Hello, everyone, and after finally catching up with Jojo up until Jojolion, and with either an OVA or Vento Aureo being animated, as well as Diamond Records being released for mobile, and with the JOJO Great Festival that occurred on Sunday, I think now is a time to make at least one more Jojo related list. And what better list to make than a list of my favorite Stands in Jojo. And this time, I’m including them all, and that includes the main characters Stands, so I’m not holding back on anything. These will all be Stands from Jojo that I love and what makes them so great, as well as a short explanation of their abilities. I know you are all probably sick of me talking about Jojo, but don’t worry, this will be the last article I make about it… Until something new comes up, but for now, this will be the last one. So, for now, let’s finish this little mini-kinda-series with a top twenty of my favorite Stands. Oh, and I am going to talk about the Stands of main characters, so you better expect massive spoilers for all parts, or at least most parts.
#20: Metallica from Vento Aureo (User: Risotto Nero)
Okay, so starting off strong, we have my favorite enemy Stand of Vento Aureo. Named after the American heavy metal band of the same name that sold out harder than Soul’d Out, the Stand manages to have probably one of the bloodiest and most brutal fights in… probably all of Jojo. Risotto Nero was the leader and the least remaining member of the assassination group that Giorno and the others had to deal with, as they had planned to capture Trish Una in order to find the identity of her father, the Boss of Passione. Risotto decides to, instead of go after Giorno and his friends, go after Doppio, who he suspects as an underling to the Boss. He’s a very calm and serious individual, never losing his temper most of the time and always managing to stay levelheaded. So, instead of a fight between the hero and an antagonist, we get a fight between two antagonists, something we wouldn’t get to see much of again until Steel Ball Run. It makes for a really tense fight, and the Stand, Metallica, really adds to that feeling. Metallica is a Stand of little cell-looking creatures, with the ability to manipulate iron of any kind, including the iron in the earth and the iron in a person’s blood. This allows him to create blades out of anything, and can even put knives in a person’s body. As shown in the fight between Risotto and Doppio, he really damages Doppio, having a pair of scissors appear in his throat and making nails burst out of his cheek. As I said, it was the most bloody fight in probably the series, and I can say that it was a damn good one at that to have. Oh, please let Vento Aureo be animated soon so we can see the censors go crazy with this fight.
#19: Nut King Call from Jojolion (User: Joshu Higashikata)
This is the only Stand from Jojolion on this list. And that’s not because Jojolion has bad Stands. I think it has lots of great Stands. It was just hard to put all twenty Stands in a way I was satisfied with. So, with that said, Nut King Call is an awesome Stand. Joshu is known by many as the worst character in Jojolion, maybe in Jojo, which is very doubtful. Remember characters like Shigechi? Well, at least Shigechi died and everyone cried. Anyway, I don’t think Joshu is that bad. His hairstyle is horrid, I mean, when some random guy comes into your life, takes the girl you have a crush on, takes the respect of your father, and most woman want his four testicles, you’d be pretty pissed too. At least Joshu has an amazing Stand to make him less of an awful character. Nut King Call is named after the African American singer, Nat King Cole. Anyway, this purple screw-filled Stand with a purple Viewtiful Joe V on it’s head has the ability to put screws on anything and, once they are removed, they will fall apart, as long as Joshu is in range of the target. Nut King Call is also able to fuse things together with screws. Sure, Joshu may be hated amongst the community, but at least his Stand manages to make up for it…. Right?
#18: Moody Blues from Vento Aureo (User: Leone Abbacchio)
We all know that the Stands with the ability to fight back in anyway possible are pretty good, but what about Stands that aren’t very battle heavy? Sure, they may not be strong, but they can still have the ability to do some amazing things. And Moody Blues is one of those Stands. Moody Blues is the Stand used by Passione member, Leone Abbacchio, who acts as a soldier who only cares for the mission at hand and nothing else, yet remains loyal to Passione and especially Bruno Bucirrati. Moody Blues is named after the English rock band, The Moody Blues. Moody Blues has the ability to repeat any past events that occurred and repeat them for Abbacchio to better understand. For example, when the group was attacked by the Stand, Soft Machine, Abbacchio used his Stand to find out where his comrades were taken in order to defeat the Stand. Moody Blues is not a Stand used for fighting, yet can repeat some moves that Abbacchio learned when watching movies, as shown in the fight with Man in the Mirror, where Moody Blues used this to curb stomp Man in the Mirror. Of course, Diavolo was also able to know of the importance of Moody Blues’ ability to repeat past events, and this is why Diavolo targeted Abbacchio first, as he could easily find out his identity that way. In the end, I guess Abbacchio was more than a man who yelled at Giorno and pissed in his tea.
