yo /a/ I just want you guys to confirm something for me. Dios stand doesn't just have the ability to stop time. his real ability is to copy the joestars stands, isn't?
Dio's stand is meant to put everyone else's to shame
Why don't you ask on tumblr?
why don't I ask your ass?. both will talk shit.
Dios stand IS Za Waldo.
Jonathan Joestars own stand is a different one.
And if you are talking about the fight in part 3, then its JoJo who copies Dio's stand.
>Dios stand IS Za Waldo.
That explains why they look over half the globe for him.
dio was using Josephs stand in part 3 as well.
And he even ends up killing Waldo himself.
You mean those purple vines?
Just when i thought Dio couldnt get more fabulous.
jotaro pls go and stay go
So he copied Jotaro's latent time-stopping stand power?
That's gotta hurt.
So lame I laughed.
This has to be the most obvious samefagging since 2007.
I always figured The World was Jonathan's original stand that Dio 'stole' because of his body, that's why Jotaro inherited the same ability somehow. I thought it was a really good idea and emphasized Dio's evilness for stealing Jonathan's body (which is like never fucking brought up) and the whole generations thing that JJBA is about.
It's completely wrong though because Jonathan still just had the hermit purple shit because Dio used it once.
Do tumblrfags really like to embarrass themselves this much? Is this what they come to /a/ for?
How can one man fuck up this hard?
Jonathan literally brings that body theft thing up like right at the beginning, man. "That bastard DIO stole the body of my great grandfather, Jonathan Joestar!" Or something along those lines.
I dont know, i should ask your father.
Errr.. Joseph brought it up* my bad. Not thinking with my head set on straight this morning.
What if hermit purple can turn itself into a dude made out of vines like Jolyne's turns into a dude made out of string?
>Jonathan literally brings that body theft thing up like right at the beginning, man
Part 1: Jonathan
Part 2: Joseph
Part 3: Jotaro
Part 4-7 are unimportant.
The World's looks come from Crazy D.
The World's Time Stop come from Star Platinum.
"Jonathan's Stand" is The World's ability that comes from Hermit Purple.
Yeah but I don't remember it being a thing after the set up. I would've really liked some more allusions to Part 1, and Joseph bringing up his Part 2 stuff too.
Joseph mentions the ripple a couple of times, and Lisa Lisa is mentioned [I think] in part 4, I believe.
The best bit is where he mentions it will be the third plane he's crashed.
>Joseph bringing up his Part 2 stuff too.
Did he ever at all mention the pillarmen?
How can juvenile humor be so funny sometimes?
>Part 4 is un-important.
I bet you think Josuke's hair is bad, too.
Because its simple and humans (as the competetive species we are) love to discredit competition.
Just like when people fall over and hurt themselves.
Not after watching JoJo ASB footage of Josukes horse.
That motherfucker have to be based of Kokuoh.
I don't think so. He could've bragged about it so much, "back in my day", even exaggerate and make up things, etc
His plane turned into an octopus after being shot with bullets that turned into piranhas and he then tricked the ultimate being into launching himself into spaceexile.
I thought grandfathers loved telling stories.
The funny part is, Dio doesn't even know that his stand is just a copycat and think it is his own abilities.
I wonder if he would lose Time Stop ability if he actually killed Jotaro. Oh the irony.
>Dio's face when
if he survived to part 5 then their would be no stopping dio what so ever.
>Gold Experience Requiem
I kind of want to see Giorno fighting his ol' man. Even if he managed to win, I could imagine Giorno not finishing him off, even if he was an awful father, a manslut, and a huge dick.
My bad, i got the names mixed up.
I felt sad for Diavolo, not because he deserved to win, but because of just how badly he lost.
I wouldn't even say he 'lost', the second GER happened it was never a fight, just a massacre.
Ok you got me
I don't think that's exactly how it works. As far as we know, Dio has some version of Hermit Purple because he's in Jonathan's body.
It would seem weird for The World to have stronger time-stopping abilities than Star Platinum if it was merely a copy of it. I think it's more likely that The World is Dio's own stand but by sharing a link with Jotaro trough Jonathan's body and trough fighting with him has awakened Star Platinum's time-stopping abilities.
All of this is just a theory. The World being a copycat of Star Platinum sounds just as likely
There's no confirmation of that.
In SBR one version of Diego had The World with the time-stop power even if there wasn't a Jotaro
>The World was Jonathan's oriinal stand that Dio 'stole' because of his body
This is stupid. Haven't you read the manga? Stands manifestations of the owner's SPIRIT. It's obviously Dio's stand since he wanted to rule THE WORLD
Fuck, why did I laugh.
