|“||My Stand "Ebony Devil" activates when I'm injured! And it grows more powerful the more hatred I have for my opponent!||”|
—Devo, Chapter 133
Ebony Devil's base design is based on the ancient Sardinian dolls known as "bronzetti", specifically "The Warrior", a small, bronze statue. It has filiform limbs, an alien head with four eyes and two long horns. It also has two disks in front of its chest and holds a dagger in its hand.
The doll it possesses is stated by Araki to resemble an African shaman and is distinctive and primal in appearance.
Ebony Devil itself is consistently portrayed as being black across all media, befitting its name.
Ebony Devil is operated remotely, relying on its user's sadistic personality to kill its target. Its personality was inspired by Chucky from the film Child's PlayW, as well as other horror movies. The Stand acts maniacal and vulgar, frequently laughing while trapping its opponent and devising new torture methods.
Ebony Devil is risky in that Devo must be injured by his targets first in order for the Stand to work. However, when set up, it can then ambush its victim and proves to be elusive.
Ebony Devil's power activates once Devo is hit by his foe. It then grows more powerful depending on the hatred Devo feels towards his enemy relative to the amount of damage he's received.
Ebony Devil can then transfer itself to something physical in order to attack, preferably a doll in its unique appearance. It will begin to attack its foe, starting quietly and escaping its opponent's notice, before causing more and more misfortune as necessary.
Much like other remote Stands, Devo can control the doll from a distance and can see through its eyes. In addition, any damage reflected on the possessed object is reflected on Devo; when Polnareff stabbed the doll, the user was killed.