#17: Black Sabbath from Vento Aureo (User: Polpo)
Yeah, you can expect a lot of Stands from Vento Aureo to appear on this list. Guess you could say it has the best Stands to make up for the lackluster villain, but that’s besides the point. Anyway, Black Sabbath had a lot to live up to, as it was the first enemy Stand of Vento Aureo. And rest assured, it managed to be even better than I thought. First off, the appearance of Black Sabbath is amazing. The robe and hat really give it a sort of ancient Italy feeling. Also being named after the English rock band of the same name really helps a lot. Black Sabbath is the Stand of Polpo, a large, obese man who tests all those who wish to join Passione with a test known as The Trial, which is part of Polpo’s Stand. The Trial is said to keep a lighter’s flame lit for twenty four hours without letting it go out, when really, The Trial is surviving Black Sabbath, as Black Sabbath carries one of the Arrows, which grants those with a strong will a Stand. Black Sabbath is also capable to travelling through any form of shadow in the area next to the target. It can’t go in sunlight, but can easily get through any shadow, weather it be from buildings, people, or from the shadows of birds overhead, it can use this to its advantage. Black Sabbath was the Stand that really showed Araki’s creativity at his peak, and showed just how he can create some original ideas, which is why I think it managed to make Vento Aureo so great- Oh wait, people in the States didn’t like it very much, whoops.
#16: Cream from Stardust Crusaders (User: Vanilla Ice)
Cream was probably the scariest Stand to appear in all of Part 3 at the time, and it comes from a man whose name is goddamn Vanilla Ice! So yeah, Cream is an awesome Stand. Just looking at this thing with it’s gaping mouth and executioner-like appearance is haunting, and the fact that it can eat the user and even itself doesn’t help much. As I said, the user of Cream is Vanilla Ice (Yes, that is his name. I am not making this shit up), who is DIO’s most loyal servant and will die for him, even decapitating himself to give him blood, but was brought back to life to serve DIO. And he proved to be a real threat, even killing two of the Stardust Crusaders, and almost killing Polnareff. Cream, being named after the British rock group, has a very haunting ability. When Cream swallows itself, it can create a sort of portal that will erase anything that it touches and will send it somewhere that even it doesn’t know where it ends up. The downside is that when this happens, Cream and Vanilla Ice cannot see what happens when in this attack, and has to stop the attack just to see what he is doing, but it still makes Cream a terrifying Stand. I mean, hell, he killed more main characters than DIO. When you kill more protagonists than the series main villain, than you know your Stand is terrifying. So yeah, Cream. An amazingly terrifying Stand (Also the pun with the user and Stand is Vanilla Ice Cream. Funny, right?)
#15: Hanged Man from Stardust Crusaders (User: J. Geil)
From the beginning of Stardust Crusaders, most of the Stands we ran into were… Okay. They had the abilities of punch things hard and fast, shoot things hard and fast, burn things… just burn things, and stab things hard and fast. And as for enemy Stands… They weren’t terrible (Except Tower of Grey. Die in a hole), but they were just abilities that we’ve seen before. The Stand users were more interesting than the Stands, and some of their designs were pretty awesome too (Except Tower of Grey. Die in a fire). But Hanged Man, the Stand of the Hanged Man Tarot Card, was the Stand that stopped dicking around and showed us the real Stands. Hanged Man is the Stand of J. Geil, the man with the two right hands responsible for the murder of Polnareff’s sister. And with an ability like the one of Hanged Man, it really shows what a threat it is. First, the appearance of Hanged Man is just so awesome. It appears to be a mummy, but with mechanical parts to make it as little human as possible, just like its user. Hanged Man has the ability to appear in any reflection, and I mean ANY reflection, be it mirrors, windows, water, and the reflection from a person's eyes, any kind. Once it does, if a person's reflection is in it as well, Hanged Man can attack that reflection and all the damage will be directed to the person whose reflection is in it. Hanged Man can jump from reflection to reflection at the speed of light, able to catch up to Polnareff and Kakyoin who were retreating in a speeding car. That’s how fast he moves. Hanged Man was easily the best enemy Stand of Part 3, maybe THE best Stand of Part 3 (At least in my opinion), which makes me wonder why J. Geil ever teamed up with someone as cowardly and goofy as Hol Horse.
