in completely new territory here, doesn't know what to do, so he eventually just grabs Jolyne and tries to hide her behind him, telling Anasui to never so much as touch her and at the same time also indicating that he really does care about his daughter. Mission accomplished.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How he meets his end, impaled by Pucci using Jolyne's Stone Free.
- Ironic Death: He meets his end impaled by Stone Free after Pucci's meddling during Made In Heaven, inadvertently dying to the Stand of the woman he loved most.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Or... tarnished bronze. He has a vaguely altruistic side, is the point. He's willing to die for his friends, at least.Though this is only for Jolyne.
- Jerkass: To everyone except Jolyne and Jotaro.
- Heroic Sacrifice: With his dying breath, he offers up his body for Foo Fighter to take so that she herself could stave off death. She one-ups him by using the last of her power to heal him. F.F.'s sacrifice heavily affects him by the end of the story, and citing her example, he makes himself the primary target for the Made In Heaven-empowered Pucci by openly using Diver Down to give everyone Super Toughness. His plan to give Jotaro an opening required his complete impalement.
- The Lancer: A secondary one after Ermes is Put on a Bus following her battle with Sports Maxx. Even after she returns right in time for everyone to break out of jail, he retains the role in the "standoffish-but-loyal foil" style to the "close ally" lancer-mold of the former.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Initially a shorter-haired girl before the Unsettling Gender Reveal.
- Love at First Sight: Claims to have fallen in love with Jolyne at the very first sight of her.
- Love Redeems: His love for Jolyne and the impact of F.F.'s Heroic Sacrifice ultimately causes him to clean up his act.
- Mr. Fanservice: His mesh shirt exposes his muscular body.
- New Powers as the Plot Demands: More that Araki had difficulty remembering the exact nature of Diver Down's powers.
- Nice Hat: About as cool as Weather Report's.
- Not in This for Your Revolution: Makes it clear to the group that his only motive in helping defeat Pucci is to gain Jolyne's love and approval, and that he has no loyalty towards anyone else. That being said, as the adventure continues, he begins to gain some appreciation for his friends and allies.
- Retcon: His gender, mentioned below. His Stand abilities also started out as being able to delay and extend kinetic energy within and out of objects, but were retconned into Diver Down being able to phase through objects and rearrange their insides, more in line with his fascination of taking things apart. Which may explain why he initially looked female, since he rearranged his body to look that way for some reason in-verse.
- Sociopathic Hero: Wants to take things apart.
- Stalker with a Crush: His ideas for courting Jolyne leave something to be desired. Trying to get F.F. to push Jolyne down a flight of stairs, just so he can catch her, and trigger her love for her savior? Um...
- Straight Man: Surprisingly enough, when he and Weather Report are paired up and off on their own during the post-escape chapters. He's the only one of the two who has any real knowledge of the outside world, leading to him commenting on Weather's ignorant antics, and when Heavy Weather turns out to be an even more Sociopathic Hero than he was at his worst, all he can do is react with the shock and horror that any reasonable person would show at such antics as electrocuting two girls and subconsciously turning everyone into snails.
- Swapped Roles: In his introductory chapter, Emporio describes him as a twisted murderer whose nature is only kept in check by Weather Report's presence.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: His pink hair, mesh shirt, lipstick and aggressive demeanor are strongly reminiscent of Vento Aureo's Diavolo.
- Token Evil Teammate: He tries to become a better person to get together with Jolyne. But fails most of time.
- Unsettling Gender Reveal: Originally, this character was going to be a woman simply named Anasui or Anna Sui, but Araki decided that he needed another male ally for Jolyne in addition to Emporio and Weather. After the original female template had been drawn while inside Burning Down the House. Ermes is actually pretty surprised to find that Anasui's actually male.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Technically he's wearing a mesh shirt. And even then, it's more like he wrapped himself in maybe a dozen strips of thread and called it good.
- Yandere: He ended up in prison for murdering his ex-girlfriend for cheating on him. He's also quite violent towards anyone who he perceives as getting in the way between him and Jolyne.
Enrico Pucci (Stands: Whitesnake, C-Moon, Made in Heaven)
The mysterious assailant who stole Jotaro's Memory and Stand Discs. His name is later revealed to be Enrico Pucci, a Catholic priest who serves as Green Dolphin's prison chaplain. Pucci was Dio's dearest disciple. Seeking to attain Dio's idea of heaven, he engineered the framing of Jolyne so that Jotaro would come visit her in jail. This gives Pucci the opportunity to steal the memories of Jotaro, the only person who read Dio's personal notes before destroying them.
His Stand, Whitesnake, allows him to steal a person's soul in the form of two discs: one for memories and one for a Stand. These discs can be implanted in others, allowing Pucci to create Stand-users from normal people. He can also implant orders using custom-made discs. After fusing with the Green Baby, his Stand changes to C-Moon, and gains gravity-changing powers instead. At the next new moon at Cape Canaveral, his Stand changes once more into Made In Heaven which has the power to accelerate time to the point that the universe resets itself with a Big Crunch and then a Big Bang but now in his image.
He is named after the fashion designers Enrico Coveri and Emilio Pucci. His Stands are named after the band Whitesnake, the Wings song "C Moon", and either the Led Zeppelin song "Stairway to Heaven" or the Freddie Mercury song "Made in Heaven".
- Affably Evil: In a bit of a departure for the series' main villains (barring Kira and perhaps Dio on a good day), Pucci is pretty good-humored. When he gets pissed, it's usually because he's being pushed or, by the end of the series, has become deranged, and he doesn't bother to hide it. A big part of it is that he doesn't perceive himself as being amoral and thus isn't prone to being a Jerkass.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: His last action in Stone Ocean consists of begging Emporio, a child he had tried to kill moments before, for his life. It's less out of self-preservation, but if he dies before the cycle is complete, he won't achieve Heaven.
- All for Nothing: All of the sacrifices and plans made by DIO and Pucci are rendered meaningless when Emporio kills Pucci as Made in Heaven prepares to finish resolving, but before its changes can become set. The resultant Cosmic snap-back erases Pucci from existence entirely and (mostly) restores the heroes (including the Joestars, who Pucci took it upon himself to erase) not just to life, but to a much happier state of being.
- Ambiguously Brown: Presumably, he's half-black, half-white. Half-White Italian, to be more precise. He could be the child of full-blooded Sicilians, who often have African heritage and as a race resemble mixed-race African-Caucasians, which would explain his varied family.
