  • Anything, linked to the Antonio Torres' skin zombies.
    • See this image on the right? That's a result of one of them infiltrating body of Jim Graham, causing him to pull all of his internal organs out through his mouth.
    • They can quickly turn humans into new skin zombies. And those zombies can easily pass for humans and withstand sunlight.
    • Also, humans, turned into the skin zombies, retain their skills.
    • And, what's worst of all - they can reproduce not only by infecting human hosts, but also by yearly process, similar to cellular division. In mere 15 years, a single skin zombie was able to create an army of 16,384 copies.
      "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."
  • The 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!?"

  • Jouji's first attempt at using Stand disk, created by Kars... does not go well.
  • The implied fate of the alternate universe Kars, nicknamed "Light Dancer" by fans. note 
  • Original Kars is well-aware of the Beyond.
  • Kars' Mars escape ship. That vessel won't look out of place in Warhammer 40,000.
  • While not as bizarre as many of the examples listed here, Dio's psychological and physical torture of poor Erina in the aftermath of the ship explosion is terrifying. Having just attached his head to Jonathan's body, he hitches himself to the coffin Erina and Lisa Lisa are in and demands Erina's blood. Erina is forced to let him drink her blood after he threatens Lisa Lisa. He spends the next several days abusing Erina, telling her it's her fault Jonathan is dead. He also physically tortures her by repeatedly dunking her in the ocean (using The World) and almost letting her drown, all while he keeps draining her of blood. A combination of psychological torture, anemia, sunstroke, and exhaustion causes Erina to temporarily forget who she is and thinks she's nothing but Dio's plaything. Fortunately she eventually gets the upper hand, but the ordeal Erina went through is staggering.