#14: Sex Pistols from Vento Aureo (User: Guido Mista)
Guido is the best Vento Aureo character, and I don’t care what anyone says. Now, with that out of the way, Sex Pistols is a pretty cool Stand. Named after the English punk rock band of the same name, Sex Pistols is, instead of just one Stand, a set of six Stands, consisting of ones with numbers one, two, three, five, six, and seven. There’s no four because the user, Mista, is afraid of the number four because of the bad luck it has brought him, and how it has been a part of him. All six of Sex Pistols have their own unique personality and even a slight change in their facial appearance, being a more unique Stand from the typical ones that just stand there quietly and follow their users orders. The ability of Sex Pistols may not be much. It allows any bullet fired by Mista to be redirected toward the enemy and to cause even more damage to them, as Sex Pistols can make it move faster and can kick it around like a soccer ball towards the enemy. It’s basically Hol Horse’s Emperor but with better. I guess I like Sex Pistols less for its ability and more for how it’s personality is and how well it fits it’s user, Mista. It manages to be one of the Stands with the most personality, which is something so rarely seen… Actually, it’s pretty common if you read the manga.
#13: Heaven’s Door from Diamond is Unbreakable (User: Rohan Kishibe)
Araki always stated that if he were to have a Stand, he said that it would most likely be Heaven’s Door. And yeah, I can see that being possible. Heaven’s Door is the Stand of manga artist, Rohan Kishibe, who is only interested in his work to create a story, and nothing else. Maybe he’ll help the gang find the serial killer and maybe he’ll make friends with Koichi, but other than that, he’s only got time for manga. And his Stand will allow him to do just that. Heaven’s Door, named after the Bob Dylan song of the same name, manages to be a rather overpowered Stand despite having little physical strength. Heaven’s Door has the ability to turn whoever looks at it into a sort of book. Well, kinda. It turns parts of their body into pages, anyway, and on those pages, Rohan is able to read any sort of information he wants, no matter what, and no matter what, the pages never lie to him, and are always accurate. This is pretty much what he uses to gain material for his manga, or to help with finding Kira. Heaven’s Door is also capable of erasing one's memory, as he did to keep Koichi from telling others that Rohan was a Stand user, simply by removing the pages that a memory is written on. But the most overpowered thing about Heaven’s Door is the ability to write commands. Heaven’s Door allows Rohan to write anything he wants onto the pages, whether it be they cannot attack, or use their Stand, or can even kill themselves, and no matter what, they will follows Rohan’s commands, no matter what, and only he can make them stop. For a Stand that can’t fight, Heaven’s Door sure is a hax.
#12: Bohemian Rhapsody from Stone Ocean (User: Ungalo)
The three sons of DIO were some of the best villains in all of Stone Ocean, and even the least interesting of them all, Ungalo, had an incredible Stand ability. Ungalo was nothing but a drug pusher who carried DIO’s worst personality traits, such as sadism and a hatred for the world, but unlike Donatello, that’s it. Ungalo just hates the world…. Because. Thank god for Bohemian Rhapsody, otherwise this could have been a rather dull fight. Bohemian Rhapsody, named after the Queen song, is a Stand with no real physical appearance, but when activated, causes some serious damage. Bohemian Rhapsody has the ability to take any fictional character in the world, and brings them to life. And this isn’t just one simple character at a time. No. Bohemian Rhapsody works on a global scale, and brings every fictional character in the world to life. And this includes, but is not limited to, Pinocchio, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, the painting of Venus, Vincent Van Gogh, Mickey Mouse, fucking SPIDERMAN!, and so much more. And that’s not all. Whenever a person runs into their favorite character ever, no matter what happens to that character, the person is forced to live out the events of that character, and if the character dies, then the person they ran into will die in the same way. For example, Weather Report runs into Vincent Van Gogh, a favorite artist of his, and was almost killed because Van Gogh shot himself in the head (Which isn’t what happened to the real Vincent Van Gogh), and Weather Report did the same. They were only able to defeat Bohemian Rhapsody because Weather Report had to pull a bull move and have all the characters sucked back up. A fitting end to an broken Stand.
