  • Anything, linked to the Antonio Torres' skin zombies.
    "If he's kept that power as a skin zombie, and is still growing new skin, then every year, on June 16th, skinning day, Antonio Torres is making copies of himself. The Torres case on La Palma happened in 1900. Fifteen years have passed, fourteen skinning days, and Antonio's copies have all made copies, doubling each time, so 2 to the 14th power, leaving us with 16,384 asshole Antonios. More than enough to terrorize the 800 pilots the Naval Air Service has spread across the channel and the North Sea, wouldn't you say?"
    • There's also a quote from Lisa Lisa, which perfectly describes, what kind of horror the skin zombies can be:
    "If the zombies brought those bodies to life, and those new zombies attacked the living, creating even more zombies, then the zombie empire would expand explosively, far faster than any pyramid scheme."
  • Childhood of Antonio Torres (Anthony Hightower) was not good either. Each year, his mother would skin him alive (slowly and piece by piece at first, with treatment of wounds in-between, in order for him to survive) to make "This year's Antonio" - a twisted and grotesque work of art, which is, basically, a hide from the skin of her own son. It was so bad, that he has developed a Wound (Stand-like power, created from trauma), which allowed him to shed all of his skin at once like a snake. And this power stayed after his death, creating the skin zombies.

  • The Mothman - a strange kind of mass hysteria (except not quite, since it, at one point, manifested itself and visited Lisa Lisa), when people would lock themselves in a room, set it and themselves on fire and then use their own blood and charred flesh for drawing the Mothman. Even being turned to zombies did nothing to stop them from covering the walls in drawings, until they've burned completely. And then there's this part...
    We reached the school grounds in a few dozen seconds, crossed the sea of cars parked outside, and reached the gym to find a few thousand people pouring gasoline on each other. They were all muttering under their breath. No one was giving directions. They glanced in our direction, but saw nothing – even though we must have appeared to be hovering in mid-air. Listening closer, I could make out what they were saying.

    "Scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared scared...."

    I shivered – instinctively, I knew I could not afford to listen to them for long. We began shouting, trying to drown out the muttering. "Stop!" "What the fuck!?" "Please, stop that!" "Don't kill yourself!" Nobody heard. It was as if they were possessed; nothing we did stopped them from preparing for suicide. Rohan was yelling, "Heaven's Door!" over and over, turning them into books, but getting nowhere. "Damn it! All of their books are filled with the word 'scared'! There's no white space left for me to write any orders! What now, detective!?"