- He's related by blood to Weather Report, who was lynched and almost killed by the Investigation Agency that he hired (because they were associated with the KKK) for going out with Pearla.
- It should be noted that the Klansmen in question lynched Weather Report because his adoptive mother had liaisons with a black man, and the leader of the Investigation Agency describes Weather as someone who "looks white, but is actually black" (under the false assumption that he inherited his blackness from his non-biological mother's lover). Pucci himself is drawn with darker features than anyone else in the manga, including Weather Report and the other members of his family. As such, it is possible that Pucci is in fact a classic anime example of Ambiguously Brown rather than actually black, although this is a big point of debate and contention among fans.
- Ambiguously Gay: Shown in a flashback to be lying in bed with a shirtless Dio, implying that they had just made love. And Word of God does confirm that Dio would romantically pursue anyone who earns his respect, male or female.
- Avenging the Villain: His primary reason for fighting the JoJos is to avenge Dio's death, though it has more to do with Villainous Friendship than Blind Obedience, let alone Undying Loyalty.
- Badass Baritone: Just look at their Japanese voice actors.
- Badass Family: Both he and his brother, aka, Weather Report are very strong Stand users.
- Badass Longrobe: The garment he's wearing looks like a mix between a cassock and a greatcoat, and he's definitely a badass.
- It's actually not a robe at all. He's wearing a black dress-like garment and a tight fitting shirt with matching designs. The belt he wears helps hide the fact that they're not actually attached.
- Though some images do show it clearly being a single robe, other images also show the upper portion riding up his torso (i.e. as a shirt), so it depends on Araki's mood.
- Badass Preacher: He's the Big Bad of Stone Ocean and just so happens to be a priest.
- Big Bad: Of Stone Ocean.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: He and his brother, Wes Bluemarine (born Domenico Pucci, but known by this part's Joestar Group as Weather Report), were separated at birth, which eventually resulted in BrotherSister Incest with the latter becoming a couple with their younger sister. Pucci was understandably worried about this.
- Biseinen: He may be over 40, but he's a gorgeous biseinen.
- Bishōnen Line: Not himself directly, but his Stand goes from an Ambiguously Human being to a semi-monstrous Humanoid Abomination and finally to a small centaurian being.
- Byronic Hero: A tragic figure with a Dark and Troubled Past that made him wonder why people have to suffer, which eventually led him to being corrupted by Dio and becoming a Knight Templar.
- Cain and Abel: The Abel to Wes Bluemarine's Cain. He's shy, reserved and emotionally withdrawn, contrasted nicely with his brother's outgoing and confident demeanour. In a twist, Pucci ends up the victor in their duel, only to be killed later by Wes's Stand, Weather Report.
- Character Development: He starts off rather shy and withdrawn, even coming off as unsure of his ability to achieve heaven, and many of his minions in the prison even talk back to him aggressively. As the tide starts to turn in his favor, he becomes far more confident and headstrong, best exemplified by the way he commands and orders around DIO's sons. By the end he has gone off the deep end, having become a violent, overconfident and obsessed Knight Templar.
- Character Tic: He counts off prime numbers when losing due to their indivisibility giving him a sense of security. Interestingly, we actually see him develop this habit during the story in reaction to all the stress, and being new to it, he has a bit of trouble figuring out the larger prime numbers.
- Combo Platter Powers: His stand is able to extract Stands and memories out of people, as well as produce hallucinogenic gas.
- The Comically Serious: He is mostly reserved and serious most of the time, but even he is prone to some humorous moments in the series. One scene has him show off eating a cherry without removing the seeds from the stem. Another has him use Whitesnake to transform Guccio's body into a loudspeaker blaring out music, prompting him to spread his arms out in reverence.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist:
- Diavolo hid from view as best he could and had unconventional, inscrutable motives. The most we knew of him is that he really, really didn't want to be known about. Pucci, on the other hand, hides in plain sight as a kindly priest and had more relatable motives, having turned evil through tragedy and poisonous friends. Made especially blatant in this instance by "Diavolo" being the Italian word for devil, and Pucci's occupation as a holy man. Both Diavolo and Pucci despise the concept of Fate. But while Diavolo constantly tries to run from his fate at any cost, Pucci accepts it as an inevitability and instead tries to bring happiness by making people aware of their own fate. Pucci's Whitesnake narratively functions similarly to King Crimson, acting as Pucci's mouthpiece like King Crimson does with Diavolo. Unlike King Crimson, however, Whitesnake seems to possess a personality of its own, acting independently from Pucci.
- Pucci also stands out from the rest of his predecessors until Funny Valentine in that his motivations are genuinely well-meaning. Whereas the previous Big Bads' motivations are to attain power or simply For the Evulz, Pucci wants to achieve what he considers happiness for everyone.
- Cynicism Catalyst: His overall Freudian Excuse for his actions along with his Villainous Friendship to Dio. He indirectly caused his younger sister's death in an attempt to keep her from unwittingly starting a romantic relationship with his long-lost twin brother Wes Bluemarines, which he then attributed to the power of fate and became Dio's follower.
- Determinator: He is incredibly dangerous due to an uncanny ability to find another way to fight despite being faced with defeat.
- Dragon Ascendant: Initially Dio's most loyal follower as well as one of his several Co-Dragons (with Vanilla Ice and Enya the Hag), he escalates to Big Bad to fulfil his late master's last request.
- Dub Name Change: All-Star Battle changes his Stand to Pale Snake, Full Moon, and Maiden Heaven. He himself is only called Father Pucchi, with no reference to his given name.
- Enemy Mine: Temporary calls a ceasefire between him and Jolyne to deal with Heavy Weather, which serves as a threat to everyone.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His entire Freudian Excuse is how he is responsible for his little sister's death, and the reason he's adamant on killing Jotaro is to avenge his friend's death.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Video-game adaptations normally give Pucci a deep, melodious voice.
- Exotic Eye Designs: His eyes have crosses over them in early appearances. Later on, he is Pie-Eyed.
- Eye Scream: Twice. The first time he uses Whitesnake to remove his own eyesight in an effort to protect himself from Heavy Weather, which activates on sight. The second time happens during the final battle when Jolyne manages to injure him, notably, this is the only attack that successfully lands on Pucci during the final showdown.
