|“||Keep on rushing forward!! After all, there is nothing but luck inside your bag!||”|
—Hey Ya!, SBR Chapter 9
Hey Ya! is a roughly humanoid Stand. Its head is shaped as an upturned bucket, marked on top by three concentric circles, and malformed eyeholes of uneven size. It wears a wreath of many small, hollow cylinders, and its lips are pierced by a row of short nails.
Hey Ya! is light brown in the colored manga.
As part of its ability, Hey Ya! is an overtly positive and friendly character towards its user. While a bit demanding with its requests, it nonetheless means only wellness towards Pocoloco, not unlike a trainer. Its capacity for speech serves almost-exclusively to boost Pocoloco's mood and confidence. One of its keywords is "luck", telling its user that luck is on his side, whether or not it is actually true, in order to motivate him, something somewhat like the beliefs of Ken Oyanagi.
Hey Ya! has no combat ability whatsoever and is seemingly functionally useless apart from boosting its user's confidence.
Cheering: Hey Ya! is seen lurking about Pocoloco, whispering advice, motivating him to take advantage of his own luck. Despite the misconception that the Stand improves Pocoloco's luck, it doesn't do anything other than encourage its user and put them in a good mood. However, it does appear to be able to see the future to a certain extent, as it told Poccolocco that he "wasn't supposed to fall off [his horse] yet".
Despite all this, Pocoloco begins having a string of fortuitous circumstances happen to him when he follows Hey Ya!'s orders, through sheer coincidence. Hey Ya!'s motivation alone was powerful enough to drive Pocoloco to win the Steel Ball Run in the end.