#11: Underworld from Stone Ocean (User: Donatello Versus)
Originally, Bohemian Rhapsody was my favorite enemy Stand of Stone Ocean. But, as I reread the final parts, I take it back. Underworld is easily the best part. Anyone can bring fictional characters to life. Maybe not all characters all around the world at once, but still. But it takes a special kind of ability to where you can literally dig up memories from the earth’s soil and put people in those memories. Donatello Versus is not a very happy man, always living a life of bad luck and having to deal with bad events in his life, leading to his hatred of the world and wanting to achieve happiness more than anyone, even willing to screw over Pucci to get it. Named after the electronic group of the same name, Underworld is the perfect Stand for a man like Donatello. Underworld has the ability to dig up memories, and I mean literally, with its bare hands, dig up the ground and find memories underneath it, but only as long as those memories touched the ground at one point. These include football games, plane crashes, and even the people that walk on the earth. Not only can Underworld dig up these memories, but it and it’s user are capable of entering them and throwing others into them, in an attempt to kill them. The only way for people to survive in the memories is to find the survivors of the memories and just take the spot they were at. And they don’t have to worry, because if the survivors die in the memories, they’ll be fine in the present, because these are just memories, and not the past. Underworld is easily one of the best Stands of Stone Ocean, and it would only make sense that the best minor villain of Part 6 would have one of the best Stands.
#10: Diver Down from Stone Ocean (User: Narciso Anasui)
Sticky Fingers? Cool Stand, but when we talk about Stands with small but unique abilities, I think that the Stand with the best minor but incredible ability goes to Diver Down, the Stand named after the Van Halen Album and the Stand of Anasui. Anasui was a always obsessed with the idea of disassembling things, such as clocks or cars, which eventually lead to his “disassembling” of his girlfriend when he caught her cheating on her. After that, he didn’t care to help anyone, until he met Jolyne, who he immediately fell in love with and would do anything to be with her, like beat the shit out of enemy Stands. I’ve heard mixed things about Anasui, I think he’s a pretty interesting guy, but like Joshu, he has an awesome Stand to make up for it. In fact, Diver Down is better than Nut King Call. The appearance of Diver Down just makes me laugh. I mean, look. It’s covered in Ds and has a snorkler. What the hell? Anyway, what’s the ability of Diver Down? Well, Diver Down has the ability to store it’s attacks. Let me explain. Whatever Diver Down attacks, all that attack will be put into that object, like when Diver Down curb stomped a door, and Anasui can release the energy whenever enemies are near it to attack them, like how that curb stomped attacked an entire group of cops once they touched the door. It’s like Superfly but ten times better. Diver Down can also go through any solid object, and can even go through and into people, where he can rearrange their bones and organs, which I think fits Anasui’s love for disassembling very well. Diver Down was such a cool Stand, and thank god they put him in Eyes of Heaven. Now if we can just get Foo Fighters in there already.
#9: C-Moon from Stone Ocean (User: Enrico Pucci)
And you all thought that King Crimson was the worst it could get when it came to main villain Stands. C-Moon is the second evolution of Enrico’s Stand, Whitesnake, and is easily the most terrifying, and it is ironically named after a song by The Wings, which isn’t scary. After Pucci evolves Whitesnake, it creates this terrifying bastard, and what do I need to say about Pucci? He’s the main antagonist of Stone Ocean and has managed to do more damage to the universe and the readers mentality than DIO could ever hope to achieve. So, anyway, C-Moon is a terrifying bastard. First, just look at it. It’s red eyes, it’s skeletal body, and that damn grin. It just freaks me out. But, I’m sure it’s ability won’t be so bad. I mean, we only have another version of it after this. How bad can it’s ability be? Well, sadly, it’s bad. C-Moon has the ability to cause anything within three kilometers to fall away from Pucci just by gravity alone. It’s even worse because, with the gravity ability of the Green Baby mixed with Whitesnake, anything that comes in contact with C-Moon is turned inside out, and that includes human flesh. So, if you ever wanted to see people’s fingertips out of their skin… There you go. The only way to fix it is to touch C-Moon again to revert the effects. C-Moon is a Stand that is just the utter enemy to everything Isaac Newton believed in, and with powers like that, it makes you wonder just what kind of ability does Pucci’s third and final evolution have. Well… I honestly don’t want to say. The third Stand is great, but even I won’t spoil that it’s so good. You will never hear me talk about the final Stand of Stone Ocean or its ending because I want you to read it.