- The Fatalist: Pucci buys into the idea that everything that happens is destined to happen. His fatalism also plays into his faith as a priest; his life is riddled by strange and usually beneficial coincidences, which he equates with the will of God. Because he feels his meeting with Dio and developing his Stand at a crucial time in his life was fate, anything he does in service of Dio, he interprets as following God's will. Though that said, he honestly seems to care more about Dio than God.
- Fingore: During his first real fight with Jolyne Pucci deliberately shoved his own crucifix beneath his fingernail in order to give him a slightly longer reach for a close-quarters fight.
- Final Boss: The very last opponent of the last part taking place in the original continuity, and arguably the most powerful and dangerous one as well. Fittingly, he gets the closest out of any antagonist in the entire series to fully winning and wiping his enemies out.
- Foil: To his twin brother Weather Report. While Pucci lived a life of comfort and luxury with his family, Weather lived a rather modest lifestyle with his adopted mother. Pucci's appearance resembles more of a holy man given his occupation as a priest, while Weather has a more demonic appearance thanks to his horned buffalo hat. On the other hand, Weather's stand Weather Report and later Heavy Weather has divine and angelic appearances and abilities, whereas Pucci's Whitesnake and his later stands are more demonic in those aspects.
- Foreshadowing: A meta-example, his final stand is a centaurian being resembling a jockey, and the next part of the series involves jockies running a race.
- His final ability, accelerating the flow of time, is deliberately foreshadowed during the C-Moon arc, where Pucci is able to see inside Jotaro's stopped time.
- Freudian Excuse: After seeing the sheer number of coincidences, simple mistakes, and decisions that snowballed into tragedy in his back story, it's easy to see how his beliefs became easily swayed by Dio to turn towards Predestination and become a Knight Templar in his search for "Heaven".
- Fusion Dance: C-Moon is the combination of Whitesnake and the Green Baby.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: He's a priest who succeeds in killing the whole cast save Emporio, and while not succeeding in remaking the universe in his image, regardless is singlehandedly responsible for retconning the JoJo continuity.
- Gravity Screw: The effect of C-Moon, which can both alter gravity so that everything falls away from Pucci and use gravity to completely invert anything it touches. Made in Heaven amplifies this to the point of affecting space-time, allowing Pucci to reset the universe.
- Handicapped Badass: Tries to invoke it by using Eye Scream on himself to remove his weakness to Heavy Weather, but Anasui turns it against him with a vengeance.
- The Heavy: Unlike villain predecesors like DIO, Kira or Diavolo, Pucci has no issue with openly operating since extremely early into the series with Whitesnake showing up as early as in the second arc of the part. In turn, main antagonists of parts 3 through 5 don't really make a move until halfways or even later on.
- Heroic Second Wind: A rare villain version. He manages to more or less stand his ground in the first portion of the fight in Cape Cañaveral agaisnt Jolyne, Anasui and Emporio, but once Hermes and Jotaro arrive he's completely cornered and rapidly getting more and more injured. Then, he figures out how to get Made in Heaven, and the completion of the ritual fully heals him, allowing him to immediately take the upper hand against the heroes.
- Hero Killer: The biggest one in the series. Near the end, he kills the entire cast except for Emporio. The deaths stick, too, more or less.
- Hidden Depths: While Pucci is shown to be extremely reserved, affable and even withdrawn at times, his stand Whitesnake which he uses as a mouthpiece is, in contrast, foul-mouthed and scornful. It is notable that when Pucci starts acting more confident and violent, Whitesnake had by then ceased to exist having evolved into the more robotic C-Moon. Apparently, Pucci and Whitesnake's personalities had now become one and the same.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Thrice: Once when attempting an Eye Scream to not see Weather Report's power, which almost led to his death, then his accidental insertion of Weather Report's Stand Disc into Emporio gave the latter the power to kill him. The last one is when his own time acceleration powers end up accelerating the effects of Weather Report's powers on him.
- Honor Before Reason: His oath as a priest to not divulge what a person says during confession, not to mention his unwillingness to hurt his sister's feelings. Had he told his sister Perla the truth about Weather being their brother instead of trying to break them up by proxy, the tragedies that befell them could have been avoided.
- Ironic Echo:
- The way Pucci manages to kill Jotaro during the final fight. Just like Dio, Pucci doesn't hesitate to play dirty when he has to.
- How he is killed off by Emporio, using his own Disc against him.
- Irony: His attempts to avenge DIO by killing the Joestars and creating a world where everyone is aware of their fate results in the creation of a universe where he doesn't even exist.
- Knight Templar: To quote Weather Report on Pucci, "The kind of evil that doesn't realize that it's evil...is the worst kind there is."
- It's Personal: Pucci's final defeat comes off this way. He is bested not by Jolyne (with whom he didn't really have any personnal beef) but by Emporio, a kid whose mother he murdered, using the stand of Weather Report, his brother whose life he ruined.
- Light Is Not Good: A Knight Templar Sinister Minister with a divine-looking stand that warps reality.
- Logical Weakness: As he is speeding up using Made in Heaven, he is also extra vulnerable to effects that could make him sick or poison him, as their effects are accelerated as well. Emporio beats him at the very end by abusing this fact: by overloading the atmosphere with oxygen, it turns toxic. Pucci tries to accelerate to escape, but all this does is make the poisoning work near-instantly and totally incapacitate him. Emporio was also suffering from the oxygen poisoning, but the effect on him was much weaker and worked at a normal speed, so he remained functional for long enough to win, while Pucci dropped and became unable to walk and move right away. This is further worsened by the fact that the final encounter between Pucci and Emporio takes place in the laters Stand, a secluded room, which concentrates the oxygen.
- Manipulative Bastard: Manipulates almost all the antagonists in the saga to do his dirty work.
- Master of Illusion: Whitesnake can create a mist that either puts people into a dream-like state so he can either slowly dissolve them or use it to disguise himself.
- Mundane Utility: At one point, he uses Whitesnake to put an ordinary music Disc in Guccio, turning the latter into a human loudspeaker.
- Natural End of Time: The crux of his plan is to speed up time to this point to cycle back to the beginning of the universe, too fast for souls to die and allow them to know their fate.
- Near-Villain Victory: He succeeds in killing all the heroes (including Jotaro and Jolyne) save Emporio. But his plan banked on speeding up time so that the Joestar bloodline wouldn't follow. Emporio (and by an extent, Weather Report) manages to kill him before the latter comes to fruition, resulting in the Joestars surviving in the new timeline.
