Similar to The World in appearance and build, its color scheme consists of an angelic white base with golden accessories. Its eyes are inverted, producing black sclera, white irises and black pupils (though its pupils are not seen in-game).
Reality Overwrite: The World Over Heaven gains the new signature godlike power to overwrite reality, allowing DIO to rewrite virtually anything in time. The potential extent of this ability appears to be limitless, as this power can be used to rewrite the existence of anything he wants, steal/absorb souls and use them as slaves, heal himself, resurrect the dead and completely negate almost any defense that the series has to offer (as demonstrated against the abilities of Tusk ACT4 and Gold Experience Requiem). However, this power is eventually revealed to suffer from a major limitation: it can only be initiated through The World Over Heaven's fists, meaning that the Stand would have to punch something in order to rewrite it.
Time Stop: The World's original ability, which allows DIO to stop the flow of time. Like previously, this allows DIO to move when no one else can, and attack his opponents when they are completely defenseless. While there is a possibility for the duration of The World Over Heaven's time stop to have increased from 9 seconds, it has no stated limit.
Due to its godlike powers, coupled with being able to negate the abilities of Tusk ACT4 and Gold Experience Requiem, The World Over Heaven is one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful Stand in the franchise.
Its moniker appears to be a reference to the novel JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Over Heaven, and its existence is possibly the result of DIO's original goal, dictated in his diary, to "achieve Heaven" through the use of a Stand. It may have been created using the same process Enrico Pucci would have used to evolve his Stand into Made in Heaven. Because of this, The World Over Heaven can be considered MiH's equivalent.
Despite DIO finally gaining the ultimate power of his Stand, the Stand type is still said to be the same as Star Platinum.