#8: Echoes from Diamond is Unbreakable (User: Koichi Hirose)
Echoes, as well as its user, probably has one of the best developments I’ve seen for a Stand and its user, showing as both of them grow as they continue their fight. Koichi started out as a total wimp before he got shot in the throat by the Arrow, now he’s a jerk and everyone loves him. And it helps that he has one of the best Stands in Jojo, Echoes, named after one of the best songs, by one of the best bands, Pink Floyd, of the best genre of rock, progressive. Echoes started as Act 0, and was nothing but an egg. An egg Koichi used to hit Keicho in the face when it first appeared. After that, it soon evolved into Echoes Act 1, a strange… snake thing with wheels for legs. In this form, Echoes can write any sort of onomatopoeia and whatever he writes, it will make the sound. For example, writing something like “Ring” will make a loud ringing sound that can be heard. After that, it evolves into Echoes Act 2, giving it a more humanoid appearance, and the ability to turn the words it writes into a more physical form, such as writing “Woosh” to create a powerful gust of wind. Finally, we get the amazing Echoes Act 3, with a fully humanoid appearance and even it’s own personality, as it curses every moment as it speaks in battle. Echoes Act 3 has the ability to use Act 3 Freeze, the ability to stop anything in its tracks and increase their weight, even to where they break through the floor. This has been useful on many occasions, even being able to defeat Sheer Heart Attack, the thing that was said to have no weakness. I’m calling bullshit on that, Kira. Echoes just found one. And that is why Koichi is the true protagonist of Part 4.
#7: Scary Monsters from Steel Ball Run (User: Dr. Ferdinand/Diego Brando)
I know that Dr. Ferdinand was the true user, but, you know… Who cares about Dr. Ferdinand. Diego used it better and was just better in general. Anyway, Scary Monsters, named after the David Bowie song Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), is one of the craziest but greatest Stands of Steel Ball Run. Originally used by Dr. Ferdinand but after he used it on Diego, he held onto a piece of it thanks to the Corpse Parts that allowed him to control Scary Monsters. A more limited version of it, but still a great version. Scary Monsters is a Stand that is able to turn anyone in the area around it into velociraptors… I’m dead serious. If you ever wanted to see how crazy Stands could get, then here you go. I present Scary Monsters, and it turns people into goddamn dinosaurs. And this is only when Dr. Ferdinand has it. When Diego Brando has it, he isn’t just able to turn anything, animal, plant, or human, into a dinosaur, but he is also able to turn himself into a dinosaur human hybrid, which gives him the ability to run faster, be stronger, have a stronger sense of smell, and can attack Stands. Also, for some bizarre reason, when Diego turns others into dinosaurs, he can fossilize them to hide them in plane sight, like how he did with some guards, and he turned them into a coat rack and a table… It’s weird, I know. Then again, Scary Monsters in general is weird, but god, it’s just so amazing and… insane… I love it.
#6: Crazy Diamond from Diamond is Unbreakable (User: Josuke Higashikata)
When it comes to the Stands of main characters, Josuke’s Crazy Diamond is probably my favorite out of all of them. Mainly because it’s not overpowered like Star Platinum or, godforbid, Gold Experience. Josuke is probably one of my favorite Jojo’s, having a sort of cool attitude like Jotaro but the humor of Joseph, yet managing to be his own kind of character, and with a Stand like Crazy Diamond, it really fits his kind character. Crazy Diamond, named after another Pink Floyd song, Shine on you Crazy Diamond, is a Stand that could have just been another flashy ghost that punches hard and fast, and, while Crazy Diamond does indeed have those attributes, it makes up for it with a special technique. Crazy Diamond has the ability to fix and heal anything no matter what. Whether it be a destroyed wall, a torn picture, or injuries of any kind, Crazy Diamond is able to fix them with ease. This allows Josuke to destroy anything he needs to destroy, and then repair them, such as a car during the fight with Highway Star or a wall of concrete during the final fight with Kira, Crazy Diamond is a Stand that really comes in handy for those kinds of situations. Crazy Diamond is a Stand that fits well with Josuke’s personality, which is probably what I like best about Crazy Diamond, and what I like about Josuke and all of Diamond is Unbreakable in general.
