JoJo's Bizarre Wiki

There are some cases in which the name of a Stand power is either unclear or unknown. This page is to list all such Stands until a name for them has officially been confirmed.

Stardust Crusaders

Holy's StandLink to this section

Manga Debut: Chapter 121: "The Power Called a 'Stand'"
Anime Debut: SC Episode 3: "DIO's Curse"
Holy Kujo acquired a Stand after DIO's awakening in Stardust Crusaders. Although most Stands are used for fighting, this Stand worked against Holy. Her gentle, non-violent soul made her lack the mental strength necessary to control the Stand, slowly making her ill with a harmful high fever and nearly ending her life by the end of Part 3. It takes on the form of raspberries and thorns, similar to her father, Joseph Joestar's Stand Hermit Purple, growing at the center of her back. However, as time passes by, the Stand starts to grow from every part of her body to the point of covering her whole body, as if it were being eaten away.

Calling Holy's Stand an actual "Stand" is being very generous because it works against its user, barely moves at all, and so far as it is known, has no abilities or powers (other than giving Holy the ability to see other Stands), so it could just be considered a Stand-like infection. Holy's Stand also can't harm others, passing through even other Stand users who try to touch it. It's worth mentioning, however, that Holy's Stand wasn't fully formed yet, and she simply lacked the fighting spirit to control it properly; hence its self-destructive capabilities. How it would have turned out if she had the ability to properly manifest and control it is unknown.

Jonathan's StandLink to this section

Manga Debut: Chapter 122: "Head To Egypt"
Anime Debut: SC Episode 3: "DIO's Curse"
He's able to use a similar clairvoyance as Joseph because his body is Jonathan's from the neck down.
(首から下はジョナサンの肉体を乗っ取っているため、ジョセフと同じ透視能力が使える。 Kubi kara shita wa Jonasan no nikutai o nottotteiru tame, Josefu to onaji tōshinōryoku ga tsukaeru.)

—JOJO A-GO! GO! Stand Dictionary p.33

Along with activating his own Stand The World, it was stated that DIO's semi-precognitive abilities that seemed to have resulted from a Hermit Purple-like Stand were due to a Stand power that awoke in the body of Jonathan Joestar.[1] Similar to Hermit Purple, it can produce a psychic photograph by striking a camera (although the camera is notably not destroyed, unlike Joseph's usage, implying it to be a more efficient version of Joseph's Hermit Purple, or simply that Joseph puts too much effort into it compared to DIO). DIO used this technique to track the Joestars and their friends' current location to send Stand users after them. This Stand is also capable of showing an image present in someone's heart through a crystal ball. DIO used it to show Polnareff one image of J. Geil, as that image represented the pain Polnareff felt in his heart. The fact that this version of Hermit Purple manifested within Jonathan's body could possibly explain why Joseph has Hermit Purple as well.

Stands are visual manifestation of life energy (in other words, the manifestation of the soul of the user). The fact that DIO can use this Stand can mean also that Jonathan's soul is still in the body that DIO had stolen.

DIO passed away the moment Jotaro destroyed his head in the final battle between the two, with the anime and manga confirming DIO's death at that time. Afterwards Joseph and Jotaro decided to expose Jonathan's body to the sun's rays to give Jonathan's soul a means to finally rest in peace. Grandfather and grandson must have concluded that Jonathan's soul was still in the body DIO stole from Polnareff's account of DIO's use of this Stand.

  • In the JoJo novel JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE OVER HEAVEN, the Stand is also called Hermit Purple.
  • In the JoJo novel Jorge Joestar, DIO possesses a Stand with the name, The Passion (受難(ザ・パッション) Za Passhon). Its appearance is similar to Hermit Purple, but takes the form of a crown of thorns and has the ability to view the past and future of the user's blood relatives (including a relative in another universe).

Diamond is Unbreakable

Nijimuras' Father's StandLink to this section

Manga Debut: Chapter 281: "The Nijimura Brothers, Part 8"
Anime Debut: DU Episode 5: "The Nijimura Brothers, Part 3"
It is implied that Nijimuras' Father had a Stand, having been recruited by DIO during his Stand search.[2] Its name, appearance, and abilities are still unknown, but its ability may have been the cause for the patriarch's immortality after being infected by the spore. It's possible that it wasn't an ability suited for fighting, as he wasn't sent to kill the Joestar Group.

Vento Aureo

Sorbet & Gelato's StandsLink to this section

As members of La Squadra Esecuzioni, it's inferred from Pericolo's remarks in Chapter 469 and the diagram in Chapter 470 that both Sorbet and Gelato possess Stands. However, it is not confirmed they were able to use them properly.[2]

Steel Ball Run

Emerald Searcher's StandLink to this section

Manga Debut: SBR Chapter 13: "The Sheriff's Request to Mountain Tim" (Mentioned only)

Holy Joestar-Kira's StandLink to this section

Joseph Joestar's StandLink to this section

Joseph Joestar JJL.png
Manga Debut: JJL Chapter 110: "The Radio Gaga Incident, Part 2"
Joseph Joestar's Stand is made up of vines with thorns similar to Hermit Purple, it has a humanoid head with an "M" like symbol on it's forehead and two lines on it's cheeks. The vines come from Joseph's birthmark and can be used to move objects around.


The Gucci Bag StandLink to this section

Spin-Off Debut: Rohan Kishibe Goes to Gucci
This is the Stand of an unnamed genius artisan from the Gucci brand, who bound it to a Gucci bag. It is mentioned that three bags with the same ability were made by the artisan, making it possible his Stand can grant its ability to an unlimited number of bags. Anyone can use the bags, even if they are not Stand users themselves. It has the ability to vanish valuable things that the owner keeps in the bag. When the owner of the bag is in trouble, the bag will return the vanished objects in some way (the objects do not appear in the bag, but the owner will recover them in an unexpected event).

Rohan Kishibe's grandmother had one of those bags and gave it to Rohan Kishibe. Rohan, not knowing the ability was due to a Stand, made the Gucci factory fix the bag (probably the artisan unbound his Stand from it), but, after knowing the bag's true nature, the mangaka lamented for not being able to use it anymore.

Stand User's StandLink to this section

Petrified by the enemy 1.png
Game Debut: Famicom Jump II: Saikyo no Shichinin
This Stand is only featured in the game Famicom Jump II: Saikyo no Shichinin, where it's used by an enemy simply called Stand User. The Stand allows its user to turn the player into stone with a special punch against anyone his user defeats or is about to defeat in combat. This transformation makes the victims unable to move, however, Stand users affected by it can sense and even talk. This effect can be reverted if the user is defeated. The Stand has neither a name nor a physical shape, but the image of a rock is shown when the Stand User uses it.

Kaoru's StandLink to this section

Spin-Off Debut: The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp
The Stand of Kaoru from the The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp. Its name is unknown, but has the ability to spawn items under Kaoru's skin. In one instance, Kaoru cuts open his skin and gold coins from another country fall out. When used, an aura in the shape of a horned demon appears around Kaoru.