- Nice Guy: A notable contrast to other Jo Jo villains is that Pucci's kindly priest act isn't really an act- he really is that accepting and considerate. He talks nicely to everyone, had a genuine Villainous Friendship with Dio, and only commits the evil acts in the story because he's been Driven to Villainy. After he absorbs the Green Baby, he begins to lose this trait and becomes more of a Jerkass as the power starts going to his head.
- No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Pucci wanted to stop accidental incest from happening, though the method he chose was less than morally righteous. The result is that his sister killed herself, his brother turned into a remorseless killer, and sends the two of them on a collision course that would inevitably end up with either one of them dead.
- Obliviously Evil: Weather Report says this is what makes Pucci the worst kind of evil there is as he genuinely doesn't think what he is doing is wrong so long as he can reach Heaven.
- Older Than They Look: Similarly to Jotaro, Pucci appears to have aged very little since his tutelage under Dio twenty-three years before. Keep in mind that he's pushing 40 at the time of the story.
- Only Friend: Possibly this to Dio after Jonathan's death, as he's the only subordinate that Dio ever treated as an equal.
- Orwellian Retcon: His third and final Stand, named Stairway to Heaven while the manga was running in Jump, was renamed Made in Heaven when the chapters were compiled into trade paperbacks. This is popularly believed to be because the latter's song lyrics fit Pucci's motivations better.
- Our Centaurs Are Different: Made in Heaven has a humanoid upper torso, but with a horse head at the area where the equine lower half meets and lacks an additional two legs to be a true centaur. Essentially, it looks like a satyr with a horse head sticking out of its crotch.
- Personality Powers: Whitesnake's ability comes from Pucci's desire to preserve the memories of his dead sister.
- Poor Communication Kills: Broken heart or no, if he'd just told Perla and Weather that they were siblings things could have been VERY different.
- Powers as Programs: Whitesnake can extract Stands and memories as disc-like objects. These can be placed in other people to give them those powers and memories.
- Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Grows a ponytail after absorbing Green Baby.
- Purple Is the New Black: His robe is said to be black but as with most designs with black in comics, it appears Purple.
- Some Catholic priest robes are purple so it is possible that his robe actually is purple.
- Ret-Gone: Made in Heaven would have done this to his victims from Weather Report onwards. That would be including Jotaro, Jolyne, Ermes, and Anasui. After Emporio kills him, though, the resulting reality can be interpreted as that plot failing to the point that Pucci has been hit with Ret-Gone.
- Revenge Myopia: Pucci wants to avenge the death of DIO... a perverse, psychopathic vampire who was devoid of compassion and wanted to reshape the universe in his image.
- Sadistic Choice: His favorite means of escape, it seems, is to point out that someone else is about to die when he's cornered — so will you waste time killing Pucci, or save your friend? For a specific example, Pucci puts Jotaro before a nasty one: saving Jolyne from a Flechette Storm or killing Pucci. Jotaro tries to take both options, but ultimately fails and is killed by Pucci.
- Scary Black Man: Scary Italian, African American Catholic Priest anyway, especially when he gets the Ret-Gone ability. Those freak eyebrows don't help matters...
- He might have been designed to be Sicilian, they being dark-skinned and sometimes of African descent.
- Sinister Minister: Sinister priest, anyway. Of course, it's not going to be easy convincing him that following Dio's scheme is not God's will in any shape or form...
- Speed Blitz: Once he successfully achieves the ultimate form of his stand, Made in Heaven, this is his main way of fighting. It allows him to accelerate time for everything but living beings, himself excluded. This results in Pucci rapidly ramping up from agile to blindingly fast to relativistic speeds to universe cracking velocity in a few moments, while all of the heroes have to use a combination of bullet riding, water stalling and actual time stop just to keep up with him... Which is sadly nowhere near enough and he butchers them all, with Emporio alone surviving.
- Spell My Name with an "S": For the overseas release of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle, Made in Heaven was renamed to the phonetically identical "Maiden Heaven", a possible Stealth Pun to Iron Maiden.
- His surname is also spelled "Pucchi" in All Star Battle and Eyes of Heaven.
- Stealth Pun: He's a priest who's dedicated his whole life to fulfilling Dio's* prophecy for Judgement Day.
- Story-Breaker Power: Made in Heaven lets Pucci gradually speed up time to the point of entire days passing in seconds for other characters while Pucci sees everything as happening in normal time, effectively giving him escalating super speed. At his peak, he essentially has The World's time-stop ability on constantly (while Jotaro's World powers are virtually useless against him by this point). He's fast enough that he kills Anasui, Jotaro, Ermes, and Jolyne easily. A combination of arrogance and Emporio abusing his Logical Weakness in a especific location is really the only reason he loses.
- Support Party Member: What Whitesnake is supposed to be. However, with DIO being long dead, Pucci has to take centerstage himself. This is a significant issue for him because indeed, Whitesnake repertoire of abilities are support based, incluiding enemy handicaping, memory conservation, stand transfer, improved range and ilusions. Its absolutely no match for powerful close range stands like Stone Free, Weather Report or Diver Down, so Pucci has to resort to trickery and creative use of Whitesnake's support skillset to get by.
- Throwing Off the Disability: He was born with a club foot and used to walk with a noticeable limp. Dio's sudden and miraculous cure of his condition is what initially drew Pucci to him.
- Trauma Conga Line: His Start of Darkness is due to a series of one tragic circumstance to the next. Firstly, he grew up his entire life believing that his brother died in childbirth, only to discover that he was alive the whole time. Then, he finds out that his beloved sister is unknowingly in a relationship with said long-lost brother. Then, his own actions in trying to break off their relationship ends up driving his sister into despair and suicide while he helplessly watches. The guy has a lot of baggage.
- Underestimating Badassery: Pucci captured Jolyne merely to use her as bait in order to get Jotaro into Green Dolphin prison and steal his discs. Afterwards he paid no mind to Jolyne at first since he assumed that she was just a spoilt brat pining for her boyfriend and therefore was no real threat. As Pucci soon learned however he was very, very wrong.
- Undying Loyalty: To Dio, notably in comparison to the other agents, it's closer to that of friendship than the fanaticism of the other followers.
- Unskilled, but Strong:
- Whitesnake is a physically powerful stand, with enough raw strength to impale a human being with its fist. However, it isn't as efficient in hand-to-hand combat against stands like Stone Free.
