Jojo thread?
Jojo thread.

Why didn't old Joeseph have a humanoid stand?
>>
>>100873827
Not all stands are humanoid
>the emperor
>oingo boingo
>>
>>100874128
I think he's asking why Joseph is the only jojo that doesn't have a humanoid stand
>>
>>100874176
As much as I'd like to have seen him have one, hermit purple suits him as it is. Though if Araki every drew one it'd be cool
>>
>>100874176
Maybe Purple Hermit is humanoid, it just doesn't show itself.
>>
>>100874737
thats a nice idea

Hey Jojo coloring-sama, if you look through this thread would you be able to color this panel for me? Thanks in advance.
>>
>>100875423
tfw internet is capped and I just want to finish part 7
>>
>>100874176
Holly's Stand wasn't humanoid too.
>>
>>100875704
and outlet girl
>>
>>100875749
We were talking about Joestars.
>>
>>100875798
aaahhhhh, now I see
>>
>>100875798
I wonder what stand Jonathan would have had?
>inb4 The World
>>
>>100875845
God Save The Queen
>>
>>100875845
Clacker Hermit
>>
>>100875845
Jonathan would have had The World of course
Real question is,
What stand would Dio have had?
>inb4 scary monsters

I'm afraid of catching up on JoJolion. I just finished the Meet the Higashikata chapter, and going at a steady chapter-a-day to keep my JoJo fix going while stretching it out.

I've read a new volume/chapter of JoJo every day for the past year guys.
>>
>>100876372
Crawling.
>>
>>100875798
Holly is still a Joestar
>>
>>100873827
>Giorno ; I am going to need both hands for THIS.
>>
>>100876507
And outlet girl isn't.
>>
One of things that always bothered me is Holly's stand, why killing DIO fixed anything with her at all?
>>
>>100876691

I guess because Jonathan's body having a stand activated stands in all his descendants because of his ripple sperm. Those who had the willpower to control their stands, like Joseph and Jotaro, or those who had broke through the fever by the time of Dio's death, like Josuke, kept theirs.
>>
>>100876372
But if stands are like mental strength, wouldn't it be DIO's brain on jonathan's body, so therefor his stand?
>>
>>100876961
Wasn't it spiritual strength? IIRC, in Japanese lore, spirits are held within the body.
>>
>>100876446
It's very odd. It's also very hard to wait a month for new issues. Sometimes I forget some of the more minor stuff that's happening but I remember stuff like four balls and wall eyes. I'm dying to know the mystery behind Josuke, though.
>>
>>100877111
That does make more sense. Would have been cool to see DIO's stand but
And interesting that Za Warudo is Jonathans
>>
>>100877111
Vento Aureo bodyswap proves otherwise.
>>
>>100877663
Spirits swapping bodies? A stand that has the power to forcibly switch bodies proves that spirits are held within them, no?
Unless you meant the boss, where it is [spoilers]clearly stated he has two people living inside one body[/spoilers]
>>
>>100877663
fucking this

people who keep saying the world is johnathan's stand and that dio has the ability to copy abilities are idiots

don't know if this proves/disproves anything
>>
>>100877663
>>100877986
>>100878048

The only thing VA proved was that Araki is inconsistent and we don't really know for sure what was the cause of stands. They could be ripple-based, mental based, or spirit based.
>>
>>100878048
Yes basically proves that stands are manifestation of the spirit therefore Dio's the World, is his. But people will bitch because it's THOSE translations of Vento Aureo
>>
>>100877953
Dio doesnt copy abilities, he just has them all stored.. kind of..

>Dio uses Hermit Purple
>The World and Star Platinum are basically the same stand
>After Dio was struck by the arrow all the Joestars started to manifest their stands, Dio is the source of all their stands

I think its safe to assume Dio can use any stand that any Joestar has
>>
Finally got to part 7 after 3 months of reading from 1. I love character design in this part.
>>
>>100875845
it was the purple hermit-like thing Dio used
>>
>>100877986
Well the spirit isn't tied to the body, otherwise they would have used each others stands. Therefore it would state that stands are a persons spirit, not body. Since DIO's spirit is within Jonathans body, it's DIO's stand, not Jonathans.
But then why does Jotaro have time freeze also?
>>
>>100875423
Oh man, I really liked Dio in SBR. I felt bad for him.
>>
>>100878240
Because asspulls
>>
>>100878175
>I think its safe to assume Dio can use any stand that any Joestar has
>assume
no

Everyone developed stands because the body was from Johnathan, the joestars are connected by their blood that's why Jotaro, Joseph, Josuke Giorno and Holly got a stand for each.
>>
>>100878175
But can he use scary monsters?
>>
What if the World is actually both Dio and Jonathan's stand? Like a shared one. Think about it this way: When damage is done to the stand, damage is likewise done to the owner and user of the stand.

And when The World was destroyed, both Jonathan's body and Dio's head took damage. Though Dio's head took more of the force, I think. If the World was completely Dio's stand, it would might work then that only his head would be damaged while Jonathan's corpse would be fine.
>>
>>100878310
I prefer making some logical headcannon from plotholes than just leaving it at asspulls
>>
>>100878240
>But then why does Jotaro have time freeze also?
>>100878175, probably.
>>
>>100878240
Did you miss the part where Polnareff's Stand forced their Stands to switch bodies? It can't be any clearer as to where the Stands come from. A persons spirit. That person was in another body, therefore the Stand tied to that spirit would be switched when the body was switched.
>>
>>100878270

Diego was a great character, but I'm not really fond of AU Dio
>>
>>100878347
Maybe the reason why he could use Scary Monsters is the same he had Joestars' stand abilities.
>>
>>100878406
But you're saying The World is Jonathan's stand, but if the spirit isn't linked to the body i.e body swapping, then The World is DIO's stand due to being tied to the spirit?
Because if stands were the body, then The World would be Jonathans, but it is disproved in part 5
>>
>>100878346
Jonathan's body is the only thing connecting Dio with the Joestars, he is still the one to manifest the stands with HIS spirit
>>
>>100878556
His son is a Jojo.
>>
>>100878417
yeah AU dio was a prick

but goddamn did I love original Dio's shitty reptile puns. I'd like 3 volumes just dedicated to Dio, Gyro and Johnny getting into random shit and more pocoloco maybe although his power was pure hax
>>
>>100878788
Can't believe he won the steel ball

Come up with cool stand names from music:

>Radiohead
>Paranoid Android
>OK Computer
>Death Grips
>Fashion Monster
>Karma Chameleon
>Tears For Fears

some that came to me and sounded alright.
>>
>>100878865
You knew he would win from the beginning.
>>
>>100878977
I always thought Death Grips would've been a cool one
>>
>>100878977
>that pic

what the fuck
what those words even mean
>>
>>100879200
that's the joke,
>>
>>100878977
I would actually like progressive dreamfunk.
>>
>>100878977

>Billy Bad Ass
>Powerslave
>Metal Gods
>Hell Patrol
>Painkiller
>Fortunate Son
>Dragon Attack
>Body Language
>>
>>100879322
ah
its just that /mu/ actually says shit like that all the time when they come to visit and i was wondering what the fuck
>>
>>100878240
I like to think that Star Platinum's precision abilities get focused enough that he basically grips the flow of time itself and stops it for those few seconds, instead of the Dio has all the abilities theory
>>
>>100879985
That is a fucking cool way to rationalise it
>>
>>100878977
Electric Wizard
Dead Meadow
>>
>>100878554
But a part of Dio's body remained, his head. It's debatable whether the Stand he possesses is Jonathons or his own for this reason.
