"Stand users never reveal their abilities! Even though we may be allies, to reveal your ability is to reveal your weakness!"

"Your Stand is like your asshole. You can't go around showing it off to other people."
Norisuke Higashikata IV, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: JoJolion

Stockman: That ploy might have worked against a lesser mechanoid, but as always, I'm one step ahead in my design work. In addition to the central power nodules, each component in my cyborg armor has its own internal backup power source! Hah!

Of course if you want to tell me about your abilities, I’m all ears.

How well does it match the trope?