- C-Moon is probably one of the most destructive stands with its gravitational powers and massive range, alongside its deadly ability to turn objects it touches inside out. However, C-Moon lacks any development potential and in contrast to Whitesnake who can act independently, relies on direct commands from Pucci, such as to avoid targeting Jolyene's vitals twice.
- Unusual Eyebrows: They kind of...make these little lines that go up then join into the rest of his hair after a 90-degree turn. They become even more complicated after he merged with the Green Baby.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Flashbacks during his child and young adulthood show that he actually was a genuinely nice boy who loved his family and wanted to become a priest for benign reasons. A series of tragic circumstances ending in his little sister's suicide led him to believe that all of life is predetermined and that only by going to heaven can man possible overcome their fate which led him to Dio.
- Utopia Justifies the Means: His ultimate plan is to accelerate time to the point where it loops back through a singularity — without the Joestar bloodline following — so everyone is subconsciously aware of what will happen in the entire future. End result: shock and horror are utterly erased, along with anything else related to surprise.
- Villainous Breakdown: At his defeat when he realizes he'll be killed before the New Moon, meaning all he's done will be for naught. Even moreso when it's not a Joestar but one of their allies, a young kid at that, and the stand that belong to his brother that does him in.
- Villainous Friendship: Type 1, since Dio actually trusts Pucci far more as an equal than any of his subordinates, not to mention the lengths Pucci goes to in order to fulfill his posthumous friend's ambitions.
- Villain Protagonist: Stone Ocean is as much as about Jolyne as it is about Pucci. He recieves more screentime than any other villain in the series, several chapters are entirely from his point of view and his personal story and character development are given significant focus.
- Villainous Underdog: Whitesnake is a powerful Stand, but its abilities pale in comparison to those possessed by the protagonists. Pucci spends several fights just trying to survive and advance his schemes, but while he does eventually attain incredible might he still loses to his brother's Stand.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Pucci never views himself as evil, but rather as God's messenger to bring Heaven on Earth. However, his vision of Heaven, is a world where everybody knows their fate completely from birth, allowing people in his perspective to never feel the pain of sudden tragedy or surprise. And he won't stop at anything to attain this dream even if it means murder.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Has white hair, is a loyal servant of Dio, and is very evil.
- Worthy Opponent: Considers Jolyne to be one, growing gradually more freaked out at her inability to die. Early on, he states that using her to get to Jotaro was a bad idea, as Jolyne's combination of single-mindedness and tactical brilliance made her a greater threat than Jotaro and that he kind of shot himself in the foot severely by trying to use her as bait.
- Your Head A-Splode: His ultimate fate at the hands of Emporio, who uses Weather Report to punch his head until it's completely crushed, complete with Pucci's eyeball flying out.
Gwess (Stand: Goo Goo Dolls)
Jolyne's cellmate. Somewhat off-kilter.
The Stand arrow grants her Goo Goo Dolls, which allows her to shrink anyone.
- Borrowed Catchphrase: Likes to say "Such a good child!" in the same manner as Alessi. She also uses Cioccolata's "Good! Good good good good..."
- Call-Back: Much like Tamami Kobayashi from Diamond is Unbreakable, at first Gwess appears friendly towards Jolyne but in actuality, she is manipulating Jolyne with her Stand power like how Kobayashi used The Lock on Koichi's parents to get information out of him. Also like Kobayashi, Gwess swears servitude towards Jolyne following her defeat.
- 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.
- Living Doll Collector: And dresses them up in dead animal skins to keep as pets.
- Personality Powers: Goo Goo Dolls' ability to shrink is explained as a manifestation of her desire to make friends but have power over them.
- Pokémon Speak: Goo Goo Dolls constantly says "goo, goo".
- 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".
Johngalli A (Stand: Manhattan Transfer)
His Stand, Manhattan Transfer, reads air movements and helps guide his bullets, making him an extremely effective sniper despite his blindness.
- Avenging the Villain: Aiming to take revenge on the Joestar family for Dio's death, he participates in the plan to frame Jolyne Cujoh and works towards killing her and Jotaro Kujo inside prison.
- Cold Sniper: Justified, he is an ex-soldier.
- Handicapped Badass: Well, he is blind but also an adept sniper. He disguises his rifle as a cane which he keeps on his person.
- He Knows Too Much: Because he knows Pucci's face, his stand Whitesnake shoots him in the head (before planting the gun on his body, so that others would deem the event a suicide).
- 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.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Originally "Jongalli A".
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of N'Doul, a blind man that is totally loyal to DIO. He even hides his sniper rifle in a cane that looks nearly identical to N'Doul.
Thunder McQueen (Stand: Highway to Hell)
His Stand, Highway to Hell, will reflect any damage to himself onto anyone nearby if he attempts suicide.
- Anti-Villain: He does not seem like a bad guy, but just a pawn of Pucci who took advantage of his suicidal tendencies.
- The Atoner: He is quite self-centered, believing himself to be rejected by society and feeling a need to be this via constant suicide attempts.
- Born Unlucky: If his story is true...he is in prison for having shot a woman, which he claims was a freak accident when he picked up a gun to clean it and it went off at the same moment the woman fell past his window while attempting suicide by jumping from the 11th floor of his building.
- Death Seeker: McQueen is suicidal, suffering from a personality disorder resulting from crippling depression. But see below...
- 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.
- Personality Powers: Invoked in-universe. Recognizing how utterly pathetic and despicable he was, Pucci granted him Highway to Hell hoping he'd kill himself and someone else.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His original fan-translated name was "Xander McQueen", but "Thunder" is what shows up in official translations.
- Synchronization: Highway to Hell inflicts his own self-injury onto a target as well as on himself.
- Taking You with Me: His Stand's modus operandi. Thunder's suicidal, but he also feels compelled to drag someone with him so his suffering will be shared. His Stand's power? Reflect every injury he performs on himself onto a target. Even the lethal ones.
Miraschon (Stand: Marilyn Manson)
Her Stand is Marilyn Manson, which will forcibly claim payment on a bet.
- Anime Hair: Her front hair is basically a ring around her face with bars in it.
- Borrowed Catchphrase: Shares the D'arby brothers' "GOOD!".
- 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.
- Lost Him in a Card Game: Much nastier than with the D'Arby brothers. Basically, if you lose or forfeit (through cheating) a bet that Marilyn Manson is overseeing, it will instantly take away from you the value that you bet. If you don't have the money with you? It just starts taking things equivalent in value - ultimately including internal organs based on their going price on the black market.