>It's obviously Dio's stand since he wanted to rule THE WORLD
And Joseph is REALLY into S&M?
There was probably a Diago with Sex Pistols too if Valentine had looked hard enough.
I don't even know why I written it
I think you destroyed him, bro.
maybe it's because it's your such a big fan Dick.
you fuckin idiot
What body you have doesn't mean shit for dick about your stand ability.
Did no one read part 5?
Originally he was supposed to, but then Araki though it'd be too op.
Most horses in anime are inspired by Kokuoh because he was the best
People need to stop speculating, Dio's stand is The World (pretty much confirmed in SBR) and the Hermit Purple stand was an abandined idea when Araki wasnt sure where he was going. Now its been retconned that we are supposed to forget it happened or somehow its the stand of Jonathans body (I believe its the latter because it seems to me based on what happened to Holly that the pure blooded English Joestars had nature based stands and it was after getting mixed with Jap blood did it evolve to shonen battle stands)
To answer your question, Dio was originally meant to have the combined powers of every stand.
>pure blooded English Joestars had nature based stands and it was after getting mixed with Jap blood did it evolve to shonen battle stands
Just goes to prove that Elevens have no class.
But both Dio and Jonathan were pureblood english, and he had a shonen battle stand.
Jesus, Dio would have slaughtered everyone and just been a rainbow in the dark.
>after getting mixed with Jap blood did it evolve to shonen battle stands
fucking barbarian nips, man
Dio had was not a Joestar though. To make sense of the retcon I like to think Dio was able to call out a weakened version of Jonathans stand that resulted in the Hermit Purple stands as well as the plant seeds, it was a withered and pale immitation called from his corpse. Johnny shows us that Jonathans stand was Tusk which also was not a shonen battle stand (even act 4s ora rush was about applying ability not strength) and was more about manipulating the laws of nature.
>(even act 4s ora rush was about applying ability not strength)
JoJo never really gets away from Uncle HnK, does it?
>It would seem weird for The World to have stronger time-stopping abilities than Star Platinum if it was merely a copy of it.
Well, not necessary. Dio just had more time to figure out how his ability works and train.
What if there was? We don't know shit about the universe !Diego came from.
>as well as the plant seeds
Hey, this may have been Holly's stand ability.
Joseph has a stand that lets him channel the ripple easier, Joseph was all about wire traps.
The odds would be astronomical, he'd have to somehow inherit it from a man who isn't born yet. You can get a stand that isn't originally yours, that's how Dio had Scary Monsters, but you can't just create a stand that was never yours.
There can be no doubt the World is Dio's natural stand, what the World's power is a little vaguer.
The stand was taken from the fight against ACDC, wasnt it?
Dont you ever get tired of samefagging your shitty "joke"?
Oh wow, both tumblr and ones ass excavate shit.
What a stunning remark.
It didnt do shit against the person you tried to smacktalk tho.
Did no one else find it strange that Johnatan had the power to make flowers bloom WITHOUT a stand and then it is Dio/Johnatan's son's stand that is about making life grow?
Stands are the physical manifestation of ones inner energy which the ripples also harnesses.
One could say that the ripple evolved into stands.
Pay attention in class.
Or any other of his fights. He always tried to channel that ripple through something
I have to say, you've won the prize for worst misspelling.
I mean, why none of "mainline" Joestars have had such a power and it was the one spawned from the unholy union?
Because the power of FABULOUS.
but GioGio isn't a Joestar
Yes he is, he was produced using Jonathan Joestar body.
Body doesn't mean shit. Stands come from the spirit and Jonathan's wasn't passed down
It obviously was because GioGio wasn't a dick like DIo and was quite nice to people in general like all the Joestars.
maybe assholishness skips a generation
I mean look at Jotaro
Spirit is what made hin go blonde and be a brando at heart but Giogio was made with Joestar sperm making him a Joestar
Jotaro wasn't a dick he just didn't have open personality, but even Joseph was bigger dick.
Hell Josuke was a bigger dick than Jotaro
>meet a fucking alien while searching for a serial killer
>hey I can use this to steal money from my friends
Makes you wonder why Johnathan's dad wasn't an asshole though.
you just got owned
you are now aware that giorno is more of a joestar than jotaro
he's also joseph's uncle
and thus why he's second best jojo
> assholishness skips a generation
Yeah, because Dario was such a nice guy.
