Oyecomova (オエコモバ Oekomoba) is a minor antagonist featured in Steel Ball Run.
Oyecomova is an escaped NeapolitanW terrorist who participates in the Steel Ball Run. Having heard of Gyro Zeppeli's participation, he seeks revenge on him and attacks Gyro alongside Mountain Tim and Johnny Joestar in the Rocky MountainsW.
He is a young man in his mid-twenties, with long dark hair and an odd sense of fashion: his make-up's theme is loosely based on the American flag and tattoos representing clocks cover his legs and arms. Interestingly, the netting-like veil over Oyecomova's face is meant to act as sun-protectant and an insect screen, which was meant to give him an advantage in the race.
Oyecomova is a fairly disturbing individual. At first, he seems to be fairly passive, from where he actually warns others not to touch him due to his Stand. However, this is apparently a front—He has shown that he has no qualms about killing others, and displays fierce dedication to the missions he takes up, seen where he was ready to resume his plot to assassinate the King of Italy after killing Gyro Zeppeli. He also often claims that God's will is the cause of why he got where he was.

Boku no Rhythm wo Kiitekure allows Oyecomova to create and attach special time bombs to anything he touches, be it solid objects or even water and smoke. This make his very deadly to approach.
Even before acquiring his Stand, Oyecomova was an extremely skilled bomb maker, having become notorious for his deadly bombs and even managing to create a makeshift bomb in prison and use it to escape.
Oyecomova is a terrorist from Italy. A few years before the Steel Ball Run, he had attempted to assassinate the king by blowing up his carriage. It was the king's good fortune to not be in the carriage; however, five people—including two children—were killed. Oyecomova was arrested and imprisoned to await his execution, but within the prison he was being held at, Oyecomova managed to kill a guard by putting gunpowder in his ear. With this accomplished, he proceeded to make his escape.
Over time, his skills with explosives improved and eventually evolved into a Stand when Oyecomova entered the Devil's Palm. Using his Stand's abilities, Oyecomova attempted to assassinate Gyro Zeppeli, as well as anyone who got in his way; in his rampage, he blew up a hotel, nearly killed Mountain Tim and came very close to finishing off his intended target, which he had stated would be followed by him completing his previous mission of assassinating the king. He was defeated, however, thanks to a combination of Gyro's steel balls and Johnny's Stand.
- Between Oyecomova's musical namesake, a song by the band "Santana," and his Stand's ability to create explosives, several parallels can be drawn to the original universe timeline. To begin with, Fritz von Stroheim, the Steel Ball Run equivalent of Rudol von Stroheim, was the last minor antagonist to attack the protagonists prior to their encounter with Oyecomova. In the original timeline Rudol von Stoheim fought the character Santana, but eventually lost when the former attempted to kill them both in an explosion, only for Santana to survive the blast. Therefore, it is interesting to note that Oyecomova's Stand ability is to create explosives, which happens to be the same way his original timeline namesake counterpart defeated his version of Stroheim.