- Personality Powers: Invoked in-universe in the exact same manner as Thunder McQueen. Upon realizing that she's ballsy enough to steal a jewelled crucifix during her parole hearing, Pucci decides that she's perfectly compatible with Marilyn Manson.
- Red Baron: Marilyn Manson is one of the few Stands to hold a badass title, in this case "Debt Collector".
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Mirashon".
- The Stoic: After Pucci gives her Marilyn Manson until near the end of her fight.
Lang Rangler (Stand: Jumpin' Jack Flash)
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.
- 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.
- Gravity Screw: Jumpin' Jack Flash causes gravity to not apply to anything and anyone it affects.
- Required Secondary Powers: Acquiring Jumpin' Jack Flash also caused his fingertips and toes to grow suction cups so he could cling to walls in zero gravity.
- 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.
Sports Maxx (Stand: Limp Bizkit)
The gangster who killed Ermes' sister.
His Stand is Limp Bizkit, which can revive the dead as invisible zombies.
- Dub Name Change: Possibly the most ludicrous instance in the series, as in Eyes of Heaven his Stand is rechristened as Flaccid Pancake.
- My Death Is Just the Beginning: Ermes succeeds in killing him, but he comes back as a ghost thanks to his Stand and tries to take revenge on her.
- The Necromancer: Limp Bizkit raises the dead as invisible zombies.
- Our Ghosts Are Different: His Stand allows him to bring back people as invisible, inaudible zombies, including, when he dies, himself.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Sports Max" rather than "Maxx".
- Taxidermy Is Creepy: A hobby he picked up in prison that rather unsubtly foreshadows his new power.
- Token Motivational Nemesis: Subverted, in fact. He seems pretty straight as an example for Ermes, the reason she entered the prison in the first place and killed by her shortly after he's introduced, but his stand's ability was really important to Pucci's ultimate goal.
- 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.
Viviano Westwood (Stand: Planet Waves)
His stand, Planet Waves, summons meteors toward his location.
- Blood Knight: Survivor makes him into a rather impressive one.
- Death from Above: Planet Waves can summon meteoroids from outer space toward Westwood, which will harm an opponent if he can put them between himself and the meteoroid. Unfortunately, as Jolyne found out, it's impossible to try the same tactic on him, since they will simply disintegrate before they hit him.
- Drunk with Power: He enjoys abusing the inmates.
- The Guards Must Be Crazy: Viviano, it's really not a good idea to release all the maximum security prisoners from their cells just because you want to fight them to death. Justified due to Survivor's effects making him an Ax-Crazy Blood Knight.
- Orwellian Retcon: His Stand was originally named "Earth Wind and Fire", which Araki forgot he used as the name of the Stand(?) of Mikitaka Hazekura in Diamond is Unbreakable (he spelled the two differently, though). This forced the change to "Planet Waves" once the paperback volume was released.
- Police Brutality: Thanks to Survivor's effects. Although there were signs he had a sadistic streak from the start.
- Star Power: A meteor summoner.
- 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 begin 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.
Kenzo (Stand: Dragon's Dream)
An expert practitioner of kenpo kept in solitary confinement. His specialty is manipulating people's bodies with his martial arts so they will die of drowning.
His Stand, Dragon's Dream, tells him the best angle of attack based on a martial art known as "fengshui assassination".
- Beware the Silly Ones: He's quite the oddball, and there's multiple gags where his stand actively helps his opponents as much as him, but he's still able to come closer than most to winning.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: His Stand is the embodiment of his skill in fengshui assassination and naturally developed after 40 years of martial arts training.
- Cult: He used to lead one, complete with celebrity spokespeople.
- Empowered Badass Normal: He was an extremely skilled martial artist long before gaining a Stand.
- Evil Old Folks: A wicked old man who used to run a suicide cult, manipulating over 30 people into burning themselves alive.
- Fantastic Fighting Style: Fengshui assassination mixed with Kenpo.
- Faux Affably Evil: He acts friendly and courteous when he's first introduced. He's not.
- Near-Villain Victory: Seriously wounded F.F and almost killed Jolyne if Anasui hadn't intervened at the last second.
- Old Master: He's over 70 years old, but he's more than capable of killing countless inmates, and giving F.F an incredibly tough fight.
- Religion of Evil: He used to run a cult, which drew many celebrities. Turns out that Kenzo was secretly manipulating them into killing themselves For the Evulz.
- Touch of Death: His favorite trick is "drowning his opponent on land", where he jams a Pressure Point in his opponent's mouth at the 4th cervical spine, and causes the adrenal gland in their kidneys to go into overload while simultaneously expelling most of the oxygen from their lungs so they drown in their own backed up bodily fluids. Somehow.
- 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 Kenzo'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 it is the will of Feng Shi so...
D an G (Stand: Yo-Yo-Ma)
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.
- Bodyguard Betrayal: Yo-Yo-Ma uses this as its modus operandi. It all but falls over itself to help you out of pickles, but it's really trying to make you lower your guard so it can find a way to get the anti-human-flesh enzyme it exudes on you.
- Dirty Cop: Before he was arrested, anyway.
- For the Evulz: Once he became convinced that Nostradamus really had foretold the world's end in 1999, he exchanged his dutiful police officer personality for one of "homicidal maniac". Why bother with holding your impulses in if even the universe isn't going to live long enough to punish you?
- Healing Factor: His stand was shot in the face several times, punched through the head, had his skull cracked open and sliced open (both times with large portions of the brain being destroyed) - and all of that was regenerated in seconds.
- Implacable Man: Once his stand is summoned to kill you, it won't quit, until you are dead - it isn't invulnerable, but it can survive pretty much anything, regenerates from grievous injuries in a matter of seconds, and isn't fazed by pain, because it likes being in pain. In the end Anasui had to rewire its brain to stop it, and even after that it still tried to kill them until his user died.Yo-Yo Ma: Do you still not understand? It doesn't matter if you destroy parts of my body, there is no way you can destroy me or stop me. You cannot destroy my target radar or prevent me from attacking Jolyne Kujo... The only way, you two could have survived... Is if you run away.
- 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.
- 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 spend the majority of the fight between his Stand and the heroes unconscious.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "D&G" after namesake Dolce & Gabanna.
Guccio (Stand: Survivor)
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's named after the clothing line Gucci.