#5: Purple Haze from Vento Aureo (User: Pannacotta Fugo)
Alright, I know I said that C-Moon and Cream were pretty scary, but damn if Purple Haze isn’t up there with disturbing Stands. Purple Haze is the Stand of Passione member, Fugo, a character with a Stand so overpowered, that he had to be written out of the story halfway through, and no, I am not kidding. Purple Haze, named after the Jimi Hendrix song of the same name, just looks terrifying, constantly drooling and is constantly covered in bruises, giving it the appearance of a drug addict, which is already a scary thought. Purple Haze is a Stand with the ability to carry a very venomous disease in the bulbs on its hand. If the bulbs are broken, then the virus will be released and will affect everyone in the area besides the user, whether they be enemy or ally. This disease will eat away at the one infected, causing them to melt away to where they are completely gone, and leaving no trace of them. This is also one of the reasons Fugo didn’t want to go up against the boss, because not only was he scared for his life, but he was mostly worried that his Stand would get his friends killed, and that is the last thing he would want. After that, Fugo was brought back in the spin-off novel, Purple Haze Feedback, where his Stand was able to evolve in the same way as Echoes to create Purple Haze Distortion, which allows him to fire his virus at enemies and even try to cure Fugo and his allies of other diseases. Purple Haze was a Stand too good to be in the series, as it would have just easily dominated the enemy Stands they came across, but in the end, at least it got in’s own spin-off novel to tie things up for Fugo.
#4: Tusk from Steel Ball Run (User: Johnny Joestar)
And we all thought that Koichi had the best development. But little did we know that Johnny had even better development, both in character and in Stand. Tusk is one of the craziest uses of Stand growth I’ve ever seen in Jojo and I love it so damn much. Tusk starts out as this puny pick Japanese plush toy, and oh god, it’s just pathetic. It still has a neat ability though, allowing him to fire his fingernails like bullets, only quicker and more accurate. Once Tusk has evolved into Tusk Act 2, it allows Johnny to fire more powerful nails, but allow him to move the holes they leave which allows him to use them for pretty creative ideas. Then we get to Tusk Act 3, which allows Johnny to shoot himself with the nails that lets him cross through a sort of spiral and allows him to fire nails at any random spot to attack his enemies. After that, we reach Tusks fourth and final form, Tusk Act 4. This evolution allows Tusk to turn whoever is shot with a nail bullet by Johnny to be stuck in an infinite spin, which affects them in the base universe and the other universes, so they are unable to escape their fate at that point unless Johnny were to remove it. Tusk’s evolutions, mixed with the development Johnny goes through with his friend Gyro really add to what makes Tusk a great Stand, as it works off of Johnny’s character. The best kind of Stands, to me, are the ones that fit well with a character's personality. And Tusk is definitely one of those Stands.
#3: King Crimson from Vento Aureo (User: Diavolo)
I know I give a lot of shit to Diavolo for just being a very weak villain, but I can at least give two things that make him good. One. He has Doppio, a far better and interesting character with him. And two. He has King Crimson, a Stand named after the progressive rock band of the same name. King Crimson is infamous in the Jojo community as being a Stand with a very confusing ability, which… I never found all that confusing. So, hopefully, I can give you all some explanation that isn’t just “It Just Works”. King Crimson is the Stand to Diavolo, the boss of Passione, and has the ability to erase time by five seconds. When King Crimson is activated, it will be in effect for five seconds, and anything that goes on in that time frame will be forgotten about by people, as it f it didn’t happen. So, for example, say you open a door during King Crimson’s activation. When it stops, you will just see an open door, but you won’t see the door opening, and you won’t have any memory of it. King Crimson’s ability is the perfect ability for someone like Diavolo, who wants to keep his identity hidden from the world. Not to mention, King Crimson has the face of someone who just wants to kill you. King Crimson is also able to activate the ability, Epitaph, which is activated by that little face on King Crimson’s forehead, which allows Diavolo and Doppio to see ten seconds into the future to predict attacks. King Crimson was literally the only thing good about Diavolo (And Doppio was good), so thank god that he had one of the best Stands to make him kinda interesting.
