Nut King Call (ナット・キング・コール Natto Kingu Kōru) is the Stand of Joshu Higashikata, featured in JoJolion.


Nut King Call is a humanoid Stand similar in height to Joshu. It has screws embedded both in the sides of its head and its spindly arms; two shield-shaped eyes similar to a bug's, and a ruff collar of sorts composed of many nuts and bolts. On its forehead rests a large V. Its face and arms are also textured with slight ridges. Its torso is covered in a tesselated triangle motif similar to Caesar's headband or Jotaro's belt.

Nut King Call is purple and white in the colored manga and Eyes of Heaven.


Nuts and Bolts

By planting nuts and bolts in a target, Nut King Call creates functional artificial joints. When a nut is removed from a bolt, which may be done almost instantly, the object breaks up and is disassembled. When applied to humans, the process of dismantling body parts appears painless[1]. These separations seem to undo themselves when a target is out of range, as seen when a thug accosting Joshu finds his hands reattached (albeit incorrectly) when Joshu flees[2].

Nut King Call may also fasten together whatever objects are between a nut and a connecting bolt. This is first demonstrated when Joshu dispatches of a bar owner and his men by forcibly affixing parts of their bodies together and escaping as they stumbled around[3]. Later, he does the same to a bottle that Zaihei Nigatake was drinking from and the cursed money generated from Milagro Man[4].

Nut King Call can even detach its own user's body parts, such as a tongue. When this happens, it is shown that Joshu still has control and feeling over the detached body part[5].