- Blessed With Suck: Aside from how unhelpful his Stand is, it's also actively detrimental to him because he can't control its effects. It's stated that the prior user of Survivor had to basically live as a hermit because when he tried to live in society, people around him tended to be affected by Survivor accidentally, causing fights to the death to break out for no reason.
- Blood Knight: Survivor turns its targets into this, convincing them of "the beauty of fighting".
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: Once Anasui realized not only that Guccio was an agent of Pucci, but that another such agent — specifically, D an G — was nearby, he arranged for Diver Down to activate its power. On Guccio's ribs. In such a way that D an G's own arm was horrifically mangled.
- Gonk: Just look at his face.
- Let's You and Him Fight: Survivor incites this.
- Personality Powers: It's not made explicit whether Pucci invoked this trope like he did with Miraschon and McQueen, but even while he was a Muggle, fights tended to break out around him.
- The Power of Hate: As noted by Dio, Survivor can't physically attack people and it can't influence their minds in anyway. Its only real power is to make people angry and want to fight with one another.
- Shock and Awe: Survivor sends minuscule electric shocks into a persons brain, sending them into a rage.
- This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: His chapter is where it becomes clear why Pucci has so many weird Stands at his disposal; he packed away anything, just in case, because even the weakest Stand of all should have some time where it's useful.
- The Unfought: Once the protagonists actually end up face-to-face with Guccio, he doesn't even try to fight; he instead tries to convince them that he is a completely innocent prisoner trapped in the middle of stand battle shenanigans. Anasui sees right through him and uses Guccio as a human weapon against D an G via some Body Horror. Although it's slightly justified since Survivor can't actually physically attack people.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: While many Stand powers might look useless at first, their users' ingenuity tends to put that idea to rest. However, as far as Dio was concerned, Survivor just wasn't good for any active purpose, since its effect was uncontrollable and not easily manipulable — make people fight each other if they have animosity, relay their weak points to each other... that's it. It doesn't help you win a fight, because it makes your opponent stronger, and it can't be used to strengthen allies because it makes them so violent that they're a threat to you. Now compare that with weak-in-the-description/DEVASTATING-in-practice Stands like Sticky Fingers and Bohemian Rhapsody...
The Green Baby (Stand: Green, Green Grass of Home)
It has a stand, Green, Green Grass of Home, (named after a Porter Wagoner song) which weaponizes Zeno's dichotomy paradox by continuously shrinking anything that approaches the Green Baby down to infinitesimally nothing.
- Cloning Blues: It's made from one of Dio's bones, which took a life of its own.
- Fun Size: While it doesn't seem to be actively malicious, it doesn't like it when someone approaches them. That's where the Stand comes in; its influence causes those who approach it (and don't know the passwords like Pucci does) to reduce to half their size once they close half the distance between themselves and it. And this happens again...and again...and again...
- Fusion Dance: After Sports Maxx animated the bone's spirit, it proceeded to absorb the spirits of those who died in the brawl Survivor incited. 34 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 fused with Whitesnake, creating C-Moon.
- Humanoid Abomination: Not an openly violent one, but it is a green skinned humanoid that can shrink whatever chases it except ones who know the Magical Incantation.
- Magical Incantation: Not quite magic, but a series of secret words Pucci needs to say to the Green Baby as part of Dio's plan.Pucci: "Spiral Staircase! Rhinoceros Beetle! A Ghost Town! A Pear Tart! Rhinoceros Beetle! Via Dolorosa! Rhinoceros Beetle! Singularity Point! Giotto! Angels! Hydrangea! Rhinoceros Beetle! Singularity Point! The Secret Emperor!"
Miuccia "Miumiu" Miuller (Stand: Jail House Lock)
At first, Miumiu looks like another female inmate. She's actually the prison's head of security.
Her Stand, Jail House Lock, renders its targets unable to remember more than three things at a time.
She's 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".
- Four Is Death: Since Jail House Lock's victims can only remember three recent things at a time, her most reliable way for dispatching them is to shoot four bullets at a time at them. This way, even if they notice how the first three bullets are flying and come up with a way to avoid them, they'll completely forget about the first bullet when the fourth bullet shows up. Jolyne gets around this by concentrating on a puddle of water under the bullets' flight path, letting her register them not as separate projectiles, but a single pattern.
- Hidden in Plain Sight: Sometimes she dresses herself as a prisoner in order to taunt her victims, since they wouldn't remember her anyways.
- I Shall Taunt You: Since Miumiu's Stand causes her victims to only remember three things at a time she will often get close to one of her targets and exploit this ability to confuse or humiliate them in some way. 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.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Your short-term memory pretty much ceases to exist once Jail House Lock gets its hands on you.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The song is named "Jail House Rock", but her arc in the manga is named "Jail House Lock" (in English), so most fans use the latter. It makes more sense with the nature her ability, which acts as a non-physical lock to keep the stand-using inmates quiet.
Ungalo (Stand: Bohemian Rhapsody)
His Stand, Bohemian Rhapsody, evokes stories right onto people who like them. This is worse than it sounds...much worse. He is named after Emanuel Ungaro, and his stand is named after the Queen song "Bohemian Rhapsody".
- Bastard Bastard: He's inhereted his father's worst traits. Specifically, sadism and a hatred for the world.
- Despair Event Horizon: After Weather Report manages to use Bohemian Rhapsody's Reality Warping powers to negate itself Ungalo was overcome with despair at the thought of regressing back into the drug-addled life he had before and in the end lost the will to live and fell into a vegetative state.
- Dhampyr: In the same vein as the rest of DIO's sons, he's technically this, but has no vampiric traits.
- 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.
- But his hedonistic lifestyle as a junkie and a slob serves more of a dead-ringer for his alcoholic grandfather, Dario Brando.
- Gonk: Add in the fact that he's a paradigm junkie, and you can guess how low his Pleasantness Quotient is...
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Weather defeats Bohemian Rhapsody by telling a story of a superhero-like being who rounds up wayward story characters (i.e. the entities created and/or transformed by the Stand) and forces them back into their stories of origin. Ungalo's horror and disbelief at Bohemian Rhapsody being made to negate itself makes him regress into a vegetative state. (We should be thankful that he didn't think to just reactivate his Stand... Then again, given that Weather could just tell his story again...)
- Implacable Man: The creations can't be destroyed by any means. If hit, they'll only fold like paper and reform back into place as Anasui found out with the Mother Goat, and won't stop till the roles of the book come to the fruition.
