|“||That pitiful man. He was used and abandoned like an old rag. He died with hatred in his heart. That hatred is his energy. An energy that activated for the first time when he died. An energy that not even he had ever seen before he died. Nothing can kill him anymore because he is a corpse.||”|
Carne (カルネ Karune) is a minor antagonist featured in Vento Aureo.
As a member of Passione and by extension the Boss' Unità Speciale, he is sent on a suicide mission to kill Team Bucciarati and Trish Una. Although he dies, his now-invincible Stand Notorious B.I.G continues to exist and attacks the gang on their way to Sardinia.
Carne is an overweight man sporting a hairstyle that can be described as an inclined crewcut. Carne lacks a nose, having only nostrils, and has black circles under his eyes. He also lacks external ears, which are seemingly represented by two holes on the sides of his head. His mouth appears in a small grin a majority of his appearance, save for its frown when Carne is injured and eventually killed. His pupils are heavily miotic, constantly staring forward. Overall, his expression appears ominous and intimidating.
Carne wears a stylized dark jumpsuit, on which shoulder-pads are added. He also wears saggy open-crotch pants and sports a large dark headband with the same symbols that pattern Bucciarati's suit. In the digitally colored manga, Carne wears a purple suit, headband, and gloves, brown shoulder-pads, and cream-colored pants. In the TV anime adaptation, Carne wears a black suit and gloves, gray shoulder-pads, white pants, and a purple headband with orange symbols. In Chapter 532 of the colored manga, he has black lipstick, while in Chapter 533 and the anime he has none.
While Carne displays no personality before his death, it can be assumed that he was loyal to Diavolo enough to give his life for him. As he approaches Team Bucciarati with no visible weapons and a self-assuring smile, he was likely dispatched as a suicide bomber of sorts.
Carne was only described by his own stand from the graffiti it etched on Team Bucciarati's plane, implying that its user had a hateful personality, caused from being abused. It described Carne as a "pitiful man" who was "used and abandoned like an old rag" and also described him as having "died with hatred in his heart" and "that hatred is his energy". The graffiti also described that his "energy" was activated after his death and that he was never aware of it prior.

Notorious B.I.G is a strange Stand fueled by its user's hate, not unlike Ebony Devil; as such, its true power is only revealed when the user dies. At this point, it transforms into an autonomous, completely indestructible blob-like creature that attacks the fastest-moving object in its vicinity and devours anything it can to grow.
Carne was sent out by the Boss to fight Bucciarati's team, confronting them at an airport as the team tries to hijack a plane. Summoning his Stand Notorious B.I.G he is killed almost immediately by Mista, yet his Stand power remains, fueled by his grudge. Upon riding the plane, the gang starts to notice unusual things that are caused by Carne's Stand.
