Gold Experience Requiem is a humanoid Stand of a height and build similar to Giorno's. Many of its features resemble the original Gold Experience, including the ladybugs on its hands and the oblong grooves across its body. Its head extends into pointed tips with the back of the head hollow, giving it the appearance of a crown. Its eyes have a unique design among Stands, with the 'eyeballs' embedded in cross-like structure within slanted sockets. It has an extended ridge collar on the back of its neck and several indentations and various other patterns covering its body.
When it first appears, it wears the Arrow on its forehead; which eventually falls to the ground.
Gold Experience Requiem is presented as being primarily ivory white in most media featuring it, with brown, amber and violet features.
Gold Experience Requiem speaks to Diavolo in the erased time normally occupied only by him and his Stand King Crimson, explaining that it is able to operate independently of Giorno's consciousness.
It possesses the same voice as its user, Giorno Giovanna, but Gold Experience Requiem speaks in a rather mechanical and polite tone akin to a robot and similar to other Stands capable of speech. It expresses a desire to not only protect Giorno but also shares Giorno's morals and beliefs, looking down on and belittling Diavolo during their brief clash.
Gold Experience Requiem is aware of the fact that not even Giorno knows the true extent of its ability, and confidently states that no other Stand can ever oppose it. The Stand counters the idea of Diavolo's arbitrarily-chosen "reality" (the outcomes of King Crimson's ability) by ominously telling him that he himself will never again come to the reality at the hands of its own power.
Gold Experience Requiem is a close-range Requiem Stand that boasts an incredible increase in both speed and power compared to its previous form (possibly stronger than Star Platinum or The World). Created by the Arrow and born from Giorno's strong desire to defeat King Crimson and exact revenge on Diavolo, it wields the arcane power of reverting anything to "zero", effectively undoing their actions; a power that trumps even the time erasure/nullification of King Crimson.
Gold Experience Requiem is powerful enough as a Stand that it permits Giorno to levitate with it.
Due to its increased power, Gold Experience Requiem has the ability to fire a stone fast enough that it ceases to be visible to the human eye, and has enough power behind it to penetrate through a hand and destroy part of a building.
Return to Zero
Gold Experience Requiem's ultimate ability is to revert actions and willpower back to the state of "zero", completely nullifying them and preventing them from becoming "real".
If the opponent is killed by Gold Experience Requiem, then they will continuously experience death, as they will die but repeatedly return to point "zero": the point immediately before the process of death (i.e Diavolo's endless death loops). Through this ability, GER creates a new "reality", as it calls it, for Diavolo as a form of poetic justice for the many times the mob boss has manipulated reality to his advantage with King Crimson.
This ability makes GER one of the most powerful Stands in the franchise, if not the second strongest, next to The World Over Heaven.
Despite its transformation, Gold Experience Requiem appears to have not only retained its life-giving abilities after evolving, but said abilities are noted to be vastly more potent compared to the original Gold Experience. This is demonstrated briefly when Requiem fires a high-speed small stone with enough power to pierce Diavolo's hand, before it transforms into a scorpion and attacks him.

- In All Star Battle, it is shown that Gold Experience Requiem functions normally under the time-accelerating effect of Made in Heaven and that Giorno remains immune to the effect as long as he has Requiem active. This is done for game balance, due to the fact that Return to Zero works not just on King Crimson's Time Erase, but also on The World and Star Platinum 's Time Stop & Made in Heaven's Time Acceleration.
- Eyes of Heaven introduces a Stand, The World Over Heaven, capable of nullifying Gold Experience Requiem's ability. This marks The World Over Heaven as being the only known Stand that is able to defeat Gold Experience Requiem's seemingly invincible power.
- One of the mysteries about this stand is that if it could transform back to it's original form, when it dropped the arrow.