- Never My Fault: Ultimately, he's shown to be a man who doesn't look after himself, refuses to address his weaknesses and blames the rest of the world for his failings.
- Public Domain Character: What most of the characters that come out from their books are from. This was necessary as there was no way in hell Araki was going to get anyone copyrighted to appear. note
- Reality Warper: Pretty much his stand's power. It turns its victims into the character they identify with most from their favorite story and follows that character's story to the letter. One can run from it but it's pretty much an inevitability as the story will catch up to you regardless. For example, Anasui identifies with the wolf in the fairy tale, The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids to which at the end of that story the wolf was cut up to free the goat children he ate, stuffed with rocks and drowned in a river by the Mother Goat. Anasui tried putting distance and barriers to keep the Mother Goat from chasing him but the walls/doors peeled away like a storybook page allowing the goat to continue her pursuit. Even if it's something like a moving vehicle, it didn't help for when Anasui tried to open the car door he grappled onto, it only acted as a portal for the Mother Goat to jump through to attack him.
- Shout-Out: Creates these in droves. Given what his Stand ability does, this should come as no surprise. Even if we don't see the majority of the characters.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Ungaro" after Emanuel Ungaro.
- The Unfought: He never actually meets the heroes; he only interacts with Pucci, who helps make him aware of his Stand. He spends all of his post-hospital screen time on board an airplane, glutting himself on fine food and drink while Bohemian Rhapsody's creations run roughshod over the world.
- Unskilled, but Strong: His Stand is among the most powerful in the entire franchise. Being able to make fictional characters real, much less characters that can be created by anyone, much less on a worldwide basis, much less their Implacable Man and You Can't Fight Fate traits, is so brokenly versatile that any smart wielder of it could be ruling the world in about a week. But Ungalo is a dimwitted and lazy druggie, so he just lets it run wild without a care, leading to him being Hoist by His Own Petard.
- Weaksauce Weakness: For all his worldwide spread reality warping might, his stand is defeated by a strategy that resembles what a children would come up with in the playground.
- 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 whom 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)
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".
- Anti-Villain: Easily the most sympathetic of the three sons of Dio that help out Pucci, he only does so out of gratitude to Pucci for helping him out with realizing his Stand ability, not out of Power High, but because it made him a Cosmic Plaything.
- He's also a Graceful Loser who reveals information because they managed to beat him.
- Artistic License Biology: Let us count the ways!
- 1. Rods don't actually exist, and are simply photo/video artifacts of capturing insects flying in frame faster than the camera's shutterspeed
- 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 World of Carboard Speech, and he isn't even one of the main characters!I overcame my own heart! I'll never panic again... I'm going to reclaim my life, with my own hands! I'm Apollo 11!
- Bastard Bastard: Though he's more sympathetic than the other two.
- The Beastmaster: With the cryptids called "rods."
- Because You Were Nice to Me: Helps Pucci out of gratitude for helping him realize his stand ability.
- Callback: 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.
- Cosmic Plaything: He certainly felt like this, at least until Pucci revealed why things kept falling flat for him. It was actually his semi-dormant Stand constantly attracting heat-sucking rods to him.
- Determinator: When confronted with Jolyne, who set herself on fire, he does the same to gain an advantage, and when he is landed with a mortal blow, he decides to dull his pain receptors to do a Taking You with Me on her.
- Dhampyr: In the same vein as the rest of DIO's sons, he's technically this, but has no vampiric traits.
- Generation Xerox: While Giorno may have the charisma and good perception and Donatello may have inherited 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 trait of Dio — that is, the ability to acknowledge a Worthy Opponent, as he tells Jolyne out of respect for her skills.
- 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.
- 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.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Rykiel" after Sonia Rykiel.
- Weirdness Magnet: It attracted rods in his case, which led to being a Cosmic Plaything.
- Worthy Opponent: Considers Jolyne this for beating him, so he tells her out of gratitude
Donatello Versus (Stand: Under World)
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. He uses this ability to trick Jolyne and Ermes into entering the memory of a plane crash from 2005 and to retrieve Weather Report's memory disc from a memory of Pucci. He is named after Donatella Versace and the fashion brand Versus, and his stand is named after the electronic music band Underworld.
- 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.
- Continuity Nod: Given all the parallels that exist between him and his father, giving Versus the stand Underworld seems to have been a very deliberate choice.
- Dhampyr: In the same vein as the rest of DIO's sons, he's technically this, but has no vampiric traits.
- Generation Xerox: Of the four children, including Giorno, he's the most similar to Dio in personality, having the same background with an abusive father, as well as the It's All About Me attitude. He even does a Kick the Dog moment in the hopes of causing the heroes to undergo the Despair Event Horizon, only to awaken The Hero's Berserk Button.
- Improbable Weapon User: At one point, he uses the "memory" of the Miami Dolphins to attack the heroes.
- It's All About Me: With an In the Blood/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.
- 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—Versus 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 Versus, who is quickly arrested for theft. When Versus 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 Versus and Stanley in this respect is that Versus' prison is much worse.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Many originally thought his name was "Versace" like the fashion designer Donatella Versace, even though his surname was pronounced "Versus", but it turns out he's actually named after the Versace fashion line Versus.
- The Starscream: As far as Versus' 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.
- 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 Versus has in mind for you that the memory won't interdict.
The mother of Jolyne, and Jotaros 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: Doesnt seem to that much older than Jolyne.
- Anime Hair: Her hair curves to the side.
- Averted in a flashback where she has normal long hair
- Doting Parent: Implied. Her and Jolynes dialogue suggests that she deeply cares for Jolyne but isnt strict enough hence why Jolyne repeatedly gets into trouble with the law.
- Outliving One's Offspring: Most likely lived through Made in Heavens destruction and recreation of universe, unlike Jolyne.
- Posthumous Character: In Jolyne, Fly High with GUCCI, subverted in that its actually a dream.
- Unnamed Parent: She's never referred to by name.
Jolyne's boyfriend at the beginning of the story. Framed her for a hit and run.

- BrotherSister Incest: She doesn't live to find out about it, though.
- Driven to Suicide: Kills herself after seeing Weather supposedly die.
- Morality Chain: To both Weather and Pucci. It was her death that ultimately drove both of them over the edge and towards their Start of Darkness.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Her death indirectly caused Pucci to become Dio's disciple, and therefore the plot of the part.
- Posthumous Character: Dead long before the story's start.
