When Dio Brando is revealed to have been poisoning George, a police inspector tells Speedwagon that Dario Brando stole her wedding ring from her corpse and tried to sell it.

Manga Debut: Chapter 27: Tarkus and the Dark Knight Bruford, Part 2
Anime Debut: Episode 5: The Dark Knights
Voice Actor: Yuka Keichō (JPN, Elizabeth I), Karen StrassmanW (ENG, Elizabeth I)
Elizabeth I (エリザベス1世 Erizabesu Issei) and Mary Stuart (メアリー・ステュアート Mearī Sutyuāto) were two queens of the Tudor dynastyW who fought for the throne 315 years before Phantom Blood, in 1565. Mary was a beautiful 23-year-old woman with peace in her heart, her charm being enough to make men, no matter how strong, entrust themselves to her and seek comfort. With great tolerance, she took the lonely dark knights Tarkus and Bruford with a smile, enough for them to pledge loyalty and swear to make her queen, even if it cost their lives.

When Mary's husband Darnley died from unknown causes, Elizabeth took the opportunity to charge her for his death, turning the population against Mary. She took Mary prisoner and ordered her to be beheaded, using an impersonator later to trick Tarkus and Bruford into giving up. Their executioner, who was killed by Bruford's hair, was the same one who killed Mary.

Anime Debut: Episode 5: The Dark Knights (Mentioned only)
Darnley (ダーンリー Dānrī) was the husband of Mary Stuart. He died in an explosion caused by reasons unknown to history. His death was used as an excuse for Mary's execution, as Elizabeth blamed her for his death. Darnley is based on the real Lord Darnley.

His name is most likely a reference to the musician Jeff BeckW.

Dan Hamar (ダン・ハマー Dan Hamā) was a fisherman who reported to the police that his boat was stolen by some easterners the night of the incident, but his boat has yet to be found. Police are investigating if these two cases have any relation to the missing people of Windknight's Lot.

After inflicting several bite wounds to Jonathan, Doobie removes the sack over his head and reveals his face and his weapons. A large number of venomous and man-eating snakes dwell inside his skull. Jonathan manages to eject the poison from his bloodstream by exploiting his new Ripple powers inherited after Zeppeli's death. During their short battle, Jonathan catches Doobie's snakes and charges them with the Ripple, causing them to turn on their master. The snakes then devour Doobie to death.

Namesake: The Doobie BrothersW Video Games:
Phantom Blood (PS2 Game): Doobie appears as the last enemy faced before Dio. As a playable character in extra mode, Doobie's special attack uses the snakes from his face to attack and poison the enemy. In Dio mode, there is an extra event where he teams up with Adams to defeat Dio.

Voice Actor: Taketora (Japanese)

Page, Jones, Plant and Bornnam (ペイジ, ジョーンズ, プラーント, ボーンナム Peiji, Jōnzu, Purānto, Bānhamu) are four zombies with an unusually bestial or horrific appearance. Dio Brando sics them on the Joestar Group during his penultimate confrontation with Jonathan Joestar. The four zombies approach Poco and his sister, but before they could dispose of the two, they are confronted by Straizo. The four then reveal their names and try to dispose of the Ripple user by attacking with their blood-sucking needles. Straizo jumps into the air and kicks a hanging chandelier causing it to fall and traps the four zombies. He then strikes the iron part of the chandelier with the Ripple, melting the zombies, thus leading to their deaths.

Namesake: Led ZeppelinW band members Trivia:

  • Different from most zombies who each feature one unique ability, all four zombies possessed the same technique.
    Vascular Needle Attack (血管針攻撃 Kekkanshin Kōgeki): All four zombies displayed the ability to extend proboscises from the tops of their heads in the direction of a victim in order to suck its blood. If used in a careless manner, these appendages could become entangled.
  • In Episode 8 of the anime, this group was introduced before their initial appearance in the manga, when they asked Dio if he wanted them to take care of Jonathan. In the manga, different zombies were used.

Video Games:
Phantom Blood (PS2 Game): Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam appear as enemies faced in one chapter. The player controls Straizo and must face all four together. If the player uses Straizo's full special move, the match will end sooner and Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam's death sequence will appear in a cutscene.

The impostor Captain Tennille killed him in Hong Kong and threw his body into the bottom of the sea, taking his place.

Minako Okura (大倉 美那子 Ōkura Minako) was 19 years old and a first-year student at S City M Community College. She was a spoiled woman who didn't care for the well-being of others. Aside from her parents, she also had a younger brother and sister. She was in the habit of sneaking out at night to be with her boyfriend, Satoru Nakae, so her father started to become worried and tried to follow her. Minako noticed him, and to teach him a lesson for following her, stole something on purpose just to let him see it. She ran away from home and moved in with her boyfriend, but still kept in contact with her mother.

As she told the story enthusiastically to her boyfriend, they were unaware that Kira was sitting next to them, trying to control his killer instincts. Bothered by her bag being on top of his leg, Kira pushed it away, and the couple accused him of trying to steal it. As they got off the train, Satoru and Kira bumped into each other, knocking Kira's things onto the ground. Satoru yelled at Kira again, and the couple mocked his "lame" nail clippers. Tired of the repeated confrontations, Kira followed the couple home. Entering the apartment just as Minako's boyfriend promised to buy her a new pair of earrings, Kira blew him up instantly with Killer Queen. Unable to resist his desires any longer, he forced Minako to cut his fingernails. Just before blowing her up, he took her boyfriend's ears and hung them on her own, telling her that her boyfriend had left some earrings behind for her.

After killing Minako, Kira took her hand as his new "girlfriend" and planned to take it with him to Kosaku's house, but was forced to destroy the hand after seeing Hayato leaving the scene with a camera.

Sorbet&Gelato anime

Manga Debut: Chapter 475: Narancia's Aerosmith, Part 6
Anime Debut: GW Episode 10: The Hitman Team
Voice Actor: Yoshihito Sasaki (Sorbet)

Sorbet (ソルベ Sorube) and Gelato (ジェラート Jerāto) are deceased members of Passione and by extension La Squadra Esecuzioni who were executed by the Boss because they tried to unmask him. Gelato was tied up and forced to watch Sorbet being sectioned into pieces by the boss but swallowed his cloth gag to commit suicide and save himself from further terror. His corpse was later discovered in his home, with the cloth still stuck in his throat and a note attached that reads "punishment". Days later, thirty-six individual sections of Sorbet would be preserved in formalin frames, which would be delivered to the assassins one by one.[2]

The two were described as psychopaths by fellow assassin Formaggio and were always close, leading to rumors about the true nature of their relationship. The fact that Sorbet and Gelato decided to investigate Diavolo's identity by themselves could indicate either overconfidence or bravery.

The deaths of Sorbet and Gelato are likely a reference to Luca Brasi's murder of two enemy mafioso in The GodfatherW series, in which one is hacked to pieces alive (Sorbet) and the other swallows his cloth gag to save himself from a gruesome death (Gelato).

The duo's appearance and rumors of being a couple are possibly a reference to the Australian pop duo Savage GardenW, who were often rumored to be in a romantic relationship due to the homoerotic nature of their album covers.