#2: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap from Steel Ball Run (User: Funny Valentine)
Who would have thought that the president of the United States of America would have one of the best Stands ever that wasn’t Trump’s Pepe the Frog… Wait, that’s real? Whatever. Anyway, Funny Valentine is probably one of the best villains in Jojo, having very respectable motives and makes you wonder if he really is a villain. Oh well, he’s going up against a Joestar, so he must be evil. Valentine’s Stand, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, or D4C, named after the AC/DC song, is one of the most threatening Stands in Jojo. D4C has the ability to jump between different dimensions and alternate universes to benefit him. If one Valentine is killed in anyway, he can use D4C to bring another Valentine into the base universe, the base universe being the only one with the Corpse Parts in it. All Valentines in all universes all have the same goals, to collect the Corpse Parts to better America, and the original Valentine always manages to tell the new Valentine the information they need so that they can be prepared for the base world. D4C is also able to drag anyone else from an alternate world to kill his enemies. If anyone runs into other self, the effect will completely destroy the two and kill them, but Valentine is immune to this ability, and can meet as many of themselves as he wishes. And it only gets more complicated when D4C Love Train is introduced. With the help of Lucy Steel’s Ticket to Ride, D4C is able to take any misfortune that comes to him, like a bullet aimed at him, and redirect it somewhere else. Of course, that bad luck doesn’t go away. It’s gotta go somewhere, so instead, it gets sent to someone else. So, if someone shot a bullet at Valentine, instead of harming him, it would kill someone else in a different part of the world. Jeez, you think Valentine’s broken enough with all this? Oh, what am I saying. He’s a Jojo villain. They’re all overpowered.

#1: Killer Queen from Diamond is Unbreakable (User: Yoshikage Kira)
What is it with main villains having the best Stands? Well, what is it with villains having the most broken Stands? (Until Vento Aureo introduced Giorno). No matter, because they manage to be the very best Stands, and the very best of the broken bunch is Yoshikage Kira’s Killer Queen. Kira is a serial killer who wants nothing more than a peaceful and quiet life without having to worry about anything, but as a serial killer, that’s a little hard, yet Kira will do what he must to achieve it, even kill a bunch of Stand users, and he will do so happily. Now comes Killer Queen, the Stand named after the Queen song, which I bet has nothing but Jojo references in the Youtube comments. Anyway, Killer Queen is a Stand with the ability to turn whatever it touches into a bomb. Once it has touched it, all Killer Queen has to do is activate the bomb, and it will blow up, killing whoever touches it or is near it, while leaving the item that was touched completely unharmed. And that’s just Killer Queens normal ability. Killer Queen’s second bomb, known as Sheer Heart Attack, named after the Queen album. Sheer Heart Attack is the bomb with no weakness, that’s kinda like a lesser Stand. Sheer Heart Attack has the ability to go after whatever gives off the most heat, such as body heat or heat from a stove or a fire. Whatever gives off the most heat, Sheer Heart Attack go straight to it and explode on impact without damaging itself. And Sheer Heart Attack can move on its own from any distance, no matter how far Kira gets. So, after Kira is stabbed with the Arrow, he gains the third and final bomb, Bites the Dust, named after the Queen song, Another One Bites the Dust. Bites the Dust plants Killer Queen on a non-Stand user, such as Hayato, and uses him as a bomb. Whenever anyone tries to gain the information of Kira, not only will Bites the Dust be activated, killing the person in a violent explosion, but time will rewind by one whole hour. Once time continues, the person who was used as the bomb, as well as Kira, will have full knowledge of what happened, and everyone else won’t remember what happened, and the person who was killed by Bites the Dust will die again, and they won’t know why, and the only way to prevent it is when Kira removes Killer Queen to defend himself. Killer Queen manages to have one of the most amazing designs ever, one Araki admits is his favorite to draw, and definitely has one of the most intimidating appearances of a Stand, and yes, more so than DIO’s The World. Killer Queen is such a threatening Stand, and is easily my favorite Stand in all of Jojo.
